    As I mentioned last time, I was going to tweak the Tatooine skybox some more even though I had considered it almost done quite some time ago. The reason for that was that I had never been able to really match the skybox lighting and sand color to the ingame terrain. I had come closer with V2 than in my initial release but I wasn't really happy with it yet, so it had been on my agenda to go back and fix that. You can see that in the following image. As you can see the shadow parts of the dunes are way too dark so they don't blend with the foreground terrain at all. So I set out to fix that and now, approximately a hundred iterations later I finally arrived at a result I'm happy with. The lighting in the game is very cheaty with several different light sources creating that yellow-orange-ish light, making it impossible to replicate that with two suns and a uniform sandcolor as I had it in the skybox. I considered changing the ingame lighting for a while but that didn't turn out any good so in the end I just cheated myself. I added a third sun that lights only the ground and recolored individual parts of the sand dunes to get the correct colors in every direction. It took a lot of iterations but now I'm really happy with the result. While doing so I also realised that the skybox terrain didn't match the ingame one either. You can kinda see that on the screenshot above although it was more obvious in other places that the skybox dunes were just too small. So I widened those as well. That cause issues with the overcomplicated and unflexible way the terrain was set up. This was after all the very first terrain I ever created in Terragen and hasn't really changed much since then. So I basically rebuilt the terrain. You don't see that in the end result but it's working much better now. But I guess that's enough talk from me and you want to see some screenshots. So here you go: It's the same perspective as before but the terrain and skybox blend much better. And just for fun, here's another screenshot: That's another skybox checked off and thus almost finishing K1. Only Manaan underwater and a few fixes here and there remain.

    Hi everyone. Sorry to the mods for the double posting and I hope the screenshots are not to much. So before we start a short update: Now witness the firepower of this fully armed and operational batch station. So yeah I learned batch a little which helped producing the progress. In order to give an overview: All saber hilts are updated by hilts from @Kaidon Jorn SLM 2.0 mod (I love it!) All credits for the hilt models and textures and icons go fully to him! Update for Kaidon Jorn's: Revan's Tor Saber 1.1 to use the new blades Ambient light for lightsabers 3d models for blade core and inner glow symmetric lightsaber blade planes with a modifed version of @Sithspecter crossguard saber UV layout. (in principle compatible with his unstable textures) black core sabers are possible homogeneous brightness of the blade (no more brighter blades when viewed from the front) all sabers are fully upgradeable (added black core crystal) (Cross guard are updateable but don't have a unique crystal yet.) Now to the to do: Need permission from Sithspecter to use th UVs. I only modified them but he created them so I need his permission. I hope you are all right man! Need Icons for the crossguard saber Test: Someone to test the .uti with the english version of the game (I am only owning the german version) Test the K1 version at some point in the future Hope that some talented texture artist is willing to update my blade textures with good ones Possible update with a full set of unstable saber blades if Sithspecter gives the permission to also use his beautiful animated textures. Known Bugs: The tip of the blade has a spike which comes from a deformation of the lightsaber planes. This is also present in the original model. I was not able to find a fix sorry. The lightsaber hilts will peak through the blades. (See some posts before. DarthParametric sad it is not possible to fix it.)

