Warzone installer and updater is now available for anyone who wishes to have a look at the alpha versions of the game.


* Requires an installed copy of the Jedi Academy game.

* Requires a 2GB video card at least and a fairly recent CPU.

* If you have issues running the game on AMD graphics, use the AMD FIX.bat file once.

* The installer/updater/launcher will update all files each time it is run to the newest. It will also fix the game files.

* Always put the installer in it's own folder. DO NOT USE THE INSTALLER IN A FOLDER WITH ANY OTHER FILES OR FOLDERS INSIDE (other then the other files in this archive)!

* If you want to make content for warzone, copy the gamedata folder to another place and work on that copy (there are bat files in GameData to run the game), when the updater updates on the downloaded copy, it will reset any files to defaults.

Updated on 2018/12/20 to fix issues with UAC and some other improvements.


LAUNCHER INSTRUCTIONS AND TROUBLE SHOOTING:

1. Extract the Warzone folder inside the archive to some place on your hard drive (using WinRAR or 7zip).
2. Go to that folder and run the WarzoneLauncher.exe file.
3. It should automatically download all the warzone files.
4. Once the files are downloaded, it might ask you to show it where your jedi academy 'gamedata' folder is, if it does, then select that folder in the dialog.


If for some reason the game crashes at start, there are 3 possibilities.

1. Make sure inside Warzone\GameData\ you see a 'base' directory. If not, copy your 'base' directory from your Jedi Academy game folder.
2. Most things can be fixed by simply restarting the launcher. It will continue any updates and fix any broken files.
3. Make sure you have the latest launcher, above. It has been updated multiple times the last few days.


If you have any problems, you can usually catch us on our discord by clicking the link in the new launcher, or the link below.


If in doubt, rerun the launcher.

SOME USEFUL CVARS (the ones I can think of off the top of my head - will add more later):

To keep # of NPCs always spawned (these are only temporary methods and will be replaced in the future with an event system):
npc_imperials #
npc_rebels #
npc_wildlife #
npc_civilians # (currently only works somewhat correctly in weylax map)

also, make sure npc_pathing is set to 0 (it should be by default).


WE ALWAYS NEED DEVELOPERS:
We are always in need of more people to work on Star Wars: Warzone. If you are a mapper or modeller, a coder or a sound engineer, or anything else, and think you can help out, send me a message!

How does one connect to a server?

There currently are no servers that I am aware of, we are still early in development, most of the work done has been on the engine and the renderer and sound systems.

You can test local games through the menu, or start your own server by using the "START WARZONE SERVER.bat" file in the gameData folder though.

The updater seems to have gotten stuck at "Downloading 1 update" but never finishes. I've closed, and re-opened the updater a dozen times, and it's still not downloading. Any ideas why?

There is a new version of the launcher now that shows more/better information when downloading. Extract it over the old copy.

There are some large files, one of which changed yesterday (it took me about an hour yesterday to download that updated file - i'm in australia with horrible internet). It is almost certainly still downloading. Just let it finish.

I need to update the launcher to give more information, but I have so much other stuff to do that its low priority.

Thank you! The new updater tells me how big that update is. It's '1 GB'... I'm in the UK, my internet is awful, about 0.2mbps download speed. Oh well. Guess I'll leave it on overnight! This mod better be worth the hastle ;)

I hope so :)

It's still very early in development, but most of the graphics, sound, grass systems etc, and large map support is done.
