The Jedi Academy Texture Overhaul Full

About This File

This Mod aims to replace nearly all in-game textures (which are quite low res compared to the textures in games nowadays) with improved hi-rez textures faithful to the original style of the game and/or with custom textures all of 2 times (some even 8! times) the original size. It is perfectly safe and very easy to install or uninstall from your system because it will not alter the files in your installation folder directly.

More detailed instructions will be included in the release(s).

 

This newest download is a huge new Pack, combining all former packs aswell as two new levels, Vjun and the "Mercenary" level on Tatooine. For more information click check out the Changelog below.

 

To install extract the downloaded file to the directory gamedata/base/ in your Jedi Academy directory.

Why you no help??

I do not have the resources to test my mod on different systems apart from my gaming rig, so if someone would kindly help and post his system specs and the framerate or general performance when using my mod i can provide minimum spec info for other players. Now I don't think you need a strong pc for this to work fluently, but your graphics card should probably have 128 megs of ram. but this is just an assumption!

If there is someone who has experience with the id tech 3 engine and its modelling tools and would like to help and take this mod on a new level - please contact me, i'm quite positive on improving the models and meshes too which would then be a total cosmetic overhaul mod improving all graphics throughout the game.

Nice man, I hope to see more of this in the future. The texture resolutions are one of the big graphical downfalls for JA, in my opinion.

True that!

Why don't we make a Version of your high quality level shots with my mod, for those who use it? That would be one step closer to a "JKA Graphics Overhaul" Mod ;)

I must say I liked this a lot, however the floor texture on the main areas on mp/ffa3 is really terrible in my opinion... at least for a replacement. Looks very much out of place :P

Ok... I'll look into that. the Multiplayer maps are not the ones I focus on though, so changes to textures of the Single Player mode (a lot of textures are re-used in MP mode sometimes for different stuff!!) will result in unintended changes to MP maps which may sometimes look out of place. I'll try to find compromises with those texture so thex look good in both game modes but that may not always be possible...

I don't think it makes much sense how the tatooine sand texture was turned into a rock texture, but otherwise I like this.

I kind of need help. I put the file on my base and it didn't work.

Did you reload the game?

Having this mod unfortunately makes surface sprites (grass etc) not render for me as fluidly as they do in basejka for some reason.

eh I'll JKA will be reworked sooner or later. Until then, this mod is not half too bad for a pseudo substitute.
