I am starting a Jedi Knight (Dark Forces 2) mod. It is not the entire game, only the duels:

  1. Qu Rahn vs. the Dark Jedi
  2. Kyle vs. Yun
  3. Kyle vs. Maw
  4. Kyle vs. Sariss
  5. Dark Kyle vs. Yun
  6. Kyle vs. Boc
  7. Dark Kyle vs. Boc
  8. Kyle vs. Jerec
  9. Dark Kyle vs. Jerec

The player will be able to choose the character, like in Movie Duels 2.
Dark Kyle uses only Dark Side powers. Kyle himself uses only Light Side powers after the duel against Maw.
And I will try to convert the SMACKER DF2 videos to ROQ which JA uses, if LucasArts allow me to do so.

And I need:

  • Skinners;
  • Mappers;
  • Experienced menu scripters;
  • Gorc and Pic;

Well, what I have now to do the mod:

  • DF2 Kyle by Jeremy "Mr. Alias" Whinery (permission granted)
  • Dark Forces 2 Skin Pack by DarthPhae (permission granted)
  • The maps are being remade by The_Fixer.
  • Many lightsaber hilts by Trauma Sensei (permission granted)
  • Yun's lightsaber by Inyri Forge
  • The SMACKER DF2 videos converted to the Jedi Academy format

As you can see, I have the bricks but I only need to join them.

Now, what is news, Darth Phae said that I can use his skin pack. Jeremy said that I can use his DF2 Kyle. Trauma Sensei said in the readme that everyone can use his work, as long as he is credited.

It is actually amazing that this mod is progressing even with a small team (me and Ltfuller, scripting contributions from GarynDakari).

The Yun duel map is completely done. I just need to convert cutscenes and the deathscript. The Boc duel map is almost ready, and it is being made by ltfuller.


Apparently, it is a mix of the Valley of the Jedi from the JK in-game, JK's cutscenes, the novel and the JK2 version. Once finished the Yun duel scripting, the other side (Dark Side, playing as Yun) will also be available.

I'll add the First Person LightSaber (FPLS) support too, but be aware that some lightsaber moves may make the camera go off, and the slow-mode death will be disabled in FPLS, because when you kill a Dark Jedi, the camera will rotate around.

Ah, and I forgot to tell you, it will have extras. I will just tell the name, not the content:

Dark Side of the Kyle
Second Valley Raid
Rise of the Katarn Empire

I will give ten dollars to the one who manages to discover the content of one extra! :D

No, it isn't. I will reveal everything now to you, because you tried.

People, I forgot to say. We need someone with image editing and creating skills and maybe JKA menu scripting skills. It seems I am not getting the job done, even though the main menu is not ready yet. Can you help?

Ah, and what would you think if I used the Duel at the Invisible Hand Observation Deck map in the Qu Rahn vs. Dark Jedi duel? It looks like the Vengeance Observation Deck, really.

Great idea! I love the idea of another duel mod, now all we need is someone to finish the original trilogy and KOTOR duels and we can make a gift set! :)

If you make a duel pack I will be pleased you you add it. You have my permission when I finish this mod. And maybe I can help with MD TOT.
