Jedi Knight II
ties up some potentially issue-causing loose ends. In particular, the NPC files that don\'t exist in JK2. The original mod, made by Dark Maul, was converted by J_B_ for use in JK2 without any of the added baggage that isn\'t necessary. I assume it\'s otherwise unmodified, or any modifications are very subtle. However, as with the original, you will be able to partake of \"copious amounts of blood\" and because JK2 is so much cooler than JK3 in the dismemberment department, you can scatter stormtrooper bits everywhere along with gallons of blood! Sound disgusting and gorey? Excellent. Naturally if you don\'t [i]want[/i] your game to be disgusting and gorey, you\'re more than welcome to skip over this mod. Those of you who aren\'t bothered by a little unrealistically over-the-top gore (that\'s the way we like it, right?!) will be very pleased at the new addition for Outcast! Make sure you take a look, or grab the original if you\'re looking for the JK3 variant! ~Inyri
dice! [b]Instructions:[/b] Unzip the "enyak_mutilate.pk3" file into your GameData/base directory and you're all set! [b]Notes:[/b] - Works in Single Player only - Doesn't always cut off limbs etc. but it does every so often
should have noticed, this is a JK2 mod. Most of the material that was "borrowed" is from JK3, so this author is simply bringing his favorite bits over into JK2, while including some of his own work. So let's have a taste of what we get here. First, you can either play with a katana or some better sabers. Each have their own special effects, so check out the readme for what's compatible/incompatible. The spawn bubble is now red, and the menu has been changed a bit. This author even made his own opening logos ROQ video! There are also some new stances included, which are definitely different than anything I've seen. I love the red stance - looks like a baseball bat stance ;). Definitey some effort in this file, and the new menu and splash screens just look cool in my opinion. But if you're a JK2 player, decide for yourself! ~Inyri
with ForceMod and will work with some versions of JediMod/OmniMod (though he isn\'t sure about all versions). Smoke Ring Halo hasn\'t given all the author\'s credit simply because there would be too many to list. Suffice it to say that the author here is not taking credit from the original creators, he is simply improving upon their already great work. :) ~AmosMagee
and makes the inside of his robes dark/shadowy.)[/quote]
1.2 code so that all those features are available to you while you use their mod! Look for yourself, looks like they did quite a job on this: [b]Note:[/b] There are some cfg's in the zip that can change your key binds and settings while using the mod. I would recommend not unzipping these cfg's but that is up to you :D
some "oomph" to the game ;). [quote]Changes: saber is now kinda orangy and the blurcore is changed Kyle is wearing leather clothes with an exposed sixpac, kyle sprayed his hair red, jan is now a blondie, luke thought he'd join the circus and has never taken off his makeup ever since, the flechette skin is now really cool ^_^ the thermal detonater is a smily face the e-11 is now a 'snowtroop rifle' and shoots purple lasers, the emp secondary shockwave is red orange yellowy force push is now TONS mad since i turned it into toxic gas, there is blood rain at the swamp, force gem is now sith stone, bacta is red, ghost morgan is now a gold statue.[/quote] It's pretty neat, check it out :D Just a few screenies showing some of the skinned stuff :)
Jedi, Kyle, Luke, Mon Mothma, Morgan, all Reborns, Shadowtrooper, Stormtrooper, and Tavion to newly skinned Gonks or R2 Units...[/quote] LOL! This was kind of funny to play with! "This makes saber battles alot easier, as they cant use there sabers! w00t!" so true ;) If you're looking to make SP a little more fun, you must get this! The Black R2 is Tavion, and Kyle is the white R2.. just an example :D
sounds.[/quote] This mod reverses the force sides in SP. This time YOU are of the dark side against the light side. The mod is little weird because you can still hear Kyle\'s voice and everything, but whatever was possible to change was changed (like sabers, sound effects, etc.). Unzip all 3 pk3\'s to your base folder to make this mod work.
will only be replaced if/when you want him to :)
altogether. I think it\'s a nice mod and though originally based off another mod it is nice and fun. The colors make this a good mod to play around with, but a little late in the life of JK2. Let\'s hope Mace continues to mod. ^_^ - Chrono
lightsaber glows into glows closer to that of Episode II. I've seen pretty much every blade modification out there, and by far this is my favorite. Hopefully TimK decides to do more for the community, especially when JKA finally hits the shelves. - Chrono
Yeah. Okay, so compared to the original HUD for JK2 Caladien's is much more interesting. Large spikes adorn the edges of the dials and the red lines across the face of each one are more prominent. The new version compared to Caladien's old version really isn't all that different. In fact, I would prefer the red lines less noticable, like in the original HUD he created. But I definitely like the spikes in his newer one better. So like, good job there, Caladien. :) ~AmosMagee
mod that changes the glow around the saber blades to achieve somewhat of a layered effect. Each saber’s color is enhanced by a different colored core. My personal favorite is the purple saber with red blur core. Nice looking with this effect. The blades themselves look clean and little bit slimmer to me than the default ones. This also has nice custom sounds. They were also cleaner sounding, as if the saber were “thinner.” Author indicates that included is support for “Tck Jedimod.” Download Factor: Nice effects and no bugs in testing. I like this enough to call it a keeper. Features: Added effects to sabers New sounds for sabers Happy gaming – Prom
like to put in a suggestion right now: The button you press to put away your lightsaber, should shieth the sword in this game. Just a suggestion.....
decide you want it back! :D [b]Install:[/b] Extract the .bmp of the launcher you want (to your JK2/Install folder), rename it to \"product.bmp\" and there ya go!
fight against Gungans) is really nice :D. This mod uses the excellent model by Major Clod. [b]Install:[/b] To play as a gungan, export the \"JarJar\" files to your \'GameData\' folder. To play [u]against[/u] gungans, export the \"h8JarJar\" files to your \'GameData\' folder.
saber choice).[/quote] A nice little SP pack that lets you pick your own saber and your own skin. You can become Desann, Luke, a reborn or a shadowtrooper. This version also includes sound changes which will fit your model appropriately. [b]Note:[/b] Only extract 1 saber and 1 model changer at one time. You cannot have 2 saber .pk3's working at the same time :)
Changes: Kyle into C3P0 Jan into imperial protocol droid[/quote] If only the droids could sit ;) the droids can\'t use the saber (except throw), can\'t roll or flip. But funny as anything to see those droids walking around all frantic! :D
well. [/quote] Twin brothers in war??? :D
each saber choice)[/quote] You should find 6 pk3 files in there. \'skinname saber.pk3\' \'SP_skinname.pk3\' You should have Desann, Luke and Reborn. Extract only the 2 files you wish to play with and not any other! As in, one saber pk3 and one SP pk3. This should also (hopefully) satisfy some of you who\'ve been dying for some change in SP. I think this is the first Reborn SP (maybe even Luke) mod I\'ve seen :)
effect. So the author fiddled around with the effects until he came up with this, which in essence replaces the hit effects for the AT-ST, Bryar, Repeater, E-11, and turret with the effects for the disruptor. Not a bad little thing, since the effects do make sense. If you’re using an energy weapons, shouldn’t the walls melt, even a little? I think so, so I like this mod. I also tested it in Jedi Academy, and it works there as well as in Jedi Outcast. So enjoy. ~Zach
give these a try. I also see no reason why they won't work in Academy also, so JKA players feel free to try them out. ~ Kouen
renamed several force powers, changed the title from silver to gold, removes the shield, makes fire appear more vivid, changes the effects for certain weapons, renames the red/blue teams to Imperial/Rebel, and removes the bubble from Capture The Ysalimiri. A basic mod, although some might like the changes. Personally I prefer vanilla JK2, just because that's what JK2 is, and always has been. But hey, if you like the sounds of this, give it a download. Don't complain about lack of screenshots, please. The author didn't submit any, and we're no longer obligated to take them ourselves. While under normal circumstances I would have taken some anyway, right now we're all just too busy. ~ Kouen
the same thing all the time. What if all that needed to be changed was the sky to give it a bit more of a kick? iMetali chose to give Bespin a mountain range with a lake and a bright blue sky. This does look familiar to me, but I can\'t place it. So if you love Bespin, but hate that orange sky, download this little mod to get a more Naboo flavored Bespin Streets for your JK2 game. :) ~AmosMagee
spike is located at the center area, which makes the hud look finished. It is even better for mods that have 5 stances because everytime I would play JediPlus the purple stance looked red so I always thought I was using red, but when I tried this one it is much better to see. It looks a lot like the first version of his hud just BETTER! This is much better than most huds out there and I would say \'GET THIS!\'. Its an awesome looking hud, so mean and sharp. Its clean and it has no glitches. Caladien really has done it this time he made this hud better and better and I don\'t think any other hud can compare. Unfortunatly he said this might be his last file for JK2 because JK3/JKA is right around the corner. I recommend that people get this if you are looking for a new hud. Great Job Caladien keep up the good work and I can\'t wait to see your work in JK3/JKA. -XgamerX Here was AmosMagee\'s review of the last spiked hud: [quote]Well, I\'d quote from the review of the first version of Caladien\'s HUD, but I just couldn\'t find it. Soooo ... that\'s not gonna happen. On with my review of his update to the HUD that isn\'t ... here. Yeah. Okay, so compared to the original HUD for JK2 Caladien\'s is much more interesting. Large spikes adorn the edges of the dials and the red lines across the face of each one are more prominent. The new version compared to Caladien\'s old version really isn\'t all that different. In fact, I would prefer the red lines less noticable, like in the original HUD he created. But I definitely like the spikes in his newer one better. So like, good job there, Caladien. ~AmosMagee[/quote]
animations, and you change the way the saber moves through the air, which means that you end up completely transforming the game. This might appeal to some folks; God knows that there are a ton of folks out there that love JediPlus for its extra stances and new saber moves and whatnot. Unfortunately, it just doesn\'t appeal to me. That makes reviewing a mod like this, while remaining completely objective, a very, very difficult task. So, here\'s my solution: I\'m going to look at this mod as though all that was changing were aesthetics; as if the gameplay doesn\'t change a whit. If that were the case, the mod\'s actually pretty nifty; the new blue stance has you holding the hilt high over your head (but DAMN, even [i]my[/i] arms were getting tired after a few minutes play); the new yellow stance is actually pretty close to the original (though there are some subtle differences); and best of all, the new red stance idle position looks like a batter getting ready to swing. The problem with the idle stances is that when they combine with the bow-legged look of the legs, things feel instantly out of place. Where as the split fore-and-aft stance of the feet seems to make sense with the normal stances, in the mod they look a little... [i]released[/i]... if you get my drift. The walking animation\'s been altered, so that, when you\'re playing as a male model, you no longer look like a transvestite; the feminine stalk is gone. On the other hand, the new walk looks like you\'re carrying a soccer ball between your thighs -- the design of the models makes it look as though the male models have hips, and males should NOT have visible hips. It\'s a toss-up; you end up trading one slight downside for another slight downside. The walk is admittedly, however, a refreshing change. Then there are the moves. Ahh, the moves. Annoyingly, all the basic swings and slashes seem to be identical to their base brethren. This is fine, except for the case of the red stance swing; with the hilt held in a batter\'s position, you REALLY want to start swinging at baseballs, and you just can’t. As far as the special moves go, you\'ll recognize them if you\'ve played JediPlus. The same thing goes for the rolls and JediMoves. The problem is, folks, that it\'s not just aesthetics that are changed; it\'s gameplay. The blue lunge is now a whirlwind attack, and the red is the same thing but has you spinning the other way around. Distances are modified, damages feel as though they\'re different; it\'s an entirely new gameplay experience. The thing is, it\'s almost TOO busy. There\'s TOO MUCH movement, TOO MUCH change, to feel homely. Instead, the sense of awkwardness just never seems to leave. But then again, that\'s just me. The bottom line? You\'re reading an undeniably biased review. So just download it, for God\'s sakes, it\'s certainly small enough. See what it\'s like for yourself. Like it? Great! Don\'t? Okey-dokey. Fine with me. Just leave me some garlic bread when you leave. And no, that last line isn\'t supposed to make sense. Stop laughing at my insanity; it\'s inborn. I mean... Damnit. New Textures: It\'s an animation mod. New Sounds: It\'s an animation mod. New Maps: It\'s an animation mod. New Models: It\'s an animation mod. New Skins: IT\'S AN ANIMATION MOD! New Animations: Hey, yeah! - Dan \"ViperEye\" Tennant
this little mod is a text file containing all the necessary console commands. Personally, whether it\'s for AdminMod, Academy Mod, Base, or OmniMod, I prefer to use my own binding methods. However, the console command list is definitely a great catch, so download this if you don\'t really know any commands. - Chrono
kind of disappoints. Not in a bad way, since the rolling is now cooler with cartwheels and butterflies. Unfortunately, the stances could use a little work. The red stance is great (replaced with Desann's) in appearance now, but the yellow and blue stances are a bit out of...well...place. The blue stance puts the saber right through some heads of player models, and the yellow stance looks unnatural. Download it if you like animation mods, otherwise, hope the author releases a v2.0 and satisfies us all ^_^. * Note: I do like it, outside of the yellow and blue stances. - Chrono
the bar - is now a Sprite bottle with this mini-mod. That is all this mod does. So if it\'s important to you that the wine bottle not be so generic and have a Sprite label - download this little mod now! ~AmosMagee
about this file? It looks like the Matrix code. And it's a shader. So, it is what it is and it looks good. So, good job! ~AmosMagee
things to say. As she so eloquently put it -- and I\'m sure I\'m paraphrasing here -- \"there\'s only about a million things you can say about a Reborn skin, and we\'ve done then all three times over.\" I\'m certain she was lying, but I was also a little worried: what would I do when such a skin came across my monitor? Let\'s find out. The very originally named \"Alttrooperskin\" (don\'t step in the sarcasm, folks) doesn\'t strive for all that much. It comes with two separate color variations of the Stormtrooper, both of which are direct recolors of the Stormtrooper team skins, evident by the obscene amount of scrapes and scratches that Raven threw in because they couldn\'t think of anything else to add. The very annoying thing about this little pack is that each .pk3 alters the generic white Trooper skin completely (in both single- and multiplayer), and they\'re incompatible with each other. In short, it means that if you have an insatiable craving for neon green or vomit orange on your Stormtrooper, you can fix the problem very quickly, but you don\'t ever get to see the white Trooper skin again -- unless you delete the .pk3, of course. The skins themselves aren\'t half bad, but all they ARE recolors. The author literally took each .jpg, pulled it into PhotoShop (or PhotoPaint, or whatever photo-editing utility you want to say he used because you use that utility, and as we all know, the utility that YOU use is the best), selected the ENTIRE IMAGE, and changed the hue/color saturation. For those who haven\'t used PhotoShop, it boils down to about 30 seconds per skin: a grand total of one minute for the development of this submission. In addition, one starts to believe that the reason this is a skinmod and not a standalone skin is because making a standalone requires the addition of botfiles and all that nasty stuff -- although, admittedly, that would disallow the skin from being used in singleplayer. Now, the author fully admits to us in his readme that this is his first skin, so I\'m inclined to cut him a little slack. The character portraits are okay (they aren\'t original, but are rather recolors of the original Stormtrooper\'s portrait, which means that they don\'t have all the scrapes in the picture that they have in-game), and the skins don\'t really look half-bad. Luckily enough, the only way you can really go wrong with a recolor is if you pick a bad color. Of course, I\'m still trying to figure out why he chose orange. The Bottom Line: They aren\'t bombs, but they aren\'t pretty gardens of flowers either. A new developer\'s first skin, and one that, due to the fact that they edit the original Stormtrooper completely, can be used in singleplayer. It\'s a very simple minimod, and it doesn\'t crash and burn in what it tries to do. I guess I\'m just starting to wish folks did more with their skins than recoloration and submission. Oh, and by the way, you now have your answer: you can review almost anything if you\'re long-winded and as uninteresting as carpet lint in the kitty corner. Who\'s up for round two? Bot Support: NO New Sounds: NO Team Colors: NO - Dan \"ViperEye\" Tennant
unless they also have this file. It will also replace your menu screen music. Really the author describes it best: Quote: ----------------------------------- THIS MOD CHANGES YOUR DUEL MUSIC FOR MP TO THE MUSIC FOUND IN STAR WARS: EPISODE 2 ATTACK OF THE CLONES FIGHT BETWEEN OBI-WAN AND JANGO. DON\'T LET THE SIZE SCARE YOU, THIS MUSIC IS PRETTY GOOD, (IN MY OPINION) ----------------------------------- Personal Notes: Well, it does just what it says...changes the duel music to Jango\'s Escape. I already have a customized duel mp3, so this one was of little use to me, however it is an excellent score, and obviously very fitting to the JK2 world. Main thing is, on a pure server, you will still hear the default music unless this file is also on the server. You will hear this music when in your menu screen, before starting or joining a server. Bot Support: N/A Team Colors: N/A New Sounds: YES (Duel Music) ~LordWraith~
in MP and SP versions of the games. Most of the weapons have new skins, effects and sounds or are remodeled by other authors. You are able to have and change both hilts in each hand and you can have the blades appear as if they glow the same as they do in a duel. The authors have added a new map and sounds as well. New start up screen and other little touches make this feel more like its on game then a mod. Blood was added instead of the sparks, when you cut a limb off you see a red stump and not the yellowish one you would usually see. All of the night creatures and Blade fans will be happy to play this mod. I initially was very excited to review this mod and after playing it I was a little disappointed. There isn’t that much no going here just a bunch of things from other mods rolled into one. Most of the skins are not that good in quality taking the realism down a notch and in the SP the Jan skin is missing her torso. Other then my two statements above this mod was overall fun and refreshing. Nice work guys I can’t wait for an official release with better skins/models and more original works added. Maddog
for MP and SP game modes. My only complaint is why put Tron and Spiderman together they have no direct ties. Like I said about his last replacement mod, download this if you are getting bored of the original skins, which these replace. Maddog
comes with a bright variant and a highly-textured variant. Personally I prefer the textured versions. Also included are some new sounds which make the lightning sound a bit more...electrical, in my opinion. This is easily the best lightning mod I\'ve seen yet. I love the fact that it soesn\'t simply change the colors of your lightning, but rather changes its texturing a little without changing its nature. It\'s still lightning, just lightning of another kind. Very good work, and very complete. Great work! New Shapes: No New Textures: Yes New Sounds: Yes Astyanax
installation this mod is worth every millisecond of its download time. Like I have said numerous times it’s the little things that make me happy. I agree with the author that watching the video every time you play JK2 can be tedious and useless. There are a few programs that allow you to connect to a server with out the intro, if you don’t have one and don’t want to download one this is for you. Keep up the good work. Maddog
you and he added another pk3 which changes the duel music to a dance version of Duel Of The Fates. The blades are redesigned in hopes of creating the same look as the AOTC saber blades. As you can tell by the screenshots I took the saber core is much wider then the originals. The TCK versions are added for those of you who use mods. Overall this is a great update to an already great file. Gotta love the new sounds brings a breath of fresh air to my JK2 experience. Good Job keep up the good work. Maddog
windows. Personally, I wouldnt use this as I like the HUD the way it is, but for any SoF2 players crossing over to Jk2, you\'ll love this. - Spectrum
Kevin states that : [quote]This is essentially the same as version 2, except for some minor improvements (probably unnoticeable to almost everyone) to the thin sabers. [/quote] This is personally the saber mod i am currently using. Very good job, i think this stands out from most of the other saber modifications. -Crawlius
ChromeShadowtrooper! [b]Note:[/b] This will effect MP as well.
