About This File

Barrghbossa's Lightsaber/Melee Sound Mod


AUTHOR: Barrghbossa


Video Demonstration: 


Description: A Sound Mod for Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy. Replaces the melee sound effects with ones from Indiana Jones and Star Wars movies. All of the melee/saber sounds were ripped from the uncompressed surround sound tracks for the movies (or the Dolby Stereo tracks for the Return of the Jedi sounds) and re-edited to fit about the same audio length as each original file. All in all, it sounds like a mix of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens in heated combat.


Install: Drag and drop the "PJ_JK_SFX_v1.pk3" folder, located in the .zip folder alongside this readme file, into Jedi Outcast or Jedi Academy's "base" folder located in "\Steam\steamapps\common\jedi outcast/academy\GameData\base"




VERSION 1.0 (Initial Release)

  • Works in both JK2 & JK3
  • .zip file including a "README" file, and the "PJ_JK_SFX_v1.zip" folder containing the "PJ_JK_SFX_v1.pk3" folder.
  • "PJ_JK_SFX_v1.pk3" includes a "sound" folder which contains the folders "weapons".
  • The "weapons" folder contains the folders "melee" and "saber".
  • The "melee" folder includes the new punch and kick sound effects (from various Indiana Jones and Star Wars movies).
  • The "saber" folder includes the new sound effects for the lightsabers in game.
  • The main saber blocking sound effects are from a bonus feature video of Luke Skywalker fighting Darth Vader on the second Death Star without the musical score.
  • Two of the saber deflection blocking sounds are from Episode 7 while one is from Episode 6.
  • The Fast Style lightsaber offense sounds are from Count Dooku's lightsaber in Episode 2, the Medium Style sounds are Obi-Wan's lightsaber from Episode 1, and the Strong Style sounds are a combination of Episode 7 and 3 (though the Strong Style back-swing sounds are the Fast Style Episode 2 sounds).
  • The lightsaber on/off sound is from Episode 3. The dark jedi on/off is also from Episode 3. The saber quick off/on is Luke's Episode 6 lightsaber.
  • The saber spin sound effects are all different intensities of Darth Maul's sith lightsaber from Episode 1.

This actually sounds decent, however, soundonquick and soundoffquick sound a little odd, could you fix that? 

I'm working on another version of those sounds, it just takes time to find/create one that fits properly.  It'll be in a later version, keep an eye out for it.

Could you make one with the sound effects from Revenge of the Sith. Mainly the duel between Obi-wan and Anakin as they move toward the entrance to the command center on Mustafar.

That one Luke Skywalker saberoff sound, I have been hoping someone would get that from the Luke vs Vader duel in EP6 for A LONG TIME. Yet the one that was always used in mods until now was the one at the end of the duel. This one in particular is during the duel, before Vader goes "Obi-Wan has taught you well." when Luke deactivates his saber upon realizing he was treading dangerous territory. I cannot thank you enough for that sound, cause it sounds so powerful.
