Star Wars Movie Duels

md2_full.exe | 875.49 MB

now, regardless of whether or not you play SP mods. In fact, download it now even if you don't have the game. Go buy the game while you wait. :p Now, I know some of you may look at the file size and freak out - the installer is 875 MB. But it's worth every KB! I don't play SP mods very often, and I just couldn't stop playing. So, let's begin! First off, those menus are excellent. They are easy to navigate and they look nice. Two thumbs up for that alone. :thumbsup: One of the unique things about this mod is that you can play on the good or evil side in most of the scenarios. Taking the side that is supposed to lose usually has some creative storyline involved...in fact, it's quite fun for those people who just love being extraordinarily evil for no reason. Like the first version, the only movie-based duels available are the prequels. I guess it would be rather difficult to create duels based on the original trilogy, what with them being less epic and all. Episode I [b]Short Negotiations[/b] covers the very first fight sequence in Episode I, where Qui-Gon-Jinn and Obi-Wan are sent as ambassadors to Naboo to resolve the trade dispute. There are many embellishments here, but overall, it's true enough to the original story. [b]Outskirts of Tatooine[/b] is the duel between Qui-Gon and Darth Maul right before they depart for Coruscant. This one was mostly true to the story, the only thing it was missing was the bike at the beginning (unless I somehow missed it). [b]Duel of the Fates[/b] - Wowie! Very well done. Beginning in the hangar bay and moving into the purply-white-lightning-tube section, this one had it all. It seemed like every little detail was checked with a fine-tooth comb. Everything worked wonderfully, with one exception - when I took over as Obi-Wan and the force fields released, I ran backwards and was locked out. After a very long, patient wait, I decided it was time to noclip back in and finish the job. The ending cutscene did not disappoint, either. Episode II [b]Escape Jengo Fett[/b] is a recreation of the fight between Obi-Wan and Jango on one of Kamino's landing pads. I didn't play the winning side, so I can't say whether or not the fight is entirely accurate. When I played as Obi-Wan, the fight consisted of Boba flying around shooting while Obi-wan tried to slash him up. After enough damage was dealt, a fistfight ensued. [b]Tusken Camp[/b] should be pretty obvious by the name. Anakin is looking for his mother, and he has found the Tusken camp. The mission is simply to break into the tent from the back and discover your mother is dead. Then all tuskens must be destroyed. On paper, it's short, but in-game, it's a little longer than that. [b]Geonosis Arena[/b] begins with Windu's appearance during Obi-Wan, Anakin and Padme's execution. I had some serious problems while testing this one...when the battle began and I jumped into the arena, the game lagged terribly. I assume this is because of all the AI calculations happening at once - but still, I'm running a 2 GHz core 2 duo - I shouldn't have any problems with that. Immediately afterward, I was looking for the path to travel on next, and I stumbled on a door that could be force pushed. On opening it, I was able to walk outside the map and see the void in many areas. It was obvious I was on the wrong path...so I turned back and found the correct one. After rescuing Shaak Ti, Jango Fett jumped onto the field. He was the final boss. [b]Battle of Geonosis[/b] was probably the least accurate. A large part of this is due to limitations of the engine and the lack of SP source code, so I'm not going to make a big deal out of it. I just expected "all forward positions are advancing" to mean that somebody, somewhere, was actually advancing. :p [b]Count Dooku's Escape[/b] is the long duel sequence at the end of Episode II with Count Dooku. Everything seemed accurate here, and I didn't see anything wrong. I think the force battle between Yoda and Dooku could have been elongated, but that would have detracted from the play time. Episode III [b]Rescue Over Coruscant[/b] - Defeat Count Dooku. Anakin and Obi-wan fight at first, then you go solo as Anakin. Not much else to say here. [b]Engage General Grievous[/b] includes the original confrontation on Utapau and the ending on the landing pad, where Obi shoots Grievous' insides out. It was a little short, but c'mon, did you really expect to see the entire chase scene recreated as well? [b]Arrest the Chancellor[/b] was probably the best one, aside from Duel of the Fates. Windu and his three Jedi accomplices walk into Palpatine's office to arrest him, and he fights back, saber in hand. Eventually you, as Windu, force palpatine to beg in the corner of the window, then Anakin shows up. From there, your destiny is in your own hands. [b]Attack on the Jedi Temple[/b] was hard. Only a few scenes from here were shown in the movie, like the killing of the younglings. But now, instead of the camera cutting away after your lightsaber comes on, you get to kill them yourself. On top of that, you have a lot of jedi to slice through on your way to the center of the temple. [b]Assassination on Mustafar[/b] involves only one faction - Anakin. You are sent to Mustafar to "take care of" Viceroy Gunray and the other separatist leaders. I was unable to complete the mission without noclip, however - I couldn't figure out how to turn off the force field. Otherwise, well done. [b]Retaking the Jedi Temple[/b] - Obi-Wan and Yoda have already fought through the clones outside, and now they need to clear out the inside of the jedi temple. Clones are everywhere, and some of them have more than just guns. This was pretty fun - I loved running around as little Yoda, dodging shots and jumping into someone's face. [b]Masters of the Force[/b] was the epic duel between Yoda and Palpatine, beginning in the room below the senate chambers and then moving up into the chamber itself for an extremely difficult end...the lightning that Yoda and Palpatine were supposed to shoot back and forth didn't seem to work right, though. [b]Battle of the Heroes[/b] recreates the most intense master/apprentice duel ever in Star Wars. Anakin and Obi-Wan go head-to-head on Mustafar, from the landing pad to the inside of the building, and even across the pipes and onto the equipment hanging over the lava. There was a bug here where Anakin disappeared during a jump sequence...but really, that's easy to overlook when you consider how epic the rest of the duel is. The Rise of the Empire [b]An Old Enemy[/b] - Obi-Wan is hunted down by an old enemy that he thought he defeated long ago. It's Darth Maul - refitted with robots legs. Now you have to finish him off...on a rainy tatooine. Yeah, that was a major eye-popper. Rain on tatooine. But the duel was very interesting. [b]Darth Vader's Redemption[/b] - to become a powerful sith lord, Vader must face his former self and defeat it for good. If he loses, Palpatine dukes it out with the good anakin. [b]A New Hope[/b] was a neat surprise. For you TFU fans, here you go - a mission with Starkiller in it. I don't care for TFU at all, but if you do, I'm sure you'd be happy to play this one. Challenge Mode And if all that wasn't enough, you can play in challenge mode, which takes you from duel to duel with all the major characters. You can customize the character you play as. According to the readme, there are 15 stages. I didn't get very far...I think I should brush up on those lightsaber skills. Along the way, I did spot many small graphical glitches and some areas I felt could use improvement. But I'm going to omit most of that - honestly, the vast amount of work that was put into this mod is incredible. Anyone with the commitment and patience to produce something on this scale deserves a huge pat on the back (at least) from everyone. There was one glitch on the menus that's worthy of note, though - Battle of the Heroes' missing description is incorrect until you start loading the level. One last thing I'll mention - at first, I had difficulty testing this out, because none of the maps would start. Instead, I would be kicked out to the main menu with no error message and no way to quit the game except ctrl+alt+del. After several hours of checking installations and making new isolated copies of the game, I remembered to insert the game disc. From then on, it was smooth sailing. You may commence jeering laughter at me. But remember - if you get an error while loading a map, you will get no error screen and instead will have to ctrl+alt+del your way out of the game. It's not a bug - it's an engine limitation, and it's just a minor side effect of having an awesome menu setup. If you still haven't started the download, do so, and play it when you get a little free time. You won't be disappointed. ~Dretzel

Escape: Yavin IV

escape.zip | 109.39 MB

models, new cutscenes, animations, etc. All of this is new and it's all done quite well. It was a bit of a challenge for me and I didn't even come close to finishing it (mostly because of a time restraint). If you've been bored with the SP game from Jedi Academy, you might want to check out Escape: Yavin IV. The only things I was disappointed in are significant, but don't make or break this game. The size, of course, is a factor. It's over 100MB in size, so it's going to take a while to download for quite a few of you. Second complaint would be the voice acting. It was all done by one person. And I'm not quite sure why the Queen's voice had a tinny sound to it. That didn't make any sense. Anyway, try getting more people to help voice act for your levels - there are quite a few out there who are willing. Several guys I know out there who'd be interested. And there are fewer women available, but I'm one of them! :D [/shamelessplug] Aaaaaaanyway, if you can tolerate the download - check this total conversion out! ~AmosMagee Ps. There's a walkthrough included! Okay, totally going to cheat and play this all the way through later. :D

Complete Species Pack

speciespack_if.zip | 1.24 MB

section to increase the ability to mix and match clothing options. However, I noted two major things: - Most models don't have the label applied to them. - Some of the options are mixed up Better yet, this has only two pk3s, so you can only customize certain ones because the engine doesn't support all the models. So, might be a little conflict if you only use conflicting halves. HOWEVER, it is possible to simply put both in and try and figure out what ones are what XD. Honestly, m'lady, I don't think it was necessary to put EVERY SINGLE MODEL into the species section, but rather certain ones with custom additions that aren't easily reachable would have sufficed. However, I'd rather not argue against this idea given that it seemed insane in the first place O_o. Oh well. Maybe it may appeal to you masses. I know I only use the brown cultist model, and I know how to get to that one in a heartbeat. Bored? I know Lady Forge was ¬_¬. Give it a bandwidth nibble, and see if it could be of any use to you. - Averus Retruthan

Star Wars Movie Duels - The Original Trilogy - Demo

mdtotdemov2.exe | 96.31 MB

and TFU. Well, this little mod takes care of that one! Welcome to Movie Duels - The Original Trilogy! Although this is just a demo consisting of a single level, the fight between Obi-Wan and Darth Vader from A New Hope, it's still quite a bit of fun. It's almost as well done as Movie Duels 2, however, I found that some of the animations are a bit weird. For example, when Vader gets knocked over in the last part of the level if you play as him. A big chunk of wall hits him, and he just stands there for a second, as if he is trying to decide whether or not he should fall over from it. I also had a bit of a problem with the fact that when playing as Darth Vader, I was able to pull Obi-Wan into the pit in the hangar in the first part of the fight, killing him with almost no work at all. In the second part, he jumped in himself! I literally hit him twice with my saber during the entire fight. Even so, it's best to keep in mind that this is just a demo. Anyway, I'm definitely looking forward to a full version of this mod. It is worth the download, if you can stand the .exe file format.

