No offence,but nobody would release a demo SO early.
If they really did,then it should be cool...

actually there have been games with demos released a month or two before the official release and i think RTCW was one of them so im thinkin we might get a demo in like i dunno maybe 2-4 weeks at the least

If LucasArts has any hand in this, and they will, then we won't see a demo until at least one week before the game is released.

If a demo will be release, how many mb`s will it have over 100 mb`s?

CaptainRAVE
02-09-2002, 11:46 AM
It will probably be about 100Mbs :D....all the recent demos have been about that

Wasn't the GB demo released 1-2 MONTHS before it went gold?

CaptainRAVE

I dont know. But that happened with JK. A demo was released, but then the game was delayed so the demo appeared to come out very early :)

I assume you mean at most one week before? As in it won't be released before that?

I hope it's not 100 MB. That would take me forever to download. The most I will tolerate is 40MB. No one needs 100 MB (zipped) of a demo. But I want to say that the demo for Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine came out about a month before the game came out (I could be wrong though). But you never know. All I have to say is the sooner the better.

Looking at MOHAA which is also quake 3 engine based, it was 140 i think, maybe a bit more


Dan, you GOTTA download it, it's Jedi Knight 2 dude! Cant miss that! must must must! hehe or get a download program and dow it in pieces, you know, 40 megs at a time?

you cant NOT get the JK2 demo, especially if it comes out a bit before the game does and / or the level isnt in the final game

Dan12R
02-09-2002, 03:58 PM
I might do that. Didn't think of it. I've got Real Download and I think I can do that with it. I'll have to try. If I succeed, be sure to see me on-line playing with my sloooooooow internet connection. I don't want to miss all the fun of on-line play (if the demo comes with MP. Which I'm sure it will).

TUS_Tomcat
02-09-2002, 05:49 PM
make it 200 mb then


lol no i dont know

but i think its a good bet itll be 100 megs plus

Isn't it crazy that demos are thirty times bigger than full version games used to be? Thats how it goes though.

Maybe we'll get a demo when JKII goes gold. *shrug*

I don't know. The largest DEMO I've ever heard of was about 230 megs, but I forgot the title of the game though.*Silentnc shrugs*

Ki-Adi-Mundi
02-09-2002, 07:33 PM
The Beta Version of Force Commander was released like the night before FC was officially released. It was 514 megs. And people played it too. You could have called that the demo. *shrug*

Well the GB demo was released a month or two before the game, but the demo didn't do the game justice either, but we might get lucky and get a demo in a few weeks.:)

I WANT A DEMO!!! Just because I HAVE to know if it will run on my computer...X_x

Or at LEAST minimum system requirements.

Silent_One
02-09-2002, 09:19 PM
A demo would be nice. I'd like to know if my comp runs JO too.

I just hope the map they release for MP in the demo will be a good one unlike Bespin for JK

If you look at RTCW the demo is has one of the best maps in the game.

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

i thought lucasarts just released it really early ;)

A 120 meg demo is three times as big as one of my harddrives used to be on my 386 lol

Yes it should be an option with those who have enough ram

CaptainRAVE
02-10-2002, 04:09 AM
It is most likely that it will be. Game developers have to meet a wide range of PC requirements these days, which is why there are now so many options and configurations :).......as long as they've got a maximum button to press then I'll be happy :D

Redwing
02-10-2002, 04:10 AM
Uhhh..... what??

CaptainRAVE
02-10-2002, 04:46 AM
Well I want a maximum button on the options menu so I can just press that instead of having to put all the sliders and options to maximum. It'll save time and allow me to get into the game quicker :p

02-10-2002, 04:49 AM
Demo will be great !
I think it will be some 100mb + Multiplayer addon like 30mb

Naphtali
02-10-2002, 04:49 AM
I meant to say that in the disappeering thread.

Well about the demo, it wold't make sense to release really since the real thing is only next month

CaptainRAVE
02-10-2002, 05:40 AM
Do you think there will be a multiplayer demo......and if so do you think it will be seperate??

Kurgan
02-10-2002, 06:47 AM
My guess is within 2 weeks of the full game's release. Placing bets....

And I disagree, Bespin was a great level.. although one deathmatch map is hard to base the whole game on (but when you have only 9 maps, I guess it's being generous). I hope the demo gives us a feel for the full game (besides those of us who will buy the full game regardless) but doesn't give away too much (ideally it would be a small mission that does NOT appear in the full game, but features elements that would appear, sort of a foreshadowing or foretaste....), much like Uplink, for Half Life.

CaptainRAVE
02-10-2002, 06:54 AM
I wish a Raven guy or someone would tell us if its going to be a mission from the full game, or a standalone mission........surely they can give that much away :).........and I would hope by now they would know whats going to be in the demo.

TUS_Tomcat
02-10-2002, 07:32 AM
I bet they already have the demo ready a week or so but are just sitting on it :)

And about a stand alone level, see my "What happens to the E3 level" post

I suggested the level they had on E3 to show off, is (in) the demo we get too, only based on the latest build of JK2 of course, not the build they had back then... Just that level

CaptainRAVE
02-10-2002, 07:51 AM
What about the weather effects they originally said would be included......like the snow in the E3 level that wasnt in place at the time but would be for the final version. Did they cut the weather effects out?? :confused:

The sooner the release of the demo the better because it's going to take me like 2 weeks to download it. That's not fun.

SkiggeBoy
02-10-2002, 12:50 PM
I think that the demo is about 140-160mb.
:newbie:

Buahahaa...I hope that demo is coming soon...