I was not sure at the beginning if I would be able to do it since my modeling skills are very basic , but he kept on begging and saying “Do it or do it not, there is no try!!” [/quote]A very nice saber hilt :D , Included is a short and long version for you playing pleasure. Check it out :cool:
hilt to be sure. Enjoy :D
:rock: and it is something new to the old rolling technique and saber whacking. This mod includes moves such as butterflys and cartwheel which look absolutely spectacular. Also includes some different saber moves which look awesome also. Some of this moves can be seen in the Star Wars Episode 1: Phantom Menace movie. Which I believe has really good fight scenes. This is a great mod and it is cool. :) ***Suggestions: None :rock: Final Say: The screen shots do not give this mod credit. Download it and give it a try.
lightning, cutscenes will be desann's voice), but the voice pack is all vader, and has a good effect. Only one like is out of place but i thought i'd put it in.[/quote]
free-for-alls much better because there can be no one just using stupid force powers. Also you don\'t have to disable all of them like you would normally this way you get the good ones.[/quote] Yes, this is a simple thing to do, half of you probably can do it yourself, BUT, some people don\'t know how to do this kind of stuff and find it useful (or simply too lazy to do it :D).
\'base\' folder. Start JK2 :) [b]Uninstall[/b]: Remove \'sp_lando.pk3\' from your \'base\' folder.
of the officers and such are BRIGHTER. Provided a BU in case you want to change em around some more. Easily. something. Not as much fun once the force gets going cause you cant choke em as long. Can't have your Gondar and eat it too.[/quote]
will have to change it manually using the 'sabercolor' console command.[/quote] lol, sorry the screenshot is a little grainy, but as you can see you can now use Desann's light saber hilt! If change your light saber colour to red, then well, you got it made! ;)
reduced by quite a bit! The taunt seems "funny" the first time you see it ;) but it's quite hilarious lol! And as the Author said, in SP it works perfectly!
but Raven did not put them as a move in Multi Player.. so here it is :)! Basically it replaces the 'roll' animations with the butterfly and cartwheel animations. A must download!
changes not just the main menu, but rather a lot of other things too. Rather than me trying to explain every one, it is probably better if I just paste in the list from the author’s readme, as I think that sums up the changes very well. [quote] Changes Main Menu screen to a rather cool looking view of space (lotsa stars hehe) Changes Main Menu & Dueling music to a cool techno Duel of the Fates Remix Changes the color of the lightsaber cursor Changes all lightsaber colors to more neon-looking colors Changes colors of the deployable sheilds Changes the darkness of the Trip Mines (not the laser, but the mine itself) Changes the default loading screen (to a similar pic as the main menu) Changes the color of the sheild (the spawn protection thing) Changes the color of the personal shield (when you get hit) Changes the Console to a neat star pic (also similar to the main menu) [/quote] I must say that I do really like the new main menu screen, the background of stars looks cool, and the black and white seems to compliment the red and blue of the lightsaber blades on the left side of the screen very well. Another noticeable change is to the lightsaber blades and colours. The colours are much brighter and as said above are more ‘neon’ looking. The core of the blades is also much thinner now, as opposed to the thicker white beam of the default blades. Another big change of course is the music, which is now a techno version of everyone’s favourite Duel of the Fates music from Episode 1. Personally this was not really to my taste, but that is just my personal preference. If you like techno or dance music, then I think you will definitely like this. :) All in all then an interesting and far ranging mix of different changes made to JK2 here although I think that the overall effect does look good. If you guys fancy a change from the default look and feel of JK2 both ingame and on the menu screen, then give this a download! ;) [b]***NOTE*** In response to the authors question (at the end of the readme) about taking screenshots without the console:[/b] What you need to do is bind the screenshot command to a key on your keyboard. So open the console and simply type /bind x screenshot and then press enter. X can be replaced with whatever key you fancy, then all you have to do is press that key to take screenshots. Don’t forget to remove the HUD though by typing /cgdraw2d 0 in the console. Once you want the HUD back, just put a 1 on the end instead of a 0 and press enter to change it back. You can also do the same thing to get rid of the gun in first person view, just type /cg_drawgun 0 to get rid of it and replace the 0 with a 1 to get the gun model back on again. I hope that helps! ~Nozyspy~
special. [/quote] Nothing special, indeed. All this changes is the cradle region for the HUD itself. Otherwise, he's got a long way to go. I posted a second picture here to show what the HUD will be aimed to look like (assuming he's going for faithful recreation,) and the first being what he's got now. - Averus Retruthan
in-game cut-scenes. I know some of you will probably be thinking of the saber blades in-game in Dark Forces 2, but I believe we already have a mod to get that look somewhere else on the site. This mod is to make the blades look like the ones in the Dark Forces 2 [b]cut-scenes[/b], that is to say, the live-action ones. Personally I have never played Dark Forces 2 (other than the demo) but I have seen many of the in-game cut-scenes and I believe from what I have seen that these saber blades are pretty accurate to what is in those cut-scenes. There’s not much more I can say besides that, overall I think they look accurate to what they are meant to represent, so if you guys are fans of Dark Forces 2, like the look of this mod or just want to try out a new saber blade mod, give this a download! :) ~Nozyspy~
the cursor to a halo-like sword. A simple mod, but fun for those who like this sort of thing. Give it a download if you like it!
sick of the music, this is the perfect thing for ya. You can simply go to the newly added menu to change the music to any of the songs in the SP part of the game, as well as adjust the music\'s volume there as well. Not a really complicated mod, no, but it is one that I actually like quite a bit. Now if there was one for JK3... (hint hint :p) Give it a download if you like this as much as I do. :D
characters in the game. The model choices are at best unlikely - and downright bizzare - given their intended usages. Kyle and Jan are now Tusken Raiders, Stormtroopers are replaced with a cybernetic heap of metal which gave me a desire to sing the Transformers theme song, and Imperials are now various versions of Coleman Trebor. Other models used include Sebulba, Darth Maul, Royal Guard, and various other assorted Star Wars entities. Still, as bizzare a selection as it is, it's certainly different. With this mod, you start with the saber and maxed out force powers, thus removing many of the more fun elements from a large chunk of the game. Being godlike isn't really all it's cracked up to be.... The lightsaber is replaced with the Tusken staff - probably not the smartest choice, considering it cuts straight through robots whereas given the laws of physics, it shouldn't even leave a dent. >_> There's also a couple of other mods, thrown in for good measure. A jetpack mod and a TCK Saber mod for dual saber and twin sabers. Naturally, with most modifications comes bugs. 1. Don't expect to use first person view. You can use it, but you'll get glitches, due to the Tusken Raider model having... extremities coming out of it's head. Pipes, to be precise. Not only are they annoying, but they block out a large chunk of your view. 2. One of the more noticable model errors is the untextured parts on the Coleman Trebor variants, however, various other model errors include buggy animations, small mesh glitches, and minor deformations. One example is Darth Maul's nose doing the talking. 3. The roll move has been changed to JKA's "Butterfly" move. Even though this change is intentional, it's problematic to gameplay. This move WILL get you killed. A lot. Also, since there's no roll, you can't dodge effectively, and you can't prevent yourself from taking fall damage. 4. Kill the troopers on the balcony (near the start of Kejim Post) as fast as you can. Jan can now jump up there, and if she does, she won't get on the lift when you blow the door open. Should she have the opportunity to make that jump, use Force Push to knock her back down and hope there's no fall damage. 5. This goes for any mod, or even if you aren't playing a mod at all - the exploding machine in the first level must always be shot at. Not slashed, shocked, or detonated, but shot at. Destroying it via any means other than the Bryar or E-11 will result in you being kicked from the game. It's an interesting model overwrite pack, on account of the fact that it's so different. Still, between the slight bugs and the tweaks which increase the gameplay difficulty, it's probably wise to avoid unless you're after a challenge as well as some model overwrites. ~ Kouen
about a saber blade constructed from holo-heads? Sure it has comedy value, but it kinda makes the game into a joke. Thankfully it only overwrites the yellow saber. (Hey, I liked the yellow saber! :( ) Well, see the screenshots for yourself. It\'s really nowhere near as funny as the author seems to think, though - rather than laugh and laugh and laugh, I merely chuckled for a minute. ~ Kouen
the menu. Tone meaning to a sepia, or other tone. Then there’s an invisible saber blade, and the replacing of the rocket projectile with a tree or X-wing. Then there’s the effects mod for the blaster pistol. It just seems…random. As I said, this just appears to be a collection of random mini-mods, with little thought, or effort put into it. For example, the author just took the map object models and renamed the md3.But, if it’s your cup of tea, then download it. ~Zach
saber blade is…flames at the tip! I found it funny, and moderately cool at the same time. And not only have flames been added, but a little white box is now in your saber’s core. Okay, maybe it’s a great big rectangle. Square, rectangle, koala in a tree eating leaves…it doesn’t really matter. If you like the look of this, make sure to give it a download. ~Zach
is also a light blue, with an interesting ripple-like hit effect. It doesn’t look bad. In fact, it looks pretty cool to me. Even though this is for Jedi Outcast, you should be able to use it in Jedi Academy, since the games are so similar. All I can say for this is to use your imagination when making things. But keep up the work Sithmaster555. :) ~Zach
but the only one that seems to fit is the blue stance, with the saber held pointing straight out. Yellow stance is close to the normal stance, except with this it looks like the holder is breathing deeply. Red stance holds the saber off to the side, horizontally. This mod also changes the running animation to not move the hand with the saber as much when running forward. A nice little mod, I say. But don't take my word for it. Give it a download and see for yourselves.
