    Version 3.0


    This is the next part of an ongoing series. The purpose of this mod is to bring the much more up-to-date design choices from SWTOR to Kotor. All textures have been made from scratch. The Overhaul also contains sophisticated Mass Effect 3 orientated high Quality animations. Update 3.0 out now! Safe to upgrade from 1.0 - and for those who downloaded 1.0 i highly recommend to get 3.0 since the difference is huge. This is a huge one - to catch the flair of SWTOR all animations have been redone from scratch again - the floor now contains cubemap based reflections & scratches. Further a new kolto animation & a HQ metalic tech texture have been implemented. Installation: 1.FIRST, drag the extracted files from Part 1 into the KOTOR Override folder. 2.THEN, batch process the extracted files from Part 2 via XnView into the Override as shown in HowtoInstall.rar. Do NOT extract these files directly to the override. Done! (to update from 1.0 to 3.0 simply do the installation process again and overwrite everything) Compatibility: This mod uses cubemaps, so there could be minor incompatibilites with mods that uses custom cubemaps too. ( but i actually dont know any mod that does that) Just to be on the safe side, i recommend to install my mod last. Beside that it should be compatible with everything that doesnt retexture the Sith Bases either at Taris or Manaan. Credits: I want to thank Darth Sapiens for his wonderful Cubemap-Ressource pack, which enabled me to do a lot of things that would otherwise been not possible. I also want to thank Xarwarz for using the hex edited mdl & mdx files from his Overhaul. That allowed me more variety on my panel retextures.

    View File Muur Talisman Description Designed by Karness Muur, the Talisman is a dark side artifact that is capable of turning other beings into mindless rakghouls. A few things to note: This item is going to spawn somewhere on Korriban and is hard to miss (in case you do miss it, the cheat code is g_i_frarmbnds25). It does not work on other Force sensitive beings (as stated in the lore). Transformed rakghouls receives bonus to their STR, CON, and receives significant penalties to their WIS, CHA, INT. Their tough hide grants resistance to physical and ion attacks. The rest is for you to discover. Welcome to the dark side, my children... your one chance at true greatness lies here.

    We are several months down the track from the last update where I said we were close to releasing v1.8, but we are super close for realsies this time. @Snigaroo is getting fidgety waiting for it, so we'll soon be doing what will essentially be the final beta test before public release.

Yuthura and Uthar dark uniforms in the Korriban Sith Academy to match their other appearances By my count that's almost four times what I posted back in March. That's some healthy scope creep. As before, you can check out the readme on the Github repo for a full breakdown of the changes and attribution to their various authors. There's also the issue list, which has further detail on specific problems that have been addressed (and remaining outstanding ones). Oh, and it would be remiss of me not to give special thanks to @ebmar and @Salk for providing a number of bug reports and suggestions/contributions. Thanks also to various other forum and Discord members for providing reports as well over the last 6 months.

    We've all seen what a version of M4-78 padded with side-quests and utilizing the full map looks like with the various versions over the years. I was wondering to myself what a "lite" version of M4-78 might look like. What would the essentials be? Would it be the bare minimum of story - just so you can get that quick conversation with Vash so you could get back on the ship? Or something else entirely? TLDR: What would you want if someone were to make a shortened version of M4-78?

    Lite - no. Tight - yes. The current storyline is as loose as generic oatmeal at Grandma's. Or her stool afterwards. It is a decent story as it stands, right now. The execution needs polish and to be "tight". It is a loose ship full of holes now, one of the most frustrating experiences of gameplay I've had in a while.

    Version v2.5


    About This File Knights Of The Old Republic II: [THE SITH LORDS] ================================================ Author: MetaBee Name: K2 Improved Gameplay Mod v2.5 Description: This mod aims to improve the game play, as well as to fix incorrect parameters within certain 2da file rows. For example, the saving throws of all the Prestige Classes are actually incorrect, or either unfinished. This mod will fix that. It also aims to balance out combat, influence - skills ect. This mod makes it possible, to now reach higher LvL's in the game before you finish. Its possible to reach LvL 40 now, and maybe 50," Provided one does all bonus quests as well as take all advantages off XP opportunities. In the OG game, even if you do so, you will only make it to 30 -32 "Without Exploiting". Bearing in mind i'm including TSLRCM. How does this work ? Simple, you will accumulate more XP from killing hostiles, as well as require less XP to Lvl up. The balance to this, is that your enemies will now be stronger, have more HP, and will be overall better to combat with. Note: Lvl's will appear to be fast, especially in the beginning - however a grand total of 880 000 XP is Required to reach Lvl 50. For more details, see ReadMeDetails.txt located in the mod. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I highly recommend getting Stoffe's Improved Ai Mod, In conjunction With My Mod. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Compatible: This Mod, is compatible with TSLRCM 1.8.5 Incompatible: With any files that conflicts with these files. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Install: Run the Tslpatcher, and point it to your Knights of The Old Republic II Games Directory. Uninstall: Simply delete the files, and copy the backup files to where they were. "For specific instructions, please refer to the ReadMeInstall.txt - that comes with the mod" ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Bugs: None known, let me know if you encounter any.