Single Player Dark-side conversion mod

jka_darkside_mod.zip | 3.51 MB

jedi change places, Tavion changes to Jan, Kyle changes to Boba Fett, and Luke changes to Desaan. Now. since this is your first mod, I won't be overly harsh, but still, a bug report is helpful. There were a few bugs I found: Desaan is an overscale model, so whenever he walks around, he goes a little too far forward. Kind of funny, actually, since he walked right through Jaden on the first level. After Ragnos posesses Jan in the final battle (light side ending), she changes to a missing texture. This is probably due to a shader remap, so not a really big deal...I don't even know if that can be fixed, actually. Also, there were no voice changes, but c'mon, that would have been a LOT of work. If you like the sound of it, have a go! ~Dretzel

Force Mod III Classic Edition v1.5

forcemodiii_1.5.txt | 161 B

the download link only!*** It has been almost an entire year since I reviewed the last version of the famous Force Mod III Classic Edition. That was v1.3A, somewhere along the line we must have missed out on 1.4, but now Venomous^Heart and Pitchest^Heart bring is v1.5, which includes lots of new features! Firstly, I will paste in my previous review, as that covers most of the main features, and then we shall proceed on to the updates! [quote]For those of you unfamiliar with the mod, it is a massive and far reaching project which changes many aspects of gameplay, from saber selection and combat, character classes and some fantastic little features available via the ingame menu, which I will come to later. All you need to do is look at the saber selection menu and the incredible amount of detail which has gone into it, with melee damage charts for the various types of weapons. Add to that new saber colours and a whole new saber selection interface and it makes for an amazing change, though the complicated looking damage tables will not appeal to everyone. Check out the screenies below for an example. There have also been some changes to the force power menu, with several force powers now having a \'level 4\', or turning the force up to 11 you could say. Force jump in particular on power level 4 now allows you to jump huge distances. These level 4 powers obviously cost a large amount of points to purchase however! As for character selection, as in Movie Battles II there is a wide variety of different characters to choose from ranging across several different classes, such as Jedi, Sith, Mercenary, Droid and more, with models and skins made by top notch modders. Now onto the features that I was the most impressed with; take a look at the ingame menu and you will see a variety of new options, one of my favourites being the Music menu, which allows you to choose from a variety of Star Wars music, depending on your mood or what you may be doing; using something more dramatic if you are having a duel for example, or perhaps if you don’t like the music used on a particular map you are on, you can pick from this list something which you would prefer to listen to whilst exploring or playing, or maybe just as a bit of ambience. Other features include a bonus button menu, which allows you to hide or show things like your FPS, the HUD, whether or not you want to render the weapon models, etc. which is great for taking good screenshots. I wish there was a mod like this for base JKA, it would save a load of faffing around using the /cg_draw2d and /cg_drawgun commands all the time to get good screenies! XD Another cool feature which is great for both taking screenshots and adjusting your view ingame is the aptly named Views menu, which lets you adjust things like your field of view, and also rotating the camera around your player using slider bars, another cool feature for taking screenshots, especially of skins, like the bonus button menu, this would actually be a great feature for helping the process of taking screenshots of skins for when I am reviewing them. Rather than having to use the modelview.cfg method, which although it works fine, it would still be nice to have a graphical user interface to change the camera position. Then there’s the Optimization menu, which allows you to either choose from a selection of pre-sets, or adjust settings via slider bars to help you optimize your connection and squeeze better ping, and thus less lag out of the game whilst playing online. These are some absolutely fantastic features, and I would love to see these made into separate mods for base JKA, if they haven’t been already, and if they have, please tell me where to get them! There are of course many more features to discover and much more depth to this mod than I have been able to cover here, but I hoped I have managed to touch on some of the most interesting and unique ones. This mod is definitely worth a download for those of you interested in a fantastic Multiplayer mod with loads of great features and a distinguished history, keep up the good work Venomous^Heart! ~Nozyspy~[/quote] As with last time, there are some great features here that I only wish someone would make as separate mods for Base JKA as well! I particularly liked the saber blades, very crisp and sharp, just like a blade of pure energy should look like, rather than the softer, less dangerous looking base JKA saber blades. The saber trails also looked much better; while not quite movie accurate like the OJP saber trails (some fancy coding/texture magic used there perhaps?) they looked much better than the default smudge that JKA uses! And that was just the default blade style... you can actually pick from various different blade effects, including the styles used in each of the movies along with various colours and even a colour changing blade! I also noticed that there are a huge amount of new models and skins included which really adds some variation to choose from in the different classes and alignments, not to mention some of the unique weapons they can use. I was thrilled to see the inclusion of Exar Kun and especially a [i]proper[/i] Marka Ragnos skin, one that actually has legs, not the \'Sith Spirit\' version as seen in the game! I love to see characters that usually only appear in 2D in comics and pictures made into proper, usable 3D characters, though I think Ragnos could have done with slightly darker red skin, he seems a little pale for a member of the [url=http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Sith_(species)]Sith Species[/url]. Whoever made these skins, please release them for Base JKA too, I would desperately love to review Ragnos and Exar Kun individually! I do have a few grumbles though. I found the lightsaber type and style selection menu to be a little confusing. Apparently most of the Jedi/Sith classes can only use the basic Blue, Yellow and Red forms as already found in Base JKA, but certain classes can put force points in a 4th box in the lightsaber section of the force powers menu, this allows them to use Dual and Staff sabers, as well as the ability to choose between different lightsaber forms, such as Juyo, Shii-Cho and Soresu among others. This may be my fault, down to the fact that I did not have time to properly read through the readme. However I think a help menu in game that explains the basics of how to choose a class and also how to spend force points would be a great help! Overall this is a big and very impressive update to Force Mod III Classic Edition, I would recommend giving it a try if you haven’t already! :) ~Nozyspy~ And now, for a full list of the updates, straight from the author: [quote][u]New Additions and Model Changes[/u] - Juyo Form improved with completely new updated animations. - Two new Saber Styles added; Luminara Unduli (Soresu) and Marka Ragnos (Shii-Cho). - “Wookie Pike” weapon added to staff selection. This weapon will kill an enraged Wookie in a few strikes but makes for an extremely poor melee weapon. - Models re-organized to fit the classes. - Additional models added (see readme folder for credits). - Added the Xtra small (XS) model size and assigned some models to this catagory. - Ancient Sith skin now comes in 2 versions; the standard medium size for Sith saber classes and Extra Tiny (XT) for the Dark Sage class to compete with Jedi Ancient\'s shapeshifting ability. [u]Combat Balances: Adjustments and Improvements[/u] - Melee modifications throughout for improved balance (see ingame Melee charts for reference). - Red/Purple forms given shortened duration JKA base yellow kata. - Blue Lunging kata removed, replaced with fast forward slash attack. - Butterfly kata returned to staff. - Vong defense vs guns increased. [u]Bug Fixes [/u] - NPC\'s fixed with modified models (players using only default fm3 will be crashed by them). - Twin saber flying kata replaced with tornado saber kata due to animation glitch with the first one. - Bots edited to move better, use abilities better and fix bugs. - Vong, Tusken, Noghri and Royal Guards no longer make saber sounds. - Vong, Tusken, Noghri no longer have force adept taunts and have been given bonus martial arts moves. - Royal Guards weapon glitch fixed and now have 2 forms with bonus martial arts, weapon sounds and a force adept taunt. -Movement speed bonuses on melee weapons removed due to glitches. -Power restrict removed from Grievous sabers and electro staff due to glitch.[/quote] ***Please note that due to the size of this file, we could not upload it to JKFiles directly.

