  1. UltimateWeapons for JK2

    Author: Kahn D'halaine
     
    This is the JK2 version. If you're looking for the JKA version, click here.
    There are so many changes in this, so I wonʼt remember to mention them all. I can conclude this mod by the words "movie authency" and "enhancement".
     
    Let me quote the intro of the trailer, that Nozy found so descriptive:
     
    "This mod was intended to recreate the look, sound and the very FEELING of Star Wars - something I felt missing in JKA. To accomplish this I put together the best of all weapons mods I found along with my own work, to make a perfect weapons mod. This is: ULTIMATE WEAPONS."
     
    That says pretty much it what this is. The weapons have been altered to resemble the movies (those that are in the movies) or just enhanced, such as the explosions.
     
    Letʼs go for the general:
     
    IMPACT EFFECTS: New impact effects based on the MBII effects, a.k.a. TK-231ʼs Special Effects Mod V1 Base, by TK-231. They are much more movie-like (like everything else, so I
    wonʼt mention that anymore), with lots of sparks, smoke, chunks, lightflashes and all you could ask for. The effect is random, with different sizes, sounds (there are 80 different impact sounds!) and burnmarks (these are brand new!).
     
    EXPLOSIONS: Much bigger explosions with lots of smoke, fire and that stuff accompanied to great sounds! MODELS: Most models have been enhanced by a chrome shader to make them shiny, and a hand shown on the 1st person models (cred to PerfectJamie @ Massassi). Some are brand new (the DFMod models).
     
    ICONS & TEXT: All weapon icons have been remade to show the improved weapons. The text strings have also been altered for some of the weapons - instead of just saying E-11 Blaster Rifle and Thermal Detonator they now say BlasTech E-11 Blaster Rifle and Baradium- core Thermal Detonator.
     
    SOUNDS: Of course the sounds are according to the movies. Hereʼre some extended descriptions:
    LIGHTSABER: The lightsaber blades are my own Ep3-style blades, with the pointed tip. Uses the much more realistic clash effect from OJP and MBII. The sounds are the grinding ones from the classical trilogy, with very good impact sounds and activation/deactivation sounds. The regular saberon is Lukeʼs saber from ROTJ, the saberoff... I canʼt really think of that I heard something different in the first movies. That sound is actually the only thing that has survived from the first version (unreleased) of this mod. The enemy saberon and -off is from Dookuʼs saber, in AOTC and ROTS. The new icon is Obi-Wanʼs saber from ROTS. I also added chrome shaders to the BaseJKA sabers, to update them slightly (I still think theyʼre boring though).
    MELEE: New, improved sounds.
    THE FORCE: Movie-like push/pull and grip sounds (oh, I just got a Dejá Vú), the well-known "Force Rumble". This is best heard using a subwoofer (itʼs shaky!). The effects of these are invisible. The lighting sound is the same as when Dooku blasts Anakin and Yoda in AOTC, with an improved effect; much blueer, electrical-like with lightbeams coming from the userʼs palm. Force Speed sound like if you go into a different form of existance or something like that, that the time is being slowed down. You who have played JK2 will most probably recognize the Sense and Rage sounds as the ambient sounds in the Valley of the Jedi.
    BLASTECH DL-44 HEAVY BLASTER PISTOL: New scope texture, sounds like Han Soloʼs pistol in ANH and ESB.
    BLASTECH E-11 BLASTER RIFLE: Much better models with darker textures, shinier shader, and the sounds... Theyʼre like a dream, from the blasting in ANH.
    TENLOSS DXR-6 DISRUPTOR RIFLE: Looks like itʼs a brand new weapon - shiny! Really nice sounds, effects and a new scope, based on the A280 scope in MBII. The disintegration effect is now a lot of fire and smoke that leaves a pile of ashes for some seconds...
    WOOKIE BOWCASTER: Polished by a furry hand, sounds like Chewieʼs firing in ESB and ROTJ. Red bolts as default, but green is optional.
    IMPERIAL HEAVY REPEATER: Sounds like the repeater in Dark Forces, with its blue bolts. DEMP2: Probably the most polished gun of them all... Much more electrical effects, and there comes smoke from the muzzle when firing, inspired from the Jawa ion gun in ANH.
    GOLAN ARMS FC1 FLECHETTE WEAPON: Now fires red-hot metal shards, as the description says! The shards stay buried in the wall for some time. Sounds much more shotgun-like. The alt-fire is shield-protected frag-grenades that spread lots of shrapnel when they go. I also added a "grenade goes into position" sound after each fired grenade.
    STOUKER CONCUSSION RIFLE: I havenʼt done anything to the models or firing sounds of this, but the effect... I was inspired from the Trandoshan Concussion Rifle in Republic Commando, and tried to replicate the effect. Itʼs primary an imploding sphere that sends out a shock when imploded. Actually I made the effect even before I got Republic Commando; I had found the explosion sound effect for the weapon on FileFront and decided use it in my mod. At first it was a replacement for the Flechette alt-explosion and had an imploding blue shell that sent out a horisontal shockwave and golden sparks. But finally it made itʼs way to the Stouker instead.
    MERR-SONN PLX-2M PORTABLE MISSILE SYSTEM: Oh my, in OJP Enhanced these are feared, as they blow you apart like nothing! The explosion is much bigger, the sounds are great with a "place new missile in position" sound after each firing. The smoketrail is made much longer, with a matching powerful loop sound. I also reskinned the missiles to dark grey.
    BARADIUM-CORE THERMAL DETONATOR: Now this looks like it should do, a big expanding glowing sphere of doom... New models, sounds, you name it! Sounds exactly like the thermal Boushh (a.k.a. Leia) holds up in Jabbaʼs palace in ROTJ.
    TRIP MINES: Red laser beams... Big explosion if you touchʼem... Really nice sounds...
    DETONATION PACKS: New sounds and a big explosion with a lot of smoke...
    ITEMS: New item respawn sound (dunno how to describe it), bacta sound like some sort of hydrualic injection and a new chat sound like a short comradio static. Oh, and the spawn effects! Big beam(s) that leaves a little mark on the ground where you spawned. The portable sentry now fires green bolts and sound like a big ship cannon (the Lady Luck cannon, the cannons aboard the Dreadnaught).
    MISC SOUND CHANGES: New sounds for weapon switching, low ammo warning, Rebel ship hyperdrive and hologram sounds (I think this only appears in JK2).

