#59330 [WIP] Integrated Graphics Mod (TSL of the Old PC)

Posted by Mutilator57 on 13 September 2017 - 12:28 PM

I'm digging these changes; in all my years of playing these games, the framerate has been the one issue that has plagued me constantly. Keep up the good work!




#59140 Increasing The Size of K1's Menu Screens?

Posted by Mutilator57 on 06 September 2017 - 12:06 PM

I'm personally not much bothered by it. I mean, of course it would be a great thing to have and good luck to anyone that tries it! But, it's not like you can't see the letters and content clearly enough. To be honest, if I had to choose, I'd go with new and exciting content over a fix like this.

Or you could just have them re-record all of Batu's lines, they aren't that many and it would sound even better :D

This.

Lol, I love the brutal putdown by the K-Files reviewer. My kind of guy.

I know, right? Such a difference from the unabashed politeness of Emperor Devon when reviewing this xD

Although I can't confirm this, I think I remember seeing something similar on FF ages ago. Don't know if it's still around anywhere though.

EDIT: The closest I could find was this on NexusMods. Obviously miles apart from DP's awesome work, but as close as you're gonna get at this stage I'm afraid.

Who'd of thought a simple bug-restoring mod would generate such controversy xD

I guess a piece of TSL history is being restored. A+ for imagination!

#52920 Worst Star Wars Conspiracy Theories

Posted by Mutilator57 on 27 January 2017 - 11:27 PM

This is probably something that belongs in a thread like "Best Star Wars Conspiracy Theories" but to hell with it.

The theory that Kreia was the mother of the Handmaiden, Arren Kae, was pretty big back in the day. "Brianna, I am your mother" (said in a raspy, respirator voice). xD

Evidence:

  • Both were exiled from the Jedi Order.
     
  • Kreia was presumed dead in the Mandalorian Wars while Kae supposedly died at the Battle of Malachor V; no body of hers was ever found though.
     
  • Both were respected masters who trained Revan.
     
  • Both have similar views on battle being an expression of belief and culture.
     
  • Kreia knows much about the Handmaiden's heritage and of her alleged mother.
     

And that's just off the top of my head, I'm sure there are way more connections.

As for the worst theory? It's definitely got to be the crazy notion that Krennic is Snoke. Why? Because muh similar blue eyes! Oh, they both wear nice clothes and have similar faces! No further evidence is required, Krennic is Snoke confirmed.

:hrhr:

Maybe the movie will be focused on villain's point-of-view? 

That would certainly be an ambitious and interesting move. I doubt they'd actually do it though.




#52621 Will The Old Republic Era be Re-Canonized?

Posted by Mutilator57 on 23 January 2017 - 10:40 PM

I would have preferred it had they just left the canon before the Imperial Era alone. Few tweaks here and there, sure. But assigning the whole span of 20+ years worth of work, admittedly not all great but certainly still worthwhile, to little more than a second-rate title?

Unlike a lot of people I know including many friends who are really into SW, I've come to accept what SWTOR and the Revan novel did to Revan and the Exile. It was bloody horrible, but I moved past it. So the argument that the new canon was able to sweep away all of the bad parts of the EU never really held much appeal to me.

To be honest though, I'd be surprised if the Old Republic Era was not made canon. Outside of the main saga, it has the largest fanbase if I'm not mistaken. But my enthusiasm for this is tempered by the fact that I'm certain they'll edit and reform it (significantly) to suit their new and 'improved' canon, paving the way for possibly even more butchering.




#52620 [Request] Serious looking Republic troopers

Posted by Mutilator57 on 23 January 2017 - 10:29 PM

I think this is a wonderful idea. It always bothered me how the Sith troopers were armored head-to-toe while Republic soldiers looked like they were wearing light fibres with a helmet slapped on. One of my friends rationalised it by describing it as a comparison between the war-weariness of the Republic in contrast to the limitless resources of the Sith Empire, but still!




#52616 Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

Posted by Mutilator57 on 23 January 2017 - 10:17 PM

Damn, another uninteresting and weak title. To be honest, I have higher hopes for the stand-alone movies than for the main trilogy at this point. Definitely excited for the former since Rogue One :D




#50384 Your Initial Thoughts When You Played KotOR

Posted by Mutilator57 on 25 November 2016 - 08:52 PM

This is almost ancient history for me, it feels like such a long time ago!

I remember my Dad and I bought the KotOR game for Christmas of '04 I think. He would often play games in those days and I would watch, at times offering scathing critiques of his gameplay. He had difficulty adapting to the game needless to say, not the biggest SW fan out there.

So...I had a go...

I loved it from the start! It became my go-to game for years; I think I must have completed it at least scores of times in this early period. I do recall being stuck in the Sewers on Taris for the longest time though, trying (half-heartedly) to get past that force shield. What can I say, I don't really think I had any idea what I was doing! :hrhr: It's been so long I don't even remember how I reacted to the Revan reveal but I do recall loving the way that it injected some dynamism into the story.

TSL was altogether a more...drawn out affair. Back in the old days when we used to rent (that's right, *rent*) games from the video store, TSL was always my #1 choice; I would play it after school all the time on the old X-Box (although I must confess I have no idea how I adapted to those controls) Didn't get it for PC until about 2007 where I was able to actually finish it properly. The more ominous aura of the game did spook me a bit though O.o

Entered the whole modding scene the following year and I think I must have probably downloaded oodles of files and mods from the old FF site; used to check up there regularly as a long-time lurker. I'm just glad to see that the modding community has survived and thrived even to this day.

Looking back I used to adore K1 and dislike TSL in comparison, I had no time for the subtleties of the Force and Kreia's endless lectures on balance and thoughtfulness, I didn't understand the nuance of her message. Nowdays though, while I still love K1 for the archetypal hero's journey, I usually prefer TSL due to the darker undertones and more thought-provoking dialogue. What a turnaround, heh!

#49876 Black reskin of Bao-Dur's remote

Posted by Mutilator57 on 06 November 2016 - 07:30 AM

It is indeed from Oldflash's Final Touch mod. From memory, there are significant problems compatibility-wise, particularly since Final Touch modifies the Appearance.2da file with a line already in use with M4-78EP. Although it has been a while since I did it, meaning I can't remember the exact process, I *think* I managed to conjure a workaround by creating a new line the Appearance.2da and just taking all the necessary files from Final Touch's tslpatchdata.
