About This File

Author: Steven Brown (Blaster)

Date Of Release: August 2004

Description:

This is the sequel to my singleplayer map 'The Dark Alliance'. If you have not yet played 'The Dark Alliance' then I suggest you download and play it before you play this one. Also you may want to play 'The Mainframe 2.0' before you  play 'The Dark Alliance' to have the ultimate experience. 

You can get them from the following websites:

The Mainframe

The Dark Alliance

I hope you enjoy the final part of the Dark Alliance Trilogy just as much as I did making it. - Blaster

Story:

After the events at Narshaddaa the New Republic found that Tavion had somehow been able to clone Darth Vader. The Vader Clones are now being used as frontline troops for the Dark Alliance forces. With the death of their leader Tavion, the Dark Alliance are somehow still able to function and are taking control of countless star systems throughout the galaxy. The Jedis numbers are thin but with the help of Luke Skywalker and Kyle Katarn, the Jedi are still managing to hold their own against the almighty Dark Alliance.

The New Republic now fear that the Dark Alliance may close in and try to seize the power from the Valley of the Jedi. This must not be allowed to happen. And so the New Republic have decided that it is time for the Valley to be destroyed.

Countless Jedi Knights now keep watch over the demolition operation to hold back any attack that may come from the Dark Alliance.

The New Republic have enlisted the help of Mara Jade to also assist with the operation and she is now traveling to the Valley of the Jedi to witness the destruction of the main Valley's fountain of power.

FEAR IS THE PATH TO THE DARK SIDE. FEAR LEADS TO ANGER, ANGER LEADS TO HATE, HATE LEADS TO SUFFERING. - JEDI MASTER YODA

Installation Information & Playing Notes:

Make sure you have the latest patch for the game!

Using Winzip or WinRAR, unzip the 'Vots' folder and the 'Vots.bat' file into the 
JK3/GameData folder. Then simply double click the 'Vots.bat' icon to play.

Once installed I recommend seeing how the game will be easier using either the staff or dual 
lightsabers that it may be best playing the game on 'Jedi' difficulty with the single saber 
and play the game on 'Jedi Knight' difficulty while using the saber staff or dual sabers.

When selecting the single saber style please note that the style you decide to choose will be
the only fighting style you will use throughout the whole level!

<<<!!!MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ENABLED SUBTITLES IN THE GAME OPTIONS MENU, AS THEY ARE NEEDED 
FOR THE CUTSCENE DIALOGUE!!!>>>

Construction Information:

Known Bugs: If there are any slowdowns try turning off 'dynamic glow' in the 'video options' menu. 

You may want to skip certain cutscenes by pressing the use button. However the screen may appear to freeze but will have the words 'skipping cinematic' at the top. It hasn't froze, this is normal. You should just be patient and allow the cutscene to skip, which will happen after a few seconds.
    
When part 4 is loading you may or may not have some problems. The briefing screen may freeze or you may get a 'CL_GetServerCommand:a reliable command was cycled out' error that will prevent you from going onto part 4. If this happens then you can try one of four things.

  1. Bring down the console with the combination of the 'left shift' and ` keys and then type in "map part_4" without the quotes and then press enter. If this doesn't work then try again but as it is trying to load, hit the 'escape' key to return back to the main menu and then try the above console command from the main menu.
  2. Quit the game and then reload the level.
  3. Restart the computer
  4. Reinstall the game and/or the MOD.

The Dark Alliance series is one of the best SP story mods for JK2 and JKA. I remember I played this one first, before realizing it was part of a series, and it still holds its own as a standalone story. I'll never forget the first time I played it. Playing as Mara was so cool, and seeing the conversations between her, Luke, and Kyle was such an awesome feeling. Highly recommend at least checking this one out, but definitely play all 3 if you have the chance.
