  1. Has anyone heard anything from Sithspector or how his progress on Sleheyron is going? It's been quite a while. 

    I'm guessing he's just not had much time to work on it, which is understandable. 

    I'll stop inquiring about it permanently if mods want

    1. Sith Holocron

      I sent him a message on another matter and it went unanswered.  If I had to hazard a guess, RL has reared it's head.

      When he does have something to report on Sleheyron, I am sure he'll mention something in the WIP thread.

    2. LDR


      Knowing him and his passion for it, I assure you Sithspecter is probably hard at work with Sleheyron.

  2. When you kill Nihilus and Visas looks at Nihilus' face, what do you do differently to have Visas say he looks like "a man, nothing more" instead of "a graveyard world"? Is it random?

    1. TK-664


      Huh? I didn't know about that, I always got the first line.

    2. LDR


      There's two dialogue options:

      1) Tell me what you saw. (I saw a graveyard world...)

      2) What did you see when you looked at him? (A man, nothing more.)

      If I'm interpreting this correctly, there's Visas seeing/looking with her eyes, and then there's Visas "seeing" with the Force. I took a look through Kotor Tool (ERFs > Modules > 852NIH_dlg.erf > 852end.dlg), and emphasis is placed on the wording the player uses. Feel free to look at it yourself and give it your own interpretation.

  3. Would you want a Kotor remake? Rumors of one are surfacing again.

    I'm personally leaning towards no. I'm too paranoid they'll just make a trash product loosely based on the original game that plays and feels completely different.

    And if they do remake the first one, I really, REALLY do not want them to remake the 2nd one. It will almost definitely not implement the cut content, whether that just be the minor story consistencies or M478. 

    I kinda just want a Kotor 3 that eliminates a lot of the story in TOR and revises it it to make Revan's journey and the threat in the unknown regions less underwhelming... but that's probably asking for too much.

      Yes, I would want them to remake KOTOR 1 and 2 both and bring them into canon status.


      I know people are doubtful, but Jason Schreier has a well known record for being having insider industry knowledge so if he's teasing a KOTOR game is in development I 100% believe it.

    3. TamerBill


      If we do get a KotOR 3 it'll be like Baldur's Gate 3, an unrelated game re-using the KotOR name for marketing reasons.

      A good remake of KOTOR 2 (just graphics, cut content and maybe minor gameplay tweaks) would be amazing for my personal replayability of the game.

      I love KOTOR 2, but I've played it so many times that I cannot enjoy it without any novelty.

  4. Got back into Kotor modding and Deadlystream cause of Kotor 2's mobile port announcement, great early christmas gift.

    I decided to try Brotherhood of Shadow along with my other 14GB of Kotor mods. From the save provided with the mod, it's worked fantastically well from start to finish, with only a few tidbits here needing some obvious patching. I'm stunned by how little I have to fix. 

    1. Sith Holocron

      Sith Holocron

      What needs patching?  Will you be releasing these fixes?

    2. Mephiles550


      No because all of the fixes would only be relevant to my own personal override folder's contents, it would be useless to anyone else and would probably just cause more problems.


      Most of the glitches I encountered were related to the 2da files, with some objects here and there likely not having been in their right spot, e.g, Akirkon at the last fight was a czerka employee, the force cage at the end was a rock, and solomons grave was a puddle of oil, etc. They werent common, but noticable. Those were really the only problems I had. 

      I will say tho that I would genuinely pay money to have someone with a decent VO and microphone replace all of Shadows twilek lines with actual english. Its seriously unbearable hearing twilek speak in moments that are actually well written.

