Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast (Single Player Linux Port).

The current state is playable without any major problems.
- loading/saving and a lot of other open issues are fixed

I only had time to test the first two levels, but everything looks fine.


I used Code:Blocks as starting point for this port.
The whole compile process is based on it, but I think it should be pretty easy to add Makefiles or other compiling structures.
The source code is compiled with GCC.

My development system: Ubuntu 12.10 64bit
- I'm using a 64bit system, but this port is still a 32 bit program!

Known Issues:

- multi-monitor handling is still experimental
- some font rendering issues with the Intel Mesa driver (on my test machine)
- input handling in window mode is not perfect

Widescreen Feature:

This is the only thing I changed from the original code to improve the gaming experience.
- added some tweaks for widescreen support (show more content left and right instead of cutting content from top and bottom)
- if you want to play in your native monitor resolution you have to choose the following option "2048x1536". I change this to the current resolution of the main monitor during OpenGL start up.

Porting Notes

This was a fast port, so don't be surprised to see some bad hacks in place.
The first goal was to get it to run. Making it better is the next step.
I share the code now (in it's current shape), because I know you want to play with it and maybe help out.

There is still a lot of work left to do:
- CLEANUP: I have a lot of porting helpers in place (comments and other stuff)
- stay closer to the original code: play with compiler flags to avoid/revert some bigger changes
- make my widescreen tweaks optional

Feel free to contact me:

🌍️ Wikipedia:

Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast is a first and third-person action game in the Star Wars: Jedi Knight series. The Microsoft Windows and OS X versions were developed by Raven Software, and the Xbox and GameCube versions by Vicarious Visions. The PC version was published by LucasArts in North America and Europe, and by CyberFront in Japan. The Xbox and GameCube versions were published by LucasArts in North America, and Activision in Europe. The OS X version was published by Aspyr. Powered by the id Tech 3 game engine, the game primarily revolves around ranged and melee combat, with the player capable of wielding classic Star Wars weapons such as blasters, lightsabers and Force powers.

The game features both single-player and multiplayer modes. The story-driven single-player campaign is set in the Star Wars expanded universe two years after the events of Mysteries of the Sith. The plot follows Kyle Katarn as he fights against the Dark Jedi Desann and his followers. The game was critically well-received on all platforms, with scores on Metacritic of 89 out of 100 for the PC version, 81 out of 100 for the Xbox version, and 75 out of 100 for the GameCube version.

In 2003, a sequel titled Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy was released for the Xbox, Mac OS and PC. In 2006, the PC version of Jedi Outcast was re-released with four other Star Wars games in a pack entitled Star Wars: The Best of PC. On September 16, 2009, the game was re-released with the other Jedi Knight games (Star Wars: Dark Forces, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II, Mysteries of the Sith and Jedi Academy) onto Steam and Direct2Drive.


Jedi Outcast allows the player to wield a variety of firearms from the Star Wars franchise, as well as lightsabers and Force powers. The player can choose whether to use first or third-person perspective for each weapon, including the lightsaber. Combat is standard for the shooter genre, offering players an array of energy and projectile weapons, plus a variety of explosives. Players have health and shield meters, each of 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; fast, medium and strong, with each style differing from the others in terms of the speed of attacks and damage dealt. There are also a number of combos, many of which are unique to the selected saber style.

Force powers (such as Push, Jump, and Lightning) are available in both single-player and multiplayer modes, but more powers can be used in the latter. The use of powers is restricted by a "Force Meter", which depletes with each use and gradually refills over time. The "level" of a Force power determines the strength of that power and the amount depleted from the Force meter during its use. The multiplayer mode divides players into Light Siders and Dark Siders, pitting each side against the other in team battles. Each side has access to both shared "Neutral" Force powers, which are mostly focused on increasing speed and athletic ability. There are also numerous powers unique to both Light and Dark sides. 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 powers in the single-player, instead receiving a selection of both.

The single-player campaign follows Kyle Katarn as he moves through the levels in a linear manner, meeting friendly and hostile non-player characters (NPCs). Friendly NPCs will occasionally assist the player in combat. In addition to combat, the campaign features a variety of puzzles.

