Hi there everyone! I am MaceMadunusus, I started modding roughly 12 years ago on a game called Star Wars: Jedi Knight Jedi Academy. I joined the Movie Battles II team in order to create many new, unique, and interactive locations as well as to update some existing levels. I am currently working on Movie Battles II's spiritual sequel Eridan Crisis.

I am sure some of us would have liked to attempt that at some point. Sadly the code base we run off of is different between MP and SP so that would be very difficult for us. I know some of us would like to add bots to the MP mode so you could play that way but making semi intelligent game AI is challenging with a small team.

I would like it if we had single player/ bot capability as well. Sadly we do not as the MP and SP code bases are different. We do mark it as Multiplayer in the mod details though.

Yes this is multiplayer. A guide to installing is here: Moviebattles.wikia.com

Once you have done all that you should be able to launch the game and join via the server browser in the play menu.

MaceMadunusus @ Movie Battles II V1.4.6 to V1.4.7 Upgrade

I believe Linux build is server-only. However, we don't check ModDB anywhere near as often anymore. Post on forums about issues please!

Run MBII using the MBII Client option in the launcher. That is the OpenJK based client (Though it does need some updating)

Heyo! Best place to get some support is here on the forums: Community.moviebattles.org

Make a thread and more of the developers will be able to see and help out. I'm not personally sure exactly what is going on if you installed and launched correctly.

There is currently no updates. We were hit pretty hard when the site went down. It has been harder to recover than anticipated.

Yep, site is down. I don't have an ETA for when it will be back.

For those having issues with the launcher, a full 1.3.1 manual download should be up here on moddb soon enough (though requires activation by moddb admins).

MaceMadunusus @ Moviebattles II V1.0.1 Patch

I would say that we aren't. We either create all of our own stuff internally (Don't steal like KOTF does). If we would like to use something not created by us, it is done with permission and credit (see readme).

Not only that, but we do not use EXE installation, so you don't have to worry about viruses at all that way.

Everything has always been free regarding movie battles as well, its been going for over 10 years now, and we have only ever had to ask for donations once totaling $180 which was used to keep the site running and development functioning all these years because webspace, source control, and official servers do cost us money. The donation button was immediately removed after we had met our goal to keep development running. You don't need to send us a single cent if you would like to play, so long as you have jedi academy of course.

Movie Battles isn't something that cropped up recently, if there were any scams or viruses, it would be well known by now. However, we have been running for 10 years without such complaints!

Hey guys, we are going to be upgrading hardware and software on the MovieBattles.com site over the next few days. You will be noticing downtime in the process.

The main site and development tools are already moved, and forums are being moved to the new hardware now, and a software update scheduled for tomorrow.

Either installed or ran MB2 incorrectly.

Make sure you are running the game through the .bat file, or by using +set fs_game "MBII" in a shortcut through steam on your computer.

DO NOT start through the mod menu.

That should work but you can also just drag and drop it straight from the zip folder into gamedata. Should save a step.

Moddb.com Download this, drop it in your gamedata folder, and use the Play_MBII.bat file to start it.

It is a multiplayer mod, so it will not have anything to do with your campaign, no need to worry about that!

There is currently a crash there. We have an a fix already for it, but are waiting on a few other crash fixes before we do a patch.

However, there is a temporary fix for the one at that location that you can get here: Dropbox.com

replace the MBAsset2.pk3 in the MBII folder with this, and you should be good.

Did you have a version of Movie Battles prior to this?

Usually problems like that are animation related to the location of the mb_baseassets.pk3. As long as it is in your MBII folder and you're launching like you said you are, it should be fine. However, prior to V1, the MB_Baseassets.pk3 was in the base folder, which means it might be overwriting the file due to its location. Check to be sure it isn't there if you have installed MB2 before.

DOTFV2 revamp was postponed along with a number of other things (Conquest, CC, etc.) because I was having a lot of personal issues and I was the one working on those tasks... It took two years, but those issues are slowly resolving and I have started work on things again. CC being the first finished. You will be seeing a release this summer.

Are you running a widescreen resolution, and did you update drivers recently? (nVidia perhaps?)

It isn't recommended to start MB2 with the mod menu as it usually causes conflicts with other mods that may be present.

I would recommend starting MB2 with the Play_MBII.bat file that is provided (a short cut to it also works). If you don't have one, simply creating a text file, adding this: start jamp.exe +set fs_game "MBII" and saving it as Play_MBII.bat and double clicking it should work fine.

If you are on steam, I believe you can just modify the target with +set fs_game "MBII" to do the same.

Permissions finally got fixed, I just updated the current release version on the top. The mod isn't dead though, there will likely be an updated release this summer.

Hey guys,

For those that don't know this is a map made by myself. I don't care if it is used, but be sure to remember to credit where credit is due! Don't forget to credit others for their maps used as well (Such as SJC, Darth Norman, P!ng)