    So, I've wanted to implement this idea for a while now, but only just recently actually started to do it. A module builder of sorts, that creates semi-unique areas by letting the user piece together areas that already exist in game to create their own layouts. This will allow everyone, including those without the slightest modding experience do design a layout of an area and export it to the game in a matter minutes. There is still a lot of work to be done but the basics of placing rooms, snapping them together and exporting the corresponding MDL/MDX/LYT is implemented. Here is an example of the program in its current state in action: Ultimately the goal would be to have most existing interior areas in both KotOR and TSL to be implemented into this. A list of areas include: Sith Base Black Vulkar and Hidden Bek bases Undercity Sewers Devik's Estate Sandral Estate/Khoonda Dantooine Academy and its Sublevels Korriban Academy/Tombs Endar Spire/Harbinger Leviathan Peragus Telos Residential Area Telos Military Base Telos Academy Nar Shadaa Iziz Palace Trayus Academy Hrakert Station And of course there is always the possibly of custom user-made content. The main issue is that settings up the rooms for use does take time, so depending on interest I might not do all of them. Currently I have been using the Sith Base as you can see from the screenshots above. The biggest issue is none of the rooms in the game follow a specific size convention, so in most cases, if you try set up a module that has a circuit, It probably won't align properly. Features that I plan on implementing include: Exporting with doors. Have each door frame have a door and doors which don't go anywhere should be unselectable. Exporting a minimap. This would include settings up the appropriate values in an .ifo file so there is zero setup required. Export as a MOD file, so no setup required to get them to run in game. Export textures/lightmaps with a custom prefix to allow user's to easily retexture areas that won't interfere with other existing modules. Export any area as K1 or TSL models. Allow the user to set up rooms to transitions to other modules. Some kind of intuitive and simple UI that allows players to configure the VIS file. More as I go a long. This development of course has not gone smoothly, here is a list of frustrations I noted down if you an be bothered to read them: Both the MDL and WOK files contain the walkmesh data, which seems redundant. The MDL walkmesh handles grass and camera-blocking whereas the WOK walkmesh handles actual movement and pathfinding. AFIAK both share identical geometry. I imagine this is because of certain precomputed values stored in it that change when the model shifts? The WOK ignores the position of the room in the LYT. Changing the coordinates in the LYT will shift the MDL but not the WOK. So this means the vertices in the WOK need to be manually shifted. Because of this, bounding boxes on the AABB need to be moved and face normals need to be updated. Some values which im not even sure what they are may need to be changed as well (place distances/most significant plane)? The LYT lacks any rotation property for room entries. The orientation property in the node header for MDLs doesn't do anything, even when controllers aren't present, so I'm not sure why this exists. Maybe a remnant from NWN format or the console version? The root node in MDL doesn't come with any controllers at all, I should probably check if MDLEdit is capable of this if the ascii file is modified correctly. My work around to this is to child a dummy node onto the root and have that node parent everything else. I use this node to rotate the entire model. Rooms either come with a full doorframe, or none at all, meaning I have to edit each room to have half-doorframes to make them universally compatible with all the other rooms of the same door type. More of an inconvenience than anything else really. In order two connect rooms, the geometric edge on both rooms as to 'point' to the other room's index in the LYT file. This means I have to use a combination of KAurora and MDLEdit to figure out the index of the edge that my program has to edit on export. Its an very tiresome task. There is some bug in KotORBlender that if I export an MDL then delete one of the objects, then export it again an error occurs because the object is missing. Sigh. Of course its missing, I deleted it. A quick work around is just to copy all the model into a new .blend file and export that instead. This tool is not intended to be a full fledged module editor but mainly for building an area which can be edited using some other tool. That said it will be incorporated with my All-in-one toolset (WIP) but I will most release a stand alone as well. I'm also open to name suggestions if anyone. I do also want to try create a terrain editor as well. This hypothetical tool (exteriors) would compliment the one I just talked about (interiors). I'd imagine it would have some kind of "cliffs" ability that would mimic the walls that shape modules the same of what you see on the surfaces Dantooine/Dxun/Telos. You would further be able to detail the landscape with objects such as trees/rocks. It would be technical challenge, but I'm definitely going to take a stab at it. For now, that about covers it all.

    Introduction The audio files of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II – The Sith Lords (KOTOR) contain extra headers of what seem to be superfluous data that obfuscate access to the original audio outside of the video games. Most audio software will refuse to open the files, or interpret the extra bytes as audio data, leading to glitches. It has also been observed anecdotally that files lacking an appropriate header may fail to playback in certain releases of the games. SithCodec is an application that can automatically detect and remove an extraneous header from a KOTOR audio file, or alternatively prepend a KOTOR header to a standard audio file and allow for the introduction of new audio content to these games. Running SithCodec SithCodec requires Windows (32-bit or 64-bit). Make sure to extract SithCodec to a folder where you have read & write permission. The code is not signed (because code signing costs an extortionate amount of money) so your firewall may warn you about running an unrecognized application.

    Never mind . . . I think I found the original mod but someone else will have to test it. Here's a link.

    At last, at LONG last! K1GI has been updated. For me its currently May 5th but for those in the United States its still May the 4th so consider this my "May the 4th" gift to you. This update and any following updates shall primarily focus on 'filling in the gaps' of any modules I have missed thus far. Once that's done I will work on the Star Forge and hopefully finish the Demo stage and move onto Beta. This particular update which has just been released also fixes most of the bugs you guys have reported, too many bugs for my liking but they've all been fixed. However, as my free time is getting crushed harder than Jabba's Rancor it has been getting difficult to properly test and create content for K1GI so please play the latest patch with a keen eye for any bugs (this includes old bugs which might not be fixed or any new bugs which have been added in the new content). For those who'll play the mod I hope you guys have fun after the long wait.

