Jedi Fighter development is back on since September! The Force Awakens helped rekindle my desire to get this thing done!

There will be a new release in December which will include the following:

  • Six fighters representing the dark and light sides, with unique special moves and force powers, that allow you to explore 3 different saber styles
  • Support for your favorite gamepads (Sony Dualshock 4/3, Xbox360 controller, Steam Controller, Gravis Gamepad Pro) with predefined and customizable profiles
  • A new (widescreen compatible) UI, including a cool title screen and fighter selection screen prior to the match
  • 4 arenas to fight in, including a Tie hangar bay, Hoth at night, and perilous catwalks in the depths of the Death star
  • Runs in the original Jedi Academy for Windows, available via retail and Steam. (If someone wants to volunteer to help with OSX and Linux builds that would be compatible with OpenJK, please contact me!)

Check out the new site, Jedifighter.com\wp! Closer to release time, that site will be updated to include help information, release info, download links, etc, and will definitely link back to moddb.

Thanks for reading!

Wow, that came out of nowhere!
Sounds like EoCIV might have some competition...

Nice work!

Thanks, and EoCIV looks pretty awesome too. The series of updates, the structured beta tests, and the note on your beta feedback looks like you guys have a good handle on your upcoming release. Looking forward to trying it out!

By the way, I modified Wudan's JAFont utility to create fonts with glyphs at any aspect ratio and much higher .tga resolutions to enable widescreen fonts. Things look great at proper 4K right now, and should look right even in 21:9 eventually...

I'll have info about it in an article in the next few days. Hopefully it'll be useful!

Thanks for the feedback, it's getting scarily close to launch now but the mod is pretty much finished apart from the menus and some other stuff, also thanks for the heads up on the font tool, I'll be interested to hear about it - sounds like it would be perfect for EoCIV if you're planning to release it?

If the Dualshock 2 works as a normal gamepad when using a USB adapter then it should work in Jedi Fighter also. I'll try to get a profile ready for it by release.
