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.
"Impressive.. Most impressive."
I have been around since Jedi Outcast was just an advertisement in a games magazine and... I couldn't WAIT to get my hands on and play it! Through the years after getting the game and it's sequel/expansion 'Jedi Academy', this mod I have always admired. For the amount of features it added and its take on the games Lightsaber combat.
Since the full source-code was released, it now became possible to attempt to make the dream.. OJP features ported into the single-player aspect of the game. The many features that I have added in my mod of outcast are primarily ported OJP ones, its because of the OJP team that this is at all possible.
I want to say thank you to all the team that made the OJP mod. You guys are incredible and what you achieved in modding Jedi Academy is nothing short of astonishing. This mod has set the standard very high, for 'new' Jedi Outcast/Academy mods to try and emulate.
To this day I would say that this modding project was the best thing to ever happen on the aforementioned games modding fronts. Even open sourcing your work; allowing others to learn from and use your coding - commendable to say the least, congratulations.
A great mod that really puts the game at a new level. I don't see why anyone would rate this below an 8
Perfect mode. Definitily fixes the saber system to make it more of a Jedi experience.
Turns the game into a deulists paradise, it require tactics and a sort of level of strategy to sword fighting I've never seen anywhere else. Each light saber style has its own advantages (you can choose from all 7 styles from the Star Wars expanded universe) but guns are not to be ignored either, you can choose to specialize in items and guns (like a jetpack, so turning your self into a bounty hunter like Boba Fett.
Its like everything you would want from a sword fighters perspective in the form of Star Wars.
Its multiplayer only though so you have to either find a server or play with friends but when you do, try playing it on custom maps like ones from the movies... it becomes so epic that all you really miss out on is story. But its just so good to see something like this come out of a modding scene of all place.
