Interesting stuff. We see some more of the Jedi University on Yavin IV, the inner sections of Cloud City, Jan and Kyle in what is presumably the cockpit of the Raven's Claw (Gee, I wonder where that name came from), and a Reborn doing something odd with his lightsaber. It almost looks like he's levitating in his hand, or juggling it, or something.

Wow, JK2 really has come a long way since those first screens. I'm speechless, look at that detail.:eek:

Those are some nice screenshots.

I think that Reborn is doing a saber throw, or a party trick.

Is that glass that those two sabre combatists are on in the first pic? And there is no hud on some shots that look ingame, not that that means they are not ingame or are from cutscenes. Looks amazing; I cant believe after like 10 months we are finally getting this game :)

Just so you know, that's NOT the Raven's Claw. That's our old friend, the Moldy Crow :)

MOLDY CROW, NOT RAVENS CLAW

How can you tell Gonk???

Don't ask questions. Accept it as true..... :D

And this....


this is either

A)- At the jedi academy, watching some people, before you get your saber.


or....

B)- A Jedi Duel map, where 2 people fight and people watch until 1 dies.


personally, I think it's B, because we see pony tail guy fighting there, which leads me to suspect its a MP map.

1> Gonk, I'm with you in saying it's the Moldy Crow. It looks like it, and it better be or I'll get real mad. If Kyle has a new ship...it would be like Han losing the Millenium Falcon or Boba Fett losing Slave 1...it just doesn't happen!

2> Hey, you guys should know that's transparisteel, not glass! Come on SW fans!

Well, he does. That there is the Moldy Crow.

Later on we see the Raven's Claw

Raven's Claw

Known about this since a whiles ago, but now is an appropriate time as ever to add :rolleyes: to that.

And regardless of what happened to the Crow in JK, I agree with swoosh 100%.

edit: Also going to add in another pinch of :rolleyess to the quote above for good measure.

I think Gonk has been trying to tell us over the past couple days that he has had exclusive converage. :rolleyes:

True, gonk? :D

Swoosh: actually boba fett DID lose teh slave i =)

anyway, on the jknotes 7, wtf is this all about?

Each of the eight missions had to be planned out on paper before level construction could begin and the same was true for the weapons, ships, characters and other major constructs in the game.


eight missions? wtf is that about???? bahhh

on that pic, what is up with the shadow? it looks weird...maybe its not a shadow? i dunno, but it looks awkward to me...

That's the Raven's claw. You guys are nuts. Look at the 3rd cutscene "The Vision" in Jedi Knight. The cockpit has them seated in tandem, not side by side. The Jedi Knight II screenshot has them sitting side by side. The backrest for the seats are totally different in the Moldy Crow, and the Canopy is at too sharp an angle to be the Moldy Crow's cockpit.

That said, the Moldy Crow did take quite a beating when Kyle crashed. Maybe when they repaired the Crow, these changes happened, so it is the Moldy Crow (how else would have Kyle and Jan gotten off the planet with the Valley of the Jedi at the end?).

I tend to think that we're not going to be seeing the Moldy Crow in JKII, only the Raven's Claw.

It's ahrd to see that it's the same game as it was a few months ago. So much improvement

I think we were all a little let down by the trailer and left wondering why we were all waiting for this game........these screenshots sure have shown me why im waiting for it. Their also much better than we've ever seen before. I love the glass screenshot and the coloured lightting in the crow :D....QUALITY!!

What the hell has the Stormie on the left go on him, look you can see his neck :)

Rat Boy
02-21-2002, 01:41 PM
The lightning effects are way better. Even after getting yet, the targets still have some bolts arcing up and down them, which was what happened in ROTJ. Of course, if you try this on someone with long hair, will it stand up on end?

Agen

Hehe the oen of them is upside down :D
Oh yeh, the one on the left looks like he has a sticky rocket on him!!! :D

Oops. Double post. Er..you didn't see this! I wasn't here!

DO NOT BE ALARMED.

Proceed with normal routine.

Gonkh8ter, I'm still waiting....:D

Anyway, I'll reinstate what I already said in a thread about the 'multi-player map'.

I'll bet money that it's the Jedi Training grounds in SP, not a multi-player map. A bystander wouldn't make sense, and if you've played Oni, you would know what's going on here. (Remember the training levels, anybody?)

Oh, by the way, Agent_Terminator, you spelled 'flammable' wrong in the icon information thingy you have there.

Hey does anyone know of a program to watch the movies in JK? I don't feel like going through all the levels again, but want to watch the movies to remind myself of the story. Anyone know of where to grab it?!

It's been a while since I had the time to go through that game.

I could send you a save with absolutely everything......if I still have it that is, if not just at the beginning of every level type "thereisnotry" in the console and it will take you to the next level. That will get you all the light side movies but not the dark side ones...

Alright then.... :)

Oh, and eternity, we have had confirmed that there's a jedi duel mode, where we have specitators. we're not sure if it's a free fly spectator mode or locked in an observer area, but I'll bet MY money that that's a MP map. Check my jedi duel mp mode thread...

My only concern with the new pics is shot 4 (the one with the moon in the background). It looks like there is an obvious edge in the skybox. Either that or it's the saber trail, I can't decide.

Sure, just go here (http://www.radgametools.com/bnkdown.htm) and click "The RAD Video Tools". JK cutscenes were compressed using Smacker, while Creat studios used Bink to compress cinematic cutscenes in EF and will probably do that also in JK2(hopefully they are viewable this time though).