more \'aqua-ish\'. It isn\'t spectacular, but it is a change. I myself prefer the colors on the aforementioned items the way they were. But, to each his own. But it doesn\'t look bad! ~Zach
at all. Anyway, as I said, this is basically just a set of tweaks, so as such, here's the list: ------------------------------------------ - Menu music changes. Through The Canopy for SP, Battle of the Heroes for SP. The SP menu music isn't really noticable that much, since you'll probably be making a fast beeline for the load menu. Battle of the Heroes is a completely inappropriate choice for menu music. For a boss battle, maybe, but not for the menu. - "Gas" effect when you strike people with a lightsaber has been removed. This actually reduces the realism of the game somewhat. In the movies, this effect wasn't present because most of what got cut through was flesh and robes, but in the games, most of what gets cut is plastic. What happens when plastic melts? I dunno about anyone else, but when I was doing technology at school, melting plastic let off a steam effect. Either way, Raven's steam effect looks kinda bad, so this might be a welcome tweak for some of you. - Tavion no longer has the chin tatoo. See the author's Tavion reskin. That's what ya get here. - Force Powers sound like they do in the movies. I noticed little, if any, difference. - Sense, Rage, Absorb, Protect, and Jump have no sound. While I admit these sounds [i]were[/i] annoying (especially sense), it just feels so wrong using force powers and having no audible indication that you're doing it. It's also trickier to time certain things, such as low force jumps, and keeping protect up, since you can't here when they're going to run out. - Push, Pull, Protect, Rage and Absorb are invisible. I'm going to go out on a limb and say "no". Push and Pull, sure, their graphics are annoying, but the other three should not have been changed. Firstly, you can't really say that's how they were in the movies, as they were never used. Secondly, I foresee a MAJOR gameplay disadvantage for people using this. Considering the fact that when an opponent uses one of the above powers, you either have to change your tactics or die painfully, then not knowing that the opponent is using isn't authentic - it gives unfair advantages to those who use them. - Stance names have been changed to proper forms. Well, seeing as how the five lightsaber styles in the game are improvised, and not based on actual forms of saber combat, then these names are now inaccurate. Considering these names are never visible during the course of normal gameplay, then I'm going to ignore this one. - Medium and strong stance colors changed. The medium stance icon is green, strong is purple. I don't agree with the purple, maybe that fits for Desann's style, but the green is nice. - Weapons sound like the movies. The mod includes a sound pack made by another author. - Main menu title is now "classic gold". Basically, it's had a slight color overlay pasted on top. - Fire and blaster fire is enhanced and more vivid. Again, I noticed practically no difference. - Shield in multiplayer is gone. Both good and bad. Good because the shield is fugly. Bad because it makes it harder to gauge your opponent's shield and health values. - Sphere effect in CTY is gone. Again, good and bad. It makes the Ysalimiri holder less noticable, but bad because you can't always tell if they're force immune or not when you're in the middle of a battle. - Red/Blue changed to Imperial/Rebel. Just a name change. This didn't need changing - it was fine how it was. - Team Energize, Force Grip, Team Heal and Dark Rage renamed to Battle Meditation, Force Choke, Revitalize and Rage, respectively. Another one which was fine as it is. Team Energize has nothing to do with Battle Meditation, they're entirely different powers, and BM is a rare ability, so it doesn't make sense having it as a common power. Force Grip is actually called Force Grip, not Choke. Team Heal, well, Revitalize is a decent enough name for it, although it was better as Team Heal because then you'd just *know* it was Team Heal, rather than having to associate the name. Dark Rage, well, this one's entirely preference. I'm assuming it was named Dark Rage in the game to clarify that it was a darkside power, as JK2 didn't color code, but technically, since it's an original power for the game, it has no 'canon' name, so can be called what you like. Call it Focus Energy if you want, it's still the same thing. ;) ------------------------------------------ This is basically a collection of what I like to call 'sixty-second tweaks', since none of them would take more than a minute to do. This really should have been released as seperate pk3s for each component, since some components are good, but there are more negatives than positives, and you'd really be hard-pressed to notice any difference. There is one major error which was encountered. Levels which are preceded by a cutscene or movie of any kind will return an error, kicking you back to the main menu. This seems to occur at random, so you might get it, but at the same time you might not. Still, if you want to tweak your game, here's a little pack which will do just that. ~ Kouen
as the author just used the flame effect that would be used in a map. But the fireball was certainly cool. It used the rocket explosion as the effect when it hit something, and it did look like a fireball. So basically what this could use is a different effect for the flames than what was used. Wait, there\'s more. The author included several different colors of flame in this, so have fun with whatever color of flame you want. But remember, you can only have one of the pk3\'s in your base folder at once! ~Zach
So that means that it will work if you have the blade gun mod or not. Anyways, say hello to an automatic pistol. I can certainly say that it was fun to run around in single player blasting the crap out of the stormtroopers with Kyle\'s pistol. There really aren\'t any bugs, as this just increases the rate of fire for the bryar. So download, and have some fun beating the crap out of stormtroopers with an uberly fast pistol. ~Zach
it\'s self-explanatory. ~ Kouen
that bespin just [i]happens[/i] to be a gas planet. The closest thing to an ocean that it has is a molten metal core. To build on this, bespin doesn\'t exactly have the clearest skies. Gas planets generally don\'t have clear skies. Here\'s a suggestion. Make an island map set in the night time, and use this for the skybox. Last time I checked, bespin wasn\'t a watery planet with a clear sky. Also, since this overrides the default bespin skybox textures, all other maps that use those textures will be affected. ~Zach
flag. The transparency was really nice, and it added originality to it. The only thing that I didn\'t really like about it was the VX1 tag on it. The flag does not work in Jedi Academy. :( Next up is the saber blade. The author has replaced the core of the saber with a very interesting design. Upon further examination of the saber, there is a message going down the blade. Yep, you guessed it. VX1. Still, it\'s a pretty good idea. Finally, there is the trip mine reskin. I certainly liked this one the most. It turns the regular trip mine into a black mine with three red spots on it. (One for each corner.) I think that it looks a bit more stealthy than the default trip mine. But it might have just been me, but I thought that it also made the trip beam a little bit brighter than normal. But then again, I haven\'t played CTF for Jedi Outcast for ages. I tested this in both Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy, and only the saber worked for both. If this, or just a part of this, appeals to you, then give it a download! ~Zach
if you use the menu file, you cannot load any other mods...[/quote] and I presume he is referring to the cheatmenu1.0.pk3. But I have tried various combinations with putting the various .pk3s in my base folder but I cant seem to get it to work :S I couldn’t really tell if the NPC enhancement worked or not as I wasn’t able to select it or the Cheatmenu mod from the mods screen on the setup menu (the readme seems to suggest that I should be able to do that) :S However I did notice that the saber mod made things look much nicer :) I think that it added new spark effects when the sabers clash, and also it made the saber blades look thicker and nicer, because they were kinda thin looking before. I think it makes them look a little more like the Episode 3 style blades. All in all this mod is based on some cool ideas, and it does make the saber blades and saber clash effects look better. However the bugs could do with ironing out to make it really nice :) Good try all the same though mate. If you decide to make a v2 of this then I shall look forward to trying that out! :) If you like the look of the mod, give it a download. ;) ~Nozyspy~ ~~The author has sent in a troubleshooting guide. Here is the guide. [quote]Name: Manslayer101 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org File Description: This is a Troubleshooting guide for the Cheatmenuplus v1.0. Notes: This mod has been stopped as of a long time ago, if you would like me to continue it, work out the bugs, and create another version, just ask, email me at email@example.com. I will continue production if you wish. Now on to the Guide, find the question below you are looking for. