    Just wanted to show you what Jedi Outcast looked like on the following system configuration (Don't worry, this isn't mine, but the Games Forum Moderator's machine):

    Pentium II 300 MHz
    ATI Rage Pro 4 MB

    http://www.hansen.net.nz/images/shot0000.jpg
    http://www.hansen.net.nz/images/shot0001.jpg
    http://www.hansen.net.nz/images/shot0002.jpg
    http://www.hansen.net.nz/images/shot0004.jpg
    http://www.hansen.net.nz/images/shot0006.jpg


    Nothing beats the clouds in shot0004.jpg :D Is the Rage Pro's OpenGL ICD that bad? I couldn't believe what I was seeing.

    Then he did some tweaking thanks to a guide out there <http://www.3dspotlight.com/tweaks/jedioutcast/index.shtml>:

    http://www.hansen.net.nz/images/shot0008.jpg
    http://www.hansen.net.nz/images/shot0009.jpg
    http://www.hansen.net.nz/images/shot0010.jpg

    It's still like a 4-bit color version of Jedi Outcast. Pretty funny.

    That's what happens when you use an unsupported card that "barely" supports OpenGL. Erg... That doesn't look good at all. I'm impressed it works at all.

    Three cheers for my favorite tweaking guide!

    Yeah, on the lowest detail settings you get Jedi Knight 1! It's like two, two, two games in one! ;)

    ... and with the matching framerate of 2 fps on systems like that, no wonder it's the number one game! :D

    Exactly why we don't support such low spec systems :)

    Indeed. Pushing 40, looking after the Games forum. Kids not allowing you to have a system that is l33t. What a terrible life.

    Pensions just don't give the elderly enough flexibility these days. About all Jp can do is buy some bread to feed the ducks. :(

    lol, barns.

    I don't think upgrading his computer would help any, he'd need one of those monitor magnifiers just to make out the characters.

    Poor Grampa. :(

    Sob.

    You don't miss what you never had. Upgrade is imminent (well next 4 to 6 months).

    On the upside;

    1. The lack of playability gives me more time for my JO skinning projects.

    2. I'm seeing AOTC in 2 days. Hah! Now you can all cry.

    Because, barns I'm old. Dunno if these bones will last another 2 weeks.

    I had a choice between seeing AOTC early or flying to disneyland.

    I'd like to see these wonderful skins. If he can't even use ModView with his crap system, how can he make sure the skins are perfect?

    No, I am not volunteering to help you, Mr. Jerk Seeing Episode II Early, But Still Has a Computer That My Dog Wouldn't Even Use.
