CHANGELOG

General

  • New: You no longer need to create replacement models for them to be seen in Open.
    • Each class menu toggles between either official "default" models or "custom" downloaded models.
    • If you do not have another player's downloaded model or model pack, you will see the default model
      • Sith default is Shadowtrooper, Jedi default is Jedi Trainer
    • In order to tag a model as a custom model you must change the name of the model folder ny adding the prefix listed below for a specified class. Recommended syntax being +ClassID_ModelName
      • Imperial Soldier: +sol
      • Rebel Soldier: +tro
      • Commander: +com
      • Elite Trooper: +eli
      • Sith: +sit
      • Jedi: +jed
      • Bounty Hunter: +bou
      • Hero: +her
      • SBD: +sbd
      • Wookiee: +woo
      • Droideka: +dek
      • Clone: +clo
      • Mandalorian: +man
      • ARC: +arc
    • Peneke Pack 1.9 will provide a good example for how this new process works. It should be very easy to add models into MBII from JKHub, all that is required is a program which opens .pk3s and to simply rename a directory +jed_nameofmodeldirectory (as an example for how to add custom Jedi models in). We can't wait to see what kinds of models and model packs you all come up within this easier system!
  • New: Can swap starting spawns and objectives of Red/Blue teams via g_teamSwap
    • It is advised to restart map (smod newround or rcon map_restart 0) to avoid issues.
  • New: Added optional class limits, primarily designed to be used for competitive matches or servers.
    • Contained in a single new cvar g_classlimits that uses class numbers separated by dashes to determine limits.
    • This replaces g_AllowedHeroClasses and g_AllowedVillainClasses
      • Default values: "50-50-50-50-50-50-50-50-50-50-50-50-50-50"
        • Any value larger than 32 is considered to be infinite.
        • A value of 00 disables that class
        • Classes follow the following slots in the string.
          • Soldier - 1
          • Trooper - 2
          • Commander - 3
          • Elite Trooper - 4
          • Sith - 5
          • Jedi - 6
          • Bounty Hunter - 7
          • Hero - 8
          • SBD - 9
          • Wookiee - 10
          • Droideka - 11
          • Clone Trooper - 12
          • Mandalorian - 13
          • Arc Trooper - 14
      • For example: g_classlimits "16-16-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00" sets the server to allow only soldiers.
  • Change: g_allowunbalance and g_autoteambalance cvar's have been rolled into a single g_balancecvar.
    • If -1, autobalance is off.
    • If 0, teams must be absolutely equal or spectating will occur.
    • If 1, teams are allowed to be uneven by 1 player
    • If 2, teams are allowed to have up to 2 player difference
    • Etc.
  • Change: sv_privatePassword now works with passworded servers (clients using the private slot password will be allowed to connect).
    • Change: g_minMBPoints now defaults to 80.
    • Change: sv_maxConnectionsg_maxGameClients no longer broadcast via ServerInfo to save cvar char space.
    • Change: Changed g_SiegeClassQueue -> scq to save ServerInfo (noted for thoroughness, not something server owners need to care about).
    • Change: Performance optimizations for PB Indicator function.
    • Change: Mouse 2 blocking is now more reliably predicted - this should help players with higher ping!
    • Change: Minor performance optimizations for weapon override system.
    • Change: Major reworking of class system & spawn system backend. This will allow us to much more easily change, balance, and add to new and existing classes as well as clean up several existing bugs. This change is completely understated,
    • Change: No longer possible to alter model RGB color mid-round due to backend changes. Color changes will apply in the next round.
    • Change: Updated default keybind file (mpdefault.cfg).
    • Change: Increased memory dedicated to .sab files to avoid crashes and allow further additions.
    • Fix: Removed many duplicate files within MGMP.
    • Fix: Fix crash when switching map using a target_level_change.
    • Fix: Fix a bug where Wookiee rage would kill other sounds.
    • Fix: Class backend rework should also fix an exploit where Wookiee had the ability to use a low level of Force Jump.
    • Fix: Join bug (it is unclear if all join bugs are fixed, but this should alleviate the more annoying ones).
    • Removed: Removed pausing when local hosting when opening menus as it interferes with tutorial elements.

