About This File
This mod replaces the voice overs used for Nikto & Aqualish 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?
The intention of this mod is to provide consistency between the two games, while keeping the affected dialogue true to its intended "feel". To the best of my ability, I've added diversity, avoided repitition, & also added in mouth animations for VOs that originally had none. A bonus side effect of this mod is that the aggressive Nikto VOs make the Black Vulkars seem like an actual threat.
NOTE: If you already had v1.0.0 installed, please download the Bug Fix option as it makes it easier to upgrade.
Installation & Uninstallation
To install this mod, run TSLPatcher.exe & select the first option. In order to proceed, you must confirm that you also have KOTOR II installed (just to keep it safe when it comes to porting legality).
If you have the KOTOR 1 Community Patch/Queedle Fix or the K1 NPC Overhaul mod installed, run the installer again & select the option(s) for the corresponding compatibility patch(es) you need.
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.
Compatibility patches have been added for the mods already mentioned due to their common usage.
This mod currently is not fully compatible with the K1 Restoration Mod.
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. Maybe I'll create my own one day, maybe I won't.
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.
What's New in Version 1.0.1 See changelog
Two VOs wouldn't play in game because I had forgotten to compress the audio files after making minor edits to them.
