KotOR Stuff provides several tiny command-line tools that each perform a small task. With scripting, these tools could be used to simplify batch processing or support other tools that perform more complex tasks.

 

Currently three tools are included:

  • bif - Extract assets from KeyTable/BIF repositories
  • erf - Extract assets from ERF/MOD/SAV and HAK repositories
  • tpc - Convert TPC files to PNG or PNG files to TPC. Use command line options to select which side of a cubemap, what frame of a cycle animation or which mip map to convert. Can also list TXI attributes if any are present.

[TOOL] KotOR Stuff

I started to work on a set of small tools for extracting assets from KotOR. These tools are not in any way competing with more complex tools such as "KotOR Tool" or "KotOR Toolset". Those focus on giving a complete experience - a complete solution for all your modding needs. KotOR Stuff does the opposite.

Future releases of this project may include:

  • Creating new BIF/ERF/MOD/SAV and HAK repositories
  • Adding resources to BIF/ERF/MOD/SAV and HAK repositories
  • Convert PNG to TPC given additional information on the command line
  • Improved TPC support: Even though the tpc tool can correctly convert some TPC types that "KotOR Tool" can't, some image types are still not handled correctly. For example, cube maps with only four sides exist but can't be converted yet.

Future releases of this project will probably not include:

  • Pretty GUIs that makes modding a breeze for anyone (That is what "KotOR Tool" and "KotOR Toolset" are for.)

Hi, I am interested in the tools used for modding KotOR. I consider myself to be a decent programmer and hope that I can find a way to be useful to this community.
