                   This version will hve most of the things
               that multiplayer has to offer in it. I am sure
               that I will cover everything but setting up
               your own server, since I still do not know how to
               do this.

           -^--- Introduction ---^-
    In this FAQ, I will teach you some things like strategies,
    rules, and other things about multiplayer. You will learn
    how to use the force wisely, all of the pick-ups and
    power-ups, and strategies for every mode including Free
    For All, Holocron, Capture the Flag, Capture the Ysalimari,
    Jedi Master, and Duel! May the force be with you!!!
           -^--- Getting into Multiplayer ---^-
    Alright. First of all, how do we even get to multiplayer?
    You have three options. The first thing you can do is play
    through LAN, Local Area Network. If you live in a small town
    and want to play on LAN though, dont expect to find anybody
    to play. Your second option is through Internet servers.
    In this FAQ I will not tell how to start your own servers.
    There are many many internet servers to choose from.
    Personally, my favorite server is a Duel Server called
    NewSchool. Your third option, my favorite option, is playing
    through Microsoft's Zone Network. You can get there through
    www.zone.com and it is absolutly free!
    So, we know how to find somewhere to play. Lets work on
    your character customization! Open up the splash screen on
    Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast where it gives you the choice
    of single player and multiplayer. Choose multiplayer. Now,
    go into setup. The first menu you should see is the Player
    menu. This is where we want to be :). The first thing in the
    menu is your name.
    Alright, the name of your character might seem like
    something simple to you, but I could probably write another
    FAQ on it LOL. It is time for the biggest decision of your
    Star Wars: Jedi Outcast life. You must choose your force
    side! What will it be? The Dark side or the Light side?
    Personally, I chose not to be evil. Your name needs to
    associate with your side. Dont be a Dark sider with a name
    like "MASTER JEDI". Jedis are for the Light side! Alright,
    you chose your name. Lets add some color to it! Erase your
    name if you have already typed it in. Now, for your name
    type in ^ and any number (e.g. ^3). Now retype your name,
    Time to pick your saber color now! Your saber needs to
    associate with your side. Heres the saber side list!
        Green = Light Side
        Blue = Light Side
        Purple = Light Side
        Orange = Both Sides
        Yellow = Both Sides
        Red = Dark Side
    Pick one that corresponds with your side. Thats it for the
    lightsaber part.
    Now you need to pick your skin. Please do not go onto the
    internet and download skins unless you want other people
    wasting their time having to download them so they can see
    you. May the defaults be with you :)
           -^--- Force Powers ---^-
    The half RPG part of Star Wars Jedi Outcast is the force
    part. With points, you can customize your force powers. Your
    points are earned by killing other players, what else? This
    is a list of every force power and its force side! **To
    change your force side, while in game press Esc, then go
    into the player menu and then into Configure Force Powers.
    There you can change your force side** NOTE : Grey force
    side means that every force user can use the ability.
        --  Dark Rage
             Force Side : Dark
             What it Does : Dark Rage makes you move quicker
                            and attack faster. Although, it
                            depletes your health as it is in
                            affect. Once your health is near
                            death, you will recharge, but move
                            very slowly.

        --  Force Protect

             What it Does : This transforms damage into force
                            energy, which is very helpful when
                            fighting good lightsaberists!
        --  Force Absorb
             Force Side : Light
             What it Does : This transforms force damage into
                            force energy, which is very helpful
                            when fighting the dark side of the

              Force Side : Light(1)/Dark(2)

                             powers will heal your teammates

    This is the list of pickups you can get in multiplayer
         --  Ysalamari
              Description : When carried by a player, the force
                            cannot hit the player. Although,
                            the player cannot use the force.
         --  Shield
              Description : The most awesome item in the world.
                            This is a shield put on the ground
                            that blocks enemy movement and

