STR 18169:

your Selkath -> you Selkath (although the VO erroneously says "your")

I think he means it as "you and your kin"

Not sure if you already have it, but I just noticed this while looking for a locked door barkstring:

<string id="20037" sound="nm26acdoor28004_" soundlength="0.000000">[This door has been permenantly sealed.]</string>
<string id="20342" sound="nm27aadoor01000_" soundlength="0.000000">[This door has been permanently sealed.]</string>

20037 is spelled incorrectly.

Found a few more issues that aren't mentioned in your latest release:

11699: ". Chuundar!" should be ", Chuundar!"

12759: "here" should be "Here"

17657: "... The Sith Empire" should be "... the Sith Empire".

31030: "Come speak to me and when..." should be "Come speak to me when..."

38638: "anymore" should be "any more" (2x)

38640: "anymore" should be "any more"

43648: "... as well the ship itself" should be "... as well as the ship itself"

44695: jeporadize

45152: soceity

45266: "inter-galactic" should be "intergalactic"

 

EDIT: I forgot a few...

1716: "Now you're teasing me." should be "You're teasing me."

2417: "... with the Republic with the Sith, ..." should be "... with the Republic, with the Sith, ..."

3641: "It wasn't what a would call..." should be "It wasn't what I would call..."

4192: "i" should obviously be capitalized (that entire line is an abortion of grammar, really)

Anyone still following this? How would I go about releasing as V 1.0? I have a finished version now.

Can't you just upload it to the file section?

11699: I disagree, this is Zaalbar talking to you and then shouting to Chuundar
17657: debatable but I agree

1716, 2417: These are weird lines. I'd like look the VO's for these up later today

The rest I have processed, thanks for the finds

Stumbled on this one by chance while looking for conditional scripts:

"But I think you just might be crazy enought that you don't care. Okay, I don't need no trouble, so here's the scoop."

StrRef 17356.

Was in the latest release

@Liquorice,

check the first post: there are links to several versions. The latest upload was 1.11.

Gimmick5000 has done an excellent job with this. A valid alternative is KnifeMaster's own take that you can find here.

I have probably an ever more polished variant but it is custom tailored to a modification of mine that won't unfortunately be released.

Where can I get the latest version of this?

Check page 1 of this post for the latest version. Still not finished though.

I'm sure you know how to use this. It is just a dialog.tlk replacement, meant for an unmodded KOTOR installation. You can mod afterwards.

I understand if you don't want to release your more polished variant, which you said is custom-tailored to a modification of yours, but I am curious about what changes you made. As soon as I receive a release with most of the typos and misspellings corrected, I will probably go further myself because I also noticed there are many instances of missing commas when it comes to introductory words and clauses. There are also a lot of ellipses I would rather see replaced with commas. The last thing I'd like to see changed for myself is consistent spelling variants for any given country/region. Since I am American, I have changed all the non-American spelling variants to the American variants. It would also be interesting to have the dialog checked with professional-grade software like Grammarly Pro. I've double-checked a lot of dialog/text instances with Grammarly Pro. They have many good suggestions and let you know proper punctuation with periods, commas, and semicolons.

Not sure if you got this one or not (I didn't turn up anything in a search):

40047 - "Take an old man's advice, Yuthura. I know the Jedi aren't as perfect as they think they are, but they're way is a lot better than the way of the Sith."

Should be their.

There are a few more errors in the stock .tlk I've found, so I thought I'd share them. You probably know about these, Gimmick, but this is more for people who are looking for a comprehensive list of typos/subtitle mismatches in the base game. Perhaps this should have its own thread...

10056: "we'll have to find" should be "we have to find"

14920: "hear" should be "heard"

20851: "Hm... that may explain" should be "Hm... that might explain"

40071: double space

44016: "ice breaker" should be "ICE breaker"

There are 2 occurrences of "aft holding cells" - not sure if this is a mistake or if I'm just missing something?

EDIT - more

12447: semicolon should probably be a colon

21506: should be "stumbled into"

Unfortunately I haven't been able to get DLG_edit to work under Windows 10. Tried all the compatibilty settings. Been wrestling with this a few times the past months (or years, I guess). Can't finish this without that tool 😢
10056 fixed in next version
14920 fixed in next version
20851 fixed in next version
20851 had that
44016 fixed in next version

The aft is the rear part (stern) of the ship, so the cells are probably in the rear of the ship

Guess I'll pick this project up again...
