File Description

Here's Amy's review of the last version:

First of all, you don't need this plugin unless the JA+ server you want to join is a pure server. Then you're going to need to download this. So, why should you download it even if you don't need to? The moves are reportedly smoother, there are improved effects for the new moves, forces and attacks, better management of the new JA+ items such as the flamethrower and grapple hook, RGB sabers and much, much more. Anyway, this is a very customizable mod overall and if you're going to be playing on a JA+ server anyway, you should get this client side plug-in for all the other nifty little features. :)

This version includes all of the above, as well as the new JA+ sabers, holsters and effects.

You only need this, if you're joining a pure server, but it's handy to have if you go to a JA+ server often.

	JA+ is a  server side Mod for  windows, linux and Mac which has the possibility to get a Client side plugin with pk3 files.
this plugin is designed to give UI, animation and feature enhancement to your client side game.
You are not obligated to install the plugins with the JA+ server side part to run a JA+ server.


If the JA+ server you play is PURE server (sv_pure 1), all players and the server will have to install this plugins to join this server.
	so in this case the JA+ server is not server side anymore.

If the JA+ server you play is NOT PURE server (sv_pure 0), the server and players are not obligated to install this plugin to join the game.
	So in this case the JA+ server remains a server side mod.
	the server will recognize the players who have the plugins and will make them take advantage of it to have better animation, Ui and features.
	The players who have not this plugins will be able to join but will not have those better things (and they won't see the difference with a normal server side JA+ ).
	The fact that several players are running this plugin on a server where other players are not running it will not change and alter the gameplay of player.
	PS: in sv_pure 0, all pk3 at client side can be used by the client: SO if the client has to many pk3, he may have problem with missing textures or joining the server.

Exemple of feature:
	-MultiTaunt Sound and Multi Custom sounds in all gametype
	- admin and clan channel autologin.
	- AutoReplier integrated working with all languages.
	- RGB sabers
	- better smoothy moves thanks to the client side prediction
	- Complete view of modelscale stystem with also scaling of sphere, shadow, saber....etc...
	- Improved effects for the new moves, forces, attacks
	- Improved UI menu
	- Capability of allow/disallow Importants new feature provided by the plugin
	- Complete Duel Non interference Code (Visual Ghost effect, smoothy player crossing)
	- support for the Alternate dimension
	- better JA+ items management ( flamethrower and grapple hook ...etc...)
	- crosshair Player name in color
	- gender support for missing skins (replaced by a default male or a female model)
	- support for the New JA+ GLA animations 
	- support for new ja+ sabers and holsters models
