Permanent Links for The Darkness Jaded Project Files

I've had some requests for the project files for my unfinished Mara Jade singleplayer mission, The Darkness Jaded. For posterity, I've uploaded zip and 7zip archives of all the files to Amazon S3.

Java GOB reading/extracting code

I posted my Java code for extracting files from GOBs. It works mostly flawlessly from what I can tell, except if a GOB is terribly corrupt. In that case, a general Exception is thrown (to be caught by you, the user). You can't do much from there except yell at the end user for supplying a bad GOB.

Not sure if anyone will find it useful, but it's there.

Oh, and Javadocs are included. It's JRE 1.4 and up compatible. I used 1.4 because I'm using GCJ in my project instead of the standard Java compiler, and GCJ is not yet 1.5 compatible. The only obsolete code is the use of untypesafe collections, an easy fix.

New effects download

There's a set of GOBs up for download which contain all the new weapon effects. The ones with the "NT" postfix are of the "new trilogy" or "prequel" style. They are, in my opinion, superior to the "original trilogy" (postfix "OT") styled effects. They do run slightly slower on older hardware, however, but the difference would be small even in a large firefight.

Just select NT or OT depending on the style you want. The repeater blasts come in blue or yellow as well. I recommend the blue (Dark Forces) style.

Try it out!

I put up a little GOB of the replacement effects I made this morning. In it are ther Bryar, E-11, Bowcaster and Repeater models. Check it out if you like.

New Effects

Right now I'm working on some new blaster effects. I'm using the rather traditional glowsaber method, except with more polygons. I feel that it is, overall, the cleanest and nicest looking method.