    The rules were recently changed to allow ports between K1 and TSL. If you are porting vanilla heads, that's fine, but the rules still forbid porting other people's mods without express permission.

    Here's another one: Manaan underwater The biggest change compared to V1 is that there is no longer a ceiling where my texture doesn't work at all. So you can use the free camera all you want and it will look good. I also changed the blending of the lightrays as well as their animation so they work better now. The rotation is now slower than in vanilla, there's less color banding than in V1 and the blue background has a very subtle animation as well. The latter is hard to see on the texture, harder to see ingame and probably impossible to see with Youtube compression. But it's there and makes the background less static. Please let me know what you think. If any changes are necessary I have to make them this week before my After Effects trial license expires. I also rendered some more lightning textures for Telos to test this idea with some more variation. I'm honestly undecided on whether or not I like it, so please let me know what you think.

    It was suggested to me that I release some of my fixes separately from my main project. This happens to me every time I play the game and while playing again for testing purposes this annoyed me so I changed it. This mod just moves a mercenary at the Czerka Site which almost always causes one of the companions to go running off after a battle, I find it incredibly annoying, especially after fighting your way through the minefields, turrets, droids and mercenaries.

    DESCRIPTION This is an HD reskin of our driven mandalorian, Mandalore. This texture is now 2048x2048, A.I. and manually-upscaled and incorporating downloaded textures. I constantly checked my work against the 3D model to ensure there were no texture seams. I made sure to remain as faithful to the original texture as possible while adding a few details of my own. INSTALLATION Click the "Start Patching" button down below. UNINSTALLATION Move the files from the newly created "backup" folder to the KotORII "override" folder. THANKS Thanks to GIMP, wildtextures.com, Blender, KotORTool, KotORBlender, mdlops, and the KotOR Savegame editor. Special thanks to Red11BY for his Character Overhaul pack (https://www.nexusmods.com/kotor2/mods/1060?tab=files). Mod by tjsase.

    Hello there, I'm kind of new here with this being my first post but I have had this account for some years now and I also did some modding to this game back in summer 2015. Now I have been messing around with the new tools and I was interested in KotorBlender to create new animations since that's the program I recently learned for modding Jedi Academy as well and I am quite comfortable with it now. So my intention was to create new facial animations but I wasn't sure of the capabilities this plugin offered. I was quite glad when I found out that it has been recently updated and it fully supports animations as well as other models properties. But when I imported a head I was quite surprised to see that the bones in this game are not really bones like Jedi Academy for example but objects that act like such. Thus, I couldn't attach them to the mesh to see how it deformed when trying to create an animation. So I tried creating a temporary bone rig in blender that you could use and attach each bone to each object so that when you move a bone the object also moves. This may seem like it's working on paper but I had so much trouble with transforms that I almost gave up. They are a real pain in the ass. First I tried animating the bones and the objects apparently move with them but in reality they are not changing their transforms. So I tried to copy and paste them from the bones and it seemed to work in the program but in game the face was a total mess. This was because the objects were taking the absolute transforms of the bones that were in a different position that the objects are. What appears to be working in the program has nothing to do with the game and viceversa. So I just parented them and even though the objects would jump to a weird location their transforms would remain untouched as you can see in a test animation I made here: So now how do I transfer the bone movements to the objects? I tried a thing in blender called Delta transforms. This are like offset transforms that only take into consideration the relative location and rotation of an object. This was very useful in a parent/child scenario like this because now I had the original objects location/rotation + the relative transforms of the bones. Unfortunately when I tried it in game it did nothing, probably because the plugin only reads the absolute transforms, the delta transforms are stored in a different field. So I couldn't use this approach. Can the KotorBlender plugin be updated to support delta transforms? It would be really useful and nobody would have to do what I'm about to say for it to work. I needed to somehow transfer those delta transforms to the absolute transforms so that the plugin could read them. There is a function in blender called "all transforms to deltas" that transfers all the absolute transforms to the delta fields and left the absolute ones to zero which is exactly the opposite of what I need. I need to transfer this absolute+relative transforms that I have in the delta fields to the absolute fields. Luckily I found a script that did exactly this but I had to this for every single keyframe which is extremely exhausting and time-consuming. If someone here knows how to code on python can you do a script that does this automatically? It wouldn't be that bad then. So after thousands headaches I finally got it to work in-game: You can also see that the model has those wrongly shaded faces around the jaw. Anybody knows how to fix that? I saw other people having the same issue but I'm not sure how to fix it. I decompiled and compiled the model with MDLOps 1.0.0 since MDLEdit was giving a lot of problems. The point of all these is that you can make a facial animation with a dummy mesh so you can see how it looks without having to load it every single time in game. But I don't know if this is a worth approach with all these problems, if you solve one of those two though then it really is at least for me. I just wanted to share this knowledge to people who may be interested in this or don't know the extension of this plugin. Now I just need to learn animated cameras for the machinima I'm trying to make, does anyone have any tips/tools/tutorials that I could use? Would be really appreciated. Sorry for the long post. And thanks for keeping this community alive!

