The most active version is 1.02 :) The two only active servers left is Ancient < ivi > (CTF), and RoS # Sun (FFA, FF, and duels) :)

The CTF server runs NT, and Sun runs KaMod :)

If you have the original disc, the just install it with that and then install a nocd such as this one: http://jk2.ouned.de/downloads/files/pat ... /jk2mp.exe

I was just talking about this game with my brothers. We also want to get back into 1.02a. I'm not sure if we have the disks anymore. Should we trying buying them online? I know they are all over the Internet.

People really still play this game???

It require you to have the game installed with the 1.04 patch ^^ You can buy JK2 on Steam for practically nothing until may the 6th :) Otherwise there is "other" methods, but I'd recommend going on about it in a legal way of course :D

Yes :) ^_^ One of the main features JK2MV (Jedi Knight 2 Multi Version) is that you can jump freely between all versions of JK2 (1.02, 1.03, and 1.04) from a single executable :) Quite neat :D

Is there an installation guide or steps? I ended up having to order a disk... so I'll be online later this week.

1) Install JK2.
2) Unless your disc is prepatched, you'd want to install the 1.04 patch, which you can also find a link to on the JK2MV download page.
3) Install JK2MV using the installer.
4) From now on you must install skins and maps into JK2MV/base, since that is the directory it uses for all clientside related stuff (You are only ever going to need the other GameData folder if you want to homehost a server; JK2MV only needs the original JK2 folder for the original assets).
5) Enjoy JK2MV :D If you only want to play 1.02 you can just set the serverlist of JK2MV to only show 1.02 servers :) You can read more about its features on the website, its main features are stuff like the Multi Version feature, Multi Master Server Support (In case the Raven master goes down you will still be able to see most servers), a minimizer, in-game HTTP pk3 download (e.g. for faster map downloads on JK2MV servers), as well as fixes for all known security bugs, dynamic glow, and so on :) I really cannot recommend this enough :D
