  1. Hello all! I've been secretly modding for some time, and I started wondering about a jumpy subject. The force-jumps in Jedi Outcast / Jedi Academy is very unlike that of the earlier game Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II. The difference? In DF2 you have to hold the space bar for a short time and release it to do a force jump. It basically charges up with a (imho) cool sound, before you fly up at a dangerously high speed. If you look at the OpenJK code, in codemp/game/bg_pmove.c you can find the Force Jump code for Outcast/Academy. However, there is also some old code/comments which implements the chargeable force jump of DF2! With some tweaking it's possible to enable it and even the bots have some commented out code to use it (kinda). I really liked the force jump of DF2, even though it can be annoying to fail a force jump. If you look at the movies, it seems most people use the DF2 style force jump. The only exception I can find is Yoda, who can force jump like crazy it seems. Which type do you prefer, and maybe why?
