This is a mod for the award-winning game Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic [K1].
Well the day has finally come where I publicly release a mod; it only took 13 years of owning the game! While I have modded my own game extensively over the years, this is my first mod. It may be a bit rudimentary but hey, at least I got there in the end!
The origins of this mod started in my dislike of the default portraits which I thought were too bland, not to mention tiring to look at after years and years. So I endeavoured to replace these portraits with some of my own using mostly fan art collected from around the internet. Over the years, I periodically 'updated' these custom portraits with new images as I stumbled across them. This mod is simply a public release of my current crop of portraits for the first KotOR game.
The 'Default' folder contains portraits for all 9 main party members - Jolee, Juhani, Canderous, T3-M4, HK-47, Bastila, Carth, Mission, and Zaalbar. I have also included a file for anyone who has Silveredge 9's Darkside Bastila mod (which adds a line to the Portraits.2da file to use a different darkside portrait). HOWEVER, it's important to note that the darkside portrait mentioned is simply a copy of the one in the 'Default' folder and is NOT a special or unique version - perhaps something for a future update?
Move all the files from the 'Default' folder to the 'Override' folder located in your game directory. Repeat the process for any of the files you wish to use in the 'Optional' folder.
Remove all the files from the Override folder.
It should be compatibile with most anything, except other mods which alter partymembers' portraits. All PC portraits are unaffected by this mod.
None that I know of.
This mod is not be uploaded to any site by anyone other than myself. This is because I don't own the IP on the images - while it was me who went through the effort of compiling and editing the images for the game, the actual art belongs to other people.
Bioware and LucasArts for the exceptional game.
A special thanks to the following authors - without these guys' exceptional work, this mod would not have been possible!
