  1. That was actually very well done! I'm also very proud you added in an ending. Also with the credits, just treat them as you would any cutscene camera. I can definitely see you have a willingness to learn and if you'd be interested I'd love to invite you to the Galactic Legacy team. Myself and our other mission makers can train you further to hone your skills. DM me on here if you're interested.
  2. It's my pleasure! I know at first glance this can appear intimidating, but many new things can. Send me a video of any project you make, I'd love to see it!
  3. Quite an interesting month! OPERATION: KNIGHTFALL REMAKE As reported in the previous report, the 3rd gameplay level was said to be done, with only a few minor bugs to take care of. I'm pleased to report that those bugs have been ironed out and I've been able to move on to the next level. The 4th level is by far the largest level in the entire campaign both in terms of length and location. As of writing this, I'd estimate that about half of the level has been ironed out, with one of the worst bugs present being fixed at last! There are a few more things to iron out, but I'm hopeful that after this level is completed, Knightfall will be very close to release (for real this time!). NPC SYSTEM Literally as I was typing this section of the report I decided to finally program the ability to make any NPC speak any audio file you want. This should be a great tool for machinima makers. JEDI KNIGHT ENHANCED FIXES Thanks to the talented people at Jedi Knight: Enhanced, we have been able to implement a number of quality improvements to the mod, primarily for those with Widescreen displays. Cutscenes from the original game (and Jedi Outcast for that matter) will no longer suffer from the black bars in cutscenes cutting off parts of the cutscene shots and should appear as they did in the original game with minimal difference. Furthermore, text areas will appear more appropriate and the HUD will no longer stretch! So again a huge thank you to the Jedi Knight: Enhanced team for inventing these fixes. SOCIAL MEDIA If anyone has followed us on Facebook or Instagram in the past you might notice that we rarely post on either platform, and we've come to the decision to drop both pages. Facebook was moreorless forced on us as we are flagged for "violating the community guidelines" which was utter BS. Despite efforts to appeal this, they refused to listen. This, in addition to our utter inactivty on Instagram, has ultimately made us decide to drop Facebook and Instagram completely, and we'll only be available here on JKHub, Discord, Moddb, and YouTube. CONCLUSION Knightfall is coming along well and we also implemented a few quality fixes which should've been added a long time ago (but better late than never, right?). I'm hopeful that Knightfall should be completed during June, then we'll focus on adding every character we've announced so far, then we'll have ourselves an update! This has not been the easiest updateto work on, with these past several months causing me personally multiple cases of burnout, but I am very excited to keep moving forward with this mod and delivering this remake that's been years in the making. I do want to offer my sincerest apologies to those that have been disappointed with the length of time the Knightfall remake (and Father vs. Son and Deathstar Rescue for that matter) has taken to develop. I hope with the conclusion of this update's development that we will approach announcing new things with more caution instead of forcing you to wait an indeterminate amount of time after we announce something. Regardless, thank you for following the development of Star Wars: Galactic Legacy, and may the Force be with you.
  4. Finally back to making progress reports again! Yay! Don't ever move my friends, it's very stressful. OPERATION: KNIGHTFALL During the course of this month, more work was done on Operation: Knightfall, and the 3rd gameplay level has been completed for the most part, with a few minor bugs to iron out. Despite this, this level should be completed in the near future. MORE CHARACTERS And as before I received a pretty sizable number of characters to bring into the mod. The following is a list of new characters I've been suggested recently which will be coming in the next update. ANCIENT SITH - Ajunta Pall - Darth Andeddu - Lord Dramath GALACTIC REPUBLIC - Sio Bibble SEPARATIST ALLIANCE - Sev'rance Tann REBELLION - Blue Squadron Pilot - Luke Skywalker (Pilot) (Updated Model) - Rodian Pilot NEW REPUBLIC - New Republic Guard GALACTIC EMPIRE - Adalric Cessius Brandl IMPERIAL REMNANT - Praetorian Guard OTHER UPDATES Additional work was done on the code side of the mod as well which should see to the fixing of a few bugs which have plagued the mod (and even the base game for that matter) for a long time. The game should no longer crash when loading a save game containing a vehicle which was spawned from the console It will be possible to progress through the force power selection menu during the Jedi Academy campaign even if all force powers were maxed out via the "setForceAll" command The game will no longer attempt to apply the last skin used when changing characters via the playermodel console command Trip mines will now be granted to the player when they're selected in the weapon selection menu during the Jedi Academy campaign. CONCLUSION It's been good to return to the mod and we're really looking forward to bringing more stuff to you all. There are of course other things that we're working on but I'm not quite comfortable to show them off just yet. Thank you for following the development of Star Wars: Galactic Legacy, and may the Force be with you.
  5. The close-up of Jaden's eye while being confronted by Kyle made me think that maybe they considered giving Jaden yellow eyes in that particular instance, would've been cool to see. Actually some unused code I found did indicate that they planned on having Jaden's saber turn red during those final levels (but obviously that didn't happen).
  6. Hey everyone! So as the title said, there is not going to be a progress report for the month of March. The reason for this is because over the course of this month and February, I have been in the process of moving. There have been other factors which have distracted me from working on this wonderful mod which I'm not comfortable (or permitted) to talk about, but long story short this month has been ridiculous. With the reality of the move setting in, especially now that as of writing this I will be moving at the end of next week, all gears have been shifted to packing up my home and the mod (and even gaming in general) has been an afterthought. After the move is completed, I will be back to work in full swing. To give a quick summary of the progress made this month. The 2nd gameplay level of Operation: Knightfall's remake is completed and both the 1st and 2nd levels are currently undergoing script overhauls which shouldn't take too long. Lwkill has been hard at work at the long-awaited Escape from Theed mission and Basil Bonehead and I had the opportunity to play the level. We had a lot of fun with this first playthrough and think it's a very well designed representation of the level from the Episode 1 game. Again, I'm sorry about the lack of a detailed report for this month and I hope the April one will be more exciting. Also don't forget that our April Fools event will be live for one day on April 1st with a small alteration to Darth Maul's extended ending story with Duel of the Fates! Again I'm sorry for the lack of report, but life happens. Thank you for following the development of Star Wars: Galactic Legacy, and may the Force be with you. TL;DR: Process of moving has made working on the mod difficult and I should be back to normal in April. Knightfall and Escape from Theed are coming along well and both have hit milestones in development.
  7. Thank you! I love writing about them as well!
  8. Thank you! Yeah, Lwkill (our mapper) was very passionate about getting this recreation right. I hope you'll enjoy playing on it!

  10. This month hasn't been the most exciting, but we're still getting closer to our goal! OPERATION: KNIGHTFALL Progress continued on the Operation: Knightfall remake. Recently the 2nd gameplay level of the remake has been released to the team for testing. So far initial testing has shown promise, though there are a number of bugs to be ironed out. However, these bus should be fixed very quickly and we can move on to the 3rd gameplay level very soon. The Operation: Knightfall remake is designed to show off areas of the Jedi Temple never seen before or only hinted at in other novelizations. Though some locations will bring you to familiar areas, other areas of the temple may not be so easily recognizable. MORE CHARACTERS We also spent some time this month gathering up more characters for you to play with, here's a small list of them that should be coming to the mod in the next update. Narkina V Imperial Officer Kino Loy Narkina V Prisoner Grohto Darth Krayt (Updated Model) Naboo Guard (Battlefront) Hanharr 8t88 Vana Sage Skohani Ren Eleena Daru Kaevee Rebel Vanguard Rebel Smuggler As always, we're always looking for new characters, if you have any suggestions, please post the character you'd like to submit along with a link to the character. COMMUNITY QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS I'd like to attempt to interact with the community more often, so this month I'll be taking any questions and will answer every single one in the March progress report. If you have any questions for us (or want to ask something silly), please fill out the below Google form. If we get plenty of questions from the community for next month's report, we'll keep going! LINK: https://forms.gle/PANTQw8MGBuad8wr5 CONCLUSION This month hasn't been the most active one as substantial changes have occurred in my personal life which have prevented me or exhausted me to the point where I couldn't work on the mod as much as I'd like to. The month of March will likely be the same with things hopefully settling down by the end of the month. I will continue my side of development during this time as best as I can, but please understand if the next progress report is lacking in content. Regardless, thank you for following the development of Star Wars: Galactic Legacy, and may the Force be with you.
  11. I know this is a fairly old topic, but I wanted to put this one to rest. I just went inside the code and the game is in fact not programmed to read the force power level in the if statements at this time.
