Description: Play as Batman from The Animated Series for a singleplayer/multiplayer game!
This is a skin that I made of Batman based on Batman The Animated Series. He has a cape and of course Bat Ears that I custom made. He also has a Batman color themed lightsaber, my own design, both hilt and blade. He has some vocals that I took straight out of Batman The Animated Series TV Show. When you first play, make sure you "jump" to hear a special vocal from Kevin Conway himself! :)

This is the envirosuit from Quake II. It grants 60 seconds of invulnerability to drowning and sector damage from swimming in toxic waste.
You can download it from the Miscellaneous section or directly, here: Envirosuit.zip.

(Yes, I realize it's not really a logo but it definitely still counts!)
The Force Engine is a project with the goal to reverse engineer and rebuild the Jedi Engine for modern systems and the games that used that engine - Dark Forces and Outlaws. For version 1.0, Dark Forces support is complete but Outlaws is not yet playable.
Definitely read the full release notes but the notable improvements over vanilla Dark Forces include:
- High Resolution and Widescreen support
- Optional Quality of Life improvements, such as full mouselook, aiming reticle, improved Boba Fett AI, autorun, and more
- new save system that works seamlessly with the existing checkpoint and lives system
- and more!
You can also watch the release trailer on YouTube.

I installed it on my Ubuntu 20.04 Linux installation via the flathub link posted in the forum thread. Once I copied over my JK installation's required GOB files it started right up and ran great! No need to install and configure wine which can be a pain.
In addition, the github page mentions that the demo is playable online (uses webassembly): https://maxthomas.dev/openjkdf2/
I was able to play the demo directly in Firefox! Give it a try if you have already!

The counter is open source and you can read about it here: https://www.goatcounter.com/. This is just added to the main massassi site, not any hosted sites and not the forums (although I may add one to the forums later -- just to confirm that virtually nobody uses them anymore).
Update: Apologies, setting "Do Not Track" in your browser doesn't prevent counting. Please use an ad or content blocker if you don't want to be counted. Sorry for my confusion!

They have been uploaded to the rbots site and the links there now work. Thanks again darthslaw!
The following files are still missing. If anyone has a copy somewhere, please send them to me so I can get them uploaded.
Description: This is a level I made 20 years ago, back when I was 14 and played Jedi Knight a lot. This level really has no purpose apart from just being my personal little project back in 2002. It was forever in an unfinished state and forever it will be. On Massassi Temple for posterity sake. For the few who still play, please enjoy. :)

Max Manager is a game manager and launcher for the game Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2, and it's expansion Mysteries of the Sith. Made because I couldn't get older programs to work on Windows 10. It has a number of features to make running the game easier in 2022.
Max Manager can be downloaded from our Programs section or directly: Max Manager 1.0.1. It's now also referenced in our Level/Mod Installation instructions.
This looks like a great replacement for the defunct Patch Commander. Please give it a try!
Update: there's also a 32-bit version that has been added to the programs section. This can be used if for some reason you have a 32-bit version of Windows, or, like in my case, you chose the 32-bit version of wine for Linux.

The blender-sith addon is fully fledged Blender 2.79 addon for importing/exporting 3DO models, KEY animations and importing mat textures into Blender for games: JKDF2, MOTS, DroidWorks and Indiana Jones & Infernal Machine. Initially addon was created for modding IJIM and now expanded to all games based on Sith engine.
Addon allows you to edit all 3DO & KEY specific properties in Blender e.g. type flags of mesh polygon face, extra face light, geo & light mode, KEY flags, vertex colors etc... and export them back to file. The pivot point is baked into mesh (for now) and won't be exported in node entry.
The addon was better tested with IJIM game assets then other games. I ran batch script to import all 3do models from JKDF2 & MOTS to make sure they load up properly in blender. Haven't tested much of the KEY & 3DO exporting, thou @Shred helped me testing few models in the game. There might still be some edge cases where this addon won't work correctly (e.g. some unknown key flags, type flags etc... that the addon can't digest). That's why addon is currently in beta to find any bugs before final 1.0 release.
There is also a separate repository of blender scripts (which require the sith plugin to be installed). One interesting one is "obj_to_ndy.py" which exports the selected object and it's hierarchy to NDY/JKL file format.
