i gotta admit i added it and liked it at once,makes the bespin levels much more better.

timster0 03-18-2008 08:52 PM

Sweet! I agree, it's looks alot better.

CrisG 03-19-2008 03:09 AM

Ok i am glad i found this thread
My copy of JK Outcast has a problem, i do not get any sky boxes at all. Just a pale yellow sky and I thought at first play through this was the default sky :)

can anyone tell me what file to look for or how to adjust or fix this? i am playing a copy of JK II Outcast that I bought from Amazon about two months ago, ....i use an AMD XP SP2 pro system, should i use Win 98 compatability or something lilke that? i just to not know how to try to tweak it. I could try loading up this mod to see if it will make a sky....

I would LOVE to see some real skies in the game :) thanks for any help
chris

jedimike2234 03-19-2008 07:21 PM

when you say pale yellow sky what do you mean?on which level is this happening?can you take a screenshot to see?is this yellow sky all through the game?even when you change locales?

Thanks for the reply Jedimike, it got fixed when i loaded up this mod evidently something was not activated in the file sets or shut down, i also tweaked the visual settings and all the skies now appear. It is SO much better. The sky before was a pale yellow tone evidently the backtone for the lighting for the sky boxes...and it was ok but really unspiriing. The real skies are excellent and very much more interessting. I am now playing the Mace Windu Party Crasher mod and loving it btw but this Bespin sky mod is really nice i enjoy it very much, a very pretty effect. I should have asked about the sky fault before but i was shy about bugging you guys as i am pretty new to JKO ...i think it is an awesome game btw, one of the best i have played, and the lighting both inside and out especially interests me as i am a 2 D and 3D artist and student of game design and devel. I am just starting to play thru the mods and player made levels ....and there are some really good ones thank goodness for the massassi Temple and other archives of the mods and levels! :)

jedimike2234 03-20-2008 01:31 PM

hey its good you got it working.yeah there are plenty of great mods,its a shame that one of the best places to get the mods is gone it was pcgamemods.but jediknight2 at filefront is the still around and they are now better than ever.

Buffy 03-21-2008 12:13 PM

you guys can make your own skybox mod too
 
here is I made some different version of Bespin Sky for my personal fun
I didnt make jpg files it from JA's other Map's skybox
I just playaround and replace Bespin's skybox :D
you can just replace your own skin box and feel free to use !
name and size must be same ;)

CrisG 03-21-2008 01:33 PM

buffy those are just awesomely beautiful!!! i am gonna grab that immediately! thanks so much for sharing that, really nice indeed :)

And thanks JediMike, ys the mods and levels are remarkable, just now playing the wonderful Mainframe and plan to go on with the first sequel still havent found the third in that series....[edit: just found it, Vengance of the Sith, on
ediknight2 :) thanks again]

and did just enjoy the heck out of Lighthouse too! What fun that was!

jedimike2234 03-21-2008 04:08 PM

wow,buffy those are just incredibile!!!thank you for sharing those with us!!!
fantastic work buffy!!!
and cris i can recommend spaceport by michael may and sith valley as well,he also did these levels called nar shaddaa again,which is very good,kessel,that one is stil a fav of mine.and also coruscant also by mike may.those are all single player maps.
and if you can i also recomend the dark forces mod for jedi academy,that really amazed me.
there is also a mod called tavion which is really good as well.

thank you buffy,i just tried it in game and it is awesome!!!!thank you buffy!

CrisG 03-21-2008 06:13 PM

JediKnight,
I could not find Spaceport or Sith Valley by Mike May, i did find the others tho and thanks....

Re Dark Forces i found a mod for JKII O but not for JK III....do you have a linkey? also Tavion i have not found yet thanks
and thanks so much for the suggestions, May's maps look great and I had overlooked them.. thanks again

jedimike2234 03-21-2008 08:19 PM

ok the dark forces link is for jedi academy,
http://www.darkforces.jediknight.net/index2.shtml

its a large download but its amazing!!!and worth the wait.
valley of the sith is on massassi check the download section for jedi academy single player levels
um....the thing with spaceport which was one of his best,the only place i think you could get it was pcgamemods and they are no longer with us.
let me check around to see if anyone else has it and ill get back to you.
heres the link for tavion
http://jediknight3.filefront.com/file/Tavion;3006

with me i have outcast ,the whole game playing from academy,for the moves and better enemies.but this mod,to allow you to play all of outcasts missions in academy was taken down but i think,buffy ,had or has helped people to do this.im not sure of this.

another real good one is this the escape yavin levels,another huge download but worth it
http://jediknight3.filefront.com/fil...ost_Maps;58958

and i also cant forget the nina series,these maps are spectacular and the new one is coming as well
http://jediknight3.filefront.com/file/Nina_Mod_15;34242
http://jediknight3.filefront.com/fil...d_Secret;39828
http://jediknight3.filefront.com/file/Nova_Unit;55405
http://jediknight3.filefront.com/fil..._Genesis;70175

on the massassi boards he previewed the new level with nina.

CrisG 03-21-2008 10:30 PM

Fantastic! I had no idea there was a mod that allowed us to play Outcast levels in Academy, very cool. thanks so much for the links, i will be downloading. I do have the Nina series, they are remarkable indeed. I am looking forward to all of these. :)

And sorry i had a mind futz re Dark Forces, i grabbed it as soon as they finished this what they told me would be the final release....of the first six levels! thanks. I own all of the game in the original form but it will be fun to see this remake using the JKA engine....thanks for reminding me as it is in my queue. Cheers. Back to dling :)

Buffy 03-22-2008 09:10 AM

heres a review but as youll see the link to the download is down:
http://www.map-review.com/index.php?...&game=JO&id=10
sadily i looked but these levels are no longer available,and like nemesis of katarn is another huge download...happy hunting.

CrisG 03-22-2008 11:09 AM

Thanks Buffy I have been studying and reviewing the levels on the Massassai Temple for some time now, thanks very much for sending that linky...

I have been searching for the Imperial Hoth level too, no luck so far, tried to contact the author no response yet :) if anyone has it i would love to try to get a copy.....as it looks realy nice.

that link for nemisis of katarn is stil working !!! thanks again for the links i am working through all your suggestions slowly and with great appreciation.

jedimike2234 03-23-2008 01:37 PM

crisg,some good news i managed to get in contact with michael may through email about posting the level spaceport,and he said he would post it at jediknight 2 2filefront soon.,he told me he submitted it to massassi but they never posted the level.so be on the lookout.

CrisG 03-23-2008 05:54 PM

Wow cool thanks so much jedimike, please tell him i LOVE his levels so far, i am playing the ones i could find now. and they are first rate!!

Buffy, i need to ask about the skies, what happens if we put the file into our game? does that sky happen for every level or just certain ones? i do not know how to open the pack file or insert individual skies for individual levels yet :) thanks for any hints on that or a link to a tutorial if there is one on this.... do we need to use Radiant to open the pack and adjust the skies? yours are so beautiful. thanks again
chris

Buffy 03-23-2008 08:55 PM

no no sorry
