After choosing "New Game", and watching or skipping past the cutscenes, you will start at the beginning of the level. At this point you need to look for any graphic issues that may need to be corrected.

Examples of Graphic Problems:

  • The game Crashes Immediately - Windows Error "JK.EXE Has Stopped Working." "Check for Solutions Online" 
  • Graphical clipping, blurring, or other visual issue
  • Black Screen (HUD is sometimes visible with black screen).
  • Border Flickering
If the game has not crashed, you can review your Jedi Knight/Mysteries of the Sith Display Settings and make adjustments. Use the keyboard key ESC to go into the game menu and click "Setup" followed by "Display".

If the game crashed, sometimes you will need to use Windows Task Manager to terminate the game as the Game Window may be frozen in the background or the crashed game may be affecting your Windows Desktop Environment.
  • Press CTRL-ALT-DEL keybord command.
  • Choose "Task Manager"
  • In the Applications Tab, select "Jedi Knight" or "Mysteries of the Sith" and then click "End Task" to close the game.
  • (Optional) If ending the task in the Applications tab does not work, go to the "Processes" tab of Task Manager and select JK.EXE or JKM.EXE. Then click "End Process" to terminate the process.
If you experience graphic problems at this point, take note of it and proceed to STEP 6 to try one of the DirectX Wrapper fixes for 3D Accelleration with Jedi Knight and Mysteries of the Sith.
