  1. ok I know this one is off topic but where else to get JEDI KNIGHT player opinions on another game. who has played star wars galaxy from since its inception and still plays it? Who has picked it up recently with all the new stuff like jump to lightspeed and the fact that you can choose to be either republic or empire now.... is the combat like kotor? im interested in playing it but only if its worth the payment a month..
  2. I'd rather play an rpg like story ala kotor with FPS/3rd person mechanics... instead of kotor's combat. Like how deus ex did it. deus ex was an RPG, but played from first person, and it had alot of content/dialogue and a good story, but the action was directly controlled by you. I wish i could jump in kotor heh...its annoying running everywhere so slowly. They made kotor 2 but what says they are focusing on the kotor series? is there a 3rd one in the making that you are saying this?
  3. why no more Jedi Knight games? Do they not sell well? did they not sell well? I'd like to see a new game with todays graphics/sounds more animations etc.... with a good story it'd be cool...
  4. you need to get with the times son. don't whine because you have a 5 year old pentium 450 or some crap. people buying computers these days are not going to buy much less than at least 2.2ghz so you can raise the sys requirements, then people like you can either keep playing duke nukem, or you can upgrade. when cd roms first came out and games for cd roms first released like wing commander, wing commander 3 sold millions of copies. Geist sold millions of copies...and cd rom drives were brand new.
  5. i thought no one was replying to this anymore. i stopped gettin email notes. now i know why, someone in their wisdom decided to alter the topic. anyhow, anyone having played galaxies and kotor, which combat system is more fun? or are they just very very similar with only minor nuances different?
  6. im getting kotor , is it really must play or is watching close up of characters talkingnot really that fun...
  7. everquest is a fairly old engine now isnt it...
  8. come on seriously.....i have not played it, i have only seen screenshots and this jedi video thing. i have not really even read about it or followed it. im not interested in paying 15 a month to play this game. so i know nothing of it...so my above question still applies...
  9. bump the sys requirements up to 1.7 ghz and done, who has <700 mghz anymore? that is turn based? i thought all combat in sw galaxies was real time? well heck, who knows then...but i think some braniac developer could do a better system of fps dueling for jedi knight series. that combat if it is turn based looks even better than the one in kotor...the one in kotor, seen on videos didn't look as fluid to me, it looked near as twitchy and sudden as i was talking about.
  10. did anyone see the video of jedis dueling in galaxy???? it looks awesome, the collision detection is so much better...it looks as if light sabers are actually...hitting. much better engine than the aging quake 3 engine. i wonder if another incarnation of jedi knight is to be released if it will use the doom 3 engine and if they will make for more things possible. how the players moved looked fluid too. i find in jedi knight the character tends to make fast twitches ...but they have this engine modelled to reflect the physics of swinging and weight and stuff.
  11. thats what made deus ex so good. it was rpg roots played with first person controls. i would have loved a game like Kotor which gave you the direct control over your character like in Jedi Knight series...
  12. also dye you say you seem to get killed in one off hits. if you'll notice, both in JO and JA there are certain times when the two sabers connect that yours or the other fellows its thrown aside,,, or way off into the air from the force of the blow....and this leaves you open, imagine a guy with two sabers, the first making you parry in what i described above and then while open the second one comes in a split second later. i believe this could be responsible for your premature dying as I too have noticed this. on a last note, i find it much easier to fight multiple of the most elite jedi in the game at once with them using staff or dual sabers, then i do when they use single sabers. i also find it easy to just saber throw a staff saber wielder to death....they dont find it so easy to block when throwing at their feet.
