Name: The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod (TSLRCM) 1.8.6

 

1. Description:
----------
Welcome.
Thank you for downloading and installing TSLRCM 1.8.6.
This mod's intention is to restore much of the content cut from The Sith Lords, that was lost to the main game due to a rush to release the game. This rush also left the game with a plethora of bugs (some of which also blocked out content, so not everything restored was really "cut"; for example the quest 'Corrun Falt'), so this mod should seriously decrease the buginess that plagued TSL.
Overall, our goal is to make the KotOR 2: TSL experience as close as possible for us (as modders can do) as what Obsidian originally intended it to be...

 

Be sure to check our website (or ModDB page) for potential upgrades, patches and compatible mods for TSLRCM. Our site will always have the most recent version of TSLRCM, something we cannot, sadly enough, promise from other sources.

Also, if you have issues, questions, or feedback, please post it on the official forums, as otherwise it will be read much later, or not at all. After all, we can't monitor the entire internet.

2. Installation:
----------
1. If you're using an older version of TSLRCM (1.8.2 or lower), a game re-install is required before applying 1.8.6.
(Steam and GOG users, skip to point 4)
2. After re-installing it's advised to apply the official patch (1.0b). Non-US versions require you to install 1.0a first, then 1.0b, US versions can install 1.0b right away. Make sure to apply the patch that fits your version. Also, after installing 1.8.5, the official patch can no longer be installed!
3. If desired, apply the high quality music and/or movie patches
4. Install 1.8.5. Steam users are advised to use the Steam Workshop download - but ONLY IF YOU DON'T PLAN ON USING ANY OTHER MODS. Steam Workshop mods CANNOT guarantee compatibility, and installing multiple workshop mods will likely lead to issues.
CHECK YOUR INSTALLATION DIRECTORY.
DO NOT INSTALL INTO THE OVERRIDE FOLDER OR YOUR GAME WILL CRASH!
We've had several users on Vista mention that instead of Program files (x86) it would point to Program Files/Program Files, causing the installation to fail. Make sure the installer points to the proper location of your KOTOR2 installation.
Default (32-bit windows); C:\Program Files\LucasArts\SWKotOR2\
Default (64-bit windows); C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\SWKotOR2\
GOG default: C:\GOG Games\Star Wars - KotOR2
5. To check if the installation has succeeded, try launching KOTOR2:TSL. If at the main menu it says "Restored Content Modification 1.8.5" on the screen the installation has been successful.
PLEASE CHECK OUR OFFICIAL WEBSITE OR MODDB FOR ANY POTENTIAL UPDATES
6. While we try our best to make this mod as bug-free as possible, with the many options of KOTOR2 and our small testing team bugs, critical ones, sometimes make it through. We will fix them, so check our site for any potential updates and patches. We would rather not have people play unpatched and then experience issues like the black screen (1.7) or red eclipse (1.6)!
7. Install any TSLRCM-compatible mods you desire now. If you're unsure if a mod you want is compatible, check our list at our forums, or section 6 - Mod compatibility in this readme.
ULTIMATE SABER MOD (USM) IS NOT TSLRCM-COMPATIBLE. MOST REPORTED ISSUES ABOUT TSLRCM ARE FROM USERS STILL USING IT. DON'T!

 

* You cannot use savegames made with vanilla Sith Lords or TSLRCM 1.8.2 or lower. Saves from 1.8.3 and above can savely be used, although some fixes may not take effect.
A fresh new game is always the best option for the least amount of issues.

* Resolved some AR_Error generation with easter egg background and robes.
* Fixed T3 skipped dialogue fix getting broken when fixing Steam dialogue being skipped.

3.2 Changelist 1.8.3B - 1.8.4

* Restored original dialogue to prologue, except for 'easter egg mode' users who get the spoken dialogue
* Slightly modified pre-Malachor cutscene
* Fixed reverted instances knowing about Goto in first Bao-Dur/Remote cutscene

* Fixed Remote "complaining" sound sticking around when it should not
* Fixed 2 civilians who were lacking their animations in the Telos Cantina

* Slightly improved 903MAL intro, fixed incorrect camera point for females, and the Elite Sith Assassin will now attack the Exile rather than ignore him/her

* Fixed Peragus Medical Officer speaking the station warning using the Workshop download.
* Added missing installer files: Heads.2da, Movies.2da and Musictable.2da

* Corrected Suulru having the vanilla dialogue attached to him rather than the 1.8.4 version.

Fixed several issues with 'improved' or 'deproved' time recognition.

3.4 Changelist 1.8.2 - 1.8.3
----------
Not all fixes are listed here (for size and many misc. small changes were made). Check here;
http://deadlystream.com/forum/topic/2146-183-preview/?p=25588
for more (but not all) fixes from 1.8.2 to 1.8.3.