                            your health, you can save this
                            until you really need it and then
           -^--- Free For All ---^-
    Free For All mode is where you get to have a lot of people
    fighting it out with everything they got. Every little shred
    of skill is used in a FFA combat. Heres a list of tips that
    you might find helpful for your FFA combat.
        TIP #1: If you wanna duel, well then thats o"K"!
                  If you wanna duel with someone on an FFA
             server and dont want any disturbance from other
             players, walk up to your opponent and press K.
             Make sure your lightsaber is off. If they press
             K, then you two will go into a duel. No one from
             the FFA world can harm you, but you cant run off
             and harm them either!
       TIP #2: "Time we teach you the ropes."
                 Learn the environments of your maps. Learn
             every nook and cranny about them. In FFA you
             never know what will happen. At all times, if you
             want to be a pro fighting 3 or more people, you
             gotta know whats above, below, around, and beside
             you or else you will get caught by surprise or
             sniped or something!!
      TIP #3: Assign a Training Day
                At least one day in the week, you need not to
             get online and just go practicing your skills on
             a private little game you start. Just keep on
             practicing and praciticing. You can even add
             BOTs to help you! Trust me, just one day of
             training per week will get you into a very very
             good player. Thats what you will need for FFA
             because you never know what is going to happen!
           -^--- Duel ---^-
    Duel mode is just a one on one skill fight. Personally, I
    prefer duel mode. I like a specific rule on my duel fights.
    NO FORCE AND NO GUNS. With force, you never show your true
    skill, its just buttons on a keyboard. Guns? Bleh, thats
    just sick. Lightsabers show your true skill as a Jedi or
    Sith. So, heres the tips on duel mode!
      TIP #1: Expect the Unexpected
                Never underestimate your enemies. Watch their
            strategies and find their weaknesses. You never
            know what your opponent's next move will be. The
            best solution to the unknown is do something that
            will totally blow their mind.
      TIP #2: Don't Let the N00bs Slide..
               No matter how good anybody you are fighting is,
            never just go easy on them. Look, even a first
            timer is going to have a bit of skill with a saber,
            and you gotta fight that skill! Dont let them beat
            you or just mess with you. Dont let them just play
            around like going into a jumping (I can see you
            now flames2k1) frenzy. Kill them.
      TIP #3: Become one with the saber
               Practice your lightsaber skills. They will always
            come in handy.
           -^--- Jedi Master ---^-
    Now this mode is totally awesome. Everyone starts out as
    non-jedi players. There is a lightsaber somewhere in the
    map! Once a player picks up the lightsaber, they become a
    Jedi Master! They do not drop the saber until they are
      TIP #1: Become one with the saber
               Practice your lightsaber skills. They will always
            come in handy.
      TIP #2: Hide and Seek
               Shoot at the Jedi Master in dark places and run!
      TIP #3: Hide and Seek 2
               When a Jedi Master, turn off your lightsaber and
               hide until a non-jedi runs by. Then run up and
               kill them! Good strategy, no?
           -^--- Capture the Flag ---^-
    Capture the Flag is one of my least favorite modes because
    of the extreme difficulty. You must capture the opposing
    team's flag and bring it back to your own base.
      TIP #1: Be quick
               You need to move fast and not be seen by enemies.
      TIP #2: Dont leave alone
               A thief should never leave alone. They need to
               have at least one or two gaurdians with them.
               The gaurdians need to stay back a bit though,
               not close enough to interfere.
      TIP #3: Gaurdians of the Night
               Always leave people at your base to gaurd your
               own flag!
           -^--- Capture the Ysalamari ---^-
    This is just like Capture the Flag, but there is one big
    difference! Once you are carrying the Ysalamari you cannot
    use the force and the force cannot be used on you.
      TIP #1: Be quick
               You need to move fast and not be seen by enemies.
      TIP #2: Dont leave alone
               A thief should never leave alone. They need to
               have at least one or two gaurdians with them.
               The gaurdians need to stay back a bit though,
               not close enough to interfere.
      TIP #3: Gaurdians of the Night
               Always leave people at your base to gaurd your
               own Ysalamari!
           -^--- Holocron ---^-
    In Holocron mode, you start out with no force. There are
    force cubes all over the map in Holocron mode. Once you
    pick up the cube, you learn that force power.
      TIP #1: Dont share
               Dont let someone quickly steal a cube that you
               saw first. If they steal it, kill them with
               your own force powers you have. If you dont
               have any, kill them when you get some.
      TIP #2: Team Up and Team Down
               Try to get a negotiation going with someone
               you dont know. Once you think they least
               expect you to kill them, kill them.
      TIP #3: What A Laugh
               If you know someone wants a force cube really
               bad, find it quickly before they do and gaurd
               it. Hide right beside it and when they run
               by pull your lightsaber and show them who owns
               the cube :)
