Thank you from FandomSpot

The amount of Star Wars-themed games is staggering, but only a few are remembered as truly great titles. Among them are gems like Star Wars: Rogue Squadron on the N64, the classic Star Wars: Battlefront II, and the Jedi Knight series.

Raven Software’s Jedi Academy is the latest and most beloved part of the Jedi Knight series. It lets you play as Jaden Korr, a new student at Luke Skywalker’s Jedi Academy. And it’s a lotta fun!

If you’ve already cleared the game’s main campaign and are looking for more action, be it multiplayer or single-player, the online modding community has you covered.

Let’s take a look at some of the best mods for a new Jedi Academy experience.

15. Jedi Academy: Enhanced

One of the most exciting aspects of the Star Wars universe is the use of Lightsabers in combat.

While vanilla Jedi Academy includes several Lightsaber options, more customization is usually for the better, which is why the JA: Enhanced mod is so good.

It lets you customize your saber’s color through the console by inputting a hex code representing the hue you want.

It also lets you customize the handle, adds holstering, and even a couple force powers to go with it. Nice!

14. The Jedi Academy Texture Overhaul

Improving an old game’s textures can go a long way towards making it more palatable for our modern standards.

Which is why Mr. Zz put so much work into the Jedi Academy Texture Overhaul.

This mod replaces some of the most amateurish and basic textures in the game with some new ones, including more detail and higher-definition stuff.

All this just to give your game facelift, while remaining true to the core game’s aesthetic.

It’s a work in progress, sure. And the author has expressed interest in coming back to perfect this overhaul in due time.

But until then, this current version is still pretty good.

13. Ahsoka Tano

Few “minor” characters in Star Wars lore receive as much love and attention from the fanbase as Ahsoka Tano, Padawan to none other than Anakin Skywalker.

This incredible character mod brings her likeness to Jedi Academy, letting you either play as Ahsoka or having her tag along with you on adventures.

She can also exist as an NPC in hub areas – which is especially useful for custom servers.

There are plenty of character and skin mods floating around for Jedi Academy, and sometimes that’s enough to improve your experience exponentially.

12. Star Wars: For the Republic

Despite being classified as a third-person shooter, Jedi Academy shines for its intense Lightsaber combat, rather than the use of blasters.

This extensive conversion mod by creator Myceley puts the “shooter” back into Jedi Academy.

It gives you a new campaign where you’ll play as a Republic Trooper going up against the Sith Empire and their armies.

It turns the game into a hardcore shooter where you’ll need cover and fast reflexes to survive. Your only goal?

To protect the people of several planets from the Empire’s oppression.

11. Revenge of the Jedi

Mods offer creators a detailed way to bring their fantasies to life, writing fanfiction in code rather than in prose.

Revenge of the Jedi by the_Last_Jedi is just that: a fantastic re-imagining of the original trilogy’s second episode, where Obi-Wan managed to survive his duel with Darth Vader, and Yoda has founded a new Jedi Temple on Dagobah.

It’s a huge mod with a staggering amount of custom assets. I mean really huge.

It includes great-looking character models that make this new story come to life as well, so it’s almost like a totally new game. Give it a try!

10. The Ladder

Initially developed by JediNight for Jedi Outcast, The Ladder is a wave-based survival level meant to test your skills against increasingly tough enemies.

It was ported to Jedi Academy by prolific mod author Circa, who modified some textures and a couple of code lines here & there to make it work in the more recent game.

This single-player map may have a simple concept, but it can provide hours upon hours of enjoyment as you hone your Lightsaber dueling skills against hordes of enemies.

9. New Beginning SP Mod

Another relatively small but sweet mod is New Beginning by creator MagSul, which serves as a direct continuation of the Light Side ending of Jedi Academy.

You’ll play as an entirely new character across two levels.

That may sound like too little, but trust me, the first one is extensive-enough for hours of gameplay if you go around exploring everything.

It’s also full of interesting easter eggs, custom assets, new dialogue, and even a couple unique cinematics.