 

General - Ebon Hawk;
* Several more typo fixes in the dialog.tlk
* Updated launcher (for the 4CD-version users) (thanks Pra_Viilon)
* Made some lines during the prologue (and Nadaa on Nar Shaddaa) "cutscenes" to prevent questupdates breaking the heard line. Added missing update on getting medpacks. First hatch used outside will no longer be removed.
* Fixed 'Lost Shadows' not closing proper on a certain ending (both TSLRCM and M4-78EP).
* Restored addition HK-47 lines.
* Loot fixes; Missing merchants of 1.8 updated, gloves_03 is missing, if it's rolled it will return gloves_02 now instead of no item at all. Fixed rounding issue allowing low-level drops to something not spawn anything (Peragus).
* Added a few additional lines to the Korriban introduction. A few more for non-M4-78EP users (they will be taken out upon installing M4-78EP) as those were already in use on that planet's intro.
* Added Atton pazaak scene.
* Modified Atton vs Handmaiden, Atton confesses love of Exile to Bao-Dur and G0-T0 modifies Remote cutscenes and adjusted a few odd camera standpoints during 2 disciple cutscenes (all made by danil-ch)
* Extra camera points post-Peragus cutscene.
* Fixes teammates turning upon click during Visas fight, Bao-Dur line's unconscious line was voiced.
* The weapon(s) HK was wearing when the HK vs T3 cutscene started are no longer destroyed, but properly unequipped now.
* Added a missing Mandalore VO.
* Improved quality Kaevee VO. (thanks to danil-ch)
* Restored PMHA03 Male face option for PC. (thanks to Kainzorus Prime)
* Fixed issue with Rubat crystals dissapearing from lightsabers.
* Fixed Crush sound effect.
* You can now train Beast Control after gaining Beast Trick on Dxun. Beast Trick will appear on the upgrade screen once you gain a prestige class, but it cannot be trained, only given.
* "The Polar Cap", "Telos Under Attack" and "Trayus Academy" now appear in the music table.
* 1B, Akkere and Kodin will generate one of 4 HK parts randomly now, instead of basing it on the players' possessed items (which could generate the pacifist package if all 4 were in the PC's inventory).
* Kreia skill-lesson; Automatic completion if awareness was highest skill, unable to complete skill-lesson if awareness was lowest skill. Fixed now.
* PC now shows form just learned from the Jedi Master. During mid-battle Masters actually use form instead of flourish (addition by Danil-ch).
* Visas' lightsaber will no longer be sometimes invisible during training.
* If Bao-Dur is set for Dark Side training but the PC is lightsided, the convo will no longer break without having any more chance to train him.

 

Peragus - Telos:
* Fixed droids not skittering properly in 102PER
* Fixed same droids when passive allowing disabling option if lower than 0 demolition and higher than 0 demolition, but not when having exactly 0 demolition. It's now possible for them too.
* Fixed Harbinger missing if reloading a save after it docked.
* Fixed protocol droid with quest update being repaired during and after convo.
* Fixed utility droids re-activating if talked to and reloading a savegame.
* Wounded Onderon military will only give teammate influence if you kill him yourself, not if he gets killed by Sith.
* Fixed black screen if talking to a Handmaiden and goading them to fighting if you won the 5 sister battle.
* In attempt to prevent the teammate corruption (which I could not reproduce) the fade-to-black will now last longer, until the sisters turns actually hostile.
* Handmaiden will lower her hood when loading the module from a savegame.
* Handmaiden will no longer always be send with male PC's. Depending on your choices in Atris dialogue she will now be send or crawl on your plane, with slight variations in a few cutscenes as result.
* Aesthetical fixes to cutscene where Atris sends Handmaiden with the exile.
* Modified pre-Malachor Carth sequence per developer commentary (thank danil-ch for noticing them)
* Some aestetical improvements to the cutscenes in the endgame of the Academy.
* Fixed quest update from Lorso about luring Batono in a trap being set too early. It will only appear now if the actual global is also set to allow this option.
* Corrected missing "Exchange" quest update in 3 different instances.
* Bumani Corp Gammorean use proper dialogue line now.
* Hidden academy camera changes to show force field.
* TSF will no longer assist you in killing the Sullustan.

