(2007-08-28)

General (client + server):
  • [NEW] The height at which Wall Grab works now depends on the Jump Level
  • [NEW] Saber fizz effect under the rain (like in SP). This effect works by default in maps using OUTSIDE brushes (like A2). In maps using INSIDE brushes (like the SP Yavin2 map), the effect will only start to work after someone walked into an INSIDE brush (and it will keep working until the map is restarted)
  • [IMP] Enhanced Hologram feature: can't move, smaller, non-solid, with a projector (Client 0.3.1 required)
Client:
  • [FIX] The points cost of Saber Offense and Saber Defense was sometimes incorrectly reset to 0, creating an error with the unused XP calculation and possibly showing that new powers were available when they weren't really (Template Locking).
  • [FIX] The UI would show the account information of another player if you were following him when the internal client number was updated. Now your real client number is always properly set.
  • [FIX] The Join button in the Profile window didn't always work.

0.3.0
(2007-08-25)

Normal Commands:
  • /rpclientconfig : enable/disable ledge grab, saber toggle anim and talk anim
  • /nodraw (cheat command): make yourself disappear completely
  • /rpvalidatepowers: validate a selection of new Force powers - you don't need to use this command if you have the RPMod Client, it's called by the User Interface
  • /rpignore and /rpunignore, to ignore all chat text from one or all players
Admin Commands:
  • /rpsound : play global sounds and global looping sounds
  • /rpeffect : play or stop a global effect (currently alert and alarm effects)
Server (Rcon) Commands:
  • /rpupdateaccounts : force an update of all Accounts from database
  • /rpparsemodelscales : reparse the modelscale.dat file without restarting the map/server
  • /rpreloadsecuritydoors : if applicable, reparse the securitydoors.dat file and reload the Security Doors without restarting the map/server
  • /rpdumpNPCs : create a server cfg file containing commands to spawn all NPCs currently present in the map
  • /rpparsefpc : reparse the forcecost.dat (Force Power Cost) file
General (client + server):
  • [NEW] Bounding Boxes are now adjusted depending on the model scale, emote played, etc.
  • [NEW] New version numbering with 3 digits: M.m.r with M = Major version, m = minor version, r = revision. Each minor version will most likely see several updates, increasing the revision number every time. For example, 0.3.1 (the major version will only become 1 when the mod will be released publicly, considered stable and complete enough).
  • [NEW] Now use all 3 backflip animations pseudo-randomly, as seen in the SP game
  • [NEW] Chat ranges! fully customizable on the Client side with Cvar rpc_chatRange_*
  • [NEW] Brought back the JK2 rolling behavior (easier), togglable with server Cvar rp_JK2roll - not really sure it works flawlessly concerning animations
  • [NEW] Template Locking. Basically, once you learned a power, you can't "forget" it. But you can lower the level of already acquired powers.
  • [NEW] Play a "door locked" sound when trying to open a Security Door you don't have access to.
  • [IMP] New way of scaling the player speed depending on his modelScale, mainly to solve problems with really small models
  • [FIX] Fixed loads of ModelScale bugs in both the client and server, regarding Ghoul2 Traces mainly. This solves for example the crosshair not properly targetting the head of a big guy, laser bolts going through heads, impact marks being drawn anywhere but at the impact location, etc.
  • [FIX] Support for modelScale in the Sit and Sleep emotes (so you don't disappear in the ground) and Ledge Grab (so you actually grab the ledge instead of floating in the air)
  • [FIX] Fixed an animation bug that stuck the Melee Punch anim a few seconds, sometimes
Server:
  • [NEW] Chat protection: you won't get hurt if someone attacks you while you have your chat bubble up
  • [NEW] Trip mines and Det packs max number in the map is now configurable by Cvars rp_maxTripMines and rp_maxDetPacks, default to 20 each.
  • [NEW] Support for Items and Weapons in both Accounts and Class Levels
  • [IMP] Idle anim will occur less often.
  • [IMP] Redid the Emote FX system completely to be independant - this now provides a generic and better way of playing bolted effects on the Client, like when using Force Heal, Rage or leveling up.
  • [IMP] Now force clients without the RPMod Client to have hands at side in Melee, even if prediction on their side will do animations glitches
  • [IMP] Teleporting near another player now puts you exactly in front of him (you can be sure not to telefrag him.. but not other players around him, muahahah)
  • [IMP] Reworked the Account Manager module loading code to be more portable and cleaner (now it even works on Mac OS X. Really. Even if it's not released :p)
