I'm currently planning on making edits on the characters heads (like new hair colors,etc.), however I can't find the .tga files. Any help would be apreciated.

using kotor tool open erf>texture packs> then open swpc_tex_tpa.erf and go down to the P category and open that and double click on one of the files to open the KT image viewer and then just scroll down until u see them the female heads range from : PFHA01 through PFHC05d3 and the male ones are the same except for were their is an F there is an M

i've began doing the same thing and i have a female that has Darth Maul's eyes and a red ponytail (it is the 3rd white female head) and when its in the last stage of the darkside it has black hair, lips and her eyes that i found here:
called the Dark Angel lenses pretty sweet
i'll post screenshots if would like

Thanks very much, I had made some alterations to bastila from a file i found on the net, but it would be dificlut to find all of them.


P.S. - Post screenshots? You don't even have to ask, post them!!

thanx its not my first atempt at reskinning the heads but the other one i did i just changed the eye color of the 2nd white female head from that (imo) ugly grayish color to something alittle more vibrant i actually changed it a few times untill i finally said thats the color i want

I've made an crapy (lol) attempt to edit bastila's face , but i'd like to show to you my talent (or the lack of it).

What is the key for screenshots?

04-04-2004, 02:31 PM
u have to go into the swkotor.ini file and go down to game options and change the 0 to a 1 for the enablescreenshots

if any of that made sense save the file and then hit the Print Screen button and it saves a tga file into ur main skotor directory then u just open that up and save as a jpeg

Lol, the .ini file I already knew about it. What I didn't knew was the print screen button. Thanks Again!!

P.S.- Well, could you host the 2 pics ? Just for a while...

04-04-2004, 07:15 PM

They are on their way! Thanks!

ok darth straker here they are


nice work on the retexures btw
do u think u could take the 2nd white female head and make it have blonde hair and the third white female head and make it a redhead not a bright red but more like a subtle red noticeable but not too much and i'll worry about the eye color myself since i've gotten pretty good at that? i'd appreciate it i just can't get it too work the way i want

Sure, I think I can handle it.
Btw if someone wants that crazy looking bastila , just tell me.

04-05-2004, 10:42 AM
ya know what why don't u go ahead and send it cuz i just something i'd like to have it for to see what it looks like i recolored her clothes and they look cool on her with blonde hair but i think this one would be better

Just to be 200% sure : those two are the ones with ponytails right?

04-05-2004, 08:42 PM
yea thats them the one with a normal ponytail is the 3rd whit female head and the one with a braided ponytail is the 2nd white female

I already sent some pics to your e-mail, see if they are like you asked.

04-05-2004, 10:50 PM
that is exactly what i wanted thanx oh do u think u could also reverse which is blonde and which is red aswell because ya never know when u might want to change the hair color of the same character if u don't mind doing so then just go ahead and send all for in the same zip just rename them thanx again

Darth Straker
04-05-2004, 10:56 PM
Sure, but let me see if I understood well: you want those two pairs of each right?
I mean blonde/red for both of them .

04-05-2004, 11:16 PM
yea if its not any trouble i just plain suck at recoloring hair and things when i do it it takes all the detailing out

04-05-2004, 11:18 PM

Btw, the hair gets darker as you get more closer to full dark side.

04-05-2004, 11:23 PM
ok thats fine i kinda figured that anyway here are the screenshots of them

If you could make the last 2 heads as unzippable downloads to the override folder on uru's site, ( the mod mainframe site), at least one non modder (me) would use it. The kind of download where you unzip to override and the character is in the game for you when you go to the character select screen. I would particularly like to see Redgirl in the previous post as a blond.

I cringe to ask something like this because I don't know how much work is involved, so by all means just forget I mentioned it if it is something you don't feel like doing.

its really easy actually all u need is KotOR Tool in this thread:


then u'll need to have a imageing program installed on ur computer something like photshop or paint shop pro is what most of us use then ur on ur way
