One Jar Jar coming up...
The biggest problem with Jar Jar is that he is the kind of guy (creature) whose heart is in the right place... if you were hanging off of a cliff with a rope, Jar Jar would never let the rope or you go... but he is such a... a... a... something that he would probably bungle the rescue and you would both die...

He is a menace to both sides...
I laugh Luxwana Troi, but Jar Jar is a weapon of mass destruction with a big heart... that will be fun to code... [:D][sm=00000289.gif][sm=00000280.gif]




Igard -> RE: SW Stuff (7/6/2012 7:24:17 PM)

Yeah, you can give him a couple of bad traits, poor speaker or tongue tied, but don't make him completely useless(even though he is).[:D]




ehsumrell1 -> RE: SW Stuff (7/6/2012 9:59:05 PM)

C'mon guys..... Ambassador Jar-Jar Binks!

See how that just rolls off the tongue! [:'(]




Igard -> RE: SW Stuff (7/6/2012 10:47:17 PM)

He could be a governor, but I'd go with Ambassador.

Put him on the farthest, most isolated colony on the map where he'll bug as few people as possible!




tjhkkr -> RE: SW Stuff (7/6/2012 10:56:15 PM)

If we are going to do this, we do it right...

The Evil Lord Darth Binks, obsessed with finding IGard's ale, has dispatched thousands of remote probes into the far reaches of space...

As if Mr Data wasn't enough!

Unless he is one of those remote probes.... [X(]

OH NO! Didn't we look into this 'Probing' issue when we dealt with the
'Grey' Aliens? [:-]

....and now you want to give DATA more ideas! [X(]

Oh dear. I'm definately keeping my ship under cloak until this remote probing business is finished.

Jetison the Romulan Ale, it isn't worth getting probed over!

It took me about 10 minutes to stop laughing... [:)]

Me -- supposedly being a good guy and all of that -- I always try to keep stuff from going into these directions... but somehow my posts always end up here.

Ya know, I might actually pay money to have that mounted in the den.

I really hate Jar Jar. [sm=00000003.gif]

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

I finally found where in my mod it was blowing up and got a clean start up. I am starting to add my characters back and play testing is resuming...

tjhkkr -> Star Wars Clone Wars: UPDATED - 10/8/2012 (10/8/2012 8:24:34 PM)

Well, I certainly do not have Eve's skill... not at all...

But I spent a good percentage of my vacation working out the bugs in my mod...
Including a very HUGE one where DW would not start... too many characters (which to me is the fun of the SW universe).

Some of the big fun was getting the character identifiers (like admiral, ambassador, and so on) out of the face of the picture... :D
But a lot of things got fixed.

I will be embarrased to put mine out in comparison to Eve or IGard or Haree... but it will get there SOON.

Too many characters? What's the limit then?




tjhkkr -> RE: Star Wars Clone Wars: UPDATED - 10/8/2012 (10/11/2012 5:30:06 PM)

I think IGard has about 150... [:)]
I confess to starting out with a few more.

I have resorted to having characters only with primary races... the Republic, CIS, HUTTS, criminals... [8D]

I am actually preparing to test again in a couple of minutes... I have another question I want to put out though...

After doing a search through the forums, Erik confirmed that there was no limit on characters or character images. I saw where you were trying to assign characters to the non-playable races, and I'd be willing to bet that is what caused the issue.




Igard -> RE: Star Wars Clone Wars: UPDATED - 10/8/2012 (10/11/2012 11:36:29 PM)

TJ, sorry I missed your earlier posts on this. The Picard Era mod has 244 character images, and somewhere over 1100 characters in the text files.

I think Ed found that having over 500 character images causes some longer load times. I don't thing there's a limit on the character text file sizes, but perhaps you'll experience a drop in performance with too many images.

Let us know how you get on. [:)]




ehsumrell1 -> RE: Star Wars Clone Wars: UPDATED - 10/8/2012 (10/12/2012 6:10:52 AM)

Yes Igard, Elliot stated that character images over 500 will definitely impact performance and
increase load times on single and dual core machines running WinXP and Vista (the platforms I've
tested in). Not sure how badly quad core or higher machines are affected, or those running
Windows 7 OS's.

I've got a few mods with lots of images on mine and run them with no problems. I'm on a Win 7 machine, I-7 Core (quad core), with 16 GB of RAM and a Radeon 7770 graphics 1 GB DDR3 RAM. Now I don't think I've had any go over 500 images yet, but I might be a good test bed for finding out the absolute upper limits if one with 500+ character images ever comes out.

No, I did not do that; I was warned not to, so I did not try that.
It is time to try the old tried and true method... add one character file at a time and see where it blows up.