    GAME FUNCION CHANGES: Iʼve edited the weapons.dat script to make some weapons fire a little faster and increased the ammo limit, only for SP though. But it works in CoOp in OJP! Thatʼs it for the main mod, UltimateWeapons.pk3. Now for the additional PK3s!
     
    ******************
    Optional Files
    ******************
    There are some additional files that alter the weapons in some ways:
     
    BRYAR PISTOL REPLACEMENT - xyz_bryar_pistol.pk3:
    Replaces the DL-44 with Kyle Katarn's modified Bryar pistol from Dark Forces, with appropiate sound from Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2.
     
    BLASTECH DC-15A RIFLE REPLACEMENT - xyz_dc-15A_pah.pk3:
    Replaces the repeater with the DC-15A clone trooper rifle by Pahricida for MBII. New sounds and effects by me.
     
    GREEN BOWCASTER BOLTS - xyz_green_bowcaster.pk3:
    Makes the bowcaster effects green, with different sounds.
     
    LOW QUALITY EFFECTS - zzz_UltimateWeapons_LQEffects.pk3:
    If you find the effects laggy due to all the sparks, try setting fx_expensivePhysics to 0 or place this file in Base. It lowers the number/removes the sparks and makes the smoke fade faster.
     
    NO BLOOD - zzz_UltimateWeapons_NoBlood.pk3:
    If you don't think blood fit into Star Wars or just don't like blood, this is the file for you! Removes the blood splats from the effects, but leaves a slight red smoke, because in Ep1 when Obi cuts Maul in half, there's coming reddish smoke from the cut. Did Obi hax the system even in his young days, or what do you think?
     
    *******************
    Known Bugs
    *******************
    Sometimes the effects disappear when many are active, due to the game's sprite limitation. Use zzz_UltimateWeapons_LQEffects.pk3 to solve this.
     
    The chrome shaders may not work properly in MP, at least they don't for me. I have no solution to this.
     
    Note that other mods may interfere with my mod. PK3's are loaded in this hierarchy:
    Mod directory/PK3's
    Mod directory/files in folders
    Base/PK3's
    PK3's are loaded alphabetically, and therefore you can't name a mod something like "aaa_mymod.pk3" as would be overridden by the
     
    base JKA assets.

  2. bloodPLUS Gore/Dismemberment Mod v1.5 & v3.1

    Author: bloodthirstydood
     
    This mod attempts to provide a more immersive hack-slash experience than the default sparks and sparkles that get chucked out when you stab someone normally (or shoot - this mod works with guns as well, with the exception of the Stouker). I was obsessed with the game BloodRayne at the time of authoring this so it may bear some resemblance. This mod comes in two versions - 1.5 and 3.1.
     
    1.5 - lots of big, wide sprites (I think that's what they're called) all over the place; emphasis on volume and area coverage. Extreme dismemberment and small red puff-clouds on gun and saber impacts. Saber impact and particle splatting sounds may be a little loud, but I like the explosive water-baloon-popping sort of aura they help create.
     
    3.1 - a move toward smaller textures that spurt more often. More diversity within the sprites themselves and a trend toward more splatter but less red (less ground coverage). Same amount of dismemberment. Added tails (for us nerds who know what those are) to go jetting out on saber hits and paste small bits of gore wherever they land. The downside is that with so many more images getting drawn everywhere, the game erases old sprites in order to let the new ones land, so sometimes it looks like the blood's evaporating wicked fast as new blood lands on the ground. For this reason, 3.1 may be more suited to single player, when there tends to be more time between killings. The sounds in 3.1 are a bit less splooshy and more splattery.
     
    This mod also declares "helpusobi 1" to facilitate singleplayer cheating.

    Credits:
    Model/Skin/String files - =Someone=
    Effects/Sound - zag

    Notes:
    This is the third version of my snowball mod, the first of which was made for jk2 and bundled with my first released map.

  5. OpenJK

    NOTE: This page links to an external source that was approved by our staff.
    OpenJK is an effort by the JACoders group to maintain and improve the game engines on which the Jedi Academy (JA) and Jedi Outcast (JO) games run on, while maintaining full backwards compatibility with the existing games. This project does not attempt to rebalance or otherwise modify core gameplay.
    Our aims are to:
    Improve the stability of the engine by fixing bugs and improving performance. Provide a clean base from which new JO and JA code modifications can be made. Make available this engine to more operating systems. To date, we have ports on Linux and macOS. Currently, the most stable portion of this project is the Jedi Academy multiplayer code, with the single player code in a reasonable state.
    Rough support for Jedi Outcast single player is also available, however this should be considered heavily work in progress. This is not currently actively worked on or tested. OpenJK does not have Jedi Outcast multiplayer support.
    Please use discretion when making issue requests on GitHub. The JKHub sub-forum is a better place for support queries, discussions, and feature requests.

  6. Spanki's Jedi Customization

    Author: Spanki
     
    This is a Jedi Costumization based on the HS_Anakin model of Hapslash.
    You can choose between 49 heads ( ok, there are really 49 different heads but
    in some cases I just changed hair and skin color and some little detail like a beard )
    most of them with 3 or 4 different hairstyles and hooded versions,
    21 different torsos in unrobed, robed, hooded and alternate robed and hooded versions.
    Besides you can choose between 21 different pair of boots.
     
