P-Edge media has released a new utility for users of Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. The utility is a Game Server Configulator designed for hosting online group games. The app features a simplified interface for custom game parameter setting and configuration. According to P-Edge media:
P-Edge media, the Haarlem (Netherlands) based one-man company has announced a new Mac OSX Game Server Configulator (also known as GSC) application, this time specially made for Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy.
Immediately after Lucas Artsi release of the "JKJA dedicated server executable" work was started to build a GSC user interface for it.
The new application is called "Game Server Configulator (Jedi Academy)" and allows the user to set up and run a dedicated Jedi Academy server, without knowing Terminal commands and editing all the variables in the configuration file.
GSC Jedi Academy will have over 25 configurable options and the user can load and save several different server configurations. While the server is running it can broadcast server messages, the administrator can view the scores, send text messages to the players and perform immediate map changes and player kicks. A console window is included to watch what happens on the server.
You can find more information about the GSG release at the P-Edge media Web site. The Game Server Configulator for Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy is available as freeware.