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Q: Why write this? A: Well recently i've had someone email me and found out my mod was being displayed on jk2files noticing that even the administrator was having problems with the mod i decided to make a troubleshooting guide. Q: How do i install the mod? A: First off since this mod is a little buggy, DO NOT PUT THIS MOD IN YOUR BASE DIRECTORY, i can't stress this enough, if you put it there you have a risk of not loading anymore mods, and well....crash... So instead you need to put the files in a folder in your GameData folder like so: Ex: C:\Program Files\Lucasarts\Jk2 Jedi Outcast\GameData\Cheat Menu +\(files). Q: What does this mod work with? A: This mod only works with Jedi Outcast it WILL NOT WORK WITH JEDI ACADEMY, sadly enough. Q: I'm having problems....i don't see the Cheat menu? A: For now i have had major bugs when putting it in it's own place, instead look in the SETUP MENU\OPTIONS that is where you enable cheating and saberrealisticcombat, however remember you have to have cheating turned on before realistic combat will work. Q: Okay, i open the game, go to the menu, turn on the cheats, and start the game...but cheats arent working.... A: Well if this happens, just go to the ingame menu, it's there as well, just re-enable cheats and your cheating in no time :). Q: I cannot open any mods while this one is open, i have major problems if i do, why? A: Right now this mod is in beta stage, so no dice on other mods working after you enable this one, so if you want to open another one then close JK2 and reopen, sorry for this, but it couldn't be fixed, yet. Q: My problem isn't in the readme or in this guide, how will i get help? A: Email me asap, explain the problem in full description, and i will contact you as soon as i can I'm not so busy as a Game developer, that i cant help you ;). __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ [/quote]
fire while also changing the lightning shot sound to a burst of fire, making it sound a bit like a flamethrower. Working just fine, it\'s usable, and it\'s likable, but it\'s not really fiery Force lightning as you would expect. I like the flame sound element of this mod but the lightning changed to fire just doesn\'t look like true fire. I\'ve never seen fire that exists in long strands of what I think look like \"fire beads.\" Up close, each individual one does look like fire, but the image of fire itself needs to be larger for people to understand; at a distance, they all just look like orange blobs. Lightning works when it is in long strands, for that is its natural form, but when you shoot strings of beads of fire, it is too controlled and not chaotic enough for the personality of flame. The Force fire, subsequently, just doesn\'t look very good due to these problems. What\'s worse is that the sound doesn\'t fit the image at all. The sound sounds like one full breath of fire oozing forth, while the Force fire itself are these silly little beads of orange strung together like lightning. Perhaps better advice to anyone is that just because something is orange doesn\'t mean it\'s fire. None of this really comes as a shock, I\'m sure, seeing how we\'ve had plenty of previous attempts to change Force lightning to fire. Some of them looked and sounded like fire, but painfully took down my precious framerate. Fortunately, the problems associated with this mini-mod actually result in one advantage, at least for people like me whose computers are just \"okay\": my framerate was just fine and dandy using \"Force Fire.\" That\'s a welcome advantage if you\'re willing to hear fire while shooting stringy orange beads. —Ra-Kom
Kyle with Lando, complete with sounds. I debated uploading this, since the JK3 version we just had should work, but I figured why not? It\'ll be easier for folks to find this way. So up it goes! Enjoy. ~Inyri
please! Anywayy…This is a simple, yet very good looking skin. Its just a reborn, with chainmail, and a tabard. But it looks very cool. Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best ;) That’s not it though…it also comes with…. A sword! A proper medieval looking two-handed sword. I love this skin and sword, its just the kinda thing I’ve always wanted, as I love medieval type stuff. Just a shame for me its only for JK2 :/ The only thing I didn’t like about this, was its face, looked like it had been painted with the English flag or something, and it looks a bit strange :S Would have looked better with just the default face, with maybe a scar on it or something. Also, it appeared to have team skins, but they weren’t any different from the regular, the icon could also be better, but oh well. On the good side though, it has bot support! So if you spawn enough of them, you can have a big battle between lots of Knights :) I love this skin/sword, and I really do hope you make a JKA version of this m8. Good Job! New Sounds: No Bot Support: Yes Team Support: Yes ~Nozyspy~ *edit* oohhh sorry, i see what you meant about the face now, it only LOOKS like its been painted red and white, it hasnt really, its just that the skin colour looks red against the lighter bits around it. My mistake sorry :/
lightning? this is for you elros
changed, but it didn\'t change for me. I\'m not sure if it was just my issue or that he didn\'t pack it. either way, the color change is kinda cool. Download it and take a look! -Lizardking
flags for each clan match. Where one flag could have the tag of one clan on it and the other could ... yeah. Anyway, that\'s what this is ... a clan CTF flag mod. All that\'s changed on the flags is there\'s now a clan tag on them. ~AmosMagee
now got a red glow instead of a blue one. Doesn't suit me personally but its a change from whatit usually is. The console background has also been tweaked, now its rather plain. The author says this is because sometimes the console can be hard to read. Never had that problem myself but I can see why this could help some people. The other things that have changed are the 2 small HUD icons on your screen. On the left, there's now a 'square' of lighning surrounding your health meter. To be honest it doesnt really look right, especially with a black background to it. The same applies to the right hand side ammo/lightsaber meter. As for the lightsaber/ammo meter, well that's changed slightly more than the left one. Ammo will now be shown in read, but my favourite bit is the lightsaber one. It will now actually tell you what style you have on, represented by a word and not just a colour. May not be necessary for all people but will help colour blind people. The only thing left is the force power bar and the weapons bar (Where it shows you the weapons you have) this now ahs a red glow. Again, I'm not to fond of red glows and lightning, but Its a matter of opinion. And of course, it doesnt low FPS or anything like that :) ~Szico VII~
but if you\'re sick of the old lightning sound and want somthing fresh, go ahead and give it a try. -Shahadi
attack each other. You are their enemy and they\'re all gonna come after you. ;) It\'s too bad though that the author didn\'t come up with more creative names for his bots. ;) ~AmosMagee
and a battle droid blaster. How much of this is AnKura\'s work? Um, I have no idea. None? Seems to me all he did was put all of these pieces together. Which I suppose is a conveinent little package. In any case, here are the skins in order of appearance in the screenshots (not including the first two screenshots sent in from the author): arc arc2 arc3 default clonecpt1 pilot clonelt clonept2 clonescout_fett clonesgt default_sniperclone default pilot default default_security default_command default_geonosis And there ya have it! Bot Support: Yes Team Colors: Yes New Sounds: Yes (well, not really) ~AmosMagee
that the author could change to make this a better mod. For instance, adding some new sounds. I haven\'t any suggestions, but yeah. And then, there\'s like the ball of blue light at the fingertips ... that should totally be changed to match the fire effects. But anyway, nice job for a fun little mod. :) ~AmosMagee
occasionally a saber mod comes along that has one or two modifications that I like. And with this mod, Saber X, you may find something that appeals to you. It\'s kind of a hodgepodge mod. All of the sabers seem to have a different width, glow or color. Personally, I like the first one that replaces the original blue saber. It\'s a softer blue with more of a glow. The second one there seems to have a thinner core and replaces the purple/pink/magenta saber. Oddly enough, the third one there that looks ... well, I was going to say white, but to me it looks beige ... replaces the red saber. The stereotypical girl might like the replacement for the orange saber - it\'s a bright pink. The one that used to be yellow (the fifth saber there) is now like, a purple/pink/magenta color and is very wide with a lot of glow. And the last saber there is supposed to be green, but is now yellowish gold, with an interesting texture. Do I like this mod? No. I like one saber in it. And even then, I only like it for the color. However, this is a saber mod that has a nice variety of colors, styles, textures, etc. So it might have something you want. :) ~AmosMagee Ps. Something I realized AFTER I wrote my review is that this mod has something else about it that\'s very cool. I had to go back in and test it again to see it. The color of your saber changes color as you swing it! So when you swing the green (um, yellowish gold) one, the color goes blue. So ... yeah.
