Master your weapon. Master the Force. Master yourself. The Open Jedi Project (OJP) is an open source modification for Raven Software's Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. Aiming to develop innovative, fun features to the base game, OJP, led by Razor Ace, brings together dedicated fans to integrate their vision of what a Star Wars game should feel like with those of others. Open Jedi Project consists of two mods: Basic and Enhanced. Whereas Basic serves as an unofficial patch to fix bugs and increase the capacity for other modders to experiment in baseJKA, OJP: Enhanced breaks new ground with major overhauls to the Jedi Knight gameplay. Open Jedi Project Enhanced (OJP: Enhanced) makes major gameplay alterations that not only build upon existing features that make base JKA fun, but also introduces new features that greatly increase immersion into epic Star Wars battles.
Sorry for taking this down before, but this should be the more functional version of 0.1.1. This build was originally meant for forum goers and beta testers, but after a few version conflicts at servers we just started sending everybody who plays OJP to get it. It became very well reviewed and we decided to make it a bit more official by updating this page and a few others. You can get it at the OJP forums for now, and here soon.
Yes after much waiting and a lot of changes in the OJP community, we've released 0.1.1. This build was originally meant for forum goers and beta testers, but after a few version conflicts at servers we just started sending everybody who plays OJP to get it. It became very well reviewed and we decided to make it a bit more official by updating this page and a few others. You can get it at the OJP forums for now, and here soon.
Razorace, our long time leader has retired...a while ago actually, but we've carried on in a very strong way. I've taken over as lead designer, and Darth die has taken over as lead coder and he did the majority of coding work on this new version. Special thanks to Maxstate for his help in design and animation tweaks, UDM for his new menu (still being tweaked as well), Jack baldy and Wytchking for creating completely new animations, and all of you who helped beta test this new version. There are still some balance issues that will be addressed in our next release which won't be too far off I believe. Sorry about the delay of news here but we haven't had access to this page in a page in a while and we're trying to cut back on the number of versions we release since conflicting versions are like 90% of all the problems new players face. Anyways, Enjoy!
