For those curious about seeing the movies that Stoney created for his original M4-78 mod, I've uploaded these for your viewing pleasure. I don't personally suggest in using these videos with the M4-78 Enhancement Project as the skyboxes are different in the two different mods. Following this is Stoney's original read-me. I've kept the contact information as it originally appears but comments can be left below or you could send a PM to Stoney heree.

Avellone on TSLRCM: www.eurogamer.net/articles/2012-07-31-chris-avellone-knights-of-the-old-republic-2-restoration-team-should-be-given-a-lot-of-kudos Knights of the Old Republic 2 lead designer Chris Avellone has praised, to Eurogamer, the efforts of voluntary The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod (TSLRCM) team.[...]
"I have a lot of respect to TSLRCM for restoring the content, and I'm glad it can see the light of day," Obsidian's Avellone told Eurogamer.
"There was a lot more that we wanted to include in the title, obviously, and the restoration mod should prove it.
"Those guys should be given a lot of kudos for their hard work, so for anyone who plays the restored content and enjoys it, let other fans know and give credit where credit is due: to TSLRCM."
That is... pretty awesome!
I'm a little late to the party but this is awsome! so I guess we have a legit mod now?
I thought about a duel boot but I need a bigger hdd and ran out of money between buying win7,new graphics card and a larger proccessor. One good thing is I do have an older comp with xp on it so and can still extract and compile the models with that one if needed.
No,the 1.0b patch is not required but it fixes a lot of issues TSLRCM does not(since the patch already fixed those issues we didn't need to). So the only issue is those bugs the patch fixed will still exist in the game.
This is what 1.0b fixed(bug wise)
------------------------ NEW CONTENT AND FEATURES ------------------------ * Added voice lines for Opo Chano when the PC states they can repair the protocol droid themselves on Telos (dark side) * Added support for the Intel i915 chipset

Players can now win races after forfeiting a race. * Corrects an issue with the swoop bike getting stuck in air in the swoop race mini-game * Corrects stuck issue when reboarding Ebon Hawk on Nar Shaddaa * Corrects a text/voice mismatch in Kreia's dialogue on Malachor * Corrects a scripting issue with Batano quest on Telos (light side) * Corrects a scripting issue with Devaronian conversation on Telos * Updates a journal entry for "A Hidden Power" quest on Korriban * Updates a journal entry for the "Fuel Sabotage" bonus mission on Telos * Master Vash’s corpse will now yield a lightsaber if you have a lightsaber when you kill him on Korriban (dark side) * Khoonda Gun Turrets will no longer appear if you destroy them on Dantooine (dark side) * Reduced the repetition of party members' voice lines when opening doors and containers
[NR] Vossk and the Genoharadan - Vossk makes references to the Genoharadan being on the Smugglers Moon.
[NR] A Dead Exile - Dessicus (Genoharadan) blows up the Jekk'Jekk Tarr and the party thinks the player is dead. Visas or Kreia will say that the betrayals will start to mount between the Sith.
[NR] Zez-Kai Ell's Rescue - Since Dessicus was originally supposed to be in the Jekk'Jekk Tarr (instead of Visquis) and he was supposed to set off an explosion. Zez-Kai Ell rescues the Exile from an explosive death, though the party still thinks the Exile is dead.
[NR - doesn't fit in the game's plot] Mira and the Exile plan things out - Mira, instead of knocking the player out, will explain Zez-Kai Ell early and have the Exile go in first instead of her stealing the environmental suit.
[NR - not enough dialog] Spa Treatment at the Jekk'Jekk Tarr - The Twi'leks were supposed to be like the Twi'lek slaves at Davik's estate and offer steam baths and massages.
[NR - doesn't fit in the game's plot] Environment suit stays on - The player would have the option to leave the environment suit on when speaking with Visquis. This exchange was moved to the arena to replace the Genoharadan. Visquis later would be able to capture the Exile and order the Ubese to take him to Goto.
[NR - Lord of Hunger's patch] Dessicus of the Genoharadan - Obviously, the Genoharadan would be the organization beneath the Jekk'Jekk Tarr. Dessicus will challenge the Exile. After they fight, Dessicus blows the Jekk'Jekk Tarr up.
[NR] Threatening Goto - When stumbling upon the control center, the player threatens to use a certain skill to dismantle his vessel, however, Goto says that his droids will just turn off the oxygen.
[NR] Genoharadan are none of the bounty hunters' concern - One of the Zhug brothers will mention that the Genoharadan are also after the Exile during their meeting with Goto, and so Goto commands them to ignore them and says that they aren't of any concern.
[NR] An Option to see Mandalore - Instead of player just killing the Mandalorians if he doesn't want to meet Mandalore, the PC has an option of leaving them alone.
[NR - Possible with mod by Hassat Hunter (provided the player joins Talia)] Kreia goes to the tomb - Kreia was originally supposed to be allowed to join the party that goes to the tomb. Cut so that it'd make sense with the Tobin scene in the Onderon Royal Palace where Kreia reveals the hiding place of the Jedi.
[R] Vaklu's Entrance - If the player sides with Vaklu, then he should not have been waiting in the throne room but after the beast is dead, he arrives and runs to defeat Talia. Kavar rushes in to stop him. PC stops him. The options here are much more lenient to the light side in which the PC has the option of saying "Onderon would be better off".
[R] Kadron's Fall - If the player sides with Vaklu, then when the PC arrives in the room where Kadron is then he will defend the terminal with his life.
[R] The Sith Revelation - If the PC sides with Vaklu, the Sith will notice that the beasts no longer obey them. The Sith order Vaklu's death for the betrayal.
[R] Party cannot enter - Before entering the tomb of Ludo Kressh, a party member chips in about not being able to move.
[R] Apathy is death! - Currently, only Atton, T3, Bao-Dur and Disciple/Handmaiden/Visas appear in the tomb. Originally, all the party members were to be there to either defeat Kreia, or attack you.
[R] Attacking yourself - At the end of the tomb after, before or during, the PC faces Revan, the PCs doppelgänger is also supposed to attack you. The doppelgänger has no Force powers but a considerable amount of strength. Currently, the copy merely stands there, then fades away after you enter the room.
[NR] Dustil Onasi - The dead Jedi in the tomb was supposed to be none other than Dustil Onasi. He was to be insane and then attack the PC.
[NR] Dvakvar Grahrk - There was originally going to be a Devaronian Jedi named Dvakvar Grahrk slowly turning to the dark side that was to join your party, but was later replaced by Disciple.
[R] Tobin's message - Tobin arrives on the Ravager after Onderon and informs Nihilus about the Jedi at Telos to feed on.
[R] Nihilus Fight expanded - Nihilus raises Visas and the PC up. PC then has the option of becoming his apprentice (lie or not). If lie then the PC and Visas attack Nihilus. If truth, PC turns on Visas and kills her. Either way, PC fights Nihilus. When Visas does die, Mandalore chips in with some dialogue and the PC can just leave her to die alone or mercy-kill her.
[R] Mandalore and Visas - Mandalore and Visas tell each other not to betray each other. Later, Mandalore is hurt and Visas heals him and Mandalore tells all about what Revan did to him.
[NR] Fragile Alliance Falls apart - After Sion discovers the Exile is 'dead', he confronts Darth Nihilus on the Ravager. Sion claims that he is more powerful and never needed Nihilus's help. Nihilus, in anger, shows Sion that he is the more powerful one.
[NR] Originally the player was allowed to leave the Ravager without replacing the broken proton core. This results in the Ravager crashing into Telos IV and exploding.
