    Version 1.0.0


    This mod replace the default voice-over used by the Elder Droids with the Legends rendition. # Background # It was one fine evening when I take a walk inside the Elder's Settlement. I wonder how them droids sounds like, and then... why do they sounded like T3? So I wanted to experience something else, then I remember back in the Ancient Ruins of Dantooine there was a similar droid there that has something different with it. Apparently it was speaking Rakatan's language that the PC did not recognized. I decided that I had to incorporate that with the droid then, hence the making of this mod. # About this Mod # This mod replace the default voice-over used by the Elder Droids with the Legends rendition. The sound was made using an inverted Rakatan's voice-over with added droid-like filters on top of it. By concept it gave an idea that the droids were speaking an epitome of language that the PC did not understand [in Bastila's voice], resulting in addition of changing the spoken line of the droids. It also changes the bubble-bark conversation to a cinematic one. For a distinctive look at what the mod does, here is the preview - # Final Remarks # There's always room for improvements; critiques, comments, suggestions, questions and feedbacks for the next update are very much appreciated. PM, write them on my feed or leave any on the mod's page as you please. And thank you! for downloading, and playing this mod. Hope you enjoy the mod as much as I do! Installation: run the installer and choose INSTALL option, then hit the [Install Mod ->] button! Uninstallation: Choose the UNINSTALL option in the installation menu Additionally you may want to remove eb_elderdrd_ANGM.wav from the streamwaves folder Compatibility: For maximum compatibility, install this mod at the latter stage of your mod's build Will not be compatible with any mods that hard-overwrite the Elder Settlement/unk_m42aa module Pay attention to the patcher's warning messages upon installing the mod. If it tells you that it found an instance of k_hdroid1_dialog.dlg and unk42_elddroidXYZ.utc in the Override folder, then there might be a compatibility issue indeed For this mod to be fully effective you should at least load a saved game before entering the Elder Settlement [unk_m42aa] module The mod is play-tested with the latest version of KotOR 1 Restoration/K1R and is compatible with it. At the other hand, it was only by far tested with K1:Community Patch/K1CP v1.7, though assets-wise, there's nothing to be conflicted with the 1.8 version Redistribution: do not redistribute this mod or re-release it on any websites. I'd love to provide direct support to my work, which wouldn't be possible if they're scattered in the Unknown Regions.

    Nah it's absolutely whining about TLJ. Most people here live in some kind of dream world where TLJ was a financial and critical disaster and forever besmirched the reputation of Rian Johnson and Kathleen Kennedy. Remember all those videos predicting KK getting fired a year ago? I don't think those critical of the new trilogy have their finger anywhere close to the cultural pulse of our society.

    Hmm. Been a long while since the last time I use that mod so I'm not sure how far it changes things. Hmm, perhaps you can look into the appearance.2da and see row 378 which is Trask's; does its texa and texb columns appointed to N_RepSold? If yes, then it's OK to remove the TGA and leave only the TPC version [which came from this mod], but if not - then some workaround is waiting ahead, and I need your report on the said value.

    And I think it important that the world knows... that pesky problem that plagued the Disciple-Carth/Cede scene at endgame - which broke the game for many players - can finally... REST... IN... PEACE! Many thanks to @Snigaroo for testing PartySwap in preparation for the next iteration of the Community Mod Build. There are a few other issues that I'd like to check out at some point, even if only to learn that PS isn't the problem, but none of them are game breaking. I also have something else to restore in the mod, so expect a new release sometime this week. DarthTyren has spoken!

    Ok so I took your advice guys and I tried making the animation following the TALK_FORCEFUL animation from S_Male02, which is kind of the angry talk animation. But before I did anything I wanted to test out if I could a new slot for the model so I called it tlkforce which is what the game uses to match the TALK_FORCEFUL animation. But for some reason the game doesn't recognize it, whenever I try playing it the model just uses the default talking animation. If I try to do the same with an existing animation (I remove it first and try to play it) the game tries for a second but switches to the idle animation (notice I say idle but before it was the default talking one, not the same). This tells me that the game knows there is this animation but it can't find it. Whereas the previous case the game just doesn't even search for it. It's like it's not hardcoded into the game to look for the INT_TALK_FORCEFUL constant in the selkath model. So there is no choice but to replace an existing one. After looking at all of them the least used one is the usecomp animation (I think it's only used when you are sentenced to death in the trial and the guy in the computer turns the ray cell on. But let's be honest, you have to be really bad or do it on purpose to get that ending so it's not a big deal). The problem is that it's a fireforget animation, not a looping one. Meaning that when it's done the model will return to the idle animation. The looping version of the animation it's not on the model unfortunately and I can't use it. Anyway, here's the animation: And here's how it looks in Blender: For some reason I can't get the mouth movements in my test, but I tried it with vanilla NPCs and it works perfectly. The only downside to this is that all entries in the .dlg files you posted would have to be updated with USE_COMPUTER_NOLOOP instead of TALK_FORCEFUL in the animation field, in case you are still interested. What do you think?

    Perhaps this will do: If not then I (or someone else here) can explain how to do it with KotOR Tool.

    If you get this, right click on the binary code and select View decompiled code in DeNCS. Now you can save the script. Good luck!

    Great to read all these balanced takes in this thread!

    All this would require is dialog editing. Since you seem to have a pretty clear idea about what you want, why not edit the dialog yourself? You do need to know where to find the right dialog, which can sometimes be a little tricky for a beginner, but then you can ask here (the above part is in k_hbas_dialog.dlg). Once you have the file, editing it is simple. Then just drop the file into your override folder.

