Some Mods (for example Movie Duels) contain an "enhanced grapic"... (look at the shadows or sabers...) The game looks BETTER than the original (base)...
I know that Jedi Academy will never look like Crysis... but what is the maximum graphic-quality you can reach with this game-engine? Is there any way to give the game a better look?
I don't say, that JA has bad graphics! But it would be very interesting to get the maximum quality out of the game :)
So does anyone know how to do that? Or does anyone know WHAT is possible?

LINK Are you talking about a visual mod like this? It adds reflection on metals and vehicles, motion blur, water reflections, bloom, and depth of feild effect. It is for Grand Theft Auto though.

its probably cool to get better graphics but wouldnt it make the game laggy?

i bet cause the dynamic glow makes ME laggy so i bet that would too. i wish they would come up with a jk4 :(

It's the Quake 3 engine. Whatever limitations it has JA is gonna have for the most part. Some issues with shadows and dynamic glow on the fps for some people.
If you want you can sit there and edit some of the base textures with photoshop and improve some of the shadering on everything. Always try that.
To many things in your base folder is kinda the only limit overall really. But in some way theres always a work around. :rofl:

JK4 ever being created or released is almost as likely as Duke Nukem Forever being released within the current century
lol, I have my own Status

Soo true, and for you guys who Dynamic Glow lags you go out and build a new computer already jeez ya know some Good parts are REALLY cheap like I can get a Kick ass vid card for like $80 (For a computer part that cheap) Anyways A Graphical update for JKA isnt really possible aside from Textures why? Because Q3 engine just cant do it, it wasnt made for it nor could it do it (not without some SERIOUS coding)
Yeah! For example something like that! Omg the GTA looks better now, lol! :D Great!!!
There's a Dragon Ball Mod called "Earth's Special Forces" for Half Life 1... they improved the graphics soooo much oO I didn't know, that Half Life 1 can look sooo good o_O They added realstic Player-Shadows and Pixel Shader Water and HD-Background-Skies.... o_O
And I though: If HL1 can look soooo good, even it's soooo old, than JA can also look much better o_O
I think improving the JA-Graphics wont make big performance-problems... I mean: The game is OLD... it's from ... mmh.... 2003??? That are 5 Years... I think nearly everyone has a better computer now...
