Is there any way to fix this? I'd go into more detail but I'm not sure there is much more to be said...

This isint a problem, its not programmed to happen outside a duel. I dont know a way to change this, but there might be a mod out there.

It can be programmed into a gamemod such as JA+ but unless you got the source of an excisting mod you can't adept it for a particular mod so it happens outside of duels, so you'd have to make a new one.

Ehehe sorry, basicly only a coder can make it so it happens outside of a duel ;), and you can't edit an excisting mod without the sourcecode of it, so it would take the coder of the mod you're using on youre server to make it, or have a coder make a new mod O.o Confused yet?

Saber lock only occurs during duels - Duel gametype or private duel in so-called Free For All -- by design. It's not a "problem" that needs to be "fixed".

Saber locks outside of duels would be really dumb if people played real Free For All with normal (default) settings: all weapons and Force powers enabled (the default setting), default Force regeneration time (200), and a maximum of only one private duel at a time in "FFA" (basejka instead of a mod that removes that limit).

Imagine if you played real FFA with default settings and you and another player got into a saber lock outside of a private duel. If I saw that I would use a det pack or rocket launcher or level 3 Lightning to kill both of you while you were locked and powerless to stop me. Two easy kills for me, none for either of you.

That's why Raven's programmers limited saber locks to situations when the locked players could not be attacked by other players. It's only because no one plays the game the normal way with default settings on so-called "FFA" servers that it seems to be a "problem" that needs to be "fixed".