  12. Hope the first month of 2023 has been good to you all! Let's get started! OPERATION: KNIGHTFALL REMAKE Much of the month of January has been focused on ironing out bugs from the initial build of the remade Operation: Knightfall mission. As the original author has been unable to complete this work, I volunteered to finish what he started. As of typing this report, the first of the gameplay levels has been completely ironed out and is at a quality we can deem to be finished. Production on fixing up the next level has begun, with this level appearing to be the most complex to fix. Primarily we are introducing a small puzzle to the level and one boss fight has to be completely reworked. SPOILERS FOR TALES OF THE JEDI BELOW With the recent release of the Tales of the Jedi mini-series, we all learned the ultimate canonical fate for Jedi Master Yaddle (the female of Yoda's species). While Knightfall was in development, Yaddle's fate had not been confirmed, and though she was confirmed to have died between Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones in Legends, we felt that since Yaddle had no canonical fate that we would use her as a boss fight in Operation: Knightfall's remake. With the release of Tales of the Jedi, we are now having to completely remake the boss battle and use an entirely different character. We mentally prepared ourselves for this, so we will make our adjustments. After all we don't want people going END SPOILERS We suspect that the remaining gameplay levels should be relatively easy to clean up and we're looking forward to bringing this mission to you all after years of promise. ESCAPE FROM THEED We've also teased over the past few years another mission which unfortunately has taken us a long time to deliver. Escape from Theed. Inspired by the Episode I video game, players will experience a re-imagining of Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Jar Jar Binks's infiltration in the now-occupied city of Theed. The author, Lwkill, reports that development on this mission is nearing completion. Similar to Operation: Knightfall, Escape From Theed will feature multiple gameplay levels. NEW CHARACTERS We have lined up a massive amount of new and updated characters to bring to the mod in the next update. Below is the current list, please keep in mind that this list is subject to change at any time. The new characters being added will also bring in two brand new factions to Galactic Legacy; Unaligned Force Users and Zann Consortium.

Kueller YUUZHAN VONG - Vong Priestess INFINITIES - Darth Vader (Redeemed) - Inquisitor Starkiller (New variant to Infinities Starkiller) - Leia Organa (Sith Apprentice) - Rebel Friend POSSIBLE QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Q: What are Unaligned Force Users? A: Unaligned Force Users are a faction consisting of beings who use the Force, but primarily only serve themselves or are part of a faction that isn't currently expanded on. Q: Why is Tenebrae listed under Ancient Sith Empire? Tenebrae, Vitiate, and Valkorion are the same person, so why aren't they variants? A: I am currently debating on this, but Valkorion will likely remain. Please let me know your thoughts, I'd love to hear them. Q: The Dread Masters left the Empire, why are they listed under them instead of their own? A: The Dread Master's Empire, the Dread Host, primarily consisted of brainwashed Imperials and Sith of the Reconstituted Sith Empire. It didn't make too much sense to make a separate faction for them. Q: Why is N-K Necrosis a variant of General Grievous rather than his own character? A: He was made from Grievous's body and had no other affiliations. Wookieepedia claims that N-K Necrosis was affiliated with the Empire because of the scientist that created him, but N-K's existence canonically was too short-lived for him to have any meaningful affiliation. Q: Why is Zsinj listed under Galactic Empire? A: Because he was loyal to the Empire prior to making his own. Zsinj's empire would only consist of the Raptor Troopers and himself. Q: Will Ninth Sister behave like the other Inquisitors? A: Yes Q: Why is Niles Ferrier listed under Imperial Remnant? A: He worked with Thrawn in 9 ABY in the Legends continuity and is not listed on Wookieepedia as having any other affiliations (that he was loyal to). Q: WHY TF ARE YOU ADDING ROSE TICO?!!!!! SHE'S THE WORST CHARACTER EVER! A: Because we can Q: Why are some SWTOR companions assigned to the Eternal Alliance but others aren't? A: Some companions in SWTOR only join the Eternal Alliance depending on the character you're playing as. Only companion characters that are guaranteed to join would be assigned if we have their correct appearance. If we got Kira Carsen and Lord Scourge's appearances from the Onslaught expansion in SWTOR, they would be moved to Eternal Alliance. Lana Beniko is being moved from Reconstituted Sith Empire to Eternal Alliance for this reason. Q: Why is Silri listed under Zann Consortium instead of Nightsisters? A: Because she is a hero unit for the Zann Consortium and her only depiction is in Empire at War fighting for them. Q: Rebel Friend is coming? Are we adding LEGO Characters now? A: The Rebel Friend will not be LEGO. The author designed him to appear true to life.
  13. Very well done! I know I went a bit overboard on the details but since this was the first tutorial with actually making a cutscene, I felt the need to be as hand-holding as possible. Everyone learns in different ways, so I tried to accomodate as many as I could. Also I'm very sorry I haven't released a part 3 yet. When I wrote the tutorial, I was in the middle of some major developments for Galactic Legacy, and unfortunately now the workload has increased exponentially. I promise I'll make more tutorials when I can.
  14. Happy new year! I hope you've all had a great holiday season. There's a few things to go over so let's get started! OUR LATEST UPDATE On December 28th, we released an update seeing to an overall improvement to several menus in the mod. To be perfectly honest, this was not an update that should've taken so long, but this was a very painful update that nobody enjoyed working on. However, it was a necessary step to be taken. We understand that this update has no new content, and I do sincerely apologize for that, and I want our next one to be overflowing with content! Currently, we do not have a Mac or Linux build available, due to unforeseen compilation errors. We're currently looking into the cause and hope to have builds available as soon as possible. UPCOMING MAPS Our mapper Lwkill has been hard at work these past few months on some passion projects of his own. We're really looking forward to bringing these to you. The Executor Venator Bridge Deathstar II Hangar Bay THE ROAD AHEAD Since our last few updates have been rather lackbuster in terms of new content, and we've also gone silent on a few previous announcements. So I'm just going to give you a roadmap for our next update. - Operation: Knightfall remake (for real this time!) - Father vs. Son remake - All-new characters! - More????? WHAT IS GOING ON WITH OPERATION: KNIGHTFALL??? For a large portion of Galactic Legacy's time, we've constantly been teasing and showing off screenshots of the long-awaited Operation: Knightfall remake. But we have yet to deliver, we've said we're in "Final testing", we're "close to being done" but over a year later there has been no sign of this mission. What's been going on? The answer is complicated, and to answer it fully would require me to divulge personal information. What I will say however is that our development has been held up due to a number of minor (but important) bugs that we want to iron out. The author has been unable to complete this so I will be taking over for this update, and will not stop until the mission is completed. This update WILL. NOT. RELEASE. without Operation: Knightfall. You all have waited long enough. FATHER VS. SON ROADMAP On the other end of the spectrum, what about Father vs. Son? Progress is being made on the mission, only held up as I focused on fixing up the update we've just released. Now that we can continue work on the mission, everything should be moving forward at some point. Plans for this remake will be expanded beyond making a whole new mission. But the overall structure of the mission will be changed. We will also be introducing our first ever customizable mission, to allow you to experience the mission the way that you want to play it. The special editions of the original trilogy have been met with controversy over the years, and Return of the Jedi's finale has been met with a few changes that have sparked MAJOR controversy. The first change was replacing Sebastian Shaw's Force Ghost during the ending celebration with Hayden Christensen. Though this is a change I personally like, I understand that some prefer the original. The second change was making Darth Vader yell "NO!" right before he throws Emperor Palpatine to his (supposed) death. This was a change I personally do not like at all. So being introduced with this mission will be the opportunity for you all to choose these minor cosmetic things to let you enjoy the mission the way that you want to enjoy it. I'll also be introducing similar customization options in the future provided it's appropriate. I will provide more details on the mission itself as development continues. WHAT IS GOING ON WITH DEATHSTAR RESCUE??? Another mission we've neglected to talk about recently is our Deathstar Rescue mission. We released the 1st cutscene a long time ago, then failed to talk about it. Unfortunately this was a case of me getting distracted by other projects I've promised before. No progress has been made on this since its last mention in a progress report. This project has been put on hold for the foreseeable future as we work to tackle these other projects. The immediate plan as of right now will be to resume work on this mission once this update is completed. CONCLUSION 2022 has been a difficult year overall with the realization of many broken promises and lack of any real meaningful content. But we have a plan in store to make 2023 a great year. We hope to make this year the best year for Galactic Legacy, and we hope that you'll be with us every step of the way. Thank you all for following the development of Star Wars: Galactic Legacy, and may the Force be with you.