game server using RCON via UDP every few seconds (uses negligable bandwidth). It has a list of partial name matches that if it finds it can auto-kick or auto-ban with custom messages. You could use it to kick offensive names or keep a particular clan tag banned too if desired.\" New Features: -Ignores color codes so you don\'t need to worry about colors when specifying matches. -Better error handling so less likely to crash if game server goes down. -Checks via secondary methods not just via an rcon status output, giving it the ability to capture exploiters using long normal names in front of their exploit names that would not usually show in rcon status. (Please note as a result, this tool is now only compatible with mods built upon the Vulcanus admin mod or Jedi Academy mod.) \"For best use, you should allow name changes to occur unhindered. e.g. Not limit to one a minute etc. Although this will make you open to name change flooding (which can lag a server) it will help circumvent an additional rare exploit. This is totally your option of course. \" Quotes From ~[NT]~WabbidWabbit.[/quote] This small little release here is just to fix a few bugs that were found in the last version. Sometimes Temple Guardian would hang if blank status lines were returned from the server, but that\'s been fixed. Also bots seemed to be a problem, and that\'s no longer an issue. Now TG will also wait for the server to come back up after being shut down before it\'ll start again, so it won\'t hang. So if you didn\'t download or don\'t want to download the new version of JA mod, then Temple Guardian would be the way to go to avoid those \"hackers\" who would take control of servers. ~AmosMagee

Turquoise The white saber is pretty cool, and probably the best one in the pack. ~Wolf
the tripmine version has much thicker. The result? Hippy mines with a beam so obvious you\'d have to be George Bush to not see and recognise them. It\'s a color modified skin, basically, all you need to do it load up a Channel Mixer or Color Balancer et voila, any color of the spectrum you want. -WadeV1589-
playing against bots, and since I was such a n00b, the bots were definitely challenging enough. Now, not so much. Some of you guys still play JK2 with bots probably because you\'re on dial-up. So here\'s a mod made just for you guys! :D Darkseide modified several of the original botfiles including Chiss, Gran, Imperial, Reelo - among many others. They all have more taunts and bot attachments and are a bit more challenging. I played for a bit with these new and improved bots and they put up quite a fight. :) If you play with bots often, this might be worth checking out. Let us know how much of a difference you see. :) ~AmosMagee
without having to exit the game at all. It\'s very easy to use, all you need to do is memorize the hotkeys and you can play, pause, move onto the next track, etc. Personally, I don\'t like Winamp 3.whatever, so I use 2.81. This program claims to work for all versions of Winamp. At the very least, I can tell ya it works for 2.81. :D So like, if you need a program to control your Winamp while playing JK2 or JA, this is a good one to get. This is an exe, but it\'s been scanned for virii, of which I found none. :) Why this is version 2 and I can\'t find the first version, I\'ll never know. There was one little bug I encountered, which had to do with the interface. If you use your mouse to click on volume - or volume +, they kinda are backwards. But using the hotkeys, they work correctly. Other than that, I found no problems with this program. Great work! ~AmosMagee
after I did a comparison, I did notice a few things. In the standard animation, the character holds the Briar with just one hand. With this mod, the character uses both hands to hold the gun, which would make more sense, \'cause you\'d get better control over the weapon, right? Sure, why not! Also, the player will now hold the gun up-right, as if always aiming, always ready to fire at something. Maybe I missed it, but the screen also shakes a bit when the alternate fire is used at full power. In my opinion, I really don\'t see the need for this type of mod. Being in the heat of battle, I doubt I\'d be thinking about how cool I looked when shooting my Briar pistol. I\'d be more worried about just hitting my target. :) And besides, not many people use the Briar anyways. I would pretty much only use the weapon if I didn\'t have any other ammo for other weapons, or if I simply didn\'t have any weapons at the time. But hey, if you\'re a stickler for perfect animations, then by all means, this animation corrects the defaults. The default animation looks like me running around my back yard with a Super Soaker, back in the old days. ;) The new animation looks how somebody who is trained with weapons should look. So go ahead and download this, and see what it does for you. ~Lord Griever~
suited to drop in the JKA base directory, but fans of JK2 can appreciate this as well. Also, he added new sounds, and a variation of the blue saber (from Knights of the Old Republic) Great job! - Chrono Here's my previous review on it: [quote] The file is just like the title. This is an Episode II blade modification. And a darn good one too. I'm keeping this one installed, despite the author's lack of confidence. ^_^ It turns all the lightsaber glows into glows closer to that of Episode II. I've seen pretty much every blade modification out there, and by far this is my favorite. Hopefully TimK decides to do more for the community, especially when JKA finally hits the shelves. [/quote]
modification, which basically is completely correct! Excited yet? Well it gets better! LoL alright, so we’ve seen a hundred and one moves modifications sent in and submitted. So you’re asking yourself “Why should I download this, I bet it’s the same old stuff I’ve seen before.” To some extent that’s correct, but there are some nice new changes. First let’s take a look at what isn’t new to you if you’ve tried a few moves modifications. First off the side flips are aerials, which I’ve always thought was cool. (For those who don’t know, and aerial is a flip to the side where you kinda do a cartwheel in the air…sorta :P)The back roll is the butterfly roll, always a flashy addition to any moves mod. Now for some new and interesting things. First of the back flip animation has been changed into a different sort of back layout flip twist deal. Really cool, save the way the body contorts the legs near the end of the animation. It’s really actually quite forgivable given the flip it self is sweet. Here’s something, probably the most obvious part of the moves mod. The saber stances and how they have been modified. First, blue has been altered to a sort of ready stance where the saber is being held in front of and slightly over the top of the players head. The animation moves slightly so that the stance isn’t stagnant. On the contrary it’s a fluid back and forth motion, the only thing that bothers me with this is its reminiscence to robotic like motions. Any who, that’s just a little nitpicking :D Yellow stance holds the saber close to the characters body, and really if the stance has been changed you can’t tell too much. Red is probably the most drastic of changes. The saber is held out semi perpendicular to the ground, kinda looks like a halted stabbing motion. This sounds like it would be really awkward, but it’s actually very interesting from some of the moves modifications I’ve run into.(some of which I wish I really hadn’t run into :P) This moves modification is packed with some sweet and stylish techniques for all you mini-mod enthusiasts, with just enough new in it to make it a worthwhile download. N3G1@, this is awesome :) Rock on -=Sai-Wan=-
Vegas troopers, very cool pack! First we have the hilts, which glow a pretty cool glow, either Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, Red, and a default glow. Then we have a shadow trooper with a cooler black suit on, and it does not stop there! The Red version is really cool, looks like a computer with circuits and stuff :) Nice touch, then the blue model looks about the same, but with blue circuits :) Then the Storm trooper, is very similar to the shadow trooper, but still great job at making a plain stormy into something awesome, then the red model of this skin is again very similar to the last model but a storm trooper, the blue.. same thing. The Swamp Trooper is AGAIN very similar to the last two, but the red version instead has red speckles all over him, and the same with the blue, very good use of shaders for these mods! I will give this mod an 8/10 Very nice, I like the new saber hilts :) but next time try to make the skins allitle different from each other instead off all the same things, great job, keep it up! New Sounds-No Team-Colors-Yes Bot Support-Yes ~ReVan~
version, and also comes with some new saber which the only substantial difference is the core, which is turned to a similar color of the glow. Then he also replaces the console background with the all too famous Matrix Code that floats around, very neat ;) . Then he also adds a new loading bar for when you load up a map or join a server with a cool little green bar. Next we have some new saber hilt effect that makes it glow either Blue Red or Green, very nice effect. Then we have the skins, The Mist Kyle itself is a piece of Art, changed the old boring Kyle into something with nice red wings on his back! Then we have a new Jan, which is of poor detail, she now has a short Shirt and low pants on, and then she has a open part so you can see some well... Cleavage... Overall nice mod... I will not be keeping this in my base folder however, but still a good attempt, 6/10! New Sounds-Yes Team Colors-Yes Bot Support-Yes ~ReVan~
files Revan, the author of this file submission brings to us. The game itself has some seriously beautiful art that came in box and out, advertising the game and so on. The art mentioned has been put to some very good use, as Revan has gone ahead and added it to the Main Menu Screen. What's more, it manages to capture the essence of the Knights of the old Republic theme. With the characters collaged about across the screen, this is one main menu screen that I'll be hangin onto for personal use :D One thing to add however, the screen kinda stretches a tad, but it's definately forgivable given the quality of the screen itself. The second part of the impressive three file submission are some different saber colors. Perhaps the more subtle of the modifications included here would be the changes made to the saber colors. As mentioned, they are certainly subtle, not a very big change from the normal saber colors but a welcome addition. The red colored saber imho is the color that shows the most difference from the normal color selection and the modification. The colors themselves are a nice change, not particularly vibrant, but if the author was looking to mimic the colors of the sabers found in the KOTOR game itself, he managed to do it nicely. Maybe my favorite part of this pack,(though that's up for a tough debate with the awesome Main menu screen XD) would have to be the Lightening modification. Gone are the bright blue's of the surging electrical charge seen when the darkside power is used. Now, they've been replaced with a whitened core and fainter outer glow. This change looks very much like the KOTOR lightening itself, the only thing is I've found when using this, is that when Lightening is used at it's maximum level, it looks a little more like a flood of icy beams shooting out. THat's not altogether a bad thing, it's different and it looks pretty smooth. I like these files, and personally I'll be keeping them. If you're looking to get a more "Knights of the old Republic" feel out of your Copy of Jedi outcast, well this is certainly a great place to start. With any luck we'll be seeing some quality skins from characters found in the game comming soon. In any case these files are a worthwhile download. Keep it up Revan, you've done Knights of the old Republic justice thus far. *hopes for a full KOTOR conversion* ;D Rock on -=Sai-Wan=-
set...I am quessing this was intentional? At any rate, the author says it best in this case. Quote: ------------------------------ This skin uses existing textures from the game to replace Kyle\'s single and multiplayer outfit with one that has a Corellian/Mission Impossible 2 special agent sort of feel to it, but still retains the feel of being Kyle\'s outfit. The result is a .pk3 file that is small in size (2 KB) and should not slow down the frame rate. This mod also replaces your default Kyle in multiplayer. Team colors for MP are included, which are the same as the red and blue single player versions. ------------------------------ Personal Notes: While I don\'t play the SP mode of the game any more, and never use kyle, this was none the less an interesting alternative to the standard and quite boring \"brown outfit\" version of Kyle. Nice work Patrick, always good to see a fellow helping his mates out. Bot Support: YES/NO (Kyle still?) Team Colors: YES/NO (Kyle still?) New Sounds: YES/NO (Kyle still or reborn?) ~LordWraith~
Simple and effective does what it says. Download if you are looking for a white saber blade. Maddog
hits), so you get max blood throughout the game, as long as you use the saber. Personally I think this is a little off for the \"reality\" of the star wars world. All of the weapons used other than explosive weapons are energy weapons! They dont create blood. Otherwise, for anyone who likes seeing a bunch of blood splatter everywhere... This mod is for you - Spectrum
Avengers and the Imperial Troopers are replaced with Leet. If you like Counter Strike I suggest you download this replacement mod, and if you don’t give this a try it brings a breathe of fresh air to the JK2 experience. In the read me file the author gives the author of the original skins credit for his work. Maddog
is captured have not been replaced. Nice idea, but this is little more than a copy-paste job. I am glad, however, that this is kind of something new for people to download. Overall not bad, but I\'d like to see somethign a bit more creative. Astyanax
:) Personally, I prefer one color lightning, but this is an interesting choice for those who want something a little different. Good job, as always, Lord Osiris. :) ~AmosMagee
prefer the basic blue lightning, but this is not a bad replacement at all. Astyanax
stances for the most part to be very cool. The red stance is unfortunately that awkward over-the-head saber stance common to some of the other mods, but the rest of the changes were excellent. The back roll is more of a back flip, and the side-roll is a bit more of a cartwheel. While standing idle, the model moves as if he is breathing, which I found to be a VERY refreshing change. I found none of the modifications to affect my game negatively at all, and since this is strictly a client-side mod, no one else will be able to see the adjustments in your behavior without installing it as well. This is one of the few mods that I think I\'ll be keeping, because in spite of that over-the-head red stance, everything else is a welcome improvement. Astyanax
found the blade to be a tad thinner than the standard ones, with a slightly sharper point. Colors are a bit darker and more vibrant; for example, the orange blade looks more like real orange. The gradient is unfortunately ever-so-slightly squarish, but this is not noticeable for most of the colors. There are no sound updates, so expect to hear the standard JK2 sounds if you use this mod. Nice work! Astyanax
in yellow,red,green, and purple stance - speed increase in green special attack - new rolls: left,right and back roll animations - Astyanax
drop the PK3 you want. - Astyanax
a wonderful game.
