I just hit a milestone in the development of this mod :)

 

All new and edited scenes are done (and working as far as I can tell). Some of those still need to be tested to make sure they're actually doing what they're supposed to do, but having them all ingame is a great feeling.

 

This may sound as if the mod was as good as done, but it certainly is not. I still need to rewrite the entire companion dialog and some of the other dialog I've written before simply because I either didn't really captured the way Juhani speaks or because it's lacking character development. I have some cool ideas for that, but planing and writing all of this will take time :)

 

I still have 1.5 weeks until my lectures start and I want to get as much as possible done in that time, since I don't know how much I can work on the mod afterwards. We'll see what happens :)

I really like the idea. I just wish the dialogue seemed more realistic, even if that's just making their mouths move as they talk. What I am sure would work is if you said something like "if you rejoin the temple, you could grow your dark power in secret." I know she say "that's true" in another dialogue on the ship. You could the add make her responds "that's true" ...(continue with the diologe as if you save her which is something like( "very well I shall return to the enclave at once." All this combine with mouths moving would be slick as all get out!:)

Glad you like it :)

 

Now, if you reread my original post in this thread you'll notice how I state that the Dantooine scene is done except for voice overs and lipsync. Those certainly will be added to the mod but as the very last thing once everything is working properly. But I won't use spliced dialogue as you suggested. I originally tried that and it might work for the Dantooine scene but overall there are just way too many new lines for this to work in even a semi decent way. I'll have to find a voice actree for Juhani instead (see the rest of the thread).

I can probably find you someone to voice Belaya, if you still need a VA for her. For Juhani, it seems you still haven't found a VA for her. I know someone who would be willing to rerecord all of Juhani's lines, making everything seamless with your mod, but she doesn't sound all that much like the original VA, so it would be a bit jarring. It might work if you get stuck, though.

You probably want to hold off with voice actor suggestions until he's completely done with the dialogue and gets feedback that it works from a objective group of play testers. You see, you'll find that if it's a large part you will only have basically one shot to give them the script. When you have hundreds of lines like Juhani has, you don't have opportunities for do-overs.

ahah This is great!! Have you thought about the DS ending yet? When she says, "don't follow this dark path.. blah blah blah jedi are nicer be them." Mabye change that dialogue too!?  So it would be like Juhani +bastila+revan against poor old Jolee Bindo?? AHAHAH He'd be screwed!

Sith Holocron is right. I need to make sure every line is final before contacting actors since there will be many many lines and this requires me to write them and have them tested by several people first. And this will take at least a few months. But once I'm there I might come back to your suggestions :)

 

 

@jc2: Yes, both the DS and the LS ending have new outcomes depending on Juhanis stance. I did all the necessary scenes and from this point of view the mod is done. For more on what's left to be done read this post.

Still hyped! Would this mod be compatible with other Juhani reskins? I'm not a huge fan of Juhani reskins but there is one I like. 

Chainz.2da has a mod on this site called Juhani's Dark Robe, which looks beautiful and would be nice to have along with this one.

Could it be compatible? Do they replace each other?

I don't know. Depends on how his mod works. If it edits Juhanis line in the 2da file it should work, if it edits Juhanis .utc files it won't.

Confirmed.

 

I have a copy here, and it uses UTC files and doesn't use the TSLPatcher.

 

So, it probably isn't compatible.

Okay thanks. I'll take this mod over that one any day. No offense to the modder of the Dark Juhani Robe.

It's been a while but I finally continued working on this mod :D

 

No major advances yet, but I wrote the general outline for dark side Juhani's party member dialog. It's basically the same as the original Juhani dialog with a few additions for new possible situations. Here's a screenshot, maybe you can spot some hints of what you can expect (although I made the spoiler parts unreadable ;) )

 

Attached File  DSJ_Dialog.jpg   611.7KB   3 downloads

 

Now I just need to write all of that stuff... And to make things more interesting I will also implement a system that will adapt Juhanis reactions to how far she has fallen to the dark side. Technically that's no problem but it will make writing the dialog even more complicated.

 

That's it for now. Not much, I know, but I wanted to let you know that I'm back working on this mod.

This sounds awesome. It would be cool to have a dark side Jedi in the crew. As it is, my ds Revan mostly tends to have Canderous and HK47 as his party.

Not really :(

 

I did get some dialog done, but then I ended up focusing on the TSL Backdrops to get those out of the way. But now that they are, I intend to focus on getting this done.

Thanks for your interest :)

Hey Kexikus, thanks for the awesome work on this mod (and all the others). I know you're incredibly busy, but do you have an outline of the release date for the mod or is just going to happen when it happens? 

 

Thanks for all the hard work!

It's done when it's done, yes. I'm making good progress to having the mod in a fully playable state but even then it will still take a while for it to be actually done, so no promises on release dates.

It's dangerous to go into a WIP thread alone. Here, take this:

Ha, I figured. I just know some modders take the attitude "I will have it out by X date or I will kill myself" and others take the attitude "It's a labor of love and I will take the time that I need for it." 

 

Once again, thanks for all the hard work