Duel Mode

  • Feature: Private Duels
    • It is now possible to challenge an enemy to a private duel by performing the bowing taunt while targeting that enemy (in Duel mode). If the enemy responds with a bowing taunt of his own within 3s, targeting the player who challenged him first, the two of them will then engage in a private duel.
    • At the start of a private duel, movement and attack input are restricted for 1s and both parties benefit from invulnerability from spawn bubbles for 1s; the same occurs at the end of a private duel except only the attack input is restricted (and for 3s).
    • After challenging someone, or after ending a duel, a player cannot issue or accept other challenges for 3s.
    • While in a private duel:
      • All other players become invisible to the duelists, and the duelists cannot have any gameplay interaction with them. The duelists can see a subtle transparent white shader around them to signify that they are engaged in a duel.
      • The duelists remain visible to all other players, but these players players cannot have any gameplay interaction with them. To these players, the duelists become transparent with a blue shader around them to signify that they are engaged in a duel. We are still working on hiding outside effects while within private duels.
    • If someone outside of a duel was clipping into a duelist who just got out of his duel, that player who was clipping will automatically be killed.
    • HP/FP/BP stats are refilled upon starting/ending private duels (this can be removed by setting the cvar g_DuelRefillStatsOnKill to 0).
    • Private duels in duel mode can be enabled/disabled server-side via the cvar g_PrivateDuels 0/1 (default 1).
    • New commands for private dueling:
      • /duel_end can be used to manually end a private duel at any time.
      • /duel_ignorechat can be used to start/stop ignoring any chat from players other than your opponent.
    • Known issues:
      • Some sounds and effects from other players not in the duel, like saber clashes, may not be properly isolated.
      • Changing a running server from another mode to duel made may cause bugs in private duels (such as invisible participants). This can be worked around using the map_restart command.
  • New: added the following server cvars specific for Duel Mode
    • g_DuelLives 1-99 (default 3): custom number of lives for all players.
    • g_DuelRespawn 0/1 (default 1): if set to 0, players will no longer respawn for the current round once they've used up their lives.
    • g_DuelRefillStatsOnKill 0/1 (default 1): if set to 0, HP/FP/BP will no longer be refilled when scoring a kill on an enemy (does not affect stat refilling from private duels).
    • g_DuelTimeLimit 300-900 (default 900): custom time limit for the round, limited to 5-15mn.
    • g_DuelFriendlyTeam 0/1 (default 0): if set to 1, players on your team will once again appear as friendlies, force powers will no longer work on them and hurting them will add TK points (and stats cannot be refilled by killing friendlies).
  • New: Force teaming someone will now reset a player's midround joining values.
  • Change: Force Repulse re-enabled for Duel Mode in private duels.
  • Change: There is no longer a wait time after setting points.

Tutorials

  • Feature: The first two Tutorials are now available. These cover:
    1. Movement & Weapons
    2. Joining & Class Configuration
  • New: Shooting Range. Access the shooting range to test out classes and weaponry on a set of targets.
    • Note: Tutorial's are still considered to be in a Phase 1 state as a "work in progress". There are many features we were unable to add in the allotted time, and plan to expand upon them. Several features in the shooting range have been disabled or taken out and will be expanded upon in the future.

Progressive Siege

  • Feature: A new map objective mode titled Progressive Siege has been added.
    • Progressive Siege follows the standard Assault format, however instead of playing on the same level each round you can now progress through a larger level in stages. The number of stages depends on the level itself and how the map progresses or regresses depends upon the level designer.
      • A level can be setup by the designer to progress when the attacking team wins, and regress when the defending team wins.
      • It can also be setup to only progress when the attacking team wins, but not regress so forward progress is not lost.
      • A combination of the above two can also be used to create checkpoints that an attacking team must reach.
      • The first few official progressive siege levels will follow the first one where the level will progress when the attacking team wins and regress when the attacking team loses.
    • Each area of a Progressive Siege level is capable of having a different time limit that can match the size of the area.

