About This File
Thank you for your feedback! Please view the change log for a list of updates. As always if you encounter any issues, do let me know!
About the mod:
Please unzip the NewBeginning.zip folder and extract the contents to your Gamedata folder. Once installed, you may use the included "newbeginning.bat" file to load the mod for you, or you can load it yourself from the usual setup -> mod screen in single player. These instructions should apply to a disc and Steam installation (as I've used both!)
This is a single player mod set one year after the original game (Light Side ending.) You will play as a new character over two levels (discounting cinematic maps.) The first level takes place in the Jedi Academy and the second takes place at one of the many training grounds. I strongly encourage you to explore the first level as there're a fair few secrets and Easter Eggs to be found! It was designed with the original Jedi Outcast level in mind, which means you could end it very, very quickly if you wanted to bypass the fun of exploration and move onto the trial level.
The trial is the same one that was originally released here on JKHub with minor edits. I wanted to place emphasis on the Yavin Temple in order to receive feedback while I work on a brand new trial level and the first mission beyond the Jedi Academy.
If you encounter any bugs- Oh, God. Please, please don't tell me you've encountered any bugs. ;_; My head might implode!
Special thanks to Circa for play testing at various stages of development! Additional thanks to everyone over in this thread for providing so much help (still).
Problems with the .bat?
A Windows 8 tester did seem to be having a problem loading the mod with the .bat provided. They overcame this by creating a shortcut to their jasp.exe. (Right-click, copy, paste shortcut)
Open the shortcut's "properties" and then move to the "shortcut" tab. Then, add the following (after a space) onto the "Target:" field: "+set sv_pure 0 +set fs_game newbeginning"
"C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy\GameData\jasp.exe" +set sv_pure 0 +set fs_game newbeginning"
I hope this helps!
