    Download Patch 1.01

    ################################

    Star Wars(TM) Jedi Knight(TM) : Jedi Academy(TM) Update ReadMe
    Version 1.01
    10/29/2003

    ################################

    Thank you for downloading the Jedi Academy(TM) Update.

    Global

    Fixed dynamic glow performance for new ATI drivers (if you are
    experiencing low framerate, go into Setup - More Video and
    change dynamic glow to off).
    Updated EAX 4.0 sound support.

    Single Player fixes

    Force feedback defaults to off (if you are experiencing hiccupping
    while playing, especially during lightsaber battles, go into
    Controls - Mouse/Joystick and set force feedback to "No").
    Note: Gravis gamepad users should turn force feedback to off.
    Gravis drivers aren’t compatible with Jedi Academy and will
    cause the game to crash.
    Patch will work around manufacturing defect which causes
    single player not to run.
    Resetting defaults in game will no longer reset your skill level.
    Fixed bug allowing player to select a force power that had already
    been maxed out.
    Fixed animation issue if enemies force push you while executing a
    special move.
    Ragdoll fixes.

    Multiplayer fixes

    Fixed bug causing Internet servers to time out too early on master
    server list.
    Fixed bug causing various movement sounds not to play consistently
    (footsteps, rolling, etc.).
    Fixed bug regarding turning off of second saber.
    Fixed bug preventing camera shake if hit by explosive.
    Fixed roll animation.
    Fixed exploit allowing for illegal character models.
    Fixed bug allowing rocket launcher lock-on after death.
    Various exploit fixes.

    *****************************************
    Please note: Server admins must update their servers to the new
    1.01 code. This may take a few days and 1.01 multiplayer games
    may be scarce until all servers upgrade to 1.01.

    I recently bought Audigy2 ZS. I've never used Creative sound card before so this is my first.
    I installed the drivers and software on the CD that came with the product. I also downloaded EAX 4.0 driver update(SBA2_EAX4DRV_031031.exe)

    My questions are

    1. Do I just execute the downloaded update file on top of my current driver? Don't I have to remove previous one? The thing is I'm not sure what to do with this Creative software. The CD installed whole bunch of things on my computer. How do I install this new update?

    2. Reading this thread, I encountered quite a few unfamiliar terms like 'CTCOMP', 'CTZAPXX', and few more. I suppose they are some sort of patchs or add-ons. Are these somethings I need to know to make use of driver updates in the future? Could any of you be a good sport and explain what these are about?

    3. I heard some bad things about creative drivers/software. Some say they put much junk files on a machine when installing them and pollute the registry and are also hard to remove. With this card in my machine, is there something I should be cautious about in the future when I download and update Creative files?

    BTW, I came from nForce1 sound and I am quite happier with this card. Better sound definately

    Thanks guys.

    1. Just install it, don't uninstall anything.
    2. CTCOMP is a tool used for making new drivers compatible with old cards. CTZAPXX is Creative's driver (un)installer.
    3. I don't know of any problems, because I haven't installed them for a long time, but IMHO they are bloated and way too oversized for features they offer.

    Thanks, RIV@NVX for help.

    I executed file and rebooted. It says version 2.00.09 in EAX console. Also 2.00.08 for theme engine, 2.00.11 for playback and recording subsystem. Is this the version I am supposed to get with this new update?

    Thanks again.:lol:

    I don't really know, but I assume that if updates installed without problems, that everything is OK ;)

    Audigy 2 ZS

    I recently replaced a Soundblaster Live with an Audigy 2 ZS. Using Driver Cleaner I removed the previous drivers. Now when I play games the computer crashes but works fine in other applications ( music etc). I have installed the latest drivers. Help would be appreciated.

    Re: Audigy 2 ZS

    I would advise you to re-install DirectX 9. Download the full install & it will re-install itself.

    P.S. You also might want to check your IRQ's.
