Desann's Apprentice

She's kickin' my ass! I've never been good at the 2D combat games (Mortal Combat, Street Fighter) and like those games, I suspect there's a certain skill to the button-mashing. I'm just jumping around, pulling a couple of Force moves and mouse button-mashing.

Any pointers?

Ok.

Don't mash buttons!

You automatically block most of the time when you aren't attacking. Althought you can parry, etc. in the sp game (and multi with patch) blocking is much more reliable. Higher defense lvls increase the area you can block and the speed at which you block.

Wait till she swings then push her. Tavion likes to jump, so push her in the air, she cannot defend against that. If you cannot face her with the saber, work her to the platform edge and push her off when she jumps.

Always face the her saber, not her.

As long as you use a clear strategy rather than random swinging you should be ok, I'm amazed you've got to that level just button bashing.

Follow Leagle if you want but I used evasive acrobatics combined with persistant force pulling (jumping to get angles that are harder for her to force-block) got her to the floor, and sabre throws to the head do the rest.

Do you have any explosives? Trip mines or det packs?

Drop those when she's chasing you and watch her go flying...

Forgot to mention acrobatics.

Pulling if you push/pull her to the ground, throw your saber and let it hover behind her, let it slice her up from behind as she picks herself up.

Your motha!

Yeah. I've known that I've been doing something wrong. Almost everytime I face an enemy, I take some damage. But, for the most part, yes; I've been beating every neo-Jedi with nothing but some decent button-mashing.

Do you guys use the F-keys to use Force moves? That's what I've been using and it's hard to multitask my fingers like that...

you should bind commonly used force powers to keys that are close to your fingers. it wastes too much time to scroll through your force and then hit "f".

I use right-mouse to move forward, ctrl for alt-fire, c to crouch I think... but right mouse to move forward works great cuzz you can move with one hand and leave the other for your force powers (which I left as defeault F keys)

My setup is this -

always run : switched on

left-mouse : primary fire
right-mouse : secondary fire
middle-mouse : light sabre (1 key)
scroll wheel : weapon select up and down
arrow keys : movement
right shift : jump
right ctrl : crouch
enter : use (for door switches etc)
space : stance

insert : previous force power
home : use force power
page up : next force power

delete : previous held item
end : use held item
page down : next held item

most used force powers on keypad
pad0 - pull
pad1 - push
pad2 - lightning
pad3 - grip
pad4 - mindtrick
pad. - speed

it works for me, I don't need to take my eyes off the screen.

my setup is almost the same.

up arrow- forward
left arrow- side step left
right arrow- side step right
back arrow- backward
enter- use
mouse 1- primary attack
mouse 2- jump
mouse 3- alt. fire
right ctrl- crouch
shift- run/walk
L- saber style
delet- push
insert- speed
home- grip
end- pull
page down- lightning
page up- drain
mouse scroll- scroll weapons
space- use held item


I like to keep commonly used keys close to my hand. this setup works pretty well for me.

Thumbs up LS Duels

As for me, I dusted of the 'ol MS Sidewinder Precision Pro joystick from the original JK and made good use of it. I still switched back to the mouse and keyboard for gun battles (esp. aiming that ten-loss), but nothin' beats the joystick in saber duels!

I have been told that my key configuration is weird (too the point where some people can't play with it)

I have a MS intelipoint optical mouse too, so I have extra buttons (woo). But my key are:

Right MB: Forward
Left MB: Fire
Middle MB: Alt-fire
Wheel Up: Next Weapon
Wheel Down: Last Weapon
Button 4: Force Heal
Button 5: Change Sabre Style

Strafe Right: C
Strafe Left: Z
Jump: S
Crouch: X
Back: ALT (people find this VERY cramped)
Use: Space

Use Bacta: V
Force Push: Q
Force Pull: A
Force Speed: W
Force Protect: E
Force Absorb: D
