As many of you know, I'm not a big fan of startup screens. This is probably because I don't start up JK2 through the startup screen, but I rather startup MP or SP separately.
That said, I hope it helps you understand how impressive I found this startup to be. This is easily the best startup screen I have seen yet. As you can see from the screenie, this is nothing more than a closeup of Darth Maul's face, withthe JK2 logo re-done in new text.
Simple, elegant, menacing, wonderful job. 'Nuff said!
On my personal scale it gets a 9. If John Leitner had given it reddish buttons to match, I'd say it can't get any better than that. Well done!
If the other screens promised in the readme are this good, then John has seriously raised the bar on startup screen design! I say it time and time again...simple is most effective!
New Background: Yes New Buttons: No New Sounds: No
README FILE for Darth Maul Startup Screen ------------------ INSTALLATION Just replace the file Product (in this ZIP) with the one in programfiles/lucasarts/star wars JK II Jedi Outcast/install (make sure to keep the file named as Product or it wont work) Delete (or remove) the product file in the install folder first then extrack the one in this ZIP file to install (they can't be in the same folder at once). ------------------ File Info Well it is a very simple startup screen (simple is always better) and they don't take too long to make. ------------------ My Info Name: John Leitner Website: None E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org ------------------ Extra Notes Just remember these startup screens are my FIRST files I have ever made and they were made using Paint so please don't say anything bad thanx. The reason I made these was there wasnt any good startup screens that I liked so I thought I might as well make my own and I am glad with all the ones I made (so far) More Startup Screens To Come: 2 More Maul's, 2 Plo Koon's, 2 Vader's, 1 Luke Skywalker, 1 Jango Fett, 1 Qui-Gon Jinn, 1 Obi-Wan Kenobi and 1 Yoda. Startup Screens I Still Have To Make: Count Dooku, Mace Windu and Anakin Skywalker (maybe some others if I have time). ------------------ I don't know what to put here so just no copyrighting and stuff.