 

Nar Shaddaa:
* Swoop Droid no longer sounds like Kinrath.
* Extended attack of the Serroco.
* Saquesh; Allows you to "[intimidate] Stop pressuring the Refugees" if Serroco attacked them and intimidation option for Adana will no longer automatically fail.
* Fixed killing Geriel possibly reopening Refugee Woes. It now no longer updates the quests, since the proper updates are already set talking to Saquesh instead, and as stated, was buggy.
* Docks scene with Mira; Hanharr no longer takes 9 seconds (sometimes leaving a pause) but the duration of the VO-line.
* During Mira or Hanharr's escape an actual alarm now sounds.
* Reinforcements at the JJT are no longer deleted after the cutscene deploying them.
* JJT Map back popup dialogue fixed.
* You can no longer dance for the Twi'lek domo during the run to the JJT (after visquis call). This to prevent the player from missing key triggers.
* Zhug Cutscene: Added another global set to the .dlg on an unskippable line as precaution, hopefully fixing the issue some people had with it not being set.
* If you turn over shield from secondary to primary AFTER shutting down primary the zhugs will actually spawn now.
* If the player overloads the droids now after the bounty hunters spawn, the droids will properly reset to hostile if made friendly, as per the description.
* Once the speeder was rebuild, entering the docks or main area would spawn a new one every single time (on top of the old version, causing great performance issues after a while). This has been corrected, and they will only spawn once.
* Turning Lootra over to the Exchange will wield a lightsaber now too (like all other quest-resolutions), and will no longer be seen as a "light side" action by your team members.
* If you lied to Sasquesh and he sold Adanna fast, then killed him, "Sold to the Hutts" would re-open with no way of finishing it anymore. This has been fixed.
* Goto's Yacht console; fixed issue with count's 8 and 9 on consoles being broken and disallowing interaction with the console ever again.
* Kreia Premonition cutscene added (thanks to Danil-ch)

 

Dxun and Onderon:
* Slight improvements to Kreia's dialogue post-Onderon if Bao-Dur was Dxun Tomb leader.
* Remote is now present if Bao-Dur is the leader of the Dxun Tomb group (thanks JCarter426).
* Covered up some missing area geometry on Onderon (thanks to JCarter426's way too good eyes :D)
* During the LS conversation with Kavar, asking about Telos no longer locks "I saw the holorecording of my trial." It will instead lock if you ask that.
* Dxun camp: The Gate Guard and Patrol guard will now keep patrolling after being talked to, rather than permanently stop at that point.
* Onderon Western Merchant Quarters: Fixed error with citizen dialogue not looping properly.

 

Dantooine:
* When the Handmaiden apprehends Kreia, she should have her hood down. It wasn't working however, since the animation was set for the Handmaidens event instead of the Handmaiden one.
* Zherron will now take the will and bodies out of the player's hands when receiving an unmodified will, instead of having you drag them through the entire game (fake will worked fine).
* Fixed issue with restored Vrook line not turning him hostile properly in the cave.
* Fixed infinite Kinrath crystal spawn bug.
* Fixed HK's infront of the academy not updating questlog if 3rd group (display issue, the cutscene would have still triggered on the Hawk).
* During the jedi academy reveil, added clairvoyance effect if Kreia was not in party, and it no longer loops the animated camera (thanks danil-ch).
* During rebuild enclave, removed 3rd party member if entering with Kreia, as (s)he was getting in their pathing's way.
* Mandalore can no longer run away from his solo-fight.

 

Ravager and Malachor:
* Modified broken soundsets.
* Set hyperspace as EH background when leaving, so it's used during the pre-Malachor cutscene.
* Modified Mandalore-takedown.
* You can no longer start the battle with Nihilus without him draining you (since that's the ingame way to tell why the exile can defeat Nihilus when no-one else can).
* Made the fade-in node unskippable since you could, and never make the fade-in.
* Expanded the kneel and get drained a bit, instead of it instantly leading to combat.
* There's no long pause after killing Visas.
* Visas Suicide; Users where the animation fails (no saber, no clothing, etc) will no longer be stuck on a blackscreen.
* Visas Suicide; Users where the animation works will no longer see Visas falling to the ground twice before dying.
* Changed Mira camera angle during her lift.
* Fixed issue with team turning off their lightsabers if Mira was not in the party during Malachor.
* Light side players will no longer throw the endboss down the core of Malachor.

 

3.5 Changelist 1.8.1 - 1.8.2
----------
(all included mods are used with permission!)
* Includes 301NAR Txi fix by JCarter426
** Fixes window near Tienn not being see-through. Now you can see Tienn from the docks.
* Includes Zez-Kai Ell Revan Overlook fix by danil-ch
** Because, apparently, we overlooked one. Splicing was done well too.

