Thread: Dark Forces for MotS

  1. #1

    Dark Forces for MotS

    Hey everyone!

    I have decided to embark on a project to remake Dark Forces (1995) ENTIRELY in Mysteries of the Sith (1998). Sure, MotS is already three years old, but it's still technically more advanced than DF itself. And I just read up on those 16-bit MATs, too. Hooray, no more CMPs!

    In order to do a project of such magnitude, I have to remake DF's cutscenes in MotS (word is that it's something that must be done if you're planning to fully recreate a game that has cutscenes). After all, cutscenes are what DF is all about!

    But I can't do it alone.

    I am not proficient at making cutscenes (or anything, really), so I need to recruit crew for this project.

    First, I need to know all this:

    1) As this question is clearly the most obvious one to start this round of burning hot game remaking related questions with, what do I need in order to do a launcher EXE for the project? It'd have to be similar to the one in MotS, where you can start the game, open the readme, ride the snake with Jimmy Tango's Fatbusters and so forth... I seem to recall One Rebel's Sacrifice having a custom launcher like that. Any ideas? Clues? Booze?

    2) ... Did I mention the cutscenes?

    3) How can I convert all of DF's walls and skies into MotS .MATs, so I could use them in the thing.

    4) I am not good at making cutscenes, so I'm going to need help with that. Anyone?

    5) How can I make Kyle look the way he does in Dark Forces? Surely this can't be a process that involves any kind of image editing in a photo editor for pictures, and converting those edited texture-picture-images to Matt Format?

    Oh, and I need to make Kyle look like Jan too.

    6) Oh yeah, I need to be able to convert the other textures (aside from walls and skies) into MotS .MATs as well. How?

    I mean, who will do it for me?

    I mean, how will someone do it for me?

    7) How can I make Jabba the Hutt appear as a hologram in Jabba the Hutt's ship level?

    Where can I get Jabba the Hutt for the level to begin with?

    Where does Jabba the Hutt live?

    Anyway, I need the hologram Jabba for the opening cutscene of the Jabba the Hutt's personal space yacht level. Or hey, shoot the moon, the ending cutscene of the Nar Shaddaa level!

    8) By the way, I don't know how to make cutscenes, who will make them for me?

    9) How to convert the levels from Dark Forces into MotS? Surely this is not illegal to begin with, and wouldn't involve any additional work in JED at all. Just one click -> one perfectly playable DF-level fully
    converted into MotS. Right?

    But still, it'd be far easier to do a precise conversion like this instead of, what, recreating the Dark Forces levels from scratch!?

    10) Cutscenes cutscenes cutscenes cutscenes cutscensc tuscens cutscences cutscens

    That is all this time.

    Answer me if you can. RUN. SAVE YOURSELF.

    Fast GameRr, 16/M/Secret Base 8)



    [EDIT] WAIT GUYS HOLD ON TO YOUR BEE'S KNEES' COOL' BEA'NS AND H0T P0CKETS how to get Crix Madine, Rom Mohc and all the Dark Troopers!? How to get all the DF weapons!!!???



    [EDIT] [EDIT] TO GET THEM IN DARK FORCES!

    To get them into Dark Forces is what I meant!

    I recommend the Gorc engine.

    This is a really good idea for a TC. I'd like to join the team, even though I'm already working on a Ninja Turtles TC and a Duke Nukem TC. Although I'm not very good with cogs or modelings, I do know photoshop (for textures) and I can build websites. Let me know if you don't already have one. It could be useful for finding more people to help us. I can also make a multiplayer level with JKEdit.

    I've always found it nice (for me) that the Main Editing Forum was never pruned, so my first post will always be available for as long there's gonna be a Massassi.

    Nah, use Sith 2. It's one version better than Gorc!

    you may enjoy some of my other works such as

    ☭ retail therapy ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    or

    6th generation cashier

    or

    woman holding child during bombing

    be careful if you investigate further because my tracks '处女 glen at the k i o s k 悲' and 't r u m p w a v e - w i n n e r s therapy' are definitely NSFW


    EDIT:But let's not let that distract from the fact that I have currently done all of the work on the TC. Get in gear FGR

    These tunes almost make me feel like digging up the most "coherent" version of Dark Forces for MotS (which had like 25% of the first level completed), changing it into a JK project, putting those Spook-tunes in as background music, adding conc-armed stormtroopers AND the Ewok from Tales of a Mercenary 2 (armed with a conc) spawning everywhere in the level. Conc firing sound will be replaced with a fart sound of course.

    But alas. It's over. Finito! Or what the Norwegians call fi-ni-tos.

    For those who can't abide by this tease, I had a listen for you, and can now as a public service relay more or less what this is:

    Doesn't he already send you random MP3s of his farts on a bi-weekly basis?

    Those aren't farts, those are the cries of the Proletariat.

    Sometimes I can't separate between the two, do you know that?

    Their wails sound like farts because they have boots on their faces.

    Let me eat a bunch of garbage and get out my field recording rig.

    Yeah, gbk... I wish I had known that before I hired you to make cogz0rz for this project, and you sent me 22 minutes of a guy running down a tunnel.

    It gave me nightmares!

    I mean, maybe if he were in a motorized wheelchair you'd have some sense of sympathy for him.

    It tested well.

    This whole forum feels a lot like the bar in that show.

    Maybe it's the color scheme.