obscene comments regarding filefront etc. have been banned. Sorry, but use your head and email us about the download not working instead of lowering yourself to a level far beyond acceptable. - Pro-Filer I have also reset the downloads and user votes. StarWars has done it again! This time with a few MODs packed in to one Zip file. If I were him i would have named it StarWar's Saber Oack or something. Anyway, very nice detail on all 3 MODs: Flame Sabers, Perfect Sabers Ep2, and Enlarged Sabers. My favorite is the Perfect Sabers Ep2, maybe that is why the author named his saber pack that. Very nice detail on the Ep2 Perfect Sabers, they really do look like the ones from the movie. The Flame Sabers MOD makes the cores of the sabers look lke rising flames, very cool! And the Enlarged Sabers MOD makes the cores of the sabers really fat, not my cup of tea, but i guess it is for some of you. Yet again another great saber MOD by StarWars. Keep em coming man!
way to choose a level. You can even toggle between multiplayer and single player levels. I also set it up so it tells you what you are selecting. You might find this a complete waste of time, but I felt like submitting it anyway :D[/quote] Keep sending those files in! -Crawlius
author says [quote]But I also wanted the sabers to look reasonably movie-ish[/quote] I was under the assumption that the lightsabers in the movies are way thicker than the original JK2 ones. Oh well, that's just my opinion. Nice job by kcbrown here, I hope too see these lightsabers updated with maybe some different saber colors. Very good job otherwise, though. -MasterJediZach
really can\'t think of anything to change for this, except maybe I would make the glow of the saber itself thinner. But other than that, Great Job! BTW this mod also supports the TCK Mod.
colours: *Windu\'s Purple Blade* -same colour as his AOTC movie saber *Light Blue Blade* -as Luke\'s in \"A New Hope\"[/quote] To tell you the truth I never realized that the JK2 sabers looked different from the movies! But when I saw these sabers in-game... wow they look so much better! Alot more \'cleaner\' looking and the rounded edge compared to the rather sharp edge is an improvement! The blue and purple sabers have their own pk3\'s so if you only want those and not the rest then it\'s up to you :)
redrew the skull with some slight changes to make it easier to aim with.[/quote] The skull still looks cool :D!
it in the screenshot, in the game it's smaller and A LOT clearer than what you see in the screenshot ;))
pseudo-3d, not too fat not too thin,true to the spirit of AOTC and the tips are nicely curved...There's an extra pk3 file that changes the blue blade into a lighter blue one like in Ep4...just drop it in your Gamedata/Base folder.The color mod works with every other blade mod as well...[/quote] Very cool saber mod :D
multiplayer by default *Saber fights in multiplayer more like single-player *Saber-locks outside of duels in multiplayer *More than 2 people can be in a saber lock together *The moves that have been altered: -roll forward, left, or right: cartwheel -roll backward: butterfly -jump: force jump style instead of pansy normal one -fast saber style: replaced with one-handed (Tavion) style -strong saber style: replaced with one-handed (Desann) style -backstab: all saber styles now do backstab instead of swing back -walk: walks with saber raised, for effect while dueling -getup: instead of struggling off of the ground, you "force" getup[/quote]Great mod compilation. Two of the coolest Mods combined. :cool:
about it. The weapon is far underneath you and it might look a little weird because the probe droid is fairly taller than a normal player ;)
hilt itself is nicely made with TC logo and everything. Awesome hilt :D *note* need the author to resubit your user info please , where wasnt a readme included- thanks -ts*
and saves them -When you kill someone it reports it like this "Person, you are the (# of kills) person i have killed" -Gamespy/QTracker and any other server getter support. -2 Chat Commands !time - sends current time to the chat !kills - sends the amount of kills you have total. [/quote]
effect! -Spik[/quote]Changes the blue saber to a spiraled effect. bit hard to see but its :cool:
weapons that use the \"WhiteGlow\" spark shader to use the new \"blood\" shader. Desann originally modified the \"black_smoke\" graphic, but this caused all smoke effects to be red. StrWrsXprt went back and renamed Desann\'s blood effect to \"blood_smoke\" and changed the weapons that used the \"black_smoke\" graphic to use the new one.[/quote] Cool mod for sure. If ya into blood with jk2 :D then this is the perfect mod for you :cool:
right![/quote]This is a saber hilt turned to stone :D.
saber can now be activated without using cheats in multiplayer, just type \"thedestroyer\" into the console at any time, or bind it to a key - ex. \"bind z thedestroyer\", Z being the key you want to use to activate the dual blade. *Dismemberment is now enabled in multiplayer (with the v1.04 code) to enable, type: g_dismember 100 cg_dismember 100 into the console (must be enabled on server to work) (this only needs to be set once) *The moves that have been altered- -roll forward, left, or right: cartwheel -roll backward: butterfly -jump: force jump style instead of pansy normal one -fast saber style: replaced with one-handed (Tavion) style -strong saber style: replaced with one-handed (Desann) style -backstab: all saber styles now do backstab instead of swing back -walk: now walks with saber raised, for effect while dueling -getup: instead of struggling off of the ground, you \"force\" getup[/quote]
Sword from FFX), Ninja Sword (From Metal Gear Solid), a Shadow Sword that i just made up, and an Axe. This mod includes sword sounds too. This mod is ment for people who dont like lightsabers that much, and just play the game for the sword fighting (like me), or if u just like swords.[/quote]

Both have the clan's name on it. Nothing else to really mention, so signing off. - Averus Retruthan
person\'s view of the game. This file is the normal HUD stripped of all unnecessary components. No borders, no beams, no static effects, and definitely no sounds. I prefer this over the cg_hudfiles 0 command because it\'s easier to notice key information at a glance.[/quote] That\'ll do. Does what it says on the tin, so make your call. - Averus Retruthan
amusing :D It\'s kinda hilarious to be this little bug thing on the floor. Though this comes at a price: - Can\'t attack using saber, can only throw. - Can\'t backflip/frontflip. - Can\'t roll. - Weapons Float This is because the models don\'t contain this kind of animation support and so they can\'t do those things.
