A Jedi's Discovery 2: The Dark Mask

The Massassi Temple » Levels/Mods » Jedi Knight Single Player Level » A Jedi's Discovery 2: The Dark Mask


This is a SINGLE PLAYER LEVEL FOR JK. Sorry for not creditting some of the contributors last time I submitted. I have done so in this revised addition of AJD2. Last you left off at you had defeated the cloned sith of Darth Maul, before finding out there where no weapon plans, it was simply a trap for the jedi. Jedi council member Koben Katarn picked you up after defeating the sith. When you came back to the Jedi Council, Yoda told you he already had foreseen there were no weapon plans. The council thinks that there may be a link from the trade federation for the cloning of the sith. He had to be defeated, thats why Yoda didn't say anything. He has assigned you with a new mission. There is a space station that has been orbitting Tatooine for a while now. He want's you to go to the space station a find out what there doing orbiting Tatooine. What you and the council don't know is that the space station is run by genetically engineered cyborgs (cyborgs are part flesh part robot, so they will bleed). They can push themselves harder, longer then any other normal man or droid. They have guns built into their arms, and they are also fast shooters. Note: The patch that came with the level, I put there for a reason. It's very important in order to get the full effect for this game. One other thing. When you quikesave, make sure you don't have your lightsaber out, and make sure there is no saber sounds going on. (for instance turning it off, or clashing etc.) and when you die and you load again, pause it and go to load and load it again, or else it may screw up your force powers.

I Love this level! it's so much fun! it satisfies any need for lightsaber use, and the half clone things are just sweet!

Definately sub-average. Architecture was boxy, and the level was extremely linear (that's not always a problem, but you basically just walk from one room to another). However I did get a kick out of the horrendous voice acting when someone tried to make droid voices. And there were no cyborgs!

The gray guys are the cyborgs remember me telling in the discription they will bleed?

All i have to say, is SWEET!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's got one hell of a clif hanger ending, it was such a huge improvment from the first A jedi's Discovery, I await A Jedi's Discovery3. There will be a 3rd one right? Oh yea, make the structer of the next one, more complex like other people are doing, not that i don't like this one.

Yes there will be "A Jedi's Discovery 3" I might start making it today. And I will make it more complex like others.

This Mod? Level... Is really Bad! 1) If you are going to force us to sit through the beginning Movie sequences, you could at least record the voices at a level that does not throw the sound into distortion. (Also don't speak so closely to the mic.) 2) Have some creativity in your use of textures and negative space. This Level is so 1 dimensional it is ridiculous. 3) If you are going to submit a level, why don't you make sure all your floor surfaces have their flags set properly. 4) Please use a spellchecker or a dictionary for any text. Misspelled words will make people think that you are sloppy or uneducated.

I admit that I DL'ed this level after reading comments about Crouching Tiger... and so I thought "Ok, let's give this guy a shot, He's had more time to get his act together..." But I must say that I was sadly disappointed with what I received. If you want people to respect your work and Download more of your products, Then you have to take the time to clean your work. What I played was Shoddy work! I for one, will not download another work with this author's name attached.

While I personally would by far NOT recommend this level, its good that you have a fan club Zippy. Keep em happy but if you want a larger fan club - USE JED

how many times must it be stressed - levels should not be made in JKEdit - PERIOD. Every level I have seen made in JKEdit has been terrible with the exception of one - and that was only because the PROGRAMMER of jkedit made it. I don't know if its bad for level editor newbies, but you got to switch to Jed sometime. Agh, well anyway, this level was definatly not worth the 5 megs for sure. I'd rather stick to the non boxy levels that arent filled with phycotic enemies that fire the same speed with raildets as they do with blasters - I dont call fighting them skill - but as I said, as long as you have a fan club, keep going. I guess they haven't been spoiled by the sweeter sides of JK levels yet....

Like a couple of previous ppl have posted...this level is kinda least texture and construction wise.

but...(there is always a but)

the level has a very very good plot and that makes up a little for the bad editing.

