Jedi Academy SDK Update
6:00 AM | Mike Apps | Comment on this story

Mac gamers out there working on modifications to Aspyr Media's popular shooter, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, will be happy to hear that programmer Brad Oliver has posted an updated version of the Software Development Kit. The Update fixes several bugs:

I've updated the Jedi Academy SDK to fix a few issues in the initial release. The project files are updated to XCode 1.5. More importantly, I rolled in a fix for powf that would cause crashes at runtime.

The SDK has its own version of powf that takes different parameters from the system version, which is only available on 10.3 or higher. What's more, the system version wasn't being linked into the resulting libraries. Anyway, I've cleaned that up better now so that it only uses the JKJA version. The fix I applied should allow other mods to work as well, so you shouldn't have to hunt down each powf call in the code.

This should make the 3 people who keep posting to my earlier blog entry happy. :-) If any more issues arise with the SDK, feel free to post to the comments for this entry.

For more information on the SDK or Jedi Academy, follow the links provided below.
