All right, well I guess I'll start from the beginning.

I used to be able to play Jedi Academy fine, never had any problems. I haven't play in some while now so I decided to re-install it. After re-installing, I fired up the game, but nothing happened. Not sure what to do, I consulted my friend the task manager. He reported that Jedi Academy was running and taking up 4% of my CPU. I then tried to end the process only to receive an error message telling me that "The operation is not valid for this process."

So, I re-installed again, this time with more luck, I got the game up by using a no-CD patch (I had to, it kept telling me that I had the wrong disk in, and I'm using store-bought disks), but all my models were gone.

I then re-installed again, this time, it went back to the first problem.

My first thought was a driver problem, however I haven't updated/rolled back since I last played.

I'll try to keep working on this myself, and will update this with more information, but any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

EDIT: I also tried putting compatibility mode on all the exes (Jedi Academy, jasp and jamp) for Windows 98.

EDIT 2: Not sure what I did, but my problem is not fixed. I updated my drivers and turned off compatibility for all exes and now everything works.. Kind of ironic that old software is benefiting from new drivers.

£10 to get a disc cleaned? You got ripped off, buddy. Most Gamestation stores will do it for 99p.


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