As another guy said...use makes better levels.

I am a JKedit turned JED guy. Even though JED is a little more complicated it is a far better program to use.

I am glad you have a personal fan club to cheer you on. (LOL) And really, I don't have anything against new editors and learning the process. But if you are going to show a product to the public, give them something that has been cleaned of all the glaring mistakes. You have too many submissions at this point to call yourself a new editor. Please learn from your mistakes.

As too me judging the quality of this work, let me rephrase it: This level needs work, and should not have been released in a rush.

For those of you who did not like my comments and felt that they were immature, you might want to consider a spellchecker if you are going to call someone stupid.

Oh, and I work in the Entertainment Arts. There is something called bad voice acting. (This doesn't mean it can't get better.)

This was done with jed, the only thing I used jkedit for was possitioning objects, and placeing cogs. THATS IT!!!
Dark Luke
Posted: 2001-09-20 2:35 p.m.   Report Abuse
Next time, everything including cog and level placement should be done in JED.

Well... well done by working your transition from JKEdit to JED. Your readme file is misleading, as "JKEdit... with a little bit on JED" can make people feel nuts (not me).

I'd say it's a pretty good level.

BTW Zippy don't let people discourage you (not that you are)

I don't see why it matters if you place cogs with Jed or JkEdit

your wright it doesn't make any difference. The way I see it, is if it's easier and it makes no difference, go and do it.

"your wright it doesn't make any difference. The way I see it, is if it's easier and it makes no difference, go and do it. " -Zippy

Actually, it does make a difference whether you use Jed or JkEdit to add things and/or cogs but I suppose you aren't quite that advanced yet to see why... I've never released a level before, and my skill is waaaaay above this...

Zippy, i will make these comments before I make my formal review. There were NO items- very hard to beat without cheat codes. All the cyborgs looked like they were holding guns-but there were none. I realize you made it like it is cuz of the yelling of stormtroopers last time, so that was ok. The fighting the pre-cloned jedi was fun. I liked that, but they should have had textures. You also need to make sure you don't yell or sit so close to the mike cuz i made out VERY LITTLE of what you said. Final Review will be sent friday, so look for it!

This was the most dissapointing lvl i've ever come across there are many more saving bugs than you indicate. The only thing i did like was the authers name "zippy".I am a great fan of your earlier work on Rainbow with George and Bungle (by the way did Rod die of Aids as the rumours say? And if so whats going to happen to his partner Freddy?).Anyway back to your poor lvl,council is spelt like that!

Dont give up because with years more experience you may turn out something that does not waste space on my hard drive, I shall look foward to deleting this!

To other potential d/l's dont bother!

Ok you made constructive critisizm which was kinda border lining on being rude, but telling others not to download this level is crossing the line. Don't tell other people to not make the god damn download, that's just damn rude.

I didnt like it.

Why? It would not load level. It would get about 3/4 of the way loading, then say "Could not load level." So I gave it a zero because I couldn't get it to work. What a great level!

Well, it's no work of art, but then again not many levels are (Except the best level ever Sith Lord Disco Tech). I gave this one a seven. Good luck on your next level Zippy, and keep'em come'n.

Any way in the second level, which I havn't started making yet. Your gonna be in a Pub and your gona have to fight a drunk moron. And in the backround music in the bar is gona be a jazz tune which I'm wrighting (Because I'm a saxaphone player and I'm a jazz musician) my designing is just a hell of alot better.

This level rocks!!! I love the ending, man!!!! Those dark dudes with their lightsabers freak me out, cause when I approach them, they started to move fast and start to attack me. I rate the level for 8 and for the mod I rate it 5 for bad, I wanted to use my SBX-JK 3.0 mod for the level!!!

i'm off to kill lots of stormtroopers!!!!

