Jedi Knight III




JA+ Mod 2.3 | 24.97 MB

name a few ... with the JA+ mod you can have multiple duels at once, even full force duels, and all of those duels can be isolated so there's no duel interference, there's clan tag protection, option of having multiple taunts, lots of new emotes, a profanity filter, model size scaling system, new items including a grapple hook (perfect if you've just downloaded the new Spiderman skin) and a ton of other features. The newest features for the mod include a Mac patch so that Mac users (are there any out there? If so, freakin' email me ... I have a map I need you to test) can start a JA+ server, a JA+ server tracker, the clan tag protection I already mentioned, and Slider improved some of the already present features. This is an incredible mod that I would definitely be using because it's so configurable if I still ran a JA mod. Great work here. But I wonder, will it ever be done? ;) ~AmosMagee[/quote] It seems to be spread on almost every server this mod. Whats so special about this version? Well I'm not going to list everything, since it would take years of scrolling, but these are a few of them: [b]New Player Animations:[/b] There are hundreds of interesting things here, you can now catch and hang onto ledges, to avoid falling. An extremely good thing for the movie makers out there. The new moves are cool, melee and saber moves. Holstering your saber, when you switch to melee your saber goes to your belt, and if it's a sword it'll go in a holster on your back. It makes the game feel much more 'Jedi-Like'. Excellent for all you Role Players out there. Amkiss, some people hate getting kissed by amkiss spammers, so there's an option to slap them by pressing the push key. [b]JA+ Sabers:[/b] There are a wide range of high quality saber models included with the mod, including the recent File of the week, Dragon's Wing v2, by hatrus. [b]JK2-like moves:[/b] There is an option that you can enable, that makes the moves and physics more like JK2, (Red DFA for example) [b]Gender Support for missing skins:[/b] What this is, is if you dont have a female skin, you will see someone who is wearing that skin as Jan, not Kyle [b]Dimensions[/b] This is somthing that might bring the FFA players and the Honor players together. In JA+ 2.3, there are 'dimensions', you type /amaltdim and you go to an alternate dimension (a no rules one) where there's no grapple hook, and you cant use admin commands on someone (except /amkick) there's no god-chat either there. This is an amazing feature which I'm sure will improve JA+'s status with FFA players. [b]Ampunish and Amslay removed[/b] Two commands that can be abused to hell have been removed [b]Bug Fixes[/b] A large number of bug fixes from the previous version are all here, check out the readme and stuff to see the list. That's just some of it, there's quite a bit here. Everything else is still there too, besides ampunish and amslay. Update your servers and enjoy the new features. -Rink [b]If you just want the client plugin go[/b] [url=;41256]here[/url]




Bloody Dismemberment | 167.38 KB

dismemberment in SP because it was write protected (or was this just a case of using the command line?) Anyway this mod makes it so everyone is dismemberable, everyone spews out blood AND you get the gore sounds too. This is not for the faint of heart or for those who distain from blood in video games - some people love the realism, some people find it very bad...then they go off on a tangent of blaming kids behaviour on it...but anyway! Actually on that note, let me quote the readme as it makes a valid point -Its a game. In the immortal words of Bart Simpson: Don't have a cow, man! -If you have an argument against blood, don't download this file. Talk about in the forums, please don't jam up the comments with arguments. See that? "please don't jam up the comments with arguments"...we don't like that here anyway so head the readme! It actually works really well! The blood looks very much like blood does in most games where it's there by default, clear puddles on the floor with splashes around it and a spray when you first strike someone, it's definately one of the better blood mods out there. Even down to the spot on color and transparency, all nicely done. I have to say thanks to the added noises too; they really make it stand out! -WadeV1589- [file="81937"]Check here for a JK2 version of this mod![/file]




Star Wars Movie Duels

md2_full.exe | 875.49 MB

now, regardless of whether or not you play SP mods. In fact, download it now even if you don't have the game. Go buy the game while you wait. :p Now, I know some of you may look at the file size and freak out - the installer is 875 MB. But it's worth every KB! I don't play SP mods very often, and I just couldn't stop playing. So, let's begin! First off, those menus are excellent. They are easy to navigate and they look nice. Two thumbs up for that alone. :thumbsup: One of the unique things about this mod is that you can play on the good or evil side in most of the scenarios. Taking the side that is supposed to lose usually has some creative storyline fact, it's quite fun for those people who just love being extraordinarily evil for no reason. Like the first version, the only movie-based duels available are the prequels. I guess it would be rather difficult to create duels based on the original trilogy, what with them being less epic and all. Episode I [b]Short Negotiations[/b] covers the very first fight sequence in Episode I, where Qui-Gon-Jinn and Obi-Wan are sent as ambassadors to Naboo to resolve the trade dispute. There are many embellishments here, but overall, it's true enough to the original story. [b]Outskirts of Tatooine[/b] is the duel between Qui-Gon and Darth Maul right before they depart for Coruscant. This one was mostly true to the story, the only thing it was missing was the bike at the beginning (unless I somehow missed it). [b]Duel of the Fates[/b] - Wowie! Very well done. Beginning in the hangar bay and moving into the purply-white-lightning-tube section, this one had it all. It seemed like every little detail was checked with a fine-tooth comb. Everything worked wonderfully, with one exception - when I took over as Obi-Wan and the force fields released, I ran backwards and was locked out. After a very long, patient wait, I decided it was time to noclip back in and finish the job. The ending cutscene did not disappoint, either. Episode II [b]Escape Jengo Fett[/b] is a recreation of the fight between Obi-Wan and Jango on one of Kamino's landing pads. I didn't play the winning side, so I can't say whether or not the fight is entirely accurate. When I played as Obi-Wan, the fight consisted of Boba flying around shooting while Obi-wan tried to slash him up. After enough damage was dealt, a fistfight ensued. [b]Tusken Camp[/b] should be pretty obvious by the name. Anakin is looking for his mother, and he has found the Tusken camp. The mission is simply to break into the tent from the back and discover your mother is dead. Then all tuskens must be destroyed. On paper, it's short, but in-game, it's a little longer than that. [b]Geonosis Arena[/b] begins with Windu's appearance during Obi-Wan, Anakin and Padme's execution. I had some serious problems while testing this one...when the battle began and I jumped into the arena, the game lagged terribly. I assume this is because of all the AI calculations happening at once - but still, I'm running a 2 GHz core 2 duo - I shouldn't have any problems with that. Immediately afterward, I was looking for the path to travel on next, and I stumbled on a door that could be force pushed. On opening it, I was able to walk outside the map and see the void in many areas. It was obvious I was on the wrong I turned back and found the correct one. After rescuing Shaak Ti, Jango Fett jumped onto the field. He was the final boss. [b]Battle of Geonosis[/b] was probably the least accurate. A large part of this is due to limitations of the engine and the lack of SP source code, so I'm not going to make a big deal out of it. I just expected "all forward positions are advancing" to mean that somebody, somewhere, was actually advancing. :p [b]Count Dooku's Escape[/b] is the long duel sequence at the end of Episode II with Count Dooku. Everything seemed accurate here, and I didn't see anything wrong. I think the force battle between Yoda and Dooku could have been elongated, but that would have detracted from the play time. Episode III [b]Rescue Over Coruscant[/b] - Defeat Count Dooku. Anakin and Obi-wan fight at first, then you go solo as Anakin. Not much else to say here. [b]Engage General Grievous[/b] includes the original confrontation on Utapau and the ending on the landing pad, where Obi shoots Grievous' insides out. It was a little short, but c'mon, did you really expect to see the entire chase scene recreated as well? [b]Arrest the Chancellor[/b] was probably the best one, aside from Duel of the Fates. Windu and his three Jedi accomplices walk into Palpatine's office to arrest him, and he fights back, saber in hand. Eventually you, as Windu, force palpatine to beg in the corner of the window, then Anakin shows up. From there, your destiny is in your own hands. [b]Attack on the Jedi Temple[/b] was hard. Only a few scenes from here were shown in the movie, like the killing of the younglings. But now, instead of the camera cutting away after your lightsaber comes on, you get to kill them yourself. On top of that, you have a lot of jedi to slice through on your way to the center of the temple. [b]Assassination on Mustafar[/b] involves only one faction - Anakin. You are sent to Mustafar to "take care of" Viceroy Gunray and the other separatist leaders. I was unable to complete the mission without noclip, however - I couldn't figure out how to turn off the force field. Otherwise, well done. [b]Retaking the Jedi Temple[/b] - Obi-Wan and Yoda have already fought through the clones outside, and now they need to clear out the inside of the jedi temple. Clones are everywhere, and some of them have more than just guns. This was pretty fun - I loved running around as little Yoda, dodging shots and jumping into someone's face. [b]Masters of the Force[/b] was the epic duel between Yoda and Palpatine, beginning in the room below the senate chambers and then moving up into the chamber itself for an extremely difficult end...the lightning that Yoda and Palpatine were supposed to shoot back and forth didn't seem to work right, though. [b]Battle of the Heroes[/b] recreates the most intense master/apprentice duel ever in Star Wars. Anakin and Obi-Wan go head-to-head on Mustafar, from the landing pad to the inside of the building, and even across the pipes and onto the equipment hanging over the lava. There was a bug here where Anakin disappeared during a jump sequence...but really, that's easy to overlook when you consider how epic the rest of the duel is. The Rise of the Empire [b]An Old Enemy[/b] - Obi-Wan is hunted down by an old enemy that he thought he defeated long ago. It's Darth Maul - refitted with robots legs. Now you have to finish him off...on a rainy tatooine. Yeah, that was a major eye-popper. Rain on tatooine. But the duel was very interesting. [b]Darth Vader's Redemption[/b] - to become a powerful sith lord, Vader must face his former self and defeat it for good. If he loses, Palpatine dukes it out with the good anakin. [b]A New Hope[/b] was a neat surprise. For you TFU fans, here you go - a mission with Starkiller in it. I don't care for TFU at all, but if you do, I'm sure you'd be happy to play this one. Challenge Mode And if all that wasn't enough, you can play in challenge mode, which takes you from duel to duel with all the major characters. You can customize the character you play as. According to the readme, there are 15 stages. I didn't get very far...I think I should brush up on those lightsaber skills. Along the way, I did spot many small graphical glitches and some areas I felt could use improvement. But I'm going to omit most of that - honestly, the vast amount of work that was put into this mod is incredible. Anyone with the commitment and patience to produce something on this scale deserves a huge pat on the back (at least) from everyone. There was one glitch on the menus that's worthy of note, though - Battle of the Heroes' missing description is incorrect until you start loading the level. One last thing I'll mention - at first, I had difficulty testing this out, because none of the maps would start. Instead, I would be kicked out to the main menu with no error message and no way to quit the game except ctrl+alt+del. After several hours of checking installations and making new isolated copies of the game, I remembered to insert the game disc. From then on, it was smooth sailing. You may commence jeering laughter at me. But remember - if you get an error while loading a map, you will get no error screen and instead will have to ctrl+alt+del your way out of the game. It's not a bug - it's an engine limitation, and it's just a minor side effect of having an awesome menu setup. If you still haven't started the download, do so, and play it when you get a little free time. You won't be disappointed. ~Dretzel




bloodPLUS Gore/Dismemberment Mod | 3.46 MB

here. v1.5 - the earlier release - features more of a "splat" variant, which while more moderate than the latter, is a tad more cartoony. I'll give the new sounds one thing to their credit - they sure are squicky. v3.1 differs from v1.5 in that it's more of a 'spurt' effect. Think GTA Vice City after blowing someone's limbs off, and you're not far wrong. Obviously, as with any mod that comes in two versions, only install one at a time. Other than that if you want a bit of 'realism' - or you're just one seriously sick puppy - this one may interest you. It's definitely more vicious than other blood mods I've used. ~ Kouen




Movie Battles II V0.0.2 - Full | 1.1 GB

never anything on this level. I present to you, Movie Battles II, the product of untold hours of work from some of the best and brightest skinners, mappers, coders and modder's ever to play Jedi Knight. I have to say a massive thank you right now to the Movie Battles II team, not only for allowing me to review their gargantuan mod, but also for allowing us to host the file here on JKFiles, where it will join the ranks of the most famous Jedi Knight mods of all time, here in our Great Library of Jedi Knight-exandria. ;) This is going to be a biiiigg review! Whew, where to start?! Well, firstly I have to say that although I really love the mod and think it is great how it has become so popular, popular enough indeed to have its own community within the wider JKA community, I cant help but feel a little worried. Why? Well, I cant help but feel that in order to produce a mod of such grand scope and fantastic quality, they have poached some of the best talent from JKA in general. For example, many of the incredible skins, weapons and even maps are only available for MB2, which is kind of a loss for the JKA community in generally, unless you are somewhat sneaky and take a skin out of the MB2 assets and pack it up for personal use in JKA. Ehm, not that I am endorsing that at all... muahaha... ;) Personally I would really love to see more of the MB2 assets available to base JKA players in general, since that would help keep [i]both[/i] communities strong and provide us with a long stream of excellent files to review! But that is of course up to the MB2 team and the individual authors. Since this is the latest version of Movie Battles II, what improvements does it include? Well, for a more comprehensive list you can see the changelog, but to highlight some of the major ones; [*] Multiple new maps, including the Emperors Spire and Malachor V [*] Updates to various existing maps, such as Duel of the Fates and Tatooine. [*] Fantastic mini-maps for most of the maps, which give you a detailed overview of your location in the map and the location of others, you can also enable a larger overview map from the Movie Battles II options. This is one of my personal favourite features! [*] Lots of new bug fixes. [*] Lots of new gameplay tweaks and improvements, including the abilities purchases using the points system (again, see the more detailed changelog for details!). [*] Some new weapon sounds and various improved effects. [*] Too many more to mention right here! So what kind of features does this gigantic mod have? Weellll... [b][u]Models and Skins[/u][/b] For starters, there is a vast selection of models and skins there are available to choose from, out of each class that you can choose from ingame, there are several, sometimes even a dozen or so, different skins or models you can choose from. For instance, the Sith Class features, among others; Darth Traya, Count Dooku, Jerec, several versions of Darth Maul, Darth Malak and even Darth Talon! And that is only one [i]class[/i]! Along with that there are yet more skins/models available in Full Authentic mode that are not available in Open mode, including, but not limited to; Darth Revan, Bastila, numerous Clone Trooper skins and other equally cool characters! (PLEASE MB2 guys, release that Revan skin for Base JKA, that would be an instant hit!). Bear in mind that these are all made by top notch modelers and skinners, and so all are fantastic quality. Most of the custom models/skins also have custom sounds to go with them, rounding them off nicely. Multiply this by the several classes that there are to choose from, both on the light and dark team sides and you get a he amount of skins and models, the work that must have gone into the skins and models along must have been huge. [b][u]Weapons and Effects[/u][/b] Then there are the new weapons and the effects that go with them. For instance, there is the Westar M5 and BlasTech A280 Blaster Rifles, (I happen to own a very nice A280 in Star Wars Galaxies ;)) as well as the Fallann Hyper Rifle as used by Zam Wesell in Episode II. Various weapons also have additional features which can be unlocked by purchasing points in the relative categories in the points screen, For instance if you fully upgrade the A280, not only do you get the ability to rapid fire, but also a sniper scope too, further increasing the weapons potency. That's not to mention the rocket launchers and various pistols and carbines, all modeled in high quality and with custom effects and sounds! Then there are several different kinds of grenades as well, which are available to particular classes (once you have spent the points to get them of course). While I am on the subject of effects, I should mention that you definitely need to play ingame to see how good they are, since no screenshots could do them justice. The way lumps of debris fly out of an explosion with a trail of dust and other such things are much more realistic than the Base JKA effects and definitely add to the combat. There are also two different levels of effects, normal; which is, well, normal, and high; which is more graphically intensive but also looks much better. Obviously if you have a powerful computer, you will want to use the full fat 'high' mode. But its good that there is also a lower setting so that people with older computers aren't shut out. The lightsaber blades and trails though are something pretty special. Unlike the base JKA saber blades and trails that we are all used to, when you swing a lightsaber in MB2, the trail actually looks like like the sharp blur (oxymoron's FTW!) of a moving lightsaber as you see in the films, rather than just a fuzzy trail out behind the blade like they are in Base JKA. The only other mod to my knowledge that has this impressive effect is the Open Jedi Project. PLEASE somebody make a mod which gives us these kind of movie realistic blades and saber trails in Base JKA! [b][u]Maps[/u][/b] Well, I already mentioned that this latest version of MB2 adds the Emperor's Spire and Malachor V, among others to MB2's already impressive repertoire or maps. Some of the other movie themed maps include, but are not limited to: Mustafar, Tatooine, Mygeeto, a Trade Federation Battleship (as seen at the start of Episode I), The Star Forge, The Valley of the Jedi, Kamino, Utapau, the Tantive IV and many, many more! The maps are the only area where I feel some improvements could be made, since some of them date to way back and aren't up to the same kind of standards of detailing and such that the newer maps are. That isn't to say older maps such as Lunar Base aren't great too, in fact gameplay wise they are just as good as the newer ones, I just feel they could do with a bit of a sprucing up detail wise. Speaking of Lunar Base, I just love that window which, when broken, sucks people out into space! In this new version, it also amazingly registers kills and team kills! Some of the best mappers around have made maps for Movie Battles II, and no doubt as more updates are released more maps and locations will be added. What is my favourite map? Well, that is a touch choice! So many of the maps are beautiful to look at (gotta love that Mustafar Skybox!) and feel alive and interactive. I did very much like the Malachor V Trayus Core duel map, since good KotOR 2 themed maps seem to be lacking from JKA, but I also liked Lunar Base because of its excellent layout and gameplay. But then Comm Tower is also a great map, and it reminds me of the original Jedi Knight and JK2 as well. Well, I guess I cant pick a favourite myself, not without spending a lot more time playing MB2 to find out all the ins and outs of each map anyways. As I mentioned earlier, many of the maps now also have mini maps which are displayed in the HUD, this is one of my favourite features as it actually shows a map, with [i]walls[/i], unlike the Base JKA radar map, which only shows objectives and such. This makes it much easier to tell where your team mates, objectives and enemies are in relation to the structure and layout of the map. That brings me nicely onto... [b][u]The HUD and Menu's[/u][/b] As well as having a nice new mini map, the entire HUD has been revamped with new graphics. There are two new indicators on each side of the screen for your health, shields, ammo, force and saber style, which look much better and sleeker than the base JKA ones. I personally would love to see these parts of this HUD used for a Base JKA HUD mod, if any of the MB2 guys would care to make one for us *nudge nudge*. ;) There is an options menu section dedicated to MB2 options, including setting keys for your class special actions (such as being able to sprint faster for a limited period etc.) and also a media section for setting your screenshot key, and the ability to set a key to record a Demo movie! Whilst I personally prefer to use Fraps, this is definitely a much needed option in JKA and one that I am sure people will find useful. The menu's overall are easy to navigate and look good, the main menu, with that picture of the sun bursting over the horizon of Coruscant is very nice, although I think it would be even better if there was a set of screenshots or images that the main menu background cycled through, just to add a bit more movement to it (since it seems a little still compared to the Base JKA menu, with its little video set in the middle). [b][u]General Gameplay[/u][/b] The main complaint that I have always had with Movie Battles II was that you can die quite quickly, and you don't respawn. That is unless you have spent points in the section which allows your particular class to respawn, 'reinforcements' I think it is called. This complaint has most likely come from being someone who has played and enjoyed a lot of Siege, a gametype in which the gameplay is fast and furious because people are constantly dying, respawning and running like headless chickens to get back into the action, making for some insanely frantic battles. Indeed on Siege Hoth, if you are a Rebel tech, its not uncommon to put up a shield on the bridge (to stop the AT-ST advancing) and then simply throw yourself into the chasm so you can die, respawn, and put down another shield. Since you often only get one life, maybe a few if you have spent points in 'reinforcements', in MB2 it stops this kind of insane gameplay, and thus it seemed a bit slow to me at first, since I died and then that was it. However, as I have played MB2 more, I have come to appreciate the delicately balanced game mechanics which go into it, and once I got used to it, the dying issue didn't bother me so much, though I still personally prefer the ferocious gameplay of a 16 vs 16 Siege game, but that's just me! :P The features I have mentioned above, such as the vast variety of weapons, skins/models and maps, along with different gametype's makes this pretty much a game in of itself and I can see who it has become so amazingly popular. The points system does take a little getting used to and you have to be quick when you start to spend those points where you want them before the round starts. The class system, and the abilities and weapons available to each can also be bewildering at first, but with a bit of practice you will soon get used to it! One nice new feature for this version is that you can now continue to move while using voice chat, which makes the process both quicker and less hazardous to your health. After all stopping in the middle of a fight to open up the voice options and find the button for 'roger!' is likely to get you killed! This latest version of MB2 is full of neat little features like that, and I am sure more of the same will be added in future versions so further enhance gameplay. [b][u]Conclusion[/u][/b] All in all a monumental mod, more of an entirely new game in itself to be honest. If you want to know more about what is new for this version, then you should check out the changelog which is in the readme section below. The full readme for the mod can be found in the .zip. The only downside with downloading this is the sheer insane size of it. In fact it is very close to the size of Base JKA itself! This is definitely worth a download, and you guys had better make sure this gets to the top of our download charts, since the MB2 team is paying me 2 Millio... uhh, did I say that out loud?! Umm, cookies, that's it, yeah they are giving me cookies to review this. They aren't bribing me with millions of dollars to give them a good review, not at all. Complete nonsense! Don't forget to view the videos below! ;) ~Nozyspy~ Subaru is awesome. There you go, I actually put that in here! View the video below to get a taster of what Movie Battles II is like: And here, for your viewing pleasure, a preview of things to come!




Enhanced Saber Realism | 8.75 MB

version 2 of the original mod. Panda expressly told the author [i]not[/i] to refer to it as such, but he seemed to feel the need to anyway, so just keep in mind that this is nothing more than an unofficial fix/update and that pandapop999 is already planning a [i]real[/i] version 2 himself. [i][b]Anyway...[/i][/b] This changes a few things from the original, mainly being that speed has been increased, boss NPC stats have been normalized, and dismemberment has been added. This should appease those people who felt that the mod moved much too slowly. Certainly an improvement over the original in some areas, but you'll have to decide for yourself whether or not you want to replace the original with this one. ~Inyri

Clone Wars Stances and Effects Mod | 24.76 MB

honest, some attacks make a shiver run up my spine. Not only that, but there is also added effects, such as, and I quote; New lightning effects, saber blades, and clashing effects. Not to mention new sounds for each of these! Lets start with the Blue stance. I'm not really sure how I'm supposed to describe this, but it seems to be a cross between the art of Fencing and the art of Stabbing at the Ground. As confusing as this sounds, the stance is actually really well done, with a unique spin to it. Literally! The usual Blue Uppercut has been switched around to, what I saw, a series of three spins, all attacking in front of you. This looks slightly silly in the middle of battle, not to mention it doesn't hit everyone around you. That is, unless my calculations were entirely off and I actually did hit that ninja that ran after me... The second portion of the stances involves the 'fabled' Yellow stance. Now, this looks like an honorable position, however is extremely dangerous if put into a real life situation. In short, you hold the saber at a vertical position, what seems to be inches from your nose. Oh, don't get me wrong, the stance looks awesome. It just doesn't seem... practical.... Oh right, the attacks. Most of the swings have been changed, but none so much as the awesome Yellow DFA. Jumping into the air, cutting at the opponents below you, and breaking into a roll has never looked this amazing. Ah, the last of the Single stances. This one is the combination between an axe murderer and a ballet dancer. This stance is possibly my favorite of the three, with an attack that literally caused me goosebumps. You remember the first attack Chancellor Sidi- I mean Palpatine did against those Jedi? Yeah, the one where he spun in a circle, while jumping. Wasn't that cool? I thought it was, which is probably the reason I love Red Stance. The Red DFA has been turned into what I like to call SuperSidious. Now that we're done with the Single stance, lets move on to the speed demon Dual stance. This looks like something out of Soul Calibur, which makes me a very happy person. Alas, that happiness turned into confusion when I pulled up the Dual 'Uppercut'. It seems the player has a tendency to spin their wrists to the point where they would fall off, and they keep going. That confusion turned into happiness again at the end of the first part of the attack, where the user would repeatidly stab the opponent. And it looks awesome. The Dual DFA was harder to pull off, as I was constantly low on my Force power after defeating Raiden, God of Thund- oh, right, review. The user constantly swipes horizontally with both sabers, ending with something I... don't actually remember. I think I was electrocuted right before I did it... Ah, the Staff. Quite an impressive device. Not only can you stab someone in front of you, you can either stab the guy behind you... or even yourself! Jokes aside, the staff has been changed. To my recollection, I remember the stance has been turned into a more docile, calm stance. The Staff 'Uppercut' has been turned into what seems to be a Lightsaber Helicopter. No, you can't fly. It ends with a repeated spinning stab move. The Staff DFA is similar, just without the Helicopter move. This time, the entire body spins in midair, attacking all directions. Whew! So, the saber stances are over and done with, right? Nope! The stances also involve a new walk, which looks amazing if you're into the whole sword-at-side vengeful samurai 'you killed my father' stereotype. The run is the same for each Single stance, which beforementioned samurai can explain, but the Dual makes you run with your arms behind you, and Staff makes you run with the saber in a Bo-staff position. Melee stance has been changed, although it would be extremely useful if the hands were at your side in melee, instead of in front of you. Kinda like idle-saber. To be entirely honest, I never actually used the Force powers, but I did see some difference in the saber. I believe it's brighter, with a more realistic feel to it. The clash effects are gorgeous, especially when I accidently Yellow DFA and decapitate my opponent throught their saber. Yes, I did that on accident... The only few qualms I have are actually quite fixable. First, some attacks look entirely strange, meaning the spinhand in particular. The second one is that melee stance, also fixable with the right coding which I know Hirman has. Finally, the part that this is not an OJP modification like the last ones. I know it's stressful, and I know I don't play OJP, but other people might enjoy this on it. Installation has been provided in the Readme (PLEASE read the readme, it's there for a reason. We can't just random generate these things, you know!), and most modifications are acceptable with things such as Movie Battles II and Jedi Academy Plus. -FILE- New Sounds - Yes New Animations - Yes New Overall - Yes -Denariax-




The Force Unleashed Pack | 675.12 KB

I'll leave the accuracy up to you, but I find the design to be spot on. The saber half of this mod is definitely a keeper. Normal and backhand versions are available. Oh, and did I mention the animation changes to the backhander? :P [b]Effects[/b] From clashes, to lightning, to saber blades, the overall quality of the effects half is rather good. Personally, I find the saber blades to be the best part, but that's a matter of opinion, unfortunately. :P Overall, a nice little mod, and worth the download if you like that saber! ~Crazy [i]Ah, nothing like a nice and short review, eh?[/i]

Then download this mini-mod. It will satisfy that need you have for dismemberment. ~AmosMagee




-A- Hilts | 2.71 MB

have custom stances and some have altered sabers, like the really short one. The only hilts that I didn\'t really like were the reversed saber ones. Like, you hold the hilt in front of you, with the saber behind you, sorta. You\'ll have to test the hilts to see what I mean. Some of the hilts here, I really like, but I\'d rather use the hilts without the altered stances and animations. This hilt pack didn\'t really need any new sounds added. They are, after all, still just sabers. And I\'m glad there are no new sounds, actually. As much as I like some of the hilts here, I won\'t be keeping this pack. There are just too many here that I don\'t like. But the file size is small enough that it shouldn\'t be too much of a hinderance for you guys to download it. So, enjoy. :) ~AmosMagee




All in one saber sounds | 2.73 MB

saber sound mods that I\'ve liked much for that reason. But some people feel that saber sounds like the ones featured in this mod are more \"realistic\" and therefore prefer these sounds. Kudos to Aryyn for giving us some choice in our saber sounds. You have some updated \"normal\" saber sounds to choose from, or go with the more scratchy Sith sound, and if that doesn\'t float your boat, there\'s always the Luke and Yoda saber sounds that have a more \"powerful\" swooshing sound. If you\'re interested in some new saber sounds for Jedi Academy, this is a good place to start. ~AmosMagee




Ingame Character and Saber Menus | 8.16 KB

they look while playing, I would either have to start a new game each time I wanted a new part of the skin, or memorize the code for that particular part, both of which were annoying. Well, I now have a mod that will get rid of that problem. What this does is allows you to bind a key to open up the character select screen in SP, allowing you to change how your character looks. It also brings up the saber select menu once you have finished with the character select. Unfortunately, for it to take effect, you have to turn cheats on and type in \"playermodel player\" or just bind a key to do that. Overall, I think that\'s a small price to pay to do what this mod allows you to do. Hopefully a version two will get rid of the need to turn on cheats and reset the playermodel yourself... Give it a download if you find this as useful as I do.




OJP Enhanced | 23.61 MB

a new review, as screwing around with said mod a little more allows for more beef. We'll attack some general features first, that will affect all players. [b]General Features[/b] XP System: No longer are points just for strutting around like a chicken whilst you hawk how good you are whilst you secretly cry inside realizing you have nothing better to do than bully kids in a video game =_O Now you have to earn some kills, and gain power =_= each time you join an OJP server, you will have a minimum set of experience points that you can allocate to gain a number of weapons, gadgets, saber stances, and force powers. I screwed around in the Abregado Casino map and gambled for points, and I found that you have to actually kill either a bot or an actual player to gain experience points. General ratio seems to be 3 kills = 1 XP. There are in fact some XP allocation rules(these being but a few): - At certain XP levels, certain stances are locked from the player. - Force Jumpers cannot invest in Jetpack, and vice versa - A player must have 1 point in sense minimum to be a force user. - Certain levels of force user can only invest in one level of gun usage to prevent that "god character" factor. A good thing to note is that if you're in a hurry to get to the real fun, you can skip the whole "Kill, kill KILL, KILL, KILL" and avoid having to stack up all those kills just to get that toy you really want by adjusting the minimum XP count in the advanced server settings. One could also lock certain powers and weapons from here as well, as well as adjust a setting on this: - Timer System: Have trouble with people killing themselves constantly? Chill them out by making them have to wait with a modified siege timer that prolongs spawning until it runs out. Whilst it can be very annoying, it's also very useful for setting points in between bouts of madness and violence. Don't like the timer on your server? Just set 'er to 0 and you can jump right back in. - Holster System: Gunnery is now a more important aspect in this mod(more on that later,) and as such, the team found it appropriate to make things more realistic by coding in a nice system to holster your guns on your character whilst you are not using them. Only irk I found was that saber holstering really doesn't look good strapped to the front of your thigh, nor does it look comfortable. Yes, I'm guessing it's probably the whole "belt" thing, but on most models, it doesn't seem very applicable. - Improved Bots and NPCs: There are some of us out there that don't have the expensive equipment to fight all the time against other players on the internet. Never fear, as the bots have been tweaked to use the OJP saber and gun systems accordingly. Experiment around, as some bots are inclined to use guns, whilst some use sabers. NPCs are now no longer psycho sugar addicts like they were in JA+, and now fight normally. Even the force using cultists do something instead of standing there punching the air idly! A lot of the old functions in JASP work as well. The howler now lives up to its eponymous name(although it doesn't seem to hurt yet.)The assassin droid returns and now effectively has a working forcefield.Even more interesting is that, should you fall to the new NPC AI, most of the time it will actually register as a kill as if you were slain by a player. Example being this most recent one: "Averus Retruthan was blasted by Boba Fett" That was me deciding to let an NPC kill me =_,=. Naturally not all the AI is up to absolute snuff, and there are still bugs to be worked out (I.E. some of the non-human NPC's guns are in the wrong places still,) but it's definitely a 1-up on the older MP AI. - Dodge, Force, and Mishap Meter: One of the more critical elements of gameplay now relies on these three meters. These will control how long you will in essence "live," forcify, and still remain accurate, respectively referring to the above order. More will be applied as the necessary sections arrive. - New Animations: A plethora of new animations from ledge grabbing to a proverbial backhand attack lie in wait for you. Take a look around and see what you can spot =_o! - New First Person view: Gunners and saber users alike can experience battle now from the eyes of their player. Gunners will notice almost immediately that the gun is no longer at like..chest height. You can now look down and see where your gun is, and not feel like a total chode when -CO-OP Mode: Haven't had a chance to try it, but now you can try SP in Cooperative mode =_=! and finally.. - Vehicles: An older, not-as-remembered feature of OJP was that it was going to amplify vehicle functions in some respects. Unfortunately, there's not many functions to speak of on that part, as it seems to have been lost in the quest for saber research, but some vehicles now have some new alternate functions usable only in OJP. The only examples I can think of at this time are: - The droideka can now rotate in place instead of having to back up and go forward like a cheap RC car. (Found in -;31144)) - The [file="53196"]Tie-Phantom[/file] vehicle now has an active cloaking function on it. Interestingly enough, some of the vehicles seem to attack on their own if not possessed by a player. These are just but a few of the new general functions, I'm sure, but hopefully enough to have kept you going up until this point =_= now we shall attack the gun and force user aspects, in that order. [b]Mercenaries and gunnery[/b] Guns have finally returned as a force to be reckoned with. Guns are no longer dwarfed by saber using force users now. Cunning can be used effectively now, with the new gun effects. General features of the weapons include: - Ammo Clips/Reloading: every weapon now has less ammo on the count. Out of ammo? Good, reload =_= - DEMP2, Trip Mines, Concussion Rifle? Locked out unless you use cheats. - As forementioned, all guns are now no longer in your first person view by default. It's now more realistic =_>. - Thermal Detonators now can be thrown with a new bind, so you no longer have to actually select the thermal and chuck it. Range is limited though,so don't try and throw it too far. - Gun accuracy is decided by your level of XP in that slot and mishap meter. High mishap = start missing, even if aimed properly. In some cases, if you're not careful, you can be knocked down as well. Dodge will help you evade some of the more lethal attacks whenever necessary. Now, I'll report the effects of each weapon: - Blaster Pistol: Much more powerful shot. At level 3, you get a second pistol at your disposal, and your alt fire is activated, doing mishap damage to enemies, usually knocking them down if you power it enough. Suggestion: Allow the second gun to be an alternate upgrade, like the speed and ammo upgrades for the later guns. - Melee: Effective and useful when outta ammo. - Blaster: Good balanced weapon with an available rate of fire upgrade. - Disruptor: Power seems to vary now with charging in scoped mode. - Bowcaster: An effective powerhouse, now with available scope function at level 3 and a chargeable bolt (doesn't multiply.) - Repeater: Converted into a DC-15 clone rifle. At level 3, an available ammo count upgrade can be made, and the blob can be now fired at the cost entire clip. Quite effective, as the blob now induces knockdown and acts as an explosive(which will be covered later.) - Flechette: Converted into a T-21 Rifle. Rate of fire controled by your tapping power. Damage is a little weak and sparse, in my opinion. - Rocket Launcher, Thermal Detonator, Detpacks: Weapons of the explosive kind don't seem to actually do immediate damage. If your dodge is high enough, and depending on where you are on the blast radius, you will be knocked pretty far. There's sadly no shrapnel or misc. damage, assuming you aren't knocked high enough where the fall will immediately kill you(a good percentage of the time.) If your dodge is low...well then, your body will be BLOWN TO PIECES AND ANNIHILATED. Now, onto the gadgets: - Bacta: Level 1 earns you small bacta, level 2 gives you big bacta - Jetpack: The jetpack has been reinvented with a new dynamic animation system. Lot more heights can be reached with this jetpack, and quite quick. Runs on fuel, of course. - Cloaking: Not much change. Still runs on fuel. - Flamethrower: huge flamethrower effect that runs on fuel. Quite impressive to behold. - Seeker Droid: Now fires stun charges, and if you hit the Use Item button, your Seeker will detach away from your perimeter and actively seek you out. - Sentry Gun: Setup time required, but is a lot more durable and reliable. - Forcefield: Now lasts longer, takes more impact, and even knocks 'tards who run into it down to the ground. This covers the basics of mercenary combat. Now... [b]EPIC FORCE USER COMBAT[/b] Considered to be the proverbial "gem" of the entire mod by the makers, saber combat has been completely redone, and converted into a powerhouse of cinematically epic system of clashing, pwnination, and strategy. Mishap, Force, and Dodge Points now are tested to their limit. Force controls force attacks, including saber swinging. Low FP = slower swings,less force ability. Low Mishap can result in a slowbounce, stagger, knockdown, or even disarming your opponent of his saber! Also, you have to be a lot more careful in watching you and your opponents movements, as you won't simply just swing and hope it hits. You can now engage your opponent with Shii-cho, Djem-So, Soresu, Ataru, Nimen, Juyo, and Makashi(




UltimateWeapons | 14.52 MB

Version[/file][/b] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Well here it is finally! The Ultimate Weapons mod v1.3! I reviewed the trailer for this a few weeks back and was deeply impressed with what I saw. Realistic explosion physics and effects, better weapons sounds and better weapons effects too, I was eagerly awaiting the release of this mod, and now…here it is! And it certainly doesn’t disappoint! What we have here is a very comprehensive collection of both some of the author’s own work, and the best of other modder’s work too, all compiled into one all encompassing mod! There’s simply too much for me to describe here, so I will get right to the best bits! [b]New Sounds[/b] As far as I could see (or should I say heard?) it seems like every weapons sound sets have been replaced with movie accurate sounds. One of the most noticeable is the sounds for the E-11 Blaster rifle. To be honest I wasn’t that fond of the default JKA sounds for the E-11, they seemed a bit too high pitched. Thankfully this mod completely changes the sounds to ones that are much more like those you actually here in the films (like the detention center breakout from A New Hope). I also liked the change of sounds for the Flechette launcher and Bryar pistol too. All in all a vast improvement over the default JKA sounds, and that goes for all the weapons! Also included are new lightsaber sounds, which sound more like the ones from the Original Films and also the original Jedi Knight games, along with new sounds for force powers and melee attacks too. I liked the change of the force power sounds, they now sound much more discreet and realistic compared to the rather loud default JKA ones. [b]New Weapons [/b] Here the mod gets even better. Not only does it have completely new sounds, there are also four new weapons or should I say, replacement weapons included. Three are the Bryar pistol, E-11 Blaster rifle and Thermal Detonator from the JKA Dark Forces 2 mod (which replace their respective default weapons), and the other is the DC-15A more commonly known as the Clone Trooper blaster rifle, from the Movie Battles II mod. The new improved repeater rifle, with new shot effects and sounds looks much better than the original, but if you want a change from that, just put the optional DC-15A .pk3 in your base folder and the repeater is replaced with the clone rifle. The Wookiee Bowcaster has also been given a good polish up, as have some of the other weapons. [b]New Weapon Effects[/b] Along with new sounds and some replacement weapons this mod also has new weapon effects. For example, new muzzle flashes and blaster bolts. The projectiles for the repeater rifle have been changed to look bluish and the secondary fire has been changed as well, which I think looks great. Its pretty similar with the rest of the weapons, the E-11 blaster bolts have been changed, and now look much better, as have the firing effects for other weapons. The lightsaber has also received an upgrade with new blades made by D'halaine to look more like the saber blades seen in Episode 3 One interesting case is the Bowcaster. We all know that in the JK Games thus far (at least Mysteries of the Sith, JK2 and JKA) the Bowcaster bolts have traditionally been green. However, if you look at the original films, the Bowcaster bolts are actually red. This mod changes the green bolts to red, thus making it more realistic to the films. If though, you don’t like the red, there is an extra .pk3 you can put in your Base folder, which will change them back green again. But not only does it change the colour, it also improves the green Bowcaster bolt effects, so it is now much improved. [b]New Particle Effects[/b] This was one area I was super happy with! It seems to be an unusual (mostly male) characteristic that we like watching things explode and blow up. Whilst women on the other hand like nice quiet romantic stories…well give me a few explosions any day! :P Well I am very happy to say that the explosions and particle effects have been [b]massively[/b] improved over the default JKA ones. The explosions now actually look like powerful the explosions that you would expect to get from Thermal Detonators or Rocket Launchers. Along with that are all the little chunks of things and sparks and shrapnel that fly everywhere (very realistically). Along with the explosions is the new blaster hit effects. Instead of just a black blob on the wall (or indeed another player!) when you hit it with a blaster bolt, you now get what looks like a proper hole that’s been blasted out. Along with that you also get little glowy bits in the middle, and even a small tongue of flame (also like we saw in the movies when a Stormie blasts a chunk out of a wall). [b]Extras[/b] On top of all of that, as I have already said, there are some replacement weapons, and a handy .pk3 file for changing the Bowcaster bolt colours around from red to green and back again. Then there is also another couple of optional .pk3 files, which you can choose to use. One is a .pk3 file, which is called; ‘zzz_UltimateWeapons_LQEffects.pk3’. As the name suggests if you find that your computer is running slowly with the full-on-super-high-quality effects, you can put that .pk3 in your base folder and it makes the effects simpler and less taxing on your systems resources, which is great if you have a slower computer. I really think that was a nice thing to add in there, as it makes the mod even more accessible to people. :) Lastly we have another optional .pk3 which disables the blood effects in the mod. Personally I’m not that fond of blood effects, since laser bolts and lightsaber blades would in reality cauterise the wound and should stop it from bleeding…there goes my geek side again! :P The blood effects are on as default in the mod, but if you don’t want them to appear, you can put the ‘zzz_UltimateWeapons_NoBlood.pk3’ in your base folder and this will remove the blood splatter effects. [b]Conclusion[/b] All in all then an absolutely fantastic mod here, and what is more, it works in Single Player too! Though there is the possibility that this mod will conflict with other weapons mod’s and such, but that is to be expected considering how many things this changes. So if you want to know more about that, take a look in the files readme for more information. To be honest, this compilation is as close as I think it is possible to get to a perfect all round weapons mod for Jedi Academy, it truly recreates the movie feel in the game. And personally I think that this really breathes some fresh life into JKA when you play it. Fantastic work here D'halaine! I [i]very[/i] strongly recommend a download here, you wont be disappointed! :D ~Nozyspy~




Saber Realism | 8.74 MB

let me cover the basics of what it changes:[list][*]manual blocking[*]slowed combat speed[*]one-hit saber kills[*]massively increased automatic blocking (for compensation to the above point)[*]new saber sounds[*]other stuff listed in the read-me which I didn't get a chance to test (so read it!)[/list]My favorite bit here is the slowed combat speed and the increased blocking. It's a filmer's dream! Not that I make films... :p. Anyway, I am talentless when it comes to JA, but I managed to have some pretty awesome looking fights using this mod with only a mere reborn. So anything that makes JA cooler is a bonus in my book. Then there's the "realism" angle; after all, it's in the name of the mod! Does this make saber fighting more realistic? [i]Yes![/i] When was the last time you saw [i]any[/i] Jedi take 10 hits with a lightsaber before going down? Puh-lease. Is this increased realism a good thing? That's debatable. I like it, because I think despite the one-hit-kills it's still quite balanced (which is where a lot of similar mods fail). When he says blocking was beefed up, he really means it. In case it wasn't clear earlier, there is still automatic blocking. The manual blocking is in [i]addition[/i] to it, and it works as advertised (read the read-me for that). If you want to use this mod in multiplayer, though, you're going to come across a few problems. I'm guessing, based on the batch file, that this mod was designed for SP. In MP some notable "bugs" are the clash effect doesn't work, manual blocking doesn't seem to work, and (maybe it's just my imagination) but the sabers seem faster than in the SP. Overall it's not really working too well in MP, although you could certainly still use it. The author may want to think about working it into a usable MP mod as well, if possible. Did I mention he removed the red stance? :D (Don't cry, it's supposedly coming back in the next version. Except less ghey.) I have [i]one[/i] gripe. The sounds! No, they're not bad. They're just... well, the most common swing sound is like... a fast swing sound. And none of the swings are fast. It bothers me. The author better fix/change it or I'll cry. :p Now if that isn't a [i]minor[/i] gripe, I don't know what is... Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go play through single player to see what else has been changed. :p ~Inyri




First Person Lightsaber Mod | 1.79 KB




JA Unlimited | 1.09 MB

no visible limits on how many sabers you could actually have, but I guess I may have been wrong or I simply never had that many sabers. Even if you were under the limits, though, only twenty or so appeared on the list and the console was necessary for the others. With JA Unlimited, virtually all sabers will appear on the menu (obviously it's not really unlimited, but it may as well be) and there ceiling limit on how many you can have has been turned into the roof limit - 'tis much higher. Higher than I was able to reach with every lightsaber, sword, baseball bat, axe, halberd, polearm, voulge and God-only-knows-what-else I could procure from JKFiles. Since saber switching via /saber only appears to work in JA+, this is great for anyone not using these mods, since you no longer need to know the .sab designations to load your sabers. - Maps Again, you can usually have as many maps as you'll need, but now they'll all show on the menu so that you don't need to open pk3s in Pakscape/PakRat (shout-out for you Maccies out there ;) ), find the bsp name and use /devmap to load your maps. Great improvement in my book, helpful for those who don't check map pk3s by default, or don't know how to. - NPCs Now, this one you did have a limit on, and that limit is basically kaput. You can now have as many NPCs as you'll need - again, I'm figuring 65535 being the ceiling limit, but you'll probably never reach that many - without that pesky ".npc extensions are too large!" error in multiplayer. Score one for no annoyances! - Vehicles Oh yeah. Now we're talkin'. If you're like me and enjoy going to town with some serious vehicular manslaughter, again, this is the mod for you. No more .veh extensions errors, and the error with .vwp files (which were still at factory limits in the last release) is now fixed, so you can have as much firepower as you need in the base folder. - Models / Skins Considering the game can hold as many models/skins as you can use, I always found it kinda dopey that there was a limit on the amount of icons, but that limit is now gone. - Species Selections The limit was previously 32. Now, it's... what is it again? 65535 or something like that? Ain't that quite a resume? [b]Disclaimers[/b] ► This will [b]not[/b] work in the singleplayer game - source code for the SP DLLs was never released. Strictly MP only, sorry folks. ► Naturally, SP won't work at all if you're over any limits, so basically, my advice: don't put mods in base, make a seperate mod folder for this and dump your files in there, then launch this mod via .bat file. That way you can have as much as you need in MP, without shafting SP. ► Limits are there for reasons, as Kat Angel quite rightly states in the readme. Even though this mod means the game won't object to extreme amounts of mods, please try and factor in how much the iD Tech 3 engine can handle, and how much your computer can handle. If you have too much in your base folder, your game will take ages to load. The more you have, the slower it gets. The less RAM your computer has, the slower load times pass. The slower your CPU, the slower load times will be. You also risk your computer randomly shutting down, restarting, or random crashes by having more than the computer can handle. So, basically, if you never use it, don't keep it, 'cuz the more you got the more strain your system takes. Right, safety warnings and summaries out of the way, I think we're done here. Overall, great mod for you "pakrats" (no pun intended). If you play baseJA and like to use a lot of add-ons, this is a sure-fire winner. ClanMod version and OJP Basic / OJP Enhanced versions in the queue, uploadin' em as we speak (type? speak?). No JAE yet, sadly, so there's Kat Angel's next homework assignment. :p Now, if you don't mind, I'm going to go equip my game with every fighter, bomber, assault walker and tank I can get my hands on. World War III ain't gonna fight itself! :o Erm. Well. Nuts. I need a catchphrase. ~ Kouen




ForceMod III - Return of the Sith (Win Installer) | 39 MB

Academy. ForceMod III - Return of the Sith gives you the option of nearly 30 different classes. I can\'t even list all of the classes here, there are just too many. But as an example, as a Jedi Warden, you get a limited number of force powers, a lower saber attack level, but you get a Bryar. As an Aurorian, you get all light side force powers (up to level 4!) and level 4 attack and defense at max, but no other weapons other than your sabers. There are many other variations on these limitations which really seem to balance the mod/game. There are several new stances added - some specifically for single, dual or staff sabers. Some of the sabers are destructable as well. There are many new special moves added and a ton of other stuff including, but not limited to, cloaking, flame gauntlet, optic radar and a jetpack. There\'s just so much here, I really can\'t cover it all. Download this mod and check it out. I wouldn\'t be surprised if this starts popping up on a bunch of servers. :D ~AmosMagee




-[SithLords]-Pack | 14.69 MB

So now they\'re supposed to be sith lords or something like that. Okay, so you have a bunch of black and white and gray Jadens, what can be improved? Well first off you could make it so that they don\'t overwrite the default Jadens when you load it. How does one do this, you ask? Look at the file structure for the skin, and eventually you\'ll figure it out. But the big thing here, is to make it so that your base Jaden skins are not overwritten. Why? Because when they are, every part is overwritten. There are other parts to this mod, like being only able to use force jump and the saber attack and defense powers, but the main thing in this mod was the skins. Bot Support: No Team Support: No Npc Support: No New Sounds: No ~Zach




Saber Selection | 4.89 KB

does just that. Think of it - Jaden with a saber staff during training... Okay, maybe it\'s not [i]that[/i] appealing, but maybe it\'ll spice up single-player a bit. Either way, a useful little utility to have, in case you\'re one of those who still plays single-player from time to time. ~Inyri




Survival Mod 2: Revenge Of The Droids | 31.32 MB

2: Revenge of the Droids. I'll admit that I cheated while playing this and I still didn't get past like, the second room (when I played as Immy). The enemies just keep coming! You can play as four seperate characters and it looks like each one of them has a different map that you play through. I only tested Immy and the Clonetrooper. I don't know how long it took IZaNaGI to make this mod, but he put an incredible amount of work into this. Yes it's a large download. Stop whining and download it. If you enjoy single player stuff, then you're going to love this. If you don't cheat, then it is quite a challenge. I will probably play through this when I have more time. :) That's two great SP maps/mods that I've reviewed this week. :D ~AmosMagee




Katanamaru Backhand Styles | 13.08 MB

sabers. -------- To start off, I\'d like to point out something that wasn\'t made entirely clear in the readme: [b]This mod is meant for Single-Player[/b] Now, the actual animations aren\'t that bad, but there\'s clear and definite room for improvement. To start, I found the slashes to be veeery slow compared to their normal counterparts. Not only that, but attempting to use any of the single-saber stances result in not being able to move at all. Also, the block/deflect animations still act as if you were wielding normal sabers. On the plus side, what the author did to the left/right lean animations was pretty clever. But then there\'s the cinematics. Well, to put it simply: [b]Just skip them.[/b] Why? Because Jaden Galen simply stands there, no animation at all. Probably has something to do with how the backhand stance is achieved. But aside from that, this stance pretty much works. Only a hand-full of problems to deal with. You\'ll know if you want if, you backhanded addicts. :P ...Why are you still reading this? Seriously, you\'re creeping me out... -.o ~Crazy ...Ok, seriously, stop reading already!! I\'m warning you...




xMod - NIX (2.3.0) | 739.72 KB

also make the game more enjoyable in many cases. Things such as x_flipkick will make many people happy who enjoy being able to flip kick while x_profanity_check will please many admins who want to cut out profanity in their servers. One I do NOT like though is x_jawa_model as there is nothing wrong with that model anymore and I will be getting peaved if I go on servers to find it is disabled! I went to their site to help me get an insight to the mod and I came across this (admittedly lengthy for a review) \"What is xMod2?\", I think this is a very good way of summing up just what it is, better than what I can do! Quote: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- What is xMod 2 you ask? Well it\'s simple. Back in early 2002, Raven and Lucasarts teamed up to create one of the best games in Star Wars history, Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. The game brought a unique mix of Star Wars and Competitiveness. Players could play for their liking of Star Wars, or for their thirst for gaming in First Person Shooters. It was a game that developed into a fast paced shooter game filled with innovativeness not seen before in the PC world. A year later... Raven\'s game Jedi Outcast began to die as more and more news came out about their upcoming release Jedi Academy. Everyone in the JO community was psyched. The month of the release came, then the week, then finally the day. Many gamers rushed to the nearest PC Store hoping for an even better game than Jedi Outcast, with new and improved gameplay mechanics and more. What they got was nothing more than Jedi Outcast + eyecandy. Jedi Academy was a disappointment for many. Not only did the first month include a non-functional Server Browser, but also players wouldn\'t go for the Jedi Outcast plus a few fancy, yet useless, moves. Not only that, but some of the most key moves of Jedi Outcast used to make combos was removed, and thus the only way to kill your opponent was holding Mouse1 and W.(Attack and Forward, if you use default keys) Enter xMod. When the SDK was released, xMod creator and pioneer =X=Master HeX went straight to work in an all night frenzy to restore some of the key components of Jedi Academy. xMod 2, the sequel to the amazing xMod of Jedi Outcast, now reunites players with gameplay that is not made for a person who has just picked up the game. xMod 2 neutralizes the gameplay in Jedi Academy, changing it to a game that is actually playable. All the options in xMod 2 are exactly that, optional. This allows for the most control over your server putting the admin back in the driver\'s seat. All in all: Raven failed us, but HeX has made Jedi Academy a game that can proudly wear the Jedi Knight series name, and has thus saved the series we have grown to love. Welcome to xMod 2. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [/quote] Now let me just start off with the screenshot there. See that? Down there? Yeah - that. This mod actually detects script users!? How cool is that?! Okay, so some of the other features. There\'s a new delay kick that will actually delay kicking a lamer from the server to show them the message for why they are being kicked. !!! There\'s a protection cvar, honor code enforcement, and freeze tag - not sure what that is cause I didn\'t test this extensively. But the most important things in this mod have to be the ability to unlock the forced turn in yellow dfa\'s! AAHHH! Cause, yeah, I hate JA\'s ydfa. And now you can stand on someone\'s head without slipping off!!! Okay, so that\'s not the greatest feature - but I like it! :D Y\'know, there\'s just too much stuff here to list. It\'s all in the readme and if you don\'t want to read that right now, go find a server with Xmod and try it out yourself! I\'m actually considering switching mods now. Hmm. Great work, guys! :) ~AmosMagee




