Mmkay, so sometimes we get these SP mods that just combine a few other mods together along with some skins or different models and voila - you have a brand new game. Right? Mmm ... not so much. You have the same single player game, with a new face. Dressed up a bit. Sure, Jan as a reskin of Mara Jade is much easier on the eyes and having unlimited ammo is a plus for some, but overall, there's nothing new here. The author calls it a total conversion, but there's no new story, no new maps - just the appearance of the characters and weapons and other effects have changed.
If you are interested in playing JK2 SP all over again, but you want a twist to it, I do suggest you download a single player mod. Would I suggest this one? I'm not so sure. I did test it and the game did crash. :/ But maybe that won't happen to you. :) There's a lot included with this mod, be sure you look at the readme ... it's all there. That's one thing I have to note. The readme included here is like, the most thorough readme EVER. Oh, I should also mention that this mod is approximately 60MB ... so ... yeah.
Ps. I wrote my review before I realized that this was an update to a previous version. My opinion still hasn't changed. This is just a replacement of characters and effects and not necessarily worth the almost 60MB download - but it still looks great. :)
************************************* JEDI KNIGHT II MODIFICATION Dragon Remix: EndGame Edition A Jedi Outcast MOD assembled by Covax Presented by Writer's Block Media ************************************* Title : Dragon Remix: Endgame Edition Author : Covax, various others (see Source) Web Page : http://www.writersblockmedia.com Author E-Mail : Covax@Rogers.com File Name : DREndgameEdition.pk3 File Size : 60 Mb Date Released : 23/09/2003 [And now for a word from our sponsor] Be on the lookout for the the Star Wars fanfilm The Planet With No Name, where I did the fight choreography and screenplay. Out November 29th! [Story] The final Evolution of the Dragon Remix MOD, combining the BEST Single-Player mod for Jedi Outcast. If interest is high enough I'll release the updated multiplayer game and weapons add-ons. Now I can get to work on some Jedi Academy mods... This is a 'total conversion' of the Single Player experience. There are no new maps, although it's a fun mod to use in conjuction with fan-made SP maps. - Vanguard and Anatares (aka Kyle and Jan) have sabers and force powers at begining. - Most of the skins, weapon models and effects have been changed in some way. - You'll see a bunch of cameos from Writer's Block Media and the original Blade Mod crew. - Red and Blue sword styles are now Desann's and Tavion's respectively - Sparks and smoke replaced by blood. Stumps are dark red rather than yellow. - Better acrobatics: Cartwheel and Butterfly Kick relaces the rolls. - Cooler pistol-firing animation (in my oppinon) - Jump: 'Force Jump' style and 'Force Getup'. - Dismemberment is now fully enabled. This also has the effect of making the swords very lethal. - Every one of the weapons leaves the cool glowing mark that the disruptor usually leaves. - Force Lightning replaced with a Fire effect. [Instructions] Unpack in your /GameData/ folder. A DragonRemix folder should be created. Either use the attached .BAT file or activate under Options->Mods in the starup screen.

'President Scroob' by Yar Cydoh 'Kyle to Jango Partial Armor' by Lightsaber6458 'Zehn' by ?? 'Xander' by ?? This MOD is a compilation of several other MODs, those being edited/altered versions of: 'Jedi Master Mod' by Osiris 'JediMoves Basic' by Master D-Ley Amas 'Han Shooting Animation' by tFighterPilot 'Ultimate Blood' by StrWrsXprt and Desann 'Hyper Weapons Mod' by WeedWhacker 'Weapon Alterations' by Joruus C B'oath the 2nd 'Flamethrower beta v.1' by Dark Reaper 'DS-Reticles2' by Dreamstation [Errors/Bugs] 1 - Like other models modification this MOD will NOT work correctly with saved games - the weapons will be bound to the wrong bone. It works fine if you start up a map through the console, or start the game from the beginning. 2 - I have NO idea how this mod will effect other MODS. It works fine with other Single Player levels that have no conflicting skin/model changes. By default remove/rename the NPCs.cfg file in one of the mods and everything should work fine. 3 - There may be a problem in the Besbin Streets level. The 3rd Reborn encounter, by the landing platform, dosen't seem to work. You may have to NOLCIP your way though the door to continue. [Legal Disclamer] 1 - Knowing me I probably forgot someone. If you see elemets of you own work in this MOD that has nto been cretited let me know ASAP and I'll provide due credit. 2 - In no way am I suggesting that I sigularly created any of the skins or models. I don't plan to take credit for this MOD, rather I just want to push for more SP MODs. 3 - Fell free to use any aspect of this MOD, but know full well that it's based on other people's work. Contact me for credit questions. ********************************************* THIS MODIFICATION IS NOT MADE, DISTRIBUTED, OR SUPPORTED BY ACTIVISION, RAVEN, OR LUCASARTS ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY LLC.
