  2. KotorDiff

    A simple CLI to easily compare KOTOR file formats.
    This is a very simple CLI to PyKotor. If you find TSLPatcher isn't patching the resulting files in the way you want, you can use this tool to compare your manual changes to the resulting TSLPatcher result. You can also use it to compare entire installations, directories, or single files.
    How to use:
    Simply run the executable. It'll ask you for 3 paths:
    PATH1                Path to the first K1/TSL install, file, or directory to diff.
    PATH2                Path to the second K1/TSL install, file, or directory to diff.
    OUTPUT_LOG   File name/path of the desired output logfile (defaults to log_install_differ.log in the current directory)
    If you point PATH1 and PATH2 to two KOTOR installs, it will ONLY compare the Override folder, the Modules folder, the Lips folder, the rims folder (if exists), the StreamWaves/StreamVoices folder, and the dialog.tlk file. This was a design choice to improve how long the differ takes to finish. This includes any subfolders within the aforementioned folder names.
    Supported filetypes/formats:
    TalkTable files (TLK) Any GFF file (DLG, UTC, etc) Any capsule (ERF, MOD, etc) Not supported: NCS, NSS
    Any file format that's not supported will have its SHA256 hash compared instead.
    CLI Support:
    This is a very flexible tool. You can send it command line arguments if you would like to use it in a 3rd party tool. Run `kotordiff.exe --help` to get a full syntax. If there's an error, the exit code will be 1. If the two paths match, the exit code will be 0. If the two paths don't match, exit code will be 2.

    FAQ:
    Couldn't I just open my two files with Holocron Toolset/ERFEdit/K-GFF etc?
    You could, but for me it became tedious to manually compare them side by side, expanding every node etc. Leave alone completely multiple files. This tool allows you to simply input two paths and have the full differences outputted and logged.
    A main benefit is it'll show you the exact GFF paths that differ. Output such as `Missing struct: "EntryList\5\RepliesList\3" {contents of the struct}` has been very useful.
    Why is my antivirus is flagging this?
    This is a false-positive and there's nothing I can do. Python source scripts are compiled to executables using PyInstaller, but unfortunately some antivirus's have been known to flag anything compiled with PyInstaller this way. The problem is similar to why your browser may warn you about downloading any files with the .EXE extension.
    This whole tool is open source, feel free to run directly from the source script: https://github.com/th3w1zard1/PyKotor/blob/master/Tools/KotorDiff/src/__main__.py
    There's a well-written article explaining why the false positives happen on their issue template: https://github.com/pyinstaller/pyinstaller/blob/develop/.github/ISSUE_TEMPLATE/antivirus.md
    TLDR: PyInstaller is an amazing tool, but antiviruses may flag it. This is not the fault of PyInstaller or my tool, but rather the fault of how some scummy users have chosen to use PyInstaller in the past. Please report any false positives you encounter to your antivirus's website, as reports not only improve the accuracy of everybody's AV experience overall, but also indirectly supports the PyInstaller project.

  3. Iridorian

    Modder's Resource - Iridorian
    by 90SK
    It is not fully assembled but it contains the parts required to set it up in appearance.2da.  The head is the Ubese "Sith Assassin" model, and the body is PMBBL (the KotOR 1 Soldier clothing).  The skins and the model for the body are there. The head model needs to be arranged but the texture provided for the head is on the Ubese Helmet model.  KotOR Tool is required to finish the appearance into TSL, and it is not compatible with K1 at this time. ---
    Special thanks to Fred Tetra, author of KOTOR Tool, and Obsidian / Bioware for their original material.

  4. KOTORModSync

    Please see http://github.com/th3w1zard1/KOTORModSync for the main repo.
    Please report any bugs or problems you encounter. While I test this heavily, it's difficult to find any and all problems when incorporating 200+ mod's instructions across dozens of operating systems and platform combinations. If you happen to notice something odd or out of place, please report them.
     
    KOTORModSync is a multi-mod installer for KOTOR games that makes it easier to install and manage mods.
    I usually install the Reddit mod build every year or so. The process takes about an hour and it's repetitive moving files, running tslpatcher, deleting specific files, and occasionally renaming some files. The last time I installed the modbuild I made a mistake on a single different step, 3 times in a row. Most mistakes require a full restart from the beginning. This is tedious, so I decided to create an installer creator in C# to simplify the process.

