Either by luck, or wisdom, you've arrived at the website of the biggest, most extensive and evolving mod ever made for a Star Wars game. Welcome to choices, welcome to adventures! Welcome; to Jedi Knight Galaxies©, a free modification for Ravensoft’s Q3-based game, Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy.

With new models, animations, maps, music, and naturally including an all new exciting plotline, all backed up by extreme amounts of coding. As far as a total conversion goes, we prefer to call JKG a game, more than a mod. Except for the fact that we want to bring you all this, completely free of charge!

Welcome to Jedi Knight Galaxies, where we break the limits!

Hey everyone quick news update. Jkgalaxies.com is back online, it has been disabled for a few days due to the fact that we used up our monthly bandwidth allowance during the Launcher Test. Oops. You guys broke it! Good job, that's what these tests are for. As a result, we're currently working on finding some alternate file hosting solutions. Apparently we'd need about 250GB a month (at least), and finding this for free is proving to be a bit of a challenge. We have some promising ideas though for that and I hope to have some more news for everyone come mid-august. Because we don't want to exceed our bandwidth again, I've temporarily disabled the launcher so you won't be able to install JKG using it. However, you are welcome to use our temporary direct file install here: Dropbox.com and then edit the launcher's ini config file if you want to use the launcher to play.

Basically if you're installing for the first time what you'll do is download the manual zip folder install. Extract it, then move the extracted contents to where you want to install (eg: c:\program files\JKG\)

Then, after installing the launcher you'll need to edit the Settings.ini file located in the same file as the JKGLauncher.exe

Here is a sample of what those settings should look like if you've never installed using the launcher before:

Simply adjust the paths to point to the correct locations on your machine. The JKG install path is where JKG is installed (where you put the contents of the zip folder), while the JKA install path is where you have Jedi Academy installed (shouldn't be the same). Media path is where you want screenshots and so forth stored. Keep in mind that this is very hacky and you don't normally have to do this with the launcher, it is just if you would like to continue testing it while we have the install packages disabled.

Thanks for your patience and support, we look forward to seeing you in game!
Also a special remark of thanks to NightCrawler for his support during this time and for his assistance writing this post.

When do you predict phase 2 will come out? (I don't mean to be rude)

No idea. The plan right now is to get a fully functional and polished phase 1 Versus out before continuing onto phase 2.

It's coming along slowly but surely. Real life has really stalled things, but just recently we finished merging our code with the latest version of OpenJK. Fixed a slew of bugs!

Do I need a better computer to run this, or will the new weapons and stuff not change the FPS? Becuase I have a very old laptop with 4GB, i3 processor, and Intel HD 3000 graphics.

I'm happy to see we played a few games between some devs and community members! I took the liberty of recording the matches, so hopefully you guys will have some new gameplay footage to look at here soon. If you want to participate in these little scrimmages, hop onto our IRC and we'll guide you through everything! Hoping to see you there next time!

If you'd like to use the launcher to launch the game (not install, since that's disabled right now), first install the launcher here: Moddb.com

Then follow the directions on this page: Jkgalaxies.com

Basically you'll copy and paste this into a txt file called Settings: Pastebin.com

Then save it and rename the extension from .txt to .ini The Settings.ini file should be created in the same directory as the jkglauncher.exe You'll also need to adjust the paths in the Settings.ini file to match your own JKG install (for example if you have jka installed on your D:/ drive instead of C:/ make the appropriate adjustments).

When first installing the JKGLauncher, a settings.ini file is not generated until after you install JKG, this is why you have to create it from scratch to "trick" the launcher into thinking you installed the game.

Have you seen my question before?How to start my own server?I think our clan would be able to open an Asian server for jkg since we have a rented server which have run basejka and MBII for over 2 years.

This is a little bit more complicated, I'll try and post a guide about how to do this when I have some time to sit down and write one.

The best mod for JKA, I mean that literally, this mod overhauls a game that I thought would never, ever be overhauled, the gun combat is awesome :D .
