View Full Version : newbie question - Force powers

02-22-2002, 01:07 PM
I was playing around with Obi-Wan for the Xbox. Will the use of the force powers in this game (Force Push/pull, Saber throw, Force focus-slow motion, ect...) be a decent prelude to what to expect in JK2?

02-22-2002, 01:26 PM
To my knowledge, all the force powers in Obi-Wan will be in JK2, except the ones in JK2 will be about 1,000,000 times better hehe.:)

Not to mention JK2 will probably double the force power count in Obi-Wan. Hope that helps.:)

Ok here you go try out this forum topic.


That should give you a good bit of info on what to expect. Also, I have a question for you. Are you in the EF clan OO? If so, I was wondering what servers you play on. I play EF a lot and am in the clan SWS. Although were new to 1.2 we aren't bad at all.

Strider, that's good info, but I guess I was wanting to understand how the force powers would complare to a game such as Obi-Wan.

Also, I already answered your clan question in this thread: http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=32301

Oh ok sorry about that.

02-22-2002, 04:49 PM
np, like I said, it was good info. But a lot of it goes over my head. Obi-Wan has been my first experience using force powers. I found Obi-Wan tons of fun, yet it has gotten bad reviews.

ill see if i can't find you a stripped down version of jk that you could download darthbob..

JK with a maximum install was 128mb.. with cutscenes, sp, and everything not neccessary for mp play removed it ought to be something even more signficantly smaller than that, as far as size goes.

i can then show you what jk force play was like :)

Thanks! That would be great. I hope the EF recomendation was worth your time?

Darthbob maybe if you download the trial version of JK then you can see what the force powers were like in JK

You might poke around the lucasarts web site. They may still have a JK or Mysteries of the Sith demo lurking around somewhere. It seems unlikely, but you never know.

ive never played the jk demo but ive heard it was different so im not sure if it'd represent force play or not..

Oh no it's just the same as full JK. It's just only level 9 of the SP game, and the bespin mining station level and about 5 useable skins in multiplayer. But besides that all is the same, heck even the cheat codes work so you can have fun with all Force Powers and weapons when you get bored on your 4th time of playing through the level. (same applies for MotS.. but no MP option)

02-23-2002, 09:22 PM
ive managed to get the fullversion minus sp, etc. down a 64.7mb zipped file..

now just finding darthbob or a place to upload it to.. :)

Real smart pal, downloading a pirated version of a game.. and also announcing that on a board that's monitored by Lucasarts.. clever.

02-24-2002, 09:29 AM
Well Darthbolt, guess you can't zip up DOS 3.0 and Captian Keen for me as well.

Really Pedro The Hutt, you think it's an issue when I, Deathbolt, and most people reading this have JK2 pre-ordered? Pleeeeeese.

*points at George Lucas' mighty army of lawyers* nuff said. (and besides I'm against pirating, I'll just buy my games through official means thanks ^.^)

Be warned. LEC can get REALLY picky about their copyrights. Especially when it comes to Star Wars stuff. :vader:

LEC are really picky about EVERYTHING. At least this time they gave Raven the ability to do alot with the Star Wars universe :D

Oh right, I forgot about pirating laws.. scratch sending it you darthbob.. I'll hunt down JK in one of the local stores...

02-24-2002, 05:45 PM

Actually, for the purpose of getting familar with Force Powers, and holding me over until the big day, where can I get the JK Demo? Does it support MP?


p.s.s. I ordered JK2 via Lucus on-line, can I change the order to the collector's edition?

p.s.s.s. Did I mention I can't take the waiting?!
