Jedi Outcast FAQ
Thanks to razorace, we now have an FAQ that can help newer members when they come to the forum or even veterans looking to learn something new. The FAQ is in HTML format and will be continually updated, so what you see now is not the final version. In this thread, you can suggest topics for razorace to add, or discuss the current contents of the FAQ. The [hopefully] many contributors will be listed in the main FAQ page alongside Homosexual Ewok, Dest, and thehomicidalegg who have already contributed some content. So, without further ado, here is the link to the FAQ.

It's on my list of things-to-do. :)

how to make your own mp skins

razorace 08-02-2002 02:25 PM

That wasn't on the to-do list but I'll add it. Until then, I believe there are some skin tutorials at

razorace 08-04-2002 11:30 AM

Well, I'm going to be on vacation for at least several days up to a week, so updates will be infreqent during then.

wy are you the only one working on that FAQ??

OnlyOneCanoli 08-05-2002 01:54 AM

He's the only one with access to upload new content to the HTML site, yes. But everyone else can contribute ideas and content if they wish. :)

razorace 08-06-2002 07:03 PM

Exactly, I'm the only one altering the HTML code to keep order to the FAQ. :) But if anyone else wants to help, just email me or post to this thread. The ideal submissions are:
[list=1] [*]A question and answer[*]Technically and grammerially correct [*]In a simple and easy to follow format[/list=1]

If part of the solution is already answered in a different part of the FAQ (say, activating the console as part of turning on Cheat Mode), please note that you want the section linked as part of the answer.

I'll personally handle the html coding and FAQ organization. :)

teutonicknight 08-06-2002 07:51 PM

How about you add things like:

How to record demos

How to take screenshots from different angles

How to taunt

razorace 08-06-2002 10:04 PM

sure, I'll add how to record demos to the list (I had the others on there already.) But it'll take some time as I'm doing this all by myself.

thehomicidalegg 08-07-2002 07:29 AM

i think i posted something about taking screenscreen shots from other angles as well as some other useful cvars that werent posted in your old thread for the faq.

razorace 08-08-2002 05:59 PM

yeah, I got them. I just need the time to add them to the FAQ. HTML doesn't exactly do itself. :)

typ in (or just bind) +taunt

razorace 08-09-2002 06:40 PM

I know. :) I thought I had stated that it was on the "To Do" List. I actually have a good write up for it. I just need to convert it to HTML.

razorace 08-11-2002 02:00 AM

I finished and uploaded today's update. I added the following Questions:
  • Why does the multiplayer AI act differently than the single player AI?
  • Why are the teams in a team match get messed up when the map is changed?
  • I've seen people standing with their lightsabers orbiting around them. How do I do that?

That is all. :D

Razor Ace

razorace 08-12-2002 01:56 AM

Today's Updates:
  • How do I make a colored Player Name?
  • How do I Taunt?
  • Is there a way to not have to reenter the Cheat Code for the doublebladed saber every time I die or change maps?
  • I've seen people glide down from a jump. How do they do that?

In addition, I added some more details to controlling the Console.

razorace 08-12-2002 09:30 PM

Added Questions:
[list][*]Why am I getting a "ERROR: filename length > MAX_QPATH" message and how do I fix it?[*]Why do the Bots just spaz jump in this new map I got / made?[*]How do I install a multiplayer Mod?

Tree 08-13-2002 03:35 AM

Has anyone see the special move you can only do on the stairs?

I've done it a couple times.

Seems to be when your running up the stairs and swing when someone is in front of you.

All he does is jump and swing but you can't move while hes doing it.

I've tried to do it on a server by myself and couldn't do it.

Call me crazy but I know its in the game.

I bet others have seen it and know what I'm talking aboot.

razorace 08-13-2002 04:23 AM

I haven't heard from this one before. This is in standard JK2 MP right? Could you describe the situation in detail so I can try to replicate it?

Tree 08-13-2002 01:04 PM

Well I've done it about 4 times.

I think 3 of them were on the map Carbon chamber.

Usually my opponent is in front of me, I'm running up the stairs.

I swing or jump + swing and then he does the move.

It will be obvious when he does it, like the other special moves. I don't think I've ever hit anyone with it though so I don't have any idea how much damamge it does.

Sorry thats all the detail I can give.

I wish the search option wasn't disabled.

Yea its standard jk2 MP.

Ive done it in 1.02 and 1.04.

I don't have anyone to practice it on the computer doesn't want to help me.

