    well as information on what was addressed in this update. If
    you are experiencing any issues that are not fixed by this
    update, please check the Troubleshooting Guide which is

    the game's launcher.

    The use of this update is pursuant to the Software License
    Limited Warranty found in the manual of the game.

    This update is compatible with your saved games.

    All Multiplayer users must use Jedi Outcast version 1.03.

    Instructions for Installing the Jedi Outcast Update
    ---------------------------------------------------
    After downloading the update, double click on JKIIUpdate.exe
    to install. The installer will automatically search for the
    folder where you originally installed Jedi Outcast and install
    all of the updates. If the update does not locate Jedi Outcast
    on your system, you may need to reinstall the game from the
    original CD and then run the JKIIUpdate.exe

    This update for the game has been modified to:
    ---------------------------------------------
    * Provide EAX® 3.0 and OpenAL support. To enable these options,
    you will need to enable 3D Sound in the Sound Setup menu.
    NOTE: At the time of release of this update, EAX 3.0 is only
    supported on the Creative Labs Inc. SoundBlaster® Audigy(TM)
    and Extigy(TM) sound cards.

    NOTE: This feature is not supported on Aureal® Vortex and
    Vortex 2 sound cards. Enabling this feature with a card with
    one of these chipsets may cause the game to lock up.

    Multiplayer:
    -----------
    * Include 4 new Multiplayer Duel levels, which support BOTs.
    * The new levels are:
    duel_bespin, duel_temple, duel_hangar, and duel_training

    Single Player:
    -------------
    * Provide Force Feedback mouse support.
    * Provide limited Force Feedback support for joysticks.
    NOTE: Force Feedback joystick effect is not fully supported
    in this update.

    Corrects various gameplay issues, including:
    -------------------------------------------
    Multiplayer:
    -----------
    * Corrects an issue where players were unable to cycle to
    detonator packs and trip mines on the ?explosives? key
    unless they also had Thermal Detonators.
    * Corrects an issue that prevented launching a multiplayer
    game on AMD(TM) dual processor machines
    * Corrected an exploit to prevent players from using illegal
    models in the game.
    * Corrected an exploit that allowed players to have force
    powers outside of what the server rules allow.
    * Added a keyboard icon that appears over the player's head
    when the player is chatting or configuring force powers.
    * Backflip now requires that you double tap the jump button.
    * Lightsaber usage in multiplayer has been modified to work
    similarly to the way it works in single player levels. This
    will enable better saber battles up close with your opponent.
    * Lightsabers will do less damage at the very start and very
    end of a swing. This should prevent kills from just touching
    an opponent with the tip of your lightsaber.
    * Other players will not see the glow from a player using force
    absorb until they are attacked.
    * Force Heal and Force Drain have been adjusted to require more
    force energy to use them.
    * Corrected an issue that prevent lightsaber locking from
    occurring in duels even if it was enabled by the server.
    * Correct various Duel mode issues, including:
    * Reconfiguring force powers will not place your player at
    bottom of queue.
    * If one player leaves during a match when dueling with more
    than 1 kill limit, the next person in line will not enter
    the match with the score of the person who left the match
    * Changing skins will no longer produce a loss score on HUD

    I just installed it, but haven't the time to test drive it. Will report if no one else does first.

    Some things sound great, like the typing icon

    That screams "sitting duck, frag me", but will be good if it's seen by respectful players.

    It's my southern accent, dolt. Don't make fun of others. It hurts their feelings. Do it again, and you'll be BAND!

    I thought it was BANED.

    Anyway:

    * Corrected an issue that caused enemies not to be alerted by
    the body of a comrade in their field of vision.


    I first noticed this in the Stormies in level two. I'm glad they fixed that. And JP is right about the keyboard icon.

    the keyboard icon indicating people typing is nothing new... It's been in Q3A. And it's a nice feature, so people won't contest "but I was typing you moron!" frag complaints heheeh.

    Or to help spot lame typo killers :p

    I fail to see how having a keyboard icon above your head will stop the above complaints happening.

    well, generally, if you were typing when you got killed, you'd naturally inform your killer. Most common response is "riiiight", "that's what they all say", "excuses, excuses". It just gives you a legit/provable justification

    Especially in a fast-paced game, you can't stop to notice a person has remained static for more than 2 seconds (either from being afk/planning an attack/catatonic/typing), so it's just a good indicator. And it'll spare people from binding a key for "I WAS TYPING YOU MORON!"

    Ah-ha! Now I get it. When you complain that you were typing when you got fragged, now you can prove you weren't lying.

    Corrected an issue that would cause the third AT-ST on
    Artus_Topside to disappear that prevented Jan from landing.


    I had this a few times. It became a pain in the bum, it really got annoying...

    I just downloaded the patch tonight. I haven't experienced any bugs in the game so far, but it's still good that they released a small patch.

    This sounds good. Unfortunately now that I'm home for the summer it will be a little while before my good computer has an Internet connection. I'm really looking forward to seeing how the MP lightsaber combat works now.

    exactly! bravo!

    and prove that the killer is a llama



    Actually the way it works is: the person who dies from a chat kill and complains is the llama. Anything goes in an official match with clans, so it goes for any game. If you are talking in the game while there are still enemies about, its your own damn fault you got fragged. Live with it. Deal with it. But by all means, don't become the uber-lamer by using wallhacks and bots, like most Rocket Arena III players do.

    Look at it this way: people who kill people with an icon above their head would kill that person when he realized the person wasn't moving anyway. It's AFK, and people do it. I agree, people that are typing are taking the risk of being fragged.

    But, this is good for the noble people who will not kill others with the icon above their head, the people with a sense of "honor." Beforehand, these people may have been caught up in the heat of battle and slashed away before they realized the person wasn't moving. Now, they'll realize that the icon is there, and pull off.

    So really, the icon can only do good, not bad. It won't make heaps of changes, but it'll be good for some people who play with honor.

    One way to make it work would be to take a kill off whoever kills the person with a keyboard on their head. Instead of gaining a kill, you actually lose one.

    That would be abused.

    People would start to chat an instant before they were about to die.

    I saw on another forum that the secondary fire of the repeater and flechette guns now takes 25 ammo instead of 8. I don't know if I like that...

    Still haven't played it yet. :( Too busy watching the boys at JKII.net and trying my hardest to stop the evil that is redundancy. Be happy with what you have, jp. ;)

    You lucky bastard! I envy you in every possible way. Would you mind telling me what you thought of it (non-spoiler) when you get back and have some time? Not much, but how much you liked it and stuff.
