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.

A Demo, only one level. The level is: MAW, the Revenge. Many things may be missing, but wait. What is coming is something even better.

So, say someone wants to do a full mod of Dark Forces II on Jedi Academy, one that's actually being worked on, not the one from shamusworld that hasn't been updated in 3 years, would you allow your work to be implemented into said mod?

hey im new here, you know i king of wanted to do a mod that is a lot simmilar to this, just have all the jedi knight duels ever, like kyle vs desann, or jaden vs kyle, with still the option of choosing your character, just an idea for you, you can do what you like. I was wondering how far you actually are in the completion of this mod because this mod has really intrigued me to start making mods myself and getting together a team for it, i know good c++ programmers although never modded or programmed before so im new to this thing. I just wanted to know your progress because there's no other way of finding out but asking you because the last update on the df2 duels site is sometime in 2009

Download Maw - The Revenge, there should be a folder and a .bat file in the .rar file, extract it to your GameData folder, execute the .bat file, open the console, type in the console "map Tower_Kyle_v2". You'll be playing as Kyle Katarn against the Dark Jedi Maw, in a remake of the duel in Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2.

This mod won't die, don't worry. The mapper Ltfuller is working in the maps.
And, what I'm going to say may be irrelevant, but I'll say it anyway. I'm a communist, I think in the others more than myself (lol).

It's dying. I PM'ed Fixer many times and he still has not answered. If I don't find a mapper, any chance of a Jedi Knight Revival will be lost.

Yes... That's the worst part about it. It resembles another problem, I PM'ed Darth Phae once asking about a DF2/MOTS hud he had. He logged on to his FileFront account many times since then, but he never answered.
