This mod replaces the KOTOR legal screen with a high-resolution version that stays faithful to the original.
The two options for installation are the Classic (4x3 with black borders) and Widescreen (16x9) editions. If you don't see your resolution listed as a download, I may add additional options in the future if requested.
Installation & Widescreen Patching
To install this mod, simply drop legal.bik into the Movies folder in your game's directory. Make a backup copy of the original if you might uninstall this mod later.
In order for this mod to work properly, your game must be patched to run in widescreen. Here's a couple of useful links in doing so.

A replacer Lucasarts Logo Screen for KotOR in 1920x1080.
The SWTOR Logo is not a work of mine, it is the EXACT Lucasarts Logo used in SWTOR.
What I did was convert the video file into a BIK file using RAD Tools.

PC Replacement Voices (Kira, DS Jaesa, LS Jaesa)
AUTHOR: Sith Holocron
ORIGINAL RELEASE: 25 DEC 2018
GAMES: Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 1. [This mod will not work in Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 2. See Description for more details.]
RECOMMENDED ADDITIONAL MODS: "TOR Ports: Kira Carsen Female Player Head for K1", "TOR Ports: Jaesa Willsaam Female Player Head for K1" - both by @DarthParametric
This mod's creation was in response to a request by @Untold Prophecy so give him a shout on his request thread if you liked his idea.
A few notes: Not all of the lines will play as that's how the game is set up. However, I've filled out as many of the options that I showed in the female PC voice lines document that I could. This also enables you - the player - to go through the lines and decide which is the best one to use. Options, people! Who doesn't like options?
Some more notes: There are no Jaesa or Kira lines for some of the mine lines that I could find so I included blank files so you won't hear the original PC character's voice. I didn't replace the injury sounds either as it won't make a noticeable difference. (One scream is much like another, IMHO.) There were also a few where all three options use the same lines but as only one of those three play in game, you won't notice a difference. (It was easier copying one line to all three options than figuring out which one plays in game - which I can't do because my computer isn't working.)
Hopefully, I've found suitable lines for the PC various scenarios. You'll have to let me know in the review section below. (Details are better than just leaving stars, you see.) Feel free to link videos of the lines in use if your review. I would've done it myself but my computer has not been brought to repair shop yet.
This mod is only for Knights of the Old Republic 1. Knights of the Old Republic 2 - although it has the voice files for the male and female PC - that game doesn't have them activated, rendering the Exile mute. In order to use this mod in Knights of the Old Republic 2, you must install JC's Player Soundset Restoration for K2 in KotOR2 before this mod. That being said: As this mod is strictly designed for KotOR1 and not for KotOR2, any sounds that do not end of playing what you expected should not be reported to me.
There are three folders in the package: one for Kira Carsen, one for light side Jaesa Willsaam, and one for dark side Jaesa Willsaam. Choose one (and only one) of these soundsets and you can't use multiple soundsets for one character. Once you've made your choice, follow these instructions.
1) Move the original KotOR1 files that share the file names in this mod to a place you can find them. (I recommend a folder on your desktop.) Those files will be located in the "Streamsounds" folder where you have KotOR1 installed.
2) Extract the files from the 7z folder. Grab the new files from that extracted folder and put them in Streamsounds folder.

By ebmarCustom 'Animated Revan' Legal Screen 1.1.1
A custom 'animated Revan' legal screen for KotOR in 1920x1080.
The animated Revan is not a work of mine, it is a .gif upload by Danny Russell. So all credits to him for doing the hard job!
What I do is some edits, convert, and blend the animation with the legal content I made so it can be utilized in-game.
This mod is very much inspired by VarsityPuppet's "New Legal Screens for KotOR and TSL 1.0".
Installation: Run the Installer [TSLPatcher.exe].
Uninstallation: Delete the said file, or overwrite with the file stored in the Backup folder inside the mod's folder [located at the same level as the 'tslpatchdata' folder].
Compatibility: Should be compatible with anything except other mods which potentially alter the Legal.bik file.

This is a small file to replace the legal screen BIK file that comes with the Brotherhood of Shadows: Solomon's Revenge mod. This new movie is sized to 1920 by 1080 and is 10 seconds long. If you use it in a mod, all I ask for is a credit. Thanks.
Installation: Drop it in the Movies folder.
By Mellowtron11This is the Official 1.03 Patch for Knights of the Old Republic. I downloaded this from the Lucasarts website a long time ago before the original website went down back in the late 2000's. I didn't find it here on Deadly Stream, so I thought that I'd upload it.

A VARSITYPUPPET MOD
- New Legal Screens for K1 and K2
This will change the Legal Screens that are shown when you start up the game. Just a way to mix it up a little.
-- Choose the variant from the folder you like, copy/paste Legal.bik into Movies
-- Choose the variant from the folder you like, copy/paste Legal.tga into Override
-- There is a backup folder with the original legal.bik (.mov if you're using mac)
-- Delete the file from override
- Due to the way I structured this mod, this should work with Concept Loading Screens and any loading screens added by TSLRCM or any expansion mods.