SP Red Saber | 5.75 KB

easy to download, and you can finally be a sith of pure evil. Who wouldn't want that? I haven't tried it with the double lightsaber because I'm not gonna trudge all the way through the game again - however the readme says it works fine, so I'll just have to trust him ;) Ian Flynn - I believe in you. :) ~Szico VII~




Walking Animations | 50.2 KB

The single animations were not changed for technical reasons, but it's not so bad, because I looked in Jedi Outcast and I can safely say that the single animations in both games are now the same! Well, except for the idle stance in Jedi Outcast, which I loved. But, this is a good animation pack, and it will work with JA+. So, if you have the previous version of this, then download this version. :) Oh, and the melee stance has been changed as well. :) ~Zach




All Enemies Are Sith

all_enemies_are_sith.rar | 14.2 MB

with sith characters. Using the added on skins and models, this mod also replaces some of the other characters. Tavion, for instance, is now Palpatine. Other are replaced as well. I didn't take the time to test this fully, but it looks very fun, and a bit more challenging than usual. Try protecting rosh from two sith that should be howlers. :p If you like SP mods, or if you want something more challenging, give this a download. ~Zach




Realistic Dead Bodies | 1.13 KB

don\'t disappear as they normally do. So if you feel the need to have a big pile of dead Jawas sitting around for all eternity, this is the mod for you. This mod changes more than just the corpse removal time, however -- it edits your autoexec.cfg and adds in some other goodies, like dismemberment probabilities and knockback, and it automatically turns cheats on (so it can perform these commands, obviously) so keep this in mind if you plan to use it. ~Inyri




EP III Stances | 8.24 MB

that I can say, so I'll let the screenshots speak for themselves ;) Sorry for the bad screens, I had to learn to change the camera angle, then I took the screens on a dinky test map (others took to long to load). But hopefully you get the idea :p ~ Red Rebel




Backhand Normal Stance HQ | 8.31 MB

Though there isn't really much room for variation on the simple back-handed stance, there are a few cool features that set this mod out from the crowd. First of all, the stance is a pretty dramatic pose, a bit more animated looking than the previous ones I have seen. But the really cool part is that you stand there, you can see your characters head and shoulders bob up and down slightly making it look like they are panting heavily, perhaps after battling some Sith Lord. ;) This is a really nice little feature I think, as it makes your player character look much more alive and dynamic. All in all a cool mod here, though it only works with the single saber of course. Personally I would like to see a version which also adjusts the dual and staff saber stances, adding that 'panting' movement effect in there too. If you like the look of this mod, then be sure to give it a download, especially if you are looking for a stance mod to compliment your other Force Unleashed mod's! ~Nozyspy~




Dagger of Time + Prince of Persia T2T HUD | 4.46 MB

already know by now. :P And yes, this dagger is indeed very glowy! Another fine mod from AshuraDX, both the modelling and skinning is excellent here. Although I must say the glow is a little strong to be honest and that rather obscures the nice texture detailing that is to be found on the blade itself. Glowy things are always nice though, so that isn't so much of a problem. ;) Also included in the .zip file is a wallpaper for use on your desktop, should you be a fan of the Price of Persia franchise or Ashura's mod's, or maybe both! Another cool feature is that this isn't just a weapon mod, this also includes a HUD mod, which changes the games HUD to something more akin to the one in Price of Persia. I especially liked the way that the little image that denotes saber style changed from a dagger for blue, an axe for yellow and a mace for red style, quite fitting comparisons! All in all this is a very nice mod here, the Dagger of Time is an excellent piece of work in itself with some impressive detailing and after seeing this on the forums as a Work In Progress, I am glad to see it completed and released! The HUD mod is also something pretty unique, I have never seen a HUD like this one in JKA before and this rounds the mod off nicely. Prince of Persia fans rejoice, because I have a feeling you will love this mod! Keep up the good work AshuraDX! [b]New Model:[/b] Yes [b]New Sounds:[/b] No [b]New Effects:[/b] No ~Nozyspy~




KOTOR Stances | 12.01 MB

Republic. Well, first, I'll redirect you to [file="91004"]Nozy's original review of this file[/file], then... well, highlighting what's changed between the two versions is tricky, as the change log wasn't so specific. And then... well, I can't really round off with a summation of the changes, since the changelog didn't specify exactly what had been altered between versions and I can't spare half an hour right now in order to closely examine each and every animation compared to the previous release, sorry. Beat in mind that like all animation mods, you can only have one active at one time, and attempting to have more than one causes the others to simply not work. Richard would probably also throttle me if I didn't slap a big "DON'T TRY TO USE THIS WITH OJP!!!!" sticker across this review, because like any custom animation mod it will bugger up OJP's saber system, so the OJP community have been warned as well. ~ Kouen




The Force Unleashed Animations SP | 11.73 MB

Unleashed is in a way the spiritual successor of the Jedi Knight series. Therefore I suppose it isn’t surprising that we get a steady stream of The Force Unleashed themed mods here at JKFiles. This latest mod gives JKA a TFU flavour by adding in TFU inspired animations for several things, including death, roll and lightsaber animations (though there only appears to be one lightsaber style from what I could see). It also adds a TFU style HUD in the top left of the screen as well as new menu and map loading images. Not only that but there seems to be a few new sounds and even new saber clash effects (which look much better than the Base JKA ones I think). The lightsaber style animations look pretty good, and I like the addition of the new splash images, menu and loading screens along with the HUD. There are a couple of things that could do with improving though, one being the new splash, menu and loading screens, which look quite pixelated, I would definitely suggest trying to find some higher resolution images for these. The other thing is the roll animation, which is now a kind of force dash; the characters pose looks a little awkward and the length of the dash is not very far, if possible I think it should be lengthened a little and the characters pose worked on some more, but that’s just my opinion! Overall however, a nice compact mod with several TFU inspired animations and other features that I think is worth a download for fans of The Force Unleashed series! Give it a download if you like the look of it! ;) ~Nozyspy~




Ep3 like blades | 68.78 KB

been rounded out. It\'s been said in many reviews, and I\'m going to say it again. The saber blades in the movies are never consistent. They\'re always changing. I know! Why don\'t we make a mod that will cycle through all the different kinds of saber tips! Brilliant! Unfortunately, I don\'t think that\'s possible without any coding. Oh well. It\'s an idea. ~Zach




Better Saber Clash Effect | 30.25 KB

maybe if there was a mod which had all different kinds of saber clash effects that would be cool…unless there is already. :S Anyways, I couldn’t see much difference with this mod, to be honest the saber clash effects go so quickly after you have actually clashed the sabers, that I couldn’t tell the difference. I took tons of screen shots to try and see, but I could never get one at just the right time to see the sabers clash. :( From the picture of the flare in the .pk3 though, this does look pretty cool, so if you fancy having a change from the normal saber clash effect, why not give this a download? ;) ~Nozyspy~




Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith Lightsaber Blades | 356.29 KB

RotS when I was watching it. The author states that this style grew on him after seeing RotS several times, and that in addition to modifying the core he brightened the color (and changed blue completey) and increased the resolution of the saber glow so it\'s more smooth. Yeah, I bet you smelled a gripe coming. All good mods have gripes. This mod is good enough, but I just don\'t like the glow. It seems to me like the author slightened the cores, pointed them, but left the big fat glow alone, and now it just seems too big. I\'d like this mod a lot better if the author went back and resized the glows to match the new blades, however that\'s my personal preference so you\'ll have to decide what you think for yourself. ~Inyri




Escape: Yavin IV | 109.39 MB

models, new cutscenes, animations, etc. All of this is new and it's all done quite well. It was a bit of a challenge for me and I didn't even come close to finishing it (mostly because of a time restraint). If you've been bored with the SP game from Jedi Academy, you might want to check out Escape: Yavin IV. The only things I was disappointed in are significant, but don't make or break this game. The size, of course, is a factor. It's over 100MB in size, so it's going to take a while to download for quite a few of you. Second complaint would be the voice acting. It was all done by one person. And I'm not quite sure why the Queen's voice had a tinny sound to it. That didn't make any sense. Anyway, try getting more people to help voice act for your levels - there are quite a few out there who are willing. Several guys I know out there who'd be interested. And there are fewer women available, but I'm one of them! :D [/shamelessplug] Aaaaaaanyway, if you can tolerate the download - check this total conversion out! ~AmosMagee Ps. There's a walkthrough included! Okay, totally going to cheat and play this all the way through later. :D




ForceMod III - Return of the Sith - v1.01 Patch | 4.68 MB

bugs and issues that needed to be addressed. Cue the patch for ForceMod III. All of the fixes can be read in the readme, posted below. This is the patch for Windows. ~AmosMagee




Ingame Character and Saber Menu | 10.25 KB

would not have made it under normal circumstances, it has been removed. Apologies to both Awakibiji and Master Ibonek.[/i][/b] Amazingly enough though, it would appear that this version of the in game menus will make up for this grievous error. Why? Well first off, a brief recap on this mod's function: This mod allows you to evoke the player creation menu and saber creation menu while playing single-player. A very nice function, if not slightly cheating. The previous mod only allowed you to switch a new model and a single saber model and color, and you had to activate a separate button to change it. This version, however: - Fixed the saber menu so you can evoke duals and staff - You may now choose the red saber color for your weapon. - The changes are automatically complete upon exiting the menu. This is definitely an improvement, but there are a lot of issues that crop up if you abuse this menu too much. For example, if you change from staff to single, you still have the staff stance in your repertoire of styles. If you change to ANYTHING while possessing dualies, you will still retain the second saber. This can result in you possessing both a staff and a single, which neat as it sounds, makes your animation incredibly buggy, since the games' trying to figure out which set to use...and failing. However, if used properly, this menu is quite the asset. YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO. GET IT OR SIT ON IT. - Averus Retruthan




Escape: Yavin IV - The Lost Maps | 306.41 MB

conversion. Well, saying it\'s a sequel may not be completely accurate. It\'s really something of a replacement - a totally new story, twenty-five new levels, and plenty of new content to choose from. As it\'s very [i]very[/i] long, I tested the first level fully, and will leave the rest to you. However even just from the first level I can tell the quality is way up there. The puzzles are difficult, the levels, even on the easiest setting, are challenging, and the cutscenes are very good. The voice acting could have used a little work, mostly in just the sound quality area (a lot of the voice actors just seemed a smidge too close to their microphones), but the feeling of the characters comes across well enough. The author recommends you remove all custom PK3s from your base folder in order for this mod to work. The main reason behind this seems to be the incredibly high number of NPCs in the mod - if you have extra NPCs in your base folder your extensions will be too long and you won\'t be able to play, so keep that in mind. However the mod comes with enough customization on its own that you probably won\'t feel the need to have extra mods when you play it. I\'m not going to get too detailed on the features of this mod, but I will re-iterate a few things Darrow mentions in his read-me (which I strongly recommend you read). First of all, as I said, it has 25 brand new levels that were not included in the original EY4. Secondly, the interface of the game is new, including a \"chapters\" menu for easy level selection and a new saber menu (you can steal dropped sabers! yay!). It seems like after each level you can customize your sabers based on ones you acquired during the previous missions. So it\'s kind of like an \"unlocking\" system, from what I can gather. The TC also sports three, count \'em [b]three[/b], ending sequences, which is sure to keep you busy trying to get each one. So if you\'re one of those types who loves single-player but whines and moans about how bad the single-player campaign Raven included is, here\'s your chance to try something a little bit more involved. However be warned - you\'re not ridding yourself of Rosh Penin! ~Inyri




Star Wars Movie Duels

install_star_wars_movie_duels_v1.01.exe | 255.64 MB

admitting powerful opposing forces. This mod is dedicated solely for Single Player purposes, built for those waves upon waves of masses who want to jump in on the key critical prequel battles. Yes, that's right, prequel battles only. Rather despairing for those of us who would have wanted to take on the beastly form of Vader that isn't a total pansy boy. However, I digress; ONWARD TO THE BEEF =_=! First off, it's time to point the bony finger at the technical issues. First off, practically in every campaign sequence, there's a bit of a saber issue: If you cycle to one particular blue stance, whose name evades me, it locks up your stance cycle choices, pretty much =_=. This may make it a little difficult to fight in some already difficult fights =_=+ A small issue with the hud seems to be that the right saber indicator's "MD" is backwards, but that's easily ignored. One final bug to mention: Quicksaving is not exactly a good thing to do for immersion purposes. Why? Well, when it loads, the model you're playing as will usually screw up unmercifully. Worst instance being in Dooku's. Trust me =_= Now then, for the actual synopsis and destructive force of this mod. First off, know that this mod is actually presents you with a number of well-scripted and pretty well choreographed battle sequences, complete with clips from the actual movies. The scenes vary in quality and length, depending on what player you play as. That's right, you have the CHOICE to pick between one party over the other. Which character you play will change the scenario to a varying degree. Each scenario contains a bonus mission that you can use to mix things up with >_>! Behold, the options available to you. Each mission has an Easy, Medium, and Hard setting, which you can view how they affect your battle. For the sake of brevity, I will be referring to the campaign sequences broadly, so as not to spoil the fun, and save my wrists =_= [b]Episode I[/b] [i]Outskirts of Tatooine -[/i]This is a decent recreation of the battle between Maul and Qui Gon out in the desert. This one is a little different in the fact that you'll not actually engage your quarry immediately. In both Maul and Qui-Gon's case, you have to go through a varying amount of Tuskens. Qui-gon sadly has to tote a kid along, albeit he's not much of a liability. Personally, I found this battle to be a little lopsided in difficulty =_,= if you don't play fair. For kicks, I decided to fight Qui-gon with Maul on his trademark speeder. Suffice to say, it was quite amusing to watch him perish. Qui-gon actually got the short end of the stick, because he doesn't have many force powers to defend with. Suffice to say, the bonus mission was a rather amusing twist. [b]Episode II[/b] [i]Encounter with Count Dooku -[/i]Probably one of the best in the bunch next to the Battle of the Heroes campaign that will be explained shortly. This battle is a relatively accurate battle recreation of the final Episode II lightsaber battle between Anakin, Obiwan, and Yoda, as they take on the malevolently awesome Christopher know him as Count Dooku =_=. Anyway, the only oddity I noticed was some of the lousy repetitive combat action in the cinematic sequences. Otherwise, it's near gold, in terms of accuracy. You'll not be disappointed, except perhaps in the bonus mission, I suppose. Didn't feel very inspired, but I digress. Allow me to preface by saying that Episode III was sadly the most fleshed out one. This is understandable, seeing as there were more battles, but something tells me more could have been added to the other two (bare minimum being Duel of the Fates.) [b]Episode III[/b] [i]Rescue Over Coruscant -[/i]The classic battle aboard the invisible hand. A well-scripted and effectively used scene. At this point, there wasn't much worth noting other than the hefty length: be prepared for some serious hardship when in combat, no matter what side you're on. The bonus mission is an interesting new spin on what could have occurred aboard the Invisible Hand. You would be wise to take a look. Short as it is, it's still amusing to think about. [i]Engaging General Grievous -[/i] To preface, yes, you will be going up against all four of Grievous's arms =_,= fear them well, or use them well. This battle I found to be rather amusing, particularly in scripting, as there were some interesting little surprises once the battle got underway =_=. Mid-battle cutscene sequences felt a little dry, but fine otherwise. My favorite sequence had to be the final electrostaff combat scene between the two. Nothing more amusing than going staff to staff =_,= unless of course, Grievous feels like taking potshots upon ye. Bonus mission is okay, albeit not great. [i]Battle of Heroes -[/i]Yes, the ones you EP3 fanchildren have been waiting for =_= *sighs* Suffice to say, this one was probably the most epic, both in scripting, mapping, and cinematics. This battle was pretty much the most impressive, and it took massive works. A rather impressive feat that I noted in the second half of the battle, whilst on the sinking lava machinery, there are bits of ash and lava in the air that hiss against your saber. A nice touch =_,= This one I noted had actual very large differing outcomes, depending on what character you fought as. Whilst playing as Obi Wan gave you the canon ending, an Anakin victory had you...well =_= I'll just let you fight for that. Bonus mission added an odd possibility to the mix of who could attack Anakin. I got exhausted and didn't play through it all, so you will have to find out what happens =_,= Done with all that? Well then, try out the CHALLENGE MODE! Yes =_= a ladder-esque combat sequence in which you can choose what character you fight as, and engage in a series of battles versus different characters, some of which you don't normally see fight =_=. Well, this has all been fun and all, but I've finally defeated the bulk of this mod's content =_= not literally, as midway, I decided to enable the convenient "god mode" button to help speed up the process, rather than get slain time and time again. This mod is quite challenging, and will probably give you great pride in defeating everything. I can safely say that the large file size is worth the epic battles you will have =_,=. BANDWIDTH TO ALL, FAR AND WIDE, OR ELSE I WILL REND YOUR SPINE ASUNDER FOR MAKING ME TYPE ALL THIS CRAP IN VAIN =_= - Averus Retruthan




Backhand Lightsabers | 525.9 KB

picked wisely. :p And so, here is a nice little set of lightsabers from HOUOU. Anyone who played the console EPIII video game will instantly recognize this funky backhand fighting style. And this is basically all the mod does, the author made a rather simple (but neat looking) hilt to go with his backhand lightsaber, called sniper. There are three pk3s included, a regular version of his sniper hilt, a backhand version, and a backhand Katarn hilt. There are some major issues with multiplayer, as the game seems to crash when trying it out with all pk3s in your base folder (solo mode worked perfectly fine). The solution would be to pick one, and stick with it, or not use them in MP... After all, I doubt any server would simply allow exploits like that, but if you find one, enjoy. ~Metall Pingwin




Apollyon Stances & Animations | 17.13 KB

Blasphemously idle and irritating to Averus. - Backroll was a typical backflip. Nothing too showy. I had a mod similar to that, but it had side rolls as well, which this one lacked. - Blue stance was the most amusing, because it seems like the player was about to swing wildly whilst screaming: \"OH JESUS DON\'T HURT ME >_




Jaden Female | 831.52 KB

for! It\'s not bad for a first attempt either, it doesn\'t re-skin the entire model but changes bits here and there (most noticeably that top!) The shading isn\'t very realistic and looks like a blending in PSP but still it works and it certainly leaves little to the imagination about what is there. If you play SP through and want a change, here ya go, if you\'re one of those guys who like the models that reveal the female figure somewhat, here ya go, if you want to whine and call it dirty and perverse...DO NOT POST IT HERE. I will have no mercy on anyone who goes too far in the comments, if you really don\'t like it because you disagree with it then do not post...comments are for comments on the skin itself, not what you think of what the skins stands for. K? -WadeV1589-




Darth Maul as Jaden | 1.72 MB

SP again just so I could be Darth Maul. Though, it does have a certain irony to it, Darth Maul as Jaden. Darth Maul ... training to be a Jedi. Darth Maul ... apologizing for offending someone!? HA! One very good thing about this is that you have a few different Maul looks to choose from. So at least there\'s a little variety there. As with other JK2 models that have been dragged along to JA, not everything works the way it should. The mouth does not move with the dialogue and there are some issues with the dual sabers. Bottom line, though, this is a good SP replacement mod, as far as SP replacement mods go. :) ~AmosMagee




JA+ Client Side Plugin v1.3 | 20.12 MB

why should you download it even if you don't need to? The moves are reportedly smoother, there are improved effects for the new moves, forces and attacks, better management of the new JA+ items such as the flamethrower and grapple hook, RGB sabers and much, much more. Anyway, this is a very customizable mod overall and if you're going to be playing on a JA+ server anyway, you should get this client side plug-in for all the other nifty little features. :)[/quote] This version includes all of the above, as well as the new JA+ sabers, holsters and effects. You only [i]need[/i] this, if you're joining a pure server, but it's handy to have if you go to a JA+ server often. -Rink [b]If you want the server side as well as the client side go[/b] [url=;41254]here[/url]




Vengeance of the Sith | 62.76 MB

hold your attention, though the dialogue can get boring at times. The action is there, but you have plenty of help from Kyle and other Jedi along the way. A lot happens in such a short period of time, so the story and the action is always moving. I ran into an issue at one point where two of the enemies I was supposed to kill ... they weren\'t dying ... but they weren\'t fighting either. They just ... stopped. So I just reloaded at the last checkpoint and tried again and it all worked just fine. The only things I would change about this mod are the writing of the dialogue and I would add some voice acting. Also, there were a few grammatical errors in the subtitles, but I can overlook that. :) If you\'re looking for something new to try for single player Jedi Academy, check this out. Like I said, I haven\'t played through to the end yet, but this is staying on my computer until I do. :) ~AmosMagee




Combat Evolution | 5.81 KB

all of the sabers that you now have countless ways to change your saber fighting style. And what mostly was changed had to do with the damage and speed and even the specials/katas that you perform. I\'ll just quote the author on the changes: [quote] ARBITER: desann style kata changed to dual saber spin attack force protect not usable dark rage not usable RETALIATOR: attack speed slightly increased damage slightly decreased CONSUL: damage reduced significantly movement speed increased attack speed increased lunge changed to hilt bash (can knock people down) ADEPT: damage reduced slightly attack speed increased kata changed to dual saber kata PRAETOR: movement speed decreased significantly knockback scale added kata changed to \'hurricane\' attack SENTINEL: movement speed increased significantly attack speed decreased slightly damage decreased slightly yellow dfa changed to dual butterfly attack small knockback scale added ADJUDICTATOR: changed the yellow dfa to not jump so high and move forward a bit more. Break parry bonus added lock bonus decreased significantly DEFENDER: attack speed decreased slightly disarm bonus increased kata move changed to dual saber spin attack FIREBRAND: lock bonus decreased parry bonus decreased movement speed decreased slihgtly attack speed decreased slightly break parry bonus significantly increased lunge attack changed to a powerful stab attack damage increased GUARDIAN: knockack scale added butterfly changed to dual saber butterfly AVENGER: splash radius increased attack speed decreased kata move changed to yellow kata VINDICATOR: damaged reduced significantly attack speed increased significantly kata changed to dual saber kata CHAMPION: damage increased by ALOT movement speed decreased significantly attack speed decreased significantly kata changed to red style kata force absorb not able to be used force grip not able to be used VANQUISHER: transition damage increased damage scale decreased significantly large knockback scale added kata changed to \'huricane\' attack[/quote] This should keep you guys busy for a while. Play with the different combinations for wielding dual sabers. There\'s quite a variety here and while I didn\'t try each saber, I\'m sure the differences in each one are enough to make it feel almost like a new saber system. ~AmosMagee




JKA Saber Hilt Pack (v2.0) | 4.77 MB

for you to choose from. If you played JK2 then most of these sabers here will seem a tad familiar. I'll just give a few words on each saber. I will be listing them in order of the screenshots. Desann: We should all recognize this saber, carried by the most lethal lizard/dragon Dark Jedi thing. Enjoyed by many in JK2 and now available for JKA! Stinger: Can't say I've seen this saber before, but I'm not one to download many sabers to replace the default ones ... so ... yeah. It came with the Desann one, but I'm not sure who credit goes to for it. Seems like a fairly plain saber. *shrug* Strider_Fellowship: No info included on who the author of this saber is. It's a good lookin' hilt and will look better as a sword without the saber glow thing. Luke: This is a saber hilt from a pack by a guy who did none of the saber hilts either. Yeah. I'm thinkin' this is just Luke's saber. Then again, I don't pay much attention to the hilts. Oniwan: Before you even start, I know that looks like a typo, but it's not one by me! HA! That's what whoever made this hilt called it. It's his typo! Decent hilt. Dooku: From the same guy who gave us the Luke and Oniwan hilts, here's the Dooku hilt. Wildly popular, I saw this hilt everywhere in JK2. While it looks like good craftsmanship, I can't stand this hilt. Maybe because it's curved like that, I dunno. Personal preference, I guess. Yoda: The final hilt from the pack that included the last three hilts, this one is called Yoda. Though, I think it looks a tad too big for Yoda. Very plain hilt. Nazgul: And now onto the Lord of the Rings (LOTR) hilts. This first one looks like the kind of sword the Black Riders would carry. Dark in color, sharp at the points. Looks like it could inflict pain on someone no matter which end you swung with. Morgul: A dark city in Mordor, Morgul (actually Minas Morgul) had this hilt made with its namesake and I think it fits its name nicely. Small and unassuming. Glamdring: Ah, Gandalf's sword. It's large and regal and it just really has a presence about it. Nice lookin' hilt. Sting: This helpful little sword was given to Frodo by Bilbo. I do like this LOTR hilt. It has more personality and character than the other hilts I've seen so far. Strider: Strider's sword is big and shiny and quite masculine. Mmm ... Strider. Oh, right, back to the hilt. This is a nice hilt, and seems to be consistant with the other LOTR sabers. Ranger: I'm assuming this sword is fashioned after one that Strider/Aragorn carried, or belonging to one of his kin. It's a great looking hilt and is well worth the download just for this one, I think. Ring_Wraith: Another great LOTR hilt, made with the Ring Wraith in mind. The detail on this sword is lovely, but would be lost in gameplay. Morgul_Sword: Again we see another hilt with Morgul in mind, and its style is very much the same as the first one we looked at. Not much more to say about it. Black Widow: Oops. I kinda cut off part of the hilt there at the front. Well, trust me, this is a great looking hilt. One I may consider keeping myself. It's very evil looking. Yun: Some may prefer the simpler saber hilts and for those, I suggest Yun. It's a nice hilt, decent size, not too big or small, all chrome. It has a solid look about it - if that makes sense. Fierce Deity: And finally, the sword that was included with the Link model. This thing is huge. I mean, seriously. Use this sword and people will question what you're compensating for. No one needs a sword that big! And there you have it. One download ... 18 saber hilts. Is it worth the download? Sure, if you like variety. I would take too long deciding which hilt to use, so I'll stick to the base hilts. [/quote] So what can you expect in version 2? Some typo fixes, more hilts, and all hilts are now in one pk3. WOOHOO! *ahem* Okay then ... here are descriptions and screenshots of the new hilts: Ultimate: Frankly, I can't see why this hilt was named "Ultimate". The word implies something grand and perfect and for some reason, to me, big. It's a thin, small hilt and I do like it, though it's a bit plain. SaeseeTiin: I have no idea what the name of this hilt means, but it's a decent design. Nothing all that unusual about it, but it has a balanced look to it. Kenobi: A lovely saber that's just the right size for anyone. Very simple in its design. Silverbone: This hilt's appeal, for me, is in its clean lines, and smooth silver surface. It's a good size and has buttons. I like buttons. 3dberkoll: I remember seeing this saber and liking it. I'm unsure if it's what it appears to be - glass. I like the design and the concept of a glass hilt. 3dberko: This hilt has a shader on it that makes it seem to glow red from the inside. Love the idea of this hilt. Caladien: For those who believe size matters ... the Caladien hilt. Personally, I just don't like this saber - too big and unwieldy. It's a good looking hilt - just too much for me to handle. Guardian: Darn it. I cut off part of this one in the screenshot. Well, take my word for it, this is a nice looking, average-sized hilt. Love the silver and black. Diago: Grrr. Ran outta room for this hilt too. It's a great looking polished black metal hilt that keeps its design very simple and sleek. With 9 more hilts to choose from in this pack, why would you ever download the old pack? ;) Get this update for more hilts and a few bugs fixed (I think). Good work! ~AmosMagee




Singleplayer Yoda 1.0 | 2.51 MB

know my opinion - I\'ve always felt that they are pointless and a waste of space. That said, a woman has a right to change her mind. ;) Replacement mods for JK2 were often just Kyle being replaced by the model or skin du jour. They became boring to play and review. Now I know that replacing the main character with Yoda has been done before, but for JA, it\'s just so much more entertaining. I love the first glimpse of Yoda on the ship ... you see Rosh sitting there as the camera pans over to Yoda, and then all you see is an empty seat and just a small shot of his ears. LOL Love that! Anyway, Yoda is the proper size and though everything doesn\'t all line up, I can forgive that just because it was fun playing with Yoda in this. :) What I like best about this SP mod is what\'s promised for the next version. All of Jaden\'s sounds will be replaced with Yoda\'s sounds and Yoda will even have a custom made ship (read the readme for more info). If only there were a Yoda impersonator who could do the voice-over for the cut scenes (if that\'s even possible). That would really complete this mod. :) I have a feeling that SP replacement mods are going to be much better for JA than they were for JK2 and I\'m actually looking forward to playing some now. :) ~AmosMagee




Force Unleashed SP | 9.59 MB

hilt model by HOUOU. There isn't much differance between basejka and this, however there are some things that are worth mentioning. First of all, author forgot to write in the readme that to be actually able to use "/saber" command you need to enable cheats first. After that, you can type "/saber sniper_bh" to get a backhand lightsaber with Starkiller's stance. The animations changed are stance, push, drain, lightning and grip as it would seem. Also I've noticed that grip was renamed into "Telekinesis" which isn't quite accurate (Because in Force Unleashed it's still called grip). The only bug that I could notice was that when you stand on a ledge, the animations go all crazy and weird so avoid those areas. As a nice finish I'd like to say that if you're a Starkiller fan and need a proper stance and saber mod that will get your JK3 a bit closer to the modern "Force Unleashed" game, you totally need to submit bandwidth for this file :) -Schrödinger




Prince of Persia Warrior Within Stance

wwstance.rar | 7.88 MB

his stance modification which replaces the dual saber stance with the one from Prince of Persia - Warrior Within. I honestly do not know what the stance from WW looks like, so I just have to go with his word on this one. There isn't much more to say. If you are a fan of PoP or simply like the look of the stance, download. If not, pass up. Dommie Kun




CloneCody SP | 2.61 MB

there is one problem with it. The author left the original sounds.cfg file in it but didn\'t include the actual sounds, so if you don\'t have the original model you\'re going to hear stunning silence when using this guy in-game. However I think most of the people who would download this probably already have the original, so it may not be much of a problem.[/quote]The sound issue has been corrected so you won\'t be the amazing silent clone anymore. However the shader issue has not been corrected, so the visor still won\'t work. However the sound fix definitely make this mod better, so if you downloaded the original make sure you download this one now to fix that bug! ~Inyri

Dark Forces Mod (Demo 2) | 194.51 MB

Forces was the first game in the Jedi Knight Series (Dark Forces, Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight, Jedi Knight, Jedi Knight II e.t.c), and it came out way way back when I got my first PC. In fact, the original game was probably the first FPS I ever played and in that respect I think I know the game pretty well :) This file is basically a remake of that game for Jedi Academy. What the team for this mod has done is taken the old game and completely transferred it onto JKA, new textures, new sounds, better all around you could say. There are three demo levels in this mod, all of them fairly large, but you have to play them in order, starting with the good old imperial base. I spawned in a small lift and the grate opens into a narrow corridor, exactly as I remembered it from the original game. Here comes my biggest and worst point about the entire first two levels of the demo. FPS. It's absolutely awful, and running around this level is absolutely horrifying. It doesn't go too low, i.e below 10, but in the cavern area it never goes above 20 either. If a little more attention to VIS had been used, and techniques such as area-portaling, some indoor areas could have been vastly improved. The same applies to the second city level. Whilst it looks fantastic, and the weather effects are stunning, the map may be verging on 'unplayable' for those with lower spec PC's. However, this is THE worst thing about the mod, because pretty much everything else is great :D (As you'd expect from three years work) After stealing the plans from the imperial base in level 1, you're treated to some remakes of the original cut-scenes which are very nice indeed. The downside is that the character's mouths don't move which looks a little silly, but the whole effect is simply jaw-dropping. This leads you onto Level 2. (My favourite) Set on a planet called Talay, a city-typed area called Tak-Base has come under fire from the imperial forces and their new 'secret' weapon (A.K.A Dark Trooper.) Spawning into this level and I was instantly greeted with some intense weather effects and some brilliant ambient noise. Then I was off through the city, trying to find the power generator. It was a pain at first as its so darn easy to get lost, but when you get there and turn all the lights on the city is much brighter and well, you get the idea. Onto the musical aspects. Each level comes with the same music it had in the original game, except remade so it isn't so midi-like. Whilst this is accurate to the game, they're not that amazing to listen to anymore, and the transition between the action music and the stealth music isn't always as smooth as it could have been. My example here would be the title credits you see when you first load a new game. Whilst the music is what it sounded like in the original game, it would have been much better to have put the orchestrated version here because it sounds so much better! There are a few new enemies to kick around, like the sewer monsters in level 3, but the animations need tweaking slightly to make them more lifelike. As they stand, they look like cardboard cut-outs when they die ;) The weapons here are also from the original game, but the two you'll use the most in this demo are pretty much the same as the JKA versions. (The Bryar pistol and the E11) You also get thermal detonators, but I was disappointed there were none of the cooler weapons available to test out. All health and ammo pickups have been altered to resemble those from the original game, as has the HUD. The startup menus have also been changed, now being more green and saying "Dark Forces" instead of Jedi Academy. But for the final, please get rid of the annoying button-click sounds, they are far too loud and repetitive! What else? I'm not going to go into describing the depth and detail of the levels because it would take far too long. Just have a look at the screenshots and then test it yourself to from your own opinion. :) Oh yes, the enemy AI. I don't know whether it's the default JKA which I'm criticising here, but sometimes I could be stood behind an enemy, or sometimes even in front of them and they wouldn't notice I was there, whilst other came after me from halfway around the level (Stupid interrogator droids ;) ) My favourite level was Talay because I love cityscapes, but the best to play was Anoat Sewers because the framerate there was vastly improved. I'm sure there's plenty more I've forgotten to mention, such as the cool cutscenes and briefing screens, but If you download the mod you can see for yourself! I believe with some fiddling this demo will also work on a MAC. Check the developer's website for more info. ~Szico VII~




FlufMod 0.9.5 Beta | 73.32 MB

variety of custom player models and skins for [i]both[/i] multiplayer and singleplayer! First of all, lets have a look at the changes to the singleplayer side of the game. [b]Singleplayer[/b] First off it is worth noting that this mod adds a huge number of excellent custom player models and skins made by a variety of authors, for you to choose from when you start a new game. Not only that but there are also customization menu options for many of these, allowing you to refine you character even further. If you want to play as a Shadowtrooper with blue, red and black armour, then you can! ;) If you want more detailed information, then be sure to check out the readme. There is also a cool little robe toggle thing, which allows you to put on or take off your outer robes on the fly, should you decide that you would rather use your robe with the hood up for a bit of sneaking around, or maybe take it off completely when battling a bunch of Cultists. This feature is available for both SP and MP. Next up we have a revamped force points system and some adjusted force powers. The author has included two very detailed though rather long, readme\'s which outline the many changes, so rather than trying to describe them myself, I may as well let the author do it: [quote] ================================= - SinglePlayer Force Point System ================================= At the moment it is quite a HACK, but it works, and that\'s the point. Through the use of the menu system and external CVARS, I created a \"different\" (far be it for me to claim \"better\") system for the distribution of forcepoints. -Force Sense I find that the Force Sense ability is supposedly innate to what a Jedi is. \"Seeing things before they happen giving them god-like reflexes\". If it were up to me, i would code in force Sense as being the most powerful ability, instead of a simple \"item and secret finder\" that the single player game makes it, or the \"bypass mindtrick\" ability that multiplayer makes it. Thus, I have taken it out of the equation somewhat, due to my current lack of modifying ability for the Single Player Game. It is still incrementable like all other abilities, but it starts the game at level 2. -Saber Throw I don\'t like saber throw. It\'s cheap, and impracticle. (Obi Wan: \"This weapon is your life!\") The jedi should never knowingly chuck their saber around the room. Our lightsaber is all we got. (I prefer to try to play and beat the Jedi Knight games without ever using any other weapons, however the placement of disrupter rifle snipers often forces me to play sniper wars *grr*). Anyway, Darth Vader(EP6) & Yoda(EP3) are the only Jedi to have been witnessed throwing their saber, and it wasn\'t with any real \"boomerang\" control, it was simply an agressive attack against Luke and a Clone Trooper. Thus, I revamped how Saber Throw is given in the game. With the default SaberPack all sabers are generically the same: all with default values. The MOD alters this play to give each saber specific combat capabilities and limitations, some of which include the inability to throw the saber. Kicks are available to those sabers that aren\'t throwable. However, since some sabers are throwable and others are not, Saber throw starts the game at 0, and it is up to you to increase it wisely. -Initial Forces: Pull: 1 //Because of the ID-10-T error, some maps require you //to be able to Pull/push objects. Also, it should be //innate for a Jedi to be able to \"pull\" items //(ie saber) to them. Sense: 2 Saber Offense: 1 Saber Defense; 1 -Tier 1: Game Start: 6 pts Missions: 1 pt (2 if All Secrets found) Total Points: 10 to 12 Possible Pts -Tier 2: First Mission: 3 pts (5 if Saber Favorite Weapon) Missions: 1 pt (2 if All Secrets found) Total Points: 7 to 12 Possible Pts -Tier 3: First Mission: 3 pts (5 if All Secrets found) Missions: 1 pts (2 if All Secrets found) Total Points: 7 to 13 Possible Pts Total Points In Game: 24 to 37 Possible Pts As you can see I did a little tweaking with the per mission point system. If you find all of the secrets on a mission (eg: Post-mission menu shows \"Secrets Found: # of #\") then, the next mission you recieve extra force points for spending. This is remaniscent of DFII:JK. However it isn\'t perfect, as some missions have secrets, but do not actually consider them as Secrets in the \"post-mission debrief\". So, basically if after the mission it displays a \"Secrets Found\" entry, and you have found ALL of the secrets for that level, you will recieve the extra point. [/quote] Next up we have some heavy modding to the saber combat system. This is where it gets even more in depth; from what I can tell you are able to choose from a variety of saber hilts, each with unique abilities and styles associated with them. For more information, be sure to read the FlufMod_Saber_Info.txt which contains a lengthy and very detailed explanation of the attributes and damages associated with each saber. [quote] =========================== - SinglePlayer Saber System =========================== -Select any Hilt, Any Style at start of game. Sabers: Dual, Staff, Single Stances: Medium, Strong, Fast, Tavion, Desann Colors: Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, Purple, Red. Hilts: (See: FlufMod_Saber_Info.txt) -New Style selection system based on increasing Saber Offense If you increase your Saber Offense you will recieve the option to add an additional style of your choice. This happens at the Weapon Selection Screen. If you choose not to add a style at this moment, select NONE and you will recieve no bonus style. After Hoth and Vjun you still recieve the default new style as per the game, however at this point you can as well select NONE and choose to retain only the styles you currently posess. This acts now to make SaberOffense a tad bit more important, not just style-wise, but also as your attack base. You can have only one style, but a level 3 saber offense, so you are really powerful offensively, even though you only use one style of saber combat. Finally, this does not affect the MOD oriented hilt limitations. You still retain ALL styles you gain in the game, even if a specific HILT does not allow you to use it, so be careful about which saber hilt you pick and what styles you pick for it. Especially after VJun, where you can \"build\" a new saber hilt, so this may or may not affect styles learned throughout the course of the game. Also, after the VJun mission, where you str able to select a new saber hilt, this has been altered to prevent changing saber types. You must stick with whatever type of saber you began the game with. I personally like this better, because as the game progresses, you are \"practicing\" saber techniques with one type of saber. \"Obi-Wan: If only you\'d spend as much time practicing your saber techniques as you do flying, and you\'d rival Master Yoda as a swordsman.\" Hence, you don\'t really alternate between the saber types, you focus on ONE type and get really good at it. With this as well, I believe wholeheartedly in the role-play aspects, and thus if you increase your SaberOffense with one type of saber, you should have to start from Level 1 again for a different type of saber combat. Which, since I could not code this effect with the limited resources available for Single Player mods, I simply eliminitated the option.[/quote] As the author states in his readme, and as you can see from the amount of time and detail he has put into this mod, he is attempting to add some more RPG and choice related aspects to JKA, which while it allows you more freedom in gameplay than JK2, is still pretty linear gameplay wise. I would really like to go into this mod in more depth, but the very fact of its complexity makes it difficult to test for a review since we generally don’t have that much time, especially for huge mods like this. For the full effect, I would definitely recommend downloading this and starting a new game! Now, that’s the major points of the singleplayer side of the mod dealt with, so what about the multiplayer aspects? [b]Multiplayer[/b] AS in singleplayer, there have been some significant changes to the saber system, as outlined below: [quote] ================================= - Saber Style Selection... ================================= Yes, I think it is rather pointless, and annoying, for Raven to have coded in 7 total saber styles, and yet you can only use at best 3 at a time. Sabering is more than just 3 distinct methods, hell its more than the mere 7 animations they\'ve included, and since I\'m not a modeller we\'ll just have to make do. Instead, I basically opened up all the styles, Tavion, Fast, Medium, Strong, Desann, Dual, and Staff, as a point based system using your Saber Offense Level. Level 1 - 1 Point Level 2 - 3 Points Level 3 - 5 Points This works out, because Dual and Staff cost 3 points as opposed to all other styles 1 point. In addition to the Saber file scripts, you can configure the sabers to bonus you with styles or limit others. Like Anakin\'s EP2 saber, is normal, but his EP3 saber and Darth Vader\'s saber both have Desann learned, so you don\'t have to buy it. On the server side, you can effect styles available with a server CVAR, listed below. As well, Bot JKB files can use the same method of saber style flags in their force power string. Using the same bit flag addition values as you would for the g_SaberStyleDisable CVAR listed below (but only for the Styles not the disable flags) you would append that value to the bot\'s personality\'s forcepower string as follows: Example: 7-1-222222202020003333-104 The -104 gives the bot the use of Tavion, Strong, and Dual styles, I think. Not too good on the whole AI section of the source code, but they all use the same parsing engine as it does for the player, so for now I believe it works, and I\'ll keep testing for later revisions.[/quote] To be honest, I really have to agree with the author here, considering that Raven used different saber styles and attacks for Tavion and Desann its quite annoying that they only included 3 styles for the single saber and 1 for the dual and staff sabers each. Its a shame that we have to resort to modding to include extra styles like Tavion\'s and Desann\'s, when I think Raven should have included these and maybe more styles to begin with so that we would have more variety in gameplay. Along with this there have been many changes to the way force powers work, from the use of force points and force regen times, to adjustments of the various force powers, such as having to hold down the force speed (now called force dash) button in order to continue using it, which makes sense, as like the author says in his readme, Jedi don’t just \'turn it on and off\'. There have also been some adjustments to saber throw, meaning the saber now flies in a strait line, a la Yoda in Episode III, and you now have to go and pick your saber up afterwards, as it no longer returns automatically to your hand. There are many more adjustments which are explained in greater detail in the readme, which I wont paste in here since those alone are about three pages long! For more info be sure to read the readme! So what does the author have planned for future versions of this mod? [quote] ================================= - Future Plans ================================= First let me note that help is ALWAYS appreciated, especially from the fine folks at the forums and elsewhere on the \'Net who help point out certain things and help me seek the location for things as well as offering advice, pointers, and general answering of foolish questions modders like me sometimes need. So anyway, in the end, this section is just a list of things I would \"like\" to do in the future, but can\'t because I suck. - Update Saber Deflections of standard Blaster attacks. I\'d like to change it so that it would deflect some on its own, but if you actively hold a key to \"contribute\" extra attention, your deflection rate skyrockets. Very rarely did you see powerful Jedi affected by blasters, especially when they were concentrating on deflecting the missles. I\'d like to add the Concentration. - Update a \"Sense\" radar. I dunno how exactly I\'d do this but I\'d like to make some sort of radar that would indicate hostile intention in a specific direction, for those rare moments when that 2D screen is just to limiting on the peripheral vision it would be nice to have the force work for us, point out where that last shot came (or is coming) from. [/quote] Personally I think both of these ideas are excellent. The idea for the saber deflection modifications reminds me of the Star Wars Episode I Game, where you actually had to use the attack button to deflect blaster bolts, which I have to say was much more satisfying than just having it done for you! I also like the \'sense radar\' idea, this would be very useful in FFA\'s and it could also be quite useful on singleplayer, when you see the beam of a disruptor rifle graze your shields and want to know where the shot came from. All in all a [i]very[/i] in depth and complex mod here. This wont appeal to everyone of course, but I am sure some people will absolutely love it! Just a note to the author for next time around though, I think it would be a good idea to include a simplified readme with a briefer outline of the features to make it easier for newbies to get started with the mod and also for the benefit of us reviewers to be able to quickly see what the mod features without having to do a lot of reading or hours of play-testing. ;) Keep up the good work JaedenRuiner, your modding skills are impressive, most impressive! ;) ~Nozyspy~




Lightsaber in-game customizer | 1.48 MB

here took some code from the Open Jedi Project and added the ability to use RGB sabers for base JA. I cannot guarantee any mod compatibility, but you're certainly welcome to try at your own expense. Anyway, there are instructions included to help you adjust your blade type, so I suggest taking a peek in there when you have the time. All in all, a nice and somewhat practical mod. Worth a look, methinks. - Averus Retruthan




New Black Saber (JA+) | 126.92 KB

the good ol\' days... Give this a download if you\'re looking for a black saber that looks more like a saber rather than a stick of black death. ~Inyri




Dual Lightstaff Mod | 87.92 KB

Something ... in my opinion ... that is a bit too powerful and duels just end way too quickly. RED SITH has combined dual lightsabers and the saber staff and created dual lightstaffs. It\'s almost impossible for anyone to penetrate the two staffs, so you almost never get hit. And the damage that the sabers cause is just huge. Also, the author reskinned the staff saber you use for this mod. My screenshot doesn\'t really do it justice. You\'ll have to just see it in-game. So if you\'ve always wanted dual saber staffs, now you have \'em. It\'s just a pk3 you drop into your base folder, but they\'ll need to be uploaded to a server for you to use them anyone other than your own machine. Y\'know? So ... yeah. ~AmosMagee




Age of Terror-Mod V1 | 22.48 MB

so they are supposed to be stronger,and resist more damage. I've also included some new sabers(only reskins,but they have better abillities); The sabers are: Survivor, Ripper, Ripper V.2 and Shadow. (single) (dual) (single) (dual) The weapons are changed too; The Repeater now fires missiles, The Blaster Pistol, E-11,Bowcaster and Flechette shoots alot faster, The Concussion effects are more green, The Merr-Sonn is golden and it's missiles are flamming, The Thermals, Tripmines and DetPacks are darker.(Only Tripmine have NO new effects!) Oh,I almost forgot;The demp is now an E-11! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------[/quote] I don't like to quote the author much but sometimes I have to, because otherwise I would be sitting at my computer FOREVER typing up all the small things that have been done in this mod. I'll give you an overview, however. - Most characters now dress darker, implying a theme of darkness - Makes NPCs stronger - Contains new sabers - Several weapons and their effects have been switched out - Changes load screens to a Halloween color scheme It is indeed pretty well done for a mod, not just a couple of reskins, but new weapons and effects also. The author has achieved what he set out to do in the first place, and this mod serves its purpose. Keep in mind that it is only for Singeplayer. Let me repeat, it does NOT work in multiplayer. Except for the sabers. They work in Multiplayer. Enjoy. ~Authuran




AdZ's Force Mod | 8.63 MB

fresh look to the effects shown when using the force powers, but includes a whole new set of icons for each power which look far better than the default, and far better than the v1 icons. So i'll start with saying that the icons are great, and for them alone, I would keep this mod. Now moving onto the effects themselves: [b]Lightning:[/b] There are not only new effects for the lightning power, but he has also included new sounds. The sound is nice, however i'm not sure if I would say it is better, certainly different though, and quite nice for a change. The lightning effect itself looks great though, and definately and improvement that I liked. [b]Mind Trick:[/b] Basically this power consists of small pink/purple dots flashing above a players head, i'm not sure why a purple colour was chosen, but it does look good, so cant complain about that! [b]Protect:[/b] Ok, the protect effect doesn't seem much different, it basically seems like a thinner and more transparent version of the default, but it also doesnt move around the skin like before, its more of a static effect. I never did like the default, and this new effect is a much more subtle and nicer effect.. much easier on the eyes for an old sod like me. [b]Drain:[/b] Now, for my favourite addition... the drain effect. This new effect is completely unlike the default, its more of a haze of red energy been pulled from the other player, rather than a lightning effect. I absolutely love this new effect, however I would prefer if it was slightly smaller, it covers a large amount of your aim, which might get difficult in the midst of combat, other than that its fantastic. As an addition to the new effects, the grip animation from the V1 version has still been included, but the animation itself has been made to go faster, and as an added bonus to the pack, he has also included a new flame burst / flame thrower sound. All in all, a fantastic force modification here, great work AdZ.. I hope you make a V3, i'll be keeping my eyes open for it, and for any other file you release! I COMMAND THEE ALL TO DOWNLOAD OR I SHALL STEAL YOUR SOULS AND PURGE YOU INTO THE UNDERWORLD... nah not really.. but seriously.. download this... *evil glare* - AmonRa




Throwable Saber Staffs | 2.16 KB

small mod enables saber throw on saber staffs in single player mode. Quite deadly, as the author said, and I found it quite fun to play with. In addition, enemies will also pick up this ability, so be ready for some more action! ~Dretzel




Kick Sabers | 2.25 KB

appears to work quite well. [b]NOTE, HOWEVER[/b] that this is Single Player only. If one were to install this mod and use it in MP, thou wouldst be stripped of BOTH kick AND throw! Truly, a warning for any who would dare test the modder's mettle, for you will gain nothing but lose everything =_=. which point you just remove the--- SOUL FROM YOUR BODY AND OFFER IT UNTO ME. =_=; Yes, no one must never know the loophole...

JK3 Multiplayer Dismemberment | 1.08 KB

difficult :) So, you know in the single player, when you can slice off people\'s arms and legs e.t.c? Well after doing this you\'ll be able to do it in multiplayer too :) Bear in mind if u use a mod like JA+ you may have to alter the seperate config files for these mods as well as the basic one. ~Szico VII~




New Lightning Effects | 48.22 KB

and brighter. The color has been tweaked just a bit, and it seems a little different when it hits someone. Not sure how it changed though ... since I rarely use lightning. But if you\'re looking for a change for your lightning, grab this ... you might like it. :) ~AmosMagee




BGMod (Better Graphics for JKA) | 329.44 MB

claim, as I think they\'ve simply got a higher contrast which makes everything look bumpy and, dare I say, somewhat unrealistic. I guess one positive side effect is that since the textures are all smaller, the game will run better with a lower-quality machine. But then again I never had problems playing the game on an ancient machine with a GeForce 2 graphics card, which was outdated [i]then[/i], so if you\'re running something worse than that you shouldn\'t use this mod -- you should upgrade your system. This mod also changes a lot of the menus and things, so if that would annoy you (blue --> red menus, etc) then you might want to think twice about this. I didn\'t notice a significant increase in game playability either (my FPS was basically the same as it was normally). Frankly with the read-me stated 1 FPS increase between baseJKA and this mod, I don\'t necessarily think it\'s worth the download time unless you like the look better. ~Inyri




Best Clone NPC Pack v2 | 3.82 KB

This will add a plethora of new NPC files for this model pack, so if you were disappointed that the original didn\'t come with NPCs or want to try out a new NPC pack for it, give this one a shot. Details on what NPCs are included are listed in the read-me file. ~Inyri[/QUOTE] This is the V2 of clone npc pack. If you want to try some more clone like npcs then this pack is for you. A list of all the npcs is included in the readme so give it a look. [i]Ayane Yamazaki[/i]




Dark Side SP | 3.9 MB

have been switched around, such as Alora being Kyle, Luke being Tavion, etc. (To see a full list of character switches, read the readme). Also, some sounds have been changed so that the right characters have the right voices in battle. I happened to notice, however, that while viewing the cutscenes, the voices are the same, which does not quite fit the mod, as Alora spoke with Kyle's voice. :p Other than that, I had fun slaughtering the jedi with this mod. Give it a download if you want a little change to your SP. Heheh... Thank you! *Cough* No more RE4 for me...




