JkGfxMod makes Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II look better and run on new computers

If you're struggling to get Jedi Knight running on a new computer, you should use JkGfxMod. If you're currently relying on Windows compatibility options, ddraw.dll hacks, or dgVoodoo2 to get the game working, you should consider JkGfxMod instead. It's a great alternative! JkGfxMod was created specifically for Jedi Knight, so it can provide features that more general tools can't.

JkGfxMod also makes the game look better. In addition to various postprocessing effects, JkGfxMod adds support and tooling for advanced materials. JkGfxMod was used to create the Jedi Knight Neural Upscale Texture Pack, which upgrades Jedi Knight with AI-generated high resolution textures.

Major features:

  • Makes the game work on new computers
  • Improves performance in certain scenarios
  • Better quality of life:
    • HUD scaling
    • No mode switching between menus and gameplay
    • Hardware-accelerated windowed mode
  • Better graphics:
    • 32-bit color
    • Gamma correction
    • Bloom
    • Ambient occlusion
    • Parallax mapping
  • Better mods:
    • Support and tooling for advanced, high-quality materials

2.0 Released!

Welcome to the Release of Star Wars Jedi Knight Mysteries of the Sith Remastered 2.0! This Installer just included the latest and greatest of the JKGFXMOD and the enhancement packs! First off the updating of the cutscenes is not in this release. Turns out is going to take a lot more work then I thought to update the cutscenes. So for now just enjoy the latest version of the mod. I am still looking for the future to update the cutscenes.

The Latest version adds the updated version of the JKGFXMOD v1.0.0, the Neural Upscale Texture Pack, the Enhancement Mod for JkGfxMod (MotS Edition) 0.50 and the FOV Mod all in a nice easy to use installer!

For some random reason, whenever I have the 3D acceleration on, I get a black screen, but when I have it off, I get to see a lot of textureless things in the game.

I don't have any music. I can't install the game from my CDs anymore so I had to manually copy all the needed files. and the weapons animations are way too fast
