    Blog #61 - I need a tutorial for a G0-T0 voice filter

    I'm sure it is. However I wasn't suggesting the use of it, and was indicating that since I used it or something like it, the loss of it and the editing program makes it impossible to share the program in it's full form. I altered it anyway. I can also see the blog now with that latest link. Odd that I couldn't with the others.

    Blog #61 - I need a tutorial for a G0-T0 voice filter

    3 is definitely much better. The reverb I think is so much closer to the original (assuming that's what was used), yet still a bit high (or perhaps more accurately it's a bit high with the echo part). Though it may actually be fine, but the other portions need adjustment. It sounds more like it's coming through over a PA system (might want to take note of those settings). The original has a more... mechanical sound with a small amount of reverb. What seems like reverb, could simply be a "x room size" effect and not actual reverb. Perhaps, and this part is pure guess work w/o my fav program, achieving the mechanical effect could be by making it so that the voice is "too loud" so that it gets a bit distorted when the voice gets loud. G0-T0 has always seemed to have a bit of a distorted voice sound when he gets agitated and "raises his voice". A program I played with for a long time and very highly recommend is Syntrillium Cool Edit Pro. P.S. When I click your link to the HK filter, I get: Sorry, there is a problem The page you requested does not exist Error code: 1S160/2
  3. Well, uniws (universal widescreen) is what I use for KotOR 1. I have the CD version, so I use it straight up following the instructions here: http://www.wsgf.org/article/star-wars-knights-old-republic Regardless of the version, use the HUD fix listed in the instructions of that link. For Steam/GoG version, I'd recommend following the instructional video posted by our other resident mod reviewer Xuul found here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9SKMzwKE34E. I forget what I did with K2. I think it was the steps here: http://www.wsgf.org/dr/star-wars-knights-old-republic-ii-sith-lords. If none of that works, try Xuul's K2 instructions here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pSiVC92dJHI

    The Last Jedi SPOILER DISCUSSION

    It was a two fighter escort for each transport. That isn't sacrifice, that's a job, just like the attack carried out on the Star Destroyers when the Resistance was escaping. Delaying the AT-ATs was a type of sacrifice, yes, but it wasn't a reckless or pointless one like Finn's would have been. Finn would have failed and his death would have been pointless. The Air speeders on Hoth were helping the Rebels escape (which wasn't going to fail), just as all of the Resistance pilots in the speeders were trying to do, but failed to do. If you want, you could say any attempt to fight the Empire was a sacrifice. Yet were the sacrifices pointless or not? That is what was pointed out by that tweet I posted, if anyone actually took the time to read it all. And the mission on Endor wasn't a suicide mission. It was a covert op to take out a barely defended shield generator. The whole "Rey is a Mary Sue" is so incorrect. HH, you contradicted yourself by saying she is a Mary Sue and then you say "she did LITERALLY NOTHING". A "Mary Sue" is a character whom everybody loves and who does everything right. Practically perfect in every way, but to such a degree that the character becomes almost a parody. Or more directly: A Mary Sue is an idealized and seemingly perfect fictional character. Often, this character is recognized as an author insert or wish fulfillment. They can usually perform better at tasks than should be possible given the amount of training or experience, and usually are able through some means to upstage the main protagonist of the story, such as by saving the hero. Rey, is none of that nor did she do any of that. If Rey *was* a Mary Sue, she would have done and won everything. But she didn't. She didn't save the Resistance, she didn't turn Kylo, she didn't kill Snoke. She found Luke, flew the Falcon as Chewie's copilot, fought the Dark Guard *with* Kylo's aid, and lifted rocks. She's stubborn and headstrong, like when she foolishly races off to try to turn Kylo, walking right into Snoke's trap (much like Luke rushing off to face Vader on Bespin). Being able to use the Force and fight a partially trained and heavily wounded Kylo on Starkiller base with no training is not being a Mary Sue. Snoke's death being drug out... may have been an attempt at comedy, though I didn't find it funny. And I'm not convinced we're left with nothing. I'm not convinced that was it. It did show his overconfidence (a common theme in SW). "It's that we got no backstory AND no meaningful existence in both movies..." YET. Take note that the image of the first Jedi in the middle of the center of the temple room on Ach-To looks an awful lot like Snoke. Or he's really a nobody, so it doesn't matter. Basically he's just a pawn. In the TLJ novelization, Sonke says that he was Force sensitive at a young age being able to see premonitions of the future with constant reiterations of himself as the fulcrum (something that plays a central role in or is in the center of a situation or activity). Meaning he was just a pawn to get the real scenario started. There's more to it. There's also the RJ SW trilogy to come out, which could very well go into detail about Snoke. His black stone ring has a connection to Vader and a possible connection to the ancient Sith. Finally, you're assuming he *is* dead. I enjoy the channel Star Wars Theory. The guy does a lot of theorizing to make sense of things. And he reasons on it well, without saying "this is fact". How did the New Republic fail? Well, IIRC that's explained in the comics. Or it is possibly to be revealed more in the new Vader comics. Regardless, unless it's mentioned in the new animated series or Ep9, it's one of those things where the movies are relying on the comics and books to fill in the gaps. Before the comics were simply fans filling in the gaps with Lucas' approval. I've also noticed, like the OT and PT novelization, the movie makes more sense when those are read (as well as multiple viewings of the ST). But I partly agree, why rebuild something that failed again. Maybe something new? Maybe find that balance and achieve peace? Ehhh. It's too much crammed into three movies. Or at least, as I said, we're used to the EU supporting the movies, not the movies and the EU supporting each other. Ep9 is supposed to bring everything together. So we'll have to see. Until then, do some theory crafting of your own. Don't wait for it to be spoon fed to you. Read, reason, and theorize. Until you are given the answer from the official source, make it make sense to you.