Star Wars Movie Duels 2 - Demo

md2_demo.zip | 94.15 MB

and coming in Movie Duels 2.0. Obviously, it will be quite limited, but I think it's a good teaser of the mod to come. The main feature of this demo is Palpatine's Arrest, the duel between Mace Windu and Palpatine. You can play as either Mace Windu or Chancellor Palpatine. Many of the saber moves have been changed. I was able to quickly adapt to the new setup...perhaps it is similar to the setup in JO? In any case, I think the attacks were [i]much[/i] better than the base JA ones - less delicate swinging, and a lot more hard hits and pokes. I haven't seen Episode III in a long time, so I can't really say anything about how accurate (or inaccurate) the map may be, but it looks very nice to me, and it's the perfect size for a duel. I can't say much for the character models for the same reason, but again, they do the job well. I daresay the Palpatine model is spot on. There are cutscenes between the different stages of the duel as well. Here's one thing I think should be improved, if at all possible...the characters walk down the hallway just doing a simple overhead swing unless their sabers hit. Needs to be a little more...epic, methinks. Some minor choreography would be just the thing. The final cutscene of the duel is done pretty well for JA...again, I think it could be better, but it is good for Quake III. Palpatine is forced to the edge of the windowsill, and Anakin enters the room. After Palpatine is done blaming Windu for him zapping himself, you take control of Anakin, and you get to choose who dies. I very happily killed Palpatine. Twice. I had to suck it up for the third time just so I could see what happened when I killed Windu instead... XD And I wasn't disappointed in what followed. After you've played Palpatine's Arrest once, there's still a little surprise for you! A make believe scenario has been created where Anakin chooses to fight Palpatine after he has revealed his sith identity. Palpatine pulls out his saber and the two have it out. Once you've run his health down, another cutscene plays...Palpatine pulls a little something out of somewhere. It makes sense that he'd have one hidden in his office, when you think about it. Great twist, I enjoyed it much. So, what are you waiting for? Get it downloading! I'm not a fan of SP mods, but I'll have to keep an eye on this one for sure. ~Dretzel

FlufMod 0.9.5 Beta

flufmod_install.zip | 73.32 MB

variety of custom player models and skins for [i]both[/i] multiplayer and singleplayer! First of all, lets have a look at the changes to the singleplayer side of the game. [b]Singleplayer[/b] First off it is worth noting that this mod adds a huge number of excellent custom player models and skins made by a variety of authors, for you to choose from when you start a new game. Not only that but there are also customization menu options for many of these, allowing you to refine you character even further. If you want to play as a Shadowtrooper with blue, red and black armour, then you can! ;) If you want more detailed information, then be sure to check out the readme. There is also a cool little robe toggle thing, which allows you to put on or take off your outer robes on the fly, should you decide that you would rather use your robe with the hood up for a bit of sneaking around, or maybe take it off completely when battling a bunch of Cultists. This feature is available for both SP and MP. Next up we have a revamped force points system and some adjusted force powers. The author has included two very detailed though rather long, readme\'s which outline the many changes, so rather than trying to describe them myself, I may as well let the author do it: [quote] ================================= - SinglePlayer Force Point System ================================= At the moment it is quite a HACK, but it works, and that\'s the point. Through the use of the menu system and external CVARS, I created a \"different\" (far be it for me to claim \"better\") system for the distribution of forcepoints. -Force Sense I find that the Force Sense ability is supposedly innate to what a Jedi is. \"Seeing things before they happen giving them god-like reflexes\". If it were up to me, i would code in force Sense as being the most powerful ability, instead of a simple \"item and secret finder\" that the single player game makes it, or the \"bypass mindtrick\" ability that multiplayer makes it. Thus, I have taken it out of the equation somewhat, due to my current lack of modifying ability for the Single Player Game. It is still incrementable like all other abilities, but it starts the game at level 2. -Saber Throw I don\'t like saber throw. It\'s cheap, and impracticle. (Obi Wan: \"This weapon is your life!\") The jedi should never knowingly chuck their saber around the room. Our lightsaber is all we got. (I prefer to try to play and beat the Jedi Knight games without ever using any other weapons, however the placement of disrupter rifle snipers often forces me to play sniper wars *grr*). Anyway, Darth Vader(EP6) & Yoda(EP3) are the only Jedi to have been witnessed throwing their saber, and it wasn\'t with any real \"boomerang\" control, it was simply an agressive attack against Luke and a Clone Trooper. Thus, I revamped how Saber Throw is given in the game. With the default SaberPack all sabers are generically the same: all with default values. The MOD alters this play to give each saber specific combat capabilities and limitations, some of which include the inability to throw the saber. Kicks are available to those sabers that aren\'t throwable. However, since some sabers are throwable and others are not, Saber throw starts the game at 0, and it is up to you to increase it wisely. -Initial Forces: Pull: 1 //Because of the ID-10-T error, some maps require you //to be able to Pull/push objects. Also, it should be //innate for a Jedi to be able to \"pull\" items //(ie saber) to them. Sense: 2 Saber Offense: 1 Saber Defense; 1 -Tier 1: Game Start: 6 pts Missions: 1 pt (2 if All Secrets found) Total Points: 10 to 12 Possible Pts -Tier 2: First Mission: 3 pts (5 if Saber Favorite Weapon) Missions: 1 pt (2 if All Secrets found) Total Points: 7 to 12 Possible Pts -Tier 3: First Mission: 3 pts (5 if All Secrets found) Missions: 1 pts (2 if All Secrets found) Total Points: 7 to 13 Possible Pts Total Points In Game: 24 to 37 Possible Pts As you can see I did a little tweaking with the per mission point system. If you find all of the secrets on a mission (eg: Post-mission menu shows \"Secrets Found: # of #\") then, the next mission you recieve extra force points for spending. This is remaniscent of DFII:JK. However it isn\'t perfect, as some missions have secrets, but do not actually consider them as Secrets in the \"post-mission debrief\". So, basically if after the mission it displays a \"Secrets Found\" entry, and you have found ALL of the secrets for that level, you will recieve the extra point. [/quote] Next up we have some heavy modding to the saber combat system. This is where it gets even more in depth; from what I can tell you are able to choose from a variety of saber hilts, each with unique abilities and styles associated with them. For more information, be sure to read the FlufMod_Saber_Info.txt which contains a lengthy and very detailed explanation of the attributes and damages associated with each saber. [quote] =========================== - SinglePlayer Saber System =========================== -Select any Hilt, Any Style at start of game. Sabers: Dual, Staff, Single Stances: Medium, Strong, Fast, Tavion, Desann Colors: Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, Purple, Red. Hilts: (See: FlufMod_Saber_Info.txt) -New Style selection system based on increasing Saber Offense If you increase your Saber Offense you will recieve the option to add an additional style of your choice. This happens at the Weapon Selection Screen. If you choose not to add a style at this moment, select NONE and you will recieve no bonus style. After Hoth and Vjun you still recieve the default new style as per the game, however at this point you can as well select NONE and choose to retain only the styles you currently posess. This acts now to make SaberOffense a tad bit more important, not just style-wise, but also as your attack base. You can have only one style, but a level 3 saber offense, so you are really powerful offensively, even though you only use one style of saber combat. Finally, this does not affect the MOD oriented hilt limitations. You still retain ALL styles you gain in the game, even if a specific HILT does not allow you to use it, so be careful about which saber hilt you pick and what styles you pick for it. Especially after VJun, where you can \"build\" a new saber hilt, so this may or may not affect styles learned throughout the course of the game. Also, after the VJun mission, where you str able to select a new saber hilt, this has been altered to prevent changing saber types. You must stick with whatever type of saber you began the game with. I personally like this better, because as the game progresses, you are \"practicing\" saber techniques with one type of saber. \"Obi-Wan: If only you\'d spend as much time practicing your saber techniques as you do flying, and you\'d rival Master Yoda as a swordsman.\" Hence, you don\'t really alternate between the saber types, you focus on ONE type and get really good at it. With this as well, I believe wholeheartedly in the role-play aspects, and thus if you increase your SaberOffense with one type of saber, you should have to start from Level 1 again for a different type of saber combat. Which, since I could not code this effect with the limited resources available for Single Player mods, I simply eliminitated the option.[/quote] As the author states in his readme, and as you can see from the amount of time and detail he has put into this mod, he is attempting to add some more RPG and choice related aspects to JKA, which while it allows you more freedom in gameplay than JK2, is still pretty linear gameplay wise. I would really like to go into this mod in more depth, but the very fact of its complexity makes it difficult to test for a review since we generally don’t have that much time, especially for huge mods like this. For the full effect, I would definitely recommend downloading this and starting a new game! Now, that’s the major points of the singleplayer side of the mod dealt with, so what about the multiplayer aspects? [b]Multiplayer[/b] AS in singleplayer, there have been some significant changes to the saber system, as outlined below: [quote] ================================= - Saber Style Selection... ================================= Yes, I think it is rather pointless, and annoying, for Raven to have coded in 7 total saber styles, and yet you can only use at best 3 at a time. Sabering is more than just 3 distinct methods, hell its more than the mere 7 animations they\'ve included, and since I\'m not a modeller we\'ll just have to make do. Instead, I basically opened up all the styles, Tavion, Fast, Medium, Strong, Desann, Dual, and Staff, as a point based system using your Saber Offense Level. Level 1 - 1 Point Level 2 - 3 Points Level 3 - 5 Points This works out, because Dual and Staff cost 3 points as opposed to all other styles 1 point. In addition to the Saber file scripts, you can configure the sabers to bonus you with styles or limit others. Like Anakin\'s EP2 saber, is normal, but his EP3 saber and Darth Vader\'s saber both have Desann learned, so you don\'t have to buy it. On the server side, you can effect styles available with a server CVAR, listed below. As well, Bot JKB files can use the same method of saber style flags in their force power string. Using the same bit flag addition values as you would for the g_SaberStyleDisable CVAR listed below (but only for the Styles not the disable flags) you would append that value to the bot\'s personality\'s forcepower string as follows: Example: 7-1-222222202020003333-104 The -104 gives the bot the use of Tavion, Strong, and Dual styles, I think. Not too good on the whole AI section of the source code, but they all use the same parsing engine as it does for the player, so for now I believe it works, and I\'ll keep testing for later revisions.[/quote] To be honest, I really have to agree with the author here, considering that Raven used different saber styles and attacks for Tavion and Desann its quite annoying that they only included 3 styles for the single saber and 1 for the dual and staff sabers each. Its a shame that we have to resort to modding to include extra styles like Tavion\'s and Desann\'s, when I think Raven should have included these and maybe more styles to begin with so that we would have more variety in gameplay. Along with this there have been many changes to the way force powers work, from the use of force points and force regen times, to adjustments of the various force powers, such as having to hold down the force speed (now called force dash) button in order to continue using it, which makes sense, as like the author says in his readme, Jedi don’t just \'turn it on and off\'. There have also been some adjustments to saber throw, meaning the saber now flies in a strait line, a la Yoda in Episode III, and you now have to go and pick your saber up afterwards, as it no longer returns automatically to your hand. There are many more adjustments which are explained in greater detail in the readme, which I wont paste in here since those alone are about three pages long! For more info be sure to read the readme! So what does the author have planned for future versions of this mod? [quote] ================================= - Future Plans ================================= First let me note that help is ALWAYS appreciated, especially from the fine folks at the filefront.com forums and elsewhere on the \'Net who help point out certain things and help me seek the location for things as well as offering advice, pointers, and general answering of foolish questions modders like me sometimes need. So anyway, in the end, this section is just a list of things I would \"like\" to do in the future, but can\'t because I suck. - Update Saber Deflections of standard Blaster attacks. I\'d like to change it so that it would deflect some on its own, but if you actively hold a key to \"contribute\" extra attention, your deflection rate skyrockets. Very rarely did you see powerful Jedi affected by blasters, especially when they were concentrating on deflecting the missles. I\'d like to add the Concentration. - Update a \"Sense\" radar. I dunno how exactly I\'d do this but I\'d like to make some sort of radar that would indicate hostile intention in a specific direction, for those rare moments when that 2D screen is just to limiting on the peripheral vision it would be nice to have the force work for us, point out where that last shot came (or is coming) from. [/quote] Personally I think both of these ideas are excellent. The idea for the saber deflection modifications reminds me of the Star Wars Episode I Game, where you actually had to use the attack button to deflect blaster bolts, which I have to say was much more satisfying than just having it done for you! I also like the \'sense radar\' idea, this would be very useful in FFA\'s and it could also be quite useful on singleplayer, when you see the beam of a disruptor rifle graze your shields and want to know where the shot came from. All in all a [i]very[/i] in depth and complex mod here. This wont appeal to everyone of course, but I am sure some people will absolutely love it! Just a note to the author for next time around though, I think it would be a good idea to include a simplified readme with a briefer outline of the features to make it easier for newbies to get started with the mod and also for the benefit of us reviewers to be able to quickly see what the mod features without having to do a lot of reading or hours of play-testing. ;) Keep up the good work JaedenRuiner, your modding skills are impressive, most impressive! ;) ~Nozyspy~

