A chat? I wasn't aware of any chat... : )



EDIT: Stormhammer's post has just reminded me. Can someone make a copy of the transcipt and post it before LEC add it to their list.

It always takes them ages and I dont want to wait for another day.

Thanks for the reminder WebJedi. ;)

Although I'm not sure I'm going to be able to keep awake until 2-3am to take part. We're about 8 hours behind PST in the UK. :(

Hopefully we'll have another transcript of the event? :D

11-19-2001, 07:38 PM
Yeh have a transcript and cna someone ask if is it zone or dedicated or both

11-19-2001, 07:55 PM
In order to have the transcropt before LEC does someone would have to constantly print screen to capture the questions and answers, or type them out as it happens... neither of which I'm willing to do, sorry. :(

Thanks for the chat, LEC. =)

Thank you. Can you ask if saberfighting from 1st person POV is still possible?

Anyone noticed this is VERY important for me? :D I'd like to play the whole game from 1st person POV...

There's going to be rumble in the Bronx to- night. :D

I'm not going to be able to attend. I'll be out in the wilderness facing slugs and leeches and ticks....

So put in some doozy questions for me. I'll be back in 39 hours and 20 minutes...... from this post.

OH NO! I won' be able to make it. EXAMS in a week and I have a study group.
1. Can you elaborate on saber control?.
2.What are the mimimum req. for JK2?.
3.Would there be a kind of SP level editor?.
4.Would we be playing any oyther jedi?.

Well that it I hope that someone will be greatful enough to answer them for me. :)

/me tries to make it but is assured that a decent sized CTFer presence will be available. Be prepared LEC...muhahaha. ;)

It's kinda late for me too, so someone please ask about the 3rd person :). We can already see there's a crosshair in the new screenshots that are in 3rd person. I want to know how similar it will be to Heretic II, in relation to movement, controls, configuration, options, etc.

I'm dying to know because as much as I loved Elite Force, my favorite game is still Heretic II. I'm hoping that JKIIs 3rd person is not just going to be the chasecam cg_thirdperson 1 command from Elite Force. I'm hoping that JK2 will feel & be controlled like Heretic II. Will the movement feel like Heretic II? Will JK2 even let players climb onto ledges? When I meant about configuring the 3rd person was, will there be camera options like camera stiffness and how far away the camera is from the player? Also will there be a lookaround command that lets us hold the tab key, move the mouse around to move the camera around the player, instead of using some config file to use the numberpad.

Also what kind of skins & models are we gonna see in multiplayer? Can we pick the color of our lightsaber in multiplayer?

just to clerify, we go to the chat link on the main page and then enter what chat room for the session??

Getting into a chat room is automatic. I kinda hoped that we get to pick wich ones.

I'll try to make it as long as the web page is up.

11-20-2001, 07:46 PM
Well, the chat starts at 2am and I have to get up for work at 5:50am tomorrow morning. Will I be there? Of course: you have to get your priorities straight in life! :D

11-20-2001, 10:54 PM
Bump. Opens in a few, hope to see you guys there. I'll be Canoli, of course. =)

11-20-2001, 11:25 PM
Im going to the chat now
cya there

Well, i would join in if the LucasArts website wasn't such banta fodder... couldn't even connect to www.lucasarts.com (http://www.lucasarts.com) for the first 10 minutes, now I've been sitting here for 10 minutes while it hasn't let me on to the chat page from the main page... their website seems very flaky, I recall when the JK2 website launched, it was down more than up... *sigh*... does not bode well.

11-21-2001, 12:32 AM
i know whatcha mean..

the LEC website has yet to work for me today :\
