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.

About Jedi Academy - Knights of the Old Republic 2 Duels with 2 comments by JamyzGenius on Dec 21st, 2014

Hello there!

This will be, probably, the last update of the year. In this one, I will show what I have so far on the mod and what's left to do.

A VIDEO

Today I released a really fast preview of how's the mod going on. I didn't want to show all the stuff right now. I would prefer to you guys to play it, but I think I can show a little more soon.
The trailer features almost all the completed missions, not all. Some were left off, but it only shows the 1% of the cinematics. Just to see what the mod is, and how it looks when playing.

PLANETS:

PERAGUS

MISSION IN PROGRESS
MAP FINISHED

EBON HAWK

SCRIPTS AND MISSION COMPLETED.
THE MAP IS COMPLETED, BUT CAN CHANGE.

KORRIBAN

ALL MISSIONS COMPLETED, THEY JUST NEED SOME SMALL DETAILS.
MAP FINISHED

NAR SHADDAA

MISSION COMPLETED (SCRIPTS) - THE SKIN OR MODEL IS A PROBLEM, THERE IS NO ZEZ KAI ELL MODEL.
MAP FINISHED

DANTOOINE

MISSION IN PROGRESS (SCRIPTS) - THE SKIN OR MODEL IS A PROBLEM, THERE IS NO JEDI MODEL.
MAP FINISHED

DXUN

SECOND ONE IS COMPLETED. MANDALORIAN OUTPOST IS STILL IN PROGRESS (SCRIPTS)
MAPS FINISHED

ONDERON

MISSION COMPLETED (SCRIPTS) - THE SKIN OR MODEL IS A PROBLEM, THERE IS NO KAVAR MODEL.
MAP FINISHED

TELOS

THREE COMPLETED, MISSIONS AND MAPS. BUT THE CITADEL STATION UNDER ATTACK IS STILL IN PROGRESS AND WILL BE DIFFERENT FROM THE ORIGINAL PICTURES. MAINLY WITH RED LIGHTS AROUND THE AREA AND TONS OF ENEMIES INSTEAD OF CITIZENS.
3 MAPS FINISHED. 1 NEEDS WORK

MALACHOR

MISSIONS COMPLETED (SCRIPTS)
MAPS FINISHED

That's it guys, almost all the core missions are completed by now. Probably I will add more, probably I will delete some, depend of the capabilities of JKA. Also, I deleted the extra Ebon Hawk missions because those were really unnecessary at the moment.

Thank you so much for your patience and support. The core mod is almost finished, probably ready for around this months.

Best Regards!
Happy Holidays and Good Life for the next year.
The best for yah!

So I am having a problem and was hoping one of you could help. I just recently decided to install Jedi knight Jedi Academy on my fairly new ASUS gaming desktop that I put together. It's running windows 7 which im sure is the problem, but I install the game perfectly and then try to run the game (any mode, multiplayer, single player, safe modes) and it opens. My screen goes dark just like it does for every other game I have ( its a sceptre HD tv screen) and says HDMI 2 in the corner (my computers channel, my PS3 is on HDMI 1) after it goes dark it brings JA up but in a very small window in the middle of my screen and it is only showing the upper left hand corner of the menu screens (the menu seems to be normal sized I just cant see the whole thing cause its likes its running in a 600x600 screen made up number) I cant get to settings to change any video settings and I was wondering if you copuld help. Ive also tried running it in every compatability mode and adminastrator.

I am looking for talented guys with a little bit of experience in modding Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy. I need men to help me complete an epic mod for JA (I'm looking especially for scripters but if you can handle texturing or anything else assigned to modding you're welcome). So if you think you've got the experience and talent and if you are really willing to help PM me as soon as possible. If you think you fit in the lines above or if you know someone else who fits them PM me. I would like you, readers, as well to give this message forward to your friends, or to groups you are in. I'm counting on you guys and I hope that I will be PM-ed soon. Thank you very much for having time to read this.

Best regards,
MasterVV
