  1. Ok, SLM has been fixed. Stupid mistake. 😞

    Redownloading and reinstalling would probably work but that would be messy, I think.

    You'll get alot of brown error messages because all the stuff is already there. But it will fix the global.jrl  entries so the quests show up.

  2. Don't download SLM 2021 until I can get a fixed version up (tonite).

    Sorry folks, I goofed. Been a long time and I'm really rusty. 

    if you've already installed it, I am really sorry but the two lightsaber quests won't work properly. Will post when fixed version is up.

  3. Aight. 

    What would be the 5 or so absolute most required mods and/or graphics upgrades that someone who hasn't played K1 for something like 7 years?? Is there a "one mod to rule them all" as far as graphics upgrades?? Starting a K1 playthrough to determine what exactly I need to accomplish for a brand new saber mod that WON'T be SotOR.

    All suggestions considered.

      Um, no not that I know of. 

      I had just played the opening Endar Spire part and had to save/load because I couldn't open that door that leads to the escape pods.  Then walking with arrow keys stopped working, but I could still walk forward by holding down both mouse buttons. 

      Vanilla game is sooo buggy.

    3. DarthParametric

      DarthParametric

      Oh, the walking thing is just the refresh rate issue. Cap the framerate to 60fps and that will stop. Never heard of the door problem though.

    4. Kaidon Jorn

      Kaidon Jorn

      Allllright, will do. Thanks again.

  4. Uuum, are my mods going to be approved? Never used to take this long.

    1. DarthParametric

      DarthParametric

      Most of the moderators/admins are AWOL. You'll probably get swifter action jumping on the Discord channel and complaining, but in the meantime try pinging @Snigaroo.

    2. Kaidon Jorn

      Kaidon Jorn

      Oh. 

      Yeah I realize this site isn't as hopping as it used to be. I will try that. Thanks.

  5. That's it. I can't work on this anymore.

    Bluuuhhhhhh.

      No worries. Just didn't want to come off as a thief.

    Took all day just to get the power button in the right place, re arrange the map, reskin, and export. Then to convert the saber to Crazy34's blade models. Best I could do really, not being too savvy anymore.

      @LordMerek, it seems KJ is making his mods compatible with @Crazy34's new lightsaber model.  (Note how the saber lights up the room?)  Although if I've misread the picture, hopefully @Kaidon Jorn will correct me.

    3. Kaidon Jorn

      Kaidon Jorn

      Yeah, I converted all the SLM sabers and my default saber replacements to have Crazy34's new blade models and ambient lighting.

      That scene never looked so cool, no?

    4. Kaidon Jorn

      Kaidon Jorn

      The only thing that needs doing for default replacement sabers is to map, skin and rig a new yellow double bladed saber that I made from an older SotOR saber. 

      Then that will be ready to release. Now if I could find the time and patience.

  13. Hey well guess what? My pc just crashed and wont come on anymore. I’m guessing power supply but don’t know for sure. Was actually testing something in TSL and it just shut off. dead. capoot. Guess im done for awhile.

    1. AmanoJyaku

      AmanoJyaku

      Feeling your pain. I have to RMA my laptop because it crashes when the battery goes below 40%. Guess that's better than it exploding...

    2. Kaidon Jorn

      Kaidon Jorn

      Welp, i’ll see today if i’m right. I can’t imagine it’s something worse.

      my computer is my whole life practically so if i go completely broke now at least I’ll still have a computer to tool around with

    3. Kaidon Jorn

      Kaidon Jorn

      Back up and running, was the power supply as suspected. But now its (windows) been running really slow and I uninstalled alot of stuff and am trying to consolidate and optimize.

      May end up reinstalling windows and everything else.

  14. I've forgotten how to switch hilt models with mdlops. ☹️

    Can you believe it?!

    1. DarthParametric

      DarthParametric

      You don't need to do that any more. That was only required with ye olde MDLOps. MDLEdit and MDLOps v1.0 and beyond can compile sabers properly just like any other model.

    2. Kaidon Jorn

      Kaidon Jorn

      Um so I need MDLedit?

      ...is 1.0 new?

    3. DarthParametric

      DarthParametric

      In both cases the downloads in the Tools section are out of date. You can get the most recent beta version of MDLEdit from this post. You can get the most recent version of new MDLOps from its Github repo.

  15. Listen to Khruangbin

    That is all.

  16. So whats a good 3d modeling program these days?

    2. Kaidon Jorn

      Kaidon Jorn

      Just got Blender.

      Oh hell, I'm gunna make some laaightsaaabuuurs!

      lol

  17. would anyone happen to have a saved game at 231TEL after bao-dur has joined?

    1. LoneWanderer

      LoneWanderer

      This pack from Downloads section have it. It is for TSLRCM 1.8.3 + old version of M4-78, though.

