Question Dark Forces Remake?

I was wondering if any one planning to make a remake of Dark Forces for Jedi Knight or Mysteries of the Sith. I was just wondering if someone would do it since I only have Jedi Knight and Mysteries of the Sith.

Your Friend,

There is a Dark Forces tc in the works for JK but I doubt it will ever see the light of day.

It's posiible!

Since I just recently got Dark forces I Decided to use jed to try a quicky conversion of the first level.
Well I got it to work, kind of. The textures, whatever DF uses as cogs, mission end and most 3dos weren't converted, so it was basicly a empty, blank level with no goal.

It did have enemys though! it converted the right ones, so stormtroopers were stormtroopers and not grans or something!

So it is possible, if you can convert every thing, and make sure it's put together right.

IIRC the DF TC was for MotS.

It's too bad they seem dead; DF in the MotS engine would rock, but you'd need whole new 3dos/keys for the 3 Darktroopers (none of those walking boiler-pots that seemed so popular in the fan-made lvls).

Thanks. Doesn't look like they'll finish it though.

I played one such "Dark Forces TC" and all it was was the first level of DF (secbase) converted to JK. The scale was off, the texturing bad, and there were no working cogs or enemies that I could see.

It would be a nice project if done right. I believe you could convert (by hand) the sounds, textures, etc. You'd have to make new models for the enemies, or reskin pre-existing models to look like the new characters in DF, and you'd need to do the same for the weapons, etc.

It would be a lot of work, but if you like that sort of thing, it might be nice. The point being that it'd be better looking than DF, and could have multiplayer support.

Of course I'd rather see it professionally done by LEC or Raven, but they may not, so...

A remake of the secret base, Tak base, or the nar shadda levels for Mp would be cool.

Especially the Nar Shaddaa and Coruscant levels. I 've seen only one good Coruscant level (fan-made, natch), and it was still homm-infested and buggy with fps of about 6.

Most of the User-made Coruscant lvls have half-decent architecture, but lousy matting. Why would the luxurious Imperial Centre be finished in burnished steel and gunmetal grey? Let's see some marble, and obsidian, and gold!

I've forgotten the URL for the DF TC, can anybody help Gabrobot?

Cool Guy

Can you say "old thread?" :rolleyess

Anyone still looking for a half-decent DF remake, get thee to Massassi and check this out.

It's based on the first level of DF, as seen in the graphic novel Rebel Agent.

It's dazzlingly good; hopefully the author will feel compelled to lend his obvious talents to an ongoing DF project.
