I know I have the right file system.
jediknight - jedi academy > gamedata
in this folder is my base folder and the folders for the mods tha I load through the setup>mod screen.
gamedata > melee_all
in this folder is a save folder, a bunch of screenshots, melee.pk3 and readme.txt
I already changed melee.pk3 to a zip, opened it up and cut up the npc files, which were the first reason it didn't work, into different ones.
ex: cultist_sword1.npc including all variants: cultist_blade1, cultist_blade2, cultist_sai, etc for the 20 or so weapons there are in the game. Anyway the first time I tried to load it I got an error message basically saying "shorten the npc files, they are too long", so I did that, and now it just doesn't work. I realized I had to update my JA, so I did, but now it doesn't work so I updated for no reason, which was something I didn't want to do!
Argh... I wanna play it so badly! It looks NUTZ!
And I'm OUT THIS MUFUGGA!
