  1. hey amidala, i'm trying to put together all of the JK demos i can find into one demo archive site (and possibly render a few to youtube) - i saw you posted some years ago that you have a bunch (even pre-patch are fine), do you still have these sitting around somewhere?

  2. I prefer to keep Mon Mothma at Yavin 4 and have every type of factory on the ground, and a highest-level space station. Yavin 4 is in a safe rear area, and I just build everything there at a discount then move them where they are needed. I put lots of mining facilities on the planets that produce the most credits, except if they are on the border near Imperial planets.
  3. To win offensive space battles I have found that a mix of forces works well. I have at least one of each capital ship, 4 squadrons of X-wings, 4 squadrons of Y-wings, and 2 Fleet Commanders because they give bonuses to all ships. I have all of the fleet attack the strongest enemy ship first, targeting the ship's shield generator or engines first, then the turbo lasers, hangar, laser cannons, etc. until the ship is destroyed. Then have the whole fleet attack the next strongest ship next, and so on. To win space battles when attacked, the key as a Rebel is to have 2 Ion Cannons on the planet, the strongest possible space station, and again a mix of forces. Having 2 Ion Cannons means it takes half as long for the next ion blast to be available. As soon as the enemy fleet appears, use an Ion Cannon blast to disable the closest, biggest enemy ship. Move your fleet close to the enemy and have the whole fleet attack the biggest non-disabled ship that is closest to the space station. Attack the ship's shield generator, engines, turbo lasers, hanger, etc. Another ion shot should be available by now, so disable the biggest non-disabled enemy ship that is closest to the space station. Repeat. Send your X-wings against enemy TIE fighters and bombers, Y-wings against the disabled capital ships. Keep using ion cannon shots as soon as they become available to disable newly arriving capital ships. The Ion Cannons only disable the ship but don't damage it, so don't waste shots on ships that are already disabled. Try to disable the capital ships to keep them away from your space station. Also, remember to pull in reinforcements if your ship population drops below 25.

Also, you will be able to play the latest games, instead of struggling to get a 5 year-old card to play a 3 year-old game.
  5. Telling people to edit their asset files is really bad advice. It will guarantee that they won't be able to connect to pure servers. It's much better to copy the files you want to modify, modify them, duplicate the directory structure\path that the file is normally in, and then make the files into a .pk3 file with a name that starts with b through z. That way the modified files will override the same files in the assets files, creating the same effect but without altering the assets files.
  6. Go to http://www.whatismyip.com to get the external IP address assigned to you by your ISP. That is the IP address your friends should use with the /connect command. Go to http://www.chopshopservers.com/education/ and click on the link "Running a Server from Home".
  7. /amslap (even the name sounds abusive) /amempower is used by admins to give themselves advantages over regular players so they can "own" them. It was toned downed in JA+ 2.3 from ridiculously unfair to just unfair (especially on no-Force servers). /amsleep is used for more than "time-out". DruggedSith was winning a saber-only FFA on a clan server fair and square. They said "We can't let this noob win" so they used /amsleep on him to keep him from scoring any more points, then laughed at him and said "pwned!" And to clear up a misstatement, you can refuse to be teleported in JA+ 2.3 but you don't have to "give permission" to be teleported. With JA+ 2.3 you will mostly avoid being teleported into lava, but you can still be teleported into a locked room full of rancors or wampas (unless they use the /amrefuseTele command, which most people don't know about). It's not good that Red Slushie has abuse-prone commands, but let's be real. The fact that you can count the number of servers running Red Slushie on one hand means any theoretical abuse that happens (if it happens) is nothing compared to the abuse that has occured and continues to occur on hundreds of JA+ servers. Remember, many refuse to use version 2.3, so there is still ampunishing, amslaying, and amtele-into-lava occuring on JA+ servers, besides the amslapping, amsleeping, and amempowering going on in JA+ 2.3. Yes, it's not good that Red Slushie has those commands. On that we agree. Yes, it's good that slider removed the two worst commands, created the Alternate Dimension, and modified some of the other commands, and resisted all the whining to change things back (which I do respect). On that we agree. It's a pity that many JA+ servers won't use it, or use it but disable the Alternate Dimension. But you can't change history. No matter what happens with Red Slushie in the future, nothing will ever change the fact that virtually every Jedi Academy player who was ever abused (and is being abused) by ampunish, amslay, amslap, amtele-into-lava, amempower, amsleep, etc. was abused (and is being abused) on a JA+ server. And anyone associated with JA+ lecturing a modder about abuse commands, given JA+'s history, is...well...I better not say it, so I won't get flamed again.

  9. Windows Start Button -> Run... -> dxdiag.exe. On the Display tab, Device box, what is the Name and Manufacturer of your video chip? If it's not NVIDIA or ATI you're going to have problems because you need OpenGL support. You might be able to use SciTech GLDirect 5.0 to provide OpenGL through DirectX http://www.scitechsoft.com/products/ent/gld_home.php If you can't get it to work, try KOTOR I or Galactic Battlegrounds for entertainment, both have been discounted.
  10. I think it would be a good idea as a general rule that if a moderator of any type has a high level of personal involvement with the subject being discussed in a thread they should then recuse themselves from behaving as a moderator in that particular thread. Otherwise, the conflict of interest is obvious and might lead them to behave differently then they would otherwise. There are always other moderators, super moderators, and administrators available if necessary. It's just impossible for any human being to remain fair and objective in that situation. I think that this is a good universal principle in general for all forums and moderators, and it isn't directed at any particular individual. Just my two cents.
  11. Yeah, I went back through the thread from the beginning, and now I see what you mean about things getting out of hand, like this guy for example: Thanks for the warning, that's really really really really good advice, and I hope everyone follows it. (P.S. I saved the complete text of that person's original post just in case it gets "revised" or accidentally deleted)
  12. VaderR's post was originally a separate thread about the same topic. I posted that link to show him we had just covered that question. Some moderator or admin combined the two threads into one after I posted that. But I'll go back and edit out the link if it confuses you
  13. To slider's credit, he did make the Alternate Dimension the default entering dimension when JA+ 2.3 final was released (as I mentioned above, this thread is three months old). Server operators can change it to make the Primary Dimension the entering dimension, or completely disable the Alternate Dimension, and some have done exactly that. Some installed 2.3 obviously without reading any of the documentation, then asked "how come I can't get the grapple to work"? They had entered the Alternate Dimension by default, where the grapple is disabled, and either didn't realize it or didn't understand the properties of the dimensions. Instead of just using /amaltdim as soon as they entered the server, they reversed the default behavior or disabled the Alternate Dimension completely instead.
  14. You have a corrupted file, you should uninstall with Windows Add\Remove Programs, then reinstall. After you do that you need to download the 1.01 patch and update your game.
  15. Protocol 25 is Jedi Academy 1.00. Protocol 26 is Jedi Academy 1.01. About 30 servers are using protocol 25. About 500 servers are using protocol 26.
