Sorry if I steal thunder from the site owners, but my latest F5 just popped this up


... I haven't even read it yet.


02-04-2002, 03:54 PM
Thanks for that :).........I enjoyed reading it.....someone better add it to the news page :)

Just noticed a couple of things:

- confirm no blood (good, I can show my kids ... unlike RtCW ;-)

- NO editor *shipped* ... available post-release.


02-04-2002, 04:06 PM
Thanks for the info...

Hey, that was quick updating of the site :)

02-04-2002, 04:41 PM
hey guys. i hope you enjoyed it :)

02-04-2002, 04:44 PM

<marquee>IT WAS GREAT</marquee>

And now look how you turned out... :p

02-04-2002, 04:49 PM
I don't recall seeing Boba Fett in multiplayer, no.
That would have been fun... :(

You haven't lived until you've seen a Storm trooper rounding the corner with light saber in hand. Scary.

With the vast array of saber attacks, defenses, acrobatics and special features (backstabs, flip-attacks, saber-locking, etc.), I have to say that this game has the most movie-like light saber battles outside of the movies themselves.
I hadn't seen the backstab (:D) thing before... this game is quite simply going to ROCK!!!

20. What do you think the best feature of Jedi Knight II is?
The light saber and everything that goes along with it.

One word: Perfect! :D :D

<marquee>Raven are the absolute best devs out there - I wish you weren't leaving, MRJ :(</marquee>

The group has an overall morale that affects many aspects of both their individual AI (aim, whether to flee, etc.) and the group behavior (whether to advance, outflank or fall back). It's a difficult process because, if you make them too smart, they don't really seem like Storm troopers anymore.


02-04-2002, 05:03 PM
Boba Fett was the mandalor in MP? am i wrong?
I palyed doom when i was =p

02-04-2002, 05:06 PM
Good, theres no blood, but my mom won't like me playing it still.:(


02-04-2002, 05:18 PM
Yeah, another good interview, but as we draw closer to the end, not much new info that we wouldn't have heard already. At least finally we can leave those blood/editing-or-not discussions to rest. As a matter of fact I think we have already gone through ALL possible topics from clothes to music(okey, I have been keeping those threads alive, sorry ;)), so now we are simply recycling old topics again and again until actual game comes out. And after that? We either praise Raven for making so wonderful game OR wonder what went possibly wrong(and I do have a feeling that there will always be someone who thinks he/she was let down)... :rolleyes:

02-04-2002, 05:24 PM
hey, yeah wacky..i was alittle dissapointed when i read the boba fett thing...he was the only medel i used in jk but o well. im sure a fan made model will spring up soon after the release

02-04-2002, 06:41 PM
'Mod's', it that another word for: Editing.

02-04-2002, 06:48 PM
Yes nykel007. MODs is short for modification.

And a little blood never hurt anybody ;). Remember SOF, that had a little blood in it :D.

that depends on what version of SOF you have... theres one version that was edited

02-04-2002, 07:10 PM
No I have the good version :D.

The coolest part about that game was shooting a guys leg off and watch him limp around till he died, very nice.

02-04-2002, 07:11 PM
Spiffy. Looking forward to editing and mods.

Another good read; I was particularly interested in the multiple body forms for the characters; sounds excellent. I cant wait to read tomorrow's interview by our own inhouse administrators!

02-04-2002, 11:29 PM
Looks like Raven and LA are sticking with the intial March release as opposed to the various April releases, good to hear.:)

I dont want to get anybody's panties in a bind...but uhmm....many of the anwers...not all of them....seem to have been taken directly out of the "Jedi Knotes" and various interviews....seems a bit weird to me...

I was dissapointed to see that they ONLY said they the release date was March 2002. When I saw the link saying release date I was saying "YES, Finally! Only to be dissapointed.

What is so dissapointing about that? :confused:

March isnt that far away you know.
Well unless you live on the moon or something...yes it could take a while getting stuff up there. :rolleyes: :D

02-05-2002, 12:13 PM
Although it's appreciated, I have to agree with SarcasticSaint. Almost the whole interview was stuff that we already knew. It could have been done in 3 or 4 questions because that's all the new info we received.

It really had a lot to do with the questions asked. Most of them were q's that we had the answer to months ago.

Hopefully JK2.net's interview doesn't make the same mistake.:(

02-05-2002, 01:30 PM
I think the "no-blood" decision was a good idea in that this is Star Wars and even though there was little blood in the movies, it wasn't the main focal point, it shouldn't be in the game either.

Or another word for annoying little people who patrol the forums :)

02-05-2002, 04:30 PM
very funny..........:D

02-05-2002, 05:35 PM
The blood makes sense because these aren't bullets ya know? I mean a blaster shot it's like a laser it burns everything like a lightsaber so it doesn't bleed it makes perfect sense to me plus I can have blood in games I'm 14, but it's kinda dumb unless it's like RtcW or MoH:AA it's not a war game, it's just Star Wars(the coolest thing ever indeed) :D

02-05-2002, 05:41 PM
yeah i agree, i mean blood isnt the main thing im going to be looking for when im playing. so its not a big deal that its not in the game. i cant wait tho...jk2 will own all

02-05-2002, 07:20 PM
can someone give me a link to the site becuase the link at the news page is broken:monkey4:
