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.

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.

I hope to release 0.5 in August, however, a video will be released before that.

I have an idea for one of the bonus duels, how about Jedi Grandmaster Luke vs Emperor Kyle? It could take place in the throne room, after Saris leaves to eliminate the rebel uprising and Kyle becomes Emperor.

There will be a Emperor Katarn against Skywalker and Mara Jade. Didn't you read it?

Oops, that bonus somehow slipped my mind, sorry about that.

It wasn't meant to come out February this year. So if you want it to come soon, why don't you stop acting like a child and come on to a modding team? You'll see why it wasn't released in February.

He doesn't seem to realize how difficult making a mod is, I don't have any experience making mods, but I can tell it's no walk in the park, making a great mod takes time, especially a mod as great as this one.