 

* Main screen logo updated to 1.8.2, and it no longer inverts suddenly sometimes (thanks Darth_Sapiens). For the best effect remove the kotor2logo.txi 1.8.1 had if you patched up to version 1.8.2 from 1.8.1.
* A few addition grammar fixes.
* Bao-Dur can now use cyan and bronze crystals to create your first saber. Also fixes the issue where you'd get stuck if you only had a cyan crystal and no other. Vanilla issue, only became apparent now since a no-longer broken since 1.8 store on Telos has a fixed Cyan crystal.
* Fixes issues when you leave Adana in her cell, then talk to her again and tell her to run not updating the quest properly, potentially getting it stuck. (Thanks plyinglemon for getting said situation to our attention by suffering from it)
* The workbench will now use the skill of the user, instead of the PC when dismantling items for components.
* Updated modulesave.2da.
* Fixed broken questupdate with the sabotaged protocol droid on the Harbinger (thanks Josh D for finding this).
* Telos, thugs infront of the door to the Exchange compoud; Removed automatic Ithorian journal update, need to actually ask for Loppak and be refused for the journal to update.
* Nar Shaddaa, Pazaak Den; Fixed potential convo-break for males with Dahnis.
* The Security Spike Tunneler now uses the correct skin (it used to look just like the Security Spike, even if it had an unique icon).
* Onderon; Removed the "A Matter of Leadership" mission from your questlog if you leave the planet without finishing it.
* Several improvements to the Rebuild Jedi Enclave cutscene on Dantooine.
* Telos surface; Added lipsync to one of Atton's line since it was missing.
* Updated Vash bodies' lightsaber drop.
*** The following 2 fixes modify feat.2da. Be aware if you use mods overwriting this it will undo those fixes;
* The Jedi Weapon Master and Sith Maurader may purchase the Condition (+saving throw) line of feats.
* Restored the Mobility feat. The mobility feat gives a 10% increase in movement rate.
(thanks to BarnzyBobble for his assistance in testing if it worked properly)

 

3.6 Changelist 1.8 - 1.8.1
----------
* Modified KOTOR main screen texture (used in the main menu and on loading screens) to make it easier for Steam and KOTOR-compilation users to notice if TSLRCM is properly installed, considering they do not have a launcher, and "how do I notice it's installed properly" was becoming a very popular question.
NOTE: When using the patch it's only an indication that the patch installed properly, not 1.8 as a whole. If in doubt, please re-install TSLRCM 1.8.1 using the full installer. If the main screen is updated then it indicates the entire mod is updated properly.

 

* Includese Inverted Droid Feat Gain by Hassat Hunter.
** Fixes the feat gain progression of T3 and Goto being swapped around with the feat gain of HK-47. It's correct now, with HK-47 gaining more feats than them rather than less.

 

* Fixed convo break with Nar Shaddaa arrival scene for male players, and fixed requirement check in convo scanning for handmaiden instead of Visas, leaving Disicple's convo options untriggerable.
* Fixed breaking Nar Shaddaa questline by talking to Ratrin before Cahhmakt. This is no longer possible.
* Fixed bug where talking to Cahhmakt with an NPC instead of the player would leave that NPC "locked", unable to join your party.
* Fixed issue on Ebon Hawk with post-Peragus dialogue with Atton not proceeding properly to the Lightsaber dialogue if certain dialogue options were selected.
* Fixed bronze saber turning other saber also bronze when loading a savegame if dual-wielding. (thank Fair Shade for the fix!)
* Fixed Handmaiden's armor not being properly returned to the inventory when dueling on the Ebon Hawk.
* Corrected small issues with Malachor loading screen story hints, like the first being completely blank.
* Included updated k_003ebo_enter.nss and a_next_scene.nss to 003EBO.mod for modmakers, the version included with 1.8 was outdated.
* Fixed Vrook's lightsaber not activating properly in the rebuild enclave. (Thanks Qui Don Jorn)

 

English version;
* Fixed subtitle error; HK when talking about "his whiny allies" subtitles "her whiny allies".
* Fixed Zhug brother mentioning "him" for female PC's on Goto's Yacht.
* On Dantooine right outside the Ebon Hawk, when asking the "Battered Protocol Droid" what it knows specifically of your character, it says "You are on the register as one of the Jedi who left the Enclave to fight in the Mandolorian Wars. Should be spelt "Mandalorian."
* Fixed map note in the HK factory missing it's description.
* Fixed minor typo when clicking on the locked door for the reserved section in the Jekk Jekk Tarr.

 

4. Mod Compatibility:
----------
The following mods are known to have specific install instructions to work properly with TSLRCM 1.8.5

 

* Game Balance Mod by Achilles - ONLY use Autobalance.2da, don't use any of the other files with the mod!!!
* Improved AI by Stoffe (AKA RevanAnt) - While this mod mostly works, it cause some problems with one scene on Nar Shaddaa (you might be unable to select a third teammember during a cutscene and then have to weather some hard battles with just Bao-Dur and Atton).
* Enchanced Merchants by Shem - We've modified many of the merchants, for the modified loot drops and other fixes, which will most likely be undone by using this mod. So be aware of that!
*Kamaitachis Epic Armours - Read the full description to see how to make it properly work with TSLRCM!