    Some face textures are more unique then others, but all detailed.
    For example on the one hand you can choose compatible face textures of hm_jedi, chiss , jeditrainer from the original JKA game
    and on the other hand there are many unique face textures I made for this costumization based on some RPG chars I created for friends
    but never released before.
    Never the less there are textures like the beautiful hs_dooku face that I made compatible to hs_anakin, or a new Mace Windu-like face
    I created. There are also two very unique textures I created. One for a Victor van Doom skin I am working on.
    And the other for a RPG char named Goldmember - yeah. . . its the golden one -
     
    Its the same with the torsos, some are very unique and some are well known textures like the hs_rots_kenobi or the hs_anakin torso.
    Many of the torsos are done by other authors, I just made them compatible to this model and added armors in some cases.
     
    again the facts :
     
    - 49 heads with different hairstyles
    - 192 icons for the head selection
    - 21 different pair of boots
    - 21 different torsos ; unrobed, 2x robed , 2x hooded versions
    - 96 icons for the torso selection
    - all seperated in 18 species
     
    - 129024 possibilities to create your jedi
     
     
    SP compatible
     
    There are 18 random default skins - one of each species - that are selectable at the MP icon screen.
     
    each of this 18 default skins are BOT and NPC supported :
     
     
    BOT list : NPC list :
     
    Random Jedi I model/jedi_spanki
    Random Jedi II model/jedi_spanki1a
    Random Jedi III model/jedi_spanki1b
    Random Jedi IV model/jedi_spanki2
    Random Jedi V model/jedi_spanki2a
    Random Jedi VI model/jedi_spanki2b
    Random Jedi VII model/jedi_spanki3
    Random Jedi VIII model/jedi_spanki3a
    Random Jedi IX model/jedi_spanki3b
    Random Jedi X model/jedi_spanki4
    Random Jedi XI model/jedi_spanki4a
    Random Jedi XII model/jedi_spanki4b
    Random Jedi XIII model/jedi_spanki5
    Random Jedi XIV model/jedi_spanki5a
    Random Jedi XV model/jedi_spanki5b
    Random Jedi XVI model/jedi_spanki6
    Random Jedi XVII model/jedi_spanki6a
    Random Jedi XVIII model/jedi_spanki6b
     
     
     
    Regarding to the MP icons and Shaders :
     
    OK, this is just a little hint. Some of my beta testers didnt like the icons - and the shaders - of the MP screen
    (maybe cause they didnt have the 18 icons in three lines, so the effect is not working well)
    In this case just delete the file out of the original pk3.
     
    There are three shader files "shaders/jedi_spanki" -> for the torso,boots ... etc.
    "shaders/head_shader" -> for - you can guess - heads
    and "shaders/icon_shader" -> for the MP icons
     
    If you dont like the MP screen icons, delete -> icon_shader -> and save the pk3 new ( the icons will still be there but without the effect )
    If you dont like the head cloaks, delete -> head_shader -> and save the pk3 new

  8. Toshi's Anakin & Darth Vader

    Author: Toshi
    This is my version of Anakin Skywalker from Episode 3: ROTS. It all started as a head mesh I made for a different character, which looked a lot like the whiny Jedi. I know, there are a lot of Anakin models floating around. I just wanted to make one for myself. To spice it up a bit I decided to toss an Anakin as Vader model into the pack. Turned out quite well.
    Known bugs:
    -Slight clipping in certain animations, unavoidable thanks to the JKA skeleton.
    -Arm caps show no texture on Anakin robed variants (messed up skin file?).
    -Animated control surfaces on vader appear black with only the glow showing in the character selection menu. Works properly in game.
     NPC names:
    t_anakin t_anakin-hoodup t_anakin-hooddn t_anakin-sith t_anakin-shoodup t_anakin-shooddn t_anakin-sithburned   t_vader t_vader-mask t_vader-reveal Get the lightsabers in this mod.
    Original WIP thread on Hapslash's Void

    Special thanks:
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -Thanks to DT and o0paradox0o for their feedback.
    -Thanks to Buffy for her help with testing and gorgeous screenshots.
    -Thanks to all the people that helped me by testing the models.
    -Thanks to all the people at the invision games (the new era mod) forums.

  10. The Dark Alliance II: Vengeance of the Sith

    Author: Steven Brown (Blaster)
    Date Of Release: August 2004
    Description:
    This is the sequel to my singleplayer map 'The Dark Alliance'. If you have not yet played 'The Dark Alliance' then I suggest you download and play it before you play this one. Also you may want to play 'The Mainframe 2.0' before you  play 'The Dark Alliance' to have the ultimate experience. 
    You can get them from the following websites:
    The Mainframe
    The Dark Alliance
    I hope you enjoy the final part of the Dark Alliance Trilogy just as much as I did making it. - Blaster
    Story:
    After the events at Narshaddaa the New Republic found that Tavion had somehow been able to clone Darth Vader. The Vader Clones are now being used as frontline troops for the Dark Alliance forces. With the death of their leader Tavion, the Dark Alliance are somehow still able to function and are taking control of countless star systems throughout the galaxy. The Jedis numbers are thin but with the help of Luke Skywalker and Kyle Katarn, the Jedi are still managing to hold their own against the almighty Dark Alliance.
    The New Republic now fear that the Dark Alliance may close in and try to seize the power from the Valley of the Jedi. This must not be allowed to happen. And so the New Republic have decided that it is time for the Valley to be destroyed.
    Countless Jedi Knights now keep watch over the demolition operation to hold back any attack that may come from the Dark Alliance.
    The New Republic have enlisted the help of Mara Jade to also assist with the operation and she is now traveling to the Valley of the Jedi to witness the destruction of the main Valley's fountain of power.
    FEAR IS THE PATH TO THE DARK SIDE. FEAR LEADS TO ANGER, ANGER LEADS TO HATE, HATE LEADS TO SUFFERING. - JEDI MASTER YODA
    Additional Credits:
    I am in no way responsible for the other models and MODS that have been included in this MOD. I only take credit for the maps. All other credit goes to the authors of the other MODS and you can see who is responsible for these in the closing credits at the end of the level.

