    Oh, alright then. XD Well if you ever want to watch fights with giant mechsuits, then Gundam would be one of the more obvious choices. I can only really recommend Gundam SEED and Gundam 00 though, since those are the ones I've watched.
    If you want some mind games though, Death Note and Code Geass are popular choices. Code Geass has mecha and special eye powers. Death Note is somewhat supernatural but the focus is a criminal mastermind against the world's greatest detective.

    I've actually never heard of Autodesk Pro until now. I only ever hear about Maya or 3Ds Max, or Blender. XD

    I'm all for it, I wonder if there are any Republic Commando models for UT.Well Marietta? :D

    Well, I literally don't have the funds to get it (nor is it available at a local store right now, I've checked), but if neither of you object to me going pirate on it, I'm game (assuming it works). XD;

    Cool! I'll check those out soon.

    I guess pirating is the only way for me to go as well so I'll do just that, I'll update you guys once I have it fully functional.

    Great. I can't afford to play online (it eats my limited bandwidth away quite fast :( ), and you two can't find the game anywhere. Wonderful.  :p

    I don't mind. You can go pirate on me any time you want. I can go ninja on you in return if you'd like.

    [​IMG]  ;)

    I'm not sure if pirated copies of the game would allow online play, since illegal copies are usually cracked and / or somehow otherwise modified to fool and / or bypass legitimacy check and allow offline playing, but at the same time those same cracks & modifications break online compatibility, which results in servers giving you a proverbial middle finger when you try to connect to them.

    Friend of mine here used to play Jedi Academy online with a... err... not very legal copy of the game, and it worked fine on every server he visited, while tons of other people reported getting this error message when trying to play online with a pirated copy of the game:

    [​IMG]

    I once created my own server for the game called F.E.A.R., just to see if it works. It showed up on the online list of active servers, so I had the same friend here try to connect to it with his (also) not very legal copy of the game *cough*. It didn't work, though.

    So, even if you two manage to get the game working offline, there's no guarantee it will work online, I'm afraid.  :/

    Look on the bright side. Worst case scenario - you'll be limited to playing it offline with bots. You should also be able to use most, if not all of the mods & stuff, too.  :)

    I wish someone would make Moldy Crow vehicle model for UT2004. I think it would fit great into the whole UT universe with its design.

    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]

    I know Ashura made one for Jedi Academy, but the textures are a wee bit crappy. :p

    Also - TARDIS vehicle model.

    [​IMG]

    Would go great with that Doctor model from the video. Would be unarmed, but with a lot of health, thus harmless (unless you crush someone with it), but difficult to destroy. Not to mention the geek effect. :D

    Say, do you know anything about setting up a small home server for Jedi Academy in combination with JA+ mod? I've been fiddling around with server.cfg file in japlus folder. I figured out most of the important stuff, but I can't seem to find a way to set up a custom map cycle list. I can change the default starting map, and the game automatically cycles through all available maps I have in my base folder, but I'd like to know how to specify which maps will be used and which ones will be skipped, if possible. :unsure:

    Also, is there a way to specify which bots will be added to the game when the number of human players drops below minimum? The game seems to add them on random, and I don't see any option to change that. :unsure:

    I'm not entirely sure how to do that, I'm mainly a sp gamer not a mp player when it comes to jka, but I think Merek will know how to solve your problem. :)

    It's not really important, though. I'm just experimenting with it for now to see how it's done, in case I get my hands on another copy of the game (why, oh why didn't I buy it when I saw a single copy at the store once... [​IMG]), so I can get a friend of mine here to play with me in LAN. :)

    Perhaps I could use my discs to make ISO images and install the game on my second computer. I wonder if that would trigger anti-piracy protection, though. *cough*

    /plzdunsuemegeorgeimnotapirate :p

    I actually so happen to have the isos I would give them to you, but my google drive seems to not load today so I'll give them to you when I can.

    Shall I recommend any mods?

    You have JA on ISO files? :uy:



    Might I inquire as to where you got them from, good sir, hmm?  ;)

    I can make the files myself, but until I give them a try, I won't know if the game will give me CL_ParsePacketEntities error in LAN. Have you ever played with your ISOs online, or at least in LAN?

    Sure. :)

    Quick update: I have the game downloaded but haven't installed or tested. No available break from having a life until September, unfortunately.

    I already have some of those mods. I got a bunch of skins and maps sitting on my external hard drive that I downloaded, figuring I might use them sometime, but so far haven't even touched most of them. Oh my. :p

    Not sure what I'm going to do with those ISO files. I'd have to go to someone else's computer to download them, and it'd be a bit rude of me to constantly bug my neighbors here to let me use their computer. :/ Maybe Marietta could use them. :)

    In any case, you might wanna remove the link to the ISO files you posted, since technically, what we're doing here ain't very legal, and there's a rule here against illegal activities. Not sure if you've read the rules. They seem to be a bit difficult to find. :unsure:

    http://offtopichut.com/page/rules

    See what I mean? Personally, I don't mind, but OTH (and Mikey as the owner) can get in trouble with the law, if someone blows a whistle on us. :/  Copyright law sucks, huh?  :(

    Yes, the circle is now complete. Well, it's an older circle, but it checks out.

