First Porting Attempt

Many thanks to: This instructive topic Fred Tetra's "KotORTool" bead-v's "MDLedit" Chuck Chargin Jr./ndix UR's "MDLOps" JCarter426's "JC's Cloaked Jedi Robes & Supermodel Port for K1 - Supermodels" stoffe/Fair Strides' "TSLPatcher" and DarthParametric's past-present modding knowledge , My first ever porting attempt went a success!     I remembered back then; the very first thing I wanted to do with modding is on doing this, which ends-up me going nowhere with the attempt lol. So, although I'm not actually "create" one, it is always a pleasing feeling to see an effort comes to fruition. Again, credits to the aforementioned folks; as only because of their effort, the dream isn't just a dream. May the Force be with you all!

Flexin at the Anchorhead's Cantina

I have only finished watching "Star Wars: Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (1983)" recently, and those scenes inside the Jabba's Palace was quite memorable for me; one of them particularly is that performance of an alien singer with dancers. I thought the ambience of Jabba's Palace was quite match-up with what's inside the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic's Anchorhead's Cantina, so I decided to ask the band there to play one of my favorite tunes, "La rue" by the amazing Cortex, to kind of fits the atmosphere from Jabba's- while enjoying the beauty of the Star Wars Universe at the same time.

Be Right Back

Had lost my close cousin two days ago. This is my first time experiencing this kind of "loosing" an important part in my life. I have been in a breakup and/or failed in anything before but it feels whole lot different. As I'm writing this down I don't want to be pitied nor any intention of me to spread any gloomy air around the forum. I just want to apologize if I can't reply, not delivering any stuffs or even as active in the forum like before, least in the meantime. It is so hard for me even to only sat in front of my PC, like I don't know what I wanted to do. I even wrote this from my phone. Hope to be back soon. ☺️

The Sith Code X The Revanchist

While ago, I'm surfing through Youtube using the keyword "The Revanchist", trying to find anything interesting and then, the main page leads me to a song by Trivium which the band I've known from about 2006 with their song "The Crusade"; to be short- one of the best Metal band out there! \m/. Then I'm like "wow, Trivium's new song, and the Revanchist? Interesting, let's see..." and the first thing on my mind listening to the first 30 seconds of the song was "this gotta has to be some speech in it. It has to!". Not long, I remember the voice submitted by @DarthVarkor to @Sith Holocron's "Korriban Expansion: Working [only] on the Voice Files (WIP)" thread, I downloaded the file and played the voice along with the song and they fit perfectly; with no cut-drag edit required! From there I contacted SH to ask about it and SH suggested that it would be more consistent if the voice is male and suggested @UnusualCharacters to get a go with the VO. I contacted UC to do the VO and here are the result. A mash-up of Darth Revan's "The Sith Code" whom recited by UnusualCharacters and Trivium's "The Revanchist", with an end-credits dedicated to mods which are currently used on my KotOR playthrough. Hoping y'all enjoy this video, as much as I do! Note: Kinda feel the Force is strong with this coincidence, like the Sith code was meant to be there along with the song in the first place 🤣

The Unknown

Minutes ago I am having this abstract thoughts. If the Jedi have their own code: There is no emotion, there is peace. There is no ignorance, there is knowledge. There is no passion, there is serenity. There is no chaos, there is harmony. There is no death, there is the Force. And the Sith: Peace is a lie, there is only passion. Through passion, I gain strength. Through strength, I gain power. Through power, I gain victory. Through victory, my chains are broken. The Force shall free me. Is there any "cult(s)" in Star Wars franchise with a code that is in between these two? I'm a rookie in Star Wars thing [the first time I'm into Star Wars was when playing KotOR, which is about early March this year I believe], not many things I know beside the fact that there are the Sith and the Jedi. Actually, because of this thoughts I kind of wanting to start a mod [in the future- there are still unfinished projects now; sorry peeps 😛] that create an NPC(s) that represents this "in between" faction. Moments ago, I googled searching the fact for "do Heaven and Hell exist in Star Wars?" to at least, legitimate-check it. And the result; it does- point to this reference. So, using that as starting point I concreted these random words that is coming out of my head to be a "code" and name the "cult"; the Unknown. Believe in there is no Heaven nor Hell. Believe in their existence. Believe in there is something in between. Believe in the Unknown. Maybe one of you reading this could tell me if there are already factions that is beside the Jedi and the Sith, because this idea kind of bugging me now [the idea of start a story about the Unknown to tell the truth 😛, but maybe if you are interested on kick-start this concept; knock yourself out! ] Again, thank you for reading this [if you have been reading this]. And I am sorry- for the inconvenience may I have caused from this writing. May the Force be with you!

BDSM [a Break Down of Stereo and Mono]

No clickbait intended So, after reading some very constructive discussion between @JCarter426 @Kexikus and @DarthParametric in @VarsityPuppet's Ajunta Pall WIP thread, I'm having a little understanding of- why Mono channel would better be implemented rather than Stereo channel for Action, Force Powers, Blasters, and Lightsabers Sound FXs on this game [and I believe in other games too]. It is relevant for the said example to use Mono channel, because- for example, we would want to hear a humming sound of lightsaber on the left side of the speaker when the camera is facing right [something to do with voice panning- if I recall correctly] won't we? And those would not be possible with Stereo channel I'd supposed. The exception would be for dialogue VO on cutscenes- I believe those would be most suitable for Stereo channeled .WAVs or .MP3s as the reason is obvious; for immersion purpose and deep mental involvement of contexts been told. Personally, I am still hoping that Stereo channeled SFXs would be possible to be utilized in-game as me and @CarthOnasty having a plan to alter the Star Map opening sound; to something different than vanilla. The sound has been made, but is still in Mono channel now. Thank you for reading this [if you have been reading this]. Cheers, and may the Force be with you 🙏
