A spin-off of Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, Jedi Academy allows players to create their own Jedi, train in the Academy under the tutelage of Luke Skywalker and Kyle Katarn and ultimately choose to follow the path of the Light Side or the Dark Side of the Force. The game is powered by the same version of the Quake III engine used in its predecessor, Jedi Outcast, containing modifications to the Quake code to give a third-person view and new lightsaber effects (Jedi Knight II had these 3rd person effects as well). Players have the ability to construct their own lightsaber by choosing the hilt style and blade color. After completing certain objectives, new saber styles become available.

Changes From Jedi Outcast to Jedi Academy

  • Your character, Jaden, can be male or female and is customizable. For example, you can choose from several lightsaber colors and hilt types as well as from several species:
  • - Twi'lek female
    - Kel Dor male
    - Human male or female
    - Zabrak female
    - Rodian male

  • New Force Powers in single player; Force Absorb, Force Protect, Force Drain, and Force Rage (these powers were available in Jedi Outcast's multiplayer game, but not in the single player game.)
  • New lightsaber combat moves including katas, wall gripping, and acrobatics.
  • Four new weapons: DL-44 Blaster Pistol and Stouker Concussion Rifle, Saberstaff (double bladed lightsaber) and dual sabers. A variety of saber hilts are also available.
  • New vehicles and vehicle-based levels, including Tauntauns and speeder bikes.
  • Power Duel mode: Players join as an individual or as a team of two. The individual has more health and Force power in exchange for being at a disadvantage in numbers.
  • Siege Mode: Players work to complete goals and stop the other team from completing their goals.
  • AI NPCs (not just bots, as before) in Multiplayer.
  • Decreased limitations on world objects in Multiplayer, enhancing modding possibilities (and making coop play theoretically possible).
  • Various bugfixes, gameplay tweaks and subtle changes (especially to the Multiplayer component).
  • Enhanced rendering of the Quake III: Team Arena engine, including dynamic glow features.
  • Removal of the First Person Lightsaber view that can be found in both Jedi Knight and Jedi Outcast.

The mod is reborn today, the hype, is only beginning, and this will not be the last version.


  • Jolee Bindo (Model Update)
  • Zhar Lestin (Model Update)
  • Vrook, KOTOR I outfit (Variation Added)
  • Dorak (Model Update)

We've updated a few models in The Old Republic faction, there may be more to come, but that'll be for a future update. Vrook has been granted a new variant which will show off his attire from the original Knights of the Old Republic game much more accurately. Zhar, Jolee and Dorak have all been given more high-quality models, thus allowing them to look very accurate to their appearances in the game.


NPCs Added

  • Greedo

NPCs Improved


  • Kreia has been given the medium saber style in addition to Tavion.
  • Changed Juhani's lightsaber on her dark side variant to the correct hilt.
  • Adjusted Vandar Tokare's Lightsaber blade to a radius of 1.5 and length of 15.


  • Darth Malak has been given the Tavion saber style in addition to Desann.
  • Darth Malgus has been given the Strong saber style in addition to Desann and Tavion.

We have updated the effect for the unstable red Lightsaber, it now looks a lot more unstable. I apologize I don't have a video to show it off, gotta have some surprises after all.


Duel of the Fates has been completed. Featuring different endings across all 3 characters, your choice of character will either relive or rewrite Star Wars history as you know it. Qui-Gon Jinn's point of view is my favorite, you'll see why. :winkthumb:

1. To play Duel of the Fates, simply click on New Game from the menu, then Missions.

2. Click on STAR WARS EPISODE I, and then Duel of the Fates. You'll be taken to a still image of the film.

3. Hover your mouse over the character you want to play as, and then click.

4. ???

5. Profit.



It's been a long ride, and a new beginning is fast approaching Knights of the Force 2.1. I want to thank all of you for your support. Beta has been in development for a long time, and we're finally able to give it to all of you. You all are perhaps some of the most patient fans I've ever seen, and I'm grateful for it.

While Knights of the Force has been reborn at last, our work is only beginning, we have many new exciting updates and features planned, including a launcher with the ability for us to release you updates and fixes frequently. We will have more details for you all within the coming days, so stay tuned. There are a few individuals I would like to briefly recognize for their contributions.

NubSmoo: For compiling the final piece we needed to get a server up and running at last, and allowing us to finally release.

Fire Phoenix: For defying expectations and initial bias, and rebirthing a mod that many thought would never work.

Ghost: For his entity modding tutorial, thus making Duel of the Fates possible.

The MBII team: For letting us use their maps.

The JK Enhanced team: For their amazing SFX lightsabers.

All of the authors whose work we're using: Thank you for allowing us to use your work, without your permissions (and there were a lot), this mod would never have been completed.

As for all of you, the mod is uploading to Google Drive right as I'm typing this, and the mod will be released at last on February 9th, 2018. A long time coming, and we couldn't have done this without your support. We hope to see you ingame.

Thank you for following the development of Knights of the Force 2.1, and may the Force be with you.

I don't see why anyone would want a mod based on that abomination by disney. Star Wars games were better when they followed the non-canon EU content rather than strictly follow the old canon by Lucas or the nu canon by disney.
