   -^--- Introduction ---^-

Alright, lets explain what this FAQ is for and what your
going to learn. As the title says, you will learn Acrobatics
and Moves. What kind of acrobatics and moves do I mean
though? Acrobatics in Jedi Outcast can be most commonly
be reffered to as flips and rolls. Things that move your
body in a combonation of buttons would be reffered to as
an acrobatic skill. Moves are things like lightsaber tricks.
Special things you can do with a lightsaber for example. I
know someone has already written a FAQ on Lightsaber
Tactics, but I plan to go into explaining a little bit more.
I will also teach you a couple of nice gun tricks to do
whenever your in an all out Free For All (FFA). Thats what
we are gonna cover in this FAQ!!


   -^--- Basic Stuff ---^-

Ok, lets learn the basics that you just gotta know.
Before we start, if you are a newbie please go into your
controls and change everything you want to make it as easy
as possible for you!!

         -- Crouch
How To Use : Press the crouch button

What It Does : The name says it all :)

Helpful Tip : If you are trying to hide turn your saber
               off and crouch beside a dark object where
               you cannot be visible!

Helpful Tip 2 : In multiplayer, it is of great respect
                 that you bow before a lightsaber duel.
                 Just crouch, then look down to the ground,
                 then look up again.

        -- Strafe
How To Use : Press your strafe left and right buttons

What It Does : Strafing is a main thing that keeps you
                alive. Its a side-step. Use it often!

Helpful Tip : Strafe in lightsaber duels so you can
               move your feet faster, get out of tight
               places, and dont have to take two seconds
               to turn around.

        -- Roll
How To Use : While running forwards or backwards, crouch

What It Does : Lets you get out of tight places or
                get behind your enemies quickly when
                they least expect your escape

Helpful Tip : Sometimes, jumping off of high places
               can cost you at least ten health.
               Try rolling off of those places and you
               will land safely at ease!

Helpful Tip 2 : If there is something like --__-- in the
                 ground try rolling over the low point.
                 You will fly from the side you are rolling
                 from to the other.

!BE AWARE! : There are a couple of fast lightsaber moves
              that can seriously damage you when you are

       -- Saber Throw
How To Use : Press and hold your saber throw button

What It Does : Level ---
                   1) The saber throws but doesnt go too
                   2) Saber turns faster and goes a bit
                   3) Saber turns much faster and can home
                      in on opponents ;)

Helpful Tip : If your opponent is high up, maybe above
               a place that your jump cant reach, but theirs
               can, throw your lightsaber to attack them!!

              lightsaber knocked clear off of course onto
              the ground when it is in the air! If this
              happens, press the attack button to use to
              force and make it return. You are super
              vulnerable without your saber and while it is
              coming to you it can again be knocked off of
              course! If that happens.. you can say your

       -- Jump
How To Use : Tap your jump button quickly to do a nonforce
              jump. Hold your jump button to do a force

What It Does : Sends you flying in the air. As your jump
                level increases, the height it can go
                increases. SOME ACROBATIC TECHNIQUES REQUIRE
                A CERTAIN LEVEL OF FORCE JUMP!!!!!

Helpful Tip : Use a force jump to get you to high places.

Helpful Tip 2 : In a duel or anywhere, be sure you flip
                 a lot to make you look cool and get you
                 a good speed worked up.

!BE AWARE! : When dueling, I advise you not to jump right
              into your enemies and attack. This can
              be easily countered and you can die this way!


   -^--- A Little More Advanced Stuff ---^-
Now that I have gone over the basics, lets go a bit deeper!
In this section we will learn a couple of things that arent
too difficult to do, but arent what I would call BASIC, lol.
These moves require more than one button to do.

       -- Back Flip
How To Use : Back + Jump

What It Does : Read the name

Helpful Tip : If you really want to be cool with a
               lightsaber, learn how to backflip well and

      -- Side Flip
How To Use : Strafe + Jump

What It Does : Read the name

Helpful Tip : You shouldnt use side flips as much as
               you dont back flips. Try not to use these
               too much because a lot of times they get you
               into trouble. I know from experience =)

      -- Wall Side Flip
How To Use : Strafe on Wall + Jump

What It Does : Makes you strafe jump off of a wall

Helpful Tip : Dont use this much either. Only when you
               are seriously cornered and need to get
               out of a space use this. That is only my
               suggestion, you might be able to make a
               strategy or something out of this.

      -- Wall Run
How To Use : Strafe on Wall + Forward on Wall + Jump

What It Does : Runs you through the wall

Helpful Tip : Use this when you are in crammed up
               hallways and things. It makes you go
               unbelievably much faster.


    -^--- Difficult Stuff ---^-
In this section, you will learn some hard stuff. Most of
this stuff is hard for me to even do!

      -- Attack Flip
How To Use : Attack With Saber in Yellow Stance + Jump-x2

What It Does : Sends you flying in the air and sends you
                back onto the ground doing a pretty strong

Helpful Tip : Only use this if your a real ametuer..

!BE AWARE! : Whenever you land, you are meant to land hard.
              It takes about 3 seconds to get up. For that
              three seconds, you are completely vulnerable.

Rumor : You can avoid this landing if you make the flip
         a successful attack and take down a lot of health.
         ** CONFIRMED ** - The rumor is true.

      -- Wall Flip
How To Use : Forward to Wall + Jump-x2

What It Does : A straight wall flip!

Helpful Tip : Never use this.

      -- Flying Jump
How To Use : Forward + Jump-x2 + Let go of Forward

What It Does : Makes you jump straight

Helpful Tip : Use this rarely since most of the time it
               is never really needed. NEVER use this trying
               to show off.


       -^--- Blue Stance Moves ---^-
The blue stance is the speed stance. In this section you
will learn some speed moves.

      -- Spin Strafe
How To Use : Strafe Left or Right + Attack

What It Does : A spin attack that is pretty helpful!

Helpful Tip : Use this commonly if you desire speed and

      -- Roller Kill (hey its the best name for it)
How To Use : Strafe Left or Right + Down + Attack

What It Does : A low saber attack. This is for those
                people that you are fighting that roll
                most of the time.

Helpful Tip : Use this to your advantage. Dont use it
               whenever someone isnt rolling or you will
               be in bad shape because I can garantee you
               will get hit!

       -- Jump Spiral
How To Use : Jump + Forward + Attack

What It Does : Your character spin attacks.

Helpful Tip : Use this if you are positive that your
               opponent has low health.


       -^--- Yellow Stance Moves ---^-
Alright, here's the only move you can do with your
normal, casual, yellow stance!! :)

       -- Backward Spin Thing
How To Use : Back + Attack

What It Does : Makes you spin, attacking, backwards.

Helpful Tip : Dont try using this in a duel.


       -^--- Red Stance Moves ---^-
There arent many special things with the red stance.

       -- Attack
How To Use : Attack :)

What It Does : Sends a super slow, but deadly, slash on
                your opponent.

Helpful Tip : Only attack with the red stance if you are
               sure that your opponent is not in the blue
