Hi folks

I just realized that there are probably some people here who have never even played Dark Forces, and have no idea what the plot is about, only that it came before Jedi Knight and so on.

When you make a post, if it contains plot info that would spoil it for someone, please include the text "SPOILERS" in your subject line and take some effort to make the text the bg color or place it some way down the page so people who don't want the plot spoiled don't acidentally discover things about it that they didn't want to.


thanks in advance for this courtesy.

Since I assume that vb code is enabled in these forums (as it is in most lucasforums) then they should be able to use the "spoiler" tag to set off blocks of text (requiring them to be highlighted to be viewed).

That would make it much easier for everyone I would think.

Example:

This is a test, if it had contained real spoilers, well, you get the picture...

thanks - this is exactly what I was hoping for - everyone use this please if you are going to talk about the plot of the game.

There is now an actual "Spoiler" button on the "New Thread" or "Reply to Topic" page. It's up with all the other tools. This should make it easier to post spoilers.

No excuses now :)

Unfortunately, many people don't use them...
Fortunately, they won't spoil it for me. I use them, without the use of the button too!

I may use them excessivley, like when talking about the architecture on a level or a secret area. Should I still use them for things like that, or should I let it go.

You be your own judge :)

I'll ask the admins if you can have a special feature so that whenever you post your text is always hidden - would that do? :p

Dark Forces is the first of the series of games that leads up to Jedi Outcast. Kyle Katarn is the lead character except in the Mysteries of the Sith... And here is a tidbit from Triumph the dog at the AOTC premier... Heres a spoiler... You will die alone! HEHE


Hehe, hows that for a smart-ass spoiler:)
