Ladies and gentlemen, the Jedi Knight Screensaver project is now active once again! You can now send your entries to the e-mail address JKScreensaver@hotmail.com.
Due to the delay, the deadline is now the end of February, and I will still accept post-deadline entries as long as they keep coming. Don't forget to include your name and any other info you want included with your pics, like "Stormtrooper Slaughter by Ninja Monkey". Also, convert the file from PCX to BMP or JPG/JPEG if you can, if not I'll try to do it.
A few tips for picture taking: turn off the crosshair and HUD, and cover up the "Screenshot Taken" words if you can. They make for a more professional-looking pic. Also, when you stand still the camera rotates around you. Experiment with it. If you can, make it a group effort. Get some friends together for some interesting multiplayer pics. Finally, doctored pics are accepted and encouraged. Jerec in a tutu? Kell Dragons doing the macarena? Send it in!
After a long pause (sorry for that), the JK Depot has finally updated. We have added a new poll asking which pet is best, and released the results of our past poll. See our site for the info. We have also updated the mailbag and added a new topic. This week's topic is "What do you like to do for fun besides playing/editing JK?" and you can send all mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We also have about three guides and an interview on the way.
In this article we’ll take a look at story development in several top-notch games, and talk to the industry giants behind them: Marc Laidlaw of Valve Software (Half-Life), Justin Chin of Infinite Machine (Jedi Knight while with LucasArts), and Tim Schafer, formerly of LucasArts (Grim Fandango).I love reading through these types of articles... Thanks JL.
Here's the perfect accessory to your modern Jedi Knight lifestyle, the new DarkJedi Screen Saver (147kb) It's only a version 0.1 beta, so it's a bit rough, and you may have trouble with it. If so, please write and tell me about it. Hopefully, any problems will be fixed as I learn more about these fiendish things!
