138 downloadsIntroduction 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. Commands Commands in SithCodec are executed by combining keywords into certain command sequences that the application recognizes. Input may be passed as command-line arguments when SithCodec is launched, or entered manually through a command- line interface if the application is launched without any command-line arguments. Keywords may be entered in short form (dash followed by a single letter) or long form (double dash followed by a full word). SithCodec keywords are not case sensitive, but—depending on your operating system—other data that you input may be, such as the names of files. Help Screen Entering -h or --help will display the help screen, showing a list of all keywords and their function. -d, --decode decode audio -e, --encode encode audio -f, --format set output audio format -m, --music streammusic format -s, --sfx streamsounds format -v, --vo streamwaves/streamvoice format -a, --all all files -l, --list list files & formats -i, --in input path -o, --out output path -h, --help display this menu -c, --commands display list of commands -x, --examples display example commands -q, --quit exit application Commands Screen Entering -c or --commands will display a screen with the list of all valid commands. -d -i=[input path] -d -i=[input path] -o=[output path] -d -a -d -a -i=[input path] -d -a -o=[output path] -d -a -i=[input path] -o=[output path] -e -f -[format] -i=[input path] -e -f -[format] -i=[input path] -o=[output path] -e -a -f -[format] -e -a -f -[format] -i=[input path] -e -a -f -[format] -o=[output path] -e -a -f -[format] -i=[input path] -o=[output path] -l -l -i=[input path] -l -o=[output path] -l -i=[input path] -o=[output path] Examples Screen Entering -x or --examples will display some example commands.

960 downloadsSummary 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.
