Oliver on Upcoming Jedi Academy MP Patch
10:27 AM | Mike Apps | Comment on this story

Fans of Aspyr's hit Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, will be happy to hear that an update is in the works. This latest update, being worked Aspyr programmer Brad Oliver, mainly fixes a number of multi-player issues. Here's a snippet from the update description :

I've finally gotten off my butt and started wrapping up the Jedi Academy patch. You can find it here. This is a BETA quality patch, and isn't yet final, but I'm fairly optimistic that it's final quality. If you try it, please let me know how it works for you in the comments. It's my hope that if there are no issues, we can get it finalized and released fairly quickly.

This patch should mainly be of interest to those of you who play online.

From the release notes - note my optimism that we'll release it some time in December :)

1.01c - xx December 2004

Multiplayer app will now load .bundle DLLs from within pk3 files, provided you zip up the .bundle package, remove the .zip extension from the filename, and add "_mac" on the end. For example, cgame.bundle would be zipped, then renamed to "cgame_mac" and placed in a .pk3 file. This will allow Mac MODs to be used in "pure" server conditions, provided that the PC or Mac server contains a pk3 with the Mac DLLs.

Fixed PC bug in multiplayer app where the client would display "Sabers only" when connecting to a server that disabled some, but not all, of the weapons.

Dynamic glow is now a bit more dynamic than before. This may exact a bit more of a performance hit, so it can be disabled via the "More Video" options in the UI.

Fixed potential PC bug when setting force power settings in the UI in the MP app.

Workaround for "MAX_PATCH_PLANES" error that would occur when loading some very large 3rd party multiplayer maps.

About box now uses the OSX default version on 10.3.0 and higher.