    Version 1.1


    This mod adds the Force power Knock, which can open locks as if you had used the Security skill on them. You earn the same amount of XP using this power as you would using Security, as well. It is a universal power and costs 10 Force points to activate. When used, Knock unlocks the nearest door or container, provided there is an eligible lock within 5 meters. It cannot open a lock with a DC greater than 50, or one that requires a special keycard. In other words, it cannot unlock anything you could not otherwise unlock with Security in regular gameplay. You can acquire Knock whenever you level up a Jedi character. It will then appear with your other friendly Force powers (such as Heal and Speed).

    This is a repost of an old tutorial I did on LucasForums. Original posts can be found HERE. The combat animations are in fact in the regular old animations.2da; combatanimations.2da is more like a seating arrangement. It lists all the attacks and then states which animation goes with it - hit, parry, dodge, and so on. It's entirely numbers so it can be a mess. animations.2da gives you more of a clue, but the naming scheme can seem a bit weird at first glance. The animation name is an alphanumeric code with four parts, alternating letters and numbers. The first part corresponds to the attack type - a generic attack, a feat, or a monster attack. There also seems to be some attempt to divide it into ranged and melee, but I can't discern it entirely. b - ranged c- melee f - feat g - generic m - monsterNext, it's divided into weapon type as well as whether the character wielding one or two. These are given abbreviations for K2 only. 0 - N/A - droid 1 - SB - stun baton 2 - SS - single saber 3 - 2HS - two-handed saber (double-bladed) 4 - DS - dual sabers 5 - SB - single blaster 6 - DB - dual blasters 7 - RF - rifle 8 - NT - natural attack (unarmed, I believe) 9 - HC - heavy carbine 10 - UC - unarmed, complex (K2 only) 11 - N/A - wrist launcher (K2 only)Next, what the character is doing. a - attack d - damage f - appears unused g - dodge n - deflection p - parry r - ready w - wieldAnd finally, another number. In most cases this is simply a variation number; some in K2 have an additional letter, for even more variation. So, for example, if you want a character wielding a blaster rifle to dodge, the animation would be g7g1. g: generic 7: rifle g: dodge 1: variation (in this case there's only one) In the original thread, Fallen Guardian asked about power blast. This is where it gets complicated. Some of these variables are limited by other variables. Parry, for instance, is only a melee occurrence. I believe this is the reason for the distinction between ranged and melee that I mentioned above. Let's look at the first part again. 1:b - ranged 1:c - melee, complex 1:f - melee, feats 1:m - melee, monster 1:g - both, genericAnd now let's look at the third part. 3:a - both, attack 3:d - both, damage 3:g - ranged, dodge 3:n - melee, deflection 3:p - melee, parry(Putting this in code because of the emoticon.) 1:b is used for [i]all[/i] blaster attack animations. 1:c covers complex melee animations such as parries and clashes. 1:f is reserved for melee feats - critical strike, flurry, and power attack, as well as Force Jump. 1:m is for engaging a monster in melee. 1:g is anything else. 3:a is used for any attack. 3:d is used for any damage. 3:g is used for dodging ranged attacks. 3:n is used for deflecting ranged attacks with a lightsaber. 3:p is used for parrying melee attacks.Because of these specifications, certain ones do not belong with certain other ones. If that's not confusing enough, the final number is not always a simple variation; what it is depends on both of the above letter slots. I'll go over the feats for you. MELEE (f***) 1 - critical strike 2 - flurry 3 - power 4 - jump RANGED (b***) 1 - attack 2 - attack 2 3 - sniper shot 4 - power blast So, finally, a power blast animation is b*a4. The asterisk is either 5, 6, 7, or 9, depending on whether you are dealing with a single blaster, dual blasters, a rifle, or a heavy carbine. To make things even more confusing, there are a couple other animations that use the same scheme, in a way. The knocked down animations, for instance, are g1x1, g1y1, and g1z1. And in K2, there are multiple ready animations for lightsabers, the final number corresponding to the saber form, but I don't know if they ever finished the animations for them. If you're still confused, the 2DA for K2 has a description column that might help. The format is virtually the same as K1's, but of course K2 has more animations so you shouldn't go by it entirely.

    There's crazies on both sides, but I do genuinely think the new Trilogy is mostly a failure. I think a real clear sign is that the RoS merch is already on clearance while say- The Mandalorian merch that's now being sold by scalpers, just rises in price. I just feel animosity for the Trilogy myself, but Rian Johnson's attitude on Twitter has been nothing but despicable most of the time, I've seen several instances of him pretending like the black, asian and trans people critical of him don't exist. Whilst simultaneously using minorities as a shield for his poor decision making, even though he minimised the role of everyone but white people in his film, while focusing in on the poor tortured neo-Nazi. It's insulting, that's the main problem I have with the guy, his idea for Luke Skywalker in particular I thought was really interesting, but just like everything in that film- it gets up to the part when it could be interesting then it immediately backs away. And that's about it, the rest of it just regurgitates parts of ESB and ROTJ. The throne room scene in particular was so reminiscent of Luke and Vader's confrontation with the Emperor, it actually saddened me because for a moment I thought is this all this franchise is going to be from now on? Repeating the past while spouting ideas about doing something new? As for GoT, I thought everything up to Season 4, or arguably 6 was excellent, with a bump here or there- and I gave the penultimate season some leeway, it was just set up for the masterplan of the final season, how wrong I was- I remember being so excited seeing the runtimes of the episodes thinking: "Damn, this is like- six movies!" But nothing prepared me for how awful it was. I'm glad these guys aren't touching Star Wars anytime soon.