    Version 1.8.5

    75,923 downloads

    Authors: Zbyl2, DarthStoney, Hassat Hunter & VarsityPuppet Contact: PM us at Deadlystream Name: The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod (TSLRCM) 1.8.5 1. Description: ---------- Welcome. Thank you for downloading and installing TSLRCM 1.8.5. 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. http://deadlystream.com/forum/ http://www.moddb.com/mods/the-sith-lords-restored-content-mod-tslrcm 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. http://deadlystream.com/forum/forum/4-tslrcm/ 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 1.8.5. (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. 3.1 Changelist 1.8.4 Updated - 1.8.5 ---------- * Added persuasion animation (Thanks to danil_ch for noticing and providing a semi-complete list of locations of all force persuasions) * Resolved some AR_Error generation with easter egg background and robes. * Fixed T3 skipped dialogue fix getting broken when fixing Steam dialogue being skipped. * Removed excess dlg's and stuff from 307NAR (only used for Zhug scenes), drastically reducing it's size. * (English version) Fixed Revan disrepency in HK-47 dialogue (Thanks to danil_ch for noticing and the VO splices) * Pre-Malachor: Resolved Handmaiden being present even if she left with Kreia to Malachor. Resolved silent Mandalore line. * Visas sparring: Fixed Weapon Focus: Lightsaber being skipped during reward section. For the english version it now shows what Feat you've gained (if any). * Fixed graphical glitches in cutscenes using widescreen resolutions. * Atris/Kreia convo intro improved as per gameplay developer comments * Telos Academy: Fixed some minor issues with a cutscene (Thanks to danil_ch) * Activated dormant placeable in the Telos Academy. (Thanks to JCarter426 for finding the inactive placeable) * HK Factory: You can no longer trigger HK-50 cutscenes by loading a savegame. Removed dead HK-50 to avoid confusion. * Force Persuading Terlyn will no longer require persuasion skill to succeed. * Onderon Wall: Restored missing Bostuco line, made Royalist single line bark rather than cutscene, fixed minor lipsync issues with Vaklu in palace cutscene. * Trying to (Force) persuade the thug after killing Riiken will now net a dark side gain regardless of success or failure. * Restored Patto line, removed HK part from Akkare store since storespawn was fixed and was already generating a part, leading to him having 2 instead of the intended 1. * Ralon: If you have Kreia and Handmaiden/Disciple they can now both comment on the fabled holocron line. * Malachor Core: Fixed Kreia repeated line by actually intended line. * Touched up Visquis call cutscene. (thanks to Danil_ch) * Fixed several missing awareness and persuasion checks. * Fixed broken T3 interaction with the "meet and greet" droids on Dantooine. 3.2 Changelist 1.8.3B - 1.8.4 ---------- * Restored Remote's SFX that was removed by the official 1.0b patch. After 10+ years; it's back! Poor guy! * 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 * First Bao-Dur/Remote cutscene now requires G0-T0 *or* HK-47, not both. This also means you can get the 3rd cutscene and following cutscenes (including the important one about G0-T0 and Remote) without building HK-47 * Fixed Remote "complaining" sound sticking around when it should not * Fixed 2 civilians who were lacking their animations in the Telos Cantina * Benoks goons will now always properly leave the cantina * Various fixes for the Telos Academy: ** Fixed some unskippable lines during intro-dialogue ** Fixed inproper fadeout during intro that showed character jump ** Modified Atris entrance ** Fixed a few issues with handmaidens removing PC ** Modified Atris exit * Fixed small issue with door's windows not being see-through in the Coruscant sequence, hiding the PC and Masters until it was opened (Thanks to JCarter426 for the fix!) * Modified JJT Tunnel sequences if Mira joins the party * Fixed issue with leftover enemy in arena during ending cutscenes * Various fixes with the Mandalorian Battle Ring: ** You will now hear what your violation was before being banned from the Battle Ring for cheating twice ** Fixed auto-win against Kex