As a whole, the 3 prequels have been substantially better than the 3 Disney Wars, and it's not even close.
I will give you that AOTC is an abomination, there is no avoiding it. However, a simple fan edit (as you mentioned) makes Ep 1 an actually good movie, and despite my hating of several parts of that movie, it set things up and had interesting characters and felt appropriately Star Warsy. RotS is my third favorite Star Wars movie - wanna argue more?
I would still rather watch AotC than any of the three Disney Wars movies. AotC never made me say - "eff this, I'm done", which I did do after TFA.
The damage done to this franchise was not irreparable in the Prequels. The franchise is now destroyed, and you're happy about. You're also my age, so you've lived long enough.
...there's this crazy talk about the prequels being better than TLJ. Sure, you're entitled to your own opinions, but come on guys....prequels better than TLJ?! That's almost 'Turn in your SW Fan Card' territory right there.
Ok, kid, I have one question for ya, before I take your SW Fan Card and rip it into confetti...
How old are you? I went to see ANH as a 5 year old at a drive-in theatre in 1977. The prequels are a mile better than any of the Disney Wars movies. Lol at your mother's milk loving baby hands taking my SW Fan Card.
I have no idea what a finstler is... Sometimes I invent words to convey a meaning from my spiderweb of a brain, and assume the translation is perfect.
People seem very confident that Star Wars will continue being this grand money maker. I am starting to become confident that Disney is (not intentionally) killing the franchise by dilution (too many stories) and lack of originality.
The Prequels, while painful at times, and with some new lore I despised, still brought new and interesting things to the table when it wasn't focused on teen romance and angst, or a bumbling wunderkind that does all the right moves becuz 9000 midichlorians yo.
These new movies I find to be a significant downgrade from the prequels. Their gaming community hasn't really had a game to love since Lego Star Wars - the last title that LucasArts made was TFU2 and it was an uninspired and rushed mod of the original game.
The original DICE Battlefront underwhelmed for pretty much everybody. Now this game starts off on a very wrong foot.
Visceral's game was cancelled, and that was the only game many people like myself were looking forward to.
EA is in trouble. It is a massive corporation and has plenty of other properties to keep it afloat, but they will lose their Disney Star Wars contract IMO. They lost the goodwill of most of the gaming community years ago. They have their iterative sports service franchises, and then a bunch of garbage. NeedForSpeed would be a bigger deal, if anybody cared.
They are publishing titles, more and more, that people may look at, but will shrug and pass on by.
They are fucked. It just will take time. In my lifetime though.
Edit: CPY is a game cracking consortium. Not something we generally talk about here.
Yep, I just don't understand why anyone would want to break the game's systems like that.
Good for you?
People that make mods, make them because they want to, and don't really care about your opinion too much. If other people like it, they will download it, and if not no big deal move on to another mod that interests you.
If you have nothing nice to say, please do us all a favor and say nothing at all.
KotOR Tool has a compiler and editor built in - but it is the same compiler that you mentioned earlier - nwnnsscomp.exe. Using KTool, or Blue's editor (haven't used it, but it looks legit), you have access to the function library, which is helpful in reminding you variables that need to passed, etc.
It has been a minute, and I haven't compiled a script in quite a while, but it is a very simple process. The compiler will either find errors in your code and specify where the error is, or it will compile.
Not all scripts that happily compile actually do anything, or what they were intended to do, so of course it needs to be tested in-game.
