  1. 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~
  2. 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

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

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

      ... It was stupid.

  4. I love that in Kotor 2, even though it was rushed, Obsidion still couldn't be arsed to fix Revan's cardboard cape. 

  5. 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.
  6. 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

  7. 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
  8. @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?

      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.

  9. @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.
  10. @ebmarYou notice how some areas, like the collar specifically, appear differently in our screenshots? The Bendak Starkiller texture you're using was intended for the original Mandalorian model and does not wrap properly around the Final Touch model. I'm trying to edit the texture so that it properly fits on the new model. Look at the Mandalorian textures included with the Final Touch mod, some parts were edited.
  11. @ebmarYes, with Sith Assassin gibberish voices ported over from TSL as well.
  12. Decided to try Reshade on Kotor for the first time... this hurts my eyes and it feels like the antialiasing was completely turned off (it's set to 8x). Ya... not seeing the big deal.

      Not sure about you guys but when I tried reshade on Kotor it was the worst mistake I ever made: literally felt like I applied a 1970s style VCR filter on my game whilst paying my FPS for it.

      @N-Drew Sigh... That's because the person who made that preset probably used a 1970s VCR filter shader. That's literally a thing it can do.

      Reshade is a tool that allows you to do ANYTHING to your game's pixel shader. You can change every variable in each shader in your preset to whatever you want.

      Why does everyone keep blaming the tool itself instead of the poorly made presets? 

      What you are saying is akin to claiming game mods suck because of a crappy skin someone made of Jolee.

      The similarity between reshade and modding is that most people who play kotor only know how to "use" it, not how it works. The majority of people who download anything besides a texture mod, and even then, dont know the purpose behind any file in their override. It's the same with reshade, they dont know how it works. They just download it and put it in their kotor folder 

      The difference between reshade and modding is that the majority of kotor mods, I think, are fairly good. The majority of kotor reshade presets available, from what i can tell, are ass.
