Maddog's review of what was supposed to be the last version of this great mod:
Michael B.K.A. cHoSeN oNe brings us the newest and final version of his mod. What wasn’t the last version supposed to be the last? Hmmm anyway on to the review. As always this mod is a server side mod and contains all of the past features plus more. Most if not all of the changes are for the admins and the person running the server. You can now ban a whole range of I.P. addresses, there is a new command that enforces the no force/no weapons even if terminator or empowered modes are on, there is a few new sound effects added to exploding body parts and the login of admins and much much more.
Personal I like this mod and we run the 1.3 version on the ICoP server and plan on taking this mod for a test run. I suggest giving this newest version a download, most of the new commands will help out the admins and who doesn’t like sound effects LOL. Great job, only time will tell if this is the final version .
Below is Amos’s review of version 1.3:
Quote: Jedi Academy 1.3 is the final version of this great mod - no really - it IS the final version. Seriously. This update is chocked full of admin commands and emotes and just all kinds of stuff. There are quite a few bug fixes and this is just the best mod out there for admin-ing servers. The gameplay remains the same, but now, like if you're in a duel on an FFA server, you can't use bacta, or emotes. Any sleeping or punished person cannot be killed - they can't even /kill - fabulous feature for admins trying to deal with lamers. Ooo ... and if a Padawan connects and there's already a Pad on the server, the one connecting gets renamed. And, and, and ... there's just so much here. Read the readme. Trust me ... you're going to need to read it. It's a freakin' tome, but there's just so much there and every feature is just ... well, okay, I'm gushing. But I love this mod. Remember, it's a serverside mod, so you don't have to download it to play at a server that runs it.
Below is a list of updates from the last version:
Quote: 1.4 - Updates · New IP Range Banning Admin Command ( mbanrange) · g_mAllowPowerups - Enforces the use of powerups when 1 or more (Except for ALL) force powers are disabled. · g_mDebugTerminator - Will enforce the "Saber Only" server rule and will allow no weapons other than saber upon it. · g_mDebugEmpower - Will enforce the "No Force" rule and will not allow empowered clients to have force. · g_mAllActivity - detects all activity by client when using the g_timeouttospec cvar, thanks Lee · bot_honorableduelacceptance - now available without cheats, default is enabled. · Spectator Followers can now be kicked, banned, etc. without affecting others. · mvstr - command that allows you to choose which map you want in the rotation, without disrupting the order. · mnextmap - executes next map available in rotation. · g_mAllowAdminMap - controls the mnextmap command usage. · g_mAllowAdminVSTR - controls the mvstr command usage. · g_mAllowTeamSuicide - allows clients to use the \kill command when in team games. · Added Thunder sound effect to admin & knight login. · Added Explode sound effect to the mexplode admin command. · Most default settings that were in academy.cfg are now hardcoded into mod for faster and easier configuration. · jk2logbackup.pl - this is a perl script for BSD and Linux servers only, designed to archive your games.log file weekly. (written by neoE) · Minor Code Tweaks
So, though ChosenOne has promised time and again that the last update really was the last one, you can't really blame him for updating this one ... last ... time. ;) He's removed over 60 cvars that just seemed to bog the thing down. Doing so has streamlined the mod, making it faster, the filesize smaller and it doesn't use as much RAM as before. One of the great things about JAR (for JA) is that Server Admins are able to pick and choose which commands they want their Admins and Knights to have. Chosen has included that same feature here, for those still playing JK2! He's also customized the aminfo command according to what level of admin you are, or if you're just a player. Two new little cvars were included to let you change the health regeneration of bactas and adjust the value of which the bacta regenerates your HP.
I'd say those are some decent updates for this mod and worth the download - especially with the removal of those cvars. Great job, as always, Chosen!

