I found Spirit Theif the best against the wandering/flying/masked ghosts things, plus it's a great way to keep you're levels up whilst still inflicting some damage

Great Googulley-Moogulley man! Did you stop and talk to anyone or was your goal simply to complete the game as fast as you could?

There are just too many inputs for me to comfortably handle though. Press E to chi-enhance your attacks, F to enter focus mode, et al. In combat you're always facing your selected opponent unless you toggle free combat mode by pressing T so you can run about freely. I find that rather annoying. It's definitely a much different combat style than what I'm used to with the KotOR games but of course I knew that going in and decided to go for it anyway. No regrets, just a different experience than KotOR.

I haven't totally figured out the combat thing, either--I may go back to the start spot and spar a couple more times to 'get it' better.

Today I bought Jade Empire! Installed it first thing after I got home. Deleted all my Kotor safes to get enough space on my PC.

And then I click on "start". *Insert complex dll name here* not found. I get the dll from another PC. I click on start again. *insert weird name here* not found in *insert weird name here*

I took a look on the Dvd box and what do I have to discover? It's for XP only. No windows 2000, which is the OS i have.

I'm really frustrated now - before I install XP (which I will certainly do to play Jade Empire) is there anyone here who knows how to run it with Windows 2000 Professional Edition?

Can't you get it to work using Computability mode? Or else make a post at the official forums: http://jade.bioware.com/forums/

That's because she is well beyond 29 years. Remember the poll results?

I added a no poislers tag to the thread title. If people want to start discussing the storyline, they can start another thread

Now that we have a forum to discuss video games, there is no point in keeping it all in one thread and ending with monster threads like the nwn2 and the Oblivion ones

Now after installing XP 3 times to get it to work, downloading a few 100MB to get dirextx 9.0c to work, Jade Empire WORKS!

And it's a great game, I just love the style of the game. The combat is quite cool too, a very good example that real time combat works well in story driven RPGs.
But the china - mystic flair is by far the best thing in Jade empire. Bioware ftw.

Well since we've been discussing it I purchased it on Amazon (the new edition) pretty cheap too. So now I'm all excited about it again.

Now I've finally played through the game! The boss fight was a bit easy, but what a great game!

Is it just me though, or wasn't the big relevation not that unpredictable? I had a feeling things would turn out that way.

So, I've finally played Jade Empire. *lag*

Sky and Radiant Jen Zi, YES!!

I must admit, the speed of things after Chapter 3 took me by surprise. When I was browsing, I was pretty shocked that people could finish it in 26 hours on average. Once I hit Chapter 4, could see the reason though.

I tinkered with the 2da to alter Dawn Star to use Wu the Lotus Blossom's model. Looks very much better that way:P

It was a great game though! Ancient mystical China, huzzah!



The sun goes down and the sky reddens, pain grows sharp.
light dwindles. Then is evening
when jasmine flowers open, the deluded say.
But evening is the great brightening dawn
when crested cocks crow all through the tall city
and evening is the whole day
for those without their lovers

This is pretty odd. I've heard many people talk about the game's length and either I was abnormally slow/terrible at combat (I liked jumping over their heads and dodging a lot) or the game really is ~39 hours long and everyone else is doing it wrong .

My first playthrough took roughly 42 hours and the second took 40, so if you're playing slowly you're not alone at least. I usually tend to roam around a lot an explore all areas of a game enjoying the visuals and looking for every side quest I can find. I sometimes also reload certain scenes to see what different outcomes you can get depending on your choices. I guess that could slow the playing down a bit.

I'm getting a Dell XPS laptop with Vista on it (almost enough saved, ). Will JE run on it, or like Kotor will it have some snags and irritating problems that will need to be dealt with before running smoothly?

I found battles in Master mode pretty ok, with decent amounts of dodging for the heck of it Except the crazy battle in the arena's Gold division, when they throw everyone at you for the heck of it. I didn't have a levelled up weapons style to use on the elephant demon at the time, meh.

I'm regretting not seeing what the response to "A rendezvous with the Princess? How scandalous!" Maybe on my next play through Two Rivers, and parts of the Imperial City are really pretty!

For the demon, use your strongest weapon powered with Chi and Focus mode, the rest of the enemies are simple enough to defeat. I wish the Phoenix style was usable.

Phoenix style? What's that?:P Sounds cool though! Yeah, I managed to get through it and spent my subsequent level skill points on Crimson Tears. I love that style! Plus Jen Zi and Sky look cute wielding dual sabers together

It's the "style" the ninja-like opponent in the arena uses when you've nearly defeated her. She bangs her fist in the ground producing several clones of herself in a circle around the arena who you have to defeat as well.

Oh yeah, forgot about that one:P I just goggled when they did that. And then started regretting not levelling up Dire Flame enough immediately, heh.

What I regret about my first playthrough was all the points tossed into styles that I hardly used... Sigh.
