View Full Version : The Kyle Katarn Fan Site

02-17-2003, 03:33 PM
I have made a Kyle Katarn Fan Site, that is about our favorite Jedi Knight and mercenary, KYLE KATARN...


Check it out and tell me what you think about it.

(By the way, the site just rebooted, so all sections are not complete...:jaw2: )

02-17-2003, 03:36 PM
I was there when it had the old design. New one is lots better, new content looks promising.

This should be in Yoda's Swamp, by the way, Alehal.

02-17-2003, 03:38 PM
sorry everyone, ill start a new thread at yodas swamp containing the same stuff...

02-17-2003, 03:44 PM
if anyone wants to send stuff in to the site, thats ok, complains, feedback and especially Fan Files...

02-17-2003, 04:02 PM
Hey, I was GunganWarrior750 at SW.com and that was my AOL email before I switched to Katarn07. In the Jan Ors section, it says this info provided by GunganWarrior750. I would appreciate it if you would switch it.

And if you need prrof, go to SW.com's forums and search for a thread posted by me a looooong time ago called: I am GunganWarrior750!!!

I'd appreciate it. Can't wait to see the new content. ;) It'll be great.

And that fanfic I said I'd write is not going anywhere... :(

*** Still in the Valley? Mods here are slower than in the Swamp... Oh well. When can we expect the entire site to be back up Alehal, with the new content? When it is, I am sure it will be considered the ultimate source for the DF/ JK series...

02-17-2003, 07:58 PM
The site looks cool! Keep working on it, I can't wait to see what you end up with...

02-17-2003, 07:59 PM
Great site!

Some spelling errors, but otherwise its really cool :cool:

02-17-2003, 08:02 PM
Location: Sweden

That might be why there are errors. I can go through and proofreed (not tonight, but gradually over the week) however, with all the content your getting, spelling errors are trivial... ;)

better hope spelling/grammar doesnt matter, especially if you "proofreed" it. "your" not all too great at that it seems. :p :p

02-17-2003, 08:43 PM
I'm not even going to attempt spelling what I want to to avoid more flaming. (Nothing bad, begins with a "t", used in fencing, probably has an accent on it some where...)

Proofread. Better? I gave a link to the site to the DF mod web guy, The_One, so if you get that up and running soon (I have no clue when soon is) I am sure he'd put it on the top ten DF links...

02-17-2003, 09:59 PM
Looks very nice. I've been going through it and find it very clean cut. Good job. :D

02-18-2003, 08:30 AM
Thanks for all your support :)

If you find any spelling errors, and you feel that it is important to correct, please send a mail, with the correct spelling :)

Im not sure when the site will be finished, but i am working with it, as much as i can...

Any help, Fan Fiction, Fan Art, Humor or whatever you want to send me is very appreciated.

Once again, Thanks...

02-18-2003, 11:34 AM
That's a really bad picture of Darth Vader. Wow, a helmet. But, other than that, the sites good.

02-18-2003, 01:37 PM
Well, it was the only picture of Vader that i could get from DF.

If you have a better one, please send it.

02-18-2003, 06:58 PM
I'll attempt to snap some shots from both the opening cutscene after level one and the final one where he utters my favorite line... "The Force is strong Katarn..." That is after the last level. Can't promise. DF is a DOS game and I may not be able to run the program to snap screens...

*** Hey, mods, can this get moved to the Swamp?

A) Alehal will get more feed back and suggestions.

B) Belongs there

C) Easier to get access to (rarely come here... :rolleyes: )

02-19-2003, 03:23 AM
moved? why, right now :D

02-19-2003, 04:38 AM
Well, if you could get good images of Vader, send them, since my computer is (believe it or not) to fast for DF :(

I dont have MS-DOS...

02-19-2003, 04:52 AM
I have 2 JK blueprints:

I found this one on the internet:

and I made this one myself:

Should i put them up at "Miscellaneous"?

02-19-2003, 06:00 AM
Nice website Ack! It looks superb! :)

Clemme w/Stick
02-19-2003, 06:30 AM
Very nice! I will go through the site when I have some time, or when I'm bored!
The intro looks nice, but a little color on the site wouldnt hurt any1! :D


02-19-2003, 10:31 AM
well see about the color thing, but what do you mean with intro?

02-19-2003, 02:21 PM
I'm sorry about that Vader picture comment, I didn't mean to sound like an *******. It's just, with all the pictures of Darth Vader on the net, I though there would be another one. The site is really good, though. It's nice to see a site devoted entirely to Katarn. BTW, who's fan art is that?

02-19-2003, 03:59 PM
I'll try to get them images today when I'm through talking about that video...

