Release December? Huh? Isn't that the date of the release of SW7 ? lol
Well, it's a pretty smart move in the end since after the movie ppl will want to play anything SW related :)

Matt, I want to play the EoC III remastered while this mod isn't released. Just wondering if I need both Jedi Academy and Outcast or with Academy is just fine.

Aswell, I wanted to give you my congrats for keeping on with the work started by Serenity. I am pretty sure you will have done a good job.

I'm actually still working with Serenity. He's doing all the game coding and I'm working on things like the menus as well as doing all the promotion.

To play EoCIII you can just play Jedi Academy, it will work absolutely fine!

Look out for EoCIII Remastered, it's an updated version of EoCIII that seems to be the best out there.

I know, I know, I am looking forward to play it. Currently downloading, but still 2 hours till is finished.

So I wanted to know something. It is about the lightsaberstyles in the game. I was wondering if you will feature the 7 lightsabers forms in this 4th version of EoV. I mean, featuring them by their name, with custom animations for each one and deeper difference between them, and be more like the movies. I know it is a big deal, but it would be amazing to fight as count dooku does, or yoda's.

Aswell, I had another question. It is mblock still made with keyboard, or have you made it to work with mouse. Cause it would be more instinctive to just move the mouse towards the place you want to mblock. Faster block, ya know, and does not depend on where are you walking to. It would be a very nice option ^^

I'll be uploading a video about the new class system hopefully this weekend so I won't say too much now but to put it simply EoCIV no longer allows users to choose their saberstyles, force points, etc.

Now it's totally movie-realistic so each class has assigned force points, saber styles, etc. You choose a class and get everything that character would have in the films and not the ability to change styles to not fit the character.

Manual block can be assigned too so if you have a mouse with multiple buttons and you want to assign one to block you can. There's also improved features on the roundhouse kick that you can assign, but that will probably be in a new video about the new animations :)

So, I have tried the previous version of this mod, the EoC III Remastered. The gameplays feels incredible smooth, and damn, you are a badass jedi/sith. However, I am having problems. I explain better.

When trying to launch from mp through mods-->load mods, it starts charging but inmediately crashes. The application stopped working, Windows couldn't find a solution bla bla bla. So I can play the game FROM the SP, but I can not save the game, so, each time I die, I have to charge the whole thing again.

So I would be glad If you knew why I am having this problem not crashing for the mp. Aswell, if you don't have idea, at least a way of saving or respawining myself in the sp part of the mod. I don't want to having to start a mission each time I die, and in fact I would like to play something where I spawn easy.

Ty in advance & keep the good work. This is one not of the best mods, but of the best game swords, I have ever played. Simply beautiful, intuitive and solid. You play this game and you are not thinking in the SP bar, you just act at how your jedi reacts, how much are you being pulled back by the furious hit of your rival, how great he is at blocking you... AND THEY ARE BOTS! And man, is so intuitive... I mean... YOU EASILY NOTICE, BY THE ANIMATIONS, WHEN YOU ARE LOOSING TERRAIN. You feel the real pace of the combat, plus I feel there are little tricks to break through enemies defense. One of the things I loved more was the fact that I was more worried by making my hit colide the enemy than random push buttons. Then when both our attacks colided each other, the pull back forces where realist. Perfect timed animations, I can asure you, this is what Lucas Arts should have done.

Damn, I love this mod, just give me the mp, I want to play non-stop. XD

I have a question about this mod, both the III version and the upcoming IV; Does it do anything in singleplayer? I couldn't find a definitive answer on either page and its a bit of a big download on my internet to just try and see blind. Thank you!

Sorry for the late response but yes, Evolution of Combat IV is a mod for singleplayer and multiplayer.
