Jedi Knight Collection worth it???

I played a little bit of Jedi Academy (fun as crap online too) and loved it, wanted to pick them all up on Steam. Any compatibility issues I need to worry about?

Only thing I can remember is the music not playing because the original game used the CD in the disk drive to play the music as an audio CD, they weren't actual sound files.

Dunno if they ever fixed it, but I do know it was problematic at first when launched on Steam.

They're all still fun. I played through the series (4 or 5 games) recently again and they all worked perfectly. I don't remember if I got them from Steam or GOG, though.

had to be Steam since they're not on GOG atm, unless GOG lost the licensing.

Most likely the first Jedi knight, as it was a problem even when it was originally released. The others, not so much as far as I know.

I ran my Dark Forces 1 and Jedi Knight 2 discs without any problems. I would assume Steam would be the same.

I can't find anything saying it was fixed. Could anyone confirm?

I bought the collection on Steam about a year ago, and I had no problems playing the games...played through the whole collection too.
