Okay I need some sleep. Had a pretty good game with four people.

Don't worry, you'll get another chance sometime in June!

In the meantime go to this page and pickup the recommended mods:

I was there... played a few games with the bots then one or two humans came on and it got so choppy I couldn't aim.

The bots were fun, though!

Maybe I should reduce the number of bots. Nobody complained before (it's only you and Lath that do that).

Okay, I'm firing up the server while I'm at work, same IP.

Enjoy!

I'll be home after 5:15pm CST, so maybe I'll see you...

Yeah sorry... I got tired, and nobody was on when I came home (looks like I indeed just missed you, as I took the server down sometime after 6). I'll be firing it up again before I leave for work in the morning (around 8:30am CST) until around 5:30pm. If I'm not too tired I'll keep it up that evening until I go to bed. Same with Saturday (though I have a shorter shift), and probably Sunday too.

What times are you willing to play, Skin? I hope you installed the two map packs... (bonus and JK2 FFA).

I think I have all the map packs. I might get some time tomorrow after work (I get off around the same time you do), but my wife volunteered me to look at her friend's computer. I have no idea what level of help it needs.

I might be able to get on this weekend. I work to 4pm Saturday and off on Sunday.

I've got Sat-Sun off as it turns out.

Here's what I'll do. I'll take the server down, and at that moment you'll try to connect, so I'll quickly bring it back up again! (so don't give up the first time)

We'll play, and there will be blood!

At the moment? No. I took it down around 10pm CST last night. I slept in today (my day off) so haven't put it up yet.

However I am going to turn it on again (same IP as in my Signature) before I leave in a few minutes.

So feel free to join!

Sunday, I don't know, but probably whenever I get up, until whenever I go to bed.

Apologies to anyone who tried to get on today. I was too tired, but I did have the server up for awhile while I was testing some new maps. We'll see if I can bring it up a little the rest of the week.

PS: If you get "too many npc" errors, you'll have to remove some of your skins. I got around this by opening the PK3s up in Winrar and deleting the "npc" folders under ext_data (you don't need those for MP anyway).

Edit: This local server is down, go to the high speed one instead! (check trackers) Mods still in use though (optional, except maps where applicable)

Glitch, restarting...

Btw, here's a huge file with all the skins in it (with the crashy, single player extras stripped out, so get the originals for the "full" experience on your own please) that I'm using.


Special Note: The readmes are also left out in the interest in time and space. I'll be putting those in the zip and uploading it again soon, so please don't think I'm leaving out any credits... I also left in a disclaimer placeholder until then.

The file was revised, so I suggest if anyone got it previously, to get it again, and replace the old files with this one. A few skins were removed due to glitches as well.

I've decided that the server will probably not be up today, as I have work to do and need the system resources. See you next time!

208.43.15.76:29070 (Up in a few minutes)

(I'm tweaking the settings today, but the kinks should be worked out by this weekend, so have patience)

6/17/09

Yep, folks, I finally broke down and rented a server. So, after eons of downtime, and my recent attempts at hosting sporadically off my home PC, I've thrown in for a decent server from EscapedTurkey for the summer.

Now I repeat, this is ONLY for the summer. I probably won't have the cash to spare or time to monitor it after this, so enjoy it while you can!

I'm currently uploading files and tweaking settings, so if you try it now, it may be buggy, but bear with me! I hope to have it smoothed out and running well by this weekend.

However, if you're curious and want to try it out, please go here:

http://strategy.jediknight.net/jka/server_status.shtml

The trackers should be updated, and I will restart it once a day to make sure things are working properly. Please shoot me an email or PM if things are not looking right.

The rotation should be two rounds of siege (six matches), followed by a run through of the JA basic maps, then the JA Bonus map pack, then I CTF (then the CTF bonus map). There's a "mayhem" map thrown in there every once in awhile too (a Duel map set to FFA, meaning it's basically a mosh pit!).

Dismemberment is enabled, and tons of Star Wars skins are supported... I will also try to get some Siege Destroyer/Asteroids Mod setup for later this summer (if they'll allow it).

Here's the IP:

All summer. So unless I come into some extra money, it'll go down in August.

I hope people aren't waiting to just fight me personally, because I'm on vacation right now, so I'm not at home. I won't be back until late Sunday. But in the meantime the server is up on a rotation (Siege, FFA, CTF, repeat, Raven Bonus & vanilla JKA maps) and I have remote access via the web.

I'll try to go on tonight just before and after Midnight CST if anyone wants to play. I haven't played in ages, so I'm easy to be schooled!

Another friend of mine may have a vent server we can use sometime before the end of the summer...

Vent server is up:


A "Vent" server for the game is now up! So now you can voice chat with
other players (assuming they're logged in as well).

Get Ventrilo HERE.

