I was wondering whether it's possible to spawn NPCs (not bots) and activate other cheats on a multiplayer map. For instance, if my friend and I started a LAN game, is there any mod that would enable us to spawn NPCs? I know it's possible to perform certain cheats on these maps, but spawning single-player NPCs seems impossible - you can only spawn bots with boring AI scripts.
Also, is there any way to switch to a single-player map in multiplayer, or make single-player maps compatible with multiplayer? I'm only asking because I think the single-player cheats were one of the greatest aspects of this game, and to experience it with a friend would be awesome. Let me know if there's any mod that accomplishes what I've asked for.
have server owner type /devmap (mapname)
to get a list of Singleplayer maps
He's talking about Jedi Outcast, in which it's impossible to spawn npcs in mp. It should be possible to play single player maps in multiplayer, but you'll have to make an .arena file (which is easy) and maybe edit the maps a bit (which is not so easy, because you'll need to install separate software for that). That is because you need multiple spawnpoints, and they have to be called info_player_deathmatch. In SP, they are called info_player_start and there's only one of them (of course).
i think there was a way to spawn npc's in ds-online mod. it was something with /g2animent... used to have a guide how to use it but lost it :/
edeholland;4932314you'll have to make an .arena file[/QUOTE] You don't need an arena file to devmap something. (At least, not in JA, and I assume this applies to the entire q3 engine, because that makes sense.) Arena files only make the map visible on the selection menu.

JA will play unmodified single player maps in MP. Info_player_start works as a spawn point in JAMP, the only problem is that everyone spawns on top of each other, so you have quite a few spawnfrags until people start moving out of the way. Then it's all good.
Thanks for your responses, guys. I went ahead and downloaded the DS-Online serverside. If any of you can remember the NPC_spawn commands, let me know. Grazie!
Here's an NPC list I found a long time ago. It's out-of-date and somewhat incomplete, but it hits all the major ones. Have fun!
To spawn a vehicle, open the console and type "/npc spawn vehicle" and the corresponding name from the list below (example: "/npc spawn vehicle swoop_mp"):
tie-bomber2: Spawns alternate Tie-Bomber (vehicle) atst_vehicle: Spawns AT-ST (vehicle) swoop: Spawns Gray Speeder (vehicle) swoop_mp: Spawns blue Speeder (vehicle) lambdashuttle: Spawns Imperial Shuttle (vehicle) z-95: Spawns Kyles modified X-Wing (vehicle) rancor_vehicle: Spawns Rancor (animal) swoop_red: Spawns Red Speeder (vehicle) tauntaun: Spawns tauntaun with reigns(animal) wildtauntaun: Spawns Tauntaun without reigns (animal) tie-bomber: Spawns Tie-Bomber (vehicle) wampa_vehicle: Spawns Wampa (animal) x-wing: Spawns X-Wing (vehicle)
To spawn an NPC, open the console and type "/npc spawn" and the corresponding name from the list below (example: "/npc spawn alora"):
ragnos (Do not spawn - instant server crash!)
He's posting in the JK2 forums.
there are many mods like ds-online that have npc spawning. the command is /g2animent 3 1 (weapon) (model) (sound) (health) weapon - 0 = None, 1 = Stun Baton, 2 = LightSaber, 3 = Bryar Pistol, 4 = Blaster, 5 = Disruptor, 6 = Bowcaster, 7 = Repeater, 8 = Demp2, 9 = Flechette, 10 = Rocket Launcher, 11 = Thermal Detonator, 12 = Trip Mine, 13 = Det Pack model - (example) /models/players/rodian/model.glm sound - (example) /sound/chars/rodian/misc health - 1 - 999
Alright, I installed DS-Online serverside and everything seems to be working fine. For some reason, however, the g2animent command is still "unrecognized." Any ideas how I could get it functioning?
