Hi, I prefer to run the game in 4:3 even on my 4k TV, thus 2880x2160. While it works, you'd expect the picture to sit in the middle of the screen with black bars on both sides. Not my case, the picture is completely left positioned and I can see wide piece of my desktop on the right side, next to the game. It is clearly fullscreen though, not a windowed mode. I have scaling 'Application' in compatibility and scaling 'Aspect' on GPU in nV settings, not that it would really react to any changes here. Any idea how to enable true 4:3 fullscreen here?

Questionable preference, however you need to force your custom resolution in the console:
r_mode -1
r_customwidth 2880
r_customheight 2160
vid_restart

If your screen still stretches the image in full screen try to modify the view in automatic instead 16:9 from your monitor options.

Well, I do not like cut cinematics and blank loading screens, so...

Anyway, I know how to set it, I already have it. The issue is described already, picture is not stretched, it just doesn't make the black bars on sides of the picture and keeps part of the desktop visible. I had to lower the resolution anyway (i6700 doesn't have enough power in single core to make it running 60fps on geometrically complex moments) and when GPU is forced to change the resolution, it displays 4:3 properly, so it's basically solved now.

Try also r_fullscreen 1, this should solve the problem of desktop view.

I'm having a problem understanding the install instructions:

"Copy "assets8_Fx" and autoexec.cfg files in "base" folder into your Jedi Outcast folder."

Firstly, there is no "base" folder in the mod archive package. Since there obviously aren't any files by those names in the "base" folder of the game installation directory, it must be referring to the mod archive files. So it would be better worded, "Copy "assets8_Fx" and "autoexec.cfg" files INTO the "base" folder in your Jedi Outcast directory.", or somesuch.

Assuming that my phrasing reflects what is meant, I've copied those two files into the game directory "base" folder, and the error message "game is version 7, not 6" appears when I try to run it. This has been mentioned before in the comments section here, where it was recommended to reinstall(which I have), and to "read the readme file and copy mod files." which - well-meaning as it may be, doesn't really clarify anything
.

Wondering if I should just use a different graphics mod to simplify everyone's lives.

Hi jiso, of course base folder is in your jk2 installation folder. And second, to install the mod you require only to copy 2 files and put them in the game. Widescreen dll file is optional, can be responsible for the error that you got, but if you want only texture improvements just copy assets8_Fx.pk3 and autoexec files. More simple than this..

HellBaron,

Thank you for this mod, along with the AI texture upgrade mod and the Enhanced Menu mod, it has made playing through this game again so enjoyable. I just have one tiny request. I used a mod called "ultimate weapons" and REALLY loved the wall scorching, burning hole effects and improved explosions. However, I didn't like some game changes it made such as changing force power sounds, adding a player avatar in first person lightsaber use,(the avatars shoulder was visible when running in first person)nor the over powered grenades that changed gameplay. I noticed you also had tk 231's effects in your mod but removed them, and I can't get his original mod to work by itself properly in my system, it causes weird artifacts. Could you possibly release a special effects mod based on tk 231's work as a separate mod, or possibly re-include int in your FX mod with and option to disable for those who don't want it? I just want it in my single player play through.

Thanks

I'll do not include again the effects made by tk231 cause the limitations of the engine about number of visible sprites. I experimented a lot with them but I keep vanilla weapon effects because are the best for any configuration and both sp/mp modes, same for sound.

I understand, but was wondering if you could make a separate mod just for those effects, not include them in your main mod. I just want to use them in single player so sprite limits shouldn't matter. Either that, or tell me what I need to do to fix TK 231's original file so that his effects work properly on my GTX 1080. They currently look like a bunch of little squares going everywhere.

Thanks

It looks like a video driver problem, you should check your video settings on nvidia panel.

It's not my driver, I have the latest, always kept up to date. Maybe its a mod order problem. I will try to move it around in its load order.
