New Jedi Outcast Screenshots - Brian @ 3:27 AM
ZeroXcape let me know in the chat room that Lucasarts has released two new screenshots of Jedi Outcast: Jedi Knight II. One of them looks awesome, but the other pictures some overly rounded storm troopers. Hopefully these will be re-modeled as time goes on... Remember, you can find loads of JK2 information on our Jedi Knight II information page.
Small Mats Section Upgrade - Brian @ 3:59 AM
The mats section now gives the option to view each texture tiled. For example, this is the old way and this is the new way. At the bottom of each shot, you can choose whether or not you want it tiled. This should help you figure out whether you are happy with how well a texture stitches before you download it and copy it to your project directory.

He was sold to Svan Mardak, a notorious killer on Ovoo IV. After given an assigment to hunt down and kill a senator who had just recently dared to tread on the pride of Svan's employer, Kohan Gatspsus, Nine Ex was sent to do the dirty job himself. ThreeDeeNineEx was supposed to shoot the senator right in the middle of his speech in the Grand Colessium. Earerly awating the downfall of him nemesis, Kohan attended the speech. 9X was just lining up his sights right in the middle of the senator's fat forehead, when he had a change of heart. So, shifting his sights over to Kohan, who was sitting right beside the senator, shot him right in the face. Thinking that NineEx was useless, and had commited a crime, Svan junked him. Nine years later, a young nobleman was riffling through the trash, to find parts for his new accountant droid, which he thought he would call 8T88, He found an intact droid head, and it seemed to attached to something. Digging deeper, he found what was left of 3D9X, and decided to put off the 8T88 project, and re-assemble 3D9X... (description continues for quite a bit in the readme file)

Obi-Wan Interview - Brandon @ 7:15 PM
I saw on Voodoo Extreme that TeamXbox has posted an interview with LucasArts' Julio Torres who is the Assistant Producer of Obi-Wan. Here's a sample:
"What can players expect to see in Obi-Wan?"

"The main focus of this game is for the player to really feel like they are a Jedi. That has been the goal since the start of the project. In order to achieve this, we had to make sure the player had complete control over the light saber. We struggled with this for about a year staying away from creating a game where your saber fighting is a button-matching thing because you don't really have control. That is when we came up with the idea of using the analog stick for the saber. The way this works is that any direction you want the saber to swing, a player just has to move the analog stick in that direction."

Massassi & Command Chamber in Computer Games Magazine - Brian @ 8:07 PM
Chris sends word that the print June 2001 issue of Computer Games Magazine contains an 'Afterlife' column that features Jedi Knight and MotS. I'll post the text Chris sent here. I wasn't able to find a copy, unfortunately, because they have been replaced with the July issues. I am going to see if I can't order a back issue tomorrow morning. Anyway, here's the snippet, written originally by Brett Todd.
"A long time ago...
One game I can't seem to stop reinstalling is ucasArts legendary Jedi Knight. The groundbreaking sequel to Dark Forces may be nearing it's fourth birthday, but both it and the Mysteries of the Sith expansion pack still feature some of the most compelling first-person shooting [and, uh, sabering] this side of modern efforts like the afore mentioned No One Lives Forever. If you don't own either game, do yourself a favor and pick them up from a bargain bin near you. If you do own them, cruise over to The Massassi Temple and the Admiral's Command Center for a look at the many user-designed solo missions and multiplayer maps available.

Be prepared to surrender a lot of time to your PC if you're a Star Wars fan, though. Many of the home-brewed missions boast LucasArts-like design touches, some even go beyond the outstanding quality of retail levels such as "The Falling Ship." I've just lost the better part of a weekend to SavageX's epic "Leeza's Destiny 3.0" and Ryan Bickhart's incredible "Imperial Siege on Derra IV." Each features puzzles, new cutscenes, and all of the other frills that make an FPS level truly memorable. "Imperial Siege" may be the best user-designed level I've ever played for any game. Any way you look at it, getting back to Jedi Knight is a great way to kill time while waiting for Hayden Christansen to turn into Darth Vader in Episode II"
Big thanks to Chris for sending in the email. If you have this mag and a scanner, please scan the page(s) and send them to me!

