About This File
This is a Single Player mod and it doesn't affect MP. The core idea was to modernize original game without changing anything in its gameplay mechanics or balance. The story was carefully extended, but it's still the same. Hope you like it.
First part of the mod is widescreen UI fix. It removes stretching on widescreen displays for most of menus and in-game HUD. Also, camera placement is some cutscenes was modified.
Some minor menus aren't affected. Also, I couldn't fix sniper aim.
The second part of the mod is content expansion. It includes:
* 6 new cutscenes between missions (2 in Tier-1, 3 in Tier-2, 1 in Tier-3), all are voiced by original actor voices generated with AI voice service (elevenlabs.io).
* dark ending cutscene is slightly modified.
* new mission added in Tier 2. You need to finish all five default missions in tier 2 to play this level. The mission implements some prominent level design ideas from 1990s (not that bad though, after I added hints)
Copy mod files to your game's "Base" folder (for Steam version: steamapps/common/Jedi Academy/GameData/Base)
* modace_gui.pk3 - contains widescreen UI fix and can be used independently with vanilla game
* modace_main.pk3 - requires caexan_gui.pk3 and OpenJK with pull request #1139 (https://github.com/JACoders/OpenJK/pull/1139).
New level needs OpenJK to read and write cvar variables. Old OpenJK releases before pull request #1139 have critical bug, and the game crashes at the beginning of the new mission. So please make sure you use the latest version of OpenJK (May 1, 2023 or later).
Note: the mod overrides some default game files, like MENUS.str. If you have other installed mods also overriding these files, they may interfere each other.
