JEDIofONE's review of this mod:
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
While this is technically version 1.0, there's only been one change made. The author found a pretty nasty bug and quickly corrected it, but the bugged version was already posted. Anyway, here's the fixed version with nothing added. So read the above review to learn more about this Kill Tracker. :)