    2. Kaidon Jorn

      Kaidon Jorn

      That won't matter, as long as I can get through the conversation

  18. 2nd attempt with Steam TSL and TSLRCM but again it crashes when Bao-Dur is introduced.

    231TEL.mod

    231sntry.dlg

    Don't get it...shouldn't be any conflicting files. 

    I renamed 231TEL.mod to 185_231TEl.mod to try to skip over it but it still crashes during that dialog.

    bleh

      Ok..so I kept a save game leaving Citadel Station and put that into a fresh install of the 4 disc version, got past that part that kept crashing, then resaved...

      Now I'm planning to reinstall Steam version with the TSLRCM from DS (here) then SLM and whatever texture mods I might want.

      Hope this works...I AM determined to make it work for STEAM version since the native 1920x1080 is so nice.

      Your best bet is to follow the K2 Mod Builds as seen on the KOTOR subreddit.  If you have additional questions, make a thread so folks can steer you in the right direction.

    4. Kaidon Jorn

      Kaidon Jorn

      Aw forget it. Not going through all that again.

      I can't make SLM work for Steam TSLRCM, it just won't work.

      So the question is what can I fix or do for SLM on the 4disc version that would be worth the trouble? 

      I don't know...

       

      Suffice to say, SLM is NOT compatible with the Steam version of the game.

      SLM requires the 4 disc version and the stand alone TSLRCM mod from here because that's what I built it on.

      Sorry, I tried.

  19. I don't understand. 

    I recomplied a .mod but now I can't find it. Save path for Kotor Tool is desktop but nothing is there. Search of my hard drive finds nothing. What am I doing wrong?

      DarthTyren

      Are you running KotOR Tool as admin? The folder you're saving the .mod in isn't set to Read-Only?

    3. Kaidon Jorn

      Kaidon Jorn

      i think so yes, and I'm not sure.

      I will look.

    4. Kaidon Jorn

      Kaidon Jorn

      Ok.

      I was able to compile a .mod which went into KT's global templates folder.

      Aaaand I figured out that to install and play SLM properly I believe I'm going to have to make two seperate patchers...

      One for TSLRCM's workshop folder (modules, 2da's, dialogs) and one for base games override (textures, models, utc's and uti's)

      Package them together to be run seprately back to back. 

      YAY.

  20. Yo ho ho.

    Can I get someone to remind me where I'm supposed to put DeNCS? Need to decompile a couple scripts and I can't remember how I got it working before. 

    1. DarthParametric

      DarthParametric

      You can put it anywhere. It needs the game-specific nwscript.nss and requires Java. That's it.

  21. So....HEYYYY! 

    I'm back...sort of.

    So I recently broke down and bought TSL on STEAM with TSLRCM 1.8.5 and have been trying to play through that without breaking it...

    No luck.

    I keep crashing at 231TEL.mod right after Atton's dialog in the shuttle and the little movie clips of the shuttle getting shot down.

    First instinct was to blame it on Bao-Dur. But I dont think that's it. 

    Has there been any issues reported with this .mod file or Bao-Dur crashing the game when he shows up?

    Starting to drive me batty as I DO happen to be working on an update of TSSM, trying to get that mod working with Steam's version. Been a learning process for sure...

    Also, the big question...should I just be installing my saber mods into TSLRCM's workshop directory straight away?!? 

    When I go to start working on SLM's compatibility with TSLRCM that might be helpful info.

    Anyway..I might be back for awhile to try to get my old saber mods running for Steam.

      The Steam version is fine, just don't use the Workshop for anything more than texture mods or if you're only using TSLRCM(+m4-78EP). If you want to use any other mods as well, then either install them into the TSLRCM workshop folder or just skip the workshop entirely and get TSLRCM from here as well.

      As for the Steam version itself: It does work fine most of the time and comes with handy upgrades like native widescreen support. However, it also introduces new bugs like broken shaders or broken fog. For some of those fixes are floating around, for others they don't.

      So I ended up using the legacyPC version on Steam which is identical to the CD version, but that's up to you.

    3. DarthTyren

      DarthTyren

      I also had problems with the Steam version at 231TEL - the game would constantly crash. It stopped doing that after I reverted back to legacypc. Now, I just put up with the fact that I will never be able to play the game in perfect widescreen.

    4. Kaidon Jorn

      Kaidon Jorn

      Huh.

      That sucks.

      I want that 1920x1080 stuff.

      LegacyPC you say?

      I shall investigate.

  22. All my mods here on Deadlystream are all now up for grabs. Change them, fix them, do what you want. You do not need my permission nor consent and you may rerelease it whereever/however you like. I do however, expect to be credited as the original author in the readme. I wont be around to see it, so it wont bother me at all, lol.

      Query: What about giving him a path like T3 has, just longer with more rooms he goes to?

    3. Kaidon Jorn

      Kaidon Jorn

      Ooh yeah I like that. so, center holoterminal, security camera room and his original spot? then he walks between the 3? OK! who will help me on the script?

      lol
