  1. It isnt a problem ? So this debug message has nothing to do with it ? Anyway, what is "server command overflow" supossed to mean ?
  2. Well problem is I need to play duel, because during this gametype the map is refreshed each time new duel starts. And that is a key feature needed for "Fearis incident" map In fearis there are scripted objects you can push or pull, resulting in creates throwing at your enemy and such, but once they are used they are dead and until refresh its out of order. In FFA I would have to restart the server each time someone dies :S
  3. Well we both run it using that shortcut on desktop...and he is joining normally in-game.
  4. Of course we have.. Without it the game will not even allow to create the game, no ? Well we had it off, I changed one cvar in OJPEnhancedServer.cfg though (set sv_AllowDownloads) to 0 and the result is, he joins, but gets kicked right after with "server command overflow" Yes, I am using the .cfg to create the game.
  5. When I create a server with duel gametype, and a friend of mine joins, I get this error in console (with cadency of like 100 errors per second): Uh oh, invalid force power/weapon/item string :C Friend ends stuck at loading screen and we cannot play. We have the same version of OJP (1.2, installer used) and clean installs of JA, also FFA and Coop works great. Where is the problem ?
  6. OK, first I would like to thank everyone here for expressing his opinion. My previous post was not of course meant as "hey guys, great piece of work you are doing here, but you seem to me you have got nothing to do right now, so heres a list and move up" I am aware that you are no LucasArts, your resources (such as time or people in the team) are limited and the whole progress is going slow. I will answer everyone one by one: You have a point here, but the key to success is having visuals and eyecandy backed up by fine, complex, exploreable game system which will make sure of the stick factor. (by the way, I really like these turns of phrases . Let me correct you - OJP is not primarily developed as RP mod But the core itself of your saber system makes OJP a clear choice for RPer; only OJP is capable of real movie-like duels. I can even say, that OJP can be used in an extreme way - if someone decided to make a Star Wars machinima film for example, honestly, if he wants to record saber duels, only OJP comes in mind. You have a point, but do not fear that. There are far more complicated games than OJP and people play them Do note that the game can be very complicated, complex and hard to understand but because of clever user-friendly admission and interface people will come over it My view of OJP is the one of a perfect game; Jedi Academy is still the only saber duel mutliplayer option and OJP brings the real duels. LucasArts game never had such a potentional like OJP has and that is why I am going to support it. Now only with ideas and suggestions, but in near future I might be able to join the OJP team; I can work with Poser 7 and I am teaching with Carrara right now; I will be able to create animations and other 3D-related stuff; I also have few friends capable of coding and other useful stuff who might be willing to join aswell. They definately like OJP, that I know. OJP should be fun to play (that is now, but it is kind of repetitive after a while..yes Max, stick factor is definately below 1.0 ) and also SW accurate (accuracy somehow supports RP too). According to Wookiepedia, only very few Jedi/Sith were capable of mastering all 7 forms of lightsaber; but we must note, that everyone was instructed about them. And the "1 point, voala a new form" system just does not reflect this. Well, I thought about expanding the point system. No general "skill points" but instead 3 types; "force points", "lightsaber points" and "skill points". The Force/Gunnery/Lightsaber menu shall be reforged into only one menu based on dropdown lists (so it will have dropdowns Force, gunnery, lightsaber) and each of these lists contain the adequate skills. While Force and Gunnery can be filled with something now, we find that we cannot add anything to Lightsaber (besides throw, defense,attack and a couple of forms) and that is somehow poor. The things that lightsaber menu should contain are the moves we have now. And they should have levels aswell. Wookipedia tells about "maneuvers" such as sai tok- cutting an opponent in half, usually separating his or her legs from the torso at the waist - now I do not really think we should THAT accurate since it is too many foreign words and such, so the moves shall be named "normally" (cartwheel, rollstab and such). We definately need add more moves here. Ill write example of cartwheel here: level 1 unlocks cartwheel as we have now. Level 2 allows you to combo into doublejump cartwheel (which will look like this: first jump as classic cartwheel, the second one will be a part of staff butterfly move...it should look good) and level 3 allows infinite combos like these AND also an option of attacking during it. And level 3 cartwheel can be a prerequisite for choosing Form IV: Ataru since cartwheels are a fine part of the whole form. Now I personally think this idea is great. You no longer confuse the poor player by saying "choose your form here" when he