Step 1: Download the most current version. 
Found here

Step 2:

Step 3: Now take all the stuff and slap it in your JKA "Game Data" Folder




Step 4: Okay now Windows might hate you and think you downloaded a virus...you didn't... So you will have to tell windows that you are the master and hope it does not become self aware. 


Any way Right click on EternalJK launcher thing.


You will want to run as admin all the time so make this happen...run as admin.png





But how do I use it? you ask? I'll post that later and slap a link in here as well.


For JA+ Animations to work! Download this


You will need to add it to your Base folder and/or EternalJK folder depending on where you open the game.

As someone who still uses OpenJK, would the transition to this one hurt? I mean configs and already downloaded files..

Any experiences? 


Ive tried it and to answer my own question, the transition wasnt that complicated. Just had to move configs to the new folder.

However I just couldnt enable ja+ or ja++ with EternalJK. I saw the animations of others and if i pulled a config it was there, but the settings itself was missing. 

Eventually Ive reinstalled the game and went back to OpenJK, I think the newest version offers almost the same (Im not an expert though)

@SephFF yes, but ive managed to do that in the end, the problem was with ja+ features. Ive tried adding files to japlus folder, EternalJK folder, both, neither :D but it didnt work

@Cassidy The thing with EternalJK is that it does not really support JA+/JA++ (atleast from my own experience) as it automatically has jaPro integrated into the client which basically does the same and offers even more features. The only thing missing are various animations, where without you will just t-pose. For that, I have the "sh_animations.pk3" in my "../Jedi Academy/GameData/eternaljk" folder which puts these animations back into the game.

Is it possible to disable these icons and/or the sound that it comes with?




Just stop killing bots and you won't see this ever again. ??

It should be cg_drawrewards 0.


1 is the default, 2 changes it to an evil looking skull thing and 0 turns off both the medal(s) and sounds.



Thank you ❤️
