Hello again everyone, I'm back with yet another glitch!
So after just recently purchasing a new computer, I took it upon myself to reinstall all of my mods for the first KotOR game. This time, I was absolutely determined to 'squeeze' every bit of content from as many mods as possible, manually ironing out incompatibilities as they arose. As I alluded to in my NPC glitch a few weeks ago, this was mainly editing NPCs in various modules by customising them to my liking and building upon the work of other mods (for my own private use of course).
Anyway, after warping to every module to screen for potential errors, I discovered a minor yet annoying bug in the Sith Academy. Basically, there are a few NPCs that are performing the wrong animation (in this case, the computer panel animation). This affects several NPCs in the corner of the main room (where Uthar Wynn is), a few more in the room leading to the Valley, and the torturer in the duel room (who should be casting force lightning instead). Now, in my limited knowledge of modding, I can guess that perhaps it has something to do with certain scripts contained in the .mod file but I have no idea if this is true or how I would go about fixing the issue for that matter.
Of course, I can only speculate as to what exactly caused this issue since my module edits were only NPCs; I never touched any scripts. It may have possibly been the NPC Overhaul mod in tandem with some other big mods (like BOS:SR or something) but I digress. Rather than trying to iron out the issue by reinstalling everything or retracting my steps, I'd rather just fix the problem directly. So to summarise, what I'm asking for is how to specify for a particular NPC to use a certain animation.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
EDIT: All good everyone, I managed to fix the problem. For some reason, the NPCs in question had the incorrect script specified in their UTC file. No idea how that happened but as long as it's fixed!

I've been a passionate SW fan for many years now (though probably not as long as some people on here!) and absolutely love the franchise, the Old Republic universe especially. If I could summarise my love for KotOR with a quote, it'd have to be 'What greater weapon is there than to turn an enemy to your cause? To use their own knowledge against them." On the other hand, everything I love about TSL is captured by Kreia's cryptic entonement - "I use it as I would use a poison and in the hopes of understanding it, I will learn the way to kill it".
I'm an avid political junkie (almost to an excessive degree) and follow political developments in many countries, Australia, the US and the UK especially. I generally follow a libertarian (with a distinctive small-l) approach on most issues, but do personally lean towards conservative moral values. This perfectly ties in with my interest in economics (where I strongly favour laissez-faire, monetarist principles) and in law (where I subscribe to textualist and originalist theories and which I also happen to be studying as a profession). So in the (terribly unlikely!) event that you have a political query, look no further!
When it comes down to it, I'm just your prototypical SW-loving, KotOR-playing, legal-studying, laissez-faireian Deadlystreamer!