    Goals
    Mod creators work really hard on their mods. It's the least we can do to install them and use them, right? However, who wants to reinstall to vanilla and spend several hours reinstalling mods, just to add 1 or 2 extra mods on top of it? Other mod managers I've tried were either too difficult to configure, require significant changes to a hard-to-understand configuration file, or only provided limited functionality for defining new mods. KOTOR mods definitely can have complex dependency relationships with each other in regard to compatibility, due to the nature and age of TSLPatcher.
    Usage
    If you are an end user just wanting to install some mods, simply load up the instruction files provided, choose the mods you want from the left list and any options, and press 'Start main install' Watch Xuul's tutorial video here: Effortless Modding with Kotor Mod Sync: The Ultimate Guide for Star Wars KOTOR Mods (youtube.com)
    If you are a mod developer, this program contains a full-blown instruction editor that'll allow you to quickly create instructions for your mod and define its compatibility with other mods. See Dependencies/Restrictions and InstallBefore/InstallAfter explanation - Pastebin.com for more information. See the video tutorial here: Creating involved instructions for KOTORModSync - YouTube

    Features
    Can install the https://kotor.neocities.org/ mod builds in about 20 minutes from a vanilla install. Supports TSLPatching on mac/linux without wine! Select the individual mods you want for an install - the dependencies and incompatibilities will automatically be chosen and sorted. This means end users don't have to worry about specific instructions regarding other mods in the list. All the compatibility steps are handled internally by KOTORModSync and the default instructions files provided here. An end user simply can select the mods they want to install in the left list, and any customizations if they like, and simply press 'Install All' to have everything installed automatically. This program has a built-in GUI editor and an installer packed into one. Modbuild creators can create instructions with little to no knowledge of the format and easily share them with end users. End users can install everything from the instruction file with a simple click of a button. Edit any instructions and verify the configuration with built-in tools. Some support to dry run an install. A flexible configuration editor and parser utilizing TOML syntax. This is very user-friendly and similar to INI which TSLPatcher already uses and most modders are used to. Create instructions files with complex dependency structures for multiple mods, and have end users install everything exactly according to the instructions created. No more manually copying/deleting files: KOTORModSync handles all of that for your end user. Platforms
    KOTORModSync is a cross-platform 32-bit and 64-bit .NET application. It is compatible with the following operating systems:
    Windows 7 and 8: Compatible if running .NET Framework 4.6.2 or higher. Windows 10 and 11: Fully compatible with any Windows release. Linux and Mac: Fully compatible - choose one of the two that match your operating system. Users do not need to download any additional runtimes: everything is self-contained within the application.
    Linux
    You may need additional X11 libraries. In order to get this working on WSL, for example, I had to install the following packages:
    sudo apt install libsm6 libice6 libx11-dev libfontconfig1 libx11-6 libx11-xcb1 libxau6 libxcb1 libxdmcp6 libxcb-xkb1 libxcb-render0 libxcb-shm0 libxcb-xfixes0 libxcb-util1 libxcb-xinerama0 libxcb-randr0 libxcb-image0 libxcb-keysyms1 libxcb-sync1 libxcb-xtest0 Then you can simply run in a terminal like this:
    ./KOTORModSync If you run into problems with the Linux or Mac builds, please contact me and I'll try to get a fix ready for the next release.

    This man saved me a countless amount of hours. I'd still be struggling through game glitches and mod-specific instructions I didn't understand. Actually, I'd probably still be on Dantooine trying to determine why I'm getting visual glitches and crashes which he solved with the one-word message 'grass'.
    Cortisol
    Created HoloPatcher and the PyKotor library that KOTORModSync uses to patch mods. These projects are the main reason KOTORModSync can be supported on Mac/Linux. While the PyKotor/HoloPatcher projects have had some issues, this guy was more or less available for comment if I had questions on how I could fix any remaining problems myself.
    JCarter426
    There were so many KOTOR-specific things to learn, without his help I'd still be trying to deserialize encapsulated resource files. His time and patience were incredibly useful to the project and this project would be impossible without him.