02-19-2003, 04:01 PM
sure :)

02-19-2003, 04:07 PM
Since that video concerns your site I'll post here I emailed the seller. Hopefully, when I have both a job and money, he will make another Crow that I can snatch for myself. :D

02-19-2003, 04:10 PM
Great! Thanks a lot!

02-19-2003, 04:11 PM
BTW, how do you ask people to donate?

(Since im new here i dont really get the "Credit system")

02-19-2003, 04:17 PM
Unlike SW forums, there is an edit option for your posts. What your doing is double posting. Look in the lower right hand side of your post...

There is a thread in the swamp to get credits called the Father Torque Foundation. Tell them what you want, and they'll donate to you (don't expect all 900 if you want a sig) but you probably get all 30 if you want a hotel room...

02-21-2003, 03:52 PM
im updating as we... post?

anyway, the site will now be updated with avatars :D:D:D

02-21-2003, 03:54 PM
Oh, the images taken did not work. They took pics of my desktop with the application DARK on the taskbar... Sorry. I'll check the site out.

02-21-2003, 03:56 PM
what do you mean?

02-21-2003, 04:12 PM
the icons are working


02-21-2003, 04:13 PM
very nice
although my eyes are adjusting again after all the black (could be your intention though)
looks good

02-21-2003, 04:14 PM
Do you have all the content written? Most of it you can just put up from the manual, I think, and say that is where it is from. That way, there are no legal issues. However, I am not sure that doing that would be legal...

I am saying basically, I could not get an image of Vader from the game with my program that snaps screens because it is a DOS game...

02-21-2003, 04:29 PM

02-22-2003, 07:03 PM
Sweet site. Don't know if you can do this, but perhaps you can use the Playstation verson of Dark Forces to get a good pic of Vader. Keep in mind I know bugger all of this type of thing.

02-23-2003, 06:03 AM
how do you mean?

and the reason i cant "print the screen" is because i have Windows XP and cant run MS-DOS :(


02-23-2003, 10:31 AM
Tell me how to print screen in DOS, and I'll do it.

02-23-2003, 02:26 PM
i can run DF perfectly fine on XP, i just dont know how to take screenies from it.

02-23-2003, 02:46 PM
Try pressing the prt scr button next to scroll lock, above the insert and home keys on your keyboard. ;)

02-23-2003, 03:03 PM
I'll try that. I thought there was more to it. Do youknow will the screenie will be saved? For JK, it saved in the main folder, but JO made its own folder... :confused:

02-23-2003, 03:10 PM
I think you print it, then you paste it into a image program like photoshop

02-23-2003, 03:12 PM

02-23-2003, 03:15 PM
OK, I'll do that then. I have 2 shots in mind I'll give you later tonight if I have nothing better to do.

02-23-2003, 03:16 PM
ok, thanks :D i might not be online much longer, but you can give it to me next time, if that is the case

02-23-2003, 03:19 PM
I might try to get some poses of Kyle in ModView, if I do, I'll post them here so you can make them into avatars. ;)

02-23-2003, 03:21 PM
thanks a lot :) i need as many images of Kyle as i can get :)

02-23-2003, 03:25 PM
how can you run it in XP? XP has no DOS...

02-23-2003, 03:27 PM
All Windows have DOS. Try running the game with the icon instead of the prompt. Install, go to C:/DARK/DARK.exe, it should work that way...

Oh, the first image was to cartoonish, so I gave you this one. This is at the end of the game where he says, "The Force is strong with Katarn..."


***This is my 1987th post! That is the year I was born... And I thought it was cool for it to be 1138. Oh well. :D :p :D Thankyou for listening to my stupid rants...

02-23-2003, 03:32 PM
Thanks a lot, ive updated the site with the new image :)

and, i sware, my XP has no real DOS

02-23-2003, 03:39 PM
sorry guys :( i got to go now, see you all tomorrow :D


03-04-2003, 07:57 AM
well, the site is updated again :) some new sections...

03-04-2003, 03:51 PM
88's bio is currently Moff Rebus's...

03-18-2003, 03:34 PM

PM Stormhammer about his fanfic and fanart...

03-24-2003, 04:41 PM
ackehallgren I'm the Dark Forces MOD Webmaster. I added a link to your site in our links section, and I'd be more than happy to give you a plug on our front page next update I do.

I'm also working on an affiliates thing. It would be kinda like you have down the right side of your page with lots of 88x31 image links to various websites. I want to do an exchange image link with some sites, and yours is certainly on my list ;)

Drop me a mail TheOne@darkforces.thegamingunion.com and we can talk more.

03-25-2003, 02:13 AM

03-25-2003, 05:03 PM
Look at the lower right hand spot of your posts, Ack, and you'll see an edit button. You should learn to use it.

No, I never did get a reply...

And yes, Stormhammer has made a painting of Kyle 'Under Fire'


and is writing of his 'Redemption.' (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=94444)
