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:

      This is a mod pack containing fixes to draw distance, car names, car camera, music cut and weapon names. I did this because most of the Dropbox links that had those mods on have expired and those that haven't expired yet may expire, so I decided to archive them in one big package.

      This is a patcher for Yakuza 7 (Like a Dragon) that removes the letterboxing at non 16:9 resolutions.

      It is made using quickBMS to extract UI resource files and replace the letterboxing textures. 
      To install:
      1. Extract the contents of the zip to "steamapps\common\Yakuza Like a Dragon\runtime\media\data" 2. Run "letterbox_patch_efigs.bat" 3. A backup of the original files will be placed within a folder marked "backup". Known Issues:
      Due to the nature of how the game was made, you will see outside of the 16:9 window. You may see visual glitches and so on that would have been hidden otherwise. New patches for the game may break this. If it does, delete the backup folder and run the patcher again. Credits/Sources:
      QuickBMS (https://aluigi.altervista.org/quickbms.htm) for the unpacker/repacker. parc.bms (https://aluigi.altervista.org/bms/parc.bms) for the quickbms script. Kiwami 2 Letterbox Mod (https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1736864221) for pointing me in the right direction. Thanks to KingKrouch and Rose on the WSGF Discord for advice and testing.

      Only use this file with miHoYo game titles! (Honkai Impact 3, Genshin Impact)
      This file is basically deny UniFairy.sys to create itself in system32 and redirect it to game folder instead and to reduce conflict between multiple versions (and multiple servers / clients).
      Must run the script as admin to work due to require access to system32.
      The reason why this script exist is to prevent the anti-cheat to create itself in system32 (and once it was copied there, it will not get removed along with the game unless you manually go there and delete it)

      option 1: Enable UniFairy.sys denial
      The progress will be: deleting existing UniFairy.sys and create an empty decoy file > deny all permissions to the empty decoy file This will deny the game from creating UniFairy.sys in system32 and tell them to put it in game folder instead without tampering the anti-cheat. option 2: Disable UniFairy.sys denial
      This option is basically revert the option 1 and also delete UniFairy.sys so the game can create the new anti-cheat in system32 Can be also used to remove UniFairy.sys without any knowledge or just remove unwanted file.

      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.

      Music Wrapper
      v1.2
      for Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II and Mysteries of the Sith (1997-98) by LucasArts
       
      This package bundles the best wrappers and known fixes to help get music working in both games.
      For reference, both games used CD Audio for their music tracks. The modern, CD-less solution, used by resellers like GOG and Steam, is to rip the tracks to .ogg files and then supply a wrapper (a special .dll file) to translate the game's calls to play the CD tracks into calls to play the .ogg files from the hard drive, instead. Unfortunately, with newer builds of Windows that haven't been tested with the games' installed compatibility settings, that wrapper can stop working and the result is a loss of music.
      This is primarily for the GOG and Steam releases of these games, since its their compatibility settings that interfere with the wrapper. You can, however, also use these instructions to get music working from the hard drive in the retail release.
       
      Install:
      Copy the five .dll files to your game folder, overwriting any that are already there.
      If you still don't have music, perform the following steps, preferably checking music after each one:
      * Verify that you have a subfolder named Music with track files named Track12[-32].ogg (JK) or Track02[-14].ogg (MotS).
      If you don't (or you'd like higher quality versions): * For JK, follow the directions at https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Star_Wars:_Jedi_Knight_%E2%80%93_Dark_Forces_II#Higher_quality_music * For MotS, follow the directions at https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Star_Wars:_Jedi_Knight_%E2%80%93_Mysteries_of_the_Sith#Higher_quality_music * Rename JK.exe (JK) or JKM.exe (MotS) to something else (ex. JediKnight.exe). This will disassociate the executable from installed compatibility settings that can interfere with music playback.
      * Double-click on the provided .reg file. This will remove the compatibility settings from the registry.
      * Delete/rename winmm.dll and rename winmm_alternate.dll to winmm.dll. See below for the differences between the two version.
       
      Wrappers:
      * Winmm.dll is Tarvis' fixed wrapper for Windows 10, dated Oct 25, 2015. Credit belongs to Tarvis.
      His changelog: -Game not starting on Windows 10 -Each level plays a track further than it should have -Music playlist would not restart unless player stands still a few seconds/ enters then leaves esc menu -Music volume would not change -Music took about half a second to stop when going back to main menu/starting a cutscene   Source: https://www.gog.com/forum/star_wars_dark_forces_series/jk_updated_cd_music_player_dll_fix_volume_looping_etc/page1   * Winmm_alternate.dll is GOG's wrapper, dated July 15, 2015. Credit belongs to GOG.
      Unlike Tarvis' version, this one works with the German language pack (and, maybe, other non-English versions of the game or mods). It's possible that it's generally more compatible than Tarvis' version, but doesn't have most of the fixes. One reported issue is that the music stops playing once it's gone through all of the tracks (i.e. it won't loop back to the first track played). For that reason, it's not the default wrapper in this pack, but you may have to live with issues like that if you get no music at all with Tarvis' version.
