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 Movie Battles II with 5 comments by MaceMadunusus on Jul 16th, 2014


Ten years of JKA


As you already know, Moviebattles is already over ten years old. Now JKA is 10 aswell! Exactly 10 years ago on September 17th 2003, the game was released. After all this time, people are still playing it. Here's hoping they will still be playing JKA in 10 years from now.

A few weeks ago we showed you some progress in a dev diary. Here's the second diary in what will hopefully be a long line of progress reports to the community. Please leave feedback and suggestions if you have any.

Clonetrooper


In order to make clonetrooper more versatile we've made some changes. You can purchase both ions and blobs. You're able to switch between them with the weaponmode key.


Ions have been tweaked aswell. The duration of ions has been doubled, but the amount of ions you can purchase has been lowered from 3/6/9 to 2/4/6.

Droideka

We're aware that droideka needs some balancing, so we've made some changes. For starters shield 3 has been lowered from 1000 to 800. Shield regeneration speed has been reduced a little and is now the same for every shield level.

We've also added a chatbubble for the droideka class:

Droideka Chatbubble

The maximum available ammo has been decreased too, to prevent deka's from holding down mouse1 for a long period of time. This should hopefully prevent deka's from being able to surpress corridors for a long time, and instead they'll be forced to pick their targets more carefully.

Classic Jedi Temple


The old Jedi Temple map will be a part of the next release as well. It is the rather large version of Jeditemple with some similarities with the current one. The following screenshots should freshen up your memory:

Classic Jedi TempleClassic Jedi TempleClassic Jedi Temple

The current (public) Jeditemple map will remain as it is, and this map will be added in as mb2_jeditemple_classic - so both maps will be included in the next release.

New Scopes

Most of you have already seen (or used) these scopes before. Starushka has made these some time ago, and we feel they're good enough to be used in the official release.

You can get these scopes here.

That's all for now guys!

Yes, there are lots of species selection mods, but there aern't many that add new clothing (not much you can do with modding the current species, but you can create new ones). Check out jediknight3.filefront.com
