Here we have an unofficial update on the Saber Realism mod by pandapop999. Now let me make it very clear that despite what the author claims in his read-me, this is not a version 2 of the original mod. Panda expressly told the author not to refer to it as such, but he seemed to feel the need to anyway, so just keep in mind that this is nothing more than an unofficial fix/update and that pandapop999 is already planning a real version 2 himself.
This changes a few things from the original, mainly being that speed has been increased, boss NPC stats have been normalized, and dismemberment has been added. This should appease those people who felt that the mod moved much too slowly. Certainly an improvement over the original in some areas, but you'll have to decide for yourself whether or not you want to replace the original with this one.
Readme File: *********************************** Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy *********************************** TITLE: Enhanced Saber Realism AUTHOR: LordZapharos, with permissions from pandapop999 E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org WEBSITE: None FILENAME: EnhancedSaberRealism.zip FILESIZE: around 8.75 Mb DATE RELEASED: 6 January 2008 CREDITS: I credit all the people in the original readme (included in zip), and only take credit for making the mod work with realistic dismemberment (so watch where your saber is sitting, you can kill your allies), and for speeding up the attack speed, etc. INSTALLATION: Move the folder "Enhanced Saber Realism" into your Gamedata folder. Boot up Jedi Academy, go to "Setup", and load the mod. Then start a new game, setup your character, and save the game. After saving, exit the game and reload the save to make dismemberment work. Refer to the dismemberment readme for more information on dismemberment. IF YOU DO NOT FOLLOW THE DISMEMBERMENT INSTRUCTION, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PLAY WITH DISMEMBERMENT IN THE GAME! DESCRIPTION: Refer to the original readme for most of the description, but this mod makes the game much MUCH harder yet more fun. It allows for more realistic lightsaber duels and better blocking, while also allowing for more realistic dismemberment than the original. I, Lord Zapharos, have made this the "V2", in a sense, of Pandapop999's original mod. BUGS: While it doesn't exactly qualify as a "bug", it is important to know that you must be careful on Vjun with Kyle, as he has a habit of walking close to you with his saber extended. If the saber touches you for a split second and doesn't kill you, it at least will take off 100 armor/health points, so be careful. This applies also to the end part of the game. I have sometimes noticed that Rosh will die for no obvious reason in the first map. This is fixed by noclipping through the map to the cutscene part with the stormtroopers. Changes: Full dismemberment has been added (be forewarned, this dismemberment is exactly like in JO and kills allies via the "idle saber"). Game speed has increased back to normal. NPC health has been reduced to normal, meaning that only Kyle (Vjun npc) and the Rancor will not die instantly after being swiped with a saber. Difficulties have been tweaked. Choose from easy, medium, hard, and vhard. Vhard is almost impossible now, as it leaves you with a max of 25 armor and health. It is the ultimate challenge!
