Apparently I don't have permission to use the link provided.

Apologies for this, the download link for FM3RE v1.00 at JKHub will be re-established shortly.


I was considering updating the information on the download page for the mod (to reflect my clan's transition from PHRG to VHRG) and while I did end up deciding against the change, I had made the mistake in saving changes.


Which means that the download link for FM3RE is pending re-approval from an admin at JKHub.


I apologize again for the inconvenience here, the problem should be fixed shortly.


In the mean time you can still download FM3RE v1.00 here:




I hope you still have the patience to download the module, I'm sure you would enjoy it  :winkthumb:


May the force be with you,

Thank you for clearing that up, I managed to find a link on your site but no server was active.

No problem at all!


Sorry you were unable to find a server. While my clan (VHRG) does run a server part-time, which is fun because it makes it easier for us to play a few matches with each other now and then, we also have the downside of it only being up part-time.


Hopefully FM3's popularity rises a bit and people start putting up their own servers but who knows at this point. The game is getting kind of old now haha  :lol:


I'm putting more effort into creating challenging bots for players to face off against in the case of there being no servers up, which I understand is sort of like a band-aid on the problem but it's really all I can do from a developer's standpoint.


Hopefully people enjoy the mod enough to throw up their servers again, gotta keep positive I suppose  :winkthumb:


Anyways I hope your enjoying FM3RE and I'll check into why the mod is still pending re-approval  :huh:


May the force be with you,

I said before that FM3RE was planned for release by 1/11, but I still need a bit more time I think.


So, unfortunately I'm going to delay release until the 14th.


The extra time will help a bunch, I hope everyone enjoys v1.00 until then  :sun:


May the force be with you all,

You can still download v1.01 before its approval here however, here is a link to the page where you can attain FM3RE v1.01:

If anyone has had the chance to try out FM3RE v1.01 yet, please leave a review and/or star rating on the download page here: https://jkhub.org/files/file/2554-forcemod-iii-return-of-the-emperor/ 


I would love to read your comments and suggestions, just please be honest haha  :D 


I'm thinking that for a v1.02 release I'll be adding about 12 bots to round it up to 75 (same number that was offered in Av3).

So far, I have added 2 Sentinel bots and 3 Crypt Guardians, I think that everyone will be happy with my choices (Darth Bane is one of them).

So that leaves us with 7 open bot slots. I'm thinking of adding Royal Guard back in as a bot choice (4 bots) and Gungans (2 bots). 

I figure that somebody out there would like to slay 15 Jar Jars haha

If these selections are alright with everyone then that would still leave me with one open bot slot to make it an even 75.

I'm sure I could think of something  :sun:

If anyone has any suggestions for bots (for any class) or any other modifications/additions please let me know.

Everything is fair game for the v1.02 release, lets make this our best yet my friends.

May the force be with you all,

Just out of curiosity, why was the JKHub link for 1.01 removed?

Hi Commander Awesome, glad to hear from you again! Apologies for not replying back to your comment sooner.


The link for v1.01 was removed from JKHub primarily because of concerns regarding permissions.


Though I do my best to give full credit for all files used, there is much more that goes into it than just that. Especially considering that I am bringing together so many modules for FM3RE.


To sum it up, it was basically removed because of policy and though this may seem like bad news, and perhaps it is, I hold no ill will against JKHub. It is the staff's job to make sure that every file that gets approved meets policy, and unfortunately I just don't have the time or energy to go through the entire permissions process considering the large number of developer content used.


I could definitely elaborate further on what exactly happened, but I'm about to put up a post advertising FM3RE v1.02 where I will go into more detail regarding what happened there.


The good news is that FM3RE, as is such with all FM3 modules developed by the VHRG Empire, will continue to be available for download, for free, on my website to be enjoyed by the community.


We should definitely keep in touch and stay tuned for that upcoming post!


May the force be with you,