8. Escape: Yavin IV

On the other side of the Force we have Escape: Yavin IV, a direct continuation of the Dark Side ending where Jaden Korr gives in to his dark impulses and takes the Scepter of Ragnos for himself.

Developed by The Unbeholden, this new campaign mod follows Jaden Korr after being used and discarded by a new Sith Lord, who leaves him to rot in Yavin IV for four years.

The original mod features 13 lengthy missions, custom new Lightsabers, new abilities, and upgraded visual effects.

On top of that, the more recent “Lost Missions” update adds a whopping 35 entirely new levels for you to enjoy. Yes, this one’s big.

Guaranteed to keep you busy for hours.

7. Prequel Conversion Mod

Star Wars’ prequel trilogy gets a lot of bad rep online.

But this is still where at least half of the fanbase got to know Star Wars, and their aesthetic is just on point.

Well this mod by Circa will let you immerse yourself in the world of the prequel trilogies by replacing the game’s base enemies with Trade Federation Battledroids, Super Battledroids, Droidekas and introducing enemies like Jango Fett and Count Dooku.

All the spaceships, the weapons, and even the sound effects are also modified to fit in with the prequels’ style.

6. The Dark Pastime

While its title may sound like it’s an expansion for The Sims, The Dark Pastime is a complex campaign taking place several years after the events of Jedi Academy’s Light Side ending.

In this universe, The Academy continues to fight the weakened remnants of the Galactic Empire along with the New Republic.

After a New Republic base on Goura is mysteriously destroyed by forces unknown, the Academy sends Jaden Korr’s mentor, Kyle Katam, to investigate and discover the truth.

What will you find? Well, only one way to find out.

5. Nina Series

The Star Wars universe is much more than the fight between the Sith and the Jedi.

Even if that’s the central focus of its main storyline.

This series of modded campaigns by creator Larry McBruce is one of the earliest ever to become popular.

It presents a new perspective by having you play as Nina, who’s both a bounty hunter and the youngest sister of the fallen Sith Lord Tavion.

Other than the classic “Nina 1.5” mod, the series is continued in Nina: Undiscovered Secret and Nina: Genesis.

4. Knights of the Force 2.1

One of the most ambitious works in progress for Jedi Academy is Knights of the Force 2.1.

This total conversion mod aims to introduce characters and locales from all across the three main trilogies, Rogue One and even Star Wars Rebels.

I make a point of including the version number here because this is actually a revived version of an older mod called Knights of the Force, which had been abandoned for quite some time before the current team started working on it.

I’d expect great things!

3. EternalJK

EternalJK is an updated fork of OpenJK, a massive open-source client for Jedi Academy that fixes compatibility issues with modern operating systems and hardware.

It’s also a pre-requisite for most mods on this list.

If you want to play Jedi Academy or any of the Jedi Knight games on a modern system running Windows 10, you’ll need this one.

Thankfully setup is pretty simple and it offers some guidance, but this is definitely worth learning how to install & tinker with.

2. Star Wars: Movie Battles II

Movie Battles II is easily the most talked-about and popular multiplayer Jedi Academy mod of the past decade.

It adds a truckload of characters and character archetypes to the game, so you can see why it gets so much attention.

It also introduces maps from all over the Star Wars mythos and even other games with a fitting aesthetic, adding up to over 100 multiplayer battle arenas.

It supports many multiplayer modes, not to mention massive 16v16 team deathmatches are commonplace in most multiplayer servers.

1. Star Wars: Movie Duels

While Movie Battles II is still the most popular multiplayer mod, there’s a much more recent undertaking that offers many of the same features with an updated presentation.

Movie Duels is the spiritual successor of Movie Battles II, using OpenJK as its primary engine and remastering the classic multiplayer mod with better animations, HD sound effects, music, and voice clips.

It also supports prequel-like “SFX” Lightsabers, which was sorely missing from the original.

And this even introduces some more duel stances to increase playstyle variety.

Absolutely worth a try, and may the Force be with you.

