JK2 Day!

Post by Theicecreaman on Sun Jul 29, 2012 7:17 pm

Who's up for some JK2 carnage one of these days? I feel like I haven't played it in ages!

Not that I miss it in particular or anything like that, but I could go for some lightsaber action.

Not to put a damper on this, but the servers are having issues at the moment. I'm not sure if it was a bad update that went through or what, but I had to take the servers down 'cause they keep crashing.

I'm on it though. I've got a second server I built that's faster and better and I've been meaning to transfer all the JK servers over to that for some time now, I just haven't gotten around to it. As I write this I'm downloading all the server stuff so I can re-upload it to the new server. It's just gonna take a while, there's so many maps between the servers!

So yeah, gimme a day or two then you should all have a blazing fast brand spankin' new set of servers! cheers




... I hope. bounce

I was thinking Thursday or Friday for this actually? Whenever the servers are up, we'll have a new server party like true geeks.

I spent most of today working on the servers and I think they're finished. I'm going to bed, but I'm gonna launch everything and see how the load is and such tomorrow after running all night. So I'll probably be load balancing and tweaking settings and such over the next few days but assuming there's no major problems with my installation the servers should be up again.

If you guys do get on there before I do, let me know how things seem. Lag and such should be less, especially on huge maps. I think the bots may finally be able to play on maps like BigCannon now too! cheers

Awesome! Nice work! I'll check it out later in the evening!
edit:
So I spent some time there earlier today, and it worked fine. I noticed nothing out of the ordinary, but I can't attest to its speed, as I didn't try any other maps besides the yavin_temple one or whatever it's called (the default one).

They were working fine before. Don't trust the Server Tracker--it isn't updated to the new servers yet. Check for yourself.

Whupsies, sorry about that. Should be fixed now, I forgot to switch some internet related settings over to the new server from the old.

That slight oversight may have actually resulted in people not being able to connect at times, though jk2 usually figures it out anyway which is probably why you were able to connect, Ice, even though technically it shouldn't have even appeared in the list.

But anyways it's all better now Thumbs Up Hopefully there aren't any other settings I forgot to switch over.

I'll be on the server Friday probably during the day checking stuff out, so if we want to have a little shindig that'd be cool. Cool

jk2 is gonna be awesome on your brand new laptop with a legit graphics card. Pump up the resolution and anti-aliasing! cheers

Anti-aliasing isn't even an option in jk2 it's so old. Find that setting in your graphics card settings and crank up the jaggy-b-gone Very Happy

Was on the server earlier. Everything seems to be working fine. Tried bigcannon with the bots and no crashes Thumbs Up

Are the grand flaw and innercity maps on the server? Tried to load those and noting happened. I may have typed the map names wrong I'm not sure.

Everything should be exactly as it was, maps and all. So you must have typed them in wrong.

I've started noticing some instability issues with the Ubuntu OS I installed on there, so I may have to take it back to square one and reinstall some other OS. It seems like the newer Ubuntu distros have gotten quite bloated... not ideal at all for a server.

We'll see how it goes over the next couple days then I'll decide if I need to reinstall stuff.

Okay the NVIDIA options are:
1) Application-controlled
2) Enhance the application setting
and 3) Override the setting

The default is app controlled. Should I do override? I don't want to mess up games that have it built-in, though...

Override is what you want. App-controlled means that you set the setting within the game's setup stuff. jk2 doesn't have that option in its settings so you just set it in nVidia's settings instead.

Basically the only harm it will do is none, because all your games will use magical anti-aliasing whether or not they have an option for it. Thumbs Up

You can also set up profiles I'm sure, I have a couple profiles set up so I can easily switch between no anti-aliasing and anti-aliasing depending on which game I fire up.

Alsoalsoalso, guess what's back up and running!! cheers

I spent today nuking the Ubuntu version I had on there and manually installing the server edition of Ubuntu, which comes with no extra anything. It's back to basics linux. As in, this is all you see after you install it:



That little dollar sign down there is your shell prompt where you type stuff. Typing stuff does stuff. And such.
I grabbed that from the web. Looks like it's a pizza server!

From there I installed just the stuff I needed (like a gui? Very Happy ) one by one. It took a long time but it seems much more stable now that it doesn't have all the extra crap the desktop versions of Ubuntu come with these days. Time will tell. Wink If he helps test the server, anyway. To be honest I should have been running the server edition of Ubuntu all this time anyway, but it's so much work installing everything from scratch that I never bothered. And the desktop editions of Ubuntu were never that bad until the last three versions or so when they switched over to that Unity crap that mucked everything up. I'm pretty sure that's what was causing the slowdowns and crashes I was seeing yesterday. So basically, now the server can just focus on serving stuff like jk2, so that's good.

For anyone interested, here's what it looks like after all that:

I used to have green text in the server console like the Matrix, but I decided to give it a fresh look for the new server and went with the grayish white text. Clean and simple Very Happy


Like I said before, I'll be playing during the day tomorrow to test stuff out, so stop by and say hi!

Oh, and is 2x fine for the anti-aliasing? You can do the individual thing in NVIDIA too.
