In the first Knights of the Old Republic game Anchorhead and the Ebon Hawk share the same background music. This mod allows you to change this.
There are four options available that replace either the Anchorhead or the Ebon Hawk music (see below for prieviews of the music):
1) Czerka music for Anchorhead:
This replaces the Anchorhead music with the Czerka theme music also heard in the Czerka offices.
2) Dune Sea music for Anchorhead:
This replaces the Anchorhead music with the Dune Sea music.
3) Custom music for Anchorhead (FOLLOW THE ADDITIONAL INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS BELOW!):
This replaces the Anchorhead music with a custom music file of your choice. A possible option here would be the Tatooine theme from Star Wars: The Old Republic but you can use whatever you want.
4) Custom music for the Ebon Hawk (FOLLOW THE ADDITIONAL INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS BELOW!):
This replaces the Ebon Hawk music with a custom music file of your choice. A possible option here would be the Ebon Hawk theme from KotOR 2: The Sith Lords but you can use any music of your choice.
Options 1) to 3) are mutually exclusive but you can combine option 4) with any of the others.
Also note that you need a save from before going to Tatooine to get the new Anchorhead music and a save from before leaving Taris to get the new Ebon Hawk music.
Run TSLPatcher.exe and choose the option you want to install. Then follow the instructions given. If you chose option 1) or 2) you're done at this point. Otherwise follow the instructions for the custom music files below.
INSTALLING THE CUSTOM MUSIC FILE:
If you chose option 3) or 4) you need to get your custom music file into the game. Most of the work here was done with the installer but one last step remains.
First of all, choose the music you want to use. It needs to be a stereo .mp3 file for the game to recognize it. If your file is no .mp3 yet, choose any audio file converter and convert it.
Then rename that .mp3-file to "mus_area_anch.mp3" if you chose option 3) or to "mus_area_hawk.mp3) if you chose option 4).
Finally take your renamed .mp3-file and place it into the "streammusic" folder in your Knights of the Old Republic installation.
That's it. Your custom music will now play ingame.
Take the all the .mod-files from the "backup" folder created during the installation of this mod and copy them to the "Modules" folder of your KotOR installation. If it exists, also copy ambientmusic.2da from the "backup" folder to the "Override" folder of your KotOR installation.
Note that if any other mod installed after this one also altered one of these .mod files you will uninstall those changes as well!
Thanks to TSLPatcher this mod is compatible with everything that does not change the track name of the music played in Anchorhead or the Ebon Hawk. It is compatible with mods that replace the actual music file (although you might no longer hear those if you install this mod).