I'm not yet through the level. I'm liking it so far tho. Granted i'm using the JK cheats but if I didn't use those I would have been toast. Anywho, my plight, the reason i'm having problems is because of this large round room where you need like an extended bridge but I can't force leap across it and I couldn't find the controls for the extended bridge... So Zippy, could you give me a little help here?

Anywho, i'm not a levelwriter or anything like that. Editor, nope, not that either. I'm a player. I enjoy playing the levels that people like me put out because it shows creativity which this level shows A LOT of, The people who dissed you have no right to diss you. If the other levels showed HALF as much creativity as you did in this level then I would have one FULL hard drive. I woudl have downloaded them all. I get a sore butt from sitting here playing the levels that i have downloaded so far. So keep up the good work and I can't wait to see AJD:3. And I would like it if you would send that to me. I'll e-mail you so you can send me the demo.
Posted: 2002-04-15 5:55 a.m.   Report Abuse
The fact is, you can't extend the bridge. You have to use a combination of force jump, and force speed. Also if your not useing the patch that come with the game, you definatly should. With the patch you can continuasly force jump in the air. How many times you ask? Till you run out of force! If you like my game sofare. You'll love when you get accross that room. Because the boss is there. And it has a huge cliff hanger ending.

I'll send you the demo when I get the chance.

I am in need of anyones help. I have been trying to send my demo to several people, my home e-mail seems to have problems because it won't send attachments. Sure you think this my not be a problem. But I can't use hotmail to do it. And what about when I want to submite the full version? Could someone tell me an e-mail place that a could creat an e-mail which has no attachment limit. Or something that will let you send alot of space. Please Help!

Cool level the clons are awesome. I gave it a 9.
I LOVE THIS LEVL!!!!!!!!!!!!
Posted: 2002-06-24 4:43 p.m.   Report Abuse
I gave this a 7. I actually found it rather amusing. The droids were interesting, and a different challenge from the tediously dull Grans and Stromtroopers.

However, I don't suppose you coudl post the script here? Cause I only heard half of it and wudl like to read the rest. The sounds recordings were most poor quality, though I know that soemtimes that cannot be helped. Therefore, to combat this trouble- use subtitles as well as voice.

Also, there were some serious cog issues. I kept sinking into the floor.

But probably the most annoying thing was the fact the game kept shutting down on me. I finally worked it out so I didn't hafta go back tot he begining everytime, but it made the whole thing harder and more irrtating.

I realize, though, that these are beginner errors, and I hope that Zippy will not take these critcisms too harshly, but will work on imporving so that AJD3 will be all the better.

Thats quite alright, as long as you have a reason for your comments, thats fine. But Say If you had absolutly nothing good to say about this, then I would think you were a jerk. But You did have good things to say. Anyway what I came on to say, is I have most of the levels done for ajd3, thats right it will have five levels. It uses the one of the many glowsaber patches, so we got trails :). I've been taking martial arts this year so I changed the lightsaber movements to be more martial art like. I would put subtitles if I could. And the wav files are poor quality because otherwise, the game would take up SO MUCH more space. There is A thing in the end of ajd3 that will make you say, "oh that completly contradicts episode 2" So once I relized that I made an explanation for so it is still technicly accurate.

Peace :)

Well... the new enemies do too much damage (they fire wayyy to fast, i.e. 3 rockets in 1 second!? And the big droids fire high damage AT-AT blasts at an insane rate!?) causing the player to die very frequently. The AI should be changed that it will only fire 1 shot instead of something like 3 concusion blasts in a short amount of time.

For the architecture... It's mostly boxy, but there are signs that (real) eye candies are starting to appear.

The little solid Tatooine on the ceiling of outdoor areas is pretty lame... But whatever, I can't find way to turn that circle floating object into a nice looking planet. (looks like you used that technique from Dark Emperor 2 =P)

For the cutscene, please add captions so people can read what are your voices speaking...

I gave it a 6, as it's getting improved. (Both Dark Emperor 1 and 2 has an average rating of 6) Nice improvements, and I enjoyed the level!