 

Mods requiring compatibility patches (check deadlystream for comp patches):
* Handmaiden Choice for Females by Stoffe (AKA RevanAnt)
* Admirality Mod by Jinger (AKA Kreia)
* M4-78 by Stoney - Use M4-78EP instead!
* Slender Female Bodies

 

The following mods are INCOMPATIBLE! Do NOT use these when using TSLRCM 1.8.5!
This is by no means a full list. Mods not listed here can still be incompatible. If you're in doubt, check or ask in our forums!

5. FAQ / KNOWN ISSUES
---------
Q. I am having technical issues with The Sith Lords!
A. Try the Steam forums. Even if you do not possess the game it does contain many threads about issues and their sollutions, a quick search might just find you the answer you need.

 

Q. How do I know TSLRCM is installed? The main screen is unchanged.
A. If the mainscreen is unchanged, TSLRCM isn't installed. Mostly this is related to people installing to the wrong location. Double-check yours (see install instruction #4).

 

Q. Crash when loading a savegame. The loading screen is corrupted by strange lights all over it.
A. Issue with modern Nvidia graphic drivers. NOT caused by TSLRCM. To fix;
In the Nvidia control panel put Threaded Optimization to "OFF" and uncheck the "read-only" property of your KotOR II directory.

 

Q. There are no Handmaidens at the academy/Stuck infront of the Hawk after the Academy.
A. You have overwritten our appearance.2da with an incompatible version of another mod, missing certain key entries needed for TSLRCM to work properly. If you still have the original TSLRCM appearance.2da replace it, otherwise a full re-install of TSLRCM is required.
In both cases a save is needed from before entering the academy.

 

Q. I lost my team at the academy/black screen when entering Ebon Hawk after academy/Atton, Kreia or Bao-Dur don't talk to me when I click them.
A. Sadly, this is a vanilla bug we cannot fix, since the files cannot be de-compiled. It's related to fighting the Handmaiden sisters on the battle mat and "cheating" before they become hostile, giving an error in the script to return your team members. You will have to load a save from before this fight.

 

Q. The screen becomes black when loading the Jedi Masters scene in the Rebuild Enclave
A. This is due to the module using a custom Kreia with special animations for the cutscenes. If any Kreia-altering skins or mods override this, the result is this black screen. Uninstall your Kreia-skin altering mods for the duration of this module...

 

Q. After changing the Ebon Hawk's transponder codes, the Duros scene repeats itself and Goto's Yacht doesn't load.
A. In some rare instances the new globals TSLRCM added aren't added to savegames. This is why we suggest playing a new game. In this case the global for the Duros hasn't been increased by 1, leaving the same cutscene. Enabling the cheatmode in the .ini, then using (without quotes) "warp 351nar" will let you continue on without further issues

 

Q. I cannot spar with the Handmaiden!
A. Due to a bug, sparring with Handmaiden while in outer space (directly after leaving the Telos Academy) made the fight unwinnable. So for TSLRCM you will have to travel to another planet, exit and re-enter for the option to appear, giving a glitch-free sparring. It's not gone, no worries!

 

Q. When the HK Factory loads, I am spawned on Telos as the Exile, instead of as HK-47 / I get a black screen when arriving on Malachor. I use USM.
A. TSLRCM 1.8.5 is not USM compatbile.

 

Q. The game crashes when the Nihilus/Visas or Nihilus/Tobin cutscene loads.
A. Delete n_darthnihilu001.ntc from your override.

 

Q. While in Visquis' lair, when Kreia revives Hanharr, it suddenly turns back to Atton.
A. Delete p_kreia001.utc from your override.

 

Q. Double Atrises during final confrontation/No dialogue after sisters are defeated.
A. Delete the following files from your override, and load a save from before starting the confrontation:
a_atrend2.ncs
a_atrend3.ncs
a_kreatris.ncs
a_sisend.ncs
n_darthtraya001.utc

 

Q. No HK-Torture scene/Missing restored EH-scenes/Get stuck in Ebon Hawk on my way to Malachor.
A. Delete k_003ebo_enter.ncs from your override.

 

Q. Dialogue fast-forwards/cutscenes without sound.
A. Engine issue. Not caused by TSLRCM. Unfortunately, we cannot fix this. May this happen, do a full reboot of the game, and it should work properly again.

 

Q. I have issues with the grass on Dxun/Rebuild Enclave.
A. This appears to be an issue with ATI-videocards. Try using the textures found here;
http://www.lucasforums.com/showpost.php?p=2824280&postcount=14

 

Q. Why haven't you fished the issue on Peragus where you need to lower the difficulty to proceed as T3?
A. This is no issue. Playing on hard you need another way through the door rather than the mine, deleting some goodies in the process. It's not required to lower your difficulty.

