Well, this is an interesting one. I don't think I need to point out what it is, since that should be obvious, so I'll just assess it.
The code effect looks kinda dodgy and distorted, even when it's inanimate, most likely because it's a flat texture curved onto a round bubble. Jedi Academy's source coding doesn't allow for scrolling on the shield effect, and that adds to the freakiness factor. The pulsating effect which comes standard with shields is still here, naturally, and that (combined with the other aspects) makes the whole thing seem like looking at a Matrix screensaver after doing mushrooms or something. Er, not that I advise trying that sort of thing. >_>
The idea doesn't really work out as well in practice as it does on paper, mostly due to the engine's limitations. Still, it's an interesting, if not weird, effect. It looks pretty good from a distance, but once you get up close the illusion is shattered.
You guys know the drill. Feel like something new? Give it a download. It's certainly unique. Just be sure that you have no other shield effect pk3s in your base folder when using this, otherwise there will be clashes.
*********************************** Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy *********************************** TITLE: The Matrix Shield AUTHOR: Eruan (aka David Skywalker) E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org FILENAME: matrixshield.pk3 FILESIZE: 33.3kb DATE RELEASED: 12 December 2006 CREDITS: Thanks for James Skywalker's help in testing this mini-mod INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Make sure that you do not have any other shield mods in your base folder, then drop the matrix_shield.pk3 into Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy/Gamedata/Base DESCRIPTION: This is a small mini-mod that replaces the default shield in Jedi Academy to have the Matrix text scroll as the shield. This idea is mine alone, and I did not copy anyone else's mod, and I did not intentionally take an idea from an already existing mod. BUGS: This mod is not intended to make the text actually scroll on the shield. Any distortion effects are part of base Jedi Academy, and I would not know what is necessary to make it actually scroll. It's not really a bug, but I thought I would let it be known that it does not scroll. COMMENTS: I've pretty much said everything already. (Btw, if you want to use this mini-mod in any full mod, please include this unaltered readme and give full credit to me.)
