I just read about the fact that LEC have put up their E3 page in preparation for E3 (from jediknightii.net0. You can find it here (http://lucasarts.com/e3/)

I mention this because there's something so funny on that page related to Jedi Academy. Wait for the whole page to load, including the logo top left. Then click on one of the little flashing boxes directly underneath the logo (the one on the left), and wait for the animation to load.

I laughed my butt off. :rofl:

Hmm....looks like they may have increased sabre blocking vs. blasters for this one. :)

Does that mean one of the species is 'Gold Guy'?:D

Did anyone else notice (I haven't checked the other threads) that release date is back to Fall 2003? Hope that sticks ...

That would make a great Easter Egg, to see Gold Guy dancing with a saber in the game - or maybe do a 'Max The Rabbit' from JK. :D

Terribly sorry ... for some reason LucasForums and I are having some difficulties today ... I have to reload each time I post. This one got double-posted somehow (and now deleted).

As for the Gold Guy easter egg ... anywhere would be fun - even somewhere on a wall or in swirling water ...

NP. I have the same trouble myself sometimes. ;)

Yeah. :thumbsup: I still like the idea of a level where Gold Guy fights by your side though. That would be so funny... :D

double headed light saber

Are we talking about siamese twins? Sorry, I looked at that and it was funny. I'll look now. Sounds good.

It was very good, but I wouldn't get my hopes up on that being the real animations. They always seem to add things that could be in for the Gold Guy animations. Bounty Hunter had Jango Fett wrap him in the whip cord and fly off with the jedtpack dragging Gold Guy behind (poor, Gold Guy). You can't pull people with the whipcord. In Rogue Leader, it showed a huge number of stormies dancing in what looks like the surface of the deathstar. They hold up yellow cards, whihc make the shape of Gold Guy. There is no dancing in Rogue Leader (at least none that I don't know about lol).

Gold Guy, the force is with you. Wait, two traits remind me of Kyle. Blue lightsaber (JK2) and access to the lightning. Seems to hve followed the same intermediate path of the force as Kyle.

I believe it's because you haven't paid the 900 points to acquire the sig image. Just keep posting [try not to spam] and you will have the points before you know it. Also, people could donate points to you. Anyways....LucasForums store. (http://www.lucasforums.com/store.php?s=&action=main) :)

Sweet avatar Wacky! :DThankies XDPosted by StormHammer
Heh. Trust you to do something like that. ;)You know me... :D

Seeing as I was the first to have the JK][ icon as an avvy, I thought I'd better keep up appearences and do something with this :D

It was painfully hard work getting it down to size, though :eek: Nice job on that avatar. :D :thumbsup: Thanks :D

If I ever get myself a sigpic, I might put the full version in there for a while... If I can make it less huge X.x;


These sorts of things are what set LEC apart from the rest, IMHO... I dearly hope that in the future they make a custom in-house engine to continue the JK series on... Raven is excellent, but LEC just seems to have that extra magic touch with games... And it'd be cool to have them making their own Jedi ones again :D

I also think it would rock if we ever get to see a cameo of Golden Guy in a JK game - I never got around to trying out the Max easter egg in JK, but I know it'd be awesome if we could have one of LEC's own giving us a hand in one level :D

Hmmm....I think that's highly debatable, considering they developed their own engine for Obi-Wan, which was originally intended for PC. That engine didn't come close to what Raven have achieved with a modified Q3. And the situation is even tougher now, with the likes of S.T.A.L.K.E.R., Far Cry, Doom III and now Half-life 2 on the horizon. The whole bar has been raised in terms of graphics, and developing a decent engine takes considerable development time.

I knew nothing at all about Obi-Wan until I heard about it from peeved JKII-ers, so I've never been up-to-scratch with the facts on that one :(

I suppose that with people like Raven practically making their own engines out of standard ones anyway, there's little point to creating a dedicated JK one from scratch... I still think it'd be nice if they did, but as long as the games continue to be good[excellent], I shan't complain :)

I haven't even reinstalled it since I changed operating systems last year, but I've been thinking about it for a while now... I suppose it couldn't hurt to go and find Max before JA comes out :D

No offense,StormHammer,but I don't see what's funny with that.But it's quite interesting to see...the Gold Man wielding dual sabres doing a Dark Jedi pose?I'd say it's cool.

Probably they'll make that the opening scene for Jedi Knight:Jedi Academy.Maybe?Anything goes....

No offense taken. I guess I was just in the mood for a laugh - I've been a bit down lately - and when I saw that it just cracked me up. :p

Opening scene? You mean like the credits? Yeah, that would rock. :D