  5. Missing K1 Party Member Ports for TSL [Modder's Resource]

    MODDER'S RESOURCE FOR STAR WARS: KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC II: THE SITH LORDS
    This modder's resource includes models and textures of Jolee, Juhani, Mission and Zaalbar that are ported from KotOR 1 to be usable in KotOR 2: TSL. I have also included character templates (in UTC format) for them, allowing you to spawn them as NPCs in your mod.
    This resource is made because Jolee, Juhani, Mission and Zaalbar never make any physical appearance in TSL, thus their textures and models do not exist within TSLs game files. However, both appearance.2da and heads.2da of TSL, including vanilla, still include entries for these characters, so if you want to make them appear as NPCs in TSL, there is no need to create extra entries for them in said 2DA files.
    PERMISSION:
    This modder's resource is free to use in any mod you create or release. Credit is appreciated, but not required.

  6. Vanilla M4-78 Textures Upscaled Twice

    The vanilla M4-78 textures upscaled twice with A.I. software waifu2x-caffe.

    I've left out the txi files that only had "xbox_downsample 256", those were left overs from the old Xbox version.

    DRO_Ehok.tga is the Ebon Hawk exterior, specific for the droid planet. If you prefer another version of the Hawk's exterior then you may want to replace it.

    I've included upscaled versions of 2 CM files that some of the txi's call upon.

    Requested by some old guy on an obscure website.

  7. Topaz GigaPixel AI Upscales - K2

    WARNING : THIS IS A MODDERS RESOURCE NOT INTENDED FOR USE WITH THE GAME!
    Modder's Resource - Topaz GigaPixel AI Upscales - Source
    These are all of the second games textures upscaled by Topaz GigaPixel AI.
    While they are intended for use eventually with my overall project, for the time being I have handed them off to a texture artist to clean up beforehand, after which they will also be released for the standalone game as well.
    It was also suggested to me that I should upload them here as a Modder's Resource and backup for people to use when repainting any textures for the game.
    So here they are.
    The images shown aren't from the game, but they are the only reference imagery I have to show the upscaling in action.
    All TXI files as well as the few textures that had issues being upscaled in their own packages.

  8. KotOR II Switch Modding Framework

    I wondered, why wait a few months for Aspyr to release TSLRCM when you could hack it together in a few days for fun? To that end:
    Switch KotOR II Modding romFS Dummy Folder 1.0.1
    This is a set of files and folders designed to make modding the Switch version of KotOR II easier and more accessible to a novice user.
    Read to the end before using.
    You will need a hackable, or modchipped Switch to use this, and custom firmware must be installed, I use Atmosphere, but anything that supports romFS should be fine. If you use something other than Atmosphere you'll have to figure out where it goes, but it should be very similar.
    This should work just fine with the digital or physical version (when it is released) without issue. I have only tested this on the most up-to-date build at this time, 1.0.1. I will update this when the next patch is released, and hopefully again when TSLRCM is officially released.
    Extract the zip file, and install any mods you want to use, pointing TSLPatcher at the \Localized\English\ folder containing the dialog.tlk file. For mods that don't use TSLPatcher, copy files as directed, "romfs" is equivalent to the directory on PC containing the executable.
    NOTE: You may need to move files that TSLPatcher is expecting to the folder to be able to patch them. You can access them by dumping your game with nxdumptool, using romfs. Make sure you include updates when doing so. What I included should be more than sufficient for TSLRCM, however.
    NOTE: When you are done, move the override folder to the root of the romfs folder, i.e. the directory with the "swplayer.ini" file.
    Feel free to comment with what you needed, and what mod it was for, and if there is popular demand, I will add the files to this pack. The easiest way I found, was just to try installing a mod, and then check the log for errors to see what files were missing.
    NOTE: Long filenames cause issues with TSLPatcher, this is exacerbated by the length of the filepath for romFS modding. I recommend moving the "romfs" folder to the root of the drive and patching there, moving the folder back afterwards.
    Make sure to check your error log, you may manually need to copy .lip files over to override afterwards.
    Move textures (.tga, .txi and .tpc) to override/Textures or they won't apply. NOTE: Aspyr included upscaled textures with this version that are not in other releases of the game. As far as I can tell, they are all in the format the original textures were in, by and large, that means they are in .tpc format, which trumps .tga and .txi files of the same name. If you have issues with a mod's textures not applying, try converting them to .tpc with Xoreos-Tools. You can download my texture reversion mods for K1 and K2 on Switch if you want to see what files are in what format.
    At this point, copy the atmosphere folder to the root of your SD card, and you should be done. Please feel free to mention any issues you run into, or workarounds you needed, and I'll update this post.
    I tested a run of TSLRCM and Leilukin's Gay Handmaiden mod with great success. I have not tested the Male Exile/Disciple part of that mod, but it should work as well.
    Mods that involve UI likely won't work. Everything is at your own risk, you may end up with a broken save, etc. Worst case scenario, you can uninstall all mods by deleting the `0100B2C016252000` folder from `/atmosphere/contents/`
    Big thanks to JC for a ton of help troubleshooting, and big thanks to Zbyl2 for helping with TSLRCM-related issues.
    7-22-2022 Update:
    Just a change to the readme regarding potential texture issues.

