Geez, I finally got through the second level, but there's three more?! Okay, you're getting the impression I didn't run through the whole thing... which is true. Not that I don't want to, I just don't have time for such complicated levels! Honestly I love them. The mapping is great, the levels are really tricky (or I'm really dumb... :p), an the voice acting is even pretty good. I realized halfway through I had my subtites off, and since the person on the other end of the comlink is basically speaking jibberish I was wondering why I was confused.
I'm going to let the screenshots speak mostly for themselves in terms of the architecture of the maps in this Single-Player mod. The maps themselves are tricky to get around. Especially that first one. I don't know how many times I died before I finally turned my brightness up, though that removed some of the challenge. I would have appreciated something more of an introductory cutscene, to find out a little bit more about our main character, but all in all it seems well thought out and well completed. It's no easy task to complete each level, and that's part of the appeal.
Definitely worth a download. As soon as I get a few spare minutes I'm going to go finish up those last three levels ;)
11/14/04 ================================================================ Title : The Ancient Threat Episode I: The Orthand Mystery Author : Gabrobot Email Address : Gabrobot@netscape.net Description : Originally started as a Jedi Outcast level, The Orthand Mystery is the first part of a planned Jedi Academy level trilogy that takes place 70 years after the second Death Star was destroyed. Jedi Student Daasev Itek is sent to investigate mysterious happenings when his master goes missing on the planet Orthand. TAT1 consists of 5 levels and just *maybe* something more. Installation : The mod .pk3 file is packed in the included .cab file...this is nessesary for the installation program. For Windows users, simply run the installation program (setup.exe) and follow the instructions. Then go into "Start Menu: Programs: The Orthand Mystery" and run "The Orthand Mystery" to start the launcher program. The documentation is in "*Your Jedi Academy folder*/Gamedata/tat1base/documentation" and is called "manual.doc". The documentation provides detailed instructions on running the mod if the launcher for some reason does not work. This level currently only supports Windows but it may be possible to run it on a Mac if you extract the .pk3 file and the "gamestart.cfg" file into a folder named "tat1base" in your Gamedata folder and load it as a mod in Jedi Academy. Voice acting : Will as Daasev Itek Battle Droid Model : Prophet Thanks to : Will, Emon, Nix, Qu Klaani, bridgetothestars.net, jediknight.net, commandchamber.net, massassi.net Software used : JK2Radiant GTKRadiant Impossible Creatures level editor Corel Photo-Paint 7 Lightwave 7.5 Terragen Known Bugs : Opening text is *very* hard to read due to severe lack of Lightwave knowledge at the time I made the cutscenes. Viewing the opening text in the documentation (manual.doc) prior to running TAT1 is *highly* recommended.
