so I've got a Yoda character model that I got from jk2files.com, but does anyone know how to properly resize him for use in multiplayer in Jedi Academy? any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
you need a tckmodel sizer thingy which can only be found in mods, so we will have to wait until one is released with it.
Can't you simply scale him properly by altering the "yoda.npc" file, which would be located within the ext_data/npcs folder, if one existed?
When I bring JO skins, models over to JA, I alway's make a .npc file for the character. I have no idea if JA .npc files function in multiplayer (as I have yet to play that mode) as they do in single player. If I was using yoda for a SP game, resizing him would be a sinch.
Would this work for multiplayer? If so, there's your answer. If not, sorry for wasting your time........... Hope this helps you out.

It's a good idea, but my theory is that it won't work. In Multiplayer, he would no longer be an NPC, since he'd be controlled by a player.
However, I do not speak from experience. So I could be wrong. Has anyone tried this? and can you shed some light on this situation?
JA doesn't allow model scaling in MP by default, simply because it'd be unbalanced: Smaller characters are harder to hit.
That's too bad "GothiX". You would figure the people at lucasarts would have learned something from all the mods which have been created which take advantage of "realistic" scaling in regards to saber battles.
Smaller characters, while harder to hit, could be balanced by the fact that they also caused less damage. The opposite was true for larger characters, (easier to hit, but they caused more damage in battles).
Oh well, someone I'm sure will figured this problem out sooner or later.......... Sooner I hope.............

In that case you can make a character the size of an ant, unhittable, that'd take a while to do damage but is virtually invincible. Maybe they diodn't want that to happen?
yeah you got a point there...
i have a mod scaler... if u want it instant message me on msn or aim msn= [email="email@example.com"]firstname.lastname@example.org[/email] AIM= ho0 sh0t cha (the caps are zeros there not capital o's the lower case r o's tho, if ur having trouble just copy and paste it then)
i think scaled models would be good if the model comes with it then u have the right model size with out cheating plus it could be balanced then no ant sized cheaters.... does that make sense?
