Jedi Knight 3.5 announced. Sort of. No troll. -solitude - Apr 04 10:07am




The source code for JK2 *and* JK3 have been released.

Maybe the next JK game will be fan driven.

Just wanted to drop this in here: a project has been started called OpenJK. Goal of it is to fix up JK and eventually, maybe, start upgrading parts of the engine to add physics and such. Looks promising.


Cool beans... I'll keep my eye on this.

It is worth noting, for those that DID download it in time, if you look at the code closely, it was actually released incorrectly as well. The source labeled "Jedi Outcast" was actually JKA and the source labeled "Jedi Academy" was actually the JKA Xbox version.


Shocku!

Perhaps I have those mislabeled versions. I'll check next time I have ten minutes free.

Looks like I missed them, then. Mic, if you still have them, I'd appreciate it if you could send them my way, please. :)

Yeah I wonder why they took them down so quickly, I also heard the original link had the FULL source codes then a few hours later they relinked them with less of a code. Now they took them totally down.

Did anybody manage to grab both? Can anyone send them to me? I didn't expect it to be taken down so quickly. :S

Edit: Never mind I've got them. If anyone else missed them and would like a copy just let me know. :)

Too bad about Lucasarts but this is really good news indeed. I'm going to take a look at the code too in the next week. Though I imagine the code will be kinda messy like the Q3 code is.

Fixing some of the saber issues is the biggest problem. Honestly, nobody should take a melee game seriously where in order to remain competitive against others you have to shake your mouse really hard to amplify the damage of your swings. Although we might have grown accustomed to that, it's the silliest and most broken thing imaginable.

With games like q3 the exploits (i.e. strafe jumping) significantly improve the gameplay and require a lot of skill to pull off. But the stuff we're stuck with is just horrible.
I would like to see the saber issues being worked on. It is hard to tell how much steam there will be behind this, but it is something the JKA community should have had a long time ago!

Various other communities will have already or be in the process of putting the code up and coming up with ideas of what to do with it. Might be nice for us to do that as well.

I'm sure there will be a number of community projects that will come up with interesting ideas. I had heard of one that would fix some of the saber issues, retain the force powers, scrap the star wars theme and go down the esports route. now that sounds fun. :3

I'm really excited to see what people come up with, and what becomes popular. I just hope we don't all wind up with a jacked up version of JA+. *violently vomits on everyone omg*

It might or might not be end up going anywhere, but I setup a google code project for it anyway: http://code.google.com/p/jediknight4/

I don't have time to do much at the moment, but if anyone wants to be added to it to do whatever, let me know.

I'm wondering the same, but I'm heavily leaning towards the 'no' side of things. A pseudo jk4 would have to be accepted by pretty much everyone else as the way to go; unlike with mods, a pseudo jk4 will probably affect the gameplay even more than what we have so far. This could be good of course, but the issue is spreading it enough and getting a large enough of a player base to have anything serious going on, i.e. like us teaching how to play it or leagues for competitive play etc.

EDIT: But I'm not trying to be pessimistic here. This whole thing is nice and I'm looking forward to seeing what people will cook up.

A fan made JK could also have a custom engine installed with new rendering, however i think that might change gameplay dramatically.

Definitely excited about this. I'll be giving them a read later on, probably.
