About This File

This mod was released in five parts between 2005 and 2009 by Larry McBruce.
Now, in 2022, I combined all chapters into one, so you can play all mods about Nina as a one story.


Installation instructions:
Place “Nina_Anthology” folder and "Nina_Anthology.bat" file from this archive into your Jedi Academy "GameData" folder.
Run mod by double-clicking "Nina_Anthology.bat" file

**Optional**
Remove "Nina_ForceProgression.pk3" file from "Nina_Anthology" folder if you don’t want to play with manually upgradable force powers.
Remove "Nina_NewModels.pk3" and "Nina_NewReborns.pk3" files from "Nina_Anthology" folder if you want to play mod with original models.
Or just remove "Nina_NewReborns.pk3" file from "Nina_Anthology" folder to use original models for reborn characters and new models for
everybody else.Remove "Nina_E11BlueShot.pk3" file from "Nina_Anthology" folder if you want tokeep E11 rifle’s red blaster bolt 
from the original game.

Play the mod and have fun!


Blue E11 blaster bolt

In the original mods, starting from chapter 3, Larry decided to make the E11 blaster bolt blue. You can either keep it or,
if you want, you can delete "Nina_E11BlueShot.pk3" file to retain the original blaster bolt.


There were also some little additions I made for the original mods:

New Voice-over
First of all in original mods chapters 1,2,5 weren’t voiced.
I generated voice-over for that chapters using Ivona reader.
It’s not always good and of course generated voice is way worse than real human speech.
But i guess its better than having no voice-over at all.
If you think otherwise, you can just mute the voice channel in the setting of the game during those chapters.

Force progression:
In original mods, force powers of the player was set to a specific level for each map.
In this mod anthology, I added more RPG style progression for force powers. 
After every level player can choose force power to develop. Similar to the way it was done in original Jedi academy game.
Also i changed script for the holocrons that player can find closer to the end of the game.
In original mod, those holocrons were upgrading heal and grip force power to 3rd level.
But in this anthology, player might have 3rd level grip and heal at the moment the holocrons are found.
So in this anthology one holocron upgrades all dark force powers to 3rd level, and the other all light.
However if you don’t like this force manual upgrading, you can go back to the way it was designed in the original mods.
Just delete "Nina_ForceProgression.pk3" file from mod folder.

Player’s customization:
I added player customization. You can choose some jedi_tf, jedi_hf and jedi_zf reskinned costumes for your player.And also some textures from
"Jedi Zora v3" by Me0is0Jade was used for additional costumes for player.


Model replacement:
I replaced some old models from Jedi Academy  with newer and better versions created by various modders. 
I also created some reskins for Larry’s NPCs. Previously, they were mostly reskins from the original game.
To see the changes look on the screenshots, in this archive.
If you want to play mod with original models, just remove "Nina_NewModels.pk3" and "Nina_NewReborns.pk3" from mod folder.

Known bugs:
  • Sometimes player gain unintentional additional lightsaber fighting styles after finishing a level.
  • If you play with "force progression" feature, and chose a map or chapter from main menu,
    instead of playing chronologically then your player would not have starting light or dark force powers.
  • You can still upgrade force powers after a level.

I played through the Nina Mods about 2 years ago, it was fun, and this looks like a great remaster, I love the new models! I always love seeing old mods get updated 🙂 I look forward to playing through this mod again now✌️

If you're planning to rework the voices, I recommend xVASynth. You can find it on Steam, but you have to download the voice models from Nexus Mods. And once you get the hang out of the software, you'll get much better results. In fact, the voices are really convincing.

Thanks for the feedback everyone.
Unfortunately for now i don't have much free time for creating new voice over. I feel like i did all I could at the moment, and i satisfied with the result, more or less.
Ofcource if somebody recorder and integrate new better voiceover. That would be great. But for now, it wouldnt be me.