    Installation Information & Playing Notes:
    Make sure you have the latest patch for the game!
    Using Winzip or WinRAR, unzip the 'Vots' folder and the 'Vots.bat' file into the 
    JK3/GameData folder. Then simply double click the 'Vots.bat' icon to play.
    Once installed I recommend seeing how the game will be easier using either the staff or dual 
    lightsabers that it may be best playing the game on 'Jedi' difficulty with the single saber 
    and play the game on 'Jedi Knight' difficulty while using the saber staff or dual sabers.
    When selecting the single saber style please note that the style you decide to choose will be
    the only fighting style you will use throughout the whole level!
    <<<!!!MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ENABLED SUBTITLES IN THE GAME OPTIONS MENU, AS THEY ARE NEEDED 
    FOR THE CUTSCENE DIALOGUE!!!>>>

    Construction Information:
    Known Bugs: If there are any slowdowns try turning off 'dynamic glow' in the 'video options' menu. 
    You may want to skip certain cutscenes by pressing the use button. However the screen may appear to freeze but will have the words 'skipping cinematic' at the top. It hasn't froze, this is normal. You should just be patient and allow the cutscene to skip, which will happen after a few seconds.
        
    When part 4 is loading you may or may not have some problems. The briefing screen may freeze or you may get a 'CL_GetServerCommand:a reliable command was cycled out' error that will prevent you from going onto part 4. If this happens then you can try one of four things.
    Bring down the console with the combination of the 'left shift' and ` keys and then type in "map part_4" without the quotes and then press enter. If this doesn't work then try again but as it is trying to load, hit the 'escape' key to return back to the main menu and then try the above console command from the main menu. Quit the game and then reload the level. Restart the computer Reinstall the game and/or the MOD. Testing System Specifications:
    This MOD was tested on the following PC specifications:
    AMD Athlon XP 2400 Processor
    1GB DDR RAM
    ATI Radeon 9800 Pro Graphics Card
    Windows XP Home Edition

  11. The Dark Alliance

    Author: Steven Brown (Blaster)
    Date Of Release: November 2002
    Description:
    This is the sequel to my singleplayer map 'The Mainframe 2.0'. If you have not yet played 'The Mainframe 2.0' then I suggest you download and play it before you play this one.
    You can get it from the following websites:
    The Mainframe
    The Dark Alliance II: Vengeance of the Sith
    I hope you enjoy this map just as much as I did making it.... no really I did!
    - Blaster
    Story:
    A year has passed since the encounter with Darth Vader at the mainframe complex on Kejim. It has remained a mystery to how Darth Vader was somehow brought back to life and the Republic have found no leads to the location of Tavion.
                 
    UNTIL NOW! 
    A smuggler known as Marlow Baruk, brother of Reelo Baruk, has been receiving large quantities of Imperial equipment. Republic spies have found that Tavion, along with her new forces, have been negotiating with the smuggler in a quiet part of Narshaddaa. It is believed that she is giving Imperial equipment to Marlow in order for her to create a secret base underneath Marlow's own hideout and are allying their forces together in an attempt to start a war against the New Republic. If this kind of act is to occur then who knows what will happen.
     
    An offensive has not been easy and all attempts to inspect Marlow's hideout are at a loss. He refuses to co-operate. The Republic has no choice but to send in someone to investigate.
    Kyle is now a Jedi mercenary agent working for the New Republic and they have called for his skills in dealing with these matters and besides Kyle has some unfinished business with Tavion. The mission is not going to be easy. First Kyle must inspect Marlow's hideout and see if he can find Marlow himself and interrogate him. Then if possible he must apprehend Tavion inside her secret base and send a signal to blue squad, so they can take control of the base and investigate what Tavion has been up to.
                 
    Marlow's hideout will be well guarded and the entrance will surely be hidden.
    Additional Credits:

  12. The Mainframe

    Author: Steven Brown (Blaster)
    Date Of Release: July 2002
    Description:
    This is the first in a trilogy of mods. The sequels are:
    The Dark Alliance
    The Dark Alliance II: Vengeance of the Sith
    This is the second version of my single player level 'The Mainframe'. Most players found Vader to be too tough in the original version and found it could have been bigger. Well now IT IS! There are now two maps, one called part 1 and the other called part 2. Part 2 will be familiar to all those who have played the original. I don't want to spoil any surprises, so what are you waiting for go play!
    Story:
    Kyle and Luke have found that Tavion has somehow resurrected Darth Vader. Luke decides to go to Kejim alone and defeat his father once again. At the meantime Kyle must try and find out where Tavion is hiding. However Kyle senses a disturbance in the force and feels that Luke is in trouble. Kyle decides to go to Kejim and help out Luke.
                 
    Kyle arrives at the Imperial outpost on Kejim. Luke's ship is there but he is nowhere in sight. However Kyle can sense were he went and follows his trail. Just as he is about to enter the base a Reborn and two stormtroopers come through a door followed by a familiar droid sound approaching from behind. This is it there is no turning back. Can you defeat Darth Vader? or will you fail and allow Vader to bring about the rebirth of the empire. 
    DO OR DO NOT, THERE IS NO TRY. - Jedi Master Yoda
    Mission Objectives:
    Kill Darth Vader Engage all Remnant troops in the area Find Luke Escape with Luke alive Additional Credits:
    All the people at jediknightii.net, Michael Frost who created the Darth Vader MOD and Crapse who created the Jedi Knight Reborn skin.
    Joe Dyer for the 'Bridge' prefab and Yves Allaire for the 'Bridge' prefab textures. Gidion The Dead for the 'Imperial Screen and Computer' prefab and the 'Hangar' prefabs. Expositus for the 'Imperial Eagle' prefab.
    All prefabs credited can be found at www.jedioutcastmaps.com.

