Keep the old voice files, but make new cutscenes. Btw, the old cutscenes were just "funny", besides, he is trying to "update" the game, not keep it exactly the same, right?

JA's graphics aren't that great. The cut scenes also helped with the games great story by bringing the characters to life.

Who cares about graphics? What I was saying, is that in-game cutscenes are better than live action ones. But, I guess it's up to Jeff Katarn.

No way I'm going to recreate the cutscenes. The people of the old Dark Forces 2 mod transformed the cutscenes to ROQ. They posted that in the news. They wouldn't do that if they didn't do a good job. I MUST convert that cutscenes to ROQ. There is a way to do this, the only problem is, I do not know.

Ah, and, answering to your question, I WILL recreate DF2's duels with the JA engine and graphics. And, I assure you, it will be a good recreate. And, I need some help to advance with the menu scripting and I need to forge some menu images 'cause I am not that good with Fireworks and I only managed to do the main menu. Can you help me?

minilogoguy18;5447912I'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.

Owch minilogoguy you hurt my feelings. lol

Anyways yeah I agree with you. You should definitely try using the old DF2 cutscenes if you can. :D

Why use the old? You are trying to re-create the levels and characters, so why not the cutscenes?

The levels and characters are completely different from the cutscenes. You can play as a Dark Forces 2 Kyle (By Mr. Alias) with completely new graphics against a high quality Jerec model (made by Phae) in a Valley of the Jedi with many perfect effects (made by Plasma). You can't play as Jason Court and you cannot give Jerec's sabre to him and slay him as he activates his lightsabre. You can't. And, besides that, you can't compare a game's graphics to live actions scenes, no way.

And Phae, Minilogue said that because he only said the Maw with Legs model, and a old Maw. He didn't see your skin pack. But it is a shame that your skin pack didn't have Gorc and Pic.

Mini's got a decent point here. There's just some sort of magic from those cutscenes you can't replicate with JA's cutscene workings. It just wouldn't fit.

I already know that 'cause I've seen that when I tried to convert the AVI cutscenes to ROQ. The AVI cutscenes were fine, but the ROQ were terrible. It must be something with the frames cycling, frames per second, effects, something that I don't know. But the old DF2 modders knew that and fixed that. I am saying again, they wouldn't post that they converted the cutscenes in the news if they didn't make a good job.

Link to skin pack?

I've seen Yun which is decent but still looks too much like Jaden which was why I was stressing the point of new content.