When the game starts, Kyle has forsaken The Force after the events of the previous game, and as such, the player has no access to a lightsaber or any Force powers. However, after the first two missions, Kyle regains his Force abilities. As the game progresses the number of powers available, and their strength, increase. Progression of Force abilities is fixed, and cannot be customized. Having previously fallen to the Dark Side, Kyle has access to both Light Side powers (such as Force Heal and Jedi Mind Trick) and Dark Side powers (such as Force Lightning and Force Grip), along with neutral ones (such as Force Speed, Force Jump, Force Pull and Force Push).


Jedi Outcast features a set of multiplayer modes. In the PC and Macintosh versions, these can be played over a LAN or the Internet, but combat is limited to two players on the console versions. There are a variety of game modes (such as "Free-for-All", "Team Deathmatch" and "Capture the flag") which can be played with other players, bots, or both. Each player has limited customization control over his or her avatar. He or she can choose the player model (with access to nearly every character in the game, as well as some characters from the films not seen in the single-player mode) and lightsaber color. Before a match, the server specifies the game rules, including "Force ranking", which controls how many points the players have available to allocate into Force powers. Players then customize their powers for the match. The server can also choose to disable normal weapons so as to create lightsaber-only matches.


Setting and characters

The single-player game is set around two years after the events of Mysteries of the Sith. As with Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II, the player controls Kyle Katarn (voiced by Jeff Bennett), a former Jedi who has cut his links with the Force after almost succumbing to the Dark Side. At the start of the game he is a mercenary working for the New Republic.

Over the course of the game, Kyle is joined by various other characters. Three of the most prominent are Jan Ors (Vanessa Marshall), a fellow mercenary and subsequent love interest; Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams), the sophisticated administrator of Cloud City, as seen in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi; and Luke Skywalker (Bob Bergen), leader of the Jedi Academy on Yavin IV. The player also receives help from other Jedi and New Republic soldiers, while Mon Mothma (Carolyn Seymour), Chief-of-State of the New Republic, assigns Kyle and Jan missions during the game.

There are four main enemies: Desann (Mark Klastorin), a former student of the Jedi Academy, who killed a fellow student before leaving the Order; Tavion (Kath Soucie), Desann's apprentice; Galak Fyyar (Steven Blum), a general in the Imperial Remnant; and Reelo Baruk (Kevin Michael Richardson), a crime lord posing as a "respectable garbage collector" on Nar Shaddaa. Other enemies include Imperial stormtroopers, numerous thugs and soldiers infused with the Force (known as the "Reborn").


The game begins with Kyle Katarn and Jan Ors investigating a supposedly abandoned Imperial outpost on Kejim. However, when they arrive, they find the base crawling with Imperial forces. They fight their way through the base, discovering a research center studying crystals similar to those used to power lightsabers. Tracing the crystals' origin, Kyle and Jan travel to Artus Prime, a mining colony turned into an Imperial stronghold, where the miners have been enslaved and experimented upon. Katarn thwarts the Imperial operations, but not before Jan is captured by dark jedi Desann and his apprentice Tavion. Kyle tries to rescue her, but, having forsaken the ways of the Jedi, he is easily defeated by Desann, who orders Tavion to kill Jan before they leave the planet.

With Jan dead, Kyle travels to the Valley of the Jedi (a major plot element in Dark Forces II) to regain his Force powers, and then to the Jedi Academy to get his lightsaber. There, he learns of Desann's origins from Luke Skywalker. Luke offers Kyle his lightsaber back if he can complete a set of trials. Kyle completes the trials easily, so easily that Luke quickly deduces Kyle has returned to the Valley. Sensing Kyle's anger about the death of Jan, Luke warns Kyle that the path he is walking is a dangerous one, but he nevertheless gives Kyle the information he seeks, linking Desann to Reelo Baruk, a Rodian crime lord on Nar Shaddaa. Reelo proves to have little information, but Kyle stumbles upon Lando Calrissian, who has been imprisoned in Baruk's dungeons. From Lando, Kyle learns that Desann is a part of a huge operation smuggling cortosis, a lightsaber-resistant material, through Cloud City. Escaping from Reelo, Kyle and Lando then head for Bespin.

