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.

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.

Lovely mod, I've been playing it for about 2 hours ( I'm at Cloud City ) now and it works, there's a few oddities and glitches here and there, but nothing game breaking so far.

The two main glitches I've noticed so far is that the objectives menu isn't working. And, the other one is that followers ( Jan, Lando, etc ) do not do not play proper animations when they interact with consoles, computers etc.

Another thing, how come dismemberment only works about half the time? I'm using the bloody dismemberment mod and the realistic saber cheat set to 3, and sometimes they cut chopped up as they're supposed to, other times not.

Either way, it's a great mod, thank you! :)

Thanks for the input! I think your having trouble with dismemberment mods because of my new npc files. Each npc has a .txt with the .npc extension contained in a .pk3 assets file. You could add a bunch of 'z's in front of your mod's .pk3, but it might cause a conflict. You can get a .npc file editor from jkfiles which can extract it from the .pk3 and recompile it. It also gives you a nice UI so you don't need any knowledge of coding JA =).

And about the other glitches, they're either unfixable or it would take a lot of effort for little effect. The animation glitches really annoy me too but I've spent a lot of time already and it's not game breaking. I probably won't ever get around to fixing it, sorry.

btw you know what would be cool?
if when you choose your char in jedi outcast campain (trow in katarn skinpack), when you choose a skin for Kyle, that skin represents him in the jedi academy champain

You could manually edit the .npc files or change the model itself if you want. Otherwise I don't think I can do that without giving kyle the same skin as player in academy.

If you need any modding tools try jkfiles, if you have any idea on how to actually do what you're asking I'm all ears.

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?

Well I did update and there is no other mod. I re-installed Academy and Outcast updated them renamed all the academy .pak files to b_assets_academy1.pk3 then 2 then 3 etc. but still nothing. and when I launch academy there are no models only audio

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.
