Post The future of this forum.........

Hey all,

I am wondering, what is the future of this board? The TPM game has been out for 2+ yrs now, and there is nothing to do. We have explored every trick, every level, and every nook and cranny we have found, and it was fun. But that was 2 yrs ago. The game has lost its zest, there are no updates, no mods, no new levels, and no multiplayer. We have asked all the unique questions we could and have given as many game tips as possible over this forum, so this is the question, when are we all just gonna give up this forum and let it die? There is nothing to do here anymore, nor anything to discuss about the game, sure, its still fun to play once in a while, but there's nothing to debate about anymore, so, whats your opinion on this?

Dan

Ari,

I can't argue with that kind of logic

There really is nothing more to do. I keep checking in from time to time because every once in a while, we stumble across someone who has bought the game for the first time, and it's fun (for me anyway) to answer their questions about quests, strategies etc.

LEC has just released a Lucasarts Archives version of TPM in a white box (for $15!) so people may start checking in asking again.

As far as future mods etc, there really won't be any. The mace.baf model is entertaining for all of about 10 minutes. The Darth Maul model is NOWHERE NEAR being finished, and I don't have time to work on it, especially since I am 99.5% certain that LEC wouldn't allow either of the models' release. Not to mention that I just found the multiplayer mod (LAN-only, no working lightsabers) that will NEVER see the light of day because it's so friggin' buggy.

All in all, I can completely understand the feeling that it's time to move on.

Zanzi,
You made me cry, this has always been my favorite board, and now I realize its dead, I realize another chapter has been closed in my life. When I first bough the game, I was but a young pre-teen, as the game dies, I realize I am a young adult. I am a very sentimental person, I hate seeing things end, even cool websites I visited only once. I hate LEC, I hate them and I hope they blow up for what they did to you and TPM Adventure. This is so sad.

Dead? This board isn't dead.... crippled... perhaps... but not dead.
As long as ppl keep posting here every now and then this place isn't dead.

There's always more things to discover. I fugured out how to do more things in this game than anyone I've heard of, and I still figure new things out.

You ever seen the thermal detonator near the door controls thingy (with the Neimodian) in level one? Or how too get it?

(The one thing I figured out that no one else has...I think )

Okay, in the Trade Federation ship (the first level), you have to blow up a generator to open a door. A Neimodian (protesting that the invasion wasn't his idea) is in the same room as the generator thingy. Several battle droids are quarding the door to that room. You can destroy them by pushing boxes on them. One box holds a full health powerup. The other holds a thermal detonator. But there's a trick to getting it. Do you know what I'm talking about yet? Or am I being too confusing?

No, I know what you're talking about, but I haven't played the game in a long time so I need to play it to answer your question. I'll try to get it done tonight.

Okay, I remember this one now. The thermal detonator doesn't actually touch the ground, it floats right in the middle of the box, so even when the box busts open, it's hard to get. The way I always did it was to push the box onto the elevator platform while it's down and grab the thermal detonator at the bottom.

*gasp* Exactly the same thing I did! (Figures... ) I found it by using the "perf" cheat code and saw it floating two feet down inside the FLOOR. I eventually figured out I could push it onto the elevator and when the elevator sank it would be right there in midair for me to grab

How did the "perf" code help you figure that out? I figured it out the same way I figured everything else out, I guess. Just sniffing around and feeling the rhythm of the game. Anything else you figured out that you want to ask about?

I used "perf" after I knocked the boxes down, and the wire frame image of the thermal detonator was below me inside the floor. I thought it was kind of strange.

Once, when I was playing the demo, I was really bored and ran in and out of the rooms outside the poison-gas-filled chamber (up to the first door that requires you push something) and somehow, when I used "i like to cheat" and tossed around thermal detonators (dangerous, yes I know ) I ended up with unlimited thermal detonators. I had to use up ALL the thermal detonators, toggle thru the weapons and a new thermal detonator---just one---would be there again. The symbol for chosen weapon at the bottom of the screen was a picture of a thermal detonator (as usual) but IT HAD NO NUMBER ON IT. It was blank. I could throw the detonator, toggle again and a new one would be there. Unfortunately however I could not find a way to replicate this incident, and when we got the full version of the game the saved game got deleted.

Have you ever encountered that bug and if so do you know how to replicate it?

Oh and another thing, on the first level you come upon some droid starfighters. One of them will shoot you until you get close. I was able to kill all the starfighters in the demo version. However in the PC version, even three thermal detonators leave them unscratched plus they take off really fast when you get too close. Have you been able to kill them?

No to the first one, but I havenít messed around with any of those kinds of cheat codes. I saw somewhere that they change your end ranking to Cheater, or some such thing, so I havenít bothered with it. As for the Droid Starfighters, yes you can kill them. However, I have not paid all that much attention to exactly how to do it. Thermal detonators do work, but maybe you have to stand further back or something. I know that the last time I played I got one of them and it was a couple quick thermal detonators that did it. Iíve gotten all of them in the past... and Iíve never played the demo version of the game.

Actually, you only get the "cheater" rating at the end if you use a cheat code to afect your health or increase your weapons. Any other codes, like happy, perf, slowmo, but i feel so good etcetera, do NOT affect your rating. Otherwise I wouldn't even consider using them.

I only used 'em in the demo because I was bored out of my mind.

I realize that. I just thought the "I like to cheat" code was one of them.

Yes, "i like to cheat" gives you a Cheater "X" rating at the end