  13. since Ive been here I like spider AL. he seems respectfull and intelligent most of the time, im not sure why he has chosen to be so sarcastic as far as this discussion goes.. but anyway, i think the problem is not that the single saber is nerfed in any way...but just as was stated, that it is easier to just click fest with a dual or saber staff because of all the spinning, and with 2 blades in each case, it has a longer reach in terms of strike distance, and a double effect. where as one blade might miss, the other one is going to come around soon and hit. i said that to say that these sabers just make things easier for a player, especially a new player or old players who still are not that good with a single saber. therefore they go with the easy solution of the dual and staff. you just have to be really skilled with the single to compete with them, and realise they have two and you have one...and fight to suit accrobatics and out manouvering have a lot to play. remember your not just trying to swing your side at them from the front expecting you'll get a hit or a damaging hit and expect to win... your point is to move to the side, and slash where there saber is not, and the next best thing is it will only be partially deflected. it seems to me like you wish you could just use the single saber and swing and hit. no matter where you swing, if you go head on slashing away...but remember what i said above...you'll always lose in that circumstance. if you want to be traditional like me...and i use the single...then dont just press the left mouse button while moving into an enemy. the only disadvantage it has is one blade. however, if raven find something they think they can do with any mechanic of it...i leave that to them
  14. ok let me see if I can explain this well. In the demo when you do the mission which has the dark jedi in it, where you stop them stealing force power from a jedi tomb. Your character has level 3 of the core powers... push, pull, saber offense and defense. ok now in choosing my character I choose one which uses the strong style. When I get to the game, I press L and it switches to blue, then when I press L again, it flicks to yellow very briefly and back to and stays on blue. it won't go through the styles... in choosing the strong style, was it supposed to be able to use strong only and not be able to switch? now I chose strong style and did the other mission with chewie, it stays on strong style and cant be switched to light or medium. all well and good. so I setforceall 3. And I switch, I press L once, and my stance changes to the yellow stance but it still shows the bar as red for the saber stance in the force meter window. and when I swing the saber in this weird mode, (showing red stance selected, but your hilt is by your side like medium stance) anyhow when i swing the saber, it swings like a fast red stance, and a slow yellow. meaning it swings faster than how strong how would swing, but slower than yellow would go. and I am unable to switch between blue yellow and strong....is it possible to do this once you have learned all three styles in the full game? if so why is it that you pick a style to start with? or do you start with a default style in the full game? also when this weird stuff is happening, and I set forceall to 3, the blue stance swings the same fast way but it swings slightly different than normal. are these quirks in the full game? everything in the demo works fine when i choose the stance, the stance speeds match those of JO in that case...but when it comes to switching and switching back.
  15. someone has been playing splinter cell? personally id like a game with the engine or same gameplay mechanics of jedi knight but with a long involved galaxy hoping story line along the lines of the globe hopping story line in Deus Ex... i dont like games like final fantasy anymore so KOTOR wont do.
  16. are ya'll refering to the full game only? i found with the demo i had 25 fps. on a radeon 9000 in my laptop. i then went to my d3d settings in display and turned down the texture rendering by a notch back towards performance rather than quality and turned it back up and my frames went back normal 90 fps.. and 50 or 60 with activity on the screen. but i guess you mean the full game.
  17. you whiners who talk about skill and what not are sad and pathetic. you sound like 8 year old kids outside in the dirt pitching marbles. if you do not like the game do not play it. return it... to say that they dumbed down this or dumbed down that.....is nonsense...the game plays almost like jedi outcast... I can't believe you would waste time saying that nonsense. No one would make a game they didn't think people would like. they make the game the way they think the majority will like it.
  18. you know how your character automatically swirls the saber in the left hand when using dual sabers? like when he's spinning he actually twirls the saber so it spins in his hand so the blade spins, why when you are using one saber can he not twirl it too, i find it seems to help in the attack to make it more effective. do you think that dual sabers helps you take on multiple light saber enemies in terms of defending from each of their multiple sword swings? also, while playing the demo in the jedi battling level, i ran from the beginning to the end to bring all the jedi chasing me. so i would fight like about 5 at a time........any advice for fighting 5 of those tough sith guys? or is the only good advice not so many at one time? im sure a real pro at this saber thing could take on all 5 easily knowing what to do, to never die, but i die alot heh... especially since they use so much force, i think i would do better if it was just saber vs saber.