would now cover all SP maps, as well as the MP, and now, thou canst now ferry him to your own skyboxes with the .PSD image supplied, so his noodly divinity shalt know no end. Now, if thou willst excuse me, I have pirate attire to acquire. - Averus Retruthan

make the flags look more like they have been through a few battles, with some tears and scorching. Overall they look cool, though my only complaint is that the colours of the flags do not match the colours of the team bases ingame. The Imperial flag should be red and the Rebel flag blue, but these are the other way around. To be honest, I don't know why they made the Imperial team colour red and the Rebels blue when they made the game, since red is more of a Rebel colour, and blue more of an Imperial colour. I guess you could say that the colours of these flags are more in tune with each team, but it is a little distracting when your teams flag is not the same colour as your team. But that's just my opinion! Give this a download if you fancy using some new CTF flags! :) ~Nozyspy~
gray. Maybe it's just me, but I'm not convinced it's really brushed metal. Just seems like a gray ring with some Aurabesh text...*looks on Wookieepedia* Wonder what it says...oh...armor and health...crap, I've been tainted =_o;; Well, like I said, needs a little more shine before I can believe it's metal, and even then, it looks sorta out of place with the rest of the hud. If you guys like it, go ahead and fetch it. Baienow. - Averus Retruthan
modifications around anymore these days, do you? Everything is about Skins, Maps, and Models! Geez! >_> As all of you can see, the author did a basic recoloring of the HUD from silverish-gray to a black/charcoal color. I'm going to admit that in most cases, a simple recolor wouldn't really be much in my eyes. Although, I actually like this HUD. I can definitely picture myself using it every once in a while. That might just be me though... The slight modifications are the obvious reshaping of the HUD as a whole. You'll notice these modifications in the screenshots and in the game. Other than those major changes, I didn't really see anything else that was worth reviewing. I saw no bugs or glitches with the HUD at all, which is always good. Although, I would highly recommend adding some more creative features to the HUD. That's definitely make it appeal to more people if you ask me. Overall, this is a pretty good HUD modification. As I said, some more creativity added to the HUD would make it much better. Although, that really depends on if you plan to make a V2 of this or not. Either way, you did a pretty good job! This is definitely worth a download if you're getting bored of using the same old default HUD! ~Syyrax
actually...the new texture has a transparent background, so you don't have to worry about the (already small enough) hud getting in the way any more. The basic shape is still a circle, but with grass (or something similar) coming off of them. They're colored completely black. The shield meter consists of two circles that change color from green to red as they deplete, and the health uses a single red bar in the same way. The ammo and force are unchanged as far as I can tell. To be honest, part of me liked this. Maybe you will too - check out the screenshot. ~Dretzel
such that the mod introduces, but this is the first time I personally have seen a new menu mod made for the base JK2 game. This is a fairly small mod, but it does add quite a few new things that can be tweaked ingame. When I say ingame, I mean once you have actually gone [i]ingame[/i] since that is the only place this new menu is available from. You cannot access it through the main menu when you first start the game, which is a little confusing. Anyway, the new options that can be tweaked from this menu include changing the style of the crosshair, adding an FPS counter and a clock and also a lagometer display. There is also an option for optimizing your connection to the server you are on. Overall I think this is a great idea for a mod, and I would like to see more like this, although I do think it would be good id this menu was also available from the main menu screen when you start up JK2. If you guys want some more options to tweak ingame, then give this a download! :) ~Nozyspy~
Australian community of JK2 something to use, so he gave the CTF flags a total makeover. To be honest, there hasn't been a lot of flag modifications lately, and I've always wondered why. Hmm, oh well. One of the major changes that can seen on this flag is, well, the Australian flag. So, for those of you Australians around these here parts that have been dying to have something for the community, here's your chance! One of the other major things that you'll notice is the new and not-to-shabby transparency addition. This is the one change that gives the whole flag some flavor if you ask me. I can imagine bunny hopping around a CTF map, and looking to my side and seeing that flag just floating up and down, while telling me to come capture it... Ahh, the memories of Capture the flag. All in all, this is a pretty great makeover for the CTF flag. Although, not all of you are Australian, so It might not be to your liking. Nevertheless, I'm going to keep it in my base. For those of you who want a different style of the CTF flag, this is definitely for you! ~Syyrax
figure) from 2005. I\'m not sure if this is some special significance, or if the author just thought the logo looked cool, but either way I\'ll agree that they look cool. So if you\'re looking for a new flag look, give these a try and see if they suit your fancy. ~Inyri
[url=\"http://jediknight2.filefront.com/file/Jedi_Outcast_Revamped;69328\"]old review[/url]. And here\'s the change log. [quote]The Bryar Pistol is replaced with the DL-44 pistol (Han\'s Gun). (Thanks Pheonix) - The background of the hud is slightly see-through. - Force powers are now colored according to their alignment. - The menu music in Multiplayer is replaced with a compilation of mine \'Epic\'. - The Bryar Pistol (Now DL-44) shot color is red. - The duel music (Tavion/Saber Challenge) is now an edit of \'Battle of the Heroes\'. - The following duel maps can now be played in Holocron, Jedi Master, FFA, and Team FFA: Ceremonial Hall Bespin Air Vanes Battleground Jedi - [/quote] ~Zach
Bespin... changes the feel to the map. Also, the music has been changed to John Williams - Across the Stars from episode 2. It\'s amazing how somthing so simple, can change the feel to an old and well liked map, making it in my opinion, even better. -Lizardking
choices. The Destruction Ray emits a huge amount of red lightning when used. Ice Storm and Raging Flame are rather self-explanatory. There’s not all that much to this mod, but if you use lightning and are tired of the usual animation, one of these 3 may please you. But otherwise, meh, nothing all that special about this. The new animations are nice, but that’s about all. ~Lord Griever~
flaw I noticed, the animation doesn\'t take affect until after you shoot, then it makes the arm go a little higher and straight instead of lower and bent, this makes him also look sort of something like Superman when he flies :P. But however it does make it look sort of something like Han Solo when you look at the animation from the front of the model. This little mod is a pretty cool little mod for those who like the way Han Solo shto in that famous little poster from Episode 4, if you are one of these people, then get this mod! I will not be keeping this little mod however, I really don\'t like it. It was a good atempt overall, great understanding of the animation process, you know? But overall good job, 7/10 Keep it up! ~ReVan~
dot in the center and one without. So if you\'re in the [JoR] clan, you should probably download this, since it\'s, like, official and stuff. Or if you just really like swirly, white crosshairs. I think it looks good and I don\'t really have any suggestions. Oh, except maybe, you should offer it in other colors? Or maybe do a larger pack next time of different crosshairs. At any rate, good job. ~AmosMagee
your saber, or other certain weapons (like a blaster shot). I noticed small mists of blood and blood droplets showered the floor and wall of the wounded. (Screens are a little dark, but you get the idea.) I don\'t use sword mods, though, I will probably be keeping this blood mod. I know there are other mods out there, but I never really tested one before, and I like it for some reason. So if you\'ve never thought of trying a blood mod before, why not now? You just might like it too. :) ~AmosMagee
options. There is one file in here that will be very use full for all of you who use sword mods, the mod removes the yellow saber blade so it doesn’t show through the sword. There is plenty more I didn’t list here check out the readme for full details. This is a good update, the author is trying to please all of those who download this file. My only real complaint was that the saber stances could be a little different or cooler. (The red one likes kind of weird when you’re standing still) Overall a very good update can’t wait to se more of your work. Maddog Below is my review of the original file: [quote] Paradox1 brings us his mod entitled Dynamic Stance. This mod is very simple but does some very interesting things and makes the saber stances and some moves different. With the new versions of the saber stances my least favorite is red because he looks like he is typing into something. The yellow is my favorite he looks like he wants to take on the world and isn’t afraid of anything, the blue is ok as well. The forward roll was replaced with a very cool forward flip. This mod also replaces the saber blocking bullets with a dodge animation, which is very reminiscent of bullet time but not as slow. The animations are changed for changing between weapons and you now walk with your hands behind your back. The only known bugs are if this is used with a mod that allows the use of two sabers the blue stance is a bit dodgy as the author says. All you omni users will see a better barf emote now. This in my opinion is a very cool mode reminiscent of the Saberist mod with regards to changing the saber stance but this does much more. All I can say is download this now if you want to change these things. I am going to use this mod, this will make for some cool screenshots as well. Maddog[/quote]

bubbles and the splash screens. However, look a little closer and you will notice that this also changes some of the ingame effects too. The most noticeable of the effects changes is the saber blade, which now has a ‘split in two’ look that is very reminiscent of the Jedi Knight ‘lightsaber’ logo, you know, the one on the front of your JK2 box. I am presuming this is where the idea came from, and personally I think it looks really cool, a nice way to integrate the Jedi Knight logo into the actual game. The saber trails have also been changed to look like flames and also among the changes are the bubbles that surround the player when they spawn, which now use a much better texture and don’t look like nondescript blobs anymore. ;) The most major change to the game however, is that many of the maps skyboxes have now been replaced by a starry night sky. This is the same for Bespin and Yavin maps alike, as an example. Whilst some people wont like the fact that this mod makes such a drastic change to the game in this way, it does fit in with the theme of the name of the mod – ‘night mod’. Personally, the maps don’t actually look that bad with a night sky instead of their default one, however I do think that this should have been made an optional feature. Anyway, back to the main subject of the mod, which are the game menus. As I said at the start, the menus now have an orangy theme with a wavy style background. The lightsaber cursor has also been changed, having the ‘wavy’ effect also applied to it, which looks a little weird, but also kinda cool. Lastly there are also new chat bubbles, which use one of the textures from the Yavin Trials singleplayer map, you know, the ones with the symbols on where you have to match the ones on the walls with the ones on the floor using your force powers. Anyway, all in all a cool mod here, I especially liked the new saber blades. I do think though that the night skyboxes should have been an optional feature, since some people wont like such a drastic change. As for improvements, I think it would be cool to add some new sound effects, like for when you click on things and such. That is, if you decide to make a v2 of this mod. Overall though good work here, I look forward to seeing more of your work! ~Nozyspy~
stainz' is, and partly because any text in the background images tends to bug me... There's really nothing more to say about it that the screenshot doesn't say. Give it a download if you like it.