barely knows what each form consists of; instead, he builds his moves and thus chooses his form and gets an idea of how the form should be used / works and such. Also it adds more variety to characters and that is something people like; when they have a unique character not only by what he looks, but also what he is able to do. There should be a really long and wide variety of moves available and it must be all well-thought but if done correctly, it will be a real addition to OJP in future at least in my view. We could also, if previous changes would happen, redo the skill earning system a little bit; you gain Force points when using Force, lightsaber points when using lightsaber and skill points for everything other (blasters, gadgets) that can be either based on kills or on actual uses Nah, stealing a little bit from Oblivion, hm? But who cares, main is how it works, no who came with it first. Again, I do not expect you to, after reading this text, bring yourselfs up and start it getting done right away; we have time. Not even TFU can put OJP in danger (well TFU will clearly defeat OJP in the force part because of physics, but it has no chance against OJP's saber system ) so we DO have time. See you later, Lung Drago
  7. Eum, I downloaded both files from maxstates sig again and replaced with them my current ones, but it still actes strange; whenever I am in duel or powerduel gametype, the Force menu is messed up; while all Force powers seem to work good, the saber forms are "available" even without Schii-choo OR there are no forms at all and only saber throw is "available" but even when I put points in there I will not get anything after respawns. Tried to reinstall OJP, but still same problem. EDIT: Yes there are 2 "modes" of this problem depending on which map the duel is taking place; either "all forms without shii-cho (and shii cho is invisible)", which is a case of Bespin Duel map, or "no forms only throw" which happens to me in Generator Room for example.
  8. Yes I recently discovered it too and it is most unpleasing; it should be hot fixed ASAP
  9. Hello there. I just thought about posting some of my ideas here, you might like it But before I start, I should say something about me, since I am new and this is my first post here. Well I come from Czech Republic and I enjoyed OJP with my friends over hamachi for a year; and I can say that OJP most definately brings one of the best combat systems ever made and it has a really big potentional. I am some sort of a RP player, so things that look "cool" for me are quite important (as you will notice, hehe). Also I would like to note that I really have no idea how much can be Q3 engine stretched, so do not let your eyes fly away when reading my text, yes ? As I noticed, you have, or had (since much things, like these forums or website, are strange) problems or were uncertain with practically everything; force powers, saber forms, mercs... which pleases me, I can write everything aswell ! I'd like to start with Force Powers, they are the best .... but before I can even begin with them, I must tell you the stances stuff first though... So, lets do stances I definately like implementing Shii-Cho, Makashi, Soresu, Ataru, Djem-So, Niman and Juyo lightsaber forms in the game and am utterly supporting it. Not only for RP, but it is also one of the very main things that makes the saber system more in-depth. But here is one of my "big" new feature ideas: Not only 7 forms of lightsaber, but also 3+1 special different stances for them. Stances, easily described as: Defensive, Standard and Aggresive. These 3 stances, aside from different cool looking stances and moves, should also revamp the DP damage and other special things even further. Now, the forms "penalties" we have here and hopefully will have more now could be possibly avoided by one of the stances. I take Juyo and the penalty "less resistable against Force Powers" as an example - yes, this will apply, but when in Defensive stance of Juyo, this penalty could be avoided or lowered; but I will loose or weaken the bonuses at that time too (less faking capabilities or even no ones). Got it ? Stances will allow the saber-user to even more adapt to his current situation but NOTE, and that is thing required by both RP and balancing -> changing stances should trigger an animation - a very cool looking one of course, but not a very fast one. And because of that, it is unwise to change stance in a middle of fight. This sort of "transition" animation can be implented in changing between forms aswell; but since of my other suggestion, I do not count here with a number of forms available at the same time. There is an option that Soresu would have no agressive stance available, same as Djem So no defensive one. Now when you look at it, you maybe think "well, he limits the number of forms and replaces the lack of them by stances" which is in some point of view true BUT changing a form is big and radical change, while changing a stance is a slight and an adaption. This should reflect in the bonuses and penalties granted by these too. I am aware that adding these stances would make the game more complex than it is now and most definately it is hard to code and do and stuff..but I just like it And I love in-depth games, you know. Even