Announcing Jedi Knight & MotS 3D Preview -
Thanks to a very generous contribution to Massassi by Stephan Reiter, all our Jedi Knight and Mysteries of the Sith level pages now feature a 3D Preview! This lets you poke around the levels in 3D without having to load the game. In fact, you don't even have to have the game installed.
Stephan has made the code open source so anyone can contribute and/or use it on their own. The code can be found here: jkview on Github
Here's an example of the 3d preview in action: MLP3

Nikumubeki and Eversor Asked For This -
me to copy over some old stuff to the Massassi server. And Eversor demanded I update the main page. Here it is.
- SINE - Screenshots of a level Sine_Nomen was working on before his computer crashed and everything was lost :(
- JKL2OBJ - I'm not familiar with this, but the included tutorial video indicates that you can take a gob file and export the whole thing (jkl, referenced 3dos, textures, etc.) as an .obj file which can be used in 3dsmax

2016 Holiday Logo Contest -
As has been an (almost) annual tradition since 1998, we are now running the Massassi Temple Holiday Logo Contest
. Add your submission to the forum thread and it will be uploaded to the 2016 Holiday Logo list
and will soon be rotated on our main page (and maybe the forums). I've always appreciated the work and creativity put into these logos and I'd love to see what everyone comes up with this year! Thanks as always.

Level Comments and Ratings are Back! -
You should now be able to once again leave comments and ratings on the level information pages. This requires a Massassi account
. All old accounts still exist with the old passwords. At this point there is no way to change your password, reset your password, or retrieve your password. I'm working on change and reset password but it will probably be at least another week. However, the only thing we ask for is a username, email address, and password so please feel free to register a new account if you can't get into your old one. Or contact us
and I can figure out a way to let you back into your account.
Please start by playing and leaving feedback for the Death of Massassi Level Pack
. I'm sure the authors would appreciate it!

Star Wars Humble Bundle II -
If you want some cheap old Star Wars games check out the Star Wars Humble Bundle II
. It doesn't have Dark Force, JK, or MotS (the first one did) but some of the games look like they're worth checking out. Forum thread
has some discussion as well.
Level Comments/Ratings -
I was hoping to have the level comments/ratings back up this weekend but it doesn't look like it's going to happen. I have a few more things to clean up first. Hopefully next week. Sorry for the delay!

Death of Massassi Level Pack Released! -
I am happy to announce the Death of Massassi Level Pack
! This is a set of levels submitted as part of the Massassi Level Pack: The Epilogue?
forum thread. Big thanks and congratulations to all authors, contributors, and beta testers.
Unfortunately the level comments & ratings are still down so please leave (constructive and/or positive) feedback on the forums
New Jedi Knight Single Player Level: Life of Grismath -
File: Life of GrismathAuthor: Josh Stickler (Grismath) and Daniel Wilkes (Thrawn[numbarz])Description: In 1997, we learned that we're not alone in the galaxy; this discovery changed the course of history and thrust humanity onto the galactic stage. And what a weird galaxy it is. After a variety of adventures, Grismath left Earth many years ago and has been roaming the galaxy. Now 68 years old, he must come to terms with his own mortality and think about his legacy.
New Jedi Knight Single Player Level: TODOA 2- Duel at Belga Jer -
File: TODOA 2- Duel at Belga JerAuthor: NikumubekiDescription: Only one fortress remains in the way of total Imperial control over the planet of Belga Jer. Home to a senile Jedi fugitive known as Yerkov, his capability for Battle Meditation still poses a threat to Imperial forces on the planet. Put an end to his pathetic existence.
New Jedi Knight Single Player Level: Take-Off: Destiny of Alderaan -

Death of Massassi Level Pack Submissions Are Due -
If you have a level for the Death of Massassi Level Pack
please submit it
right away. I'm going to be posting the submissions tomorrow evening.
Submission Instructions Updated Again -
I updated the submission instructions again. They now have a way to get to the main email address for the Massassi Staff (which is currently just me). This should help make it easier to submit (and reduce reliance on vbulletin, ugh).
Feb. 20, 2016
Submission Instructions Updated -
I updated the submission instructions
. If you have something you'd like to see on The Massassi Temple, head on over to learn how to submit it.
Soon I will start posting level/map/mod submissions again. Most of the other things we have historically posted (3dos, mats, cogs, etc.) don't get used often and are a pain to update so I'm probably not going to update those sections.
Feb. 19, 2016
Level Downloads Fixed -
Level downloads are fixed. Please let me know if you have any problems. Best way to contact me is to use the contact us page
on the forums. The email address linked on all my posts here is no longer valid (replace the .net with a .com and it will work, though).
I'll also be updating the submission instructions this weekend.
Level Downloads Broken -
Brandon let me know that level downloads are currently broken. This is simply an oversight on my part when I moved the server over. I will fix them this weekend, sorry for the issue.

Searching for Imperial Indulgence -
Thrawn[numbarz] is searching for
a level he created but seems to have disappeared. It's called Imperial Indulgence
and is pictured in this SotD
. If you have a copy, please get in touch in the thread
. Since we're in 2016 I suppose I can safely embed an image in the main page.

Site & Forum Bugs -
If you notice any site and/or forum bugs, please post them here
. I know of the following so far:
- Forum user profile pages are messed up
- Tutorials page still needs to be updated (will try to get to this next week)
- Submission instructions and email addresses are down (will try to get to this in the next 2 weeks)
- Level commenting and rating is still not working (will try to get to this in the next 3 weeks)
- Times on the news/index page are in UTC (not sure if I care about this; may just add the time zone)
Some improvements have also been made. I spent a few weeks going line-by-line through our custom PHP scripts and hopefully they're now a lot more secure than they were before. Also you may notice that all Massassi sites are now served over https (SSL).
And some features that were not active have been removed. Specifically the Editor's Corner (which allowed people to post screenshots and notes (like blog entries, but before "blog" was a word) has been removed because it was insecure and rarely used.
Show off your work in the Showcase Forum! -
This site has historically been dedicated to the Dark Forces games (starting with Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight). However, most people have moved on to other games and I get that.
If you do any sort of editing for other games, please feel free to put it up on in the Showcase Forum
. Not only can you get some praise and feedback, but if your work is cool I'll put it up as Screenshot of the Day. Which probably won't be daily but I'll try to update it at least once per week. (More if we get more submissions.)

Welcome Back to Massassi -
Welcome back to The Massassi Temple. This is now running on my server. I would like to thank CoolMatty for his stewardship of the site over the past many years. I have spent some time fixing up various areas of the site but there is still more work to do. I'll post another news item with my plans for the site over the next few days.

Merry Christmas, Tracer. -
This Christmas post is dedicated to community member Tracer. Your warm smile and baby-soft skin has brought so much joy to the Massassian forums over the past decade. We, the Administration, would like to take this festive time of year to toast our holiday-themed glasses in your name. Without you, Massassi would just be Massassi Without Tracer. On this note, we should all remember the importance of friends, family and the names of our enemies. Thank you and have a happy holiday season and a wonderful New Year.
With Loving Memories,