 

Q. Does the mod include [x]?
A. Please check our semi-complete inclusion list at:
http://deadlystream.com/forum/topic/139-whats-restored-in-tslrcm/

 

Q. Why did you fix [x], that wasn't a bug, that was a feature.
A. We have a pretty good indication from developer nodes and scripts what is intended and what not. It's very likely that the bug was infact a bug, and never intended. Developers rarely intend to add bugs and exploits to their game...

 

Q. My question is not answered here!
A. Feel free to ask us at our official forum;
http://deadlystream.com/forum/
You can also ask at moddb, but I visit that site less frequent...

8. DISTRIBUTION NOTES
----------
Thanks to DeadlyStream for giving us space on his forums and all the people of the TSL community that helped with bug finding in the beta.
Thanks to tk102 for the dlg editor.
Thank you to the members of Team Gizka for finding out about the missing HK factory modules and all the content that was cut from KotorTSL and making sense of it all, because without all their previous efforts and hard work none of this would be possible.
Thanks to Jdnoa and Dashus for the tools they created for which none of this would be possible without them.
A special thanks to Ulic for his original Peragus mod; while none of his work or files were used in our fixing of Peragus, a lot of his ideas and “how” things were changed were the inspiration for how we tackled them. His list of fixed stuff in the readme helped too! :D

@MSmart19 Try to turning off Frame Buffer Effects.

I figured it out. It straight up just didn't install. What was causing the crashing was the "High Quality Blasters" mod. I installed it before, but I can't seem to get it to work this time. Can you help?

In my last Playthrough I had the same problem and it  was provoked -at least in my case- by a MOD called 'Restored equipment for HK-47 GO-TO - TSL 1.1.0', installed while I was still in Peragus.

I estimate that mod placed a file named (or named similar) "HK-50.utc" or something, a file like that is used extensively during the game and if it is inside the override it'd break every NPC with the tag "HK-50" for example.


What is sadder, yet beneficial for you, is that the restored items are restored in TSLRCM and M4-78EP.

Question Please?   Is  the fix below included in the latest version of TSLRCM? 1.86?  If so I will remove it from being downloaded but wanted to be sure first as I just realized so many updates to my TSL game.  I am glad I didn't install it on this computer yet.  Just let me know please and I would be grateful

You did install MTSLRCM, right? The Mobile compatible version of TSLRCM?

 

 

This link is called the "Mobile The Sith Lord's restored Content Mod", this version is exactly the same as this mod except MTSLRCM is designed to be run on Mobile devices. This mod, however, is designed for PC players.

i could and can run TSLpatcher successfully by creating or copying the dialog.tlk file into any folder and installing any mods in said folder then copy the mods into the mobile. Yes i have tried the TSLRCM mobile version but the mobile version lacks many "restored" contents like the militia fighting Mercs in Dantooine, the long conversation between Kreia and Companions in Malacor V among other "restored" contents. The mobile version has quite some contents missing. If those contents are placed in the mobile version i would be more than happy to use the TSLRCM mobile version

p.s. i have finished the mobile version and i do remember vividly that there were contents missing so just to be sure i installed the TSLRCM pc version on the mobile. 
Youtuber Negative Zero shows how to install TSLpatcher mods without needing the actual Kotor on PC. i have installed several mods on Kotor1 using the same technique, epsecially mods that are conversions or such and have not faced problems regarding compatibility or otherwise. Also i added several mods while using the TSLRCM mobile version and it didnt have any problems and i was able to finish the game too but it didnt have the many restored content in the mobile version.

May you clarify "what" content is missing from the MTSLRCM mod that TSLRCM has?

I am not familiar with MTSLRCM I'm afraid.

okay here goes.


Khoonda battle in Dantooine: In the TSLRCM pc version we get to fight outdoors first and then get inside the Administrator building, but in the mobile version we directly skip to the indoors.

Dantooine: The thief dialogues are missing and she doesnt have a voice. There are some npcs with no voice like this.

Malacor V: The part where Atton and the others get together to fight Kreia but fail miserably. This is completely absent in the mobile version.

Nar Shaada: The Telos Fuel quest cannot be completed in the Mobile version Even if you complete all tasks 

There are few minor scenes missing but they are not necessary but i feel like these are the major scenes missing in the mobile version

sure no problem And please do clarify with others regarding the mobile version but as far as i know those things are missing. And another thing, the cutscene causes the game to crash. Im talking about the Peragus cutscenes that occurs outside the peragus fuel station. i had to delete all the RCM movies to prevent it from crashing and it occurs regardless of the PC or Mobile version

Khoonda battle in Dantooine: In the TSLRCM pc version we get to fight outdoors first and then get inside the Administrator building, but in the mobile version we directly skip to the indoors.