    SW-The Old Republic-Worth it or not...?

    That and novel also talks about Bastila and her child (son I think). K2 can give the impression that Revan immediately left for the Unknown Regions, but really, there's nothing to indicate that. And the Knight story is the continuation of the whole Revan story (from the standpoint of what happened when he came across the emperor at the end of the Mandalorian War in the Unknown Regions). That story goes K1 -> K2 -> Novel -> Knight story (with Taral V and Maelstrom Prison flash points Pub side -> Boarding Party and The Foundry flash points Imp side before or after Chapter 2)-> the rest of SWTOR to KotET end (doesn't matter if anyone didn't like the story, that's the story).

    SW-The Old Republic-Worth it or not...?

    I'm still subbed to SWTOR. Have been since early access. The complaints on the forums are like they've pretty much always been: mostly folks that don't know what they really want or need, nor understand what it takes to make those things. To me it's been worth it. I'm a single player person myself, and while I enjoy group stuff, I love the nice balance between the two. I play STO as well, and while I like the F2P model of that game, the rest doesn't even compare to SWTOR. STO doesn't keep me engaged for more than a few minuets if there's an event. SWTOR on the other hand can keep me engaged for hours every day. Your questions about the Exile are kind of answered in the Revan novel. And the Exile being female was confirmed two years before SWTOR was started up, same with Revan.

    Apeiron

    There's the proof of it's existence in the twitter post in the video and in the description for the video, as well as other links. Perhaps I misunderstand what there is no proof of. Or maybe you're having a bad day and need some cheering up?

    Apeiron

    The author of the video of the Bastila model said that it's not made for this remake, but was made by someone that was recently made part of the team, before they became part of the team. I personally am not expecting anything out of this. I am not watching it myself either. I am impressed with some stuff that I have seen. I hope it works out though, whether they're "doing it right" or not. After all, restoring K2 seemed a hopeless endeavor for a while, much less a fully fleshed out M4-78, and an M4 that was compatible with the aforementioned restoration.

    I was contemplating how this is viewed in light of the new changes to the rules regarding porting, uploading, etc. Though, after going over this thread again, it doesn't seem to be on the same low level as the K2 orange mod, or mods of similar and lower quality. YouTube, out of it's oddly selected video suggestions for me, recommended this video (I haven't seen any kotor stuff in a really long time). I finally gave in and checked it out. It looks like it's coming along. However it's taking a really long time, though that doesn't really speak to where they're really at, just what's available publicly (or however they're handling it). I feel like I've mentioned this before: EA loves money. I wonder if they realize just how much they could easily rake in by doing a remake of K1, let alone K1 and 2. The cost of remaking both would be made back 10x over with K1 remake purchases alone.
  11. A few things here: First, awesome job with listing the mods you're using. And good job with the post's setup. Please do not post the same thing in two different threads. Make a new topic thread in the correct area. It keeps things tidy. You can get help there.

    K1 Endgame Cutscene Improvements

    When inside the temple, it's nothing but water outside too, and that runs smoothly as well. I agree that it's not likely *the* cause, which DP has pretty much confirmed. I've often wondered if part of it is what's causing the temple texture to shine (I forget what KotOR uses for that(shaders?)) is contributing. But Manaan has a shine to it so that doesn't really make sense. I had also wondered about the fact that parts of the temple are different pieces (and as revealed the elements on those parts) might be part of the cause. I have always noticed the lines of light in the shadow at the beginning of that segment.

