using the JK3 engine to make a "JK2 Remake"
Sounds more like a JK2 Mod for JKA.. it's a nice idea too but when you think about realising such a project and whether JK2 people will move to JKA (getting the game actually) - I think this is unlikely and JKA people will not play 1.02 and more unlikely 1.03/1.04 (since this is kinda jka already but nerfed) except we get a good mod there. Ofc we could make a ~100 mb version of JKA again.. but I would not bet on a success with it.
i dont want to JKA people to play this "remake" i want make it for JK2 1.02 / 1.03 people, and im planning to make only the MP version.
Better actually is a JKA MAP/GFX Engine mod for both JK2/JKA you know so we have all patch versions of JK2 and JKA community together haha Nah I don't think that will work so easily^^
i can change between games only using the command /cl_jk2 "1" and restarting the game, will load jk2... openJK is a mix game.
but.. i preffer using the JKA engine because have a lot of graphic & system improvements and fixes. and we have more options to play (using jk2 sp maps works fully, vehicles and npcs too, etc etc...), if i start to fix the JK2 things will take ages.... (to fix SP maps with workings npcs, and gameplay features...) i preffer to do the gameplay thing in JKA
I think connecting the jk2 community of all patch versions would be a huge win already and more likely to realise that's why 1.05 should be continued ;_; and yes maybe we can make a Star Wars LoL mod there which would be awesome and everyone would give it a try from outer space
my idea is to no see the diference... i dont want make a "mod for jkA" i want convert JKA to JK2... removing all JKA weird stuff and gameplay, leaving only 1.02 and 1.03 gameplay choosable.
