Welcome to JKHub

This community is dedicated to the games Star Wars: Jedi Outcast (2002) and Jedi Academy (2003). We host over 3,000 mods created by passionate fans around the world, and thousands of threads of people showcasing their works in progress and asking for assistance. From mods to art to troubleshooting help, we probably have it. If we don't, request or contribute!

Get started

This game turned 20 years old this year, and it is still one of the greatest Star Wars games of all time. If you're new or returning from a long hiatus, here are the basics of getting started with Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy in 2023.

Donate to JKHub

We could use a little help

Yep, it's that time of year again. The time when we beg politely ask for donations. As of today, JKHub has been going strong for over two years. Every day, hundreds of people visit a website we host. JKHub has almost 63,000 posts and 1,494 members registered, and counting.


Additionally, we provide downloads for 1,845 mods, some of which over a GB in size. Also, 200,000+ files have been downloaded from our files section.


Those are some great numbers, and we'd love to see them continue to increase and provide a great service and community center for everyone. Unfortunately, that costs money.


How JKHub makes money

Like many online communities, we rely solely on users' donations. We currently do not have any paid ads on our website, and are not supported by any companies or investors besides our users. For this reason, we ask for donations once every year, in the fourth quarter. We'd like to continue being ad-free.


It may be worth noting that no money that is donated is used by any of our staff members in any way other than paying for the below facets of the site. JKHub staff are unpaid volunteers that maintain JKHub in our free time. We try to be as transparent as we can about donations, so if you have any questions, please do feel free to ask.


What we need money for

Here is a full breakdown of all the money JKHub will need to make it through 2015, and the end of this year:


Webhosting is what we need in order to be able to make our site available to you. These costs go towards the company JKHub uses to host our website, and to make sure JKHub and sites using its hosting are secure and fast.


File hosting is the third-party service we use to serve mod downloads that would otherwise to be too large (and too many) for our infrastructure to handle.


Software licenses are what we need to pay to keep improvements to our site coming, such as the ones posted in this article. They'll allow us to keep our site as modern, user-friendly and secure as possible.


Addons are extensions to the software we use, made by third-party developers. This was skipped last year due to a lack of funds. It would be really nice to get these updated. This includes the Tutorials section of JKHub, which is in desperate need of a patch.


Domains are things like "jkhub.org".




The total money needed

In total, we need $380.

We have received $381.89 worth of donations so far.




What happens if we don't get $380

Truth is, we need about $200 to just keep the webhosting up. If we don't reach our goal, things will slowly begin to stop functioning and being offered.


In practice, we'll certainly do everything in our power to keep JKHub running smoothly no matter how much money we get, however, we may have to decide to start placing potentially intrusive paid ads on our site to be able to accomplish that, for example.


So, in conclusion, please donate.

The link below will take you to a PayPal donation page where you can send us an amount of your choosing. We welcome any amount. Alternatively, you can visit our donation FAQ page, which is also where you can donate. Again, we try to handle donations as transparently as possible, so if you have any further questions, please post below.





We have reached our goal! Thanks to all who donated!

I literally don't have any money. If I did I'd donate, even if it was only...5 dollars, that's something.

Give five dollars then. Anything we can do counts. The fact we have such a wonderful website, tutorials...*Shudders* Go to filefront, decide if you want this site to be worse, then donate money. Good motivator. We have a add free site, no popups, DDOS protection, solid file scanning, a free volunteer team that does a job most people would have to be paid for, free webhosting that is premium and of high quality, free short redirects for your servers, tutorials, and so, so many things. You cannot find any other community or group of people trying to do all of this, and for nothing in return. These guys are honestly really dedicated, hard working, and good people.



Also, think of File-Front being 5x more broken. Then come here and imagine it. Then stop. Then remember the Donate button. It fixes nightmares. It fixes all nightmares. Except nightmares related to trying to the original Silent Hill, and trying to modify it...And failing. Oh God, never again. Ever. Thats next week.

If 38 members donated $10, this would be done. :)


When's the deadline? I can donate $20, but won't be for a few weeks.

Technically no deadline. You can donate whenever you like throughout the year, not only during this period. But the sooner the better. :) We have a couple payments in the remainder of this year, and then a few throughout next year until next October.

I propose contests. Or stuff. Win JKA money. I don't know. Something legal :P. Like a lemonade stan-Wait, thats illegal. Pretty limited I suppose.

Getting there folks! I knew you wouldn't let JKHub down (and neither will I, next year I might be able to donate, MIGHT hopefully)

Bump. More important than the web-hosting downtime.




Heading back to Texas tomorrow, will be trying to fix my CC so I can donate.

Up for this...


I'm curious if you have to pay a fee to accept donations. Some crazy part of me keeps wanting to send a couple of cents everyday. :lol:

Yes, PayPal takes a small percentage of donations. Around 3% or something tiny like that. It sucks, but any other donation service either costs money to use or has a similar fee, that I know of.
