DESCRIPTION:

 

BASTILA GLITCH FIX PROPER
This mini-mod fixes a long-known glitch in Kotor 1 which results in obliterating the romance with Bastila Shan. I updated some files and checked the scripts for version 2. This is supposed to be the final version of this simple glitch fix.

 


HELENA SHAN HOTFIX
This mod also fixes a major bug which has been introduced by another mod, the "Quest for TK102's Birthday Party". This mod MAY cause Helena Shan, Bastila's mother to never appear in the whole game. If you encounter problems, just use the "Helena Shan Hotfix". Now go to the Tatooine Cantina and talk to the barkeeper. He'll tell you, Helena was a regular customer - and spawn her for you to talk to.
[Alternatively, there is a more elegant solution: Download and install the excellent mod "Brotherhood of Shadows" AND the Patch 1.06 (essential) on top of TK102-Quest. Then use the files from the Resource folder of this mod.]

 

INSTALLATION:
There are three folders here.

 

1) Drag and drop the files from the OVERRIDE folder into your game directory's Override folder. This is the glitch fix. Now, you're basically done.

 

2) If you encounter problems meeting Helan Shan in the Cantina on Tatooine, after the quest has triggered with Bastila and Malare, you may use the "Helena Shan Hotfix". Now you are able to talk to Junix, the barkeeper, to have Helena Shan meet you ASAP.

 

3) The Resources. This contains resources for modders as well as files to ensure compatibility with other mods.
a) Master Kavar's "Female Revan Untold Love Story". If you have this mod, use the file for your own Override folder. If you use it you will encounter some issues. There are omissions from the original dialogue with Bastila, and all animations and camera angles have been completely deleted. This is due to a bug with an earlier version of the dialogue editor.
B) "The Brotherhood of Shadow" and "Quest for TK102's Birthday". If you have both mods, use the files from this folder. If you've got only the Brotherhood, use none. If you've got only TK102's Birthday party, then - I think - you may still use these files (the "contact" from the Brotherhood mod just won't appear, and that's it). But the latter has not been tested.
c) Unaltered files from the game to investigate how the romance has been made up by Bioware.
d) Documentation of the glitch fix serving as a small introduction to scripting as well.

 

Enjoy.

 

BUGS: None encountered, yet. The common strategy for players to avoid the glitch has been not to talk to Bastila again after kissing her. This has, of course, the same effect as removing the script attached to the dialogue - i.e. it does not change anything compared to the strategy of not talking to Basty. If there are issues, just mail me.

From the original review at FileFront:

 

"When I saw the user name Darth Shan, I cant help but think of Bastila because Bastila's last name is Shan. To me the name tells me that the author is a fan of Bastila Shan. Not that it is abnormal because lets face it, there are a lot of Bastila Shan fans out there. The biggest reason is because so many men out there think Bastila is hot.

So when playing the original Knights of the Old Republic, most men love to play as a male PC because you have the opportunity to develop a romance with Bastila. If you play your cards right, you can go to a private area of the Ebon Hawk to have a kiss with Bastila. Ironically in the sequel, Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, very area where you can kiss Bastila is where Kreia sits in the Ebon Hawk to meditate.

The problem with KOTOR after you kiss Bastila is not to ask what happened between yourselves because of a game bug. It makes it seem like your kiss and Bastila falling in love with you never happened. The biggest evidence of that is when you confront Bastila on top of the Rakatan Temple. If the romance quest happened, it's possible to even have her offer herself to be your lover if you join the dark side. So that bug can really be annoying when you don't get that option, right? It was one of the things as playing multiple times that I figured out and knew that talking to Bastila wasn't worth it after kissing her on the Ebon Hawk. Well, Darth Shan is putting an end to it by fixing that annoying part so give him a hand for that.

He also is using my Helena mod, who is Bastilas mother in it. That quest is needed in order to complete the romance quest. Also hes using parts of Master Kavar's Untold Love Story mod, all used with permission to have some enhancement to his mod. Overall, this all sounds very fun. Enjoy!

Note: Please leave the author feedback, especially if you download this mod and use it. It really helps encourage the author to make more mods in the future.
