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]




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




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]




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!




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




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-




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




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]

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.




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




-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




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~




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

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




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




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(




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




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...




First Person Lightsaber Mod | 1.79 KB




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




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




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




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




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




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~




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




-[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




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

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




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




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




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~




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




Blacklight_saber | 65.27 KB

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




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




New SP Species | 1.34 MB

their own combat sounds, though you will of course still hear Jaden's voice for the single-player cutscenes. They each also have torso/head/lower icons for the selection menu. 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




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




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~




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




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




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~




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




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~




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




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




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




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




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~




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




Cheat Menu | 49.64 MB

popular and useful cheats are on this menu and you have instant access to them. I found no bugs or anything, so it works pretty well. For those of you who are tired of typing in all of those cheat commands into the console, this is for you! Have fun everybody! This is definitely worth a download. :) [b]Note:[/b] Instructions are below in the readme! ~Syyrax




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




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]




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




Ultimate General Grievous | 6.59 MB

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




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~




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




Mara Jade SP | 4.52 MB

straightforward mod. ~AmosMagee




JK3 Saber Menu Mod | 5.42 KB

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! ~AmosMagee




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]




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...




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




Random Duel Mod Demo | 112.4 MB

basically; the mod contains a series of encounters, usually between 2 people, though more may be added depending on the situation. A number of these encounters are just random and non-canon, as the mod itself proclaimed...and some of these are just plain...silly? Before I get into the encounters themselves, let me just first state that there are a lot of things to look through. The majority of these encounters are very simplistic, with no real set objectives(as long as you don't die, you can do whatever you please,) with only minimal guidance from menu/levelshot info. Some of these could be as simple as 1v1, and some of these can be a [b]HUGE MESS[/b] of NPCs. Like, Metro Crowd squeezing into a clown car mess. I shall now take this time to describe some of the individual encounters, to give you a better idea of what to expect. [b]Episode 4-6 Encounter Samples[/b] [b]- Luke vs. the Rancor:[/b] A classic ROTJ skirmish that takes place in the Raven rancor duel pit map. Honestly, this battle was way too biased, as are both beast encounters, as playing as a beast in this mod gives you no advantage whatsoever. Essentially, if you've ever tried /playermodel rancor and wampa, you've seen that your attack cycle is practically infinite, and somehow this works out to your detriment, as I was completely unable to hit Luke and ended up dying faster than the rancor ended up dying when I was playing Luke. Lame. [b] - The Deathstar Assault:[/b] This is one of the mock spacebattles that the mod promises to give you, except...well basically, instead of you driving the vehicles that Jedi Academy snuck into the mix, you're just a regular player with the X-wing model. You basically get a slew of default Raven guns with different EFX and sounds, and you fight probe droids disguised as tie fighters. Each encounter like this has a custom map, all of which say "rushed" to me. [b]- The Battle of Hoth:[/b] This is just one of those maps where basically, there's a HUGE pot of NPCs and you have to shoot the opposing side down. Apparently every Hoth rebel had the ability to cartwheel like a matrixer and the snowtroopers were not so blessed. The map is a sloppy snow plain with some rigid placement of snowtroopers, other NPCs, and hoth map objects in random locales. Overall, a huge lag-fest for lower-end PCs. [b] - Tusken Ambush:[/b] The fascinating tale of how a tusken who can jump 8 feet in the air led an ambush party to destroy Luke Skywalker and Ben Kenobi. This just made me facepalm because the map is basically a rectangle with a single ridge in it, and you play as a tusken with force and can square off against an old jedi master. Yeah, very meek execution




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.




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




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~




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




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

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

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~




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

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!

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




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




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




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

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

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




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

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




Attack of the Clones: Total Conversion Demo | 53.15 MB

and an early demo, at that. You might recognize a few features from other mods. There\'s a profanity filter, like the one found with xMod. It also has RGB sabers, which offers quite a bit of variety. There\'s an illegal macro/script detection and deletion thingy. You can\'t use force while saber down (I\'m sure that feature can be toggled on and off), admins can teleport someone by name, not just by origins. So there\'s a lot of stuff here that should make admins very happy. :) There are new gametypes and all of the JK2 gametypes. There\'s an Anti-Lag system and there\'s a file that stores banned IP\'s, much like in the JA/JAR mod. Probably the coolest new feature is weather control. You can add lightning, rain and a sandstorm all at once. :) From what I understand, this is like, the mod to end all mods. ;) There are more gametypes that will be added and there\'s a ton of other stuff you can expect in later releases. Keep at it guys! Great work! ~AmosMagee Ps. This review is like, dedicated to Plague, for no particular reason - except that he asked that I dedicate a review to him. ;)




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.

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




DarthStevenus\'s Lightning Enhancement Pack v1.0 | 108.62 MB

Academy. Well, DarthStevenus to the rescue, and then some! :) I don\'t know why this is listed as a mini-mod when it is anything but. Todays package, is new effects for Force Lightning, or as I like to call it now, \"Force F*** You!, mwahaha! }> The only thing is that you can only have ONE variant installed at a time. Me personally, I\'ve love to see a mod made that lets you cycle through all the different effects and colours within the game itself, but I suspect that would be impossible. Still, you\'re spoilt for choice with this pack as it stands at the moment. :) Not only do you get a selection of new effects for Force Lightning (I love the data beam variant), but you also get a new Force Lightning stance, a new Force Push effect, a new lightsaber, and 3 slightly modified weapons. This is most definitely, a win. :) [b]New Sounds:[/b] Yes [b]New Animations:[/b] Yes [b]New Effects:[/b] Yes [b]New Models:[/b] Yes [b]New Textures:[/b] Yes -SuperSmeg




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. 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. :P 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~




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]




Jedi Academy Update | 98.87 MB

for the original package. Enjoy! [/quote] This includes restoring original sounds for certain JK2 characters(including desann, the shadowtroopers, jan, [b]ACTUAL Reelo Baruk[/b] sounds, bespin cop, etc,) some REALLY great vehicle sounds(loved 'em so much I'm keepin 'em,) and of course some other fun goodies like lightsaber effects, pistol effects, what have you, as well as -- like Noob explained -- everything that the [file="117490"]JO Update[/file] offered. Now, what would have been great is if you could have restored the old reborn sounds and threw in the old colors as well. That's definitely something this pack was missing, but considering you can probably get like 10 copies of that around here, it's no big deal. All in all, it's one solid as hell pack, and worth every Megabit. A stellar job, J.N.. You definitely hit it out of the park with this pack, far as I'm concerned. Good pack. Worth a peek. Get it. - Averus Retruthan




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~




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




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~




bloodPLUS revision 4.1 | 1.4 MB

but anyways, that’s just the way I feel about it. Here we have a new blood mod from the very aptly named bloodthirstydood, which adds some new features over the previous version of his mod, as listed in the readme: [quote] This is a revision of a mod by me already on here. It covers dismemberment as well. What is new: new look, better effects, simpler images.[/quote] As he also mentions, this mod works in both Singleplayer and Multiplayer, although in Singleplayer there appears to be extra effects available, whereas the Multiplayer version is a little more limited. There are some new ‘fleshy’ splattering sounds for when you hit people and you get more of an explosion or a cloud of blood, rather than a simple splattering or spurting. Although I must point out that since a Lightsaber would cauterise a wound as soon as it cut through the flesh, there probably wouldn’t be any huge spurting or splashes of blood. :P Ehem, if Lightsaber’s were real, of course! Anyway, if this mod is your kind of thing (although admittedly it isn’t to my tastes) then give it a download! ~Nozyspy~




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~

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]

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)




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-




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-

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~




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




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




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




The Clone Wars Lightsabers | 1.31 MB

himself: [quote]Version 4: Made the cores curve at the bottom giving them the illusion of coming out of the emitter as well as changed the colors. Fixed the fog around the glow and fixed the saber screen. Everything should work perfectly, now.[/quote] And that it does. I hereby declare this mod fully operational. [b]*stamp*[/b] So, with everything fixed and no oddities detected, one could say this mod isn't bad. Not bad at all. The one thing that sticks out about this mod in my most humble onion, is that when you kata, that obnoxious nimbus of glowing heresy is no longer present. Instead, you can actually see your blade spinning in action, and yet the afterglow still remains. It's really quite refreshing, I must say. Well, it took a few tries, but this mod finally is worthy of my recommendation(as if that's some huge honor ¬_¬ XD) I hereby command all masses within the sound of my text to acquire this piece of media. NOW =_= - Averus Retruthan




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




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~




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~

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




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




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




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




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




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~




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? Like Dark Side Force? This mod is for you! ~ Innocent Hawk




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




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

sounds remain, and the saber hum sound still has a lightsaber hum sound in it too, so it isn\'t \'empty\'. 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




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




New Jumpz Animation | 8.24 MB

that, the best characters that this should be used with, are ones that are seen to be able to fly in their respective genres. It does basically look like you are flying for 1.5 seconds. Perfect for use in screenshots, especially with models like [url=\";68265/\"] this[/url], or maybe even the Neo model included in [url=\";82931/\"] this pack[/url]. [b]New Animation:[/b] Yes [b]New Sounds:[/b] No -SuperSmeg




JAX White Light Saber | 447.81 KB

be like \"...Whut?\" Basically, from the standard view, the black saber looks like it has teeth, the way it pulsates and wobbles. \'Tis simply odd. Another strangeity is definitely at the tip: Thar be a fading point between the very tip and the blade beef itself. Kinda bothersome, actually, given how noticeable it is. Other than that, supposed to look like your standard TFU black saber. There y\'go. Beep. - Averus Retruthan




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




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~




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




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~




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

Jedi Academy Unleashed | 1.81 MB

Stormtroopers have Force powers. Nothing much to say about this particular mod apart from the necessaries. Most jedi/sith have FULL lvl 3 force powers on every power. and the Stormtrooper now push me away with force push :/ ~Rets




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




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




KOTOR Saber Pack | 23.22 KB

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...




Dual Staffs | 1.34 KB

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.




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

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




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~




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




Burning "Grunge" Vader Startup Screen | 499.85 KB

right mind loves Darth Vader, but the author added his own personal flavor to it by grunging it up a little. The image itself looks very nice, but is that all? Nope. We even get new buttons, which is something most launcher creators don't include. The opening sound is a clip of Vader's breathing - very fitting. The launch sound is the ever-typical "I find your lack of faith disturbing." Overall I find that this launcher, while good looking on its own, has that little bit extra that makes it really neat. If you are a Vader fan (and honestly, who isn't?) you may want to take a look at this. ~Inyri