Attack of the Clones: Total Conversion Demo

aotctcdemo.zip | 53.15 MB

and an early demo, at that. You might recognize a few features from other mods. There\'s a profanity filter, like the one found with xMod. It also has RGB sabers, which offers quite a bit of variety. There\'s an illegal macro/script detection and deletion thingy. You can\'t use force while saber down (I\'m sure that feature can be toggled on and off), admins can teleport someone by name, not just by origins. So there\'s a lot of stuff here that should make admins very happy. :) There are new gametypes and all of the JK2 gametypes. There\'s an Anti-Lag system and there\'s a file that stores banned IP\'s, much like in the JA/JAR mod. Probably the coolest new feature is weather control. You can add lightning, rain and a sandstorm all at once. :) From what I understand, this is like, the mod to end all mods. ;) There are more gametypes that will be added and there\'s a ton of other stuff you can expect in later releases. Keep at it guys! Great work! ~AmosMagee Ps. This review is like, dedicated to Plague, for no particular reason - except that he asked that I dedicate a review to him. ;)

Star Wars Movie Duels

install_star_wars_movie_duels_v1.01.exe | 255.64 MB

admitting powerful opposing forces. This mod is dedicated solely for Single Player purposes, built for those waves upon waves of masses who want to jump in on the key critical prequel battles. Yes, that's right, prequel battles only. Rather despairing for those of us who would have wanted to take on the beastly form of Vader that isn't a total pansy boy. However, I digress; ONWARD TO THE BEEF =_=! First off, it's time to point the bony finger at the technical issues. First off, practically in every campaign sequence, there's a bit of a saber issue: If you cycle to one particular blue stance, whose name evades me, it locks up your stance cycle choices, pretty much =_=. This may make it a little difficult to fight in some already difficult fights =_=+ A small issue with the hud seems to be that the right saber indicator's "MD" is backwards, but that's easily ignored. One final bug to mention: Quicksaving is not exactly a good thing to do for immersion purposes. Why? Well, when it loads, the model you're playing as will usually screw up unmercifully. Worst instance being in Dooku's. Trust me =_= Now then, for the actual synopsis and destructive force of this mod. First off, know that this mod is actually presents you with a number of well-scripted and pretty well choreographed battle sequences, complete with clips from the actual movies. The scenes vary in quality and length, depending on what player you play as. That's right, you have the CHOICE to pick between one party over the other. Which character you play will change the scenario to a varying degree. Each scenario contains a bonus mission that you can use to mix things up with >_>! Behold, the options available to you. Each mission has an Easy, Medium, and Hard setting, which you can view how they affect your battle. For the sake of brevity, I will be referring to the campaign sequences broadly, so as not to spoil the fun, and save my wrists =_= [b]Episode I[/b] [i]Outskirts of Tatooine -[/i]This is a decent recreation of the battle between Maul and Qui Gon out in the desert. This one is a little different in the fact that you'll not actually engage your quarry immediately. In both Maul and Qui-Gon's case, you have to go through a varying amount of Tuskens. Qui-gon sadly has to tote a kid along, albeit he's not much of a liability. Personally, I found this battle to be a little lopsided in difficulty =_,= if you don't play fair. For kicks, I decided to fight Qui-gon with Maul on his trademark speeder. Suffice to say, it was quite amusing to watch him perish. Qui-gon actually got the short end of the stick, because he doesn't have many force powers to defend with. Suffice to say, the bonus mission was a rather amusing twist. [b]Episode II[/b] [i]Encounter with Count Dooku -[/i]Probably one of the best in the bunch next to the Battle of the Heroes campaign that will be explained shortly. This battle is a relatively accurate battle recreation of the final Episode II lightsaber battle between Anakin, Obiwan, and Yoda, as they take on the malevolently awesome Christopher Lee.....you know him as Count Dooku =_=. Anyway, the only oddity I noticed was some of the lousy repetitive combat action in the cinematic sequences. Otherwise, it's near gold, in terms of accuracy. You'll not be disappointed, except perhaps in the bonus mission, I suppose. Didn't feel very inspired, but I digress. Allow me to preface by saying that Episode III was sadly the most fleshed out one. This is understandable, seeing as there were more battles, but something tells me more could have been added to the other two (bare minimum being Duel of the Fates.) [b]Episode III[/b] [i]Rescue Over Coruscant -[/i]The classic battle aboard the invisible hand. A well-scripted and effectively used scene. At this point, there wasn't much worth noting other than the hefty length: be prepared for some serious hardship when in combat, no matter what side you're on. The bonus mission is an interesting new spin on what could have occurred aboard the Invisible Hand. You would be wise to take a look. Short as it is, it's still amusing to think about. [i]Engaging General Grievous -[/i] To preface, yes, you will be going up against all four of Grievous's arms =_,= fear them well, or use them well. This battle I found to be rather amusing, particularly in scripting, as there were some interesting little surprises once the battle got underway =_=. Mid-battle cutscene sequences felt a little dry, but fine otherwise. My favorite sequence had to be the final electrostaff combat scene between the two. Nothing more amusing than going staff to staff =_,= unless of course, Grievous feels like taking potshots upon ye. Bonus mission is okay, albeit not great. [i]Battle of Heroes -[/i]Yes, the ones you EP3 fanchildren have been waiting for =_= *sighs* Suffice to say, this one was probably the most epic, both in scripting, mapping, and cinematics. This battle was pretty much the most impressive, and it took massive works. A rather impressive feat that I noted in the second half of the battle, whilst on the sinking lava machinery, there are bits of ash and lava in the air that hiss against your saber. A nice touch =_,= This one I noted had actual very large differing outcomes, depending on what character you fought as. Whilst playing as Obi Wan gave you the canon ending, an Anakin victory had you...well =_= I'll just let you fight for that. Bonus mission added an odd possibility to the mix of who could attack Anakin. I got exhausted and didn't play through it all, so you will have to find out what happens =_,= Done with all that? Well then, try out the CHALLENGE MODE! Yes =_= a ladder-esque combat sequence in which you can choose what character you fight as, and engage in a series of battles versus different characters, some of which you don't normally see fight =_=. Well, this has all been fun and all, but I've finally defeated the bulk of this mod's content =_= not literally, as midway, I decided to enable the convenient "god mode" button to help speed up the process, rather than get slain time and time again. This mod is quite challenging, and will probably give you great pride in defeating everything. I can safely say that the large file size is worth the epic battles you will have =_,=. BANDWIDTH TO ALL, FAR AND WIDE, OR ELSE I WILL REND YOUR SPINE ASUNDER FOR MAKING ME TYPE ALL THIS CRAP IN VAIN =_= - Averus Retruthan

