Okay guys,
So far I have got the textures and the saber to work perfectly 'In-Game'.

One problem, the saber 'blade' isn't wide enough and neither is the Glow.

Can someone help or tell me what I basically need to do.

Thanx.

Alien, how did you get it so that your character would hold a saber in each hand?! I saw XyA_Jester's screenie, but now you can do it?! how? did I miss a mod available for download or something?

dude your dumb or something, can't you see that its two screens with two diff. characters holding the sabers? if you look closely, both pics have 2 hands holding each saber. duh. very nice job by the looks of the sabers though. when will they be available? i LOVE the saber hilt.

Again that word... hilt ? what does it mean ?

I don't what that word means and neither
does my dictionary (is it saber handle ?)

Anyway if yes that saber handle is not made
by me i have downloaded it BUT Yes it is great
...best i have found (best anakins saber)

--------------------------------------------------------

and yes there are no saber in each hand...
(i just took those screen during fast
style horizontal sweep...)

Well.......thanx.......for.........posting your own mod on my topic!
I still need help on my one??

The trouble I've got , and it appears the other guys got, Is that the blade still appears to be pointed. Where as in the film it's straight and rounded at one end.

Does anyone know how to create this?

Do I need to start fiddling about with codes?

(My actual .JPG's are the right shape but when put 'in-game' they appear pointed)

Jedi_Knight_UK
06-06-2002, 10:22 AM
*bump*

And also..........Did you notice the guy who posted the screenshot did'nt even tell me how he did it!

He's just trying to plug his mod. (Trust me,when mines finished it'll be better)

ALIEN_JL
06-06-2002, 10:42 AM
How i did it ??

Sorry but in my ears that question is a bit
hmm... weard (don't want to insult... for
me it is just so obvious..)

You know that those sabers have two JPG
files per color (for blue saber they are
blue_line.jpg and blue_glow2.jpg)

And in those files colors are colors but
brightness is at the same time brightness
and transparency (black = transparent/
white = opaque)

-------------------------------------------------------

So if you want to make your blade wider
then open that ****_line.jpg and draw
wider blade

In my blade texture that blade (almost
white area) is at the bottom of that image
about half of that whole area and at the
top about 33%....

And that glow... well like you already know
it comes from that ***_glow2.jpg file so just
draw it as wide as you can in it (but keep it
smooth and be sure that there are pure
black everywhere around that color
area or...)

Anyway in my saber that glow is as wide as it
is possible to paint in to that file (making that
image file biger doesn't make difference...)
so if you want to make that glow biger then
you must edit cource code somehow

"The trouble I've got , and it appears the other guys got,
Is that the blade still appears to be pointed. Where as in
the film it's straight and rounded at one end."

Ok i am not sure what you mean but i quess that
you want that saber blade is as thick from tip as
it is from root and that tip of the blade is not
sharp but like ball ??

Soo if you want that whole blade is as wide then
just draw it so in that ****_line.jpg (but member
that brightness is transparency)
you may want to change it to greyscale to
check if it looks like it should...

And when you doesn't want that your blade is sharp
then draw it blunt... and member that your blade is
going to be longer and thinner that it seems in that
file so you must draw it wider and you must draw
tip of it more blunt than you really want it to be...

That helps alot.

I was just wondering if you could post a pic of how you saber looks in Photoshop (Or what ever you used to create it).

So I can see if my dimensions are correct.

Garik Loran
06-06-2002, 12:26 PM
The sabers are looking great. I wonder if you could sent them to me. I am trying to make such sabers for Tchouky's RGB color mod, but the sprites are different than the ones from the original sabers. Your blades are good looking, and I'd like to try something like that for Tchouky, because all the standad jpg look some kind of ugly ingame.
It would be nice if you could help me and send the sabers to me at terrence20@web.de
THX!

ALIEN_JL
06-06-2002, 01:02 PM
No i don't want to give those textures (or that mod)
yet... its not ready...

But there are one thing which may help you guys to
paint your sapers so that they look more like you
want also ingame

------------------------------------------------------------------

Do this (if you use PSP):

Open some saber line (***_line.jpg) file and select
all and copy and paste as new image

Then scale that whole image so that width=100%
and height=200% and then save that new image
in PSP format so that all layer,... settings remains...

