I was just wondering. I have a few pretty cool weapon models, such as rusted saber hilt, and this big sword model (to replace saber). How do i make it so that a certain NPC (such as desann) has that sword without making everyone have it? The one i am trying to use, is the sword model from cloud.zip, and use it for the NPC reborn. I don't want all the reborns, but just the main reborn. -thx (HaLLa/$!n$)

by main reborn, do you mean just one reborn in a certain map? or do you mean the reborn_boss?

Well HaLLa, is this for jedi outcast or jedi academy and is it for single player or multiplayer mode? If it's for JO, you might be in for a rough ride. If its for JA, it is very easy to acomplish what you want to do. And generally speaking, single player is a LOT easyer to change than multiplayer (although I'm sure you knew this already).

In both JO and JA, there are within the base folder some assets#.pk3's (program files\lucas arts\Jedi Academy\GameData\base if installed in the default location). For JA its the assets1.pk3 you need to look at, and for JO its the assets0.pk3 (I beleave). Open this .pk3 with winzip or Pakscape (which is a better tool). Now once you open the .pk3 you'll see a bunch of folders (botfile, gfx, effects, etc). The folder called "ext_data" (for JA) is the one you need to alter.

Now within that folder are other folders listed. The one called "npcs" is the one which holds all the npc's within the game such as luke, kyle, and desaan. In their .npc files, at the top are some lines which say's :

weapon WP_SABER saber single_1

For JA all you need to do is change the name of the saber to the one you want the NPC to use, like from "single_1" to say "desaan" or "duel_2" for example. Thats it. Just replace the .npc file with your new one and save it. Now the npc that you chose will now use the saber you specified. For JO, it's very difficult to have just one npc use a particular saber without all of the same type's of npc (IE reborns) using it. In JA, each npc is listed seperatly, so making changes to one will not nessasarilly effect the others. Not so for JO, sorry.

If you have JO insted, my only suggestions are look at the forums here using the search button, and/or quit JO and get JA. Nearlly all skins made for JO work in JA, and changing JA to do what you want is a thousand times easyer, not to mention more satisfing, than changing JO. I hope this help's some...............

well, i knew most of that already, but i got lost at

Now within that folder are other folders listed. The one called "npcs" is the one which holds all the npc's within the game such as luke, kyle, and desaan. In their .npc files, at the top are some lines which say's :

weapon WP_SABER saber single_1

, because i have opened the npc.cfg (as i have a ton of times before), but, as before, have not seen anything that says weapon WP_SABER, or saber single_1. Or was that for JA? Well, nvm, i'll search the forums then, l8er. ^_^

yes. that was for JA. I'm not sure how you could do it so it would only change 1 reborn for JO. I know how do it for all of them, but you probably do to.

I don't have a screenname, but you can email me at [email="wfuqua@indy.rr.com"]wfuqua@indy.rr.com[/email]. I can help you with JA, but JK2 is a little harder for me to help, because I got rid of the game when JA came out. (i'm still kicking myself for that one!). If I remember correctly go to models->weapons2 and you will see list of weapons, with names like saber_desann. Try messing with these to get the results you want. I think there is only one saber that all the reborn use, but I may be incorrect. If you are trying to replace the saber hilts for a certain type of reborn in games that raven released I don't think it can be done. I know, however, it can be done in maps that you are making. To do a forum search there is a button in the top of the window that says search. Click on it and then click advanced search, and scroll down in the bottom left window so it selects JK2 or JA. then you can search by keyword or user name. Feel free to private message or email me if you need further help. To private message a user, click on the users name and then click "View public profile." From there you can follow a link to private message the user. Just thought I would mention that when someone helps you, it is in good taste to click this little button in the top right corner of their post reputation.gif. It allows you to "reward them" for their good information. Not that I'm adding any subtle hints here or anything.:naughty: By the way, when you want to post multiple times in the same thread in rapid succession, like you did above, click the "edit" button (in the lower righthand corner of your post. This allows you to edit your previous post. It just keeps things looking a little neater. Some people can get mad if you don't. You can only edit your post 15 minutes after you post. Sometimes a moderator will come and merge your posts for you. Hope this helps!
