Some of the user maps seem a bit random. I'm surprised more Star Wars themed levels didn't make the cut like Hoth or AT AT Walker.

what a novel and unique idea!
So you're volunteering to make an entire episode?



Because the call went out years ago for mappers and nobody answered.

No, I simply said I was surprised all the existing Star Wars themed maps weren't included, that's all.

Many maps are released with a clause saying you’re not allowed to modify them. Trooper Dan would be going against the mappers’ wishes by including them in the mod.

the version 1 release had about 18 maps
the prebeta had over 40 maps.

there was a process of elimination - every star-wars themed map that we could think of was considered at one point in time and discarded for various reasons.

Hoth is a pretty weak map. At-At was too short, had a very limited arsenal, and need to be modified - which we didn't have the author's permission

This. Except for Boba Fett, which is the first map of the Darth Nukem episode. We would be happy to release an episode that included new maps specifically made for the mod.

recommended -yes.

as a non-official satellite person to the project, my opinion is:

You can try r7657 and report any problems, if you like.

The problems won't be fixed, but at least we'll know if it works or not.

The only problem I'm aware of with the most recent snapshot is that you can't jump into certain vents (as reported here). For example, the vent in E2L1 near the first keycard. This is due to a combination of the new clipping eduke code and the reduced player run speed in Duke Forces.

it's too bad you can't alter a sector's floor/ceiling level through maphacks :P

You can get in those vents with the newer snapshots, but you have to spam the crouch button as soon as you jump & it may take numerous tries

Having to spam crouch in order to jump into an area is quite ironic, considering the hit detection changes were meant to fix bugs that were induced by spamming crouch.

I tried to make people care about this issue in my report by pointing out that this can also happen in unmodified vanilla Duke -- all you have to do is turn off sprinting. But because everyone plays with CAPSLOCK run on all the time, I guess nobody cares.

and that's why the dev's aren't going to do anything about it - they'll simply tell you to change your modified walk/run speed

Enjoying this mod a bunch, i've got only one pet peeve about it so far. so the guide says to increase my force ability pool (Max force power) I need to complete episode 4 how does that move over into the next episode?

Secondly i can't seem to get the shrinker item to work i was on Darth Burger and i couldn't use it to get through the small vent in the bathroom.

Thirdly and this one isn't horribly important as it's only on one map the star wars weapons aside from the explosives don't seem to work very well as duke weapons hitting buttons and destroying those annoying speakers in shop-n-bag. minor detail.


other than that I only have one suggestion: Can we get a Togruta replacment for the asian babe instead of the twi'lek dancer? so she matches up with the poster?

This may be just me but the dancers faces look downscaled or something as they are very rough and blurry, was this intended?

Aside from that and using force powers while trying to press buttons, thanks for another great mod i'm really enjoying it

Haven't played far enough to recommend or suggest any maps.

The shrinier item is supposed to work like the medkit would or any other equippable item: you make sure it is the selected item and press the use inventory key. It was tested back in the day. Are you using the included snapshot?

I got the one from the mod DB link you sent me, for some reason it wasn't working, it worked before, but it didn't work during Darth burger for some reason.
