Hello, my friend!
Just like DarylWise said, don't get discouraged. You have accomplished already so much and I am sure you will eventually find a solution to those problems!
Your disappointment is indeed my own.
I am sorry I could not provide the community with this because this was not only a mod pack, like some liked to dismiss it as, but contained my own, original material that will never be found anywhere now.
Despite my proof of good faith (I was told to provide screenshots which I did), the project was ostracized and boycotted by the Staff of Deadlystream.com where I used to host a couple of my released modifications too (both updated and improved in SW: KotOR Upgrade).
I cannot distribute the current file as "alpha" for testing purpose since it would still be against the "rules". I wish I could help you out, believe me. I have no personal interest whatsoever in this other than have people like you install a single mod and play the game in its best (at least, according to me) incarnation.
Thank you for your support.
No, that is not the issue.
The issue was that the Staff at Deadlystream.com required that modders that in the past accepted to have their material included in my own project should return in person and post in a topic (now cancelled) to CONFIRM that permission given me in the past.
It is an absurd request, mostly due to the fact that many have retired and are no longer possible to contact.
They asked me to provide screenshots of my emails where they agreed to it. I did that but then at that point they seemed to think "Sh*t... He did that too... What else can we do to make it really impossible?" and that was that.
A sad thing, really. Arbitrary and unfair. But I am a person of integrity and I don't want to start a war. I could be grateful for support but I don't think there is much that can be done at this point.
Thanks for your interest and sorry again.
Hello to anyone reading this space.
Due to the requirement made to me from the administration of a notable and thriving KotOR community, I find myself in a difficult position and may be forced to cancel this project altogether.
In short, I am asked to not include material from modders that are unable or unwilling to confirm the permission given to me in the past, which is a practically impossible task since many modders retired and a few could never be reached when I tried to, often several times, even in the past.
There are also some modifications that gave explicit permission in their read me file about using the included material. Even those seem to be hard sells.
At the moment I have more than 50% of the total content "green lighted" but I will refuse publishing a heavily compromised version which would no longer adhere to the standards of quality.
What does this mean? Things can still develop to a satisfactory result since the modders that refused to be part of this projects have only been two (one of which is also MIA, by the way). But I will need to have the Administrators approve of those contributions that, to their opinion but not certainly mine since I did gather the necessary permissions earlier, are in a "grey area".
I have always been nothing but respectful (being a modder myself) of the content created and shared by others. And I intend to have this out only if my reputation as modder and as person is not going to be tarnished by unfounded accusations.
I will keep interested people updated one way or another as soon as I can. The original release date set for April 2018 needed of course to be cancelled, to my regret. Everything is actually ready and in a playable state but now things are out of my hand, for the most part.
Thanks for your attention!
It has its own restored content, chosen among what I deemed worthy of restoration.
This modification may be compatible with others but there is no explicit guarantee that it will. There is a better chance for compatibility if the modification uses TSL Patcher for installation but even so it is not certain.
Thanks a lot!
I am wishing you great success with Jedi Outcast: Redemption. It does indeed sound what I have been looking for! ;)
I played both games and I believe Jedi Outcast to be the far superior game! Not a single doubt about it. So thanks for making the first game even better, JediRedemption!
I am sorry but I am not sure I understand what this modification is about (although it looks exciting): is it an upgrade to the single player game Jedi Outcast? Better textures and some refinements?
If everything goes as planned, a release is expected before the end of April 2018.
GMDX is one of those pearls that may be unknown to many, just like the original Deus Ex game was.
I consider myself lucky to have met both.
Thanks again to Warren Spector for his vision and to the GMDX's author for improving it beyond what I could have imagined.
If only animators were available to contribute, GMDX could have reached the top of the world. But then again, it's already done it.
It never crashed for me and I did play on full screen...
Great to see an update from you, ALT_OhDude!
I do hope the FPS mod will see the light of the day and, of course, the update to the great Ammo mod as well! The unreleased Beta version has been very reliable!
The problem here is that this is not done as a "hobby" anymore. People paid money for it. In advance. The fanboys should no longer use the abused "For christ's sake, these heroes are doing this in their spare time and sharing it for free, you ungrateful bastards!". Nor does the argument I often read: "Would you rather have a very buggy piece of software?" as if it was implied that to release some software that is not full of bugs it is normal to have a development date of many years. Come on, those are just lame kind of excuses. Said that, Black Mesa is a great game and I am still glad I've given my small financial contribution to support its development.
Look at the size of that thing!
Thanks for this new release!
It is great to see the progress and updates!
Excellent... Another piece done!
This mod seems very interesting but I would not want any added weapons to the game.
I know you can still drop it and not use it but I'd rather not ruin the atmosphere by doing that.
"If Crowbar Collective does fix the troubled parts of their game, then yes, we will immediately begin working on getting a Steam Workshop version of Hazard Course up. If they don't, we'll decide on a plan of action." - This was from the January 2016 update about the lack of compatibility between this modification and the Steam version of the game.
Now one year and three months passed since that update and I am wondering: have you decided on a plan of action?
I understand that anything Valve-related, including, it seems, any kind of modification made for Valve games is subject to Valve time but still... :)
I do hope you can come back to work on this too because it is a great, great idea and I would support it wholeheartedly!
Thanks for not abandoning this!
Didjay, the talented creator of Far Cry 2010, is a "she". I also hope she can return to this and complete it but honestly, the chances of it ever happening seem to be pretty slim.
I certainly hope that "swimming in ammo" was an exaggeration.
I wanted to point out that the "Into the Void" music is really nice even if I prefer the original Intro music. For others that also do that, it is a rather easy matter of replacing the appropriate .ogg file in the fourth soundtrack package with the original one.
Said that, I was wondering if you ever read the official bugs list for the UQMHD mod here: Code.google.com?
I take the opportunity to inform you that more alignment issues are present in the Menu.
there is a alignment issue in the graphics menu which I can show at this link: Picpaste.com
Has that to do with the chosen resolution?
first of all thanks for your work.
Second, since I am so so very fond of the original intro and end music, would it be an easy feat for me to just swap it back the way it was? Perhaps just some easy modification to a .txt file?
I do not mean to ask you to do anything yourself but rather help me out so that I can enjoy your work and still keep the music I like?
Thanks a lot!
I actually find it consistent. Not every box you break should have useful items in. I'd rather keep it that way.