(and from now paint your saber in that file)

Then when you have edited your saber and it is ok
just copy it using "copy merged" to clipboard and
paste as new image and then scale that image so
that width=100% and height=50% and then save
it as some ***_line.jpg (what ever color it is)

That way you always have that biger picture with
different layers and ... where you can easily
modify it

I'd really die to have that mod you made looks excellent. You shuold talk to Tchouky and throw it into his saber mod, because i think his current sabers in that mod don't look too good. I think yours are by far, the best ones ive seen so far, maybe make the white area more visible though? Thats my personal opinion, other than that , they look just like the movie. Release it soon, and if possible, in case i lose this post, email me your mod - transcom@optonline.net get back soon!

Jedi_Knight_UK: i'd like to see some screenshots of your mod.

ALIEN_JL: your sabers look so damn good, there is no need to change any more, is it? well, what would it be, and any chance to get your mod?

06-10-2002, 11:44 AM
What does your sabers look like? What I like most at ALIEN_JL sabers is that they have not such a big glow, but the core has some color and it's as thick as the hilt.
Can you post a picture?

mtrixman
06-10-2002, 12:54 PM
you still have the thick saber file? if you do please email it to me at mtrixman@hotmail.com . thanks

The default ones look like ****e and bears no resemblance at all to the movies.

Looking good....

I love ya guys.

Wow! Alien_Jl, that looks amazing. One of the best I've seen so far. The hilt is cool, I use it too. This will be great when it is released.

I would agree. They definitely could have put some more thought into the saber design. The hilt looks kind of ridiculous, as well, like a baton when the saber is not activated.:D



Alien_JL, what saber is in your photo? is that the Anakin saber or the Darth Vader saber?;)

Hi everyone I AM BACK! (how is this topic still alive ?)

1 (one) question... How do you take screenshot
from front of your character... ???

DigiTaL|FiRe
06-15-2002, 01:19 PM
put cheats one IE devmap *mapname* then type cg_thirdpersonangle 180 that give you a 180 degrees turn change 180 to any angle you want

Garik Loran
06-15-2002, 01:20 PM
Write to your autoexec

//------------------------------
//---Screenshots
//------------------------------
bind d "screenshot silent"

//------------------------------
//---Camera angle
//------------------------------
bind g "vstr toggle3"
set x1 "cg_thirdpersonangle 180; set toggle3 vstr x2"
set x2 "cg_thirdpersonangle 90; set toggle3 vstr x3"
set x3 "cg_thirdpersonangle 270; set toggle3 vstr x4"
set x4 "cg_thirdpersonangle 135; set toggle3 vstr x5"
set x5 "cg_thirdpersonangle 225; set toggle3 vstr x6"
set x6 "cg_thirdpersonangle 315; set toggle3 vstr x7"
set x7 "cg_thirdpersonangle 45; set toggle3 vstr x8"
set x8 "cg_thirdpersonangle 0; set toggle3 vstr x1"
set toggle3 "vstr x1"

you may want to change the key d and g, this is just my setting.
Now start a server with cheats (type "devmap ffa_bespin" for example in the console) and use the g button to change the angle.
If you don't want the script you can use the command
cg_thirdpersonangle value to set your viewangle yourself.
then press d (or your assigned button) to make the screenshot or use the "screenshot silent" command in the console.

ok, and after I did everything to keep this thread alove ;) when will you release the sabers?

ALIEN_JL

Blades are almost ready... only thing which i don't like
about them yet is the root (how it goes in to that hilt)

http://alienjl.homestead.com/files/Action.jpg
Blur seems to be ready now (it is not perfect... it looks
a bit different dependending of the direction where i
am looking or where i am in the map or...) but
overally it looks pretty good

(during game... during battle it looks better than in
that screenshot because you can't see it so clearly
when it is moving soo fast..)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

And if you guys have noticed in movies there are flash
and some sparks when two sabers first touch each
other BUT in JK2 that flash is stronger and it remains
as long as those sabers are together (saber lock)

Soo i changed that...

Garik Loran

I could host the file on my server, that's absolute no problem.

CraZy_B
06-17-2002, 01:57 AM
Both mods are lookin great, but I guess it would be the best if you could

1- Make the blue saber a bit brighter (like in ep2 movie)
2- Like u said ALIEN_JL, the start of the blade. It should be as thin as the end m8.