    Installation Information:

    Simply put the Mainframe 2.0.pk3 file in your jedioutcast/gamedata/Mainframe 2.0 directory, load up the game goto the 'Setup' menu and click on 'Mods' then click on Mainframe 2.0 and then click 'Load Mod'. Then bring down the console and type in "map part_1" (without the quotes). If at any time you just wish to play part 2 type in the console "map part_2" (without the quotes).
    Using the 'Mods' menu will allow you to put in the Reborn Advanced and Vader.
    If you don't know how to bring down the console goto the Jedi Outcast main menu and press the ` key and the left shift key together.
    If you wish to quit the credits at the end either press your use button to speed them up or bring down the console and type "quit" (without the quotes).

    Construction Information:
    Vis Time:   About 45 Minutes for both maps
    Build Time: About 50 hours
    Known Bugs: While fighting the Advanced Reborn you may hear Kyle say the line "Strange he looked like a Jedi and fought like a Jedi etc." This is supposed to happen only when you have defeated him but for some reason he just says it sometimes. At one point he even said it four times! It seems to happen not that often though. Another bug which has happened only twice is some kind of sound problem. What happens is the game will stop and return to the main menu with a 'sound input out of range' type of error. I don't know what this is but it happened twice when I was destroying the probe droids with a saber throw. It happens very rarely though and if it happens with you then just restart the level and play again. Hopefully the problem won't happen again on your second go.
    Author Notes: My apologies to all the people who were annoyed with the fact that Vader took about 600 hits to kill him in version 1.0. Now Vader's hit points are 4000 and Luke's are 2500. Vader is still tough but should take less time to kill. Vader and Luke only spawn when you are going up the elevator. This should fix the Luke dying straight away bug.

  13. Jedi-Dog

    Author: Darth Dizzy
     
     
    This mod adds a Jedi-Dog in the singleplayer selection screen and in the multiplayer profile.
    Jedi-Dogs are strange creatures from the planet Grrrwoof in the Outer Rim.
    There are also npc jedidogs. To spawn it (in SP), first type 'devmapall' in the console (helpusobi 1 in v 1.01) and then
    'npc spawn jedidoggood' for the light side Jedi-Dog
    'npc spawn jedidogevil' for the dark side Jedi-Dog
    'npc spawn jedidogmaster' for the strongest Jedi-Dog or
    'npc spawn jedidogpuppy' for the puppy version of the Jedi-Dog.
    The puppy's are little doggies armed with a blaster. You can spawn them to help you
    (but you need lots of them cuz they are extremely weak).

  19. Dragon

    Author: Wudan
     
    -1- General Information
    To put it simply, Dragon is an animation creation and editing tool for the Ghoul2 animation file format, .gla, used in both Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy (hereafter referred to as JKA). It's primary purpose is to create animations and write them in to the .gla format, which can then be merged with the existing JKA animations (or other .gla files) for use in-game with little knowledge needed.
     
    Dragon has been created on a machine utilizing an AMD Duron 950, 256 MB ram and an ATI Radeon 9200 videocard, which is a fairly low-end system by today's standards. As such, most computers should be able to handle Dragon program smoothly (but, because of Dragon's avatar system, it is possible to put too much strain on any system.)
     
    Dragon features:
    A drag-able and transparant UI
    An Avatar system
    A Console to do nifty things!
    A Complete Bone List to animate
    A Standard model
    A few example animations
    Light Saber Rendering (extremely nifty)
    Weapon Rendering (blasters rockets etc)
    A floor tile, for better animations
    Save and load system
    A blending option
    And probably much more

    -2- Installation
    The current release (0.1.0) is just a .zip file - you will need a program such as WinZip or WinRAR to extract Dragon. When you extract Dragon, it is important that you keep the folder hierarchy as it is in the .zip file. If you extract Dragon to C:\, the program will be in C:\Dragon\ All you'd need to do is navigate to that folder using Windows Explorer and double-click Dragon.exe. As of 0.1.0, Dragon has a default model that is loaded using the default Avatar, so you should see a shiny little guy, ready to animate.
     
    -3- Getting Started / Basic Usage
    Ok, you've gone through the trouble of downloading Dragon, extracting it, and running the core executeable - now what?
     
    You should see a shiny little gray dude, a box that says "BoneList" and a box that says "SliderBox". Below the gray dude is a little stick thing, made of a white, green, and blue sticks. You still with me? Cool.
    Let's focus on the BoneList, since it's basic use is pretty easy. You see a list of bones - model_root is in the middle - the active bone is dislplayed in the middle of this box. You can click on any of the bones listed above or below to switch to those bones - as you change bones you will notice that the stick thing (the white, green, and blue sticks mentioned earlier) change position and orientation.
    Ok, now you're ready to do some fun stuff. See that slider box that you've been itching to mess with? This is the heart of Dragon - You have several things in here that are noteworthy - a Reset Button (completely obliterates any posing you've done of the current bone), and two sets of 'Sliders'. The sliders on the left are the important ones - the ones on the right we'll get to in a minute.
    Go ahead and select the r_femur_YZ bone in the BoneList. Next, click on the green slider on the left - and hold your mouse down - and move your mouse left or right. You should see the gray guy's leg swing back and forth. You can now try moving the blue slider - his leg will sway from side to side.
    Getting from here to making a cool stance is actually pretty easy - it's like playing with GI Joes, or some such action figure - you just pose the model how you want it. It might take some getting used to, but you're on your way
     
    -3- Console Commands / Advanced Usage
    Dragon uses a console, designed to be somewhat familiar to people who've played a game based on the Quake3 engine. First up to bring down the console press ` (you may need to enter ASCII code 0126).
     
