JK2 Multi Version

Post by Wonko the Sane on Thu Jun 30, 2016 3:03 am

I've added this site to our downloads list, but it deserves its own topic for visibility.  Some folks you probably recognize (ouned, Daggolin, fau) have been maintaining this ever since the full JK2 source code was released.  

JK2MV (Multi Version) is a modification for Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. It supports all three game versions and comes with various features and optimizations (most listed below).
JK2s small playerbase has long been split into fractions among the three versions 1.02, 1,03 and 1.04.

JK2MV's goal is to reunite the small communities into one.

Main Features:

  • Supports 1.02, 1.03 & 1.04 in a single executable
  • Supports most mods made for JK2 (maps, skins, (code)mods etc.)
  • Fast ingame HTTP-Downloads with a dialogue asking you for permission before downloading files to your computer
  • Multiplatform: Windows, Linux, MacOSX
  • Multiarchitecture: 32 and 64 bit support on all platforms
  • Dynamic glow: Better looking lightsabers with the dynamic glow feature from JKA
  • EAX/OpenAL sound fixed
  • Support for modern screen resolutions
  • Fixes for all known security bugs
  • Minimizer: Press the Windows key / Command key in fullscreen mode to minimize
  • Improved gamma correction
  • Tons of other fixes and improvements in the engine, see the changelog for detailed information
  • Opensource​ (GPLv2)

JK2MV is fully compatible with "normal" JK2 versions. Using the JK2MV client let's you join all servers from  1.02, 1.03 and 1.04. When you host a server through JK2MV, you can select what version you're hosting by setting the mv_serverversion cvar to either "1.02", "1.03" or "1.04". Clients of the choosen version can join the server without having the JK2MV client installed. JK2MV clients automatically detect the server's version when connecting.


Install instructions:

  1. Install JK2 either from CD or from Steam and run the multiplayer at least once.
  2. If JK2 is installed from CD, get the 1.04 patch and install it (the Steam version is already patched).
  3. Install JK2MV.
