The Massassi Temple: Jedi Knight Info/Cheats

Introduction

In our opinion, Jedi Knight is the best Action game ever released for the PC. It has everything from an engaging storyline and a great story to great graphics and such special features as the lightsaber and force powers.

True, as of this writing (August 1999), the JK engine is showing dated graphics. The graphics quality doesn't compare to newer releases such as Unreal and Half-Life. However, Jedi Knight's appeal isn't in the graphics - it's in the theme. For a very long time, people have wanted a game in which they can actually use a lightsaber to defeat their enemies. As mentioned before, the addition of force powers also brings a whole new dimension to the game.

Add to that some of the best level design in the history of action games, easy to use multi-player support, a high quality engine (to date, there has only been one patch released, and all it is for is to fix a small joystick bug), and a whole slew of user-created maps and mods, and you have a very addictive game with a ton of replay value.

Demo

Lucasarts released a demo of the game just before it was released in stores. You can still download this demo from their Jedi Knight Page. The demo is basically Level 9 of the game, a very impressive level showing off the depth of gameplay and the high-quality level design that the game consists of.

Addon Levels

Addon levels can be created by users for Jedi Knight (read below). These levels can be downloaded from this site (see our download section in the right hand toolbar). Once you have a level you want to play, you will have to unzip it with Winzip, and then install and run it with Patch Commander.

Editing Information

Lucasarts was very smart when they created Jedi Knight in a way that users (like yourself) could create their own levels, patches, and modifications. These patches are frequently distributed over the internet for free (actually, it's not legal to charge for them, so if anyone tries to sell you a level or patch, make sure to report it).

The Massassi Temple started out as an editing site, dedicated to bringing the Jedi Knight community tutorials to teach people how to make their own addons. From there, we decided to give users a place to release their maps, but that's another story. Anyway, if you would like to make your own levels or mods, be sure to read over our Basics section, and then take a look at the tutorials.

Console Commands

Console commands are the commands you can type directly to the JK engine. You already have experience using console commands if you've ever used a cheat code. If not, please read over the cheats section for a brief overview.

Cheat codes are one type of console command, but there are many others that can help you out. Trail's Guide has the best list by far.

Command Line Switches

Command line switches allow you to turn on certain features of the game (advanced display options, etc) by typing it in at the dos prompt. Full instructions and the different commands can be found over at Trail's Guide.