Angered the Balance God (Dark Force Mod v2) | 1.02 MB

but it does ALOT more than 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.[/quote] I must say, I\'m glad that the author chose to make a version 2, because there have been some nice changes and new features put in place on this mod. With these changes, more balance has come to the mod because both the light and dark sides are powered up, and you can have both light and dark powers at the same time. Also, you can use multiple force powers at the same time (like Lightning, Grip, and Drain all at the same time hehe). Dispite the balance, you can be sure that the battles will still be fast and furious :p. Once again, The readme can tell you about the features better than I could from memory, so I quote the list on the readme: [quote]== Features == This expansion pack adds more advantage for player, you can call it cheat but i call it my very own MOD. The main features is that BOTH dark and light force can be used together just like single player game. My Mod support 99 vehicles, also 99 weapons vehicle, support also Undying mode for multiplayer. Warning! bot is now can be set to undying mode (you cannot kill them) if you set their perfectaim value to 1. This is the 2nd update of dark force mod, and now i call it Angered the Balance God because now i giving advantage too for the light side. You must see it wise, dark side is fast and aggresive, but light side is can be more strong if you are not surrounded by worry and fear of the dark side. -------------------------------------------------------- THE FORCE ABILITY : -------------------------------------------------------- 1. Multitasking, Multiple force can be used in once. for example, you shoot lightning with drain. or using force absorb+protect+rage at once is possible like single player game. 2. Fast attack, no limitation time/delay when using the force. 3. Dark Force and Light Force is now available at once! What is that means? It means, when you spawning into the game, you will get all force ability both dark and light side. Scroll your force power to see the truth. 4. Player now get rank 4 and 5 for saber attack! What is that rank 4 and 5? Rank 4 is Desann saber style, and rank 5 is Tavion saber style. Check Your saber attack cycle if you don\'t believe me : you will now get 5 style queue from : fast->medium->strong->desann->tavion. 5. Widely radius! Drain, lightning and grip have range of 4096 (in map units) it\'s about 15 times more longer than original. 6. Fly away like fairy is possible (force jump) compare this height of jump : float forceJumpHeight[NUM_FORCE_POWER_LEVELS] = { 50,//normal jump 100,//LEVEL 1 200,//LEVEL 2 10000//LEVEL 3 (see it? 10000 feet away from ground!) }; 7. Saber throw is easy as single player. When your saber touch wall, it will not auto return except you release ALT button, thus makes you have more time to guide your saber throw to nearby enemy. (Saberthrow range is now 4096 in map units) 8. More duration for holding button force powers, like absorb, protect, rage, speed and see. 9. Special for whoever have drain force at rank 3 will get 200 force power. I have my own reason to do that. note : I have fix the force drain animation just like single player game. -------------------------------------------------------- COMPARE THE FORCE DAMAGE -------------------------------------------------------- 1. FP_LIGHTNING if (self->client->ps.fd.forcePowerLevel[FP_LIGHTNING] == FORCE_LEVEL_1) {dmg = 1; //because it\'s one-shot} else if (self->client->ps.fd.forcePowerLevel[FP_LIGHTNING] == FORCE_LEVEL_2) {dmg = 2;} else if (self->client->ps.fd.forcePowerLevel[FP_LIGHTNING] == FORCE_LEVEL_3) {dmg = 5;} Lightning attack can destroy sentry gun, trip mine and detpack! 2. FP_DRAIN : drain is not just drain the force but will also drain health. Same as lightning, BUT armor cannot protect from drain damage (DAMAGE_NO_ARMOR) 3. FP_GRIP level 1 : doing 10 damage if you lift enemy more than 5 second level 2 : doing 20 damage if you lift enemy more than 1 second level 3 : doing 3 damage per second. Not including the choke damage. 4. FP_RAGE level 1 : health minus 2 when using level 2 : health minus 1 when using level 3 : health plus 1 when using (hehehe... it\'s reverse:-) 5. FP_HEAL level 1 : add 8 point health level 2 : add 16 point health level 1 : add 40 point health (wow...!but it seems fair:-) 6. FP_PUSH/FP_PULL Do you ever doing the yoyo attack? We just got an idea! First go to high ground from your enemy, then PULL your enemy and than FAST PUSH your enemy body to the ground! Your enemy will deadly smashed the ground to their death. Why we can do that? Well because force push/pull power is having more power in my mod. You can even PUSH/PULL rancor, atst or vehicle. And for person, using force push fast will throw your enemy to their doom! It\'s about 20 times more powerfull than the original push/pull power. You can now able to throw enemy\'s trip mine, detpack or sentry gun away with push/pull like every jedi npc does. 7. FP_ABSORB if (attacker->flags & FL_UNDYING) //if you are in undying mode... { //looks like attacker is cannot be absorbed return -1; //you win... } -------------------------------------------------------- THE PLAYER (especially host player) -------------------------------------------------------- I makes more advantage for host player ( that is player with client index of 0, i mean for you only ) Whenever player spawn (host/you only) you get flagged as UNDYING MODE. (can take damage to 1 but never dies) You get extra weapon : THE BRYAR_OLD WEAPON (bryar pistol), this weapon have primary shot of strong laser, and secondary shot of rocket torpedo (just as the first version of my mod but with more reliability this one) You get extra inventory : E-Web machine gun, cloak device, and binoculars Eweb has extra damage and splash damage, binoculars...hmmm just normal ones. The cloak device is act like dark force booster (just as the first mod) damage of force grip, drain, and lightning will be multiply by 100. Oh well i used this just for the action : Angered god. Damage from this cloaking attack cannot be stop by GOD MODE, this damage is flagged as DAMAGE_NO_PROTECTION. Only undying mode can stop this damage. -------------------------------------------------------- THE WORLD (the ground you touch, the wall you smack) -------------------------------------------------------- In the first mod, there is no falling to death, but that was annoying! I like to kill my enemy by force him to the chasm, Now falling to death will be made available again, BUT not for any player that flagged as GOD MODE or UNDYING MODE. As i said before, host player(you only) is already spawn with UNDYING MODE, no need to set it again. But you can set to GOD MODE (type \"god\" at the console) to stop your player from saying : Auch...Argh...It\'s hurt!!!! -------------------------------------------------------- ALL PLAYER -------------------------------------------------------- Everyone including you get two additional weapon : stun baton and melee (kungfu attack) Stun baton is comes from Jedi outcast, still work as ussualy. Melee Weapon is kungfu attack style of Kyle Boss. You can use it now. ATTACK BUTTON : punch, ALT BUTTON : kick, KATA ATTACK(attack+alt button) : grab and punch Armor is counting up to maximum whenever take damage. -------------------------------------------------------- THE VEHICLES -------------------------------------------------------- My Mod support 99 vehicles! Not just that, the shield of fighter(ships) vehicle can generate more rapidly. -------------------------------------------------------- THE BOT -------------------------------------------------------- If you make a bot, set their personality of key of \"perfectaim\" to 1 will makes your bot flagged to undying mode! So becarefull! Still i like this kind of bot :-). Acctually i set all of my leia organa bot to undying mode. This kind of bot can be dangerous, they automatically have bryar pistol that shot laser+bomb and if they are in the dark side force, their lightning, grip, and drain is very deadly and have long range. -------------------------------------------------------- NEW COMMAND (type from the cheat console) -------------------------------------------------------- Now all cheat command is unprotected. No need type devmap. Start with slash \"\\\" \"\\give force\" = maximize force power. \"\\give god\" = flag to god mode. \"\\give undying\" = flag to undying mode. (host player already flagged as this when spawn) I\'m sorry, some notification like error or warning message are in Indonesian language now! (for me easy debugging) SHARING COMMAND (for debugging pretty much) Start with slash \"\\\" \"\\giveother \" use command \"\\status\" first to see all of client index number example usage : \"\\giveother 0 item_jetpack\" -------------------------------------------------------- SOUND (from NPC Jedi AI) -------------------------------------------------------- Player always say this whenever: FP_LIGHTNING : gloat1.mp3, gloat2.mp3, gloat3.mp3 FP_DRAIN : combat1.mp3, combat2.mp3, combat3.mp3 FP_LEVITATION : jump1.mp3 FP_PULL :victory1.mp3, victory2.mp3, victory3.mp3 FP_PUSH : taunt1.mp3, taunt2.mp3, taunt3.mp3 FP_GRIP : anger1.mp3, anger2.mp3, anger3.mp3 FP_TELEPATHY : confuse1.mp3, confuse2.mp3, confuse.mp3 Enemy failed to push/pull you : pushfail.mp3 -------------------------------------------------------- TIPS -------------------------------------------------------- You must set dismemberment to full probability to get more realism! Type this : \"\\cg_dismember 100\" and \"\\g_dismember 100\" You can cut head, arms, waist or legs of your enemy and knockback it away. If you making ships vehicles, i suggest set the mass value to 1. This will prevent your ships exploding too fast. and also armor must above 3000, maximum is 9999. The mouseYaw and mousePitch should be at least 0.01 for easy turning. OTHER DOWNLOAD (optional) USING THIS (DARK FORCE) MOD release I made it separately to prevent conflict, maybe i will post here or email me : -i have super sith sword with new effect, and slam attack. (this saber is attacking like tavion scepter)[/quote] [u]Bottom Line[/u] Liked the last version? You will love this :p. ~ Innocent Hawk




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




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

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




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




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




Lightsaber \"skin\" for JK3 | 164.52 KB

crossing JK1 .MAT files and JK3 graphics. It appears that the core is thinner, and there\'s much, much less glow. I like this look. But the changes are so subtle, that I doubt this is a mod I\'ll be using. tenebrae Raven mentions that he\'s created other mods, mostly skins, in his readme - so why not send those in? :) ~AmosMagee




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-




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-




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:

I Was A Teenage Jedi | 18.56 MB

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




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




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




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

[quote]This is a mod that will make the Yellow saber blade into a multicolor blade without saber trail.[/quote] It\'s a silly mod, really, but hey, it\'s meant to be! :p Honestly, not badly executed at all. It works like a charm & it feels like you\'re disembowelling your opponents with a candy saber. If you ever wanted a multicolour lightsaber to overwrite your yellow lightsaber, here you go. -Caelum




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~




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: 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~




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




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~




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~




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




Star Wars Stances Animated For JA+ | 8.46 MB

Fernandez Garcia has brought to us today, his Star Wars Stance pack. The first stance change you will notice is simply the standing position, you 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.[/quote] Most of the bugs seem like they've been fixed, although I will name two things that I found. When I used melee mode in JA+, after punching when returning to a ready position, your torso spins around. Also, the new roll seems to move a little bit too fast. Maybe adjust that for a future release if you plan on one. Although I do admit, I loved the increased distance. Very amusing to roll down steps now. Want something new in your game? Here's a way to get it! ~Dretzel

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

SystemA | 3.83 KB

of the camera *cough*reviewers*cough* this may come in very handy as it does not require cheats to be activated and it does not require knowledge of any console commands. It's just a variety of sliders that are clearly labeled. The menu is basically the pause screen, and as a result you can see the changes as you make them. Very handy for its purpose, to be certain, and much simpler than doing it the conventional way. ~Inyri

server providers and mp game solo players who dont know how to scale models themseles. this file includes all yoda and vandar models i am aware of, younglings, SBDs, new nihilus skin and more as well as all old skins.

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




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




Dark Side mod | 17.92 KB

is Tavion, Kyle is Alora, Rosh and Jedi Knights are cultists, and you are a reborn. Not the most creative mod around, I am sure I have seen almost the exact same thing elsewhere, but if you like the sound of it, give it a download. Note to author: Next time, if you want your screenies included, please submit them in the proper format (jpg) and they will be added as well.




Medieval Times: Melee Redux | 26.35 MB

Claymore, Shortsword, Aribeth\'s Longsword, Aribeth\'s Shortsword, Achilles\' Sword, Falchion, Aldred\'s Blade, Halberd, Spear, Quarterstaff, Dwarven War Axe, and Morningstar; 11 shields: Round Shield (Slat Shield), Buckler, Greek Buckler, Kite Shield, Barbarossa Shield, Elven Shield, French Kite Shield, Tower Shield, Dented Tower Shield, Roman Shield, and French Shield; and 4 player skins: Crusader, Moor, Viking, and Hoplite; you can be sure you will have some excellent Medieval fun :). The models in this pack are incredible. They are well detailed and have some very stylish shaders on them :p. If the models don\'t strike you as impressive, then the player skins sure will. They are extremely high quality (If I didn\'t know any better I\'d say the Hoplite skin was a model lol), and are pretty historically accurate. Inyri had a little help making this mod possible, like the blood effects were taken from the Slice, Dice & Mince - Melee Mod, and some of the shield skins and even one of the swords were donated by various members of the JA community (including me ;)). All the authors of those things were fully credited in the readme. The only downside to this mod IMO is that there are so many swords, but a only a very small amount of axe and club type weapons. I\'d like to see more in a v2 if there is one. Also, I\'d like to see some type of reformed engine to help with the damages, and make the shields actually act like shields ;). Bottom Line: If thou hath been waiting for a mod such as this, then thee must download thy file immediately. All thy player skins have Bot an NPC support. None of thy player skins have Team Colors. Glorious new sounds hath been taken from NeverWinter Nights. ~ Innocent Hawk




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.




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 >_




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




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




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




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




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

it\'d say \"POW!\" next to it. We\'ve got bang, boom, and I was waiting for that thwack, but maybe next time. Some of them, however, only work in single-player, so make sure to read the read-me before you use it. ~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




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




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




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




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

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

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

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




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




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




Tournament of Ieyasu | 6.15 MB

you just want to play through one or two levels of some single player action, but you crave a new story and some new action. While the Tournament of Ieyasu doesn\'t really have a story, and it really just plays as a ladder, it\'s still nice to have something, y\'know? The lighting was a bit too dark, I thought. Your opponents aren\'t all that difficult, but they should keep you busy for a while. It\'s supposed to be a tournament with no force, but like, the NPC\'s sooooo cheat and use force on you. Anyway, it\'s a fun little SP campaign that should satisfy you until another one comes out. :) ~AmosMagee




JK2 Lightning | 27.85 KB

tea I would download it, but personally I think the JA Lightning effects are better. - Chrono




Ninja Mod | 3.91 MB

is an incredibly bloody mod. So if that\'s not your cup of tea, steer clear of this. Otherwise, download it and play it a bit - even with just a few bots. It\'s a great mod. Usually when I test something, I just play for a few minutes, but I spent a good half hour testing each weapon and I had a lot of fun playing it. Quite a few things have changed. You have no force. But trust me, you won\'t miss it. The game focuses on melee and weapon combat. There are some great new special moves for melee and for some of the weapons. There\'s this one move with one of the star thingies, that is just a lovely spin move. You have to see it. Not sure there\'s a screenshot down there of it - but a screenie wouldn\'t do it justice anyway. The HUD has completely changed - for the better. There are no pickups, so there\'s no point in running from your enemy. You can throw your weapon, so if you\'re a good aim, you could probably chop someone\'s head off in one toss of a blade. This is a great mod that revives JA somewhat for me. If you\'ve grown weary of the same old sabering, give this mod a shot. It might breathe new life into an old game for you. :) ~AmosMagee




A.K.O.B. (v2) | 2.74 MB

Which is very cool. Each color comes in a seperate pk3, so you can easily switch between red, yellow, blue, orange, purple, green and then some custom colors like Kooky, Crazy and Wacky. I didn\'t get screenshots of all of the colors, but the one you see (with me in it - the last one) is of the \"Kooky\" color. Just looks purple to me. *shrug* Maybe I\'m overlooking some finer points to the gore, I dunno. This is really bloody, but it doesn\'t really get an \"ew\" from me when the colors are so unrealistic. I know a lot of you have issues with blood mods and sabers because the saber would cauterize, etc. I still stand firmly behind my claim that in that one scene where Ben chopped off that guy\'s arm (or hand?) there was blood. Soooo ... back to the review of the mod. I like it. It\'s fun and gory - not something I\'d use every time I play, but it makes for a nice change of pace. [/quote] Well, not much has changed about this mod, except that the author added black blood. Except, well, that doesn\'t quite work either. I threw just the pk3 for black blood into my base folder and the screenshot you see below is what I got. Looks red to me. *shrug* The author claims that he\'ll be updating this mod again soon to add more effects and gore (yay?) to version 3. Is this worth downloading as a second version? No. Don\'t waste your time. ~AmosMagee




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:




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




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




Trillogy Sabers Episode 2 | 2.34 MB

sounds. To me, I don\'t play with sounds effects on so this mod doesn\'t really mean anything to me. I\'m sure that there are people who care what their saber sounds like though. So if you\'re looking for some cool saber sounds from episode two, here you go! There\'s one thing the author mentions in the readme in regards to some sound. [quote]Though I have one comment that I think you should know about. When waving your lightsaber, you may hear something like a chicken clucking. Go to John Williams, it\'s his music, his fault![/quote] I\'m not sure what else to comment on, they sound like sabers to! SanosuKe




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-




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~




Burning Hand Technique | 292.15 KB

am particularly fond of it either. This little mod was made to replace your hilt with a burning hand effect. A small ball of colored fire (same color as the sabers) surrounds your hand whether your saber is on or off. The effect is supposed to be fire-like, but it just looks like a swirling orb of light to me. The author created this mod with his previous submission of the Fire Blades in mind. The two are supposed to work together, but I found that they just didn\'t give me the effect I was hoping for. Something about this just, I dunno, doesn\'t work for me. Though it does look very cool when the saber is not activated, this just isn\'t a mod I will be using. ~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. Hopefully with your next update, you\'ll have a more comprehensive readme! :) ~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]

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.

