New MotS Mod: Saber Battle X - MotS 3.0 - mscbuck @ 4:17 PM
File: Saber Battle X - MotS 3.0
Author: ShadowX
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: Changes in v3.0:

  • In-game message and player list font is clearer and easier to read.
  • Sith lightsaber featuring new moves, sounds, color change, and light motion trail capability is added to the Bowcaster weapon slot. Note that it is slightly weaker than the lightsaber, but allows for the most finesse in your attacks.
  • Long lightsaber featuring color change and light motion trail capability is added to the Concussion Rifle weapon slot. Since the energy is extended twice as long as a normal lightsaber, damage is the least and attacks are somewhat more limited in terms of finesse, but the incredible range more than makes up for that.
  • New and improved lightsaber blades and motion trails to more closely reflect the style of the movie effects.
  • Five lightsaber fighting stances for the single-bladed sabers and two for the Sith saber can be toggled at will.
  • Lightsaber damage of all sabers can be turned on or off for the purposes of training.
  • New lightsaber hilts per saber color for the single-bladed lightsabers.
  • Four new single-bladed lightsaber moves and old double slash reassignment.
  • Force Saber Throw is now quasi-controllable and much more useful. All lightsabers can be thrown and the path they travel in the air depends on which direction you're moving (if at all). Since the lightsaber remains on the entire time (unless you switch it off or switch weapons), the amount of damage and range possible are more realistic. Consequently, thrown sabers can also be blocked by other Jedi or Sith and can pass through people, walls, and objects.
  • I've added and replaced many skins and have fixed many errors. Also, they all have their correct right hands now-finally, no more Kyle hands on everyone!
  • Much more!

New Jedi Knight Mod: GoldenEye - mscbuck @ 9:14 PM
File: GoldenEye
Author: ID_Junkguy and ID_Matt
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: This mod is based on the GoldenEye game from N64.
Weapons include the hand with karate chops, PP7 and DD44 Dostovei with nice reload animations and sounds, Proximity Mines which can explode when a person comes near or when you shoot it, the Phantom, KF7 Soviet, Rocket Launcher, Moonraker Laser, AR33 Assault Rifle, and Watch with tranquilizer darts and grappling hook. There are many features as well as secrets. You can set a hotkey to aim with the red crosshairs, which also allows you to zoom when you have a rifle. You can listen to Control Center music or your own custom music files from another hotkey. There are blood effects such as blood drops and blood pools, which can be disabled by turning on Paintball Mode from the options. Another feature, which was originally intended to be a secret, allows you to create Stormtroopers that use Moonraker Lasers. There are also two other secrets that don't affect gameplay, but are for additional enjoyment. There are also new skins of the different James Bond actors, realistic sounds, projectiles, 3dos, and much more. This is our best mod ever. For more information about the weapons and features, or to download more music for the music feature, visit the GoldenEye Mod website
Jedi Knotes #4 - Brandon @ 3:37 PM
A few days ago LucasArts posted the fourth installment of Jedi Knotes, the developer diary for Jedi Knight II. Here's what most people seem to be interested in:
Perhaps the most exciting new feature is the Lightsaber Combat. We've developed an entire system of play that is controlled by your movements and actions. You can chain together attacks, flips, rolls, wall jumps and back flips in deadly combinations. Lightsaber blocking allows you to defend against oncoming blaster shots and enemy lightsaber attacks. We've enhanced the third person camera controls to really show off the Lightsaber combat as well.
You can read the whole thing here, which goes on to mention some of the features in the game and the dynamic music system.

Etc. - blujay @ 9:23 AM
Well, I finally took the holiday logos off of the front page...about a week late. But they were awfully good. I think I have one or two more to post that were late corrections; they'll be put on the logos page and announced here.

I also have quite a few e-mails to respond to about bans from downloading levels, mostly from AOL users. Don't fret, because 99% of the time you are caught in someone else's ban. I'll try to respond to all of those e-mails today.

Four Levels Deleted - blujay @ 5:43 PM
The JK MP levels Cantina, Kerimbay, Dudie, and dudie_se have been deleted because their author has continually abused the level comment and rating system by registering over twenty junk names, making junk comment after junk comment, and rating levels, including his own, many times.

