This is a mod made for people who liked JKO's campaign but still want to be able to use all of their skins from JKA. This mod's focus is on porting Outcast's missions to the newer engine while trying to keep gameplay balanced and letting you use whatever mods you want from JKA. All with the storyline kept as intact as possible with the main focus being on simply getting the missions to work as intended. Some other bonuses included - such as scripts, new music and a new ui for single player.

2 comments by xxT65xx on Dec 26th, 2014

JOA v3 has been uploaded, this will hopefully be the last major update. After at least 3 years in the making, most major bugs have been fixed. Cutscene animations, objectives, the skating glitch on yavin swamp, shader conflicts with academy, not being able to dual wield on ns_streets and many more bugs have been fixed. Big thanks to user sanguinehipster at for fixing many of these bugs.

His mod can be found here:

Some small bugs still remain, the Galak boss fight on doom_shields doesn't work perfectly and some shaders may still flicker, but I'd say I've probably spent enough time working on this now. Unless any major gameplay breaking bugs are found, this is the final version of my mod.

Some much needed fixes, a new extras submenu with mission select (for outcast anyway), and a small handful of new skins to add some variety.

I'm typing this from my laptop, for anyone still interested, I've started working on my mod again. Right now I'm waiting on some parts for a desktop computer, and I can't guarantee any sort of release or update for the next few weeks. I will update again in the near future, and I haven't given up on this. I've already made a 16:9 wide screen fix for jedi academy, which should be included in a future release.

Glad to know that this is still going, do you think you could fix the NPCs with the "altfire" flag not using their alt fire?

I haven't heard of that one, but I can always go over the npc data again. I'll probably end up playing through the whole game again just to make sure everything works, and that could take a while.

I agree with the above if it hasn't been fixed already; altfire should be included with the NPC's (e.g. Jan).

One thing I've also noticed from playing the game with this mod again is the NPC voice overs; while playing Outcast, the Academy trooper voices just feel out of place (e.g. "Get the jedi!" when you haven't got your lightsaber yet). There should be a few additional NPCs which are mission-specific (e.g. NPCs "stormtrooper" and "stormtrooper2" should belong to JA, two new stormtroopers ("stormtrooper3" and "stormtrooper4") should be specific for Outcast etc).

Besides that, I'm really enjoying the mod, very good work.

Howdy Ho folks, good things are happening! I've bought a new computer and have started learning how to map in JKA. Also, someone has found a way to fix all of Outcasts map issues AND fix the broken objectives!

User "SanguineHipster" has posted his own mod here:

His mod fixes all these issues, and with some luck, I can either integrate his fixes into my mod or at least use them to figure out how to do it myself. This mod isn't dead just yet. I'll update within the next week.

First I want to say I'm very happy that this mod exists. I personally prefer Outcast's SP more than JA's.
But I have much more mods to JA than to Outcast. But using this mod, it disables all other mods, my saber hilts are gone. They don't show up anymore.

With the release of the source code, this mod will likely be made obsolete, and with my main computer dead I can't really continue supporting this mod.

So, I'm going to try to release one final patched version. I'll try to figure out whats been changed since last time and list it on the download, if I can.

It still exists through console commands, but thanks to some problems in the way the game's saves work, using it causes a lot of crashes.

Yeah, more or less. My mod is basically a bunch of script-work arounds for issues in his mod. This was made before the source code was released, and my main computer died which is why I haven't really gotten to work with it. There are some issues that can't be fixed without the source code.
