12-29-2004, 12:41 PM
I Posted this on outcast forums but only one person replied, and it didnt help. So I thought since most of you have played outcast ya'll would know how to insert mods into the game. the main menu on Outcst for MP has a setup option but if you go there it has MODs listed but you cant download any. Plz help
I would also like to know how JA is i just bought Outcast and its really kool and ive heard about academy, and ill prolly buy it, but want to know if its any good.

Well, if you do decide to buy JA, you'll be happy to know that you install mods the same way you do for JO. Here's a short list that explains the process:
1. Download the desired file to any directory you want, particularly one that's quick and easy to access (I usually put mine in a special mod folder under "My Documents").
2. Open the file. Most mods are put into a zip file, so you'll need WinZip or a similar program to open them. You can download a trial version of WinZip or buy the full version here (http://www.winzip.com/downwzeval.htm) (just download the trial though, it has everything you need. Just keep selecting "Close" whenever they want you to register, as there's no time limit for how long you want the "trial" period to last ;) ).
3. Once you have opened the file in WinZip, be sure to open the README file that is (or should be) included and follow its instructions. If it's a skin or a character model, you'll most likely extract it to JO/JA's base folder. If it's a full blown mod, you'll want to put it in a new folder under Gamedata. If in doubt though, ALWAYS check the README file.
4. Fire up the game and have at it (NOTE: for mods placed in a new folder under Gamedata, you'll need to activate the mod from the menu by selecting "Mods" and opening the folder you put it under).
I hope that helps. As for whether JA is worth buying, I would suggest checking out this thread (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=141455).

This happens when i try to extract it

Are you trying to extract the mod to the CD? You need to extract the mod to your C drive, or wherever your hard drive is. You should find Jedi Outcast under C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars JK II Jedi Outcast (unless you installed the game in another location)

Hmmmmm, are you trying to access it from Single player or Multiplayer? Depending on what file it is, it may not work on one. Try again with another file and see if the same problem happens. Sometimes downloads don't work quite right, but that almost never happens unless the file's corrupted (I doubt it is).
That's about all I can think of to help. I'm not as knowledgeable as some on the forum. I hope you get things working right.
