August 7th, 2001 - I'm off to QuakeCon. I'll be showing SoF2
at the Activision booth all weekend with guest appearances by
Rick Johnson, Brian Raffel and Jim Hughes. Hopefully I'll
actually get to SEE some of the events going on.

As it turns out, LucasArts WILL be showing Jedi Knight 2 at
QuakeCon. It sounds like it will be done in hour-long
presentation format in one of the meeting rooms there several
times over the course of the event. Sorry...no floor demo or
hands-on this time around. But, the game will be there in all
of its glory with plenty of LucasArts/Raven/Activision folks
to answer your questions.

See you there...

duh!
I just posted a new topic without seeing yours
I deleted it

Of course I wont go, but I have hopes that well get some intersting information from that show, from the previews so far, It looks like the game is shaping great, so there will be lots of people trying to get a review.
Hopefully we get some new pics (preferably using weapons ) and maybe more details about weapons, force powers and mp modes

Great that they're doing a presentation and all, but it really is too bad LEC couldn't decide about presenting until just a day before the convention. I would probably have flown down to Mesquite to see it if I could get a decent 30-day advance airfair.

I honestly would have too... It kinda bugs me they didn't announce this earlier. It's closed door, but we're working on getting a reporter inside.

Try to understand that QuakeCon is a completely foreign event to LucasArts. They've never shown anything there, and as far as they understood, it was just an annual LAN party. Hence it took them a while to warm up to the idea. Hopefully you guys will still get the scoop!

Well, I'm glad they (LucasArts) warmed up to the idea... even if it was at the last minute...

I'm not going... no time and no money...

I would like to see a nice "in depth" report though!

God.. I have to drink less coffee... look at all those stupid smilies...


and BAM another one...

I did the same thing, digl.

And I would have considered it, since it's only in Texas I believe, not very far from Florida. Ultimately I doubt I would have gone, especially with school starting pretty much the next day.

Vertigon: Heh, we honestly heard that same thing: that LEC thought it was a LAN party. It's funny to hear someone else confirm it.

I don't expect LEC to be Quake pros, but I just assumed JKII would give them an excuse to walk in with their heads high.

It'll be interesting to see what happens with JKII, but now I'm hearing it is the same build from E3. If that's the case, I'd be more interesting in hearing what news Raven plans on releasing... if anything.

(Someone needs to confirm/deny these Q4 rumors ... they are going to begin taking over these forums at the rate they're growing :rolleyes

Apparently JKII was shown at something called Activate within the past week or two. I guess Activate is some European press showing or something? Anybody heard anything come out of that?

LEC has nothing to do with Attack of the Clones, and GL has pretty much no influence on the games, only his licensing company and that fact that LEC is his. He didn't tell them to go to QuakeCon in the last second.

Would you rather have them make more demos or would you rather have them finishing the game?

I'd rather have them tell us ahead of time about the demo, make the presentation, and then get back to working on the game.

In any case, Raven were originally going to QuakeCon to present Soldier O' Fortune II, not Jedi Outcast. So, diverting staff resource for that purpose was going to happen, Jedi Outcast demo or not.

I'm glad LEC decided to go ahead with the demo at Quakecon. Get noticed by the Quake community.

I would like to go, but QuakeCon is a long, long walk from where I am.

The actual act of attending Quakecon and demoing the product isn't what I'm talking about. In fact, I don't even think the guys who are going are on JK2 anyway... The big time-eater when you make a new build for public demonstration is all the work it takes to get everything in order. Raven has to find a good point to lockdown the code, get together the assets, burn a test CD, and test the features that will be shown. Even then, they run the risk of crashes (which are very bad at a public showing) if they try running it on a machine they hadn't tested on previously. That's a lot of effort that isn't spent making the game better. I imagine that using the E3 build was the best way to show the game at a small event like Quakecon (in comparison to E3).

From the .plan, it sounds like Hoekstra is diverting at least some of his attention from JKO. Probably a good thing though, to publicize the product.
