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.

For the next release, I'm going to release it as another full version because I had to remove some things from the previous version and it's kind of a pain looking for the data to include. Besides, I'm not getting alot of downloads from the last version so I predict fewer downloads of a patch.

So far I've made a few glitch fixes and not a whole lot else. I was thinking of things to do and I thought of adding new skins to character creation, adding some new sabers, making new skins for the menu etc. If anybody has any ideas, take a shot and I'll almost definitely be able to reply (not getting alot of pms about my mod currently).

I've also looked into decompiling .bsps (compiled maps) so I could fix some annoying glitches (like the yavin skating glitch). I was almost sure it was illegal, but apparently, since Raven's maps are in the assets .pk3s, it is legal to decompile and edit them. It doesn't break the EULA to edit any of the data in the base folder, as long as you don't profit (or cause Lucas Arts a loss of profits). So, I'm thinking I might try doing that, but I would like some opinions first and enough people supporting the mod first.
(We edit Raven's skins anyway, so whats the harm?)

Hey I'm back. I was away for awhile and then I kind of forgot about the mod... I'm gonna finish it off right now. If you're having trouble, make sure you've read the readme and make sure you've read some of the comments, they should solve your problem.

Hey just to be sure what do I rename Academy's pak.3 files too? Because I just rewrote them to b_assets_academy.pk3

Doesn't really matter as long as they load in the correct order. I gave an example in the readme. The first letter in academy's assets' filename should alphabetically come after the first letter of outcast's.

That's a new one. Do you have any other mods installed and have you installed the latest patch for JA? Might be a conflict of some kind, anymore details?

Oh, I know! Sorry, it looks like you renamed Academy's assets first then installed the patch to outcast's .pk3s.

Ran into that same problem myself, hope this helps.

Make sure you've read the readme and have copied outcast's assets files, and if you can provide any details that would be useful.
