Hi, was just looking for the article on the Knights of the Force mod for Jedi Academy and couldn't find it. I'm guessing it was deleted, but I can find any info on it being deleted (or why) either. Could someone point me in the right direction?

The google cache copy of the article says it is taken from the 20th, so assuming that date is correct the article still existed a week ago. Ttancm 16:38, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

  • It was deleted yesterday by Imperialles. There was no vote, no documentation, he just seems to have taken the initiative and deleted it, so there's no trace of it, really. Thefourdotelipsis 11:42, 27 November 2007 (UTC)
    • It didn't technically exist, having been pretty effectively proven as a hoax, and so was a candidate for speedy deletion. -- Darth Culator (Talk) 13:07, 27 November 2007 (UTC)
      • Even if it's a hoax it's still fairly noteworthy isn't it (like the supershadow article?) (Also excuse the use of a term close to the dreaded Wikipedia "notable"). I was mainly looking to see if it had been updated with any information on the recent (relatively, I tend to run across the site once every couple of months) spate of release dates with no product and no explanations, since information seems to disappear off of the actual site.

        • But SuperShadow actually exists. There is nothing notable about this hoax. --Jedravent 20:50, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
          • It's apparently been released.Ttancm 12:50, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

You can get it here:

A few caveats:

1. It's huge, 1.25gbs

2. There is very little content (5 SP missions by my count, and a bunch of multiplayer stuff) most of the missions/mission options are still locked saying they will be released later (hopefully not another 5 years...)

3. It's a bit buggy, but then JKA itself is a bit buggy on my newest system so I don't know if it's the mod or the game

4. There are clips from the movies used as cutscenes, I'm not sure what the legality of that is (going to differ for different locations as well I assume)

5. There are a number of rumors of viruses/trojans. I downloaded and installed it, and Norton threw a warning for Cmdow, but this is actually a windows component that it seems the mod-maker has re-appropriated for use in manipulating the game menus (also unsure of the legality of this...). I've had no problems, and have no new processes running after the game is closed, no new connections or anything indicative of virus/trojan activity, but if you'd rather play it safe, steer clear.

Honestly, in general I don't think the small amount of content is worth the humongous download, so I wouldn't recommend bothering unless he actually releases the rest of the mod, but if you are really starving for some Star Wars game content it is something I guess...

Why was this deleted without any sort of discussion? Especially since it was debated pretty heavily in the past. This is exactly the sort of under-handed modding that should not be allowed. I'm going to restore it. If someone wants to do something controversial he should have to face up to it. Kuralyov 15:24, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

  • Ask Imp why. Until then, Admin autonomy applies, and you can't just go around undoing other administrators' actions. Havac 18:03, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
