Hello there!
 
 
If you were ever interested to give a try to the game Online I am in the pleasant position to say that it is still active, alive and well!
 
 
This guide aims to setup Multiplayer, including basic understanding along with keybinds and our modded client for Modern PCs!
 
 

Client Setup

In this area I will cover how to check and setup the game client we use – {JoF}EternalJK !
 
 
~ Client ~
 
 
Step 1: Make sure you can launch Multiplayer
 
 
First and foremost you’d like to see if Multiplayer can be launched from the get-go. This can be done by going to your Game Library, select Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy and click on Multiplayer. If that works fine already we can move on!

Step 2: Downloading & Installing {JoF}EternalJK Client
 
 
{JoF} is the biggest community in Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy with ~ 200 active members ingame & on our Forums. We have also contributed to the client EternalJK – an improvement to the old game with quality of life changes and optimizations for Modern PCs.
 
 
To get started you have to download it from here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1KZRaLaV9FSuQWdwQ1AYvVcCkpCnD7R3j/view – [google.com] 
 
 
Navigate where your game is installed, go to GameData folder and paste all those files there. Don’t worry, the client is optimized for Steam to recognize it whenever you’re playing on Multiplayer! It only has support for Multiplayer. You can also launch the game using eternaljk.x86.exe

Step 3: Join {JoF}Public Server
 
 
You are now playing on the most up to date game client and you’re able to see way more servers and you have access to more settings than the base game client.
 
 
To join {JoF}Public Server you have to open the console by pressing the combination of Shift ~ (Tilde, under ESC key/next to !/above TAB) or just ~ and type any of the following commands:
 
 
/Connect JoF.JK3.in – [JK3.in] 
 
/Connect JoF.JKA.io
 
/Connect Public.JoFHub.EU

Multiplayer Setup

This area will cover basic knowledge how to setup your Multiplayer once you have installed {JoF}EternalJK game client.
 
 
Once you are ingame you can begin setting up.
 
 
Optimization settings: For this part you have to open the console again ingame as previously mentioned (Shift + ~ or just ~) and type these commands one by one:
 
 
/rate 25000
 
/snaps 40
 
/cl_maxpackets 125
 
/com_maxfps 125
 
/r_flares 0
 
 
These will boost your FPS and make the game smooth like butter, you would only need to cap FPS to 125 as it is the best for dueling, no need to go for more.
 
 
Our server is playing on a serverside mod called JA+ (Jedi Academy+) that offers a lot of improvements along with quality of life ones.
 
 
One of the essential things is setting up keybindings:
 
 
Grapple: It is a skillshot that you can shoot and moves you as long as you hold it, think of web swinging like Spider-Man, it’s the same thing.
 
 
To set up you have to assign it on any key you’d prefer, example:
 
 
/bind G +grapple
 
 
If you want to bind it on one of your mouse buttons use Mouse4/Mouse5 or what any other buttons you may have there.
 
 
You can assign other commands such as emotes or messages at the press of buttons.
 
 
To access emotes ingame, open the console and do /aminfo – this will show you a big list of commands:

To assign it do: /bind key emote
 
 
In order to send a message at the press of a button do: /bind key say message ; example /bind – say GG
 
 
To be able to chat with other players you have to press Y (which is default) and then start interacting! You can also send a private message by aiming at a player and pressing U (default) or use the console and type /tell player/id (ID can be found by doing /showplayerid command in console).