  16. Welcome to Part 2 of this tutorial series, my name is Linken and I’ll be your host for today! This is the tutorial for those wanting to use Radiant. I will make an Entity Modding tutorial later on. If you haven’t viewed Part 1 yet, or would like a refresher, I encourage you to view it first before continuing on. Today we’ll be doing a very basic cutscene involving a single NPC. I will write this tutorial in two ways, one way we’ll be using Radiant, and the other way will be done with entity modding. Please feel free to follow along with either or both tutorials. By the end of this tutorial you should know the basics to do your first script, and you should also begin to understand which method of mission making you like best for your own projects. Please keep in mind as we go through this I’ll be doing this tutorial in my own personal preference for completing each step. I highly encourage you as you go through today’s tutorial to think about your own favorite practices so you begin to form a technique that best suits you. PREPARATION WORK Only a few steps you’ll need to complete before beginning this tutorial, regardless of which tutorial you want to follow. Please download this file and extract the contents to your Jedi Academy base folder, this contains today’s map file and already compiled BSP. Those wanting to learn entity modding can discard the map file and keep the BSP file.: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1uZfCp9Gs6OM-c6mpDtL2J2-Q0Zety8lJ/view?usp=sharing Additionally, in your base folder, create a new folder called “scripts”, and inside your “scripts” folder, create another folder called “tutorial_2” Optionally, feel free to download this file and place it inside your base folder, this will display several missing system textures: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1jMBe8No9KO0E7y0LGqjm7L8FNRahMCRt/view?usp=sharing GETTING STARTED Today our map will be nothing more than a simple room. Four walls, ceiling and a floor. Good enough for today’s lesson. In Radiant, open up the provided map file and bask in my super-basic map making! Or….y’know…..just draw your own room and add an info_player_start entity. I promise you my feelings won’t be hurt . Whichever way you want to do it, your radiant camera should be inside this room. Our cutscene today, we’ll have a Jedi NPC walk forward a few steps, turn on his lightsaber, and perform a flourish, and say a sound. Then a reborn NPC will awaken from his meditation, stand up, turn on his lightsaber, say his own sound, and pull out a second lightsaber (GASP! WHAT A TWIST!) So overall today we’ll be diving headfirst into NPCs, performing animations, movement, commands, cameras, and map entities used for missions.I know this sounds like a lot, but trust me, it’ll lay out a great foundation for you to get started on your own projects! TARGET_SCRIPTRUNNER CREATING THE SCRIPTRUNNER Regardless of how many scripts you write, your map will be FILLED with target_scriptrunner entities. These are the entities used to execute icarus scripts. The good news is that their location doesn’t matter at all. Right-click on the map editing section of Radiant and look for “Target”, hover over the option then click on “Target_Scriptrunner” When your scriptrunner entity is created, it should be highlighted by default, if not, select the entity and press your N key to bring up the Entities window. You should see something like this: You’ll see a few checkboxes labeled “runonactivator” and “inactive”, you can ignore these for the tutorial. You can see in the upper section of the window what these checkboxes mean. People using this version of Radiant can see similar information on most other map entities, very helpful stuff! The first thing we want to do is tell this scriptrunner to tell what script to…..well….run. In the “Key” field, type “usescript”, and in the “Value” field, type “tutorial_2/tutorial_start”. After that, press enter. The window should look like this: One more thing we need is a targetname, this tells the game the name of the entity. Targetname has a few other uses for other map entities, but we’ll get to that in the future. To give the entity a targetname, in the “Key” field type “targetname”, and in the “Value” field we’ll call it “start”. Once you press Enter, your window should look a little something like this. Alright, so now we have a scriptrunner, but right now, the game won’t trigger it! So let’s do just that! There are two methods to trigger this script runner entity. I’ll go over both, you just use what you prefer. METHOD #1: INFO_PLAYER_START (PREFERED) Select the info_player_start entity (make sure the scriptrunner entity is not selected (ESC key) and press your N key to bring up the entity window. In the “Key” field, type “target”, and in the “Value” field, type “start”. Once you press enter, the player_start entity will now target the scriptrunner when you spawn in the game. To verify the connection has been made, you should see a line and arrow between the two entities. Alternatively, if you select the info_player_start entity first and then select the target_scriptrunner entity (yes, the order matters), press CTRL + K on your Keyboard and the player_start entity will target the scriptrunner automatically METHOD #2: TRIGGER_ONCE Draw a brush surrounding the info_player_start entity and texture it with the “Trigger” texture (found under System). Should quickly mention that the trigger texture may appear as a red/blue and black checkerbox with “Shader not Found” written inside instead of the green “Trigger” texture. This will not affect your ability to create triggers or do anything else in radiant, however if it annoys you, feel free to download the mapextras pk3 file I’ve included in the “Preparation Work” section of this tutorial. With the brush selected, right-click in the map editor and look for “trigger”, hover over it and then click on “trigger_once”. Once completed, press your N key with the trigger selected to bring up the entity menu. In the “Key” field, type “target”, and in the “Value” field, type “start”. Press Enter and you should see something like this: Then to verify the connection is made, in the map viewing area of Radiant, you should see a green line and arrow connecting the two entities. Alternatively, if you select the trigger brush and the scriptrunner (in that order) and press CTRL + K, the two entities will connect automatically. A BASIC CAMERA Before we make the cutscene, we want to give our script something to do so we know that everything is working properly. We’ll start by creating a basic camera that turns on once you spawn in the game, holds for 2 seconds, and then exits. Now I’m going to be completely honest with you. I absolutely HATE creating cameras like this and I moved past this a long time ago. However, I feel that it’s necessary to share every method I know of to help you on your journey. That being said, after this brief tutorial on creating cameras in Radiant, I will no longer be using this method throughout the rest of this series. Don’t worry, I’ll explain other methods. CREATING THE CAMERA A typical radiant camera consists of two entities, a “Ref_Tag” and an “Info_Null”. The Ref_Tag is where the camera is located on the map, and the Info_Null is where the camera is pointing. To create a ref_tag, right-click in the map editor and select ref_tag. Move the ref_tag to wherever you’d like (I’m placing mine directly above my spawnpoint). After you’re pleased with the location, right-click again on the map, hover over “Info_”, then click on “Info_Null” Move the info_null to wherever you’d like (I’m putting mine directly in front of the ref_tag but moving it a few squares down). Once you’re pleased with your camera’s position, let’s get these two connected! Select the ref_tag and info_null (in that order) and press CTRL + K to link the two together. If you did this correctly, a blue arrow and line should be seen between the two entities, verifying the ref_tag is targeting the info_null. Select the ref_tag entity and press N to bring up the Entity Menu. For the script to be able to use the camera, we need to give the tag a targetname, so let’s do that! In the “Key” field, type “targetname”, and in the “Value” field, type “camera1”. Press Enter to apply your changes. Once you’re done, it should look like this: Now that you have your camera set up, let’s go ahead and compile our map so we can use it in game! On the upper toolbar of Radiant, click on the Build menu and then select the option that’ll only give you the BSP (should be the first option that says Q3Map2). Once your map is done compiling, you should see a confirmation in the console at the bottom of the program. Since this is a very tiny map, compiling should be done by the time very quickly. Much larger/complex maps will take a bit longer. Now that the map is compiled, let’s head over to BehavED and create our script! YOUR FIRST SCRIPT Open up BehavED and look for the Camera Command on the left-side of the window (should have a pink camcorder icon). Double-click the command or drag & drop the command to the main window below the “rem” command already applied (all new scripts will show a comment by default, you can use it or remove it, doesn’t matter). Once you complete this, you should see something that looks like this. By default, when applying a new camera command, the camera will start off with the “Enable” Command by default. Every cutscene will start with a Camera Enable command, so leave this command as it currently is. Double-click on the camera command 3 more times (or alternatively, select the first camera command and press your Spacebar 3 more times) to create 3 more camera commands for a total of 4 commands. Before we start telling what camera to use, let’s go over each camera command (that I know) and what they do. CAMERA COMMANDS ENABLE: Puts the game in “Cutscene Mode”. DISABLE: Takes the game out of cutscene mode and returns to normal gameplay. MOVE: Moves the camera to a particular location (typically a new camera) PAN: Rotates the camera to the specific angle ROLL/TRACK: I never use these and don’t know what they do as of typing this. FOLLOW: Follows an entity automatically and keeps the camera focused on them. FADE: Applies a Fade effect to the game (such as a bright white flash of light or a fade to black), this is a command that can be used during normal gameplay. SHAKE: Shakes the camera at a certain intensity, this is also a command that can be used during normal gameplay. PATH: Applies a ROFF file for the camera effect. Also never used by typical modders. Is used in Jedi Outcast during the opening cutscene of the first Nar Shaddaa level. Now let’s do our camera! Double-click on the 2nd camera command and