Battledroid SP | 13.55 MB

basics, you get a partial tradeoff for your Single Player adventure: imperials for battle droids. Personally I like the trade off, but naturally there are flaws. However, the author mentioned the voice problem, so scot-free for now. army of cyborgs..yes. I think that shall do wonderfully. Oh yes, offer your bandwidth, if not for the change in combat, then for the fact that you\'ll need those machines TO DEFEND AGAINST MY CYBORG ARMY. - Averus Retruthan




Elegance HUD | 138.5 KB

original HUD. Darth NormaN, who you would much more readily expect to see a map from, seems to be expanding his horizons. This very tiny, interesting, and futuristic HUD should be great for people who find the default HUD clunky and find that it obstructs their view of the playing field. Definitely worth looking into! ~Inyri




Clone Wars Saber Sounds V2 | 1.8 MB

(maybe i just need to go get my hearing tested), but there are various differences between them. Download them, take a peak..err.. a listen, and see what ya think. Not much more to write.. I could try to make the sounds for you.. **weeeeessshhh\".. but doesnt have the same effect i think. -Lizardking




JediStyle Mod | 11.62 KB

core _humanoid animation set via modifying the animation.cfg file, effectively making the model perform a different motion when an action is done. According to the ReadMe, these changes are: *Walk animation for Dual sabers *Walk animation for the Staff *Run animation for dual sabers *Run animation for the Staff *Force Jump animation *Blue stance for single saber(animated) *Red stance for single saber(animated) *Dual sabers stance *Stand idle animation *Dual sabers victory taunt (gloat) *Red stance victory taunt (gloat) Now I know the concept of rearranging the animation.cfg to make different animations isn\'t very new, but overall, I think the new animations look quite good. Some look a little weird in some cases (Like when you stop running on single red stance), but I think this is file is still worth a download. :) -TiM




New Death and Pain Animations

death_animations_mod.rar | 11.55 KB

a little different. That is where this mod comes in! This mod subtly changes various animations, such as the grip, pain and death animations. My particular favourite was the back flip death animation, watching stormtroopers back flip is always amusing. ;) I also liked the dodge type of animation what happens when an enemy is shot, it does indeed look like the enemy is trying to either dodge the blaster bolt you have just fired at them, or is reeling in pain after just being shot. You can get a better look at what the animations will look like in the screenshots below, although to actually see them [i]animated[/i] you will of course have to try this mod ingame! So, if you fancy a change from the usual JKA pain and death animations, give this a shot! (Pun intended). ~Nozyspy~




Star Wars Chronicles Duels Pack 1

duels_pack_1.rar | 227.51 MB

Fates' from Episode I and the Duel between Dooku, Anakin, Obi-Wan and finally Yoda from Episode II. For anyone not familiar with the Chronicles Mod you should check out their website, [url=]here[/url]. The first thing you see in any Single Player mod, is of course the menu screens and these are rather clever! Available from the 'Start New Game' option are the two duels, but what is clever is that the button for each duel, when moused over, is actually a small video of the duel itself! Not something that is hugely important to the gameplay, but it’s a nice touch nonetheless! First off, let's have a look at: [b]Duel of the Fates.[/b] This is probably one of the most famous bits of any of the Star Wars films, not least because of that amazing 'hairs on the back of your neck' soundtrack by John Williams. Its also just an incredibly choreographed duel and is always enjoyable to watch. Here we get our chance to play as Obi-Wan and duel Darth Maul ourselves. Believe me, this is not easy, it takes skill and perseverance to complete these duels and I died several times on each. Out of the two though I would definitely say that Duel of the Fates is the most difficult, primarily because old Qui-Gon isn't really very helpful. :P That is one of the few issues I found with this mod; Qui-Gon often just stops behind pillars or sometimes just walks around casually while Darth Maul continues attacking you, which makes things rather more difficult. The cutscenes in both duels are fantastic however. They are on par, if not better than the cutscenes made for JKA by Raven and include characters that move their mouths and are lip synched to the speech and full sound from the movies, which adds a really nice level of realism to everything. The camera angles and character movements are also unbelievably similar to the actual shots the film, which is quite an accomplishment considering the limitations of JKA. The Duel of the Fates map is also very impressive and accurate to the film. Along with the excellent skins this rounded this half of the mod off nicely. It really does feel very cinematic! [b]Geonosis Duel[/b] This is of course the duel that was at the end of Episode 2 featuring Count Dooku, Anakin, Obi-Wan and Yoda. You start out as Obi Wan and fight until the scene where Dooku disarms Obi-Wan and Anakin saves him just in time before Dooku cuts poor Obi in half. You then switch over to controlling Anakin and then when Anakin gets his arm chopped off you finally get to play as Yoda! The cutscenes and character changes occur when you get Dooku's health down to a certain amount. Again the cutscenes are fantastic and contain full music and speech from the film along with lip synching characters. The thing I was impressed with most though is the map. It really does have a Geonosis feel and is the best recreation of the Geonosis duel area that I have ever seen. The sky outside especially looked fantastic; somehow the author of the map has been able to make the skybox sort of 'glowy'. There is a screenshot below where you can see what I mean, it's very difficult to describe since it doesn't look quite the same as the glow from a light. In any case I haven't a clue how it was done, although I would very much like to find out! As for bugs on this half of the mod, I only noticed one. It was however most bizarre... Instead of Padme appearing at the end and running into the hangar as she does in the film, it was actually a Stormtrooper. How this happened I have no idea, I also don't know whether this problem was unique to me, e.g. caused by a file conflict, but in any case the Padme model was replaced by a Stormtrooper. Weird, and a little amusing but nothing too serious! Overall; fantastic work here and well worth a download! Keep up the good work guys, I look forward to seeing Duel Pack 2! :D ~Nozyspy~ And now a message from the Chronicles Team: [quote] Star Wars Chronicles is a Jedi Academy Modification that is being developed by the Chronicles Team since August 17th 2007. The idea is creating singleplayer missions that resembles to the six movies of the saga, something that many dreamt and couldn't do so far. We count with a huge number of members that are working to provide you the best quality and pleasure. MovieBattles Team, responsible for creating the famous MovieBattles II modification is supporting us. In this Duel Pack Series we have planned to give the fans a taste of our work. The demo was about missions, this is how the duels will be in the full version. You will get to be Obi-Wan in Duel of The Fates and duel against Darth Maul with the help of Qui-Gon. All scenes are exactly as the original movies from the camera point of view to character animations as much as the engine allows us. It is of great importance to us that you feel like in the movie. Moreover in the Geonosis Duel, you will fight as 3 different characters including the little green guy, Yoda! The lightning effect of the Sith lord was supported by shaders to make it more realistic during cinematic's. The Duel might be hard for you new starters, but keep trying, Count Dooku is just another tinny. Both missions are beautifully scripted and mapped, you will surely want to play more after this experience. We are planning on a second duel pack that will most probably feature Battle Over Coruscant and Emperor's Throne Duel. So keep your heads up for the next update very soon.[/quote]




Halo Plasma Sword | 11.29 MB

Compatibility Addon 1.3).pk3 to your JKA base folder![/b] Everybody loves Halo, apparently. Unfortunately for me I have never actually played any of the Halo games, except for a brief playthrough of the demo version of the original Halo, so I I am not that knowledgeable on the franchise. I do know when I see a cool weapon mod however, and this one here is definitely under that category! ;) This here is a [url=]Plasma Sword[/url] from the Halo games, how the sword is supposed to work, I don't know, but it looks damn cool. ;) This mod is a much improved version of LukeSkillz previous Halo Plasma Sword mod which was reviewed almost a year or so ago. As you can see from the screenshots, this is nice and glowy. But curiously the glow doesn't come from a dynamic glow shader on the sword itself, but rather from a texture/shader, which mimics the effect of dynamic glow, thus eliminating some of the problems the author was having with this, as explain in the readme. The effect looks really good and I think this was a very impressive feat of ingenuity from the author. There is a sword for every saber colour, so although the original halo Plasma Sword may only come in blue, here you can get them in all of the normal saber colours. There is also a lightning type shader that shimmers over the surface of the blades to give them that extra edge (if you will forgive the pun :P). There is also another small, but clever addition, you will notice that instead of the classic JK Saber logo on the loading screens, it has been replaced with the silhouette of the Halo Plasma Sword instead, which I thought was a nice touch. There are some bugs that still need to be ironed out however, for instance, when swinging the sword, you still get the saber trail behind it in whatever colour your lightsaber usually is, which doesn't really fit with the sword at all. Also, if you use the sword in staff mode, then part of the saber trail will appear frozen infront of the sword when you swing it, which is rather annoying. The saber trail definitely needs to be removed completely with this mod to make the swords look better when used. This is only a relatively minor bug, but it is a bit annoying since it is visually quite obvious. Either that or make a new saber trail to better fit the swords. There are still a couple more neat features I haven't mentioned yet though. One is that the saber icon on the weapon menu at the bottom of the screen has been replaced with an image of a Plasma Sword, although the text still says lightsaber (it would be cool if this could be changed too). Also there are some fantastic new sound effects, electrical crackles and throaty hums which fit perfectly with this mod! It is also great that this can be used with both JK2 and JKA, although be sure to include both .pk3s in your base folder when using this mod for JKA. As I said above: [b]There are two .pk3s included in this .zip, the HaloSword (v3).pk3 is for JK2 only, if you want to use this in JKA, you will need to include BOTH the HaloSword (v3).pk3 and HaloSword(JK Compatibility Addon 1.3).pk3 to your JKA base folder![/b] Overall this is a fantastic weapon mod and a must have for Halo fans! Keep up the good work LukeSkillz! :) [b]New Model:[/b] Yes [b]New Sounds:[/b] Yes [b]New Effects:[/b] No ~Nozyspy~




Better Game Effects | 4.51 MB

we have a mod that changes various game effects, including some of the projectile effects for the weapons, the saber blades, and also some new sounds. First off, it is easy to see that the saber blades have been changed; they now look much more like the ones in Episode 3, longer, thicker and pointier (careful, you might poke someone’s eye out with that thing! ;)). The saber also has loads of new sounds, which sound like they may have come from the original Jedi Knight game. Personally whilst they don’t sound quite like the movie sabers, I do prefer these changes since they sound much more deadly and visceral. The projectile effects for some of the weapons have also been changed. The Bowcaster now fires red bolts as it does in the films, instead of the traditional green that it has been in the Jedi Knight games and the repeater also fires red blaster bolts instead of the small round white bolts it fired before. Personally I prefer the red blaster bolts that the repeater now fires, I think they fit better with the weapon somehow. But that’s just me. There have also been some changes to the force lightning, saber lock and saber deflection effects, though in my limited time testing the mod I wasn’t able to try out all the new effects. One nice feature though was the new splash screen that displays when the game first loads and also when a map loads, I [b]much prefer[/b] this new one to the Base JKA one, it looks great! :D Added to that there is also a new background for the drop down console. All in all this is a cool mod here, and a welcome addition to the library of effects mod’s that we have here on the site. If you guys like the look of the mod from the screenshots below, be sure to give it a download! ~Nozyspy~




Star Wars Stances Animated For JA+ | 9.39 MB

where you can do beta testing, if you like). This version introduces a lot of changes, so I'll just name off what I found most notable. Check the readme for full details. My favorite change with this mod is the new force grip animation. Not only does it give your character a much better position, it also changes the animation of the person you use it on. I think that was the coolest animation change in the whole pack. The new roll animation is interesting as well. You character does a cartwheel (which fully justifies the increase in rolling speed). Now, it still has a few quirks. For instance, if you are using JA+ and you use your grapple hook, your player uses a "standing" animation while flying through the air. Kind of amusing, at least for a while. The cartwheel I mentioned above needs some fine tuning, because your hands and feet slide across the ground for a short distance. Oh, and if you use the fast stance, well...I hope you don't need that shoulder any more. XD So, as before, if you want to see the new changes to the animations, give it a shot. If you are looking for tweaks to the game or you liked the last two versions, give this a look! ~Dretzel




Only Imperial Stormtroopers are so precise | 5.99 KB

Emperors best troops were defeated by a bunch of rock and stick wielding teddy bears… In fact, according to Wikipedia this is a common feature in action films, the principle is actually called [url=]Principle of Evil Marksmanship[/url], which basically means the bad guys always have rubbish aim… Well, if you ever felt that the Stormtroopers in JKA were a little lax in their targeting, fear no more! Raarventje brings us his mod, fittingly called ‘Only Imperial Stormtroopers are so precise’. Basically what this mod does is make the Stormtroopers in the Single Player side of JKA a bit smarter and more accurate in their aiming. Personally I think this is a good idea for a mod, little changes like that can make quite a difference overall in a game. :thumbsup: So if you like the idea of this mod and want to give it a try, give it a download! :) ~Nozyspy~




TK-231\'s Special Effects Mod V1 Base | 24.87 MB

it first! I will say, first of all, that this mod comes highly recommended by Averus. It changes quite a bit, and just to irritate you even more, I will say this much: READ THE README FOR THE LIST OF CHANGES. Suffice to say, there are some that apparently he didn\'t mention. At least one Gran sound came from Dark Forces O_o which is ironic, because I\'ve been playing that. Anyway, I will mention one bug that I caught unwittingly. In singleplayer, the gunfire sounds don\'t seem to play for the changed weapons. Other than that, the mod\'s fine. I will point out that I love the sniper zoom sound O_,o it\'s quite malevolent, and I will definitely punch an unsuspecting child in celebration. Overall, my words do no justice to this mod. I suggest reading the readme, looking at the screenshots, and see if this would be of any use for you. If you use gun mods, probably not. However, this is definitely worth an inspection =_= - Averus Retruthan




JK2 to JA Multiplayer Maps MOD | 464.68 KB

one is tiny in size - less than half a megabyte. This is, ideally, to help out the the 56kers who want to be able to play old Jedi Outcast maps without having to sit and download something for hours. So the real question here is [i]"Does it work?"[/i] Well, it'll only work if you already have Jedi Outcast, as you'll need the Jedi Outcast assets from your original disc. But if you follow the instructions, this patch seems to work fine. I tested some of the old JO maps on several gametypes. CTF and Duel seem to work as they're supposed to. I'm quite happy to have good ol' BGJ back (Battleground Jedi, for those who unfortunately never played Jedi Knight... I pity you). Of course the JO version isn't quite as good as the JK version, but you take what you can get... Anyway, the point is the patch works fine. The author mentions a couple of bugs he found (I didn't test every level, so I didn't find them, but they may still be there). Make sure to follow the installation instructions in the read-me, and enjoy! ~Inyri

If you like these non-human models, now you can play them in single-player. I guess having Jaden's voice coming out of a Gran is no odder than having it come out of a Kel-Dor. ~Inyri

Complete Species Pack | 1.24 MB

section to increase the ability to mix and match clothing options. However, I noted two major things: - Most models don't have the label applied to them. - Some of the options are mixed up Better yet, this has only two pk3s, so you can only customize certain ones because the engine doesn't support all the models. So, might be a little conflict if you only use conflicting halves. HOWEVER, it is possible to simply put both in and try and figure out what ones are what XD. Honestly, m'lady, I don't think it was necessary to put EVERY SINGLE MODEL into the species section, but rather certain ones with custom additions that aren't easily reachable would have sufficed. However, I'd rather not argue against this idea given that it seemed insane in the first place O_o. Oh well. Maybe it may appeal to you masses. I know I only use the brown cultist model, and I know how to get to that one in a heartbeat. Bored? I know Lady Forge was ¬_¬. Give it a bandwidth nibble, and see if it could be of any use to you. - Averus Retruthan

Animation Switchup | 11.78 KB

\"Force Impale.\" This particular change does exactly what you might expect - rather than the normal lunge, which always seemed kind of silly to me, the animation is changed to the jabby one. Not the first time this has been done, right? Force Push and Pull have also been changed. I\'m not sure which animation pull comes from, but I quite like it [b]much[/b] better than the default. Push makes use of the two-handed lightning animation, which does make for a rather interesting result. The three new katas do indeed look neat - they take advantage of some of the lesser-seen animations in the game (in fact if you don\'t play SP or any of those strange server-side mods, you may have never seen these animations before). I found one possibly large problem, however. After some minor testing with many willing test subjects (read: stormtroopers) I discovered something alarming - the fast and medium katas don\'t actually make contact with their victims. I tried several times, from several angles and distances, but nada. While they look cool, the fact that they won\'t hit anything could be problematic. The strong kata doesn\'t seem to have any contact issues, but its slow speed does leave you vulnerable for a time. Then again, vulnerability is part of the trade off with a kata, I suppose. ~Inyri

Deception | 79.9 MB

acting [i]technology[/i], by the way - all the voice actors were actually quite good, they just didn't have a nice studio to polish up the audio). While this mod consists only of three playable maps, it is actually quite long - I've been testing it all morning and I just only now finished. The story revolves around a Iridonian (Zabrak) mercenary named Phelan who has been hired by the Alliance to investigate a disturbance they did not have the resources to investigate themselves. This leads Phelan on a quest that brings him farther than a mere mission for the Alliance and introduces us to a new threat (which I shall not spoil for you). The maps alone are beautiful, and they are quite consistent from beginning to end. The architecture and style of the maps doesn't change half way through, which is nice. Unfortuntely when I finished testing I had nearly 40 screenshots, so I had to cut it down a bit, so I do recommend you play it to get the full appreciation of the beauty of some of these maps. Now all mods have bugs, and this one is no different. In some of the elevators there was a bit of z-fighting between the red and green buttons. I had a couple of problems with some cutscenes, though I can't say whether or not it was an isolated incident without playing through the mod again, and I told Shadriss I'd have it posted some time today ;). However the mod itself makes these few bugs seem quite insignificant. This mod isn't for the light-hearted who want to just blast on through. It's going to take some thinking, but hopefully it'll be enjoyable. I know I certainly enjoyed it. However make sure to pack up your blaster with a few extra clips - you're going to need them. Highly recommended. Download now. [b]UPDATE[/b]: After speaking with Shadriss and retesting the last two levels I have discovered the cutscenes (and part of the second level, actually) only get bugged if you never obtain the lightsaber. If you do get it everything works wonderously. Now if you're paying attention, like I wasn't, it shouldn't be much of a problem. Just remember that each cutscene has significance ;). ~Inyri




Increased Energy Mod | 1.09 MB

much use in tripling your force regeneration time, as it's real easy to do by enabling cheats and doing g_forceregentime (Whatever Time you want, I think it's in milliseconds), not to mention that you can make it a lot faster. That point aside, having 200 force points was nice, although you can easily get all the force powers in Ja+ with the /amempower command. The points for force power selection are increased as such: Initiate: 22, Padawan: 34, Jedi: 55, Jedi Adept: 76, Jedi Guardian: 100, Jedi Knight: 132, Jedi Master: 166. ~Zach




Movie Saber Clash effects Mod | 115.28 KB

the body look like a saber clash. Overall it gives the effect of a more realistic saber fight because it doesn\'t look like you are actually hitting anyone, making it perfect for movie making. It also makes the saber fights feel faster paced and exhilarating. I can only really see two downsides to this mod, firstly it would give you a bit of a disadvantage in duels, and normally you can tell if you got a good hit in or not. Also you still get the shield effect which kinda ruins the feel of it. Maybe that could be changed in version 2 *hint* I think this is probably one of the most practical mods I have ever seen; I can see a valid use for it. All in all, Good Work -TheSpike




Movie Stances 2.0 | 2.57 MB

weird. In fact, they seem fairly hmmm ... what\'s the word I\'m looking for ... intuitive. To really gain an appreciation for this mod, you need to download it and play it yourself. More than just stances have been changed. There\'s a list of all the changes in the readme. Check it out. I\'m thinking you won\'t be disappointed. [/quote] The stances have been changed to include a stance from Episode III and a melee stance has been included as well. You\'ll find that some force stances have been changed also to make them more accurate to the movie. I\'m still quite impressed with this mod. And there are probably several of you out there who are such pure Star Wars fans that you\'d prefer the saber stances here versus the ones in Jedi Academy. ~AmosMagee




Zeus Academy Ladder | 2.14 MB

simply walk to the top. When I did go down to fight, the enemies were easy to defeat, and they just kept respawning. Maybe it\'s good practice? The \"objective\" of this map is to get to the top of the map, after fighting your way through enemies. Again, this is basically useless because I was never able to \"pass\" the mission. The map itself is somewhat well designed. It is well lit, and has various different methods of getting to the top, like stairwells, statues, etc. The idea of this map/mod is good, though it defeats itself. If there were some way to make the mission end when you reach the top, then it would be worth it. Also, it should be a much longer road to the top, and your character should spawn at the very bottom, not close to the top. This might be a good download if you are just looking to kill some time... well, killing! ~Lord Griever~ [b]New Textures - Yes Bot Support - Yes New Music - Yes[/b]

Dark Force Mod 2010 | 1.37 MB

match. To summarize this preface, where JA+ is to law and order, Dark Force Mod is utter chaos and destruction. Personally I feel pretty stupid for not giving this mod a chance in '07, because I was not aware just how addictingly fun this mod can be. This is essentially what one could call a "cheat mod," as the majority of its contents would be considered overpowered and wholly unbalanced in gameplay, but honestly, who cares? This thing is dedicated to 100% fun. There's a LOT of features, and to go over them all would belabor this review so badly I'd risk boring everyone out of it, so I'll just give you some examples of some of the features available: [b]New Weapons:[/b] The Tusken Sniper, Noghri Poison Stick are unlocked and fully usable, with each having their own alternate fire,(Tusken rifle empowers, stick multiplies shots like bowcaster.) Along with that, the Bryar Pistol has become something like that of a super weapon, with primary fire firing a turbolaser-esque blast, and the alternate releasing a massive nuke missle that annihilates your enemies, splattering their corpse all over the arena. [b]New Powers:[/b] Single Sabers now have [b]ALL[/b] saber stances available for your disposal. There are also several adjustments to the force powers available, such as being able to throw a staff saber with both blades on, and the ability to pop an opponent's head off with force grip. Initiating the "Quad" mode will unlock level 4 force powers, and give your melee a new fireball spell that you can hurl at opponents with extreme prejudice. And honestly, that's not all, so I recommend you take a peek at the readme, as there's A LOT to enjoy. Now, most of what I listed is older features. This 2010 version allows you to set your max health, armor, and force, AND the server's starting bodyscale. Definitely makes this mod even more insane, and a worthwhile product to look at. I implore the masses to download and enjoy this mod. At less than 1.5 MB, this mod is honestly a steal. GET IT! NOW! Fine. [b]*steals it away*[/b] No mod for you =_= [b]P.S. - Weapon in Screenshot #6 can be found here:[/b];113591 - Averus Retruthan




Starkiller Ultima Pack | 8.67 MB

allow context to interfere. The first change promoted is force power effects and animations, with lightning being the most noticeable. Electrical spaghetti.... of both the purple and blue varieties at your discretion! It all looks good.... provided you've got lightning level 3. Below that, you're going to be hitting enemies with a string of particle-accelerated black squares. Push 3 also gets a new animation, though it looks more like a quick Power Rangers muscle flex IMO... but it does remove the tacky bubble thing. Drain 3 now has your character striking a rather lethargic pose which I'm assured is related to Darth Vader's grip stance, but I don't see the correlation to be honest. Still on the subject of animations, the lightsaber and acrobatics departments got a little something too. The fast style has now been switched out with Tavion's one-handed style from Jedi Outcast. The idle stance for both fast and strong styles have been changed too (Twilek and Desann can be seen below modelling both styles respectively), both new idle stances are fine and dandy though the one attached to the fast style will throw up a lot of sparks from constantly grazing the floor. The same is also true of the new idle stance for the dual-bladed saber. They're not bad choices of idle stance, they just require some tweaking to remove their constant floor contact. A new roll sequence is in place, though it seems it's more of a dive-roll now, and the backflip is no longer Jaden Korr's patented Fetal Cannonball Special but is in fact a stylized backflip which you can see executed gracefully by just about any magical girl or Matrix character. The next few contents in this file are basically dependent on other mods, so unless you have those too you'll get limited results. An updated .sab file for AshuraDX's Galen saber and NPC support for Schrodinger/Unsunghero's Galen Marek model are both supplied. However, you will need to download both the saber and playermodel seperately. Rebels and stormtroopers are given the acrobatic abilities of the Reborns, which does at least give them a bit more longevity (all of three seconds), and the final pk3 file of note attempts to make the stormtrooper AI smarter by boosting it's reaction, intelligence, aim, move, evasion and aggression stats to 5... which doesn't actually make them smarter, it just makes them cheat like a Las Vegas casino owner. Eh. Can't possibly be more disappointing than the base AI so whatever. As a side note, the Dragon animation files have also been provided for the animators to have fun with. Definitive opinions on this file are impossible to form. With each individual component you're going to love it or hate it, because each component has been garnished with Marmite and then wrapped up in Marmite-flavoured duct tape. One thing that can be definitively said in this file's defense is that Mr Pwner-san has gone to the lengths of keeping things simple and letting people take their pick of the components as far as reasonably possible. It's definitely worth a look at least. -Mikouen




JamyzGenius First Choice Animations | 8.23 MB

animate characters. Due to this the animations we have are no where near as realistic as what they can do these days, so it’s always good when someone goes and makes an animations mod to spruce up our game a bit. Here Jesus Fernandez Garcia brings us his latest animation compilation mod, which includes a multitude of new animations. As well as a new stances and animations for each of the saber styles, there are also new animations for; force push, force grip, force lightning, rolls, jumps and quite a few more besides! Personally I liked the new roll and jump animations, although they seemed a little too slow in their speed, the animations themselves looked more natural I think. Especially impressive though were the new saber stance animations, particularly the ones for the yellow stance, which was based off Count Dooku’s sword salute as seen in Episode 2 just before be duels Yoda. The animation here looks really cool and it has been well done and it is great to see as opposed to the somewhat more sedate default animations. This animation is also the authors favourite, and I can see why! I imagine this will be the favoured animation and saber style of many players now! There is also a new ‘death from above’ attack animation for the yellow stance and also for the blue stance. Among the new force power animations, the new force lightning animation was probably my favourite, since it now looks like it is taking some effort to shoot those bolts of lightning from your fingertips! There are still some things to be improved though. As I said before, I feel the jump and roll animations are a little too slow and could do with speeding up a little. Also, if you jump a long distance, the somersault animation continues to loop whilst you are in mid air rather than stopping after the initial jump, which looks somewhat unrealistic. Other than that I think some of the animations could do with a little more tweaking, but nothing major. All in all a great animation mod here, one, which I hope, will get a lot of use from the community. So, if you guys like the look of this, be sure to give it a download! :D ~Nozyspy~




New Black Saber - JAPlus V2 | 806.62 KB

first place!) since you cannot have black light. Surely the idea of black light defies the laws of physics in some way?! Anyway, here we have a small mod which changes the black lightsaber blades available in the JA+ mod so that they now have a white core, instead of being solid black. Obviously of course you will need the JA+ mod in order to use this (and presumably the client side part of the JA+ mod too), and you need to put the .pk3 in your gamedata/japlus folder rather than your gamedata/base folder. Personally I prefer the idea of a white core with a black ‘glow’ to the full black saber blade variant, I just think it looks cooler, and also a bit more natural, considering this is how all the other colours of lightsaber blade look. I also think it is a nice monotone contrast between the black and the white. A small mod here, but one that I am sure plenty of people will like. Take a look at the screenies below, and if you like the look of this mod, be sure to give it a download! :) ~Nozyspy~

New Force Lightning Pack | 2.61 MB

into supreme forms. I know what you are thinking, and I HATE YOU FOR THINKING LIKE THAT! Yes, you must obviously think: oh what good is this filth mod to a patrician like myself? This man, Tobe, has given you the ability to change it into the following(and this is just MP): Web Snow Electricity of red and blue Fire Of Red or Green A concentrated beam of energy(green or red) multiple energy beams (green/red) Having tested this before, I can highly recommend this to you, the masses, for consumption and UTTER DELIGHT LIKE A LITTLE CHILD SKIPPING TO AN OIL FACTORY! Yes, children like oil, now be silent. The SP ones are for SP only and consist of electricity and a super concentrated beam of power. How can one not go wrong? What\'s better: the beams trace all the way to a wall, where you can trace your marks of power. The only downside? the range of damage from regular force lightning remains the same. However, this would require severe overhaul of coding, and I think Tobe\'s done enough on his part. He has even generously whipped up a custom soundset for each set of lightning. Overall? You want the brilliant effects you see below? THEN OFFER YOUR PATHETIC BANDWIDTH TO TOBE\'S FILE OF EVIL OR ELSE IT SHALL NOT BE GRANTED. FYI: Beware with what effects mods you combine with this, as I\'ve seen drastic damage done to the effects success back when I was a pk3 packrat. - Averus Retruthan




All Enemies Have Sabers | 25.88 KB

assume it would get a little old, especially when a mob of angry saber-weilding mercenaries killed you. I don't imagine having a bunch of tuskens running at you with lightsabers would be much fun either. However for those of you who are 100% anti-guns, this may prove a neat little mod to have. Apparently this also changes Tavion in the final battle to... well... something else. I know what it is, but I won't ruin it for you. Just be aware it's probably not as exciting as you might expect. Just be aware this pack has a lot of .npc files in it, so if you already have a bunch of NPCs in your base folder you may not be able to use this mod. ~Inyri




General Grievous SP | 702.46 KB

Grievous mod, nearly identical to this one. I am very happy to see that this author, too, included both the caped and uncaped versions of Grievous. That\'s right. Play your favorite villain in the single-player campaign! Thankfully he even has his Grievous combat sounds, something I also made sure to check. Not much needs to be said here. The mod works exactly as it\'s supposed to. Try it out for yourself. ~Inyri

Each NPC comes in its own pk3, so you can pick and choose easily which ones you want to use. ~AmosMagee

JK3 Expanded | 976.26 KB

called JK3 Expanded and basically is a set of new singleplayer missions set on both singleplayer and multiplayer maps which aim to explain those bits we never got to see in Jedi Academy, like; what happened when the Cult of Ragnos landed on Hoth? Well according to this mod they had to fight there way through hoards of mercenaries and Wampa's before they could set up camp and start siphoning all that force energy. During this particular mission you play as a Cultist, and to help you out you have a large gaggle of Snowtrooper's who follow you around and help you with your mission. Unfortunately there aren't any cutscenes or ingame objectives, which is somewhat disappointing, but Foreborn promises us he will work on these things for future projects. As for mission objectives, there are a list of ones you have to accomplish on each level, in the readme, so you know when you have finished the level. Be aware though, that for this to work you will need to put the save games included in this .zip in your gamedata/base/saves folder and then load them up in singleplayer to play them. Despite the fact that there are no ingame objectives or cut scenes I did have some good fun with this mod, especially on Hoth with all those Snowies following you around. Yes I said Snowies, it means Snowtrooper's, I just invented that word, right now. Those of you who read this are witnesses to a historic moment! Go forth and use the word Snowies everywhere! :P Ehem, anyway... The most annoying bug I came across was that on some levels all the textures are missing on the player character. Obviously if you are in 1st person mode this doesn't matter, but if your in 3rd person mode, using a Lightsaber, this becomes rather annoying. All the same though, overall this is a pretty fun mod and I hope to see future versions of it with cutscenes and ingame objectives, then it would be great! Keep up the good work Foreborn! :) ~Nozyspy~




The Force Unleashed HUD v6 | 12.48 KB

much improved for this version, though the lack of antialiasing is still apparent among the edges. A small glitch overall presents itself in the armor bar stacking over the health bar - they don't quite line up right all the time, there seems to be some random shifting, usually with full health and 25 armor but sometimes at other amounts. Another remark I'd make is the ammo count being at the exact opposite end of the screen - I'm aware TFU didn't have one at all, but personally I would have at least moved it closer to the HUD element itself, just to make it easier to check status at-a-glance and get back to the game. From that analysis you can guess that it's not perfected, but it is the final version so if you're in the market for a Force Unleashed HUD for JA, this is probably the one to be using at present. -Mikouen




Ceretus TFU Stance | 9.34 MB

this accurate? Ehhh... sort of. I've seen pictures of what it looks like ingame and this resembles it a little bit, but the position is slanted forwards, his body should be straight. That's about it, I guess. No real description here, since it's just another stance mod. Enjoy. ~Authuran




TFU Backhand Saber Animations | 25.17 MB

care! :) Sylver has swapped around a good deal of animation strings to match the backhanded lightsaber stance that Galak uses from TFU. He has also done this with single-player and MP bots in mind, and has also changed the animations for every other NPC that comes with the game. Thats a fair amount of work to his credit, but it didn't come out quite as polished as you might like. There are several clipping issues with the models, and don't expect to watch the SP cut scenes with any sort of sobriety (hey, I thought it looked funny okay?) Overall, a decent attempt at the backhand stance. Not the best I have seen so far, but good if you like seeing all the NPC's use that stance. -Sared Overall rating: three out of ten biscuits. New Sounds: Yes Bot Support: Yes New Effects: Yes




Realistic Lightsaber Blades, Sounds and Force Lightning

real_effects.rar | 309.89 KB

look more movie like. This is one such mod, however, as well as improving the look of the saber blades to something more akin to the more ‘pointy’ blades in Episode 3, it also adds some new sound effects to the lightsaber as well as some improved force lightning effects. I especially liked the new saber sounds, they sound much stronger and more visceral and I think they are an improvement over the base JKA sounds. As for the force lightning effects, the lightning bolts themselves have been made bigger and thicker, as you can see in the screenshot below. I wouldn’t particularly say they look better than the original lightning effects, but they are certainly not worse either. I would say, rather, that they are best used as an alternative version if you want a change from the base JKA force lightning effects. Personally I liked them, and I think I will keep this file in my base folder for a while, to have a change from the same old base JKA effects! All in all then a cool little mod here, if you want a change from the base JKA lightning effects, and the saber blade effects and sounds, then you will enjoy this mod. Give it a download if you like the look of it! :) ~Nozyspy~




Excellent Saber Blades | 978.71 KB

by the file name, this is another episode III saber blade mod. I can't say if it's accurate or not, because I haven't seen the film in a long time. As with any saber blade mod, though, just take a look at the screenshots, and if you see what you like, download it. Nuff said! ~Dretzel




Clone Wars Stances and Effects Mod | 25.38 MB

JA+, MBII, and OJP support. Now, about the stances themselves. I like the blue stance, which is basically the normal standing position, but with the saber pointed off to the side. Walking uses the same basic stance, but with the legs moving. Yellow holds the saber close, and red looks like it is trying to imitate a certain stance in Episode 2. Dual stance holds one saber forward and one up above, and finally, the staff stance holds the saber back behind the body. Walking stance for the staff looks like the upper half of the body uses the staff walking animation, but the legs use the duals walking animation. Walking stance for duals holds both sabers back, and learning forward, which I think is perfect for duals while running, but doesn't work so well while just walking... If that isn't enough for you, there's also an option to add in some new swings. I personally don't like these much, simply because while they looks kinda cool (though they suffer from the typical animation mod flaw of it not flowing like it should), they cause less hits to get in. However, I liked being able to do that spin attack that Palpatine uses. :p I'm not going to go into the specifics of the changes, but I will say that pretty much every attack is changed. The best way to tell how is to download it and try it yourselves! All in all, this is a good stance/animation mod. It could use a little work, but still worth at least trying out. I suggest giving it a download! Oh yeah, this mod also overwrites the base sabers also, so if you don't want the default ones changed, you'll need to edit the pk3 yourselves...




Dark Force Mod | 1.34 MB

better as it goes along. This one, as with the previous version, is lacking a strange and unique title. Not important, but just something I thought I would mention. :p Anyway, since there were not a lot of changes from the previous version, I\'ll just give you the review to [url=;65839]the Glory of the Sith (v1.6)[/url] review, and list the changes from the previous version to this version, quoted from the readme: [quote] 1. Bot special attack Previously all bot can do saber kata attack, but realize it just wasting bot think-time used for it. So i decided from now on, only 3 special bot can do kata : Kate_Walker, Jaden_Korr, and Jane_Swarbreck. Others bot are no longer allowed to do this special attack. However i\'m still allowed the kick attack. 2. Noghri Stick The previous arc used for noghri alt-fire are to wide (about 50 degree). This is causing the missile spread too far from the target. So i decide to reduce it at 30 degree in cost of the missile now can only charged up to 3 smoke missile. Don\'t worry this is more efficient way and make this weapon shot more accurate. 3. New npc : stboss A stomtrooper commander that use concussion rifle and have 1000 health. They are fun used for bot killer. I always play with them, spawning as much i like at some spot, this npc will waiting bot to respawn near of them and then shot them out! Type \"npc spawn stboss\" to spawn it. Use notarget cheat if you dont want to deal with them. 4. Extra bonus singleplayer Because this mod shared game source with singleplayer, there is some bonus you get : 4.a. Extra Sword & Saber hilt are available. Start a new singleplayer game, when you comes to saber hilt selection menu, scroll down to the end, you will find new hilt are available for you. They are sword and saber that is used in multiplayer part of dark force mod, such as \"Sword of Earth\", \"Mightiness Scepter\", \"Saber of Ice\", \"Saber of Wind\", and etc. 4.b. Full saber dismemberment. Cutting off head, waist, arm, and legs are always happen. You even see the special \"Right hand chopped off\" animation when your saber accurately cut off enemies right arms. 4.c. Unlimited force power (cheat) Type \"playermodel nico_collard\" then you will changed into dark force mod strongest npc multiplayer. You get 999 force power, auto defend from force grip attack, can control enemy body using force telepathy, and bigger playermodel. However, because she is set as \"killer npc\" or dark jedi, you must type in cheat: \"playerteam player\" to make you in light side, otherwise your ally (jedi, kyle etc.) will trying to murder you.[/quote] If you enjoyed previous versions of this mod, go ahead and give this version a try. If you did not like previous versions, I\'d suggest giving this version a try anyway, since a lot has changed. I personally have enjoyed this series of mods.




Makermod Client Plugin | 405.17 KB

I got bored playing by myself after a while. Anyways, this is a very nifty plugin for those of you who want to try out makermod and don’t feel like learning all the commands. Okay. So I start up maker mod, and I wonder how to use the plugin. I should’ve read the readme. Anyways, read the readme, set up your controls, and start having fun. However, it may take a little bit of understanding for some people to use this. But all in all, this was an enjoyable mod to review, and is made to help out people new to makermod! In addition to aiding you in building stuff, this mod will also aid in the administrative part of makermod. So if you wanted to try out makermod but got confused, then download this! ~Zach Note, to use this, you must be on a server with makermod on it, or be running the mod itself, ~I noted in the review that I crashed while using Korriban models. This is not the case for everyone. Many people have had the models work just fine.




Realistic Sabers and Sounds | 1.54 MB

existence. Another way, which is probably what the author intended, was that they would be realistic to the movies. The saber blade itself looks to me to be a little bit more blocky, but not quite blockish. More of a mixture of round and pointy edges. I don\'t really see what the big thing is with making movie sabers, as there is no consistency blade shape in the movies. There are new sounds for this, based from the movie. Some of them are pretty cool, but the one that I immediately found annoying was the one that plays when you hit the wall. other than that they were pretty nice. Then, there are new effects, such as the saber clash. The author used SanJ\'s SaberClashMod ofr the effects. The effects are a nice change to the default clash effects, so it is nice. If you want different sounds, or a different blade, or new clash effects, then give this a try. ~Zach




Advent Children Buster Sword Replacement Mod | 947.04 KB

I like it, though. It's certainly better than pretending the Buster Sword is brand new, but it looks like he just darkened everything up and added a default photoshop texture over the sword, and it just isn't working for me. First of all it looks like the texture stretches, which is no fault of Shadowknight's, but it should have been taken into account. Secondly the texture pattern is just too large. It is better, though, unless you like brand new shiny swords. [i]That[/i] is purely a matter of taste, though. There was one boo boo the author made, which you can see in the screenshot. See, I didn't have Orion's original pack when I tested this, but the author basically just copied the original .sab file so it includes all the entries from the original, so there are a lot of hilts listed that don't actually exist in the pack. This isn't a really big problem, though. If you don't have the original pack, don't use those hilts. If you do have the original pack, then there's no problem. ~Inyri

with an electrostaff. Unfortunately it seems you are unable to choose an uncloaked Grievous as an NPC, which is somewhat of a problem because the cape hasn\'t been culled properly and it\'s perfectly see-through from the front. However you can choose an uncaped version of Grievous in single-player. I forget whether there was already a mod for this, though I think there was... But this also includes some other things, like some new NPC files. However for one of the NPC files you will need to download the magnaguard separately. Before you get all excited over a four-armed Grievous, make note that not only do the extra arms not move independently of the original two, but when you swing they become completely detached from the body, so it\'s really nowhere near as exciting as it sounds. Sorry! But if you\'re a Grievous fan you might want to give this a download and check to see if there\'s anything here that you\'ve been missing. ~Inyri




Stance and Animation Modification | 16.85 KB

uncomfortable and unpleasant, and don\'t mesh as well with the combat animations as the new strong stance does. Strong stance looks like like the normal medium stance, but it has that \"heavier\" look about it. I like it much better than the default strong stance. The real treat of this mod, though, is the blaster block animation, taken from one of the many katas. It looks really cool when you use it, and despite the fact that I don\'t like those other two stances I may keep it just for that. Whether or not you like the stances, however, is entirely a matter of opinion, so don\'t take my word for it - check it out yourself and see what [i]you[/i] think. ~Inyri

it. In fact, it also makes the default hilt purple. I don\'t know why he described it as a black saber if there\'s no black anywhere. It kind of looks like a black [b]light[/b], but not really, if that was the intent, which is anything but clear from the read-me. However on its own merit, it is kind of neat. I like purple though, so I think I prefer the original purple saber. Check the screenshot for a taste of how this saber will look in-game. ~Inyri




Dark Force Mod | 1.02 MB

that: New weapons (a Bryar Pistol that fires rockets?!), super-charged force (on the dark side anyway), cloaking, auto-recharging shields, force that does not need to recharge, etc, etc. There is alot here, but the readme covers everything, and would probably point out more changes to you than I could by just playing through the mod and talking about it... so here is the list: [quote]This mod as the name, makes the dark side force is stronger than lightside Warning this, intended for dark side with full rank (rank 3) THE FORCE : - You can maximize force point to full force power! (you must choose dark side force and set all to rank 3) - Three special force : lightning, grip, drain can be done even enemy in far away range (this force radius is rocky now) - Jump and fly like superman (force jump height is very rocky) - Force meter is totally unused if you are rank 3 in all force - Lots of change i don't remember, email me for more info THE PLAYER : - Player set to undying mode, cannot falling to death, cannot dead by any damage causes - Your Lightsaber will be as great as single player, unlimited saberthrow time, and super damage saberthrow - Armor is now auto recharge, counting up to 100 whenever takes damage - Lots of change i don't remember, email me for more info THE WEAPON : - Special weapon available : Bryar Pistol (use give all to get it), primary attack : strong laser, secondary attack : torpedo rocket (both are deadly like atomic bomb) - Maximum ammo set to 999, and all weapon will shot faster - Your weapon cannot be pulled by force pull (that was annoying right?) - Lots of change i don't remember, email me for more info THE INVENTORY : - Special inventory : Cloaking Device (use give all to get it), if on (active), player will automatically set to godmode and your force power damage will be boost to super damage attack! (force lightning, grip and drain will do extra damage if you using cloak active) if you using cloak, you are the master, truly shadowtrooper, unstoppable juggernaut! - Other special : jetpack, force shield, sentry gun, seeker drone and etc. will have extra activated time - Lots of change i don't remember, email me for more info THE GAME : - Cheats is no longer protected, no need to using devmap again - Fixed sound : force jump : jump1.mp3 force ligtning : gloat1.mp3, gloat2.mp3, gloat3.mp3 force drain : combat1.mp3, combat2.mp3, combat3.mp3 force grip : anger1.mp3, anger2.mp3, anger3.mp3 force push : taunt1.mp3, taunt2.mp3, taunt3.mp3 force pull : victory1.mp3, victory2.mp3, victory3.mp3 - Fixed score (capture the flag, ffa, team ffa, siege, etc) : suicide or killing team mates = -5 (no mercy for idiot) - Lots of change i don't remember, email me for more info THE FRIENDS AND LOVE : Did you ever want to protect a female bot? maybe you jedi fall in love? You can now give god mode or undying for them! Type at the cheat console : "status" (this will show list of all active player, notice the index number! number 0 is must be you the player, and the rest is bot) See which number is you loved bot index, for example if your loved bot index number is 3, then you must type at the console "giveother 3 health" (remember to put slash "", give health is also means give undying mode) giveother is the command, 3 is index number and health is mean give undying mode. syntax like this : giveother If you want to give them something else just type it after index number, for another example : "giveother 3 ammo" = give ammo "giveother 3 weapon" = give all weapon "giveother 3 all" = give everything "giveother 3 armor" = give god mode "giveother 3 weapon_bryar_pistol" = give special deadly weapon, the bryar pistol and etc... :-) - Lots of change i don't remember, email me for more info THE VEHICLE : - Did you have install the siege destroyer map? now if you exit from your ships in space, you will not suffocate to death, forget the horror of the space buddy :-) - Lots of change i don't remember, email me for more info THE FUN : - Did you ever want to feel swimming in the lava? like in taspir or korriban? (the single player maps) - Do it now buddy! just type "devmap " at the cheat console, for example : "devmap taspir1" (to enter first stage of taspir) and then lets go swimming on the lava without fear of death "devmap kor2" (to enter the final stage of korriban) and then swim to lava or bungy jumping to the chasm, ahahahaha :-) "devmap t3_rift" (to enter rift, the burial site of jedi knight) and the jump up to the long way chasm without being dead. BUGS : Sometimes, weapon bryar pistol didn't draw the rocket torpedo missile, If this happen, type "give weapon_rocket_launcher" at the cheat console, switch your weapon to rocket launcher, fire a rocket missile, and then switch again to weapon bryar pistol and shot the alt fire, it should be fixed, and your bryar pistol will launch a deadly rocket torpedo![/quote] [u]Bottom Line[/u] Like Cheating?

Lugormod | 3.18 MB

you\'re new to Lugormod and you\'re not sure exactly what it does? I believe I\'ve explained it all before in a previous review, It\'s good and all but it\'s \'work things out for yourself\' kinda thing, you can basically do anything with the mod, ranging from FFA to Role Playing. Things like \'King\' and admins being able to spawn things etc. Bot\'s are more intelligent, ask YOU to duel and saying.. strange things. You have to try it before you judge it, but I recommend if you\'re going to play it, to play it on a Lugormod server first to see how it works etc. Without a explanation I probably didn’t find half the stuff it can do. So what’s new in this version? [QUOTE]* fixed so that admins don\'t have admin cloak in team games. * added a new game type that I call Battle Ground (for now) * severing duels can be disabled with a g_privateDuel flag. * added the chicken rule (for not accepting duels). It can be disabled with a g_privateDuel flag. * you can now score (persistant) points from bots (if you have less than 10) * added level based force powers and force regen time * added a check to disable invisible model parts (siege_model) * enabled holocron ffa game type * fixed a bug with the jet-packs in siege * fixed a bug that triggered an assertion (saber locks) * added a cvar for shield generators * fixed some minor bugs. * fixed some really annoying memory leaks. * fixed a problem with the spawner command. * turrets that target armed no longer target players with the tele gun.[/QUOTE] I wasn\'t too excited, although I am anticipating version one ;). -Rink Oh and the Windows, Mac and Linux versions are all in this .zip file this time. :)

Even More NPC\'s Mod | 12.9 KB

Tarados Gon are working on. Their next NPC mod called NPC Wars will include several pk3\'s with a Star Wars movie theme for each one. Y\'know, like The Phantom NPC\'s, Attack of the NPC\'s, A New NPC, The NPC\'s Strike Back ... etc. :) But I\'m getting way ahead of myself here because that\'s not the mod we\'re reviewing here. This mod will allow you to spawn such NPC\'s as Eeth Koth, PloKoon, Windu, KitFisto, Dooku, Anakin and Yarael Poof (AAHHH! Creepy toes!) ... among many others. You can find the entire list of NPC\'s below in the readme. It\'s a good collection of NPC\'s. And I can\'t wait to see what you guys have put together for your next mod. :) Especially if there\'s some customization of the NPC\'s. ~AmosMagee




AIMod (beta 5.0) | 1.07 MB

often play against bots, I can\'t really compare anything. But I did notice that the bots were much more chatty. Rosh was taunting me with several different taunts while trying to kill me. Besides the bot A.I. (Artificial Intelligence), the author also included some new gametypes. The ones I tried were Co-op and RPG. With the Co-op sub-gametype, I did find a couple of Jedi who helped me kill some Reborn here and there, but they wouldn\'t follow me around the map - I kinda had to bring the bad guys to them. With the RPG gametype, I really wasn\'t sure how that was supposed to work because the NPC\'s didn\'t react any differently to my presence. They still tried to kill me. There are some other gametypes to choose from. Look in the readme for more. :) One of the biggest and best features of this mod are the new saber stances and specials. If you\'ll take a look at the first screenshot there, you\'ll see that the first stance is just the Dual-bladed saber with one saber turned off, but then we get into the more interesting stances. I didn\'t test each stance, but I found some new special moves with some of the new stances. Not only are there new stances for the Dual-bladed saber, but there are also a few new ones for the single saber, when using the Dual-bladed saber. (Hope that made sense.) The fourth screenshot will show you the first of the Dual Sabers stances. The first one should be recognizable, but the following stances are all new. The eighth screenshot below will show you the basic stances for the Single Saber. Light, medium and heavy (or blue, yellow and red) - then following those are 7 new stances for the single saber. I believe there was a special for each new stance, maybe not. There is a screenshot there, showing just two of the new specials. Very cool looking. :) I had fun playing this mod, but it\'s not something that I would play for long. As I\'ve stated before in other reviews, I just don\'t like changing the game too much. But this might be a refreshing change for when you get tired of the same old gameplay. :) My only major complaint would be that the author didn\'t include real specific instructions on how to play each gametype, or any description at all.

Mara Jade (or a reskin of her anyway), Darth Maul (and some reskins of Maul), Kit Fisto (the Nautolan) and other familiar models and skins from JK2. This is not much more than a replacement mod. And you all know how I feel about those. :P The other things besides replacing models and skins that I noticed here was the ability to use dual sabers instead of one, without using cheats and you can choose a red saber. *shrug* What I like most about this mod is the name of it. I\'m sorry, but it\'s just a replacement mod that had some textures/skins missing here and there and a few errors scattered about. Though this may be of value to those who want to play through the single player JA game using a model or skin from JK2. ~AmosMagee




Force Mod III Classic Edition v1.5

forcemodiii_1.5.txt | 161 B

the download link only!*** It has been almost an entire year since I reviewed the last version of the famous Force Mod III Classic Edition. That was v1.3A, somewhere along the line we must have missed out on 1.4, but now Venomous^Heart and Pitchest^Heart bring is v1.5, which includes lots of new features! Firstly, I will paste in my previous review, as that covers most of the main features, and then we shall proceed on to the updates! [quote]For those of you unfamiliar with the mod, it is a massive and far reaching project which changes many aspects of gameplay, from saber selection and combat, character classes and some fantastic little features available via the ingame menu, which I will come to later. All you need to do is look at the saber selection menu and the incredible amount of detail which has gone into it, with melee damage charts for the various types of weapons. Add to that new saber colours and a whole new saber selection interface and it makes for an amazing change, though the complicated looking damage tables will not appeal to everyone. Check out the screenies below for an example. There have also been some changes to the force power menu, with several force powers now having a \'level 4\', or turning the force up to 11 you could say. Force jump in particular on power level 4 now allows you to jump huge distances. These level 4 powers obviously cost a large amount of points to purchase however! As for character selection, as in Movie Battles II there is a wide variety of different characters to choose from ranging across several different classes, such as Jedi, Sith, Mercenary, Droid and more, with models and skins made by top notch modders. Now onto the features that I was the most impressed with; take a look at the ingame menu and you will see a variety of new options, one of my favourites being the Music menu, which allows you to choose from a variety of Star Wars music, depending on your mood or what you may be doing; using something more dramatic if you are having a duel for example, or perhaps if you don’t like the music used on a particular map you are on, you can pick from this list something which you would prefer to listen to whilst exploring or playing, or maybe just as a bit of ambience. Other features include a bonus button menu, which allows you to hide or show things like your FPS, the HUD, whether or not you want to render the weapon models, etc. which is great for taking good screenshots. I wish there was a mod like this for base JKA, it would save a load of faffing around using the /cg_draw2d and /cg_drawgun commands all the time to get good screenies! XD Another cool feature which is great for both taking screenshots and adjusting your view ingame is the aptly named Views menu, which lets you adjust things like your field of view, and also rotating the camera around your player using slider bars, another cool feature for taking screenshots, especially of skins, like the bonus button menu, this would actually be a great feature for helping the process of taking screenshots of skins for when I am reviewing them. Rather than having to use the modelview.cfg method, which although it works fine, it would still be nice to have a graphical user interface to change the camera position. Then there’s the Optimization menu, which allows you to either choose from a selection of pre-sets, or adjust settings via slider bars to help you optimize your connection and squeeze better ping, and thus less lag out of the game whilst playing online. These are some absolutely fantastic features, and I would love to see these made into separate mods for base JKA, if they haven’t been already, and if they have, please tell me where to get them! There are of course many more features to discover and much more depth to this mod than I have been able to cover here, but I hoped I have managed to touch on some of the most interesting and unique ones. This mod is definitely worth a download for those of you interested in a fantastic Multiplayer mod with loads of great features and a distinguished history, keep up the good work Venomous^Heart! ~Nozyspy~[/quote] As with last time, there are some great features here that I only wish someone would make as separate mods for Base JKA as well! I particularly liked the saber blades, very crisp and sharp, just like a blade of pure energy should look like, rather than the softer, less dangerous looking base JKA saber blades. The saber trails also looked much better; while not quite movie accurate like the OJP saber trails (some fancy coding/texture magic used there perhaps?) they looked much better than the default smudge that JKA uses! And that was just the default blade style... you can actually pick from various different blade effects, including the styles used in each of the movies along with various colours and even a colour changing blade! I also noticed that there are a huge amount of new models and skins included which really adds some variation to choose from in the different classes and alignments, not to mention some of the unique weapons they can use. I was thrilled to see the inclusion of Exar Kun and especially a [i]proper[/i] Marka Ragnos skin, one that actually has legs, not the \'Sith Spirit\' version as seen in the game! I love to see characters that usually only appear in 2D in comics and pictures made into proper, usable 3D characters, though I think Ragnos could have done with slightly darker red skin, he seems a little pale for a member of the [url=]Sith Species[/url]. Whoever made these skins, please release them for Base JKA too, I would desperately love to review Ragnos and Exar Kun individually! I do have a few grumbles though. I found the lightsaber type and style selection menu to be a little confusing. Apparently most of the Jedi/Sith classes can only use the basic Blue, Yellow and Red forms as already found in Base JKA, but certain classes can put force points in a 4th box in the lightsaber section of the force powers menu, this allows them to use Dual and Staff sabers, as well as the ability to choose between different lightsaber forms, such as Juyo, Shii-Cho and Soresu among others. This may be my fault, down to the fact that I did not have time to properly read through the readme. However I think a help menu in game that explains the basics of how to choose a class and also how to spend force points would be a great help! Overall this is a big and very impressive update to Force Mod III Classic Edition, I would recommend giving it a try if you haven’t already! :) ~Nozyspy~ And now, for a full list of the updates, straight from the author: [quote][u]New Additions and Model Changes[/u] - Juyo Form improved with completely new updated animations. - Two new Saber Styles added; Luminara Unduli (Soresu) and Marka Ragnos (Shii-Cho). - “Wookie Pike” weapon added to staff selection. This weapon will kill an enraged Wookie in a few strikes but makes for an extremely poor melee weapon. - Models re-organized to fit the classes. - Additional models added (see readme folder for credits). - Added the Xtra small (XS) model size and assigned some models to this catagory. - Ancient Sith skin now comes in 2 versions; the standard medium size for Sith saber classes and Extra Tiny (XT) for the Dark Sage class to compete with Jedi Ancient\'s shapeshifting ability. [u]Combat Balances: Adjustments and Improvements[/u] - Melee modifications throughout for improved balance (see ingame Melee charts for reference). - Red/Purple forms given shortened duration JKA base yellow kata. - Blue Lunging kata removed, replaced with fast forward slash attack. - Butterfly kata returned to staff. - Vong defense vs guns increased. [u]Bug Fixes [/u] - NPC\'s fixed with modified models (players using only default fm3 will be crashed by them). - Twin saber flying kata replaced with tornado saber kata due to animation glitch with the first one. - Bots edited to move better, use abilities better and fix bugs. - Vong, Tusken, Noghri and Royal Guards no longer make saber sounds. - Vong, Tusken, Noghri no longer have force adept taunts and have been given bonus martial arts moves. - Royal Guards weapon glitch fixed and now have 2 forms with bonus martial arts, weapon sounds and a force adept taunt. -Movement speed bonuses on melee weapons removed due to glitches. -Power restrict removed from Grievous sabers and electro staff due to glitch.[/quote] ***Please note that due to the size of this file, we could not upload it to JKFiles directly.

