  1. I think I'm addicted to ramen noodles...

      It depends on what you like. My dad makes it all the time. Authentic Japanese ramen is pretty much a completely different food than Americanized ramen.

      I like the Shin big Bowl spicy noodles personally

      On my last trip to Japan I ate ramen every day! It was fantastic!

      I agree with Mini on the choices. Oriental is my go to for mixing things in: eggs, meat, etc.

      Chili and Spicy Chicken if I want it plain.

  2. I understand that people have a lot of WIPs, but can you go back to making separate threads for them?

      Does that follow option actually work? I tried it for my Skipray thread, but didn't seem to have any actual effect.

      I use it for all my threads. Tells you when someone replies. Works for me. Maybe check your notification settings on your account?

      Ah, that was it. Didn't even know that section existed. Thanks for the help.

  3. I wish I could make my own SP storyline mods.

      You need entity modding for that, which involves working with already compiled map, just start on your own map and learn from there. There are some great tutorials here on JKHub, check out MUG's series.

      Yeah, and one of these day's I'll write a good SP scripting tut for you. While it is not very difficult, some aspects can get a little bit tricky. But, dude, modding SP is so awesome. You can bring your story to life with SP.

      @therfiles I really want to. My forte when I modded was mainly just mini mods and animation stuff, all for SP. But I always wanted to make a story mod.

       

      Mapping is where I don't want to step into. I attempted that as well and I just didn't understand it at all.

  4. I'd just like to point out that we as staff don't "support" immaturity or offensive remarks, but we can't be censor nazis with every little comment that offends someone. This isn't a forum for children and we can't cater to every single person's distaste of critique or offense.

  5. I'd still love to see a new Clone trooper model happen sometime.

      ah damn - I forgot about this I had started workinmg at a base mesh for some clones a while ago... will pick it up again once I got more time to work at JKA related stuff

      If AshuraDX makes it, it's gonna be awesome for sure!

  6. I'm assuming the DEMP2 electricity effects are coded and can't be changed?

    2. eezstreet

      eezstreet

      Well, I mean they can be changed, but you need to code the changes.

    3. Circa

      Circa

      Gotcha. I figured. Thanks.

  7. I'm finally getting these old mods I've had under my belt for years finished and released.

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

    1. Show previous comments  6 more
    2. eezstreet

      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:

  9. I'm not sure if I should spread out my mod uploads. I have 2 or 3 more ready to upload but I don't want to overthrow the recent uploads anymore.

      is it more luke stuff?

    3. Circa

      No. Haha. Although there might be another Luke skin in the future if I ever get to it.

  10. I'm starting to think we should approve all new accounts for awhile...

      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.

    3. Circa

      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

      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.

  16. 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

      Seems to be working fine now.

  17. 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

  18. Is there a code mod that removes the NPC limit yet for SP? I haven't kept up with any of the coding stuff.

      Are you saying that if I split up every NPC in it's own file, it won't crash?

    3. eezstreet

      eezstreet

      No. I'm saying that it doesn't matter how much you split up the files/how many NPCs you add, it's the combined characters of all the files that goes towards the limit.

      You can eliminate some very basic fields from the files in order to cut this limit. For instance, "aggression", "intelligence", "evasion" etc all have a default value of 3, so if you see any "evasion 3", you can delete that. That might help you squeeze a few extra NPCs out.

      Ah okay. Thanks for the tip.

  19. Is there anyone interested in writing articles for JK related topics? Comment if so.

      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.

      Do some clan/community spot lights o.o

  21. Just got Bioshock for $5. I've never played any of them before. They also have Bioshock 2 for $5, but I don't know if I will like the first enough to get the second. Should I go for it?

      I see. I may have to get that as well then.

      Bioshock 1 turned me off the rest. Just totally lame.

    4. Ping

      Stick to Bio1, it's a classic; Bio2 isn't so good in comparison, but infinite is definitely worth a play.

  22. Just ordered an Xbox One because I'm depressed, and why not.

      lol why did this turn into an emulation discussion. Silly Onysfx. :P

    3. Onysfx

      Onysfx

      xD emulation is quite important :). One day, the only way to play old games, or even games considered "new" today, will be through emulation.

    4. katanamaru

      katanamaru

      Agreed with supporting emulation! Keeps the PC master race, master race.

      It's really more like a dream come true though. As a kid dreaming that one day they might actually put a NES, SNES, and Genesis all together.

  23. Just played the GBA game Star Wars A New Droid Army. Brought back memories! That game would be awesome as a JA mod.
