Ok, Im new to this whole downloading skins, mods, etc. Never done it. I just got the game in the mail and want to start out the game as Darth Maul. Can you play single player mode as him if you download the proper skin? I have xfire. When i play Call of Duty II, new multiplayer maps are downloaded automatically. Will that also occure if I play Jedi thru xfire?

Hmm for Xfire, i'm not sure if it supports that for JKA, i have Xfire myself, but it's just as easy going to pcgamemods or Jedi Knight Files, and using The Almighty Searchbar, As for your maul: LINKY: http://jediknight2.filefront.com/file/Darth_Maul_as_Jaden;21523 if you type in "maul" in the searchbar, there's also a Reborn Reskin of him..

A model is the 3D mesh. A skin is the texture which covers that mesh.

A mod is any form of modification, so almost anything hosted on the site, such as maps, models, skins etc.


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

A mod = modification, they usually modify a small part of the game.. but some (conversions, and their bigger brother with a prison record: total conversions) modify alot of the game, but not all.. Model: A hand-crafted Player-character, (or Npc), made from scratch with polygons, textures and all that jazz, Plus IT has to fit in with the game's skeleton (which is basicly the base of all animations the model does, it seems a bit complex, for someone who's never made one before.) Skin: Basicly someone using an editing program to copy one of the game's original models, and edit them to their views...Without Violating the Copywright.. Course you know what maps are.. though i'm not too good at this sorta stuff, i belive someone with more experence should be able to explain it better..

JA+ is the most popular mod out there. Unfortunately. It's popular for all the wrong reasons.

Considering 90+% of servers run it, you don't really have a choice.

You don't need the full mod, however, just the client side plugin. I believe it's on JKFiles, so run a search for it.