on the Dropdown menu, click on the “Move” Option. Once the move option is selected, you’ll see a button un-grey itself out called “Re-Evaluate”. It is VERY important that you always click on “Re-evaluate” when the opportunity presents itself, otherwise your script will not work at all. Once you click on Re-evaluate, the window should change to look like this. To apply the camera to the script, there are a few steps. Follow along as best you can as this can get a tad complicated for beginners. Next to the middle dialog box (the one with all the 0s inside) you’ll see a button called “Helper”. Click on that and your window should change to something like this: On the 2nd dropdown menu, which says “Origin”, click on the button next to it that says “Tag”. The 0s should changed into something like this: Where the text says “targetname”, replace “targetname” with the name of your camera, which we named “camera1” earlier. MAKE SURE TO KEEP THE QUOTATION MARKS. Once you’re done, it should look a little like this: Click on OK. Now the game will move the camera to that position. Now let’s get the camera pointing in the right direction. Double-click on the 3rd camera command to bring up the dropdown menu. Expand the menu and select the “PAN” command. Click on Re-evaluate once selected. Your window should look like this: You’ll see three sets of dialog boxes, we’re only going to focus on the 1st one for this tutorial. We’ll never use the 2nd one (I still don’t know what it does as of writing this). The 3rd one we’ll use at a later time. Similar to the MOVE Command, we’ll also be applying a tag to the PAN Command. Follow along as best you can. Click on the “Helper” button next to the 1st dialog box so your window looks like this: Click on the Dropdown menu which says “ORIGIN” and select the “ANGLES” option. After that, click on the “Tag” button. Your menu should look like this: Change the targetname to the name of your camera, which we named “camera1” earlier. Again, make sure to keep the quotation marks, else your script won’t work. It should look like this once you’re done. Click on OK to apply your changes. Now to take the game out of “Cutscene Mode”, double-click on the final Camera command we made earlier and in the dropdown menu, click on the DISABLE command. Again, click on the Re-evaluate command, your window should look like this: Click on OK and let’s review our script! If your script looks like this, you’re on the right track! Now, if we were to load in our map right now, we wouldn’t see our game in camera mode. The reason for this is because we haven’t told the script to wait. When creating a script, a bunch of commands grouped together will be immediately executed with little to no pause in the order that they were written. So technically our game would go to our camera and then exit, but the action would be so fast we would never see it. This is where our trusty “Wait” command comes in! Create a new “Wait” command (make sure to select the one with a stopwatch/clock icon and not the red light one) by double-clicking or dragging and dropping the command into your script. Drag your new wait command in between your Camera Pan command and Camera Disable command. Keep in mind when you drag an existing command through your script, the command will be placed under whatever command is being highlighted. When you’re done, the script should look like this. Double-click on the existing wait command to bring up its options, you’ll see a dialog box inside with the number 1000 inside. Keep in mind when doing wait commands, they are always done in milliseconds. Also keep in mind that 1000 milliseconds = 1 second. Change the value to 3000 (3 seconds), and click OK. Your script should now look like this: COMPILING YOUR FIRST SCRIPT Our script is done, so let’s compile it! Click on the big Compile button near the lower-right corner of the window. If you haven’t saved your script by this point, the program will ask you to pick a location to save your script. Save your script inside the tutorial_2 folder I asked you to create at the beginning of this tutorial, and name your script “tutorial_start” as we referred to it while creating our target_scriptrunner in radiant from earlier. Your script should now be saved and compiled in your tutorial_2 folder! Now the moment of truth! Start up Jedi Academy and in the console type “devmap tutorial_2”, wait for the map to load, and see your camera in action! For 3 seconds, then you’ll be in normal gameplay. Here’s my camera in action: If you followed everything correctly, you should see similar results! Well done! If not, double-check your work and keep trying until you get it right! NPCS Unless you’re planning on having beautiful music involved in your cutscene and having a bunch of cameras tour every nook and cranny of your mission, you’re probably gonna need NPCs. So let’s go ahead and add some NPCs! Here’s gonna be our goal for these npcs starting out. There will be 2 npcs, one Jedi, and one reborn. The Jedi will have its Red Team skin applied and will carry a Green lightsaber (as opposed to its default yellow one) The Jedi will be doing all of the major movement for this scene. The Reborn is a Boss NPC The Reborn will spawn in a meditating position, facing away from the Jedi, with its eyes closed. The Reborn will carry a Red lightsaber and another secret Orange lightsaber. Let’s start with the Jedi! THE JEDI Somewhere in the map, right click on the map editor and create an NPC_Jedi map entity The Jedi NPC will appear as a large red box with an arrow sticking out, the arrow illustrates what direction the Jedi will be facing when he appears ingame. Press your N key to bring up the entity menu for the spawner entity, and follow along with the next few steps closely. Starting off, you’ll see a cluster of checkboxes labelled “trainer, master, and random”. Many special NPC spawners like this feature similar commands, while the generalized NPC_spawner entity won’t feature any of these. Feel free to click on any of them at your leisure, I’ll just be keeping mine as its default appearance. Locate the checkbox labelled “cinematic” and check it. Your window should look like this (notice spawnflags 32 was added automatically). Putting the NPC in cinematic mode will halt its typical behavior indefinitely, and will not actively seek out enemies. Some ingame actions can trigger the NPC to do some actions, but since we’re doing something very basic we don’t need to worry about this. Later down the line I will show you some techniques you can use to prevent any unwanted actions. Next we’re going to give this NPC something called an “NPC_targetname”, an NPC_targetname is what the script is looking for to affect a specific NPC. In the “Key” field, type “NPC_targetname”, and in the “Value” field, type “Jedi1”, press Enter. Your window should now display the NPC_targetname. Now I said earlier that we want our Jedi NPC to have its Red team skin and a green lightsaber. You may be thinking “I can’t see any options! WTF!” That’s perfectly alright, this is where our next part of scripting comes in. We’re going to declare a Spawnscript! A spawnscript is a type of script that is executed for a specific NPC when it's spawned into the game, very simple. There are other types of scripts, but I will save those for another time. In the “Key” field, type “spawnscript”, and in the “Value” field, we’ll call for a new script and we’ll call it “tutorial_2/jedi_spawn”. Press Enter and your window should look like this (you may need to scroll down a little to see it): Finally, we’re going to change the direction our Jedi is facing when he’s spawned, since right now he’s facing the wrong way! In the “Key” field, type “angle”, and in the “value” field, type a number that forces the NPC to look toward the center of the room. For me it’s 270. You can also use the dialog box labelled “angle” if you’re using the same version of Radiant I’m using. Other versions of radiant have a number of angle buttons in a clock-type pattern. Regardless, make sure your NPC is facing the right direction. Once you apply an angle, the NPC spawner arrow should also change to reflect its new location. To create the Jedi’s spawnscript, open up BehavED and start a new script. On the left-side of the program, double-click on the “Set E”Set_Types” command twice to create 2 set commands. Your script should look like this: We’ll first start off with setting the Jedi’s appearance. Double-click on the first “Set” command to bring up its options menu. Then expand the Dropdown menu. Unfortunately this part requires a very careful eye for beginners as this menu is not the best organized and there’s no easier way to search for commands. There are some sections to help with navigation, so just keep these in mind. I will try to be as specific as possible during these next few steps to help you out. Scroll down the dropdown menu using either your arrow keys or (my preferred) your mouse wheel and look for the SET_SKIN command, which is located at the bottom of the “// Scripts and other file paths section” (near the top, just below all of the SET_PARM commands). You can also hold down your left mouse button and move it down for even faster scrolling! PRO-TIP: There can be instances that the dropdown menu will close immediately when expanding it or any other dropdown menu in BehavED. If this occurs, either restart BehavED or hold down your mouse button and use your mouse wheel or arrow keys to navigate each option. (You will not see the SET_MODEL - SET_GENDER options in your copy, these are unused commands meant for Galactic Legacy but aren’t used, so don’t panic!) Once SET_SKIN is selected, click on the Re-evaluate button and your window should look like this: If you’re familiar with modeling or skinning, this file path should be familiar to you. Change the value in there to “models/players/jedi/model_red.skin”. To delete the previous value faster, double-click on the text inside to select everything then press your Delete or Backspace key (unfortunately Ctrl + A doesn’t work). Your window should look like this: Click on OK and verify your script looks like this: Next we’ll set the NPCs lightsaber color. Double-click the 2nd “Set” command, and navigate the dropdown menu to look for the command SET_SABER1_COLOR1. This command will be located near the bottom of the entire dropdown menu in the “// Special Tables” section. (SET_FORCE_STASIS_LEVEL through SET_FORCE_FEAR_LEVEL are Galactic Legacy-only script commands so you will not see them.) Once you have the command selected, click on Re-Evaluate and you’ll see a dropdown menu. This new dropdown will display all saber colors currently featured in Jedi Academy. Expand the dropdown and click on the “Green” color (or really