    K1 Endgame Cutscene Improvements

    Something I've learned is that sometimes a game can be taxed in FPS simply due to the Engine. The engine itself can only handle so much and will cause FPS drops. It was SWTOR that I found out about that. The current lead... head... person for SWTOR Kieth Kanning mentioned in a live stream that some of the War Zone and Operation FPS issues are due to the engine being taxed. Since the engine KotOR uses is designed for the original Xbox, I'm not surprised at all that there is FPS issues when there seemingly shouldn't be. In this instance, I would say the water has something to do with it as well since you still had FPS issues with that hardware and only the 4 officers. Really, the whole thing shouldn't be surrounded by water anyway. It's always bothered me because it's inaccurate. You're not teleported to a building out in the middle of the ocean nor are you 500+ft in the air. There should be visible land. Maybe some low res texture land to make up half/most of where the water is. Perhaps you could get away with a mostly flat looking/not animated ocean and low res "land" texture. Make it look distant as it should, yet not like it's miles away. Additional details like the crashed republic ships and other features are up to the discretion of the modder.

    The Last Jedi SPOILER DISCUSSION

    I get that. So many don't care or even know about the EU any more now than they did before. It's definitely not a genius idea to place the explanations only there. But that's part of my point about the other films of the trilogy or stand alone films. They could very well fill in the gaps that the EU already fills. And if they don't, that still doesn't make it a movie or franchise destroyer as so many make it to be. And who knows how much things will change if Kennedy is removed from her position. I'm much less inclined to support her anymore, but that's based on biased media, and anyone that's smart knows to take what the media says lightly.

    The Last Jedi SPOILER DISCUSSION

    Blast it! I know I had two different links. I made sure of it. Guess I didn't hit the keys like I thought I did. Fine. This is what the second link was SUPPOSED to be: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1kjEnDj7K30 That video goes with the third one I posted (the 30min one). TLJ wasn't to redeem anything. That's a false expectation because TFA didn't meet, *your* expectation, therefore TLJ didn't meet your expectation. Now, I've already stated why TLJ has been difficult to take in my previous post, so I'm not gong to repeat it. When ANH came out, we never got any explanation about what the Old Republic was or where the Empire came from. Nothing about Sidious, Vader, why Luke was on Tatooine and Leia on Alderaan. There was no info on where the Rebels got the Death Star plans. We never got any explanations as to what the Clone Wars was about, or why it happened. We got vague answers as to what the Jedi were, and learned little about the Force and it's limits. There wasn't any mention of Stih in the movies. We NEVER got the name of Yoda's species or his home world from any source. The only thing that was answered: Who is the father of Luke and Leia. THAT'S IT! And when did we learn that information? We learned it about Luke in ESB, and then about Leia in RotJ, with the bonus of "they're siblings and were separated for their protection". If you're going to complain about not having answers, then you need to do so for ALL things we didn't get answers for, especially if we didn't get them when people expected to get them. These arguments of "we didn't get answers" are really "we didn't get the answers we wanted, or did we get them right away". Not giving the answers some viewers wanted, especially right away, isn't new to Star Wars. It's not new to film making period. When you spend time giving answers, you lose time on telling the story. You have the writing, then the rewriting, then more rewriting. The script goes through that many times. You eventually have to choose between giving all the answers now, and not having much in the next film but padded stuff, or extend the answers out to the others. There's also the questions "Does it really matter now to know this? Is it truly relevant to telling the current narrative?" They don't say "Some fans want to know this information, so cram it all in." We only got that information as each next movie was made. Even then, it was only a little bit. Most came from the EU and the movie novelization. And until there was a movie/novel or EU explanation, the answer was a simple "I dunno." That's what you do in Sci-Fi, you explain some things away, or just go with it. It is fantasy after all. TLJ's lead up is to what will happen next. There's plenty for it to lead into. What is Rey going to do with the Jedi texts? What will become of the Jedi? Will there be Jedi? What of the Resistance? What of the New Republic? What will happen to them? What did they do with Leia after Fisher died? Was Snoke or his species the first Jedi (he looks an awful lot like the image in that round pool of the first Jedi on Ach-To). A lot of answers can be found in the new EU. The new EU has direct correlation with the movies, unlike the old EU. They're all the same cannon. There is no movie cannon > EU cannon. Movie cannon = EU cannon.
