|Hello, I'm new to jul.rustedlogic.net but I do have some interesting discoveries while I was looking through the Phantom Menace PC game.
Like there is quiet a bit of unused content, as the game was rushed. A majority of unused content is voice acting, as if the game didn't had enough to begin with. One of the most interesting voice clips are QGd9990-9994, as Qui-Gon Jinn references the cut STAP vehicle that was going to be used in the game but was scrapped and then the idea went into Jedi Power Battles instead. Not only was the STAP level was scrapped, there was going to be a level (or a section of a level) where the player would pilot an AAT. This and the AAT were cut because a developer of the game said that the game's engine basically wasn't meant for playable vehicle action.
Moving on, there were are some cut characters that didn't make it in. One is Jira from the film, she was cut because modelers for the game didn't get a reference of what she look looked like. Another character is Jabba's Porter, he was cut because his AI script wasn't working well. Then there was a droid that the player would have acquired in the Mos Espa level but was scrapped due to AI pathfinding problems. Then some minor characters that would have appeared in Mos Espa Arena but all that is left is there voice files and voice text dialogue. Same goes with Jira and Jabba's Porter, about 12 out of 16 of Jabba's Porter's lines can be found in the cache of the Mos Espa Arena map. And another thing I found out that there is one of JP's AI modules left in the map thanks to BAP Map/BAF Map Tool, unknown if the AI module works, could if applied to another character. And about his voice acting? I got a video if it right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcLzlabg2SY
One minor unused thing is a Paddy Frog pickup item, this was going to be used between Mos Espa and Mos Espa Arena. Unknown if any of its programming or if its model exists, though the pickup text remains in the files. It can be found with SCUMMREV: http://jsg.id.au/scumm/scummrev/download/scummrev-2012.zip Anyways, about the paddy frog, while unused in the game, it does appear in the movies. Return of the Jedi to be exact.
I'd probably would go on, but there's just so much to cover. If you want to look into the game to extract the files like models or the voice files, which are .wv format, I can supply with an ISO of the game that I have ripped myself. If you need it, just reply or PM.
That's all for now, thank you.
