Question before I download it:

Can a 16-bit user play with an 8-bit user, and vice versa?

Excellent! I love the different cloak-wearing modes, and the ability to change lightsaber stance and colour. 10 out of 10!

Brilliant, lvoe it, specially how you can change your stance while holding your lightsabre to get different sabre moves. The only thing i didn't like about it was that you have to press force buttons to flip, a hotkey like in SBX would have been nice for that. 9 out of 10

After playing this mod after 10 mins..i got bored... It is really annoying! Anything that is neverseenbefore item in this mod, is the capability to swith stances.. Sound is crappy, some skins are crappy and the moves is terrible... It changes randomly !! It really destroys what JK is built on !! Download SBX2 guys !!!

This was a good attempt. The cloak thing, though nice, took up room that could have been used for something like what SBX has, with roll, flip, or kick. The Lightstaff moves and looks were not as good as SBX2's. There were several moves where he was slicing an arm off. That's something that needs work, The shift stances thing was nice. I liked that. The moves for the single-blade, though were excellent. However, the moves were randomized, removing any shred of tactics from a fight. Just get in there, and press secondary fire and pray for the best. If you could change the randomization, work on the lightstaff and moves, and maybe add a mid-air Force Jump, this could be just as good, if not better than SBX2. Until then, I'm sticking with SBX.

Well, this mod I will not be downloading. Don't get me wrong, let me explain, I did not like SBX 2. Didn't like GOTG 1 (or whatever). Why? GLOWSABZ. I dont' like glow saberz. Dunno why. They just look..... odd. Basically, I'm just posting to state that I wasn't Dling because it was too big considering SBX is smaller. I don't really like SBX, but these mods are quite similar (judging from GOTG 1). I know they are dif (1 and 2), but nonetheless... Peace.

From Darth J:

"I have to tell you that there are a lot of tactics in this mod that you cannot expect to be able to employ within the first ten minutes of playing it. The saber swings are not random, but they do require a combination of secondary AND primary fire, not just holding down one or the other. I believe the reason why it's called MASTER EDITION is because it requires "time and trainig" to master it. Give it a couple days or a week and play it as often as you can. Learn the feel of the swings, memorize their sequence, and even contact TIE and/or myself for a quick game."

The first word that comes to my mind when playing this modification is: incredible. The remake is incredibly better than the first version, which had annoying saber fights as only one type of move was available. This version has varried saber movements, such as jabs, great Lightstaff handling, and now Single Player friendly thanks to the damaging secondary swing. :)

I give this a 10.

Posted: 2002-01-06 5:48 p.m.   Report Abuse
this mod is pretty good, the moves look pretty good, kinda jumpy in some places (as far as moves go) the ability to change you fighting stance looks pretty kewl, but does nothing other than change how it looks, moves are still exactly the same and it adds to the jumpiness of this MOD. the ability to switch the hood/ robe on/off is pretty awesome, but not enough control ovre the moves for me (give me SBX anyday) all in all, a good solid effort, and it does have potential to make for a good game. it's a keeper :) I gave it a 7

ok, I'm gonna say from the start that for now, this is going to stay on my HD, but I liked sbx 2.0 better and the reason, is because the sabers move very slow. In saber battle x, the author changed the moves so that the lightstaff was MUCH faster then a normal lightsaber, but the lightsaber was more powerfull. The robe thing and the saber positions rocked I'll admit, but for the future, try to change the styles. (I realize this is getting kind of long but bear with me) take for instance, the game for psx called "Jedi Power Battles", each character has a different stance, and each stance fights differently. Adi Gallia fights with her saber backhanded (holding the handle backwards) whereas others would fight with their own way. I still gave this an 8 though, partially because it's a major improvement over the original. Sorry it was a little wordy, hehe.

I actually like this better than SBX 2.0, and that was THE ONLY MOD I played for the longest time. My problem with SBX was that, the lightstaff would occassionally kill me and my friends in like 1 hit, just because it collided with them, and kept on hitting. Maybe it's just me. But anyway, I love this mod. I've been waiting for it, and it's as well done as I had hoped. Congrats. I give it a 10.
Posted: 2002-01-06 7:12 p.m.   Report Abuse
Well, I'm getting the 8-bit version simply because the framerates are twice as good, and 16-bit MATs are buggy.
Posted: 2002-01-06 7:59 p.m.   Report Abuse
I give it a 8. Nice mod, but not as good as SBX 2.0. The stances are nice, as are the robes, but SBX 2.0 is much more intense for multi-player. As with any mod with saber streaks, they lag in multiplayer. That's another downside.