    Мод Brutality для Jedi Academy добавляет 40+ новых врагов, поддерживает большее количество разрешений, улучшает ИИ и многое другое

    Михаил Аврамов и Станислав Сметанин выпустили первую версию мода «Brutality» для Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, шутера от первого и третьего лица 2003 года, разработанного Raven Software. Мод добавляет несколько новых функций и предоставляет различные улучшения и настройки баланса.

    Modder Superior — Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy

    No matter what may happen to Star Wars, we’ll always have lightsabers. That, and loads of great games. Among the best to grace the PC is the Jedi Knight series, the last in its line being Raven’s Jedi Academy. It may owe some of its longevity as a multiplayer staple to its engine, a heavily modified Quake 3 codebase, and it can definitely chalk up its still-active modding scene to that. Between well maintained tools, open-source engine upgrades and a dedicated fanbase, Jedi Academy is still going strong in 2020. Here’s a handful of the best and biggest mods you can play today.

    OpenJK by The OpenCoders Crew

    If you’ve not played Jedi Academy in a while and have upgraded to Windows 10, odds are good that you’ll run into a brick wall the moment you try launching the game. Thankfully, modders have already come to your rescue. Even if you don’t plan on playing anything game-altering, you’ll want to grab OpenJK.

    As the name suggests, it’s an open source overhaul to some of the creakier parts of the game’s engine. Mostly bug-fixes and improved compatibility with modern hardware and operating systems, OpenJK is also a pre-requisite for most modern Jedi Academy mods, although most of the bigger ones come with their own version included. You’ll want to launch the game directly via the OpenJK single-player or multi-player .EXE files after installing this, but it does strip the game of any remaining DRM, letting you clone or move your installation independent of Steam.

    Beyond OpenJK, you might have to poke and prod the game a little to get aspect-correct widescreen working properly. Consult the venerable PC Gaming Wiki holocron for the specifics. Still, once you’ve got that squared away, most of the mods below are easy to set up. Just make sure you’ve got a clean install of the game for any larger mods, as they tend to make their own changes to the Jedi Academy EXE and DLL files.

    Escape: Yavin IV: The Lost Maps by «The Unbeholden»

    Recently demolished in under an hour live at Awesome Games Done Quick, don’t let that video make you think this single-player campaign is anything shy of immense, easily dwarfing vanilla Jedi Academy. Continuing the story of your create-a-hero protagonist from the main game, there’s a bit of clunky amateur voice acting, but it’s fun if you’re just after more levels to bound through and expendable goons to mash. As you may guess from the screenshot above, canon is a little strained here, but it does commit to a branching level structure and multiple endings.

    Escape Yavin IV’s design ethos is clearly ‘go big or go home’. Some levels have enormous outdoor segments that you can’t reasonably navigate without a speeder-bike. On the flip-side, there’s not much fine detailing to the levels, and combat encounters can be a bit haphazardly designed. Quicksaving is highly recommended as lightsaber combat is even deadlier than usual, with you going up against enemies with some truly bizarre arrangements of laser-blades. Lightsaber claws? Beam chakrams? Silly, but you can collect them all — a good reason to scour these lengthy levels.

    The Dark Pastime by Art Group Vigilant

    A brand new release from the Russian Jedi Academy modding scene, and a fresh single-player adventure starring Kyle Katarn: Ultimate Marty Stu. More focused and refined than Escape Yavin IV, it’s one of the more polished solo campaigns I’ve played, although still balanced towards veteran players. If you don’t mind quick-saving regularly, there’s a lot to like, including some open-ended levels with multiple solutions, and a return to Coruscant as a between-mission hub. There’s even a fancy new minimalist HUD.

    The current release is just Chapter 1 of a planned series that has been in production a long while. According to the Mod DB blog, most of Chapter 2 is finished, so hopefully we won’t be waiting too long for this to continue. Goofy title aside it’s a story I’m interested in following, having a soft-spot for Kyle’s beardy space adventures. Just remember to enable subtitles in the game options menu before playing if, like me, you don’t speak Russian.