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




Colorful Blaster Bolts | 228.68 KB

rainbows. [quote]Description: This will turn all your blaster bolts (E-11, Bryar, and bowcaster) into a cool rainbow color!!! Note that it is a little hard to see at first.[/quote] No kidding, huh? [b]Rainbow E-11[/b] I'll start off with my sort-of-favorite; the Rainbow E-11 (top right of screenshot #1). For me, this was the only one where I could see any change without having to do mad zooming stuff. I can't say I really went 'wow, what a difference!' though. A slightly more colourful blaster bolt. [b]Pistol & Bowcaster[/b] To this very moment, I cannot see the difference when firing them ingame. While I can see the different charging effect (and it's okay), the actual bolts might as well be the old ones for as far as I'm concerned. Maybe I'm going both blind and insane, but even so. Don't get me wrong - this isn't a bad idea at all. The thing is, it's very hard to see the change ingame, and even so, the change is only minor. What I'd like to see is a far brighter, more rainbow-y version, with far more colours. Something like [file="116585"]this[/file], but as blaster bolts. All in all, in my opinion, a second version would be nice ;) -Caelum




New Purple Lightsaber blade | 584.35 KB

sabers battery is running out, and the blade is getting a little weak, but personally I think this looks like a jet of plasma! Think of one of those plasma globes and you will know what I mean, its even a similar colour too. Now a lightsaber blade isn\'t something that you would want be on the wrong end of, but neither is a jet of super heated plasma! I think you should make an actual plasma blade version, one that has purple and blue in it and has little tendrils of energy coming off it, now that would be very cool! *wink wink nudge nudge* ;) All in all a cool little mod here, give it a download if you like the look of it! ~Nozyspy~




Darker Lightsaber Blades + Core | 1.08 MB

cores to be closer to the blade color than actual white. It achieves this by making the very center of the core (but not the edges) transparent. [b]Review:[/b] When I opened the pk3, I saw what I thought was a bad job of a good idea. But when I tested it in-game, I was surprised to see that, as simple as the image editing was, it got the job done, and you couldn\'t tell the difference. No joke. This could have been (and probably was) done in paint bucket, but you\'d never know. +1 for that. There\'s not much else I can say. It does as advertised, no bugs, just stylized saber cores. Who knows? This could be just the file YOU want. ~Crazy




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~




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




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




Double Helix v2.0 | 994.83 KB

issues and perfected this mod. First off, here is the original review: [quote] Ever wanted one of those staff lightsaber’s that split in the middle of the hilt, giving you a single saber in each hand, and then can re-connect back into a staff saber (kinda like the one Asajj Ventress has)? Well thanks to some scripting wizardry, now you can! The actual hilt is based off the ‘Double Helix’ saber prop by and is a good representation, with both a staff and single version of the hilt available. The model looks cool and is well made and would make a good mod just on its own. The ‘saber splitting’ function however, is only available in single player. I presume this mod works in a similar way to the command you can use in MP to quickly switch between single, dual and staff sabers without having to go to the saber selection menu… and then die. So I imagine it should also be possible in multiplayer, but I could be wrong, this type of modding is not something I am that familiar with. Anyway, to use this in singleplayer you need to start a new game, and then when it comes to selecting the saber you start with, you need to select the staff version of the Helix hilt. [b]Don’t forget to put the included autoexec.cfg in your base folder for this to work in singleplayer though![/b] Then, once you have started a new game, all you need to do is press the z key to switch to the dual sabers, and then the x key to re-connect the two sabers back into the saber staff! :D As I said above, this mod doesn’t allow this function to be used in multiplayer, but both the staff and single hilts are available to use in MP. There is a bug here however. The staff version of the hilt does not appear to work properly in multiplayer; one saber blade emits from half way down the hilt, and the other sticks out of the hilt at right angles, which looks rather weird! I’m guessing this should be too difficult to fix though. One other thing is that no name appears in the saber selection menu for these hilts. It is just a blank space. These aren’t mod-breaking problems, but they definitely things that need to be worked on for next time. Overall though, this is a very clever little mod here, one which I have not seen the likes of before. So, if you guys fancy trying out an innovative new mod with some cool new saber hilts to boot, be sure to give this a download! ~Nozyspy~[/quote] So, let’s round up the issues that have been fixed in this new version; [*]Second blade no longer starts half way up the hilt on the staff saber version. [*]Issue fixed which caused one of the blades to appear out of the players crotch. [*]This mod now has multiplayer support, thanks to some clever scripting. You will need to be using the JA+ mod to be able to use the splittable saber script in multiplayer however. I think the changes that have been made have polished this mod up really well, and personally I couldn’t find any more bugs with this. So if you were a fan of the original, be sure to download this new bug free version! :) ~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~




Spider Web v2 | 53.05 KB

replaces force lightning) looks more like strands of spiders silk, rather than a web like texture being shot out, which is more what it looked like in v1. Personally I think this is an improvement over the previous version although I would agree with that Dretzel said in his previous review that this mod really needs a new EFX file to do the ‘spider web’ effect justice. Never the less this does look pretty cool, and I think this will work well with any Spiderman skins you guys may have! Give this a download if you like the look of it! :) ~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




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




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~




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




New knockdown animations | 11.61 KB

animations, and I honestly can\'t decide whether I like it or whether I think it looks silly. I\'ll have to try it out some more and see! Until then, though, decide for yourself. The author recommends Force pulling/pushing some NPCs to see how it looks. Enjoy! ~Inyri




Zero\'s Saber Mod | 1.41 MB

changed to look like a flame with two oriental symbols in it. A small change, but it does add a little bit more interest to the game, so be sure to grab it if you like the look of it. ~Inyri




Luke NPC & Sabers | 41.37 KB

Luke, maybe you want to get this to make it more challenging. The second PK3 makes four hilts accessible that weren't usable in MP in baseJKA: the reborn's, Kyle's, Luke's, and Desann's. Fairly straightforward, and the two bits are split apart so if you only want the hilts or only want the NPC you won't be stuck with the other half. ~Inyri




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-




Halo 3 Startup Screen | 2.22 MB

a black background, with, as I stated before, a Halo 3 logo on it, though it looks pixelated. The buttons are easier to read than the ones on the SG startup screen were, but some areas still sorta blend in. It comes with new sounds, but they are so quiet for me that I hardly even noticed they were there at all. Anyway, it\'s a simple screen, which I guess achieves it\'s purpose of bringing \'a little touch Halo to JKA\', if by that you mean throwing the logo on the startup screen. Give it a download if you want...




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




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




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




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




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

Presenting, Clan Mod! The new, and improved Jedi Academy administration mod. For Clan Mod, the goal is security, and as such, it differs from those other mods slightly. I will first point out the things that this has fixed that JA+ doesn't have. First off, it has flood protection on by default! Mind you, this is not the regular This means that nobody can make you crash by spamming you with messages. But, you can crash yourself. So have fun with that. There is also improved chat protection! This was actually one of the first things that I tested. While in JA+ you can kill someone who is in chat and has absorb, or another light side power, you cannot do that in this mod. Chat protection is much better in this mod. It even applies in duels! So no more chatkilling! Then, there's the reworked grapple. Sure, it doesn't have it's own custom model, but it's much better. First off, there is actually an animation that is played when you throw the grapple ''hook''. And secondly, there's actually a rope sound that plays when you're throwing it! And, also, you would think that when you grapple onto someone that you would follow them, correct? In JA+, it doesn't do that. In Clan Mod, it does! Sure, there is no swinging like you're able to do in JA+, but that might come in a later release. Moving onto the next thing, Admin! now, brace yourselves, there are five levels of admin. That's right, FIVE! And they're all customisable with a nifty bitvalue generator that is included with the mod. So yay, five levels of admin to use! I know that gives clans a little more freedom with admin, so you might like that facet of this mod. Now, there aren't as many admin commands as in JA+, but I can say that they are just a potent! First off is freeze, which literally freezes your character in mid-air! There are a few commands, such as scale, which let you change the size of your model! Hm, let me think...There is also splat, which in essence slaps you into the air and then you fall and die. There's a rather funny thing that goes along with this. If you put chat up, you bounce! But you can't do anything but bounce. Another commands is /lockname, which keeps a player from changing their name. There's silence, as well as /insultsilence, where if a player tries to speak, a random, pre-set, customizable message pops up instead. Quite funny, actually. There is a command to grant admin, as well. But as far as I could tell you're only able to grant the lowest level of admin. There are emotes, but there aren't as many as in JA+, thankfully. The few that there are just taken from regualr Jedi Academy. Oh! One of the things that a lot of you people will LOVE is the auto chat color option. What does this mean, you ask? You set a color, and all your chat comes out in that color! And among other things in this mod, you have a black saber, which isn't really black, it has a white core and a black edge. I think it looks cool. There is also the pimp saber from the OJP project, which goes through all of the saber colors, which is cool. There is also RGB saber and character support! Okay, now onto the actual clan part of the clan mod. So know how people always have their clan information in the message of the day? Well, this mod gives another outlet for that. There's a clan section for the mod, that takes up a spot on the menu bar. It contains the clans name, initials, recruiting status, whether they lame or not, as well as other information, so you can start putting different stuff in the message of the day! Also, now you don't have to wear those cumbersome clan tags! Clan mod has a slot just for your clan! So your name can go without the clan tags now! There's also a clan member login! However, there currently isn't clan tag protection, but we can look forward to it in the next version! Am I done? No. There are now four, count them, FOUR, duel types. There is melee dueling, full force dueling, training duels, and regular duels. Melee duels are just what you think, melee duels, you get 200 health and your fists. Can anyone say: ''Boxing match?''. I'm sure you all know what a full force duel is. So I won't explain what that is. The next one is the training duel. You take no damage in this duel type. None. It's meant for training. But, you can end it whenever you want. And now for the best part, this mod is server side! You don't need it to play on a server that has it! However, most of the things, such as the clan menu, you can't see without the add-on. And fortunately, It's included in the download! Both server and client versions for this mod are included in the download! And wait, that's not all! The Linux version is also included! I hope that this mod comes to replace JA+, or at least be put up onto many servers. I have had a couple of people come onto a server that I hosted, and they all liked the mod! I would just like to say that this is an excellent mod. ~Zach[/quote]




Clone Wars Startup Pack | 2.33 MB

title, centered around ideas and images from the clone wars cartoon series, and as such, whilst this may not entirely correspond to JKA's intended graphical style, it is still a welcome change. Be careful about clashes with other similar pk3 files however - as these replacements will not work with other similar mods. My favorite addition here was the new splash screen, which is set at dusk near a small temple with two lightsaber wielders facing each other. The star wars logo is emblazed with perspective onto a nearby rock wall and looks very sharp. I also quite liked the new startup screen, as the buttons are clear and the artwork fits. I would have preferred the removal of the author's name from the bottom-left hand corner however. It also includes a new sound set, which is a mixed bag. It's really only the vocal samples which don't work, the others sound fine. :) I wasn't so keen on the loading screen or loading bar - there's too much white space here which makes them look a little plain, and the loading bar doesn't look good in red, at least, not for me ;) The little text logs on these does look nifty though, even if it isn't always entirely relevant to the map you are loading. I quite think you guys should take a look at the screenshots and see what you think, as I'm sure it will appeal to some of you. ~Szico VII~




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




Main Menu Title Videa (Aayla Secura) | 10.45 MB

her by, every time I load Jedi Academy! So, for those of you who like Aayla Secura and are bored with your main menu video, this is for you! The author has also included a tip in the readme. Here it is. [quote] TIP!: This RoQ is with sound! (music). Do as follows: change your game resolution to the 640x480 and switch full screen to off (so that your comp won\'t lock up). Now, type in the console: /cinematic ja01 ... and enjoy Aayla\'s new fate! :P ROTFL LMAO :D[/quote] Upon doing this I was amused to be hearing the Numa Numa song, which automatically gave the movie a funny air, which I didn\'t like. It should have been slow, sad music to commemorate Aayla\'s death. But that\'s just me. ~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

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




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~




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




Main Menu Title Video (Darth Maul) | 30.27 MB

Qui-gon is stabbed, then he\'s suddenly dueling Maul on Tatooine). Also, which I find to be the biggest downfall, is that the video is horrendously stretched. There was no attempt made the have the video fit the menu with a proper proportional scale, so the video was just squished to fit in. Personally I think that makes it look incredibly silly, and there\'s also just something about watching a lightsaber duel with no sound that gets me every time. Anyway, if you\'re a Maul or Episode I fan, give it a try. It could have been done better, however. ~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




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




Realistic Luke NPC | 1.55 KB

when I pitted him against Desann [i]and[/i] Tavion, just out of curiosity. 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. Overall I don't know how useful this mod would be, unless you like to watch 15 minute long NPC duels. However if you [i]do[/i], or have some other use for a beefed up Luke NPC, give it a try. ~Inyri




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




NPC Samurai Katana | 8.66 MB

DOA Mod | 6.48 MB

readme explains what each gun does and how it works etc. Quite alot of changes of how the guns work from basejka. They use no ammo, force powers do not really affect gun power now and you can roll with guns too. I love these changes and there\'s a load more. The guns themselves are awesome, I love the Jukebox of doom, it is the wookiee bowcaster but 10 times uberly better, when it charges if plays music (If you\'ve ever played the map ‘the academy’, it\'s the music from the cantina) Some guns pack more of a punch than others and the saber is basically crap now. Another thing that makes this mod unique is the death and entrance lines. For example when someone kills me with a saber it\'d say \'Rink was noobed\' some of them are just hilarious. I found no bugs, that’s great too. To get the most out of this mod you have to play it with some people, I guarantee you will have a great time if you like a decent shoot out with players, I even had a good time playing with my Bot buddies lol. Download this and try it out! -Rink //I am so sorry barada for the extremely slow upload time, there was alot of confusion going on in the inbox and there\'s about 3 versions of this gettings reviewed in the processing folder, so I\'ve quickly reviewed this and posted it before more delay//




RealJedi Mod v1.0 PR | 1.15 MB

gil - er, wrong game - credits on all kinds of stuff. (See screenshots.) Now, keep in mind, this is the first release of this mod. The author has a lot of ideas and a lot planned for the mod, but needs this to be tested and needs feedback. So have fun, report bugs to him, offer your suggestions. I can't wait to see more! :D ~AmosMagee

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. :)




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




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~




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~




[DF]Dual Staff Mod | 500.61 KB

saber staff mod. It combines the dual sabers with the saber staff. It also has longer sabers and everything has been modified. There's nothing else interesting about it. Damage is increased and defense is probably stronger. ~AmosMagee




Jedi Knight 1 Sound Mod | 814.97 KB

never played the first Jedi Knight game, and wow, those sounds ... they sound old. Anyway, if you\'ve been missing those old sounds from your JK1 days, just download this little mod and you can play JA and maybe experience a little nostalgia from the JK1 sounds. ~AmosMagee




Dark Lightning v2.0 | 324.49 KB

on how long you hold it. therefor you can\'t really aim at someone. so For those people who use lightning with fighting. This won\'t be very usefull for you. even so the lightning itself still looks really cool. and the sound of thunder. gives it an extra touch. -Buffy- New Sounds: Yes




Cinematic Sabers | 668.83 KB

There are some new sounds, but really, I don\'t see why you\'d want to keep this mod in your base folder. I do suggest you download it though and decide for yourself. ~AmosMagee