  • [IMP] Added a '/rpspawnpoint reallyall' syntax to .. really remove all spawnpoints (to be used if you're sure nobody will spawn before you add new spawnpoints, or in server scripts - anyone spawning when there are no spawnpoints will make the server quit, so handle with care)
  • [IMP] All Force powers using an animation (Heal, Protect, Absorb, etc.) will now need to play it to enable the power for levels 1/2/3. Levels 4/5 will play the animation if possible (not in a saber move..) or just enable the power if not. Heal levels 4/5 won't play any animation at all, just the blue FX.
  • [IMP] To counter Force Push and Pull with level 1/2/3, you need to face the attacker
  • [IMP] Reworked the Account Manager module internally to enhance its performance
  • [FIX] Remove and add Security Doors dynamically when the rp_securityDoors Cvar is changed
  • [FIX] Banned IP file (banip.txt) completely redone, the OJP implementation was buggy, not very good and sometimes crashed the server when there were too many IPs. Now the g_banips Cvar is not used at all.
  • [FIX] Interrupting (by using Force Hold or whatever) an emote that uses a vertical offset (like Sit and Sleep) won't stuck the 'victim' in the ground anymore
  • [FIX] Account usernames are now case-insensitive, because the database is case-insensitive too. Previously this caused some weird side-effects when using an username that existed in the database but not with the same case.
  • [FIX] Force Hold can now be countered by Force Push, like Grip was
  • [FIX] Thrown sabers now also have their damage scaled
  • [FIX] Spectator view spawned on Knight-level spawnpoints when no dedicated spectator spawnpoint exists in the map.
  • [FIX] Server NPC Spawn command (with coordinates) didn't work at all
Client:
  • [NEW] Mac Version! Universal Binary, the latest patch from Aspyr is needed
  • [NEW] New water wade effect, not static anymore, animated, fading and all. Should be more realistic (see it in game to understand)
  • [NEW] Force Sense FX around the screen, like in SP (togglable with Cvar rpc_senseFX, default enabled)
  • [NEW] Support for Global Looping Sounds (used by the /rpsound and /rpeffect commands)
  • [NEW] Now play a visual effect when leveling up!
  • [NEW] Client support for rpAdm* commands (admin keys), faster and isn't affected by server flood protection
  • [NEW] KOTOR-like informations in the top-left corner, such as XP gains, level up, new powers available, new version of RPMod available.
  • [NEW] Customizable saber glow size with Cvar rpc_saberGlowMultiplier. A value of 2 will give a nice effect if you have dynamic glow disabled. The default is 1 (BaseJKA-style). Floating point values are allowed.
  • [IMP] Enable/disable duel glow FX, with Cvar rpc_duelFX (default disabled)
  • [IMP] Better compatibility with modded HUD that don't have placeholders for Desann and Tavion stances (will use the Red and Blue ones instead)
  • [IMP] In water, the screen tint is less agressive for the eyes and hopefully more realistic
  • [IMP] Enabled all Taunt sounds (specifically, those from the Duel game type)
  • [IMP] Completely redid the Looping Bolted Effects system (that I rushed the day of the version 0.2 released…) to be bandwidth-friendly and more extensible. This breaks compatibility with version 0.2 Clients.
  • [IMP] Player and NPC 'simple' shadow is scaled depending on modelScale too
  • [IMP] Force Absorb and Protect levels 1/2 now use the 'thin layer' effect (like all Absorb levels previously used), and levels 3+ use the big moving shell effect (as seen in all Protect levels before). This is closer from the SP game and more logical.
  • [FIX] Desann and Tavion stances are now drawn in the HUD (forgot to include the hud file in version 0.2)
  • [FIX] Chatbox shouldn't draw text off-screen anymore
  • [FIX] Fixed the famous "disco lights" bug after using a gun, when the server had been running for a while
  • [FIX] Redid the NPC fading code to avoid freshly spawned NPCs disappearing instantly because they took the slot of a previous one
  • [FIX] Properly clean Ghoul2 instances that failed to load when you don't have a player skin
  • [FIX] NPCs for which you don't have the 3D model won't crash the client anymore, but will use Kyle's model instead
  • [FIX] Fixed client prediction errors when standing on someone whose model is scaled
  • [FIX] Force Lightning levels 3 and above will make lightning come from BOTH hands, not only the left one
  • [FIX] Fixed the 'Save Template' button not really working in the Force Selection UI
  • [FIX] Play the saber off sound at the end of a spar-duel when the sabers turn off
  • [FIX] Logging in and out when the UI is displayed will properly update its status, i.e. if you login/logout when the Force Selection UI is displayed, the powers will be loaded and removed dynamically, preventing some nasty side-effects when you finally click Apply and Join.
  • [FIX] Fixed a LOT of text drawing bugs in BaseJKA (alpha support and text width calculation issues, mainly). This also solves problem with the chatbox text being drawn off-screen, sometimes