    Movie Battles II by The Movie Battles II Team

    Movie Battles II is the biggest and most enduring multiplayer mod for Jedi Academy, popular enough to offer multiple full servers at most hours. This mammoth project expands on the already-solid Jedi Knight lightsaber combat with a complex point-buy class system. Pick an archetype (ranging from basic grunts to Mandalorians), one of dozens of character models, and then spend a pool of points on powers, weapons and stat tweaks. There’s a lot of room for expressive play here, and hundreds of maps, ranging from famous Star Wars scenes to Metal Gear Solid battlegrounds.

    While normally meant for large teams (servers can cram in 32 players per match), there’s some alternate play-modes included. Lightsaber duelling maps are in, as are some vehicular battles, including an X-Wing Vs Tie Fighter space combat map I was especially taken by. It’s an impressively professional production, right down to having a scripted and voice-acted tutorial, introducing you to some of the the new combat elements and extra controls you’ll have to bind. There’s an extensive in-game manual as well to fill in any blanks, and even some solid tips for playing each class.

    If there’s anything to hold against Movie Battles II, it’s that it suffers from the same problems as any very old, niche shooter scene. New players are trying to break into a small, insular scene where player skill levels are sky high and text chat is frequently edgier than a vibroblade. Also of note is that this is an extensive mod, requiring its own clean installation of Jedi Academy. Installation is simple, though — just download the latest version, unpack to Jedi AcademyGameData and run the Movie Battles 2 launcher to pull down updates as required.

    Star Wars: Movie Duels by The Movie Duels Team

    Don’t let the similar name confuse you — this is as far from Movie Battles II as you can get, outside of a gleeful adherence to replicating Star Wars setpieces. Movie Duels is a mammoth single-player mod with a laser focus on recreating famous scenes (especially duels) from the movie series, plus a number of scenarios from The Force Unleashed. The maps here are impressively detailed set recreations, and battles are often book-ended with cutscenes featuring film dialogue. Character models are a cut above the regular game, and special effects are lovingly recreated. It’s a looker.

    Being focused on clashing spaceswords, the Movie Duels team have gone to great lengths to capture the spirit of the films, right down to each character’s lightsaber stance and animations. While some levels have you hacking through waves of stormtroopers and droids, the focus of this mod is squarely on longer, more involved boss fights. Iconic battles have multiple possible endings, and there are a few fancy ‘challenge’ maps that will really push your mastery of Jedi Academy’s quirky early 2000s melee combat.

    Knights Of The Force by The Knights Of The Force Mod Team

    If Movie Duels is the digital equivalent of playing with finely crafted Star Wars movie-set dioramas, then Knights Of The Force is a big daft toybox full of poseable action figures to smash together. On the surface it appears similar, but instead of focused, accurate recreations of famous Star Wars moments (although there are some of those), you’re encouraged to make your own scenarios. Pick a level, set up squads and and keep on fighting until only one side is left standing. Then do it again. Or play one of the included scenarios.

    Unlike Movie Duels, Knights Of The Force also has a broader everything-and-the-kitchen-sink focus, featuring heroes and maps from every Star Wars era. Setting them up to create your own battles is remarkably easy. From the built-in spawn menu, you can suspend AI to have them wait until you’re set to play, assign characters to whatever faction you want, or order them to tag along with you specifically. While I’d rather be playing entirely new levels and player-made campaigns, it’s easy to see the appeal of this toybox approach.

    While it’s geared towards single-player, Knights Of The Force has full multiplayer support as well, with a dedicated server tool available from the Mod DB page. While less balanced than Movie Battles II, it’s still a fun little sandbox to play around in with friends. And if you’re short on friends, there’s full bot support, letting you set up your own silly team deathmatch scenarios.

    Much like the Millennium Falcon, Jedi Academy may creak and groan a little bit under the weight of its countless refits and modifications, but it’s still flying strong. With major mods like Movie Battles II and Knights Of The Force still updating regularly, and all new campaigns still being released, it doesn’t seem like a wonky end to the current film trilogy has dulled anyone’s enthusiasm. Games this enduring are a rare breed — here’s hoping this academy keeps turning out star students well into the 2020s.