SWGalaxy - Jedi Academy Graphics Expansion

swgalaxy_mod_2.2.txt | 169 B

the download link only!*** [i]Firstly, I should apologise to the makers of this mod for the delays in getting it reviewed. Apart from the huge filesize, which was a problem for the site upload I am the only one working here at the moment (we are unable to hire new staff due to login bugs) and I have so many things to get done![/i] I have seen graphical improvement mods for a few other games, usually involving higher resolution textures or higher poly models, but here we have something rather special; a [i]huge[/i] graphical improvement mod for JKA, which not only has given the games textures a good going over, but adds some really beautiful new shader and bloom effects, helping to make JKA that little bit prettier! Before I go on though I should mention that I had some complications getting this mod to work. I run Windows 7 (XP was my old friend, Vista was evil and shall burn in hell) and I was getting the “VM_Create on UI Failed” error message in the console that stops the game from starting. On Vista and 7 this can be fixed by running JKA as an administrator and setting it to Win XP service pack 2 in the compatibility tab (right click on shortcut then properties). However this mod obviously did something which invalidated that. However, after a bit of faffing around and experimenting, I got it to work by going to my gamedata folder and doing the administrator/XP Compatibility thing on the jamp.exe (should also work for jasp.exe) and doing the same for the JAMinimizer.exe which can be found in the same folder. After that I used the mods shortcut on my desktop and it worked fine. Though when you set your display resolution and other things in game, you will need to restart the game properly for it to work. I should also mention that you need to make sure you select the correct path for your LucasArts/Jedi Academy folder in the installer as it is not set by default! Also, don’t forget to use the JA Configurator Tool to make sure the mods graphical and other settings (of which there are a variety, such as menu, JA++ etc.) are right for you! And if you decide you want to uninstall it that is very easy, just use the Uninstall Shortcut and it is done in a jiffy, so you needn’t worry about digging through your base folder to delete things. Anyway, on with the features! Apart from masses of revamped textures, which have been given more of a grainy, harsh look (those these can be turned off in the configurator), there are also some amazing bloom/glow effects. On their own, the textures would probably look a bit over done, but combined with the bloom effects it gives JKA a feel much more like the graphics in modern games. Daytime skies in particular look amazing with the bloom shader, though beware of snow, as the bloom effect washes out all detail in the snow texture and basically makes the ground look like a light bulb! I suppose they don’t call it snow blindness for nothing! There is a completely new menu, a rather eclectic mix of new skins and the ability to have a first person view for lightsabers, among many other things! I imagine some people will not like the way the game looks with this mod, it is a [i]big[/i] change and things like bloom effects tend to be love them or hate them kind of things. Still I think this mod is well worth a try if you are looking to spruce up the way JKA looks! I think the screenshots below speak for themselves! Unfortunately there are a few bugs here and there, one i encountered was that the graphcis settings kept resetting themselves. Another one is that for some reason maps which use portal skyboxes appear invisible which renders them unplayable. Rather weird bug! I cant think what could be causing a bug like that. :S Overall though this is a pretty amazing mod, I have not seen the likes of this before and I think this is some thing pretty special, so good work to all the people who worked on this! :D ~Nozyspy~ ***Please note that due to the size of this file, we could not upload it to JKFiles directly.

Jedi Academy Update

for the original package. Enjoy! [/quote] This includes restoring original sounds for certain JK2 characters(including desann, the shadowtroopers, jan, [b]ACTUAL Reelo Baruk[/b] sounds, bespin cop, etc,) some REALLY great vehicle sounds(loved 'em so much I'm keepin 'em,) and of course some other fun goodies like lightsaber effects, pistol effects, what have you, as well as -- like Noob explained -- everything that the [file="117490"]JO Update[/file] offered. Now, what would have been great is if you could have restored the old reborn sounds and threw in the old colors as well. That's definitely something this pack was missing, but considering you can probably get like 10 copies of that around here, it's no big deal. All in all, it's one solid as hell pack, and worth every Megabit. A stellar job, J.N.. You definitely hit it out of the park with this pack, far as I'm concerned. Good pack. Worth a peek. Get it. - Averus Retruthan

Raschu's and Ashura's Steampunk Pack Teaser

raschu_and_ashuras_sp_teaser_pack.zip | 24.41 MB

the following: [b]- A new kyle reskin:[/b] Kyle has now gotten quite rustic, and has been given a new sort of coat and pants, giving him a rather patrician look, for the most part. Pretty neat looking, I'll give ya that. Might make a fitting kyle override...yes =_= [b]- A new jan reskin:[/b] Jan pretty took a different approach, with an all white undersuit and rustic brown jacket and hair to match. It also seems to have french taunts, so you've been warned if you experience culture shock. Oh, yeah, both of those have bots, so fear. [b]- The Steam Saber:[/b] This in itself is a new model made by AshuraDX, and looks QUITE intense, looking quite true with the steam punk theme. Just a bit of a shame that there's no custom activation sounds, but I can definitely accept what we've got now. [b]- The StarZapper (V2):[/b] This thing has gotten a total model overhaul, albeit it seems to cling closely to the E-11 design. As with the previous version, it has custom sounds, and looks quite potent, albeit I must confess that the first person view seems to be a bit obstructive. so that might need some attention. However, it's quite awesome, and given my limited ability to describe something as ornate as this, I'm just gonna say LOOK AT TEH SCREENSHOTS AND ENJOY. So all in all, looks to be quite the delectable treat if you're into steampunk(I don't claim to be an avid fan, but it 's something I've considered looking into,) or if you just feel like something other than vanilla JA. Definitely worth a look. - Averus Retruthan

Hercules and Xena Skins

hercules_xena_skins_versi2.zip | 100.4 MB

that it adds/replaces a whole bunch of skins with their Xena or Hercules counterparts. Don't ask me why Luke=Hercules or why the rebel pilot is now a Mon Mothma reskin that still has a man's voice... these details are beyond me. What I do know is that I apparently didn't watch Xena long enough to know who all these characters are, or what they're supposed to look like. I do know what Xena and Hercules are supposed to look like, though, and I can tell you right off the bat that no base assets model is going to be able to capture either of them... and I wasn't too far off. Most of the skins here actually are a little off, mostly because the faces are one notch down from blasphemy. It's like the author put a lot of effort into adding all this stuff, but very little into refining it. Most of the faces are not quite lined up -- a lot of the mouths don't match the mouth on the model, so when they talk they look silly -- and a lot of skin tones between meshes don't match. And don't even ask me why you would skin an arm texture over a poofy sleeve. That one I can't begin to fathom. Long story short, this needs a lot of work and a lot more attention before it's playable in an enjoyable fashion. As a big Xena fan myself, I'd love to see a great Xena skin. The one here only has a passing resemblance to Lucy Lawless, which is for me at least a big disappointment for what could be a very interesting mod, if the author would take the extra time, work out the kinks, and really place the appropriate emphasis on the details. The big picture is all good and fine, but without the details it's more of a sketch than a portrait. ~Inyri[/quote] Now let’s start by saying that this looked interesting to me and though I was no fan of Hercules and Xena I do like however Greek mythology. First we’ll talk about all the goodies in this mod. There are sabers, hilts, tons of skins to mix and match, weapon reskins, hotkeys assigned for both cheats and npcs. Also you have a very handy button for changing skins on the fly. And many npcs. Now let’s discuss the material. Some of the skins look decent but the textures don’t seem that great to me I don’t know why but there is something funky about them. The clothes don’t really look natural up close and the faces seem to have a bit of skin tone mismatch. The sabers were good but not really all that impressive. It comes with a few hilts and while some look good some just look like they were rushed and not fully completed. Now this pack also replaces the menus and loading screens with a collage of pictures from the characters of the shows but the menus just have a small pig with a red cape which doesn’t really make any sense at all but ok. The Single player campaign was completely changed with the skins on this pack. There were some bugs, at the end there was this bug that maybe only happened to me, but when Tavion is possessed by Ragnos her body is changed to this untextured reborn looking thing. And the same happens when you kill her. Also at the end Kyle’s replacement gets swallowed into the ground and Hercules which replaces Luke is also swallowed only to his hip so you see your character walking next to a legless Hercules and Kyle seems to be talking from under the concrete. Oh and the Mon Mothma reskin is still acting as a pilot which freaks you out when you hear such manly voice, but I guess it's funny though. The MP element is just standard, but with all the skins available including the Ragnos reskin which in my opinion is one of the best looking reskins in the pack, adds a bit of variety. Overall it’s an original idea that fans will love given the options to select either mortals, gods, and demigods. It provides a great selection of outfits and for the male audience there are some provocative outfits included here. The one skin that I would say definitely needs it’s own model is Medusa as the Twi’lek female doesn’t really make justice to this specific character. I hope that the V3 is better, this is an improvement don’t get me wrong I saw V1 but it still needs a lot more work, maybe some more texturing and make the skin tones match, and use shaders to help you out. So if you like Xena and Hercules or just Ancient Greek Mythology then this pack is for you just don't get your hopes up too much. [i]Lady_Trinity[/i]

