View Full Version : Original Kyle

Frankly, as far as I'm concerned, Kyle needs to be upgraded. Remember how he looked in the original Dark Forces? I was dismayed at his appearance in Jedi Knight, and am further depressed at his appearance in Jedi Knight II. He needs the leather jacket.
I'm currently trying to learn how to skin, but I'm hoping someone will beat me to the punch and create a mod/skin for Kyle using the picture of him on the front of the JKII manual. The 70's look is terrible.
BTW, I'm a total newbie at skinning, but if someone could tell me where to research some how to start at the beginning, I'd appreciate it.

A little badger told me that some clever individual is either working on OR has already made a Dark Kyle skin (from Mysteries of the Sith) and it's here http://www.massassi.net/levels/files/1952.shtml. (thanks to jkii.net news section for that)

Unfortunately it's not Dark Forces 1 Kyle but it's hopefully a step in the right direction.

Well, to say the least, I was disappointed with that Dark Kyle skin, as most of it is just black, and the main parts are just the Jedi Knight 1 skin parts, resized..I will be remaking Dark Kyle for JK2, using totally new hand drawn skins, so they will be nice and crisp...it's next in line for my "Classic JK1" series of skins for JK2..

I know nothing (almost) about skinning, but I think the only thing that will make me happy is a new model and skin. I did find the perfect pic of him... on the back of the CD case, swinging a saber.

What someone needs to do is, once the model editors come out, make a new Kyle model based on his depiction on the back of the CD case. Now that would be one bad ass Kyle, I mean have you seen that pic? Itís totally sweet. Thatís how he should have looked, I mean he's all right in the game, but really, he looks more like someoneís mild mannered middle aged dad, not a rough and ready war worn merc battling against the constant gnawing pull of the dark side. They definitely should have given him an update along the lines of the stylized CD art. And thatís all I have to say about that.