LFPack Modification | 3.64 MB

could call it. I'm going to take up the author's offer and just quote what all he did, 'cause explaining in my own words...well, pointless! [quote]Changes: * Game Loading Screen: It changes the image that appears when the game begins to load. * Menu music: It changes to the Rebuilt Jedi Enclave song you can hear while playing KotOR II: The Sith Lords (hope this is not taken as Spam or something :P). * Console background image: Gave it a bit of blue tone but principalle more brightness. * Menu Background image: I played a bit with Constrast and Brightness :P. Also made the Circle in the center black and changed some arrows to a brighter blue. * Button color background: Made it brighter * Game Cursor: Changed it for the one you have in Jk2, and changed the "blade" from blue to red. * Server connection/ Initializing Screne: Changed the whole image. * Game Hud: Changed the hud to a one with our Clan Logo, made the hud grey, made the Health, Armor, Ammo and Force bars brighter also. * Saber Core: Althought I made it brighter, I'm not very sure that this change can be easily noted. * Lightning: I gave both the Flash and the lightning itself a blue color. * Scope: Gave it a tone of Red, changed the circle that spins when looking further, turn the power charging bar to black, and made a "cross" in the center of the scope. * Menu and scoretable: When you are inside the game, and press "Esc" the menu bar that appears on the top, well that bar was given a darker blue tone, and also to the one from the score table.[/quote] So, there y'have it. The screenshots'll tell a better story than I will at this point, so peek n' download. I command it. - Averus Retruthan




ForceMod III Classic Edition - Version 1.3A Basic | 178.42 MB

updates since the last version: [quote]Version 1.3A Changes (from Version 1.3) - Corrected Ki-Adi-Mundo form style ability by only providing wall grip ability (with no wall run and wall flip. - Corrected some name form spellings in the Melee 1 Chart located in the Saber Menu section. - Restricted Hirmans models to their proper class selections for Sith & Jedi. Version 1.3 Changes (from Version 1.2) - Expanded the Dual Sabers selections section. You can now choose up to 12 saber hilts for either saber1 or saber2. - Added Saber powers 1-3 section in Saber menu for saber classes that do not specialize in level 4 saber (Warden, Sentinel, Cardinal, Crypt Guardian) - Anakin style was added as an additional Djem So form. - Removed the forced spectate mode between class changes. - The "1" key was reactivated for use with key binds. - For balancing purposes several melee modifications were made for various saber forms and classes (please consult in-game Melee Charts) - Added Hirman's Darth Bane, Darth Plagueis, Asajj Ventress, Ahsoka Tano, Cad Bane, and AT-RT Driver skins - Added Zkyo's Ingame Server Join Menu. - Some saber animation place-holders were changed back from OJP version to FM3 defaults due to ongoing modifications and improvements. - To make room for the new Menu modifications the Fourth Person along with Zoom-In and Zoom-out were removed from the Xbinds section.[/quote] For those of you unfamiliar with the mod, it is a massive and far reaching project which changes many aspects of gameplay, from saber selection and combat, character classes and some fantastic little features available via the ingame menu, which I will come to later.

Royal Guard Pack v2 | 12.3 MB

dog95\'s bot support for said skins and bringing them over to JKA. Now dog95 is back with an update which adds an interesting Single Player mod. I should point out that you should only use one of the .pk3 files included here, as one of them is just the compilation mod from last time and the other; RoyalGuardWithDarkside.pk3 is the one that mods the singleplayer side of the game. What the SP mod does is switch round the characters in singleplayer, so that Luke becomes a Shadowtrooper, Kyle becomes Carnor Jax, Stormtroopers become Rebels and Cultists become Jedi. I suppose you could say it makes it like you are at an Imperial or Dark Side academy as opposed to Luke\'s Jedi Academy! Well, that’s it for the updates, so below I will paste in my original review from last time around about the original mod! ~Nozyspy~ [quote]Ever fancied pitting your wits against some Royal guard bots, maybe even spawning an army of them to fight? Well now is your chance! What this mod here does is take Eric Landreneau\'s classic JK2 Royal Guard/Carnor Jax/Kir Kanos skins and breathes new life into them by not only making them available for JKA but also adding bot support to them as well! If you want to use these skins in singleplayer there are console commands included in the readme that you can use to change your playermodel in SP. Not only that but dog95 has also added HOUOU\'s Katana Pack for that extra dose of realism! Even though this is mostly only a compilation pack, it is nice to see these classic skins in JKA and enhanced with bot support! Be sure to give this pack a download if you like the look of it! ;) [b]New Sounds:[/b] No [b]Bot Support:[/b] Yes [b]Team Support:[/b] Yes ~Nozyspy~[/quote]




Alora2 SP Fix | 1.52 KB

always pondered why they'd bother to negate the other Alora model, other than because of the deformation hole in the back. Then again, that didn't stop the cultist from debuting, did it? Anyway, Vemarkis, a newcomer, has taken the initiative and finally fixed the issue, having the Taspir Alora utilize the other, previously unused alora model. It was instantaneously refreshing. IN-STANT-TANE-EE-USS. I checked in SP to ensure it had the intended effect, and everything works perfectly. So little effort, yet such a big difference. Why this hasn't been done publicly before is beyond me, but no more. I'm definitely going to keep this around, as I personally appreciate the change, however minuscule it may seem. Acquire this if you use Alora at all, be it an NPC or if you play SP profusely. - Averus Retruthan




Jedi Outcast Saber Cursors | 211.04 KB

colours too! In the .zip is a choice of yellow, orange, red, purple, cyan, blue, green colours, all you need to do is pick the colour you like and put the corresponding .pk3 in your base folder, and voila! Just make sure not to put more than one of the .pk3’s in your base folder at a time, since the mod wont work properly if you do. Overall, a small but cool mod here, I think this is one that I will keep in my base folder! If you guys want a piece of classic JK2 in JKA, then be sure to give this a download! :) ~Nozyspy~




Telekinesis | 121.61 KB

various refinements that the author has made since the last version, the essence of the mod is summed up pretty well in the readme where the author explains: [quote] This Mod replaces force choke with telekinesis (Moving people around with your mind), makes people react in a cooler way when you force push them and replaces close range drain with choke.[/quote] After trying this mod out, I can say that I much prefer the new animations for enemies when you force grip (or Telekinesis should I say), they look much cooler and more cinematic. The same can be said for the new force push animations as well, enemies now look like they are being knocked back by a powerful force, rather than just falling over. I couldn’t quite get in the right scenario ingame to test out the new force drain animation, which is replaced by the force grip animation at close range, however. Altogether this a cool little mod, and considering that it makes enemies react more realistically to your force attacks and also makes the animations of such look much cooler, I think this is a mod I will be keeping in my base folder! :) Make sure to give this a download if you like the sound of it! ~Nozyspy~




Movie Battles II NPC Pack | 5.14 KB

Battles II, or you\'ll need to go download it. Most of the NPCs seem to have very similar stats, and I\'m still trying to figure out why Luke has Force lightning... But otherwise make sure to check the read-me for an idea of the NPCs included. ~Inyri




New Force Lightning Pack 2 | 6.46 MB

effects to the table, there\'s no chance that there isn\'t something available for you to drool over. The following new Force lightning variations are available in this pack:[list][*]Force Ifrit[*]Force Ifrit 2[*]Force Shiva[*]Force Shiva 2[*]Force Bat[*]Force Bird[*]Force Ivy[*]Force Death[*]Force BeamZ[*]Force Ice[*]Force ElectBlue3[*]Force ElectRed3[/list]Some of these are really cool. My favorites are the Shiva pair, Force Ice, and Force Bat. Each variation features its own sounds that really polish off the effect. And if you want the whole nine yards, make sure to grab the skins that go with each Force lightning variant (for instance Dracula goes quite well with Force Bat). Not a bad compilation, if I do say so myself, and not something we get a chance to see modified to such an extent very often. Well, never actually! So good work to Tobe, yet again. ~Inyri




MBII Stance MOD | 12.08 KB

idle looks like. Simply put, this changes all 3 saber stances to a standing idly animation, saber down at your side, which, to your disadvantage, would easily kill the combat initiative of knowing what stance your opponent would be using. However, this was targeted for a specific audience, so that is acceptable. For the record, I would read the readme, as the author has specific instructions. Know that he hasn\'t tested the mod on your beloved JA+ ._. so beware. Don\'t care about stance advantage and just prefer to stand calmly in battle? Personally, I wouldn\'t mind it if it were just me, but I\'d prefer to be the only one. Regardless, if the idea doesn\'t bother you, THEN SUBMIT BANDWIDTH - Averus Retruthan




JK2 Animations | 553.62 KB

and running stances from JK2 better than the ones in JK3? I know I personally do. The file I have here is a mod to change the idle, walking, and running stances to the ones in JK2. It does not change any of the actual stances while the lightsaber is on and the player is not moving, however. Also included is support for JA+ for those of you who use it. Give this a download if it sounds good to you. [/quote] So what\'s new? Well, that depends on which of the 6 included pk3s you use. There\'s the Version1Fix pk3s and the Version2 pk3s. For version 1 fix, all that\'s new is an error where when the character\'s legs aren\'t on the same level, it will still use the JK2 stance for the upper body. For version 2, apparently the legs will not bother re-elevating themselves on uneven ground. For both, from what I could tell, the wall run animations have been changed to the JK2 versions of them. Included is support for BaseJKA, JA+, and OJP for both versions of this file. Give it a download if you liked the JK2 Animations.




Movie Lightsabers | 66.57 KB

basically another saber mod. This one makes your saber tips to be like the ones in episode three. But since the saber tips generally change during the movie, there isn\'t much of a point. But still, it\'s not too a bad thing to try. The author has changed the tips on the saber, as well as fiddling with the saber trail, along with a few other things, like the clash effects. It doesn\'t really matter to me, but it might to other people. I must make a side note concerning screenshots. Make them big, so people can see what they are. Don\'t make them tiny, like the ones that are provided, which were too small to upload (i.e the system rejected them), and resizing them would take what small quality there was and kick it in the shins.[/quote][b]Changes[/b]:[list][*]blades slant inwards at tip[*]no steam upon impact[*]new saber flare[*]no marks on people upon impact[*]blades are thinner[/list]~Inyri




Highspeed Melee 3 | 484.9 KB

you must put [japlus_gla_anims.pk3] with JA+ Mod. (Means you MUST have JA+ installed. Something I will NOT do) One more, a balance wasn\'t appropriate with multi-player. Therefore, some are being adjusted. Because a problem was found, fast stance was changed to new stance. Then, even a single-player can use a new saber stances. 1.Melee motions The number of frames of meleemotion and a speed were revised. Former back running was deleted, and the left kick and front get up were amended with multi-player. One back flip was changed with single-player. 2.Saber stances Saber stance of medium and dual was added newly, and fast was amended. 3.Melee effects Melee effects with single-player were amended. 4.Melee sounds Melee sounds were amended.[/quote] And here’s the previous review: [quote] Well, first off, this is a melee and animation mod, so it changes a bunch of animations! It has a MP and an SP version. It changes melee animations, and gives an optional saber stance change. However, the file size has been vastly increased with the fact that you can choose which things to have, be it just the saber stance, everything, everything but the saber stance, and what-not. So, we trade file size of customization. I\'m just going to start off with the new saber stance. It changes the stances for Strong and Fast styles, as well as Staff. It doesn\'t change the stances for Dual sabers, or Medium style. It does change the walk back animations, however, but only for fast and strong styles. Although with the way your players head moves to look at people, your head looks like it\'s going to twist off. Also, on ledges if you position yourself just right while using the fast stance, your character goes wild and you start to go into something that resembles a loop. But, you can get out of it by just going over the ledge. The run back animation looks...funny to say the least. It looks like the character\'s on a wheeled chair and is going all over the place. He really looks like he\'s sitting down. Now for the melee part. This does change the melee animations in JA+. For better or for worse, that really for you to decide. I did notice a small thing with the left and right roundhouse kicks (Hey, it\'s what I call the kicks when you do alt attack + W+ A/D). Anyways, the animation would have a brief pause after doing it, so your character would stop for a split second. One kick, I did like was the regular alt attack kick that was modified. I was disappointed that this didn\'t have more changed animations. This overwrites JA+\'s animations, so I\'m not sure if this will work on a basejka server. Now, for the SP version. From what I can tell, it has most of the features of the MP version, except for melee is sped up, and there\'s no saber stance changes. But, there is an added effect to the kick. It looks like a small explosion. Yay, now everyone seems to have either explosives or bags of blue stuff hidden in your shoes. This certainly took some time, so if you like it, download it.[/quote] ~Zach




Shadows Of The Sith(SOTS) Darth Maul(DM) | 46.75 MB

everything that Darth Maul did in the movie, with the exception that you invade Theed, where in the movie you were already in it, and in this you win. There are several missions in this mod, and I must say that the win/lose menu really confused me. It was the same message whether you died or won, and the menu was exactly the same. You could choose any mission to start with, so you could kill Qui Gon and then go fight him again. What kind of sense does that make? It doesn’t matter, I’d just like it more if you were forced to do the missions in a linear fashion. The maps were simple, but the author does point out that he did most, if not all of putting this together by himself. The cinematics were simple, but at least there were cinematics for this. But in the majority this was a pretty fun total conversion, and is part of a series that is yet to be finished. So download it and try it out! ~Zach




DC-15s Blaster | 974.64 KB

did a forward jump I could see a space between the lower edge of my screen and the hand on the first person view. The model itself appeared to be simple, but detailed to me, although I really couldn’t see that much in-game. Then again, when you’re looking at a weapon model in-game, you don’t see much. Anyways, this looks good, and in certainly an improvement from the previous version. There have been a lot of improvements to this model, so enjoy. ~Zach




Twi'lek Tint Colors | 232.72 KB

so maybe you didn't want to be eaten my a rancor, but I think you can see where I'm going with this. This mod adds eight color choices for the Raven twi'lek female model, including brown, pink, orange, line, green, teal, violet, and black. If you didn't have enough variation before this ought to be a step in the right direction! Now, if you're an avid Twi'lek model user, you can have that bit of extra customization to make your skin stand out as your own! ~Inyri




Main Menu Title Video (Vader vs Luke) | 12.88 MB

scene, and the quality isn\'t really sacrificed here, so you can see it pretty well. It\'s not really short, either, so it\'s a good flight from the norm. I\'d recommend it. [b]The Minus[/b]: Other than the file-size being reasonably large, the grid over the video makes it very hard to see. Sure, we should all know what\'s going on, but removing the grid would have made this mod 100% better, in my opinion, since it\'s not very hard at all to do. Even with the minus, it\'s a mod not many people try to do, so kudos for taking the time to learn how to make a ROQ video. I\'d recommend to everyone to try this out, unless you don\'t like Return of the Jedi *cough*blasphemy*cough*. ~Inyri




Battle of the Heroes Duel Music | 3.37 MB

think I can explain it any better than that, because if you don't know it.. then we have a problem. **claps hands** thanks for putting this together. -Lizardking




Nina Mod 1.5 | 36.19 MB

As a result, she is neither Sith nor Jedi, but is host to a number of neutral powers and one power of each side of the force. I believe the author describes her well when he says: "But talk about money with her, and she’ll become your best friend." Larry has proven that he has a firm grasp of Radiant with this latest addition to the Nina storyline. If you want to see the original review and screenshots, go here. In addition to the original mod, Larry has added a third level to the mod based on Tatooine. He has done a wonderful job of capturing the SW feel to his levels, even though I think he could have supported it with a better storyline or more expansive levels. The only bug in the mod was the lack of voices. There ARE cutscenes, but the author seems to have left out the audio bytes for each scene. Overall, I felt wanting for bigger, more including levels. A custom skin for the heroine wouldn't have hurt as well. -Sared




New Crosshairs Selector | 13.05 KB

a crosshair of their liking, which will then be used as their crosshair ingame. innocent Hawk points out he is not the original UI scripter for this mod, and that he borrowed that particular set from MeusH (Amadeus Wieczorek), but he\'s made a totally new set of crosshair patterns for you to use. personally, I tink this is pretty neat, and some of the new crosshairs are really cool and designed quite interestingly. Definately worth a download! :D -TiM




ForceMod III - Return of the Sith (Manual Install) | 38.94 MB

Academy. ForceMod III - Return of the Sith gives you the option of nearly 30 different classes. I can\'t even list all of the classes here, there are just too many. But as an example, as a Jedi Warden, you get a limited number of force powers, a lower saber attack level, but you get a Bryar. As an Aurorian, you get all light side force powers (up to level 4!) and level 4 attack and defense at max, but no other weapons other than your sabers. There are many other variations on these limitations which really seem to balance the mod/game. There are several new stances added - some specifically for single, dual or staff sabers. Some of the sabers are destructable as well. There are many new special moves added and a ton of other stuff including, but not limited to, cloaking, flame gauntlet, optic radar and a jetpack. There\'s just so much here, I really can\'t cover it all. Download this mod and check it out. I wouldn\'t be surprised if this starts popping up on a bunch of servers. :D ~AmosMagee




Clone Trooper Rifle and Some Extra Sounds | 527.77 KB

while to notice that much of a change, although as I always say I\'m not the biggest SW fan so I can\'t judge sound accuracy when it comes to things like guns. The new sniper HUD is definately different, has a slight bug with the power indicator (it\'s not lined up correctly) but it\'s not that bad. Of course there is a bug and this is the second weapon mod in a row that has had a simlar bug! Look at the screenshot below, the shader isn\'t working for the image. I tested this one on my GTK install of JA (I use 2 installs on my PC) and this happened so I know it wasn\'t for the same reason as the other. As I said, a mini-mod but for some it will be worth it, you have to download to find out though! -WadeV1589-




Boba Fett SP | 290.91 KB

where the costumes change, such as the hoth level. But enough of that. If you want to play as Boba, and fight yourself in one of the levels (ought to be fun) then come and download this now! There is also a Jetpacking version of the Bounty Hunter to play as :) ~Szico VII~




Blood+ | 63.83 KB

blood is very good. Some people fall in love with gore stuff like this then this mod might be that one mod that will make you die. When you strike a player it squirts some blood, but when its a true battle it's a bloodbath isn't that delightful! One thing I wish they could do is put new sounds on these things like every 5 kills have it say Monster Kill or something similar. I liked the quality, but when you have the blood mod for both mp and sp it can mess up the quality of graphics so watch out there, but nothing to worry about :). Overall this is great for gore people now if you pass out at the sight of blood then this is NOT for you :). If you love blood like some people that I know then this is perfect for you and when I say perfect I mean perfect! It just splatters all 8 pints (I believe) worth of blood splatters everywhere even on your shoes! The blood stays on the ground and gets all over the walls if you are close enough. Great job Snowgim this is great for anyone that likes blood in their game :). -XgamerX




Blood Mod | 40.94 KB

The blood sometimes splashes onto walls and floors but you have to be very close to the walls, and I mean VERY close, or it will just vanish. As for floor blood, I dunno It just seemed to be random whether it stayed or not. Now, while this is a good idea, and the blood once on the walls/floor looks great, the actual animation when it\'s coming out of the body isn\'t that special. You hit them, and a load of small red spheres, globs of blood come flying out of the body - sounds nice but looks odd. It\'s a nice download despite this, because it looks cool to see your enemies splattered with blood, and generally increases the carnage ingame! Who wouldn\'t want that? :) ~Szico VII~




New Saber Colors | 15.98 KB

get the current saber colors and modify the RGB components to alter the color, that's all there is to it. I must admit these colors do look neon, which is nice. I like the idea of the sabers being something "strange" and neon glow sticks works for me. Like I said though, this is a very simple mod so don't expect much apart from neon colors! -WadeV1589-




Kel Dor & Rodian Male Sound Fix | 1.14 KB

taunt and how human it sounded for the Kel Dor and Rodian Jaden. So what I\'ve done is edited the sound.cfg of each and replaced them both. Kel Dor now uses the Gran sounds for grunts and taunts. The Rodian Jaden now uses the actual rodian soundset in MP. Sounds pretty straightforward, right? There is, unfortunately, one issue: the Rodian Jaden still uses its old sounds, despite this mod. I suspect the reason for this is a typo in a folder name: \'jedi_rdm\' should be \'jedi_rm\'. Despite that, I like the Kel Dor sounds. I\'d still like to see a second version that actually replaces the Rodian Jaden\'s sounds though wink Neat little mod - you know you want it if the Kel Dor Jaden\'s sounds annoy you. -Caelum[/quote] n\' MagSul sed this: [quote]Holy crap, that\'s embarrassing. I tested it, it worked. Y\'know why? You were right caelum! Tis a bad idea to save your own mods into the assets, things get beffuddled. I already had the original one (that worked) in my assets0. When I made that it was a quick re-slap together and presto - typo. My bad. I\'ll send the fixed one in. o_o [/quote] Then this thing said: [quote]IMHIERREVIEWPLZ[/quote] The end. - Averus Retruthan

Star Wars Movie Duels - The Original Trilogy - Demo

mdtotdemov2.exe | 96.31 MB

and TFU. Well, this little mod takes care of that one! Welcome to Movie Duels - The Original Trilogy! Although this is just a demo consisting of a single level, the fight between Obi-Wan and Darth Vader from A New Hope, it's still quite a bit of fun. It's almost as well done as Movie Duels 2, however, I found that some of the animations are a bit weird. For example, when Vader gets knocked over in the last part of the level if you play as him. A big chunk of wall hits him, and he just stands there for a second, as if he is trying to decide whether or not he should fall over from it. I also had a bit of a problem with the fact that when playing as Darth Vader, I was able to pull Obi-Wan into the pit in the hangar in the first part of the fight, killing him with almost no work at all. In the second part, he jumped in himself! I literally hit him twice with my saber during the entire fight. Even so, it's best to keep in mind that this is just a demo. Anyway, I'm definitely looking forward to a full version of this mod. It is worth the download, if you can stand the .exe file format.




CloneWars Mod - Sounds and Effects | 5.3 MB

:S Basically what we have here is a great deal of the sound effects work produced by the Clone Wars mod team that has unfortunately disbanded due to inactivity. We have however been left which quite a large library of new sound effects here which include things like weapons fire, walking sounds, new spawning sounds, new health and shield pickup sounds and more. Third (AKA Bluestormtrooper) explains more about the ill-fated mod and the excellent work that has been released here in his readme. All the sounds that I listened to were good quality recordings and were made by people who obviously new something about the art of [url=]foley[/url] (the art of making such sound effects) and some of them sound as good as the base JKA sound effects I think! A bonus is that this file also includes some .efx files to actually change the visual effects ingame! It’s unfortunate for any mod to die, especially one that never saw a proper release, but unfortunately that happens. What is good though is that some of this mod team’s hard work has been preserved here for the rest of the community. Since this is not a mod in itself the file does not contain a .pk3, but rather all the individual sound files. Hopefully the people in the community will make good use of these new assets, just remember to properly credit the original authors for their hard work here! Personally I would love to see these sounds taken and made into a proper sound effects mod, I think that would be a worthy use for this work and I’m sure people would enjoy it! So, if you fancy taking such a challenge up, then why not give this file a download? :) ~Nozyspy~

AdZ's Force Mod | 9.62 MB

Effects - New Grip Sound + Animations - Speed trail and Force Push 'Bubble' Removed - New Force Lightning Sounds + Effects - New Force Shield Colour (now Cyan/Blue) - Force Push/Pull Steam effect now less visible. - New Force Icons Overall, all of these changes are definitely for the better, especially in the icon department. They now have this very clean and clear-cut feel to them. They're quite a beautiful set of replacements. The only oddity I did notice with them was generally when you used rage and it wore off, there was a white square around the icon which didn't look too good. Then again, name 5 people who actually use Force Rage, let alone use it well? -_- The grip change was...interesting, I suppose. I wasn't too impressed with the "grip victim" animation, just because it felt too puppet-y I guess. There wasn't enough struggling, plus I'd think the targets arms would be waving around a little more erratically, wouldn't you think? That aside, the new animation looks a lot better, because it doesn't look like you're constantly aiming for your opponents throat, plus it makes it look like a more forced telekinesis, which looks quite entertaining. There's also no more bone-crunching grip noises. Definitely a good change *thumbs up* Overall, I'd definitely recommend this file to anyone. It's not exactly soul-shattering, but it's one of those mods where one could say: "Oh yeah, that's definitely a welcome change." Give it a shot, and judge for yourself =_= - Averus Retruthan




Dark Side Perspective | 69.57 KB

characters become the \'bad\' ones, but it also makes some other minor changes, such as only being able to choose a red bladed saber from the saber menu. To be honest, I personally wasn\'t thrilled with this mod. I\'ve seen this sort of thing done before, multiple times. However, for those who still play the single player game, and want a slightly new experience, give it a download and have fun with it. I\'ll wait for another version with more features.




Cyan lightsaber blade + new force effects | 54.2 KB

one: [quote]This mini-mod will change the orange saber blade to cyan blade. I added some old force effects I modified, too. Force push/pull will not have the \'blur\' around the person, same with grip (only in SP). I also added JK2 lightning and orange force drain I did once. I edited the saber cores, too. They\'re simple, but they look good in-game.[/quote] Now, to fill in the holes. This won\'t work with JA+ at all, nor will most of the force effects. It\'s basically most effective in base JA. I really didn\'t notice the difference in the saber cores in their own right, except that they blur pure white when kata\'ing. The force techniques do as they say, but one was left out: Mind trick no longer has the sparkly aura around a person\'s head when under the influence of MT...this change, to be honest, is stupid. Hate to be blunt but =_o that sparkle aura was what made sure that you knew people didn\'t see you. Adding this mod would basically turn MT into a \"shot in the dark\" power. Granted, may add to some challenge, but honestly, I wouldn\'t take chances. For the majority of you who don\'t use MT, then don\'t worry. This file is still recommended for your bandwidth\'s consumption =_>. - Averus Retruthan

Hercules and Xena Skins | 100.4 MB

that it adds/replaces a whole bunch of skins with their Xena or Hercules counterparts. Don't ask me why Luke=Hercules or why the rebel pilot is now a Mon Mothma reskin that still has a man's voice... these details are beyond me. What I do know is that I apparently didn't watch Xena long enough to know who all these characters are, or what they're supposed to look like. I do know what Xena and Hercules are supposed to look like, though, and I can tell you right off the bat that no base assets model is going to be able to capture either of them... and I wasn't too far off. Most of the skins here actually are a little off, mostly because the faces are one notch down from blasphemy. It's like the author put a lot of effort into adding all this stuff, but very little into refining it. Most of the faces are not quite lined up -- a lot of the mouths don't match the mouth on the model, so when they talk they look silly -- and a lot of skin tones between meshes don't match. And don't even ask me why you would skin an arm texture over a poofy sleeve. That one I can't begin to fathom. Long story short, this needs a lot of work and a lot more attention before it's playable in an enjoyable fashion. As a big Xena fan myself, I'd love to see a great Xena skin. The one here only has a passing resemblance to Lucy Lawless, which is for me at least a big disappointment for what could be a very interesting mod, if the author would take the extra time, work out the kinks, and really place the appropriate emphasis on the details. The big picture is all good and fine, but without the details it's more of a sketch than a portrait. ~Inyri[/quote] Now let’s start by saying that this looked interesting to me and though I was no fan of Hercules and Xena I do like however Greek mythology. First we’ll talk about all the goodies in this mod. There are sabers, hilts, tons of skins to mix and match, weapon reskins, hotkeys assigned for both cheats and npcs. Also you have a very handy button for changing skins on the fly. And many npcs. Now let’s discuss the material. Some of the skins look decent but the textures don’t seem that great to me I don’t know why but there is something funky about them. The clothes don’t really look natural up close and the faces seem to have a bit of skin tone mismatch. The sabers were good but not really all that impressive. It comes with a few hilts and while some look good some just look like they were rushed and not fully completed. Now this pack also replaces the menus and loading screens with a collage of pictures from the characters of the shows but the menus just have a small pig with a red cape which doesn’t really make any sense at all but ok. The Single player campaign was completely changed with the skins on this pack. There were some bugs, at the end there was this bug that maybe only happened to me, but when Tavion is possessed by Ragnos her body is changed to this untextured reborn looking thing. And the same happens when you kill her. Also at the end Kyle’s replacement gets swallowed into the ground and Hercules which replaces Luke is also swallowed only to his hip so you see your character walking next to a legless Hercules and Kyle seems to be talking from under the concrete. Oh and the Mon Mothma reskin is still acting as a pilot which freaks you out when you hear such manly voice, but I guess it's funny though. The MP element is just standard, but with all the skins available including the Ragnos reskin which in my opinion is one of the best looking reskins in the pack, adds a bit of variety. Overall it’s an original idea that fans will love given the options to select either mortals, gods, and demigods. It provides a great selection of outfits and for the male audience there are some provocative outfits included here. The one skin that I would say definitely needs it’s own model is Medusa as the Twi’lek female doesn’t really make justice to this specific character. I hope that the V3 is better, this is an improvement don’t get me wrong I saw V1 but it still needs a lot more work, maybe some more texturing and make the skin tones match, and use shaders to help you out. So if you like Xena and Hercules or just Ancient Greek Mythology then this pack is for you just don't get your hopes up too much. [i]Lady_Trinity[/i]




'Cool' New Disruptor | 483.11 KB

can tell, the only thing the author did to the disruptor skin was desaturate it. Now, that doesn’t take much effort, but seeing as it’s a weapon reskin…you don’t really expect too much. The new hit effect was interesting. It’s blue, and I have no idea why it would be. So that’s just about all that’s in this, with the addition of some sounds for the disruptor. ~Zach

MA5B Assault Rifle | 1.06 MB

and the fact that the first person view stinks as it\'s all in the upper-right hand corner of your screen. Mainly because this isn\'t just the model. It\'s just a reskin of the model. So with that said, I don\'t really see any major difference. I think that I\'m just going to stay silent about what I think of this and let you people decide. But I will tell you that this does mess with your bryar blaster effects. Whenever I shot or charged the blaster pistol I got a purple square around the shot. ~Zach




New Sabers | 165.03 KB

liked it. The one I tried was the Curvy Sabers pk3, which makes your saber into a '8' shape. While the blade itself didn't look to great, the thing that made me like it was the saber trail. Looked like a saw blade, and I thought it was cool. :cool: There are several saber blades to choose from, so take your pic and enjoy. A nice little pack. I just wish there was more variation in it. ~Zach




Dual Sabers <-> Staff script | 1.93 KB

staff saber. It doesn\'t even cover the single saber! If you\'re going to have a saber change script, then have it cover all of the sabers! So anyways, this is only for single player, so that\'s just something that you should know. It\'s not that hard to make saber scripts, so I think that if you really wanted one, you could make your own. But for you lazy singleplayer people who just randomly want a script that lets them switch between dual sabers and the saber staff, then this is for you. ~Zach




Darth Revan vs. Darth Malak Duel Music | 1.26 MB

readme file and who the song was composed by, or what film you'd associate it with, I guarantee many of you would immediately guess at Star Wars....or possibly the Matrix Reloaded. Anyway, the author says he 'loves' the music of Knights of the old Republic (the game from which this music was taken.) I, after hearing this song, have decided that I do not love the music. I do think it's a fairly decent duel piece though. It just seems to lack the upbeat tempo that I'd want to use when fighting someone - it's more like invasion - "OMG the imperials are invading lets run away" as opposed to "Let's kick some ass." Still, as I have said on multiple occasions, anything beats the default music. ;) ~Szico VII~




Realistic Sabers | 304.5 KB

much more realistic - or rather, more like in the movies. So the core is white, there's less color and the only color comes from the glow. The saber itself is also a bit slimmer. So if you're interested in a saber mod that doesn't change the saber too much, this might be one for you to try.[/quote] To be honest, I personally have lost interest in downloading other people's attempts at making the perfect saber. Different people prefer different things. Some want it to be thin with a round tip, some want it to be wide at base and pointy at top, some want to to be the same width at the bottom all the way up to to top. Some want no core, some want the core to a different color from the glow, etc, etc, etc. Don't get me wrong - these sabers are good (WAY better than default, and an improvement over the previous version), but are they "realistic"? Meh... I'll let you guys be the judge of that. I do like to see the extra step taken by the author to put in new sounds and a new saber trail, but the sounds are loud, and annoying, and the trail is... "ok". The trail and sounds are in separate .pk3s so if I don't want to use them you don't have to ;). [u]Bottom Line[/u] If you hate the default sabers, and don't like the ones other people have made until now (or wanted an update of the previous version), try this, see if you like it. ~ Innocent Hawk NOTE: The author's new name is "Pane", not "masterobitu" as will be listed above. Due to some unknown errors, I was unable to add his new name.

WB Academy - Fists of Fury | 3.02 MB

as in melee, instead you get fists like sabers - but without the saber! Quantum Surge was my personal favorite, the dual stance gives you two glowing hands that if you perform a special with, spin round just like the sabers would, but instead appear as balls of fire/lightning, looks very cool! Another cool thing is as you run around, your flaming/burning, whatever, fists leave trails behind them, most noticable were the acid hands that leave a green and black trail. Unfortunately as the readme says, this mod still relies heavily on the standard saber animations, so unless you use dual stance, you\'ll get some pretty weird affects! Performing a single heavy stance attack with glowing hands looks rather odd! However, the vast number of new effects and sounds greatly outweight that little problem and it\'s a great alternative to sabers. It\'s like playing Mortal Kombat mixed with a bit of Dungeons and Dragons or some other strange combination. What I would suggest is remove the saber marks from the floors/walls in the next version, and remove the sounds, all of this can be done using the .sab files thanks to the 1.01 patch. Oh Luke, Tavion, Kyle and the Imperial officer will all use the new stuff as well which makes it far more interesting! Almost forgot this too! Lightning has been replaced with Force Flame or something like that, new sound effects for that too - but they\'re quite irritating admittedly, too repetative in a droning fashion. -WadeV1589-




PS3 TFU HUD | 52.84 KB

spilling my guts on that. I only noticed two things off about this hud: - Shield is rather difficult to spot - The ammo counter seems rather alienated all alone in the corner. The shield is fine, but methinks the ammo counter could have been added to the HUD bar somewhere as well. Don't get me wrong, the numbering looks fine, but having those numbers float there randomly seems rather...obstructive? Yeah, that sounds about right. Other than that, can't go wrong with this HUD if you don't use guns much, since the counter disappears in saber mode. You know what to do. - Averus Retruthan




The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition - Lightsaber Blades

tfuuse_blades.rar | 1.21 MB

blades look like in The Force Unleashed? Well I have no idea since I have not played it yet! I'm still waiting for it to come out on the PC, not long left now! :D These blades are obviously meant to resemble the saber blades from TFU however. From what I can tell, the only major change since the last version is that the tips of the saber blades are now more rounded instead of being pointy like in the previous version. The famous black and white lightsaber blade also returns in this mod. How a black blade can emit a white aura is beyond both me, and the laws of physics. But hey it looks cool and it is Star Wars! ;) The only problem with the black and white saber is that it replaces the orange saber, so if your favourite saber colour is orange, you might be disappointed. As for improvements I think the main things that need some more work are the tips of the blades because if you look closely you will notice that it looks like the very end of the blade has been clipped off, leaving a straight line right at the tip. This looks a bit odd close up, but should be too much of an issue generally speaking, but its always good to hunt down and fix those bugs! I'm glad to see more The Force Unleashed mod's here and I hope to see more in the future (although I would definitely like to see some TFU themed maps!) but I do think this mod needs some more work to polish it up. ~Nozyspy~




TFU Push V2 | 8.34 MB

command This mod pleases Authuran. As a fan of The Force Unleashed, I have been wishing someone would make the push from it into our beloved game. And we have it. Not a perfect replica, I will admit. The push from the game sent out some crazy purple and blue thing from it. Yes, thing. I can't think of any other word to describe it. Anyways, this mod is great for people who love to use the force, people who love to spawn NPCs, and people who just love seeing other people fly away at incredible speeds! This mod certainly pleases Authuran. Not before have we got a super-push-new-effect-new-animation mod that can live up to this one. Certainly a high quality replication from the game, and from what I could find, only one bug. In singeplayer, if you try a melee move, if you end up picking up the person and throwing them, the NPC will fly at incredible speed, even if you don't use push on them. But if you make a version 3, it would be fantastic, especially if it didn't modify melee combat, and if you could make that crazy purple and blue thing that flies out of his hands when he pushes someone. I have no clue if that is possible as I am not an effect maker, but if it is, it would be nice. I recommend this mod, certainly no typical waste of hard drive. Enjoy. ~Authuran




Cooler Lightning Stance | 8.35 MB

(i.e. when you are using melee fists) you bend forward more and push your palms out and your hands will quiver as the raw power of the force shoots from your fingertips! [i]The whole effect looks like it actually requires a lot of effort[/i], as you would expect shooting lightning from your fingers would take. The stance overall looks much more like the one from The Force Unleashed, which makes sense really since the whole idea of The Force Unleashed was to make force powers seem much more visceral and powerful. Overall a small but cool little mod here, definitely one for you Force Unleashed fans out there and anyone else looking to spruce up their force power animations a bit! ;) ~Nozyspy~




+11 Trainer | 2.13 KB

with the console won't find any use for it. Basically, this mod binds a bunch of cheats/NPC spawns to several keys on your keyboard. This is something I did ages ago for debugging maps, so like I said, I don't have a use for it. I was somewhat amused by the chat-spam bind...quite childish. The other thing is that when you run the 'uninstall' script to remove the binds, it does not replace the original binds you had. I'm pretty sure this is possible through a little's not a big problem, but it's one of those things that makes people a lot more likely to use your binds. Bottom line, if you like the way this mod binds keys, download it. ~Dretzel




Fire Hud | 418.01 KB

the colours of the HUD to a fiery colour palette of reds, oranges and yellows and in each corner of the HUD is a small flame. Personally I think this is a pretty cool looking HUD, although I think it would be good if the health, shield and ammo bars etc. could be made to look like fire, molten lava or metal, or maybe some hot coals or something, rather than just being re-coloured. Overall though, I like the idea, but I would like to see it expanded upon more for next time. Keep up the good work mate! :) ~Nozyspy~

Order Of The Jedi -- Yoda Demo | 80.11 MB

Featuring several new features in 2 new levels based from the movies. Play as Jedi Master Yoda and save your fellow Jedi Allies against the evil Count Dooku. Find the password and unlock it on the Password menu, to unlock a secret level.[/quote] Like it says, you play as Jedi Master Yoda and you fight Count Dooku to save your Jedi Allies (Obi-Wan and Anakin) When you begin the mission 'An Old Friend' it starts off with a 2-3 second movie of a republic gunship flying through geonosis. I had only two dislikes about this: 1) There was no sound. (2) It was a very low quality movie. But, it was only 2-3 seconds and so it doesn't matter too much. You then run through the landing platform and hear one of the two jedi dying. Count Dooku is there standing and you fight one another. After you kill him a short movie plays of him running into his ship. Then, you see him die on the floor in front of you (o_O) I then didn't know what to do. I started looking around trying to find out what happens next. I still had no luck and so I ran back to where I started from and saw a clone trooper and a republic gunship outside the platform. When you approach the clone trooper he tells you the password for the next level. I won't say what happens in the next level, as it is a secret :) I don't know what happens after you complete the secret level because I died every time. Also, there is a BLOCK command you can do with the saber, which seems to work.. sort of. You can parry their attacks by holding the BLOCK button and moving into the direction of their attack. It didn't work too well for me with Yoda, likely because of his height :P Cheats also seem to be disabled in the last level ( :( ) So, if you are interested in this modification or just want to recreate the battle of Episode II, give it a download! - Dommie

detail =_,= To begin, this is naturally an administration mod, definitely most powerful and most malevolent. [b]Here are some features you can do as a player:[/b] - Jetpack: Pretty basic stuff. Can be rid of as well - Every admin function you could do in JA+, minus telemark (that will most likely mean something to JA+ users..) - Grapple: While you won't be able to swing around and keep hung around like you could in JA+, I will say that this version of Grapple could be comparable to a Spiderman webslinging type of grapple. T'was quite fun to shoot across the map in such grace. - Multiple and pretty nice emotes - Drop your weapons(huzzah =_=) - Engage in four types of duels: Force Duel, Melee Duel (200 HP/fists), training duel(the only duel you can choose to end), and the regular old duel. - Change your chat color with /chatcolor /ignore people and more =_=! [b]Admins will get to do this:[/b] - Teleport - Slay - My favorite, Insult Silence: =_,= instead of being silenced, one gets to insult themselves, in whatever manner the server pre-defines. - Adding weather effects, map objects, and visual effects to the map in real time. and quite a lot more =_= Hopefully that list will have whetted your appetite slightly. If not, the roar clan has an online wiki manual that can be reached in the tools section of the clanmod folder. Overall, this mod is not one to be passed up. It has so much one could do, and there's virtually no competition between this and JA+. I would say that this mod will undoubtedly become a hit, should anyone choose to make the change. The power is nothing short of malevolent, and honestly, if my rambling hasn't convinced you, perhaps the screenshots will. SUBMIT BANDWIDTH IMMEDIATELY! =_= *destroys planets* - Averus Retruthan

Health is also in the normal place, with the counter in the bottom right. One slight inconsistency is that the health bars won\'t change color as your health drops. Your Force counter is on the left, in the middle, and the ammunition counter is opposite it on the right. The rest of the HUD is aesthetic. Definitely a great recreation of the RC HUD. Fans should pick it up right away. ~Inyri

Electric Saber Mod | 227.31 KB

portrayed as blue, so green lightning effects would look a bit wierd. And as for purple? Ha. Ha ha. So this mod works exactly as advertised. It adds an electric look to the blade itself, and a very cool electricity-ish motion blur. As simple as this mod was created, it turned out really [i]really[/i] nifty. Just take a look at the screenshots. In fact as I was testing it I could only come up with two complaints. (1) the saber core is not shaped on the bottom, so it can be seen at some points to have a hard line at the bottom outside of the hilt, and (2) it could really use some crackly electric sound effects. Other than that, though, this is a perfect mod for what it\'s trying to do. ~Inyri




JKA Graphic Patch | 302.17 KB

portray dream sequences as bright and kind of blurry? That\'s kind of what this mod does, but only to Bespin-themed maps. In the words of the author, \"I\'m bored of dumb textures.\" I hate to break it to him, but he has not changed the texture at all, so they\'re just as \"dumb\" as before. I\'m not quite certain why he thinks they\'re dumb, though, but I don\'t think adding a glow is really a good way to enhance game play. Personally I think it looks a little unnatural, and definitely makes everything look blurry. It actually started to hurt my eyes after a while. However there are always those of you who like anything shiny or glowy, so for those people this mod\'ll probably be a good thing. Give it a download if you\'re into glowyness. ~Inyri

Almost Perfect Ep3 blades | 107.96 KB

I'm not sure which one the author was going for, but it doesn't look much like either. The first screenshot you see here is the original JKA blade, the second is SithLordSopan's. Image Google for "Star Wars EP III" and you'll see the difference between all of them. What I DO like about this, is that it looks more "solid". You can kind of see through the default JKA. It is a change from the old blades.... but personally, I don't notice much what my saber looks like. -Red




Dark Forces II Cinematic Saber Blades | 894.11 KB

lightsabers that were already in the game. As such, the blades don\'t look much changed to me, but if you can pick out the alterations more power to you. Now what would be [i]interesting[/i] to see is Dark Forces 2 [i]gameplay[/i] blades. I can\'t imagine anyone who would want to use those, but it might be funny all the same. In any case, if you do like these blades better than the original go ahead and download them. I don\'t see anything that would make them hideously unplayable, since they\'re so close to the default blades. ~Inyri




The Sith Lords Startup Screen | 13.93 MB

very fitting to the image of the launcher, is what takes up most of the space in this file. Over 14 megabytes for a clip that's just under a minute and a half in length... how does that work? Decreasing the size of that clip would work wonders. If you're into Knights of the Old Republic, or are just looking to spice up your launcher, give it a download. However keep in mind that this overwrites your old launcher, so to get the original back you will have to recopy it from your Jedi Academy game disc. ~Inyri




Flame Saber Mod | 323.61 KB

sabers may seem brighter to you at first glance, but really they\'re not. All that\'s been changed is the shape to make the saber appear as if it\'s made of fire. Does the author execute this well? Meh. It has a jagged edge. I wasn\'t all that impressed with the trail. Just another fire saber mod that doesn\'t remind me of fire at all. Good try, though. ~AmosMagee




Final Fantasy VII Advent Children Weapons | 4.84 MB

first I was skeptical as to how accurate or detailed a mod like this could be could be. Boy was I wrong. Each and every weapon is finely crafted as accuratly as the author could, using only a teaser trailer as source material! The short of it is this, Final Fantasy 7 was a groundbreaker in '97. Now, this next year, Squaresoft is releasing a sequel movie to the game that they are calling Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children. Currently only teatrical trailers exist, which is where the author got the screenshots and designs from. Lets review the lineup shall we? Here is a weapon that has been done over enough times to make me sick: the Buster Sword. In fact, I am sure that it has been done over in every game to use any sort of melee weapon of any kind. With each revision the author would forget the shine, not put the holes in the blade, forget one small detail or another. This revision has nothing wrong with it whatsoever. He even fine-tuned the wrap on the handle of the sword. Second we have Vincent's Alastor. Vincet was a rather dark, somewhat vampiric charachter in the original Final Fantasy 7, who weilded a wide variety of pistols. Given, the weapon does seem to fit Vincent's personality, even more so with the crackling lightning, but I do not know why the author protrayed it as a veapon of this particular charachter. Perhaps he has inside information on FF7:AC than the public does not? ;) The 4-Point Shuriken was the choice weapon of Yuffie, a ninja/thief. My only dispuite with it is that when throw, it spins on its axis instead of normally like a throwing star. The Masamune. The weapon of Sephiroth. Most likely, the most legendary and well-known bad guy in video game history. The Masamune can be weilded normally, using all three styles, or backwards. When weilded backwards, the game reverts to staff animations and movements. Now we hit three weapons that I am shady on. First we have the The Double Sword, a twin-bladed katana that can also be weilded backwards. The Velvet Nightmare is interesting, its a combonation of a small cutlass and a pistol, even though it does not fire with this mod. Though that would be something nive to see in later revisions. The Dual Hound also eludes me. It seemd to be a close-quarters melee weapon that does kinetic damage on impact. The author has cleverly adjusted the hit animation so that the each hit looks like a repeater grenade detonating. Finally, there is Cid's weapon, the Spear. This weapon isn't fancy, but its accurate, and a solid hitter. Much like Cid himself. Another small thing I noticed is the skin used to demonstrate in each screenshot. This skin, though just a reborn model, is also a charachter hinted to in the FF7:AC video. I would like to se it released as well as a full weapons modification pack later on. Hell, you could get away with making a full-blown mod out of this! Great Job! New Sounds: Yes New Models: Yes New Textures: Yes New Animations: No Known Bugs: None -Sared

Flame Sabers v2 | 1.85 MB

mean, what\'s better than cutting someone up with a saber of light? A saber of fire, of course! And the good news is, it comes in seperate .pk3s, so if you like the hilts and the blades but not the sounds, you can just remove the sounds pk3! That\'s always a bonus. The sabers look nice like fire and with a new glow, but I noticed that green, orange, and yellow were all produced the same color when chosen- green, and blue and purple both produced a blue saber. But the colors still had their own color trail. Odd. The soundswere great, sounding like the fire from the game. The hilts were the one thing I didn\'t like. They didn\'t look like they were glowing, they just looked solid red. Good work on the sabers, and I hope there comes a version 2 with all the colors! -Shahadi[/quote] I must say, I like these sabers a lot. The new sounds accompanying the sleek flame-ish look of the blade makes for a good package. There are every color of sabers this time, so that\'s a definate plus. The blades also look much better and have a new saber trail. Once again, the hilts, blades, and sounds come in seperate pk3s, so if you don\'t like something but like another thing, you\'re ok! Good job! -Shahadi

Bobo\'s Jedi Trainer | 2.01 MB

explain in his own words: [quote]This is not a ladder. This is my Merry-Go-round Style Trainer. Designed to be hard, not excessively so, for intermediate to experienced players mainly. Originally this map was a ladder, but that was really annoying. So I made kind of a Round-Robin thing. This latest incarnation (and the first one I\'ve submitted) features two Jedi at a time. They start one a hard level and one an easy. When you kill the easy one a harder one spawns. When you kill the hard one an easier one respawns. And they up and down like that. You could call it a ladder, but I prefer something along the lines of a Merry-Go-Round. This map was designed not to help newbies get better, but to hone the skills of intermediate to advanced players. (This is not to say that newbie shouldn\'t play it, just that they might get frustrated at first.)[/quote] I played this for at least an hour and never survived long enough to know if there\'s an end to the NPCs, lol. As I\'m not the most skilled duelist, especially in JA, I\'m probably the n00b Bobo was talking about. ;) The only thing I would change about this is maybe get more of a variety in the enemies you battle (at least model/skin-wise) and add a briefing at the load screen with some information and hints. Technical Data: Pros: 1. Good solid dueling. 2. The Reborn Acrobat, Fencer, and Force-User skins from JK2 have been ported for use in this mod. Cons: 1. None, except a seemingly infinite supply of minions attempting to wreak havoc on my body. Rating: 8/10 JEDIofONE :mepimp:




Saber Menu (Revised) | 5.1 KB

you got a saber from the very beginning of the Single Player game. Raven tried to appease us by giving us a saber in the beginning of the game in JA, but once again, it wasn\'t enough! They teased us with the promise of a staff saber or dual sabers later in the game. RED SITH deals with our complaints of not having those options from the beginning with a mod that allows you to choose what saber you want from the very beginning. So if you\'re frustrated with having to just use the single saber for the first half of the game, download this mod and play Single Player through with the saber of your choice! Personally, I prefer using single saber anyway. To each his own! [/quote] This update has been made to address a few issues from the first release, from the readme the fixed bugs are as follows: Selectable Saber Types & Styles appear on screenDesired hilt & style are still usable after the \"Vjun3\" missionPlayers can continue game play by selecting the \"Continue\" button in the bottom right corner (after completing Vjun3). In the end I agree with Amos however, I am a single saber user, I sometimes use a staff but in the end I love single saber! It\'s one of those things :) -WadeV1589-

Tiri's Hilt Pack | 340.93 KB

longer than a normal saber. I had fun slashing up bots with this however, in a real fight it wouldn’t really be god. The next saber was called cross. It’s a….cross. This isn’t really anything new, as I’ve seen quad sabers (or even more blades then that) before, and the hilt doesn’t even have a part for the two extra ones, so I don’t think this ones that good. The last saber in this pack is by far the best however. It’s a double blade, with three blades coming from each end (see pics). I really like the hilt on the saber (a wooden staff with metal parts, kind of medievalish) Altogether this is a pretty nice pack. If you’re someone who likes a lot of sabers this is for you. If not, well, take it or leave it. Keep up the good work, I liked these sabers a lot. 8/10 ~DeathBringer




New Weapon Effects and Swoops | 618.86 KB

green and pink together like this - if this were clothes you'd have a mild fashion crisis. disruptor_rifle.pk3 - This one I like, it replaces the zoom on the disruptor as well as the blast effects, the rotating inner red symbols looks very nice and the blast is green and big, I do like this one. sonic_charge_launcher.pk3 - A replacement for the rocket launcher missiles. The rocket now has a blue tint and when it explodes releases a mini shock wave. The sound is ear piercing though so if you fire a rocket, be sure to run away before you hear it! swoops.pk3 - Adds 3 identicals swoops with 3 similar weapons. The swoops are the black ones I'm sure you've all seen before, the weapons are blaster effects that can be seen below. The advantage of separate PK3's is you only keep what you like and for me it would be the disruptor rifle. -WadeV1589-