ArmyTC Level Contest Announced - Aglar @ 2:46 PM
Uber(HOV), leader of the ArmyTC informed me via ICQ of a level contest. He passed on the following information:
Just a few more notes on the level contest: This isn't just an Army TC level contest... Runner-up maps will be in the next DFA beta. How cool is that? : )

Here are some more guidelines on the contest:

-The levels must have the right atmosphere. Obviously we don't want a space level ; ) So be sure to keep it realistic.

-Levels may NOT be already submitted or posted somewhere else. Though they may be released after the TC's release as a standalone level (not in any other mod!).

-This is obviously a MotS TC, so it must be a MotS level.

-All levels must be in before August 31st (may be subject to change if anything happens to come up).

Email all entries to, thanks.

Well, I'm sure looking forward to it.

Then, I made my own cogs and BMs and threw them together to get this. The mod modifies all the weapons but the saber. It also has a IR goggle cog that lets you fly if you use the ir goggles. I plan to make a 2nd version and replace the IR goggle cog with a grappling hook. Its a small download so just give it a try.

After seeing his brother, Davin, defect from the Empire, Conlin Felth, then an Imperial commando, set out to find Davin and to set him straight, even if he had to do it the hard way. Eventually, his hunt led him to a mysterious Sith artifact rumored to be destroyed. Conlin pocketed the relic, but as he was hurrying to leave the temple, the statue fell out of his pocket, and cracked into a billion pieces, releasing the trapped soul of the Dark Lord, Malhi Soltruc. Malhi tol Conlin where Davin was, but he also told him that his parents had not been shipped off to a penal colony, like the Imps had told Conlin, but rather had been brutally massacred, and their bodies incinerated. Using this information to turn Cinlin to the Dark Side, Malhi, also seeking revenge on the Imperials, led Conlin to the last Dark Trooper suit on Toleid XXI, which Conlin modified to fit himself. Now an unstoppable force, Conlin, joined with Malhi will reek havoc on the Empire for what they did to his family. He cannot be stopped; he will not be stopped.....

This level is intended for 2-4 players. There are a few stormtroopers here and there, just for good measure. This should make for good lightsaber dueling, and decent gunplay.

They are as follows: Halfman's Saber (see screenshot 1), the Shadowfiend Saber (see screenshot 2), the Rainbow Saber, and the Night Saber.

And I would really really appreciate all the criticism I can get, good or bad. I'll never be a good editor otherwise. One note: If you don't like my sabers... don't use them. But tell me what you don't like.

Description: Kyp Durron, newest Jedi Knight trainee to Luke's camp on Yavin 4, disillusioned after the murder of his brother Zeth on Carida by an Imperial Officer, and led by the spirit of the long dead Sith Lord Exar Kun, sets out on a journey of destruction and revenge against what he sees as the embodiment of the Empire. Admiral Daala. He knows he can not easily get on board her Star Destroyers without her knowing about it, so he goes about getting himself noticed so she will "invite" him aboard. 5 levels where the object isn`t just to blast from one end to the other, but has objectives to accomplish and problems to solve. You must remember to use the force, or you are unlikely to survive. Contains new characters, cutscenes, 3do`s, mats, cogs and the rest. My second released level, so kind reviews would be nice, also requires coloured lighting enabled. Am I the only female Jedder?

Author: AtomEnity
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: This is a small level with 12 respawn points. It has new 3dos and mats downloaded from this very site. It also supports both NF and FF. There are no powerups as I believe most people find it annoying to see someone they hit with fire 2 on a saber has just grabbed a revive. Besides, this is supposedly a abandoned Imperial base which was cleared out of within a few minutes - what was to prevent them from grabbing everything carriable and running?

Description: This level is a DM level based in a aircraft hangar, I think I have really improved my architecture skills here. There are 2 versions, one with the reflective floor, and one without. The reason for this is when it was going through the beta testing it was found that the floor caused random crashes. If you have an unstable computer, it is recommended that you run the version without the reflective floor.