Dark Side Perspective Mod v4

darkforcev4.zip | 11.52 MB

ease of use. First off we have a mod which isn’t really ‘Dark Side themed’ but nevertheless does fit well with everything else in the compilation (since its red and sort of evil looking); an Alien Vs Predator 2 style crosshair. Next up we have a mod which changes the colour of force lightning to… you guessed it! Red! To be honest I have always thought that red lightning looks much scarier and more evil than the normal force lightning. I seem to remember that Darth Maul, in the final boss battle of the Episode 1 game, used red lightning against the player. Maybe that’s where it stems from? Anyways, this is a simple change, but it is indeed effective and I like it! Next up we have a saber stance mod which is supposed to give you a back-handed lightsaber stance like in The Force Unleashed. However the only stance this seemed to affect was the stance for the staff saber, rather than the single saber style as I was expecting. Last up we have the HUD mod, which is basically the same HUD as the default JKA one, but in a red and black colour theme which fits well with the rest of the red themed mod’s in this compilation. There are also some interesting additions; the first one you will notice is the new splash screen that shows when you start up the game. Whilst this looks ok, I think it would have been better fitting with the theme of the mod if it had a Sith character on it, or some red lightsaber’s/lightning to indicate the Dark Side connection. There is also a .exe to start the mod, although this isn’t necessary since the mod starts up with the game if you just place the .pk3 in your base folder. Also included is a cheat .cfg file, if you are so inclined! Lastly, there is also a new load screen based on the one with the two characters duelling against the starry background, you know the one. This has been edited slightly with… oddly… the addition of a few bell peppers?! (Yes, the fruit!) I’m not sure what that’s all about! :P Whilst the author didn’t make these mod’s, I must say I am glad that they have been compiled into one easy to use mod, rather than having to look all over and download each one individually. All of the mod’s fit well together despite being made by different authors (who’s names you can find in the included readme’s) so I must say well done to the author of this file for finding and compiling a series of mod’s which fit so well together. Overall a nice compilation mod here, if you want to take a walk on the Dark Side, then give this a download! :) ~Nozyspy~

Chronicles Total Conversion - Demo

chronicles.rar | 72.98 MB

rival MovieBattles II in terms of the scope of the mod. To explain a little further I think I should paste in a snippet from the readme, as I think it explains the mod’s purpose very well. [quote] Star Wars Chronicles is a Jedi Academy Modification that is being developed by the Chronicles Team since August 17th 2007. The idea is creating singleplayer missions that resembles to the six movies of the saga, something that many dreamt and couldn't do so far. We count with a huge number of members that are working to provide you the best quality and pleasure. MovieBattles Team, responsible for creating the famous MovieBattles II modification is supporting us.[/quote] Well, like I said, this is going to be one beast of a mod! Basically recreating the Star Wars sage in Jedi Academy! The demo they have presented to us here is just a taster of the good things to come. The demo features the beginning of Episode I: The Phantom Menace, with a faithful recreation of the Trade Federation ship. In fact, when I played this, especially the bit where Obi and Qui-Gon break out of the conference room, it reminded me of the old Episode 1 game. Man that brought back good memories! :D Obviously being a demo, some things aren’t fully realised yet, but that’s ok because what is in this demo gives you an excellent taster of the gameplay. The mod features a new HUD which is clean and simple and looks great and I was especially impressed with the start menu (the one that pops up when you click the mod’s icon on your desktop). From there you can choose to play either the default JKA single or multiplayer as well as the mod. But buttons are also there which will take you straight to the credits, or the teams Moddb page, Official Website or Official Forums! I personally thought this was a very nice touch, allowing you to jump to whichever site you want to see very quickly and straight from the mod’s start-up menu screen on your desktop. The menu screens ingame have also been given a good going over, with a new background and graphics and some great new music playing too. One particular aspect which I must commend the team on was the cut-scenes, which are very close to the films actual scenes, and also include the films dialogue too, which helps with the cinematic feel. Though this is a demo and doesn’t represent the completed mod, there are a couple of things I would suggest working on. For one I think the textures in the Trade Federation ship could do with a bit more texture and detail to them, since they looked a little flat in places. Also in one area Qui-Gon (you play as Obi) got stuck, and I had to try and continue alone. Unfortunately because of this I wasn’t able to play the demo right until the end, but I feel I got a good taste of what this mod can offer. All in all this is a fantastic demo and I look forward with great anticipation to the full release of this mod. I definitely recommend a download here, you won’t be disappointed! :) ~Nozyspy~

characters become the 'bad' ones, but it also makes some other minor changes, such as only being able to choose a red bladed saber from the saber menu. To be honest, I personally wasn't thrilled with this mod. I've seen this sort of thing done before, multiple times. However, for those who still play the single player game, and want a slightly new experience, give it a download and have fun with it. I'll wait for another version with more features.[/quote] Hello new version with new features! What new features, you ask? Why, the choice to play as a cultist, and the ability to launch the game through a .bat file! Doing this execs some cfgs that screw up your settings... I was a bit annoyed that I had to set my video settings back up to the level they were before, not to mention resetting all my controls. It's funny, jump was unbound, and that's a bit important when playing this game... Oh yeah, a lot of the binds were changed to give you full force when you use them, pretty much making it so that you would have unlimited force. Of course, you have to enable cheats for that to work, since they are turned off by default when you start the game. To be honest, I'm still not thrilled. It's an improvement, yes, but still has quite a long way to go before it is your above average Dark Side mod...

Escape: Yavin IV - The Lost Maps

ey4.zip | 306.41 MB

conversion. Well, saying it\'s a sequel may not be completely accurate. It\'s really something of a replacement - a totally new story, twenty-five new levels, and plenty of new content to choose from. As it\'s very [i]very[/i] long, I tested the first level fully, and will leave the rest to you. However even just from the first level I can tell the quality is way up there. The puzzles are difficult, the levels, even on the easiest setting, are challenging, and the cutscenes are very good. The voice acting could have used a little work, mostly in just the sound quality area (a lot of the voice actors just seemed a smidge too close to their microphones), but the feeling of the characters comes across well enough. The author recommends you remove all custom PK3s from your base folder in order for this mod to work. The main reason behind this seems to be the incredibly high number of NPCs in the mod - if you have extra NPCs in your base folder your extensions will be too long and you won\'t be able to play, so keep that in mind. However the mod comes with enough customization on its own that you probably won\'t feel the need to have extra mods when you play it. I\'m not going to get too detailed on the features of this mod, but I will re-iterate a few things Darrow mentions in his read-me (which I strongly recommend you read). First of all, as I said, it has 25 brand new levels that were not included in the original EY4. Secondly, the interface of the game is new, including a \"chapters\" menu for easy level selection and a new saber menu (you can steal dropped sabers! yay!). It seems like after each level you can customize your sabers based on ones you acquired during the previous missions. So it\'s kind of like an \"unlocking\" system, from what I can gather. The TC also sports three, count \'em [b]three[/b], ending sequences, which is sure to keep you busy trying to get each one. So if you\'re one of those types who loves single-player but whines and moans about how bad the single-player campaign Raven included is, here\'s your chance to try something a little bit more involved. However be warned - you\'re not ridding yourself of Rosh Penin! ~Inyri

Dark Forces Mod (Demo 2)