Lando drops Kyle off at the bottom of Cloud City, and as he works his way up the structure he has his first encounter with a Reborn. He subsequently fights several Reborn, plus numerous Remnants, until he eventually encounters Tavion, who is about to board a ship headed for Galak Fyyar's Star Destroyer, the Doomgiver. Kyle defeats Tavion and threatens to kill her, but Tavion pleads for her life, telling Kyle that Jan is alive and on board the Doomgiver. Jan's faked death was just a ploy to trick Kyle into going to the Valley of the Jedi in order for Desann to follow him there and tap its power. In exchange for her life, Tavion lets Kyle use her ship to travel to the Star Destroyer.

After fighting his way past some stormtroopers at the Cairn Installation - an Imperial base hidden on an asteroid in the Lenico Belt, where the Doomgiver is docked - Kyle meets up with Luke Skywalker. From Luke, Kyle learns that Desann has found the Valley of the Jedi, and used its energy to empower an army of Reborn which could number in the thousands. After battling several Reborn together, they part ways. Kyle then sneaks across the Cairn base and finds out it is also a large assault ship construction facility, which is preparing for a full-scale planetary assault. Kyle confronts more Reborn, including "Shadowtroopers" - Reborn equipped with armor which is both lightsaber-resistant, and allows a measure of invisibility. Kyle manages to sneak into the Doomgiver before the ship leaves Cairn, but Luke is left behind. After the Doomgiver completes its jump to hyperspace, Kyle uses the ship's communications array to contact Rogue Squadron. He finds Jan in the detention block, but then learns that Desann was not specifically interested in the Valley of the Jedi - instead his goal all along was to invade the Jedi Academy. Kyle destroys the Doomgiver's shield reactor, and kills Galak Fyyarr. Narrowly escaping the ship's destruction, Kyle and Jan use an escape pod to land on Yavin IV.

With the invasion fully underway, Kyle heads to the Jedi Academy, while Jan goes to a hangar to assist in the aerial battle. Kyle soon finds the academy overrun with Imperial forces, but with the help of the New Republic troops, he fends them off. Together with Jedi Academy students, he engages in a fight against Reborn warriors and Shadowtroopers. After crossing underground tunnels, Kyle finally confronts Desann. He reveals the Doomgiver's destruction and the defeat of the Imperial forces, but Desann rejects Kyle's offer to rejoin the Jedi and they engage in a lightsaber battle. Kyle prevails and kills Desann. He subsequently reunites with Luke and Jan, and politely rebuffs Luke's offer to safeguard his lightsaber, saying he is not ready to forsake the Force again.


Source-code release

Following Disney's decision to close LucasArts on April 3, 2013, the developers at Raven Software released the source code for the game on SourceForge under GNU GPLv2 licensing. A few days after release, the source code disappeared from SourceForge without explanation. SourceForge later explained to media outlet Kotaku that Raven Software had requested its removal. Kotaku speculated this was due to the presence of licensed code, such as for the Bink Video format from Rad Game Tools, that was not intended to be made public.

However, prior to the removal a fork called "OpenJK" was created on GitHub with the problematic code parts already excised. The goal of the OpenJK community project is to "maintain and improve Jedi Academy + Jedi Outcast released by Raven Software." This includes the unification of the Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy engines, maintaining the compatibility of previous releases, and providing source ports for Mac and Linux. Daily builds for Windows and early Linux builds are already available.

🌍️ Wikipedia:

Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast est un jeu de tir à la fois subjectif et objectif sorti en 2002 sur Microsoft Windows, Mac OS, Xbox, GameCube et édité par LucasArts, basé sur l'univers de Star Wars.

On y retrouve Kyle Katarn qui doit affronter des Sith. Ce jeu est un jeu de tir à la première personne, ce qui signifie que l'action se déroule en général à la première personne, mais la présence du sabre laser, typique de l'univers Star Wars fait passer le jeu en vue à la troisième personne, ce qui fait qu'il se rapproche alors d'un jeu d'aventure type Tomb Raider. Cette alternance de points de vue est appréciée par certains joueurs. Au début du jeu, le sabre laser et les pouvoirs de la Force ne sont pas utilisables, ils n'apparaissent que plus tard dans le jeu. Notons également qu'il est possible d'utiliser le sabre laser à la première personne dans Jedi Outcast, ce qui est impossible dans Jedi Academy.