New Jedi Knight Mod: Guardians of the Galaxy - Zecks @ 12:14 PM
File: Guardians of the Galaxy
Author: TIE
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: In an effort to enhance JK for optimal saber dueling, I've created "Guardians of the Galaxy:" -It speeds up the saber attacks (The .KEYs and the time in between them), replaces the big double slash with a quick twirl doing no more damage than any other attack, and reduces saber damage to lengthen duels (and balance it as a weapon due to swing speeds.) -It adds a Sith Saber, with new animations by myself. -There are new sounds for the Lightsaber, Sith Saber (different), and most force powers. -It adds the "force push" power, new gun bolts, and Glowsaber 3 technology on the sabers with all new saber models. -There are a bunch of great new skins for duel/robe/robe-with-hood with personal robe tints, and all new player models, including 9 of the 12 Jedi Council members. -There's a useful flip feature, wherin you tap force jump in the middle of a jump, and it performs a back/front flip, depending on direction, and gives you a little boost upwards. -Also, there's a special "Dramatic Music" function, which plays a file called "music.wav" in your resource/sound folder (you must supply it, see the documentation.) I must say, the the lightsaber is now a wonderful art. Dueling (as long as you don't have too much lag) can evolve into a strategic series of blocks, swings, and dodges, and my beta testers and I all agreed that, if played correctly, this can be considered a revamp of the saber system. The only advise I can give now is "don't stop swinging." Really..the game will block when it needs to in a duel, most of the time. Trust the force! (Also, to be noted: This patch requires a video card capable of displaying 16-bit mats.)
New MotS Multiplayer Level: Clad 65 - Zecks @ 12:22 PM
File: Clad 65
Author: Ozzarref
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: This is the MotS version of my previous level Clad 65. Certain areas were improved and colored lighting was added. Cogs were fixed. I'm satisfied with it now. Do not let the beautiful courtyards or the magnificient mountains fool you. Formerly an Imperial Power Plant, Clad 65 now serves as an arena of death and carnage. Only the universe's finest Jedis have the privledge to fight at Clad 65. However, not many make it out alive. Only the brutal and strong survive. Be very careful.
New Jedi Knight Single Player Level: Escape From Mera Himbgie - Zecks @ 12:51 PM
File: Escape From Mera Himbgie
Author: Otterbine Barebo
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: It's been almost three years since Kyle Katarn saved the galaxy from the evil madman, Jerec. It appears as though everything is on the up and up for the Republic. However, in a distant corner of the galaxy, the planet Mera Himbgie is home to about twenty thousand Imperial prisoners who have no idea that the Republic is as strong as it is. But, when you, Prisoner EX193878, hurt yourself in the mine, you decide that it is the perfect opportunity to escape. Visit the Tides Of The Force website at for more information.
New Jedi Knight Mod: Water Guns - Zecks @ 12:58 PM
File: Water Guns
Author: Psigen
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: This patch makes all the guns turn into water guns. However it DOES NOT make them stronger. It also changes the look of some things in the game and if you use the green or yellow saber you get a different saber.
New Jedi Knight Multiplayer Level: CaNYoN DuELz - Zecks @ 1:09 PM
File: CaNYoN DuELz
Author: JNO__MAuL_
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: A fairly large open canyon with basically two big cliffs and a jagged catwalk intercepting them... plus a water fall and a small cave... This level is meant for training NF sabers but is just as fun with FF. Includes some 16bit mats.
New Jedi Knight Multiplayer Level: Medieval Castle - Zecks @ 1:14 PM
File: Medieval Castle
Author: Elmo
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: This is a JK multiplayer level set in a medieval castle. It's the first level I am going to release. It was planned to be part of the '10th Kingdom' mod but it got dropped. This level is best played with force powers.
New Jedi Knight Multiplayer Level: Battle Ground Jedi EE - Zecks @ 1:20 PM
File: Battle Ground Jedi EE
Author: ICJ GeForce
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: This is an edited version of BGJ, that has more battling areas, and some bridges for some very high saber battles. I have also places some different items that can only be had by certain force powers and skill jumps. This level has some framerate drops in some areas, so if your running this game WITHOUT 3D acceleration, I wouldn't recommend this level to you.