Legends Mode

  • Feature: A new gamemode (MBMode 4) that uses a set global Full Authentic featuring many characters from the Star Wars universe each with their own unique stats and abilities. This new mode will be actively updated, expect this first version to have some balance issues with certain classes.
  • New: Can specify custom global FA teams within this mode via g_siegeteam1g_siegeteam2
    • This means if you wanted to, you could have Dinosaurs from the Movie Game Map Pack vs Kylo Ren and the First Order.
      • Example: rcon g_siegeteam1 "300SP" + rcon g_siegeteam2 "CSS_T" + rcon map_restart 0 was a hilarious combination we tested out in beta - Spartans vs. Counter Strike Terrorists.
      • All that is required is to find the .mbtc file for each team (found within ext_data/mb2/teamconfig directory which is within the MBAssets3MB2_CMP_Assets3MB2_PB_Assets2MB2_uM_assets3 and 03_MovieGameMapPack .pk3s respectively.
    • It is advised to restart the map (map_restart or map switch) or you may run into issues.

Gameplay

  • New: Can now initiate groundstabs while in the air!
  • Change: Projectile Rifle
    • Base damage reduced from 150 to 100.
  • Change: EE3
    • Sniper base damage reduced from 100 to 60.
    • Ammo drain for sniper shots reduced from 35 to 26 (allows for 3 shots instead of 2).
  • Change: Clone Trooper Ion blobs
    • Increased shock duration factor from 3x to 3.5x.
  • Change: Mandalorian Wrist Laser
    • Ammo regen rate cooldown reduced from 5 seconds to 3 seconds
    • Now overloads with a lightning spark visual effect, instead of exploding and being destroyed for the rest of the round. Time to start recharging shots after overloading is doubled from normal regen rate.
    • When overloading, the weapon mode switching sound is now always played, instead of only when we actually do have a flamethrower to automatically switch to, in order to alert the player of the overload either way.
    • Added a cooldown bar representing ammo regen cooldown as well as increased ammo regen cooldown when overloading.
    • Muzzlepoint standardized according to other guns but on the left side, instead of being tied to the hand position, and bolt trajectory made parallel to camera aim for better consistency instead of going to the center of the dynamic crosshair. This will be slightly inaccurate to the player's crosshair (slightly to its left), unless in melee because the crosshair positioning was adjusted in melee-only, specifically to cater to this wrist laser change.
  • Change: Wookiee Bowcaster
    • Slight buffs to levels 1 and 2 rate of fire.
  • Change: Saber vs Gun
    • Replaced flinch with normalized knockback, gunshots with damage lower than 30 will deal twice their usual amount of knockback, gunshots with damage between 30 and 60 will always deal a 60 damage shot's worth of knockback, gunshots with damage above 60 keep their knockback unchanged. This applies against opponents wielding a saber, not just jedi/sith classes. Only triggers in close range (about 1.5 swing's length).
  • Change: Staggers removed from side/back kicks with sabers out.
  • Change: Extended defense arc for Staff/Duals slightly reduced
  • Change: Different types/timing of saber clashes now have different sounds.
  • Change: Lowered damage taken for being hit while knocked down/rolling from 1.5x to 1.25x
    Change: Lowered penalty to outgoing damage for attacking while crouching from 1.5x to 1.25x
  • Fix: Trying to swing after doing a slap/kick (default special 2 melee moves) will now allow for any swing to start rather than always being a W swing.
  • Fix: 1.2x damage multiplier for being hit during slaps/special melee moves now properly applies again.
  • Fix: The damage registered for charging shot for on normal pistols/Westars now update every 1/10th of a second of charging instead of 1 second. Should help with more accurate damage scaling.
  • Fix: Swinging into someone doing a special move will no longer cause damage/effects to the one swinging without them actually hitting you with the attack.
  • Fix: Swingblocking with Q3 no longer suffers from increased FP drains due to the swingblocking FP drain penalty being applied on top of the attacking-with-Q3 penalty.
  • Fix: Saber special moves or any other saber move whose animation includes legs, are now interrupted properly when hit by projectiles, instead of continuing their animation incorrectly.
  • Fix: Dodge anims being overridden by the standing-in-melee anim.
  • Fix: PB indicators have been optimized, also shouldn't get stuck or draw vs enemies that don't have sabers anymore.
  • Fix: Visually drawing purple stars on enemy force users that are using Sense below level 2.
  • Fix: You may now use more weapons than saber or E-11 while mounted on a vehicle.
  • Fix: Fixed the number of times that specials can hit. All specials besides the following hit 1 time:
    • Staff/Duals jumping attacks: 4
    • Duals crouching attacks: 4
    • Staff crouching attack: 5
    • Spinning crouch attack: 4

