Just wondered if you could help me.
Got a major problem when downloading maps and models to play in MP mode. Could you let me know if there is a cure for the following problem. I have unzipped the files correctly and then placed them in my base folder, but when creating a server they don't show up. around 6 months ago they worked but after that they haven't apart from Jabba Hutt model.
Sometimes if the skin/model/map doesn't have the right files they won't show up in the menus.. they're still loaded in the game, but maybe the author forgot some files or did a mistake.
Also remember, you can't use custom files on pure servers unless the server has the same files. So if you're trying to load stuff on an MP server most of the time you can't since server hosts rarely put skins/models on their servers.
Hey, I downloaded a few skins too, and got the same problem; the skins dont load in the server, but when I checked under setup/player I saw my skins that I had downloaded and placed the .pk3 files under Gamedata\base folder. One of the skins was called Spidey2k and it was a spiderman skin that WAS working about 2 weeks ago but suddenly stopped out of the blue. It didn't show up in the game, it was the same server I always go into, I asked them if they had changed any server settings and the server admin said no.I never changed any of the files in the base folder, but it still doesn't work. I tried downloading new skins, etc and nothing worked. Then I reinstalled JK2, still nothing. Can someone please tell me whats wrong???
It has to be the pure/unpure server thing.. it's the only thing that could prevent custom files from being loaded.
Try this, open jk2mp.exe.. DONT join ANY server.. instead go to the Player select menu (I think it's the last menu option) and see if hte skin loads there.. if it does then it's all ok and is in fact a problem with the pure/unpure thing. If it doesn't show up there then I have no idea lol
Yeah, it showed up there and I tried a new server I never went to before, and suddenly my skins were all there. Still doesn't work in the other server though...but thanks alot for your help!
Oh...and I also have a new problem where my saber is invisible, and sounds like a metal pipe when I swing and hit something. It started happening right after I joined a server...I had to wait for about 30 mins for all the downloads to finish. :uhm: I think I know what the problem is...I must have downloaded a file that made the saber appear invisible except for the hilt. My question is: does anyone know what the file might be called because I have a LOT of skins all over my base folder and I dont wanna start deleting things...if anyone can help that would be great. Thanks :)
Try sorting the pk3's in your base folder by "Date" or "Modified"(<-- if you're using XP).. and if you know around when this file was downloaded you can look through the pk3's for something. It sounds liek it's some kind of sword replacement you got.
Some pk3's contradict eachother so they might not work together so take the models u dont need. Same with the sabers.