So I assume that once you give the speech to the soldiers, you see this BIK cutscene movie and it teleports inside the Admin building?

 

 

I am 98% sure the reason for this choice.

 

It is said that, if Obsidian published the full game TSL in February 2005 this Battle of Khoonda cut content in which the player fights outside was still going to be cut. Why, you might ask? Well, this fight allegedly caused massive amounts of lag for the game on the original XBOX Console editions of the game. So technically, this feature was going to be cut regardless.

 

My theory is that, while the Battle of Khoonda fight works like a charm on modern PCs, this may not entirely be the case for Mobile devices especially older models. Let's just assume you played Battle of Khoonda via TSLRCM on Mobile and it didn't lag, let's assume you have the latest model of Galaxy Samsung phone which is probably going to be powerful enough to run this game no problem... but do keep in mind, that is just your experience, whilst you may play the Battle of Khoonda on your Mobile device perfectly, another user on an old iOS device might lag horribly or crash.

 

Mobile isn't exactly as unified as PC rendition's of this game, so developers of MTSLRCM have to deal with features of TSLRCM which work on PC, work on Android but crash on iOS. Once they fix the crash on iOS, they can ignore PC since PC uses TSLRCM and not MTSLRCM, but then another user reports the exact same crash on Android because of the bug fix done for iOS. That's the situation I am picturing for MTSLRCM for maintaining the mod, it's a bit rough at the moment as obviously the mobile port appeared out of the blue and as such so did MTSLRCM.

 

The Battle of Khoonda in particular could probably never be optimized for Mobile anyway. The reason why it lags so much on the XBOX and Mobile is that XBOX was a weak console which physically couldn't run the Battle at a smooth frame rate and Mobile devices made in the 2010s was never the intended platform for TSL to begin with.

 

Picture this, the game has to render the Khoonda plains module, that is easy, keep in mind, the game will need to render Khoonda's water river and grass effects which even some PCs can barely render properly.

 

About 10 Khoonda Militia NPCs spawn into the module, followed by 20 to 30 Merc's all around the player (these Mercs would be the first NPCs to render), each Merc projects a shadow onto the ground which means about 20 to 30 additional shadows are being rendered before the player, each Merc has scripts attached to them like "heartbeat" which tells them what to do, they are not only hostile to the player but also to the 10 Khoonda militia plus Zherron (These militia and Zherrun also have shadows and scripts attached), the NPC's AI needs to target an NPC to attack which means the Mercs need to decide to attack the Party or the militia NPCs, each Merc NPC is either wielding a Double Vibrosword or a Blaster Rifle which means the game now has to render Blaster bolts being fired between the militia and Mercs, Khoonda militia dual wield pistols meaning each militia fires double blaster bolts, certain Mercs with melee weapons rush the player or the militia forcing the militia to fire scripts to activate melee weapons, the game needs to register the damage being done to each militia and Merc, the game needs to register the Merc attacks done to the Party, the player's Party AI needs to determine which Merc to attack and what feats they shall use.

 

Let's assume that Battle of Khoonda lags your game out and maybe crashes it, what I listed out is the reason why it lags and crashes. If your Mobile device didn't lag, that just means you have a good Mobile device.

 

Having less features may not be fun but it's better for the mod developer's to cut the feature out entirely so that these modder's don't have to spend hours optimizing one specific feature to function across 50 different mobile devices. Would it be better to not experience the Battle of Khoonda or would you rather have a Battle of Khoonda with 2 Khoonda Militia, Zherron and 5 Mercs in a lame fight? That sounds dumb as hell, but the dev's would have to do that to ensure the mod works lag free across ALL Mobile devices.

 

Remember, MTSLRCM dev's would be lucky to have a single Mobile device to Beta test MTSLRCM with, they probably need to test MTSLRCM with many different brands of Mobile device from Android, iOS and more etc in order to properly test it. As such, I reckon community feedback who reports the MTSLRCM bugs to the devs is probably the only way updates and bug fixes can be made considering the dev's probably develop and test this mod on PC anyway as I'm not even sure if they even own a Mobile device (I could be wrong on that).

 

Spoiler

You've watched Negative Zero, right?

He did a Brotherhood of Shadow let's play on Mobile K1, remember how it broke? That was because the module he attempted to enter contained too many NPCs and features for a Mobile device to handle, it completely crashed his game. He had to modify Brotherhood of Shadow to replace the broken module with the next module to allow him to progress the mod.

 

This scenario is similar to that! If Battle of Khoonda was in Mobile, it would probably break just like Brotherhood of Shadow!

