Hassat said it was his idea.

 

Everyone seemed fine with it up to this point, so I don't really see a reason to change it, or to ban other mods if what they do is the same thing we do. I don't know what the situation with the other mod is or who disapproved it.

(copying the PM I sent FS)

 

Not sure whose idea it was originally, but we had a discussion about whether it'd be OK to use music from K1 in the credits video and consensus was that it's fine. I guess the reasoning was that we're not exactly re-releasing the music as there's no MP3 file, it's part of a BIK, so it's more like releasing a recording of K1's music.

 

I'm pretty sure that discussion is somewhere on the forums, not a clue whether it's in public or staff section.

 

I just saw the new credits video today and it seems we still use the Republic Theme.

 

I think there's a case to be made then that content in bink videos should be exempt from the rules of porting for those exact reasons. Another point of differentiation is that Bink video rendering and playback is not a feature unique to either KOTOR games, so it should be considered differently than the kotor .mdl or tga format.

 

My intention in pointing this out is to allow HK-47's mod to continue to exist.

Other mod re-approved until this is hammered out.

Also can we get people's real names in the credits please? Instead of Forum Alias. 

That to me would be a bad idea because if everyone did put their real name down people who play the mod and read the credits will have no clue as to which forum member actually worked on TSLRCM or any other big project mod that contains a rather large list of people!

Well, we could put both the real names and the stage names.

If you want to talk about the TSLRCM trailer, use the TSLRCM forum. Want to talk about the M4-78 EP trailer, use the M4-78 EP sub-forum.  Further discussion of the trailers in this thread will be deleted.

Approved. Thanks Kexikus for taking the initiative in giving these modules their own unique themes.

 

I wonder why they were the same track in the first place. Laziness on the part of Soule and Bioware? Unable to come up with just one more piece of music? Mind-boggling....

Hard to say. Could have just been an oversight too. You'd be surprised how often that happens.

Um, no.

 

The music, in particular, is on the whole rather worse.

HAHAHA!

 

No, sorry TSL has more depth in every conceivable way and the music is more atmospheric, closer to the score of something like Bram Stoker's Dracula or Batman Returns. Jeremy Soule's KOTOR has a few good themes but on the whole most is just a pale imitation of John Williams.

Not even going to bother arguing with you. For me, most of the TSL music is just boring, and annoying after a while, and there's way too much repetition of the same themes.

 

Obviously we have quite different gaming styles.

They are two entirely different styles. Kotor 1 is a story of drama of a grand scale, while Kotor 2 carries a sense of quiet dread and nonstop intrigue.

Personally I find Kotor 1 far more memorable and akin to what you hear the original three Star Wars films. However, the Kotor 2 music, if used appropriately, (Which I feel Obsidian kind of didn't do) carries a lot of the weight of the story and pulls you into how complex and far-reaching the consequences of being a Force wielder can really be.

I'm not a big fan of either games score tbh. I do much prefer K1s score though. I tend to use movie scores for both games or Shem's mod that replaces all the in game music with scores from the movies (which is great).

"No one is immune from failure. All have tasted the bitterness of defeat and disappointment. A warrior must not dwell on that failure, but must learn from it and continue on. But not all learn from their errors. That is something those who seek to dominate others know very well, and know how to exploit. If an opponent has failed once at a logic problem, his enemy will first try the same type of problem, hoping the failure will be repeated. What the manipulator sometimes forgets, and what a warrior must always remember, is that no two sets of circumstances are alike. One challenge is not like another. The would-be victim may have learned from the earlier mistake. crossing of life paths". - Thrawn

 

"All strive for victory. But not all understand what it truly is. To a soldier or pilot on the line, victory is surviving the current battle. To a politician, victory is an advantage one can bring to a bargaining table. To a warrior, victory is driving an enemy from the field of battle, or bringing him to surrender. Sometimes the victory is greater than the warrior could ever hope for. Sometimes it is more than he is able to bear". - Thrawn

Part of my opinion on the two games' soundtracks also comes from the fact that I'm a soundtrack collector, and on their own, the difference is quite noticeable to me.