dfmod_demo_ja.zip | 194.51 MB

Forces was the first game in the Jedi Knight Series (Dark Forces, Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight, Jedi Knight, Jedi Knight II e.t.c), and it came out way way back when I got my first PC. In fact, the original game was probably the first FPS I ever played and in that respect I think I know the game pretty well :) This file is basically a remake of that game for Jedi Academy. What the team for this mod has done is taken the old game and completely transferred it onto JKA, new textures, new sounds, better all around you could say. There are three demo levels in this mod, all of them fairly large, but you have to play them in order, starting with the good old imperial base. I spawned in a small lift and the grate opens into a narrow corridor, exactly as I remembered it from the original game. Here comes my biggest and worst point about the entire first two levels of the demo. FPS. It's absolutely awful, and running around this level is absolutely horrifying. It doesn't go too low, i.e below 10, but in the cavern area it never goes above 20 either. If a little more attention to VIS had been used, and techniques such as area-portaling, some indoor areas could have been vastly improved. The same applies to the second city level. Whilst it looks fantastic, and the weather effects are stunning, the map may be verging on 'unplayable' for those with lower spec PC's. However, this is THE worst thing about the mod, because pretty much everything else is great :D (As you'd expect from three years work) After stealing the plans from the imperial base in level 1, you're treated to some remakes of the original cut-scenes which are very nice indeed. The downside is that the character's mouths don't move which looks a little silly, but the whole effect is simply jaw-dropping. This leads you onto Level 2. (My favourite) Set on a planet called Talay, a city-typed area called Tak-Base has come under fire from the imperial forces and their new 'secret' weapon (A.K.A Dark Trooper.) Spawning into this level and I was instantly greeted with some intense weather effects and some brilliant ambient noise. Then I was off through the city, trying to find the power generator. It was a pain at first as its so darn easy to get lost, but when you get there and turn all the lights on the city is much brighter and well, you get the idea. Onto the musical aspects. Each level comes with the same music it had in the original game, except remade so it isn't so midi-like. Whilst this is accurate to the game, they're not that amazing to listen to anymore, and the transition between the action music and the stealth music isn't always as smooth as it could have been. My example here would be the title credits you see when you first load a new game. Whilst the music is what it sounded like in the original game, it would have been much better to have put the orchestrated version here because it sounds so much better! There are a few new enemies to kick around, like the sewer monsters in level 3, but the animations need tweaking slightly to make them more lifelike. As they stand, they look like cardboard cut-outs when they die ;) The weapons here are also from the original game, but the two you'll use the most in this demo are pretty much the same as the JKA versions. (The Bryar pistol and the E11) You also get thermal detonators, but I was disappointed there were none of the cooler weapons available to test out. All health and ammo pickups have been altered to resemble those from the original game, as has the HUD. The startup menus have also been changed, now being more green and saying "Dark Forces" instead of Jedi Academy. But for the final, please get rid of the annoying button-click sounds, they are far too loud and repetitive! What else? I'm not going to go into describing the depth and detail of the levels because it would take far too long. Just have a look at the screenshots and then test it yourself to from your own opinion. :) Oh yes, the enemy AI. I don't know whether it's the default JKA which I'm criticising here, but sometimes I could be stood behind an enemy, or sometimes even in front of them and they wouldn't notice I was there, whilst other came after me from halfway around the level (Stupid interrogator droids ;) ) My favourite level was Talay because I love cityscapes, but the best to play was Anoat Sewers because the framerate there was vastly improved. I'm sure there's plenty more I've forgotten to mention, such as the cool cutscenes and briefing screens, but If you download the mod you can see for yourself! I believe with some fiddling this demo will also work on a MAC. Check the developer's website for more info. ~Szico VII~

Star Wars Chronicles Duels Pack 1

duels_pack_1.rar | 227.51 MB

Fates' from Episode I and the Duel between Dooku, Anakin, Obi-Wan and finally Yoda from Episode II. For anyone not familiar with the Chronicles Mod you should check out their website, [url=http://www.swchroniclesmod.com]here[/url]. The first thing you see in any Single Player mod, is of course the menu screens and these are rather clever! Available from the 'Start New Game' option are the two duels, but what is clever is that the button for each duel, when moused over, is actually a small video of the duel itself! Not something that is hugely important to the gameplay, but it’s a nice touch nonetheless! First off, let's have a look at: [b]Duel of the Fates.[/b] This is probably one of the most famous bits of any of the Star Wars films, not least because of that amazing 'hairs on the back of your neck' soundtrack by John Williams. Its also just an incredibly choreographed duel and is always enjoyable to watch. Here we get our chance to play as Obi-Wan and duel Darth Maul ourselves. Believe me, this is not easy, it takes skill and perseverance to complete these duels and I died several times on each. Out of the two though I would definitely say that Duel of the Fates is the most difficult, primarily because old Qui-Gon isn't really very helpful. :P That is one of the few issues I found with this mod; Qui-Gon often just stops behind pillars or sometimes just walks around casually while Darth Maul continues attacking you, which makes things rather more difficult. The cutscenes in both duels are fantastic however. They are on par, if not better than the cutscenes made for JKA by Raven and include characters that move their mouths and are lip synched to the speech and full sound from the movies, which adds a really nice level of realism to everything. The camera angles and character movements are also unbelievably similar to the actual shots the film, which is quite an accomplishment considering the limitations of JKA. The Duel of the Fates map is also very impressive and accurate to the film. Along with the excellent skins this rounded this half of the mod off nicely. It really does feel very cinematic! [b]Geonosis Duel[/b] This is of course the duel that was at the end of Episode 2 featuring Count Dooku, Anakin, Obi-Wan and Yoda. You start out as Obi Wan and fight until the scene where Dooku disarms Obi-Wan and Anakin saves him just in time before Dooku cuts poor Obi in half. You then switch over to controlling Anakin and then when Anakin gets his arm chopped off you finally get to play as Yoda! The cutscenes and character changes occur when you get Dooku's health down to a certain amount. Again the cutscenes are fantastic and contain full music and speech from the film along with lip synching characters. The thing I was impressed with most though is the map. It really does have a Geonosis feel and is the best recreation of the Geonosis duel area that I have ever seen. The sky outside especially looked fantastic; somehow the author of the map has been able to make the skybox sort of 'glowy'. There is a screenshot below where you can see what I mean, it's very difficult to describe since it doesn't look quite the same as the glow from a light. In any case I haven't a clue how it was done, although I would very much like to find out! As for bugs on this half of the mod, I only noticed one. It was however most bizarre... Instead of Padme appearing at the end and running into the hangar as she does in the film, it was actually a Stormtrooper. How this happened I have no idea, I also don't know whether this problem was unique to me, e.g. caused by a file conflict, but in any case the Padme model was replaced by a Stormtrooper. Weird, and a little amusing but nothing too serious! Overall; fantastic work here and well worth a download! Keep up the good work guys, I look forward to seeing Duel Pack 2! :D ~Nozyspy~ And now a message from the Chronicles Team: [quote] Star Wars Chronicles is a Jedi Academy Modification that is being developed by the Chronicles Team since August 17th 2007. The idea is creating singleplayer missions that resembles to the six movies of the saga, something that many dreamt and couldn't do so far. We count with a huge number of members that are working to provide you the best quality and pleasure. MovieBattles Team, responsible for creating the famous MovieBattles II modification is supporting us. In this Duel Pack Series we have planned to give the fans a taste of our work. The demo was about missions, this is how the duels will be in the full version. You will get to be Obi-Wan in Duel of The Fates and duel against Darth Maul with the help of Qui-Gon. All scenes are exactly as the original movies from the camera point of view to character animations as much as the engine allows us. It is of great importance to us that you feel like in the movie. Moreover in the Geonosis Duel, you will fight as 3 different characters including the little green guy, Yoda! The lightning effect of the Sith lord was supported by shaders to make it more realistic during cinematic's. The Duel might be hard for you new starters, but keep trying, Count Dooku is just another tinny. Both missions are beautifully scripted and mapped, you will surely want to play more after this experience. We are planning on a second duel pack that will most probably feature Battle Over Coruscant and Emperor's Throne Duel. So keep your heads up for the next update very soon.[/quote]

TK-231\'s Special Effects Mod V1 Base

zzz_authenticsbase.zip | 24.87 MB

it first! I will say, first of all, that this mod comes highly recommended by Averus. It changes quite a bit, and just to irritate you even more, I will say this much: READ THE README FOR THE LIST OF CHANGES. Suffice to say, there are some that apparently he didn\'t mention. At least one Gran sound came from Dark Forces O_o which is ironic, because I\'ve been playing that. Anyway, I will mention one bug that I caught unwittingly. In singleplayer, the gunfire sounds don\'t seem to play for the changed weapons. Other than that, the mod\'s fine. I will point out that I love the sniper zoom sound O_,o it\'s quite malevolent, and I will definitely punch an unsuspecting child in celebration. Overall, my words do no justice to this mod. I suggest reading the readme, looking at the screenshots, and see if this would be of any use for you. If you use gun mods, probably not. However, this is definitely worth an inspection =_= - Averus Retruthan

Shadows Of The Sith(SOTS) Darth Maul(DM)

sotsdmversion_1.00.zip | 46.75 MB

everything that Darth Maul did in the movie, with the exception that you invade Theed, where in the movie you were already in it, and in this you win. There are several missions in this mod, and I must say that the win/lose menu really confused me. It was the same message whether you died or won, and the menu was exactly the same. You could choose any mission to start with, so you could kill Qui Gon and then go fight him again. What kind of sense does that make? It doesn’t matter, I’d just like it more if you were forced to do the missions in a linear fashion. The maps were simple, but the author does point out that he did most, if not all of putting this together by himself. The cinematics were simple, but at least there were cinematics for this. But in the majority this was a pretty fun total conversion, and is part of a series that is yet to be finished. So download it and try it out! ~Zach

characters become the \'bad\' ones, but it also makes some other minor changes, such as only being able to choose a red bladed saber from the saber menu. To be honest, I personally wasn\'t thrilled with this mod. I\'ve seen this sort of thing done before, multiple times. However, for those who still play the single player game, and want a slightly new experience, give it a download and have fun with it. I\'ll wait for another version with more features.

