File Description

Hoo boy, getting this downloaded, uploaded, and tested was certainly a long effort! I'm sure it's long awaited by many, as well. Yes this is the sequal to the popular "Escape: Yavin IV" total conversion. Well, saying it's a sequel may not be completely accurate. It's really something of a replacement - a totally new story, twenty-five new levels, and plenty of new content to choose from. As it's very very long, I tested the first level fully, and will leave the rest to you. However even just from the first level I can tell the quality is way up there. The puzzles are difficult, the levels, even on the easiest setting, are challenging, and the cutscenes are very good. The voice acting could have used a little work, mostly in just the sound quality area (a lot of the voice actors just seemed a smidge too close to their microphones), but the feeling of the characters comes across well enough.

The author recommends you remove all custom PK3s from your base folder in order for this mod to work. The main reason behind this seems to be the incredibly high number of NPCs in the mod - if you have extra NPCs in your base folder your extensions will be too long and you won't be able to play, so keep that in mind. However the mod comes with enough customization on its own that you probably won't feel the need to have extra mods when you play it.

I'm not going to get too detailed on the features of this mod, but I will re-iterate a few things Darrow mentions in his read-me (which I strongly recommend you read). First of all, as I said, it has 25 brand new levels that were not included in the original EY4. Secondly, the interface of the game is new, including a "chapters" menu for easy level selection and a new saber menu (you can steal dropped sabers! yay!). It seems like after each level you can customize your sabers based on ones you acquired during the previous missions. So it's kind of like an "unlocking" system, from what I can gather. The TC also sports three, count 'em three, ending sequences, which is sure to keep you busy trying to get each one.

So if you're one of those types who loves single-player but whines and moans about how bad the single-player campaign Raven included is, here's your chance to try something a little bit more involved. However be warned - you're not ridding yourself of Rosh Penin!

Title : Escape: Yavin IV - The Lost Maps
Primary Author : Darrow Linder
E-Mail : darrow_linder@hotmail.com

File Name : ey4.zip
File Size : PK3 ~ 315 Mb
Date Submitted : February 22, 2006

Tested With : Jedi Academy + 1.1 Patch

Overview:
---------
Ahhhhh...  Finally done.  35 levels, 150000 brushes, 25000 lines of script,
40000 entities and 3000 hours of blood and sweat.  EY:4 - The Lost Maps.

Let's get this out of the way first.  I know the download is big.  Sorry.
I've made every effort to keep the mod as small as possible.  There are
20-30 hours of gameplay here, so it will be worth the download, I hope.

If you played my first conversion, Escape: Yavin IV, then hold on to your
hats.  This is an extension of the first conversion, but includes 25
additional levels, a new story, vehicle levels, space levels, additional
duels and puzzles, and customized interface (including a 'Chapters' menu
that enables you to play any game level), on-the-fly saber upgrades, and
three endings (that's right 'THREE' endings).  Your choices during the game
decide your fate.

Given the length of the game, I have eased up on the difficultly of the
game a bit (just a bit).

Nuff said.

Installation:
-------------
BEFORE YOU INSTALL, YOU MUST DO THE FOLLOWING:
1. Remove *all* custom pk3s and mods from your base / GameData folder
2. Remove *all* custom pk3s and mods from your base / GameData folder
3. Remove *ALL* custom pk3s and mods from your base / GameData folder

Failure to do so will likely result in the game failing to even start.  So
please don't ask me why the game won't start if you haven't done this.

To install this map, extract the contents of the ZIP file into the
'GameData' folder of your Jedi Academy install directory. Double-click the
batch file in the GameData folder and you're on your way.

I've been running with the 1.1 patch.  If you don't have it, play at
your own risk.

Story:
------
Basically, the Sith have dominated the galaxy.  The good guys (called the
Alliance) are threatened.  The game will feed you some hints that explain
the reason for the Sith control.  Of course, you have to come to the
rescue to save the universe from total Sith control (oh, unless you choose
to become a Sith).  The rest of the story pretty much tells itself.

Please note that if you choose to jump around the levels using the chapters
menu, you will not get the entire story.  Just keep that in mind.  It is
recommended you play through in normal game mode before jumping around.

Gameplay:
---------
In all, there are 38 levels (12 cinematic levels and 26 playable levels).
Unlike the traditional game (JKIII), your saber upgrades occur as you
defeat your opponents.  Each level also offers your a chance to 'trade'
your saber for one encountered up to that point in the game.

Like the cool saber disc your opponent has?  Defeat him, and take it!
It's that simple.

Issues:
-------
There are two really big issues:

1. level2_saber_shipment always hangs for me when it is *not* loaded as the
   first level in the game.

   ** If this occurs, you can use the Chapters menu to start a new game
      from this point in the game.

2. After some time of playing, the game seems to 'hang' after about 90
   seconds from a save point.  It does not happen in the same level or
   in the same place in the level.  The problem only occurs after playing
   and saving for SEVERAL HOURS continuously (essentially the same game).
   Restarting and loading the saved game does not correct the problem.

   ** If this occurs, you can use the Chapters menu to start a new game
      from where you left off.

3. My hard drive crashed and I lost *everything* associated with this game
   just a couple weeks ago.  Fortunately, I had already posted a V4 Beta, so
   really what you are playing is Beta V4+ here.  Everything pretty much
   works fine, but I lost all of the .map and script files.  So...  If you
   use the Chapters menu to start the ending levels of the game (Chapters 8
   - 11), you'll need to use the cheats to setup your force powers.

   ** Bring up the console then type:
        > helpusobi 1
        > setforceall 3

There's other little detailed things, most of which you probably won't
even notice, so it's not worth mentioning...