Melee Mod | 5.78 MB

thud...thump...thud...thu... An evil smirk peers out from under glistening eyes reflecting a shiny blade dripping thick purplish-red blood. "You are weak!" After several expletives, I hit the "ctrl" button and reload the level. Almost done, and some sith goes Ginsu on me. For those of you who have been with us since the beginning, you remember all the various ladder mods we've seen. The "original" ladder mod, House of Madness, The Dragon Remix, The Emperor's Courthouse, The Emperor's DeathStar, The Challenge in Jedi Valley, and the The Xmas Story. Now comes Jedi Academy's first ladder mod, but totally forget everything you know about ladder mods. Because this is more than just fighting enemies who get harder and more numerous. Slice, Dice, & Mince have given us over 30 different melee weapons to choose from. Not only that, but this mod is MP compatible also. Although they may have re-used the original ladder mod map, the battle now rages with swords, maces, axes, scythes, and several more lethal hand-to-hand weapons. Instead of rambling on and on about what is included, I'll simply list them in the "pros" section. Disclaimer: This mod is not for the faint of heart, slow, n00b, or anyone who can't stand the sight of blood. You live fast, and die faster. Also, you need the patch to play this. Furthermore, make sure you unzip it to your \\GameData\ folder. This is by far the most impressive submission I've seen in all my time at I hope to see much more from these guys. :D Technical Data: Pros: 1. A plethora of new weapons, including the ability to fight with your hands and feet (melee) enabled. 2. New NPCs. 3. New graphics/textures. 4. New sounds. 5. Blood, blood, and more BLOOD!!! MUWHAHAHAHA!!! And gore! 6. Quick-start MS-DOS batch files (.bat) that allow instant access to SP and MP with various settings (See readme.). 7. Bind configuration files that can be executed to enable quicker access to commands. 8. Much more!!! Cons: 1. Some of the weapons in the .pk3 aren't available, and most aren't skinned. (Watch for an update.) 2. Your player responds weird when you die (doesn't dismember, but plays the dismember animation sequences, so you pretzel.) Rating: 10/10 JEDIofONE :mepimp:

FlufMod Patch 0.9.5-0.9.6 | 2.44 MB

is pretty minor, but even so, yay for bug fixes. Here's what was fixed: [quote]- SP: Force Power Menu / Weapon Select / Bonus Style Selection Glitch: this was causing an issue when trying to select force powers and weapon selections when the user increased their saber offense. I have reworked the sequence which now forces the Bonus Style Selection to occur immediately after Force Power Selection. -SP: Mission Video Glitch: repaired the issue where Luke or Kyle start speaking immediately after a mission is complete. Now the Mission Complete screen pops up and they only start speaking once OKAY is pressed.[/quote] Considering the 1000+ downloads on the last release, this should make a fair amount of people happy. Go forth and enjoy. One note: you will need 0.9.5 installed prior to installing this. This package contains only the update; the actual mod is not included in here. -Caelum

Other than that, supposed to look like your standard TFU black saber. There y\'go. Beep. - Averus Retruthan




Ultimate Weapons | 4.41 KB

ammo (as they would run out in a nanosecond otherwise, I wasn't joking when I said rapid fire insanity. :P) The blaster bolts from the E-11 no longer come out as bolts but effectively look like one long stream of glowing red death. Bear in mind that this doesn't work in MP, only SP. Rapid fire like this in MP would be a ridiculously unfair advantage, but in SP it provides for some most amusing battles as you slice down a gaggle of Stormtroopers with your super rapid fire E-11 or Bryar Pistol! As for improvements, well other than perhaps toning down the fire rate of things like det packs and trip mines I cant really think of any. BE aware though that if you fire too many projectiles at once the game may crash (after all JKA wasn't designed to handle the firing of twenty billion rockets within ten seconds! ;)). All in all a fun little mod here to spice up your SP games. Give it a download if you like the sound of it! ~Nozyspy~




Star Wars Stances Animated Version 4 | 8.23 MB

version is more of a tweak than anything else. The jump animation, if I recall correctly was carried over from the previous version. The idle stance, melee stance and the three single saber stances have all been modified. I find them overall to be a little stiff, and the idle stance's motions are too computerized...they aren't smooth. It's a linear motion. Really should fix that, linear does not become people, only robots. I didn't get to see the melee stance, though. One other thing that really should be improved is the torso and legs. During most of the animations, they don't do much moving at all. It'd be nice to see the character loosen up a bit and breathe easier. ;) If you want to try some new animations, you know what to do with this. Otherwise, keep your eye out for the next version (or try a previous one). ~Dretzel




Sniper Scope | 365.7 KB

you know, the default scope design is creative, but after playing for years, it has become very "unoriginal." The author decided to change that by re-designing it! One of the major changes is the background design of the scope that stretches around the screen. Unlike the default design, the author re-colored it to a solid black with what looks like a faded touch, especially around the edge. The scope lines were also made a blackish color and the "charge meter" has been re-colored with a blueish tone. There is not much else to say about this disruptor scope, except that I would of liked to see more changes added. The black background seems kind of plain. I would recommend adding in some sort of design into the background so it has more creativity with it. That is just my own personal opinion though. Overall, this isn't a bad mod. As I mentioned above, it does need some work. I hope that the author decides to expand from his original idea and make it even better in the near future. Nevertheless, keep up the good work and never give up. This is definitely worth a download if you're tired of using the default disruptor scope. :) [b]New Design:[/b] Aye [b]New Sounds:[/b] Nay (Maybe in a V2?) ~Syyrax




TFU Black Saber

tfu_black_saber_v2.rar | 250.54 KB

However, problems arose due to its large amount of bugs. Infact, so many bugs for a saber mod that Spior called the File Exterminator to get rid of most of the bugs for v2. However, you know how labor is these days, and unfortunately, a lot of the bugs are still here, such as a wall bug and a water bug. No, I don't mean those little spiders you see hopping across the water. Graphical difficulty is a better term for it. Spior, before you release a v3, make sure you exterminate ALL the bugs. Enjoy or submit your bandwidth. Your choice. ~Authuran

Small Animation Fix | 8.24 MB

patch and many things needed to be fixed still. Some were never fixed untill this day, but some were, with the help of modders that keep this game alive. The same goes for this file. What we have here, is an animation fix for jetpack and melee in our beloved game. If anyone ever tried using give all on multiplayer server with enabled cheats, he'd notice that no matter which direction you fly in with your jetpack, the body still acts like a stiff wooden idol while in single player we could clearly see Boba Fett maneuvering with his body as he was flying. Ever wanted that? Well, now you get it thanks to this animation fix mod. Other thing it fixes is the quite weird and unrealistic looking melee stance, so no more retarded look while using your Kung Fu skills. In addition to that, it also works in JA+, so not only basejka players will be able to have fun with it - SCORE. Anyone who likes fixes for JK3 should grab this, quite recommended download this is, so waste some of your bandwidth and enjoy much nicer jetpack animations and fixed melee. -Schrödinger




Sith Academy Mod | 818.59 KB

Player side of JKA. Basically this mod changes all the Jedi and light side characters into Imperials and Dark Jedi, and all the Dark Jedi and Imperial characters into Mercenaries and Rebel soldiers! A list of changes is included in the readme, along with a general description of the story behind the changes: [quote] Just Imagine: Desann fricking PWNd Kyle on Yavin, gained more strength and killed Luke Skywalker afterwards. He overtook the Academy, and at the moment he is training Siths in the Academy, not regarding the Rule of Two. Tavion (wich overlived, due to JKII :) ) betrayed her master, and is about to resurrect Marka Ragnos, to destroy her old master. A few of Desanns old Reborn were switching sides. At all that, you are coming to the Academy, in the Hope of becoming a Sith.[/quote] Along with the character changes, a red bladed lightsaber is now also available from the beginning of the game, so you can play as more of a Dark Jedi character, in keeping with the rest of the mod. I think this is a pretty cool idea, but I also think it really needs expanding into more of a total conversion mod, as just switching the characters around doesn’t quite give this idea the depth and scope that it needs. Nevertheless, keep up the good work, and I hope you decide to expand this mod further! :) If you guys like the look of this mod, be sure to give it a download! ~Nozyspy~




Star Wars Movie Duels 2 - Demo | 94.15 MB

and coming in Movie Duels 2.0. Obviously, it will be quite limited, but I think it's a good teaser of the mod to come. The main feature of this demo is Palpatine's Arrest, the duel between Mace Windu and Palpatine. You can play as either Mace Windu or Chancellor Palpatine. Many of the saber moves have been changed. I was able to quickly adapt to the new setup...perhaps it is similar to the setup in JO? In any case, I think the attacks were [i]much[/i] better than the base JA ones - less delicate swinging, and a lot more hard hits and pokes. I haven't seen Episode III in a long time, so I can't really say anything about how accurate (or inaccurate) the map may be, but it looks very nice to me, and it's the perfect size for a duel. I can't say much for the character models for the same reason, but again, they do the job well. I daresay the Palpatine model is spot on. There are cutscenes between the different stages of the duel as well. Here's one thing I think should be improved, if at all possible...the characters walk down the hallway just doing a simple overhead swing unless their sabers hit. Needs to be a little more...epic, methinks. Some minor choreography would be just the thing. The final cutscene of the duel is done pretty well for JA...again, I think it could be better, but it is good for Quake III. Palpatine is forced to the edge of the windowsill, and Anakin enters the room. After Palpatine is done blaming Windu for him zapping himself, you take control of Anakin, and you get to choose who dies. I very happily killed Palpatine. Twice. I had to suck it up for the third time just so I could see what happened when I killed Windu instead... XD And I wasn't disappointed in what followed. After you've played Palpatine's Arrest once, there's still a little surprise for you! A make believe scenario has been created where Anakin chooses to fight Palpatine after he has revealed his sith identity. Palpatine pulls out his saber and the two have it out. Once you've run his health down, another cutscene plays...Palpatine pulls a little something out of somewhere. It makes sense that he'd have one hidden in his office, when you think about it. Great twist, I enjoyed it much. So, what are you waiting for? Get it downloading! I'm not a fan of SP mods, but I'll have to keep an eye on this one for sure. ~Dretzel




km_backhand_beta05 | 8.17 MB

saber stances so that if you are using a backhand saber, the blade will be behind your back. There are some other changes as well. All three types of sabers are affected, each with a slightly different stance. As I seem to say every single time, the screenshots tell it all. This is only a beta so far - the author is asking for input on the full version. My suggestion is that the 'staff' stance is a little stiff looking, and should look a little more relaxed. Guess I didn't hit the 10 page goal to keep y'all waiting, but if you want to have your backhand saber behind your back where it belongs, here you go! ~Dretzel




Secret Apprentice Saber Stance

jacobstance.rar | 7.88 MB

mod working on the Red stance, it acutely is put on to the Staff instead. And even then both blades have to be going for it to even work. Another thing i noticed is the hand isn't closing all the way around the staff, so he's just kinda holding it open handed. The only other things i noticed was the pk3 eather has to be placed in the Base folder, or for me it had to go in to the JA+ folder. Other then the glitch with the hand and the mod working on the staff this mod is still a nice addition to your game play. ~T89T




OJP Basic Unlimited | 1.22 MB

folder. - Sabers Last I checked, there were no visible limits on how many sabers you could actually have, but I guess I may have been wrong or I simply never had that many sabers. Even if you were under the limits, though, only twenty or so appeared on the list and the console was necessary for the others. With JA Unlimited, virtually all sabers will appear on the menu (obviously it's not really unlimited, but it may as well be) and there ceiling limit on how many you can have has been turned into the roof limit - 'tis much higher. Higher than I was able to reach with every lightsaber, sword, baseball bat, axe, halberd, polearm, voulge and God-only-knows-what-else I could procure from JKFiles. Since saber switching via /saber only appears to work in JA+, this is great for anyone not using these mods, since you no longer need to know the .sab designations to load your sabers. - Maps Again, you can usually have as many maps as you'll need, but now they'll all show on the menu so that you don't need to open pk3s in Pakscape/PakRat (shout-out for you Maccies out there ;) ), find the bsp name and use /devmap to load your maps. Great improvement in my book, helpful for those who don't check map pk3s by default, or don't know how to. - NPCs Now, this one you did have a limit on, and that limit is basically kaput. You can now have as many NPCs as you'll need - again, I'm figuring 65535 being the ceiling limit, but you'll probably never reach that many - without that pesky ".npc extensions are too large!" error in multiplayer. Score one for no annoyances! - Vehicles Oh yeah. Now we're talkin'. If you're like me and enjoy going to town with some serious vehicular manslaughter, again, this is the mod for you. No more .veh extensions errors, and the error with .vwp files (which were still at factory limits in the last release) is now fixed, so you can have as much firepower as you need in the base folder. - Models / Skins Considering the game can hold as many models/skins as you can use, I always found it kinda dopey that there was a limit on the amount of icons, but that limit is now gone. - Species Selections The limit was previously 32. Now, it's... what is it again? 65535 or something like that? Ain't that quite a resume? [b]Disclaimers[/b] ► This will [b]not[/b] work in the singleplayer game - source code for the SP DLLs was never released. Strictly MP only, sorry folks. ► Naturally, SP won't work at all if you're over any limits, so basically, my advice: don't put mods in base, make a seperate mod folder for this and dump your files in there, then launch this mod via .bat file. That way you can have as much as you need in MP, without shafting SP. ► Limits are there for reasons, as Kat Angel quite rightly states in the readme. Even though this mod means the game won't object to extreme amounts of mods, please try and factor in how much the iD Tech 3 engine can handle, and how much your computer can handle. If you have too much in your base folder, your game will take ages to load. The more you have, the slower it gets. The less RAM your computer has, the slower load times pass. The slower your CPU, the slower load times will be. You also risk your computer randomly shutting down, restarting, or random crashes by having more than the computer can handle. So, basically, if you never use it, don't keep it, 'cuz the more you got the more strain your system takes. Please note that since this is the OJP Basic version, installation instructions differ somewhat to the baseJA version. At Kat Angel's request, the install instructions will be added into the review. [b]-Installation Instructions-[/b] Easy! Simply open up the zip file and dump z_ja_unlimited.pk3 into your ***ojpbasic*** folder (not base), and optionally include thumbnailshrink.pk3 or thumbnailshrink_more.pk3 with it (These can go in the base folder if you'd like to use them outside of OJP.) If you place the file in your base folder, it WILL NOT WORK with OJP, and may cause base JKA to behave strangely. (Most likely, that means "to crash".) Then start up JA, and you're done! [b]-End Installation Instructions-[/b] Right, safety warnings and summaries out of the way, I think we're done here. Overall, great mod for you "pakrats" (no pun intended). If you play OJP Basic and like to use a lot of add-ons, this is a sure-fire winner. ~ Kouen

done about that though, I\'m sure, well, and keep the integrity of the saber. What I mean is, without making it all unfair and stuff, y\'know? Aren\'t there already a few mods out there of Ragnos\' Scepter? Oh well, here\'s another. ~AmosMagee

clonewarsnpcs | 1.18 MB

[file=\"53471\"]Clones Ultima[/file]. The NPC\'s are pretty simple, all following the same basic format with very little to no boosting of stats. You will need the original files to use these NPCs, so check the read-me if you\'re missing any of them. ~Inyri




Halo 3 Shield | 67.82 KB

Master Chief apparently uses a shield grenade. The author would like to make it clear that this is a shield change only and does not affect or add any weapons to the game. A simple mod, to be sure, but likely a popular one with those awaiting the release of Halo 3. ~Inyri




Original Saber Sounds Pack | 79.55 KB

do come from the movie.The sounds are high enough quality, and I didn\'t catch any deterring factors. How can one say anymore about this pack? They sound like every other pack I\'ve come across, so if you intend to get this one, now is the time to offer your bandwidth up and giggle like a little girl. Upon which time, I shall promptly answer your download request with an upload of scythe blade to your skull, in which you will then scream in pain and I shall dance about in a fashion that desert nomads do. - Averus Retruthan




Luke Single Player Mod | 1.68 MB

single-player, and also includes a version with only one glove (called the "Return of the Jedi" version). This mod will also make Luke's lightsaber a selectable option in the saber menu. Since version one, the author has also replaced Luke's character in the single-player storyline. It seemed kind of odd to him to have Luke talking to Luke, so Luke has been replaced with the author's favorite Jaden combination (the most "robe" looking torso/legs, plus the brown haired head). All the details seem to be ironed out, except of course the ones that really can't be, like the voice overs, but for a single-player Luke mod this seems as complete as any. Definitely give it a look-see if you're a Luke fan and want to see him beating up Tavion. ~Inyri




Darth Evasto\'s Lightsaber | 215.18 KB

unless I\'m missing some tiny difference. The model itself is good for a first hilt model. It\'s very simple, as the author stated in the read-me, which I personally prefer. However the big downfall of this hilt: no shader. The texturing of this model lets down what otherwise is a very decent model. A shader would somewhat cover this up, however the author has claimed to not have the proper software to make the shader nor access to the information to learn how to make it. I am going to challenge both of these statements. For one, no special software is required to make a shader. Notepad is sufficient, or any other similar program. Also, this very site has a very lovely [url=]forum[/url] where such information can be found (or asked for). What this hilt needs to be truly great is a better texture, which simply takes practice and a bit of critiquing (once again the forums are a great place to air out your mods before release and get tips), and it needs a good shiny shader to keep it from looking flat. Once again, though, a great start with the model, and the mod on a whole just needs a little attention and perhaps a friendly opinion or two to make it top-knotch. ~Inyri




SW Scope | 8.84 KB

tracking difficult, if not impossible. Then there was the issue of the rifle having no specific targetting crosshair, meaning veteran snipers had major advantages over those with a less \"covert ops\" style of play. This mod basically increases your viewing field when using the Disruptor scope to the full screen and adds a proper crosshair in the center. Perfect for snipers new and old alike, and I\'d advise everyone else who ever plays with guns to get it too so they\'re not at a disadvantage. ~ Kouen




New Frag Messages | 4.7 KB

template with which to make your own custom messages. One thing that I was kind of disappointed with was the the fact that this is only for people with english as their default language. Maybe you could change the french kill strings as well? :) Not a bad little mod. Download if you want a change of kill messages. ~Zach




DeathStroke | 195.12 KB

Tavion or Desann, you need only hit them once with strong stance. And why not use strong stance? It's been altered to be as fast as the fast stance normally is. Basically what this mod does is it takes advantage of all the things a saber file can do. The author has added a blade effect, which seems to be the Kothos recharge effect, and has tweaked all the stats, making what was once the Sith sword into something a little (haha, little...) more deadly. Unless some swords which try to be more realistic, this sword will not bounce on walls and objects. It does, however, have something of a blinding hit effect - I'm guessing from the sounds that play that this effect was designed for the AT-ST. However, as you should be able to see in the screenshots, this affect will take up the entire screen and will be rather bright. Personally I'm not much of a fan of these kinds of mods -- makes the game way too easy, and no self-respecting server admin would allow it on their server. However as a gag to use in single-player it might be fun. Just think how fast you can kill rosh... ;). ~Inyri




Stab Attack Mod | 159.74 KB

days just how much people whined about this... but anyway, if for some reason you\'ve never liked that lunge attack, or just want to try something different, this mod replaces the lunge animation with a nifty stab animation. I believe this is just another animation from the default gla, so you\'ve probably seen it before, but it still might be a nifty change. I might keep it around a bit just for fun. The only drawback here is how the author went about changing this animation. Instead of changing the animations.cfg, he went into the .sab files and changed the particular attack. However the problem therein is that this new stab will only work for default sabers, and not for custom sabers. Learning how to use animations.cfg would be a good idea in the future, however, for anyone trying to learn animation modding. ~Inyri




A Small Wish: Dark Force Mod | 1.04 MB

vision is, theoretically, a good mod. This is why this mod, which you could probably call sloppy if you academically take everything into consideration, is good. In my mind, it\'s not sloppy when I know that it is trying to accomplish a certain goal. Its goal, I think, was partly to raise the level of power of just about everything that you can do that causes damage in multiplayer, which is partly accomplished by bringing elements of the singleplayer game into the multiplayer environment. It\'s a combination of powerful weapons, powerful Force powers, and other small changes that make this mod. Version three of Henry Christianto\'s \"Dark Force Mod,\" which requires [file=\"20459\"]Jedi Academy Patch 1.01[/file], permanently modifies part of the general configuration of the game and adds new bots, swords, a(n) NPC, and a vehicle; also included are new animations, moves, and effects that may (or may not) enhance your experience. It can be installed in one of two ways: the readme tells you to just put it in the base folder, which would change baseJKA to the Dark Force Mod (thus not allowing you to join other servers that don\'t use it), but you can also go into your GameData folder, create a folder (call it \"DarkForce\" or whatever), and drop the PK3 in there; this would enable you to play without any drawbacks in other servers that do not use Dark Force Mod, and still be able to use it yourself by going into Setup and pressing \"Load Mod\" to load it up. The default kata for dual sabers has been changed so that while you are performing the kata, you are standing and therefore can move around. I have a strong dislike of katas myself, but I can still tell you that it\'s a logical, well-executed change. Two more dual katas have been added: while running forward, perform a kata and you will spin and throw both of your sabers at your target; while running backward, perform a kata and you will spin in a similar fashion, but you will not throw your sabers. These were apparently things that Alora did in the single player game. Another important modification for the kata involves all of your other katas using other sabers. Performing a kata using any other saber will again not glue you to the floor—you can move around—and you can jump and change the direction of your kata. This is almost always more logical than the default allowed, and although you can\'t fight conventionally anymore because of these changes, it serves the mod in that it directly has to do with creating a certain level of over-the-top chaos. Various new single sabers have been added—all of which may be used in the single player—many of them actually being metallic swords. \"A Small Wish\" and \"Du Shang Xi Lou\" are two such metallic swords, except that \"Lou\" is a scepter and \"Wish\" is a plain sword. I did not like how they both have a longer range than the visible model shows, but nevertheless these are two powerful swords. Strike someone and it will do a lot of damage and you will see a red electrical image where you hit them—some sort of spirit blood? When you hit the ground or any other part of the map with them, a large bang and an explosion of energy occurs that knocks back anyone within a fair radius; this seems to be how the final level of the single player was fighting the cowardly Tavion. \"Ni Zhe Me Shuo\" is a lightsaber with a double-length blade and double radius; it continues to spin on the way back from the saber throw, which seems dangerous because I would not want a spinning blade of death coming towards me. The \"Zheng Ming Ni Yi Qie\" is a staff saber that is actually chosen from the single saber menu so that you can throw it and use single blade kata moves. Throwing a saber staff isn\'t exactly high in safety from its elongated length, and the idea of single saber katas with a staff I feel is somewhat strange and could probably result in annoying clipping; however, this exaggeration of power is to be expected. One more saber exists that works only in singleplayer: the \"White Saber\" or \"Crayons\" (if it\'s called \'Crayons,\' why is it white?), and can be accessed in singleplayer if you activate cheats and run the command in the console \"\\saber crayons.\" The Force is modified to make it much more powerful and have a longer duration and radius, and nothing seems too over-the-top; the author here executed it just right. He claims that we can use Light and Dark at the same time and that when we spawn, both Light and Dark are available to us, but this didn\'t seem to work for me. This does not really matter though, because I enjoyed it even without that feature. A nifty, powerful flame thrower is available when you are on the \"fists\" weapon and use Force Lightning level three, great in many ways except that the charred surrounding area looks awkward and buggy. The power of push and pull has been multiplied to the more realistic level: using them actually knocks around your opponent as it should. I was annoyed that the model makes a sound whenever you jump now, but I was also surprised to find that you can jump really quite high in level three. What\'s really nice is the Force Seeing power, which makes the identification of people really clear due to the increased intensity of the colorations of other characters. Overall, the exaggeration of Force powers and the speed at which they can be used really make this mod what it is, for the most part. The author made some interesting changes to the animations, and I like some of them, but not all of them. It\'s nice to be able to walk normally now like you could in [i]Jedi Outcast[/i]; the [i]Academy[/i] default walking animation I thought was rather atrocious (who walks like that?) in its original form. The lightsaber turn on/off animation I think is nice, but unnecessary; it\'s the singleplayer animation where your hand sort of flips. I really didn\'t like the jumping animation, because it makes you look like a Jedi performing in a ballet, and sometimes it became awkward, sometimes even buggy. A major problem that I had a lot was that I went into undying mode and began to fight NPCs or bots and suddenly my player model would stiff up; the animations would not run, even though my saber still went where I wanted it to go. It\'s like not being able to feel your arm at all, but you can still move it and perform actions with it. I really didn\'t like the animations that occurred whenever you\'re wielding any added sword that wasn\'t a lightsaber—you would begin to do some sort of elegant victory gloat, and it got really annoying because the animation starts the moment you \"ignite\" a sword. Anyway, what I thought was probably my favorite animation was the added one that makes you hold your arm in shock because your hand got chopped off; it was in JK2, but was missing from JK3, and now we have it. The new Force power animations didn\'t seem all that wonderful, but they weren\'t necessarily bad. I mentioned before that I really don\'t like the \"Alora ballet-jump,\" but I do like some of these, like the wave-hand mind trick. The others seemed merely \"okay,\" mostly somewhat unnecessary changes that don\'t seem to add anything exciting to the game. We\'ve seen these Force changes before, and they never did seem to improve the daily life of Jedi. We\'re now supplied with a slightly less than perfect melee weapon (fists and feet) and a delightfully powerful Bryar pistol. I liked the author\'s choice to change the Bryar pistol to this as opposed to any other weapon; the shots fit the fatness of the gun. It now has unlimited ammunition for the normal AT-ST shots, and its secondary fire is now a grenade launcher which seems to fire thermal detonators that explode on impact, creating metallic debris (the debris probably should have looked more generic and less metallic, but I still admire it merely because I\'ve never seen debris from the firing of a gun before). They\'re pretty powerful, and people seemed to have a hard time deflecting the AT-ST shots with their swords; however, the shots can be shoved back with Force push. The author\'s readme claimed that you\'re given the Bryar pistol by default in the game, but you\'re not, which is a bug that needs to be fixed so that people don\'t have to type \"\\give all.\" I\'m not entirely sure that I like the author\'s decision to place all servers using this mod in cheat mode by default. The author also added some moderately intuitive console commands, and I guess you could say that one could have fun in undying mode. Using console commands led me to a stranger problem (?) with the mod: the language. Using certain commands returns a response from the mod, a response that seems to be in either gibberish or a language just too foreign to me. This didn\'t affect gameplay however; I still knew what I was doing. Some other silly bugs existed, one being that spawning an AT-ST NPC results in a non-functional AT-ST that doesn\'t seem to want to turn its head towards me, and occassionally a robotic voice would say into the map (any map, not just Siege mode) \"Perimeter defenses online.\" I have no idea why, but I guess the author should crack down on random stuff like that. I liked the additional bots, NPC, and vehicle. What I thought was questionable—sometimes it sounded great and sometimes it was annoying—was the sounds that were added after successful use of certain Force powers. Especially unnecessary and also sometimes stupid were the taunts that played when you failed to push someone: they didn\'t always seem to be the right taunts. Also, I really don\'t need to hear characters gloat every single time they kill someone will Sith Lightning; that could be more moderated. What would be really nice is if it would only be when you manage to kill multiple people with one shot—then the character gloats. I don\'t think you can do that, but it sure would be a chance for bonus creativity points for the author. In the long run, it seems like these features aren\'t needed, but then why would the author make it? He is not one of those modders who make the mod for no rational, mature reason. He has his true target audience who love over-the-top action, and anyone within that target audience will probably be ecstatic. —Ra-Kom




JA Enhanced Graphics | 219.15 KB

pretty though :) Basically, this mod takes almost everything in the game which is remotely natural looking (and even some player models) and gives them a super dynamic glow. You'll need a vid card which supports this function to use the mod, and you better have eyes which can take a lot of strain! I guess whilst some things look nicer with a glow, giving my stormtrooper SP model a big glow doesn't really work - and seeing glowing rock faces and grass doesn't really fit the bill either. Still, it is interesting to see how the game looks with the shader modifications, and if you like glows in general you'll love this :) ~Szico VII~




[SCA] Stargate | 2.57 MB

show. Anyway, the Stargate in his maps was unbelievably cool, although a little restricted by the limits of the JK3 teleporting functions and whatnot. This small mod is really just a 'new' version of the actual stargate itself, with a new shader and textures. Whether you prefer this new version is really personal choice. If you want my opinion, I prefer the original, it's more more true to the series in terms of both colour, style, and sound - as yes, there are new sounds included. The new sounds are clearer than the old ones, but they're not actually the proper stargate sounds anymore, which kinda defeats the objective don't you think? On the other hand, the new stargate definitely looks cooler when turned off than the old one, but when turned on the colors seem to clash, and I just don't like the red teleport :( More importantly, this is only really worth a download if you stilll play Wade's maps, otherwise it's kind of pointless. Still, here it is, if you want it :) By the way, the old stargate is shown to the left of the screenshots, and the new to the right. ~Szico VII~




Clone Wars Saber Sounds | 1.82 MB

to get a bit boring after a while lol. The only thing that bothered me was that sometimes the different sounds sounded a bit strange when you did several swings in a row, as it might go from a small hum, to a powerful hum on different swings, but still, a really cool mod, one that I will be keeping ;) Nice job mate. ~Nozyspy~




New Saber Sounds | 193.84 KB

and thinks about their saber sounds? And just how hard is it to go out on the web and search for “Star Wars saber sounds?” Still, if for some reason you don’t like your current sounds, this might be worth it. ~Wassup1444465




Real Sabers | 2.76 MB

There\'s something about these sabers I like though. They\'re brighter, more ... solid or something. Not that I haven\'t seen something like it before. But Micah added a few extras that most saber mods don\'t have. There\'s a new loading screen and even a new pointer that\'s a saber hilt. The author claims that this mod is more true to the movies. The sabers are more real. Download it and decide for yourself. :) ~AmosMagee




JK3 Multiplayer One-Hit Kill Mod | 1.55 KB

really relevant if you don\'t play online. But I must say it makes saber dueling VERY challenging. I was hoping it would work with guns as well, but unfortunately a UT2004 \"insta-gib\"-esque mod isn\'t available and this one only works with sabers. However its great fun to play with, and adds much more caution to a duel, which in turn adds to the realism. I can reccomend this mod for a playaround as It\'s fun to use, but the same effect can be achieved using other mods like ja+ which enables you to specificly change damages for certain attacks, wheras this one affects every single move. So it might not be for everyone, and if you run another multiplayer mod which can give you the same effect, this might not be needed - but for those who want some lightning-fast reaction duels, I can\'t recommend this more :D ~Szico VII~

FX Mod (v1.1) | 84.84 KB

chances are the author will listen to what you want. No sounds were changed - these are all just visual effects. The screenshot shows you all of the changes. The weapons\' effects have changed quite a bit, from camera shakes to bigger explosions, colour changes and even some force effects were changed. To really be able to form an opinion, check out the mod for yourself. [/quote] Okay, so I don\'t think I tested everything that was changed here. But I really like the weapons effects that were changed. There was only one animation change I noticed which was the backflip. Check out the screenshots to see what I mean. Really though you should just download this and play with it yourself. There\'s probably a lot more to this mod than I found. ~AmosMagee




Obi-Wan Kenobi | 560.05 KB

can\'t say whether this is good or not. It\'s just ... yeah. So ... if you wanted to play as Obi-Wan in the SP game, download this. ~AmosMagee (Yes, I did copy the review from the Plo Koon one. :P)




Ghostsabers | 570.25 KB

were, in life, blemishes on the Jedi\'s soul itself. Though no better than a regular saber blade, it was, in Bane\'s mind, the ultimate insult to an enemy to use his own soul to slay his comrades...[/quote] Whoa, huh? So anyway, I need to get into the habit of reading the readme BEFORE I test the file. I didn\'t know so much had changed here. I just thought it was the saber trail. Which, by the way, is very cool. Apparently there are quite a few changes here, like the look of saber collision and when you kill someone. So download this mod and check it out! ~AmosMagee




Laser Hilts | 2.21 KB

looks just like the actual lightsaber itself. Unfortunately it doesn\'t look quite right , especially with the sharp edge along the bottom, which normal for a hilt, looks odd in a glowing ball. Apart from that though my skins all look that much cooler ;) They come for all types of lightsaber, staff, single and dual, so whatever style you play with, you can use this mod. I\'m not sure if it works in single player, but I think it should. Secondly, look at the screenshots if that description doesn\'t work for you. I especially like the hilts when the lightsaber is turned off, as the character kinda looks like he\'s holding some kind of energy vial, but I realise that this may not be for everyone, as for some the detail and asthetics of these hilts don\'t match up with some of the other lightsaber gilts there are around. On the plus side its an extremely small file as it uses only textures and effects that come with JKA, and on the bad is the same reason. Because it doesn\'t have a model for the hilt, it doesn\'t seem quite as natural as it could, and upon a close look the edges don\'t seem as\'lasery\' as they could. Perhaps a new model for the hilt next time? Even a ball would look better than the flat edge we have right now. :( ~Szico VII~




Blasters of DOOM | 1.16 MB

(let\'s just call him Zero from now on) has created this weapons mod that changes almost all of the weapons effects to something more spectacular. As you can see from the second screenshot below, the blast from your pistol now packs a much more powerful punch. Though Zero claims that the effects for the det packs have been changed, I don\'t see it. Maybe it\'s really subtle? *shrug* I think the author changed the effects for the rocket launcher a little. The screenshot just looks washed out, but it\'s from the bright strobe light effect that comes from the explosion of a rocket. I don\'t remember that being an effect from the original one. One of my favorite changes is for the E-11. The brilliant blue light is a bit blinding, but it looks really freakin\' cool. The bowcaster now longer spits out little green balls of plasma (or whatever that stuff is); it\'s now a ball of lightning that will spray a bolt in one direction or another. Y\'know the Electromagnetic Pulse thingy? I don\'t remember what it\'s called. So that\'ll work. Well, it also has the lightning effect, but it seems to last longer than the blast usually would. The repeater\'s primary fire doesn\'t seem to be different, but the alt fire is definitely a change. A bright, pure white flash is all you\'ll see. And probably all your opponent will see too. :P The Flechette has a pretty little fireworks display with the primary fire. Unfortunately, the alt fire is just the same lightning effect used for other weapons. It would\'ve been nice to see some continuity between the two effects here, but more like the primary fire. And finally the Concussion rifle has kind of a weird blast that seems ... broken, or something. All in all, this is a fun mod that has some neat effects, but it would be more complete with some new models and new sounds. Also, I have to say that the lightning effect was overused. Other than that (and my other complaint about the Flechette\'s lack of continuity), this would be worth a download if you want a new look to your weapons\' effects. ~AmosMagee




Rodian Species | 8.35 MB

exception. JKA brought numerous new things to the Jedi knight modding community, such as the ability to create completely original saber’s and the implementation of the Siege game type, it also brought in a system to create your own custom appearances. Maddog seems to have taken this last addition on board with this ‘skin pack’ and has created a new Rodian species. Maddog’s Rodians have a greenish blue skin tone that IMHO gives them the appearance of Rodians that live in or near water. The actual clothing for the Rodians remains the same as ravens except that Maddog has added bandages to the arms where there normally isn’t any clothing. The changes that Maddog has made aren’t huge and extravagant, but they are done very well and they add something new to the game, which is always a good thing, and best of all this is a whole new species pack so it doesn’t replace Ravens Rodian species. ~Wolf




Hidden Sabers | 1.18 KB

hilts best known from Jedi Outcast. There\'s the Skywalker hilt, Retribution (or better known as Desann\'s spiky hilt), and the Stinger (which I believe was the Reborn hilt, right?). So if you\'ve been looking for these three hilts to add to JA, and you don\'t want to download the big saber packs that come with like, twenty other hilts, then this little weapon mod is probably just perfect for ya. :) ~AmosMagee




Staff Converted (v7.1) | 1.26 MB

[quote] Szico VII seemed to like version 4 of this mod: Quote: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This is a very cool mod It enales you to have a two-bladed lightsaber , or two, two-bladed lightsabers, instead on a single bladed lightsaber, or two single bladed lightsabers. Understand? Getting confusing yet? Anyway, basically it looks really cool and allows you to use styles only availabe for the sigle bladed lightsaber, such as \'strong\' or \'fast\' with a double bladed one. Like the author admits in the readme, the blade tends to go through your character when you swing it, and unfortunately there seems to be a problem with the textures/shaders on the custom hilts, so they dont show up like they should. Another nice touch is that you can still throw the lightsabers at your opponents, it it very good to see the double blade spinning around and slicing your mystified opponents apart. Apart from this though, everything looks polished, and it is also compatible for Single Player mode. Great Job, I look forward to the final version! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- It seems that Szico VII was impressed by this mod, but he was still looking forward to the final version. I can\'t remember seeing the other previous versions of this mod, but it sounds like 6.0 might be the last update. But don\'t quote me on that. All that\'s been changed here is the standing stance for the staff and the texture problem. Oh, and the author says that the brokens staffs work now. So if you\'re a fan of this mod, get the latest version. [/quote] Okay, anyone wanna place bets on this being Vouksh\'s final version? I\'m gonna wager that we\'ll be seeing at least one more update, maybe two! ;) Anyway, it seems that Vouksh changed his mind about the crystal sabers and removed those. He\'s also shortened the length of the hilts and reduced their width by 75%. There\'s one addition to the mod - the \"lazer shield\". It does look cool, but it\'s fairly useless - especially if you use it as a single saber ... hehe. Unfortunately, I found that there were textures missing. :( I also found this in the readme though: \"It’s only in it’s beta stages so don’t be too mad.\" Soooo ... my guess is the update is in the works. :) ~AmosMagee

special single bladed tricks. It's extremely pointless. :( On the smaller plus side, there are no bugs :/ and it makes a little variation..... for a tiny while - and the file size is tiny :) ~Szico VII~




Sabers and Sounds | 964.27 KB

would be important in setting the tone, or the mood for the tale. However, if I\'m just playing around on a server and reenacting scenes from like, Episode 1, I do not need the exact same saber sounds from the movie to make the experience more realistic. (And by the way, I only did that once, in JK2, on that Duel of the Fates map and I was really, really, really bored.) Saber sounds just aren\'t that important to me. But maybe they are to you! This is a little saber mod with four pk3\'s included. Two come from the original trilogy and the others are supposed to be from Episode 2, including the sounds. Which is a tad confusing, because the author mentions that the \"darth maul\" push sound is in there, but like, Darth Maul isn\'t in Episode 2 ... right? Anyway, as with all saber mods, all I can do is toss up a screenshot and suggest that you guys try it if saber mods are your cup of tea. :) ~AmosMagee




Bold Sabers | 540.6 KB

one is of the regular JKA saber. To me, the saber seems very round and wide. You can barely see the core - it seems like the majority of what you\'re looking at is the glow. Now turn your attention to the second screenshot. You\'ll notice that the sabers are slimmer, the glow seems a bit toned down and as the title suggests, the sabers are bold. I do like these sabers, but I guess I\'m a little disappointed that nothing else was really changed here. Though I don\'t usually like new saber sounds, the pk3 just seems a little incomplete. Doesn\'t mean I\'m not keeping this mod! It\'s staying in my base folder \'til something better comes along. :) Good work. ~AmosMagee




Academy: FPS | 1.55 MB

and turns them all into swords and sith swords. It\'s basically like sabers just didn\'t exist! You can tell a fair bit of effort was put into adding all this new stuff, I\'m imagining it but I could swear the defenses look different now, they are not changed but because of the new efx files things look quite different. I\'ve noticed in a lot of mods that people don\'t go that extra mile and replace even the small stuff, this mod does. The blood effect is interesting, it looks more like red puffs of smoke, of course JA wasn\'t designed to show blood so this is a good second for those of you who like to see that gorey red after a kill. Some of the weapon effects have also been changed somewhat and they aren\'t too bad but the bullets do look a bit flat for the E11 and DL44. This mod contains new sounds, new effects and new models so all in all very good for the file size! -WadeV1589-




Original JK2 Character Sounds for JKA | 1.58 MB

Desann sound pack, this one replaces the new sounds for the old characters with the sounds that most of us associate them with. Instead of Jan saying \"Take that!\", we expect to hear her say \"Come on out here\", or something to that effect. With this little mod, you can have the old familiar sounds of Kyle, Jan, Mon Mothma, Chiss and many others. ~AmosMagee




Desann Sound Pack | 586.89 KB

close - the mouths move with taunts now. This is news to me, but it definitely made Desann look more realistic. ^_^ Anywho, get this file on your computer. Because I for one, am sick of listening to Desann sound like a reborn. - Chrono




JA Saber Hilts | 160.95 KB

Desann saber looks very good in my opinion, along with the Luke saber. The sounds that are used on the Luke saber sound very good. The reborn saber was pretty plain looking it was like any other saber in the Star Wars world. The sabers are only for duel sabers and the single saber, so for all you staff people I guess you can say shucks. I really liked the Luke saber because of the nice look and the sounds he used from Return of the Jedi (ROTJ). There are not too many JKA hilts out there right now and most of them suck (no offense to those who made them and they sucked). The bottom of the Desann saber looked a bit strange because of the texture, but thats just me :). So umm there isn\'t too much to offer, but hey its three hilts in one yipee! So I would download it mainly for the Luke hilt not as much for the others. The thing that I liked about this is that it takes just as much thought and concentration to make a hilt as it does to wield a saber. The hilts look just like a normal Star Wars hilt nothing amazingly strange on them. Overall these saber hilts were a pretty good bunch. The reborn I didn\'t like so much because of its overall plainness. The Desann saber looked pretty good it had all the good touches put onto it just like on the spikes. The Luke saber is probably my favorite and you would know that if you actually read the review :). Just hearing the sounds on the Luke saber made me like it. Personally I would get this set of hilts and seeing that it isn\'t too big of a file it shouldn\'t take you too long to download it so for all you lazy people like me get your lazy hand on the mouse and hit the download button and yipee! Good job cHoSeN oNe maybe you can now make a whole set of the Star Wars character\'s weapons and hilts :). I am out! *Walks away into a galaxy fairly close* -XgamerX New sounds: Yes

Flamethrower Blaster | 32.53 KB

name of the mod, duh :P). Now this isn’t a flamethrower in the traditional sense, as you may be expecting, since it does not shoot a jet of flame at your enemies. Rather it shoots 'bolts' of flame (with new fiery soundsets) rather than blaster bolts, though this is no less cool! Err, wait... I mean hot! Unfortunately though it is more difficult to aim, as the expanding jet of fire from each fire bolt obscures your view somewhat, but its still good fun to use nonetheless! All in all a very fun little mod here, give it a download if you like the look of it! :) ~Nozyspy~




Atomic Thermal Detonator v1.0 | 784.82 KB

fps? If so, this is the mod for you! [quote]What this mod does is modify the special effects for the explosion of the thermal detonator to look like an atomic blast. I did not increase the area of effect or damage because I wanted to see how this mod did first.[/quote] So maybe I was slightly overly sarcastic on that intro. This mod increases the size of the thermal det explosion SIGNIFICANTLY. That is - the explosion looks bigger, it isn\'t actually bigger damage-wise. Obviously there are a couple of disadvantages to an explosion of this size: -If a thermal det explodes near you, you\'ll be blinded with an inescapable mass of white glowies for a few seconds. -It costs a lot of FPS. For obvious reasons, this can be rather disastrous when multiple people are going around throwing thermal dets at eachother. On the other hand, hey, giant explosion! The first person to use this to blow up a caravan gets to share in my chocolate stash. -Caelum




Alternate Loading Screens | 1.04 MB

Jaden backed by the familiar Jedi Knight logo. Secondly we have a new loading screen for when loading a map which does not have its own levelshot. The default one is the one with the two Jedi Sparring against a starry backdrop, now we have a head shot of a Rodian and Twi\'lek Jaden (paradox much? :P) wish sabers locked. All in all another nice little mod from MagSul to spruce up those well worn ingame screens and menus, keep up the good work MagSul! :) ~Nozyspy~




Illidan\'s Stance Mod

illidan_stances.rar | 7.88 MB

doesn\'t love them? I, for one, don\'t, but then, I guess I\'m just too used to the default animations :p [quote]A simple mod which changes the medium, dual and staff saber stance to three custom made stances. The stances look more steady and don\'t resemble combat stances that much.Next time i will make them a bit smoother and add a meele, strong and fast stance too.[/quote] Basically, my job has been done for me here - new medium, dual and staff stances, my main problem with which is the fact that they don\'t look like combat stances that much. Honestly, they\'re too rigid in my opinion, making one look like a plank instead of a fighter. There might be those who disagree though. On the bright side, Illidan has promised to make them smoother and add more in a next version ;) If you want them, go get them. -Caelum




Jaden Sounds & NPC

jaden_sounds_npc_v2.rar | 5.92 MB

Maaajor let down, even though one can\'t blame Ravensoft for that oversight. So, Jedi_HM2 has made something that surprisingly -- at least to my knowledge -- no one else has done. Jaden now has a full set of taunts, gloats, flourishes, combat sounds, the whole ensemble that a Jaden NPC would need. It was so refreshing to hear Jaden say something else for once..and the scary part is, the taunts were actually pretty good choices, for pretty much every set of sounds called. However, there\'s two caveats here: 1.) Only supports English Jaden Male: A\'right, I understand you probably weren\'t thinking about international support, but I\'m sure you could have at least reciprocated the same choices for Jaden female, right? Definitely consider at least doing that, so all the lady/digital tranny players can enjoy the fruits of your labors. 2.) Bit overzealous of sounds: Usually 1 to 3 audio clips is enough, but looks like you went a bit overboard. Some of these have 1 to 5 clips, and the victory taunts have 10 sounds. Y\'think you have enough, chief? XD Other than that, a very smart project. Included as well(as stated in the title,) is a small .npc file that grants you a Jaden companion NPC that you can use in your adventures. Pretty powerful, but not completely out of whack. Not a bad job, HM2. Lookin\' forward to see what other projects you have in store![/quote] So, what\'s gone on since then? Female Jaden was supported. It\'s just english, uses the same sound choices, but still, it\'s +1 female. Next? Jaden Female NPC. Woop woop. Finally, Kyle and Luke now have more sounds to accompany their soundsets, some of which are actually from JK2. Mighta been worth making those their own separate unit, but hey, still a good job on making Jaden less repetitive. We\'re done here. Go away. - Averus Retruthan




Jedi Outcast Sounds & stuff

jk2_sounds_bonus.rar | 18.64 MB

anything, but if you want them to replace the JA sounds, well then comment or e-mail me or something, and I\'ll make them replace the JA sounds. This also brings back the Galak_Mech model, and the ol\' Minemonster model from JK2. It\'s a bummer that you can\'t play either one of them in MP, but I guess you can still have fun in SP! This is a mod for the sounds from Jedi Outcast, + the Galak_mech and Mine monster models. [/quote] However, the Galak Mech will more than likely be missing his antenna and force field, since Jedi_HM2 did not include the materials for them. Everything else is pretty much just a full out swipe from the assets pk3s. You\'ll know if you want it. - Averus Retruthan




Expert\'s Saber Sounds | 291.53 KB

haven\'t found a saber sound mod that I really like. Not to say this isn\'t a good saber sound mod. :) I just can\'t hear much distinction between this one and the others I\'ve reviewed. They always sound a bit tinny to me, if that makes sense. The sounds just don\'t sound right in the game to me. But, I\'m hard to please. :) ~AmosMagee




Force Storm | 3.15 MB

The REAL Scepter & The Sabers Of the Power | 291.11 KB

sabers and one scepter of Ragnos. The sabers have longer blades, and I assume they are fine-tuned in other ways as well, but what really interested me was the scepter. It has a half-mile long saber blade and the neato energy effects that Tavion shot out of it. There is a problem with them, though...the effect comes out at an angle, so don't expect it to follow your saber. Looks rather goofy. But anyways, if you like a hilariously overpowered saber or you want to wield a scepter that's literally as powerful as it was when possessed Tavion used it, this is your file. ~Dretzel




TFU Black Saber | 355.17 KB

better than Rosh. Anyways, one of the neat features about this game is you can change your lightsaber crystal anytime when you find them. You can find all the colors ; blue, green, red, purple, orange, yellow, and there is one bonus crystal you find on the final Death Star mission: a negative crystal. Yes, I said negative, as this crystal makes the lightsaber blade emit a black core with a white glow, and let me tell you, it looks awesome. Spior has perfectly recreated this, even though I never found that crystal (damn!) I've seen plenty of videos and images with it, and this is probably an exact replica. It comes with its bugs, though. It replaces the orange blade, so when you go near a wall or close to the floor you get an orange glow radiating off the walls, instead of the color of the blade. It also doesn't feature dynamic glow, so when you turn it on you still get the same thin glow you get without it. Keep in mind that the fact that this [b]replaces the orange blade[/b] will create problems if you have pre-installed saber color mods. Nice work, though, and if you make a version 2, I insist you fix the problems I said. Enjoy. ~Authuran




4Glory Gun Re-vamp | 10.17 MB

is so annoying, and the blaster pistol can barely hurt a fly. Not to mention the repeater looks like its shooting molten apples out of the tiny little barrel of it. Unfortunately, you will have to deal with that because the models haven't been changed in this mod. Instead they have been reskinned! Yes, some are more green, some more orange, red, name any color. The skinning quality is hard to explain. There's not really any enormous changes when recoloring a gun. I mean what am I supposed to say? "All the bumps and scratches that were there before are still there but in orange." Really all I can say is that the author did a fantastic job with the recoloring. I didn't see any weird lines or colors splotching over into the next part. But wait! That's not all, is what Bill Mays would say if he were a JKfiles reviewer. The author has also put in.... *drumroll*.... new gun effects! Some of the guns will now shoot green (eggs and ham) lasers at your enemies, or teammates if you are that kind of person. Really, like before it's also hard to explain. The quality is good for... weapon effects.... and the coloring is really hard to see because, well, I don't have to explain it! It's common sense lasers in Star Wars fly at intense speeds! But judging by the screenshots the coloring looks fine, nice, however you describe laser coloring. Mmmm download if you hate the way the weapons look, and are looking for a nice quality replacement. Enjoy. ~Authuran

Dark Side Perspective Mod v4 | 11.52 MB

ease of use. First off we have a mod which isn’t really ‘Dark Side themed’ but nevertheless does fit well with everything else in the compilation (since its red and sort of evil looking); an Alien Vs Predator 2 style crosshair. Next up we have a mod which changes the colour of force lightning to… you guessed it! Red! To be honest I have always thought that red lightning looks much scarier and more evil than the normal force lightning. I seem to remember that Darth Maul, in the final boss battle of the Episode 1 game, used red lightning against the player. Maybe that’s where it stems from? Anyways, this is a simple change, but it is indeed effective and I like it! Next up we have a saber stance mod which is supposed to give you a back-handed lightsaber stance like in The Force Unleashed. However the only stance this seemed to affect was the stance for the staff saber, rather than the single saber style as I was expecting. Last up we have the HUD mod, which is basically the same HUD as the default JKA one, but in a red and black colour theme which fits well with the rest of the red themed mod’s in this compilation. There are also some interesting additions; the first one you will notice is the new splash screen that shows when you start up the game. Whilst this looks ok, I think it would have been better fitting with the theme of the mod if it had a Sith character on it, or some red lightsaber’s/lightning to indicate the Dark Side connection. There is also a .exe to start the mod, although this isn’t necessary since the mod starts up with the game if you just place the .pk3 in your base folder. Also included is a cheat .cfg file, if you are so inclined! Lastly, there is also a new load screen based on the one with the two characters duelling against the starry background, you know the one. This has been edited slightly with… oddly… the addition of a few bell peppers?! (Yes, the fruit!) I’m not sure what that’s all about! :P Whilst the author didn’t make these mod’s, I must say I am glad that they have been compiled into one easy to use mod, rather than having to look all over and download each one individually. All of the mod’s fit well together despite being made by different authors (who’s names you can find in the included readme’s) so I must say well done to the author of this file for finding and compiling a series of mod’s which fit so well together. Overall a nice compilation mod here, if you want to take a walk on the Dark Side, then give this a download! :) ~Nozyspy~




New Force Sounds | 1.5 MB

good an idea. Here we have a small mod made by Modman, which replaces several of the force power sound effects ingame, including; Force Push, Pull Sense and Speed. Personally I think all the new sounds are better than the old ones, although I especially liked the new force speed sound effects. I would really love to see this mod expanded to cover all the force power sound effects, like lightning and heal, etc. :D I think though that the sounds could have been a little stronger, especially the force speed sound effects. I was hoping for more of a powerful gust kind of sound, so it feels like you are breaking the sound barrier. But then again, that is just my preference! Overall this is a cool little mod here, and I hope it will be expanded upon in the future. For now, if you guys like the sound of this (pun intended), then be sure to give it a download! ~Nozyspy~




