About This File

Author: Steven Brown (Blaster)

Date Of Release: July 2002

Description:

This is the first in a trilogy of mods. The sequels are:

The Dark Alliance

The Dark Alliance II: Vengeance of the Sith

This is the second version of my single player level 'The Mainframe'. Most players found Vader to be too tough in the original version and found it could have been bigger. Well now IT IS! There are now two maps, one called part 1 and the other called part 2. Part 2 will be familiar to all those who have played the original. I don't want to spoil any surprises, so what are you waiting for go play!

Story:

Kyle and Luke have found that Tavion has somehow resurrected Darth Vader. Luke decides to go to Kejim alone and defeat his father once again. At the meantime Kyle must try and find out where Tavion is hiding. However Kyle senses a disturbance in the force and feels that Luke is in trouble. Kyle decides to go to Kejim and help out Luke.
             
Kyle arrives at the Imperial outpost on Kejim. Luke's ship is there but he is nowhere in sight. However Kyle can sense were he went and follows his trail. Just as he is about to enter the base a Reborn and two stormtroopers come through a door followed by a familiar droid sound approaching from behind. This is it there is no turning back. Can you defeat Darth Vader? or will you fail and allow Vader to bring about the rebirth of the empire. 

DO OR DO NOT, THERE IS NO TRY. - Jedi Master Yoda

Mission Objectives:

  1. Kill Darth Vader
  2. Engage all Remnant troops in the area
  3. Find Luke
  4. Escape with Luke alive

Installation Information:

Simply put the Mainframe 2.0.pk3 file in your jedioutcast/gamedata/Mainframe 2.0 directory, load up the game goto the 'Setup' menu and click on 'Mods' then click on Mainframe 2.0 and then click 'Load Mod'. Then bring down the console and type in "map part_1" (without the quotes). If at any time you just wish to play part 2 type in the console "map part_2" (without the quotes).

Using the 'Mods' menu will allow you to put in the Reborn Advanced and Vader.

If you don't know how to bring down the console goto the Jedi Outcast main menu and press the ` key and the left shift key together.

If you wish to quit the credits at the end either press your use button to speed them up or bring down the console and type "quit" (without the quotes).


Construction Information:

Vis Time:   About 45 Minutes for both maps
Build Time: About 50 hours
Known Bugs: While fighting the Advanced Reborn you may hear Kyle say the line "Strange he looked like a Jedi and fought like a Jedi etc." This is supposed to happen only when you have defeated him but for some reason he just says it sometimes. At one point he even said it four times! It seems to happen not that often though. Another bug which has happened only twice is some kind of sound problem. What happens is the game will stop and return to the main menu with a 'sound input out of range' type of error. I don't know what this is but it happened twice when I was destroying the probe droids with a saber throw. It happens very rarely though and if it happens with you then just restart the level and play again. Hopefully the problem won't happen again on your second go.

Author Notes: My apologies to all the people who were annoyed with the fact that Vader took about 600 hits to kill him in version 1.0. Now Vader's hit points are 4000 and Luke's are 2500. Vader is still tough but should take less time to kill. Vader and Luke only spawn when you are going up the elevator. This should fix the Luke dying straight away bug.

The Dark Alliance series is one of the best SP story mods for JK2 and JKA, and The Mainframe is the one that kicked that off. It shows it's age nowadays but it's still a gem of a mod. Highly recommend checking it out if you never have, along with the rest of the series.
