    Installing MovieBattles II

    This is an in depth guide to installing Movie Battles II. This guide explains, in depth, how to install Movie Battles II on a Windows operating system, Mac operating system, and the Steam version of Jedi Academy.

    What you'll need:
    You must have a physical copy of Jedi Academy installed, unless your game is already patched to 1.01. If you have not yet updated to the 1.01 patch (for Windows users), you can download it from here. MAC users, you must download the 1.01e patch, which can be downloaded from here.

    You must also have the Movie Battles II mod downloaded to your computer.
    You can download the full installation from the following location:
    MovieBattles.com (official)

    Maps and Add-ons:
    Community Map Pack
    Movie Game Map Pack v1
    Movie Game Map Pack v2
    Vehicle Map Pack
    CMP Remake RC Update

    Useful Utilities
    Deathspike's Unofficial Launcher
    MBII Mac Launcher
    MB2Mini by 3lv3n

    Unistalling previous versions
    If you have a previous version of MBII installed, it is important that you delete the MBII folder in the GameData folder before installing. Alternatively, you can rename the old MBII folder to MBIIOld, install the new version, and then retrieve your settings and custom replacements/maps from the MBIIOld folder.

    Installing the game on Windows
    1. Open up the .zip file you downloaded labeled MBII_V0.1_Full.
    2. Navigate to your GameData folder; this step will be different depending on your operating system. If you installed Jedi Academy to a different location, just go to where you installed it, and skip to the next set of directions.

      On 32-bit operating systems:
      C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy\GameData

      On 64-bit operating systems:
      C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy\GameData
    3. Select all of the files in the MBII_V0.1_Full.zip file, and drag them into GameData. You will be prompted to replace or merge your base folders; press OK as this will only copy the MB_Baseassets.pk3 file from the base folder located in the .zip.
    4. If you downloaded any other packages (Community Map Pack or otherwise), do the same, but extract them to MBII instead of GameData.
    5. To run the game, double click on Play_MBII.bat.
      Note: Windows Vista and 7 users, you will need to run jamp.exe as Administrator. Right click on jamp, select properties, go to the compatibilities tab and check Run as Administrator.


    Installing on Mac OS X
    1. Open the Movie Battles II .zip folder you downloaded.
    2. Navigate to your Jedi Academy installation:
      Open up a new finder window, on the side navigation menu select applications on Applications, and navigate down to Jedi Academy (default install location).
    3. Copy the files from the version 0 .zip file into Jedi Academy.
    4. To run the game, double click on Jedi Academy MP:
      When the game is open, press Setup, Mods, choose MBII, and Load Mod. This will open up the mod.

      OR

    5. You can download this application, made by redsaurus, to automatically launch to MBII without the need to load the mod through base!


    Installing on the Steam version of Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy
    1. Same as the normal PC version, but you'll need to navigate to C:/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/Jedi Academy/GameData (yes, it's the same as the CD version, just in your Steam folder)
    2. Extract the mod to GameData
    3. To run it, right click on Jedi Academy in your game library, and select "Set Launch Options" in the General tab
    4. Add +set fs_game "MBII" to it, and it will run MBII whenever you start Jedi Academy.
      Note: If you play other mods or base, you will need to remove +set fs_game "MBII" whenever you want to play that mod, then add +set fs_game "MBII" whenever you want to play MBII.


    For incremental updates
    If a patch is released, you will be required to download it, and extract it to MBII, copying over older files. Unless specified otherwise, this will be the same for every update.

    Tips for first time MBII players:
    For first time users, here are some tips for you to better enjoy your first MBII experience:
    To open up console, hold shift and press the tilde (`) key next to 1. Type in /rate 25000 to stabilze your ping while playing.

    For more information on game optimization, please refer to this thread.

    Before you start playing, open up Controls, and make sure you have everything, especially the MovieBattles specific commands, bound. What you should bind:
    * Weapons > Reload
    * MovieBattles > Class Special 1 and 2
    * MovieBattles > Weapon Mode
    * MovieBattles > Class Configuration

    Notes:
    * If you're running the Mac version of the game, make sure you disable EAX in the sound options.

    I hope this helps newer members that may have run into problems installing the mod, and if there are any questions, feel free to ask in this thread and I'll answer them the best I can.

    I've added Steam instructions for newer users. Please read the note under the final bullet if you're one of those multimod players. Thanks to Spongeroberto for providing screenshots and instructions.

    There used to be a way to specify command line options on mac by holding shift(?) while clicking on the dock item.. I might be wrong though. Also, what happens if you simply write the command into a text file and chmod +x it?

    I'm not a mac expert but there has to be some way of making launching MBII more convenient.

    Yeah, neither am I. I know there was a way to add a launch commands, but I don't know if it works in newer versions of the OS.

    Nice guide, but you really need to add this information into your guide, if not, new-players to the MOD are gonna get confused on what to download.

    So the person who downloads V0 Full-Pack from Moddb.com, they really need to get V0.0.1 hotfix-patch from MBII Website: (Downloads/Application Section) or download V0.0.2 Full-Pack *this means that you no longer need the V0.0.1 hotfix-patch*.

    Also don't forget to add a download link to the newest CMP on this part of *Other optional downloads*.

    Yeah, I'm working on a way to word incremental updates properly right now. It's a little trickier than it seems, and will need constant updating.

    @Steam install:

    If people insist on being able to create shortcuts for multiple mods, they can use the following steps:
    1) switch the names of jamp.exe and jasp.exe
    2) create a shortcut to jasp.exe (the old jamp.exe)
    3) set the "+set fs_game xyz" parameter
    4) ????
    5) profit!

    I myself don't care about other mods so I just stick with the original instructions ;)

    Redsaurus is working on a way to quick launch MBII for the Mac. So far it seems to be working fine, with a few idiosyncrasies.

    A link to this post should be on the download page. I hope these instructions are also provided with the readme.

    They weren't until I updated it. :P These instructions should be with the next release.
