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.
couldn't exec jk2mpconfig.cfg
couldnt exec autoexec.cfg
Hunk_clear: reset the hunk ok
... detecting CPU, found intel pentium IV
*Send Error Report* (FU Bill)
Referring from LucasArts official site;
(Corrections when updating to 1.03)
* 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.
Many thanks to Neri for solving this little puzzle.

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