    Link Termina.. I mean removed  :) .

    You got some very cool neighbors, if I went to my neighbors house and asked them to download the files, they would just think I'm some sort of hacker, (my neighbor is my Aunt too, which makes this sadder). I could email you the link if that would help?

    Yeah it does, it's what impedes progress, though it's there for reason.

    In better news have you heard of that Jko is being put into the unreal engine, and is going to be played as a movie?





    I contacted the authors and told them that they should be using better models, so I directed them to Jkhub, hopefully they don't see the darker side of Jkhub. :/

    Considering the fact they call me to solve their computer problems every time something happens, and me being too modest to ask for money (somehow, I feel like I don't deserve to be paid for something that comes so easily to me, like solving computer problems), you could say they owe me. ;) Still, I'd feel uncomfortable asking them to let me use their computer each time I need to download something huge. [​IMG]

    No need. I saved the link to my bookmarks.  ;)

    *waves hand*

    Lawyers, this isn't the post you're looking for. I may go about my business.

    [​IMG]

    :p

    Yeah, I've seen the thread over at JKHub. I'm so stoked for this. Jedi Outcast + Unreal engine = win.  :D

    Also - Jan's facial expression when Kyle says "Kyle Katarn - at your service", and then winks & grins - OMG! [​IMG] I don't know if it's intentional, but it's like she's thinking "oh give me a break" when she rolls her eyes. :p

    To tell you the truth, the more I lurk the place, the less bad it seems. All you have to do is ignore trolls & troublemakers and stay out of other people's arguments. Let them duke it out. :)

    Ceres (formerly known as kenoi) is the kind of person I'd like to have here on OTH. Active, fun, polite, respectful... Seems like a great guy / girl / whatever. Not sure if he / she would be interested in a non-gaming / non-modding community, though.  :)

    EDIT: Wait, now it's Cerez[​IMG]

    Lol I swear before I went to sleep his/her name was Ceres, I don't blame him though I tend to change my user icon as often I change my socks. 

    :smug:  Yeah I find it interesting how they manage to add details like that to the movie, which in turn makes the movie more, rich in humor, I think the guys over at Jkhub, should consider doing things like this for their Ja-enhanced mod, later on, that would make Jka way more fun to play, it would be a huge break from some of the bland dialogue we get from the game. 

    Yeah I'm not trying to say it's all bad, but the site has it's moments, for example: '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>

    And the argument get's seriously heated later on. :/

    I'm not sure if Quake 3 engine would allow for such details. Unreal engine is newer and much more flexible. Disney should just remake an entire Dark Forces / Jedi Knight series in Unreal engine. :)

    See, that's the kind of stuff that is best to avoid in wide arch. Participating in an e-drama is pointless. I said this, you said that, I didn't say that, you said it... blah blah blah... my ego is bigger than your ego... you suck... yadda yadda yadda... [​IMG]

    Now, where have you been for the past two days, hmm? ;)

    EDIT: Where have you disappeared to now? :unsure:

    Sorry I've been having Router problems for the past couple of weeks, and I'm not too sure if the problems are officially over.

    For some reason my router would not connect to the internet, but for whatever reason the other people in my house were able to connect (and they were not using 4G).

    I hope they do, but the chances of that seem to be a bit slim. I know 1313 seems to have some  hope now. I believe there was poll running around the internet, but I can't find it now.

    Router problems, huh? Yes, wireless connection can sometimes refuse to work properly (or to work at all) for no apparent reason. It usually helps to unplug the router from the power socket and plug it back in. Doesn't help always, though. :/

    Sooo, whose Internet connection are you piggybacking on now, hmm? ;)

    My parents mainly because I live at home, but I have no idea how I will survive after I get kicked out for college.

    Nice! Though as a avid SW fan I have to say that the Mando helmet is being mistreated and it must immediately be sent to me for..uh reasons :ninja: .

    I actually tried to turn on and off a couple times, but that didn't seem to work it just kicks back to life for some reason.

    Wi-fi signal can be obstructed by various obstacles. Metal inside a reinforced concrete walls can block the signal, or at least reduce its maximal range. If you're standing next to a router with the device you're using to connect to the Internet, like a mobile phone, and it's still not working properly, there's a good chance you'll need a new router, assuming the problem isn't in the device itself, of course.

    What are you using to go online via the wireless connection? Just your mobile phone or the computer too? :)
