Ok, I downloaded the map House of Madness, extracted it into the GameData folder, and when I play the game I type map sp_houseofmadness, and it says there is no such thing. I'm new to this and I know I'm not an un0intelligent being. I also downloaded the the new 1.03 patch and have double-clicked it 3,000 times and it just sits there like a worthless icon. Can someone please explain to me how to work all of this? I also downloaded the model of Darth Vader and don't even know how to use that either. Someone please help me or email me. Thanks.
When you download a file.. it's usually in a .zip format. Open the .zip file and you will find a couple more files inside (usually a .pk3 file and a readme.txt file) (btw you need WinZip for this.. freely available at http://www.winzip.com ) Press the "Extract" button at the top and a window pops up, put the path to your "base" folder and then press the Extract button again.
Now it should work. The 1.03 pk3 file should just be in the base folder you don't need to open it, it will automatically alter the necessary files. Just load JK2 like you normally would :D.
Thanks for the info bud. I appreciata it. I do have another quick question though.....I know Vader is accassible in multiplayer, but is there any way to spawn him into a single player game. You know, like npc_spawn Luke would bring in Luke, etc. Can this work with Vader, I can't seem to get it to. Thanks again.
To spawn vader you will need the desann to vader pk3 file, it is a skin pack made to replace desann with vader in sp. if jk2files.com is back up go and look for it. vader_desann.zip
as for spawning, check out my instructions : http://filefreaks.fragland.net/showthread.php?s=&postid=21964#post21964
