If you'd like to watch a video to help you along, this one covers OpenJK but the process should be the same with EternalJK.
Why are there no servers on Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy? The server list is empty.
If you just launched the game on Steam or GOG or wherever else you bought this game, chances are you went to find a server to join but the server list is empty. Don't worry, there are still plenty of servers to play on! This blank list just means that the official master server that all other servers ping to is currently down. Luckily, the community has come together to help keep the multiplayer alive by hosting their own master server and running a game client that can show it by default.
A new game client: EternalJK
Ever since the game's source code released back in 2013, a project called OpenJK began to fix some bugs and improve compatibility with modern systems. From that project spawned many other projects to take many steps further to improve the Jedi Academy experience. The best one to use for playing multiplayer is called EternalJK. It includes many nice features, but the most important one in this case is it will show servers that ping to the community master servers.