  • Lightsaber coding is improved in various ways.
  • Force Saber Throw replaces Force Speed. It is quasi-controllable and much more useful.

Since the lightsaber remains on the entire time (unless you switch it off or switch weapons), the amount of damage and range possible are more realistic. Consequently, thrown sabers can also be blocked by other Jedi or Sith and can pass through people, walls, and objects.
  • Force Push replaces Force Throw. It has been made more stable and is able to push ANYTHING-actors, droids, debris, items, and projectiles.
  • I've added and replaced many skins and have fixed many errors. Also, they all have their correct right hands now-finally, no more Kyle hands on everyone! Speaking of Kyle, his model is entirely new, 16-bit, and completely matches the cutscenes!
  • Much more!

LucasArts has updated the official JK2 site with several new screenshots, info on a new weapon, and three new questions in the FAQ. So head on over and check it out!

Thanks to ZeroXcape and Jedi Legend for letting us know.
Clarification - Brandon @ 1:19 PM
ZeroXcape from JKII.net let us know that Kenn Hoekstra stopped by their forums to clarify some of the information from the German magazine preview mentioned two days ago. Here's what he had to say:
I just want everyone to know that there are "over" 20 levels and "over" 10 weapons. Keep in mind, too, that 64 players is the theoretical limit of players in Quake 3, assuming everyone has uber hardware to run the server and the bandwidth to support it. I think 32 players is a more reasonable estimate and I think that in most games 16 or 24 is more realistic/practical.

Description: This is a medium-large sized Multiplayer level intended for 2-6 players. It is set in a sand-filled tomb where not everything is as it seems. Keep your eyes open for subtle clues that may lead you to very rewarding secrets. This level was intended for SABERS ONLY. No weapons of any kind can be found in this level. It is also of extreme importance that you use either GotG(ME), SBX, Spork or any other mod containing a grapple for the sake of being able to access all of the secret areas. A TON of work has been put into this level, I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

But the police are looking for him, and finding a ship without any money isn't exactly simple. Maybe he could ring at the door of the local crimeboss and his former contracter Lillithon... Hake doesn't realize he's part of a game of power and corruption; and the disc he tried to steal before he was caught is the key to everything...

JK2 Saber Moves - Brandon @ 4:20 PM
ZeroXcape sent word that Michael Chang Gummelt, the lead gameplay programmer from Raven, dropped by the JediKnightII.net forums and commented on how the lightsaber is going to work. Here's what he said:
There are 8 standard (directional) saber moves per style (for a total of 24), plus 2 special attacks per style, and a good deal of acrobatic moves. There are approximately 300 individual lightsaber animations (if you include all the transitions - each attack can transition smoothly to any other attack) totalling around 3500 frames of animation, just for the lightsaber...
Check out more at the thread & JKII.net.
Yet Another - Brandon @ 4:25 PM
Thanks to shiny who let us know that GameSpy has recently named JK2 as one of the most wanted games of the year and has followed up with a preview.
JK2 Official Site Updates - Brandon @ 4:36 PM
The Official Jedi Knight II Site has updated with new NRI reports, icons, and Jedi Knotes #5 which talks about the sounds of JK2. Here's a clip:
One of the first things you will notice is the high fidelity of the voice, music and sound in the game. Higher data rates and MP3 technology allowed us to approach a film-quality soundtrack for this title. Drawing from the wealth of Skywalker Sound's Star Wars sound effects collection as well as designing custom effects, the vehicles, weapons and locations will come to life as never before.
[Insert Verb Here] - Kedri @ 7:37 AM
Hideki dropped us a line earlier letting us know about the vast progress he's made on his COG Verb List project. In his own words:
The Cog Verb List I have been working on recently has been updated majorly, this time giving you the ENTIRE list of cog verbs from the Jedi Knight engine, thanks to Code-Alliance for the many descriptions.

For people who don't know about it yet, it's a system to share your experiences on each of the verb's usages. Anyone can post and read the comments on each verbs and share anything you found with other people.

The page is now huge with 455 entries but in the future I'll make some verb categorization and narrow the page size.