Garik Loran
06-17-2002, 03:36 AM
I had some time this afternoon, and I made some sabers myself. I tried to make them like the sabers from Episode 1. The trail is shorter and only on the upper end.
Just look at this and tell me what you think.

Tchouky
06-17-2002, 03:46 AM
wel talking about sabers :
I got my extendable sabers to work properly !
server side and client side !
the legth is taken in acout when calcuating if a player is hit .
the bots may have one too.
and the saber emits sound when you activate the blade.

you sabers are great by the way !

ALIEN_JL
06-17-2002, 04:04 AM
http://alienjl.homestead.com/files/BlueS.jpg
I changed my blue saber color a bit soo is it Better ??

And what do i think about your sabers Garik Loran ??

Hmm... very good :) but your image quality is very bad :(
If you do that in a couple hours... hmm maybe its my
time to retire...

Garik Loran
06-17-2002, 04:36 AM
NOO. Don't retire, we need more people who do such great things as you do.
My sabers are not to replace yours, I just saw Ep1 on DVD and thought I try to make sabers that look like in Ep1, and my first shot was a good one. But I am not really satisfied with the trail yet, you know what I mean :)
The image quality is so bad because I wanted such a large screenie not too big in filesize so it's loaded in accurate time.

Ok, and about your new blue saber: The core is looking great, but I think it needs more glow. The glow is so small, you even see the circles at the bottom of the blade. I used this snapshot as reference.
http://home.t-online.de/home/0236859584/SWJK2/sabersori.jpg

I think I should work on the blue again. :D

Norin Radd
06-17-2002, 05:26 AM
I think both of your saber models look great. Alien, you should release yours ASAP, but only if you're comfortable doing so. Garik, where could I download your sabers, and also it looks like they have custom hilts. Can I download the hilts as well?:D

mtrixman
06-17-2002, 07:54 AM
just a simple question for ALIEN. does the hilt come in your saber package? if it does anyway we can change the hilts or something? cause i love the saber but i want to use it on the skywalker hilt. thanks

ALIEN_JL
06-17-2002, 04:45 PM
About that glow around the blade...
-I don't know any way to make it biger

And that hilt...
-It is not mine so it is not part of my mod

CraZy_B
06-18-2002, 01:56 AM
I agree with Garik. The glow should be bigger like the menu cursor's. A pity you dunno how to.

And you can find that hilt at jkii.net files section.

YES I do agree... but i don't know how to do it...

Or hmm... Yes i do know.. i know that it is hard
coded SO it is not even possible to make it biger
in SP because there are no SP Code out there

And for MP hmm... well thats not my area (i am
not intrested of building MP mods for game
which "doesn't support" MP mods...)

Tchouky
06-18-2002, 03:31 AM
the glow is hard coded so you can't really change it ...
you can try to modify the xxx_glow2.jpg
but thats all you can do just editing the saber's jpg.
but you can easily make it bigger with a slight modification to the source code.
(thus making it a mod and not an addon.)

CraZy_B
06-18-2002, 05:08 AM
Well, I guess it's really about time to release it ALIEN. Who's with me?:D

But i don't know where to upload/send it yet

Garik Loran

Like I saud, I can host the file on my server, at least until JKII.net or jk2files have uploaded it. Send it to terrence20@web.de if you want me to upload it. :)

No i am not (i didn't really make my sabers as
EP1 sabers but i just tried to make them like in
star wars movies "overall" AND SO that they
looks good ingame)

If i make them like in EP2 they would look most
of the time too "strong" or like they would have
been added afterwards and they doesn't really
fit in... Hmm... i don't think i can really explain...

Anyway they looks different in EP1 and EP2
and mine are closer to EP1 sabers so they
are "EP1 Sabers"

they are in EP1

-------------------------------------------------------------

In EP2 sabers blade (core) is white
In EP1 it is colourful

And in my mod it is also colorfull
and a bit translucent

-------------------------------------------------------------

In EP2 saber blur (core) is white
In EP1 it is colourful...

And in my mod it is also colorfull
and a bit translucent

-------------------------------------------------------------

In EP2 saber blur is usually clear square
In EP1 it is square but usually it looks
like a triangle

In my mod it is trying to look like
a triangle

-------------------------------------------------------------

So i quess it should be

It doesn't matter, they are great sabers anyway!!

