but at least we have JA src code and JO src code release as open source since earlier today. we can easily as a community make something good out of it.

Seconded.

I made a silly little program called Dragon, which is an animation tool for the GLA format, used in Jedi Outcast, Jedi Academy and Krakatoa.

holy crap, this thread blew my mind. i cant believe lucasarts is finished. that hurts.

but the JKA source code going public is pretty awesome; its just too bad that its probably too late for most of the big-name modders to care. If they do, this could mean a big boom in the JKA modding community... if not, JKA will continue to die.

...but now we wont have lucasarts to make new games for us all in all, emotions weighed on the scale of logic and practicality, i am more sad about this than happy.

this part especially made me glum:
"That said, there were good Star Wars games over the years, including the X-Wing series, Jedi Knight/Dark Forces series, Knights of the Old Republic, Rogue Squadron, Battlefront, and others. The future of these franchises is obviously now probably dim."
the future of the Battlefront series is dim? that isnt something i ever wanted to hear.
