Q: What updates, if any, have been made to the digital re-release of Jedi Academy for Mac?

Q: I already purchased the box version of Jedi Academy. Can I download the digital version for free?

Q: What languages does Jedi Academy for Mac support?
Q: What’s the story on Jedi Academy multiplayer? Can my copy from _____ play with people on ______?
Jedi Academy is completely cross-platform. Mac App Store copies can play with Steam copies! Steam players on PC AND Mac can play together! You can even play against people on Linux! Everybody can play with anybody. It’s a multiplayer free for all. Have fun.
Q: That’s great news, but I can’t join any multiplayer servers! What’s the deal?
Via Aspyr Support, almost all available MP servers available are modded.
When you try to join a MP server that is modded and you do not have the required mods, you will receive an error indicating that you are missing files. Most of these modded servers have auto downloads turned off for people joining. Be sure to “allow downloads” in MP options to be able to get files when available from the host server.
If you’re still having trouble, please contact Aspyr Support for assistance.
Q: The graphics in the game look super huge and oversized. How do I fix this?
Via Aspyr Support, this appears to only be happening on Retina MacBook Pros.
If you have this issue, you will need to turn off ”automatic graphics switching” under energy saver settings. When you disable automatic graphic switching, it will use ONLY the Nvidia GeForce 650 and not the Intel HD 4000. Having AGS switched on will result in your MacBook Pro switching to the Intel HD 4000 causing the issue you are describing.
If you still have issues please create a support ticket with Aspyr Support for assistance.