due to victory flag not resetting after the Davrel battle ** Fixed "no item" rule being in effect for the Bralor fight for male PC's. Battle functioned properly already for females * Added 2 missing Sith to Vaklu palace sequence who triggered a small cutscene * Leaving Dantooine at the endgame cutscenes did not run for male players. Made them skippable in all cases * Added missing animation at start of Disciple cutscene (to match Visas scene) * Slightly improved Disciple warning Admiral cutscene * Added missing "lipsync" (eye flashing) for HK-Factory * 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 * Moved DS hit for Slavery from Cahmakt to getting your payment in the cantina. This to prevent the rare issue of this hit triggering the Nihilus intro and getting the player stuck. * Fixed crashing issue if you try to enter the Telos Surface Shuttle with Atton or Kreia. * Fixed Peragus Medical Officer speaking the station warning using the Workshop download. * Added missing installer files: Heads.2da, Movies.2da and Musictable.2da * Fixed "double Sion" bug by undoing changes to .ncs (this is the vanilla file). Moved "Elite Sith" further back so it wont ignore you. Fixed Sion lipsyncing Kreia. * Corrected Suulru having the vanilla dialogue attached to him rather than the 1.8.4 version. * Corrected red X missing texture being visible in Tobin call pre-Freedon Nadd's tomb. * Resized TSLRCM logo and hyperspace texture. This should fix several (framerate) issues certain configurations had with them. * Added eye-flashing of HK's to all HK-50 encounters. * Fixed infinite lightside and Atton influence exploit in the Telos Academy. * Fixed an issue where some subtitles wouldn't appear in Peragus holograms for non-English version of the game. Additional fixes thanks to Danil-ch; * Wrong Atton animation fix post-Peragus cutscene * Fixed too fast walking Sion on Peragus and Malachor * Improved Handmaiden vs. sisters intro-cutscene * Fixed animation issue with Atris using Force Lightning on Handmaiden 3.3 Changelist 1.8.3 - 1.8.3B ---------- * Additional restored lines for Kreia-Atris cutscene. * Modified Mebla slightly; you can play again after 'asking questions' but you can no longer ask questions after getting her tie breaker. * Telos Swoopracing; Traininglap persuasioncheck no longer automatically succeeds. Fixed trainingrun-dialogue not being properly triggered. Fixed several issues with 'improved' or 'deproved' time recognition. * Fixed Lupo not giving credits properly after teammates comment on your Force Persuasion use (my bad). * HK-50's will no longer appear and then fade away if HK-47 is in your party when going to Goto's Yacht (Thanks Markus Ramikin) * Losing to Bralor, then winning he would still incorrectly comment you can fight again (Thanks Markus Ramikin) * Persuading Qimtiq once does no longer guarantee 500 bonus credits per win permanently, you need to re-convince him before each race. * Missing VO addded to installer. * Fixed the "forfeit" Swooprace-bug. * Added proper camerapoints to modified tutorial dialogues. * Improved Azkul-Merc conversation after invading Khoonda (Merc side) (by danil-ch) * You will now start with Force Breath active upon learning it in the JJT/fixed flourish animation (by danil-ch) * Savegames made during the Atton vs. Sion confrontation on Malachor will no longer crash on loading. * Added missing lightsaber equipped fix (by danil-ch) that made the game also check the off-hand for a lightsaber and detect it. * Modified Mira technique teaching slightly. 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 ) * 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!

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... 6.

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.

    0.8.3 Experimental Files for the Expanded Galaxy Project now feature demo levels of the Endar Spire. The video is outdated and the levels are now 99% functional / can be played through, I suggest starting a new game, skipping the prologue and then warping to "end_m01aa" In the future I might work on more levels, I found deconstructing and rebuilding these levels to be a really fun experience. I also think that they play and feel a lot better.

