View Full Version : Screens: nobody cares...

Am I the only one waiting for at least one screen from 1st POV carrying the sabre? Every time new screens are announced I hope to find it but still nothing...

02-12-2002, 10:00 AM
I know!!!!! I wanna see a 1st person saber shot!!!!!!!! 3rd person sabering gets old!!!!!!

02-12-2002, 10:01 AM
I don't think that they are showing that screen because it doesn't show off the graphics like the 3rd person view does. But I agree I would like to see it too.

Hey guys, use the forc...uhmm, I mean your fantasy.....

Thanks for the complement SW, these are pretty good boards here, ne-ways, about the 1st person screen shot, doesn't the game automatically revert to 3rd person when you wield the saber? That is what I was thinking, but anyways, since most of the screens are in 3rd person view it leads me to believe that the programmers/playtesters like the 3rd person view better because it is probably more practical. I will test it out in 1st person (saber fighting), but I am sure it will be just a novelty as the 3rd person view is probably better for gaming.

is it just me or has almost all the screens lately been of kyle using force lightning on some storm troopers??? i say we get a few screens of some other force powers, like push or pull......something different, and a first person saber screen wouldnt be that bad, but sabering in 1st person isnt that great.....

02-12-2002, 11:35 AM
I would guess that Raven would select the shots that best show the graphics of the game. 3rd person, in almost every case, would show the graphics best. Force Lightning would seem to be the most graphics-intensive Force to show. If you recall from JK or MotS, pull and push did not show much graphically, only a body or a weapon flying.

Third person as the best for gaming? Played many FPS competitively? The only one that I can think of wer people that played JK guns either nf or ff, but it involved putting a dot on your screen for targeting.

02-12-2002, 12:15 PM
We haven't seen many guns from 3rd person either. Or a shot of this stun Baton thingy.

02-12-2002, 12:21 PM
I appreciate the screens:), but think about it, what's the point?

They have released a bunch of screens lately, and they are all basically the same thing, just variations. I for one, don't wanna see TOO much, but why keep showing us things we have seen?

I'd have to agree. Good post. It does seem that most of the screens have the lightsaber, force lightning, stormtroopers. I'd like to see more, but at the same time, leave suprises. I'd like to see more of the maps, maybe screens of the MP maps?

02-12-2002, 12:59 PM
Does anyone else think that they show to many pictures of the Force Lightning? WHERE ARE THE REST OF THE FORCES POWERS? Like maybe have him pushing 5 stormtroopers off an edge or something. Or Pulling a stormtooper to him as they talk about. SOmething.

It just seems like they show him with a lightsaber using lightning on 5 stormies and 2 of them always getting hit. Something new!

But it still looks cool ... :cool:

02-12-2002, 01:10 PM
I would like to see some first person screens with the lightsaber....but I'll be playing third person anyway because it'll look soooooo much cooler :cool:

02-12-2002, 01:28 PM
Heh, good work making the pic. ;)

Personally, I would like to see a multiplayer picture.

02-12-2002, 01:31 PM
Thats what I'm here for Bio Warrior :D.

I might try to go back and fix it. Maybe evem animate it for kicks.

02-12-2002, 02:26 PM
Thats good :D.......I can see why you find it funny Bio Warrior :)

02-12-2002, 03:00 PM
OK, I've seen the game shots. Great! Let's move on to..... oh say.......a demo??? I would rather have a demo in the next week or two and never see another new screen shot than get a few shots every week.

02-12-2002, 05:29 PM
Hmmm...the last first-person lightsaber screenshot was of Obi-Wan...:eyeraise: :eek:
:horn: <--oops how'd that get in there?:D

Yeah, I knew it. Nice picture, but not real. :(

I'm sure 3rd POV will be more beautiful, but I am for immersion and 1st POV is the best way to feel inside the game IMHO. I will definetly play always in 1st POV, even if using the sabre is more difficult. I want to be a good player using "my own eyes" and "my own hands". I play primarly to enjoy.

So, please LEC/Raven, show use such pictures!

Has anyone read the FAQs?! I think this should answer your questions,

Is this a first person or third person game?
Tricky. Jedi Knight supported both first person and third person modes in game. With Jedi Knight II, Raven has implemented a new feature that automatically switches you to third person mode when you activate your saber. So to answer the question, Jedi Knight II is basically classified as a first person shooter with the option of third person mode.

As for the first person forces, I have no clue why there are not any but I can't wait to see one.:p

Graphicsgod, you might want to lighten "Kyle's" hand a touch:)

I wish it was my birthday...I want some funny pink elephants

Who wrote that FAQ? That view switching feature is new to the Q3 engine, if that's what it meant, but its hardly the first time this has happened. We all know that JK had this.

Sorry, maybe I'm nitpicking a bit much today. I'm a bit under the weather, and it's putting me in a mood... :barf: Ever since I started my job about nine months ago, I've been sick more times than I have been in my life before. I've lost my voice now, but my fingers are still working.
