About This File
Jedi Academy Multiplayer (and a few other Q3 engine games) don’t run on Mac Lion/Mountain Lion because of some OpenGL issues on ATI graphics cards.
JKJALaunch is a launcher for Jedi Academy Multiplayer that forces ATI FSAA off, allowing the game to run on Lion and Mountain Lion (but unfortunately not on Mavericks). It also allows you to specify command-line options and force 32-bit colour (as needed on certain graphics cards).
Hold Shift down at launch to bring up the options window, where you can choose the location of Jedi Academy Multiplayer and set the command-line options.
When you’re asked to find Jedi Academy MP, you can also select Jedi Academy, Jedi Knight II, Jedi Knight II MP and Wolfenstein ET.
The launcher works with the 1.0.1e for disc version multiplayer patch, digital download and Jedi Knight Gold edition (but not on Mavericks) for Mac.
New in 1.2!
The latest Steam and Mac App Store versions of Jedi Academy (Multiplayer) have a problem with connecting to servers which you do not have all .pk3s for. JKJALaunch now supports launching them (including on Mavericks) and fixes this. Only the Steam version supports command-line options.
If you bring up the options window by holding shift down at launch, you can check for updates by doing JKJALaunch->Check for updates… in the menu.
New in 1.3!
Custom master server support for Steam and Mac App Store versions of Jedi Academy (Multiplayer).
