Run JK with Command-Line Parameters

Several features can be enabled via Command-Line Parameters (sometimes called params, switches, or options).

To use Command-Line Parameters, create a shortcut file for running JK or MotS:

  1. Open Windows Explorer (the program that allows you to see files on your system).
  2. Go to the folder where Jedi Knight or Mysteries of the Sith is installed. By default, the folder is "C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Jedi Knight" or "C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Mysteries of the Sith". (On some Windows, Program Files might be replaced with Program Files (x86).)
  3. Create a shortcut to jk.exe or jkm.exe file: Right-click on the jk.exe or jkm.exe file. Click on Create Shortcut menu item. A new file will be created in the same folder; that is the shortcut.
  4. View the properties of the shortcut: Right-click on the shortcut file. Click on Properties menu item. A window opens showing the shortcut properties.
  5. Edit the Target box (which shows the full path of the Jedi Knight or Mysteries of the Sith executable): Type in the parameters after the path. (The -windowgui is needed on newer Windows and will show only the menu screens in a window. The -path Mod allows JK or MotS to load any mod files placed in the Mod folder.)
    "C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Jedi Knight\jk.exe" -windowgui -path Mod
    "C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Mysteries of the Sith\jkm.exe" -windowgui -path Mod

You can use as many switches as you want, and the order isn't important.