Star Wars - Masters Of The Force Stances | 8.23 MB

that that the makers of JKA didn’t make the animations more lifelike. Especially considering the improvements modders have been able to make. But, of course, Raven had time and monetary constraints that modders don’t have, so I guess there is a good reason! Here Jesus Fernandez Garcia brings us a mod, which brings together many new improvements to the lightsaber stances and other animations (including the jump animations and force power animations) for JKA. A full list of the changes to the animations can be found in the readme. So what are these new animations like? Well, very good I would say! The jumping animations for one look more natural I think, especially the speed at which the jumps are performed. The roll animations also look more natural, though I think the distance covered when you roll is a bit too much. All the saber stances have been changed and I think they look cool, especially the new stance for the staff saber which looks very sweeping and dramatic. There do seem to be a few bugs when transitioning between certain animations, but these aren’t serious and aren’t that noticeable either and overall I think all the new saber stance animations look very cool. After many years of playing with Base JKA animations, these are a refreshing change! :) There are also changes to the force power animations, including push, pull and grip among others. I think these too are a good improvement over the default JKA animations although the changes are a bit subtler than with the saber stances. For improvements I would suggest working on making the transition between animations a bit smoother, they do look a little jerky sometimes. I don’t know whether this is possible, but I think it would be cool to make some new animations for the Kata attacks too because I think that would be a refreshing change to the lightsaber combat in JKA. All in all a cool mod here which brings a lot of nice changes to the game. I definitely think this is worth a download for anyone who would like to see some more natural player animations in Jedi Academy! ~Nozyspy~

Negative Saber Mod

negativesabermod.rar | 2.75 MB

does just that. Unlike Japlus's black bladed saber, this one makes just the core black (which I think looks MUCH better). The quality is actually rather high, considering the entire core of the saber is compressed into a 64x256 image. Also included are two versions of the saber blur. One of them is black (unsurprising), while the other is white. (gasp!) Like the core, the blur images are well done. But wait! That's not all! This mod only just happens to come with Starkiller's saber as a bonus! Unfortunately, this is where quality has a heart attack and dies in the hospital. I'll try to make it quick. No shaders, low poly, bad textures, and both versions of the saber are backhand, not backhand and normal as promised in the readme. There, that wasn't so bad, was it? My advice? Redo the saber from scratch, and vet your progress through the FileFront forums. (If you do that, and don't get any bad comments from Inyri, you're on the right track.) That's all. Cry HAVOC!! And let slip the Monkeys of Bandwidth! ~Crazy




Bearded Heads | 9.71 MB

pack offers a bearded version of each of the three heads available with the Human-Male Jaden. [b]Head 1: White, with brown hair.[/b] This one offers a brownish-gray mini-goatee with a downward handlebar-looking mustache. The overall quality is decent, but there is room for improvement. [b]Head 2: White, with blonde hair.[/b] This face offers a full chin with a bit of mustache, all seemingly close-cut. The hair color appears to be blonde, but it's hard to tell. The overall quality could be improved. [b]Head 3: Black, with matching hair.[/b] This one is the most simplistic of the group. There's a hint of stubble under the nose, and a small spike on the chin. This one has the best quality, in my opinion. Well, there you have it. Decent quality and a good idea, but there is one little problem: The author decided to include the entire Human-Male Jaden folder, when only the faces were really necessary. ~Crazy




SM Cool Saber Effects | 123.68 KB

minutes was wasted, though. I did notice a minor difference in the colors of the sabers while testing - they seemed a little more saturated. But what I thought looked good was the new saber trail. The trails are much more transparent - much nicer than the old white one. Now, I know there's a pretty good chance a mod like this has been done before. However, it's not a bad mod at all. Have a look at the screenshot, and if it tickles your fancy, have at it! ~Dretzel




Throwable Stuff | 1.18 MB

had to point that out. But yunz are here for the file review, no doubt. I found this file quite amusing. The concept is neat - throwable objects. But what made it amusing was Jose's [i]choice[/i] of objects. They range from several crates and a table, to a stone statue and even the Millenium Falcon! That one was the most fun. Better still, according to the readme, you mappers out there can use these in your maps. This is really neat for a map with a hangar bay or cargo area - now you can add more realism! Now, on the downside...As Jose mentioned in the readme, due to time contraints, some of the objetcs (like the Millenium Falcon) aren't properly clipped, so you can walk through the model. I was fine with that, although there was one other thing that bothered me. Apparently, these objects aren't meant to be destroyed, because when I threw them into pits, they just disappeared without exploding. If you do a version 2, definitely see what you can do about that. Well, there you have it. If you like playing solo and want things to throw around, or you want to make videos, or you want to have the coolest hangar bay map ever, download this! ~Dretzel




Chronicles Total Conversion - Demo

chronicles.rar | 72.98 MB

rival MovieBattles II in terms of the scope of the mod. To explain a little further I think I should paste in a snippet from the readme, as I think it explains the mod’s purpose very well. [quote] Star Wars Chronicles is a Jedi Academy Modification that is being developed by the Chronicles Team since August 17th 2007. The idea is creating singleplayer missions that resembles to the six movies of the saga, something that many dreamt and couldn't do so far. We count with a huge number of members that are working to provide you the best quality and pleasure. MovieBattles Team, responsible for creating the famous MovieBattles II modification is supporting us.[/quote] Well, like I said, this is going to be one beast of a mod! Basically recreating the Star Wars sage in Jedi Academy! The demo they have presented to us here is just a taster of the good things to come. The demo features the beginning of Episode I: The Phantom Menace, with a faithful recreation of the Trade Federation ship. In fact, when I played this, especially the bit where Obi and Qui-Gon break out of the conference room, it reminded me of the old Episode 1 game. Man that brought back good memories! :D Obviously being a demo, some things aren’t fully realised yet, but that’s ok because what is in this demo gives you an excellent taster of the gameplay. The mod features a new HUD which is clean and simple and looks great and I was especially impressed with the start menu (the one that pops up when you click the mod’s icon on your desktop). From there you can choose to play either the default JKA single or multiplayer as well as the mod. But buttons are also there which will take you straight to the credits, or the teams Moddb page, Official Website or Official Forums! I personally thought this was a very nice touch, allowing you to jump to whichever site you want to see very quickly and straight from the mod’s start-up menu screen on your desktop. The menu screens ingame have also been given a good going over, with a new background and graphics and some great new music playing too. One particular aspect which I must commend the team on was the cut-scenes, which are very close to the films actual scenes, and also include the films dialogue too, which helps with the cinematic feel. Though this is a demo and doesn’t represent the completed mod, there are a couple of things I would suggest working on. For one I think the textures in the Trade Federation ship could do with a bit more texture and detail to them, since they looked a little flat in places. Also in one area Qui-Gon (you play as Obi) got stuck, and I had to try and continue alone. Unfortunately because of this I wasn’t able to play the demo right until the end, but I feel I got a good taste of what this mod can offer. All in all this is a fantastic demo and I look forward with great anticipation to the full release of this mod. I definitely recommend a download here, you won’t be disappointed! :) ~Nozyspy~




New Pistol Stance | 8.23 MB

sidearm like this, it's much more difficult to steady your aim and bring the sight back onto the target against the recoil when you have nothing to use as a lower limit. Aside from the ins-and-outs of how to wield sidearms, the only real bug is acknowledged by the author - the floating left hand. As for the stance itself, well, zip through a few episodes of NCIS or Criminal Minds, for good examples. I think it's the sixth episode of Criminal Minds - the sniper episode - where the resident genius is getting a shooting lesson, that's a perfect reference shot right there; I actually used that scene to get reference pics of his Glock, but it'll work for your purposes too. You can also use SWAT4 - that game has realistic motion captures performed by actual SWAT officers. Often, the wielding hand - in this case, right - is fully extended, whereas the off-hand - left in this scenario - is slightly bent inwards and the hand is used as a cradle in which to rest the butt of the weapon, thus steadying the aim. It's not the coolest-looking stance, but at least you have a significantly higher chance of hitting your target than you would rushing in "Lara Croft super-flying-monkey akimbo style". Well, nice new stance for pistol-users, but they're so drastically underpowered in this game, I'm not so sure anyone actually does. Oh well. It's the thought that counts! ~ Kouen

You can say this isn't really significant enough to make a cheat mod.... but ask yourself, now that several of the weapon's firing modes have been rendered obsolete, what's to stop you from always using the power attack? Yeah, yeah, I know.... Suppose the good thing is that these modifications will apply to NPCs, too. So, for all their stupidity, they'll still benefit from your upgrades. Might give them a fighting chance, and it certainly will make gameplay more adrenal, so hey, maybe it's not as bad as it sounds. ~ Kouen

OJP Enhanced Unlimited | 1.24 MB

folder. - Sabers Last I checked, there were no visible limits on how many sabers you could actually have, but I guess I may have been wrong or I simply never had that many sabers. Even if you were under the limits, though, only twenty or so appeared on the list and the console was necessary for the others. With JA Unlimited, virtually all sabers will appear on the menu (obviously it's not really unlimited, but it may as well be) and there ceiling limit on how many you can have has been turned into the roof limit - 'tis much higher. Higher than I was able to reach with every lightsaber, sword, baseball bat, axe, halberd, polearm, voulge and God-only-knows-what-else I could procure from JKFiles. Since saber switching via /saber only appears to work in JA+, this is great for anyone not using these mods, since you no longer need to know the .sab designations to load your sabers. - Maps Again, you can usually have as many maps as you'll need, but now they'll all show on the menu so that you don't need to open pk3s in Pakscape/PakRat (shout-out for you Maccies out there ;) ), find the bsp name and use /devmap to load your maps. Great improvement in my book, helpful for those who don't check map pk3s by default, or don't know how to. - NPCs Now, this one you did have a limit on, and that limit is basically kaput. You can now have as many NPCs as you'll need - again, I'm figuring 65535 being the ceiling limit, but you'll probably never reach that many - without that pesky ".npc extensions are too large!" error in multiplayer. Score one for no annoyances! - Vehicles Oh yeah. Now we're talkin'. If you're like me and enjoy going to town with some serious vehicular manslaughter, again, this is the mod for you. No more .veh extensions errors, and the error with .vwp files (which were still at factory limits in the last release) is now fixed, so you can have as much firepower as you need in the base folder. - Models / Skins Considering the game can hold as many models/skins as you can use, I always found it kinda dopey that there was a limit on the amount of icons, but that limit is now gone. - Species Selections The limit was previously 32. Now, it's... what is it again? 65535 or something like that? Ain't that quite a resume? [b]Disclaimers[/b] ► This will [b]not[/b] work in the singleplayer game - source code for the SP DLLs was never released. Strictly MP only, sorry folks. ► Naturally, SP won't work at all if you're over any limits, so basically, my advice: don't put mods in base, make a seperate mod folder for this and dump your files in there, then launch this mod via .bat file. That way you can have as much as you need in MP, without shafting SP. ► Limits are there for reasons, as Kat Angel quite rightly states in the readme. Even though this mod means the game won't object to extreme amounts of mods, please try and factor in how much the iD Tech 3 engine can handle, and how much your computer can handle. If you have too much in your base folder, your game will take ages to load. The more you have, the slower it gets. The less RAM your computer has, the slower load times pass. The slower your CPU, the slower load times will be. You also risk your computer randomly shutting down, restarting, or random crashes by having more than the computer can handle. So, basically, if you never use it, don't keep it, 'cuz the more you got the more strain your system takes. Please note that since this is the OJP Enhanced version, installation instructions differ somewhat to the baseJA version. At Kat Angel's request, the install instructions will be added into the review. [b]-Installation Instructions-[/b] Easy! Simply open up the zip file and dump z_ja_unlimited.pk3 into your ***ojpenhanced*** folder (not base), and optionally include thumbnailshrink_ojp_enhanced.pk3 or thumbnailshrink_more_ojp_enhanced.pk3 with it. If you place the file in your base folder, it WILL NOT WORK with OJP, and may cause base JKA to behave strangely. (Most likely, that means "to crash.") Then start up JA, and you're done! [b]-End Installation Instructions-[/b] Right, safety warnings and summaries out of the way, I think we're done here. Overall, great mod for you "pakrats" (no pun intended). If you play OJP Basic and like to use a lot of add-ons, this is a sure-fire winner. ~ Kouen




Movie Blur | 3.31 KB

away like in the game does. I actually couldn\'t tell much difference. But if you guys can then I\'m sure you\'ll like it. Any mod that makes the game a bit more accurate movie-wise is fine by me. So what are ya waiting for? Gives this a download if it appeals to you! :D [i]Ayane Yamazaki[/i]




Clonewar Stances and Effects | 24.34 MB

because I don\'t think the stances and new/changed anims really flow together very well. My main beef with this is that when you swing it seems to start out in the default animation, but then choppily switches to a newly defined anim and it doesn\'t look very realistic. I did like all the new stances, though, which look very nice indeed for the most part. Of course a lot more has been changed than just saber stances and a couple of swings, and I didn\'t have a chance to test this mod out to its full potential (since the read-me is a little vague on the specifics). It\'s also fully compatible with both JA+ and OJP, so that\'s another hilight that might make this work grabbing for some of you! I strongly encourage folks to give this a try, test it out to see how much it changes, and leave comments on your favorite parts. That was we can all find out just how far the rabbit hole goes. ;) ~Inyri




Throwable staves | 1.86 KB

fast style when only one blade is active. From my own personal usage, the staff throwing works only in Single Player, but the style change works in multiplayer. So, if you like the sound of it, give it a download. I, meanwhile, need to find new ways to tell you to give it a download. :p




SP Collection - Alora | 1.91 MB

the Hoth missions, as the Hoth clothing fix has not been applied here. Yes, yes, I know. Tragedy, isn't it? Other than that, it works exactly how you'd expect. It will definitely clash with any other SP species mod, though, as there's a pretty good chance the same values have been used in each of the mods. It's a risk which is always present with this sort of thing, so if that happens, you'll have to decide which species mod you want to keep and remove the other. Well... if you want to play as Alora in SP without haxing, use this. ~ Kouen




New fast anim | 714.79 KB

onto the review! This is a little mod that changes animations. First off, the animations for blue/fast style have been changed to yellow/medium style. The blue lunge attack has been changed to look like Alora\'s saber throw attack. The idle stance for blue has been changed to holding the saber like red/slow style, but with the saber held back a bit more. The rolls have been changed as well. The forward roll has been changed to a sort of dive roll forward, and the side rolls have been changed to cartwheels. Lastly, the walk animation has been changed to the JK2 walk animation. So, all in all, not a bad little mod. I know that I like it, but unfortunately will not be able to keep it because of conflicting mods in my base folder. :p Give it a download!




Stormtrooper SP | 233.16 KB

only thing this mod has going for it is that you also get red and blue color variations for the stormtrooper as well as a version with the arm patch thing. Enjoy. ~Metall Pingwin




New Saber Blade Sizes | 4.81 KB

little mod changes the length and width of all the sabers except one staff and one single saber. The length and width is based on the hilt chosen, so it will not work with custom sabers as it is. Some of the sabers are really long, some are really thin, and some are really thick. This mod also makes it so that when you throw your saber, it still spins and does damage on it\'s way back, though makes no sound. The mod should work for both SP and MP, which is a little bonus. A nice little mod if you are bored, I say. Give it a download if you are interested.




Dark Force Mod Final (Fixed) | 1.29 MB

changes. And, since this includes the mod itself, here's the review I wrote for the last release: [quote]It's that time again! Yep, another version of the Dark Force Mod has been released. According to the author, this is the final version, but I could have sworn I have heard that before... Anyway, since not much has changed since the previous version, I will just give you a link to it and quote the changes from the readme. Dark Force Mod v24.3 Review Quote:-Fixed bug: Bot kata doesnt work on v.24.3, (even for kate_walker), now all bot can do. -Fixed bug: Jetpack gravity are too low, makes it difficult to have air control. -Fixed bug: Bot does taunting too much in battle, now addded flow control. -Fixed bug: Weapon charging time exceeding limit which is wasting ammo. -Fixed bug: Magic Melee (quad mode melee) is too weak, this should be powerfull. -Removing singleplayer extra at v.24.3, it's useless and wasting space frown -Compressing .dll file by removing garbage code to reduce .pk3 file size. Go ahead and give this mod a try if you haven't before. If you have, here's another update. Share and enjoy! stick out tongue [/quote]




Cyberpunk HUD | 28.21 KB

on the Elegance HUD, as you can see (The tic marks are very similar). Simple design, and it doesn’t look too bad. I thought the colors were a bit bland, as it’s all white. Maybe have each bar for health, ammo, shields and force be slightly tinged red, orange, green and blue. Or not. I’d just like a little bit of variation. Anyways, if you like the look of this, then download it. ~Zach (I stand corrected. It does not work in Jedi Outcast.)




Whiteless Saber | 1.74 MB

the white saber core was ruining the beautiful saber trails, so he removed them. Yes, that's right, now all you get is the color glow. No core! It looks a little funky, but just by removing the core it makes your typical run-of-the-mill lightsaber look completely different. Give it a try if you're looking for something new![/quote]Version two brings us further from the standard saber, this time removing the blurred effect altogether from the blade. Now they look... well, like those foam batons people duel with. You know what I'm talking about? I find it to be a really amusing look because that's what it reminds me of. Now we just need a pedestle for people to whack each other off of... American Gladiators, anyone? Anyway, this particular mod does not make your saber a padded stick, as my previous comment may have suggested. It is still just as deadly as before, but perhaps with a far more unique look. ~Inyri




Blade of Balrog | 44.75 KB

It gives a definite firey look to the blades, and now in version 2 is available for all blade colors. Simple words do a mod like this injustice, so check the screenshots below to see what the blades actually look like. ~Inyri




Sith Lords Pack | 20.79 MB

and sounds. - New Menu - 3 maps - a small .cfg that\'s probably useless to you all I shall review these items of malevolent darkness in that order. Firstly, the Darth Jion skin. A basic reborn skin that was totally black and would have been a great success if not for one fatal flaw: the author attempted to use a cultist face texture for a reborn. The result is a twisted and contorted face. You\'re lucky I do not unleash my horde of Blade Harpies upon you for such sightlessness =_O! Proceeding forward, we arrive at the custom character reskins. While there is no script with a title on them,(see example in screenshot.) this is but a simple blackening of the clothing. Fashionable, but very simple if you ask me. With little to say about that, I shall proceed forward. =_= The saber retextures were quite primitive. The result was a simply blocky saber. A trail was lacking, so it felt like I was wielding a stick instead of a glowy saber. The sounds were...okay I suppose. Sabers sound all alike to me with the exception of a few sounds that entice my ears. The new menu was basically a red overhaul of the menu itself. Once again, very primitive and basic, but in my opinion it achieves an alright effect. The mouse cursor is all red, there is an Imperial March theme (though of questionable quality) playing in the background, and the menus themselves are all red. While I like it, it seems awfully effortless. The 3 maps. Yes, there are 3, but they are virtually the same: a simple box with a couple of buttons to spawn NPCs and open a barrier. The End. The maps were intended for ranks of the sith, as to be expected. While these maps were utilitarian, the author failed to put enough spawn points in the maps to prevent everyone from being crushed. Of course, if people could be PATIENT, it\'s possible to get along fine without that =_O *wags scythe at the public* The configuration is simply a set of commands that were intended for JA. If you want to work with it go ahead. Otherwise, I\'d suggest ignoring it if you don\'t know what the commands are meant for.(Or if you don\'t agree with those settings.) Overall, a very basic and primitive pack. I foresee that the author was doing what I do: Poke-Jab modding. Translated, it basically means the author did very simple alterations and innovations to make the whole pack look good. Not very impressive, but perhaps this could be of interest to some of the public. Make your pilgramage to the temple should you wish to take this. - Averus Retruthan




Kingdom Keyblade | 191.92 KB

thing, because with each version submitted by a different author the mods invariably get better and better! That said, it is my secure opinion that this is the most accurate Kingdom Key thus far. It is proportional, contains the details the others lack, and fits in your character's hand very snugly. The texturing also is not bad at all (though the skinmap could be cleaned up :p). This model does have a few weak points I feel I should point out. First I was going to say no shader, but there is a shader. It's just very very weak and not really noticeable at all. Kind of a bummer, really, because a nice shine would really pump up this model. Maybe even a [i]very[/i] light chrome shader on the silver parts (and maybe the handle) would really spruce it up. Also, sounds. Sword sounds... and I think we can all agree that this particular keyblade is not sharp, so it shouldn't be making sword hitting sounds. Real keyblade sounds would really polish this mod off, I think. Definitely something to look into for a v2 (which I expect to see, by threat of violence!). Also, I hate the JA sword trail. I personally just remove trails from all my weapons, and I think it looks more realistic. Don't know about the rest of you feel about the trails, so maybe I'm just rambling now... :p One other thing to mention, which some of you might not like, is that some of the stats have been messed with. For instance the damage scale has been increased, so the keyblade is unbalanced compared to regular sabers or weapons. Other than those few things, I'd definitely recommend this keyblade to collectors. Definitely one to add to the list. ~Inyri




Different Itemcones | 2.31 MB

spawn points. To tell the truth, they never really bothered me. But it annoyed the author, so here we have a couple different effects to choose from. Coming at you in four colors each for four styles, you get the Item cone changer. You get to choose from multicolored, red, blue, and green cones with effects including lightning, particle, rings, and fire. I myself like the ring effect, because it almost looks like a teleport effect, while I think the lightning effects could use a bit more body to the bolts. Mainly because the bolts look like very thin legged spiders. But anyways, this is a cool little pack, and remember, you can only have one in your base folder at a time. ~Zach




Nina - Genesis | 31.1 MB

advances. However, it didn\'t quite tickle me that much. I will start by saying that this was a well-developed SP mod, and it shows given the conviction of the team responsible for it. The voice actors were decent. I only played a little fraction of it, given time constrictions, and from what I\'ve gathered, the cutscenes were voice-acted. On terms of the actors, most were decent. I say decent because most didn\'t seem to emote enough. I felt as if I were trapped within a world of teenagers, rather than a HORDE OF PEOPLE THAT ARE OLDER AND HAVE BEARDS! Now, the storyline revolves around a secret abandoned imperial project that \"Nova Unit\" has been assigned to. Nova Unit, in turn, assigns it to our protagonist. I believe the unit was mentioned in the previous chapters, so play the previous to understand their malevolence! On a theatrical note, allow me to say this: I wasn\'t pleased with the sudden plot-twist so early. Granted it\'s an important one, but it seems WAY too early to just bring that in. It would have seemed appropriate at a more key location instead of an apartment. Also, what was the point of the stormtroopers? Random people just attacked, seemingly guarding no one important. I don\'t know, perhaps just for target practice...*SCYTHES a stromboli trooper* I just didn\'t see the point at that time in the story. Overall, I suggest you all offer a prayer to the download god so that it may grant you this SP mod. This mod was rather entertaining. It also reminded me that the SP AI is much more smarter than I remembered... Download if you hate humans or if you want to kill time in SP. - Averus Retruthan




Crazy,S Mode | 12.67 MB

funny, yet confusing version of single player. Why is it confusing? Simple - only some parts of conversations have been replaced, so the sound/speech is really dodgy. But if you can keep track of it, it can be rather funny. :p This mod lives up to its name, it makes your game crazy. Oh, and one requirement for this mod is that you play as a male character. ~Zach

Dual-Phase Lightsabers | 8.81 KB

find that error. Anyways, to my utter bewilderment, this is meant to work in single player. Scary stuff, huh? Anyways, I testing this out in single player, and it worked just fine! Yay! Anyways, this mod basically gives you Dual-Phase sabers. What is this? This means you can change the length of your saber blade. Naturally, you can\'t really do that in JA, so the author has made it so that the saber length changes when you switch saber styles. Anyways, this does just that, but it only lets you use two saber styles: fast and strong. When you use fast style, you get a regualr saber, but when you switch to strong style your blade length doubles. Yep. Watch where you swing that bad boy. Please keep in mind that this does not work for multiplayer. But it does show up in the multipalyer menu. You can make your sabers not usable in multiplayer by putting this in the saber file: \"notInMP 1\". ~Zach




BaseJKA | 1.24 MB

like that's about all it does. Doesn't seem to change gameplay much, except where perhaps it should be. To quote the changes listed in the read-me: Quote:- Fixed /say command buffer overflow. - Fixed server command buffer overflow. - Fixed problems while voting in TFFA. - Fixed the black name, now ^0 makes your nick black, no more need to ^^0. - Fixed big messages color replacement bug. - Fixed the sliding while standing on top of someone. - Now taunts are allowed in all gametypes. - While dueling you can't collide with anyone outside the duel. - Multiple FFA Private Duels. - Private Duels in TFFA Allowed. - Added /announce command to enable admins to print big messages in the center of player's screens. - Added the possibility to have taunts in all gametypes. This mod also adds several new admin cvars, in case you don't like one or more of these changes and would like to turn them off. Sounds like it could be handy for those server admins who find that mods like JA+ just change too much for their tastes. ~Inyri[/quote] There are various bug fixes, new admin commands, new admin cvars, and a little bit more. Here's the new features. [quote]- Dismemberment Enhancements - Full Dismemberment is possible now. - Anti Model Hack System - This pretends to prevent players from using exploited skins that make body parts invisible. - Enhanced match mode play - Using player "ready-up" to force syncronized matches. Supported in all team modes (TFFA, SIEGE and CTF). - Several callvotes issues fixed. - The callvotes can now be disabled in parts. - The /callvote kick changes to /callvote kick . - The /tell command now accepts a player substring. - Improved some issues in callvotes. - Player without a name not allowed, even if they hack the name with just colours. Example: name “^1^2^3^4^5^6^7”, this name and other names using only colours are not allowed. - Fixed some siege bugs (example: After we die, when we wait to respawn if we do /kill we die again). - Fixed some exploits in snaps and rate usage, now they are limited by sv_minRate and sv_minSnaps. - /kill spamm not allowed. - Improved some bots issues, and now they can accept duels. - Added /help command[/quote] So, if you love basejka and want it improved, then download this. Or, if you're a server admin who doesn't like JA+, then you might like this. ~Zach




Blur Sabers | 119.13 KB

two lines. Here is the Original review: [quote]WARNING! First of all I just wanted to say that the sabers in this mod move extremely fast, and flash around the screen a lot, so if you have any problems with flashing or strobe lights, then this mod might not be for you. Well, this is a very interesting little saber mod, I know I’ve seen super long staff sabers before, but I don’t recall seeing dual super long staff sabers (i.e. one in each hand) although it may have been done before, I’m not sure. :S These sabers are very powerful, and because they are so long and move so fast, they seem to be able to easily block any normal saber. I tested this with a server full of annoying bots and I was able to beat any of them within several seconds of swinging these sabers around! Besides that there’s not really much more I can say, these sabers are unusual, and certainly effective! wink There were a few small bugs that I noticed here though. To select the super long blades, simply select the guardian hilt in the dual or single saber menu. However once you put this .pk3 in your base folder, you can no longer select the Guardian hilt in the staff saber menu. :S One other thing I noticed is that the animations seem a bit jerky at times, but that’s probably as a result of modifying the sabers. All in all though a cool little mod here! smile I look forward to seeing more files from this author in the future! Just remember though If you have any problems with flashing or strobe lights, then this mod might not be for you! ~Nozyspy~[/quote] As I said, the only changed I see are that you can now select the default sabers in the menu, and a few more bugs. The first I discovered was when you use the "single" saber. You can't get the medium stance, and when you go to red, it sheathes one blade. When you attack, the second blade comes back, but to get back to blue, you have to change style, and second blade is sheathed, then while it's sheathed, change stance (hope I made sense!). The second thing I found was when you have dual sabers, and use the Main+Alt attack kata thingy, your character freezes. No force regeneration, can't walk, can't attack, can only spin. I personally don't like this, all it does is change a few numbers around to make fights even more mindless, and ridiculously easy. But if you're into that kind of thing... -Red

PERFECT EP3 Blades (no kidding) | 93.97 KB

[i]impossible[/i] to make a saber blade that is a perfect respresentation of Episode III. Just stop trying, guys, or give your mods a more appropriate name. With that said, these blades are okay, though I have to admit they\'re not much different than most of the other Episode III blades I\'ve seen. They\'re kind of a mix between pointy and rounded, so maybe that\'s a positive compromise. As with all good Episode III blade mods the blade cores are very crisp and not fuzzy or blurry, which keeps in the style of the prequel saber blades. ~Inyri




Mkem\'s Scepter Of Ragnos | 1.62 KB

to... I think. I admit to not having played SP in months, but it sounds better at least. It would be incredibly unfair to use in multiplayer, but it might make a good gag, or if you just want to have a really long saber kind of like the sceptor was give it a try. ~Inyri




Exile\'s Saberpack | 2.27 KB

dagger, a VERY short and narrow saber, sped up. Not very practical at all. The third is Rapier Saber, a thin saber. I didn\'t really like these, they aren\'t bad, they just weren\'t really anything new. Maybe if the author changed the shape, or trail... something... Good effort, just try to do more next time. -Red




Red Shield | 59.04 KB

red better than green, check it out. Need I say more? ~Inyri




Mkem's Saber Pack | 1.74 KB

really just vary the blade length, with some being reasonable and some being outrageous. One problem I noticed with the Sith Sword was that the lightsaber hum remained, because the author didn't edit it out. Maybe you guys don't care, but I think that'd drive me nuts. To fix it, however, is as easy as adding the line " soundloop "none" ". ~Inyri




Nova Unit | 29.26 MB

[i]attempt[/i] single player mods, much less do them and do them well? This is the next installment in the popular Nina series, following her exploits as a member of the elite Nova Unit, a law-enforcement team meant to ease the burden on the Jedi Order. Nina's duty in this segment is to infiltrate a base on the planet Torukia which has been taken over by Remnant forces. The map itself is well-made, and you will find that you'll have to get all the way to one end of the map [i]just[/i] to open a door near the very beginning. There are some helpful hints in the read-me, so make sure to check those out. Larry McBruce says that this map was inspired by the Ghost in the Shell series, so I can not appreciate any similarities between the two as I have never seen Ghost in the Shell. Maybe some of you guys can recognize those similarities, however. The feel of the map is consistent throughout, and the texturing is wonderfully done. The base has a very dark atmosphere, but not so dark that you can't see. The lights within the map seem to be well-placed, and each light has a distinct source, and even better is that the size of the light entity reflects the size of the light source. There are no little light bulbs casting light across a hundred-foot stretch of corridor. You'll probably want to rely on your lightsaber throughout this map, as there are few ammunition packs to pick up, though you could keep yourself well-equipped from the blasters the stormtroopers will drop. There are also very few shield and health pickups, so keep yourself healthy if you want to survive. There are a good number of enemies throughout the map, mostly stormtroopers, but occasionally you will be faced with a dark jedi or saber droid. And if all that wasn't enough to peak your interest, the final battle features Battle of the Heros music. I'm sure that will interest some of you. I did find one potentially large bug. After I defeated the final enemy, it locked up. The cutscene finished and went to a black screen where the music just kept on going. I could still access the console, however. It doesn't seem like a conflict with another mod, either, because I emptied out base and it still occured. However by this point you've basically experienced everything there is to experience. If anyone else can confirm this error, maybe we can talk Larry into a quick fix for it ;) Even despite the bug, I strongly recommend a download. It's not every day we're blessed with single-player mods. New Textures: Yes New Models: Yes New Music: Yes Bot Support: No ~Inyri




Open Jedi Project Basic | 2.64 MB

this new release of OJP fixes this error by allowing this holster effect to be customized on a model-to-model basis. That's not the only thing it fixes, either. It fixes several technical problems, such as errors with death messages, errors with bots, and some errors I outright can't understand, and also enhances some current features like the RGB sabers and, as I mentioned, the holstered weapons. Looks like the OJP team is really putting the pedal to the metal to get these fixes and enhancements out, so if you've never tried OJP I strongly recommend you take a look! Especially if you're a modder, because OJP gives you some features you may have always wanted, but never had. Read both the read-me and the changelog for more detailed information on Open Jedi Project and the changes/additions in this version. ~Inyri




Super Perfect EpIII Blades | 886.99 KB

going to get any better than this without some serious changes to more than just images. So we can probably say, for now, that this is the closest we\'re going to get. The author recommends you use these blades with dynamic glow, but to be frankly honest they\'re even [i]farther[/i] from perfect if you use it. The glow is much too large with dynamic glow, so [i]I[/i] would recommend using them normally. Even normally the glow seems a little over the top, not to mention the colors are a little too saturated if you want to really go with what was in the film. The blue lightsabers in Episode III, which are quite possibly the most prominent color (considering Obi-wan and Anakin both had blue lightsabers) is completely the wrong color. In the films it is more of a cyan, so if the author [i]really[/i] wanted this to be \"super perfect\" he should have noted that and changed the color accordingly. Other than that, everything seems okay. The core seems about the right size and shape, depending on which pictures you look at, although I don\'t claim to be a prequel lightsaber expert. However as far as Episode III blades go, these definitely wouldn\'t be a bad choice. ~Inyri




KOTF Clan Saber Hilts Pack | 2.4 MB

this pack contains some unusual and pretty unique saber hilts. Sure we have all seen saber hilts with maybe an extra saber or two added on. I saw one once that was like an X with a saber blade extending out of each arm of the X! I’m sure it would be interesting trying NOT to slice your legs off whilst fighting with that…ehmm anyway…These saber hilts are actually letters! There are five hilts here, one normal hilt, and four ‘letter’ hilts which spell out the initials of the Knights of the Force clan, or KOTF. What I think is great about these is the way the extra saber blades have been added. There’s smaller ones on each edge of the letter, and then the full size central beam that goes straight up like normal. For instance, with the letter O hilt, there are six little beams that make up the O, and then a seventh beam which goes straight up like normal. Here I am blathering on trying to describe it in words! It’s probably just easier to look at the screenshots below! ;) Anyway…a very cool little mod here. I know people sometimes don’t like clan-related files. But this really is a unique (as far as I know anyway) and quite unusual saber mod. Give it a download if you like what you see! :) ~Nozyspy~




Super Perfect Episode III Blades | 119.79 KB

Perfect Episode III Blades\" tries to replicate the blades seen in \"Star Wars: Episode III—Revenge of the Sith,\" and it\'s probably the most accurate blade mod for Episode III, but just not good enough. Episode III\'s blades are designed slightly differently from other films in the saga. They are fairly thick in core and in glow, the end of the blade arcs to a medium-sharp point, and the glow arcs the same way, with the tip of the core and the glow ending at generally the same place. All previous mods fail to achieve accuracy to the film is in the shape of the glow. None have been able to make the glow go to the right place at the tip of the blade; they all extend far past where it should be. This mod, unfortunately, does not correct this problem. The core ends in a point, and then the glow goes too far out and ends with too round a tip. (See diagram in screenshot three for visual explanation.) It\'s a common problem that no one seems to fix, but aside from that, there are still good features of the mod. The proportions of the blades are, as I said, the most accurate I\'ve seen in width of core and glow. However, there is another problem that only this mod seems to have, and that is that it just doesn\'t look good in-game. Perhaps the images that he used were low quality, or his resolution was too high, but, although they are not blurry, they are not smooth as they are in other mods and in the film. The blades seem to have rough edges where there should be clean curves. They looked, to me, as if the blades were being displayed on an old television with static problems. They didn\'t hit the mark. Sorry, but \"Super Perfect Episode III Blades\" stop quite short of perfect. They just need to look better, and I don\'t know if the engine doesn\'t allow it, but will someone ever try to make truly accurate Episode III blades? This mod gives me hope, but until next time, I can only wait. —Ra-Kom




Deeper Jaden-Male Voice | 8.74 MB

recorded his voice over at RavenSoft) or a robust young boy. To hear a weak \"hah!\" whenever Jaden rolls (or jumps in single-player) was dreadful, because from what I could see, an eighteen or twenty year old guy was running around with a child\'s voice. This mod attempts to fix that. There are times when a voice can be overdone, and this mod does indeed overdo it. I am reminded of Darth Sidious, whose voice was way overdone in \"Star Wars: Episode III—Revenge of the Sith\" from an academic standpoint right after he had defenestrated Windu and I was crying for Mace and Palpatine was renaming Anakin \"Darth Vader.\" There were too many echoes, and it looked and sounded unnatural. The same is with this mod, as the author made Jaden sound like a metallic Desann. It\'s way too low for his \"nice young man\" appearance. A boy\'s voice should technically only drop about an octave when it changes, and Jaden, taking many years more than most normal people, had it drop what sounds like four or five octaves. It just doesn\'t fit. Oh well, it had to change eventually, for better or for worse. —Ra-Kom




MasterHill\'s Sabers mk3 | 432.16 KB

and all of you, should treat it based on its own merit. So the real question is: are these blades better? I would say [i]yes[/i], but as always it\'s a matter of opinion. The blades are much cleaner and crisper, removing the colored blur around the white blade, and making the contrast between the blade core and the glow much more pronounced, as it was in the original trilogy (Was it the same in the prequels? I wasn\'t paying attention. Obi-wan was too hot.) I find it to be a welcomed change, as when you compare the old blades to these they almost look like a child drew them with a crayon! No offense to Raven, of course ;) However I must say, the dynamic glow the author used in his picture is just too much for me. I like \'em, but I don\'t want to be blind! ~Inyri

Tavion of course died, being the wimp she is, but Desann lasted quite a while and finally put the finishing touches on the ol' farm boy.

However if you [i]do[/i], or have some other use for a beefed up Luke NPC, give it a try. ~Inyri




The Ancient Threat Episode I: The Orthand Mystery | 57.44 MB

just don't have time for such complicated levels! Honestly I love them. The mapping is great, the levels are really tricky (or I'm really dumb... :p), an the voice acting is even pretty good. I realized halfway through I had my subtites off, and since the person on the other end of the comlink is basically speaking jibberish I was wondering why I was confused. I'm going to let the screenshots speak mostly for themselves in terms of the architecture of the maps in this Single-Player mod. The maps themselves are tricky to get around. Especially that first one. I don't know how many times I died before I finally turned my brightness up, though that removed some of the challenge. I would have appreciated something more of an introductory cutscene, to find out a little bit more about our main character, but all in all it seems well thought out and well completed. It's no easy task to complete each level, and that's part of the appeal. Definitely worth a download. As soon as I get a few spare minutes I'm going to go finish up those last three levels ;) ~Inyri

Each colour changes your UI and the colour of the sparks that come off your saber when you hit somthing. Also they all change your shield colour when you get hit. The different colours all come with their own artistic loading screens which have been included in the download if you wish to use them for something else. The only possible downside is that you have to swap pk3\'s around if you want to change the colour but to be honest how often do you want to change your UI colours? -TheSpike-

Prequel Saber Blades & Colors | 29.42 KB

Lightning Saber Mod | 197.8 KB

little differently. Lightning instead of fire. This one is a bit more appealing since there seems to be more going on with the shape. *shrug* It\'s a saber mod. Either you like it or you don\'t.

Episode I and II Saber Mod | 106.91 KB

can see the subtle changes, none of them really register to me unless they are completely new looks. Still, when you are fighting, do you really stop to look at the enemy’s saber color? Granted, if you have a mod that makes it on fire or something to that extent, you notice, but beyond that it really doesn’t matter. And that takes us to this mod. The author claims to have spent days re-watching the Star Wars films in order to find the “perfect” colors. But all there really is to do is to “colorize” the image in Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro. That’s it. This sort of thing would take a day at most. Still, I do give him major props if he really did spend the time he claims in his readme doing this. To the author’s credit, he also added a new splash screen. This looks pretty cool, and helps give the mod a “bigger” feel. Still, I don’t know if the subtle changes are worth the download. I’d give this a 7/10. New Sounds: Nope New Colors: Yup Special Effects: Nope ~Wassup1444465

Lugormod *Windows - Linux* | 1.55 MB

DOCUMENTATION WHATSOEVER. I didn\'t even know what kind of mod this was until I installed it. Do you have any idea how frustrating that is? Well, I did manage to find some info about the mod on their forums. This is a mod that will allow you to customize gameplay a bit and has some admin commands for controlling players in your server. You can make bots say whatever you want, you can throw a player in \"jail\", you can strip a player of all weapons, force, items ... everything, you can disallow voting from a certain player, you can disable pickups, there\'s something called \"king\" mode and a bunch of other stuff. Do I like this mod? Meh. It\'s difficult for me to give an opinion on multiplayer mods anymore. They all seem the same to me at this point. One big difference between this mod and the others is that there\'s a version for Mac/Linux. ~AmosMagee[/quote] Lugor STILL hasn\'t included a documentation but he has included various bug fixes (The last version wasn\'t stable), he stated in the readme \'There is no documentation for this mod, you have to figure pretty much everything out for yourself\' It\'s kinda hard to work everything out with very little info and so I did try it out in game and it adds an RP style of gameplay to JKA using credits, jailing, occupations, etc. There\'s not really much to say about this mod except if you like RP you could enjoy it, it adds a few emotes and commands and you\'ll probably enjoy it more with a few of people around. Oh and it makes bots smarter, they actually ask to duel you and they say weird things, I thought the bots had become possessed or something when Luke asked to duel me lol. I don\'t really suggest downloading it unless you want to host a lugormod server (and if you do, I suggest you look at the lugormod forums for explanations on how to use it). If you want to play it I say just join a lugormod server there’s quite a few on the JKA server list now. In your next version Lugor include a documentation on how to use it :P New Features: 7/10 Ease of Use: 5/10 Documentation: 0/10 (No documentation) Rating: 6/10 -Rink

xMod | 1.64 MB

I\'ll let the reviews of the staff before me do most of the speaking. [quote] Lol this is becoming a chain quote! [quote] Wade\'s review of the last version of Xmod: [quote] xMod, a mod I\'m sure many of you know from the JO days is back, it\'s one of those useful server side mods that not only help out admins but also make the game more enjoyable in many cases. Things such as x_flipkick will make many people happy who enjoy being able to flip kick while x_profanity_check will please many admins who want to cut out profanity in their servers. One I do NOT like though is x_jawa_model as there is nothing wrong with that model anymore and I will be getting peaved if I go on servers to find it is disabled! I went to their site to help me get an insight to the mod and I came across this (admittedly lengthy for a review) \"What is xMod2?\", I think this is a very good way of summing up just what it is, better than what I can do! [quote] What is xMod 2 you ask? Well it\'s simple. Back in early 2002, Raven and Lucasarts teamed up to create one of the best games in Star Wars history, Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. The game brought a unique mix of Star Wars and Competitiveness. Players could play for their liking of Star Wars, or for their thirst for gaming in First Person Shooters. It was a game that developed into a fast paced shooter game filled with innovativeness not seen before in the PC world. A year later... Raven\'s game Jedi Outcast began to die as more and more news came out about their upcoming release Jedi Academy. Everyone in the JO community was psyched. The month of the release came, then the week, then finally the day. Many gamers rushed to the nearest PC Store hoping for an even better game than Jedi Outcast, with new and improved gameplay mechanics and more. What they got was nothing more than Jedi Outcast + eyecandy. Jedi Academy was a disappointment for many. Not only did the first month include a non-functional Server Browser, but also players wouldn\'t go for the Jedi Outcast plus a few fancy, yet useless, moves. Not only that, but some of the most key moves of Jedi Outcast used to make combos was removed, and thus the only way to kill your opponent was holding Mouse1 and W.(Attack and Forward, if you use default keys) Enter xMod. When the SDK was released, xMod creator and pioneer =X=Master HeX went straight to work in an all night frenzy to restore some of the key components of Jedi Academy. xMod 2, the sequel to the amazing xMod of Jedi Outcast, now reunites players with gameplay that is not made for a person who has just picked up the game. xMod 2 neutralizes the gameplay in Jedi Academy, changing it to a game that is actually playable. All the options in xMod 2 are exactly that, optional. This allows for the most control over your server putting the admin back in the driver\'s seat. All in all: Raven failed us, but HeX has made Jedi Academy a game that can proudly wear the Jedi Knight series name, and has thus saved the series we have grown to love. Welcome to xMod 2. [/quote] [/quote] Now let me just start off with the screenshot there. See that? Down there? Yeah - that. This mod actually detects script users!? How cool is that?! Okay, so some of the other features. There\'s a new delay kick that will actually delay kicking a lamer from the server to show them the message for why they are being kicked. !!! There\'s a protection cvar, honor code enforcement, and freeze tag - not sure what that is cause I didn\'t test this extensively. But the most important things in this mod have to be the ability to unlock the forced turn in yellow dfa\'s! AAHHH! Cause, yeah, I hate JA\'s ydfa. And now you can stand on someone\'s head without slipping off!!! Okay, so that\'s not the greatest feature - but I like it! Y\'know, there\'s just too much stuff here to list. It\'s all in the readme and if you don\'t want to read that right now, go find a server with Xmod and try it out yourself! I\'m actually considering switching mods now. Hmm. Great work, guys! ~AmosMagee [/quote] There\'s even more options now and bug fixes now including a new way of specifying which admins have what commands available to them![/quote] Technical Data: Pros: 1. Read \'em and weep. ;) 2. Server mod! We need more/better ones of these, so we don\'t have to OMGWTFPH34RT3HL337L4M0RZ4NDM4L337H4XZ0RZSKILLS!!!1!!11. Cons: 1. N/A Rating: 10/10 JEDIofONE :mepimp:




Force Lev | 795.79 KB

of all, you need to have Jango Fett or Boba Fett for SP before using this mod. This mod will allow you to levitate as one of the bounty hunters without using Force. Also, when someone throws a saber at you, it will simply bounce off of you, doing no damage. According to the readme, to regain Force while levitating, you can swing your saber to regenerate Force, or grip someone who\'s using Absorb and you\'ll take their Force. Interesting, huh? Anyway, if you\'re looking for a little something new, try this mod out. :) ~AmosMagee




Chryonic\'s Sabers & Lightning (v2.0) Final | 1017.67 KB

blue saber. It\'s just blinding. The green saber seems to match the lightning that\'s included in this pack. It has more of a teal color to it. The orange and yellow sabers haven\'t changed much. The purple saber\'s core looks thinner and the red saber has a firey orange glow. So it\'s kind of a weird saber mod. The only consistancy I see between sabers is that they\'re all brighter. Now the lightning mod I kinda like. I suppose I like the idea of color-coodinating your saber with your lightning. In fact, I\'m surprised no one\'s made a mod like that yet. Anyway, all that I noticed about the lightning is the color change. There are no new sounds. So, if you\'re a fan of mini-mods, check this one out. Maybe you\'ll like the changes made with the sabers and the color of the lightning. [/quote] I suppose I didn\'t really need to take screenshots of the sabers myself, since the author included some greats screens already. However, I did want to show you guys the sabers side-by-side so you could see how different two of them are. And I don\'t really understand why that is. The orange saber has texture, while none of the others do. And the red saber (maybe the yellow one too) seems to have a thinner core. I have no idea if that was intentional or not. But anyway, the sabers do look great - and I\'m not one for saber mods. :P The trails are very cool and that\'s what Chryonic seems to focus on. I think the author succeeds in keeping this mini mod that includes matching lightning simple and understated. This final version is much better than your first. Great job. :) ~AmosMagee




Duelers/JA Mod 1.1 | 1.6 MB

yet, y\'know? And since I test these mods alone, all I can judge these mods by is how the play is with bots. I do have a lot to say about Dueler\'s Mod for JA though! Let\'s just start with the admin commands, since that is an important part of running a server. Of course, there\'s an admin password, but the great thing about the way this is set up is that you\'ll never have to worry about broadcasting the password in the server! I always encourage my admins to just modify their config files out of game instead of through the console because that reduces the risk of broadcasting the pass. In this mod\'s case, you just use a cvar to set the pass in your config file and you\'re always logged in when you join your server. There are some very useful commands including showmotd, which will show the player the \"message of the day\". There\'s \"origin\" and \"teleport\", which will give you your x, y and z coordinates and then you can teleport to any location on the map. \"Freeze\" and \"thaw\" are much like \"sleep\" and \"wake\" from the JAR mod, which will stop the subject and will not allow them to use their weapon or force and then thawing them will, of course undo that effect. \"Bring\" and \"goto\" are some helpful commands that will allow you to bring a subject to you, or help you find someone on a map and go to them. If someone comes on your server with an offensive name, you can easily rectify that with the \"rename\" command. Then, of course, there\'s the \"boot\" command which will kick someone off of your server. The only thing this mod is missing is the banning command that gives you a lot more room in the banned IP list, like the JAR mod. One of the coolest features that Dueler\'s has is the macro scanning feature. You can keep people off your server who use scripts to do special moves, which many of us find unfair and don\'t allow on our servers. Now the most important thing about this mod is that it changes the gameplay to make JA a bit more like JK2. The roll is back! Plus the author has tweaked the lunge and other attacks to make them a bit more skill-based. I only played with one bot with these new \"un-nerfed\" features and found that the fight lasted a bit longer. It always seemed to me like the sabering in JA was somewhat based on luck. This seems to remove that and give us back a bit of what makes JK2 so much more interesting. One of the big things about Dueler\'s mod is that when people are dueling on an FFA server, your duel won\'t be interrupted by those running by - they\'ll run right through you and you won\'t even see them. So you can keep focused. One of the coolest things added is the Duel Overtime which allows duels to finish before the map changes. There are a ton of new emotes added, most of which you\'ll recognize from JK2. Like the Superman pose, the beg, or grovel pose, kneel (or think), the dancing emotes, the surrender one, hug and there are a few new ones too. Check the list included with the mod to see all of the new ones. Also there\'s a clan chat feature which is very helpful, especially if you only have a few people who are admins, but want to chat privately with just your clan. All in all, this is a great mod. It\'s not too complex, but adds some great features and leaves out the unnecessary ones like in other mods. If you\'d like to learn more about the mod, download it here, or visit the site, which is hosted by at [/quote] I\'m actually surprised that Dueler\'s mod isn\'t more popular than it is. It\'s a great mod that just keeps getting better. Some of the newest features for version 1.1 include grapples and jetpacks. And there\'s an easily managable ban list. You can create custom votes for your server. There\'s a new force power rank and players can check to see the MotD while in game and if there are any admins available. Kicking and saber throws have been enabled for all stances and the author claims that saber collision and damage consistancy has been improved. Don\'t just go with a mod because it\'s what everyone else uses. Shop around. Try them all out. You may find that you prefer Dueler\'s mod after trying it. :) ~AmosMagee




X-Saber | 143.26 KB

However for those of you who enjoy the odd sabers, you\'ll like this one, I mean it even has a story behind it! [i]A saber that once belonged to the Kel Dor Sith Lord, Baret Kloopon. Like a saber staff but with two ignition points on each end.[/i] So there ya go, not only is it a saber, but it\'s a saber with SW type history and it\'s a free download so how can you turn that down eh? :p The hilt is somewhat plain though, having a very strange texturing that looks like wood perhaps (I went as far as to look at the JPG and still couldn\'t work it out). But there you have it, a 4 pointed, strangely textured saber that will be great for some of you while others will just not like it. Impossibly to please everybody though right? -WadeV1589-




Rampage Mod II (for SP) | 312 KB

level 3 jump, speed, push, pull and protect along with level 1 lightning - a pretty good mixture! You also get infinite primary ammo with limited secondary ammo. On top of that all (non light saber) NPC\'s have the Rampage Repeater (that is catchy you have to admit) but only 1 health (insane?!) So I loaded it up...and the first thing I noticed was my cursor had become a repeater, nice little touch! I found a pretty instant problem though, the very first mission of SP is impossible if you change from your lightsaber to start! You can\'t cut that bloody tree down with a repeater! Ah well after (re)starting that mission and going further, it was fun, everyone was easy to kill but man did they enjoy firing several rounds off at you first. It\'s nothing major but it\'s one of those true mini-mods that are fun once in a while. -WadeV1589-




The Last Hope Mod (v0.1.1) | 3.21 MB

closer look at this mod. One of the features that many people have requested in a mod would be the ability to scale your model. You\'ll find that in this mod. I can\'t say that I\'m all that familiar with NPC\'s and their behaviour, but the new commands in this mod for NPC\'s sounds very cool. You can make the NPC\'s follow you, attack wherever you\'re looking or have the NPC\'s defend your position. The author plans to add a command that will allow you to toggle dual weapons, but it\'s not in this version. Some other features include RGB sabers, several classes such as Shadowtrooper, Boba Fett and Emperor (though that one still has some bugs, according to the author). Vehicle weapons have apparently been fixed and vehicles limit has been set to 64. There are a bunch of other features - too many to list. Try this mod out and be sure to give feedback to the author. I\'m sure there will be many updates to improve upon this mod by SuperDindon. [/quote] Well, SuperDindon has updated this mod and now you can wield two weapons at one time! Probably something many of you have been looking forward to. The other features that seemed to be a big hit with everyone are still there, and improved upon. If you notice any bugs, feel free to post here to let the author know, but don\'t just say \"OMG fix teh bugs!\" Let the author know exactly what kind of bug it is, how you found it, etc. Oh, and be sure to read all of the documentation included with the mod before running to the author and telling him his mod sucks and that it doesn\'t work. :) I\'m sure we\'ll see more updates to this mod. ~AmosMagee

subtle, the sound’s aren’t a major change so it’s not likely that you will have any reason to dislike them. The blade appears to be marginally longer but not hugely noticeably as I try to show in the second pic. The glow on the blue saber seems to have been made brighter and larger and I try to show this in the first pic but again it’s nothing major. The black skin in the pic’s shows the original and the red skin shows the modified version. ~Wolf




Ancient Sabers (v1) | 140.29 KB

them more like, there\'s an electric thing going through them, then Electric Sabers works too. :) You\'ll kinda have to suspend your disbelief for these sabers - considering a saber can\'t really have a cracked and old look to it. I mean, the hilt can, but can a beam of light/energy ever look old? Methinks not. While I\'m not a fan of this mod, I can\'t really point out anything wrong with it. So if you like how it looks and you\'ve been searching for a new saber mod to try out - give this one a shot. There are no new sounds included, but the author did call this v1, so that implies there will be an update. ~AmosMagee