  9. Modder's Resource : Mandalorian Mask Texture

    Modder's Resource : Mandalorian Mask
    by 90sK
    A new mask item that resembles Darth Revan's Mandalorian helmet. 
    It does not replace the default Force Mask in TSL, it is a new item of its own.
    The texture works but the model might still display the orange interior glow. Future versions will fix this.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    This code: giveitem revan ,  will spawn the mask in your inventory.
    Based on the Mandalorian mask design of Darth Revan fame.
    All texture editing and model edits by 90sK
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Pretty good rendition of the Fallen Mandalorian Hero mask that I managed to make.
    Enjoy!
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Extra special thanks to staff of LucasForums and DeadlyStream!

  10. Modder's Resource - HARIII's Coruscant Level Models

    Modder's Resource - HARIII's Coruscant Level Models
    by HARIII
     
    These models are thematically of Coruscant, there is documentation of what has been done and they are not fully finished into modules, they need walkmesh, uvmapping for the majority, lightmaps, etc.
     
    The model work for 29 levels has been completed.
    This includes in depth the Jedi Temple interior and exterior.
     
    This is a developer's resource for modelers and level designers.

  14. M4-78 Uncompressed Movies

    Since the cutscenes for the KotOR games are being upscaled, I thought I'd provide my M4-78 EP movies, sans the Bink compression to assist in this.
    As a bonus, I've included a brief cutscene I was requested to make a number of years ago, in which a battle-hardened Harbinger approaches the planet and passes over the central zone, just in case anyone finds it useful.

  18. Bao-Dur arm texture for his default clothes

    Hello everyone,
    This is a modder's resource that is maybe useful for those who want to retexture Bao-Dur's arm and don't want to mess around to get the two seperate textures (P_bao_durA and P_baodur_arm) look the same. Now, the default model of Bao-Dur also uses the P_BaoDur_Arm texture for his arm.

  21. JC's Loadscreen Template for K2

    This is a template for the K2 style loadscreens. Included are a PNG overlay which you can place directly over your loadscreen background, as well as the PSD source. Note that the aspect ratio is 1:1, so the image will be stretched depending the display resolution. That's how the game's original loadscreens are.

  22. Kel Dor Modder's Resource for TSL

    NOTE TO ENDUSERS – THIS IS NOT INTENDED AS A PLAYABLE MOD!
    This pack is a modder’s resource containing a custom Kel Dor head and modified body models with Kel Dor hands. This installer will perform a basic heads.2da and appearance.2da NPC row setup along with simple body variation UTCs for testing purposes. An on-enter script that spawns the UTCs next to the Ebon Hawk on Dantooine is provided in the TEST SCRIPT folder. Simply copy and paste the two NCS files into your Override folder.
    Textures are provided with a basic placeholder diffuse for the head and a simple UV map for the hands. Because of the single texture requirement for variants, the hands have to share UV space with the body. This necessitated altering the UV layouts for all body models, compressing them 50% to make use of 1024x512 textures (original 512x512 body texture side-by-side with 512x512 hand texture). As such, the bodies are not compatible with third party textures/reskins. However, all models and textures use unique names, so there should be no conflicts/incompatibilities.
    The head model has basic skin weights. The respirator mask has been weighted to the jaw to give it some movement during NPC dialogue, but possibly this may be a bit extreme. You may wish to experiment with your own adjustments to the skin weights, although it should be fine as-is for a player head, as they don't have any major jaw animation.
    You are free to incorporate the contents of this mod into your own work, as long as proper credit is provided. Do not redistribute the mod by itself. Although note that this model is basically superfluous now that porting from TOR is allowed.

