  1. I feel like most requests made these days here are just for the sake of requesting, not actually planning on using.

      This is actually an interesting thought, another case scenario is they just might be collectors.

    3. Cerez

      Or simply because it's fun to speak and share their ideas -- without ever seriously taking into account how much time and work it would take to actually make something like what they are requesting...

    4. Ping

      I don't understand requests anyway.

  2. What happened to all the staff? This place is getting messy. :P

      there are fun jokes about the word (Staff / Staff (the saber))

  3. Is the chat font size something that can be changed from the assets, or via code? Can't find it anywhere.

      and now? The PM limit for members is a lot lower than staff apparently. :P

      Yep worked :D

  4. A word to the wise: we can tell if you falsify your download count for files. So don't do it.

      Pure realism has been attempted by some games, yeah. There's a point where it just takes away from the fun factor. I'm thinking of survival games where you have to literally find food and water and sleep regularly or else you become sick and die, PLUS trying to progress in the game's story. There are only a few games like that and it's usually a bonus option rather than default.

      As far as lightsabers go, I think JKA and JK2 are the only games to get it close. Turning on dismemberment helps with that, but that fact that you can take out a stormtrooper with one swing is pretty accurate, and is why I love SP as much as I do. I shouldn't need to spend a good 5 minutes button mashing the attack button to kill one person. :P

    4. Ping

      I was about to say that JK2 had a good explanation for taking long to kill enemies: The sith in the dark armor wear an anti-lightsaber alloy or whatever it was. But then again, reborns fight in robes and take a while, as do all the bosses. Bushido Blade is good, but wouldn't work in a JKA setting. Also, survival games are fantastic (arma), but again, they're more of a simulation than an action game and wouldn't work very well with SW.

  5. Is it just me or is jk2files.com down completely?

      I've been playing old maps recently and was thankful that maps like, sithcouncil v2 and countryAcademy are uploaded here, among with many other classics :D

      maybe people could do some articles about mods : their development, their team, the features of the mod, the good and bad points.

      There are japlus and mbii, but there is a lot of mods (realJedi mod, ForceMod, DarkForceMod, ...)

    3. Ping

      Ping

      I was planning a series of articles a long time ago before Mog ended up being a massive, inconsiderate dick and deleting my first few ones. I might revisit this idea, now that you mention it.

    4. Nuhallis

      Nuhallis

      Do some clan/community spot lights o.o

  7. I got lightsaber chopsticks in the mail. I didn't order lightsaber chopsticks.

  8. Mod sharing confirmed for Fallout 4 console version!

  9. Downloads should be restored.

      A member's day in the spotlight. It's a nice touch. Great work! :)

       

      One day we'll have to do one with you, too! :D

      I agree, Circa has been doing admin stuff forever and it would be nice to hear his side of things.

  11. New Battlefront trailer!

      I watched this in the back of my car while my girlfriend was awkwardly making conversation with my mother. My jaw dropped.

      I don't know, I only overheard them in the other room. :P

      Teach them, then ask for a bonus. :D

    4. JAWSFreelao

      JAWSFreelao

      You should totally teach them. Ten you will become GOD TO THEM and rule with an iron fist.

  14. Apparently people don't read very well, but JKHub is not going anywhere. Our free web hosting service is gone. That's all.

    1. Rooxon

      Rooxon

      haha well it seems some people joined, that's for sure but... imagine if all the guests would join at once. Daaamn. Like, everyone that bought the humble bundle. Crazy stuff, über crazy.. :P

  15. The tutorials system has successfully been updated with lots of bug fixes. Can you people do us a favor and test it?

      but I went around these problems the last time I edited it simply by not using any tags at all.

    3. Circa

      Circa

      It was updated like 10 seconds before writing this status.

    4. Rooxon

      Rooxon

      oh then I can't help you as I've written that one before that... I'll report next time I do.

  16. Can an fx_runner effect be scaled?

    1. DT85

      DT85

      Don't think so. You'll have to edit the effect and scale it that way.

    2. Circa

      Circa

      I was worried that was the case. Okay, thanks!

  17. All JKHub email is down, so if you tried contacting us in the past week, we didn't get it. We apologize.

    1. Artemis

      Artemis

      Wait, wait... sorry for the nub question, but does that affect PMs?

    2. Circa

      Circa

      Nope. :) Just our individual jkhub.org emails and the contact form.

  18. I could not be more happier of this textured box. My first map. :)http://i.imgur.com/ZRCOK40.png

      Very nice Circa! :) This reminds me of my old Quake 2 mapping days. :D I was actually making a level which was home of Bananas in Pyjamas. LOL! Never finished though. :D

      Needs more Rend2.

      Oh how wonderful! You should totally make the biggest map right now! :D

       

  19. Article regarding the master server is up. Thanks to Caelum and Didz for all they've done. :)http://jkhub.org/page/index.html/_/community-news/master-server-r103

  20. Any mappers interested in making new missions for SP for JK:E?

      I'd love to be a part of this, I've helped out with mapping projects before even by creating just 1 or 2 areas, thus saving time and effort for the actual mapper(s)

       

    3. MagSul

      MagSul

      Does anyone above happen to have a link to a thorough guide for SP mapping?

    4. Circa

      Circa

      All the best tutorials are at http://mapping.jkhub.org but I don't think there are any SP specific ones.

  21. I'm going shader crazy here. Do you need a shader for a PNG with a transparent section in it?

      eezstreet

      PNG stuff is double-compressed when put into a PK3, and as a result the load times are doubled since it needs to decompress it twice. You do not need a shader with either TGA or PNG though.

    3. Circa

      Circa

      I did though. :P Transparency didn't work without a shader.

    4. Boothand

      The alpha channel stuff isn't complicated! Black --opacity--- white. You can set it up with almost two keypresses. Proof:

  22. Expect some little changes here and there around the site. See if you can spot them all. :)

      Why with the formal moderation notices?

    3. Rooxon

      Rooxon

      Well if nothing else, doing things "formal" gives a bit of serious air around things, which helps in cases where people don't take things as serious as they schould. I think. :)

      I do what I want, foo.
