Here's my review of the previous version
Oh My Lord... I am utterly shocked by the total uber greatness of possibly the best model made for JKA so far! We all know Darth Vader, Daddy of Luke Skywalker and the character who made star wars so popular (in my opinion of course), Mars has captured Vader PERFECTLY in everyway from the shine on his helmet, the real-like textures on his cape and the metal parts on the suit, it all looks marvellously realistic. It was a treat to go into the game and run around in game with this fantastic model, it's a model that everyone would surely like, even if they don't use it they'll download it. The sounds are there, when you roll he does the whole machine-breathing thing, there are team colors, an unmasked version, which looks amazingly accurate, and even a white Vader version!
This is a true treat for anyone who plays this game, Mars and Psyko have done an awesome job. Download this or I will have to use Level 3 Force-Poke-With-Stick on you.
New Sounds: Yes Bot Support; Indeed Team Support: Yeah!
Darth Daddy's Back, version 2.2 include LOTS more stuff than version one. One of the very few complaints about version one was the eyes, although alot liked them a few didn't saying how they didn't match the real vader. In this version, there are multiple Vader skins you can choose from, the episode III suit, the original trilogy suit and the others like white, no mask, default (yeah with them cool eyes), red and blue (which have been improve greatly).
As well as a few little bug fixes and NPC support (there's a few NPC's you can spawn), there is now 'troop' support. Explained in the readme, in singleplayer you can spawn stormtroopers and get them to follow you. HOW COOL IS THAT?.
I don't think the model could get any better, 10/10.
New Sounds: Yes Bot Support; Yes Team Support: Yes NPC Support: Yes Troop Support: Yes Everything Else: Yes
*************************** JEDI KNIGHT ACADEMY MODIFICATION *************************** Title :VaderVM 2.2 Modeling/Skins :Mars Marshall "NeoMarz1" Sounds :NeoMarz1 Animations/Weighting :PsykoPat Website :http://www.geocities.com/[email protected]/ File Name :VaderVM2.2.pk3 File Size :1.90MB Date Released :4/12/2005 ****Description**** : Fixes since 2.0: Darkened Torso and Legs on VaderEp3 (Minor skin fixes). Fixed Kilt to dcapeep3 error. This is basically the VaderVM model with a lot of extra things. First I added NPC (Non Player Character) support for use in single and multiplayer (with cheats activated)... This allows Vader to act more theatricelly, He now walks around, turns saber on and off, while taunting you. On top of all this, The NPC is scaled to Vader's actual height! (keep in mind that this only works on NPC's) New sounds have been added, but really these are used by the NPC only. Plus I added a few more varients. The varients represent the slight changes that took place during the run of all the episodes. First we have Vader from "a new hope", then "VM" which covers Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi. Then last but not least Star Wars Episode 3! Also I added support for "Akane Syria's ROTJ vader saber". For Saber support you will need to download this saber at http://jediknight2.filefront.com/file/Darth_Vaders_ROTJ_Lightsaber;36296 If you have downloaded this saber it will appear in any of the NPC's hands. I also added a few extra NPC's that were made just to be fun. Like "little vader", "big vader", "dark luke", and a "witch mercenary". Special additions in 2.2 Vader now has troop support in single player! Read "How to lead a Battalion" instructions below. Troopsupport includes "bounty hunter, stormtroopers, and imperial protocol droid. Single Player support read instructions below. ******************************READ THIS BEFORE PLAYING*************************************** Installation: First make sure you have removed the old VaderVm file (if you have installed the old VaderVM). Next place VaderVM2.2.pk3 into the "StarWars JediKnight Jedi Academy/GameData/basefolder". Instructions: 1) In order to use NPC's you will need to acivate cheats heres how you do it. Singleplayer- Once your in the game, hit "shift and tild (~)" to activate the console. Next type "devmapall" (or devmap t1sour)...hit enter (cheats are now on)...next type "npc spawn (the npc's name)" Example: npc spawn vadervm (or littlevader, vaderhope, vaderep3, ect...). Here are the npc model names for this pack (With a brief description)... playervader (use this npc if you want to play as vader in singleplayer!) vadervm vaderhope vaderep3 vaderduel littlevader bigvader vaderboxer darkadept1 darkadept2 darkluke witchmerc goodtrooper (storm trooper acts as freindly support) goodhunter (rodian bounty acts as freindly support) goodslave (imperial protocol acts as a sidekick) Note: you must enter one of the above names when spawning your npc. cont... close the console by hitting the tild (~) again. Multiplayer- To activate cheats, you do thing a little different. activate the console by hitting shift+tild(~). Next type /devmapall "mapname". Example: /devmapall mp/duel1. The map will load with cheats activated. Open the console again and type /npc spawn "npc's name". Example: /npc spawn vadervm... Notice that single player you have to put the "/" slash before the command. Here are the npc model names for this pack (With a brief description)... vadervm vaderhope vaderep3 vaderduel littlevader bigvader vaderboxer darkadept1 darkadept2 darkluke witchmerc Note: you must enter one of the above names when spawning your npc. cont... close the console by hitting the tild (~) again. ************************ How to lead a Battalion: ************************ 1) Becoming Vader: Start up "Single Player" and activate cheats. Singleplayer- Once your in the game, hit "shift and tild (~)" to activate the console. Next type "devmapall"...hit enter (cheats are now on)...next type "playermodel playervader" (without quotes) 2) Assembling Troop Support: Next you need to spawn supporting NPC's (open the console again "shift and tild") and type "npc spawn goodtrooper" ... You now have a storm trooper who will follow and aid you. 3) Spawning troops on command: Now you may want to spawn troopers by just pushing a single key (that way you dont have to keep typing in the spawn command).... Here's how you do it. (open console again) now type "bind i npc spawn goodtrooper", now exit the console. Every time you hit the "i" key, a fresh trooper will spawn. You can bind any key you like, I just chose to use "i". 4) Other troop support... You can use the spawn npc command for these characters as well. goodhunter (rodian bounty support) goodslave (imperial droid) *Keep in mind that troop support only works in Single Player (where they will follow you). *choose levels that NPC's can easily follow you, Otherwise they may get trapped. ***Trouble shoot*** Usually there are only a few errors make that cause problems. Here are the most common... 1) Not removing the old VaderVm file. 2) Not using the proper console commands for "Single Player" or "Multiplayer"... cheats are acivated differently for each. Read "Instructions" up above. 3) Having the pk3 placed in the wrong folder. Special Thanks to "Szico VII" for giving me a little help in understanding the NPC functions. Special Thanks to "Akane Syria" for making such a wonderfull saber. It isnt included with this model, but I added support for it! *********** Legal Stuff *********** THIS MODIFICATION IS NOT MADE, DISTRIBUTED, OR SUPPORTED BY ACTIVISION, RAVEN, OR LUCASARTS ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY LLC.
