Ok, I watched the E3 tapes over at Stratics, and it occurred to me to write an SWG Episode over the Combat one and get some opinions and answer my ?'s

Well, you have created a character (Bob) and he speacilizing(sp?) in cooking, but he also owns a standard blaster pistol, and has slightly below average gunnery skills (combat, sorry). Bob has to travel to a waypoint to get a special spice, but he comes across ST's who, shoot at him, he fires and misses.

How many shots will it take the stormtroppers to kill him? (if they hit him, in the chest) How many shots will he need to kill one (in the chest)?

Just post the answers or your questions?

I doesn't just depend on wether yout combat skills are good, it depends on a lot of other things.

If the windspeeed is correct, if the stormtrooper has had to much to drink, if the birds 5 miles down the road are singing, etc...
Its hard to tell really :D

But seriously, I think the stormtrooper has a better chance of winning, its combat skills are definatly above average

They don't like cooks! ;) But seriously, what about weapon attacks (as in the power of a shot from his laser)? Would that affect anything?

Sure it would, different blaster types will have different damage models.
Also, with Storm Troopers, it should be difficult to give an exact amount of shots needed to win due to the fact that your accuracy with the weapon will decide on how likely you are to hit him in a weak armored or open area.
As for the damage model to players being area specific, unless I missed it, that info has not been released yet.

i think this equastion will solve all x+yx+15y+zx+x^(1/2)=0 :fett:

It would be even better if you know what kind of equation you were to write. That one makes no sense :)

:confused: Maybe if you defined what your variables are.

In the e3 footage they said they have stuff with headshots etc.

So it will matter, the fact that u will hit depends on the amount of skills u have in your accuracy skill I think.


For example:

Basic shoot skill:

1 feet hit % 100
10 feet hit % 75
20 feet hit % 50

for a advanced shooter:

1 feet hit % 100
10 feet hit % 95
20 feet hit % 75

And we would all miss the 'molens' and 'tulpen' and the overal quality the dutch people have! :D

Why even bother shooting some damn cook? I say, be a cook, and be a Jedi. Then if they attack u, u slash them apart :D

Yes that lightsaber would be a great food slicer.

LOL but seriously I don't think a cook will need to go searching for anything. I would be willing to bet that all the ingrediants you need are available very cheap at npc's. Or maybe farmers, but nowhere where danger is prevalent.

It looks like some generic 3D rendering. (from a game?).

Yes, there are programs to make them. For instance, 3DSMAX. Though, to be able to make good faces and such, I'd say you'd need from a couple of months up to a couple of years of practise :) Oh, and they shell out at a couple of thousand bucks if you are planning on buying it at retail :D

Ah yes, strong is he with the force :yoda:



Although I believe Jedi Knight II has gone down the drainwith the release of 1.03 :(

Yeah, only duels are cool on MP now. My lil' brother told me that on FFA you can totally won by walking backwards through big fights while using light stance. That sucks! It's ok to reward ppl that they did a backstab but don't overdo it.

Anyhow, back to topic, what was it again?

That new JK2 patch is killing me..... all they have to do is drag you to the ground and then do that bloody backspin move...

Can anybody honestly remember what this thread was about to start with? (Without looking back at the top :P )

man, it was about something eh...


Well I remember answering a question with weaponsfire :)

Saber duels are now incredible with the recent uncovering of the Ghoul 2 collision command.

Don't believe me....? Head on over to our forums at jediknightii.net... and you'll see how the collision system functions. It even allows backstab to be blocked, and basically introduces amazing parries.

Ok back on topic... despite the components on the firing system, I hope the battling will be incredible in SWG. When I say battling I mean, all types, swords, sabers, blasters... everything!

In my opinion although the game is much broader then battles, fighting is an immensely large, and integral part of the game. I'am really intrigued about the rarity of the jedi as well. Imagine you have not seen a jedi in your whole time playing the game, and you are travelling in a swoop bike late at night in a desert on naboo, when you see a dark and light jedi dueling!

If the dueling in that sense and in any sense is as good as it is in jediknight 2, this game will be incredible! Actually, even without this, the game will be great, but this will be extremely important in getting the game off the ground and basically above the rest of the online RPG's. (Sorry I don't like that horrid acronymn)