Full Authentic

  • New: Gunbash ability! An ability initially for FA only, this is a small buff for soldier classes. If timed right, this ability staggers swinging Jedi.
  • The first wave of Gunbash implimentation has been added to 65 sold characters across all packs, mainly within: Legacy, PowerBattles, BoC, CloudCity, CommTower, Dotf, DeathStar, Echo Base, Enclave, Jabba, Jedi Temple, Tantive, Yavin, CMP_Lab, Arena, Aliens, 300, MediEvil and a few others. More additions to come.
    • For FA editors: MB_ATT_GUNBASH: grants any class except SBDs, Wookiees BHs the ability to gunbash via /ability2 (except when holding a saber and having the ability to slap, in which case slap overrides it); soldiers/ETs when they have this flag, will also be able to gunbash via special 2 (and as a side note when either of these 3 classes get this FA flag, it overrides their having sufficient Close Combat Training level i.e. they'll be able to gunbash even without CCT and without necessarily having to benefit from the other bonuses that CCT gives).
  • Activated via class special 2 for Soldiers, Elite Troopers and Clones, alt ability 3 for the other classes.
  • Does not restrict movement in any way.
  • Causes saberists to stagger if Gunbashed while swinging
  • Can hit a target quickly after the animation has started (200ms after the start), cannot hit at the very end of the animation (during the last 200ms).
  • Has a cooldown of 2s between activations, shown via a cooldown bar, which does not restrict special melee moves and vice-versa.
  • Deals 5 damage on hit.
  • Always causes a long stagger on hit, except against Droidekas as well as targets that have a higher Strength attribute (unless the attacker benefits from the CFL_HEAVYMELEE FA flag, in which case the victim's Strength attribute is ignored). Jedi/Sith can block projectiles with their saber out during this stagger.
  • New: General Grievous given four sabers in Battle over Coruscant MB2_BoC and Legends Mode.
    • Some animations are broken, this will be fixed in a later patch.
  • New: general modifiers for FAs (each new lines within ClassInfo)
    • damageProtection (default - 1, 0.8 would reduce damage felt by 20%)
    • damageAmplify (default - 1, 0.8 would reduce damage output by 20%)
    • rateOfFire (default - 0, 1.5 would be 50% faster RoF)
  • Change: Base force powers re-enabled for FA:
    • Force Team Heal (FP_TEAM_HEAL) re-enabled.
    • Force Team Energize (FP_TEAM_FORCE) re-enabled
    • Force Absorb (FP_ABSORB) re-enabled.
    • Force Protect (FP_PROTECT) re-enabled.
  • Change: Reworked MGMP files to use the same format as official, cmp, umad files to make it easier to modify and fix issues.
  • Change (for FA editors): FP_TEAM_HEAL is now MB_ATT_DEFLECT FP_SABERTHROW is now MB_ATT_FORCEBLOCK
    • Updated Official, CMP, uM, MGMP and PB FAs to be compatible with the above changes
  • Change: Some balance tweaks made to PowerBattles FA.
    • Attempts have been made to fix crashes occurring, but these happen largely in part because PowerBattles exceeds the engine limits.
  • Change / Fix: Miraluka sense should work properly again in FA, but is configured differently now:
    • Classflag CFL_MIRALUKA changed to attribute MB_ATT_FP_MIRALUKA
      • Miraluka mirrors Force Sense and requires FP_SEE in order to work. There are now three levels of Miraluka.
      • Auto activates upon spawn, drains no FP, and plays no sound.
    • Configure attribute and sense level 3 to emulate old classflag behavior.
  • Fix: "Take That" Kyle taunts occurring instead of intended sounds for CMP, MGMP and uM map packs.
  • Fix: Blind no longer affects teammates and builds TK points on the use
