Ok I know you probably answered this a thousand times so forgive me but I'd really like to understand: how do I use all the good shit I can download from places like jk2files.com? I mean, I use to play on servers which don't support new maps or skins, and I definitely can't play via IP like I used to do with JK1... I live in Italy so I probably don't know most of the servers you folks play on :( So how can I play with my friends using the maps and skins I download from the net? Thank you in advance

I suppose you could host your own server, then all the people that enter have to have all of the mods/maps/whatever and you can all use them. :)

ok I know how to do this. It is farly simple. All you have to do is you and all your friends have to have the same downloaded map to play on it. or else if they don't you can't play, so. Start up a new server Select the downloaded map,(make sure your friends have it or they can't play on it)and start it up. Then all your friends have to do is select it then you and your friends can start to have fun. I hope this helps you, and I hope I explained it good.:p

Ow and the same for skins. But remember all! and I mean all your friends have to have the same ones.

For skins all your friends don't have to have the same skins but they won't beable to see the skin you have. You will be able to see the skin you have but if they don't they won't beable to see it. but for maps all your friends have to have the same map. Hope this helps you.

Thanks Bloodhound, you explained perfectly, but I have one last question... what if I use programs like Gamespy or All Seeing Eye to play JK2? I mean, considering I don't have a fast enough connection to play as server, I need to play on servers which usually have map-cycling... in this case, the server doesn't surely have additional skins or maps! Does it mean it's impossible to play with those skins and maps on those servers?

No it is possible to play on servers with cycle on and play on diferent maps and have diferent skins. If you are playin on a server with someone you don't know the cances ae 1 to 100 that he will have the same skin or map. So that is why it is better to play on a friends server because you can ask him before you start if he has the same maps and skins as yo do. And for gamespy and seein Eye you can't play jk2 on those. Hope I explained it good.