  5. Our first adventure takes us to the usual scene. Our hero awakens, pulled away from his wonderous dream of being surrounding by Twilek Lekku, With his morning quarterstaff still up and about, our trusty bunkmate has come to inform us of the situation. In a terrible state of ironic affairs, it seems that he is the one who has fallen out of bed and hit his head, as he believes that he is a Jedi Knight. Yep, a Jedi Knight holding a Blaster rifle and with a Republic Soldier uniform. Seems legit. He also speaks the Twilek language. Fascinating. There have been stories, rare as they are, of people suffering traumatic cranial injuries regaining consciousness to find memories that were not once theirs or somehow have the ability to speak a language never spoken by them before. Perhaps this is one of those moments? Anyway, we have to escort our immensly confused friend to the scene of the battle. We now have a glimpse of what he actually looks like through our animated profile pic of him! Based on this most handsome face, I believe a more fitting name should be applied. Yes, henceforth, we shall name our companion "Bruh". Anyway, Bruh's first battle with sith ends up poorly, but we still survived! In reality, it's just cause we're invincible on the first level, but let's just play along and pretend that Bruh cut down all those mean bad sith bullies with his laser sword Rude ass still won't give me the advanced medical kit he usually would here tho... But now, we've reached the heart of the battle, and it seems like all hands are on deck! In one corner we have a mercenary, on the other corner, a Czerka employee, and on the other corner... a civillian? That thing is nearly half her size, dang. What is she even doing here?? Oddly enough, that's supposed to be Selven. How nice of her to help the Republic before she died. Shame, guess we'll have to kill her again on Taris to make up the favor. BTW, so nice of the journalist the Repuiblic hired to interview bastilla to pick up arms and defend the ship. I also really like the new Twilek Sith Captain! Adds some really nice diversity to the sith ranks. I have to wonder though, who thought she would be fit for battle with her arm so damaged? As Bruh and Revan limp their way to victory, fighting against odds clearly meant for a Jedi and not two republic soldiers to be dealing with, we come across a duel between a Dark Jedi and a Jedi apprentice, our first lightsaber encounter in the game! Except for some reason, Bruh keeps talking about how that's his padawan... Ya, sure thing, Bruh. We'll take you to the neurologist as soon as this mission is done with, ok buddy? (WHAT IS SHE EVEN WEARING) Unfortunately, both the Dark Jedi and the Jedi perished in the battle. Bruh is not to happy that we pointed out that she died, constantly lamenting about how she could take her on no problem... even though this was her first actual real mission. Bruh, you need help ASAP To try and make some sense of this, Bruh attempts to meditate to resolve the issue, falling back on his Jedi teaching. Ya, his nonexistant Jedi teaching. C'mon... YOU. ARE. A. SOLDIEEEEEER You're not a real Jedi, you're a ground unit! You are a general's plaything! Finally, the insanity is almost done, and I got my first level u....uhhhh wait what? OK, something is missing here, I can't quiet put my finger on it... Where the feats at? Where are the ranged attacks? I'm pretty sure a few other things are missing. If I'm not careful, I could find myself getting stuck on this menu just cause my character gained every feat to early lol And this next scene, Bruh truly reveals his insanity. He just suddenly took off his clothes (I swear I didn't do this), ran into Darth Bandon unarmed and said that the Force would protect him or something and that fate was a mysterious thing. We'll whatever, I'll let that lunatic deal with little bald. Godspeed, Bruh Finally, time for the second pa- aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand Carth is Black my god man what is even happening lol btw was the scout outfit intentional? I'll assume the extra melanin was not. To my utter shock, the Dark Stalker mod for the Endar Spire, which I modifed heavily, still works flawlessly! I have no idea how, but I'm not complaining! Well, that's it for part 1. All things considered, part 1 is tame. Like, REALLY tame, compared to what's next. If you enjoyed this blog entry, don't worry, it all goes downhill from here! Stay tuned~
  6. Revan: "Carth, a sith patrol is harrassing those people outside of our apartment, we gotta help them!"

    Carth: "You're right, don't worry, I'll just throw a grenade between all of them!"

    Duros with 1 HP, 3rd degree burns and entrails falling out of abdomen: "Thankfully you were able to step in and help us, human"

    You know you questioned this whole scenario once lol 

    1. Mellowtron11


      I  always thought that Duros caught a round from the crossfire between the 2 parties.

    1. AmanoJyaku


      Probably legit. He tried to jump into someone else's body in the last film...

      ... It was stupid.

  7. Bruh why his head green
  8. I love that in Kotor 2, even though it was rushed, Obsidion still couldn't be arsed to fix Revan's cardboard cape. 

  9. I haven't looked forward to a mod in years, but this broke that streak. I can't wait for this to come out! It really does feel like you're just showing me pictures of a regular area from Kotor, the quality is perfect.
  10. To anyone with AMD cards, do older games run fine on them? I've heard of a lot of issues with older games getting screwed up on AMD cards, especially games like Kotor 2 and Battlefront 2 (classic). Lots of crashing and texture abnormalities. Did you all have a smooth experience? I'm planning on getting an RX 570

  11. This may be as simple as renaming a few files, I think. Take any one MDX and MDL file that match in name (for the same item) from Shem's invisible headgear mod, then rename them to the file names you'd like to replace (l_mask_010 and l_mask_080 in this case) I don't know if Shem made the model "invisible" or just completely removed the model but you can definitely replace any mask model with his invisible models. EDIT: lol @Effixbeat me to it
  12. @Sith HolocronCan you say how Kotor  has performed on your PC ever since you got your Radeon 570? I've heard Kotor has a couple issues on AMD cards, including some specific stories with the 570.

      Sorry, I haven't seen this post until right now.  I've installed KotOR and TSL on the computer but I haven't played either of them on a consistent basis.  However, I did record the into to mrmann's Cruse of the Sith video with no problems so consider I not only was playing the game with no issues but also recording with FRAPS at the same time.  What sort of issues have you heard about regarding the 570?

    2. Mephiles550


      Things like resolution errors, crashing, shading issues, texture abnormalities, and the like. It may not necessarily be the GPU but the specific AMD drivers being used that are responsible.

  13. @DeathScepter Maybe, I don't really know. I've never released a mod before, and since I'm basically just editing a few things from a pre-existing mod, I don't know if I'd be allowed to release it. Plus I'd have to learn the ins and outs of making my own TSL-patcher based mod.
