View Full Version : Darth Maul Saber

04-21-2002, 04:36 AM
Yeah, it's cheating during real MP matches, but I derive a lot of pleasure and relaxation from fighting off 4 bots with a double-bladed lightsaber in a Darth Maul skin. Just a couple of observations...

1. Anyone else noticed that the back half of the saber seems inconsistent in hit detection? Sometimes it works, but just as often it doesn't.

2. Despite the erratic back half of the blade, I get a lot more kills with the double-bladed saber. Strange.

3. Has anyone seen or participated in a duel with two double-bladed sabers? As easy I'd think it to be to set up, I've never really gotten to do it or see it. I'll bet it rocks.

I was under the impression that the dual bladed saber was a cosmetic replacement only, and that the second blade didn't actually cause damage.

If it does, I wonder why more people aren't playing with them.

Both blades do damage, and most people aren't playing with them because that blade only works on cheat enabled servers, so don't expect pubbies to be cheat enabled, otherwise everyone would go around with GOD mode turned on

It's great fun playing with all players double bladed.
The guy on the right had a blue one so the colors looked really cool. Unfortunately he just turned it off as I took the screenshot and then came after me so I was only left with this shot.

That reminds me, what if people turn on Notarget in a multi server with cheats enabled.

Do you just go invisible?

Haha, nice pic.

Yeah, I know it's a devmap-only thing. I usually only do it with a friend or two against some bots on our LAN at school here. You guys seem torn as to whether or not the back half actually does damage; I'm still not totally sure myself. I think I've killed people with it, but I've also seen it go right through people.

Well, it sure LOOKS cool, but if I can't be guaranteed that it will do damage if it hits, I'm not going to waste time practicing with it.

What we need is a mod that introduces a working dual-bladed saber with new animations, new model, and new (logical) moves for all three stances.

Any volunteers? :D

Welcome Ebuchednezzar. That second blade does cause damage. I remember reading somewhere here at jk2.net that it stated it actually did. You can expect that there will be many mods implementing the dual saber so don't worry. I hope the author of sbx decides to this seeing how his dual saber turned out quite well. This is a given though seeing how popular the dual saber is.

is there any possible way to use the double edged saber in sp. If not someone should seriously consider a mod to do this.
