  1. Haps Imperial Officer

    Author: HapsSlash


     
    The first pk3 will overwrite the Jedi Outcast's default imperial model, and was intended to be your all-purpose standard officer. The model itself features 7 different rank badges, 4 individual code cylinders, 2 seperate pairs of belt boxes, and an additional holster.
     
    The pack also contains 6 different texture sets for the various uniforms; although not all of them are set up to be used in this pk3, and with separate base textures for each of the rank badges included; virtually any rank of officer can be recreated.
     
    The traditional team skins have been replaced with full color uniforms; red, representing the uniform of the Imperial Intelligence agents; and blue, similar to the uniform of the officers of the old republic.
     
    Since this was truly intended to be a simple model replacement, there are no new bots or extra sounds; only what is needed to overwrite the original officers.
     
     
    Also included within this pack, is the DH-17 model replacement for the original imperial pistol.

  2. Sebulba

    Author: Duncan_10158


     

    Submitted by: Barricade24


     
    The strong Dug physique comes from evolution on a high gravity world. On Malastare, the Dugs are arboreal beings, brachiating among the canopies with alarming speed. They have built primitive villages called tree thorps in the Malastare forests of the western continent. An especially dangerous Dug who could once be found roaming the streets of Mos Espa, Sebulba is a shifty Podracing champion who never lets such trite concepts as rules and sportsmanship get in the way of victory.
    Sebulba is a perfectionist. He personally organizes and rehearses the bands that play his fanfare whenever he enters a racing arena. (starwars.com/databank)

  3. Count Dracula

    Author: James Tragesser


     

    Submitted by: Barricade24


     
    This version of Dracula has always been my favorite. Other versions of Dracula have been made in the past decade that I have found to be less flattering of this monster. To often do you see movies that have Dracula depicted as feminine and girly. Especially in Japanese animation! Its like Japan has an obsession with feminine men! Anyways I built this model to represent the Dracula I have always loved. The Dracula people dress up as for Halloween.

    A completely new Wookiee player model for JK2. The fur effects were created using alpha channels and shaders.The default skin is Chewbacca, CTF skins are based on the wookiee bounty hunter Snoova. Bot support is included.
     
    ENJOY!
     
    Other Info : LOD support is not included yet. The mesh has been giving me some trouble, and I need time to get it right. I plan to have LOD support in future releases.

  6. Dual Saber Staffs

    Author: [JFE]Cl-Ch-Nojac{L}


     

    Submitted by Swagmaster


     
    This is yet another mod from jk3 files. This is a neat mod that lets you use 2 saber staffs with the dual saber style. Enjoy!
     
    File Description:
     
    This is a handy little mod that I conned this noob §Got Milk?§ into testing this for me about a year ago. When he made it I was thrilled to death - because this mod alters the sabers in almost every way a saber CAN be modded. (length, defense, dmg, color, etc...). The dmgs are pretty much a 1 hit kill - every time. I use it a LOT - its by far the strongest mod I've ever seen and I love it sooo much!! It is a Dual Staff Mod and the best you'll find out there by far.

  8. Q3Map2Toolz

    Q3Map2Toolz is an alternative front-end application for Ydnar's Q3Map2 to q3map2build. It is larger than it's build counterpart but for current days still small.
    It's main advantage is that it has an included mapacker by Equim which greatly reduces effort in making the .pk3 files.
     
    Additionally, it allows the use of more BSP switches than Q3map2 GUI.

  9. Q3map2 Graphical User Interface

    Author: Darth Arth
     
     
    Why did anybody code a new frontend for old Q3 based engine compiler?
     
    Hmm.., cause i'm still a small active part of german JK-mapping community
     
    Till today i used q3map2build to compile my maps, but i dreamed about a fronted,
    which can check the logfile "live", during the compilation.
     
    But the problem was, i couldn't write a working Log-Listener.
    I asked DLB for providing me the q3map2build-quellcode, but received no answer
     
    many days after, i did it finally...
     
    ... an working log-listener
     
    It was the beginning of q3map2GUI.
     
    Q3map2GUI is simple like q3map2build, but powerfull like q3map2toolz
     
    The most different featuers of q3map2GUI are:
     
    - "live" Log - checking for errors ans warnings (You can see them at one click)
    - you can compile and play maps in subfolders! (base/maps/ ...."
    - you can specify SP and MP game executables
    - this app do not add any registry keys, not one
     
    BSPC is not supported at this time.

  22. EasyGen

    With EasyGen you build up terrains and export them as Radiant source map (including alphamap and metahsaders).
     
    Bitmap import/export is also supported.
     
    Supported games
    Quake3
    Return To Castle Wolfenstein
    Generally all games based on Quake3 engine (Including Jedi Outcast/Jedi Academy), who need a source map(.map), an alphamap(.pcx) and a metashader script(.shader) to compile a terrain entity. (if you want to to learn more about this process read the Official Terrain Manual written by Paul Jaquays contained in the latest GTK installations)

    Installation
    Make sure to extract all files contained in the zip in the same folder.
     
    After you've extracted the zip, EasyGen folder should looks something like this:
     
    EasyGen\modifiers\*.* - modifiers
    EasyGen\templates\*.* - various files (*.shader, *.cfg)
    EasyGen\save\ - saved terrains (*.egn)
    EasyGen\tutorial\*.* - tutorial stuff (old but sufficient)
    EasyGen\EasyGen.exe - executable
    EasyGen\btnexgenipl32.dll - a dll
    EasyGen\readme.txt - this readme.txt
     
    EasyGen will not run if 'btnexgenipl32.dll' is not in the same folder.
     
    Also EasyGen needs to know your work mod folder under <your_game> root folder (ie baseq3\, missionpack\, main\ etc etc), you will be prompted to browse for that asa you start EasyGen. I repeat for the last time, you need to browse for a MOD folder, not for the <your_game> root folder.
     
    Features
    Terrain shape manipulation through several modifiers (Hill,Cone etc etc).
    Program your own modifiers with an easy asm like language. Read 'custom_modifier.txt' to learn more.
    Direct export source map plus alphamap and metashader script.
    Alphamap import/export.
    Bitmap import/export.
    Models (md3) are loaded automatically from <your_game>/<your_mod>/models/ directory.
    Import brushes from a map file. Brushes are only used as space references to aid positiong the terrain entity. Bruhses manipulation is not supported by EasyGen and BRUSHES are NOT exported toghether with the terrain. Only the TERRAIN ENTITY itself is exported and the models you have inserted.
    Terrain import from a map file (and related alphamap and metashader). This should work in the most of the cases.
    To exclude triangles from export: - select MODIFIER TAB. - click the pink triangle button on the toolbar (the one with the red cross) - SHIFT+LEFTCLK on a triangle
    Upgrading shader templates (templates/*.*) is useful if the author of the compiler (ydnar) makes come modifications to the compiler itself (q3map2.exe). Replacing old templates with the new ones will ensure that EasyGen will export shaders hat will work with the new version of the compiler.

  24. 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

  25. Carcass

    Compiles Ghoul2 models (GLM) from dotXSI files (supports dotXSI versions: 1.1, 1.3, 3.0, 3.5). This version does not exhibit the bone jitter that was present in the original SDK carcass.exe, and is meant as a replacement for it.
