Warzone installer and updater is now available for anyone who wishes to have a look at the alpha versions of the game.


* Requires an installed copy of the Jedi Academy game.

* Requires a 2GB video card at least and a fairly recent CPU. (4GB card recommended)

* If you have issues running the game on AMD graphics, use the AMD FIX.bat file once.

* The installer/updater/launcher will update all files each time it is run to the newest. It will also fix the game files.

* Always put the installer in it's own folder. DO NOT USE THE INSTALLER IN A FOLDER WITH ANY OTHER FILES OR FOLDERS INSIDE (other then the other files in this archive)!

* If you want to make content for warzone, copy the gamedata folder to another place and work on that copy (there are bat files in GameData to run the game), when the updater updates on the downloaded copy, it will reset any files to defaults.


Updated on 2020/05/25 To increase the speed of checking for updates, and remove the delay between download threads starting up.

Updated on 2020/05/17 To fix download issues with google, and adds download mirrors. Thank ғʟᴇxғʟᴇxᴇɴ™ for the mirror!

Updated on 2020/04/26 to improve download speed info and hopefully reduce download issues.

Updated on 2019/08/12 to handle creation of base folder link better, and inform the user if windows blocked creation of a link to the Jedi Academy base folder, and tell them how to fix the problem.

Updated on 2019/04/06 to hopefully make it force administrator rights, because windows thinks making a shortcut is not safe, making the launcher hang after it's finished downloading for some people.

Updated on 2019/01/10 to add new minimize and close buttons with hover glow effect.

Updated on 2019/01/10 to make it a borderless window, add download speed, and other info when downloading, and minimize to system tray.

Updated on 2018/12/27 to raise the max concurrent download connections from 2 to 4.

Updated on 2018/12/21 to add some improvements.

Updated on 2018/12/20 to fix issues with UAC and some other improvements.


LAUNCHER INSTRUCTIONS AND TROUBLESHOOTING:

1. Extract the Warzone folder inside the archive to some place on your hard drive (using WinRAR or 7zip).
2. Go to that folder and run the WarzoneLauncher.exe file.
3. It should automatically download all the warzone files.
4. Once the files are downloaded, it might ask you to show it where your jedi academy 'gamedata' folder is, if it does, then select that folder in the dialog.


If for some reason the game crashes at start (or does not start), there are 3 possibilities.

1. Make sure inside Warzone\GameData\ you see a 'base' directory. If not, copy your 'base' directory from your Jedi Academy game folder.
2. Most things can be fixed by simply restarting the launcher. It will continue any updates and fix any broken files.
3. Make sure you have the latest launcher, above. It has been updated multiple times the last few days.


If you have any problems, you can usually catch us on our discord by clicking the link in the new launcher, or the link below.


If in doubt, rerun the launcher.

SOME USEFUL CVARS (the ones I can think of off the top of my head - will add more later):

To keep # of NPCs always spawned (these are only temporary methods and will be replaced in the future with an event system):
npc_imperials #
npc_rebels #
npc_mandalorians #
npc_mercs #
npc_pirates #
npc_wildlife #

also, make sure npc_pathing is set to 0 (it should be by default).


WE ALWAYS NEED DEVELOPERS:
We are always in need of more people to work on Star Wars: Warzone. If you are a mapper or modeller, a coder or a sound engineer, or anything else, and think you can help out, send me a message!

Will Intel Graphics ever be supported?

It is possible to make it function, but it will run horribly and disable nearly all graphical effects. It depends on many things as to if this can be improved in the future. Sadly, i'm not getting much help here and only have so many hours in the day.

If you want to force it, check the help channel on our discord, where I recently helped someone get it running.

The launcher was updated on 2020/05/17 To fix download issues with google (calling us bots - oh the hypocracy!), and adds download mirrors. Thank ғʟᴇxғʟᴇxᴇɴ™ for the mirror!

There is also now a test server available to connect to, in the server list, again thanks to ғʟᴇxғʟᴇxᴇɴ™.

The new scarif test map has also been uploaded and is available to test.

Be sure to get the new launcher, and extract the files over the old ones and choose replace.

I'm having a problem with the actual download of the files in the launcher. I followed the instructions but the download is stuck at 11%. I've left it for about 20-30 minutes now to see if it continues but it hasn't. Is this a known or common issue? Really excited to get this working.

I know it was answered a while back that this could be played solo, but I am wondering if it can also be played without an internet connection.

If I try to crate a local Multiplayer for fun, it just goes back to main menu when I press BEGIN :/ Any ideas?

Do you have at least 8gb of ram in your computer?

Only other things I can think of are you may need visual studio 2015 runtimes, or need to update video card or sound card drivers.

Is there a way to use a ship to go directly from ground to space and vice-versa? That's my ultimate dream in a SW game.

Mine too. Not at the moment, but maybe one day... Not sure how I would do that with quake 3 code.

My dream is to replace the quake 3 bsp map format with a completely procedural universe. Think I would need help for that though.

Weel, for the moment open worlds in JA is very good. Also, are you planning to incorporate a lot of characters from the different SW eras (Old Republic, Sith Empire, Republic, CIS, Empire, Rebellion) like other mods such as Knights of the Force?

The currently planned story is based on the start of the rebellion. The empire is expanding to new worlds for resources.

There probably will not be too many known characters or locations (will probably only be a few known trade worlds, the rest are new or not really touched by movies etc), simply to avoid lore at this point in time.
