NOTE: EAXSOUND need to be activated for ROQ videos.
Epic Challenge Mod III is the third mod of my creation for SP.
"Darth Lawn (ECMI villain) raised from the grave and conquered the galaxy, using the Zone Of Trouble, an ancient and absurd Area full of portals which allow the user to travel around differents worlds in instant. Kyle Katarn must stop him, but he will not success alone...
With the help of Luke Skywalker, Lana and Duncan, will you be able to accomplish your destiny ?"
This mod takes things in another level. I would say mapping has improved, game design also, and maps are a lot more various.
In this one, I created A LOT of new ennemies, sometimes 4 just for one map. I offer variety, different worlds, more than 32 maps to play (and replay ! "South Plain" is a central map which allow you to revisit some ancient maps, keeping your progress and update...), the possibility to get new powers (like metamorphosis on certains platforms), mind control and something new: you will not play only Kyle, but you will be able to play also Lana and Duncan, two invented characters.
Game is based from UbiSoft's underrated Tonic Trouble and from my mind.
There are some bugs and things to know, so READ THE IMPORTANT.TXT file before playing ! Trust me, it's important.
JUST NEED TO TALK ABOUT SOME OF THEM HERE:
- When you are a reborn you can't jump very high, so not forget to explore all secrets zones in Kyle. You'll understand.
- There is a bug in one map, you have a blue lightsaber instead of the violet one. The bug only occures in one map.
I would also say that I advice you to wait one second at least at every map begining because there are sometimes .roq cinematics.
Cinematics and voiceovers are not quite good, I admit it... it's more a test, because it's new, but I had fun making it, with the others persons who played the voices, so I think you'll find it funny... or akwardly fun...
The secrets are not like ECMI and ECMII. In this one, you'll find "E" letters, from "Epic Challenge Mod". Every time you found one, just screen it, send me it on JKHUb (personnal message) and say how you found it. Every time you do this you'll get points. "Blue E" are 5pts, "red E" 10pts and "green E" 50pts.
There are only three green E in the mod. If you found them, very good !
NOTE: If a "E" color change, it means it's a new "E" and you can screen it again.
So enjoy it, and may the force be with you !!!
TO INSTALL THE MOD,
extract all files in your game directory (LucasArts/Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy/gamedata/)
Make sure you put all files and folders in gamedata. You must have ECMIII pk3 in "gamedata/ECMIII"
I HIGHLY recommand you to make an empty copy of JKA before playing my mod, because it is huge and adapted to an empty basegame. I can't assure you it will work if you have 137 .pk3 in your base/ folder...
This is only compatible with Windows.
You need all ECMIII gamedata files to not get an error. So not forget to make a copy of your gamedata folder before overwriting it with my files.
TO PLAY WITH CORRECT LIGHTSABERS (FOR ENNEMIES), PLEASE DOWNLAOD THESE TWO LITTLE FILES:
