  1. View File KotOR II Switch Texture Restoration KotOR II Switch Texture Restoration The Switch port of KotOR II included some upscaled textures for much of the game, just like the first game. While some of these look fine, I found some of the armor and character portraits pretty bad to look at. Not as bad as K1, but still annoying at times. I'm not sure why, but these were not advertised or mentioned, and there is no way to turn them off in game. This mod restores the original textures for the character portraits, armor textures, while preserving the new UI and button prompts. Please notify me if anything is broken or you run into issues. I played many hours with this mod, but it has by no means been exhaustively tested. It should not cause any major or game-breaking issues though. This is compatible with, but does not require my KotOR II Switch Modding Framework, if you wish to use this with other mods that change textures, install this first. NOTE: Like any other mod for Switch, this requires a hacked or modded Switch with custom firmware. This can probably be adapted to firmwares other than Atmosphere, but I offer no support for them. Installation is dead simple, extract the "atmosphere" folder to the root of your SD card. If you wish to uninstall: If this is the only mod you installed: Simply delete the "0100B2C016252000" folder under atmosphere/contents/ If you installed other mods, it will depend. I would generally recommend just wiping clean for safety, or if you didn't install any other texture mods, you could delete just the "Textures" folder in override. Big thanks to JC for a ton of help with this mod. Submitter jacqylfrost Submitted 06/26/2022 Category Mods TSLRCM Compatible Yes  
  2. View File KotOR II Switch Modding Framework I wondered, why wait a few months for Aspyr to release TSLRCM when you could hack it together in a few days for fun? To that end: Switch KotOR II Modding romFS Dummy Folder 1.0.1 This is a set of files and folders designed to make modding the Switch version of KotOR II easier and more accessible to a novice user. Read to the end before using. You will need a hackable, or modchipped Switch to use this, and custom firmware must be installed, I use Atmosphere, but anything that supports romFS should be fine. If you use something other than Atmosphere you'll have to figure out where it goes, but it should be very similar. This should work just fine with the digital or physical version (when it is released) without issue. I have only tested this on the most up-to-date build at this time, 1.0.1. I will update this when the next patch is released, and hopefully again when TSLRCM is officially released. Extract the zip file, and install any mods you want to use, pointing TSLPatcher at the \Localized\English\ folder containing the dialog.tlk file. For mods that don't use TSLPatcher, copy files as directed, "romfs" is equivalent to the directory on PC containing the executable. NOTE: You may need to move files that TSLPatcher is expecting to the folder to be able to patch them. You can access them by dumping your game with nxdumptool, using romfs. Make sure you include updates when doing so. What I included should be more than sufficient for TSLRCM, however. NOTE: When you are done, move the override folder to the root of the romfs folder, i.e. the directory with the "swplayer.ini" file. Feel free to comment with what you needed, and what mod it was for, and if there is popular demand, I will add the files to this pack. The easiest way I found, was just to try installing a mod, and then check the log for errors to see what files were missing. NOTE: Long filenames cause issues with TSLPatcher, this is exacerbated by the length of the filepath for romFS modding. I recommend moving the "romfs" folder to the root of the drive and patching there, moving the folder back afterwards. Make sure to check your error log, you may manually need to copy .lip files over to override afterwards. Move textures (.tga, .txi and .tpc) to override/Textures or they won't apply At this point, copy the atmosphere folder to the root of your SD card, and you should be done. Please feel free to mention any issues you run into, or workarounds you needed, and I'll update this post. I tested a run of TSLRCM and Leilukin's Gay Handmaiden mod with great success. I have not tested the Male Exile/Disciple part of that mod, but it should work as well. Mods that involve UI likely won't work. Everything is at your own risk, you may end up with a broken save, etc. Worst case scenario, you can uninstall all mods by deleting the `0100B2C016252000` folder from `/atmosphere/contents/` Big thanks to JC for a ton of help troubleshooting, and big thanks to Zbyl2 for helping with TSLRCM-related issues.

  5. Having poked through the game's files a fair bit, my personal opinion is that this is the mobile port of the game, with the Xbox UI, for some reason, ham-fisted into it. Here's why I think that: folder in override titled "xbox_gui" Weird decomp of the dialog.tlk file, with a path that implies it comes from the IOS codebase. The folder structure in general is also very similar to the Android port. I still have no idea why they used the Xbox GUI at all, seeing as the mobile port had a perfectly functional UI, but I assume it was partially due to the fixed resolution nature of the Switch, as opposed to mobile phones which have a wide range of resolutions and aspect ratios. As you said, the textures are definitely some sort of AI upscale, that much I'm certain of. I can confirm that the base textures are actually the PC 512x512 textures, however, they have been upscaled to a staggering 1024x1024, which is why they look so bad. See below: Left is the original texture in \TexturePacks\ and right is in \override\Textures. In the description, my confusion was more regarding why they included this without even advertising it, rather than confusion about why it looked so bad, which I think is what you're getting at? Thank you for sharing, hope this is helpful info, or at least, interesting.
