alright, here's my problem. IN SP i see the computer jedi doing cartwheels and I want to do them too...

Now, when i say "cartwheel" I don't mean jumping off a wall and I don't mean rolling. I would assume the move could be done with a variation of crouching, jumping, and strafing but so far nothing's working. I was just wondering if somebody could shed some light on this mystery...

Don't jump to conclusions mate, he may have lost his manual. Maybe he did, maybe he didn't, but don't pre-judge people.

I want to know how to do a cartwheel too! :)

Warez is strictly off limits in this forum. I'd advise you keep your mouth shut before you get yourself in trouble. Buy the game, then maybe someone will help you...

Then if your friend bought it, he has a manual. Go ask him.

my friend is gone on vacation for two weeks and he hasn't really played the game that much...i just don't feel like waiting 2 weeks

i don;t remember reading it anywhere

The manual "doesnt" tell you how to execute a cartwheel..


What page are you reading...

SkitzoManiacal
04-08-2002, 04:42 PM
I don't think it does...because i've talked to others that have read through it and they don't know how to do it...I wish people wouldn't be so quick to condemn me to being a thief before they even know what's going on though

04-08-2002, 04:51 PM
You have to wait 2 weeks? You can't play the game without doing a cartwheel?
Nice story you got there mate.
But since I've bought my copy in Portugal, I'll give the benifit of a doubt to you, because my manual tells, shows and even has a picture of Kyle doing a cartwheel, but since It's in Portuguese, there's a chance your's don't hav'em.

Just side strafe against a wall and quickly press jump. Don't run forward or backwards, just strafe against it.

I'm not sure if you actually read my post, but I said that I already knew how to strafe-jump off a wall, that's not the cartwheel i'm talking about. I'm talking about the one the computer occassionally does

Then pardon my english ignorance but, then what the heck is a cartwheel?

I know the one you are talking about. I have asked this acouple of times and nobody seems to know. It might just be a npc move only. Like the slide forward that luke does or the really fast speed burst that they do as well.

It doesnt say how to do most of the moves in the manual so dont start accusing people......anyway....

Unfortunatly only Reborn Acrobatists can do them.....its kinda like their special move. However I would really love to do it and am sure there will be a mod to allow it at some time.

alright, the best way I can describe THIS cartwheel is that there are no walls involved...the character is always standing with its limbs outstreched. They spin to one side, placing one hand on the ground and then continue to complete their rotation until theyr'e back on their feet...i've been trying to get a levelshot but they move to quickly and I can't seem to bind that cmd to a key

The funny thing is everyone is condemming him for being a warez person and not reading the manual when the move isn't even in it.

He's talking about the move that has several posts about it, and they're usually started by people who tell others to "Read the Manual" so I assume they bought the game. I believe he's talking about the handless cartwheel Tavion and the Reborn do instead of a side-ways roll.

So far people have only seen the NPC characters do it. I don't know how to do it myself, and I've read the manual cover to cover several times. Don't believe I have it? Page 25 of the manual, under the heading "Shield Power Converter" first line, last word: directly

Anyhow, we don't know how to do the move yet, people are trying to figure it out though

Warez talk asside, here's your answer:

YOU CANNOT EXECUTE A CARTWHEEL, period. It's an NPC-only move. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. Until someone mods it in (or digs around the config files), you cannot pull off a cartwheel without the aid of a wall.

I have seen Skywalker do it... he does a 1 hand version of it..

Oddly enough, the speed dash the NPC's do at times can be done by the player, but I've not the slightest idea HOW it is done. Twice now it's happened to me. It's like a second or two burst of force speed. I had it happen once in the level right after Yavin...it happened trying to dodge those evil snipers. And another time in Cloud City streets as I was rushing an enemy on a mountable turrent.

I should mentioned I was replaying the game with setforceall 5 active.

I have seen it also when I was almost sniped.. The book mentions something about being able to dodge sniper fire. I thought I used mind trick on the Enemy and as soon as he fired I dashed out of the way.. pretty cool.

The dodge sniper shot things happens if you have Force Speed at level 2 in sp and are standing still. in mp You must have Froce seeing on and it will dodge sniper shots

Hehe.

No offense, but this is the exact opposite of what's true.

In order to preform a cartwheel (the kick a$$ move the reborn love to do when the attack you from midair while they are upside down) all you have to do is run at your opponent and then press attack + jump simultaneously. I'm not sure if it requires a certain level of force jump but I know that it IS possible. No ifs, ands or buts about it :P. Just make sure that you are nice and close when you attempt it.

And one more thing...

I know that a cartwheel can be executed in the medium style saber stance but im not sure about the others. I suggest you try executing it in the medium stance first and then try the others.

I would imagine anything that the NPC's can you the player can do... you can do every other move then can do, why would a cartwheel be any different?

I've finished the game a couple of times and I was just playing the tavion battle over and over. When I was fighting she was standing sort of behind me and to the side and I pushed jump quickly and attack and back and kyle did a cartwheel type move and swung his saber at her.

Wes Janson SMR

UgonDieFoo, that's not a carthweel, dude. And that's not the move the guy was was asking about. ;-) I know how to do that move, and I do it quite often.

What we're talking about is a sideways cartwheel....It looks like the sideways wall jump evasive move that Kyle can do. That particular move, you cannot do. It's NPC only.

UgonDieFoo

Oh my bad...

Actually I think I know what you're talking about.
If your referring to just a plain cartwheel then...
I can't say if its possible or not sice I've never done it.

Plz excuse my mistake.

I thank everyone for their input...in my opinion, it would seem that someone would have to use the config files or console commands to perhaps find out how to activate them...I don't know how to search through these things myself, but if anyone could help me with that too...it woudl be helpful...

No more than 2 hours ago me and my brother were playing a lan game against each other and he did the darth maul cartwheel..he was standing aboot 10 feet away from me and wasn't even looking in my direction, he was using reborn no less. So to everyone who says it can't be done...don't be so quick to talk and warez rules!!!! Peace.:fett:

i think it is possible... I have seen it once, so it may have been my imagination, but it happend when the reborn did a cartwheel. So in order to do one, the Reborn has to do one at the same time.

ok there was a long post at www.massassi.net about this and the conclution was exactly what is stated above.

Skitz, I just have to ask. I'm pretty sure the answer is no, but I thought just in case it's yes, and I didn't ask...

I haven't gone far enough yet in SP to meet the Reborn, so I don't know the move you call a cartwheel.

But if it's not really a cartwheel, but kind of... jump up, tuck legs up under, and spin over sideways, saber out... I can do that. Press strafe and then jump. I think you tap strafe, and hold jump.

Is that what you wanted? (Not likely, but in the interest of being helpful, a guy can hope...)

All right, you cannot do the type of cartwheel the thread creato is talking about. You can do those things off the walls, you can do that flip thing over an enemy's head, and you can to a side flip. But you cannot do: the character is always standing with its limbs outstreched. They spin to one side, placing one hand on the ground and then continue to complete their rotation until theyr'e back on their feet.

I'm going to close this now because of all the warez talk and plus the fact that you got your answer. It's illegal regardless of if you're going to buy it orif you're just testing it or if you're borrowing it or even if it's in the mail coming to you. Sorry, it's just against these forums' regulations.

If you have a question or comment, please private message me.

<sigh> does it matter? its a cartwheel... maybe you can do it if you pay attention to the people who have said theyve seen it. maybe you cant if you pay attention to the ones who seem to know what they are talking about in the manner(lol). either way, its a cartwheel, or actually i believe its called an aerial if its no hands. its not going to make you any better. hell it probably makes you easier to hit.
