Jedi Knight DF2 & MotS Pre-patched Unofficial Patches


About This File

Pre-patched Unofficial Patches

for

Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II & Mysteries of the Sith (1997-98) by LucasArts

 

This is a bundle and re-upload of the "Unofficial Patch" executables for Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II and its expansion, Mysteries of the Sith. The unofficial patches improve compatibility with modern Windows, add team chat in multiplayer and are required for some mods (particularly Jedi Knight Enhanced and Jedi Knight Retexture Pack). Most users choosing to play these games on modern Windows will want to use these.

These are the pre-patched versions, meaning that the original executables have already been patched. The CD checks have also been removed. This makes them compatible with digital releases like those from Steam and GOG, which have already been patched to remove CD checks (and, therefore, would cause the the original unofficial patches to either fail or introduce CD checks).

 

Installation

Simply copy the contents of the appropriate included folder to your game folder, overwriting any files. In other words, copy JK.EXE, JK-Extension.dll and the Resource folder from the "Jedi Knight - Dark Forces II" folder and/or JKM.exe from the "Jedi Knight - Mysteries of the Sith" folder to your game folder(s).

 

Important note

The unofficial patches help these games to launch on modern Windows, but there are a host of other issues that you may encounter once the games are running, especially related to 3D acceleration and music. For most users, those issues can be overcome with further file supplementation and tweaking. The following pages aggregate the best solutions for each game:

      Instructions:
      - Extract the executable that corresponds to the aspect ratio you want to use, to the root game folder, replacing any original files.
      - Select a resolution in the game launcher that matches the aspect ratio you chose from the fix.

      This patch serves to add fixes to Prisoner of War, for now it adds Hor+ support.
      Instructions for setting a custom resolution:
      - Create a shortcut of Colditz.exe
      - Write "-res:x,y" in the shortcut's target field after "Colditz.exe": "-res:x,y" (without the quotes, for example: "Colditz.exe -res:1920,1080".
      More fixes will be added to this file in the future, since the game has a couple issues, like being locked to 32FPS and frequent slowdowns during gameplay, even with dgVoodoo.
