PC Gaming - SW Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II Level 3 Secrets

Level 3: The Return Home to Sulon reminds me a bit of an outdoor paintball field with barriers... minus the secret areas. That's right, two of the secret areas can be found outside at the starter area. The rest takes place indoor and beyond. Some of the secret areas are shrouded in darkness, so save up on power for your IR-Goggles. While you can try and feel your way to the areas, it's much faster...

PC Gaming - SW Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II Video Fix

So here I was mapping the game for secret areas halfway through, and constant back and forth from game to menu finally yielded the following annoying screen...

PC Gaming - SW Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II Level 2 Secrets

A lot of jumping is required in Level 2: The Lost Disk if you want to have a perfect 8/8. Some of the secrets are not very forgiving with mistakes, so follow all instructions to the letter, ESPECIALLY Secret #3, the one with the forks. Prepare to die and reload many times to obtain some of the secrets, so this is a great time to practice SAVING often!...

PC Gaming - SW Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II Level 1 Secrets

I am on a roll baby. Just fresh off from completing Star Wars: Dark Forces (and its secrets guide) and now I am about to take on its sequel Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II (and yes, I am planning to map a guide for this as well). Unfortunately, for this sequel I will only be attaching location snapshots as guides, complete with my award-winning arrow pointers, and specific details (and the...

PC Gaming - Star Wars: Dark Forces Mission XIV Secrets

Mission XIV: Arc Hammer is massive, as in massively challenging (I am guessing it's even more so in Hard mode?!). Anyway, yeah, you guessed it - Dark Troopers galore. Five secrets in total with Dark Troopers sprinkled around the map, some more concentrated than others. The annoying conveyor belts make an appearance as well as the much-despised ceiling turrets - the former designed to frustrate...

PC Gaming - Star Wars: Dark Forces Mission XIII Secrets

Just like Mission XII, Mission XIII: Executor only has two secret areas. The lull before the storm they say. Still, this level is chock full of supplies. Which is great since this is the second last mission before the finale. I don't know about you, but I always like to load up before the finale because you just never know how much of a nasty piece of work the end boss can be. Well, end bosses usually...

PC Gaming - Star Wars: Dark Forces Mission XII Secrets

And here's my New Year's gift to you gamers - a guide for Mission XII: Fuel Station. What makes this such a special gift you may ask? Well, it is only one of two mission levels which has a MEASLY two secrets. Nope, that's not a typo. I really mean TWO! A completist's sigh of relief! :) Of course the respawning - yes, you read that right, R-E-S-P-A-W-N-I-N-G - of Stormtroopers makes up for the lack of...

PC Gaming - Star Wars: Dark Forces Mission XI Secrets

Whoever designed Mission XI: Imperial City must seriously have a fetish for platforms. Seriously, four out of five of the secrets are platform-oriented, and this platform madness isn't just limited to secret areas alone. In fact, the whole level is full of platforms! Half the time I had no idea where to face what when the platform starts moving up/down. And of course, wherever it stops, you can expect...

PC Gaming - Star Wars: Dark Forces Mission X Secrets

Ever use your fists in the game thus far? If not, Mission X: Jabba's Ship will be a nice little introduction to using them. Not that you have much of a choice really in the beginning. Say "Hi" to your brand new punching bags with jaws - Kell Dragons!!! Ugh! Punch one and you'll see what I mean. Anyway, fists are fun to use against Gamorrean Guards though, and this level doesn't fail to disappoint...

PC Gaming - Star Wars: Dark Forces Mission IX Secrets

Mission IX: Nar Shaddaa started innocently enough. Nothing I needn't worry about in the beginning. There were the sprinkle of Gamorreans and Stormtroopers. Nothing I couldn't handle. Then I started coming across Thermal Detonator-tossing Grans! Again, since I had experience with those scumbags in the past, it wasn't anything new, and at least I knew what to expect coming my way. And I...

