Raven Software has released the source code for the Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy games in the wake of the death of Lucasarts. Here's hoping we get a proper triplehead fix for these games now!

There is already a community project, OpenJK, aiming to improve the code for both games. :)

I LOVED this series. Especially the last two, Outcast and Jedi Academy. The combat system was absurd fun and I was always disappointed that a followup didn't happen. Force Unleashed just... wasn't that great. My favorite thing was turning on force run, throwing my lightsaber, and running around in a circle. The saber swings around you and, if you time it right, you can make it orbit your body and turn yourself into a spinning wheel of death. :D

As I recall, Jedi Academy did have triple monitor support but only up to 1280x1024 displays. If you were willing, you could drop the resolution down on your 3x1L setup and go crazy stretch. :D

Game always crashed when attempting to force higher settings, though. :( Here's hoping I can play through it again at full resolution.

JK had support for any triplehead set, so long as you were willing to edit a .cfg and put up with a stretched/spanned HUD. I wrote a hack to fix both games, but never got around to figuring out how to implement them as plugins for either FWS or WSF. Now I'm just gonna shelve em and see what people do with the source code. I also PMed cranky_hermit to see if I can convince him to do with these games what he did with RTCW.

Edit: Seeing as he hasn't been online since August, I'm going to take a crack at implementing his fix myself, but I don't have much hope.

Try Helifax or HaYDeN or dopefish. Our active developers are pretty good...