    Summary In Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, the player, like all party members, would occasionally say things during combat and when performing other actions. In the second game, however, the player is mute. This mod restores the player soundset for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords. The critical files needed for the original player soundset to function were actually always there, but they were in various states of disuse. This mod fixes them up and restores the player's voice. There are different soundsets for male and female players and they are the same ones as in the first game. Installation Run Player_Soundset_Restoration.exe. Uninstallation Remove the installed files. Compatibility This mod must be installed before any mods that patch soundset.2da. This mod does not use TSLPatcher to patch soundset.2da; it uses a hard 2DA install because the exact line numbers are necessary for the player soundset to work. It feels dirty, but I have to do it.

    So just to give you all an update on the documentary . . . @DarthVarkor has been making very nice videos for use in the documentary. Those videos will both be released separately complete (with one minor exception by request of the contributor) and excerpts of the videos will be in the documentary itself. DV has made a few of these videos so far. (I've shared DV's videos using each contributor's audio back to the each contributor. For the time being though, DV is going to be busy until his own project premieres on YouTube. This shouldn't be a cause for alarm but rather a sigh of relief for those that haven't had the chance to get their audio (and transcripts) handed in to me. You've received a reprieve! (Even though I've never asked for a deadline because all know how deadlines worked out for Obsidian, you may might feel less stress.) So contributors: Hand in your stuff when you're ready - you know who you are - and everyone check out DV's premiere on the 20th of June! And if you'd like to give me an update in lieu of the materials, I'll take that too in a PM.

    Here you go. changes.ini So, some explanations for the changes. You didn't add the module (MOD) file to the install list. You always want to make sure this is set to copy, NOT replace (it will say "File" if in changes.ini if it is set to copy). That way it will only copy it there if it does not already exist. Since most people will have TSLRCM installed, and that adds MODs for almost every module in the game, you don't want to overwriting them. Or ones added by other mods, more so in K1. Most of the files intended for the Override, textures and new UTIs, got added to the GFF list. As the name suggests, the GFF list is for GFFs (e.g. UTPs, UTCs, GITs, etc.), but only for ones you are actively editing. This is sometimes a new one you are editing, especially in the case of UTCs where you may need to dynamically change an appearance.2da reference, but in your case you needed to add these to the file list. I have set them to replace, mostly so you can see how that works. For your own unique files this is typically fine, and may sometimes be a requirement for a patch/update to an existing mod or the like. But in some instances copy may be the more desirable approach. You did not set the target destination for the actual GFF that was correctly in the list (g_tresmillow007.utp). This is critical (and the entire point of this TSLPatcher setup) because if you don't specify a target then it defaults to the Override. Which is the same problem you had originally. The destination has now been set to the MOD added above (I have assumed 152HAR is the intended module, so change if necessary). It should be noted that for a file in the GFF list that already exists in the target location, such as in this case, you don't need to include a physical copy of the file in the mod, since everything TSLPatcher needs is in the ini. However, if you are adding a completely new file then you do have to include a copy. More of a minor issue, but you had it set to automatically look up the game install location, which is the default setting. You should always set it to user defined, since TSLPatcher only knows about the CD version. Typically in modern use (with GOG or Steam versions of the game) it just fails to find the install and asks the user, but in certain edge cases this can cause problems. You can change this in the Settings section up the top, but you have to manually hit the Save Settings button for anything in there (unlike changes made in any other section, which update automatically). As a final note, you should take a look at changes.ini so you can get a better understanding of what the program is doing. There are some things that are just easier to change in the ini file directly (and at least one thing that is only possible to change there), so checking it after every edit is a good practice to get into.

    The model needs a flag enabled in the trimesh for normal maps to function. In MDLEdit you can just load the model, go to Edit -> Textures, then tick the checkbox next to any textures than have an associated normal map. There should be built in help that explains all this.

    I avoided dealing with this issue entirely by using the credited version of TSLRCM 1.8.5 on moddb.com, it seems that the installer automatically assumes you have lucasarts folder or creates one and puts the TSLRCM modded files there. https://www.moddb.com/mods/the-sith-lords-restored-content-mod-tslrcm/downloads/tslrcm-183 Ignore the link title claiming its 183, it is 1.8.5. This version allows you to choose the installation folder and fixes your problem. @LogicalPanda

    I was looking at the fairsider's kotor 1/2 toolset ........ I was able to go into kotor1 mode... open up one of your kotor 1 modules.....then go in and change the mode to kotor 2...... now you can select a npc or object on the map then open up the edit window which not allows you to change it to use kotor 2 appearances etc. Then simple save or save as. Have not tested with editing it then going into in game but this should by pass the issue where you want to use kotor 1 modules and fill it with kotor 2 assests and edit the files as if they are kotor 2 game files.