If you have anything to share on a specific verb, go right here and post away!
Let's hope the categorizing comes sooner rather than later; the table takes a while to download on dial-up. Apart from that, this thing is awesome! Great work, Hideki!

Author: BIG_MAG

Description: Well here it finally is! I took the old AtStv7.0 and did a little remodeling. For starters I'll go over some bug fixes: -Thanks to SaberMaster, I found a way to fix the external view to a good postion behind the player. -AtSt now has the size and movesize of a regular AtSt, so now it can only be affectively used in an open area. -When in the AtSt, you no longer have to crouch to pick up items. -AtSt can now only be selected under weapons #3 and #5. -Distortion when switching between models has been significantly cut down. Unfortunatley, it can't be totally eliminated because it's changing between two pup files. -Only the crossbow shoots wide now because you're using the AtSt's secondary cannons. -Took away machine gun look on repeater. -Don't try and use the AtSt in a confined space. -Matrix Teleport now replaces force seeing and has a mana cost. -Boba Fett isn't magsealed or immune to physical damage, only the AtSt is magsealed. New features: -You play as Boba Fett under all weapons except #3 and #5. -Matrix Teleport (Good for surprising people) -New external view -Force Teleport (For free) -Grappling Hook (Can only be used with Boba Fett) -Jetpack (Can only be used with Boba Fett) Needless to say, you shouldn't have any trouble getting around! New Weapons: -Play the game, they're pretty self explanatory. Permissions: Everything used in here has either been used under permission or the author(s) have been given credit for their work.

New Jedi Knight Single Player Level: Best Lum Guide - mscbuck @ 4:58 PM
File: Best Lum Guide
Author: Jensyx
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: Kyle's butt hurt. How long was this debriefing going to take! The woman across from him winked at him. They had been flirting on and off all through the meeting. She had blonde hair and a quite serious face. She reminded him of Sariss. Ugh, that wasn't a memory he wanted bringing back! He had had to go to the psychologist for over a year to get over it when he hacked her up. Sariss had told Kyle that his guilt was purely because of a physical attraction, and if he kept away from blondes, he would feel better. Meanwhile, he related to the Commander how he had infiltrated the base and put a hole in Fortra's head. This level (as you can probably tell from the story) is a little silly. It is a product of the many newbie levels released on Massassi with their similar themes and stories. Although I made the architecture passable, the actual design and layout is your standard Imperial Base (TM). You'll spend all your time meandering through the labyrinth hallways and avoiding merciless death at the hands of the twenty stormtrooper legions. All in the name of searching for a few keys. All to steal a couple of crates of beer. I hope you enjoy it... or at least I hope you don't scream in anger as soon as you load it up....
Updates at the Limelite - Kedri @ 3:42 PM
Whilst making one of my rare appearances in the #massassi chatroom, MaDaVentor let me know about the latest updates to his site, The Limelite.

Millennium Cog Verb List - Brandon @ 3:16 PM
Here's what Hideki has to say:
The cog verb list project has been going well and now I have made the categorization system, which is able to do the following:
  • Filter by cog category (as in jkspec cog category)
  • Filter by the first letter of the cog verb name
  • Filter by the number of comments
I hope this is better than showing the whole big list at once. If you have any tips on a cog, please visit.
JK2 Site Updates - Brandon @ 3:22 PM
A few days ago LucasArts posted a new screenshot on the official site which shows off an ingame cutscene. They've also updated today with two new additions to the FAQ:
2.07 Are you planning to have cheat protection for Jedi Outcast multiplayer?
Id Software® has put a lot of anti-cheat protection code into Quake III: Team Arena and we've implemented all of it into Jedi Outcast's code base along with a few other cheat protection features. In addition, there are menu options to kick players from servers and to password protect your server so only friends and trusted players can join in the event that cheating does occur.

3.11 Can you use your fists as a weapon in Jedi Outcast?
The default weapon in Jedi Outcast is the stun baton, not the fists. Kyle begins the game with a stun baton and his trusty Bryar Blaster Pistol. As such, there is no need to resort to fisticuffs.
Thanks to the predator and Chewbubba for making sure we knew about it.
