That first new picture is amazing. The elevated glass square arena. That will make an awesome map for one on one lightsaber battling with others watching from below and the sides (like where Kyle is). This will definitely be up on my server.

dis one? tis good aint it?

I'm thinkin maybe that door on the far top right is where you take stairs down into an area, where you line up. Perhaps another door closes after 1 person goes in. They then come out that door at the bottom possibly?

Much better than the arena seats in <b>Rune: Halls of Valhalla</b>. Raven understands that we actually want to be able to SEE the action. ; )

However, the best would be to have different camera monitors to view the battle from every angle, but oh well.

Arena combat.. gotta love it!

Mabye it is where luke shows kyle the different saber styles. But my FAV. pic is where kyle's holding his saber with Yavin in the background. SWEET!!!! A very cool pic to draw or even as a desktop, hint, hint.:D

I don't think it will be like you guys said - watching from above.
I think we'll just be in spectator mode. But I would prefer your idea.

This reminds me of the original rocket arena. Two players fight, all others sit in waiting rooms that have a view of the field. Like the room we see here and the one off to the side.

It will be fun for duels.

This is my favourite screen. Could be a multiplayer map..which would be good. Two people could take it in turns to do honourable battle whilst the other players watch on........I think it might be Yavin though in the Jedi Academy :D

Thres is different rooms to view. kyle is behind glass if u look closely and to the right is a widnows too.

Its probably Yavin..........As you go around in the training these are probably just visual things to make the game look more detailed.......there are the "fine" points of the game.

anyone notice: Kyle seems to have a scar on his left cheek (the one that is facing us, or is that just bad texturing?

I think if you look hard enough, you see that it is just shadow playing off his face. Is it me, or is Jan looking right at me.......... oh baby..... I CAN'T AVOID HER EYES!!!!!!
Damn........ are you trying to seduce me?

Bad texturing? Somebody didn't read their Jedi Knotes! :D

didnt look close enough at the pictures!

didnt see it was an elevated glass platform they're fighting on! holy cool!!! I bet they'll have something like that in multiplayer, it's just too nice!

Also, i wonder what happens then if your saber hits the glass?!

Ditto. I doubt it's a multi-player map, a bystander just doesn't make sense. If you've played..what was that game called...Oni, you would know what is going on. That's the Jedi Training Grounds, I'm sure of it.

It could be MP. I sometimes watch ppl duel to check out their techniques, helps me beat them! ;)

It looks to be a shadowing issue. It could be a texture alignment problem, but I doubt it (this time ;) ). It's probably just the shadows on the model and stopped a little harshly where the edge of his face is on the model.

Shadows are a pain in the arse to get right.

Will it be sorted for the final release??

Eternity
02-21-2002, 04:11 PM
Oh come on, dude, who cares?

Man, I can see the panicky expression on some of the guys in here. 'Texture line?!?! CRAP!!! OMG OMG OMG!'

I'm sure nothing as little as a texture pop-up would hurt the game, so I wouldn't worry about it, guys.

Well I didnt actually notice until you lot said. I was too busy admiring the cloured lighting :D

Only the little bit about how the textures for the models are 1024 X 1024 pixels. Heck, most people can't even run the game in 1024 by 768.

It has a glass floor so that spectators can see them when they fight under the floor.

It seems I didn't make myself understood. This "scar" intrigued me because it appears in another screenshot as discussed in this (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?threadid=32850) forum. It might have some significant part in the story line, who knows? I was asking for opinions, or how Kyle might have acquired the scar (from his last fight with Jerec, maybe?).

That could be a multiplayer level, if I remember correctly it was said in the interview that there was going to be an arena style multiplayer mode.

Its not a scar. All of the chacters, although sometimes they dont look it, are made up of polygons. This is just the edge of one of the polygons that is highlighted by a lightsource placed in a place that accents it.

As the number of polygons in the characters increases, we wont notice this as much in future games. This is similar to how resolutions are becoming so high that we cant see the individual pixels nowadays.

I strongly think it is a multiplayer level. It has the elements of a MP level (big wide spaces for fights) and different levels. The only thing you don't see around the map are items. Maybe it's a saber only map.

If it's a SP map than I'm sure SOMEBODY will make something like that for a MP map. Still, that would be SO SWEET if it's an MP map.

Methinks it's a MP Duel map.

As mentioned in the other thread, i personally think its part of an SP level (jedi academy) re-used for multiplayer... something i definately do NOT object to!!!


it rocks! and it its SP, someone will make it MP :)
