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.

I love the lightsaber blades in the demo! What did you use to modify the blades?

I didn't do it. I guess Fixer put it there.

He did a good job with the blades, also, Light Side Kyle should have Yun's lightsaber, because in the game Kyle gets Yun's lightsaber a few levels after choosing the light side.

I think it wasn't Fixer who did the blades, still. I'll ask him.
About the light side Kyle: Katarn chooses his true path after he defeats Maw. Jerec and his Dark Jedi capture Jan. There he can either deactivate his lightsaber or strike at Jan with his lightsaber (actually, it's Rahn's). Jerec uses Force Destruction and Kyle goes on the the Falling Ship (Sulon Star) level, or the Into the Dark Side level. After escaping the Sulon Star, the Moldy Crow either crashes or lands safely in the Jedi Battleground. If it crashes, Yun, Boc and Sariss are there. Boc destroys Kyle's lightsaber and goes into a shuttle to the Valley. Sariss is about to kill the inconscious Kyle when Yun blocks the attack and is killed in his place. Then Katarn gets Yun's lightsaber and duels Sariss.
However, in the Dark Side path, Kyle lands the Moldy Crow in the Battleground and duels Yun with Rahn's lightsaber.

Yeah, another demo. I finished the menus, now Fixer needs to send me the maps and I'll incorporate them to the UI.
Also, the menu will be simple, don't expect to see map screenshots or icons. Only text.

Sweet :) Will Jerec and Dark Kyle have Force Destruction?

Jerec will, but probably Dark Kyle won't. I'll ask Fixer. It's a bit of a complex system. There are invisible, non-solid balls that only Jerec can Force Push. When it hits, it explodes, doing damage. It' something like that.

Shouldn't focus too much on popularity, you should focus on making the mod great! Besides, 555(Your current rank) is a cool number ;)