X-Men Duel Music | 914.63 KB

Being old myself, I remember loving those and wishing I had Wolverine\'s claws and feral abilities combined with Nightcrawler\'s teleporting (and some of Spidey\'s good ole\' webslinging and wise-cracking talents). Now that I am a superhero mutant, it\'s nice to be taken back to the old days. :D IMO: This is an excellent mod, for the simple fact that it\'s a very good choice for dueling music. It works like it\'s supposed to and it\'s a small download, even for those of you still \"surfing\" on the 56k pipeline. As the author acknowledges, it won\'t work on a pure server, so grab it and join a \"dirty\" server. ;) Technical Data: Pros: 1. Fast paced music 2. Small download size Cons: 1. Incomplete song. Nooooooooooo!!! Rating: 8/10 JEDIofONE :mepimp:




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




True Rodian Voice | 1.2 KB

from the rodian skin, and puts them onto the kedi rodian to make him sound like a rodian. This mod is nothing special, but there are some who may find it useful :) Personally i prefer the change, but it's not like it has bothered me that much. ~Szico VII~




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




Dragonball Z Mod JA | 1.98 MB

tell you about what\'s changed and not refer to Dragonball Z at all. Most of what has been altered here are the weapon effects. Unfortunately, none of the weapons themselves or the names of the weapons have changed. Which I think would be something that should be considered for a second version. The effects look great, but I\'ve heard that some of the effects can drain FPS. I didn\'t notice any difference (yay for my upgrade!), but you might. Also, there\'s melee included ... but it kinda sucks. It\'s pretty much the stance of whatever saber you\'re using, without the saber. :/ The author included a melee bot for you to play with. Meh. Oh, and if you turn on cheats, you can fly! Yup. There\'s a pic of it down there so, yeah. I kind of expected more from this mod, to be honest. I was hoping to see different models as weapons and some skins and stuff. Pretty much, it\'s just weapon effects. Hopefully there will be an update to this mod. How accurate the mod is to Dragonball Z, I don\'t know. You guys tell me. :) ~AmosMagee




Classic NPCs | 11.98 MB

mapname (to get cheats enabled) then type "helpusobi1" or "devmapall" and then do /npc spawn "npc name here". So it's not hard to use. The NPCs that you can use are: -Mark1 -Mark2 -Glider -Minemonster -Galak_mech -Remote -Rebornfencer -Rebornforceuser and finally -Rebornacrobat This mod is worth the download if you like all the cool old NPC's. 10/10!

Double Bladed Saber for SP | 56.91 KB

the beginning. So, you can choose that instead of the single player. That\'s all this mod does. Want to hear a story about a knight, a princess and the slaying of a Rancor? No? Well, I can\'t think of anything else to say here! Um, the mod works. And I found no bugs. And the author created this very helpful screenshot to show us exactly what this mod changes and stuff. Good work with this mod! ~AmosMagee




Electric and Lightning Hands | 220.27 KB

hands that you can have one is Electric hands and the other is Lightning Hands. They look really cool espescially the Lightning one it is really smooth while the bolts go around. There were no differences in the power of the sabers so that was a yay. I really like the idea of just changing the looks of the hands so it gives it a much more interesting look. I am sorry if you guys cannot understand what I am saying, but to say things very simply the lightning hands look awesome. I also like the Electric hands because of the effects it has and it was just cool! The hands always have the electricity or Lightning on them even if your saber is off so that is cool also. The thing that the lightning reminded me of was one of those orbs that when you put your hand on it a lightning looking thing comes to your finger. Overall this pack is awesome! Just the look is cool and running around with your electric hands just imagine the Additions you can use the hands for ;). I must say an awesome job done once again and I can\'t wait to see even more from you Shovel! Bravo ol\' Chap! -XgamerX New Sounds: Couldn\'t Hear New Textures: Yes




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




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




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!

A mod worthy of recognition in the Jedi Archives: New MP options | 232.06 KB

mod of great and potent convenience, I reckon. Essentially, this is sort of a menu mod of sorts that allows for toggling of certain variables, settings, all that good stuff. The mod only can be activated whilst in-game, but it plays nice with others, so no big deal. What kinda functions does it activate? Eh, nothing MIND-BLOWING. Force Regen, speed, gravity, stuff like that, but it also has the ability to mod weapon damage(?) and enable some other misc. mods, which isn't too bad. So yeah, it's a neat little tool, but keep in mind, some of those commands require cheats to be active to use them, so may not be for everyone. M'kay, victory. - Averus Retruthan




JO Reborn sounds for JA classic Reborns | 532.36 KB

JK2....but there's one problem: SOUNDS. Old JK2 Reborn apparently was handed the new reborn soundset, which, mediocre to fair, and left to die with only a fraction of its options. ....Someone noticed and took action. So yah, If my rant or the title didn't clue you in, you're pretty much busting rocks with your head for a living. The soundset included adjusts the reborns back to a mixture of some of the old JO soundsets. Unfortunately, the approach used is kinda...well, unusual. The ideal situation would have been this: Four pk3s. One including all the soundsets, and three that adjusts the sounds.cfg of the reborn model, depending on which one you'd prefer. Our dear author has chosen to just sorta mix and muddle them all up. Not necessarily a faux-pas, but I don't recall Stormtroopers constantly swapping out voices, though I do recall the Merc Commander in T2_ Rancor that used a stormtrooper's voice....yeah. So, case in point, the intent is pure, but the approach coulda used a bit more thinkin' over. It's a start, though, so definitely keep at it, lad. - Averus Retruthan




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!

modification of the sniper scope: [quote]I tried to create something close to what we saw in the 2 episode of the saga when Zam Wesell shooting at Obi-Wan[/quote] I have to admit, it's been ages since I last saw episode 2 (everyone knows Star Trek is far superior anyway, right? :p), but that scope does vaguely ring a bell. Essentially, as you can see on the screenshots, it has various red markings, surrounded by a black ring of sniper-rifle-ness. A nice addition: one can also vaguely make out areas outside the scope, so your vision's slightly less limited when sniping. Either way, this is one of those things where you'll know by the screenshots if you want it, so without any further ado, verily shalt thee now proceed to get it if thou doth verily want it. Truthfully, it doth do what it doth sayeth on the tin. ...Okay, I'm never saying that again. -Caelum




Ingame Server List | 971.31 KB

entertainment. It\'s a quite real situation, giving the fleeting activity of many a server. Perhaps you just want to wait it out at another server while your favorite one picks upon activity? Another very true instance >_> ...Yeah, so, I think you get the point, this mod will be the answer to all your problems, yah? Basically, does a little fancy UI swap and replaces \"Restart Match.\" As illustrated by the shots below, you just select the \"Join Server\" function and it takes you to the server list. [b]All functions work[/b], though Zkyo has foretold that it won\'t work while you\'re running a solo game. A sad, but understandable problem. So, to reiterate: - You can find servers. - You can search for people ingame - You can add favorites. - You can join another game from it. - Server list can be refreshed, etc. All of it works, and if you can\'t find anything you like, you just hit the close button on the GUI and it returns you to the game. Best of all, it works with JA+ and any mod that doesn\'t horrendously modify the menu bar. Just insert the pk3 into the game folder (japlus for JA+ for example) and you\'re good to go. I foresee this little modification will be quite popular =_= NOW GO AND MAKE MY FORESIGHT TRUE! - Averus Retruthan

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




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~




The Clone Wars Lightsabers Version 2 | 1.38 MB

what? [quote]Version 2: Added Orange and Yellow got rid of the black glow around your hand and added the sounds to the default lightsabers based on their useage in the single player game.[/quote] All is forgiven. However, a new problem presents itself. One that seems like it could have been prevented, no less. I'm still trying to ponder the author's motive for this, but he has included some extra baggage: the SP .sab files. Why? I don't know, but this now screws up your saber list in larger proportions than expected. Might wanna fix that. If you can deal with the saber list issues, then this mod's pretty much complete, and probably up thine alley...not mine. Anyone who comes down my alley comes out the other side a zombie =_> - Averus Retruthan




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

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~




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~

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




The Force Unleashed Lightsaber Blades v2 | 325.64 KB

black blade replaces the orange one and the white glow is a bit more realistic (If lightsabers can be called realistic, heh). There's really nothing else to say about it, so if you used the first version, I suggest you submit some bandwidth to download new one. -Schrödinger




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

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~




Xode's Minimalist RP/The Force Unleashed HUD | 9.56 KB

game modes where your current health and shield levels are not your primary concern. The design was also loosely based off images of the HUD from The Force Unleashed.[/quote] First off I can tell you this is an impressive HUD, even if somewhat small. Its all there, health, shields, force and ammo, although the ammo and shield bars are much smaller, in line with the authors idea of this being mainly for RP gameplay. Nevertheless though, this is still perfectly suitable for any other gametype as it has all the essentials in there, even a saber style indicator, all wrapped up into one small stylish HUD. It’s not intrusive and doesn’t get in your way, which is always an important objective for a new HUD to fulfil. Overall I think this is an excellent quality HUD mod, although like I said, it would be nice if it was a little bigger so that the shield and ammo bars are a little clearer, making it even better for the rest of us players who don’t really do roleplay. All in all good work here! If you guys like the look of this, then be sure to give it a download! :) ~Nozyspy~




TFU Force Push | 489 B

The Force Unleashed HUD | 75.43 KB

of your screen representing your force power and health. It does really need more work though. One of the main things is that it doesn’t have a shield status bar, which makes it impossible to know what your shield status is. Also the increments with which the bar goes up and down are quite large and there are also no numbers, so it isn’t necessarily accurate as regards what your health and force status is either. Fix those problems and make it a little tidier around the edges and I am sure we will have a fine mod here! :) If you like the look of this mod, then don’t forget to give it a download and be sure to give the author some helpful tips in the comments section on where and how he can improve his modding skills, especially if you are a fellow modder! ~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~




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~




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




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




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




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

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




Jaden NPC Pack (v2) | 1.65 KB

lists in the readme, including; toning down the force powers to a more reasonable level, and of course making this an NPC pack, with various different kinds of Jaden to choose from. The commands to spawn them in-game are listed in the readme, but for convenience sake I will paste them below too; [quote] jaden_hm (Jaden as a Human Male) jaden_kdm (Jaden as a Kel Dor Male) jaden_rm (Jaden as a Rodian Male) jaden_hf (Jaden as a Human Female) jaden_tf (Jaden as a Twi'lek Female) jaden_zf (Jaden as a Zabrak Female)[/quote] Note of course that you need to put the line ‘/npc spawn’ before the character (without the quotes), like /NPC spawn jaden_hf and such. Also remember that the cheats need to be enabled before you can use this command. Well, that just about wraps it up, if you guys like the sound of this mod, then give it a download! :) ~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




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~




Grimm Single Player Weapons | 274.76 KB

Disruptor It now functions as a Star Wars equivalent to an M4. Fires much faster, bordering on being an automatic insta-hit assault rifle. Ammo usage is drastically reduced. - Blaster Pistol Changed into the Bryar Pistol. Infinite ammo. Faster firing rate. - E-11 Fires faster, the alternate fire uses half ammo. - Bowcaster Faster alt fire, lower ammo consumption. 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

HS Kenobi Sound Fix | 1.79 MB

one. Apparently a common complaint with HapSlash\'s Obi-Wan was that the sounds failed to function in MP due to being in the wrong format. This file essentially fixes this by overriding the files with mono .wav format sounds. Basically, it are maketh teh broken soundies worketh again. If you use the HS Obi-Wan in multiplayer, you\'ll probably want this. ~ Kouen




Dark Forces II startupscreen (final) | 639.51 KB

me... [quote]Much unlike the previous version, we now get a mockup of the DF2 title screen added over a scenic background of the Valley Of The Jedi. However, that\'s all we get. The title bar has not been changed, nor have the buttons, which makes reading the text difficult. Download if it takes your fancy, but personally, I\'ll stick. ~Kouen[/quote] Now that we\'ve brought ourselves up to speed, I am to tell you what has changed. Well, the effect one sees upon pressing a button has been made more vibrant and the effect one sees upon bringing one of the many menu options under one\'s focused gaze has been altered to... well, some highlights around the corners. The text is still a bit difficult to read, though. And that, lads and lasses, is all. - Jose




Crimson saber | 9.67 KB

tint to it. That\'s it. Honestly, I don\'t see the point, as there is already a red saber in the game. If you really didn\'t like the yellow ones that much, you could have changed it to one of the very many colors not included in the game... Ah well, you guys might like it. Give it a download and see.

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




Modified Saber Lengths | 6.96 KB

mod, has! This mod will change the length off all staff sabers in the default game to 40. Included are mods that do the same thing for sabers found in the JA+ pack and Revan Dark\'s Darth Maul staff. And that is simply that! Give it a download if you want what this mod offers!




JA \'Unlimited\' | 1.09 MB

basically near-destroys all the file limits put in place by Raven\'s coding. You can now see virtually every skin and model without the aid of JA+ or similar mods, can have a boatload of vehicles, sabers, npcs, etc. Basically, packrat haven =_,=. Only thing I would advise when using this mod, as the author also advises: Don\'t abuse it too much if you have a PC that you don\'t think could handle the increased number of resources needed to draw upon the power of unlimitation. Otherwise, this is a rather good utility to have if you just can\'t stand to compromise between your 200+ mods,(I personally have approximately 1050 pk3 files in my base folder alone,) then I would suggest equipping this mod to your base folder, and worry no more =_=. Bandwidth, you gluttons, BANDWIDTH!! - Averus Retruthan




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




Saber Magnify MP and SP V2 | 453.31 KB

affect however the ingame saber. Maybe some of you will appreciate it, I know I do because I can see the detail on the ingame sabers much better. The author also made it easier for us placing different pk3s to work for the different mods out there like Japlus, ojpbasic, base ja and forcemod 3. Ayane Yamazaki[/QUOTE] Now the author has provided ingame magnify so that if you need to look at your saber hilt while ingame you can do so. Kudos for that. And also sorry for taking this long, problems with pc and isp are a real drag. [i]Ayane Yamazaki[/i]




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]




Sith Pack | 2.23 KB

you can see in the screenshots. Overall not much here but if you wanted to have these NPCs, given that you got all the pk3s this draws from, then go ahead and get them. Luckily the author has put into his readme the links to all the skins and models you need to get this working so that\'s a plus. [i]Ayane Yamazaki[/i]




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]




Scepter of Ragnos | 17.75 KB

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




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




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




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




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




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.




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




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.




