    Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 1 & 2 : Expanded Galaxy Project - Beta Over all both releases contain everything necessary for KotOR and KotOR 2 in order to add every planet / missing module to each game and vice versa and I have plans to add an overall questline during the game for each area as well as an expansion to both games, currently every module can only be warped to with the cheats enabled in the swkotor.ini files for both games.

    Version 1.0.1


    This mod makes some minor changes to the forcefield in the Upper Shadowlands on Kashyyyk that gates access to the Lower Shadowlands. In the vanilla game, the forcefield is never actually disabled. Rather, the sound effect is simply turned off while the camera is pointed away from the forcefield, followed by an immediate area transition. It appears that Bioware did this due to issues with opening and closing doors via scripting. Additionally, there are no apparent controls for the forcefield, simply a frame and the field itself. The level model containing the forcefield has been edited to add a computer panel, fix a gap above the forcefield via some adjustments to the frame geometry, move some vines out of camera shot during dialogue, and prevent grass planes from spawning too close to the ramp and clipping through. The dialogue that occurs when interacting with the field has had some scripts injected to play animations implying that the forcefield is being switched off via the control panel. Jolee will now approach the control panel when the dialogue starts, and will face it when disabling the field. The field itself is now shown shutting down before the party transitions to the Lower Shadowlands. Additionally, there appears to have been an error in leaving out a script on one of the nodes that would stop Jolee from saying "You aren't going to ask about it?" even if you had actually asked about it, which has been fixed. Compatibility: The K1 Community Patch puts an edited version of the module's OnEnter script in the Override. After installing this mod, copy and paste k_pkas24aa_enter.ncs from the "K1CP Compatibility" folder into your Override folder, overwriting when prompted. K1CP's Tach gland fix is preserved in the provided compatibility file. If you are using a mod that forcibly overwrites MOD files (like NPC Overhaul), make sure you install that mod first. This mod will patch a pre-existing kas_m24aa.mod in the Modules folder. Not compatible with any other mod that replaces the same level model (m24aa_09a). Not compatible with any other mod that puts kas24_force_01.dlg in the Override folder (although such a case should be fixable with a compatibility patch). Known Issues: In order to get the forcefield to close and function properly again after a level transition, it was necessary to resort to a hack function Bioware implemented for (presumably) the same issue they had with doors on the Yavin space station. In testing this has worked perfectly fine, however, the specifics of the hack are undocumented, so there may be edge cases I haven't encountered. If anyone experiences any issues with it, let me know. As you can see in the video, there's a subtitle error for one of Jolee's lines. Fixing it is better left to dedicated dialog.tlk overhaul. The mod doesn't touch the Lower Shadowlands module, so there's no active field or control panel on that side. Perhaps that could be an optional extra added in a future update.

    Are you sure that's the name of it? There is no such script in the vanilla module. And a quick glance at the Lower Shadowlands and Great Walkway modules would suggest it is not from either of those. I can only assume it must be custom. What mod did it come from? I did muse over possible additional changes, including SFX, but it's far too much hassle. I'd have to make provisions for at least three separate interactions that each have different VOs of differing lengths. Each would require custom animations in order to smoothly transition between facings. And even then I don't know how much better it would be in practice.

    Just some stuff I thought might be interesting

    In my recent blog post, I was asking folks for their input on rebuilding my old Windows 7 computer. It's time for an update! Here's the part breakdown . . . iBuypower ARC 647 CASE ATX Mid Tower Case (unchanged from original) Noctua NH-D14 65.0 CFM CPU Cooler (a recent purchase but before this build) PowerColor Radeon R9 270X 2GB Video Card (unchanged from original) Update (as of 09JAN2019): Radeon RX 580 LG UH12NS30 Blu-Ray Reader, DVD/CD Writer (unchanged from original) Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ASRock Fatal1ty Z170 Gaming K4 ATX LGA1151 Motherboard Western Digital Blue 4TB 3.5" 5400RPM Internal Hard Drive EVGA SuperNOVA G2 550W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply CORSAIR Vengeance LED 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 300 Cooler Master SickleFlow (Red) 69.7 CFM 120mm Fan (I had to replace a fan in front, more on that below) NZXT Sleeved LED Kit - red - 1m (12 LEDs) The Pictures! Here's a "before" picture for you with all of the old equipment, with the side off. You might note that there's a small fan between that huge light brown Noctua fan and the side of the case. That fan - a red LED fan - was moved to the front of the case in the build. It joins another red LED fan that was purchased to replace an old one. Here's the case emptied out. The Intel chip is installed in the motherboard. Power supply installed. Better look at the fan that was later moved to the front. The monstrous fan is put back in. As you can see above, the Corsair RAM almost could not make it in due to the large fan size. That RAM has red LEDs in them. Are you seeing a red theme in this build yet? It's interesting to me because the original build had a blue cathode light bar. That red band on the side of the case should have convinced me to go with a red light bar in the first place. I wanted some red lights in there besides the RAM so I went with the lighting kit listed above. I wanted it subtle so I placed the LEDs just outside of view of the window so there would be a faint glow rather than something more Vegas styled. Here's the back of the case. Side panel reinstalled, with room lights on. Front of the case, in low light conditions. Side of the case, in low light conditions. This process has not been without a headache. After installing the Windows 7 back on the computer, I discovered (after the fact) that Windows 7 computers do not recognize drives above 2TB because a partition type called MBR. It has to be a GPT type to do that. However - and here comes a catch 22 - you can't install Windows 7 on a GPT drive. But I do still have a Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive from the original build which I'll be installing back into the computer. The Windows 7 will install on there, enabling me to changine the parititon scheme on the 4TB drive from MBR to GPT. I just have to have the time and patience to get back into the computer to install that drive. In the mean time, I can certainly make do with 2TB as it's more than what I had before! Finishing touches: I'm one of those old folks that like to use Windows event sounds. Mine mostly came from this video. (I also added a few myself from other sources.) I might be able to part with them if you PM me. (This offer may be retracted at any time.) Special Thanks. Thanks so much to Th3bigM00se to helping me put this together. (He did most of the work.) You can visit his Youtube channel here! (Be nice, folks!)

    Graphics card finally installed! Looks like I can get back to gaming tomorrow night. (I'll be working tonight so that's the only reason for a delay.)

    Wondering what people think about retro-actively fitting the K2 engine to allow for and streamline the process of Total Conversion modifications set in both the Star Wars Universe as well as outside of, could also be used for Point & Click stories.

    Usual permanent addition to the game (and still excited for more DP marvels announced but yet to be released)! I would only like to add that I found the head of the protagonist in the video to be such a great homage to DarthParametric's iconic icon appearance here at Deadlystream. Cheers!

    Lana Beniko soundset in download section now. Next up: (male) Revan! We will have to wait until my contributors send the necessary files to me before I proceed with my next soundsets. (Note the plural.)

    Texturing should be done second to last. And voiceovers - voiceovers should always be last.
