Better Game Effects - File Description  

I always like modís that change the weapons effects in JKA. After playing the game for years you do tend to get a bit bored of the Base JKA effects after a while and want to try something new. Here we have a mod that changes various game effects, including some of the projectile effects for the weapons, the saber blades, and also some new sounds.

First off, it is easy to see that the saber blades have been changed; they now look much more like the ones in Episode 3, longer, thicker and pointier (careful, you might poke someoneís eye out with that thing! wink). The saber also has loads of new sounds, which sound like they may have come from the original Jedi Knight game. Personally whilst they donít sound quite like the movie sabers, I do prefer these changes since they sound much more deadly and visceral.

The projectile effects for some of the weapons have also been changed. The Bowcaster now fires red bolts as it does in the films, instead of the traditional green that it has been in the Jedi Knight games and the repeater also fires red blaster bolts instead of the small round white bolts it fired before. Personally I prefer the red blaster bolts that the repeater now fires, I think they fit better with the weapon somehow. But thatís just me.

There have also been some changes to the force lightning, saber lock and saber deflection effects, though in my limited time testing the mod I wasnít able to try out all the new effects.

One nice feature though was the new splash screen that displays when the game first loads and also when a map loads, I much prefer this new one to the Base JKA one, it looks great! big grin Added to that there is also a new background for the drop down console.

All in all this is a cool mod here, and a welcome addition to the library of effects modís that we have here on the site. If you guys like the look of the mod from the screenshots below, be sure to give it a download!

Not to be a total d-bag, but what's with the screens? 2 don't show anything at all to do with the mod, one's a loading screen, another is a console shot with some error messages. There's like 4 shots of the ugly sabers, without much of any of their sprite effects. One shot of the lightning which I don't really seem to see a whole lot of difference in, and no shots of the repeater or bowcaster.

On a scale from 1-10, where 1is "this mod is probably worth our time" and 10 being "this mod is probably horse manure" I'm giving this an 11 just off the screens. Sorry, hope you didn't put a whole lot of time into this, because I'd rather be bored with base JKA effects and all than even dare try this out. You might want to take some more compelling screens for this. Just my humble advice.

Actually there isn't that much difference. I'd like to properly use Revan's quote above 'what have you done to jk3!?' because I don't see a lot of 'better', especially as the screenshots really do not do this mods potential (if any, haven't tried it out) any justice.

Oh and for your informtion Polter, Stormtroopers usually by default in this game shoot red laser bolts.

You should download the mod and try it before judging it. The screenshots alone dont show the full extent of the changes. it does noticeably change quite a few things!

Thing is, the screens are supposed to be enough for us to be attracted to download it, they don't show much even if they're supposed to.

Is it just me, or do those lightsabres seem... too long, even when compared to the movie blades? They're like, taller than the person holding it... just looks odd.
