    very cool, especially if it's supposed to be 'very rough'
    granted, at the time of the explosion another cue might fit
    but otherwise, very cool


    one very interesting thing for me are the original English voices - so far I only knew the German version of the game (which, I think, has a far better translation and dub than the movies [face_frustrated])

    Very awesome clips. Excellent editing work. I would love to see the whole thing played out like in a big movie. It would be a nice addition to my Star Wars movie collection. ;)

    Keep KOTOR 1 to one movie, then keep KOTOR 2 to another movie.

    Hello everyone!

    Happy Tuesday to all of you, I hope the week has started out great for all of you. Just wanted to have a little fun here and give a 'spoiler-leak' style preview of the KOTOR films I am currently working on, just for kicks. I hope you enjoy: :)

    As posted on eh.com (jk, get it? "mf.com"?... okay enough)... here are the important tidbits:

    *The entirety of the game will be split into three movies, with each runtime totalling under about 2 hours, since I do not have the capacity to burn dual layered dvds just yet. Gotta keep it under 120 min.

    *Episode 1: "Knights of the Old Republic" (tentative title) starts on the Endar Spire, takes us to Taris, obviously, then Dantooine... a special surprise... and then comes to a thrilling conclusion on Kashykk. (Thanks to the advice from these boards). With the Wookie situation solved as its climax... The ending will be upbeat, similar to TPM and ANH. Even with a celebration of sorts. :)

    * The Yavin IV spaceport is the 'special surprise' in Ep1, for those who don't have X-Box Live or the PC version. The Rodian character that inhabits it will be modified slightly, with new subtitles, making him more of a wiser, old 'Yoda-when-he-was-quirky' style creature. He will also appear in 3.

    * Episode 2 looks to be the best of the trio. Starts on Tatooine, then moves to Korriban, and features the climax and big twist on the Leviathon as its cliffhanger ending. The twist revealed, Bastila missing, all hope seems lost for our heroes... or does it?

    * Episode 3, then opens with Manaan (which will focus mostly underwater), Yavin IV, then the Unknown World, and finally the Star Forge and the epic ending.

    * Juhani will not live past Dantooine. Sets up a huge failure for our hero Logan in the first film. It haunts him throughout the adventure.

    * Through editing, the main nemesis for each film goes something like this... Episode 1- Calo Nord (think Jango in Ep2 of the PT), Episode 2- Saul and Darth Bandon, and Episode 3, obviously... Malak (and Bastila).

    * BOTH endings will be seen. Lightside and Darkside. Though I will most likely go with the lightside ending as the story. BUT! Our hero will have a dream sequence that features not only the darkside ending, but a haunting vision of him killing Jolee, Carth, and forcing Zaalbar to kill Mission! This trilogy is to serve as a way to experience both sides of the story, years from now, without having to play it so much.

    * Episode 1 features Pod Racing. I know they say swoop racing, but I'll be using footage from SW:Racer Revenge to make the high stakes race on Taris more exciting. It looks like there'll be no time for pod racing on Tatooine or Manaan.

    * I will have no problem providing dvds to those who ask. Though legal issues worry me, I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. I will not do anything to get in trouble, if that means no dvds or online chapters, then sorry :(

    * Jolee is like our Obi-wan from ANH in Episode 1. And HK serves as a refreshing new character (like Lando from ESB) in Episode 2.

    That's about it for now. I'd like to get another clip online this week... but I have a lot of work going on right now with my job, so no promises. I hope everything has a good week. Take care!

    Dual layer what? You are saying the entire movie is 120 mins or 3 * 120 mins to me. Clarify for us non-video geeks.

    BOTH endings will be seen...blah..et all

    Great idea! Great way to show the dark side enging, with the dream and all.

    I will have no problem providing dvds to those who ask. Though legal issues worry me, ...blah.. et al

    I thought this would be a downloadable kinda thing when you first pitched the idea. Why not break it up into smaller episodes and make it downloadable?

    Legal issues do not worry me and I don't care about trouble, if there's anything I can do to help with distribution.

    One of the easiest ways to distribute it would be with a .torrent.

    Legal issues should be fine as long as your doing it non profit.

    Dual Layered DVDs are what mainstream movies are on. You might notice when a dvd plays a quick wierd freeze of sorts, lasting a half second... that is your dvd player reseting and playing the second layer. Which is how some dvds can cover whole 3 hour movies.

    My burner does not support dual layered dvd burns, SO... the total runtime PER dvd (so, per episode) must be under 120 minutes... so each episode will be about 117 minutes each.

    Hello, I am sorry to say that I have bought the rights to the Knights of the old republic movie from Mr Lucas. I cannot allow you to go on.

    I have big plans and a very awesome story planned. I have come up with a romantic horror-comedy for this type of movie because that is what everyone wants to see!!! This game story will not do, you have to stop so everyone can see the real movie.

    We threw away the original story because it is too complicated and noone understands it! The main story is now about how Revan one day vacuums his janitor spaceship and finds out how he must stop the aliens from invading the lower regions of his microwave oven!!

    Also there is already a scene with Bastila having sex completely naked and she does not have any clothes on!!

    He's actually a sock making fun of Uwe Boll, a director who makes crappy video game movies. There's nothing to worry about.

    From the redirected thread:

    Kaydon_Sentry: Here are two sequences from the pod race section of Episode 1... its REALLY dark, because I forgot to lighten up the brightness when condensing the files for this upload, but you can at least get a good idea of what it'll be like.
    Again, on anything but a mac it'll look way dark... the final output for the dvd is much crisper
    Just before the race and the first few seconds:

    http://members.aol.com/swamisd/startrace.mov

    Thrilling climax to the race:

    http://members.aol.com/swamisd/podrace.mov

    Pod race footage was used from "Star Wars: Racer Revenge" for the PS2. I color corrected it to match with KOTOR, and threw in a couple cool cockpit shots of Logan at the helm of his racer.


    Darth_Tynaus: Nice, not bad at all. This game really has me intrigued. I kind of like the idea of a Star Wars Lego game.

    Siths_Revenge: You'll get a chance to play one in a few months. I've seen pics of it. Looks sweet!

    Darth-Lando: Really cool!!! How did you get those cockpit shots?

    Fallen_Jedi21: Looks lik he stood Logan in front of the Ebon Hawk's turret ladder and took some shaky shots.

    Sith Magician: Cool, and the pod race works for better for drama than the swoop race.
    Are you going to animate the guys mouth at all?


    Dante_Glass: fantastic, deffently the right choice to go with the pod racing over KOTOR's swoop stuff.

    JediHobbit: very well done. I applaud your efforts and hope that they continue in such a high-quality manner.

    Jedi-Anakin-Solo: Awesome!

    I love idea of a pod race so much more than a swoop race. Very exciting race footage.

    Kaydon, your work thus far has been absolutely incredible! :cool: I can't wait to see the completed films!

    And yes, I too couldn't load the Endar Spire clip.
    But what I've seen thus far is mind blowing. :D