Good work with this mod! ~AmosMagee




Shadow Trooper Race | 8.64 MB

isn't a race, but either way, I thought having Jaden replaced with a Shadow Trooper was pretty cool. I mean c'mon, it COULD happen. ;) Aside from just the normal plain Shadow Trooper outfit, Thom has also provided the options to change the armor a little. So aside from just the plain armor, you can opt to have various parts of the armor removed, for example you can see his bare hands. Or you can go on the extreme side of the spectrum and have the Trooper's entire chest bare. And now for the final feature, something I found VERY cool. ;) Thom went through and digitally edited every single male Jaden sound so it sounds robotic and very much like a Shadow Trooper. The sounds are located in a separate pk3 so when you wish to use another male model, it won't sound robotic. On that note, I found the sounds also suited the Kel Dor male very well too, so that's like a double whammy right there. ;) Overall, I think this pack is very cool and definately worth getting. :) The sounds are an additional bonus that really add some realism to it (Unlike Raven and their human talking Rodian there... ;) ) and is a must have to your collection. :D -TiM




MasterHill\'s Sabers | 111.69 KB

reduced. I dunno if it\'s just me or not, but the saber looks a bit longer too. The saber itself seems to have a rounder shape to it and the little glow that\'s left, looks a bit fuzzier than normal. Is it just my eyes, or does the saber also appear to have somewhat of a wave around the edge? There are no new sounds included with this saber mod. All that was changed was the look of the saber. So if you\'ve tested all the saber mods that are available and you still haven\'t found what you like - maybe this is the one for you! ~AmosMagee




Mutant Rancor Vehicle | 2.88 KB

bryar pistol, and you're too high up to hit people with your saber. And you can't even get on if you dont have a high force jump, or nearby ledge :( So it's a very pointless mod, because you cannot actually DO anything with it. However it's extremely fun running bots over, and generally being bigger and better than all your opponents. ;) The second annoying (and slightly odd) thing, is that your rancor never stops moving its legs. It always looks like it's going forward, but doesn't move unless you are pressing the forward key. To add to this, it does stop, but only when you slice it. What kind of odd behaviour pattern is that :D This mod is a very nice idea, and although it has its fair share of flaws, in both single and multiplayer, the author has promised that more features will be added for the next version, and theat bugs will be fixed. I hope so, because if they are, I can see this becoming a cool mod. So, it's not quite ready yet, and it is rather big for a great deal of maps, but fun nontheless. A very cool idea which has been fairly well converted into a mod, and with the next releases I hope to see great things from it! ;) ~Szico VII~




Episode 2 Blades | 270.16 KB

aren\'t that noticable, but the blue looks nicer :). The blades are also ever-so slightly thinner, and look a little different, but unless you look hard enough, you really wouldn\'t be able to tell the difference. :( The main thing about this mod is probably the new saber sounds (which are always welcome as part of a saber mod - Most people dont bother with new sounds) Now, although they are taken from the movie, they\'re obviously louder than the other lightsaber sounds, and stick out a bit. At first they\'re great, but they get annoying after a while, however you can always remove the sounds and keep the new colours, because the TimK has set up the file so you don\'t have to delete the whole file, just bits of it. :) The other thing about the sounds is that they sound a little \'obviously recorded\' if you see what i mean, they have a little static in some of them, and some of the lightsaber clash sounds sound more like explosions :r. Despite this, this is still a nice change from the original sounds and sabers, and for any Ep 2 fan they are a MUST-Download, because it\'s very accurate mod to the film :) ~Szico VII~




Sith Scepter | 861 B

scepter when she was carrying it, I really don\'t like it here, made available for anyone to use. The scepter was never made to be a saber - and especially not a saber like this. It\'s impossibly long and unwieldy. I don\'t know how anyone can walk around with something that big in their hand, let alone play with it! Making the scepter into a saber was a good idea, but for goodness\' sake, make the saber smaller. What\'s the point of fighting with a saber like that? Just one sweep of your scepter and everyone\'s dead. Bah. (Okay, I didn\'t test that, so maybe that won\'t happen - but still!) I just think this is ridiculously long and it\'s pointless to play with a saber like this. ~AmosMagee




Straight Sabers | 76.92 KB

look at the first screenshot, which is of the original saber and then the second one which shows all of the colors of these new sabers. Do you see much of a difference? Well, maybe it\'s just this cold I have, or I\'ve been looking at screenshots of sabers too long. :) ~AmosMagee




OJP (Basic) | 112.49 KB

team had in mind for the mod. It changes many aspects of multiplayer gameplay, as well as smoothing out the way multiplayer mapping works (and touting that multiplayer mapping and singleplayer mapping are much more flexible - not to mention powerful cooperative modes are now possible). When I first read the readme and looked at this mod, I didn\'t know what I was getting into. But after checking out all the features when all 4 files are installed, I can safely say it\'s an excellent job. Find out why with the next few files ^_^. - Chrono




Shadow Rage Sabers | 202.81 KB

more real than the game ones to me and I'm not a huge Star Wars fan but I do prefer these sounds. The effects of the saber have also changed, the trail they leave behind is far more torn up...this I do not like, a saber is a solid beam of "hard light" as it were - I'm sure people will scream to correct me on what they actually are now! - but in this mod it's like a comb run through sand, it leaves trails that don't match a solid blade. -WadeV1589-




Mutilation Mod | 32.34 KB

see an abundance of mutilation. So he simply set the probabilities to 30 or 40 for all of the npc\'s. I played around with the mod a little, and I didn\'t see any difference at all. Maybe because this is meant strictly for single player? I don\'t know. In any case, if you want to give this mod a try, it\'s not a huge download, so go ahead. :) Then come back here and tell us what you thought of it! ~AmosMagee




Jedi Knight: Racing (Update) | 5.91 MB

for the game! One of the features of JA that I think we all looked forward to was the use of vehicles, like swoops. It didn't take long for Chrono to give birth to the idea of JK Racing! Well, why not? So add to those new game types, JKR - JK Racing, where you and your friends spawn onto a large race track, set in Tatooine where four swoops await you. Jump on one of the swoops available and speed off down the raceway. Swerve in-between large pillars, take sharp turns around a rock, then either follow the arrow around another turn, or risk plummeting to your death by taking the short cut over a deep chasm. Defeat your opponents by being the fastest and reaching the finish line first, or by being the most deadly and just doing away with your competition. Once all of the swoops are gone, just restart the map to have four more. Or, according to the readme, you can just enable cheats on your server before starting up this map and then spawn as many swoops as you need for a good race. (Oh, and there's rumor of a hidden swoop with guided rockets, but that's all I can say about that.) The map is obviously Tatooine. The track itself is challenging and fun. Is it much to look at? Well, who the heck is looking at their surroundings when they're trying to stay alive in a race like the ones that'll take place on this map!? I love this concept. When testing this mod/map with the others, it was just, so much fun. I can't wait until others make more maps like this to add to the JKR game type. "Wait! I don't know how to make maps that will spawn NPC Vehicles into JA Multiplayer maps!" You don't!? Well, lucky for you, Chrono has included a very detailed tutorial with his mod and map! All you need to know is the basics of making a map to be able to make your very own JKR map! I'm sure there are already some concepts of a JKR map of Coruscant, where we'll be riding swoops high and low and in and out of buildings. Who will be the first to recreate the Podrace track from Episode 1? There are so many possibilities now with Chrono's mod. Great work, I look forward to seeing more of Chrono's JKR maps and more from the community! Bot Support: No New Textures: No New Music: Yes Game Types: Um, JKR (JK Racing) ~AmosMagee[/quote] The biggest, and most noteworthy change in this update is that Chrono has found out how to make the swoops respawn themselves. This makes the mod fully functional, without cheats! But then again, that doesn’t mean you won’t need cheats if you want to see something… special? :D I’ve been with this mod since it’s early days, and it is just wonderful to see it blossom as it is right now. I noticed something that could become a problem. I moved one of the swoops not too far from the starting line, and destroyed it, right? Well, 2 of the other swoops also caught on fire and exploded. Well, due to the swoops respawning, this resulted in an endless cycle of the swoops spawning, catching fire, and exploding. I’ve included a few screenshots below to show this. Maybe in the next update, if it’s possible, delay the time between the destruction of one machine and the spawning of the next? Also, if you wanted to have organized races, then you’ll have to dig around, play around, or find some way to not allow the vehicles to move until after like, a 5 second countdown or something? Maybe it’s not possible, maybe it is. Either way, if this is to become a serious thing, then it will be necessary. ;) I really like this mod, and it could be one of the top mods for JKA as it is! But of course, there is always room for improvement. So, I look forward to even more updates and upgrades, and soon, maps! For all of you, like myself, who wish the best for this mod, should step up and help the cause by making some darn maps! Chrono’s tutorial is very detailed, and should help you to get on your feet making a JKR map. I guess what I’m getting at, is this is a simply [b]wonderful[/b] first modification for JKA. I bet Raven is kicking themselves for not having thought of this. Keep up the great work, Chrono. :) ~Lord Griever~ [b]Bot Support – No New Textures – No New Music – Yes Game Types – Um, yeah, still just Jedi Knight Racing[/b]




SkyLine Menu | 93.34 MB

apologies to the author, the readme did not make it clear that the .pk3 should be in your gamedata/japlus folder to work and so the bugs and errors I wrote about in the original review were only as a result of not having the file in the correct folder! I have amended the review below! Well, first off, let me just way; wow. I don’t think I have ever seen a Menu Mod as comprehensive and as awesome as this is, it isn’t just a re-skin, it is a complete overhaul of the menu interface making it look, feel and work completely different than before. Obviously the first thing you notice is that great looking hi-res animated background on the main menu as well as the 2.5D effect menu buttons, but there are a lot more cool features. My favourite has to be the way you can preview a skin before using it using the preview window to the right of the selection menu, very handy! The saber selection menu also looks very slick and the JA+ saber RGB menu (as well as the skin RGB menu) are great to play around with! Now the author mentions in the readme that this was designed to work with JA+, as I mentioned above, you will need to put the .pk3 in your gamedata/japlus folder for it to work correctly when you load up JA+ from the mods menu ingame. It does not make this clear in the readme, which is why I was having some problems with the mod before; I was putting it in the wrong folder! The mod will mostly work on Base JKA, but some features like the model viewer and RGB sabers will not work. I have to say, [b]this is definitely well worth a download[/b], the menu graphics are very slick and high-res and I liked the little touches like the moves list button being added to the character menu and the animated main menu background. I would definitely rank this as one of the best, if not the best menu mod I have ever seen! If you need any further convincing to give this a try, just have a look at the video below. One thing I would like to see in any future versions is an awesome HUD to go with the rest of this great graphic work, I think that would round the mod off very nicely. That and don’t forget to mention in the readme next time that you need to put this in your gamedata/japlus folder and not gamedata/base! I feel rather embarrassed I didn’t figure that out myself! xD Keep up the excellent modding SWGalaxy Team! I really look forward to seeing more from you in the future! :D ~Nozyspy~




Dark Forces 2 HUD | 186.8 KB

the plain old base JKA HUD to look like the HUD in the original Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight. The HUD itself is accurate to the original, though much higher resolution of course and with an addition or two, such as the saber style indicator. So, if you fancy a change from the usual JKA HUD, or are a fan of the original Jedi Knight then give this a download! As for me, I am feeling a bit nostalgic, so I might just go and re-install DF2: Jedi Knight and Mysteries of the Sith... ;) ~Nozyspy~ ***The main download link at the bottom of the page is currently not working!

SonofWindu's Custom Lightsaber Blades | 1.28 MB

you swing, I mean, the OJP team managed to make film accurate lightsaber blur effects, why not Raven? It would have made the game much more cinematic... Oh well. SonofWindu here brings us a new mod which rather elegantly gets around that problem by simply removing the glowy white smudge in the middle of the saber trail and leaving a simple faintly coloured 'swoosh' instead, which I think looks very cool. The screenies the author has supplied below should give you a pretty good idea of what it looks like! The saber blades have also been tweaked; now looking slightly fuller with deeper richer colours and a slightly pointier tip. All in all a nice little saber mod here, which may just usurp the saber blade mod which I currently use! Keep up the fine work! :) ~Nozyspy~ ***The main download link at the bottom of the page is currently not working! Please download from here instead!***




Force_Shuriken | 92.92 KB

have to admit, it looks pretty good even if at times it does look a bit like snow-flakes :p Despite that, it's a pretty neat mod and it will certainly be a big hit to all you Ninja enthusiasts. [quote]Are you a ninja? Are you a ninja wannabe? Do you have the Samuri and Ninjas pack? Do you have one of those t-shirts that states that you are a ninja? Do you just like sharp pointy objects? Then this is a mod for you. This is a lightning replacement that will turn your lightning into hundreds of shuriken. The electric hit effects have been changed to red to simulate blood. After all, you are throwing sharp impliments.[/quote]




Find Me! | 335.47 KB

cloaking device. Not only is it a fantastic looking design, it's barely visible, as a cloaking effect should be. However, even with the gloss, you can still be located. Some general cloaking tips: - Keep to shadowed/dark areas in the map to maximize invisibility. - Avoid bright areas, as the shader will make you easier to spot. - Make yourself a small target. Crouching or emoting a laydown will make you nearly impossible to see. - Corners and walls are your friend. If you can hug up against those, do it. Those above tips can work for the default cloak too, but this new cloaking is like cloak 2.0. Sadly though, it's sorta one of those mods that would only grant a competitive hindrance versus an edge. I'm keepin' it, though. Cloaks please me greatly. Well then...Ashura, I commend thee. The rest, get more moddery. - Averus Retruthan

Realm of Magyk TC MP Demo | 26.29 MB

a bit![/i] I’m not really a fan of Fantasy myself, though I can certainly see its appeal I have always been a Sci-Fi man at heart. That said I’m certainly not averse to some Fantasy themed JKA mods! And here we have just that; the interestingly named Realm of Magyk is a total conversion mod which aims to bring some Fantasy elements into JKA. What we have here is just the multiplayer demo, so I am sure the full mod while have a much wider scope than this, but still this is a pretty cool mod on it own! First off we have a nice new menu screen, which cleverly imitates the default menu with its scrolling text and lightsaber noises by replacing them with scrolling text on a literal scroll textured background and that lovely metallic sound of a sword being sheathed/unsheathed just like the lightsaber activation/deactivation noises in the default menu, it even has a little sword cursor instead of the lightsaber one! Speaking of swords, there are also some sword models included in the package and Inyri Forge\'s excellent Crossbow mod for added authenticity! Along with that theme there is also a re skinned reborn in chain mail armour from CID\'s Medieval Knights Reborn Replacement mod, which again just goes to show that even the much maligned Reborn can look cool again if given the right treatment! Then there are a couple of new maps, a duel map which is in a fairly clean and simple Medieval styled brick and wood building, and a larger FFA map which is modelled after an RPG type town with various buildings to go in and explore. There are also some long open fields south of the town where you can ride Taun Taun\'s... ok ok, so maybe that isn’t that authentic then, but nobody has to my knowledge ever made an actual horse mount (though there has been something close). This map is one area that does need quite a lot more work though, especially in the architecture/detailing and layout department. The buildings are too blocky and don’t really look like the kind of thatched wooden framed houses and other types of stone buildings that you would expect to find in such a town or village. There also needs to be a clearer layout, perhaps a town square surrounded by shops or houses and more defined streets. As for other improvements, I would suggest, if possible (I’m not familiar with the aspects of modding the menus) that you try and change the menu buttons and text to be more in line with the black and grey title banner at the top of the main menu, as the blue buttons stick out against the scroll textured background and the yellow letters are also quite difficult to make out at times against that background. All in all though I think this is a solid idea for a mod/total conversion and I look forward to seeing how the mod evolves and progresses, though as I said I think that the mapping side of things needs some more work in order to keep up with the grand scope of such a mod. Keep up the good work man, I hope to see more from you and this mod soon! :) ~Nozyspy~




Alternate Title Menu Video | 5.2 MB

years. What MagSul\'s mod does is replace the old video that appears in the center of the main menu for both singleplayer and multiplayer, with a brand spanking new one featuring Kel Dor Jaden battling a Rodian Jaden (paradox anyone?) using the animations from the Jaden Vs Alora final battle on Taspir III. Not only that but it removes the pesky grid over the video so now you can see it better too. Personally I think that fight sequence at the end of the Taspir level is one of the best looking and best animated in Jedi Academy, and its great to see a little snippet of it displayed on the main menu. The only complaint I have is that the video is quite pixellated, however I don’t know what kind of limitations there were on video size and quality, so it may be that this is the best that can be used in the main menu area. Nevertheless, this is a very cool little mod, be sure to give it a download if you like the look of it! :D ~Nozyspy~




Samus Aran Metroid HUD | 760.53 KB

slight disadvantage, as I have yet to play Metroid: Other M, yet. This hud was allegedly sculpted to mimic the HUD you see behind the helmet of Samus Aran, famed intergalactic bounty hunter. Now, looking at this thing, yes, it looks very much like a helmet Samus would lurk behind. Very sleek interior design, and the visor leaves plenty of space to see what's going on. And now, to point out exactly where everything is: [b]Health:[/b] That 100 at the upper left corner, and the white bar next to it represents your health. The bar does decrease as you take health damage. Very much like Metroid, indeed. [b]Shield:[/b] The four little blocks under the white bar. Usually those represent energy tanks, but this works well enough. No numeration for shield. [b]Force:[/b]Center Left. [b]Ammunition:[/b] Center Right [b]Saber Stance:[/b] Alright, now this is the trickiest one, strictly because this picture does NOT show it, and even if it did, it's a little faint to locate. When you pull out your saber, these small little "data blocks" of sorts appear at the top of your visor. These change in color according to the stance you have. As I said, they're VERY small, so don't be surprised if you miss them at first glance. The rest is all decoration. Overall, I'd say this is a keeper if you use weapons a lot. Even if you do use saber on occasion, and want to have options, you can(at least in JA+ I know you can,) bind a button like so: 1.) Press shift+` (~) to bring down the console. 2.) enter: "bind x cg_hudfiles !" 3.) Hit said button you bound the command to. This will allow you to freely change between your helmet hud and a stripped down JA hud, so you won't feel distracted by the hud's limiting view space in third person. I may just do that myself. I like feeling like I'm behind a helmet. Welp, nothing else to scream at you, so... ....bai now. - Averus Retruthan [b]P.S. - Bryar Replacement and reticle sold separately :([/b]

JK2 MP Character Sound Restorer | 3.57 MB

never had sounds to begin with.) What\'s that mean exactly? Well, now your old classic JK2 characters that were carried into JK3 no longer have to worry about screaming \"TAKE THAT!\" in typical boring fashion. More specifically: -Bespin Cop -Chiss -Desann(FINALLY...) -Galak -Jan -Jedi Trainer -Lando -Mon Mothma -Morgan -Rebel All those characters now have their voices back, although Galak seems to have his Exosuit voice rather than the regular voice. Sad, but since there wasn\'t much to work with, it happened. Unfortunately, this does not restore international voice sets. Sorry, gents :( Anyway, if you\'re like me, and want some JK2 pumped back into your game, you know what to do. - Averus Retruthan

Fixed Console Font | 15.13 KB

¼, ½, and ¾. Review: I saw a preview of this mod on the forums, so I can\'t say I\'m surprised to see it here. :P There isn\'t much I can say about this mod. It does as advertised, and without any compatibility errors. For those who are curious, this is possible because for some reason, the console font is stored in an image. (gfx/2d/charsgrid_med.TGA) At first I was concerned, because the default image was pure white and used an alpha channel, and on opening this mod, I saw the letters were part of the image. (Meaning it wasn\'t pure white anymore) But then I looked at the alpha channel, and was relieved. The font quality remains the same. A nice little addition to JKA, and certainly a must-have for anyone who cares about their console. ~Crazy? .>





Obscura (awesome game)...but I digress. For those who have no idea what I'm babbling about, here's what Wikipedia says: [quote]The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used (...) but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy[/quote] This [i]teaser[/i] pack contains a steampunkified weapon and a steampunkified skin. [b]Steamtrooper[/b] As you can see on screenshot #1, a very spiffy looking, slightly rusty, steampunkified snowtrooper. It's a separate skin, so it doesn't overwrite anything. Not to mention it has team support. My only possible gripe is the lack of stormtrooper sounds. Nice job though ;) [b]Starzapper[/b] As you can see on screenshot #2, this is a steampunk E-11 reskin. It comes with some very neat sounds & effects, and gives me a tendency to run off to the first server with guns enabled I can find. My only gripe? StarZapper.pk3 makes the Bryar blaster pistol go textureless; presumably a bug. Now go download if you like the way these look, or I shall be forced to smack you with a spoon. -Caelum




Weapon Pack | 4.5 MB

or anything was, but...I don't. Basically these just replace your guns shots with different Raven efx, overhauled force icons and menu, and...different noises. *sighs* Sorry, there's just a lot about this that's just so random, I don't even feel like I should continue on XD My best advice at this point is to just try it by yourself. It's so random it may entertain you. If not that, try it for the tusken sniper and the noghri staff.. - Averus Retruthan




Chat Icon Mod | 16.51 KB

suppose. As for others, well, it's really up to you if you wish to use it! As far as changes go, they changed it completely. Obviously when you're going for a unique and custom look, this is basically what you'd get. All the author really did to the chat icon was add in a logo with the clan tags and change the border of the chat icon to red. Other than that, nothing really changed. Since there is nothing else to go over for this, I'll just wrap up this review by saying that this isn't a bad chat icon if you ask me. It could use a little touching up here and there, but other than that, I think the author did a pretty swell job! All that is left to say is I hope I see more work from you, author! If you're looking for a unique chat icon or you're actually in , this is definitely worth a download. :) ~Syyrax




RC Style Sniper Scope and Effects | 398.4 KB

when a guy came in using force speed, picked up the flag and dashed back towards the door. He was moving at some speed, but I had just enough time to charge up my disruptor and vaporize him before he got through the door. I was quite pleased with myself! I'm sure some of you have much more impressive sniping stories however! ;) Here we have a mod for the disruptor weapon, one that not only replaces the scope graphics as the name suggests, but also the effects for the disruptor shot too, which came as a nice surprise, since neither the name or the readme mention this! The scope graphic (meaning the scope you see when you zoom in when using secondary fire mode) looks substantially better than original, and definitely more interesting! To be honest I cant remember what the sniper scope from Republic Commando looked like, but from what I can remember of the style of the graphics ingame, this has the right kind of style and colour about it. It also feels more like something you would see out of the scope of a sniper rifle. The new effects are also equally impressive; instead of the plain old orangy beam we now get a sizzling electrified blue beam, which looks somewhat more dangerous, certainly much more like a [i]disruptor[/i] beam anyway! Some new sounds for the secondary fire mode round this mod off nicely. All in all an excellent mod here! If you make a v2, perhaps you could reskin the disruptor rifle as well! *hint hint* ;) [b]New Sounds[/b]: Yes [b]New Effects[/b]: Yes [b]New Textures[/b]: No [b]New Model[/b]: No ~Nozyspy~

New Weapon Sounds - Battlefield 2142 | 7.3 MB

:D A lot of these sounded like they had come straight out of a Transformers battle! *bzzzzzzzzt* *pew pew* Although they didn't sound very 'Star Wars-y', they nevertheless fit pretty well and the author has done a good job of matching each sound effect to a particular weapon, so much so that none of the new weapon sounds sound out of place for the weapon they are used on. My favourite sound, I would have to say, is the one for the DEMP 2. For once it actually felt [i]cool[/i] to use the DEMP 2, which generally feels like a bit of a wimpy weapon. Now that’s quite an achievement! There are also new sounds for the Swoop Bike and AT ST, which is a welcome change. There was only really one issue I noticed, and the author mentioned this in his readme; the sounds for the Concussion Rifle are a bit quiet. Nothing which spoils the mod, but it would be nice if they were a smidgen louder! All in all a really nice mod here, one that really refreshes those tired old base JKA weapon sound effects. I imagine they would also be of great use to anyone who wanted to make a Transformers themed skin or weapon... Be sure to give this a download it you like the 'sound' of it! ;) ~Nozyspy~




Disco Lando's Lightsaber Effects Mod Pack | 1.03 MB

from looking in the .zip there are quite a variety of files to choose from which change various lightsaber sounds and effects. A full explanation of what all the various .pk3s do is in the readme, so I strongly recommend that you have a good read through it! Here is the list of .pk3s that the author included: [quote] [*] Removal of the green spawn/idle invulnerability shield (requires cg_rendertotexturefx 0). [*] Removal of the green damage shield. [*] New saber clash effects. [*] No saber sparks, no "blood" sparks. [*] New saber damage effect (localized electric flares when Sabers touch body parts - to replace the damage shield - so you know when you're dealing/receiving damage). [*] Round-tipped lightsaber blades with bolder but anti-aliased cores. [*] All new, painstakingly resampled authentic lightsaber sounds taken from digital copies of the Original Trilogy as well as other sources. [*] BONUS: Lightsaber color changing script. [/quote] Its still good to see new mod's which change the saber duelling experience of JKA though and make the sights and sounds more in line with that we all saw in the movies. I especially liked the new round tipped saber blades. I always thought the round tipped saber blades from Episode 1 and 2 were the best, I have never really liked the Blade tips as they are in JKA. I know there are other mod's which do this, but this mod bundles all the little ones into one pack, which saves time! The effect of the saber hitting flesh is also different, so now there is a sort of blue cloud instead of the purple cloud and sparks. I must say though that this looks a little odd, since I wouldn't expect someone's flesh to produce a weird plasma like blue cloud then it burns at the tip of my lightsaber! The saber clash/lens flare effect was definitely cool though, much better than the base JKA version! This mod also includes lots of new movie authentic sounds, again improving the realism of duelling. I agree with the author when he ponders why Raven didn't access Ben Burt's library of movie lightsaber sound effects when making JKA. But anyway, we have then now! There is also a .pk3 which removes the shield flare when you are hit and one that is supposed to remove the green bubble effect that appears around your character when you spawn. But you need to make an autoexec.cfg file which has the line "cg_rendertotexturefx 0" in it for this to work, which is a bit of a pain. To be honest I would have expected this to be included in the mod! Lastly, there are also some bonus sound files included in the .zip, although not included in the .pk3's. it appears you need to extract these to particular folders in your base directory, which again is a bit of a pain. Surely it would have been better to include these in the .pk3's? Anyway, overall this is a nicely rounded mod with plenty of things to help make your JKA experience more movie like. Fix those issues I mentioned above, that people for the most part simply wont want to be bothered with (making the autoexe.cfg for example) and this mod will be even better! :) Keep up the good work! ~Nozyspy~




[YOT] High Quality Levelshots Complete | 35.49 MB

will improve the gameplay, add features, improve the graphic quality and so on. I'm not focusing on throwing in things like a Cloud model, completely unrealistic saber trails and so on but keeping the core of Jedi Academy while adding features and improving on what's already there (both MP and SP). I plan on fixing some bugs in the game, removing the cap for how many mod's you can have, realistic dismemberment, and so forth. A site will be up in the next few months but if you're willing to help feel free to e-mail me or PM me on the forums. [/quote] Here we have the fifth and final batch of improved levelshots from Botdra. This here is the full monty, or if you are American 'the whole ball of wax' (you Americans and your odd phrases :P). This pack contains all the four previous level shot packs in on convenient .zip for those completists out there. As before, if you want the Siege Destroyer Bonus map and the MP Bonus maps to work, you will need to download them and have them in your base folder. You can find these files here: Siege Destroyer Bonus Map Bonus MP Maps As with all of Botdra's High Quality Levelshots mod’s, these .pk3’s will replace the rather poor quality Base JKA levelshots with nice new Hi-Res ones. The new levelshots have been taken from petty much the same angle as the originals and are in very nice high resolution and have dynamic glow on as well. Not only that but Botdra has evidently used his graphics card to force Anti-Aliasing on, so as well as being high resolution, all the edges are nicely smooth, with no jaggies to be seen. Overall a very nice series of mod's here Botdra, although, it may have been simpler just to release the full pack rather than five separate packs. I would very much like to see you give the JK2 levelshots (which are even worse quality than the JKA ones) a once over, so we can have nice high resolution levelshots for both JKA and JK2! *nudge nudge* ;) ~Nozyspy~




IG-88 Sounds | 674.69 KB

skin and not have any custom sounds. Well fear not, because Ownedbacon has decided to rectify this problem by making his own mod using sounds from Star Wars Empire at War: Forces of Corruption and making a file which adds these sounds into Last Wish's IG-88 model! All you need to do is put this .pk3 in your base folder along with Last Wish's file and hey presto, IG-88 will have some new custom sounds! All in all a great idea here, although it would have been nice if the IG-88 model had custom sounds from the start this issue has been fixed by this file here, which I suppose you could call a kind of 'patch'. If you fancy some IG-88 sounds to go with Last Wish's IG-88 model then give this file a download! :) ~Nozyspy~




Sith Stalker Lightsaber - SP

sith_stalker_splightsaber.rar | 382.7 KB

for yourself with the screenshot supplied. I will say that the spikes on the tip seem way too large, though. The texturing was plain as well, consisting of mostly solid shades. I did run across one major bug...the readme contained no information on how to use the saber in SP. It works great in MP, but if you want it for the campaign you'll have to poke around a bit and figure it out. ~Dretzel




Hanziness' Scepter | 2.3 KB

knockback, and you've got this little mod. It's really nothing more than a .sab file, but that's enough to get the job done! Unfortunately, it seems to work properly only in the Single Player game, so no using this powerful weapon online! If you like it, you know where to click! [b]EDIT: Sorry, forgot to include the command to use the weapon in the review! It's /saber scepter[/b]




The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition - HUD

tfuuse_hud_v1.rar | 894.13 KB

certainly get lots of TFU themed mod's here on JKFiles! Here we have the latest TFU themed mod, another rendition of the HUD from The Force Unleashed. It does indeed look like the HUD from the force unleashed, and it is somewhat bigger (I think it is anyway, I could be wrong) than some of the other TFU HUD mod's we have, however I do feel this needs quite a bit more work. The edges are rather jagged and the area inside is a little fuzzy. I could be wrong, but I think this also photo sourced from a TFU screenshot which would explain the problems I just mentioned. I definitely think you should try and make this HUD completely from scratch because that will allow you to get a much cleaner look to the HUD. That about wraps it up, so if you guys are fans of The Force Unleashed then you might enjoy this mod! :) ~Nozyspy~

Single Player Dark-side conversion mod | 3.51 MB

jedi change places, Tavion changes to Jan, Kyle changes to Boba Fett, and Luke changes to Desaan. Now. since this is your first mod, I won't be overly harsh, but still, a bug report is helpful. There were a few bugs I found: Desaan is an overscale model, so whenever he walks around, he goes a little too far forward. Kind of funny, actually, since he walked right through Jaden on the first level. After Ragnos posesses Jan in the final battle (light side ending), she changes to a missing texture. This is probably due to a shader remap, so not a really big deal...I don't even know if that can be fixed, actually. Also, there were no voice changes, but c'mon, that would have been a LOT of work. If you like the sound of it, have a go! ~Dretzel




AdZ's Force Mod | 8.63 MB

animation is not included for functionality purposes. Since its the same, I will simply copy my review, just disregard the drain part... [quote]Well, I don't know about the rest of you, but I loved the V1 of AdZ's Force Mod, and am excited to review the next version.. This mod certainly doesn't dissappoint, it not only gives a new and fresh look to the effects shown when using the force powers, but includes a whole new set of icons for each power which look far better than the default, and far better than the v1 icons. So i'll start with saying that the icons are great, and for them alone, I would keep this mod. Now moving onto the effects themselves: [b]Lightning:[/b] There are not only new effects for the lightning power, but he has also included new sounds. The sound is nice, however i'm not sure if I would say it is better, certainly different though, and quite nice for a change. The lightning effect itself looks great though, and definately and improvement that I liked. [b]Mind Trick:[/b] Basically this power consists of small pink/purple dots flashing above a players head, i'm not sure why a purple colour was chosen, but it does look good, so cant complain about that! [b]Protect:[/b] Ok, the protect effect doesn't seem much different, it basically seems like a thinner and more transparent version of the default, but it also doesnt move around the skin like before, its more of a static effect. I never did like the default, and this new effect is a much more subtle and nicer effect.. much easier on the eyes for an old sod like me. [b]Drain:[/b] Now, for my favourite addition... the drain effect. This new effect is completely unlike the default, its more of a haze of red energy been pulled from the other player, rather than a lightning effect. I absolutely love this new effect, however I would prefer if it was slightly smaller, it covers a large amount of your aim, which might get difficult in the midst of combat, other than that its fantastic. As an addition to the new effects, the grip animation from the V1 version has still been included, but the animation itself has been made to go faster, and as an added bonus to the pack, he has also included a new flame burst / flame thrower sound. All in all, a fantastic force modification here, great work AdZ.. I hope you make a V3, i'll be keeping my eyes open for it, and for any other file you release! I COMMAND THEE ALL TO DOWNLOAD OR I SHALL STEAL YOUR SOULS AND PURGE YOU INTO THE UNDERWORLD... nah not really.. but seriously.. download this... *evil glare*[/quote] - AmonRa




Stormtrooper Rosh

stormtrooper_rosh.rar | 5.11 MB

business aside, this mod feels a bit sloppy. Whilst the conversion to Rosh to Stormtrooper Commander was easy, the author ATTEMPTED to make Rosh's soundset sound like a stormtrooper....partially, meaning some sound the same still. When I saw the word partially, I just shook my head in disgust. Either all or nothing, please -___-; you just ruin the already ruined immersion in the JA SP campaign. Worse yet is that it just sounds like an altered Rosh with a bucket on his head. I'm not familiar with Goldwave, but I'm sure there has to be SOME kind of intercommish filter you can run it through. This one just I guess the only other thing I question is the use of the default Raven stormtrooper versus the new and improved [file="24382"]trooper by Hapslash.[/file] Sure, it'd require a bit of crediting and what not, but honestly, the default Stormtrooper choice is probably going to draw less people to the file. That's about it. I'd definitely suggest, at the bare minimum, redoing or finishing up your sound conversion. Payoff is definitely equal to effort inputted here. - Averus Retruthan




Mystic Forces Clan HUD | 1.07 MB

recently thrown this new HUD of his at the face of JKFiles. I must say it's well recieved. An update of his previous work and I must say a great improvement. It's not too intrusive, shows your stats clearly in both graphical and numerical form and it looks rather nice. The HUD comes in a variety of colours all of which are well crafted. My only gripe is that this is a clan HUD. Now the clans eye of Ra logo looks nice no matter who uses it, but when it's tagged with the clans name it restricts use greatly. I do belive that is the idea of creating a clan specific HUD though. [/quote] I do apologise for my mistake on the previous review, it seems I overlooked the bug in question. If you downloaded v2.0 then this is a must. ~Sciacca




Snargies Xtra-Crisp Saber Sounds | 125.59 KB

this one any different? Lets find out. This file contains 4 new saber ignite sounds, and 4 new saber retract sounds. The first one I tried, to me sounded a bit strange, it was like an electronic version of two metal swords being scraped together fast, or possibly the sound when pulling a sword fast from a sheath. I thought it sounded quite cool, but I'm not sure it really suited a saber, but that would depend on your taste. The next one I found was when I was using a staff, and it reminded me of the sound when Dooku ignited his saber in Episode 2 against Obi-wan and Anakin, I always loved that sound. However, it was slightly different, and I think I would have preferred it to be exactly the same, but we don't always get what we want now do we.. nevertheless I quite liked this one. All in all, there is a couple of nice new sounds, its only a small file and worth checking out. Personally this version wasn't my taste, but I'll definately keep a look out for a v2. So, if your looking for some new sounds to enhance your days of slicing and dicing with your laser sword.. check this one out. I COMMAND THEE TO DOWNLOAD! - AmonRa




Star_Wars_Stances_Animated | 1.53 MB

stand a lot straighter, kind of military style actually... I was expecting him to salute at any moment! personally I would prefer the standard stance, but this would be good if you were perhaps doing some kind of military rpg with some friends. The next one that I noticed was jumping, standing on the spot and jumping in the air has now been giving the 'rolling' jump animation that you would usually get when jumping forward, and now when jumping forward the animation seems to go faster than usual. He has also included two-hand lightning whilst weilding weapons, which I found to be a nice inclusion. The force push and pull also have been slightly edited, and new sounds added. However, whilst there is a few nice things in this pack, there is also an abundance of bugs in regards to the weapon stances, for example, with single saber blue style you dont even swing the saber at the enemies, it just jolts around your body as if your character is frozen, and when standing still it looks like your character has been frozen still whilst running. To be honest, most of the saber stances seem to be bugged and need work done on them, the only real thing I liked with them would be the spinning upper-cut in single red and yellow, which to be honest does look quite good. Most of the gun animations are the same, I noticed that the blaster pistol has been changed so your holding it more like a rifle now. As I said there are a few nice saber stances, for example the upper-cut attack, dual sabers standing animation, but work is definately needed on most of it. If your able to fix these bugs then I think I would be a nice pack indeed. I think the key is testing, make sure you do plenty of testing, and get some friends to check it to, that way all bugs can be fixed BEFORE the release. I'm unsure if this is your first attempt at stances, but if it is, then nice work for a first go, and I hope you can put together a v2. If you like what you see, then click ye ole' download link. - AmonRa




Gently Red Green Bubble Replacement | 2.53 KB

before(it might for all I know,) I can say this mod is definitely still a nice change for those who dislike the green shield. The change has already been quoted, and the results are actually somewhat pleasant. It's a definite middle-ground between the green shield and having no shield at all, aside from make a gentle green versus the vibrant green. A small, but welcome utilitarian change. If you suffer from similar lag problems, or just seek a change in shielding, then seek the altar of downloading. - Averus Retruthan

Star Wars - Project: Nexus HUD | 2.63 MB

interest from some promo screenshots, since that's the sort of kindly person I am![/quote] Wow that Project slipped through my dusty brain i've never heard of it. But as the man states this is a good new HUD :) First of all we'll start with overall. This HUD is a Helmet type HUD to give you the Helmet type of gameplay like in Star Wars Republic Commando but altered a bit. On the Left is Your Saber Style Meter and on the right your ammo and a Purplish thing which i couldn't work out maybe its scenic. Anyway The Force Meter is next to your Saber Color on your right. This HUD is also got quite a bit of neon blue around its edges for a cool kind of look. Your HP Is the TOp Bar and i haven't figured out Armour yet either. Thus I come to the end of my HUD Review as i am running out of time on this planet so [b] SUBMIT BANDWIDTH OR PERISH [/b] I'm not as scary as Averus >.>




Virus HUD | 202.31 KB

modest changes. Basically, the hud has been effectively revamped, given a black background, and all the counter images have been darkened. The corners of the hud now have a biohazard symbol upon them. The end result? Respectably decent. Not exactly one of those "WOW OMG KNOCK MAH OKAPI OFF THE SOUP CAN PLZ" huds, but definitely a good one. THROW FORTH YOUR BANDWIDTH UNTO ME AND BEG FOR BUMBLEHBEES. - Averus Retruthan




Telekinesis | 108.58 KB

nonetheless which alters your force powers slightly. The Author has changed two. One being force grip which is now renamed in-Game to Telekinesis. The other modification apparently is Force Push. Let’s start with Force Push. When trying this out I was SHOCKED. The author said he had changed force push by making peoples arms flail wildly when they're pushed down. I saw none of this except the normal Force Push animation. Now onto the force power that does work! The Force Grip has been re-named to Telekinesis. From the looks the red collection of force that gathers at your hand has been lightened but still looks way cool. Also when you grip someone they flail around like a fish out of water which is good fun to watch until your grip wears off. Overall this is quite a fun mod for those who like experimenting with their victims so i'll be sure to pass it on to Averus. To Improve: The Force Push Animation. The Target just falls down as normal. Maybe make them fly with their arms out and legs out like someone was punched by the hulk in the stomach. //Rets

Meditate States

meditate.rar | 15.75 MB

second being for a Teras Kasi character from [i]Star Wars Galaxies[/i]. Can't honestly say either are in my recollection, but whatever, you can see the screenshots and judge for yourselves. However, I should point out what appears to be a fatal flaw. The stances aren't integrated into the meditate sequence, and are just single frames. This means that off the bat they probably won't work without modifying a model's animation.cfg to pick the new 'sequence' in lieu of the default one, and even when that is done there'll be no transition - you'll just skip from one frame to the next. Still, for someone who has the knowledge to perform the integration properly, this may be worth getting. For the average gamer, well. It doesn't work without doing some modding, basically. ~ Kouen




Ancient Saber Effects | 1.43 MB

The mod in itself is fairly simple, since it only changes the saber trail (and the ‘sword trail’ too, if you use a sword ingame). Very cleverly the author has changed the saber trail, so that when you swing your saber, instead of just a blur of bright colours, you actually get a symbol inside the trail. Now, I have seen saber trail effects mods before, but I don’t think I have ever seen one in which a symbol is visible in the saber trail. The symbol you can see in the trail with this mod is none other than the Star Forge symbol from Knights of the Old Republic, which since I am a big KotOR fan, was a nice surprise! :) Now, the readme explains that; [quote] …if your using a sword on server OR in SP then when you swing the elder sign is in your trail.[/quote] I don’t know what this ‘elder sign’ actually is, and unfortunately I don’t have a sword mod in JKA so I downloaded the first sword mod I could find on JKFiles to test this out. However it seems the one I downloaded didn’t have trail effects for the swords, so I couldn’t test it out. It seems that this wont work with all sword mod’s then, only the ones that have sword trail effects. Overall, though I could only use the saber half of this mod, I thought this was really cool. I never thought you could incorporate a symbol into the saber trail effects, so I had a nice surprise here. So, personally I think this is a really cool mod based on a very clever idea, if you guys like the look of it too, then give it a download! ~Nozyspy~




Troopers Voices Mod | 4.15 MB

character sounds which have been changed most, are those of everybody’s favourite cannon fodder...Stormtroopers! Stormtroopers, along with Gran, Trandoshan’s, and lots of other characters have received new sound sets, from taunts to death sounds and everything in-between! It is worth pointing out now, that it seems the main benefit of this mod will be felt in Singleplayer most of all. This mod also works in Multiplayer. But since Multiplayer characters only seem to have one taunt sound, and the other necessary sounds (death, pain etc.) the mod obviously cant replace the same kind of range of sounds that you hear the characters using in Single Player (such as humorous remarks like; “I could sure go for a death stick right now…”). Another set of new sounds is also included for the Trandoshan’s. Many of these sounds seem to be taken from Republic Commando, which as you may remember featured Trandoshan’s as one of the main ‘bad guys’. Again the sounds have been well used here, and they make the Trando’s sound more scary than ever! Also added as the death sounds for several characters is the famous [url=]Wilhelm Scream[/url] (check that Wikipedia link out for an explanation of what the Wilhelm Scream is), which I thought was a very clever idea! :) All in all then a good mod here, players might find it more useful in Singleplayer because of the large range of new sounds, but it is also cool in Multiplayer since it also replaces some of the taunts and other sounds. Also, on an important note: [b]This mod works for BOTH JK2 and JKA![/b] So if you guys like the sound of this mod (no pun intended :P), then give it a download! ~Nozyspy~




Rebel/Imperial NPCs | 3.1 KB

NPCs in here, so you'll probably be pushed close to your NPC extensions limit without JA Unlimited, and will most certainly be in trouble when it comes to singleplayer mode. ~ Kouen




New Flechette Sounds | 104.43 KB

difference. The Flechette sounds have been changed to what appears to be shotgun sounds, which I actually think sounds better than the original JKA sounds. So if you weren’t that fond of the original JKA Flechette sounds, here you have the answer to your problems! So if you like the idea of this mod, then give it a download! :) ~Nozyspy~




Saber Size Mod | 6.16 KB

very...very...long. Locked Style: Strong Max combo: 1 Forced Color: Random Broadsaber: a thicker, and still a tad longer, lightsaber Locked Style: Medium Max Combo: Default Forced Color: Random Longknife: about the length of a machette, 2x the width of a regular saber Locked Style: None Max Combo: Default Forced Color: Random Combatknife: very small saber, less than half of a usual saber Locked Style: Tavion Max Combo: Infinite Forced Color: Red[/quote] [quote]Commands to use sabers in-game (type in console without using the quotation marks): Longsaber: \"saber longsaber\" Broadsaber: \"saber broadsaber\" Longknife: \"saber longknife\" Combatknife: \"saber combatknife\"[/quote]As you can see, not exactly balanced with the default sabers, so I wouldn\'t really use them in MP on account of the fact you\'ll be flagged for cheating, so.... Still, they\'ll work as novelty sabers in SP, a new way to slaughter NPCs, if you will. ~ Kouen




Sable Saber | 166.87 KB

The saber has a blade that is set with a longer blade, so using this weapon as it is would unbalance the game unless you battled someone with the same length saber. There's two pk3's in here: one for JO and one for JA, so you can use it in either game, too. Give it a download if you like it.




Perfect Ep. 3 Blades | 193.56 KB

i took a look at them they looked like any other Episode 3 saber mod. This is just my take at them. I dont see any point to download this mod because the sabers probably look like any other Episode 3 saber mod. If you want, give it a try.[/quote] And there you have it, lads and lasses. A review for a file written by the author. There\'s nothing here for me to add. - Jose




Star Trek: The Next Generation transporter FX | 476.42 KB

back, it usually just gets put on BBC2 as filler when someone borks something. I actually have some fond memories of episodes caught in a post-Simpsons can't-be-bothered-to-change-the-channel state of attentive viewing as a kid. Patrick Stewart was surprisingly good at bringing comedic tones to an overall serious role. They certainly got the right guy to play the charismatic captain.... Ah heck. The point is, that transporter effect, despite being relatively early in the whole particle effects didgeridoo, looked cutting edge and very sci-fi, unlike JA's default teleporter effect which basically reminds me of [i]ReBoot[/i]. Now you get that very same TNG teleporter effect for JA, in all it's splendor and glory and above all (for me, anyway) elegance. It's nice, sleek and subtle, unlike Raven Software's equivalent of a green halogen bulb being rapidly turned on then shorting out and exploding in the immediate aftermath. So, while this mini-mod may be perfect for a Star Trek fan, it's recommended for anyone simply because of it removing the awful (and sometimes headache-inducing) teleport/connect/disconnect effect used in baseJA and replacing it with something visually pleasing and functional. Be warned, however, that scoring over 1500 particles (sweet mother of Iny Fudge! :o ) it's not jackin' around - chances are it will cause some slowdown, 'specially on older/weaker rigs or if many instances of the .efx file are playing at once. But still. One of the nicer effects mods out there, to be sure. ~ Kouen




DNA Sabers | 15.45 KB

forensically inaccurate as procedurals get! Not to mention.... Did it again, huh? Okay. Well. That DNA shizzle is what this saber blade mod aims to look like. It does accomplish that goal to a degree, in that the helix pattern is present and noticable, but it\'s a little rough around the edges, if you get my drift. It\'s a nice blade mod, if not relatively simple, and it\'s definitely something different to all these \"OMFG-100%-MOVIE-ACCURATE!!!!231$1111\" blade mods we seem to get spammed with (ironically, none of them are ever going to be 100% accurate because the blades in the movies have all the consistency of- no, wait, that\'s too gross to say). So, it makes a nice change. Download it if you want some \"DNA\"-shaped saber blades. Personally I\'ll give it a miss, I use Supercrisis\' Helix Light Sabers blade mod which is much sleeker. But this one is nice too, so you should definitely check it out! ~ Kouen




Alternate Link Sounds | 2.38 MB

recorded from SSBB. They\'re all either far too quiet, far too distorted, or generally just far too low-quality for me to consider them worth using, but I\'m not you, am I? Give \'em a download if you want, just don\'t expect a whole lot. The game\'s background music and other ambient sound effects will likely drown these out entirely, which is a shame, really, because beyond the static it sounds like this would be a decent soundset for Link.[/quote]Also included with this version is a Wind Waker soundpack for the Young Link model. I wish I could say the quality is any better, but I can\'t. Most of the sound files are over-ridden by some \'pop\' sound, and the ones that aren\'t are awfully static and grind away at your eardrums. Actually, they sound kinda like they were recorded in a similar manner to me holding my 2-in-1 USB memory stick/MP3 player in front of the TV. Again, download if you want some new sounds for Link. Just be warned they may not be up to the spec you\'re hoping for. ~Kouen




Clan Mod Unlimited | 1.19 MB

folder. - Sabers Last I checked, there were no visible limits on how many sabers you could actually have, but I guess I may have been wrong or I simply never had that many sabers. Even if you were under the limits, though, only twenty or so appeared on the list and the console was necessary for the others. With JA Unlimited, virtually all sabers will appear on the menu (obviously it's not really unlimited, but it may as well be) and there ceiling limit on how many you can have has been turned into the roof limit - 'tis much higher. Higher than I was able to reach with every lightsaber, sword, baseball bat, axe, halberd, polearm, voulge and God-only-knows-what-else I could procure from JKFiles. Since saber switching via /saber only appears to work in JA+, this is great for anyone not using these mods, since you no longer need to know the .sab designations to load your sabers. - Maps Again, you can usually have as many maps as you'll need, but now they'll all show on the menu so that you don't need to open pk3s in Pakscape/PakRat (shout-out for you Maccies out there ;) ), find the bsp name and use /devmap to load your maps. Great improvement in my book, helpful for those who don't check map pk3s by default, or don't know how to. - NPCs Now, this one you did have a limit on, and that limit is basically kaput. You can now have as many NPCs as you'll need - again, I'm figuring 65535 being the ceiling limit, but you'll probably never reach that many - without that pesky ".npc extensions are too large!" error in multiplayer. Score one for no annoyances! - Vehicles Oh yeah. Now we're talkin'. If you're like me and enjoy going to town with some serious vehicular manslaughter, again, this is the mod for you. No more .veh extensions errors, and the error with .vwp files (which were still at factory limits in the last release) is now fixed, so you can have as much firepower as you need in the base folder. - Models / Skins Considering the game can hold as many models/skins as you can use, I always found it kinda dopey that there was a limit on the amount of icons, but that limit is now gone. - Species Selections The limit was previously 32. Now, it's... what is it again? 65535 or something like that? Ain't that quite a resume? [b]Disclaimers[/b] ► This will [b]not[/b] work in the singleplayer game - source code for the SP DLLs was never released. Strictly MP only, sorry folks. ► Naturally, SP won't work at all if you're over any limits, so basically, my advice: don't put mods in base, make a seperate mod folder for this and dump your files in there, then launch this mod via .bat file. That way you can have as much as you need in MP, without shafting SP. ► Limits are there for reasons, as Kat Angel quite rightly states in the readme. Even though this mod means the game won't object to extreme amounts of mods, please try and factor in how much the iD Tech 3 engine can handle, and how much your computer can handle. If you have too much in your base folder, your game will take ages to load. The more you have, the slower it gets. The less RAM your computer has, the slower load times pass. The slower your CPU, the slower load times will be. You also risk your computer randomly shutting down, restarting, or random crashes by having more than the computer can handle. So, basically, if you never use it, don't keep it, 'cuz the more you got the more strain your system takes. Please note that since this is the ClanMod version, installation instructions differ somewhat to the baseJA version. At Kat Angel's request, the install instructions will be added into the review. [b]-Installation Instructions-[/b] Easy! Simply open up the zip file and dump z_ja_unlimited.pk3 into your ***clanmod*** folder (not base), and optionally include thumbnailshrink_clanmod.pk3 or thumbnailshrink_more_clanmod.pk3 with it. If you place the file in your base folder, it WILL NOT WORK with Clan Mod, and may cause base JKA to behave strangely. (Most likely, that means "to crash".) Then start up JA, and you're done! [b]-End Installation Instructions-[/b] Right, safety warnings and summaries out of the way, I think we're done here. Overall, great mod for you "pakrats" (no pun intended). If you play ClanMod and like to use a lot of add-ons, this is a sure-fire winner. ~ Kouen





hostile npcs with jawas. And all of a sudden we have a mod that does just that. Every single hostile humanoid you'll ever meet on your jedi path (with the exception of Rosh) is now a jawa. There is, however, a bug that I found. Since the zip contains a readme for the jawa pack, I'm assuming that some npcs will show up as big white jawa-shaped blobs if you don't have it. Heck, if you find that massacring jawas for kicks is something for you, download it and enjoy. - Jose

Green=a Lazer , orange=CandyCorn ,Purple=a U.V_light and yellow=a Bannana with a bite taken out of it.[/quote]Well I'm not sure if I saw exactly the thing he was talking about (with the exception of the red lightsaber blade -- it really does look just like a candy cane) but it is something different, so if that's what you're looking for then have at it. This will change all the blade colors, and each one is fairly different. ~Inyri




Lightning Edge | 614.36 KB

replaces the saber blades with a cool lightning effect. Included are several pk3s for some of the several MP mods out there, such as FM3, OJP and so on. There are also two pk3s that modify the saber blade radius. Nice move, that. With the original blade radius the lightning effect is barely visible, you can only see a slight vibration in the blade. With a blade radius of 20, the effect becomes very apparent and the blade itself huge. In the end, it looks awesome. There\'s not much more one could ask from such a simple, yet effective mod aside from an epilepsy warning. But those with such misfortune shouldn\'t be playing the game anyway. [i]One can\'t expect much from someone who regularly gazes at the ceiling through the bottom of a bottle.[/i] - Jose

Sword of the Sith | 17.75 KB

sword as a saber and well this one just dropped into my lap. For a saber I can\'t say much apart from does look like it\'s supposed to (probably because it was just made into a saber file :P). Although it tries to show off a little, it eliminates the saber glow which is a good thing. Also when you swing the saber it produces some kind of.. Well I can\'t describe it, you\'ll see it in the screenshots below anyway. The sound is the typical sword slice that we\'ve come to love/hate from the swords published. Although one thing bothers me. Some of the swords I\'ve tried out when you hit a solid object it bounces off and makes a small ricochet sound. This one just slices through and leaves the saber trail. That\'s the only thing that bothers me about the sword. Apart from that it\'s a good addon and I\'m keeping it in my base. Oh I almost forgot it works in SP as well as MP. -Mithran-




Saber Clubs | 6.75 KB

to do many things, including hitting someone with R2D2. If you choose the dual sabers, with R2D2, you will really pack a punch. I got a one hit kill by doing a rolling stab at someone with him. R2D2 isn’t the only added club though. Macman used the ingame guns, including R2D2, and a barrel. That\'s 12 new ways to hit somone! Macman also used the ingame effects of each weapon, and added it to the club, so when you hit the wall with the DEMP2, you can see one of its effects activated, which is really cool. The only thing I didn’t like, was when I used saber throw, R2D2 loses all of his textures. I hope the author can fix this, cause I would just love to throw R2D2 across a map. :P Be warned, some of the other guns are not good for clubbing someone, especially if that someone has another saber. I tried using the Blaster Rifle Club against a bot, and that taught me how to go into negatives. -_- As long as I have R2D2 however, I will be happy. New Weapons: Obviously New Sounds: No New Effects: No -Airm

Twilight Princess Master Sword | 910.42 KB

alive and kicking. As you no doubt have guessed, this is a reskin of potentially one of the best known fantasy swords in existence: the Master Sword from the Legend of Zelda series. There have been many renditions of this sword over the years, from the pixellated NES and SNES versions to some pretty cool 3d variants. This particular replica is meant to represent the Master Sword as seen in the 2006 game Twilight Princess. From what I\'ve been able to gather, the skin is relatively accurate. Not perfect, but more than passable. The actual [i]model[/i] is a little... ginormous, and not 100% accurate, but that\'s no fault of this author nor is it anything that can be changed through a skin. Not a bad replica. Using what was available, I\'d say it\'s pretty close to the original and would make a fine addition to any Legend of Zelda collection! ~Inyri




Stargate Startup Screen | 720.19 KB

background. Those two things combined make the buttons hard to read, which is quite annoying if you don\'t know what they are in the first place. There are new sounds for the screen as well.

