Resurrecting Jedi Academy

I got nostalgic for JA so I reinstalled it. This thread may be dead, but I'll give this question a try.

In this game I've always wanted was to get dismemberment working in a certain way. It seems like with the dismemberment settings I'm familiar with, you can either cut everyone to ribbons (arms, legs, heads, & torsos flying in all directions) or very have little dismemberment happen (an occasional hand or arm will be removed).

I have a couple of posts about this:

So, what I would love is to have it work as I describe in my second post above. I would like it so that any type of dismemberment is possible during a given saber swing (hand, foot, arm, leg, head, torso-halved), but that the chance of a dismemberment happening is configurable - so that it happens only 10% of the time or every 4th time, or whatever.

This way if your in room with, say, three Stormtroopers, you might kill the first two and they stay more or less intact, but on the third you take a his head off.

With dismemberment full-on, it always seemed like the carnage in the battle area was too excessive. There'd be pieces of enemies everywhere, but nothing recognizable.

Hmm...perhaps that's intentional...to point out the horror and futility of war...

*AMEM* ... But I digress.

Does anyone know if its possible to get dismemberment working in this way?