Installation Linux: Create a directory like this: /home/.../jk2/academy where '/home/.../jk2/' is the path where you installed Jedi Knight II. Now you can start the server with the '+set fs_game academy' argument. Example: ./jk2ded +set fs_game academy +exec server.cfg +exec academy.cfg Script: Place in location of your server's jk2 root directory. View the cron script by using the crontab -1 command to see the script. Next edit the script using the crontab -e command and map the path to the perl script. If you wish to Back-up at 5 am every week, every month, type the following. 0 5 * * 0 /path/jk2root/jk2logbackup.pl If you wish to have an email sent to you in case the script fails, type MAILTO="your email" Windows: Create a directory like this: X:\...\Star Wars JK II Jedi Outcast\GameData\academy where 'X:\...\Star Wars JK II Jedi Outcast' is the path where you installed Jedi Knight II. Now you can start the server with the '+set fs_game academy' argument. Example: jk2mp.exe +set fs_game academy +exec server.cfg +exec academy.cfg IMPORTANT: For the Ban code, you will need to authorize FULL Admin access to the academy folder. Windows: Make sure you have an administrator account. Linux: command = man chmod, then follow on screen instructions. Server Side Only Installation If you install the mod the way as described with a pk3 file, the client will still have to download it when he connects. To prevent this, since Jedi Academy Mod is serverside only, You need to put all files in academy folder. The directory should now appear like ...../jk2/gamedata/academy under Windows or \ ...../jk2/academy under Linux. Under this dir there will be a vm dir with one .qvm file in it as well as the academy.cfg file. Now when a client connects he should not have to download the mod before he can enter the game. Modifications Various Trainer and Knight commands Logging of player IP when player connects to the server. Logging happens in the following format: mlog_ClientConnect: <player client id> '<player name>' -> '<player ip>' Logging of Trainer and Knight commands. Every command will be logged in the following format: mlog_command <playername> Removed the 2 player at a time duel limit. Sabers don't automatically ignite at the start of a duel. "No bacta rule" is now working for duels. Voting system is now limited for Trainer use only. When player wins a duel he now gets up to 25 shield points as well as the full 100% health. Typing !motd or !rules when saying something shows the motd to the player who said it. Typing !version or !author when saying something shows the version number and author. Typing !home or !web when saying something shows the JA home page link. Setting the g_allowDuelSuicide to 1, will enable the clients to use \kill during private duels. Setting damage for all the moves. Various emotes. Fixed Red Stance kick bug, are now able to kick those that use Red. Invisible Saber Bug fix. Spectator following/saber throw bug fixed. g_banIPs cvar removed because it is no longer needed. g_mMOTDShowTime, g_mSlapKnockDownTime - converted to seconds Rcon, Admin, and Knight commands NOTE: [..] are optional <..> are required playerid => Can be a client id, full player name or partial player name. For example if there's a player named 'Padawan' and you want to kick him you can use this: mkick pad; mkick pada; mkick wan; etc. (Just watch out if there are more players with the same sequence in their name. At this point only the first encountered player is taken for the command. Also note that the keyword 'all' has special meaning. Most commands take the 'all' keyword to execute the command on all players on the server. reason => This sends a message to both the server and the client consoles when a player is kicked or kick-banned. For example you can type: "\amkick pada please follow the rules next time." This will send the message "please follow the rules next time" to the server. Also message will be sent to the person's console. (They can scroll up in their console when they are disconnected) Rcon command Trainer command Knight command Description minfo aminfo aminfo Show all the available commands. The aminfo version also works for normal clients, but only Trainers and Knights get to see the admin info. mhelp amhelp amhelp Quick Help for commands available in mod. mwhois amwhois jkwhois Shows you which client is logged in as a Jedi Trainer and/or Jedi Knight. amlogin <password> jklogin <password> Trainers and Knights use this to login as an admin. logout logout Trainers and Knights use this to logout as an admin. mstatus [playerid] amstatus [playerid] jkstatus [playerid] Altered version of status. This version sends less info to get passed the bug in the regular status where not all lines are send to the console. If a playerid is given the selected player will get a full screen display of the status. This is primarily for binding admin commands: bind m rcon mstatus <Your player name here> mkick <playerid><reason> amkick <playerid><reason> jkkick <playerid><reason> Same as kick but enhanced to also take a clientid or a partial player name and a reason from the admin for being kicked. kickgun (AdminGun command) mslap <playerid> amslap <playerid> jkslap <playerid> Slaps the selected player.

