Dark Forces Mod for Jedi Academy
6:00 AM | Jean-Luc Dinsdale | Comment on this story

Thanks to a Halloween day post on their forums, the development team of the Dark Forces Mod have been able to confirm that their modification for the LucasArts light sabre-wielding shooter Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy is fully operational under the Macintosh operating system.

The Dark Forces Mod is a community-based project aiming to bring the playing experience of the 1995 title Star Wars Dark Forcea, the original first person shooter based on the Star Wars universe, to modern operating systems. Piggybacking on the franchise's latest installment, the mod reproduces the gameplay of Kyle Katarn's first adventure in a true 3D environment, while updating the models, maps, effects and music of the original.

According to the developer's website, work on the modification is well underway. The mod's music and sound, re-created textures, models, and code work are all at various stages of completion, and three of the original title's fourteen maps have been completed. While the developers estimate that the project is about 35% complete, a 200 MB demo of the mod, featuring the first three maps of the game, has been released and is available to download.

Click on the links below to visit the developer's website and download the hefty demo for yourselves. Keep checking in with IMG as we'll update you on the progress of the nostalgic title.
