I have two levels done, and some of the MP code done as well. I need some testers (preferably ones who have a solid grip on what makes a level great, such as mappers, or JK2Files reviewers). I'll allow for 5 slots, which I will do on a trial-basis.
Testers will be able to access the first two levels of my mod, and later in the testing cycle (once I have the third level/fourth cinematic level, as well as code for MP largely done) I will give more levels available, and perhaps an MP test.
The preview edition (which is what will be the first release) will have the first three levels of the mod (ac_one, ac_two, ac_three), the fourth cinematic level (ac_four) which shows a turning point in the story (The Jedi Academy being overwhelmed by Imperial forces, it becoming the Sith Academy, Luke creating an underground resistance force, evolution of the Soultrooper and Kyle's life in the cell, shortly before breaking out), and my effects mod which has high-res saber effects, sounds, force effects, JK2-esque force power icons (Mind trick, Grip, Lightning and Heal being restored to their blue hue a la JK2SP), and some other things I can't remember.
Understand that by having the preview edition, you may not publicly release the files, and you are limited in who you give the mod away to (it is a closed beta, after all.).
If you wish to become part of the beta, send me a private message on the forums, email me, or post in this thread (and I will PM you)
Is this going to be a total conversion type of mod?
I'd be happy to test this, sounds interesting, I haven't seen a good SP mod in a while... except maybe Eve of Redemption, but I'd be happy to test it for you!
Nozyspy;5223949Is this going to be a total conversion type of mod?
Yes. It's going to feature a singleplayer campaign (and after the full version is out, I'll make expansion sets to the singleplayer) as well as class-based online multiplayer. So far, I have this much done: - 2 levels (minus dialogue) - Saber effects and sounds (I've got only the blue saber done to my liking, I need to tweak the others) - Enhanced force power effect (It's more of a soft glow, rather than tiny crescents) - Some MP code done (class structure is done, need to force models on each class) And I have this much work ahead of me: - 12+ levels (including dialogue for ac_one/ac_two) - Finish multiplayer code - Menus - revised text crawl - some extra multiplayer maps (up to 15) - uniform force power icons (all of them blue, rather than blue/white/red) - possibly rewrite dialogue - voice actors - going to remix some music (I'm thinking if I mix Apocalyptica/Star Wars, this will be a cool effect) I have 4 slots open.
Once again, if you still need people to test, I'm up for it.
I'll offer to beta test the single player portion of your mod. I don't play mp at all so I have a good grasp on the single player side of JA. Though I'm not a mapper I have beta'd a couple of maps elsewhere.
It's ok if I'm not a first round pick too.
I'm a great tester, but I don't have a whole lot of time these days. If you can't find enough people, sign me up as well. ;)
I'm going to leave some time for more potential testers to reply to this thread before I will choose my testers.