(example: /sound/chars/rodian/misc) None None Known Issues When changing some message CVars you can use '%s' to add the player name to the message. When changing the message in the console however, the '%' becomes a '.' so the name won't be displayed. A workaround for this is to only change the values in the config and rerun it. The am/jk commands need a '/' or '' (without quotes) in front of them when executing. Else the command will be shown as a talk command to all players. When sitting, crossing arms, kneeling, begging, surrender, or waiting on someone's head; Or on moving platforms a player will remain in the air and not fall down. You can use g_mOnlySitOnGround to only allow players to sit on the ground thus alleviating the problem. When sitting, crossing arms, kneeling, begging, surrender, or waiting - the player will become invulnerable to attack, this is due to the nature of how these animations have been implemented and can not be changed unless client side code is changed. When running a Non-Dedicated Server (Listen Server), and using the \map_restart command the server crashes - Workaround: Place the VM folder inside dummy.pk3 and reload the mod. Clients will then need to download the mod. If you tend to have trouble with the Mod, be sure to clean out all previous files the mod creates. -jk2mpconfig.cfg and games.log: These files are not compatible with previous version of this mod. FAQ Installation instructions confuse me, is there a more detailed way to install? -Yes, An academy folder in the gamedata directory. Also, make sure inside the academy folder are these files. 1) A vm folder with a jk2mpgame.qvm file in it 2) academy.cfg 3) dummy.pk3 4) description.txt 5) BanIP.dat 6) Readme.htm When all of these files are in, the mod should load with no problems. Open up the academy.cfg file in notepad and edit the cvars that control the passwords. After this, save the file and close it. When you get in game, Click the setup menu and click the mods menu. Highlight the JA Mod 1.5 and click Load. The screen should flash a couple times, then create your server and enter the game. Open up the console and type \exec academy.cfg That will load all of your cVars and passwords you declared in the academy.cfg file. Then, to login use \amlogin pass (where pass is the password) If you wish to load the mod via shortcut, you can right click on the EXE file in windows and create shortcut. Then, add the arguments +set fs_game academy +exec academy.cfg +exec server.cfg Save the shortcut, and double click it to launch. This will launch jk2mp or jk2Ded and load the mod and cfg at same time...skips extra steps thats all... How do I spawn an NPC? -You make sure g_mDebugCheats is set to 1 and use the amnpcaccess command to give yourself access. Next, use the g2 animent or g2platoon commands. Example \g2platoon 0 2 4 /models/players/stormtroopers/model.glm /sounds/chars/st1/misc \g2animent 1 1 4 /models/players/rodian/model.glm /sounds/chars/rodian/misc 100 0 Why is the new config so short? -Every default setting for JA Mod 1.5 has been hardcoded in the mod to 1) Shorten the size of the config file 2) Be much easier to set up, even if you do not run config files. The Readme.htm lists all cVars that are in the mod. Just type those that you wish to change in the config file. An example for Admin Password, it would be: seta g_mAdminPassword "mypass" You will need to place a ( seta ) in front of all cVars you change. Once you have edited all that you want in the config (academy.cfg or server.cfg ) When you launch your server be sure to use the \exec command to execute your script. example: \exec academy.cfg Everytime I idle, I get kicked into spectator!!! -When Raven created the cVar g_timeouttospec, it never seemed to work as intended. Now it does :) You need to change the g_timeouttospec cVar. Right now it is defaulted at 50 minutes or or g_timeouttospec 3000. If that is too short of time, you can change it to anything you desire. What is this Bit Value Thingy? -You have to add the numbers together to get a value which you place in the g_mAdminCommands cvar or g_mKnightCommands cvar. example: If you just want amkickban, amslap, and amstatus commands for "am" admin. You would first look up their bit value. kickban = 524288 slap = 1 status = 33554432 Now add those together 524288+1+33554432 = 34078721 You will now set g_mAdminCommands to 34078721 in your academy.cfg file. (seta g_mAdminCommands "34078721") This same pattern goes for all 3 of the new bit value cvars (g_mAdminCommands, g_mKnightCommands, and g_mEmotes) Other Cool Mods Duelers Mod Masters Of The Force Attack Of The Clones Total Conversion ForceMod ProMod Disclaimer Use this mod on your own risk.