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




New Sabercolors | 191.09 KB

are the changes? Well it looks to me like the author enlarged the glow of the saber, and a white core has been added, with a bit more contrast on the colors. Simple? Yes. How could it be improved? If the author had troubleshot the reason the orange color changes didn’t work, fixed them, and then had a complete pack. If you like it, then download it. ~Zach




Clonewar stances and effects | 23.2 MB

for once. My initial thoughts were naturally apprehensive, but I stand corrected on that. Behold, the contents of this mod: - New Saber, Force, and Misc. Effects: We\'re granted with a new looks for..well...=_= the above mentioned. The only effect I was entranced by was the lightning. As such =_,= I included a picture of me decimating a fool with my medley of spells. Other than that, I\'m not phased too heavily by the changes. GET IT FOR YOURSELF AND JUDGE =_=. - New Sabers: Yes, masses. You are granted with a large medley of sabers from the entire Star Wars series, so it seems. The second screenshot lists but a few. If you must know, the green midget\'s saber is in there as well =_o along with others. Each is rather sexually appealing. Not only are they included separately, they overwrite the default sabers so thou won\'t be disappointed. - Angry sounds: FORCE, SABER, and...curses that\'s it? I wanted to do an angry finisher...oh well -=THUNDER AND LIGHTNING=- there. Now then, some rather well-composed sounds were implanted for Force Push/Pull, Grip, and Lightning. All except perhaps the Force Push were excellent. Force Push sounded more like one of my artillery cannons, unfortunately. Nothing that would demean the sounds as a whole. The saber sounds were typical movie sounds, so what else is left to say? Well, they were sufficient and not bad to listen to. Not mind-shatteringly impressive, but GOOD NONETHELESS =_=. - Stances: allegedly there were a variety of stances in this pack. Alas, even when booting up a clean base JA game, I found nothing. Perhaps it may be just me, but all I witnessed was some saber igniting chances. Perhaps it\'s simply myself, or perhaps the author is at fault I\'ll let you all figure that out. Apparently my machine is TOO INEPT AND THUS REQUIRES TO BE KILLED. Overall? Decent. It\'s most definitely worth a submission of bandwidth should you be looking for a bit of SPARKLING ANGER WITH YOUR GAME EXPERIENCE...or pretty sounds/effects. Either way, SUBMIT BANDWIDTH HERE! *points to the Filefront Tower* - Averus Retruthan




Old Trilogy Sabers | 183.62 KB

basically most of the saber blurs look the same to me. I know. I generally don’t notice that kind of detail. So you’re the one to judge whether or not it looks good. However, I did notice that the blue_line and purple_line textures in this look the same. While that doesn’t make a very noticeable difference, it does give the purple saber color a nicer look. So, if you like this, then download it. ~Zach




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




Drakseye Saber (Original Concept) | 6.45 MB

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. ~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




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




New Load Bar Colors | 10.99 KB

bars that are very simple, which look to be centered on one color. But, it still looks good, and if you want your load bars changed, then download this. You can only have one of the load bar pk3's in your base folder at one time. ~Zach




More New Load Bar Colors | 12.19 KB

bar. While a cool idea, I like the default loading bar, and if I wanted to see change, I'd like to see change in the actual bar shape. Something like putting a box around it, or something like that. But for all purposes, these do work, and itf you want some change, then download them. Remember, choose one of the pk3's and put it into your base folder. only one can be in your base folder. ~Zach




TLT Startup | 1.09 MB

screen consists of a nice planetary view, with some pretty transparent crimson around the buttons. Since it's a startup screen, and it does what it's meant to, it's not really a case of anything being right or wrong with it, but there are a few things I would have changed if I were doing it. - For the logo, I would have used a font with some kind of blending options on it. - I would have changed the highlighted buttons, too. - The minimize and close buttons do let the thing down a little. I would also have made new buttons for those. On the whole, it's simple, ad it does it's job. If you're one of the people who still uses the startup launcher, then here's another one you can add to your collection. [b]Just be sure to back up your original Install folder before installing this mod![/b] ~ Kouen




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




Graphical Chat Icons | 62.75 KB

However, in my experience, a lot of chat killing happens when someone is in the process of attacking you and then you just put your chat up, and then dying. That, or someone wants to kill you when you're in chat. There are three different icons to choose from. one with the Jedi Knight logo on it, which says "setting", one with Vader holding out his hand saying "Wait", and one with crossed sabers saying "No". The most that I would debate with this would be that you're not always working with your settings (in reference to the first one). My main suggestion would be to make more of these, and not limit them to just star wars topics. But once again, this is a nice mod, because it gives people a template to work off of, should they want to change their chat icons. Download this if you want a change of chat icons. ~Zach




RTCW Menu | 3.48 MB

that I didn\'t like was the secondary menu strip that activates when you click on, say, Profile. A strip above the skin selection is the same as original. I think it would\'ve been alot better with some metal bars or something. Make it look more WWII-ish. However, I liked the \"Ja\" and \"Nein\" bit on the Quite Game screen. A nice touch.

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

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

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




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

Good effort, just try to do more next time. -Red




Mortal Kombat Deception Music Mod

a_mortal_kombat_deception_music_pack.pk3 | 11.26 MB

a young age. I didn\'t remember the music, so before writing this review I played the three Super Nintendo Mortal Kombat games emulated on my computer, as a reminder. It was rather dull and metallic -- typical of a fighting game, or any Super Nintendo game. I didn\'t last very long; I usually resort to repeated kicking or punching very quickly, often too far away to actually reach the opponent. Yami_Ryou\'s \"Mortal Kombat Deception Duel Music Mod\" puts music into your Jedi Academy game from what is probably a much newer Mortal Kombat game, which is entitled \"Mortal Kombat: Deception.\" The makers have greatly improved the quality of the music. It is now harsher and even more metallic, which perfectly suits a bloody fighting game. It\'s slightly more exciting; it now has phrasing and direction. That, however, is only in contrast to the original Mortal Kombat music. As is with just about any other soundtrack from a video game, what you hear is not great music. Why hasn\'t anyone submitted any music mods that play Bach or Beethoven? The music in this mod, despite its harsh metallicism, just somehow comes out dull, cruel, and lifeless -- like some sort of ghastly garbage can ensemble. But the sound quality is good, as the readme notes, and if you\'re into this stuff, fine. It\'s also, I noted, too fast-paced for Jedi Academy. I don\'t think anyone duels this quickly. The music was written for two fighters rapidly exchanging fists, or, as was the case when I played the SNES version, shooting rockets out of robotic chests. It was not for an elegant swordfight. --Ra-Kom




Episode 3 Stances | 8.24 MB

like they emulate stances others chose not to. Blue is supposed to be an Obi-wan stance, yellow is quite obviously the Dooku/Anakin duel stance from Episode 2 (do they use it in Episode 3, too? I can't remember...), and red is supposed to be Senator Palpatine's stance. The dual and staff stances seem unrelated to the prequels, and while they both seem rather... ineffective, they both look pretty cool. The whole saber system in this game is relatively ineffective, though, so whining about an ineffective stance is pointless ;) Overall a good set of stances, with some new material I haven't seen before. Worth a look if you're a stance guru. ~Inyri




EPII,III,IV-VI Clones->Stormtrooper NPCS | 10.29 KB

you'll have to download them yourself. This includes NPCs for Mars Marshall's Clones Ultima pack, and several of HapSlash's "improved" models. The NPC files themselves are quite bare minimum, and if you already have a lot of NPC files this could cause some extension overload problems for you. This will really only be useful if you like to play single-player, or do a lot of video filming in single-player. Most of the mods you need for this to function can be found right here on JK3Files: [file="24384"]HapSlash's Sandtrooper[/file] [file="24382"]HapSlash's Improved Stormtrooper[/file] [file="53471"]Mars Marshall's Clones Ultima[/file] Make sure to check the NPC list in the ZIP for links to the other files you will need. ~Inyri




Anakin_Obi Startup Screen | 648.98 KB

Obi-wan and Anakin seem to be standing side-by-side looking out at you, with a very angry-looking Anakin head in the middle. I find it a little odd that Anakin\'s face is on all the buttons, but they do look pretty neat. I like the fact that the launcher has a nice thick black border around the edge, which gives it a very clean-cut look. Definitely give it some new sounds next time, though. Episode III has a good potential for sounds, and you can always find new beeps and boops around the net somewhere, so give it that extra little something next time around. ~Inyri




Super Perfect EpIII Blue Lightsaber | 11.09 KB

people, myself included, thought his blue saber not to be the right shade compared to the sabers seen in Episode III. This mod attempts to rectify that shade error. I compared it next to an image of Obi-wan\'s blue lightsaber, and it indeed seems much closer... though not perfect. But indeed it\'s a great improvement over the very dark purply-blue default blue saber blade, so definitely check it out if you already have the blade pack, or just want a more accurate blue lightsaber. ~Inyri




Bryar Replacement Mod | 351.38 KB

yellow. I\'m not a JK and JO fanatic, so I actually prefer the red version over the yellow one. However you might want to try both to see which fits you best. Download this if you want a change, have a poster of Kyle Katarn above your bed or if you just plain like the gun. It does what it\'s supposed to do, so it\'s only the matter of personal preference now. Arthenik




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~




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




EP3 Duel Startup Screen | 463.61 KB

background, you can see the photoshop effect used actually looks really wierd, but it's kinda like one of those big pictures made up from loads of little ones - when you look at it as a whole, it looks great. My only real criticism is that the Jedi Academy logo is slightly hard to see over the background, but aside from that, it's an awesome shot. I especially like the blue tint around the face which brings out the expressions - very nice. No new sounds however - possibly a downside, depending whether you like JA's custom sounds or not. Personally, I always like to hear new sounds even if they aren't too good, but I guess you can't always have everything. Anyway.. yeah, download it and have a look - it's certainyl an improvement to the default menu graphics! :) ~Szico VII~




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




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

Although this may have been technically simple to make, I have to say nice work for it was done well. ~LK~




JA Default Model Tauntpak | 5 MB

are quite a few sounds here, so I'll try to be brief but complete at the same time. The author aimed to fill in the gaps left by the Raven team when bringing some of the Jedi Outcast models to Jedi Academy, such as Desann and Lando, neither of which had the correct soundsets. At first I didn't realize Desann didn't have his soundset, as I never play that model, but lo and behold I checked and he's set on Cultist1. Whose bright idea was that? Anyway, the author brought all of the sounds from Jedi Outcast and gave them back to Desann so now he can sound like his old self again. Lando has also received his sounds, as well as the Chiss and Galak. Some other tweaks were made to some soundsets, including rearranged taunt/anger sounds, and some specialized sounds for the different single-player species classes. The author has given the rodian male the rodian soundset, and the Kel Dor male the gran soundset. The Twi'lek female has been given Jan's soundset, and the Zabrak has been given some soundset I don't recognize, but immediately knew I would enjoy. Very edgey. The author did give credit to the voice actress, though I do find myself wondering where these sounds came from as I don't recognize them in the slightest. There are a bunch of other goodies here, but I'll leave it to you guys to look them up in the read-me. This pack is designed to enhance normal gameplay by putting sounds where they should be and were left out. Personally I'm all for it, as there has been no real strange rearrangement here. I'd suggest this download to anyone who uses these models which were shafted on their sounds, as you can now fully enjoy them with the appropriate sounds. ~Inyri




clan officer customization | 731.2 KB

There is not much of a difference between the skins except for the the rank letter and the insignia on the collar. you have to choose the head customization to select the skins .There is no name mentioned in the species menu , i dont really see the need for a clan ranks in the sp but this is a good start and i hope the author will make some complex customizations in the future. elros




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

Alternative Dark Ending | 8.58 KB

like him you might enjoy this. After you defeat Kyle and flatten him by making a load of rocks fall on him, insted of jumping out of the rocks Kyle will die and stay under the rocks while Luke comes along and says 'You're now one with the force' or something like that. It's all good but there is a downside. It all looks very... I dunno 'glitchy', when Luke comes along he walks into the rocks and when Luke's lying on the floor that scene sticks for awhile. It also cuts the first Tavion scene but the author tells us how to fix that: [quote]if you REALLY can't live without that scene, then you have to type "/map kor2" in the console, and then just start over, and then it SHOULD be there.[/quote] Overall it's not bad but personally I'm happy seeing Kyle live (well untill JK4).

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




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~

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

Definately worth a download! :D -TiM

I rarely like saber mods, but this one would be worth a download. ~AmosMagee

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

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




Realistic Sabers | 43.63 KB

There\'s a guy who does a voice for a character towards the end of part 1 who sounds very much like Antonio Bandaras with a cold. My favorite character of part 1 has to be the Receptionist. And Kengo even manages to fit in the Mission Impossible theme ... hummed by Rebels. I\'m sure none of this makes any sense to you guys right now, but watch it and then it will. ~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




Wilhelm Scream | 32.04 KB

Toy Story to The Two Towers. The scream was first recorded in 1951 for the movie, \"Distant Drums\". Since then it has been used in 50+ movies. I\'m not sure how well-known the scream is by all of you - but when I found out about it a few years ago, I\'m always listening for it. :D I\'m surprised that no one thought of making this famous scream into a sound mod until now! Finally, {DX}LordSlapnutz brings this classic and easily recognized scream to the guys who are really known for it - Stormtroopers! Heck, the scream should be the Stormtroopers\' taunt! Good work for bringing us a sound mod that should\'ve been made ages ago! ~AmosMagee




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




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-




Link Sword Mod (v3.1) | 12.7 MB

ability to be used as a staff. It came with a shield also that I do not like at all because it is not textured. I liked the Master Sword mainly because it looked good . The problem with the shield is first it is untextured and it is also way too big. The Master Sword looks hot like it is on fire! The Diety sword also looks really cool. I think he just took the sabers from the original link skin and changed them a bit, but who knows. There is a version with blood and I didn\'t notice much of a difference I just think it emits blood :/. Overall this pack is interesting except for the fact that for some odd reason there is another weapon called Wolverine claws and they are just claws :/. They look really cool though! Good job Vouksh and you should know me from a previous time .[/quote] Unfortunately, it seems nothing has changed about this mod. I didn\'t test the no-blood versions of the swords, but I did notice that there was a bit of an error message coming up whenever I hit someone with one of the swords. \"WARNING: Re...\" Y\'know what? Just look at the second screenshot there. So the good thing about this mod is it takes these swords and makes them much more sword-like, and less like sabers. The sounds, to me, were a bit too harsh though. Or exaggerated. Or something. The author says that he made 3.1 to fix the untextured shield ... but ... um, he didn\'t. Also, is it just me or is the damage like way too high on these swords? I killed my bots often in just one hit. Jedi Archy made some comments on the 3.0 version and he made some very good points. I suggest the author go back and read his comment. It might help for version 3.2. :) ~AmosMagee