New Jedi Knight Mod: Aftermath 4 - Zecks @ 5:09 PM
File: Aftermath 4
Author: Cave_Demon
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: Oh, no! Another Aftermath mod! Wait... This is something more. Suicide bomb is back with things such as radio phone, buying option, new weapons (ion cannon, heavy blaster, grenade launcher...), jumpjet , etc... What can I say? Download this! Note: This mod contains 2 16-bit mats, but it shouldn't matter even if you don't see the textures...
New Jedi Knight Multiplayer Level: Eon - Zecks @ 5:16 PM
File: Eon
Author: Nomi
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: "Time is of no concern. Battles have been fought, won and lost for millennia, but the war will continue on for Eons." Deathmatch has been brought to a new era. Eon, where you must not only think to survive, you must make sure your enemy doesn't think. With 4 strategically place teleports, where each movement between another is not quite the same, distracting your opponent can be as good as getting their attention. Designed for at least 4 players, where you have to know exactly where you opponents are at all times. Also amazing with team play, build up to ambushes, leading your enemy to his doom, striking blows and fading away. Watch them squirm as they wonder where the hell you are, watch them get confused as you appear out of thin air and watch them collapse as they make that final mistake. Don't get mad. Get even.
My Introduction - Zecks @ 5:27 PM
Well, I suppose it's time that I introduce myself. My name is Zecks, as you can see, and I am the new level poster here at the Massassi Temple. I will probably be doing most of the level posting here. If you have any questions or comments, email me.

Author: Ben Allen
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: Note - extremely important to read documentation. This is the complete version of James Bond v2.0. Bond is now played by Roger Moore, and he has several new weapons at his disposal: Walther PPK and P-99, a sniper rifle, and of course the Golden Gun (all of which have new 3dos since the last md). Also included are over 20 new multiplayer skins, including new CTF skins, and new BMs. I hope people like this one better than the last two versions!
New Jedi Knight Multiplayer Level: Warped Temple - Zecks @ 7:30 AM
File: Warped Temple
Author: Warped Newt
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: This is a JK multiplayer level based off the Goldeneye temple, the Perfect Dark temple, and my own creativeness to improve the level for Jedi Knight. It could support from 2-6 people, and there are plenty of secrets; especially a huge drop.

Author: The White Lightsaber
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: This level contains 16-bit mats! A 3D accelerator is required!! An 8-bit version is in the works... This is the well known level from Rare's Goldeneye N64 game. The level has all the guns in the original locations. To stay more true to Goldeneye and also raise tension, not very much protection is available. The lighting has also been improved from the Goldeneye level. Also, light sources have been added for more realism.
New Jedi Knight Multiplayer Level: SpacePort Thompson - Zecks @ 6:50 PM
File: SpacePort Thompson
Author: Ben Stopforth & Gavin Thompson
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2

Swigsy loves to drink and dance the night away, the bar in this level is where Swigsy can be found. The level consists of 5 main areas, a cargo bay, a control room/conference room, a bar (Swigsy's favourite) and dance area, a landing pad/docking bay and a smelting room.

File: Weapons Valley
Author: AtomEntity
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: This is a medium-sized level with a large amount of underground tunnels connecting the various areas. Every weapon is included in this level. This level is meant for Personalities. I won't tell you exactly how, but even for non-Jedi personalities there is a way to get everything. The story is an Assault Shuttle flew over this valley and suffered an explosion. It was full of various cargo, all of which fell into the valley. It is currently hovering just outside the cliff areas, badly damaged. Its cargo consisted of: (1) Crates full of nuclear waste that is fatal upon touch (2) Crates full of a classified substance with an unusual resistance to gravity (3) Crates full of slowly debilitating, radioactive waste and (4) Crates with no particular purpose. If you've read the Corellian Trilogy by Roger MacBride Allen, then you know which ancient race I'm about to tell you about. These unknown aliens supposedly implanted teleporting technology into this very valley, though nobody hasbeen able to prove it.
New Jedi Knight Multiplayer Level: Domain of the Jedi - Zecks @ 7:04 PM
File: Domain of the Jedi
Author: Evilution
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: To become a jedi, one must learn the ways of the force and learn the ways of the lightsaber. One must practice diligently, day in and day out. To be a true Jedi, one must use only the saber, and not other weapons. That is why I have actually taken out the blaster for this level. Because Jedi training takes hard work, the Jedi have set up a training facility for these needs. Who knows what secrets are contained within the... Domain of the Jedi.

