Default jk2mp.exe/multiplayer error

Considering the fact that a lot of people have this problem, i thought its time to clear the air.

Problem occours when trying to run multiplayer (jk2mp.exe), while singleplayer works fine.

The error:
...
...
...
execing mpdefault.cfg
couldn't exec jk2mpconfig.cfg
couldnt exec autoexec.cfg
Hunk_clear: reset the hunk ok
... detecting CPU, found intel pentium IV

*Crash*
*Send Error Report* (FU Bill)


Referring from LucasArts official site;
(Corrections when updating to 1.03)


Corrects:
-------------------------------------------
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.
...
...
...


Actually, the second error here seem to occour on all dual-cpu's (HT) running Windows XP.

From here on there are two (2) options.

i. Download and apply the official 1.03 or 1.04 patch.
(Anyone with his mind in the right place won't do this )

ii. Enter your installation folder, right click JediOutcast.exe (or jk2mp.exe) and go properties. Now click the tab called Compatibility, and mark the box 'Run this program in compatibility mode for'. Choose Windows ME/98 and apply.
Problem solved.
Many thanks to Neri for solving this little puzzle.

Scripting isn't skills, so calling yourself the 'Best Scripter in JK2' is like..... stupid.

Don't script.

i belive i tried running it in compatibility mode for me \98 ill try it again tho to be sure. then ill reort it to tech support if it works.

i dont think its going to work

and being the best scripter is just my hobby. im actually one of the best 0 regen players period and in light...who needs scripts. i only use my scripts when i play dark in 75-125 regen. and im only average there. so...scripts aint godly. but they sure are fun

If i could write a script with "if statements" in it i would beat everyone by pushing one button one time.
Til then settle for having the best scripts in jk2

It should work. Actually I've never heard of it NOT working...

Just make sure you run the program you've changed compatibility mode for.

Meaning that if you change the compatibility mode for JediOutcast.exe, you need to run JediOutcast.exe in order to make multiplayer work.

I believe LucasArts tech support knows about this...

id like to give out a big thank you to snow for figuring out this problem. and whoever helped him out ...lol THANKYOU!!!

it works!

just go into you starwars folder. and in the folder GAMEDATA there is a icon named jk2mp.exe right click on this and select properties. then run in compatability mode for windows me/98 and wala! it works!

and to think ive spent the last week and a half playing email tag with the jk2 tech support and they couldnt figure this out.

If i could write a script with "if statements" in it i would beat everyone by pushing one button one time.
