I haven't played Jk2 in half a year now, but when I return today, I find that there are players who are able to crash me out of the game. This was never done when I used to play before. If anyone has any more info on how they are doing this, or how to fix it, do tell.  And no, I will not upgrade to 1.04. I only play 1.02.
well thats the only way to fix it,sorry bud.
Well it turns out that a skin called 'Galek_Mech' is to blame. Anyone who wears it on a server will crash EVERYONE without the skin themselves. Lots of anti-n00b ppl are using the skin to clean-out n00bs on the server because it's a good indicator of them. I hate exploits.
heh heh. Thats not a bad n00b solution. The thing is, not all people that don't have the skin are n00bs. But that definitely ranks up there with the "quigon power" cheat.
I have created a file that fixes the problem for 1.02. assets7.pk3
if you want the patch you will have to email me. Both the server and the client need to have it. But if you see the Drepanon Skin in the server that means they have it installed.
Another way to prevent it is to simply force player models in SETUP. This will make all other players look like you... you may end up being the only one in the server without a 999 ping though ;).