any color, I’m not judging). Once your color is selected, your window should look like this. Click OK and verify your script looks like this: Once everything looks good to you, click on the Compile button and save the script in your tutorial_2 folder and call it jedi_spawn. Verify your script is in the right folder Now let’s test it! Compile your map and open Jedi Academy. If you did everything right, you should see a Jedi in red clothes holding a green lightsaber. If you want to verify the saber color, use console commands to set your team to enemy (playerteam enemy) and bump into the Jedi. He should ignite his green saber. Now let’s do the Reborn! THE REBORN Back to Radiant, right-click on the map editor and select the NPC_Reborn map entity. Similar to the Jedi NPC, press N to open the Entity menu. In the checkbox section, tick the boxes labelled “cinematic” and “boss”. Unlike the Jedi, whose NPC we did not change, we are changing the NPC for the Reborn spawner to spawn the boss npc. Again, this is only a function of the special NPC spawners and is not featured in the generalized NPC_spawner entity. Keep in mind that while the spawnflags value is 40 instead of 32, the game will still recognize that this is a cutscene NPC. How? It’s a code thing. Now that that mystery is solved, let’s go ahead and set the angle he needs to be facing and his spawnscript. In the “Keys” field, type “NPC_targetname”, and in the “Value” field, type “reborn1” Set his angle to face away from the Jedi (so for me it’s 270) Finally, in the “Keys” field, type “spawnscript”, and in the “Value” field, type “tutorial_2/reborn_spawn”. The final product should look like this. Now that our Reborn is set up, let’s go ahead and compile our map once again. Open up BehavED and start a new script. This one will be a little different from the Jedi as we’ll be adding a few extra commands. Once again, just follow along as best you can. In BehavED, create four SET <E”set_types”> commands using your preferred method. Your script should look like this: On the first SET command you created, double-click the command to open up the event editor. On the dropdown menu, you’ll be looking for a command called SET_WEAPON. You can find this command in the // Special Tables section of the dropdown menu, which is near the bottom. Once you click on SET_WEAPON, click on the Re-evaluate button so a new dropdown menu is displayed which will show off a list of every weapon featured in Jedi Academy. Expand the dropdown menu and click on WP_NONE, which will remove the NPC’s current weapon. Why are we doing this? Because I don’t want this reborn to be holding his weapon while meditating. Click OK and verify your script looks like this: Next we’re going to shut the Reborn’s eyes. On the 2nd SET command, double-click it and on the dropdown menu you’ll be looking for the command SET_FACEEYESCLOSED, which you can find in the // Floats section located close to the middle of the dropdown menu. Once again, click on Re-evaluate, and the number 0.00000 will appear. This number will tell the game how long to keep the npc’s eyes shut. As we want the Reborn to keep his eyes closed for an unknown length of time, we’ll just put the value at -1, like so. Click on OK and verify that your script looks like this: The last two SET commands we’ll be using to control the Reborn’s meditation animation. I personally find it best to declare any animations last just to make sure everything else looks good before we continue. On the 3rd SET command, double-click the command and on the dropdown menu look for the command SET_ANIM_BOTH, which you can find in the // Special Tables section close to the bottom of the dropdown menu. Once the command is selected, click on Re-Evaluate, and a new dropdown menu will appear. This dropdown I will be perfectly frank with you, is simply the worst. It’s coarse, rough, irritating, and gets everywhere. Expand the new dropdown menu and look for the animation BOTH_SIT2, which you can find in the “// BOTH_SITTING/CROUCHING section around the middle of the menu. Once you locate the animation, click on OK and verify your script looks like this. Now if we don’t do anything else, the Reborn will perform the animation then return to his default standing animation. We don’t want him standing up yet and want him sitting for as long as we need him to. This is where our fourth SET command comes in! Double-click on the final SET command and in the dropdown menu, look for the command SET_ANIM_HOLDTIME_BOTH, which you can find in the “// ints” section close to the middle of the dropdown menu. Once you find it, once again click on the Re-evaluate button and you’ll see the number “0” in the value box. As we want this Reborn to meditate for as long as we need him to, set this value to -1. Click on OK and verify your script looks like this: Now that this script is completed, let’s go ahead and compile it! Save your script to the tutorial_2 folder located inside your scripts folder and name the script “reborn_spawn”, like how we called it in our map from earlier. Now let’s test! With everything completed, we’ll go ahead and test that both our Jedi and Reborn are where they need to be and doing what they need to be doing. Start up Jedi Academy and load your map, and verify that your Reborn is meditating! Alright, now our NPCs are in place! Let’s make ourselves a cutscene! THE CUTSCENE: JEDI MOVEMENT So the first step we’re going to complete is getting our Jedi to move. We want him to walk a few feet forward and stop at a certain place. So let’s do that! Back in Radiant right-click on the map editor and select waypoint_navgoal. A green rectangular prism will appear on the map, a waypoint_navgoal is essentially a location for the NPC to move to when commanded to do so in the script. Now there are a few things to keep in mind when using navgoals. You want your navgoals to be a decent distance away from an NPC, if the location is too far, one of two things may happen: The NPC will not move to the navgoal at all The NPC (if a Jedi/Sith) will force jump to the navgoal. Neither are things that we want happening, so we’re going to take a few steps to prevent this. First though, the location. Move the navgoal to your desired location (I’m going to place it fairly close to the Reborn). Once you’re pleased with the location, press your N key to bring up the entity menu. In the “Key” field, type “targetname”, and in the “Value” field, type “jedi_move”. Press Enter and verify that your navgoal looks like this: Exit out of the entity menu and right-click once again on the map editor and select “waypoint”. A waypoint helps npcs to create a path from Point A to Point B. This entity is essential for any map you’re intending to use for Single Player as it helps allied npcs to follow you accurately. If you ever experienced problems while playing on a map trying to lead your npc friends and they get stuck constantly, a lack of waypoints is the reason why. Place the waypoint on top of the Jedi’s NPC spawner so the two overlap each other. Once you’re done, create a second waypoint using a method of your choice (Copy and Paste works well) and place it on top of the waypoint_navgoal. Now our Jedi should have no issues going to the navgoal! Select both waypoints you placed and press Ctrl + K to link the two together. This time, the order will not matter. If done correctly, a yellow line and arrow should be seen between the two, connecting them together. Now let’s do some cameras! THE CUTSCENE: CAMERA PLACEMENT At this point in the tutorial, I strongly encourage you to take some creative liberties with your work. We all have our own opinions for the best camera placements for a cutscene. If you disagree with my choices, I completely understand and you can still follow along with this the same way. For our cutscene I’m going to utilize a total of 4 cameras with the following purposes: Camera #1 will be a close-up shot of the Reborn while he’s meditating, the Jedi will walk up from behind. Camera #2 will be a close-up shot of the Jedi after he reaches the navgoal Camera #3 will be a straight shot of the Reborn as he stands up and turns around Camera #4 will be a straight shot of the Jedi as he prepares for battle We’ll return to Camera #3 when the Reborn prepares himself for battle Now this section will take some trial and error, take your time with this and most importantly, have fun! SETTING UP YOUR TEST To help you test your cutscene as quickly and efficiently as possible, let’s edit our first script a bit! In BehavED, open up your “Tutorial_Start” script and select the MOVE, PAN, and wait commands. Copy each command 4 times and edit each camera command to read “camera2”, “camera3”, “camera4”, and “camera3” in that order. Once your edits are made, your script should look like this: This will ensure that once we position our cameras, we can test them quickly. Since we know what cameras we’re using, and in what order, we can perform this step in advance! Back in Radiant, copy and paste the first camera we wrote earlier 3 more times for a total of 4 cameras. Place them where you want for now so you can select them when you need them. As you copy and paste each camera, change each ref_tag’s targetname to read camera2, camera3, and camera4. Some versions of radiant will do this step for you (how convenient!). CAMERA #1 For our close-up shot of the Reborn we’ll use the first camera we created earlier in this tutorial. Take the first camera and position it fairly close to the reborn and lower it to about halfway down the NPC spawner (to account for the Reborn meditating at the start). If you use the same camera we made at the start of this tutorial, you can compile your map and start up your map immediately to check your work. I’m doing a slight angle shot just to add a bit of dimension. Verify that your ref_tag has a targetname of camera1 and is linked with its appropriate Info_null (there should be a blue-ish line and arrow connecting the two). Continue checking and testing your camera placement until you’re satisfied with your camera placement. Ultimately I chose to use this placement: CAMERA #2 For the second camera, I want it to also be an angled shot of the Jedi, but placed where he should walk to once our cutscene gets going. Select camera2 and its info_null, and move both entities close to the navgoal entity. Now what about testing? What can we do to make sure we have the angle and shot we want? You have two options, you can copy/paste the Jedi’s NPC spawner for a reference; placing it where the Jedi would end up. Or move the original spawner to the navgoal’s location. Regardless of which option you pick, continue to adjust the camera until you get the desired camera; compiling and testing until you are