Just started Outcast and I have to say it's not too bad. So far nothing new per say, but a nice change none the less. I'm looking forward to the multiplayer option. Game play is smooth as it's built on the Q3 engine.
The game is totally awesome!!! I've been playing MP so much I haven't even completed level 2 SP yet!! LOL
Folks, if you can afford the little bit extra get the collector's edition. It's a nice looking tin, comes with all three games in the series, but best of all is a miniature lightsabre-keychain. The sabre makes it worth it. Any SW fans I show it to just love it.
DAMN THE POST!! should be getting mine today. arrive already!!!
which means no sleep tonight
found this on theforce.net, might be interesting
Word started leaking out that there was a command of g_saberRealisticCombat in the game, that enables realistic combat (At least on enemies that die with one hit. We all know that one clean slice of a saber would cause any Sith to die, no matter how powerful he/she was.) and makes things a whole lot more brutal. Well, it is true. The steps for enabling this feature are:
Load Jedi Outcast Single Player.
Press [Shift]+[~] to open console.
Type "devmapall" in console and press [Enter].
Type "g_saberRealisticCombat 1" and press [Enter]. Note: 1 is used to enable functions, 0 to disable.
You should now have the ability to create a whole lot of visual pain for Stormtroopers and other weak enemies.
Also this was on there too
Darth Maul lightsaber!
Start your own server.
Pull down console, type in "devmap mapname" [mapname is the name of any map, ffa_deathstar for example].
Take out saber, and deactivate it by hitting 1 again.
In console, type /THE DESTROYER or \THEDESTROYER [one of them will work]
Please not that this will not work in single player. Both blades can hurt enemies and make marks on walls. The animations are the same for the single-bladed saber, so it looks like you slice yourself a lot.
Have any of you seen anything about a "Patch" which allows for limb chopping off and decapitation too!? Originally it was suppose to be in the game but then they removed the graphic stuff.
I think that would "add" to the game
Mine is due in tomorrow!
The saberrealisticcombat is great!!! I first heard of this when I entered the official forums, it was hiden somewhere but.....it rocks!!! It's a little like with Soldier Of Fortune where they used the Ghoul-system (you could should of somebodies arm, leg ,etc) but it's just somewhat more inaccurate. Also, you can only slice bodyparts with the Lightsaber and not with any of the other weapons.
