Is there anyone else here who has Jedi Knight 2? If so, do you get problems in playing online multiplayer, such as being disconnected? I have a friend who has these problems. He uses Xtra as his ISP. He says that after about three minutes of playing, it gets disconnected from the game server, reconnects about five minutes later, goes fine for a minute, then gets disconnected altogether. Like me, he has a shortcut to "ping www.google.co.nz -t" ready on the desktop, in case his net connection "goes dead" (not disconnected, but doesn't send or receive any traffic for a while).

BTW, are there any Jedi-believers here?

Hmmm can't really say that I've seen many Jedi Knight players on this forum, but you never know, there might be some closet ones.

Has your friend tried leaving Outlook Express (or whatever his email client is) running to check the emails every minute in order to keep the line "open"?

Try what susan said to keep the connection alive

If you want to stop being disconnected, try opening the properties box for the internet connection. I hope you know where to find that.
Now that you have it open, go to the Options tab.
You will see a Redialing Options, grouping. The second to last entry will be {b]idle time before hanging up:[/b]. From the dropdown box select never.
All should work OK now. Mine never disconnects:D

It's nothing to do with disconnecting from the internet after XX minutes of idle time. It must be a combination of Xtra, his modem, and his phoneline. He doesn't have any additional phone services from Telecom, just a standard phoneline. However, he now has Jetstream (did that deal where you save $99 if you sign up before Dec 16), and I have not yet asked him if JK2 still plays up... if it does, I'd be very surprised.

Lo - you might remember that the Australian government made Jedi an officially recognised belief, due to the number of people who said it was their religion in the 2001 Australian Census.

The same would have been in effect here, had the numbers sufficed.
I am a Jedi:x:D:p - or so my census says:D

If only I'd put down "Jedi" instead of plain old boring "Catholic"... but then, I hadn't made my mind up back then.

i've got jedi knight 2 and had the same problems, the solution is to install the jkv2 patch(Jedi Knight Version 2 patch) i think u can still get it from the nz web gaming sites but that was like 5months ago, but it would still be on the net. Without this patch whenever u join the server u are disconnected after a while, then u try to reconnect it doesn't work.

cheers,

A number of us were jedi in the Census. It was NZ doing that, that got the UK people moving.
