A KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC II: THE SITH LORDS MODIFICATION

ORIGINAL AUTHOR: DarthTyren (darthtyren@gmail.com)
CURRENT MANAGER: Leilukin
LATEST VERSION: 1.4
FILE NAME: PartySwap 1.4.7z
CONTACT: E-mail to Leilukin at leilukin@outlook.com, or message to Leilukin on Deadly Stream

 

1. DESCRIPTION:

This mod allows the player to recruit both Handmaiden and Disciple in the same playthrough regardless of the player character's gender.

After Disciple joins your party on Dantooine, a usable adrenal item named PartySwap will be added to your inventory. You can use this PartySwap item to replace any member of the current party with Handmaiden, as long as you are able to choose your party at that point of the game. This item is created to work around the limitations of not being able to select Handmaiden from the party selection screen after Disciple joins your party and takes Handmaiden’s slot in the party selection screen. However, Handmaiden remains still one of your party members, and you can still talk to Handmaiden.

This mod also modifies certain parts of the game where potentially both Handmaiden and Disciple can become involved in the cut scenes. In addition, this mod prevents Handmaiden and Disciple from referring to the player character with the wrong pronouns by editing dialog and splicing voiceovers.

For this mod to take effect, you must install this mod before you leave the secret academy on Telos, where Handmaiden joins your party. The PartySwap item only works if Handmaiden has already joined your party.

NOTE: Since July 2023, the original mod author DarthTyren has officially handed over the management and development of this mod to Leilukin, due to DarthTyren's departure from the KotOR modding scene. Therefore, if you have questions about or encountered any issues with this mod, Leilukin is the one to contact for.

 

2. INSTALLATION:

First and foremost, make sure you have The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod (TSLRCM) installed, since TSLRCM is REQUIRED for this mod to work.

After downloading this mod, extract the mod’s 7z file to anywhere you like, as long as it is not within the KotOR 2 directory.

Run PartySwap Installer.exe located inside the extracted folder. You will see two installation options. You may only choose ONE of these options:

  • Default Installation: Choose this option if you use TSLRCM without M4-78EP.
  • M4-78EP Installation: Choose this option if you use M4-78 Enhancement Project (M4-78EP) in addition to TSLRCM. You must install M4-78EP first before running this installation option.

FOR REGULAR TSLRCM USERS:

Choose the installation option you want, and select your KotOR 2 game folder as your KotOR 2 directory path, click the “Install” button and let the installer do its job.

FOR STEAM WORKSHOP USERS:

If you have subscribed to The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod (TSLRCM) from the Steam Workshop, for your KotOR directory path, you must choose TSLRCM's Steam Workshop folder, NOT the main KOTOR 2 directory. The directory of the Steam Workshop version of TSLRCM is \Steam\SteamApps\Workshop\content\208580\485537937, while the directory of the TSLRCM + M4-78EP combined Steam Workshop mod is \Steam\SteamApps\Workshop\content\208580\1402798020.

 

When you install this mod, two new folders named "backup" and “uninstall” will be created by the installer in the same folder as the installer. Do not delete the folders or any of the files within the folder if you are planning on uninstalling this mod.

This mod also provides a compatibility patch for deathdisco’s Coruscant Jedi Temple mod. Go to the “Coruscant Jedi Temple Compatibility Patch” folder from this mod, read the READ ME files within the subfolder and follow the instructions to make PartySwap compatible with Coruscant Jedi Temple.

Note: The "Source" folder includes the source of the script used by this mod for modders' reference. Ignore the "Source" folder if you only want to install and play this mod.

 

3. UNINSTALLATION:

Open PartySwap Installer.exe and select your KotOR 2 directory where you installed this mod. From the “Tools” dropdown menu, select “Uninstall Mod / Restore Backup”, then confirm to uninstall the mod. You can also choose to delete the backup after uninstalling the mod.

 

4. KNOWN ISSUES:

None currently known. If you find any bugs or issues, please report them by posting on PartySwap’s download page or support thread on the Deadly Stream forums, or contact Leilukin directly.

 

5. MOD COMPATIBILITY:

Apart from The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod (TSLRCM), which is required for this mod to work, any mod that edits Kreia's endgame dialog (904kreia.dlg) or Zuka's dialog on Dxun (zuka.dlg) is incompatible with this mod, unless they merge in installation. In that case, you must install PartySwap first.

This mod is not compatible with any other mod that involves putting the holorec.dlg file in the Override folder. If you want to use this mod, make sure you DO NOT have holorec.dlg in your Override folder, or Handmaiden will not be able to join your party when you play a female character!

This mod provides a compatibility patch for deathdisco’s Coruscant Jedi Temple.

This mod is compatible with KOTOR 2 Community Patch.

This mod is compatible with JC2's Train the Handmaiden.

This mod is compatible with all Leilukin’s mods for KotOR 2, including the romance mods, as long as you follow the instructions from Leilukin’s mod.

If you want to use danil-ch and Darth Hayze’s Extended Enclave, downloading and installing a separate compatibility patch is required to make PartySwap compatible with Extended Enclave. If you use Leilukin’s Handmaiden and Female Exile – Disciple and Male Exile Romance, you need to use the patch included in that mod. Otherwise, go to this page for a standalone compatibility patch: https://deadlystream.com/files/file/1304-partyswap-and-extended-enclave-compatibility-patch/

 

6. PERMISSION:

You may modify this mod for personal use or show this mod in screenshots. However, please do not redistribute or re-host this mod. Do not release your mods containing assets from this mod without permission.

 

7. CREDITS:

Thanks to the wonderful modding community at Holowan Labs/DeadlyStream for helping with the problems faced with the development of this mod.
Special thanks to VarsityPuppet, for teaching about #include scripts and how this mod does not need to bother with them.
Sith Holocron — Thanks for the aid with VO splicing!
Snigaroo — For testing and reporting bugs, including the game breaking bug surrounding Disciple's endgame dialog, as well as transferring the ownership of this mod file to Leilukin on Deadly Stream.
Cortisol and th3w1zard1 — For developing HoloPatcher as a better alternative to TSLPatcher to make installing and uninstalling this mod faster.

Absolutely brilliant mod, and the dialog splicing to correct male/female pronouns depending on the Exile's gender is very well done.

Bit of trivia is that according to the KOTOR Campaign guide, this is actually canon to the game. Meetra Surik had both the Disciple and the Handmaiden.

What's the cheatcode for getting the adrenal item for switching to Handmaiden?  I downloaded this right after I met Disciple.  Also, does KSE work on her for influence and everything else? 

Response from the author:

If you waited until meeting Disciple to download this mod, you won't be able to use it on the current playthrough. It's meant to kick in post-Telos, then when you recruit Disciple is when you get the adrenal to swap party members out for Handmaiden. Also, yes, KSE works just as it normally would.

I'm only giving this a one star because I'm having trouble using this page to download mods.  I'm used to Nexus mod manager (use that mostly for Skyrim) along with Vortex which does the installing for  you and also easily enables you to enable or disable a mod.  For people who have been using this for a long time I'm sure by now they know what to do, but for a new comer like me it's very difficult and time consuming especially when you get 30 error messages.   I even went on YouTube to see if there was a how to video on how to use Deadly Stream but I couldn't find one.  If anyone knows of one or could make a video that would help people like me who are new to this page.

Absolutely essential. It is baffling that the original developers split Handmaiden / Disciple like this in the first place.
