Jedi Knight Galaxies is an immersive, competitive and innovative multiplayer shooter, played out in the Star Wars universe. Currently a full conversion mod (soon to go standalone), the project was originally based on and modified from Raven Software’s Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. Jedi Knight Galaxies is available completely free of charge. We aim to develop the project into a Large Multiplayer Online game, crossing traditional RPG (role playing game) elements with the fast paced excitement of an FPS (first person shooter). The game is supported by its community and developers, contribution is encouraged and newbies are welcome. The current development team comes from a variety of backgrounds, countries, and age, united by our desire to make a great game. Welcome to Jedi Knight Galaxies, where we break the limits!

Description

The JKG Launcher is an update program used to get new content and patch your game, as well as adjust several game settings before entering the game (such as your resolution settings). Simply run the install wizard and install the launcher where you’d like. After installing the launcher, open it and click on the install button to download and install the game. Please keep in mind that you will need a copy of Jedi Academy installed on your computer so you can point the launcher to the base assets required by JKG. If further updates for the launcher or game are released, the Launcher should notify you and prompt you to update. JKG is currently in a beta as of this release. Please keep in mind that the game is not currently ready for stable play, and we've posted uploaded the launcher here for feedback and testing purposes. Note: As of August 1st, package downloads through the launcher have been disabled.

Awesome! I haven't played JKG for quite some time, and now there finally is the launcher again. Wow, how much I've missed this launcher music! I'd love to help test it.

Yeah, lightsabers are there, but the system is still under development, so don't expect much.

Hey everybody, I know some of you have had issues installing JKG, especially those who don't do so well with English. You may find this guide helpful: Jkgalaxies.com (especially since you can use google translate on it and it has pictures!)

When it is done. However, your launcher will keep up to date with new releases so just update it when it prompts you to.

More apologies. (Well at least I can say the beta test is going great since we're finding all the problems!) Our server ran out of bandwidth, evidently JKG is too popular. I should have a solution in place by August. Until then if you'd like to still install the mod you can download a direct install from our drop box alternative: Dropbox.com

If you've already installed, you unfortunately won't be able to use the JKGLauncher to launch the game. What you'll need to do in order to play is create a batch file with this:

jkgalaxies.x86.exe +set fs_cdpath "C:\program files\LucasArts\Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy\GameData\"

fs-cdpath should point to wherever your Jedi Academy install is. Connect to the server by typing: /connect JKGSERVER.dyndns.dk

How do you create the file? Also can I use steam and steam apps instead of lucas arts becuase I have the steam version of JA

Just use a text editor such as notepad to create a text file. Then after you've done so, save it and rename the extension from .txt to .bat Make sure you place this batch file inside your GameData folder.

I'm pretty sure you can use Steam, but I don't have a steam copy to test it with so not positive. If you get stuck ask for help on our IRC, I think some of the other people have gotten it working on steam.

Can you give me more details? That almost sounds like you are trying to join a non-jkg server. Does /devmap jkg_ctf_bespin work?

I installed the JKG launcher and then it told me to choose a place to put it, I put it inside jedi academy in steam, was I supposed to do that BTW? And then it took me to the launcher and I clicked inStall and it said something's wrong with the packaging, but how and where do you launch the server? Do you have to go into jedi academy and launch from there?

The launcher currently doesn't work because we're out of bandwidth. If you want a LAN server make a batch file that does something like this: "
jkgalaxiesded.x86.exe +set dedicated 1 +exec server.cfg"

Oops. I forgot to mention. You want "ArloriaNet" as the server and the channel is #jkgalaxies

Is there other files I can download for JKG? Cause the direct link for me to download it is not found, and the launcher doesn't work when I install!
