On the "Artus_Mine" level, go to the bottom of the watch tower where the lights are searching, then, turn and look toward the pipes an bunkers. On the farthest left cliffside, you will see a very distinctive face. I have no idea who it is, if it's a glitch, or an actual easter egg, but there is definately a face on the mountain side.

Um.... I'm looking at that area right now (windowed mode ahoy!), and I don't see anything.

I see it but I am wondering if it was just a work in how the textures were placed, not sure. I would post the SS but all I have is geocities and its 3 oclock in the morning and dont feel like messing with it. Looks like a guy with a beard and mustache, heh.

Yeah, a guy with a beard and mustache. I'd post a screenie, but 1 I don't know how to take one, 2 I don't know how to retrieve it, and 3 I have no webspace to load it to. But, it's plainly an easter egg. The textures couldn't be messed up that precisely

I know this is going to sound dumb, and yes I do have the original JK, so I am not a n00b to this series at all. What is an easter egg? What do they do? What are they for?

An easter egg is just something hidden in the game. It is not just a JK thing lots a games have them. Most of the time they are just pictures or some sort of image (man in the mountain) but sometimes they are hidden rooms and such. One of my favorite EE is when you are zoomed in on one of the girly posters in Metal Gear Solid 2 and you use your radio. Best Easter Egg Ever! :D

Too bad they didn't spend less time on Easter Eggs and more time on fixing bugs (especially these crashes...).

Despite what you think, this isn't funny anymore. It's stepped down from "haha funny for a few minutes" to "Annoying to the point that I will mercilessly torture anybody that says it".

If somebody told you the same exact joke every time they saw you, would you think it was funny after the 100th time you heard it?

Good comedians know when a joke isn't funny anymore, and they stop telling it.

Now this phrase has the same effect in the forums as it does in-game.

I looked in the area you tlaked about and didnt see any face. I saw some textures that has some face like features but nothing that looked like an actual person. Any chance you could take a screen shot of the area you're talking about?

If you can tell me how to do the first two things, I can handle the last one. ;)

Press printscreen go into paint and press paste, like a screen dump.

Easter eggs are funny.

In Baldurs Gate II there's a painting of Elvis on the wall :lol:
Don't know of any Jedi Outcast ones, so kudos to those who find them.

Hey! You there! This is how you take a screenshot!

Go to the console (hold shift, tilde):

bind <key> screenshot

Where <key> is the key you want to use to take the screenshots with.

ex:

bind f12 screenshot

Makes every press of the F12 key take a screenshot!

The shots you take are located in your base/screenshots/

Folder in your JK2 game directory. Now let's see it!

(And yes, you can alt+printscreen and paste into a new file in Photoshop, but this is a lot quicker and easier, unless you're taking shots of the menus or something)

hmm that must be the dude..... is it me or does it look like a t-16 skyhopper is trying to fly up his nose....:D

The Seeker

Yeah, that's the picture. But, I see your problem, which is your brightness isn't turned up enough to see it, so it's mostly hidden in shadow. I'll take a screen and post it so you can see it as I did.

And thanks kurgan for the directions.

So, anyone interested in hosting the pic for me. Give me an email address from any takers and I'll send you the pic, then tell me the address so I can post it here. Thanks

Okay, this is set up through geocities, so no telling if this will work, but here goes: http://us.share.geocities.com/jediknight_114/screenshot.bmp

If you cant see the pic, here's the link to the page http://us.share.geocities.com/jediknight_114/screenshot.bmp If the link, doesn't work, just copy and paste this: http://us.share.geocities.com/jediknight_114/screenshot.bmp in your browser and it should go through.

So, what think you guys. Easter egg, or texture glitch. If easter egg, any idea who or what it is?

Is it just me or does he look a bit like Max?

My guess is its accidental. Ide say the wall texture was used twice and something has happened and its flipped or something, because you may notice that directly down the middle of the 'face' is where the rock stops and goes in another direction. And on either side is a mirror imaged texture... but hey he has to get some points for trying.

Spent lots of time figuring out that level, so closely studied every corner of it. Including that mountain side. And with my 500MHz CPU, I have to keep everything turned down to the lowest settings. Otherwise, I get terrible FPS.

JediKnight_114, you have my deepest sympathies.

I thought i would have similar troubles when i first got the game, not because of my Spec but because of the fact i have a Voodoo 5 powering my graphics. luckily i sorted it, and now i can run everything in full texture busting glory.

but i feel for you dude...it must be hard but one day you'll meet another computer, one who's better looking and more able to care for your needs...and then it will be love

well done for spotting it though...looks kinda like Kyle. sort of. or max payne...possibly while taking a ****. which says a lot considering he looks constipated most of the time anyway

Isn't the HEY YOU THERE quote from Serious Sam, or was it just included as some sort of insider gag?

Yeah, I'm getting a new computer soon. Soon being a very relative term which could translate as "in the next few days" or "in the next few months" but I will be getting one soon. I however already have a pretty good 3D card: Visiontek GeForce 2 MX400 64MB PCI card. So, that's not the problem, but without a good CPU, I can just barely run the game. Like in the level with the Old man of the mountains, I can barely get through the outdoor areas because all the detail of the cliffsides just overloads my system or something, because it is jumpy as hell.

So, was it ever decided for sure if that's an easter egg or an accident?

Hey You There is from the game when the stormtrooper taunts. Storm Troopers always say hey you there in SP right before i throw them accross the room. Of course stormies would say Hey you there. It's like, their line. Its like a cop saying: Hey you! Hands up! its just what they say.

:trooper:---Hey, you the-khgkgkkkkhghkaaaaaah! *SLAM!* ooh.. *SIZZLE*
