PostSubject: Im back to JK2 after 8 years! Need Help pls   Sat 03 Jan 2015, 3:06 pm

Hi there,

it's been a while (about 8 years or so) but Im really happy to see such an active community still playing this amazing game!

So I just installed JK2 Jedi Outcast and patched it to 1.04. As I assumed the ingame server search didn't turn up with any results, so I got myself "GameTracker" and searched for servers. I quickly found the SOL Europe server and tried to connect. But unfortunately an error appeared saying that I can not download "DCmod1.2_pk3" because the server has deactivated auto downloading. I tried finding that file everywhere on the web (also here in the download section) but I had no success. All the links are offline.

All other servers I tried I got an error saying that I can't connect because server has another "protocol version" (26).

Im desperate and don't know what to do :shed tears: I would love to play the game again. Maybe u can help me out.

Greetings

If that doesn't work try to turn auto-downloading off for yourself, a lot of people forget about it being on by default.

If this fixes the problem I will add it to the Misc download section.

Hi, thanks for the quick reply! That solved this problem, but another one occured: Now there comes the same message but with some "xxxxxxx yavin temple" map I don't have, and can't download because no download from the server allowed.

Guess I have to download all that stuff manually to play on your server, or is there a better way?

If you mean the Setup -> Game Options -> Allow Download, yes, it's turned off. But don't I need the maps etc. to be able to join? Im still getting the error, also on the US server (it's another .pk3 file there tho).

No you shouldn't need the maps to be able to join. It could be a DCmod issue, did you put the files in your GameData folder or Base folder?

I've unzipped the "dcmod1.2" folder it into the "base" folder.

Alright, see if unzipping the folder into the GameData will make a difference.

Alright, let's try a new thing. Since the DCmod 1.2 is in your gamedata you should be able to activate it in-game (the mods section). Try that, make sure auto-downloads are off, and then connect.

two more questions tho: how many servers do u run and is there a server with weapons enabled? like ctf? or is it random/rotation?

Great! Smile. SoL as far as I know run's two servers - Europe and America. Europe is usually on Yavin Temple with the American server rotating custom maps since nobody is usually on it. CTF is sometimes played and their are no guns. However sometimes admins like to host terminator wars where everyone has guns with near infinite ammo.

Sounds good. Im currently on the EU server and there's just a bunch of Bots. How frequented is that server by real players?

Oh and as you just solved one big problem u might be able to help me out with the strange error I get at all the other servers on GameTracker. It always sais that I can't connect because the "server is running protocol version 26".. and mine is 16 or so (I use patch 1.04).

Any ideas?

Well I can answer one question, but I'm not very good with Gametracker. In my time (UTC -Cool the server frequently has players around 11-4 PM with no force (dueling) tournaments being hosted every Sunday.

an idea: as Gametracker seems not to be able to make a difference between Jk 1 and Outcast, is it possible that Im trying to connect to a JK1 server? How to tell the difference between 1 and 2 in Gametracker?

The servers and the game itself have been fairly quiet over the Xmas period. But the Euro server is normally busy around 6-11pm through the week.

I don't use Gametracker as a program, we have the two servers GT embedded into our website on the right so can''t help you there sorry!

Lastly, here is a topic which has lots of information about connecting to and seeing the servers with the masterlist being down http://soljk2.forumotion.com/t7019-master-list-down

On the right side of the forum you can see the status of our servers Smile
You can also see if there are any players online so you won't have to hang out online every day.
There are allways some bots tough so dont get confused Very Happy

8 years huh? welcome back I guess Smile

Wb,

ye master server is still down, so I mostly use favorites server list (but majority of servers is just ips so I cant remember well the names) or the link to secondary server list found in topic Epic posted.
About GT, like Epic said we have it only as you can see on right side of forums (I dunno if we have GT for other use).
Traffic is usually ongoing on EU server with occasional play on US, mostly 6pm - midnight GMT+1 timezone, most players usually around 8-11pm. If you come to server at 6am, its zero chance you will see anyone, everyone is sleeping that time.

Thanks mates Smile it feels good to be back after playing this game actively for so many years!

Alright, so to everyone maybe having the same "protocol version" error in the future: I have found the answer. Im getting these errors because Gametracker can't make a difference between Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy. Ridiculous if you ask me but that's how it is. Jedi Outcast uses Protocol #15 and 16 (patch 1.02 and 1.04), Academy is Protocol #25 and 26. So I was trying to connect to an Academy Server, which is obviously bullsh*t lol.

I have found a few nice 1.04 servers for duel play (your server beeing one) but Im in desperate search of some fun ctf servers, either with weapons & force or instagib. Any ideas? I loved to play that back in the day.

PS if anyone is fancy playing some instagib today or in there future, here is a German Server with a few active people I found. But as usual it is empty right now. Feel free to holla on FB @FabianSRPWoe if you're in for a round Smile

There isn't an active CTF server as far as I'm aware. However the FC or Force Crusaders server sometimes run CTF\Instagib tournaments and we very occasionally do CTF in SoL. Other than that, there is a JJ Instagib CTF server but it's normally empty during EU times. Daggolin also had an Instagib server but I'm not sure if it's still up or how active it is, especially with the masterlist being down.

Hi, thanks for the quick reply! That solved this problem.

Alright, I've added dcmod1.2 so if anyone should have the same problem you can go here: http://soljk2.forumotion.com/h3-miscellaneous-download

(I can now put my FA duties to rest ^^)

Edit: GameTracker is a bit slow with updates. You can find a more frequently updated tracker here: Portal