The removal of the hood is nice but no flips rolls or anything kinda gets old after 10 min.Credit all your hard work!There's only one saber mod though that's SBX]

This is TOTALLY awesome!!! I like this more than SBX 2... Hmmm... Well, to be honest I always preferred SBX 1 to SBX 2 even though both are masterpieces... Along with GOTG... The air flip is really kewl, nice Kyle skin (hehe), the robe gadget rulez... w00t, THIS IS WORTH THE DOWNLOAD TIME!!! However, turning the saber on / off volunarily and making shortcuts to flips (ala SBX "evade") would of made this even more popular. 10 / 10 - enormous skin work...

Some of you sound like you think I'm trying to replace SBX....Why on Earth would I want to do that? What's in it for me?

I didn't submit this patch so people would stop playing other patches, and I'd appreciate it if you would play GoTG-ME with this in mind.

Thanks, and enjoy.

I have had some trouble with this and the original GOTG. When I go through to pick a multiplayer skin, a vast majority of the skins and their parts show up as rainbow with no resemblance in texture to what they are supposed to look like. Any ideas on how to fix this? I have the 16 bit version and 3d Acceleration enabled.

Hows it a rip off? wow yea he's put a double sabre in, sbx has got one of those so it MUST be a rip off!!! have you seen how many other mods have got double bladed sabres in? this ain't a rip off at all. yea it's not as good as sbx (although it's still a cracking good mod), but it ain't a rip off
Posted: 2002-01-08 3:44 p.m.   Report Abuse
The original GoTG has a double bladed saber before the original SBX, and was still certainly not the first to include the weapon.

It's not like it's an original idea; it's a central jedi weapon from Episode 1. It should be safe to expect mods based off jedi combat for a Star Wars game will start including the double bladed saber fairly regularly.

Calling GoTG a ripoff is really degrading, especially when you haven't thought about what it is you're trying to say.

Most likely.

But I didn't care the first time it happened, and I don't particularly care now.

Play what you like, that's all I've ever asked.

Hey, how come i am never able to blocked other sabers in a saber battle? The blades just go through eachother.
Posted: 2002-01-08 4:49 p.m.   Report Abuse
It's probably lag, what's your connection speed?

Posted: 2002-01-09 4:26 a.m.   Report Abuse

The 3D acceleration is only active when playing.
When you're in the menus it is diplayed in 8-bit only... that's why textures in model selection are screwed... but in game they are normal.
If they aren't then this is strange

Hey man like i said before great mod. I prefer this over SBX2 any day. And you know why? It's for Masters! That's right it takes more time to kill someone and you can do it quite fancily too.

Unlike SBX2 you can't sit in a corner kick and spin your lightstaff around. With this mod you actually have to work on how you swing and when. The gameplay is not as quick and therefore more enjoyable by those of higher intelligence.

I am glad that TIE made this and the original GotG. And TIE, please, please, please email me if you are going to make another mod. I've already rated this a 10!

There are still a lot of bugs in it.. Although i think many of them are the cause of the JK engine. anyway.
there where problems with switching colors of the lightsaber.. sometimes the color would dissapear and all you would have is the white core.. that happened a lot. and as well when you activate force lightning your character will become semi transparent and well.. look un 3d accelerated IE the colors would mess up and go all funky.

heh... it's great, TIE. I wish people wouldn't post before they try it or before they think about what they're posting. I don't think a lot of people realize that mods of this caliber take a lot of hard work... criticism that isn't thought through just makes the author of the comments look stupid. :)

Great job and keep up the good work, TIE.

I give it an 8. I was fun, nice graphics and all but I noticed one very degrading glitch. With the new spiffy awsome HUD (the Force side) if you pick up a surge on either side it adds the normal yellow glow to the HUD but whens the surge wheres off it still there in some parts. So if you pick up a Force surge it ruins your HUD until the end of the game! Ughh! Any other than that it was great!

hmmm..this is ok. flip looks cool but rolling is not so good in speed. it would be better somewhere else but its ok that way.
I hope that u can do something to those moves. some moves u cut your own arm or leg or something..
sorry to say but I like sbx2 better. this is ok and better than earlier GotG.

Very nice mod. Only complaint is that the new saber stances for the single-bladed saber look wierd. The double bladed ones are cool, though. The whole robe thing is very cool. 9 out of 10.
Posted: 2002-01-12 3:43 p.m.   Report Abuse
This is an awsome mod-
The saber colours are really nice and the glow sabers look really good.
The robe toggle is really good
The saber battles actually feel like saber battles- the sabers block even when swinging -duels go on for ages and need a clever move to brng an opponent down- sabers are really fast and they actually seem to stop when they connect.
The stances are good - but do they have any significance in gameplay? Some on the zone seem to think different stances are good for different things sush as blocking and power.
What would be nice would be a special move for each stance.
The flips and rolls are nice but it is annoying to have to do force powers. No air jump though. :( The John williams music on force powers is cool though
The lightstaff has to be better than the original and the invincible SBXstaff (tm) and I am glad to see you went with the multiple colours. And it is fun to see multiple newbies with lightstaffs running in terror that they are not invincible and actually have to use skill.
Great mod!

