I think you can leave masked Kylo alone in there, I think most people (including myself) just want the maskless version updated to TLJ or TROS with the higher detail. 

I cannot upload better head model because it is ported. I have to keep original Plasma's head.

I had no idea that the team was working not just on recreating iconic duels, but what could also be regarded as the definitive Star Wars mod for Jedi Academy. The title "Movie Duels" makes this mod appear smaller than it actually is. Once it's out, I'm downloading it.

The Christmas Update has arrived for Movie Duels! After more than a year in development, hopefully it will have been worth the wait! We've put a lot into this update to make up for not having a may release this year, including a menu overhaul, our first original trilogy mission, updated saber combat, and more!

Thanks for waiting, and have a very merry Christmas!

Changelog:
 

Spoiler

Update 4:

///USER INTERFACE OVERHAUL\\\
The user interface/menus in Movie Duels has been overhauled greatly to look much, much nicer, easier to use, and provide
the user with a better experience overall! It's so massive that it's listed off in it's own seperate changelog, so it's
recommended that you read that to get a good look at everything that's changed!

///MISSIONS\\\

Episode I Duels:

Duel Of The Fates:
- Added extended ending for Jedi POV, Anakin's acceptance for Jedi Training!
- Added new credits music for Sith POV!
- Upgraded music track quality from Youtube rips to FLAC sourced!
- Obi-Wan is no longer invincible in the mission for Sith POV.

Episode II Duels:

Tusken Camp Massacre:
- Added saber burn and kick sound when Anakin is entering a Tusken's hut.
- Added missing bracket textures.
- Reverted 05/21/2019 Music volume boosts due to making the music sound too loud and clip a lot!

The Count's Retreat:
- Removed the little playable portion in the intro for Obi-Wan/Anakin/Yoda's POV, rather pointless and adds nothing to the mission aside from making it longer to get to the dooku fight,
and be able to teamkill Anakin via making him back off over the ledge.
- Added new Cutscene Videos for both POV's endings and added new credits music!
- Reverted 05/21/2019 Music volume boosts due to making the music sound too loud and clip a lot!
- Fixed a few things in the mission, like Anakin not being shocked by Lightning and Obi-Wan blocking/dodging the Lightning at the same time.
- Upgraded Dusk Coruscant skybox quality!

Episode III Duels:

Arrest the Chancellor:
- Upgraded the office with Sith-J-Culley's Chancellor's Office map!
- Upgraded music quality of some music tracks, and added a new fight theme to Anakin vs Windu!
- Added dialogue between Anakin and Windu during their fight!

Attack on the Jedi Temple:
- Updated skyboxes to be higher quality!
- Updated JT March cutscene with improved camera angles, marching sound effect, and Order 66 cutscene showing Jedi dying across the galaxy!

Assassination on Mustafar:
- Upgraded Mustafar Space skybox and Mustafar skybox to be much higher quality and more accurate!

Masters of the Force:
- Upgraded music tracks to be higher quality!

Battle of the Heroes:
- Added new Cutscene Video for Obi-Wan's ending!
- Synced music during the High Ground cutscene in Part 2 to match up with the film's music in ROTS!
- Added ending theme to Anakin's victory in Part 2 (Post Obi-Wan Death)!
- Updated credits music with EP3's ending credits!

EPISODE IV DUELS:

Obi-Wan's Last Stand:
- A new mission taking place abroad the Death Star, where Obi-Wan confronts his former student for the last time!

TFU Duels:

Starkiller's Last Trial:
- Now an official mission instead of being a bonus mission in extras!
- Rebalanced the first four waves to have a more similar enemy setup to TFU's Combat modules, and for improved balancing/performance.
- Each wave now includes a transition between each one to allow some breathing room and have better presentation.

Forgotten Heritage:
- Now an official mission instead of being a bonus mission in extras!

Rescuing the Rebels:
- Renamed the mission from A New Hope to Rescuing the Rebels for better clarity and less confusion with the new ANH mission menu!
- Fixed Starkiller having the wrong hilt during the third cutscene and Light Side Ending cutscene!
- Fixed the light side ending cutscene for Starkiller's ending POV and the bonus mission's ending POV so that it's no longer broken by NPCs having a FP meter!
- Updated light side ending music to sync up better with the cutscene.
- Added TFU end credits music for Light Side and Dark Side credits.

Wrath of the Empire:
- A new mission taking place on Hoth within Echo Base, in an Alternate Reality where Starkiller became the Emperor's new servant, and faces off against Luke Skywalker!

Miscellaneous:
- Each mission (with the exception of extras missions) will now end on a mission statistics screen, with stats
borrowed from JKA's mission statistics screen, mod credits on the side, and map dependant background music!
This should also reduce the chore of skipping credits whenever you complete a mission!

Can someone help me? I'm having issues with my game starting. the "MovieDuels" screen comes up and is unresponsive for a moment before it goes to the menu.

Once in the launcher menu the mouse disappeared and a repetitive clicking is heard. after that there's nothing at all.

Wonderfull Mod thanks MD Team!

But i have a question: I notice that on a random map the red laser blasters work but the blue laser blasters dont or the rocket launcher dont work, no effect 😞

Another random map just the red laser blasters work, another blasters no effect. I can kill without the effect, but it is not good.

I love create battles but I can't because this 😞

I try that I save the game and load and load and load... but not fixing.

Any technics or code or something?

 

Thanks the answer!

We still have to figure out why is this happening. Could be some code limitations, maybe too many effects... we dont know. It is pretty annoying I agree.

In my opinion about the MOD: it is fantastic, this ins't just a MOD it is a new game now. I really hope that the blasters no effect will be fix, that is the first important thing + is is just for my fun I hope Jace Solaris add his Cloack invertory item to the MD, because cloack is a very usefull and important item for the created spy battles.

I very interesting for 2021 updates!

 

Thanks again the MOD!

Sorry if this isn't the correct thread to post in, but I've got a few bugs to report from tonight.

Some of the Praetorian Guards don't have textures in challenge mode. The Shadowguard also appears to be missing his saberpike and Sariss (and a few others) don't have the correct tag to use their lightsaber (it defaults to the cultist short saber). The Tavion_Scepter NPC is also dual wielding the Scepter and T-posing, only firing blaster shots.

I've attempted a fresh install and still have these coming up, so I don't think they're unique to my end. 😞

*Update*

Big issues with blocking in the JKA combat style. It's almost like there's full block animations missing. Even with saber defense set to 3 or 9, there's no block for head on blaster shots. I've tested with basic imperial offices and they can shoot me down within a few shots.

Really enjoying this mod.

Why is the Geonosis Arena, which is accessible in Missions, not a Duel Map though? It's a surprise.

I'm really enjoying this, and hoping we can see a few more Legends characters added. Jacen, Jaina, Anakin, Ben etc.

Takes a shit ton of trial and error and I nearly hung myself over transferring UV Unwraps for the lightmaps between one version and another - sadly this took out a lot of my time for another project I had hoped to help out with - but maybe I'll be able to keep up with the pace now that I got back into it properly.

Btw... Movie Duels Developers - did your coders change anything with regards to dynamicGlow / rendering of Fog / OpenGL blendFuncs? Because I had tried to make this map look good in BaseJKA / OpenJK - not with the Movie Duels fork.

If so and you remember what it is, PM me and I might be able to work around it.

EAGLE Soundmesh also works now.

FPS I presume is still horrible though with all the fog and EFX - I'll try my best to make this run on potato PCs
