Known Issues (to be fixed in next revision or possibly sooner):

  • Do not get ammo for grenades until respawning
  • I is by default bound to inventory and will interrupt chat (you can rework around this by binding inventory to a different key not used to type in chat for now).
  • Admin logins do not currently work
  • Other issues

 

Thanks for play testing for us!  Let us know if you find any other major issues. We look forward to the scrimmage match with everyone!

For some reason I keep getting an annoying error that doesn't let me start the game, it says: 

 

"Couldn't initialize refresh" when I open the Run JKGalaxies.bat file. 

 

My jkgalaxies folder is inside my Gamedata folder. 

Screenshot?  Also system information?  Steam install/cd install? Has it worked at all, and just randomly stopped working, or never worked?

Hi,

this occurs when the renderer could not be loaded for some reason or another. The renderer was renamed, so what's most likely happening is that an old configuration file with rd-vanilla in it is causing it to point at that instead of rd-galaxies.

An easy fix is to add this in the .bat file:

 

+seta cl_renderer "rd-galaxies"

You only need to run the game once and it will correct itself.

That could be. I've a lot of old files laying in my Jedi Academy folder, and the problem got fixed when I asked my brother (who's not having any problem in his computer) to share his gamedata folder with me.

If that doesn't work out or you get a new error, one other thing you could try is getting the xp patch: http://dl.dropbox.com/s/4o15a8sjp1tcr02/jkgXP_v1-2-0.zip and then grabbing the bat included in the root directory of the zip, as well as the default.cfg it refers to inside the JKG sub directory. This will start your game with all your cfg settings changed to valid default ones.
