Did anyone notice some weird stuff around 1:50 when he is bouncing bowcaster shots off the ground at some guy with a saber? The two things i noticed were:

1. There's a random voice in the background, "too close" or something like that.
2. The red text over the enemy's head. Maybe this is a video clip of multiplayer, and that's the player identification system? I few seconds later in the video, around 1:55, he is fighting another guy with a red saber (same one?) and the red text over the enemy's head is seen again.

I have a crappy AVI version of this video that's like 14mb...could anyone with the real video take a look and see what the text actually is? Is it a player name, or is it debug text (like "Reborn" or "Dark Jedi" or something)?

The .avi is about the same quality as the 94mb version. I couldn't read that text either.

Hm...well the second guy's red text is longer. I'm thinking it's a player name, and the voices are maybe voice communications? Is the game supposed to have that built-in or what?

I truly hope that they do not have players names displayed over their heads in multiplayer. That would just be terrible! IMO anyway.

Printscreens anyone?

In Elite Force you can turn the player names on and off. I'm sure you'll be able to do it in Jedi Knight II as well.

i think player names are cool, as long as they can be toggled, and it'd be nice to be able to have them on the screen instead of over someone's head. maybe put it in the bottom-left corner like in CS instead of crowding the screen over their head.

I'm pretty sure the red text is the player's name, and only appears when they are in the target reticle, I think. I don't find that too distracting... As you've said, it would be nice if you could turn player names off...and I see no reason why that should not be included.

Vertigon the Ravenite has already owned up to being the voice heard in the background...it's a placeholder for a sound effect. :)

Is it a player name, or is it debug text (like "Reborn" or "Dark Jedi" or something)?