I'd like a raven guy to comment.


Its medium stance BTW, guess that would be kind of important :D

It might be on other stances as well but I only use medium so I wouln't know.

I aslo just treid to replicate it playing against the comp and I did it 1 time out of 11 games. it seems to be almost random, but I doubt it is, none of the other moves are.

This time my opponent was in front(but im not sure if he was exactly in front) of me I only swung, I didn't jump (im pretty sure) and I was moving up the stairs at him. It all happened so fast.

He jumped up and did a double handed horizontal swing.

Just bait the comp up the stairs then roll off, to try it.

I guess I'll try after work and get a demo if I can send it to you some how.

razorace 08-13-2002 02:34 PM

And this is different than the standard Yellow special? It sounds like one of the variations of the standard Yellow Special that are in SP....

Tree 08-13-2002 02:51 PM

The ONLY place I've ever done it is on the stairs.

If its a variation of a single player special I've never seen/heard of it. There's no flipping involved. Just jumps straight up and swings across.

Got a link?

pooh, now I have to make a demo :(

razorace 08-13-2002 03:04 PM

Got a link for what?

hmmm....that could just be one of the standard jump swings, try just jumping straight up and pressing Primary Fire while trying different movement directions.

Tree 08-13-2002 03:16 PM

Its a special move. You can't move while you are in the air.

Don't worry I'll get a demo. I have nothing better to do.

razorace 08-13-2002 03:56 PM

Ok, great. This could be a interesting discovery.

Tree 08-13-2002 09:33 PM

Ok got it FINALLY after 9 demos.

Farking took forever. Was beggining to lose faith.

Its 116k and choppy for some reason.

Let me know the best way to send it to you.

You have mirc?

I have a few other suggestion for your faq as well.

I dunno what buttons I pushed to do it. I'm just glad I did :P

Tree 08-14-2002 02:24 AM

Did you get it?

Kreuzader 08-26-2002 11:37 PM

Is this the medium move where you're spinning horizontally as you come down to the ground? I've seen it done, but I have no idea how to execute it.

razorace 08-27-2002 12:13 AM

You mean a sort of horizontal flip like Yoda in Episode 2?

thehomicidalegg 08-27-2002 04:11 AM


Is this the medium move where you're spinning horizontally as you come down to the ground? I've seen it done, but I have no idea how to execute it.
what you talk about is the medium dfa, attack+Jump+forward with enemy in front. the move tree was talking about was also discovered to be the medium dfa, but the animation is stuffed when theres a different ground level where you perform the action (eg stairs).

razorace 08-27-2002 08:21 PM

I think he's talking about one of the Force Powered recoveries from a knockdown....

Kurgan 09-18-2002 01:37 PM

Razor Ace, I sent you an email. ; )

Also, here's something to add: the console commands to make the bots on your team do stuff in team/CTF/CTY games (attack, defend, cover me, etc).

I don't have a list, but I'm sure they are out there....

Good work.

Darth Vader III 09-30-2002 12:33 AM

It's a very good F.A.Q. but you should put (for the cheaters) more cheats to it. Like drive_atst and so on.:cool:

razorace 09-30-2002 08:51 PM

thanks. :)

You're right, I need to make an update for the FAQ soon. I haven't done it in a while. :)

db6 11-03-2002 02:05 PM

I have tried looking around in the forums for the answer to this question (I know it had been posted before when the game just came out, it was a big deal then....)

Did Raven ever explain why Kyle's lightsaber is blue instead of yellow/orange if they followed JK or Mysteries of the Sith?

I read the faq but alas, there was no mention of this, and I guess it is "important" for hardcore JK'ers

razorace 11-03-2002 04:17 PM

Good question!

But, sadly, the answer is no. Raven does not explain why Kyle has a blue saber vs. the ones he uses in JK1 and MotS.

The best explaination that the forum has had was that Kyle lost/threw away his yellow saber when he went to the Dark Side in MotS, and then threw away the red saber after that. In between MotS and JK2 Kyle went to the Jedi Academy for a while before turning his back on the Force. It's assumed that he constructed a new BLUE saber while at the Jedi Academy.

Darth Vader III 11-04-2002 12:48 AM

A pretty careless guy, throwing away his sabers?
Sabers don't grow on trees, he should know that!:D

razorace 11-04-2002 04:53 PM

Well, all that EU stuff about the saber got toss out in Episode II. Maybe you can buy them at the supermarket. :)