    » DESCRIPTION
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    A while back, Darth Tyren was asking me about how the KotOR 2 balances the enemies to make them tougher as you go on through the game. We then spent a few hours running some tests and digging through the files, with the end result being that the game seems to just upgrade the enemies' Hit Points and Force Points.
     
    I then theorized that one could use the extra functions Obsidian added for modifying your skills, attributes, feats, and force powers to work up a framework for levelling up the NPCs without actually assigning them levels. This is the result of that work.
     
    The heart of this modder's resource is the "fs_level.nss" #include file, where I've one main function called LevelUp and several support functions that will randomly assign feats, force powers, skill points (including support for cross-class skills), and attribute points at the appropriate times and in the appropriate amounts. I've scoured the various .2da files and the all of the default values and rules that the player has to obey are obeyed by the script as well.
     
    Also, there are 750 .uti files included. There are 50 for each class, and each item handles the defense, saving throw, and attack modifier increases that a given class would get as they level. These items are not accessible or equippable in-game, as they use the hidden creature slots (specifically, slots 14 and 15).
     
    I've shown how to use the #include file in the included "k_ai_master.nss" in the source folder. The compiled form is included in the installation.

    » INSTALLATION
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    An installation which involves the TSL Patcher has been made ready for your use and is the simplest and easiest way to carry out installation.
     
    You don't have to use the installer if you're just using parts of this or adapting it, but it's an easy way to get it all set up and ready to go.
     
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    » KNOWN BUGS
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Not exactly a bug, but the two slots I used may very well be used by animals like the Kinrath that have special properties to their attacks.
     
    There are 2 ways to report bugs:
    1: Post your issues in the Bug Reporting Thread.
    2: PM your issues to Fair Strides at Deadlystream.

  24. Bao-Dur Head Model Neck Fix

    This is a modder's resource that adjusts the position of Bao-Dur's neck vertices so that they match the standard position of other heads. Bao-Dur's vanilla head will "float" if attached to standard bodies. This adjustment ensures the base of his neck will seat properly with the collars of standard body models, which is a necessity for potential future mods like Bao-Dur specific robes.

  25. TSL Thigh-High Boots For Female Twi'lek Body (Modder's Resource)

    Here's another bit of scrap from my junk pile that someone may find a use for. A little while back I made some thigh-high boots for Bastila when Quanon was working on her Taris prisoner outfit. He didn't end up using them, so I tossed them into the abyss with my other rejects. The other day I was looking at the female Twi'lek body models for some reason, and I noticed that (the base version at least) has painted on thigh-high boots. On a whim, I imported my boot mesh and noted that, height-wise, they lined up almost perfectly. Even more interestingly, my UVs were very close in layout to the Twi'lek's legs, so much so that is was fairly trivial to rejig them to fit the existing textures. In practice I'm not sure how much purpose this serves, as from a distance it's basically impossible to tell the difference between painted on boots and my physically modelled boots, at least using vanilla textures, but I figured someone might find some use for it.
    Because the vanilla female Twi'lek model has existing animations (dancing), I have provided a hex edited copy of the original which is now used as the supermodel. That way the booted variant is a simple Override drop-in with no 2DA editing required. Also included is a booted version of the Twi'lek assassin body. Additionally, I have also provided a version suitable for use as a player body that uses the regular S_Female03 supermodel.
    I've supplied modified versions for those variation textures that don't have existing boot textures. There is also an optional variant of the base green variation which has black boots instead of red. The intent of course, given how terrible the vanilla textures are, is that someone will release a proper high quality retextured version, but the NPC portion is useable out of the box if people so desire.

    As a side note for anyone using this directly rather than as a modder's resource, I would highly recommend the use of the optional alternate texture from RedRob41's Luxa Hair Fix mod. What can I say? I like hotpants. Only use the texture, mind, not the meshes.
