This is a text file that I created that could be useful for SP level editors. It has a description of what all the speech sound files in JK/MotS are. This can be used for scripted events, cutscenes, or just when you enter a certain sector. The next version will have the sounds for the major characters (JK Kyle, MotS Kyle, MotS Mara) divided up into sections (locked messages, snide comments, item messages etc).
Our very reliable source inside LucasArts has acquired even more information on Episode I: Obi-Wan. He has the following information to pass on:LucasArts is still anticipating a first-half 2000 release date for the game. Further, we're expecting to formally unveil the game to the media in early 2000, not September 1999.I guess all of the anxious gamers that were looking for a preview next month will just have to wait until the year 2000.
Development for the game is proceeding quite well and we continue to anticipate a great deal of enthusiasm from the media and game players when we show Obi-Wan for the first time early next year.

Hello all, GhentZ from the Literature section here! At the SW panel on Friday the 13th at the San Diego Comic Con, some LucasArts product news was announced. According to W. Haden Blackman, the writer for the Behind the Magic, Insider's Guide, and The Phantom Menace computer programs and game, as well as the author of the upcoming Episode I Technical Journal, this is the current schedule for upcoming LucasArts releases:I really look forward to Obi-Wan and Force Commander...
The Phantom Menace for Playstation in September 1999
Racer to iMac in early October 1999
Obi-Wan for PC in the first half of 2000
Force Commander in late fall 1999
Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine in late fall 1999
He went on to say that "We have several other games in development . . . a number of them are Episode I-related and others speak to Star Wars in general."
Hmmm, if I had to speculate, I'd say that there's a flight-sim in there somewhere. I'd sure love an N-1 fighter game! :-D He could not comment on the titles in development, but we were assured that they would be lots of fun. Mr. Blackman also stated that since development kits had not yet been given to LucasArts by Dolphin's (Nintendo) and Dreamcast's (Sega) makers, they had no works in progress on those platforms as of now.
