this bug is with the saber staff

turn it on
now turn it off
when its turning off, u can see that one of the blade passes thru jaden's body.

HOW COULD LUCASARTS/RAVENSOFT MISS THIS BUG?!

and HONESTLY, did anyone else notice this??

You shouldn't expect perfection from anything.

uh....... Clipping issue, man, calm down. Happens all the time in games, also not noticing or caring has nothing to do with being a noob... or calling someone a noob as an insult like you did.

Lets try and keep the discussion civil, shall we?

And just an FYI...this topic has already been dicussed in other threads. Clipping problems are unfortunately inherent in the Q3 engine - and Raven have done their best to try and fix it this time around. Even so...there are still some clipping issues, but I'm pretty sure they can't fix them all, or they would have done so.

Anyway...there's no need to insult other members here. :tsk:

u pathetic n00b. Actually, it sounds like you are the relative newb to gaming. The above is spoken like someone who hasn't grown up in the early gaming era where characters where made up of about 16 pixels and everything was in 2D. You actually had to use your imagination. You would also know that you can never expect the perfect game. In something as complex as JA you will always have little glitches and clipping errors, and these minor things are not worth getting in a tizzy about.

And flaming someone for saying "take it easy" makes you come off as some immature teenager. Relax and be happy to be able to play a great game like JA :)

there are perfect games out there?
well ill be damned!

my idea of a perfect game is one thats fun
and if this one is even better than the last then thats all the perfection i need

i dont know why you had to to say that to TiBo either
just cause ppl dont agree with you doesnt mean you should insult them like that...cause youd have ALOT of insulting to do

Your whole life? Those most be some mad skills you had as a two year old.

...of course, now that you're 11 they've probably improved a great deal. Of course, that's mean of me. Probably you're just a teenager like previously guessed. Its ok, you'll grow out of it.

A game can't be "perfect" as you put it. Every game will have flaws.

Yeah, you're not alone. I noticed it the first time I closed down the staff. After sewing my arm back on, I found the following work-around:

Shut off the bottom half of the saber first (saber stance button), then close the top (saber select button). And there ya go. No clipping.

You could probably script a bind to do it for you, too. I've gotten so used to it, it's second nature to me.

So if you're REALLY bothered by it that much, use this technique until a mod is done for the full version of the game.

A little too late for that, wouldnt you say StormHammer?

Anyways, as for the topic. No I havent noticed that, but then again, I hardly use the saberstaff so its of no real concern here. But starting to get mad over it, just isnt worth it. All games comes with small glitches, clipping errors etc, and they tend to get fixed in future patches or mods. Lets hope that we dont get overbombed by mods and stuff for JA. It became to much last time :(.

This really isn't that big an issue, I mean, is one little clipping bug REALLY going to ruin the game experiance so much that you can't player it anymore?

Didn't think so.

I noticed it as well. But the question to ask is does a little clipping error really matter in the long run. Disappointing but not consequential.

You can't expect JA to be a "no-bug" game......

All games will have some bugs.

Methinks this clipping issue will not be in MP... At least if they use the "animation" from JO when you extinguish your saber. Or just turn it off when you use it in medium stance like Wes (and a whole lot more before him :p ) suggested.

Geez, you should try playing J-Bird or Sopwith or some other old eraly 90's/late 80's game, divide the pixel number by 10 and you get a game with which many older (well, relatively anyway) grew up with.

Hey! Don't get pissed! I'm only fifteen and I know nooothing :p

I don't know any game without it. As long as games use bounding boxes for collision detection, there will be clipping issues...

When the game is relesed, wait for a patch, they might fix it.:)

Its not that they dont care because they do, its just VERY VERY hard to make a game without having clipping issues. Its like trying to make a game in which any computer made after 1999 could run.. Its nearly impossible to do. There are just soo many factors, plus the timetable that was given to Raven, which still impresses me on how much they got into the game according to the previews/reviews/interviews and screenshots, and with the demo as first-hand experience to show off just the tip of the iceberg of what Raven has accomplished.