    On a technical side, the k1 modules in the 2 resource files you uploaded would work in k2 mod. Was thinking of using some of the k1 maps you have ine the upload for a possible mod. I saw that you mention to use them to remove certain ojects on the module. I would only be keeping the placeables in them unless i plan to reskin the module to represent a different location/planet. Would this be ok? Side note, are you using the kotor toolset to place and populate the modules in your mod? Thanks and great job with your mod👍👍👍

    Encountered a small bug today or at least a small issue. The "uvdirectionx" and "uvidrectiony" parameters for animated UV maps have a smallest possible value of 0.001 but there are actually vanilla models like the Manaan underwater skybox that use smaller values that are rounded when importing them into Max. The same is probably true for other parameters as well but that's where I noticed it.

    Not really. Basically, by removing those polygons you'd end up with holes in the model. That would mean you'd have to remodel and retexture most of the model to achieve the result you've described. In that case, editing any of the existing armors would require much less work to obtain the desired effect.

    If you are using appearance.2da to specify the texture name, then yes - in the 2DA it would use the base name "hermet_robe" and then would assign the appropriate texture based on the model variation (e.g. hermet_robe01). Alternatively, if the texture column is left blank, it will apply whatever texture is directly assigned to the model.

    This is another edit for my main project that I decided to package separately. It adds the ability to manually travel to Malachor V and to Free Roam after completing the game. Note : made using TSLRCM module files, so TSLRCM required as opposed to compatible. ( though I think it would work without my guess is there might be dialog file differences ) Thor110

    I got a fast response from Steam Support. They said that the Public option is not availlable because I need to turn on Steam Guard. It seems You cannot do anything (I also cannot post comments or rate anything) without this annoyng feature activated (I find it really annoyng to have to wait for Confirmation Codes to be sent to my email - and they come very late and sometimes not at all, plus that i don't own a smartphone and I have to login to my email account every time I log onto Steam, not even my Bank Account has so many security features)! Anyway, I activated Steam Guard and after about 5 attempts I finally got a confirmation code, then I was able to set my mod visibility to Public, after which I disabled Steam Guard again. The mod is now online and can be found here: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2089088310&searchtext= To anyone else encountering this problem, you must have Steam Guard activated in order to be able to set your mods visibility to Public! At least this is what worked for me.

    Yeah, @BarnzyBobble were right about the GOG's stretching. And if there's one specific file be consider to restore is mipc28x6.gui. I replaced the v4.0's one with the former/v3.0[?], and it's back to how it should. Though, I left the equip screen [and rest of others except the said one earlier] that changed by the latter version because it works for me. The "zoomed-in" UI for the item's icon shown bit more details - granted, it noticeably stretched. Nevertheless, much thanks for the improvement this mod brings. Can't imagine myself for not using this. Edit: just noticed that there are gaps that should connect the UI with the frame using v4.0 [for GOG users]. So a rollback option would be much appreciated here. Edit2: disregard. There's an option to download the earlier version just above the Changelog section. Pardon my peon-incompetency, hahah. Edit3: apparently a rollback to v3.0 doesn't help much if v4.0 had already installed. What [GOG] users need to do is to DL clonegizka's mod [as attached a post earlier] and then overwrite changes made by this version.

    @Salk I actually planned to add the winking but I totally forgot. The second part with the arm was supposed to be him showing off his muscles but I guess I didn't quite catch that lol. By transitioning to the talk animation then I assume you don't want it to be looping then? The default one when the animation stops is PAUSE1 and I don't think I can change that. So this is what it looks like: @Crazy34 Thanks dude! Unfortunately I don't think it's possible for the lightning to come from above like that.

