Star Wars Jedi Outcast Jedi Knight 2 (2002): http://sourceforge.n...ts/jedioutcast/ (10.8mb .zip)

Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy (2003): http://sourceforge.n...ts/jediacademy/ (12.1mb .zip)

Following The Walt Disney Company decision to close LucasArts on April 3rd, 2013 the developers at Raven Software released the source code for the game on Sourceforge under GNU GPLv2 licensing. I presume this has something to do with LucasArts being shutdown and the rights to star wars being licenced instead of them making their own games.

Eh, not that big a deal I think sadly. I mean, there are a billion mods for these games already, not much else anyone can do with source code at this point, not to mention they are on the Quake 3 engine already so, I dunno.

I guess linux ports soon though? Maybe Mac? If they aren't already on those two platforms that is.

Raven Software... thought that name sounded familiar. They're on my blacklist still from that abomination they called a Wolfenstein game...

These games are already available for osx, they are both on steam for $9.99 each. But there is no official support for win7 or win8, don't think it works on win8, many people having trouble with win7. I'm sure people will edit the sourcecode so that it works on win7 and win8 properly, maybe create a linux port too.

Jedi Knight II was such an awesome game, it was so much more than just a shooter, I think to this day the best SW game I've ever seen. Jedi Academy slightly less so, but I remember having so much fun playing them.

JK2 had a Linux release, I remember seeing it on the shelves at EB on release day when I bought it. I dunno about JKA.

I had SO much fun with the saber battles in Academy, which is why I keep it installed these days. It's still so awesome to dual saber someone in the torso, or back stab someone. Seriously, how come they couldn't have made a good Star Wars game really since those games came out? (Battlefront 1 and 2 are good imo though, so don't hate me)
