Well, you know I'm gonna advise hiriing one, since servers hosted from home computers aren't as good performance wise, but anyway...


Open JKA


Create server

Make it dedicated

Click any other options you want on

Click start

This will bring up the console

Open the internet

go to

Get your IP

Go back on JKA (Dont close the console)

Open the console INGAME

type /connect YOURIPHERE (replace youriphere with your ip e.g./connect 55.555.555.55)

I think theres other ways to do it but thats what most people use.

I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

I wrote a detailed tutorial available at

Click on the link "Running a Server from Home".

If you have a good broadband (DSL or cable) you can host up to 8 players connecting over the Internet, plus yourself. Since only a small percentage of Jedi Academy servers have more than 8 players on at a time, a free home-based server should work just fine.
