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 everybody, Darth Futuza here with some good news: after many long w̶e̶e̶k̶s̶ months of procrastination I’ve finally finished fixing the Jedi Knight Galaxies Launcher.  This represents a pretty cool milestone for JKG, as we now have a way to continually push new content to users and have a way of getting it updated automatically whenever we release a new patch.  It was a lot of fun learning more about the Qt C++ library, and a bit frustrating, but the result is very much worth it.

You can read the full article here: Jkgalaxies.com

If you'd like to participate in our alpha test, please join us on IRC and get a link to the download ( Jkgalaxies.com ), we'll begin an open-beta test of the launcher next week if you'd rather wait.

Thanks for your patience and support guys!

EDIT: Hey guys, launcher download is now available on moddb as we enter the beta-testing phrase!  Get it here: Moddb.com

What do you mean by "normal game"? JKG, yes. Jedi Academy, no.

Do you have Jedi Academy installed on your machine? It sounds like you are trying to point the jka install path to openjk, which works, but you have to make sure you have copied the asset files from Jedi Academy to your openjk install if you do this.

If you are stuck I suggest following this guide: Jkgalaxies.com

Short answer: Sorry it is multiplayer.

Long answer:
You are welcome to host your own server (locally) and play by yourself, but it'll be a bit boring as there is not a single-player specialized mode or campaign. If you're feeling it though you can always spawn some stormtroopers/rebels on a map and play alone against them for practice before heading out to an online server.

We hope to eventually implement a simple singleplayer tutorial mode, for practicing/when no one is online, this isn't available yet though.

To play alone open the console (shift + ~), then type: "/devmap xxx" (without the quotes, where xxx is the map you want to play on eg: jkg_ctf_bespin, or jkg_taris)

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 .
