The ROQ videos are screwed up, really
Ah well that sucks. But I found that link I mentioned, here it is: http://forums.filefront.com/sw-jk3-modding-mapping-editing/221961-how-make-roq-video.html
Again it probably doesn't cover anything you don't already know.

I hope it isn't either one of the files I found on jk3files, they are just noghri reskins and don't look great at all.
Are you really only wanting to do the main battles and that's it? I was hoping to recreate the full game, it's very much doable without any coding, just need maps, models, some scripting and the cutscenes converted. Perhaps for the cutscene problem rather than converting the original files you can just record over them as new files.
Yes, I will do only the duels. But, hey, it will be good. We need to work and work. I have a lot ot free time so I am determined to make this mod. But maybe someday this mod turns out to be a complete Dark Forces 2 mod. But we need a modding team. Our team is just three people. We need help! I just need to do some NPC work and the pre-alpha version is done. I need your opinion, about the Dark Jedi HP. What must it be? Just say what is the best HP for Yun, Boc and Jerec. Trail said that their original HP were 500 for Yun (1000 in the second time, if you are a Dark Jedi), 1500 for Boc and 2000 for Jerec.
Also, we need to make a logo and a splash screen for the mod. I have some skills in Fireworks and Paint.NET, but I cannot think of something good.
Stevenus, I followed that tutorial. It doesn't work because SMACKER has a quality higher than ROQ.
Well, to save some time with mapping, I remember some duel map that came out recently on jk3files of the area where you fight Yun in df2. Maybe you could ask the author if you can use his map instead of making one from scratch?
I know it, it is Showdown at Barons Hed (duel_sabh), made by Plasma. He also made the Valley of the Jedi. It is for Movie Battles 2, so, I will go to their forum and ask Plasma if I can use it. Maybe he can even help me!
And I received a e-mail from Mr. Whinery, permission granted for DF2 Kyle, PM'd Darth Phae, who did the Dark Forces 2 Skin Pack. I just NEED Darth Ayreon to give me permission for using Rahn.
Ah, and Stevenus, I see that you are very good with mapmaking and menu scripting. Can you join us?
I'm only in on making a TC for DF2 and you're skimping out and wanting to use old low quality stuff like those reskins that only slightly resemble the DF2 characters.
I may be able to contribute something, if time allows it. I'll do a quick refresher of my DF2 duel locations and maybe I'll come up with something.
That's okay. I can send you some of DF2 maps screenshots, if you want.
Minilogue, the only skins that don't resemble DF2 characters are Yun, Boc and Maw. And we don't have Gorc and Pic. So if you want to create five Dark Jedi from scratch, go on. It won't be a easy work, but for sure it will be a LOT better than the old DF2 Skin Pack. No, SIX models. It includes Maw with legs.
Also, I will try to contact someone from the big ol' Dark Forces 2 Mod project.
Raz0r, thanks for merging the double posts.
The ModDB page is just awaiting
And I PM'd Plasma in the Movie Battles forum, he was online and he didn't read my question. He is a blind man.
Also, what do you think about a new (old) HUD? I thought in recreating the Dark Forces 2 HUD into Jedi Academy.
I have a suggestion, how about scripting cutscenes with BeHaved instead of taking the old live-action ones? It would be a LOT better that way. I'm pretty good at making cutscenes, so I could do it, if that's ok with you.
You're mad! The live action cut scenes were the coolest part of JK and besides, you'll have to find a handful of convincing voice actors to fill all the roles.
