so i'm trying to make a simple flyby mod and it won't load mine or any other mods. i'm attempting to debug (using vc6 or vc7.net) but it never loads my .dll and just keeps reverting to the basejk game. when i try running with a release vm, the game crashes. i tried to patch the game to 1.4 and it gives me an unknown error message. after that, running jk2mp gives that ui version error (expected 6, found 7...something like that) so i have to copy the old jk2mp over the changed one to be able to run it. i'm really up a creek here and have been plugging away for almost a week. any help would be much appreciated, thanks. jd
so i've gotten the 1.03 patch to work but the 1.04 patch still returns an "unknown error" and no one ever in the history of the universe seems to have gotten this problem before which pizzes me off. as far as the modding goes, i can now run the mod in release mode (after building the .qvm files and placing them in the proper directory) but debug mode still doesn't work and thats just too much of a pain to try to work under. please i am open to any and all suggestions as to what the dang crap is going on. i'm using a legit retail version of the game and everything so this shouldn't be happening. jd
if anyone else gets this problem, there is NO solution. i emailed the lucasarts technical support and gave them ridiculous amounts of information about my computer. they offered one suggestion which didn't work. they then said that they have randomly encountered my problem and that it is unresolvable. FREAKIN unresolvable. sounds like terrible software to me. a patch that simply can't work? until now i didn't know it was possible. boycot lucasarts.
