About This File
This mod replaces the voice overs used for Nikto, Aqualish, & Quarren NPCs in KOTOR.
In KOTOR I, Nikto & Aqualish NPCs use the same VOs meant for Twi'leks, Ithorians, & Rodians. Because KOTOR II adds in VOs specific to the two species, I figured hey, why not incorporate them back into the original game?
In KOTOR I, Nikto, Aqualish, & Quarren NPCs use VOs meant for Ithorians, Twi'leks, Rodians, & Bith. Because KOTOR II adds in VOs specific to these three species, I figured hey, why not incorporate them back into the original game?
Installation & Uninstallation
To install this mod, run Installer.exe & select the first option to install the main mod.
Then, run the installer again for any of the compatibility patches you may need. It doesn't matter which order you install compatibility patches in. You must have installed the other mods beforehand.
To uninstall this mod, delete the files from your game's Override and streamwaves folders (I've included a list of them in the readme.txt). If necessary, restore any files in "backup" to the Override folder. Restore tar_m03ab.mod to the modules folder if you've installed the K1R Compatibility Patch.
Compatibility patches have been added for the mods already mentioned due to their common usage.
The K1 Restoration Mod has a Nikto NPC in the Vulkar Base sublevel with Basic (English) VOs. I decided to leave this unaltered as to not interfere with the restored content.
Some of the Nikto VOs don't have perfectly matching mouth animations, which is because KOTOR II has some missing .LIP files. The placeholders I'm using are as close as I could find. These may be replaced in a later version.
Redros's mouth doesn't move for a couple of lines of dialogue. This bug happens regardless of this mod & only if his appearance is Nikto, so I felt it's a bug beyond this mod's scope.
Please let me know of any other issues you find, or if you come across anything I missed!
Major thanks to the KOTOR community for the passion & dedication that keeps these games alive.
This mod is not supported by LucasArts, BioWare, or Obsidian Entertainment. It is for personal usage only & intends no copyright infringement. As this mod ports files from KOTOR II to KOTOR I, it's intended for players who already own both games. I do not claim ownership of these ported files.
Contact me on DeadlyStream or via Discord (listed on my DS profile) if you have any questions, comments, suggestions, or the like.
If you want to use this mod as a part of an external work, please reach out to me first to get permission! If you just want to use the included .WAV or .LIP files, you're better off extracting them yourself. Not only are they not my property, some of them are renamed duplicates or have been modified otherwise.