À la suite de la décision prise par Disney de fermer les studios LucasArts le 3 avril 2013, les développeurs de Raven Software ont publié le code source du jeu sur SourceForge, sous licence GNU GPL-2. Peu de temps après, ce code source a été retiré car il contenait des bibliothèques propriétaires, spécifiques à la Xbox et Bink Video.

Scénario du jeu

Le jeu se déroule huit ans après la défaite de l'Empire lors de la bataille d'Endor. La Nouvelle République a été instaurée et poursuit les vestiges de l'Empire à travers la galaxie.

Kyle ainsi que sa compagne de toujours Jan Ors, partent pour une planète appelée Kejim. Cette piste les mènera jusqu'à Artus Prime, une planète contrôlée par la Nouvelle République. Kyle et Jan s'y rendent et découvrent que la planète est sous contrôle Impérial. Kyle découvre qu'il y a des prisonniers et décide de les libérer. Lorsqu'il revient à la surface, les prisonniers se sont fait piéger. Kyle les aide et continue son aventure lorsqu'il reçoit un message de la part de Jan.

Cependant, lorsqu'il la retrouve, elle est prisonnière d'un Jedi noir nommé Desann et de son bras droit Tavion. Kyle les affronte mais il est vaincu par Desann. Lorsque ce dernier ordonne à son apprentie de tuer Jan, Kyle devient fou de rage mais ne parvient pas à l'empêcher. Desann prend la fuite et Kyle part aussi de son côté…

Détail de l'aventure

Le mercenaire Kyle Katarn et le pilote Jan Ors sont dans leur vaisseau, le Raven's Claw en direction d'une petite planète nommée Kejim. Mon Mothma leur a confié une mission d'inspection pour voir si des impériaux y sont vraiment présents. Plutôt ennuyés par cette mission, les deux agents découvrent rapidement que la base sur laquelle ils viennent de se poser grouille de soldats de l'Empire. Après avoir nettoyé le bâtiment principal, Kyle décide d'explorer un dernier secteur, en restant en contact radio avec sa partenaire. Au fil de sa progression dans ce secteur, il rencontre de plus en plus d'éléments concernant la cryogénisation et d'étranges cristaux verts luisants. Il réussit à sortir de ce laboratoire caché tandis que la Nouvelle République intercepte un message hostile de Galak Fyyar pour un certain Desann.

De retour à Coruscant, chez Mon Mothma, les deux mercenaires apprennent que les cristaux découverts proviendraient d'une planète minière nommée Artus Prime. Ils seraient fait en cortose, une matière résistant au sabre laser ; les pires éventualités sont donc à craindre. Motivés par un salaire doublé, les deux compagnons partent enquêter sur Artus, recouverte d'une épaisse couche de nuages toxiques. Ainsi, Jan dépose Kyle dans un ravin dans lequel il va tenter de se frayer un chemin jusqu'aux mines sans se faire remarquer. Mais il découvre encore pire que ce qu'il avait vu sur Kejim : les impériaux extraient le minerai en utilisant des prisonniers de la Nouvelle République pour creuser les galeries. Kyle les libère avec l'aide de vaisseaux alliés venus en renfort dès que la nouvelle s'est propagée. Il détruit également de puissants canons à ions et retrouve Jan dans un petit canyon à proximité. Hélas, la jeune femme vient de se faire capturer par deux Jedi Noirs : Desann et une de ses disciples, Tavion. Ces deux derniers tuent la compagne de Kyle d'un coup de sabre. Fou de rage, le mercenaire tire sur Desann, mais le seigneur Sith doté de la Force le maîtrise aisément. Pourtant, invoquant la pitié, il le laisse vivant. Mais en fait il veut le pousser à bout de nerf et lui faire commettre des erreurs.

