    View File SithCodec 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. 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. Encode all files in SFX format from the input path, to the output path: -e --all -f --sfx- -i=in_folder -o=out_folder Decode a file, outputting to a new file: -d -i=oldfile.old -o=newfile.new Decode a file without specifying output, possibly overwriting the original: -d -i=file.wav List all files & formats in a given directory, printing to the console: -l -i=my_folder List all files & formats in the current directory, printing to a file: -l -o=file.txt Batch Files SithCodec comes with batch files that are set up with commands for some common operations. decode.bat This file will decode all files located in a folder called "in" (no matter what their format) and save the new files in a folder called "decoded". encode_music.bat This file will encode all files located in a folder called "in" and save the new files in a folder called "music". encode_sfx.bat This file will encode all files located in a folder called "in" and save the new files in a folder called "sfx". encode_vo.bat This file will encode all files located in a folder called "in" and save the new files in a folder called "vo".

    If I recall correctly, GetTag() always returns a lowercase string anyway.

    There is no function to get the ResRef. The game doesn't store that value. That's why vanilla items typically use the same value for both Tag and ResRef, so yes, using GetTag is the right function. Unless he is wearing an item from a mod, in which case all bets are off.

    I asked because k1r has a bug that k_pas_morph++ was missing the ++. You may want to check that it is correct in the module. Adding it back gave me the tack dialog every single time. At least I think it did, as the first tack I selected had the dialog fire and the second tack was rulan. So, small sample size, but... Also to answer a question you asked in another thread, I did not have HK in my party yet rulan turned into HK.
