I'm playing SP more than MP, so this applys to SP...

Ok, so im fighting Reborn, Cultists etc, But when in a saber fight i have no saber locks at all, i use the G_saberrealistic code and set it to 3, is that whats causing me not to have saber locks ?

In JO with that code set to 3 i used to have saber locks all the time, and it was great fun trying to get my opponent on the floor, but in JA i cant seem to do it....

Anyone have a soloution......?

I agree with you totally, I loved having saber locks in Jedi Outcast on Multiplayer and Single Player ecspecially but theres not a lot of it in Jedi Academy :mad:

i get em frequently. it's all by chance. you just have to hit your saber at him the same time he hits his saber at you.

saberlocks against MP bots are extremely unbalanced. It`s virtually impossible to win a saberlock against a MP bot no matter what skill level the bots are. Force Push only cancels a lock, unlike JO saberlocks.

Yah, whenever I get in one with a bot, it is almost instatanious(sp?) that they break it. :(

I also get that in SP unless my enemy is of significantly lower level than me (I've never won a saber lock against a red reborn).

Did you know that there was a guy with a saber lock breaking script, and when we got in a lock, he started it, so I just clicked really fast(my mouse can click FAST! my brother was amazed:)) and I actually won the lock! Everyone was really suprised. It was hilarious.:D

I Completely agree, the saber locks are like, gone. And any of them in single player arnt the button mashing scenes of tension that they used to be. Now theyre just instantaneous death either for you or the reborn.

Even in multiplayer they happen less frequently. Im a little saddened by this actually. Is there a console command where you can up the frequency of a sl happenin????

I've had saber locks rage on for a while in SP o.o in MP however... they do nothing.

To simple, just turn g_saberlockrandomness from 2 to 1.5 or 1 or something

i never was able to get that code to work but i agree, ive only had like two or three saberlocks in all my SP playtime and i only play SP. about the saber dismemberment thing, i don't think it makes a difference, but i don't turn it on 3, i put it on 2; because it makes the fights too short

I tend to get plenty of saberlocks, but I lose just about all of them no matter how hard I try. It really needs a bit of tweaking in that department, as losing a saber lock is pretty much instant death in SP and breaking it doesn't always work.

Actually, I find the MP bots to be very EASY to beat in a saber lock, could also be that with my constant saber locks in JO, I have a VERY VERY Quick trigger finger...



for almost constant saber locks, type this in the console

g_debugSaberLock 99 this makes it almost a 99% chance (no such thing as 100%) for a saber lock to occur, or close to it. Kudos to Mike Gummelt for this little CVAR:)

Winning a saberlock against a MP bot in JA is just blind luck, IMO!