Lightsaber Cursors | 17.07 KB

the little things that really make modding the game fun. It comes with PK3s for each lightsaber color, for your coloring goodness. Just try to stay in between the lines. - Chrono




Chat Icon Color Pack | 41.96 KB

overall color of the icon to Blue, Green, Purple, Red or Yellow. The way you choose this (Which I think is pretty nifty) is that each color is in it's own PK3 file, so you just drag the one you want into the base directory, and replace it when you want another one! Overall, I think this is a great mod! It's small and it does it's job very efficiently. There's nothing I can see that's bad (No criticism this time! ;) ) with it, and overall, you should get it now! -TiM




Saber SiC | 77.27 KB

sounds on me. I like my saber sounds, darn it! Luckily, this one doesn\'t have sounds. It just has this cool saber trail thingy. I\'m not quite sure how to describe it. Is it a swirly thing? Is it an eye? I don\'t know! Whatever it is, I like it. It gives a nice flair to the trails when you\'re doing, like specials and stuff. Great job with this mod! ~AmosMagee




Masamune (v2) | 196.18 KB

just isn\'t right about it. Whether it\'s the sounds, or the saber trails, there might be something you want changed. So take a page out of WaR_ShArK_aX\'s book and make the changes yourself. WaR_ShArK_aX really liked the Masamune sword created by JediMaster90888, but wasn\'t fond of the blade or the sounds and wanted some saber trails back. So after enhancing the color of the blade to make it appear more silver than grey and modifying just a few of the sounds, he was well on his way to a sword mod that he would want to use. The crowing glory would have to be the new saber trail he added to this sword. The trails definitely do this sword justice. Great job! New Sounds: Yep[/quote] Okay, grrr. In the update to this sword mod, the author has managed to please me and annoy me at the same time! You all know how I feel about sounds in weapon mods - but WaR_ShArK_aX actually succeeded in pleasing me with the sword sounds featured in this mod. They work so well with the sword itself. The sword seems heavy, and the sounds match that. There are sparks when your blade hits a wall or the floor and when a saber blocks your sword, the sounds almost make you feel the vibrations as your sword bounces off. But then, WaR_ShArK_aX takes away the one thing I liked about the first version of the mod - the saber trail! I suppose it didn\'t really work with a sword mod - but I liked it! All in all though, I\'d have to say that this is a great update. I will be keeping this sword in my base folder. Great work, WaR_ShArK_aX! ~AmosMagee

Arc Blades | 444.47 KB

two PK3s. One animated, and one static. They both look identical (see picture) but function differently. I was expecting a brilliant arc of electricity in these animations...but all it looked like was 4-framed animation of lightning reaching out and then coming back in. Kind of killed my expectations there. Still, to accomplish that with shaders is no easy task (trust me, I design shaders) so hats off to the author in that respect! Hopefully we\'ll get another version that has a little more detailed animation on those arcs. - Chrono




Fire Blades | 183.42 KB

shoots out from your saber hilt. The result is a bit of a shorter blade, but the effect looks very cool. It looks good in each color, but not surprisingly, this effect looks best on an orange saber. Also included is a pk3 that reduces the effects of the saber glow, core and blur, thereby allowing the fire effect to show through. {THC}ShovelHead, the author, claims that he created this little saber mod to go hand-in-hand with another mod of his, coming up, called Burning Hand Technique. After testing both mods together and seperately, I have to say that I prefer these Fire Blades without the Burning Hand Technique. ~AmosMagee




Jedi Academy: Reloaded (1.2 Win) | 590.31 KB

1.1, um ... yeah, get this to update your server! :D ~AmosMagee Here\'s the original review and my review of the mod: [quote] -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A long awaited major admin based mod for you all This mod is the [un]official mod for the Jedi Academy. A server-side only modification designed to keep the peace and order on the servers. With that in mind, I set out and improved this mod with the way I wanted it to in the past. It\'s loaded with Admin Commands, Client Commands, Options, and cVars; Extremely modified to meet any clans expectations. This is truly the only mod you will ever need to get that doesn\'t alter the normal gameplay of Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy® Please visit us at, or on IRC at #jedi-academy, #ja-reloaded @ Linux version coming soon!!! The v1.0 most noted commands are below: Server Admins can now pick and choose what commands they wish to allow their \"am\" and \"jk\" level admins to use. g_mAdminCommands - cVar bit value to determine which \"am\" commands are allowed for their admins. g_mKnightCommands - cVar bit value to determine which \"jk\" commands are allowed for their knights. rcon admin can always execute the commands even if they are disabled to other admins. aminfo - now prints commands that are accessable to admin, instead of just commands in the mod. amhelp - now prints commands help to the admins pending if they are accessable to them. New IP Range Banning Admin Command ( mbanrange) g_mDebugEmpower - Will enforce the \"No Force\" rule and will not allow empowered clients to have force. Spectator Followers can now be kicked, banned, etc. without affecting others. mvstr - command that allows you to choose which map you want in the rotation, without disrupting the order. mnextmap - executes next map available in rotation. Most default settings that were in reloaded.cfg are now hardcoded into mod for faster and easier configuration. mnpcaccess does not give client access to cheats. You can now use clients names for assigning mnpcaccess/mnpcnoaccess. g_mAdminGun - Enables/Disables AdminGun system. (includes script) g_mAllowTeleFlag - default is enabled, if set to 0, clients cannot teleport during CTF and CTY gameplay. New BanIP.dat file stores banned ip\'s. Full use of 2048 saved ips activated! Tweaked the whois command a little again to make it more stable. g_mGiveAdmin - if set to 1, you can grant an admin access level to anyone on the server. madminaccess, mdenyadminaccess - commands for granting/denying admin access to clients. Enable/Disable use of black color names. New logout function - to logout as an admin or knight. Ignore - ignore certain clients from chatting so you dont have to listen to them. Sleeping clients can no longer use the kill command. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- With that said, here is the latest version of Jedi Academy: Reloaded. According to ChosenOne, there were quite a few code tweaks, but I\'m not gonna get into that. One of the cvars that I love is the g_mSTFU ... hehe. When enabled, it\'ll silence chat on Duel and PowerDuel gamemodes. Chosen also mentioned that one of his favorite things in this mod is the Empowered vs. Terminator gameplay. I can\'t say I\'ve tested it yet, but I look forward to it! He\'s also included some cvars that allow you (the server owner) to set permissions for Admins and Knights. So let\'s say you have a group of admins and you don\'t want them banning people - just sleeping and kicking. Just set the appropriate values and voila! Speaking of banning, the new banIP.dat ... y\'know the one that in JK2 would hold over 1,000 IP\'s ... yeah ... it now holds 2,048!!! Very cool. Of course, I don\'t think I could ban that many people. My JK2 banned IP list never got full with JA mod. So, now with the aminfo and amhelp commands, they\'re like, customized to the permissions that you have as an admin. Very cool. The admin gun, popular among some admins, is now enabled. Personally, I just didn\'t like using it. Not a good enough range for me. And frankly, I\'d end up sleeping or kicking the wrong person. Oh, and it looks like Chosen fixed a few bugs from version 1.0. Be sure to read the readme for the full list of changes and features. You\'re going to need to read the whole thing if you\'ve never used the JA mod before. I\'d like to personally thank Chosen for making such a wonderful mod that helps to keep servers under control. My favorite feature, by far, has to be the sleep command. With it, I can easily get a lamer\'s attention and explain the rules to him - instead of having to kick him because he continues to lame, but isn\'t reading the rules. Y\'know? Jedi Academy mod for JK2 was definitely the best admin mod out there. I am fairly confident that Jedi Academy: Reloaded will become a favorite for us in JA. [/quote]

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




Body Blood | 193.38 KB

looks like moulding leaves, you actually see blood! Yes, blood! This mod also changes the effect bullets have on a character, they are no longer little black holes, but litte red holes, just to make things a little more realistic ;) It\'s a nice idea, and this mod is well made, but I can\'t see this being the most popular mod ever because its not really an amazing advancement, but if you want more gore in your games, download this! ~Szico VII~




WBA Weapons Test | 7.08 MB

for a mod I assume he will presumably be releasing (SOON!!!!). There are so many changes here it\'s hard to tell you where to start. Every weapon (mostly) has been replaced by a non-energy weapon from the Dragon Remix mod (pretty much all single sabers have) along with effects and everything else I can think of (except some sounds). He did note that (and I noticed) there are quite a few bugs with some of the weapons. If anyone out there (hint: myself if I had time) is willing to help Covax and co. iron these bugs out, by all means contact him! Overall greatness? Probably not, no. Well on its way? Definitely. - Chrono




Xalius Episode I Sabers, v.2 | 198.58 KB

Master_Xalius will make your saber blades thinner and sleeker, a form he believes to be more like that of the sabers seen in Episode I. In addition to changing the look, this file will also change the sounds from your sabers. While the sounds are pretty good, I think I prefer the sounds that come with the game. These tend to be a little long for my liking. For instance, when you put your saber away the sound continues long after it has been deactivated. Seeing as how it’s no longer there, the humming really shouldn’t be there either. I do agree with him on the look though. I decided to bust out Episode I again, just for fun and because I thought it’d be good to check, and I think these are a fairly accurate depiction of the sabers seen in Episode I. This is a pretty decent mod if you don’t like the current sabers or have a desire to be back in Episode I again. But I think it would be much better if it were a visual only mod. Take out the new sounds and I’d probably keep it around for a while, but with these new sounds I don’t think it’ll stay very long. - Daku[/quote] Technical Data: Pros: 1. New graphics. Cons: 1. Almost no more sounds. Rating: 5/10 JEDIofONE :mepimp:

I opened the npc to find his health set to 800 and all his force maxed out. Maul power, only without his taunts or sounds. Let\'s see an update to this with the sounds included, and maybe some more Sith added on, hm? :D Technical Data: Pros: 1. Maul! All newcomers will be owned! Cons: 1. None of Maul\'s sounds were included. 2. Kyle is unnecessarily replaced by Darth Maul. Rating: 8/10 JEDIofONE :mepimp:




JK3 Weapon Sound Mod | 8.97 MB

or any number of things. Many of these mods were quite popular and got high ratings. Personally, I like the sounds just the way they are, thank you very much. But you guys are modders, it\'s in your nature to change things. :) This sound mod changes everything from saber sounds to blaster shots. According to the author, these sound changes make it a more immersive gaming experience for players. I dunno. I have to disagree. While the changes he made sound great, I don\'t think they work for the game. Yes, they are more reminiscent of the movies, but those sounds were made for the movies, not for a game. In my opinion, they just don\'t sound right. But don\'t listen to me! Download this huge file and decide for yourself. (By the way, I believe this file is so big because the author included EVERY wav available, whether he changed it or not.) ~AmosMagee




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




Zoog Saber | 984 B

you’ll get two double blades. That’s about all this mod does. Still, although I wouldn’t use this mod on a server (since it is somewhat cheap) I had a lot of fun hacking up bot while testing it and it does look cool. Altogether, Zoog saber was a good idea that turned out nicely, even though there’s not much to it. 7/10 ~DeathBringer




MP JK2 Voice For JKA | 294.75 KB

cold voice announce \"Red team is in the lead\" and we cringed. We never thought it possible, but we wanted that Mon Mothma voice from JK2 back!

Flame-Thrower Mod | 577.5 KB

little about this mod. The mini-mod by Dark_maul replaces force lightning in JKA with the Flamethrower from Bobba Fett in SP (or at least that’s what it looks like.) Now, coding being my worst subject in editing, I can’t really tell you whether or not taking one in game shader and putting into the place of another is difficult, although I wouldn’t think it is. Still as far as I’m concerned this was a good idea and it turned out good. I even like it better then the normal lightning. This is a very clean and professional looking mod, and the flame looks like it could be right out of the game (this COULD have to do with the fact that it is.) Basically, if your looking for something to spice up your game, I would defiantly recommend this. Great idea Maul, hope to see more from ya. ~DeathBringer

New Force Icons | 4.24 MB

graphics for the force icons in JKA. As you can see from the screenshots below, Dark Side powers are red (obviously!) blue is Neutral powers and green is Light Side powers. Personally I think it would have made more sense for the Light Side powers to be blue and Neutral to be green, but as the colour scheme has been taken from Dark Forces 2 I guess I cant complain as that is one of my favourite games. All in all a nice little mod here, personally I think these look much nicer than the base JKA icons! I also think a JK2 version of this mod would be cool! Give it a download if you fancy a change! ~Nozyspy~




Missing NPC's | 1.39 MB

from the readme which explains what each of these missing NPC's is and what it does: [quote]The NPC's are: glider mark1 mark2 minemonster The glider is a flying reptile native to Yavin IV. It looks like a cross between a pterodactyl and a heron. When you spawn it, it will be "asleep." The easiest way to wake it up is to spawn a jawa nearby and walk in front of it. This works well for droids as well. The glider doesn't move very quickly, but it will follow you if you were the first person it saw when it woke up. Otherwise it's harmless. RavenSoft didn't make any sounds for the glider. For a more dynamic glider, check out my [url=;120635]Glider Vehicle pk3[/url]. It uses the pekopeko and shakk sounds. The mark1 is a large, heavily-armed attack droid. It'll attack as soon as it sees you. The mark2 is a small droid that sort of sits there whirring about as if deciding what to do next. So far as I've seen, it's harmless. Minemonsters, or "shrugs" as we've been calling them on the server for ages, are nasty little creatures from the crystal mines of Artus Prime. They're surprisingly fast and vicious, and a swarm of them can cause serious injuries in a short time. Thankfully, they're not very smart.[/quote] Well I certainly remember the Mine Monsters from Artus Prime in JK2, nasty little critters. If you take a look around the cantina level of JK2 when you speak to the Chiss Bartender, have a look around, there is actually a a pit nearby where a couple of patrons are fighting Mine Monsters! The glider is also really cool looking, but alas it doesn’t really do much. I also remember the Mark1 and Mark2 from the Doomgiver levels in JK2; the Mark1 is the mini AT-ST type thing that breakes out of some crates in the Doomgiver levels and attacks you, and the Mark2 is basically a mouse droid type thing... with a gun! Overall then a small but interesting mod which you can definitely have some fun with if you put it on your server! :D ~Nozyspy~

anything about the source material, I can see that this is a very slick and well made mod. There is plenty of movement in the menus and such, this is immediately obvious when the main menu screen loads, and a giant \'U\' symbol tries to leap out of the screen to kill you with its sharp stabby edges. :P They certainly aren’t static, that’s for sure, the ingame menus pulse slowly and even the cursor moves gently from side to side. The HUD is neatly rolled into just one package on the left side of the screen, which contains everything you need to know. Once again the graphics and presentation here are very slick! This also happens to have been made for a clan who\'s logo is also the Unreal logo, however since that is the case this is perfectly suitable for anyone who might be a fan of the Unreal Tournament games! Overall I think this is a great piece of work, although my main complaint is that giant \'U\' on the main menu, the way it zooms in and out and moves around is a bit hypnotic and it was uncomfortable to look at after a little while, I would suggest maybe lessening the amount of movement it does, but that\'s just me. Keep up the excellent work! ~Nozyspy~




