RPMod 0.5.0 Client released!

2014-03-02 20:53:10 - By soh

Greetings JEDI and Community,


Almost 4 years after the 0.4.3 release (April 21, 2010), here comes a new (and unexpected?) major release:

RPMod 0.5.0



All JEDI servers have been updated and are already running it, but on your side (Client side), you will need to download and install the RPMod Client.

This Client is not technically needed, but it is more than strongly advised that you download and use it to benefit from improvements, new features, enhanced effects, bug fixes, improved user interface, etc.


Release notes:

  • This is a major version that brings many new features, improvements and bug fixes, which you can discover in full length in the Changelog.

  • The new RPMod Launcher will let you connect easily to RPMod servers and will always keep your PK3 assets up-to-date with those hosted on RPMod Web. Lauching JKA through Steam is also supported.

    Please note: the Launcher runs as Administrator and will also run JKA as Administrator; if you are using a minimizer or other tools, you may need to run them as Administrator for proper operation.

  • The old client (0.4.3) is compatible with this version, but won't benefit from new features in this version, so please update as soon as possible.

  • Prerequisites
    • Jedi Academy patch version 1.01 (download here, here or here)