when it can be complicated, it will bring more options to the mod which improves it. There is one stance I mentioned before (the special one) which I am going to explain now. If not as stance, then as a form. I call it "the Force Stance" and it is something that should allow a Jedi to be quite effective even when he happens to not have a saber by him. When in this stance, Force Powers should be more stronger or even behave differently. It will require to have saber ignited off or holstered (note that Yoda always turns his saber off when he intends to manipulate with the Force at a higher degree) and will also cause penalty to movement speed, but grants on other hand a faster Force regen. Force Powers repeat rate should be also slower (so no push push push push as hell) There should be also something to prevent quickly changing into other stance and turning on a saber when something comes close And with this stance I will count with in these following Force Powers === Force Push === === Force Pull === From my RP experience, I particulary disliked when I said " Dark Side is more powerful" and then, in a manner of demostration, did a Push, nothing happened since it got absorbed. This of course belongs to Absorb section so I will just say, that Push / Pull could use new sounds and perhaps even a new effect, since JK games generally fail to actually demonstrate Push as a strong short gravity burst which actually PUSHES through the air. You know, it needs the kick. I really dislike the "poof" sound, its like Force Breath. When in Force Stance, Push and Pull can totally ignore Absorb. === Force Speed === Not much to change here, it is really perfect as it is now and serves even the needs of RP. Also there is no point in Force Stance here, since you are not intended to move much when in FS :S === Force Sense === One of the improvements suggested here before was, when Sense is on, to show the stats of enemies (HP,FP,DP,MP). That is true good idea, it definately could make Sense more useful even in combat and helps your knowledge of the situation. Only, to be precise, the very first thing that should be sensable are the Force Points - since you are sensing through the Force, you will sense the Force easier that anything other. I think DP or MP should the most difficult thing to sense, thus requiring more skill rank in it. I have an addition here. Force Sense could also bring a Picture-in-Picture view of area behind you. Since I saw PiP in one Q3 mod before, it should be technically possible. And seeing what is behind can be useful, no ? Heh, especially in RP. This addition could be only granted when in Force Stance. === Force Lightning === The only minor change I would like here is the knockdown to happen at the end of the lightning, not instanly at the start === Force Absorb === Well, it really shouldn't be all automatical. Absorb should have 2 effects; a passive and active one. The passive one we have now; it is here always, but in future it should be weakened in this passive state and its full absorbing cappability available only when manually used and activated into active state. === Force Rage === Not much to add here, the ideas with HP/DP/MP/FP manipulations is just great and will work well I believe. I will only add some options for it here: see, these buffs we have here could be granted gratis; but they should be time-limited and after it, you are tired and weakened = overally more vulnerable. Technically same as in JA, but just adapted for OJP. === Force Protect === Similiar to Rage, but for light side peeps. I pretty much agree with DP enhancing and that stuff. Protect should amplify defense while Rage improves offense. And that is how it should be. (getting tired) Geesh, somebody stop me And a new force feature takes place here: Force Directing. The idea is practically of a switch which alters the effect of the Force Powers. So, when in Mode 1, Force Grip is damaging a gripped oponnent and can eventually kill him, but the "telekinetic use" of it can be deleted. But while in Mode 2, Force Grip is harmless, but you are free to move your oponnent. Force Lightning can have 2 modes - a long weak one or a short strong one. Push and Pull can be either a super-strike at 1 oponnent or swept into a large area.... For another RP "need" I would welcome "saber igniting on and off animations", prolly different for each form, for the only purpose of looking cool and delaying changing from weapons to saber. But a "fast ignite" should be available by simply attacking with turned off saber as it is now. Anyone sometimes gets in hot situation. I am going to end now, since I grew tired of bashing into a keyboard and you are propably tired of going from left to right with your eyes. Feel free..no, you ARE encouraged to discuss these ideas as much as possible - simplify them, alter them, comment them...just at least SOME sort of these changes I would love to see in OJP once..! Note that almost all of these suggestions are not posted concretely as they should be in game with all the bonuses and penalties not wrote and such; I rather not posted it and leave it for you guys, since I am not sure with my feet here. Sincerely, Lung Drago P.S.: It is not all I have in head, I said nothing about mercs and such...maybe I will post something later