Neo Dark Ages - Version A3.16

neo_dark_ages.txt | 177 B

the download link only!*** Well, what a treat we have for you today! The long awaited Neo Dark Ages mod is here and it looks fantastic! As you can probably guess from the title of the mod and a cursory glance at the screenshots below, this is a dark ages/middle ages themed mod with the ever present fantasy twist. [b]Maps[/b] There are only two maps included here, a small mountain/canyon type map and a much larger medieval village type map. The mapping work on both is very good, though it is in some aspects a little blocky and some of the textures a little lower resolution that they probably should be, but it isn’t anything major and they are both very good. The village map is most certainly my favourite as it captures the fantasy/medieval village theme perfectly. Plenty of old wooden buildings placed on multiple levels with rocky outcrops and huge walls. The gate in the middle wall even has a dragon (!!) blocking the path. I did attack the dragon, but for some reason it did not cause me any damage, so I do not know whether that is a bug. That brings me on to the next major feature, probably my favourite part of the whole mod... [b]Weapons[/b] The weapons are, in a word, amazing. Some of the best weapon modelling, texturing, effects, and sounds I have ever seen. Not only is there a huge variety to choose from such as; axes, warhammers, swords, shields, pikes, banners and an assortment of more fantasy themed things like mystic looking tree branches and daggers. There are many more variations of each of these weapons to choose from as well. And that's only the melee weapons! For ranged weapons there is a crossbow which fires flaming arrows, a tree branch type thing that shoots mystical green energy balls, a dragon which sits on your back and breathes fire, and angelic wing that sits on your back and shoots angelic energy and a staff that shoots lightning bolts. Wait, I haven’t finished yet! Then there is a strange mechanical looking device which shoots balls of cosmic energy accompanied by effects that look like exploding galaxies when they hit and even a cross which shoots cross shaped bolts of energy. Yes I do mean a crucifix. A strange weapon to replace the Bryar Pistol, but it was kind of fun! The visual effects for these weapons are all new and custom made and the sound effects compliment the weapons wonderfully and sound amazing. I have to say I had quite a lot of fun firing the crossbow at the bullseye targets lined up in the village map. Though I think the arrows disappear too quickly afterwards, I do not know if it is possible to make the 'arrow stuck in target' effect to last longer, but I think it would be good if this was possible, as the arrows had a habit of disappearing before I could run to the target to check my aim! I can imagine this could be a very fun game itself for people to play on servers using this mod! [b]Skins[/b] There are a massive amount of skins to choose from. Knights in armour, animal skin clad barbarians, wizardy looking fellows and assassins. Not to mention the fact that you can also customise your own character using a variety of parts from the customisation menu. As with the weapons, all of the skinning here is top notch work, high resolution and packed with detail. [b]Everything Else[/b] There are many other smaller parts of the mod, which nevertheless are just as important as the large parts like skins and weapons. The main menu in particular is worthy of special note. It still has the same layout as the base JKA menu but is almost completely unrecognisable. It looks very much like an astrolabe and the moving 'cogs' in the center circle look really unique and I loved the overall feel of the menus. As for music, that two has its own unique feel that fits very well with the theme of the mod, though personally I would have preferred something a little more cinematic, Lord of the Rings perhaps? That’s just me though! Of course, no medieval setting would be complete without a trusty steed for the Knight, and yes, this mod does have ridable horses! The animation and modelling is great, but I would like to see a more open map that has plenty of space to ride the horses in, or maybe even a jousting arena? ;) [b]Conclusion[/b] This is a very unique mod and definitely worth a download. It has been in production for a long, long time; I remember looking in on the NDA website a couple of years ago out of curiosity so its great to see it come to fruition! That said this is still only an Alpha version and it has great potential to be expanded. There are quite a few features, like demo recording, a speedometer (!) and a zombie siege type mode (!!) among others! Be sure to check out the readme file for the full low down! The main thing I would probably suggest for the next version is to add a couple more maps as two isn’t very many compared to the amount of weapons and skins. Overall though I think this is very well polished for a mod that is still in alpha! Keep up the excellent work guys, you have something pretty special here, it just needs to be expanded upon! :D ~Nozyspy~ ***Please note that due to the size of this file, we could not upload it to JKFiles directly. Please download it from here! The main download link at the bottom of the page contains a dummy file with the download link only!***

is pretty minor, but even so, yay for bug fixes. Here's what was fixed: [quote]- SP: Force Power Menu / Weapon Select / Bonus Style Selection Glitch: this was causing an issue when trying to select force powers and weapon selections when the user increased their saber offense. I have reworked the sequence which now forces the Bonus Style Selection to occur immediately after Force Power Selection. -SP: Mission Video Glitch: repaired the issue where Luke or Kyle start speaking immediately after a mission is complete. Now the Mission Complete screen pops up and they only start speaking once OKAY is pressed.[/quote] Considering the 1000+ downloads on the last release, this should make a fair amount of people happy. Go forth and enjoy. One note: you will need 0.9.5 installed prior to installing this. This package contains only the update; the actual mod is not included in here. -Caelum

STEAMPUNK_TEASER_PACK

Obscura (awesome game)...but I digress. For those who have no idea what I'm babbling about, here's what Wikipedia says: [quote]The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used (...) but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy[/quote] This [i]teaser[/i] pack contains a steampunkified weapon and a steampunkified skin. [b]Steamtrooper[/b] As you can see on screenshot #1, a very spiffy looking, slightly rusty, steampunkified snowtrooper. It's a separate skin, so it doesn't overwrite anything. Not to mention it has team support. My only possible gripe is the lack of stormtrooper sounds. Nice job though ;) [b]Starzapper[/b] As you can see on screenshot #2, this is a steampunk E-11 reskin. It comes with some very neat sounds & effects, and gives me a tendency to run off to the first server with guns enabled I can find. My only gripe? StarZapper.pk3 makes the Bryar blaster pistol go textureless; presumably a bug. Now go download if you like the way these look, or I shall be forced to smack you with a spoon. -Caelum

Order Of The Jedi -- Yoda Demo

Featuring several new features in 2 new levels based from the movies. Play as Jedi Master Yoda and save your fellow Jedi Allies against the evil Count Dooku. Find the password and unlock it on the Password menu, to unlock a secret level.[/quote] Like it says, you play as Jedi Master Yoda and you fight Count Dooku to save your Jedi Allies (Obi-Wan and Anakin) When you begin the mission 'An Old Friend' it starts off with a 2-3 second movie of a republic gunship flying through geonosis. I had only two dislikes about this: 1) There was no sound. (2) It was a very low quality movie. But, it was only 2-3 seconds and so it doesn't matter too much. You then run through the landing platform and hear one of the two jedi dying. Count Dooku is there standing and you fight one another. After you kill him a short movie plays of him running into his ship. Then, you see him die on the floor in front of you (o_O) I then didn't know what to do. I started looking around trying to find out what happens next. I still had no luck and so I ran back to where I started from and saw a clone trooper and a republic gunship outside the platform. When you approach the clone trooper he tells you the password for the next level. I won't say what happens in the next level, as it is a secret :) I don't know what happens after you complete the secret level because I died every time. Also, there is a BLOCK command you can do with the saber, which seems to work.. sort of. You can parry their attacks by holding the BLOCK button and moving into the direction of their attack. It didn't work too well for me with Yoda, likely because of his height :P Cheats also seem to be disabled in the last level ( :( ) So, if you are interested in this modification or just want to recreate the battle of Episode II, give it a download! - Dommie

Hercules & Xena Skin Pack

hercules_xena_mod_for_jk3.zip | 51.42 MB

adds/replaces a whole bunch of skins with their Xena or Hercules counterparts. Don't ask me why Luke=Hercules or why the rebel pilot is now a Mon Mothma reskin that still has a man's voice... these details are beyond me. What I do know is that I apparently didn't watch Xena long enough to know who all these characters are, or what they're supposed to look like. I do know what Xena and Hercules are supposed to look like, though, and I can tell you right off the bat that no base assets model is going to be able to capture either of them... and I wasn't too far off. Most of the skins here actually are a little off, mostly because the faces are one notch down from blasphemy. It's like the author put a [i]lot[/i] of effort into [i]adding[/i] all this stuff, but very little into [i]refining[/i] it. Most of the faces are not quite lined up -- a lot of the mouths don't match the mouth on the model, so when they talk they look silly -- and a lot of skin tones between meshes don't match. And don't even ask me why you would skin an arm texture over a poofy sleeve. [i]That[/i] one I can't begin to fathom. Long story short, this needs a lot of work and a lot more attention before it's playable in an enjoyable fashion. As a big Xena fan myself, I'd love to see a great Xena skin. The one here only has a passing resemblance to Lucy Lawless, which is for me at least a big disappointment for what could be a very interesting mod, if the author would take the extra time, work out the kinks, and really place the appropriate emphasis on the details. The big picture is all good and fine, but without the details it's more of a sketch than a portrait. ~Inyri

Shaman King TC Mod

shamankingtcmod_beta.rar | 733.24 KB

not to watch. (The very name sounded handicapped, no offense.) This pack isn't that bad, but since I didn't understand what was with the dome, I couldn't say what it is. I leave it to the masses who understand the crazy egg-like device. I did like the slight shielding thing. XD The modelling wasn't bad at all. The only thing bad with this was that the skinning job was poor. Then again, the author mentions this is a beta, so this hopefully will not be the final skinning job. Also, two of the six replacements did not work. I'd advise an adjustment of the .sab files and/or the directories to solve this. Moreover, I'm not sure if this was intended or not, but the blades were showing through the sword. If that was not the case, I'd turn those off. Finally, I'd advise an adjustment of the tag on the default katana without the egg as it is being held at an awkward angle. All in all, It has promise. Like I said, I never watched Shaman King, but this seems to be an interesting mod. At its current state, I'd advise an offering of bandwidth to all interested in Shaman King, but all are welcome to check it out. - Averus Retruthan
