Concerning about the number of CDs...

http://www.bestbuy.com/software/Deta...023&e=11101805

I was just looking at BestBuy's website on Jedi Outcast...found:



Only 1 CD?

it's only 1 CD because the cutscenes aren't as large

But thinking about what the CD will contain:

some 24 single player missions
8? MP maps
all the guns....
all the models...
Ghoul 2...
Saber-stances script...
all the guns script...
force power script...
item pick-ups...
and cutscenes (I hope this is quality)...

all in 1 CD? 650MB - 700MB?

Most recent games such as RTCW are on one CD, however, that does not necessarily mean that Jedi Outcast will be on only 1 CD since no official word from LucasArts or Raven has "enlightened" us about this.

RtCW is kinda old now....however it's 1 CD

New games like Renegade (2 CDs) and Medal of Honor (2 CDs)...both of them don't have real-life cutscenes...about 20 missions (Renegade is significantly less missions) What took 2 CDs?!

A classic: Deus Ex: 1 CD, but Game of the Year...

MS Flight Simulator 2002: 3 CDs?!

Old ol' RTS game: Red Alert 2...2 CDs...however, AOE is only 1 CD...5 campaigns, each containing around 5-6 missions...

Now I'm really confused...

there are this things called cutscenes...
The JK style cutscenes use a lot of space

JO will be on 1 CD. What's the problem with it? There is no direct proportion (not sure if called like that in English) between the number of MBs the game is and the quality or the length of the game.
and If you are worried about LAN playing check the other thread someone mentioned. There's no problem with it.

JK1 I know cuz of the cutscenes (basically short, but hi-quality movies) .... I was thinking about other games like MOHAA, Renegade...etc. Both have 2 CDs, NO CUTSCENE (at least not movie-quality)...about the same amount of missions as JK2...

More Enlightment Please?

Saberpro,

Whats the problem?

The game is one cd. Period. Deal with it.

Cut scenes are done with the in game engine via scripting so it doesnt take any HD space.

Just because its one cd doesnt mean the game wont be good.

Renegade is 2 cds. But look at it. What a waste of space. For all i care it looks and sound like it would fit on 5 floppy discs.
