About This File


This mod uses a mix of new and unused content to restore an alternate ending that was cut from the game. With this mod, players who have romanced Carth and fallen to the dark side will be presented with the option to seek redemption in a new ending distinct from the base game light side and dark side endings.

Choosing the dialogue option "No, let him speak. I want to hear what he has to say." in a conversation with Carth at the end of the game will lead to the restored sequence. The player will then have the option to choose the base game dark side ending or the new ending.


  1. Extract files from the downloaded archive.
  2. Run Install.exe.
  3. Click "Install Mod" and select your game directory (default name SWKOTOR).

For various legal and ethical reasons, this is entirely optional and is not a requirement to downloading or using any of my mods. I also do not create specific mods for hire.

I make mods as a hobby and will most likely do so regardless of any donations or lack thereof, but modding does take up a lot of my time and every bit helps.

A long-awaited and much-needed standalone restoration for this scene. I know a lot of folks who really love this ending who are going to be ecstatic.

Another gem by JCarter426, one of the most influential K1 modders still in activity.

I read about a possible remake of KotOR game and while I would be very interested in it, I doubt it could ever amount to what KotOR is today thanks to the quality contributions made to it by the community, whose best representatives turned an originally excellent game into a true masterpiece.

Even though this is not the first mod that restores the cut Dark Side ending of Carth's romance, JC has done an excellent job in not only restoring the ending, but also making improvements to it, most notably by adding scene of Carth and the player character holding hands.