Vent Server: vent8.gameservers.com
Port #: 4544

Channel "A" Meatgrinder


Thanks to Nedak & co. for the use of the server!

Okay the server tracker (Jedi Tracker) is down, however the server ITSELF should be unaffected (it's hosted by ET, a different company).

So just join the server as you normally would, you just won't see whow is in or what map is being played via the web page until the tracker is fixed. You can check the status with programs like Qtracker however.

Server tracker is back up.

I start classes in less than two weeks, and then I'm basically out of time to play. I hadn't considered running the server past August, but we'll see if there's any interest and if I can spare the cash. It would be nice to have someplace to play a bit on the weekends with the little spare time I'd have. But this is my final semester of my degree, so we'll see...

Just a heads up, but unless something extraordinary happens, the server is GOING DOWN the week of September 15th.

Not only do I need to save money, but I won't have much time to play then anyway. So enjoy it while it lasts! And while the server hasn't been as popular as I had hoped (I guess what can I expect for a six year old game, and using settings that are too HARDCORE for your average player, heh), but it's still been great!

So get in a few more frags, a few more caps, a few more objectives complete... while the getting's good!

I just played a few rounds tonight... believe it or not I have the darn thing running in Linux but it keeps crashing in Vista!

You have a lot of bots! I was creamed.. it was as if all the bots had it in for me and the game was "smear the human."

Still a bit of fun, though.

I'm glad you had a good time! I threw in a lot of bots to keep it interesting, but I agree that a few of the smaller maps don't need 12 in that confined space. Though I wasn't remiss in terming those the "Mayhem" rounds... hoping to duplicate the experience of a Mosh Pit, but with weapons...

I may be able to get on tonight, though this weekend is going to be pretty crazy at work, plus classes start Monday (however, since part of my schedule is in limbo, Mon-Tues may not be that busy).

If you're going to be on tonight again, let me know...

Yeah, I've got a graduate class starting Tuesday. I'm only taking one this semester, but I'm told its the hardest, most-involved, so that's probably a good thing. I'm not sure if I'll get on tonight, but I'll try to find some time one evening this week. I'm actually working both Saturday and Sunday this week -new software testing/validation at work.

I'm still surprised at the ease with which I was able to play in Linux. The Frame Rate was probably not as good as it would on a decent XP machine, but I've been on servers with a good machine where it was far choppier.

I need to upgrade my graphics card for Vista/XP use. I have an older nVidia and as soon as I enter a game like BF or JA, it freezes with the screen looking like a kaleidescope and I have to reboot. At first I thought it was my power supply, so I replaced it. Then I thought it was a poor install of XP, so I upgraded to Vista. I even formated the Win drive and installed there. Then I thought it could be a problem associated with not having the SATA driver loaded (Linux doesn't need all that garbage).

The only thing left is a bad mobo or bad video card.

I'm telling you, you know Ubuntu Linux has come a long way when it's easier to install and manage than Windows.

Yeah, my parents use Ubuntu at home, though it's on a pc with a non-working sound card. They just use it for word processing and web browsing, basically.

I refused to "upgrade" to XP (mostly to save memory), but I may be "forced to" as there are a growing number of games that supposedly require it that I'm interested in. I also need to upgrade to a gig or two of ram... blah. Vista and "Windows 7" are right out... they require way too much processing power and memory to do the same crap as before, plus there are DRM issues (sorry, but I don't want to only use M$ approved software and reserve the right to upgrade/downgrade when I feel like it).

Anyway, I'm glad you were able to get on! I thought I had heard of Q3 working in linux, so even though there's no official port of JA, that isn't too shocking. I'm sorry we haven't gotten to play.

My class schedule currently is Tuesday through Friday and I'll be working Sundays (subject to change). Thankfully I have no morning classes, but it looks like I'll be writing over a hundred pages this semester. Good luck!

PS: The JA server is paid for through Sept 14th. On the 15th they'll charge me again automatically unless I cancel it. So I'm debating whether to continue it or not. I probably won't have time by then, but if people want to use it enough, maybe I could justify the added expense. Once I'm out of here though I'm going to really have to pinch pennies, so it probably won't be back for the foreseeable future.

I hear you.. even with one class my writing is likely to be many pages. Fun stuff though!

My wife actually seems to prefer Ubuntu over Windows ... I have both loaded and she's restarted to get to her Ubuntu desktop several times after I've left it in Vista!

I thought about playing this game today so I said "what the heck" and renewed it for another month.

So the server will be up AT LEAST until Nov 15. Maybe I'll renew it one more time after that for my birthday? We'll see.

Fabulous to see you are still playing uncle Jed's Academy. May the Force Be With You, Kurgan.

Wilhuf, I haven't heard that name in a long time ...

... a long time.

Oh, good question about vent, I'll check.