PC Gaming - Star Wars: Dark Forces Mission VIII Secrets

Mission VIII: Robotics Facility's theme is ICE. Yes, lots of ice all around. Well, add conveyor belts, ceiling turrets and good ol' sludge to the mix, and you have an ice cold recipe for one helluva frigid playing time. Oh, and don't forget Dark Troopers in their various incarnations. Good luck. You'll need lots of it! :)...

PC Gaming - Star Wars: Dark Forces Mission VII Secrets

Welcome to Mission VII: Deadly Cargo a.k.a. Thermal Detonator hell (or heaven if you look at it from a supply replenishment point of view)! That's right. Grans tossing them left, right and center without abandonment. And then there are them mines hiding behind crates, and energy barrels scattered around. Shoot/grenade one in the middle of a bunch and you set off a chain reaction of explosions...

PC Gaming - Star Wars: Dark Forces Mission I Secrets

Mission I: Secret Base is all about honing your jumping skills when it comes to discovering secrets. Yes, LOTS of jumping around. Well, lots of jumping around, AND falling if you're not careful. Not that you'll perish from a fatal fall or something. More like you'll have to find your way back up and re-try over... and over... again! At least for the first four secrets. The rest are pretty straightforward...

Computer Stuff - Youtube on Opera Browser Fullscreen Fix

I was watching a trailer on Youtube today on my Opera Portable browser, and had accidentally clicked off some annoying pop-up that says "www.youtube.com is now full screen... Remember my choice for this website - Allow - Deny". Desperate to get rid of the annoying pop-up as quick as possible so I can watch the trailer in peace, I had chosen "Deny". Ouch! Bad choice indeed, 'cuz every video I watched...

PC Gaming - Star Wars: Dark Forces Mission III Secrets

If you like swimming, you're gonna like Mission III: The Subterranean Hideout (or not!). Except that you won't be wading around in water but good ol' sludge! Lots of swift currents, long drains, Dianogas, droids, basically one big friggin' maze of a headache in some areas especially the drainage. Secret-wise though, it isn't that bad. Why? Because three out of five of them are in pretty close proximity...

PC Gaming - Star Wars: Dark Forces Mission IV Secrets

Two keywords basically characterize Mission IV: Imperial Weapons Research Facility - cliffs, and ceiling turrets! As you can imagine, falling off cliffs isn't fun. But what really takes the cake are the ceiling turrets! I HATE CEILING TURRETS! Why? Because they take a chunk out of your shield and health when hit. And they hit HARD. Pixellated graphics don't help either, and by the time you spot them, that is IF...

PC Gaming - Star Wars: Dark Forces Mission V Secrets

Mission V: The Blood Moon was a great level to map... for secrets that is. Why? Because there was just four, FOUR miserable secrets with a value of 25% for each. That, and ALL FOUR secrets are located around the same small area, with two secret areas located within a secret room itself! Imagine that! That's 75% alone in one room!!! The catch is this though. Unlike some levels where you can backtrack and...

Foods N' Recipes - Spicy Chicken with Tomato in Soy Sauce

I don't remember having eaten chicken cooked this way before but I may have, but I used Thai Chillies instead so it WAS spicy. It tasted pretty good if I may say so :P

PC Gaming - Star Wars: Dark Forces Mission VI Secrets

Just got back into playing Star Wars: Dark Forces on my Windows 7 system a couple of weeks ago. After playing it for awhile, I was suddenly struck by a strong sense of desire to do up a guide for all the secrets I had found in the game. Not just any guide. A PICTORIAL GUIDE that is, which I had found to be interestingly lacking around the Net. Sure, there are a bunch of well-written guides and...

Foods N' Recipes - Dry Chicken Curry

My eldest sister, Anna, had written down some recipes in a brown 1979 diary and which was added to by my sister Samantha (who is younger than me by a year). There are handwritten recipes as well as newspaper clippings pasted in there. I assume that the handwritten ones are gotten from books, magazines and newspapers as well.
