i played jk2 with my server machine (AMD 450 with voodoo3 2000) and the same happened, but only when i ran a server from the same machine (madness I know...); it was ok on other servers.

is this the case with u or does this happen even when u join any server?

bare in mind that we are (in relative terms) talking about some OOOOOOOOOLD hardware here, and it will probably struggle under the demands of the quake 3 engine

I haven't even bothered trying to join a server yet (i usually create my own for play against bots) I read something about binding a color to the text, but that confused the hell out of me

What do u mean by "Blocky" ? Like there is some missing textures over the letters or something? I suggest u reinstall... Yea btw, to make text colored just press SHIFT+^ and a number then type your text. Example: SHIFT+^1 My name is Prox - [color=darkred]My name is Prox[/color] [color=black]It's pretty easy once you've got the hang of it. :D [/color]

About What You Read

What do u mean by "Blocky" ? Like there is some missing textures over the letters or something? I suggest u reinstall...

Yea btw, to make text colored just press SHIFT+^ and a number then type your text.

Example:

SHIFT+^1 My name is Prox - My name is Prox

It's pretty easy once you've got the hang of it. ;)

I don't think that was what he was saying. I think he means that the text ingame JK2 on his server is all blurry. E.g. "[blur=4]Someone was sabered by Someone[/blur]".

What you probebly read was about binding a key, so that when you press it, your player will broadcast what you binded. E.g. Type: /bind 8 say hi. Everytime i hit 8 it will broadcast hi so that you don't have to type it everytime someone joins your server. Just press 8 instead!

1. Open Console (hold shift and press the button left of 1) 2. Type: /bind (Key-oneletteronly) say (Texthere)

ProxXect explains how to get it into color. You can unbind but i'll get more onto topic now.

Good luck.

the game seems to create the text as graphics when it does overlays, like the "Player Vs Player" in duel spectator mode. but, if he has the same prob i had, it seems to try and use the textures instead

like, when i was Darth Maul character, the writing was in his skin colors, but blocky and unreadable :/

haven't found a solution myself

but try joining a server and see if it happens there too, cos like i said, it's ok on mine on other servers but does the same when i create server