One word:
Not quite a s good as SBX2.0, but hot on its trail. I loved the stances, and the whole robe thing, really kool. And if you play GotGME at IRG palace, sith versus Jedi RPG..your in for one heck of a time. If its played propely, it is AWESOME!!!. A sequel to this would probably even Kick SBX off the throne of the favourite saber mod..if you dont have this yet, you are criminally INSANE!

I'm sorry that people are being disrespectful for your hard work. I mean you did this by yourself, they should cut you a break if they can't do this good; and i know i can't. The stances are very good but there are two things i would change would be to replace the kyle character with one with a robe and hood so we can see what the change is like in sp; and to put the second fire swings to respond to different movements ala forward, back, and fast for example. I know how to change out 3do's and to rearrange cog's so i'm going to do that and then i think the mod will be better. Your mod is very good and i play it along with the sbx series as complements and competition. So you might want to consider those changes and maybe re-release it as an update.

Great mod, but it needs work. I like the no damage from fall and self healing, but SBX 3.1 is better in everything else.

This was a really good mod, and I think that you really do have some tough competition with the SBX series. ShadowX has pretty much dominated saber mods as of late. I noticed that this focused more on the Lightsaber combat, while SBX concentrates more on Sith Lightsaber. Also, the sith lightsaber moves in SBX are well done, and pretty hard to beat. The lightsaber moves in your mod were kind of frustrating, and it would've been better to have the different stances to different secondary attacks instead of scrolling through a million of them. Same with the primary attacks. Still, I really liked this mod, and it was original. (The cloak thing was cool too.) I still give you a 10/10, for your awesome effort.

YES! finaly i found what i have been looking for, im deleting SXB3.1 right now. this thing rules. The cloak thing rules, and i find it realy reminds me of the movies. SBX1 was good , 2 was great, 3 blew, and 3.1 blows harder but its all that any 1 plays. WHY DONT YOU PEOPLE SEE THAT THIS IS BETTER! great work, i belive that you can make something that will finish SBX off. PLZ make something new, and even better, and call it SBX4 so people will down load it, beacuse it seems that they just flock to any thing with SBX on it, no matter how hard it blows. hummmmm maby a Jay and Silent Bob mod would be good.

This thing was horrible... It reminds me of the first mods for JK. The Graphics WERE good, but due to thee sheer lack of skins and pathetic gameplay, it's just plain horrible. SBX skins were by far better. The cloak thing WAS cool however. SBX saber battles were far better. SBX saber trails weren't as good as this. There were no kicks or flips in this. I'm sorry, but SBX is just plain better. 0/10

Its very creative..It won't replace SBX for me but I'll play it along side....

Posted: 2004-05-28 1:18 a.m.   Report Abuse
Well, I must congratulate you TIE, great job on making the mod, you pushed the hard and made a job that i found incredible.
First let's start by the 3dos, they were well crafted, almoust impecable, the trails were crafted correctly and a shift for the hoods, robe and combat cloth, were great inventions for the game, very good for dramatic situation games, like a remake of the Duel of the Fates scene.
2nd: Cogs, very correct cogs, they were error-free and well worth like the spin on the air, but i think that other kind of inventions could be put, like a more useful Force Seeing, not a total eye-killing IR vision, but something like SBX, who did really lighted everytinhg for a real better vision for the player.
3rd KEYs - I found that the master combat very confusing, although i know and tested to see that the movements are not random, i still find them very confusing to me not because of the movements compatibility, but for the kind of movements necessary for an attack, who did leaved me with open space for the enemy, but anyway i found it better than the original GotG moves.
4th MATs - The real top gun of this mod, the mats were well designed and made, possivelly kick out of the way EVERY other mod, i found the saber glows colours to be very well put as the author watched all the movies, and decided to make a clever thing that many ignore, three colors of blue, although very unnoticeble they can make the difference from top dogs like this and SBX. But i think the author could make something more well detailed, like new saber hilts, like did SBX 3.1, who did made a big difference between SBX 3.0 and 2.0, after this, possivelly, the only comment i have for the mats: Perfect.

Overall - As much more people may have said, every top dog mod have his caracteristic, this one, by example, it's his mats and his hood feature, by innovation and pro like saber battles, i am proud to honor this MOD with a 10 (The result of the rate does not change because of which mod characteristic were better, if there WERE any battle between SBX vs. GotG i would call it a draw, and one of the best duels ever :)

Dhamerian ;)