    Console Commands:
     
    screenshot
    Takes a screenshot - saved in the 'screenshots' folder.
     
    fnext
    Go to next frame (Hotkey: K)
    NOTE: Also used to create frames, hotkey does NOT create a frame
     
    fprev
    Go to previous frame (Hotkey: L)
     
    fdel
    Delete frame - (deletes the current frame.) After deleting, Dragon will go to either the next frame (if there is one), or the previous frame (if there is not one.)
     
    fcpy <number>
    Frame Copy - Copies a specific frame number.
     
    fcpyprev
    Frame Copy Previous - Copies the frame before this frame. If there isn't one, it does nothing.
     
    fcpynext
    Frame Copy Next - Copies the frame after this frame. If there isn't one, it does nothing.
     
    fspeed <number>
    Frame speed, if you want your frames play at a higher rate, you need a high fspeed, you want a slower rate, u need a small fspeed. Default fspeed is 20. Usage: fspeed 20
     
    fblend <number>
    This is what makes the animation smooth. Its simple to use once u get used to it. Usage: in frame 1 is a stance in frame 2 is a different stance. U want the switch between stances to be fast, so 10 frames should be right. Bring down the console and type: fblend 8. now u should have a smooth switch from stance to stance. NOTE: To prevent odd bugs from happening cycle trough the animation mannually once before clicking the preview button! Always substract the amount of frames u already have for example if u want an animation to last for 20 frames and u have 5 frames animated than its 20-5 = 15 , fblend 15. Hope that makes sense play around with it.
     
    finsa
    Inserts a new frame after the current one.
     
    finsb
    Inserts a new frame before the current one.
     
    save <name>
    Saves a .cfg file to Dragon's directory. This file describes the animation you are currently working on. You do not need to add the .cfg, Dragon does this for you. So, 'save myanim' creates myanim.cfg in the Dragon directory.
     
    load <name>
    Loads an animation over the current animation, creates the necessary number of frames (but doesn't nuke any frames - so if you load a 5 frame anim and have 10 frames, you'll have 5 frames on the end of your workspace that you probably don't need. Use fdel to nuke 'em.
     
    savegla <name>
    Saves a .gla file in Dragon's directory under your given name. Usage: savegla my_stance
     
    impframe <number> <number>
    Import frames from the loaded .gla - so that you can edit previously finished animations. The first <number> is the starting frame number for your import, and the second <number> is how many frames to import.
     
    It is recommended that you use the save and load commands to work on animations, as saving to gla and reimporting several times introduces compression artifacts - in layman's terms, your animation will be broken and you may need to re-do the entire thing. Importing from the original should be fine, as that's what the target executeable (in most cases, Jedi Academy) does anyway.
     
    NOTE: To load up a gla you have to edit an avatar file, or make a new one. More on this in the avatar section.
     
    -4- Avatar System
    The Avatar System is one of the more robust components of Dragon. With it, you can animate multiple models at once, bolt models to those model's bones, change the saber's color, and length. So, how to access this advanced functionality? Listen well, young traveller, for a world of infinite possibility awaits those with a steady hand and an open ear.
     
    Dragon, in 0.1.0b, comes with "avatar/default.cfg". (Now might be a good time to set Notepad to be the default editor for .cfg's, if it isn't already.) Opening that file shows:
     

    Wudan{{org 0.0 0.0 0.0gla _JAhumanoid.glaglm models/players/stormtrooper/model.glmskin models/players/stormtrooper/model_default.skinbolt models/weapons2/saber_dual_5/saber_dual_5.glm rhang_tag_bonecolor 0.05 0.15 0.05length 32.0}}
    The syntax is fairly similar to .shader file format, so skinners won't be at a total loss here. There are three main, must-have parts of an avatar file, the 'org', the 'gla', and the 'glm' lines. Oh, and the 'skin' line is fairly important. That said, a basic template to follow for creating new avatars would be:

    AvatarName{{org 0.0 0.0 0.0gla INSERT_NAME_OF_ANIMATION_FILEglm INSERT_NAME_OF_MODEL_FILEskin INSERT_NAME_OF_SKIN_FILE}}
    The org line has three floating point values past it. These tell Dragon where you want to draw the model at. This is useful because adding multiple models would be confusing if they all were at the '0.0 0.0 0.0' location. The gla line has a filename after it. By default it is _JAhumanoid.gla, which is a really small, single frame animation file that contains all of the skeleton file info. The glm line has a filename after it. This can be any .glm file, it is highly recommended that it be a .glm that was made to work with the gla you've selected. The skin line points to a skin file specifically created for the glm that you have selected. As of 0.0.1b, not loading a .skin file results in a crash.
     
    -5- Tutorial: Replacing Animations
    So the reason u downloaded dragon was not to read allot of crap but to get urself some animations done! So here we go! This is much easier than u think, Thanks to dragon. Its not hard either. Ive just written allot of text so it would be clear First we create our workspace. Extract /models/players/_humanoid/ (assets1.pk3) to a easy to find place. I've created:
     
    "C:/Base/Models/Players/_humanoid/"
     
    NOTE: /Base/ has to be there. if not ull get errors Check the _humanoid folder, see if u can see the .gla and the animations.cfg files. Now download GLAmerge written by Ask.
     
    Now, create your animation in Dragon. That's easier said than done, right? Well, once you have a completed animation, you can move on to the next step.
     
