StarWars- Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast [PC]
--- Info adapted from Wikipedia.org ---
"StarWars- Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast", often abbreviated JK2 or JO, is a first- and third-person action game developed by "Raven Software" and published by "LucasArts" and "Activision". It was released in 2002.
Powered by the "Quake III: Team Arena" game engine, the game primarily revolves around ranged and melee combat. The player can wield classic Star Wars weapons such as blasters, lightsabers and Force powers.
As a first/third person shooter set in the Star Wars universe, "Jedi Outcast" puts the player into combat wielding a variety of firearms from the universe, as well as lightsabers and Force powers. The player can choose perspective for every weapon, including the lightsaber.
The shooter combat is typical, offering players an array of energy and projectile weapons, as well as explosives. Players have a health and shield meter, each which is replenished separately.
"Jedi Outcast" places a strong emphasis on lightsaber combat. As in the films, lightsabers can be used to deflect shots from blasters. The game offers three lightsaber styles. Each style is different in terms of the speed of attacks and damage dealt. There are a number of combos which can be used, often unique to the selected saber style.
Force powers (such as Push, Jump, and Lightning) are available in singleplayer and multiplayer, but more powers can be used in the latter. The use of powers is restricted by a "Force Meter", which depletes with use of powers. The "level" of a Force power determines the strength of the power and the amount of Force "power" required for its use.
The multiplayer mode divides players into Light Siders and Dark Siders, and will pit these sides against each other in team modes. Each side has access to both shared "Neutral" Force powers, which are mostly focused on increasing speed and manoeuvrability, and some unique Light Side and Dark Side powers. As in the previous games, Light Side powers are mainly focused around protection and healing, while Dark Side powers are openly aggressive. Unlike previous games, however, Kyle does not exclusively select Light or Dark side powers in the single-player, instead receiving a selection of both.
-- INSTRUCTIONS --
Unpack/Extract the downlaoded RAR file. You will get an ISO file which contains the CD of the game, and a Folder with an Update/Patch and a no-CD crack.
Use "IMGburn" or "Nero" to burn the ISO as a CD or Mount it in a Virtual Drive using "DaemonTools" or "PowerISO".
If the installation doesn't start automatically, go to the CD and click on "Detect.exe".
When it's finished, go to the Folder "Update + no-CD crack" that was extracted from the RAR file.
There, double-click on "JKIIUp104 (update-patch).exe" to update the game to the latest version (1.04).
Next, click on "jedi.knight.2.(all.versions)-nocd.exe" to apply the no-CD crack. If it doesn't find the game, copy the file directly in the game's folder and run it there.
To play, there should be a shortcut in your Start-menu or use the "splash-menu" from the CD
[ if you get an error, go to where the game was installed, open the folder "GameData" and click on "jk2sp.exe" to play Single-player... or "jk2mp" for the Multi-player (haven't tried MP yet). This worked for me... ]