.Hack Hud | 145.99 KB

around a very interesting concept. The HUD itself seems like a fairly faithful replica of the original. There are some very minor inconsistencies when compared side by side, but it\'s nothing you would ever notice. The only issue I have with this HUD is that it absolutely lacks any indication of your saber style. Which may prove to be a big downside in some duels, especially if you want to surprise your opponent with a sudden uppercut, and you don\'t know if your using the strong or fast style without giving it away. Overall quite a nice HUD, and if you don\'t mind the lack of saber style bar, or a random face staring back at you, mocking you, laughing at your misery, then give this a download.[/quote]In this version the major update is the inclusion of the saber style indicator, which was originally missing. Just be warned that the blue style indicator is a little hard to see as it blends in with the blue background, but the style indicators are functional. There is also a second version of the HUD that includes a grey version of the blue bar -- there are no issues seeing the blue saber indicator here. A simple tutorial has also been added to let users know how to customize the HUD for their own personal use. Want to change the picture shown in the HUD? This is your chance! The author has also promised to provide assistance to those who are unable to follow the tutorial, so take him up on his offer if you need to. :) ~Inyri




Jedi Order HUD | 327.42 KB

and not all on it\'s own. No, this is more of a HUD pack. Based on a HUD from World of Warcraft (Or a mod for it, mebbe? I dunno, I don\'t play WoW), this places all the information you might need right around your player, with the exception of the ammo counter, which is at the bottom towards the right. There are six variations on the same HUD, three of which show the shields, and three of which do not. In the three of each type, there are variations on transparency. One fully visible, one with 50% visibility, and one with 50% visibility with 75% visible edges. It was nice, I guess, to have the choices, but it can be a bit annoying to have to choose between em all. :p The HUD is now changed so that there are two crescent shaped bars on each side of the player in third person view. On the left side, the crescent is split into armor (At the top) and health (At the bottom), with the counter at the top and bottom respectively. On the right side is the saber style at the top half of the crescent, and the force bar for the bottom half. There is no counter for the force bar, which can be a bit annoying at times. This HUD does not really work for first person view, and it can seem to get in the way at times even in third person view. However, it is done well enough. So... Give this a download if you like the looks of it!




Extra Music Changer | 170.49 KB

little minimod that allows you to open a new menu to choose any song from the game that you want, instead of the music of whatever map you are currently on. It\'s great for those of you who don\'t listen to your own music ingame, as I normally do. It\'s even good for those of us who do, but want to listen to the ingame music for a change, as I occasionally do. Anyway, give it a download if you like this as much as I do. :p




Dark force v.25 2nd patch | 1.46 MB

get me wrong, I love updates. I love fixes. And that is most certainly what it is. It isn\'t so much a new version as it is another fix. To save some time, and a lot of space, I will just link you guys to the previous file so you can read the reviews: [url=;75130] Dark Force Mod Final (Fixed)[/url] So what\'s been fixed? Well, the readme states it quite well, but the most notable ones are these: You can now use custom content, unlike before when they weren\'t allowed, some general effect tweaks, and a bunch of little npc problems have been fixed. The playermodels are still bigger than normal, which can be a bit annoying at times, and the first person view still doesn\'t work quite right with a lot of models, but still not a bad little mod. What I would really love to see is an option to control player size, and mebbe an option menu to control some of the effects in the game... If you love totally one sided mods where you can blast all your enemies into oblivion without so much as blinking (I\'m looking at you, Averus :p), then give this a download!




Army Camouflage Flechette | 239.45 KB

actually submitted to JkFiles. :p With nothing to compare to, I shall simply write a regular review, as if this wasn't a version two. Ingenious right? Well anyways, this mod changes the original flechette skin to a Camo pattern, which seems very appropriate as they are primarily used by swamp troopers. :p The skin itself looks pretty good, if anything it could have slightly less vibrant colors. As mentioned above, the gun now has new sounds and effects as well. Both are fairly nice, and fit the skin. The shooting sounds are however a bit too far on the deep side. Therefore creating an illusion of a far more powerful gun, quite misleading when you expect to blow a hole in the wall, while your bullets end up just kinda bouncing around. :p ~Metall Pingwin




Redeem\'s Starburst Sabers | 746.72 KB

a kind of exploded look, or a prickly look... Heck, they look like a starburst. It\'s not only the best adjective, but it\'s really the only suitable one. Another cool aspect of these blades is that each blade has two colors. For instance purple goes from pink in the center to purple on the outside, and red goes from orange near the core to red near the edges. Cool, no? I think so. Definitely a new and unique take on the average blade mod. Grab it while it\'s hot! ~Inyri [i]Psst! JA+ fans! Custom support for this mod is included! But you didn\'t hear it from me! *runs away*[/i]




Wøtw Official Stances | 2.47 MB

whoever reads this, just take a look at the screenshots to see how they are changed. The only real error I noticed was in the stance for the bomb weapons. The arm holding the weapon appears to have been squashed just above the elbow. Other than that, things work fine. I like the stances, but, I don\'t think I will be keeping this little mod over my own unreleased custom stance mod... Give it a download if you like the look of it.




Mc\'s Hud Pack | 1.2 MB

look \"cooler\" as the author put it. Each one looks a little more ghostly, if you ask Averus. However, not much was done to the tick marks or anything of that nature, so the change was very small. It comes in the following colors: - Blue - Green - Greyish Red - Pink - Red Perhaps not enough variety to appease all crowds, but who knows? Regardless, I think this pack is simple, yet efficient in its own way. Great news as well: This will work for JA+ users. I personally will be using this just because I know it works XD.

Shadowmod | 14.51 KB

changes the simple shadows to be slightly more detailed. That meaning it\'s made to look like a projected outline of a person. Sounds nifty? It is, save for the fact that every time you change the direction you run in, so does the shadow. Let\'s just say that the effect made me want to go back to blobs, for it was simply annoying and unrealistic. If you don\'t mind that small glitch, which I believe might be impossible to fix, then give this a download. ~Metall Pingwin




Hell Blitz Rapid Fire Cannon | 699.42 KB

:p This mod is definitely a cheat mod, as it horrendously imbalances the game in favor of you. But hey, cheating\'s all good. I cheat, you cheat, we all cheat. Cheating\'s fine! Okay, well cheating in multiplayer is certainly not fine, but since this mod won\'t work in multiplayer the way it works in single player, there\'s nothing much to worry about. Let\'s get to the nitty gritty, shall we? Let me re-emphasize that this is not a new model, it is just a change to the fletchette gun. The changes include an increased rate of fire, unlimited ammo, and a new pinkish-red paint job (to represent hell, or fire... or hellfire...). Those are the basic changes. This mod was designed for SP, and as such certain features won\'t work in multiplayer (such as the unlimited ammo). So here\'s the thing. If you want to [i]blow away stormies by the dozens[/i], download this mod. If you want to be fair to the poor suckers (why would you? ;)) then keep your slow fletchette. ~Inyri




Thinner Lightsabers | 33.42 KB

see that that was the case, although I conceed that the bulge is indeed [i]much[/i] smaller. However as I may have some mods still conflicting (I\'m pretty sure I don\'t, but it\'s not out of the realm of possibility) I recommend anyone who\'s been looking for a mod to do that check it out. As for the blade [i]thinning[/i] they\'re a little too thin for my tastes. Well no even that, it\'s just that they look like they\'re [i]smushed[/i], like someone pressed them in a book or something. I suppose if it works for flowers... In any case, they\'re thinner, and the bulge has been reduced (if not completely removed). Give \'em a try if you\'re looking for a basic blade tweak! ~Inyri




Asian Stances | 592.08 KB

supposed to be Asian themed. Now, I may not have a huge knowledge of Asian stances, but the only one that seems to fit is the blue stance, with the saber held pointing straight out. Yellow stance is close to the normal stance, except with this it looks like the holder is breathing deeply. Red stance holds the saber off to the side, horizontally. This mod also changes the running animation to not move the hand with the saber as much when running forward. A nice little mod, I say. But don\'t take my word for it. Give it a download and see for yourselves. [/quote] Now why does that matter now? Because I have for you all the JK3 version of it! There are some differences, though. The red stance is slightly different, and there were no changes to the original JK3 walking animations. Also included is a version that is compatible with JAPlus. Give it a download if this sounds good to you.




Repeater Blaster Pistol | 15.98 KB

\"gangstery\", with the blaster pistol held sort of sideways. I personally find the ready stance to look a little silly... but maybe you won\'t. Then again it\'s really not much sillier than the default one. The second part of this mod alters the weapons.dat file to alter the fire rate of the blaster pistol. The effect? It fires about four times faster than the blaster rifle alt fire. You could -- and probably should -- consider this something of a cheat mod, as it will make the blaster pistol the only weapon you\'ll ever need in the SP campaign (yes, it increases the ammo to 999 too). As you might have guessed, the fire rate portion and the ammunition portion of this mod do not work in MP. Sorry, no MP cheating for you! ~Inyri




No "Ingame Crash" Patch | 1.32 MB

persons game to crash. Anyways, this fixes that, for both Linux and Windows servers. I stand corrected. This fixes a problem that was not covered by sv_floodprotect 1, which prevents chat flooding. This tool prevents flooding from outside programs, or sending extremely long strings of text to the server. I apologize for this. -Bah. I did it incorrectly again. Here it is from the author. [quote]flood ---fixed from day one in basejka (sv_floodprotect) so irrelevant. (FIXED) ingame buffer overflow / using say etc to pass too long strings / jampgame (FIXED : L.A for win, this patch for both win and linux ) distant buffer overflow / using a tool to send too long commands to the server / jampded. (FIXED : Hex edit by L Auriemma) fake players / spamming the server by sending many fake connect commands.

New Stance Mod | 8.39 MB

isn\'t significantly different from the default yellow stance, in my opinion), and red stance is supposed to be... well, nothing in particular, it seems. Remember that if you download this mod, you can only use one stance mod at a time, so if you can\'t get these stances to work try clearing out your base folder. ~Inyri

are effected by specular lighting. What does this complicated garbage mean to you masses? Well, basically the lighting shines and bounces off the guns more realistically. The most impressive part was the author\'s attention to the scope on the E-11 and the Pistol. The E-11\'s scope takes in light now, and I was quite impressed by the simple genius of this modification =_,= The only possible downfalls to this mod would be the loss of the shiny and vanity aspects slightly. They seem a little more rustic, but that is hardly a problem. The only other problem is the large file size I suppose. Personally, if I used the default guns, I would keep this in my base. IF YOU USE THE DEFAULT WEAPONS, SURRENDER YOUR BANDWIDTH AND RECEIVE THE SMALL(in changes) YET IMPRESSIVE MOD. *stamps the Averus Retruthan Seal of Malevolence upon it* - Averus Retruthan

Console mods are novelty mods, so the fact of the matter is that these [i]are[/i] sharingans, whatever those might be, and if you\'re a Naruto fan you can download it to get a little reminder of the show every time you need to use the console! Doesn\'t look half bad, either, so if you\'re bored of the stars you could grab this even if you\'re not a Naruto fan. ~Inyri

Red Blasts | 42.94 KB

fire, you can [file="73716"]still pick it up here[/file]. [quote]this particular mod changes the blaster bolts for the blaster pistol from yellow to red, to be more in synch with classic film footage. However only primary fire has been changed. The author claims he left the secondary "charge" as yellow because it looks more "powerful." Personally that seems like a silly reason. No blaster is going to change color simply because there's more energy in the bolt. This mod would be better, in my opinion, if the color was consistent through both primary and secondary fire. Other than that it's a simple, possibly needed tweak that may not have been done before. Pick it up if you're looking for more accuracy.[/quote] ~Inyri




Lava Sabers | 54.81 KB

that this would never work in reality, as I don\'t think the crystals are that strong XD. Now, onto the subject at hand. This mod intends to transform your meager lightsaber blade and trail into the adequately named \"Lava Sabers.\" The result is...not very lava-ey. While I\'d say that the blade is not bad at all,--The orange seems quite appealing, really.-- it doesn\'t seem to say: \"behold, for I am light and lava aligned together in malice!\" However, that shouldn\'t demote this mod\'s status that much. The blades are still quite decent. DOES THE ILLUSION OF LAVA APPEAL TO YOUR EYES =_O? IF SO, THERE\'S A BUTTON YOU CAN CLICK TO SUBMIT THY BANDWIDTH. - Averus Retruthan




Drakseye Saber (Original Concept) | 6.49 MB

thing twice. [quote] Well…this is an interesting hilt. Remember the Cable Blade hilt? Basically, the original author took that hilt, and make different versions of it with the same theme: Dragons. Basically the author has added a dragon head at the base of the hilt and then added wings as wing guards. It’s clever, and I like the idea. It doesn’t look bad either! In fact, it looks pretty nice. I wonder if the author is making a hilt for the contest. If so, I wonder what he’s making. If not, I urge him to start making something for the contest. His originality would make for an interesting entry! Anyways, there are six versions of this hilt, with three different color schemes with a hilt without the blades on the saber or with them. I like this saber. I like it more than the other version. If I still played multiplayer, I’d have it replace one of my hilts. So I recommend that you download this. [/quote] ~Zach

Saber Effects Pack | 212.14 KB

screenshot, though. Basically what it looks like the author did was to overlay a bunch of filters on the blades, giving them cool (but probably random) effects. A few of the blades are quite cool though. Unfortunately for the weird sabers they will only work on the blue blade, as that is the only texture included. The other three work for all saber colors. ~Inyri




Effect Sabers (Shock & Flame) | 423.36 KB

effects to some sabers. This mod does just that in single player, although there is one big problem with it when used in multiplayer. When I tried the mod in multiplayer, the effects from the sabers were perpendicular to the direction the blade was going. So you get the effects all right, but they\'re going the wrong way, which will mostly be to the left of the model. I checked my base folder for anything that might have been interfering with this mod, but I have a very clean base folder, and I didn\'t find anything that conflicted with this. But besides the great big error, this isn\'t such a bad mod. Although I would have liked it if the flames and lightning would have changed color along with my saber blade. So, this does work in single player. Just not in mutliplayer. The author might want to make the sabers usable in single player only, because otherwise it just looks freaky in multiplayer. ~Zach




Movie Realism SP Mod

movie_realism_sp_mod.rar | 301.63 KB

creativity or effort. The author basically attempted to adjust all the stats in the base .npc and .veh files along with a couple of mods he coupled with it, (giving credits to their authors.) and made the action more \"realistic.\" First off, what kind of moving picture set are you talking about? You included bloody dismemberment, and I don\'t recall any drop of blood ever portrayed in the Star Wars movies and/or games you mention. The blood vessels get seared shut, if I\'m not mistaken, although I do wish blood and gore would be displayed on the big screen. (I made an entire remake of the trilogy with blood and gore once.) Now then, onto technical aspects. The stats are good, but the installation may be way over some folk\'s heads. The author expects you to basically know how to use winrar (since he submitted a rar) on a slightly higher level...bad assumption. In English, he just put the ext_data folder in the rar and caled it a day. It made the .rar very messy, and almost confusing. (Definitely for those who don\'t mess around in pk3s) Overall, this is for the bored souls out there who play SP and want a change. The bloody dismemberment mod can work in MP, and everything else is made basically for SP. With that said, I shall go forth and raise an undead army and march to Bangladesh. - Averus Retruthan




X-MEN Iceman\'s Power Effects | 925.07 KB

supposed to be the powers of Ice-Man from X-Men, but I can\'t make any good comparison. There are three effect changes in this mod, and all of them are variants of Ice-Man\'s powers. They all look pretty good, and I can\'t find any real flaws with the effects themselves...except that the hit effects haven\'t been changed. So you get hit by ice and it looks like you\'ve been hit by lightning. So the biggest problem with this mod is the lack of completeness. i.e. changing another set of effects. But other than that, this is a cool mod! Make sure you only have one of the effects changing pk3\'s in your folder at one time! ~Zach




Hydroball II | 8.63 MB

update of the previous version of Hydroball. This version just fixes a couple bugs and shader issues. But it's Hydroball! I certainly hope that you do know what Hydroball is. But just in case you aren't 'in the know', Hydroball is a mod inspired by Blitzball from Final Fantasy I-don't-know. And if you don't know what blitzball is, well then keep reading. :p Anyways, the point of the game is to get a little ball into the opposite team's goal. The catch? It's all underwater. Don't worry, you won't drown. You'll just swim around. Anyways, you get your weapons taken away from them, and you're left with your hands. You can tackle people, steal the ball, and launch the ball, and much more. I must admit...I was disappointed at the lack of Hydroball servers. Anyways, I'd love to see a 'Hydroball Revolution'. Vive l'Hydroball! ~Zach




JK1 In-game Sabers | 1.06 MB

Quake 3 engine came around. Back when things still looked blocky. Back when games were goooood. Hardcore JK fans will remember the hideous lightsaber blades from the game, and more likely than not they will remember those hideous blades with a bit of longing. I myself miss the ugly, very blocky lightsaber blades from Jedi Knight, despite the fact that on a 1 to 10 scale of lightsaber realism they score about a 1.2. These blades, which come very close to the originals, bring about some fond memories of the beginning of Kyle\'s journey on the Force. For those who aren\'t quite as familiar with JK as I am, I shall extrapolate. These blades are very thin, with very little glow, and are supposed to look thin and unrealistic (so don\'t complain about [i]that[/i] unless you\'ve played JK and think they look wrong). They look much more like a \"lightstick\" than a lightsaber, and the only thing keeping these blades from looking more like their JK counterparts is the Q3 engine\'s inability to look that bad. And it can look bad sometimes! So JK fans, reminisce with these replica blades. They\'re sure to remind you of better days where having fingers was not a necessity! ~Inyri

The Great Honour | 1.22 MB

mods, so here are some reviews of the previous versions. Love Path (v.11) review and Glory of the Sith (v.16) review All I\'m going to do is tell you what changes have been wrought in this version, quoted from the readme. [quote]A. Fixed all previous feature We just realize that dark force mod was unstable without over-flow protection. List of previous feature that changed : 1. Bryar Pistol : Secondary shot changed from smart bomb to missile-torpedo (electric-bomb) No more rocket lock, because it is not efficient. Damage power reduced to ideal value, higher a bit from concussion rifle. 2. All weapon : Firing rate was too fast, so we just match it with singleplayer firing rate. Reason : too fast resulting weapons become very noisy. 3. All Force : Some dark force was over-charged, so we just match it with singleplayer power. Force grip will not kill enemy too fast, just as normal as singleplayer so we can enjoy to torture our enemy. Force jump height are restored back to previous state, player can\'t fly except in quad mode. Force drain still same, when we don\'t have force to drain then it will drain enemies health (SP rules) Force absorb balance works perfect to absorb any dark force and also force telepathy. Force absorb and protect duration is 20 second for all level Force rage duration is 10 second for all level and cannot be start if your health less than 25. 4. Quad Mode redefinition (force level 4) Quad mode is a force booster works like enlightment or force boon, except that it is maximize both dark and light force ability to higher level and boost its power to either do more damaging or absorbing force powers from level 3. However, this is cheat powerups because have unlimited time. The definition for quad mode is like this : (in C++ code) # define FORCE_LEVEL_4 (FORCE_LEVEL_3 + 1) So there is no actual level 4, it just well defined as force level 3 + booster. Force level 4 ability : FP_HEAL = same as level 3 FP_LEVITATION = can fly FP_SPEED = moving 200% FP_PUSH = push harder FP_PULL = pull harder FP_TELEPATHY = same as level 3 FP_GRIP = more damaging FP_LIGHTNING = more damaging FP_RAGE = health taken more slow FP_PROTECT = can take 800 damage point FP_ABSORB = absorbing level 3 dark force FP_TEAM_HEAL = same as level 3 FP_TEAM_FORCE = same as level 3 FP_DRAIN = drain more damage FP_SEE = longer duration FP_SABER_OFFENSE = unlimited kata-chain FP_SABER_DEFENSE = same as level 3 FP_SABERTHROW = more damaging and rotating faster. Special ability : Fire-shooter with weapon melee primary attack. Double dark-force power radius (can grip, lightning, drain from double range than normal) Force power regenerated more fast and cannot be mind-tricked. 5. Cheat-Spawn command Previously when human-player spawn, they get 255 health and force also both light and dark force ability. From this version, you won\'t get it automatically because it is moved to new console command : - g_forceregentime \"\" - set your maximum health & force when spawn. (max. is 255 and min. is 50) - setforceall3 - set all of your force powers to level 3 - setforceall2 - set all of your force powers to level 2 - setforceall1 - set all of your force powers to level 1 - setforceall0 - empty all of your force powers (except saber offense) - quad - activate/deactivate quad mode. 6. Any weapon kick ability Either we use saber or any weapon, we can do kick attack by pressing BUTTON_USE + BUTTON_ATTACK How about staff saber? same as well using this combination, if you press ALT_ATTACK your staff will be throwed. Reason of this feature : we\'re all have legs, so why can\'t we use it? B. Fixed BUG : List of bug already fixed from the previous version : 1. Error when shooting dismember bomb of bryar pistol to npc rancor Problem found : Npc rancor cannot be dismembered even by saber because the model does not support dismemberment Solution : If you shot rancor with bryar pistol, the dismemberment function will be disabled to prevent error. 2. Error when throwing saber while using offensive force Problem found : Misplaced code to put the saber-throw enabled function. Solution : Moving it from PM_Movesingle(moving handling function) to PM_Weapon(weapon handling function) 3. Bad Over-Looping force heal and rage effect. Problem found : No timer added for this effect. Solution : adding new force-timer to ensure this effect play within correct delay. C. Miscellanous testing. 1. NPC follow the leader If you spawn any non-enemy npc like kyle, luke, jedi, etc. they will following you like in singleplayer. 2. NPC walking speed fixed. In multiplayer npc walking very slow and almost at zero-speed. In this mod they can walk normally. 3. Unfreeze npc Kyle Originally when we spawn npc kyle, he is freezed as cinematic entity. In this mod he is unfreezed. 4. Jetpack ground distance Originally jetpack hover height is counted from the base of the map floor and that makes glitch when moving from edge to edge. In this mod jetpack hover height is counted from gravity making it fly more high. 5. Falling death removed for human. We using gravity damage scale to decide wether you dead or alive on floor impact. More high the ground distance, more damage are taken. Falling to death only applicable for bot & npc. However you could get stuck if you still alive after falling but can\'t jump up over the top again, unless using cheat noclip or quad mode on to fly.[/quote] While some might find this mod fun, others may not like it. When I reviewed Love Path I found it to be fun, but that was me. Download if you liked the other versions. :) ~Zach

Arthenik PS: If the file does not work for you, try adding a zzzzzzzz_ prefix inf ront of the filename, there is probably a conflict between this mod and an another.




Jaden Taunts | 578.65 KB

New Lag Icons | 11.79 KB

amusing. #1 is a white square with \"LOL 999 ping 4U\" written in it. #2 is a small white skull on a black background, with the word LAG written on it in red. #3 is a pink square with \"Your Ping Sucks\" written on it. I would have taken better screenshots, but I can\'t emulate a lag spike by doing anything short of ripping my modem out of the phone line, so I didn\'t even try. Still, this little mod changes the obscure and generally boring default icon, so if you want it, go for it. Personally, I\'ll stick with the default, since I never see the lag icon anyway. ~ Kouen




Firesword | 1.83 MB

the blade to be a bit too wide. It seems the author jacked up the radius as well, making the blade look rather silly right near the hilt where there\'s a hard edge. In any case, though, the mod does what it promises -- changes the blade into a somewhat flame-ish looking one. If you\'re into that kind of thing give it a download. ~Inyri




Lightning Mod | 180.69 KB

lightning, JK2 lightning intermixed with red lightning, red lightning, each provided with and without flash effects. Now, for the addons. There are two lightning styles added, excluding the flashy versions. And they are: Green-Yellow style, and flames. While there is already a flame lightning effect within JA+, you might like to burn those stupid stormtroopers in singleplayer. And as for the green-yellow style..try to stay away from that. Yes, it\'s a nice attempt, but it doesn\'t look that great if you\'re attacking someone with what looks like green and yellow streamers. Other than that, it\'s not that bad. Remember, you can only have [b]one[/b] of the pk3\'s in your base folder. ~Zach

Lightning Mod | 1.83 MB

accurate to JK2's lightning. It *may* have been simply copied over, but I can't prove it either way, so I'm not going to go down that road. The second style is red lightning. This one actually reminds me more of drain than lightning,but it's definitely not the same effect as drain uses. Style #3 combines the red lightning with a bluer version of JK2's lightning. It looks pretty cool, despite not looking very much like a lightning storm. Next up is the red lightning again, only this time with no flash effects. And, finally, we have a blue and purple lightning effect which also has a purple flash effect and a deep blue glow. Check the screenshots out, and if you like any of these, download the pack and try them out. Just be aware that you can [b]only have one of these pk3s[/b] in the base folder at any one time. ~ Kouen




Blur Sabers | 42.92 KB

mod might not be for you. Well, this is a very interesting little saber mod, I know I’ve seen super long staff sabers before, but I don’t recall seeing dual super long staff sabers (i.e. one in each hand) although it may have been done before, I’m not sure. :S These sabers are very powerful, and because they are so long and move so fast, they seem to be able to easily block any normal saber. I tested this with a server full of annoying bots and I was able to beat any of them within several seconds of swinging these sabers around! Besides that there’s not really much more I can say, these sabers are unusual, and certainly effective! ;) There were a few small bugs that I noticed here though. To select the super long blades, simply select the guardian hilt in the dual or single saber menu. However once you put this .pk3 in your base folder, you can no longer select the Guardian hilt in the staff saber menu. :S One other thing I noticed is that the animations seem a bit jerky at times, but that’s probably as a result of modifying the sabers. All in all though a cool little mod here! :) I look forward to seeing more files from this author in the future! Just remember though If you have any problems with flashing or strobe lights, then this mod might not be for you! ~Nozyspy~




BaseJKA | 1.22 MB

it should be. To quote the changes listed in the read-me: [quote]- Fixed /say command buffer overflow. - Fixed server command buffer overflow. - Fixed problems while voting in TFFA. - Fixed the black name, now ^0 makes your nick black, no more need to ^^0. - Fixed big messages color replacement bug. - Fixed the sliding while standing on top of someone. - Now taunts are allowed in all gametypes. - While dueling you can't collide with anyone outside the duel. - Multiple FFA Private Duels. - Private Duels in TFFA Allowed. - Added /announce command to enable admins to print big messages in the center of player's screens. - Added the possibility to have taunts in all gametypes.[/quote]This mod also adds several new admin cvars, in case you don't like one or more of these changes and would like to turn them off. Sounds like it could be handy for those server admins who find that mods like JA+ just change too much for their tastes. ~Inyri




Xhuzan Tzu's Saber Sound Modification | 865.21 KB

was changed. However as with all sound set they really need to be tested in order to be understood, on an individual level, so since it's not a huge download I urge all those who enjoy new saber soundsets to give it a try. There are no completely new sounds here, just modifications and tweaks of the original sounds to make them more consistent with other lightsaber sounds from other sources. ~Inyri




Jedi Academy Empire Mod | 1.44 MB

mods. It does include quite a few admin commands, usable in-game or via rcon, a small number of client commands, and of course several emotes. It certainly sounds like a very well-thought-out and useful mod, especially for those who are tired of some of the other mods that \'tweak\' the gameplay to such an extent that it is almost completely different. Here you get all the benefits of iron-fisted server control without all the junk. There\'s no way I could go into complete detail on a mod like this, because if I did I\'d just be repeating everything in the read-me. The documentation is very clearly organized and arranged into easy-to-read tables, so please check it out! That would be the read-me that [i]isn\'t[/i] posted down below, since it\'s in an HTML file for easier reading. ~Inyri

that there is a great chance to remove one's head should they choose to wield this as a single or dual wield saber, but... to each his or her own.

It's now available in all three saber forms. ~Inyri




New Jaden Taunts | 479.57 KB

into some more appropriate taunts, gloats, and victory sounds. That means that this set will still be most useful in single-player, but definitely could be a good thing for multiplayer as well. It comes with both a "Jedi" version and a "Sith" version, with sounds appropriate for each. Just pick one to use, though! ~Inyri





although the number of variants is low. Still, they're there! We have blue, red, yellow, and green, though the green looks a lot like the default shield color. I personally kind of like the yellow one. Easy to see, and is kind of neat. Not like silly yellow corvettes... Ugh. Remember, pick [i]one[/i] color to put in your base folder! ~Inyri




Just Another HUD | 452.53 KB

readme explain: [quote] A mod that makes the health and shield bar white, the ammo bar blue, the force bar red, and the background red with blue trim.[/quote] I spose if you like those colours then you might like this mod, or even if your just looking for a change from the normal HUD colours (which do get a bit boring after playing JKA for years lol), then you might like this also ;) Personally I quite like this mod, so well done to the author there, keep up the modding! :D ~Nozyspy~




Extreme Difficulty Mod | 33.32 KB

for those of us who have never tried it with difficulty above Jedi. Not that I uh, know anyone who is that bad *cough.* ;) The increased difficulty is done by altering four game variables; Amount of healing given by restorative items, length of your saber and that of the enemies sabers, speed of weapon fire and of course, the NPC\'s now have a bigger HP level. I believe one of the mercenaries took 3 thermal detonators to the face before he died. And then I\'d run out of ammo, and got killed. Even the Howlers on the introductory mission managed to snuff me out, but that may be more down to my skill than the increased difficulty of the game. :( If you want a more difficult single-player campaign, I can\'t really see any reason why you wouldn\'t at least want to [b]try[/b] this - it doesn\'t appear to have any bugs or unwanted side-effects. Perhaps the power of \'Force Heal\' and drain could have been reduced as well for further difficulty, but that\'s not so big an issue. The bigger question is, do you really want to play the Single-Player campaign any longer than is absolutely necessary? ;) ~Szico VII~




Republic Commando Duel Music 2 | 6.24 MB

perfectly adequate for duels. They also sound a little bit like the style of the Matrix soundtrack, with some final fantasy thrown in. My main criticism of these songs is that some of them have some rather long drawn-out sections within them, where there\'s no real action in the music, and consequently doesn\'t have the desired effect when In a duel. I also get the impression that these could get old to listen to very quickly, considering many sections of them sound similar - there are not many focal or catchy sections. Still, maybe that\'s what people look for in their duel music. ~Szico VII~

recycled sound from somewhere else. It sounds fine, though, and will probably be a fresh change of pace for some. Give it a download if you're looking for a change. ~Inyri




Final Fantasy VII: One Winged Angel Full Symphony | 4 MB

despite not liking this song at all, likely due to peer pressure. Hey, even I crack! What makes this version better is it's not strictly what you remember as One Winged Angel. It goes off on a little tangent for a while, which is nice. Then of course you get back to your typical chanting, but the orchestral backing of it just makes it so much cooler. I still, however, consider this Uematsu's big failing in FF7's music. But I know a lot of people can't get enough of it, and if you're one of those people, download this for sure. Now if someone [i]really[/i] wants to add One Winged Angel music that would make good duel music, try the Advent Children version. The hard guitars would really fit into a duel atmosphere, better than an orchestral piece ;) ~Inyri




No Shield Effect | 7.49 KB

seem more like the movies. The bad part is that if, like me, you don't use your HUD that often, it makes it rather difficult to judge when you're hit or not. It'll also work for your opponents, which makes it difficult to tell if you hit them or not. Personally, I can't see myself using this mod too much since it causes some problems for the gameplay. I guess it could make things slightly more realistic, however. ~IfritZero




Revans Episode 3 Blades | 32.49 KB

glow, made them a little pointier, and added the base glow. So this means that the core is still a bit fatter than the thin ones in Episode III. The tip of the blade gets cut off at the top of the texture, so it doesn\'t come to a point like it\'s supposed to. For a first saber mod, it isn\'t that bad, just not really accurate to what it\'s supposed to represent. ~IfritZero




Snowball Mod | 6.28 KB

new year, a new mod, and a new review :) ) What this mod basically does, for those who can\'t already tell, is give you some snowvballs to chuck at people. It replaces the thermal detonator, and lowers the damage somewhat. Firstly, I really enjoyed this mod, mostly because it\'s Christmas and I\'m in a festive mood - but also because it\'s actually not a bad mod either ;) You have both types of throw, as with the thermal detonator, one which bounces (slightly more than a normal snowball would I might add,) and one which puffs in a cloud of snow upon impact, leaving a white splodge behind. The effect of snow splatting up is a bit odd-looking, more like blobs than the powder you\'d expect, so when you release this mod again next year, maybe have a look into that ;) Overall its a true seasonal mod, which best of all, is really fun to play with! Sure the novelty will wear off by January, but till then have a blast! ~Szico VII~ (It appears the file uploaded to our servers had somehow become corrupted, so I\'ve reuploaded and posted the file.)




Republic Commando Duel Music | 12.35 MB

game, I know some of them. And yeah, I can really imagine listening to them in a fast-paced duel. I\'m not much of a dueler anymore, I\'m an RPer, so I went to a random server and tried a few of them out (thanks for the duels guys!). I found out that, apart from the fact that I\'m a horrible dueler, they\'re really nice and fit in. Well, most of them do, \"They Must Be Asleep\" was... sleepy. I\'ll definately keep Vode An (that\'s one of the tracks) in my base folder, and there\'s a decent chance that you\'ll do the same if you grew tired of the standard duel atmosphere - definately worth a try. PS: I hope the author doesn\'t mind that I merged 2 of his music packs together, they were called part 1 and 2, so I assumed it\'ll be fine. Arthenik




Improved Saber Sounds Frequency Mod | 2.29 MB

clearly said it in the readme, but the practicality of adding more sounds to lower the frequency at which each individual sound is played is a but odd. It seems something that belongs in a much larger mod. And it\'s not even entirely a sound mod, as the screenshots tell you. It\'s just a pack of randomly selected changes. The saber sounds which have been modified don\'t quite sound all that good. There is nothing wrong with adding all sorts of new sounds, but not when the integrity of the sounds is sacrificed—quality not quantity is a significant problem with the mod. I liked the author\'s choices for sounds, but the movie rips are not of high quality, and I can often hear part of the movie in the sound. I, once or twice, could even identify the [i]Star Wars[/i] film from which the sound had been ripped, which isn\'t a good sign. It\'s not a good sign for the mod because the sounds need to be independent from the films, indistinguishable and beautiful, and it\'s also not a good sign for me if I can identify a one second sound from a film. Also changed were some of the clash effects, which I actually liked. They were irrelevant to the mod and had nothing to do with it, but alone, they were still likable. They looked far more accurate to the films, in their largeness and sudden flashes of brightness. They consisted of the saber flare when sabers collide and changing the sparks, which I liked a lot better than the default, for they looked more natural. These would be more recommendable, however, if they were included within a much larger mod or within a small saber effects mod, but with a sound mod? I can\'t recommend sounds that really don\'t sound good, and aren\'t edited well, and they just lack purpose or direction. Sounds need to take you somewhere, to make the game more enjoyable because you are hearing different, more film-canon sounds. The saber swing sounds sound more like just moving a saber, which gives this mod a lazy feeling—a lazy Jedi is unheard of. These sounds never really some together and make an experience, and then effects are thrown in… it\'s a bit of a mess. —Ra-Kom




Anakin EP3 Startup Screen | 1.12 MB

they're alright - they're clips on Anakin from the film - but for some reason hearing Anakin talk whenever I click a button bothers me. For the starting button it'd be fine, but for back and click I personally would've preferred something a little less... vocal. Perhaps you guys feel differently, though, so feel free to have a look! I'm sure a lot of you will enjoy it. ~Inyri




Thunder Shield | 30.36 KB

effect itself is also neat. Instead of the green shield you have now, this new effect will make it blue, and give it something of a lightning effect. The effect does look pretty cool. It's worth a try if you're tired of the green shield, or just prefer blue a little better. I might even keep it, just to change things up a bit. ~Inyri




New Saber Stances | 8.46 MB

Episode 3. The problem with a mod like this is that, no matter how much effort you put into it, or whether you use new animations or recycle animation frames from the default GLA, they all look the same, and it's already been done about a dozen times. However the bonus to this is you [i]just[/i] get these stances, with no other content cluttering them up. They're worth it, if you're not looking for the "extras" that some other stance mods come with. ~Inyri




Luke Mod | 947 B

the config file. This is probably an easier way of making this mod than the norm, but possible more confusing to [i]use[/i] than if it was just selectable in the single-player menu. The mod, however, works just as it is supposed to, giving you Luke's sounds and all. Make sure to also note that for undying mode, you will need to edit the CFG, but the author explains this in the trouble-shooting section of the file. ~Inyri

RotJ Darth Vader \'Breathing\' Hilt | 787.6 KB

A simple yet, clever mod to an existing saber hilt, worthy of a download especially with Marz\' Darth Vader model. Download away, I\'ve made a screenshot that pretty much describes the mod and shows a picture of the hilt too. -Rink




Yun's Saber | 523.6 KB

author advises in order for this to overwrite, both files need to be used. The Yun saber itself appears fairly sleak and smooth, with the author using two seperate shaders to add to it's glimmer. The actual concept derived from the Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight series. Now I did a search on this and came up empty handed as far as imagies go, and not being overly familiar with that game, I wouldnt know. But the saber is quite nice, simple in design, with no glitches being found. This would be a nice saber addition to someone's collection. ~LK~




Kyle Katarn SP | 9.13 MB

twist. The author has given us the choice to replace the original Kyle NPC with Jaden, in case you don\'t like talking to yourself. At first I was thinking that\'d be really neat, but even though it\'s better than having two Kyles you still have the problem of hearing Kyle\'s voice coming out of Jaden and Jaden\'s voice coming out of Kyle. Also it seems he forgot to add the Kyle menu skin, so you get a very untextured Jaden when Kyle\'s briefing/debriefing you on your missions. I was happy to hear that Kyle has the right combat sounds, though. I was worrying we\'d be hearing Jaden grunts as well. ~Inyri




One Hit Kill Mod | 613.2 KB

saber_dikodoum | 1.67 KB

use this online, that could basically be construed as cheating. This is a novelty saber, to be used for a few minutes of fun. There is no challenge with these, but it\'s funny for a few minutes.[/quote]Aside from that, it was somewhat amusing. I\'m quite used to the crotchsaber by now, though, which is usually caused by a mistake in saber tags. However since this mod doesn\'t actually have a model I\'m assuming it\'s caused by adding an additional six saber blades which have no tags ;). View the screenshots and decide for yourself whether it\'s something you want to download or not. I\'d definitely download it for a laugh, if for nothing else. ~Inyri




Movie Sounds | 1.3 MB

because of the very misleading read-me the author provided. The saber sounds in this mod come from the Movie Battles mod by Avadann Kedeth. The rest of the sounds supposedly come from Jedi Academy and have just been rearranged. To be honest, I didn't like most of them. The only one that really fits is the blaster pistol. The rest are just strange. The bowcaster now sports the X-wing laser sounds (supposedly this is supposed to be like in RotS, but I think I would have remembered laughing upon hearing that). The blaster pistol is, as I said, the sound from Han's blaster, which is the only one I liked. The concussion rifle has the sounds from the large emplaced ion cannons, while the disruptor sports the tusken rifle sounds. The rocket launcher's sounds aren't actually that bad, though I prefer the original. If you're looking for some spice in your sounds, feel free to download this. ~Inyri




Bakumatsu Saber Sound Stances | 1.56 MB

animation frames to give each of the single-saber styles a new look. Blue style is based on Yoda\'s saber stance, yellow style is based on the Darth Vader vs. Ben Kenobi duel, and red is based on Anakin vs. Dooku. These stances all seem to look pretty good in-game. I really must question the author\'s decision to change the walk and run animations for the single saber. As I was running along with my single blade I felt (and sounded) like a herd of stampeding cattle. The author just moved some of the dual/staff animations to the single blade walk/run animations. I personally don\'t like them, but then again I never liked those animations to begin with. This truly is a matter of personal taste. The new saber sounds reminded me suspiciously of the saber sounds from Dark Forces 2, which makes me wonder if the author didn\'t just rip them from that game. I\'ll give him the benefit of the doubt, though. They are placed in a separate PK3, so you can choose whether you want to use them or not. Overall this is a pretty good mod, and not something you see very often. If you\'re looking for a little bit of variety, or like the saber stances from the movies, this may be a download for you. ~Inyri

Yuna Duel Music | 1.48 MB

said... I would have no clue. Either way, the music is a piano piece that is very soft, gentle.. pleasant sounding..... almost made me not wanna duel out of feeling bad lol. Again.. If your an FF7 fan, or better yet, a Yuna fan, you might be interested in this mod. Take a look see. -Lizardking




Serenity Mod | 9.28 MB

First impressions are... it\'s very pink, but fortunately Rink is feeling very Pink today :D. The menus are solid and well put together, it looks nice and certainly looks like it took alot of work. Next are the loading screens and the startup screen, they basically consist of a picture of 2 ewoks, very well put together, clean and effective. The ingame stuff is great, the HUD is cool, just not my style but I LOVE THE CROSSHAIR, although I\'m not planning on using all of the mod, I will definitely use that crosshair, it\'s awesome. There is also some new duel music, which is the main star wars theme (y\'know the yellow text coming down at the beginning of the movie theme lol). Overall a cool mod that is worth checking out, good job. -Rink




Movie Star Siege | 7.27 MB

a look at the models in multiplayer. If you\'ve lost me, don\'t worry. This is, as the name suggests, a Siege mod which basically replaces old siege classes/characters with more prominent ones such as darth vader. Whilst the models/skins are not on review here, as they are from other author\'s, the mod itself has proved extremely hard to get a good look at, so I\'m going to direct you to the readme for any indepth information. However from what I did manage to try, this mod seems to work perfectly fine, and although it\'s not particularly inspiring, if you wanted to play as Darth in Siege, well, this is for you. The Han Solo models/skins aren\'t as high quality as the Darth Vader, by Mars Marshall, but it has the general appearence of him. So yeah, If you\'re a siege player (which I confess I have only played once ) and you want a new character, have a look. Oh, all the skins/models here are available in multiplayer as well as siege, so If you have the individual pk3 files for these models, you will need to remove them :) ~Szico VII~




Nina: Undiscovered Secret | 21.67 MB

completed. I\'m not saying that there is no ending - I\'m sure there probably is. I just didn\'t play that far into the game. I enjoyed what I did explore. The mod has some combat here and there, but more than anything there are little puzzles that you need to solve to complete your objective. It\'s a tad predictable, but satisfying because it\'s not too hard. Now my biggest issue with this mod is the dialogue. Not only is it TERRIBLY written (okay, there were a few funny things here and there, but generally it could\'ve been better), but there isn\'t any voice acting. So make sure you have your subtitles on before playing. This really ruined it for me. I couldn\'t lose myself in the story. And the text was too fast, at that. Is it still worth a download? Absolutely. I think you\'ll enjoy the mod itself. It just would\'ve been nice if they had gone that extra step and gotten some people to record the lines and had someone else go over the dialogue. Great job, anyway, though! ~AmosMagee

Open Wound Mod | 132.84 KB

Not very convincing that you just slashed someone\'s flesh with a laser, is it? Well, this mod will fix that. It\'s not a blood mod, but rather an open wound mod. Stab someone with your saber with this mod and you\'ll see a gory wound instead. ~AmosMagee




Star Wars Saga Saber Sounds | 1.74 MB

too loud and don\'t feel like they fit in the game very well. There were some saber block sounds like in the \"Sith\" pack that also grated on my nerves. Other than that, they sound ... exactly ... the ... same. Only way for you to find out though, is to download this and try it yourself. ~AmosMagee

LotR Duel Music | 5.58 MB

new duel music. Like this piece that has been taken from Lord of the Rings. It\'s great for dueling. It\'s exciting, but not too fast paced. Enjoy! ~AmosMagee




The Weird Tournament | 10.77 MB

supposed to be easy. Psh. They have like, a million hp or something. And with as many times as you have to hit them - their cute little Jawa sounds really start to grate on your nerves. There are some other guys and levels that are just ... well, they live up to the title of this mod. Download it and try it, and I wish you luck. There's no way you can beat this without using cheats. That's my biggest complaint. The enemies are just too hard to beat. I mean, I love quirky - Katamari Damacy is one of my favorite games this year. I also love the idea of those weird ones packed full of mini-games. That'd be great to see. Someone making a JK mod with just a bunch of mini-games. Anyway, I'm off topic. Do I recommend this mod? Not at all. But if you want an insane challenge, download it. :P ~AmosMagee




New Jedi NPCs | 2.46 KB

along with other species. These are also compatible in singleplayer as “/playermodel [whatever.” Most of these skins are, well, blue. While I’m not fond of that shade, I suppose the convenience of this outweighs it. Two of the featured npcs are the ones the author and his friend used in singleplayer. While I honestly don’t think too many people worry about that sort of stuff, it is interesting to see how other people are creating their characters. Either way, if you need some new npcs for whatever purpose (filming, fighting, etc), this is probably a nice place to start. ~Wassup1444465




Halo 2 Duel Music | 5.64 MB

(I’m sure you can figure out which) in my opinion. Duel music isn’t quite a “useless,” but more of a “why bother” type of file. I myself play with my JKA music off, and I just insert winamp whenever I decide I need to listen to something. Usually though, unless it’s a UT04 match, I just keep all music off. It’s a lot easier to tell what’s coming at you when the only things you hear are guns, you know? Well, Rink here has some Halo 2 duel music. It’s the first track from the CD, which is the main Halo2 theme. Meh. There are some better songs on that CD to use for fighting, but I guess people must like this one a bit more. It’s also been slightly edited as far as fade-ins and fadeouts go to be more dueler friendly. So… yea. It’s pretty and you duel to it, as Amy told us to say. If this is your sort of thing, you might want to try it.




Single Bladed Staff | 76.91 KB

replaces your normal staff saber with a single bladed staff. While I myself have used these in the past, and while I do think they were nifty at a time, this file has been done too many times. I myself even made one of these a while back, and a few people made some other variants before me and after me. I’m not quite sure why you would want this. Why? It replaces one of the base staff hilts with the single bladed. That’s definitely NOT a good idea, because it means server admins can’t use it or else the clients are effected, and clients can’t use it because it’s server side. Sure, it’s relatively simple to make it a new hilt, but the author didn’t. Still, if you’ve missed these before or want to learn to make .sab files, I suppose this could be a reference, although quite a basic one. ~Wassup1444465




Anthem For Saving The Galaxy | 3.54 MB

heard it, I though it sounded kind of like an Irish dance. I never played Halo before, so I wouldn\'t be too familiar with it. It takes “Truth And Reconciliation Suite” and “Rock Anthem For Saving The World”, and combines them into 1 file. Both pieces were composed by Martin O\'Donnell/Michael Salvatori. This file has excellent quality, and lasts for 3 minutes, 52 seconds. I can’t wait to see the Halo 2 duel music mods that will come out. This author has a sense of humor, in his readme: [quote] Size: 3,722,889 bytes. (Too big for you? Byte me.) [/quote] Its always nice to know someone has a sense of humor. :) If you want, you can listen to this music without needing to go into a duel by typing in the console: /music music/mp/duel.mp3 Nice job! Title: Truth And Reconciliation Suite & Rock Anthem For Saving The World Composer: Martin O\'Donnell/Michael Salvatori Soundtrack: Halo Original Soundtrack Length: 3:52 (3 minutes, 52 seconds) -Airm




JA+ Mod v2.2 | 6.11 MB

the same zip file making it far easier to post them and distribute! 1.8 see's several improvements, a lot of them bug fixes, stuff like emotes being buggy. Speaking from a mapping perspective though I do have a problem with emotes, in my latest map I made a dialing Stargate and fans will know the wormhole blast kills you if you go near it...if a person uses an emote they can be in front of the gate as it activates and they'll be just fine...I think this mod would benefit from a mapper being able to work around emote's being a protection. The previous review(s) anyhow: Quote: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Okay, a cascading quoting thing of reviews... or something: Quote: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- My review of the last version of this mod: Quote: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I happen to know for a fact that JA+ is a very popular mod and it continues to grow in popularity. I'm just going to go over a few features that were added to this version. Clan Speak: How cool is this? There's a clan password that you set and now clans can chat privately via the console. It's like the /amsay feature, but you don't have to be an admin to chat here. New Emotes: There are a few new emotes included like amdie, amkneel and amfinishinghim. Toggle Amthrow: Now admins can control which players can amthrow you. New Admin Commands: Included are amrename, amlockteam and amforceteam. Very helpful commands. Also, there is a little issue when your server.cfg has too many sets - apparently, this mod corrects that. All of this is new just for the 1.5 version. The 1.4 version has a lot more too. So take a look at the readme to find out all about what the author included. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Slider is quick with his updates to his JA+ mod. Version 1.6 includes the ability to scale your model, there's are new DFA's, you can allow or disallow the use of black names, several new emotes, and all of the old ones have been recoded. There are a ton of fixes and even more added features. In fact, just read the readme. There's too much to list. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Slider once again updates his very popular JA+ mod. There was apparently a nasty little bug that would crash servers with the use of force push or pull. No idea what that was all about - but glad it's fixed! Very interesting little thing added to help control a server. Now players can vote whether to sleep another player or not. Of course, this could be abused just like when you enable voting to kick another player. But it still might be useful on servers where there are some honorable regulars without admins present. Along with that new vote type, you can also, as the server admin decide which vote types you want to allow the server. Maybe you don't mind the players choosing the map they want to play on, but you don't want them voting to kick anyone. That's a great feature, Slider. And yay! Ampoll was added! This would be perfect for my CTF games. Often I just use ampsay to take a vote. There's a ton of stuff here, so read through the readme for all of the features that Slider included in 1.7. It seems that his mod keeps getting better and better. I wonder what he'll have for 1.8? Or maybe this is the final version? Nah ... mods like this are never really finished. ~AmosMagee -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Go those build up of quotes!...and I say JA+ V on the site so it's not over yet -WadeV1589- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Okay so this is the Windows/Linux server side version of the new JA+ Mod same as usual there are bug fixes including animations. Also there are two new force moves! One called Sith Kiss which is the same as drain. I do believe that this is the SP face grip thingie, didn't look at this part too much myself. There is also a jedi only skill called force whirlwind which is used in close range to knock an enemy back. Static emotes are working again now, so you can't run around while sitting, new anti vote spam and anti macro spam and a load of other stuff which is included in the readme.[/quote] It would be impossible for me to list and describe every feature in this mod - simply because I don't have that much time on my hands. ;) So to just name a few ... with the JA+ mod you can have multiple duels at once, even full force duels, and all of those duels can be isolated so there's no duel interference, there's clan tag protection, option of having multiple taunts, lots of new emotes, a profanity filter, model size scaling system, new items including a grapple hook (perfect if you've just downloaded the new Spiderman skin) and a ton of other features. The newest features for the mod include a Mac patch so that Mac users (are there any out there? If so, freakin' email me ... I have a map I need you to test) can start a JA+ server, a JA+ server tracker, the clan tag protection I already mentioned, and Slider improved some of the already present features. This is an incredible mod that I would definitely be using because it's so configurable if I still ran a JA mod. Great work here. But I wonder, will it ever be done? ;) ~AmosMagee

Concussion Repeater Effects | 4.02 KB

think it's a bad mod, but it doesn't really offer anything useful. Overall, I don't think it's [i]extremely[/i] useful, but you might enjoy this if you're tired of the orignal repeater effect. :P -TiM
