I have made a Kyle Katarn Fan Site, that is about our favorite Jedi Knight and mercenary, KYLE KATARN...

http://www.kylekatarn.cjb.net

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: )

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.

Ackehallgren

sorry everyone, ill start a new thread at yodas swamp containing the same stuff...

Ackehallgren
02-17-2003, 04:44 PM
if anyone wants to send stuff in to the site, thats ok, complains, feedback and especially Fan Files...

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...

The site looks cool! Keep working on it, I can't wait to see what you end up with...

Great site!

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

Katarn07

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

Katarn07
02-17-2003, 09:43 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...

Looks very nice. I've been going through it and find it very clean cut. Good job. :D

Ackehallgren

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...

That's a really bad picture of Darth Vader. Wow, a helmet. But, other than that, the sites good.

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

If you have a better one, please send it.

Katarn07
02-18-2003, 07:58 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: )

moved? why, right now :D

Ackehallgren
02-19-2003, 05:38 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...

Ackehallgren
02-19-2003, 05:52 AM
I have 2 JK blueprints:

I found this one on the internet:
http://www.bonetweb.com/antonpanton/8t88egtd2.jpg

and I made this one myself:
http://www.bonetweb.com/antonpanton/moldyb.jpg

Should i put them up at "Miscellaneous"?

Nice website Ack! It looks superb! :)

Clemme w/Stick
02-19-2003, 07:30 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

-Clemme

Ackehallgren
02-19-2003, 11:31 AM
well see about the color thing, but what do you mean with intro?

Azrael
02-19-2003, 03:21 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?

Katarn07
02-19-2003, 04:59 PM
I'll try to get them images today when I'm through talking about that video...

Ackehallgren
02-19-2003, 05:01 PM
sure :)

Katarn07
02-19-2003, 05:07 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

Ackehallgren
02-19-2003, 05:10 PM
Great! Thanks a lot!

Ackehallgren
02-19-2003, 05:11 PM
BTW, how do you ask people to donate?

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

Katarn07
02-19-2003, 05:17 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...

Ackehallgren
02-21-2003, 04:52 PM
im updating as we... post?

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

Katarn07
02-21-2003, 04:54 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.

Ackehallgren
02-21-2003, 04:56 PM
what do you mean?

Ackehallgren
02-21-2003, 05:12 PM
the icons are working

SmartDragon
02-21-2003, 05:13 PM
very nice
although my eyes are adjusting again after all the black (could be your intention though)
looks good

Katarn07
02-21-2003, 05:14 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...

Ackehallgren
02-21-2003, 05:29 PM
ok

Ben_Walker
02-22-2003, 08:03 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.

Ackehallgren
02-23-2003, 07:03 AM
how do you mean?

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


POODOO!

Katarn07
02-23-2003, 11:31 AM
Tell me how to print screen in DOS, and I'll do it.

ImmolatedYoda
02-23-2003, 03:26 PM
i can run DF perfectly fine on XP, i just dont know how to take screenies from it.

Hekx
02-23-2003, 03:46 PM
Try pressing the prt scr button next to scroll lock, above the insert and home keys on your keyboard. ;)

Katarn07
02-23-2003, 04:03 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:

Ackehallgren
02-23-2003, 04:10 PM
I think you print it, then you paste it into a image program like photoshop

Hekx
02-23-2003, 04:12 PM

Katarn07
02-23-2003, 04:15 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.

Ackehallgren
02-23-2003, 04:16 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

Hekx
02-23-2003, 04:19 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. ;)

Ackehallgren
02-23-2003, 04:21 PM
thanks a lot :) i need as many images of Kyle as i can get :)

Ackehallgren
02-23-2003, 04:25 PM
how can you run it in XP? XP has no DOS...

Katarn07
02-23-2003, 04:27 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...

Ackehallgren
02-23-2003, 04:32 PM
Thanks a lot, ive updated the site with the new image :)

Katarn07
03-04-2003, 04:51 PM
88's bio is currently Moff Rebus's...

It also wouldn't hurt to add more Dark jedi, like Boc, Maw, Yun, Gorc, and Pic....

Ackehallgren
03-18-2003, 04:34 PM

03-24-2003, 05:41 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.

Ackehallgren

Ackehallgren

Katarn07
03-25-2003, 06:03 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'

http://www.robertbowen.co.uk/UnderFire.jpg

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