  1. The early Humanoid Droid animations are borked- somehow. So i open up the model to see if there is anything to salvage. Turns out he has most/ all of his animations and from what i can tell they are properly named. (opened the newer model to compare) On a side note, why are the animations for the droids named differently from human characters/ even HK, paradoxically? Somehow the model just sticks to one/ likely last played animation and never uses any other appropriate one. I tried process of elimination to see if its a specific animation, but he just latches to a random one and gets stuck on it.\ What should i be looking into. Im not very competant with these tool. Is it a specific animation(dont think so), a skeleton issue, rigging issue, not linked right. Why would a model spazz out? Shouldnt it just play named one and t-pose if its missing? How do you troubleshoot this stuff?

  6. I would like to assign a few new textures to surfaces for 3d module, since the original just uses the same texture for multiple surfaces. I want different textures for those surfaces. Does the process differ in any way from modifying a character/ object 3d model? In Blender specifically. Basically i need to modify the 3d model, kinda like this mod. How complicated is this going to be? Thank you.
  7. I have a good deal of K1/2 Concepts scrounged up(Original game art for environments, characters, ships, etc) Id like to make it into Loading screens. For K2, its not an issue. K1 needs its Loading elements redesigned. Not sure if that has to do with scripting or modeling. I think i saw some redesigned loading screens in Member Gallery a while back. Basically the windows above the loading bar need to be way larger (aka K2) and text box needs moving.
  8. No not really. If i ever get the chance to mod again, i have other things in mind.
  9. I see. Are you positive or is that a guess. There are not that many bones, but doing it per every model. Edit:Huh,according to this thread, you are correct. You need to re-rig the model. Fugde. Was hoping to streamline this. Well back to MDLOps, i guess.
  10. So i'm getting blender modeling(again), baby steps. So far so good. When i try to port armor models from K2 to K1, sometimes animations break(like half break). Ok, so i searched the forums, used MDLOps and fixed the model. Ok but why. Why cant Kotor Blender figure things out on its own, why cant it export it right. Is MDLOps mandatory for ports? Where is the problem. Some node(s) misnamed. Doesnt even seem to break every model, just ones that need separate supermodel.

  13. View File KOTOR1 HD ICON PACK ver1.0 Pretty much, what is says, the mod contains higher resolution versions for most of the item icons in KOTOR 1. Namely - Armor, Weapons, Headgear, Shields and other Usables, Droid Gear, Belts, Implants and other miscellaneous items. Feel free to modify and reuse. Giving Credit is appreciated. Would have liked to include crystals too, but oh well. Maybe next update. Needless to say this works best with stuff like: KotOR High Resolution Menus 1.4 by "ndix" - Cheers and Happy Playing!!!

  16. Currently having trouble with N-DReW's K1 Gameplay Improvement DEMO. The mod causes a hard crash for me at a quest on Korriban. SInce, there doesnt seem to be any report of it here, i'm guessing its a me issue. Or a steam issues, why is that versions so crap!!! Anyway, this brings up a good question, where do you begin to look for conflicts, or script issues>? Any threads, discussing methods of troubleshooting?
  17. Its just a texture mod. It doesnt really modify any file names, or models. Most likely its caused by the Widescreen mod, or the Game Version you are using.
  18. I'm getting a crash at the tomb of TULAK HORD. Jorak Uln's model is missing and The game crashes to desktop soon after. Dont really have any other mods, certainly nothing that would cause this. How do i troubleshoot? Probably should have posted this here.?
  19. Just trying to add some depth, to some of the main charakters, npc's and armors. Now that upscaling textures is a possibility. Mostly, i just got excited at the thought of such an old game, even supporting normal maps. The end result, is not too bad actually, as it adds some nice definition and shading. But, when viewing the model from far away, the aliasing is way too distracting. Almost, as if there are no mips. Too bad, there is no other way to convert tga's to tpc's. Oh well, there's always bump maps, at least. Unless, that has some nasty surprises.
  20. Thanks, for the responce. I've been tinkering with NORMAL maps, for the past few day, but i think i hit a road block. Everything works as it should, however the end result is not particularly impressive. The normal map .TPC introduces a substantial amount of aliasing to the model. Aliasing that is not a problem, when using Bump map TGA's, for instance. I would assume, the problem lies with mipmaps, created by the program tga2tpc converter. The Aliasing is probably introduced, when the texture is downsampled for the mipmaps. Since, no such aliasing exist for the .tga files, i guess the game's engine just has a better algorithm for creating its own mip maps. Any advice? Short of adding more blur to the original texture or forcing some kind of GPU antialiasing, im stumped on what to do.
  21. Can someone please explain to me what I'm doing wrong? I read up on threads, dealing with implementing normal maps to diffuse textures. Seemed straight-forward enough, but apparently I'm the stupidest person alive. I can get the Normal to work fine, but only where the model already supports it. Like Hutts, for KOTOR1, for instance. Near as I can tell, I am screwing up model conversion. As for altering files with MDLOps, or MDLEdit, i kept trying to enable the tangentspace 1 line, any way, I read about. No luck. Please?

  24. Ok, so i remastered all the art assets, im going to for now. And also tested it for 1080p and 1440p. How would i go about, making sure it works for all resolutions/aspects? Also, should i compress the files into tpc's, or what? Help me out here, its me first mod.
  25. This will be my first published mod, the aim of witch is to upscale all game UI elements. - all menus, the gameplay GUI, loading screens and icons. Personally, i always thought, that the terrible low resolution UI just doesn't work anymore and dates the game horribly. Ndix UR’s brilliant ui mod was a fantastic inspiration, but also all the HD work on this site. KOTOR was my favorite gaming experience, once upon a time. And it make me very happy to try and contribute to its continual enjoyment. Any feedback, thoughts, ideas, and perhaps slight assistance would be greatly welcomed. For one thing, can anyone point me to software, that allows for seamless viewing of KOTOR models and textures in a 3D frame with free camera?
