    ModWooty

    There's a github with updated source code: https://github.com/AlexCSilva/ModWooty
  2. So I found this game called Vertex and it looks a lot like JK2 and JKA, so I thought I'd share. It's still in development, but you can try it out for free. EDIT: So plenty of people in the community already know about this game, as I should have known, but hopefully this post will reach some of the people who didn't know about it. https://playvertex.com/
  3. This is very cool! I have some similar documentation in my old hard drive, I should check and see if there's anything I can contribute.
  4. Hey, for anyone interested, a guy named George is currently hosting a Modwooty server, join us on Discord if you'd like to play: https://discord.gg/HX3Gb4
  5. Smoo was dabbling in the source code, he'll probably be interested in this revival ? Thanks for setting up the server, it brings back memories!
  6. I believe that's a local IP address, so it doesn't work for people outside your local network. Check your external IP on www.whatismyip.com
  7. I saw your comment on Youtube! I can't see the server, sadly, neither in JKA nor in the JKHub Master List.
  8. Sorry for going off-topic, but does it really make a difference, in this day and age? I mean, it's seems perfectly wise not to post your email in public forums, but if I go check my spam folder, I get like 5 spam emails per day, and it's rare for one to get past Google's filter. Aren't all our email addresses already on every single list of addresses to spam?
  9. Update! I've finally uploaded the mod files. Thanks to everyone for your kind feedback I want to remind you all that the source code is included, if anyone is crazy enough to check it out! Unfortunately, I edited the submission and it seems JKHub requires it to be re-approved every time you edit it, so you might not be able to see it until they do. Hopefully it will be quick, though! I'll avoid editing in the future.