    However, before you export to the .gla format, there are a few things to consider - for one, have you saved the file (save command), so you can edit the original animation later? If so, excellent. save, then savegla - I think a good idea would be to automatically save when savegla is called - this could be done for the next release - any thoughts?
     
    Ok, now the tricky part is that you'll need the very first frame of animation be empty - it technically doesn't matter, but you need to understand that this buffer needs to be there because other animators, using packages like XSI and 3dsMax, weren't able to keep the skeleton in-tact when exporting to gla and merging, unless they had made the first frame of their animations the base pose, otherwise the animation could not be successfully merged in with glamerge. Dragon does maintain the skeleton's structure, but uses the same merging program as everyone else.
     
    Anyway, the tricky part is that Dragon currently has a blending system that 'wraps' around the animation - if the last frame of animation has blended bones in it, they blend with the first frame. This helps with walk cycles, but makes exporting to gla format pretty tricky. Since 'unblending' bones does not destroy their position, save your animation, then unblend each bone of the first and last frames, then finsb on frame 0 - you should now have a blank frame 0 and the rest of the frames are working fine - but, because Dragon is finicky about frames, cycle through all the frames before you export. You're ready to export - lucky you!
     
    To export, enter the console and put in

    savegla YOURFILENAME
    (do not append .gla, Dragon does this already.) Ok, you're done with Dragon, go ahead and exit (you did save, right?)
     
    In the folder where Dragon is located, you will find YOURFILENAME.gla - copy the .gla to the humanoid folder mentioned earlier. Than create a new text document. In that document type the following:

    @ECHO OFF"glamerge.exe" "_humanoid.gla" "<gla>" -oPAUSEEXIT
    This is a basic setting. replace <gla> with whatever your gla is called. i got this: @ECHO OFF "glamerge.exe" "_humanoid.gla" "my_run.gla" -o PAUSE EXIT (if u are an advanced modder, see the readme of glamerge for more options) Save the txt file as gla_merge.txt Now rename the file to gla_merge.bat (the .bat file tells the program what files to merge) now double click on the .bat file (make sure the following files are in the _humanoid directory. Glamerge, _humanoid.gla, your GLA.) It should now ask u for an output name. I suggest humanoid.gla (NOT _humanoid.gla!). Because this way u can rename the humanoid.gla or delete it when it isnt good while keeping the original (of course its just a copy of the original located in assets1.pk3). But for now lets do new.gla Now create the same directory somewhere else (no need for /base/ now) c:/models/players/_humanoid/ copy the other _humanoid files and paste them here. delete everything except Animations.cfg and new.gla Now rename new.gla to _humanoid.gla. Open up the animations.cfg with good old notepad. Now find the running animation. (U can use modview) k now its time for some small time scripting (not 2 hard dont worry) Now uve found the animation u want to replace BOTH_RUN1 12305 26 0 40 (name) (beginframe) (frames) (loop) 40(framespeed) K now. we have to leave the name the same. Now we find out what the last frame is, if u scroll down a bit ull see that ROOT is the last frame on frame: 21374 and it lasts 2 frame wich comes to a total of 21376.Now we know what to fill in the first, now for the second. How many frames is your animation? really simple if u've paid attention when gla merge was busy you shouldve noticed it counted the frames So there. I got 20 frames. Next is wether u want it too loop or not. 0 = yes, -1=no. We have a running anim so i would say 0, yes. And finally the framespeed. This one u can set whatever u like. in dragon the speed was 20 and i liked it so ill use 20 There we're done analyzing. So lets do this ! BOTH_RUN1 21376 20 0 20 Ahh yes were done! Pack /models/players/_humanoid/ in a .pk3 (the same way u would pack a skin) and place it in your base. Launch JKA. play a game and look at your new animation! NOTE: your next animation has to start on a different frame, see the last frame is 21376, plus the 20 frames u used wich would become 21396 I hope u get the point. Delete the .pk3 and yer jka is back to normal, Isnt it simple? Its only simple thanks to Dragon:The Ghoul2 Animation Tool

  20. Spanki's Sith Customization

    Author: Spanki
     
    This is a Sith Customization based on the HS_anakin model of Hapslash. You will find 27 new customization screens after having this modification installed, so its impossible to have both, Jedi and Sith Customization installed at the same time with having all its possibilities (I noticed that the limitation of customization screens is 32 when I had the mod already done). So you gotta decide, what you prefer. In the first time I made this modification for Sith based clans around the world but decided later to include some RPG chars coming along with it. These RPG chars are the main difference between Jedi and Sith Customization, even to light side RPG chars are included here. These Chars all have unique robes that are not customizable and of course unique faces that are not customizable either. Another difference regarding to the Jedi customization is the fact that I worked with alot of glowing effects this time, you are able to costumize every torso with red and blue glowing lights. By the way, there are 2 unique robes at the end of every of the 9 different torso menus. The RPG character are all selectable at the MP icon screen (22 icons, 2 for each character). Altough I decided neither to do NPC nor Bot support with this Mod. It seems many people cant handle that big amount of NPCs , or they arent aware of how to delete them. Therefore is coming a NPC list for spawning within this zip file and an NPC folder, just copy the NPC you want to add and paste it in "ext_data / npcs" folder of the mod.
     
    . . . the only Bot you can choose to fight is my beloved Exar Khun . . .
     
    Maybe some people remember the Jedi_Customization_Plus, there were just Humans, Chiss , a Rodian and some Cyborg species included. This time I decided to do more species variants . . . of course the main Heads still have a human topic but there is a Kelifarian, a Rodian, some Cyborgs, a Lizard like dude, a Frog guy ;D , a big selection of different Heads form the Ratatakki species (Ratatakki is the species of Asajj Ventraa, and they look very sithish in my eyes) and finally some heads that are so bizarr that you cant say what species they are . . .
     
