Star Wars Jedi Knight II - Jedi Outcast

 

HD level loading screens

------------------------------------------------

by ND (Quiet Bob @ PCGW)

 

This is a set of high-resolution loading screens for Jedi Outcast, for both mission mode and multiplayer levels. My aim was to replace the default set - which is extremely low-resolution - with better visuals, while staying as close to the original as possible.

 

Loading screens in Jedi Outcast are basically screenshots of the levels. I recaptured them in full HD. These images were later rescaled to work in-game. I used high quality conversion in an effort to preserve most detail. The end result are loading screens which are of 16x higher resolution: the default set is only 256x256, mine are 1024x1024.

 

I substituted two of the loading screens. The original ones used for Cairn: Bay and Yavin: Temple are taken from pre-rendered low-res FMVs. Since these can't be captured in high quality, I replaced them with in-engine screenshots from the corresponding levels. I also added a loading screen for Nar Shaddaa: Streets.

Just place the file Jedi_Outcast_HD_loading_screens.pk3 in your GameData\base\ directory. Enjoy!

    • By Jumbo Jenkins
      This is a collection of the most important and useful fixes for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed on Steam in one centralised, and easy to download file. The collection contains:
      40, 50, 60 and Unlimited FPS executable files originally created by PCGamingwiki Moderator "Garrett" that can replace the game's original .exe file to play at the desired framerate. Config files for playing in 1440p and 4K with Cloth Simulation enabled which can simply be dragged into the user's "Appdata" directory. Replacement "LevelPack" contents to fix missing sounds for levels near the end of the game, originally created by Steam user "Sweetz". A READ ME.txt file with easy to follow installation instructions. Thanks to the original contributors for making this game playable for so many people over the years - have fun! 😄

      These are both demos for Star Wars: Jedi Knight - Mysteries of the Sith. The installers for the demos are 16-bit only, so I have taken the liberty of repackaging them as a .zip archive instead. 
      MotSDemo contains the regular demo containing the first level, and Sith_PCG is a demo containing the second level, which came exclusively in a PC Gamer magazine demo disc. Note that the PC Gamer demo has a disc check; to play it you will need to mount MotS.iso, which is a trimmed down version of the original demo disc that can be found in the same directory as the executable. This can be done natively in Windows 10, 8.1, and 8; Windows 7 and earlier users will need a mounting software such as WinCDEmu.
      Enhancements.zip contains the higher quality sound effects and necessary High Detail Mod files (reorganized to work with the demo). Unfortunately, Mysteries of the Sith is pickier with redbook audio than Dark Forces II, so I was unable to add the proper background music.
