I always wondered why both TSLRCM and M4-78 use RIM files for 702/703KOR rather than using MODs like for every other module. Having just tried testing something in 702KOR using a MOD, it seems like this doesn't work properly for the academy module, for some reason? The module loads, but things like cutscenes are broken. It's not an insurmountable problem, as TSLPatcher can patch RIMs I gather, but I am curious as to the cause.

Aren't some of the modules saved only as RIM files? When I was looking at the modules in KOTOR tool, not every module was a .mod file. There were a few .rim files in there. Don't they usually work the same?

All vanilla modules are only RIMs. The MOD format (player-made module) is a legacy of Neverwinter Nights.

This is the reason.

I don't believe anyone ever figured out a reason why they're broken in a MOD.

But it's only in that specific module, right? Cutscenes work fine in every other module when overridden with MODs. Does that module do something unique that no other module does?

As far as I know, yes, it's only that specific module. I never found out why, but if anyone knows or has any ideas, I'd love to hear it.

Maybe it was a development oversight that they forget while they built up the game?
