Greetings everyone, This project is meant to attempt to port all content from Star Wars: KOTOR II TSL into Star Wars KOTOR 1 Mobile (for Android / IOS), resulting into a partially / fully playable mobile version of KOTOR II TSL for IOS / Android. The game will be installed and ran as a Total Conversion Mod over the mobile KOTOR 1 version. The mod development will consist in the following stages: - 1. Converting all files from the PC version of KOTOR II, to work with the older KOTOR 1 engine. - 2. Adapting these files to be installed as a mod (into the Override folder, etc.) for KOTOR 1 - 3. Downgrading / adapting features from KOTOR II that are inexisting in KOTOR 1 (like Crafting, Lightsaber Forms, Companion Training and Loyalty, etc.) - 3. Adapting and optimising the mod to work on IOS / Android KOTOR 1. - 4. Testing, Optimising, Polishing ---------- Different approaches (listed here as inspiration for other porting endevours): - Porting the Xoreos Engine or KotOR JS Engine to Android / IOS (for the developers of the Xoreos Engine / KotOR JS Engine) - Updating the KOTOR 1 Mobile older version of Odissey Engine to work with features from the newer KOTOR II TSL engine (for modders who experimented with the source code of the engines, etc.) ---------- The mod / port will be released here as it is being worked on, and updated as it is progressed on! This endevour will be completly open and collaborative, all work will be uploaded from the start and updated as it progresses! Everyone who believes they can contribute or help with this project in any way are invited to! ============================== STATUS: Project Completition: 5% Project Status: Phase 1 (KOTOR 1 to KOTOR 2 file conversions) Progress: Ported unmodified files from KOTOR II TSL PC version to KOTOR 1 IOS version. Filename adapted to work with IOS File System (all files were renamed in lowercase letters). Practical Result: Succeded in having partial KOTOR II TSL code execution and asset loading into KOTOR 1 IOS version. Specifically, the game crashes when launchimg a mew game, but loading a savegame works. Loading a savegame will display a black screen, however the background music plays, and the Inventory, Map and Quests screens can be accesed and they display the KOTOR II respective content. Accesing the Character screen crashes the game. I will upload a Youtube video showing the resulting functionality soon! To do next: Convert the modules, textures and animation files from KOTOR 2 format to the KOTOR 1 format and load them into the KOTOR 1 engine. ============================== UPDATE 1: So far I managed to port the K2 maps to K1 using @Thor110's brilliant tutorial "01 - [TUTORIAL] - Creating a Module for TSL using a KotOR Map!", found here: https://deadlystream.com/topic/6886-tutorial-kotor-modding-tutorial-series/ Now the maps can be warped to but there are no story elements, most NPC's are present but interaction with them does not work, most containers are empty, some still have the loot inside, area transition works for some arear but fails many times, especially when you want to enter the docked Ebon Hawk. Most levels load fine but some of them crash the game (especially the Peragus levels), and the mini-map does not display at all, strangely when the map section is accessed it always shows the Manaan Hrakert Rift Underwater Station map. The character animations also got "broken" after adding the ported files (that is why the characters look so "stiff" in the pictures)... So i could say i had very partial success so far! ============================== STATUS UPDATE: Project Completition: 20% Project Status: Phase 2 (KOTOR 1 to KOTOR 2 converted files adapting and optimising) Progress: Ported all KOTOR 2 maps to KOTOR 1 format using Thor110's tutorial. Loaded ported / converted maps into the mobile version of KOTOR 1. Practical Result: Got partial success, most levels work and have been ported fine, some content / features / characters like story elements and NPC interaction do not work, the minimap does not display at all and the map does not work on the ported levels (it always displays the Hrakert Rift Station level map), some area transitions (Return to the Ebon Hawk) do not work, the text above NPC's / area transitions / story objects in level does not display at all (the field is always blank). The character animations also got broken because of the added ported files. I copied the ported levels into the mobile version of KOTOR 1 (after renaming all filenames in lowercase characters) and managed to get the game to load the ported levels by making a savegame for each module, them transferring that savegame on the mobile version, and loading that save in KOTOR 1 mobile. I am using an iPad 3 to test the mod. To do next: Adapt and optimise the files causing the bugs / glitches / problems, like script files, restore all functionality (story elements, characters, scripts, etc.). This will be the hardest part (if possible at all)! ============================== Some pictures of the mod in action (notice the KOTOR 1 mobile HUD): Credit: Many thanks go @Thor110 for his brilliant tutorial "01 - [TUTORIAL] - Creating a Module for TSL using a KotOR Map!", found here: https://deadlystream.com/topic/688 Without this great tutorial I would have been unable to make any progress at all! He basically made it possible to port the levels from K1 to K2! ============================== UPDATE ALPHA (FIRST RELEASE): KOTOR II Mobile (K2M) first version – 0.4.0 Alpha released! Alpha 0.4.0 of the mod is live! We released earlier than expected! Head over to our ModDb page files section to download it now: https://www.moddb.com/mods/kotor-ii-mobile-k2m/downloads/k2-to-k1-port Unfortunately in this very early stage of development of the mod there is not much to do, than explore the maps, search for loot, etc. Also, you will most likely encounter lots of bugs and some game-breaking ones as well, this is still an Alpha release. Still, it’s a great achivement for us, enabling you to experience all game maps / levels in mobile! THIS RELEASE IS FREE TO MODIFY AND REDISTRIBUTE, RE-RELEASE ON OTHER HOSTING SITES OR TO INCLUDE IN YOUR MOD PROJECT! GIVING CREDIT IS NOT MANDATORY, BUT VERY APPRECIATED! We encourage all skilled modders out there to use our work as a foundation / framework for their project, or even try to complete the KOTOR II port to mobile before us and work out the bugs and problems! *Updates will be posted to this thread as they come! This post will also be updated as well.
