http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rM27KeIZRxs This isn't the "Real Deal". None of this was made by Activision, Lucasarts, or Raven. It's a Jedi Academy SP mod. I'm not making any guarantees here - either I might finish it, might not, might hand it off to someone with a little more experience, or something else.

What you see here is a text crawl. It isn't like JA's though, as you might have seen. In addition to there being new content, the format has also been changed to match the movies. (Because someone at Raven decided it to be funny funny funny hahaha business to use JA's Arial font instead of what Lucasarts uses).

Like? Dislike? Need improvement? Yeah, I'm pretty sure of that. It needs to be rewritten to sound more poetic/epic, right now it's just barely cutting it.

Sorry about the video quality, I recorded using XFire, so it makes the video chunky. Couldn't put sound because it's too chunky. :(

There's too much vague detail in the title crawl. Why not leave it at Kyle knows jan has been captured, and kyle gets captured/has to learn what happened/escape.

The idea is that this is a spinoff of Dark Forces 2 - What happens if Kyle chooses the dark side instead of the light side? (Which has been implied, since JK2). That's in the text crawl. I suppose I could modify it to not include it.

Important note: if Kyle went to the dark side, Jan is dead and Kyle becomes Emperor.

It's true; that was pretty shocking to see him kill Jan =p

What's the difference?

My point being that there was a dark side ending which does not seem to have been taken into consideration at all for this mod.

So you want to make a mod of what happened if Kyle fell to the dark side, based on Dark Forces 2, but completely disregard the dark side story arc from Dark Forces 2? :confused:

In any case, regardless of what you choose, I'd say revise the crawl. It doesn't have that... something. Hard to describe, but it just doesn't have the right feel.

It needs to be 3 paragraphs instead of four and it needs a few more big words. Is that what you're getting at?
