  1. A fond farewell to the Lucasarts Development team. I think it's apt that I post in the Classic gaming section as my favorites were all developed in the mid to late 90s. My favorite game will always be Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight. Granted it hasn't aged well but the level design is magnificent. Even today I still regard it as one of the best examples in gaming history. I think we should all share our fondest memories. Breathe some life into an otherwise quiet section of the forum
  2. Hi All. Here's some videos I made of all the secret areas in DF2.

  3. Excellent, glad the solution worked for you as well. I've been trying to solve the graphical issues in 7 but I can't get anywhere. I've attempted to run it with a wrapper to emulate older video hardware but it can never recognise it. I'm still working on it occasionally so if I find a solution I'll post it
  4. 1024x768 is 4:3 though? I'm still trying to figure out how to replace shadows and blaster marks. I also have occasional problems with background music stuttering. The only workaround so far is to pause the game and swap between Miles 2D audio and one other until it stops. I will post of I find better solutions, hopefully that will be the case!
  5. I'm torn between Raiders and Last Crusade.
  6. Infernal Machine is my favorite Indy game. I remember getting that plus Phantom Menace for my Christmas and spent the best part of the full year playing the games. The controls are a bit iffy and there are bugs a plenty however the story and level design is excellent. The fact I can, at 25, still enjoy a game that came out when I was 13 is a testament to how good it is!
  7. I think there is one fundamental problem and it relates to a suitable storyline for a new game - where does Kyle's story go next? The Jedi Knight brand was first and foremost the story of Kyle's rise from mercenary to Jedi Master. Although we took control of Jaden in JA, Kyle's role was still central to the plot. Now that Jaden has completed his training, where does Kyle fit in? Or does the story progress and become that of Jaden Korr? Don't get me wrong - I would love a new JK game. At the moment, however, the series has a whole host of mods, maps and the like that continue to keep things fresh. Although releases have slowed down dramatically (which after 8 years isn't a surprise) there is still enough interest in the games to keep them alive. I know I never tire of playing the games so that must be worth something. Who knows? Maybe Lucasarts are busy trying to figure out the perfect story so as not to tarnish the brand that so many know and love, just like 3D Realms did with Duke Forever. Wait a minute...
  8. Back in the day I used to use the 'Freebird' to fly over and explore it. I originally thought it was a rip off of another room design they shoved in there for the sake of having it. Never did look as if it should have been there..
  9. Yeah - I've tried everything to sort them but it seems impossible on Windows 7. To be fair I have a 'retro' system I occasionally used to run legacy games so running them on 7 wasn't originally a huge issue, however the hassle of constant cable swapping for the sake of a few games was getting to me. I'm going to try a glide wrapper, so hopefully that might help out with texture issues and the like. I've also got a voodoo 2 in the retro system so I could stick that in the 7 system and see how that goes. I'll post pictures if I have any success. It would be great if a program like VMWare supported 3D acceleration for operating systems pre-XP. It would solve a huge amount of problems!
  10. A few snaps of my favourite level. Bad idea to sit on quicksand:
  11. I loved Mos Espa - it always seemed like there was so much to do and so many ways to do it. I had a different experience every time I played it. I always remember Tomo's mother (the boy kidnapped by Captian Neg) sinking into the ground any time I spoke to her. TPM has legendary graphical glitches!
  12. Hi all. Maybe a bit of a late reply. It you get a reply saying the software is not designed for the OS it is most likely because your version of Win 7 is 64 bit. I stupidly overlooked this thread (duh) and have posted a workaround in the 'Having trouble getting TPM to work XP and Vista' thread. Worked perfectly for me, hope it does for anyone else with the same problem
  13. A late reply, nevertheless still a reply. You should only experience difficulties installing any of the games if your operating system is 64-bit. The installers are only 16-bit so will outright refuse to run. You could theoretically install the games on a 32-bit machine (either an older computer or a virtual machine on Windows 7) then move the files to your Windows 7 system and modify a registry file, however this could prove difficult! The other much easier option (and the option I eventually took) was to purchase the entire Jedi Knight series on Steam (no need to install and relatively cheap - I paid £14.99 for DF, DF2, MOTS, JO AND JA). There's a graphical glitch on 64-bit systems for Dark Forces II and MOTS however there is a simple workaround available on the Steam forums which works perfectly. SOTE is a nightmare to install and run. I've heard it's possible albeit incredibly difficult. Still, worth it to play it again!
  14. I hope this is relevant or at least helps some people out who are trying to run TPM on a new 64-bit operating system. First, install the game on a 32-bit OS [i installed Win 98 on VMWare Player]. When completed, copy the entire contents of the game directory to 'C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\The Phantom Menace' [Where C is your Windows hard drive] Copy the entire contents of the reg file below [including 'Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00] into Notepad and save file as Phantom.reg Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC\The Phantom Menace] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC\The Phantom Menace\v1.0] "Executable"="C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\The Phantom Menace\\WMAIN.EXE" "Install Path"="C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\The Phantom Menace" "Source Path"="Z:" "CD Path"="Z:" "Analyze Path"="Z:\INSTALL\SysCheck.exe" "Source Dir"="Z:" "InstallType"=dword:00000001 "JoystickID"="1" "SoundCard"="TRUE" Change 'Z' to whatever letter your CD-ROM drive is. Merge the file once saved (right click the file to bring up the option). You can now run TPM.exe Hope this helps (source: http://omnicoderdotnet.blogspot.com/2011/01/windows-98.html)
  15. I thought I would add to this, albeit a little late but still! Fired up this game again after learning how to get it running on Windows 7 x64. I forgot how much fun it was. A few graphical glitches here and there (as well as no fog) however hopefully a glide wrapper will sort that out. My favourite part of the whole game: 'Better stand back mister cause I'm about to slash... all my prices!'
  16. This thread seems to be dead... I would absolutely love Lucasarts to remake the dark forces / Jedi Knight series. My personal favourite was Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight (and the Mysteries of the Sith expansion). Two games I can still play all the way through today without noticing how dated it looks - a testiment to the excellent level design and gameplay. Do it!