  19. you think? or sure? heh well...I guess this would make the single saber not obselete then eh? heh
  20. you guys, before I would get depressed about the 100 or so people who come here and spam saying they dont like the game or its trash, I would remind myself they still bought it and play it. and I would also remind myself of the probably over 1 million in sales of all the titles thus far...and certainly over 250,000 for JO, and probably for JA....and all the 95 percent of them who love it. the naysayers are such a small group.
  21. now that you can have dual light sabers and the saber staff which one will you use? and which do you prefer? I generally prefer the more standard style...cause im old school. but I like the others as well. They are fun and cool. I actually think I fight better with the staff and the dual sabers...Im not saying they are better than a single one or that I will always beat a player who is using a single one...but I think its advantageous for these reasons. both the dual and the staff have two sides, so one swing counts practically as two, so fighting on medium stance which is fairly strong, its going as fast as fighting with a single blade on fast stance. also twice the damage if both blades hit. so more spin moves factor into using the dual and the staff which wears down an enemies defences and more often you get a good hit. I can dispatch the sith guys, the ones in the red and white armour, one on one fast with the dual or the staff because i just hit em so hard and so fast, it works out in my favour. I also find it easier to fight 3 of those guys at a time with the dual than with the single blade. can throw and still have a blade....and the way the jedi twirls that blade i his hand when he has two makes effective hits. they seem to have an awful lot of power though. Because when you hit the other jedi enemies you find in the demo besides the ones in the red and white armour and you hit them with a good full through the body swing they die, but not the sith they take so long. the thing with fighting 3 of them at the time, my problem isnt really using a single sabre... but the amount of force on force fighting and battling involved. when you look at it, together they have 300 percent health, plus each has strong armour by the time your are wearing them down, with all the lightening and grabs and drain they use on you (3 of em) your 100 power makes a slow decline to 0. so the longer the fight lasts the worse for you. but if it was just sabre dueling they wouldnt be as much as a prob to me as they are... and since i am not really using any force absorb or anything like that its more of a problem. but i still prefer the single blade.......what do you think?
  22. hey, I notice the animations are a bit different than they were in JO. now in JA your character swings his saber a little more and moves a little more when deflecting shots with the saber. almost like how the jedi's in the movie bat away shots like they are playing baseball which I think is cool and somewhat funny. in JO once you reached level 3 saber defense you could block endless amount of blaster shots from endless amount of enemy in front you. in the demo, playing the level where your core force abilities have been maxed out...(the jedi in a tomb level) your saber defense is at level 3, but i found that one guy shooting at you with a blaster from any distance, some of the shots get through..... is this right? is this a quirk...is the force level reading wrong for that level?? is this how it should be now for JA? i know hes a student but he does increase in skill, and in this particular demo level as i have said he has saber d as 3....whats up with this?
  23. the force speed dodge works if you press AND hold the use key. with your sabre on, someone shooting at you, it will use force speed and dodge it automatic, you wouldnt need to press anything besides the use key. but it uses force fast
  24. on the map where you have force speed 3...the one where you fight all the sith guys...i use jedi knight difficulty...you have to have the sabre on for it to work. if you have the sabre off and you push and hold the use key it wont do the force speed dodge, turn on your light sabre face the enemy, shooting blaster or whatever, then hold your use key and do nothing else(press nothing else), it'll force dodge, good for dodging a sniper...if you see him. but you quickly run out of force power, in like 4 dodges or so.
  25. Hey I started the Jedi Knight series from outcast...can't say anthing about the other games besides that one. But I love how they have improved the acrobatics in Jedi Academy. When I was fighting a guy last night he knocked me down and immediately went to do a death from above move, and i barely got out the way using the roll while on the ground, i thought it was cool. it made it an exciting fight. i also like how you can kick back up and stuff...and all the other moves...but that just one of the cool factors here heh.