Ahem..... I have a problem with your otherwise excellent mod:

Don't know if this has been posted before, but to "activate" the mod, I have to create a server with bots, and *then* go and play on the net for your mod to show up correctly. If I go play on the net right after i started the game, I'll just get the old, standard sabers.

Did that make any sense?

Hope you have an answer and it's not just my computer that's f*cked up yet again...

BTW, I have to do this as well with the new sabersound mods, for them to work.

I don't have that kind of problems...

1. My problems are that host "never" have same mods
what i have so my mods will be disabled...

2. If i join to server where my mods are not allowed and
they will be disabled then they will remain disabled even
if i then join to server where host uses them or unpure
server (when that game disables some mods i must
close that game program and then restart if i want
to get my mods running again)

Bump again!

You're insanely talented, Alien_JL. I'm quite impressed with your work and your creative talent. Keep... uh, keeping us updated, or something.

There has to be some grammatical error in there.

:P

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is hard (or impossible) to take screenshot of that
but there are one new thing what i have succeed to
do and that is to make those characters to use those
actual blocking anims during saber combat (like in SP)

(when normally during saber combat when you block
you just keep your saber in ready position and those
blocking anims are used only when blocking
blaster fire...)

My God! That's incredible! Awesome work, Alien!

Please, tell me you have a release date at least -somewhat- in mind for the near future!

But, you know, quality over speed. Or something. :P

Well i don't have any estimate release dates or anything...

(because i don't know what exactly am i doing (i have no
clear plan/aim...) i just add and remove and modify things
here and there trying to make it better...

It is ready when i don't know what to do or how to do
anymore or when i get sick of this stupid project...

Nothing new to show (or nothing special) but...
http://alienjl.homestead.com/files/TPR2.jpg

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Something new to tell about... YEP.!

Like i sayed in some of those earlier posts characters
now actually use different blocking anims during saber
combat but now i also changed those anims to other
ones which looks better... (when blocking projectiles
you still use those original blocking anims..)

And that whole blocking system have been changed a
bit... now both Force Offence and Defence levels affects
to your blocking abilities... force defence power affects
to all blockings in all situations and force offence affects
to your abilities change in to blocking moves in the
middle of attack move...

If your defence level is one then you can't block at all
during attack no matter what that offence level is and
same reversed (no attack blockings if offence is one)

Even when you have both defence and offence levels
at 3 you can't block during "spinning" attack...

BUT both saber offence and defence costs much more
than normally soo if you want to be top class saber
specialist then you can't have very high other
powers....

Impossible to say... especially now when i found a
nasty little bug from my code... :(

ALIEN_JL

Or hmm... now i noticed that actually this bug is not mine...

It was already in the code... (but it is still annoying and
i don't know how to fix it...)

Just tried your episode 1 sabers and DAMN did you ever do a great job, and from the looks of it your episode 2 sabers will be even better. :)

ALIEN_JL
07-24-2002, 09:16 AM
That first saber mod was just graphic improvements...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

This mod what i am doing now changes quite much more..

But it have its own code (so you can't use TCK, JEDIMOD
or any other mod which makes changes to code at the
same time..)

Anyway what it does:

1. Saber colors: RED <- 3 Shades -> BLUE <- 3 Shades -> GREEN
2. Modified saber hit effects...
3. Modified saber trail...
4. Blocking uses snimations during saber combat...
5. Allows you to block also when attacking (depends of your skill)..
6. Modified saber damage levels
7. Dismemberment stuff on by default...
(6+7 = nearly like saberrealisticcombat...)

8. Modified blaster (pistol, e11, clone cannon) hit effects...
9. Modified blaster (pistol, e11, clone cannon) projectile effects...
10. Modified weapon operation...
11. New weapons/models...
12. Modified bots..

........

Don't really think this is the topic for that, Rocketman. Try one of the 'sticky' help threads up top. They'll be of more use to you.

Well, Alien... Maybe you can post the bug here, so we can try and help you? I most likely can't-- I'm about as inept at editing as a paramecium. But, maybe someone more knowledgeable on the problem can.

...Dunno, just a suggestion.