Also remember, both Brotherhood of Shadow and Battle of Khoonda work flawlessly on their intended platform, the PC. So it's entirely the Mobile's fault not being able to run these things I'm afraid.

 

What do you think about this?

Dantooine: The thief dialogues are missing and she doesnt have a voice. There are some npcs with no voice like this.

I'm not sure about Mobile TSL, but I know that on Mobile K1 all custom audio files added to K1 via mod's do not work.

 

If you watch Negative Zero's Brotherhood of Shadow playthrough's, the audio for that mod is silent as well. On PC, Kaevae the thief had no VO so TSLRCM hired an actor to create custom audio for her. Just like the Battle of Khoonda, the Thief DOES work perfectly on PC as intended, however, as you can see, it does not work that great on Mobile. 

 

If you are capable of installing this mod, this will remove Kaevee the thief and restore the vanilla questline where Jorran is the thief back into your TSLRCM game. I have not tested it on Mobile so do be cautious!

I cannot justify why this is absent, maybe it simply does not work for some reason. But I'm afraid I cannot find a reason why this wouldn't work I'm afraid.

Ok, that 100% sounds like a bug!

 

I hope you found this to be useful, feel free to ask me questions.

You've watched Negative Zero, right?

He did a Brotherhood of Shadow let's play on Mobile K1, remember how it broke? That was because the module he attempted to enter contained too many NPCs and features for a Mobile device to handle, it completely crashed his game. He had to modify Brotherhood of Shadow to replace the broken module with the next module to allow him to progress the mod.

 

This scenario is similar to that! If Battle of Khoonda was in Mobile, it would probably break just like Brotherhood of Shadow!

Also remember, both Brotherhood of Shadow and Battle of Khoonda work flawlessly on their intended platform, the PC. So it's entirely the Mobile's fault not being able to run these things I'm afraid.

 

What do you think about this?

 

I'm not sure about Mobile TSL, but I know that on Mobile K1 all custom audio files added to K1 via mod's do not work.

 

If you watch Negative Zero's Brotherhood of Shadow playthrough's, the audio for that mod is silent as well. On PC, Kaevae the thief had no VO so TSLRCM hired an actor to create custom audio for her. Just like the Battle of Khoonda, the Thief DOES work perfectly on PC as intended, however, as you can see, it does not work that great on Mobile. 

 

If you are capable of installing this mod, this will remove Kaevee the thief and restore the vanilla questline where Jorran is the thief back into your TSLRCM game. I have not tested it on Mobile so do be cautious!

 

 

I cannot justify why this is absent, maybe it simply does not work for some reason. But I'm afraid I cannot find a reason why this wouldn't work I'm afraid.

 

Ok, that 100% sounds like a bug!

 

I hope you found this to be useful, feel free to ask me questions.

Thanks for replying and yes you do make sense about the limitations of mobile gaming. I do understand that the mod could have been made into a more compatible. This game did came out last year and I am using a Poco F1 device which has the Snapdragon 845 chip. Just to clarify, I did try playing the game on my Redmi Note 4 which uses a much weaker chip but it ran fine when I played kotor1 with improved texture mods and even kotor2 with various mods (I didn't use the HD textures but like those improved effects kind). From my experience phones these days are pretty powerful. Even the mid range ones. So I think the creator of the mobile version should give us the option to have either the 'full" experience or the "lite" experience of the tslrcm. 

 

And I didn't watch all the videos of Negative Zero regarding the mobile versions and didn't know about the audio limitations and his phone/game crashes. Thank you for clarifying those. 

 

And yes about the telos fuel quest. I hope they come up with an update of this file rectifying that error. I mainly downloaded the pc version and installed them only due to absence of above mentioned scenes and quest bugs. 

 

Thank you for taking your time to explain. I'll try to check where the telos quest is located in the pc version and try to port it to mobile. Hopefully ill be able to find it through kotor tool. 

 

P. S. I forgot to mention that the thief voice works when I use the tslrcm pc version on my mobile. I'll try to override those audios to my mobile and check.

why does the loading screen show 1.8.5 and not 1.8.6??? i downloaded from this site and its showing that . And i am stuck here. The doors wont open. I am playing it on a mobile

I installed 1.8.6 on Windows and the loading screen says 1.8.5, as well. I'm guessing it was never updated, because the included Read Me file is versioned 1.8.6.

OP,  your description says "Program Files (x86)" folder is supposedly "64 bit" and "Program files" is "32 bit".   That is incorrect as in reality it's the other way around.  I.e.  (x86) means 32 bit.

It means the default location for the install in a 64 bit system is the "(X86)" folder. That folder doesn't exist on 32 bit Operating systems since everything is X86, so the folder is just "C:\"
