Academy and Jedi Knight 2
-Actually installing Jedi Knight is quite simple once you get Wine/WineX working. When Wine is installed it creates a fake 'C' drive for you, most of the time it will be located at '/C' (right under the root dir) If you're using WineX then it creates a 'TransGaming_Drive' dir in your home directory. Check it out and make sure you have those directories.
NOTE: It is important to follow all given instructions to the last detail to get everything working correctly. That includes any / or ~ when issuing commands in the console.
Installing Jedi Academy
-JKA has two CDs included in every
box :) ...and unfortunately that creates a small problem. The game will
not allow you to unmount (eject) CD1 once you start the installation
process. So in order to be able to gain access to CD2 you first need
to copy the whole CD2 over to you home directory. For example:
-We need to make a temporary dir
so we can copy CD2 there and then use it for the installation later.
So to get started, first open a Terminal Window and make a dir called
umount /mnt/cdrom (make sure you are not sitting
in the dir of 'cdrom' otherwise you will
get 'device busy' errors)
OK, so now eject your CD2 (two) and
replace it with CD1 (one). Now we have to mount CD1 and start the installation
process.. Open an terminal window and type in:
-From the pop up box, select 'Browse' and locate your 'Root' drive. Open it up and find the path over to your temp JKA dir. If you followed all the instructions correctly, the path we want to find is: '/home/username/JKA-CD2/GameData/' ...once you there hit OK and we can resume the install process. After the installation is done it will ask you for CD1 once more... since that CD is already mounted in your drive, simply point it back to the correct drive letter and resume the install.
WineX should give you an 'WineX --> LucasArts' entrée in the KDE or Gnome menu-bar. While you should be able to launch the game from there, we recommended to start the game directly from its home directory. Usually it will be something like that:
/home/username/TransGaming_Drive/Program Files/LucasArts/Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy/GameData/
/C/Program Files/LucasArts/Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy/GameData/
you are in the Jedi Academy directory you can start the game by typing
... now you should be on your way to play the game... enjoy.
-If you experienced any problems during the installation and can't seem to resolve the problem feel free to post a message on our forum with a detailed description of your problem. I check it often to see if I can be of any assistance to anyone.
