Review of the first version of JAM's killtracker
This is a kill-tracker by JAM aka SpIdErMaN. This eye candy application has several useful built-in functions, including: 1. Statistic tracking (obviously) 2. Spam-echoer 3. JK2 and JA support 4. Note and friend lists 5. Message configurator with a command variable help, color scheme help, and a preview window 6. Media player with playlist capabilities 7. Update check (click JAM in the main browser) and contact information
Having been around since the first days of JK2, I've seen all the kill trackers and never been impressed. Whenever someone joined one of the clan servers I played on and I saw that exacerbating kill tracker message, I repeatedly used my "kill tracker off" bind or spammed the same message in the console. To me, "!kt off" was the only good thing about them. JAM's version may have changed my mind about that. While I still don't see the need to publicly track your statistics, the auto-message feature and music options are definitely an evlolution from the early versions. I realize that those options have been available for a while, but as a graphic designer, the ease of use, graphics, and media player feel make JAM's version my choice.
The readme for this program is located by default at: "C:/Program Files/JAM's Jedi Knight KT/readme.txt" once it is installed.
Pros: 1. Very easy to use. 2. Gorgeous layout.
Cons: 1. NA
A few usful things have been added in v2 and a few fixes too. The interface looks much more slick now, I felt the first version looks a bit big and clunky. The black colour has been added to color schemes now, thats great since alot of people use black in their names. Good job JAM, this is a great tool for recording your kills, playing music, adding friend lists and more.
Once again this version works for both JK2 and JKA, update it now!
