  1. Well. that's a replay of the Mass Effect Trilogy done. That ending still leaves a bad taste in the mouth...

      Then that's probably why we don't see a whole lot of mods for Mass Effect. And even then, most of the stuff we see are cosmetic mods.

      I did a replay maybe 2 years ago... I used "JohnP's Alternate MEHEM" for the ending, as it basically was the stock ending but only destroy - and Shepard puts Anderon's name up at the end. Not the best ending but it was worlds better than the stock ending or the Extended Cut. There was another mod that made it so Citadel DLC was basically an epilogue, no references to the war or anything like that. It made for an enjoyable "after the credits" kind of experience.

      I think there was also a mod that removed the kid from the vent in the beginning.... And another where a bunch of people made 4k textures for almost everything in the game.

      Can't fix all of the stupid in ME3, but to be fair there's a lot of it. Anything involving Cerberus makes me want to put a brick through my skull.

      You ever try the fan mod Mass Effect Happy Ending Mod or MEHEM for short?

      Oh yeah, I used expanded galaxy in this playthrough, it added quite a bit to the experience, as did Priority: Earth overhaul. That one really surprised me, they fixed a lot of bugs and added cut content, added new music to the combat encounters and other small details that made the level feel a lot more potent. Even gave Harbinger some lines, which was nice!

      I used that in combination with the original MEHEM once and it was quite a nice combination. I honestly don't know why I decided to use the vanilla extended cut ending this time. But, at least I still got to enjoy the Citadel DLC. Definitely the best part of ME3 and gave us this brilliant track:

  3. Hello there! At long last, I'm pleased to release the first teaser for Echoes of the Past! I'm incredibly happy with how production on this film is going. Everything about it is a considerable step up from The Soldier's Destiny, from creating new animations in 3DsMax, VFX shots and my own knowledge and capabilities with modding the game. I'm really excited to finally start showing this film off before its release in (hopefully) late Spring/early Summer this year. Enjoy! ~ DV

      @Mellowtron11 when it's ready ;) 

  5. If you're referring to his mdl and mdx files, they are: - p_candba.mdl/mdx -p_candbb.mdl/mdx -p_candh.mdl/mdx. You can re-extract them from KOTOR Tool under Kotor 1 - BIFs - Aurora Model & Aurora Model Extension.
  6. I would say the unmasked model needs a bit of work, particularly with the scar being mirrored on both sides of the face, but the hooded & masked version is pretty sweet. Nice work!
  7. I still use that mod to this day in my machinima films, great work! Well, since this mod's release, I've learnt a lot more in regards to scripting, and now using 3Ds Max to create custom VFX sequences (spaceships, etc.). So, I may one day - time permitting - revisit this mod (and do my own take on other cutscenes, too), but we shall see.
  8. https://www.pcgamer.com/cyberpunk-2077-is-delayed/ Well, I had a feeling it was coming. Gutted I won't be able to play it as soon as originally hoped, but if it means the game will be a more perfectly polished experience then I'm happy to wait.

      Damn shame, because they make great games & their consumer-friendly approach has always been well received. Hopefully the amount of tension this has garnered will force them to approach the crunch in a healthy & reasonable fashion.

      Except that time they threatened supposed TW2 pirates with lawsuits unless they handed over a bag of cash (up to €1000 apparently). They soon realised that probably wasn't the best way to win friends and influence people and did a complete 180. They also used the horribly invasive DRM Starforce for the original release of TW1.

      Admittedly, that wasn't the best tactic on CDPR's part at all. But, I find it hard to sympathize with these alleged pirates who pirated from (at the time) an up and coming game studio who was relying on the success of The Witcher games to stay in business. Not saying they are perfect, by any means, but they are a far cry from the likes of Bethesda, Activision and EA these days, I just hope they don't devolve during this crunch period on Cyberpunk.

  9. Playing The Witcher 1 the first time before a play-through of 2&3 and...YIKES. The story is good but the gameplay is absolutely killing it for me.

      The gameplay is AWFUL but the story is great. It kinda grows on you in a sick demented way. I jokingly referred to it as gaming Stockholm syndrome.

  10. On the whole, season one of The Mandalorian was absolutely fantastic. Given how divisive the Disney produced Star Wars films have been, it's great to see the majority of fans really enjoying some new Star Wars content again. Bring on season two!

      It started out good and ended up great. I hope they can keep this up.

      I was happy with The Mandalorian.  Too bad that we'll have to wait until Fall 2020 but at least that will give them plenty of time to do some great things. 

    3. Effix

      It was awesome, I watched almost every episode twice, but I'll binge them all again in a while. Yes, quite a wait until season 2.

  11. Six episodes in and I am absolutely loving "The Witcher" Netflix series. I absolutely adore the games, read bits of the books and it's been great so far!

  12. I...honestly don't know how I felt. There were some visually stunning moments and exciting set-pieces, but the story was all over the place. Incredibly convoluted and rushed, especially the first hour. There's a whole trilogy's worth of story in this film, it's a shame we didn't get that adapted properly over three films as apposed to cramming it all into the last one. I thought it was good to finally see Rey, Finn and Poe together off on an adventure, they had a lot of chemistry, just wish we had gotten more of it. Overall, while I think I need to see it again, I can definitely say I'm very underwhelmed with what we got.
  13. You thought the last image was bad enough? Well...

      For those wondering, this was actually the result of my first attempt at creating a custom animation in 3Ds Max and importing it into the game. Not perfect but it's a start!

      I've been avoiding spoilers but I've heard a lot of good stuff about this series. I don't have that disney channel, but will have something to look forward to streaming it when it is available elsewhere.

      I'll look for it somewhere else. At least buy the season on Amazon. I definitely want to see it.

  16. To open and read ncs files, you'll be needing DeNCS. It de-compiles scripts them back to nss format which is readable and editable. Then, you can use either KOTOR Scripting Tool or the "TXT" button within the menu of KOTOR Tool to open them. Once you've written your own script, make sure you export/compile it as an ncs otherwise the game can't read it. Afraid I can't be of any help with your AI scripts specific questions, but I hope that helps get the ball rolling.

      Looking forward to seeing this series. Been hearing good things about this show so far.

  19. Christ, can we not go one Star Wars film thread without moaning about Rian Johnson and TLJ? I think the majority of us are in the same camp: movie was not good, moving on. At any rate, I can't say I'm upset over this getting cancelled. Game of Thrones was one of my favourite shows, until the absolute mess that was Season 8 dropped.
  20. If there are any aspiring voice actors on here that I haven't work with before, then you might be interested in this. Two new roles open for my next film: https://www.castingcall.club/projects/kotor-machinima-roland-wann

  21. Joker was phenomenal. Highly recommend.

      Looking forward to seeing it later this month.

  22. Anyone else tried out Greedfall yet? Game went completely under my radar but after seeing some gameplay and hearing positive things about it (considering it was made by a very small dev team) I decided to try it out and after my first five or so hous I'm pleasantly surprised so far. It's by no means perfect, very rough around the edges but it feels a lot like Dragon Age: Origins which is always a good thing.

  23. Fantastic work, DP. I'll definitely be including this in my films if you ever release it. I think I preferred Option 2 but it looks great regardless. The changes to the camera angles such as when Mission types at the console is great, too.
  24. Hey everyone! After a very long two months of commitments to other things outside KOTOR, I'm finally properly back. Episode II: Echoes of the Past has officially entered production! ~ DV
