How would you go about by converting a Jedi Academy map to Jedi Outcast?

It would be a real help if you can tell me.

Thanks.

It involves decompiling the maps. That would be illegal.

JK2 maps work in JKA by default, but it doesn't work vice versa because the engine was updated somewhat for JKA.


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

When I was using Outcast (before I got Academy), installed Jedi Academy maps (fan made) for Jedi Outcast and they worked fine...just a few missing textures. All I did was drag and drop!

A lot of custom maps don't use the aforementioned enhancements to the engine.

It's usually the classier maps which use the advanced stuff.

This is totally illegal. You're not allowed to port JA stuff to JO.

I'm not so sure. This is a very gray area...

Ummm, if you are dragging and dropping textures and the .pk3 file, how is that any more illegal then creating a mod for any game?

If you're shuffling them from one game's assets to another game's assets it violates the EULA in about every way possible. Hence the illegalness.

Yes, but this is a game from the same publishers, from the same series and the same developers using the same slightly modified engine. It's not like you're using Star Wars music ripped from the Original Film Soundtrack... (which i have seen in some very popular maps and mods!)

As long as it doesn't permit the player to actually play Jedi Outcast (the Game) using his Jedi Academy CD, I don't think that using a few textures or sounds from jk2 to jk3 is bad. Even porting levels to be able to play them in jk3 (which i do at home) is as long as nobody is paying money for this. I love those MP JK2 levels, but I much prefer playing multiplay in JK3. I still play JK2 single player, but this is a personal preference.

Just my two cents worth.
