  1. Hello everyone, I want to share with you my work in progress KotOR dialog overhaul project. It will be a revised dialog.tlk file for SW:KotOR v1.03, in the same spirit of Kainzorus Prime's "PC Response Moderation" Currently I am in the process of editing the dialog.tlk with all my (~7700) changes, so it's very much still a work in progress. I initially installed the "PC Response Moderation" (https://deadlystream.com/files/file/335-pc-response-moderation) and that got me inspired to do a full spelling correction and dialog review, on all (49264) lines of text in the dialog.tlk. I tried to stay true to the original lines, but some are different on purpose. But they always convey the same tone or flavor. Some dialog was so screamish or simple and some retorts were just too... "easy". I don't have a degree in English literature but some dialog appears to be written by a child. I don't want to boast but I'm really quite proud of some of the dialog that I overhauled, it's much more organic. Check out the conversation with Nico the swoop jock, or the final few arguments/banters with Carth, for instance. I put a few jokes in my edits, and some game/movie references are hidden here and there (Baldur's Gate, Pulp Fiction). Note that, except for punctuation, I only edited PC response or alien dialog, because of the human lines being voiced over. Although some may have slipped through... There are a *lot* of spelling errors in this game. You'd think they'd run this through a spellings-checker. It took about 7 months but it's done and done. (update: I'm still correcting and changing lines actually) I made changes editing the dialog.tlk and checking the actual dialog (with DLGedit) for context, and made sure my edits still fitted the reply, but if I missed a point or certain context don't hesitate to tell me. Please provide an ingame screenshot or the exact text so I know what to look for. For all spelling I used https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary as a guideline. At the moment approximately 6800 lines have been touched in some way. Below is a link to my "changelog". It carries the complete list of *all* changes (Work in progress!) I kept some of Kainzorus Prime's punctuation changes, and furthermore I: -corrected typos, misspellings and grammatically incorrect sentences. -corrected wrong, misplaced and missing punctuation. -corrected words to use Star Wars spelling. -removed leading, trailing and double spaces, and trailing enters. -added omitted words. -added a hyphen or a space to some words and removed it in others. -made many, many changes for consistency's sake (check complete transcript!) -rephrased some words and many sentences, or fleshed them out; especially in NPC banter/dialogue. I've tried to diversify some standard lines like "Goodbye" or "I want to ask you..." -rephrased most [Force Persuade] lines into more like the Jedi mind trick. -replaced some of the semicolons (;) to a comma (,) or a period (.) A semicolon should not be used in a continuous sentence. Some lines even contradict the previous one by using semicolon in one line and a comma in the next. -replaced some numbers by writing them out, or the other way around; many monetary amounts are now digits -replaced many, many cases of a hyphen/dashes (-) with a period (.) or semicolon (;) or colon (:), whatever was appropriate. There are common rules for using hyphens, I felt they were not applied there. (See https://writingcenter.unc.edu/tips-and-tools/semi-colons-colons-and-dashes) -replaced round brackets () for square brackets [] for some descriptive lines, or added them in some cases. BioWare was really inconsistent with those and I left alone many cases where they are missing. -replaced () for ** in case of descriptive sounds (burp, snort, ahem) and some interjections. I tried to make it consistent so I thought ** the best option. Excluded are actual sounds (like hmm, hmpf, raaaggh) (Onomatopoeia), which is sometimes written in Italic, but we don't have that. -replaced ALLCAPS for *asterisk* in case of emphasized (be it angry, stressed, or sarcastic) but not shouted words. It is not considered good practice to use CAPS for emphasizing words. Besides it is frowned upon, and we wouldn't want frowning. Frowning makes your face age faster. Also: -British spelling ("travelling, licence") and US spelling ("colors, rumors") are used inconsistently, I decided to leave it alone in most cases. Check the changelog, you might be pleasantly surprised about some of the changes. beta 1.01: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1zIAkaJs0Gv3Y7ug_W8itAhLOyYYqojnY beta 1.02: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1mrs86chaH3xsIr01z8ps8Sfr7PCyamSX beta 1.03: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Yx63ne2PbnWLG7_2Xc9kmtwPZJyVrDyn beta 1.04: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1WMykS1uwDXL1V7A-JgLjLzlg68Jb_8Xe I hope someone else apart from myself will find this useful/fun/interesting.