satisfied. Ultimately I decided to use this shot: CAMERA #3 For Camera 3, this will be used for a full shot of the Reborn as he stands up and prepares for battle, and is the only camera we will call twice in the script. Grab your Camera3 ref_tag and its info_null entity and position the camera to your desired angle. I will be placing mine to face behind the Reborn, attempting to keep room in the shot to keep the Reborn’s whole body in frame when he stands up. Like the other few cameras, adjust and choose your angles until you’re satisfied with your camera work. Ultimately I went with this shot: CAMERA #4 For our last camera, similar to Camera 3 but facing the Jedi instead. Select your Camera4 ref_tag and its info_null and position the camera to face the Jedi. Choose an angle best suited to your liking and continue testing until you’re satisfied. Ultimately my shot looked like this: Alright! All of our cameras are placed! Now let’s make a cutscene! PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER The stage is set, everything is set up. Now let’s make a cutscene! Move your Jedi back to his original position or delete the extra NPC spawner, depending on your testing method. Compile your map if you haven’t done so already. You can close Radiant now, you won’t need it anymore, unless you want to add more to your cutscene. But I won’t be referring to Radiant anymore for the rest of this tutorial. Back in BehavED, open up your Tutorial_Start script and let’s do this! MOVING THE JEDI Under the first camera command, we’ll begin our process by creating an affect command for our Jedi. This affect command will tell our Jedi to move to the navgoal we placed earlier, and walk (not run) to it. Under the camera1 move and pan commands, create an affect command, and double-click on it to bring up its editor window. In the dialog box that says “DEFAULT”, change the “DEFAULT” value to Jedi1, and click OK. Your script should look like this: Expand the affect command for the Jedi and create two SET<E”set_type”> commands. To help with placement, keep the affect command selected and expanded to make sure both commands are created inside the affect. Your script should look like this (notice the small indent for the two set commands, verifying they’re both in the affect command): Double-click on the first SET command to bring up the editor, and navigate the dropdown menu and look for the command SET_WALKING. This command can be located in the “// Booleans” section of the menu, near the bottom of the dropdown menu. Click on the Re-evaluate button and notice the new dropdown menu which should say “false”, expand this new dropdown menu and select the “true” option. Click OK and verify your script looks like this: Double-click on the 2nd SET command and expand the dropdown menu. Look for the command SET_NAVGOAL, which can be found in the “// Standard Strings” section near the top of the dropdown. Once found, click on Re-evaluate, and in the box that says NULL, type the name of our navgoal from earlier, which is jedi_move. Click OK, and verify your script looks like this: Now our Jedi will move to this location! JEDI TALKING Once the Jedi moves we want him to say something, and we want him to talk after reaching his navgoal with Camera 2 focused on him. Under the camera2 move and pan commands, create a new affect command and have it target Jedi1. Inside the affect command, create a Sound command. Once you’re done, verify the script looks like this: Double-click on the sound command to bring up its editor. You’ll see a dropdown menu with the default value CHAN_AUTO, and another box which says “FILENAME”. We’ll go over the channels and what they mean in another tutorial, so for now expand the dropdown menu and select the value CHAN_VOICE. Click on the Re-evaluate button and paste the following text into the FILENAME box: “sound/chars/jedi1/misc/anger2.mp3”. The editor window should look like this: Once you click OK, verify your script looks like this: Now as it’s currently written, there will be no pause between the camera changing and the Jedi speaking his line of dialogue. So let’s add a little pause! With the affect command selected, double-click the wait command to create one in the Jedi’s affect. I’m going to leave the wait command at a 1 second pause, but feel free to change the pause to your own liking. REBORN ACTIONS Now that the Jedi has spoken, it’s time to make the Reborn react! Under the first set of Camera3 move and pan commands, create a new affect command, and have it target Reborn1, like so: We’re going to have the Reborn perform a few actions: Play an animation to stand up Face the Jedi Pull out his saber Speak an aggressive line of dialogue Let’s get ourselves set up! In preparation, create three SET <E”set_type”> commands and 1 sound command inside the Reborn’s affect. Verify your script looks like this before continuing on: To start, let’s have our reborn stand up! Double-click on the first SET command and on the dropdown menu select the SET_ANIM_BOTH command, located in the “// Special Tables” section near the end of the dropdown menu. Click on Re-evaluate and click on the new dropdown menu to look for the animation BOTH_SIT2TOSTAND5, located in the “// BOTH_SITTING/CROUCHING section near the middle of the menu. Once this is selected, click OK, and verify your script looks like this: Double-click on the 2nd SET command and expand the dropdown menu. Look for the command SET_WEAPON, located in the “// Special Tables” section of the menu close to the bottom. Once selected, click on Re-evaluate and on the new dropdown menu that appears, select WP_SABER Click OK and verify your script looks like this: For our last SET command, double-click it and expand the dropdown menu. Look for the command SET_VIEWTARGET and click on the Re-evaluate button. In the box labelled “NULL”, type the Jedi NPC’s targetname, which earlier we called Jedi1. Click OK and verify your script looks like this: Finally for the sound command, double-click on it to bring up the editor. Expand the dropdown menu inside and select CHAN_VOICE. Click on Re-evaluate, and in the box that says “FILENAME”, paste this text inside: “sound/chars/reborn2/misc/anger1.mp3” The window when you’re done should look like this: Click OK and verify your script looks like this: Now if we were to execute this, the Reborn would perform all 4 actions at the same time. We don’t want that, so let’s add some pauses! Create a few “Wait” commands and place them and edit them as shown in the below screenshot. Make your own personal changes if you would like. Also lengthen the wait prior to the Camera4 move/pan commands to 6000. One last thing before we move on, we need to open the Reborn’s eyes back up! Create a new SET command under the Animation Command and create a SET_FACEEYESOPENED command, located in the “// Floats” section of the menu, close to the top of the menu. Once you select the command and click “Re-evaluate”, type “1” as the value for the command. Your window should look like this: Click OK and verify that your script looks like this: JEDI RESPONSE The Jedi isn’t gonna like that very much, so let’s make him turn on his saber, and let’s also have him perform a fancy flourish to show that he means business! Create an affect command under the camera4 move/pan commands and have it target “Jedi1”. Inside the affect command, create two SET commands. Verify your script looks like this: Double-click on the 1st affect command and look for the command SET_SABERACTIVE, located in the “// Booleans” section of the menu near the bottom. Once the command is selected, click on Re-evaluate so the boolean dropdown menu appears. Select “true” for the option and click OK. Verify your script looks like this before continuing: Double-click on the 2nd SET command and select the SET_ANIM_BOTH command located in the “// Special Tables” section of the dropdown menu near the bottom of the menu. Click on “Re-evaluate” and in the new dropdown menu, look for the animation BOTH_SHOWOFF_STRONG located in the “// BOTH_ACROBATICS” section of the menu near the bottom of the menu. Once it’s located, click OK and verify your script looks like this: The Jedi has now responded and looks confident! What will the Reborn do?! REBORN RESPONSE We’re going to have the Reborn pull out a surprise 2nd saber and perform an animation! That’ll certainly make the Jedi fear for his life, because 2 sabers are better than 1….right? Under the final camera3 command, create an affect command and have it target “Reborn1”, inside the affect, create 4 SET Commands. Verify your script looks like this before continuing: Double-click on the first SET command and locate the command SET_SABER2, located in the “// Standard Strings” section of the menu near the top. After clicking on the SET_SABER2 command, click on the Re-evaluate button. The value box will change to say “none”. Change the value of that box to “reborn” and click OK. Verify your script looks like this. This second saber is unique to this reborn! He wanted an orange saber! So let’s give him one! Double-click on the 2nd SET command and locate the command SET_SABER2_COLOR1 in the “// Special Tables” section of the menu, close to the bottom. Once selected, click the Re-evaluate button and select the “Orange” color (or whatever color you want). Click OK and verify your script looks like this: Now we had two other SET commands, but guess what? Delete them! Because we can reuse prior scripts! Expand the previous “Jedi1” affect and copy the SET_SABERACTIVE and SET_ANIM_BOTH commands to the Reborn’s affect. Verify your script looks like this: Double-click on the SET_ANIM_BOTH command and expand the dropdown menu with the animations. Select the animation BOTH_VICTORY_DUAL, located just below the previously used animation: Click OK and verify your script looks like the following. Create a wait command at the top of the affect for the reborn and leave it at the default 1000 milliseconds to allow for a natural pause. Edit the final wait command prior to the CAMERA DISABLE command to 5000 milliseconds instead of 3000 milliseconds. And with that! Our cutscene is completed! Load up Jedi Academy and watch your very first cutscene! I know that this was a very long tutorial and we went over a lot. If you’re still struggling and you’re very confused on where to go from here, that’s perfectly fine! I will include my full solution as a download for you to review and learn from. But I hope between now and when I release my next tutorial I have given you enough information to start building up your own stories! In Part 3 I’ll go over additional and more efficient methods to set up your cameras, camera movement, and tasks. Until then, keep scripting my friends! Please DM me if you have any questions!