Neo Dark Ages - Version A3.16

neo_dark_ages.txt | 177 B

the download link only!*** Well, what a treat we have for you today! The long awaited Neo Dark Ages mod is here and it looks fantastic! As you can probably guess from the title of the mod and a cursory glance at the screenshots below, this is a dark ages/middle ages themed mod with the ever present fantasy twist. [b]Maps[/b] There are only two maps included here, a small mountain/canyon type map and a much larger medieval village type map. The mapping work on both is very good, though it is in some aspects a little blocky and some of the textures a little lower resolution that they probably should be, but it isn’t anything major and they are both very good. The village map is most certainly my favourite as it captures the fantasy/medieval village theme perfectly. Plenty of old wooden buildings placed on multiple levels with rocky outcrops and huge walls. The gate in the middle wall even has a dragon (!!) blocking the path. I did attack the dragon, but for some reason it did not cause me any damage, so I do not know whether that is a bug. That brings me on to the next major feature, probably my favourite part of the whole mod... [b]Weapons[/b] The weapons are, in a word, amazing. Some of the best weapon modelling, texturing, effects, and sounds I have ever seen. Not only is there a huge variety to choose from such as; axes, warhammers, swords, shields, pikes, banners and an assortment of more fantasy themed things like mystic looking tree branches and daggers. There are many more variations of each of these weapons to choose from as well. And that's only the melee weapons! For ranged weapons there is a crossbow which fires flaming arrows, a tree branch type thing that shoots mystical green energy balls, a dragon which sits on your back and breathes fire, and angelic wing that sits on your back and shoots angelic energy and a staff that shoots lightning bolts. Wait, I haven’t finished yet! Then there is a strange mechanical looking device which shoots balls of cosmic energy accompanied by effects that look like exploding galaxies when they hit and even a cross which shoots cross shaped bolts of energy. Yes I do mean a crucifix. A strange weapon to replace the Bryar Pistol, but it was kind of fun! The visual effects for these weapons are all new and custom made and the sound effects compliment the weapons wonderfully and sound amazing. I have to say I had quite a lot of fun firing the crossbow at the bullseye targets lined up in the village map. Though I think the arrows disappear too quickly afterwards, I do not know if it is possible to make the 'arrow stuck in target' effect to last longer, but I think it would be good if this was possible, as the arrows had a habit of disappearing before I could run to the target to check my aim! I can imagine this could be a very fun game itself for people to play on servers using this mod! [b]Skins[/b] There are a massive amount of skins to choose from. Knights in armour, animal skin clad barbarians, wizardy looking fellows and assassins. Not to mention the fact that you can also customise your own character using a variety of parts from the customisation menu. As with the weapons, all of the skinning here is top notch work, high resolution and packed with detail. [b]Everything Else[/b] There are many other smaller parts of the mod, which nevertheless are just as important as the large parts like skins and weapons. The main menu in particular is worthy of special note. It still has the same layout as the base JKA menu but is almost completely unrecognisable. It looks very much like an astrolabe and the moving 'cogs' in the center circle look really unique and I loved the overall feel of the menus. As for music, that two has its own unique feel that fits very well with the theme of the mod, though personally I would have preferred something a little more cinematic, Lord of the Rings perhaps? That’s just me though! Of course, no medieval setting would be complete without a trusty steed for the Knight, and yes, this mod does have ridable horses! The animation and modelling is great, but I would like to see a more open map that has plenty of space to ride the horses in, or maybe even a jousting arena? ;) [b]Conclusion[/b] This is a very unique mod and definitely worth a download. It has been in production for a long, long time; I remember looking in on the NDA website a couple of years ago out of curiosity so its great to see it come to fruition! That said this is still only an Alpha version and it has great potential to be expanded. There are quite a few features, like demo recording, a speedometer (!) and a zombie siege type mode (!!) among others! Be sure to check out the readme file for the full low down! The main thing I would probably suggest for the next version is to add a couple more maps as two isn’t very many compared to the amount of weapons and skins. Overall though I think this is very well polished for a mod that is still in alpha! Keep up the excellent work guys, you have something pretty special here, it just needs to be expanded upon! :D ~Nozyspy~ ***Please note that due to the size of this file, we could not upload it to JKFiles directly.

SWGalaxy - Jedi Academy Graphics Expansion

swgalaxy_mod_2.2.txt | 169 B

the download link only!*** [i]Firstly, I should apologise to the makers of this mod for the delays in getting it reviewed. Apart from the huge filesize, which was a problem for the site upload I am the only one working here at the moment (we are unable to hire new staff due to login bugs) and I have so many things to get done![/i] I have seen graphical improvement mods for a few other games, usually involving higher resolution textures or higher poly models, but here we have something rather special; a [i]huge[/i] graphical improvement mod for JKA, which not only has given the games textures a good going over, but adds some really beautiful new shader and bloom effects, helping to make JKA that little bit prettier! Before I go on though I should mention that I had some complications getting this mod to work. I run Windows 7 (XP was my old friend, Vista was evil and shall burn in hell) and I was getting the “VM_Create on UI Failed” error message in the console that stops the game from starting. On Vista and 7 this can be fixed by running JKA as an administrator and setting it to Win XP service pack 2 in the compatibility tab (right click on shortcut then properties). However this mod obviously did something which invalidated that. However, after a bit of faffing around and experimenting, I got it to work by going to my gamedata folder and doing the administrator/XP Compatibility thing on the jamp.exe (should also work for jasp.exe) and doing the same for the JAMinimizer.exe which can be found in the same folder. After that I used the mods shortcut on my desktop and it worked fine. Though when you set your display resolution and other things in game, you will need to restart the game properly for it to work. I should also mention that you need to make sure you select the correct path for your LucasArts/Jedi Academy folder in the installer as it is not set by default! Also, don’t forget to use the JA Configurator Tool to make sure the mods graphical and other settings (of which there are a variety, such as menu, JA++ etc.) are right for you! And if you decide you want to uninstall it that is very easy, just use the Uninstall Shortcut and it is done in a jiffy, so you needn’t worry about digging through your base folder to delete things. Anyway, on with the features! Apart from masses of revamped textures, which have been given more of a grainy, harsh look (those these can be turned off in the configurator), there are also some amazing bloom/glow effects. On their own, the textures would probably look a bit over done, but combined with the bloom effects it gives JKA a feel much more like the graphics in modern games. Daytime skies in particular look amazing with the bloom shader, though beware of snow, as the bloom effect washes out all detail in the snow texture and basically makes the ground look like a light bulb! I suppose they don’t call it snow blindness for nothing! There is a completely new menu, a rather eclectic mix of new skins and the ability to have a first person view for lightsabers, among many other things! I imagine some people will not like the way the game looks with this mod, it is a [i]big[/i] change and things like bloom effects tend to be love them or hate them kind of things. Still I think this mod is well worth a try if you are looking to spruce up the way JKA looks! I think the screenshots below speak for themselves! Unfortunately there are a few bugs here and there, one i encountered was that the graphcis settings kept resetting themselves. Another one is that for some reason maps which use portal skyboxes appear invisible which renders them unplayable. Rather weird bug! I cant think what could be causing a bug like that. :S Overall though this is a pretty amazing mod, I have not seen the likes of this before and I think this is some thing pretty special, so good work to all the people who worked on this! :D ~Nozyspy~ ***Please note that due to the size of this file, we could not upload it to JKFiles directly.

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!***

Tron Legacy Theme | 3.53 MB

is out I still haven’t got it. I am afraid I do procrastinate sometimes! Anyway, this little mod changes the main start-up and map loading screens and gives the main menu a makeover, with a new animation in the center area which features a rotating wire frame character, which looks suitably Tron-y. Overall I think this is a cool little mod, especially if you are a fan of Tron Legacy. I do feel there are a few areas which can be improved upon though. My main gripe is that the images, especially on the main start-up screen are rather low resolution and show a lot of compression artifacts; those little blocky squares you often find on .jpgs which have been compressed to make the file size smaller at the cost of image quality. Other that that, I think it would be cool to replace the main menu music with something from the Tron Legacy soundtrack. Anyways, keep up the good work Zicmak, I hope to see more mods from you soon! :) ~Nozyspy~




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




Jedi Academy Hollywood Style | 143.64 MB

author. First off, let's start with the first thing that caught my eye, the metal textures. They've been improved from the stock textures and given a nice new reflective-shine to them. Next on the list is the rock textures, they're not exactly what I'd call HD but good-looking, nonetheless. Finally, the effects files have been altered a bit as well; the bow-caster has the most noticeable change compared to the blaster, and speaking of which the pistol now has a nice new metal muzzle. Over-all, the Hollywood title may be a bit deceptive, but it's still a decent graphical tweak, so if you're into that sort of thing give this a try and don't forget to leave a hand print in the cement :D -Computernerd. [quote]DESCRIPTION:This is a graphics tweak and small weapons mod .I have added a chrome fx to all the metal texture through out the whole game and I have tweaked all the rock textures to make them more hi-def looking .Along with these improvements I also made new textures for the thermal detonators the disruptor rifle the DL-44 heavy blaster pistol and tweaked the E-11 blaster rifle and the wookie Bowcaster to look more like the movies Hope you like these changes.Now go fourth and blast some stormtrooper *&%^$%@![/quote]

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

I'M AWESOME, REVIEW ME ALREADY [b]Me:[/b] Hnnng *starts up JKA* [b]File:[/b] GO ON, TRY ME! [b]Me:[/b] ...Huh. This is actually kinda neat. So, basically: [quote]This is a simple mod that makes the flash effect for the Detonation Pack much brighter and longer. I suppose it would be good for distractions in a battle.[/quote] A file that makes the det pack explosion brighter, longer, and more blinding. Here's the good part though - it only happens if you're standing close to an exploding det pack. If you move sufficiently far away, you get the default explosion. It's actually kind of neat; might be useful for an RP server or two. But, alas: there's always an issue. Two if you count the fact that my connection just broke for the 43092358th time and I have no idea whether I'll be able to finish this review. ...Okay, panic over, connection's back. Basically, here's the issue: -First off, on extremely wide ingame resolutions (like my 1920 x 1080), the effect won't cover the entire screen - the sides of my screen are normal, whilst the middle of my screen is exploding in a blinding flash of light. I'm sure you can imagine how it gets annoying. I'm not entirely sure whether this is fixable though, and doubt there's much the author can do about it -Secondly, though it's not supposed to affect the rocket launcher's explosions according to the readme, it kind of does. The effect is fairly unnoticeable though (unless suffering from the above bug), and not all that blinding. Still, I can imagine there being some use for it, particularly amongst ye RPers. -Caelum

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~




Ultimate Kyle

ultimate_kyle.rar | 14.69 MB

:P This mod actually does a few things, namely it replaces all of Jaden\'s cinematic dialogue and heal sounds with appropriate dialogue from Kyle, which has some pretty hilarious results. But that’s not all, as we also have a new, younger looking, Kyle skin though the difference is only quite small, with the grey patches in his hair and beard having been toned down by making them a little more brown. It does take a few years off him though! Unfortunately though, this replaces the default Kyle. I’m not a big fan of when skins replace existing base skins, so in any future versions I would prefer to see this skin as a separate one. More impressive though are the Kyle skins available from the customization menu, which I think look really good and are certainly a change from the somewhat boring old Kyle. The textures are good quality and there are several variants to choose from for torsos and legs, though only one head unfortunately. That said, there seems to be a bug with the leg selection menu, as whatever you select only changes the look of the boots and not the trousers as well, the trouser texture being set by which ever torso you choose, which limits customizability. If that bug could be fixed we would have a really nice selection of customizable Kyle parts to choose from! Wait... that sounded so wrong, almost like going into a shop and asking “can I have one of Kyles legs please?” “Yep, that well be 5000 credits please!” Rounding off the mod nicely are some new splash screens for when the game starts up and for when you are loading a map and a new main menu video with a cutscene from JK2 featuring the Ravens Claw approaching a planet. The author has also replaced the main menu music with the main menu music from JK2, which brings back some memories! Overall this is a clever mod, I especially liked the Kyle customizations and the way that Jaden\'s dialogue has been replaced with Kyles voice, though you will have to replay the game to get the full effect. Keep up the good work Jedi_hm2! ~Nozyspy~




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~




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.

Alternate AFK Chat Icon | 2.93 KB

people actually are AFK when their chat bubble appears, this could be quite useful, although unfortunately, everyone else needs to have this mod to see when other people are \'probably AFK\'. What we really should have had in JKA was a chat bubble for when we are chatting, and another bubble which appears when a person opens the options menu or has been idle for a certain amount of time, indicating they are AFK. Unfortunately though I cant see how this would be possible to mod. Of course, if you actually are chatting, a big sign saying \'probably AFK above your head isn’t going to be very accurate, but this is a clever little chat bubble mod nonetheless. Download if you like the idea! :) ~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~




Ingame Menus fix | 172.75 KB

Menus[/file] mod. According to the author: [quote]With this mod you can open the serverbrowser, create an own server and watch a demo while you\'re ingame. Although you\'re leaving the game if you\'re watching the demo or create an own game (obviously). Thats hardcoded and not fixable. It\'s just a small fix to the mod Ive released in 2007. The old version had some small issues, which I fixed now. For example sometimes you couldnt open the menu and there were also some graphical issues Ive fixed. You can also use it, if youre playing japlus or any other mod. Just copy the file to your mod folder (like gamedata/japlus for example).[/quote] So, for those too lazy to read that, this release fixes several small issues with the previous release, and allows you to open the server browser, server creation menu or demo watching menu whilst ingame. I do have one gripe with this mod: when I open any of these (for instance the server browser) using this mod and then hit escape, it gets me stuck on the main menu with no way out. Hitting the back button works just fine, but hitting escape gets you stuck and forces you to reconnect. Also, for the record, this mod won\'t work if you\'re already running the [file=\"117420\"]Ingame Server List[/file] mod. It\'s one or the other. :p -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




Royal Guard Pack | 6.14 MB

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!