    Thanks for your input, @Bovolt! I happen to have a number of the voice files saved on my computer- some of them in unfiltered versions. Should I make these available to the public so folks can try their own filters on them?

    For the most part, the DLG files don't contain text. Each node in a dialogue file has a string reference that points to a line in the dialog.tlk file and all the text is there. I believe they did this for localization purposes so they could hand off just the one file to the translators. If you want to edit any of the game's text, there are two options. Edit dialog.tlk directly with TalkEd. The TLK file is massive and difficult to navigate, but the DLG file will at least tell you the line numbers. That should be simple enough for personal use, but I wouldn't recommend releasing it as a mod because dialog.tlk has all the text in the game so that presents a compatibility issue. It's possible to patch it with TSLPatcher, though. Edit the DLG files instead. DLG files can have their own text, they just don't normally. To edit the text, you have to set the string reference to -1. That gets rid of the TLK line reference so you can type your own text instead. I would recommend using DLGEditor rather than KOTOR Tool's dialogue editor. This might not be the proper way to do it, but it's less of a compatibility issue because you only have to deal with other mods that alter those same specific DLG files.

    Believe it or not there are still people in this galaxy who want to find out if certain mods are compatible with the k1 or tslrcm restoration mods. I am simply here to inform those who are lurking and want to find out if it is compatible and where to download.

    Yes, it's true! KotorTools can be made to run on a Mac! (Or, I suppose, a Linux machine, but this tutorial assumes you have a Mac. If you're a Linux user this is probably useful, but I have no idea how Wine looks on a Linux.) After months of opening KotorTools in Wine and only being able to use the 2da editor for 2das that had already been extracted, irrational-pie and felixfelicitas came up with a way to properly install it on a Mac. No longer shall we be bound to this hell, etc. This tutorial will go into "I have never even touched Wine before" detail, for those of us who have never even touched Wine before. If you have, the bolded instructions should be sufficient. The instructions with pictures are all found here. Click the images to enlarge, etc. You will need: the setup .exe for kotortools Wineskin Winery 1. Create a new blank wrapper for KotOR Tool. Open Wineskin Winery. If you don't already have it, add "WS9Wine1.7.35" to your engines. (It will probably work on others, but when I used 1.2.3 the 2da editor crashed every few minutes. This is just one that I know works.) Create new blank wrapper. Name it kotortools. Or whatever you want, really. It's your party. When it's building the wrapper, it'll ask you about network connection, gecko, and mono. Say yes to the connection. Don't install mono or gecko. When it finishes, click view in finder. You should see kotortools.app. Drag it wherever you want kotortools to live- Applications folder, desktop, doesn't matter. You can move it later, too, but I always forget where it automatically saves. (And feel free to close Winery, you're done over there.) Then, right click it and "show package contents." Open wineskin.app. Hit advanced. 2. Using Winetricks, download dotnet20 (under dllls). Head to the tools tab. The first thing under Utilities is Winetricks. Open that. Under dllls, you'll find dotnet20. Check the box and hit "run." You'll have to wait for a bit while it downloads, then do a bit of button-clicking to install it. It’ll take a while to do that, too. Be patient. Once that’s done, close the Winetricks. You’re done there. 3. Open your registry editor (regedit). Still on the tools tab, there's regedit. Open that up. (If you're having trouble running kotortools on a windows machine, the registry is probably where you're going wrong there, too.) For KoTOR: Under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software, highlight Software. Edit>New>Key. Make this chain of folders: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\BioWare\SW\KOTOR. Highlight KOTOR. Edit>New>String Value. Name the Value "Path," and under data enter wherever your KOTOR game is. If you’ve ever used TSLPatcher to install a mod, the log for that mod will have your path in it. The standard path is something like Z:\Your User Name\Library\Application Support\Steam\SteamApps\common\swkotor\Knights of the Old Republic.app\Contents\KOTOR Data. Don't just copy/paste this! Actually go check! The Z:\ on the front is very important. If you have the Mac version of KotOR through Steam, don't point it at Knights of the Old Republic.app. You'll need to go further and add Contents\KOTOR Data. For TSL: The above, under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\LucasArts\KotOR2. Paths will vary wildly, depending on where you put however you run KotOR 2. Remember the Z:\. You’re done here. Close regedit. 4. Download the exe into the wrapper. Under the Configuration tab, hit "Install Software" and point it at your setup .exe. When that's done, make sure that the Windows EXE path is "/Program Files/Kotor Tool/kotor_tool.exe" And that's it! Boot it up and make sure it finds your games!