    ModWooty

    109 downloads

    The author of this mod is a man named Bubba (by himself, as far as I know). It ran for several years on a server called Jawascript, almost always in Power Duel, on a particular map. The server has since vanished, along with the mod's website and the author himself. If anyone can contact him, please let me know, as I'm very curious about this mod's history! Anyway, at some point I downloaded the mod's files from the website, so I decided not to let them become publicly unavailable (after waiting the 30 days required by JKHub). Mod Description I would describe ModWooty as a fighting game fever dream. The combat is radically different from normal JKA. You'll be completely perplexed at first: strange messages appear, your character will do weird animations and sounds, attacks don't do what you expect and your lightsaber won't stop you from getting insta-killed by someone using only their fists. Then you'll open the console and actually use the help commands to get an idea of what's going on. Your username is like a permanent account. There are stats like money, experience, karma, dexterity and endurance, which affect your speed, size, hp, weapons, force powers, etc. You bind hadoken and crane and debugthrow and start using them, along with the JK2-style kick. You discover that using hadoken mid-air restores your Force, so you can recover from falling into the pit. You discover that LEFT+DOWN+CROUCH+ATTACK does a hand-stand attack that knocks down your opponents. Then you start team-killing your allies and innoncent jawas because you want to bring down your karma so you can use some force power or whatever. Well, at least that's what MY experience was like, more or less. ModWooty is a very deep and very fun fighting game and the most fun thing about it is discovering all of its secrets. But it's also unforgiving: new players get utterly destroyed. And spectators can possess you, or buy guns for your opponent. Probably worst of all, you can actually BUY sub-admin powers with gold (not real money, of course) and then do things like mute other players. Like I said, it's lots of fun and allows you to improve through practice and by observing better players, all while discovering more mechanics. I still don't know what the red and blue bars (originally used for the jetpack and the cloak) mean in ModWooty. The original server also had two bots that talked to you: McWooty (Admin) and Bride of Ms. Wooty. They are dearly missed! Note on the files: not all the files have the same version number, so there might be small differences between them. I might not have downloaded all the files at the same time, so that may be the cause. It shouldn't cause any problems, just be aware of that if you're actually crazy enough to dive into the source code. Oh yeah, that's right! The source code is available! Time to turn and burn!
  12. I sent you the files by PM I'm looking forward to it!
  13. In two weeks, you'll have it! Well, actually, I can send it to you sooner, I just can't upload it to JKHub yet. Will you really host a server?
  14. Hey, everyone! So some of you may know about or played Modwooty. There was one server that ran it for many years, but sadly it's now gone. Worse than that, the mod's website berealistic.com is gone, too. Thankfully, I anticipated this and downloaded and kept some of the mod files. I have the files for hosting a server, the source files, the optional client files (hadouken sound effects!) and what appears to be a custom map. I emailed Bubba (the author) yesterday, but I doubt bubba@rubbernub.com is still used, so I'll probably have to wait 30 days without a reply, as per JKHub rules. In the meantime, I was wondering if anyone had other ways of contacting the man or if anyone has the mod's files saved somewhere, as well. It would be interesting to interview him, and so on, if we can somehow find him. And there might be different versions of the mod out there, so if someone has something, we should compare it to try and make sure we're upload the latest version of Modwooty. Anyway, Modwooty nostalgia thread!
  15. Man, your name is familiar
  16. It sounds like Movie Battles is the mod you want to play, you should check it out.
  17. Man, I recognize the name Tusken King! Nope I lost all my stuff because the server disappeared.
  18. From the Makermod welcome text: That kind of sums it up. You should just find a makermod server and try it out.
  19. Makermod and Lugormod were the ones I played almost exclusively. Another mod I find very unique is modwooty. There's pretty much no information about it online, but it's a Power Duel mod with a lot of stats and special moves and so on. One interesting aspect is that you can but sub-admin once you've won enough gold, which allows you abuse other players if you want to.
  20. http://jkgalaxies.com/ I never did get to try it. I wanted to install it one time, but the updater thing failed. Was it any good?
  21. https://www.humblebundle.com/ I just checked and about 10 servers show up on the game's server browser, which is odd. That didn't stop our beloved classic from being included in Humble Bundle, though! Hopefully the Master server will be revived really quickly, otherwise the potential new players won't be browsing a many of servers.
  22. KotF installs itself on a folder separate from your normal JKA folder. Like The_CrY said, it doesn't do anything that the base game doesn't do with cheats enabled. I can understand that people who'd never played with cheats enabled could find it fun, but at the same time, cheat servers were around when I started playing in 2003. Heck, godmod (now known as Makermod) was already around back then. On the other hand, this mod is all about wanking over the film series and Movie Battles may not have been a thing at the time.
  23. Oh, so he actually tried to sell KotF? That explains the DVD-case image on the website. It explains the entire project, in fact! It was a fraud all along, the comments were fake and his claims were exaggerated. Man, that's a relief. It was a pretty elaborate hoax, though! Not giving proper credit can be really serious, dude. Besides, what is there to enjoy? There's next to no gameplay in there, it's an awful mess! Why do you describe him as inventive?
  24. Really? It's weird because as I said, the credits list is huge. I did get the feeling that this was some elaborate virus or hoax, but it is definitely a sort of mod. I just tried the thing and it couldn't have been any more disappointing. For some reason, it kept undoing some of my changes to the controls, it was really really annoying. After running the SP executable directly and trying to get the mod to work by navigating some awful glitchy menus for a while I finally read online that you're supposed to run the executable for the little menu and that let's you play the missions properly. Most of them weren't even available, they looked achingly short and all the characters vomited ripped audio from the films. In case I haven't gotten my point across, the whole thing is rubbish. I've removed it and deleted the torrents and I hope I don't ever look at it again. I'm still in shock, though, this mod really had be fooled for a while there. I thought I'd discovered some cool campaign that I'd somehow missed and everyone knew about it. From the way the guy writes I'm convinced that this took a lot of work to do and that plus the large amount of content on the website really made me believe that this was a grand project. I was expecting it to be glitchy and poor quality, but I wasn't expecting it to be unplayable, much less lacking in content. There may be something buried in that mess that's worth trying out, if my controls didn't keeping getting screwed up. Man, the way it's presented really got to me, what a disappointment. It's sad to see something that comes across as a labour of love, with a fair number of long-time fans, whose author decided to quit because it was consuming too much time from him and then you go to try it an wham! Stone in the face! And that's what I'm having trouble coping with. Unless those comments from fans are fake and the author is a big fat liar, how the hell did so much effort amount to this garbage? There's a video of the man showing the project off at a convention for god's sake! Sorry for writing so much but as I said, this touched me. It's funny, I know. Anyway, I'd like to hear some more of the story/your opinions on this mod.