  17. PART 1: SETUP AND COMMANDS Hello all and welcome to my tutorial series on how to script and create your very own levels for Jedi Academy! Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy have had a long history with mods, and ever since I could remember I always browsed the old Filefront site, looking for new SP maps and mods to try out. Remembering old favorites like the Dark Alliance series, Escape Yavin IV, Deception, and others, those mods and many more inspired me to want to learn how to make my own missions. But there was a problem. There were no tutorials! This was a huge turnoff for me, since of course with no tutorials, how could we learn?! This all changed for me back in 2012, when I noticed one day that the author of the Deception mod actually left behind the source files for his mod! Taking an interest, I began studying those files, and through those files I was able to learn how to create my own missions. If the author of that mod ever sees this, thank you so much! With the knowledge I obtained from that mod, I was able to get started. But it wasn’t until 2017 when I made my recreation of The Phantom Menace’s iconic Duel of the Fates that I now create missions regularly. Now years later, I help to create missions for the Galactic Legacy mod. I’m writing this series in hopes to inspire more members of this community to create your own stories. WHAT YOU NEED BehavED: https://jkhub.org/files/file/1137-jedi-academy-sdk/ Notepad++ (Highly Recommended): https://notepad-plus-plus.org/downloads/ Radiant: The one I personally use is https://github.com/Garux/netradiant-custom/releases but you can use any version of Radiant that you want. Please keep in mind using older versions of Radiant may cause some brushes to disappear for whatever reason. Patience A computer An idea (but you can use mine for now) THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND I will be writing these tutorials from both an Entity Modding and Radiant perspective (as separate tutorials). This is strictly for my own personal preference and you can use whatever you want. I’m writing these tutorials strictly for Jedi Academy. However, most (if not all) of what you can learn here should also be possible for Jedi Outcast. I will be using Galactic Legacy for my test environment, but you can use whatever you want. I strongly recommend OpenJK. I am using the CD version of Jedi Academy (old much?) but you can use any version of Jedi Academy you want (I hope you’re not pirating though) This is NOT a mapping tutorial, but I will try my best to explain map entities as I use them during this series. You don’t need to be an expert mapper to perform well (my skill set with making maps is very limited), but I’d strongly recommend having some prior knowledge. I will provide download links for every project we work on together to help you get started. I’ll provide downloads for the required starting files and the “solution”. Don’t get discouraged! It’s very easy to get burned out on these projects. Tackle your work at your own pace and take any and all breaks you need. You are more than welcome to Private Message me here and on Discord. I’ll always respond to you and will answer your questions to the best of my ability (just please don’t be rude) TAKING YOUR FIRST STEPS INTO A LARGER WORLD Now that you’ve hopefully read my super cheesy introduction and downloaded everything I have suggested, let’s get started! I’ll first walk you through how to install the SDK for Jedi Academy Go ahead and download the BehavED file I linked for you. In reality this is just the full SDK for Jedi Academy. Once you’ve downloaded the file and opened it, you’ll notice an EXE file and a txt file. Run the EXE file provided and click on “OK” on the first prompt. On the next window, you’ll see “Unzip to Folder” and a dummy file path. Replace this with the file path to where you want to unzip everything. I personally have it extracted to my Gamedata folder, but you can extract everything to wherever you want. Once you have your unzipping location set, click “Unzip” and let the program do its thing. If you get an error message, try removing the EXE file from the zip file and run it as an administrator. Go to the location where you extracted the files and look for a folder called “Tools”. Open the folder and you should see an EXE file called “BehavED”. Double-click on BehavED (recommend that you run as an administrator) and prepare to be amazed as you look at…….a blank screen…. Don’t worry, this is perfectly expected and perfectly safe. We just have a few things to sort out first. On the right-side of the window, look for a button called “Prefs” and click on it (or just press the P key on your keyboard). On the preferences window, you’ll see a few input dialogs expecting some file paths. If you have a W drive or K drive, you’re more than halfway there. For everyone else, just follow along as best you can. We’re going to be changing 4 of these and the other 2 will be ignored. We’ll start from top to bottom starting with “Script Path”. Script Path will simply be the default location where BehavED will start from when you click on the “Load” and “Save” Buttons. However, BehavED will often remember where you last browsed your files from. I will set the path to my JKA’s base folder, and I’ll create a folder in my base folder called “Scripts”. So for me personally, my path will be “C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy\GameData\base\scripts” Next we’ll move past SourceSafe script path and SourceSafe INI file location and go to “Location of IBIZE.EXE”. This file can be found in your Tools folder where the BehavED exe file is, so just set its path to there. My personal path is “C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy\GameData\Tools\IBIze.exe” Moving right along we’ll go to “Command Description File”. The software is looking for something called “behavED.bhc” which (like IBIze.exe) is in your Tools folder. If you’d like, you can copy and paste your same file path to IBIze and you’re done! My personal path is C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy\GameData\Tools\behavED.bhc” Finally we’ll head over to “Source Files path”, and like the last two, the initial file path will be exactly the same, with the folder it’s looking for being called “SourceForBehavED”. My personal path is “C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy\GameData\Tools\SourceForBehavED”. Once you’ve filled in everything, make sure the checkbox labeled “Use SourceSafe?” is NOT checked, and your preferences section should look a little something like this. Once you’re satisfied with everything, click OK and your BehavED window should change into something like this: Congratulations! BehavED is now up and running and you can make your first mission! However, before we go into our first project, let’s go over some of these commands! This will be a simple overview/description and I won’t go into the major details right now until we get to the appropriate tutorial. You can skip this section if you’d like, but this can give you a good start to play around with these commands as I continue writing these tutorials. Starting from top to bottom: Flush: Clears all script commands on an entity. Useful if you have situations where an NPC may be executing a script and another one is called too soon (as it’ll be ignored) If: A conditional statement where the block of code is executed provided that certain conditions are met. Else: An alternative statement where a different block of code is executed if the previously declared “IF” statement was not met. Loop: Tells the game to perform the same action an “x” amount of times. If set to a negative value, the script will run forever. Affect: Probably the most common command you’ll use, affect a specific entity, NPC, or even the player to have them perform an action. Commands executed in the “Affect” are ignored by the main script outside of the block and can be overwritten unless the script is told to wait. Run: Runs another script. Wait: Halts the execution of the script for an x amount of milliseconds. 1000 milliseconds = 1 second. This is another very common command. WaitSignal: Halts the execution of the script until a “Signal Command” is passed. Signal: Sends out a signal to continue the script if a “WaitSignal” command is present. Sound: Tells the game, character, or entity to play a sound. Move: Tells an entity to move from one location to another, only usable on Map Objects. Rotate: Tells an entity to rotate from one angle to another, only usable on Map Objects. Use: Uses an entity Kill: Kills the NPC or Player Remove: Removes an entity or NPC. Print: Similar to a target_print map entity, prints text on the player’s screen (used during the JKA campaign when the game tells you to kill or spare Rosh) Rem: This is a comment, it does nothing to the script but can be very useful for referring to your scripts in the future if you’re looking to edit them or release your source to the public. Declare: Declares a variable in the map to be used for whatever you need. Free: Removes your declared variable from memory. Set: (E “Set_Types” only), used with the “Affect” Command, sets an attribute for an entity, NPC, or player, or tells an entity, NPC, or player what to do, also a very common command you’ll use. Set: (<str> <str> only) Sets a value of a previously declared variable to whatever you need. Camera: All the camera commands, your number 1 command for cutscenes. Task: An independent block of code used with the “Affect” command to help organize telling what an entity or NPC to do. Do: Used with a “task” command, tells the script to execute the task. However, the script continues to run while the task is being executed. Wait: Tells the script to stop until a previously executed Task is completed. DoWait: A combined use of the previously mentioned “Do” and “Wait” Commands, executes the aforementioned task and halts the rest of the script until the task is completed. Play: Tells the game to play a ROFF file. I know nothing about them, but they’re apparently used during the Outcast and Academy campaigns to simulate certain map objects to use “physics” (like the pipes breaking in the first Artus Mine level or pushing the rock in the T3_Rift mission). And that concludes the basic overview of each BehavED script command and the end of this tutorial. In the next tutorial, we’ll take a look at creating our first script and a very basic cutscene!
  18. Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! You know what we're thankful for? All of you! (Ok that was pretty cheesy) MENU OVERHAULS This update we've really been focusing on overhauling a number of menus present in the mod. As of typing this report, many of the menus we've been planning to overhaul have been completed, with 1 or 2 more menus remaining. Primarily, the biggest changes you'll be seeing are in the Character menu. Through the magic of coding, we have the menu made so both the character and NPC spawner menus use the same files. The hope is that this change will help us to save a ton of memory and prevent the game from utilizing more memory to load in more menu items than necessary. Below are two screenshots illustrating the dual-functionality of the menu. The first screenshot shows the menu in "Character Mode", while the second screenshot shows off the same menu in "NPC Mode". The 5 faction icons you see below will be pertaining to the random Jedi and Sith NPCs we introduced many years ago, placing them in a much more convenient place. Another really cool cosmetic feature is that lightsabers can now be freely selected and applied to any character you select. Whether it's a character with a set lightsaber or someone not assigned one at all, you will now have the freedom to customize the elegant weapon from a more civilized age for any character. NPC FREE CHOICE SYSTEM This update also saw to the addition of some new and improvements to the NPC Free Choice System. To begin, a lot of optimizations to the existing code have been made. Now what does this mean for you? The player? Aside for some background stuff you'll probably never notice, we have fixed one glaring bug with the Free Choice system, which is that now NPCs with pre-set skins can now have their skins changed. The next feature (which is really cool!) is the addition of the first set of a new system of NPC Commands! For a long time, we've been asked by many people to give them the ability to further control NPCs. Now we're giving you that option! With this next update, 5 new NPC Commands will be making their way to the mod! These are: Set Animation Set Team Set Enemy Target Set Weapon Set Saber More will be coming, but I felt personally that these would be the best to start with right now. CONCLUSION We're looking forward to putting this update behind us so we can continue to put together new content. We recently posted a new Community Feedback form on our Discord server, please feel free to fill it out if you'd like to have a voice on which direction this mod should go next. LINK TO FORM: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1BYTO9dlwRRggII19MxE-pVL5-gBLwLdfrX50xmqJUY0/edit#responses Thank you for following the development of Star Wars: Galactic Legacy, and may the Force be with you.
