JK2 Dedicated Server

Okay, first of all, I don't lke to double post, but it dos'nt look like I'm going to get a reply in the Linux Games forum....


Hi there,
I'm setting up my Linux box to be the main server for my LAN. I've got things like web server, ftp server etc.. But I play quite alot of LAN games over my network, and decided to add some dedicated game servers to my linux box.

I downloaded the Jedi Knight 2 Linux Dedicated Server, and followed installation instructions. The only thing I had trouble with was getting the pk3 files... I tried copying them from the JK2 disk, but it could'nt read the disk??? I was logged into root and I could access other cd's. As a workaround I FTP'ec the pk3 files from my Windows XP Laptop, incuding the pk3's from the latest patch.

However, when I run the program as root, or as any user, actually, I get the following:

code:root@thepenguin:/usr/local/games/jk2# ./jk2ded +exec server.cfg
JK2MP v1.04a linux-i386 May 11 2003
Initialising zone memory .....
----- FS_Startup -----
Current Search Path:

0 files in pk3 files

Running in restricted demo mode.

----- FS_Startup -----
Current Search Path:

0 files in pk3 files
Sys_Error: Could'nt load mpdefault.cfg

If it's any help I'm running Slackware 9.1. Plus, there's 'something' in those pk3 files, they're roughly the same size as they are on my windows computer, so I doubt there's been a transfer error of some sort, and I've actually transferred the files multiple times to be sure it was'nt a transfer error.

Appreciate some help, thanks

- Tom

Wow. You wait less than 24 hours and then decide that no one will help you. What about all those people on the other side of the world who may not have seen your post yet?

The best way to bump your post (and the acceptable way) is to wait 24 hours and then reply with information of other things you have tried. I refer you to the Rules you agreed to when you signed up.

To anyone else: please do not respond to this post. The original post is here, please post answers there.

Okay, sorry. Like I said, I do not like to double post. I wanted to get this resolved as soon as possible, as I will not be available to check the forum tonight.

I'll wait the 24 hours next time, but I was unable to this time. Apolagies,

- Tom
