This project aims to recreate the levels and playing experience of the LucasArts game Dark Forces using the modern 3D engine found in the game Jedi Knight - Jedi Academy.

We will be re-creating all 14 levels found in the original game and bringing them into the 21st century.

Given the capabilities of the modified Quake 3 engine this project is very exciting indeed. Weapons, enemies and models will be re-created aswell as other features of the original game.

Soon you'll be playing Dark Forces with gorgeous visuals, brilliant effects and fantastic playability!

  • As Kyle Katarn, mercenary and agent of the Rebel Alliance, infiltrate the secret Imperial base to steal the plans for the Death Star and travel to distant locations as you track down clues to unravel the mystery of the Dark Trooper.
  • Choose wisely from an arsenal of weapons including Bryar Pistol, Imperial Blaster, Thermal Detonator, Imperial Repeater, Fusion Cutter, Anti-personnel Mines, Mortar Gun, Concussion Rifle, and the Dark Trooper Assault Cannon.
  • Test your skills in 14 greatly enhanced missions
  • Interact with legendary Star Wars characters such as Storm Troopers, Imperial Commandos, Gammorean Guards, Dianogas, Boba Fett, Grans, Trandoshans, Jabba the Hutt, Kell Dragons, and of course all 3 iterations of the fearsome Dark Trooper.
  • Hear the original music exactly as the composer intended.
  • Powered by a modified version of the widely acclaimed Quake 3: Team Arena engine, you'll enjoy the game as never before with high resolution graphics, hardware accelerated performance, true 3D environments, stunning sound and music effects, and in-engine cutscenes which complete the entire 14 mission story.

I NEED this mod! NEED! I've got JK I-III on here. Mysteries of the Sith. I've got KOTOR I and II. Galactic Battlegrounds, Galactice Conquest, Troopers, Battlefront, Republic Commando...

But the first Star Wars game I ever played was DF for PS1. It was actually the game that convinced to get a PS1. And I loved it. I still have it... AND I NEED THIS TO COMPLETE THE STORY. Not only that but my friends loves JK II and JK III. He also played JK I... but he refuses to play DF because he can't well... figure it out. It's too old for him.

I need this so he can see the awesomeness that was DF... OH... please hurry!

BTW... I really like the mod. :P

Pity they havn't bothered updating here they could use the publicity, The new Demo for JK rocks, this is easily going to be one of the very best single player mods.
