    This is kind of embarrassing, but I'm playing Jedi Academy for the Xbox and I can't get my character to disengage his lightsaber. I know that it is an important thing to do later on. I can get it to disengage by going to a blaster weapon, but how do you do it while keeping the lightsaber in hand and remaining in 3rd person p.o.v.? Stupid simple question but it isn't in the book. I've looked. I'd appreciate any help and understand the teasing that may accompany it. Thanx.

    I also need JA help. I'm on Bakura, looking for the last bomb. I can't find it. :(

    I'm sure if you look [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=19951122#JK3JA]here[/link], there's a thread to post your question in. :)

    I don't know which bomb you mean so I'll give description of where they all are. There are two on the outside, both of them are on metal walkways at the ends of the entrance area (far left and far right). The other two are inside the building that is locked and needs a security key. Run around the building and you will eventually find the officer and take his key. He might be off to the side but he should be easy enough to see. Once inside, there are two bombs to take care of. When you are in the big room with the generator type things on the floor you need to jump to the next door to your right. In that room is a bomb. Then come back out and on the bottom level with the generators there is a bomb. Carefull. That one is gaurded by a sentry gun.

    Don't suppose you know how to disengage a lightsaber?

    There's no way to deactivate the saber once it's on. All you can do is switch to another weapon.

    That's not true, certainly not in my game anyway. All you do is push the number 1 key to active and deactivate.

    I'm on the sandworm stage and am on top a piece of wing that I can move once with Force Pull. The walkthrough says I need to keep moving it. But how? It doesn't budge after one Force Pull.

    If you want to deactivate your lightsaber and stay in first person view, then you can set the lightsaber to either the X, white, or black button. If you press the button you set the lightsaber to, it'll deactivate.

    There is no number 1 key on the X-box.

    As I recall, all you can do is pull it towards the main hull. Then you use it as a bridge to hop onto the other pieces of debris so as not to disturb the sand.

    You don't even need to do that. Use Force Speed, run to the part, then run to safety. Easy as pie.

    How do you set your lightsaber to X, black or white?

    I force speed sometimes (particulary for that tiny piece on the far side of the ship). But other times that sandworm is waiting right in my path for me.

    As for locking weapons or powers to the X, black or white keys, select them first using the d-pad and while they're graphic is onscreen, press and hold whichever of those 3 keys you want to set it to until you hear a beep.

    You can also do "Force Heal." Jadden turns the saber off while healing.

    I need some help.

    I'm on the level where I'm rescuing prisoners from the rancor. I've gotten all but one batch so far.

    It seems like the elevator on the first left after you come out of the bar is stuck. Is this just a glitch in the game? What can I do? I need to get up there.

    That sounds like a glitch to me, because that elevator works on mine.