Remis de ses émotions, Kyle, décide de redevenir un Jedi pour pouvoir terrasser son nouvel ennemi arrogant. Il part donc immédiatement pour la Vallée des Jedi où il s'abreuve de la Force en compagnie du spectre de son père Morgan Katarn qui le met en garde contre ses motivations haineuses. Il veut ensuite récupérer son sabre laser gardé par Luke Skywalker à l'Académie Jedi. Mais sans que la Nouvelle République le sache, Desann envahit la Vallée des Jedi dont la position a été révélée par l'action de Kyle. Ce dernier retrouve néanmoins ses pouvoirs puis son sabre laser. Une seule contrainte : sa vraie force de Maître Jedi reviendra petit à petit en lui au fur et à mesure qu'il goûtera le maniement du sabre. Il est dirigé par Luke vers la fameuse cité verticale de Nar Shaddaa, où vit Reelo Baruk, dont des vaisseaux avaient été identifiés sur Artus Prime. La grande aventure de Kyle débute vraiment.

Sur la lune Hutt de Nar Shaddaa, Kyle ne cherche aucunement les ennuis, la cité étant bien connue comme un des plus grands repaires de crapules. Il entre d'abord dans un bar où il commande une bière corélienne et discute à propos du rodien Reelo Baruk. Mais ayant montré son sabre laser pour être écouté par le barman, il est repéré par les hommes de mains du bandit et on tente de le tuer. Heureusement, la donne a changé : c'est maintenant un Jedi et il se débarrasse sans peine de ses assassins. Ayant obtenu du barman des détails cruciaux pour son enquête, il infiltre l'usine de traitement des déchets de Reelo, qui couvre des activités illégales. Il y découvre une prison secrète où est retenu le chef de la cité de Bespin, Lando Calrissian. Kyle le délivre et tous deux tentent de fuir sous les feux de l'armée du rodien. Mais seul le vaisseau de Lando, le Lady Luke, est encore en état de fonctionner. Les deux réussissent à s'échapper sains et saufs. Ils content leurs aventures réciproques, le chef de la Cité des Nuages apprenant la mort de Jan, et Kyle apprenant qu'il existe bel et bien une relation entre Reelo et Desann. Mais la cité de Lando a été envahie par des mercenaires.

La République étant alertée des agissements de Desann, elle décide d'envoyer un groupe d'assaut sur Bespin. Lando dépose Kyle dans les niveaux inférieurs de sa cité et lui confie la mission de trouver une unité R5 contenant les codes de toutes les plateformes de la ville, dans la chambre de congélation carbonique no 17 et peut-être d'attraper le Jedi Noir. En chemin, Katarn affronte des soldats capables de manier le sabre laser ce qui lui donne un peu plus de fil à retordre que les bandits classiques.

Une fois le droïde trouvé, Kyle accède à la ville proprement dite et se fait aider par quelques résistants. Il parvient alors à une des plateformes pour transporteur de la ville et y rencontre Tavion. Elle lui révèle que Desann l'a suivi dans la Vallée des Jedi et que grâce à lui des simples soldats sont en train de se transformer en Revenants qui maîtrisent la Force et le sabre laser. Un duel s'ensuit. Mais Tavion a sous-estimé son adversaire, qui a déjà retrouvé une bonne partie de ses compétences physiques. L'ancien Jedi finit par empoigner le disciple de Desann, qui le supplie de ne pas le tuer, étant trop lâche pour mourir. Tavion révèle alors, que Jan Ors est encore en vie et est retenue prisonnière sur le vaisseau de l'amiral Galak Fyyar, le Doomgiver (car tuer l'une des deux seules personnes à connaître la position exacte de la Vallée des Jedi n'aurait pas été intéressant): il la libère et la laisse partir. En suivant les conseils de la femme, Kyle part avec un transporteur pour une base inconnue située dans la Ceinture de Lenico où le vaisseau est amarré. Il contacte aussi Luke Skywalker.



🚧️ Installation ➜ 🚀️ Launching [fr]

Si vous êtes sous Ubuntu (non testé pour Debian), un binaire est disponible sur le même site Github, dans le répertoire "code/Release".


If you just want to play the game without compiling anything, the binary files are located here: "jedioutcast/code/Release/".
The binary files are not build or tested to run on every Linux system, but they should work on Ubuntu 12.10.
I just wanted to add a little short cut.

The following files are needed to run the game:
- jk2sp

In order to start Jedi Outcast, the "base" folder from your original game has to be copied into the folder of the Linux binary files.
Be sure to mark "jk2sp" as executable and start the game with it.

For those not having the Steam version: you'll need the 1.04 update from here