One is made for the use of weapons such as repeater gun and concussion rifles. The other is made for the use of lightsaber only. At the end there is a small rest and relaxation room where you can grab a revive pack and chill.

New MotS Multiplayer Level: Team Battle - Zecks @ 9:24 AM
File: Team Battle
Author: AtomEntity
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: This is a new hybrid design of mine to encourage communication, cooperation, and teamwork. Though it is rare, the best way to play this is a 4v4, and cordially I have included eight respawn points (all in the lobby I'm about to mention) to provide space for players. You start in the Master Lobby (thank you Barons Hed RPG for the idea) and are presented with a choice: Blue or red? This doesn't actually change your team, as I couldn't find a cog for it, but it does spawn you on the respective side of the arena you've chosen. On the back wall of both side's base is a button. When pushed, this button will cause the release of a large amount of mines from ghost positions. There are enough mines to kill anyone in the base at least a meter away from the switch. I couldn't find a cog to keep score - sorry. Your job is to prevent this from happening. At the front of your base are two bunkers in which Ewebs are stored. The ammo for them is there too - it regenerates. The Eweb can fire through a slot in the wall in two arcs - forward, and left/right, depending upon its position. It can also fire backwards, out of the entrance, but why risk hitting your teammates? These Ewebs main job is to prevent the entrance of enemies into your base, and I have tried to position them so the Ewebs cannot shoot each other - I hope. If the enemy gets past the Ewebs, then there is a slot in the ground in front of the deadly button that leads to a storage room with every weapon except for the carb gun (I hate that carb gun!). I should mention, near the button is a console. Activating this console will change the gravity. There is a low, normal, and a high. There are also other, minimal defenses - the blue side has a pool of deadly sludge and a pit with spikes (the spikes are just for show, sorry) and the red team has simply two pits. These pits are deep enough that only a Jedi at low gravity can escape them - unless they don't have force jump. For other personalities, these pits are unescapable - but it's hard to get pushed into them, so big whoop. I hope you enjoy this!

This level was made for 2-4 players. It also comes with a mod that provides a boost in gameplay. The mod changes the bryar pistol, stormtrooper rifle, and bowcaster to a Wathler P99, an MP5, and an M-4 Carbine. This is the first level I have made in a very long time so don't be too hard on it.

Description: This is a medium sized multiplayer level suited for 4 to 8 players. It is set in the not so distant future, inside a technologically advanced missile silo. It houses a prototype called the Omega. Once again, weapons of such destructive force have become necessary to maintain peace around the globe. I'm not sure why anyone would logically have a reason for a deathmatch game near a nuclear warhead. But, if you've ever imagined blowing people up with such imminent danger present, this level caters to you. If you like this level, check out my other ones at-
New Jedi Knight Multiplayer Level: PaintBall Arena - Zecks @ 10:01 AM
File: PaintBall Arena
Author: Talanis
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: A small level for about 4-6 players. Its only got two guns, the bryar and the crossbow, but it has lots of ammo, and is extremly fun to play. There is a network of tunnels, accesed by holes in the ground. One way grates allow hunters to pop up out of no where, allowing for gurelia warfare. Recommended force jump, as there is a special spot to get to, if you have force jump. No health or shields, but there is a secret area that has a bacta room. Just stand and it recharges your health. This is my second level, so please bare with me, I am getting better (I think). Special thanks to the 3do and mats sections on; without them, the level wouldn't look the same.