     
    But the facts now:
    ------------------
     
    - 27 customization screens
    - 96 customizable heads ( + 11 unique heads of RPG chars )
    - 288 customizable torsos ( + 11 unique torsos of RPG chars )
    - 20 customizable boots
    - red and blue glowing lights variations
     
    - 552.960 possibilities at all
    - 11 RPG chars
     
    Exar Khun
    Darth Bane
    Darth Krayt
    A´shared Hett
    Darth Kruhl
    Ulic Qel Droma
    Kyp Durron
    Cade Skywalker
    Aviar
    Jagged Fel
    Nomi Sunrider ( I wanted to include something for the ladies )

  21. Episode III Jedi Starfighter

    Created by Gregory A. Birmingham (Manquesa)
     
    All modeling, skinning (except for the 3 new skins), effects (except for the engine exhaust and primary weapon fire which were made by Ravensoft), animations, shaders, .veh files, and gfx were created by Manquesa.
     
    WHAT'S NEW:
     
    This file includes 6 variants of the Star Wars Episode 3 Jedi Starfighter.
     
    Anakin's Yellow Jedi Interceptor -- made by Manquesa
    Obi-Wan's Red Jedi Interceptor -- made by Manquesa
    Anakins (or Darth Vader's) Green Jedi Interceptor -- made by Manquesa
    Yoda's Green Jedi Interceptor -- made by Dark_Cuillere
    Hot Rod Jedi Interceptor concept -- made by Dark_Cuillere
    Plo Koon's Blue? Jedi Interceptor -- made by Jadendecar (this version is Jadencar's concept of the Plo Koon version had Plo Koon used an Ep. 3 Jedi Interceptor instead of a the Ep. 2 stle JSF that he actually used in the movie.)
     
    All versions are equipped with an astromech droid. The astromechs used were created by Ravensoft. The skin on the astromech droid on the Obi Wan version is an edited version of the R2D2 skin created by Ravensoft, Edited by Manquesa. The skin on the astromech droid on the Plo Koon version is and edited version of the R2D2 skin created by Ravensoft, Edited by Jadendecar and Manquesa.
     
    Also fixed a problem with the original mesh in which the maingun mount support was in the wrong position, it was pushed back into the cockpit. I doubt anyone noticed though, I didn't until very recently.
     
    And lastly I also changed the secondary missile effect to better match what I originally intended it to look like. I used the ATST missile effect and placed my missile model on it.
     
    I am currently working on yet another version of this ship for a future release. One that will include a fully modeled cockpit interior as well as a few other changes to better match the way they looked in the movie. So be on the lookout out for version 2.0 to be released hopefully sometime in the not too distant future.
     
    Features:
     
    Multiple versions including an Anakins, Obi-Wan's, Vader's, Plo Koons, Yoda's, and a Hot Rod design.
    Animated wing foils -- can be flown with wing foils in the open or closed position.
    To fly with the wing foils open, simply perform a normal take off allowing the animation to be initiated.
    To fly with the wing foil closed, begin a normal take off, then press forward soon after take off making sure to do so before the animation can begin.
    Primary weapon fire -- green imperial lasers
    Secondary weapon fire -- missile's
    Barrel Roll -- using the "Step Left" and "Step Right" buttons (which I strongly suggest you reverse) will allow you to barrel roll and control the vehicle in a manner very much like the way they were flown in the movie.
     
    To spawn the vehicle, type:
     
    Anakins Jedi Interceptor -- /npc spawn vehicle manq-jsf
    Obi Wan's Jedi Interceptor -- /npc spawn vehicle manq-jsf-obi
    Anakins/Vader's Jedi Interceptor -- /npc spawn vehicle manq-jsf-vader
    Yoda's Jedi Interceptor -- /npc spawn vehicle manq-jsf-yoda
    Hot Rod concept Jedi Interceptor -- /npc spawn vehicle manq-jsf-hotrod
    Plo Koon's Jedi Interceptor -- /npc spawn vehicle manq-jsf-plo
     
    Please feel free to use this vehicle in any manner which you see fit with or without permission, I could care less. I'm releasing it so people will hopefully use it. I only ask that you credit me for my work.
     
    Thank you,
    Manquesa

    the icon to begin. Make sure you go into the Setup screen to change your keyboard preferences.
     
    Requirements : Jedi Academy must be patched to version 1.01 to work.
    Please set your graphics options to their highest settings for maximum enjoyment.
     
    Comments : Behind a veil of secrecy the evil Empire is creating a doomsday army--one that,
    if finished, will become the final cog in the Empire's arsenal of terror and
    domination. Your Mission?
     
    Join the Rebel Alliance's covert operations division, infiltrate the Empire, then
    battle every man and machine the Imperial Forces can muster. Search a vast galaxy
    for clues, attack enemy bases - all in a desperate attempt to stop the activation
    of this fearsome new weapon.
     
    It's you and your blaster against an entire Empire. May the Force be with you.

  25. Boba Fett ESB

    Author: Ownedbacon


     
    DESCRIPTION: I reskinned Boba Fett using numerous photo references to recreate his original look from Empire Strikes Back. Giving him his green gauntlets, green jetpack, alternate wookie braid scalps, and a more subtle color for his armor since the movies weren't as vibrant as the base model. I altered the cape and I also changed the color of the jumpsuit to as well. In addition to all of this I added Boba Fett's original sounds from both Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.
     
    BUGS: There aren't any i am aware of. I had some problems with the shaders but i believe those are all resolved.
     
    COMMENTS: There are two different characters in this mod. One of the original Boba Fett and another of the Clone Boba Fett.
    The models are named:
     
    boba_esb
    boba_esb_clone
     
    Permissions: This can be used as long as credit is given, Include readme as well.
