    KOTORmax bug reporting thread

    Could be it's not happy with the rooms named **** or that there's more than one of them with the same name. Is this for import or export? If you're importing, it would probably be fine to just delete the unused lines and change the room count. If you're exporting, maybe substituting the real lines from m40ad would get it to behave.

    Changing Sounds for Aliens During Dialogue in K2

    Whenever it opens the inventory editor, it sets all items to be droppable.

    Sleheyron

    Yeah, makes sense. KOTOR doesn't have the sort of engine that would let you get much out of that sort of environment anyway. Unless you were planning to have a very slow walk under the lava sea.

    Sleheyron

    Edge of the Empire described Sleheyron as volcanic, actually: I'm not sure what is up with the galaxy map description of Korriban, though. It's usually depicted more like space Egypt in other material, and it's not even particularly volcanic in KOTOR.

    JC's RAD Video Fix: TELMov03

    The third one hiding by the kiosk.

    JC's RAD Video Fix: TELMov03

    Yeah, I've looked into it before. It's not unfinished - the problem is the bones were set to render. But it's not as simple a fix as the Duros thing, unfortunately. The three main issues are that the camera is moving, the commoners have shadows, and there's dust flying around. That makes removing them from the shot a lot harder. The two options are to rotoscope the bones to change their color, which wouldn't be fun and would never look perfect, but would at least make them stand out less... or redo the whole shot. I might look into it again at some point, but I have no specific plans at the moment. It's also not especially obvious, but one of the commoners is Queen Talia.

    JC's Security Spikes for K1

    It only applies once, when picking the lock it's used on. It's not on a timer like Force powers and shields.

    Extended Korriban Arrival

    Sounds like a permissions error. You should make sure both your game directory and the mod installer folder aren't set to read only.
  9. There is a GetName() function but nothing to set it as far as I can see. Either way, it would only be possible to implement by editing every UTP file in the game, likely with many MOD inserts as well, so it's not something to be undertaken lightly. It probably could be done, though, by attaching a script for the inventory disturbed event to check if the container is empty. If so, delete it and replace it with an identical one with a different name. If the container is empty and has inventory added to it, reverse it and move the items over. It's theoretically possible.

    Changing Sounds for Aliens During Dialogue in K2

    On the main node of the dialogue, there is a flag called AlienRacOwner. This configures the default VO set to use for that file, and corresponds to the line numbers in alienvo.2da. Some aliens have more VO than others, so depending on what you're changing, you may also have to change the Emotion of each node to something they have. You'll probably also want to change the soundset, which is configured on the UTC file. That determines what sounds are used outside of dialogue, like in combat.

    MOD:JC's Security Spikes for K1

    I must be your favorite because I think I made it close to the real thing.

    MOD:JC's Security Spikes for K1

    It should, but all the security spikes currently in your inventory still won't do anything. If you remove them with KSE and then add them back in, they should be converted to the new kind.

    MOD:JC's Security Spikes for K1

    View File JC's Security Spikes for K1 Security spikes are disposable items that give the player a temporary boost to their Security skill when activated, helping them pick more difficult locks. At least, that's how it's supposed to be. That's how they work on the Xbox version, and in KOTOR 2, but security spikes don't actually do anything at all on the PC version of KOTOR 1. The cause seems to be some sort of bug in the GUI that prevents security spikes from ever appearing in their intended slot. So when interacting with a door, there isn't an option to scroll from the Security skill to security spikes, as there is in KOTOR 2. The GUI was changed for the port from Xbox to PC, and security spikes probably got left out due to oversight. I couldn't find any way to resolve the issue, though, so I came up with two alternative options. Option A Option A replicates the security spikes' intended function as best as I could manage. They’ve been given an activate item property and appear in the non-medical item slot (along with stimulants and shields). When a character activates a security spike, they receive a temporary boost to their Security skill and proceed to unlock the nearest door or container. Apart from the boost, the skill check for the lock is the same as usual: 1d20 + Security vs. the lock’s DC. Security spikes are single-use and discarded whether the character succeeds in picking the lock or not; however, they are not used up if the attempt was impossible – if there wasn’t anything in range or the lock required a special keycard, for example. Regular security spikes grant a +5 bonus and security tunnelers grant a +10 bonus. Option B Option B removes security spikes from the game, replacing them with credits. The value is equivalent to the most you could get from selling the original security spike items to a merchant. Mission’s ability to create security spikes on the Ebon Hawk is removed.

  15. Unfortunately, I don't think anything you mentioned can be edited. Everything defined in nwscript.nss is all we have to work with as far as scripting for the game, and the source for that is hard-coded. You'd have to crack the EXE to do anything about it. Yes, xoreos is an open source implementation of the entire Aurora family, including KOTOR. Everything from Neverwinter Nights to Dragon Age 2. The open source part is the key point there, as it would theoretically allow for the sort of thing you want to do when completed. It's not exactly in a playable state yet, but it might be more up your alley. And I'm sure they'd welcome any assistance.