  19. Hope you all had a great October! Let's get started! MENU OVERHAUL This month, all efforts were focused on the Character and NPC menus, and aside from some bugs needing fixing, the menus are very close to completion! Taking inspiration from the Galaxy of Heroes mobile game, we were able to code the menu to better display the character, and for Jedi and Sith alike, coded them to hold their respective sabers. Another cool thing is that now the Character and NPC menu will now share the same menu! Thus saving space! Additionally, thanks to the wonderful people at JK:Enhanced, we have also implemented the ability to manually spin around your respective character from any horizontal angle! We also coded a new feeder system so we no longer have to take up precious Menu memory space on manually inserting every single character skin, and they'll now be automatically added. Anyone wishing to modify the menu for themselves will also receive this benefit! Furthermore, we streamlined the UI and code a bit more to make accessing customization options and using them much more user friendly and engine friendly. Maybe prior CVARs coded for the NPC Free Choice System back at the mod's launch back in 2020 have seen to a major redesign. Though you, the player, may not notice anything, those of you in our community that have peeked at our source code may notice a few changes! Finally, we're introducing Lightsaber customization to the character menu! A heavily requested feature, taken from the NPC Free Choice System, you will now be able to modify your character's lightsaber to your liking, with a live display of the elegant weapon being held by your favorite character! Please note that these screenshots are from a current dev build so many things are in the works to be changed. FACTION OVERHAULS Another element we're introducing to the Character and NPC menu is better Faction Organization. Many characters were introduced to certain factions and could make it fairly difficult to find your a character you were looking for. To better organize everything (and to allow for the potential for new factions in the future!), the faction selection section of the menu has been expanded to include many other factions in the Star Wars universe! New Factions being recognized are the following: Darth Revan's Sith Empire Brotherhood of the Sith Ancient Sith Empire Rule of Two Sith New Republic Galactic Alliance Imperial Remnant Fel's Empire Darth Krayt's Empire Sith Eternal Hutt Cartel Black Sun Crimson Dawn/Shadow Collective Independent Criminals (Renamed from Criminals) Yuuzhan Vong Death Watch Clan Skirata Mandalorian Neo-Crusaders Nightsisters Revanites Eternal Alliance Eternal Empire Jedi Order Sith Order Creatures I understand that this may lead to some concern regarding the potential of even more files to download, and that installation will be an even bigger hassle with more files to keep track of. We have thought about this and have taken steps to make this impact as small as possible, deciding to treat the main pk3s as an overall generalization for characters. The following is a list of changes that will be made: Two new Faction pk3s will be introduced, JEDI_SITH; for Jedi and Sith Order characters (including the custom Jedi and Sith), and OTHER (for all other factions). The FORCE_USERS faction will be removed, and publicly released as an empty pk3 file. All factions previously in Furthermore, there are other changes that will be made regarding character re-assignments. Though some changes may be obvious, I will also list some characters that will be given new factions in the next update: Darth Maul's Sith variation has been moved from Separatist Alliance to Rule of Two Sith Maul's criminal/Rebels variations have been moved from Separatist Alliance to Crimson Dawn Savage Opress has been moved from Separatist Alliance to Crimson Dawn/Shadow Collective Talon Karrde has been moved from Criminals to New Republic (currently not pictured in the below screenshots) Ren has been moved from First Order to Crimson Dawn Gault Rennow, HK-55, and Nico Okarr have been moved from Criminals/Civilians to Eternal Alliance And more! (Full list coming later) Here are some screenshots! Again, please note that these screenshots are from a current dev build so many things are in the works to be changed (such as "Choose your Side" likely being removed) CONCLUSION It's been a busy month, and the work isn't quite finished yet, but we are close! We're still looking at other possible features we would like to include (controller support????), but for now we're making some steady progress. After this is completed, production on the Father vs. Son remake will continue (FOR REAL THIS TIME!). THank you for following the development of Star Wars: Galactic Legacy, and may the Force be with you.
  20. An interesting month, to say the least. FATHER VS. SON REMAKE This month at last saw to the beginning of production for the long-awaited Father vs. Son remake. So far, progress has been relatively smooth, with a number of improvements made to allow for a much more authentic experience. With the help of our mapper Lwkill, sound editor Commander Langz, and of course the Movie Battles II team, we have successfully begun the process of remaking the mission with a much higher standard of quality never before seen in any of our other missions. For starters, thanks to the Movie Battles II team, we have been able to remake the mission on their map depicting the Emperor's Throne Room from Return of the Jedi. We are very grateful that they are allowing us to use their map for this mission and we cannot thank them enough. Furthermore, our sound editor Commander LangZ has taken the time to use a 3rd party site to remove all background audio from the audio clips. This practice will be used in future missions (and re-iterating our previous ones) to get as clear a sound as possible without needing to rely on film rips with (possibly) overlapping music tracks or more in the background. Another user has already provided us with the audio used in all of our current missions, and we will be applying them soon. You can view our first set of changes here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H-wOk09T_-c&ab_channel=StarWars:GalacticLegacy Overall progress has reached the walkway cutscene (where Vader throws his lightsaber), and we suspect the rest of the mission shouldn't take too long to complete. FATHER VS. SON EXTENDED ENDINGS Introduced with Duel of the Fates back in our initial release in December 2020, we do have extended endings planned for all possible endings for Father vs. Son. However, this has forced us to make an important decision. The original mission featured 7 possible endings, with 2 possible for Luke, 2 for Vader, and 3 for Palpatine. However, after much time contemplating, in order to reach the best quality we can, the number of possible endings will be reduced to 4 from the original 7, with an official Palpatine POV being scrapped (and instead being unlocked through one of Vader's endings). We did this as we felt many of the intended endings would feel too similar to each other, and we wanted the freedom to tell a unique story for each character. MENU OVERHAULS Unfortunately this was not a month without some degree of drama. After a lengthy discussion with the Knights of the Force 2.1 leadership, we have been asked to fully redesign a number of our menus, including (but not limited to): - Character Selection - NPC spawner - Mission Selection As of writing this article, Knights of the Force 2.1 has been re-uploaded to Moddb and Nexus Mods featuring all content developed by the Galactic Legacy team up until the split (which we didn't consent to). As Fire Phoenix has insisted on believing that our menus are direct copycats of his, we have been forced to take action. Phoenix (as of writing this) has agreed to remove all of our content from KotF 2.1 provided we remake the aforementioned menus (and probably some others) from scratch, which we always intended to do so, but hoped to postpone. Regardless, we have already begun the process of remaking the Character selection menu, with the menu featuring a specific character already nearing completion. Below is a current WIP screenshot of the new menu, we will show more as we continue to develop. As these changes are currently conditional of us completing our next update, we will not be able to continue work on anything else until the menus are remade (which is a good thing because we're currently awaiting new content for the Father vs. Son remake which will take its own time). NEW CHARACTERS We're currently also going over some new characters for the mod (as we so often like to do). Below is a small list of some of the characters we should be introducing soon: - Cato Parasitti - Cydon Prax - Dash Rendar - Darth Chratis - Resistance Trooper - Githany - Luke Skywalker (Heir to the Empire) We will of course list more as new characters are added. CONCLUSION These menu overhauls are something we've been wanting to do for a very long time and we can't wait to show off more, this along with the Father vs. Son remake, and the next update should hopefully be a very exciting one. We have a few other things on the backburner right now which I'm not comfortable to reveal at the moment, but as always you can reach us here and our Discord server and we'll be more than happy to answer your questions. Thank you for following the development of Star Wars: Galactic Legacy, and may the Force be with you.

  23. Only thing I've ever modeled is lightsabers and for that I use Gmax
  24. This is going to be a pretty short report. RELEASE DATE Previously announced on our Discord server, our update has finally been completed and sent to the team for final testing. Assuming that no horrible bugs are discovered, our next update will release on Friday, September 2nd at 12pm EST! We will of course keep you posted if this changes. THE ROAD AHEAD We have a lot of exciting things coming to the mod for the future. After discussing with my fellow leads, we have agreed to allow for the long-awaited Operation: Knightfall remake to be its own update once it is completed. The authors Darth Voiid and Lwkill have been hard at work adding on more and more layers of polish to allow for the best experience possible. With the release of this update, the Father vs. Son remake will at last be in production (after announcing it non-stop), and I hope to have some development screenshots for you all in the next progress report. Furthermore, we will also be working on a brand new system called the Dynamic Weapon System, worked on by our amazing coder The New Order. With this system, we will be able to bring new weapons into the mod without requiring any additional weapon slots to be taken in the code. This was done in order to address weapons that feature very similar functionalities to each other. We are really looking forward to showing this to you and hope to have more information soon. Thank you for following the development of Star Wars: Galactic Legacy, and may the Force be with you.
  25. I wrote this tutorial many years ago regarding this subject. Maybe it can help you.
