Improving the JA

As most of you know (or who know who I am), I'm pretty much a silent partner in the JA at this point, but that doesn't mean I don't care. So here's what I'm wondering... in the absence of a new Jedi Knight game (c'mon Lucasarts, hook us up!), what can we do to keep the JA alive and thriving? Do we expand into other games? Do we simply exist the way were are as a "family" and accept that the training part is diminished as the game fade away a bit (let's be honest, it's been over 3 years since JK:JA came out)? Let me know what you think and how we can keep this place alive and keep the awesomeness that's been around for almost 4 years going well into the future.

First..... I'm baaaack! Finally have internet at the house, though that may be short lived as I may be moving across country for a new job.

I've read much of this discussion, and there are some good ideas. Someone mentioned scheduling events on the servers and reminding us by email. I like that idea. Not only would some scheduled times help members know when to show up on the servers and not be alone, but emailing us would remind us to show up. There should be events for both games, JO and JA. I didn't play JO MP much when it was new as I didn't know about this place and I never felt at home on the public servers. If there are JO events I'll make an effort to be there, but it would be nice if there were some JO classes I could attend first.

As far as adding other games..... I haven't bought many new games and those that I have don't compare well with JO. JO is the only game I've played through the single player game more than once. Most newer games won't play on my current hardware. The newest game I own is SW Battlefront.

I would be all over that. Hell, I'd make a map for it.

I concur - and I have an Academy-style map for JK2 that I was working on a few months ago I could finish up (or give to someone to finish up) :)

It's kinda weird, but I miss the "good old days" of JA in a way that I have never missed college or high school.

Then again, I couldn't shoot lightning from my fingers when I was in high school. As far as you know.



Anyway, I think we should organize more in-depth community things. Is Teamspeak still as active as it used to be? Is it Ventrilo now (if not it should be damnit)?

Is IRC active? If not...

GET ON IRC!!

Some of my best times on the JA were in IRC/TeamSpeak!

I say we make jk4 rumors to boost moral!


Through my spies in the industry I have learnt that The Force Unleashed is a huge cover story and hoax being used to cover up the long anticipated return of the Almighty bearded one Kyle Katarn himself in Star Wars: Dark Forces: Jedi Knight 4 3/4: The Beard Will Always Strike Back. It will actually be a PC exlcusive and include a huge multiplayer mode filled with extras from the EU. As well as a long single player campain with a prologue set in the Knights of the Old Republic era.

>_>

man if that was real i would kill my self revive my self and buy the game faster than you could say :"OMG i cant beleive he killed, revived himseld and bought the frkin game!!!"


oh ya try i'd kill everyone revive everyone and have the game for everyone in a sec