JAX 1.02a GUI Fix | 1 MB

remember how much fun we had with, and how useful the admin commands in particular were back in my clan days. Ahhh nostalgia! Anyway, here we have a mod for the client side version of JA+, which can be found [file=41256]here[/file]. What this mod does is change the look of the JA+ Client Side main menu, simple as that! Be sure to take a look at the screenies below to get a look at what the new menu is like. As for improvements, I would like to see the new menu theme extended to the menus you can call up when you are playing too, not just the main menu. Mainly however I would like to see the loading screen fixed, since... there doesn’t appear to be any! Unfortunately instead of a loading screen (the one you get if the map does have a levelshot) you just get the missing texture \'grey square of death\'. Apart from that though, good work here! If you use JA+ often and you fancy a change for the look of the menus, then why not give this mod a try? ;) ~Nozyspy~




Jaden Sounds & NPC

jaden_sounds_npc.rar | 1.07 MB

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 [b]English Jaden Male:[/b] 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 [b]10 sounds.[/b] 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! - 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

your screen and make black text that people inevitably use less difficult to read. However, you get to choose just how to resolve that issue. Honestly, the screenshots will say more in less time than I can, so take a gander and see if this would serve your interests. Thought this\'d go without saying, but since Cael\'s a dork, I\'ll mention it: Just put one in, folks. Definitely something that shoulda been out sooner, but it\'s here now, so DIG IN AND BASK IN ITS GLORY! - Averus Retruthan

Cool Star Wars Splash Screens | 3.21 MB

like 2 of the 3 new images presented here. The third one is ok, but could be vastly improved. The splash screen was replaced with... a poster showing... the entire saga, from Ep. I to VI? Well, okay, maybe just imagery from the original trilogy on one side and the prequels on the other, but it still looks very good. Definitely a keeper. The loading screens are now a fan-made render of a space-skirmish between tie-fighters and x-wings. This one looks good, though there is slight room for improvement. The main menu background has been replaced with a screenshot of one of the space skyboxes from in-game. While it looks okay, I feel a much better job could have been done here. For one thing, the crosshair is still there, though with the center grid thingy, it makes a nice map-marker. My advice: Either make a pulsing glow shader for that crosshair (and color it to stand out), or remove it. The other area of improvement would be the menu itself. Again, only the background was changed, with no transparency. As is, there's a stark contrast between the background and the button frames, and while it looks strange, it almost works. So, in a nutshell? Keep the splash and maybe the loading screens, but not the background. ~Crazy




New Menu Pictures

new_menu_pictures.rar | 2.62 MB

images. -------- Hmm..... Of the three images that are changed (main menu background, no-levelshot-MP, and startup splash), one looks okay, one looks nice, and one needs serious work. No-Levelshot (MP): Simple black, with 2 unignited lightsaber hilts crossed. This one looks good. I have no qualms with it, so moving on. Startup Splash: It\'s the default splash, but with the blue background replaced by an image of Darth Vader\'s head. While the default lettering has been blended well here, this image would work better with completely new lettering instead. Main Menu Background: I couldn\'t stare at this one for long, to be honest... While the image is okay and straightforward (Being the poster for Ep. II), the author did not take the other elements of the main menu into account. The result is, most of the characters in the poster are covered up, and the buttons/button frames clash horribly with their surroundings. Also, the background image doesn\'t have any transparency, so the center video and scrolling text to the sides are covered up. I can\'t say anything else without descending into, um... \"bull\" land, so I\'ll stop here. ...On second thought: Here. ~Crazy




Sabers Startup Screen for JKA | 467.79 KB

deliver. The design is too large for the screen and you lose the title \"Start Wars\" ... it gets chopped off at the top. Also there are no new sounds and the buttons haven\'t been altered at all. I do like the combination of sabers, lightning and moon (planet?), but all together like that, with the logo on the side makes for a bit of a cramped design. It\'s just a tad too cluttered for my taste. ~AmosMagee




JAX | 355.54 KB

different to the food other than the packaging. While that\'s no entirely true with this file, it\'s not far off. So this mod is designed to work in tandem with JA+, and all it does at the moment is change some graphical elements. Here\'s what it alters: - New splash screen that appears when the game starts up. - New connection screen picture. - Grapple hook reskin - Main menu logo reskin - Black saber reskin - RGB core reskins All in all, it still doesn\'t really seem extreme, just like a couple changes that might or might not benefit the average user. As it stands, it\'s only worth the RGB core or the black saber reskins, though I warn you, the black saber has a bad sling blur effect, so even that could be crossed off the list if you\'re picky. This has been promised to be updated, so I guess take a look or wait until more is released o_O - Averus Retruthan




His Holy Noodliness: The Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM) | 1.75 MB

skyboxes. -------- There isn't a whole lot to review here, other than the fact that the chosen FSM image could have been better. Sure, the quality is good, but I think this would be better with something more, um... [i]2D[/i] This mod affects the skyboxes used in 4 of the 5 FFA maps. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately, for fans of FSM), this affects more than just the FFA maps, as the baseJKA skyboxes are shared a lot. Not only among the base maps, but custom ones too, since skyboxes are often hard to make. But no worries. It's still an interesting mod, to say the least. And Caelum, for boasting that you were in my reviewmobile in the (pre-review) description box, I sentence you to 20 lashes... ...And a version 2. :P ~Crazy




Raschu's and Ashura's Steampunk Pack Teaser | 24.41 MB

the following: [b]- A new kyle reskin:[/b] Kyle has now gotten quite rustic, and has been given a new sort of coat and pants, giving him a rather patrician look, for the most part. Pretty neat looking, I'll give ya that. Might make a fitting kyle override...yes =_= [b]- A new jan reskin:[/b] Jan pretty took a different approach, with an all white undersuit and rustic brown jacket and hair to match. It also seems to have french taunts, so you've been warned if you experience culture shock. Oh, yeah, both of those have bots, so fear. [b]- The Steam Saber:[/b] This in itself is a new model made by AshuraDX, and looks QUITE intense, looking quite true with the steam punk theme. Just a bit of a shame that there's no custom activation sounds, but I can definitely accept what we've got now. [b]- The StarZapper (V2):[/b] This thing has gotten a total model overhaul, albeit it seems to cling closely to the E-11 design. As with the previous version, it has custom sounds, and looks quite potent, albeit I must confess that the first person view seems to be a bit obstructive. so that might need some attention. However, it's quite awesome, and given my limited ability to describe something as ornate as this, I'm just gonna say LOOK AT TEH SCREENSHOTS AND ENJOY. So all in all, looks to be quite the delectable treat if you're into steampunk(I don't claim to be an avid fan, but it 's something I've considered looking into,) or if you just feel like something other than vanilla JA. Definitely worth a look. - Averus Retruthan




Ashura's Felucia Rancor (Add-on) | 1.9 KB

following my suggestion (seriously, since when does that happen?!?!) and creating two files that let you overwrite the default rancor skin with Ashura's Felucia rancor. What this means is you can now make the default rancor look like this :) [b]Note:[/b] you will need to install both this file [i]and[/i] [file="116471"]the original Felucia rancor[/file] for this to work! -Caelum




Sl2 LightSaber Blades

sl2_lightsaberss.rar | 52.52 KB

distinct. A list doesn\'t hurt neither. I did notice something rather odd with this particular saber blade, as the core seemed to sorta \"wiggle\" about. It\'s hard to explain on paper without showing you footage. It just appeared that the core was crooked at several points in its form. The blur was also very geometric, as I could see a \"corner\" in the blur swing, which definitely doesn\'t look natural to me. Other than that, I\'m afraid there\'s not much else to say. It looks...okay, at best. I\'d say try at the very least try and cancel out that corner, if at all possible, and you\'ll be good to go, JG. - 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

of .sab files and put the model paths for guns in them. This allows you to basically hit people with the following: - E-11 - Bowcaster - Heavy Repeater - Concussion Rifle - Rocket launcher - Noghri Staff However, two issues surround the entire mod. The first issue is inappropriate sounds. Basically, it's just lightsaber noises. BZZZT! The second issue? Tagging. Basically, when you're using the weapon, you're still holding it by the grip handle, and as such, it looks very awkward to swing. However, that's what you get when you just edit .sabs. You'll know if you want it. - 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




ForceMod III Classic Edition | 119.05 MB

version.[/file] That being said, time for a quick quote from the readme as to what's changed and a little insight from a first person perspective: [b]- Corrected Gunner animations, no longer are various shooting weapons using pistol shot animations:[/b] as I alluded last time, the OJP animations Venomous Heart got were placeholders, and were thus faulty. They are not default. [b]- Corrected various shader errors with many models: [/b]Win. [b]- Modified the meditation animation from the crouching stance back to the original sitting animation:[/b] Also Win [b]- Added 2 new Melee Scale buttons in the Saberforms menus which show the variances between the different saber forms:[/b] I actually found this to be [b]incredibly[/b] informative, as it mapped out saber length, potency of each form, whether or not it was disarmable, etc. Helps gobs when you're sitting there staring at the stances with no idea what they're talking about. [b]- Added the "Quick Getting Started Section" (see below) so players can start off on the correct footing with FM3CE:[/b] Check the readme for that'n. I personally didn't need it, but it definitely gives ya some helpful tips. Welp, that about covers the changes. As it stands, I'd say the mod's at least improved, though I still loathe the spectate factor when you even so much as change your model. Other than that, not bad work, cochise. You know the drill by now. - Averus Retruthan




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




ForceMod III: Classic Edition | 118.24 MB

glorious ForceMod III: Return of the Sith. This mod would come to prove insanely popular during its age, and its class-based combat had a little something for everybody: Gamers and RPers alike would fawn over this game for years. Then, overtime, it faded into obscurity.... until now... Introducing ForceMod III: Classic Edition, an expanded version of ForceMod III. As stated by the author: [quote]ForceMod III Classic Edition picks up where the orginal ForceMod III left off. With Azymns permission to continue the series we have incorporated many new changes in this version. This includes new animations, new menus, a completely overhauled saber form and melee selections.[/quote] Sounds like a sweet deal, doesn't it? Well, it just so happens that this deal is a bit raw, unfortunately. Here's about the only thing that makes a difference: - The menus. That's about it. It turns out the new animations came from a BETA version of the Open Jedi Project, and thus he basically got the placeholder animations. There are, in fact, new and superior animations, but looks like this new guy didn't get 'em. Basically, what this means is that every gun you fire looks like you're firing a pistol, and lemme tell ya, it looks highly undesirable, thus making the mercenary classes less appealing, which sucks, since that's half the classes there. The saber form and melee overhauls are almost purely aesthetic, taking the animations for the OJP saber system and essentially applying them with few of the additional mechanics. End result? Eh, some of the saber forms from OJP remain intact, chainability included, but honestly it was probably still better fit for OJP. There seemed a little too much work gone into prettying up the saber and form menus, which, given their design, doesn't seem to really allow much of saber selection. You're either stuck with what's on the menu, or you'll have to shoehorn your custom saber in through the console(assuming it's even possible.) As for the melee, nothing much else to speak on. The menus? can read about them in the readme below. I guess wiht all the cute little additions it could possibly call people back to the mod for a little bit longer, but I'd fix the following: - Droideka Shield shader - Get the newer gun animations. - If the options open, get a saber menu that permits selection of custom sabers. Get those fixed, n' methinks you may yet save this. Otherwise, it just seems like adding a spoiler to a car: Makes the product prettier, but that's about it. Y'all are welcome to give it a shot. It might inspire a bit of interest in FM3 once more. - Averus Retruthan

The Clone Wars Lightsabers Version 3 | 1.34 MB

opinion, it's a little less realistic - the environment looks like it's full of fog. The yellow glow has also been modified. There's still an issue here that plagues this mod badly. As Averus pointed out in the previous version, the saber menu gets really messed up when you install the mod. When I used it, I got a duplicate of every saber and a few blank entries at the beginning of the list. I think you forgot to mark the SP saber files for SP only or something...that needs fixed badly. Mods are more usable when they don't goof up the entire menu list. ;) Aside from the nuclear explosion on the saber menu, this isn't bad. Check the screenshots to see what it looks like, and if it suits your fancy, you know what to do with it! ~Dretzel

The Clone Wars Lightsabers and Sounds | 4.63 MB

whatever..." and there are so many ways you can make a glowstick, as far as I'm concerned. This one is supposed to mimic some of the newer animated Star Wars media, which I refuse to follow in any way, shape, or form, so my knowledge of them is next to nothing. However, I decided to look at a promo poster of the Clone Wars movie to see what the lightsabers look like. Yep....a big fatass white core with completely rounded tip and very clear cut, distinct amount of dark, solid glow. Welp, there's his visual accuracy points for him ._.! The sounds are pretty much ho-hum, nothing most of us haven't heard before, but they're at least of acceptable quality, so no harm no foul. Now, onto some caveats: [b]- Mod replaces orange color with blue:[/b] Bad call. Trust me, you may think nobody uses orange, but there are those of us who do. Hell, [b]I[/b] use orange =_O!(Luke had me sold with it on the cover of Shadows of the Empire novel




Screen HUD 1.1 | 68.01 KB

change of colour or a few embellishments. This isn't a bad thing, far from it, I like these other mod's as well, but it is very nice indeed to see a HUD mod which is so different from so many others out there. Here we have a very simple and clean HUD, it looks like something you might see on a digital watch or one of those digital weather stations. Why I just said digital weather stations I don’t know, it was the second thing that came to my head! Now shush! :P I very much like the look of this HUD and I think I may actually keep this in my base folder! As I said, it is clean and simple and also easy to read. Though that said, the one thing I would recommend working on is making the colours for the lightsaber style indicator a bit brighter as they are a little too muted at the moment. That's just my opinion anyway. Excellent work here Darknrd, this is definitely one of the best HUD's that I've seen! If you guys are looking for a clean, simple and easy to read good looking HUD, then I definitely recommend this! :thumbsup: Downloads awaayyyy!!! ~Nozyspy~




Particle Physics mod | 109.81 KB

such as smoke, sparks and dust to collide with objects and be affected by wind. This means that particles such as smoke won't float through walls and parts of the level anymore. With this mod you may get reduced performance so it is recommended that you do not use this mod if you already have poor performance due to increased particle complexity.[/quote] Well said, Kingo64, well said. Now, the big question: does this work? Well, yes and no. This effects mod seems to work only in single player, or at least so I've achieved. If the author intended it to work in MP, let him speak so in the comments and accept my apologies, but so far the only noticeable particle effects that I believe I saw were in single player, and I did some rather exhaustive testing. What I did find was hard to judge, really. A lot of the effects I could divine seemed to have an issue where they just hung in the air for a while. I did notice that the x-wing's explosion was lot less flamboyant. You didn't see
