Everything, after a little work for AMD radeon catalyst drivers users.
What does not
1Â°) single and multiplayer games crash at start (caused by AMD radeon Catalyst drivers, verified with and without)
2Â°) jediOucast.exe global menu freezes when click on "Play" (caused by AMD radeon Catalyst drivers, verified with and without)
3Â°) whole screen becomes white or very bright at game launch (AMD radeon graphic card users with catalyst or open source mesa drivers)
4Â°) low level quality sound play sometimes music too fast
What was not tested
I didn't even finished the single game.
I encounter 2 big problems and 3 less important with this game, surely most related to AMD Catalyst graphic card drivers: 1Â°) I tested on 2 computers with a AMD Radeon graphic card with catalyst drivers (12.x) , the game crash at launch or you have a message the game could not find default.cfg file. Solution: open the exe with a hex editor and replace "GL_EXTENSIONS: %s" by "GL_EXTENSIONS: %p". This workaround does not work for Nvidia userand the Steam version (error code 51). This crash doesn't produce if you use the xorg open source radeon driver. 2Â°) other bug possibly related to Catalyst driver: launch JediOutcast.exe, the global launch menu. When you clicked on launch, nothing happened, the window freezes. Workaround: launch directly the single game: jk2sp.exe or multiplayer exe: jk2mp.exe. This bug doesn't produce if you use the xorg open source radeon driver. 3Â°) When you launch the game, the rest of the screen (not the game screen) becomes very bright, white. When you change the luminosity option in game, it changes the whole desktop luminosity too. Everything return to the normal state at the game close, but sometimes it persists...Solution: open the jk2config.cfg and jk2mpconfig.cfg config files located in the "Jedi Outcast/Gamedata/base" folder and set the option "seta r_ignorehwgamma" to "1" 4Â°) Sometimes the music plays too fast. Solution: use the EAX Advanced HD audio instead of the low quality audio option. 5Â°) in multiplayer game, if you have this error message: CL_ParsePacketEntity LucasArts has detected you are using a nocd patch and disconnect you. Solution: Use the original CD or the steam version. Don't forget to update your version to 1.04 to correct some bugs with the multiplayer game.
