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 including the ability to wield two independent sabers in a style known as Jar'Kai, once used by Anakin Skywalker during the closing fight in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, or the double-bladed lightsaber (also known as a "saber staff").

All Jedi Academy and Outcast fans, its time to party. Raven Software, after 10 years, has finally released the source code to both games.

Posted by MawDrallin on May 7th, 2013

With LucasArts going through a process of review by Disney, it seems Raven Software and Activision have decided to give Star Wars fans some good news, and good news they delivered. It took 10 years of waiting, but we finally got it. Raven Software has released the source code for Jedi Academy and Jedi Outcast, allowing modders to have a field day with the games. Here is the link to the Jedi Academy source codes, but as for the Jedi Outcast source codes, the one site to download it from, SourceForge, is experiencing some technical difficulties, so if someone can repost the link when its up or find somewhere else to download it from, I'm sure everyone would be appreciative.
