I recently set up a Jedi Academy server for my steam group for Jedi Knight and Unreal Tournament 99/2004, which Ive been hosting for a year now, an I have a problem.

I bought the Jedi Knight pack off of steam because I had never played Dark Forces, Jedi Knight 1, or MoTS, and didn't have Outcast.

So through some fiddling I set up my server so that my friends can join and we can play the outcast maps in Academy, but the bonus duel maps from Outcast won't show up in the map list.

Is there a way so that I can manually change the maps/game modes as the host?

For example, if we're in FFA, could I switch to Power Duel, in say Bespin Air Vanes (duel_bespin.bsp)? I've tried it myself but all I do is leave my server and start a FFA with noone but myself while my server keeps going.

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

So let me get this right you are trying to play jk2 maps in jk3 or are you talking about the bonus maps from Raven.

As for map rotation i believe there should be sever.cfg (or maplist.cfg) file where you can put the map and gamemode in the order you want.

But I've only tried once so don't take my word for it.

BigSpeck;5609922...but the bonus duel maps from Outcast won't show up in the map list.[/QUOTE] How many custom maps do you have in your Base folder? JA has a limit that allows only certain amount of maps to show up on the map selection screen (if that's what you meant by "map list"), so if you exceed that limit, some maps won't show up. Try removing some maps from your Base folder and see if it makes any difference.

I think he means these maps: http://jediknight3.filefront.com/file/JK2_Multiplayer_Maps;117400

I don't have many custom maps, and I already have the zzzzUnlimited.pk3 or whatever it is to give me unlimited characters/maps on my list.

The maps I'm talking about that I can't see are the bonus maps for JK2, the four duel maps that came in one of the patches.

My question is, is there a way that I can manually switch the maps on my server?

Like, can I somehow login as the admin while playing and type in a command that will switch the gametype and/or map?

I know in Unreal Tournament you can start a dedicated server, launch the game again, join your server, and type in something like adminlogin password, and then you can mess around, I just want to know if JA has something like this.

And it doesn't add any new maps to the game. [QUOTE=BigSpeck;5610181]My question is, is there a way that I can manually switch the maps on my server?

I don't know about game type, but you can call a vote (unless you disabled that option) for a map change. Pick a map, tell everyone on the server to vote yes and the server will automatically switch to that map. At least that's how it works on FFA servers. I don't know about other game types.

One of the patches for Jedi Outcast included for new bonus maps, this one right here: http://jediknight3.filefront.com/file/Jedi_Knight_2_Patch_103;2601

duel_bespin, duel_temple, duel_hangar, and duel_training. Those are the maps included.

I know that I can change the map and gametype by putting it to a vote, but like I said, after I took the maps, textures, etc. out of my Outcast assets, I can only access the Stock maps from the map vote.

I CAN load the bonus maps, using the /map command, but if I do that it makes me start a solo game, and kicks me from my server while everyone else stays on it.

Basically, I want to know if there's a command that I can type that will change the map manually.

EDIT: Hey, I managed to get them to show up in the maps list! Even though I took the .bsp, boutroute files, etc, and got the mto work, I didn't realize until now I had to copy and paste the data about the maps into one of the files there to get the maps to show up in the list.

Are we talking about Jedi Outcast or Jedi Academy here? :Puzzled: You started this thread in a Jedi Academy section and said: [QUOTE=BigSpeck;5609922]I recently set up a Jedi Academy server...

But your last two posts suggests you're talking about having problems with Jedi Outcast. Or have I misread something? :confused:

He's taken Outcast maps and is using them on his Academy server.

Why taking map files from Jedi Outcast and transferring them over to Jedi Academy when the same maps can be downloaded from JK Files, pk3'd & ready to be used? :Puzzled:
