Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I download JC2-MP?
JC2-MP is still under development and has not been released yet. However, we sometimes run public beta tests to test new features and find bugs. Info relating to the final test before release can be found on our website.
When was the last JC2-MP test?
You can find the history of JC2-MP tests here.
What version of the game do I need/Are pirated copies supported/Does the demo work?
Only the purchased Steam version is supported.
Please see this page for more information.
When will JC2-MP be released?
We are currently hoping for an initial release by the end of this year (2013). Other than that, there is no more information available.
Why do you shut down the server when testing is over?
Because we are holding controlled tests and JC2-MP is not released yet.
We only test when we believe that we have fixed an indeterminate number of bugs and we stop testing when we have found enough bugs to work on.
Can I change my model?
The Lua API gives server owners the ability to change models using scripts.
For the public test, press B to open the buy menu to purchase character models using money earned in-game.
Are there AI / NPCs?
No, and they are very unlikely to be added, at least not in the same sense as singleplayer.
Will 64 or 32-bit installs work?
Yes. It makes no difference.
Does this work on PS3/Xbox 360?
No, and it won't. Ever.
Will JC2-MP affect my single-player game?
No, the mod does not affect your game saves in any way.
Is the JC2-MP team accepting donations?
Yes, we are currently accepting donations to cover hosting costs. You can donate here.
Is JC2-MP free to play?
Yes, the mod is completely free to download and play.

During our public beta tests, there is a player list that is accessed by pressing the F6 key.
How do I open the map?
How do I hide the chat?
Can I spawn vehicles? Weapons? etc...
This is up to server owners.
In our public beta tests, and with the default scripts, vehicles spawn in specific locations. Weapons are given to you when you spawn. We are also running a buy menu script. It allows you to purchase vehicles, weapons, and skins with money you earn through play.
How often do vehicles respawn?
By default, vehicles respawn after 45 seconds of unuse. If a vehicle explodes, it will respawn within 8 seconds. These can be changed in the server config.
It is also worth noting that vehicles can only be damaged when there's a player driving them.
Can I access the black market?
No. The black market from singleplayer will not be in the mod. Its functionality will be scriptable using Lua. In fact, the buy menu running during the public tests is a perfect example of a black market replacement.

Server Hosting FAQ
Can I host my own server?
No, the server software is not available to the public at this time. It will be released when JC2-MP itself has been released.
Will there be a Linux build of the server?
Yes, there are both Windows and Linux builds of the server. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the Linux server are available.
Will the server support scripting?
Yes, the server will provide a scripting interface using the Lua language.
Can LAN-only servers be hosted?
Yes, servers can be hosted fine on a LAN. Unless your server is exposed to the internet, then it is already LAN-only.
How does the server handle DLC?
The server will be able to require or disable any DLC for all players.
During public betas, all DLC is disabled. There is the exception of one DLC race (Salad Island Hovercrafting), which only allows owners of the Agency Hovercraft DLC to join.
When will the server be released?
At the same time as when JC2-MP is released.
Which resources does the server need?
We have previously measured that the server, with 1000 players concurrently playing, used 2 CPU cores (2.93 GHz), 90 MB of RAM, 5 MB of disk space and 35 Mbits per second.
We are working on improving the CPU usage and try to further optimize the bandwidth usage to make sure they are reasonable.