Holy! That sounds amazing! Hope you get what you've aimed for in this mod. It sounds very promising.

07-26-2002, 05:54 AM
no kidding, it sounds awsome...... I have one question tho,
say I just wanted to use the Saber trails and Saber image alone....do I need to go through the pk3 or can that be released alone for DL?

No i am not going to release them alone...

And anyway if you just take those images from
that pk3 file and put them in to new mod they
doesn't look same...

Because also saber glow and trail system are
different in my mod...

Rocketman
07-26-2002, 05:56 PM
gah! none of aliens pics work for me, i can't see all his sabers. someone help!

and could someone tell me how to make blades, and what programs i need to use to make them, how to put them in game into pk3's. please!

Rocketman
07-26-2002, 06:08 PM
ah nm these last pics he posted work.

i tried out the episode 1 sabers and they look good, cept one thing that i think should be different is the core of the blade shouldn't be see-through.

can't wait to try out these new ones though. good work!

bump

Please please release this soon I want it so badly!!

Just a question: Would you be able to release the ep2 saber seperately than the rest of the mod so that way it won't get messed up with Jedimod or anything?

K.O
08-03-2002, 05:49 AM
Omg, those sabers are amazing! And those are just screenshots! I can't wait for this! The Ep2 sabers I have now are great, but this is even better. Great job with it. :D

Now when i finally found some pics of clonetrooper rifle
i made some models

http://alienjl.homestead.com/files/DC15.jpg

That gun what that trooper is holding in that pic is
my old partly image partly imagination based version
which will soon be replaced with that model above..

08-03-2002, 11:50 AM
Holy crap that is way cool, it would be awesome to have that big rifle to use with the Clonetrooper, i can't wait to try that!

Also please excuse me ALIEN_JL but i have noticed you never posted your Episode1 saber mod on the JK2 file sites, which i think was a BIG mistake. I have tried every saber mod out there and yours is without question the closest to the movies and are the only sabers i use. I bet if it was on the file sites there would be TONS of people downloading it. Just a suggestion, i hate to see great mods like that go to waste cause nobody knows about it. :)

Yes :) i have been playin those bot matches where there are ~10 battle droids all using E11 and rest are clone boys using DC15s

and when in my mod those blaster bolts looks like in movies..
(long lasers) and they move FAST and they kill FAST it really
looks cool... and if you go by your self to run in middle of
that Huh hu it gets hot and You die Fast ... (but it is war
and in war one life doesn't count much.. :))

Well i didn't post it because at that time i didn't know about
any other sites than jediknightii very well and i don't like how
downloads are organized (or are not organized) in there...

And then when i get to play with code i quite much forget
that old insignificant little mod....

Reiver
08-03-2002, 04:23 PM
Wow....you have outdone yourself. Excellent work on the rifle. That must have been some hefty coding to get that laser trail or whatever it's called on there.

I think my mod is good... (it have "in my opinion" way
superior (normal saber) combat compared to normal
game or to any mod out there...)

Of cource it is only my opinion and i am not so sure if
other guys like same things as i do... but i like... :)

And when i say (normal saber) combat i mean no dual
sabers or double bladed saber or new moves or...

(or hmm... new moves.. yes actually there are LOTS of
them when this system blends different kind of attacks
and blocks together...)

---------------------------------------------------------------------

And there are no unlimited saber colors... only these:
red <-- 3 tones between --> blue <-- 3 t. b. --> green)

And i have been planning to set it so that that light
side guys can't select red and darkside guys can't
select anything else than red

---------------------------------------------------------------------

And currently there are no model scaling feature
(i haven't been able to get it work) - soo Yoda
is HUGE :(

---------------------------------------------------------------------

And i have also better bot AI (or Jedi/Sith bot AI actually)
and it is better so that those bots makes much less
mistakes with force usage (they doesn't pull them selfs
to your saber and kill them selfs, they doesn't grib you
so that you can take you pistol and shoot them and
they doesn't try to burn you with lightning when
you are trying to slash them and....

AND whey they have health at very low they use blue
lightsaber style which have best defence instead of
red (which they normally do and which =~ suicide)

----------------------------------------------------------------------

MP only and it is made so that everything what
have been changed have also been renamed...
(means that even if you put it in to your
GameData\Base folder it still doesn't
change anything in SP...)