    Try to set "m_bIsBackgroundGeometry" to 1 in this nodes: trimesh Top, trimesh Side04, trimesh Side02, trimesh Side01, trimesh Side03. And then compile. Should help with visible fire, smoke and npc's in the distance

    I managed to put Peragus back onto the Galaxy Map for my project, seeing as there are no more planets to fill that last slot I will leave it as it is for the moment. It is the last working planet slot though, two of the 16 slots don't seem to actually function, that is currently Onderon, though I think it could be made to function it is locked out for the story and the Ebon Hawk which is currently used for Malachor V as the player doesnt need to exit to it. Beyond that as far as I can tell it's impossible to add any more planets, unless replacing Peragus or Onderon. Though there really is no need for so many planets, I just wanted to push the galaxy map scripts to their limits and see what could be done. I think it is hardly noticeable that the galaxy map is not present during the tutorial, but let me know what you think if you are reading this extra long status update.

    I've been doing some more modding to practise different areas and I have added a new Force Power to the game. It is based in the Retribution ability Anakin has in Battlefront 2 from EA. The Power doesn't check for any saving throws at the moment so it's kind of OP right now. It has a radius of 18 units and I don't know how much Force points it should consume yet. Here's a demo: As you can see, the Power has a custom animation, icon and sound. I have also modified the original choke animation to look closer to the one in Battlefront 2 when you are being affected by this Power. I also realised that we don't have a "multi" choke Power in the games since all three levels of choke are on one individual person, so this could cover that. But it has some inconveniences: · For some reason, the game uses the loop animation for the saber throw as the default cast anim, so I couldn't just make a new one and play it in the impact script because it would get overridden by this one. So this new animation replaces the saber throw loop animation. · Sometimes the enemies don't get affected if they are behind you or really far (but inside the Power radius). · For the new choke animation to play correctly, I had to change it from looping to fireforget. And that not might be ideal with the original one since it's really short. · If you move or kill the enemy you were targetting before the 9 seconds that the Power takes to cast, the animation of the player will get interrupted, just like with the vanilla Powers. Also you will not be able to attack again until the cast time expires. I will release this if someone thinks it is still worth it even with all of these little problems I mentioned. I will also include the source script in case someone is curious and wants to take a look at it. On another note, Ӄhrizby has finally contacted me and given me permission to use his Darth Nihilus animation fix. I have also managed to fix the icons so I have attached the two ports here just in case anyone wants them although I haven't been able to fix the character support problems so they don't have that. Type "giveitem darthnihilus_k1" without quotes for the Darth Nihilus robe item and "giveitem darthmalak_k2" for the Malak one. Also, I don't know what happened to Darth Malak. It's still pending approval. I assume if I did something wrong the admins would have told me or something. I wanted to release these two ports as well, but I want to solve any problems there are with Malak first, so that it won't happen again with these two. Anyway, hope you enjoy this.

    The lightsabers themselves, are fantastic. Couldn't ask for more (aside from what Obisoln said). The spawn locations, however, completely and utterly destroy this mod. You put a lightsaber, on Taris. Not only that, you put it in an area where we can get it, before we even have Bastila in the party. Just put it on the body of the Jedi on the Endar Spire why don't ya? (Just because I don't doubt that you might, that was a joke. Don't take it seriously.) Dantooine is nearly as bad. You JUST received the ability to even use a lightsaber, and oops, here's a lightsaber that's way better than the lightsaber that you just built that's supposed to be yours for life, AND it's before you even have access to crystals. The others aren't that horrific, but they're still awful. The back of the landing pad. Are you serious? I shouldn't have to explain this one. Kashyyyk's isn't half bad, but it's not even in the Lower Shadowlands. Sorry if this is coming off as harsh, but dude, this is not good. If I was going to place the sabers somewhere, the Lily goes in the Terentatek's belly on Kashyyyk. The Evenstar goes in the footlocker of the Sith Master on Manaan. The Sceptre goes either in the inventory of the Storyteller or the back of the Krayt Dragon's lair on Tatooine. And of course the Righteous Hand goes on Duron Qel-Droma's body in the back of the Shyrack cave on Korriban. As it stands now, as far as anyone that cares about balance or theme (basically anyone that isn't modding MP5s in the game) is concerned, this mod is unusable. Which is deeply sad and frustrating at the same time.

    When I go to korriban and begin the initial conversation with Bastila, everything works fine, until I suggest that the sith will recognize Bastila, or that she must stay on the ship. When I select that option, Bastila says one more line, before the dialogue cuts off and a get a message box that says conversation error, conversation has an end or continue node, contact designer.

    The head texture is fantastic however the clothing really puts this mod down under (Only thing that redeems that part of the mod for me is throwing him in your amazing Lore Keeper Robe Mod)