    Description of "TSLRCM Dialog Overhaul": This modification strives to correct the most noticeable errors and inconsistencies found in the dialog.tlk file of The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod (TSLRCM). The majority of the alterations are based on modern corpora, mainly affecting written speech as well as menu screens, without changing their original meanings. Some lines underwent slightly advanced changes in order to be in line with their corresponding voice-over references while some others were changed to further add context to specific situations. As this modification was originally meant for personal use only, you will also find some of my attempts at revamping the punctuation of multiple dialog lines to create a more coherent reading experience in accordance to the sound references. That includes the removal of hesitations and interruptions that are not reflected in speech. In its current state, this modification doesn't fix description errors regarding item effects and character building. For full details on the changes, please refer to the included "changes.txt" file. Due to the sheer size of the dialogue script, there is a strong possibility that errors have been overlooked in the editing process. Feel free to report cases of potential overcorrection as well. Feedback is always dearly appreciated (on Deadly Stream via private message or comment on the mod's support page). Installation: TSLRCM 1.8.5 is required. Replace the dialog.tlk file located in your game's main directory with the one from the "overhaul" folder in order to apply the modification. Certain changes may only occur upon starting a new game. In case you may want to revert the changes, just copy the included original TSLRCM dialog.tlk into the game directory.

  3. I was getting annoyed by not being able to get things to work, so I decided to do tests to figure out how exactly the system works. Here is what I've learned so far. Maybe it can help someone, or someone has something else to add to this. My testing continues (in orientation, what happens if there is an enemy, or a closed door between the first speaker and listener when conversation starts, ...), after it's done I will update this text and then it should probably go into the tutorial section. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Everything below is about TSL. When the dialog starts, these roles need to be determined: - DEFAULT_SPEAKER or OWNER - DEFAULT_LISTENER - PLAYER The terms OWNER and PLAYER may actually be used in the Listener (but not Speaker) field in the dialog editor (and also for dialog animations). In scripts fired through the dialog, OBJECT_SELF refers to OWNER. To explain how they are determined we also need to define oStarter and oOwner. They are defined by the script that fires the dialog: AssignCommand(oStarter, ActionStartConversation(oOwner, "some_dialog")); PLAYER always represents the first PC (GetFirstPC() in scripts). DEFAULT_LISTENER is generally oStarter. RULE 1: This is always true if oStarter is PLAYER. RULE 2: If oOwner is PLAYER, then DEFAULT_LISTENER is always PLAYER (green and purple). If oStarter is a party member, then control is given to PLAYER after the dialog (green). RULE 3: If oStarter is a party member and oOwner is a creature, then DEFAULT_LISTENER is PLAYER (red). In addition to that, before the dialog, PLAYER and oStarter exchange locations and control is given to PLAYER. After the dialog, control over the original party member is regained. RULE 4: If oStarter is not a party member and oOwner is a party member, then DEFAULT_LISTENER is oOwner, the party member (blue). OWNER is generally oOwner. RULE 1: If oOwner is PLAYER, then OWNER is oStarter (green and purple). RULE 2: If oOwner is a party member and oStarter is not a party member, OWNER is oStarter (blue). All of this is summarized in the following table: 1 Controlled character changes to PLAYER after dialog. 2 Controlled character changes to PLAYER before dialog, but changes back afterwards. Notes: STARTER in this table refers to DEFAULT_LISTENER. Shaded cells represent combinations where the roles of oStarter and oOwner may be reversed with the same effect. More attention should be paid to the white cells, especially a combination of a party member with another party member or creature. Bold font weight indicates that OWNER is oOwner or STARTER is oStarter, that is, no special rules have applied. A node in this text means every entry and every instance of the player choosing a reply. Every node has the following roles, which need to be determined: - SPEAKER - LISTENER In determining them, we need to make use of OWNER, DEFAULT_LISTENER and PLAYER (defined above). SPEAKER is the object with the tag in the Speaker field of the current entry. If the Speaker field is empty, SPEAKER is OWNER. If the field is not empty, but no object with that tag exists, the entry is skipped; if after that no other entries are available, the dialog ends. In replies, SPEAKER is automatically PLAYER. The keywords 'OWNER' and 'PLAYER' may NOT be used in the Speaker field. Doing this will end the conversation. LISTENER is the object with the tag in the Listener field of the current node. If the field is empty, it is the object with the tag in the Speaker field of the previous node. If that object is invalid or the same as SPEAKER, or if this is the first node, then LISTENER is DEFAULT_LISTENER. The keywords 'OWNER' and 'PLAYER' may be used in the Listener field. At the beginning of every node, SPEAKER and LISTENER reorient on each other, unless SetLockOrientationInDialog() is TRUE. In that case the creature for which it is TRUE does not reorient. There are two ways of reorienting in dialog. One is head-tracking, where the head is turned towards the target, and the body only turns as much as it needs to for the head to face the target. The creatures that do not use head-tracking instead turn entirely to face the target. For head-tracking to work, it must be enabled in appearance.2da under column 'headtrack'. The creatures that use head-tracking can turn it off by setting SetLockHeadFollowInDialog() to TRUE. However, if 'headtrack' is 0 in appearance.2da, then SetLockHeadFollowInDialog() cannot be used to enable head-tracking; these creatures will always turn entirely to face the target.

  5. Hey guys! Everything is shown in the video, but this is kind of a basic/advanced tutorial on how to edit dialog entries with the DLGeditor! https://youtu.be/u8tixbfgJ8g
