Recruitable Dustil mod (version 0.7) - Update April 10, 2004 4 (minor changes to the mod - added XP when Dustil is recruited and new journal entries - some changes to the code to preprare the LS version of the mod)

New mod for Dark Side players. Reclaim your identity and plot with Uthar and Dustil to overthrow the Republic!
Not really a side quest but it works more or less like one (third way to solve Dutil's quest). I added a few new sound files - no new voice acting - it's just cut and paste of existing files but it's better than nothing.

New journal entries.

Read instructions carefully: not everything goes into your Override folder.

http://www.pcgamemods.com/5292/ (2.7MB - it's because of the sound files)

Will try to add a sidequest once Dustil is recruited and new dialogues with Carth but I need ideas. Anyone?

Pls do not hesitate to tell me if you see spelling, grammar or other similar mistakes - English is not my mother tongue.

Any comments and suggestions for additions\modifications are welcomed.

Enjoy!

No, you can't kill Carth yet. This part is not done already (Unknown World). I just stayed on Korriban.

Uthar does not ask you to do anything: he bows to you. It's more like a third option to solve Dustil's side quest.

I have another question: does anyone knows how lipsync works?

When I add new sound files that are not linked to the tlk table I loose all lipsync.

The games lipsynch is awful anyway. Im guessing I have to start a new game here, always wanted to pick the guy with the short hair and the scar that doesnt look like a horse or a gay porn star (baldy with goatee) so will give it a shot.

Yeah well, there's a difference between awful and not at all (read: telepathy).

I've been thinking about the Cath thing: I think there should be two options: one where you kill him and one where he joins you and turns DS. You guys already have Bastila (and a kiss) but I would like to have Carth. OK, I grant you that he is always complaining but he already demonstrates DS tendencies.

I never thought I would want to recruite Dustil, But it sounds cool.

BTW, how can I place Dustil's portrait in the party selection table?

I took a look at the files in your mod and you did what you needed to get a portriate to show but you didn't include a portrait :P Take a screen shot of Him in game make the portriate a square(I recomend 256x256) and name it po_dustil.tga. :)

At first, that's what I did but I didn't work either so I removed the file from the package. I took a screenshot, then paste it to paint (I know, that sucks but its the only application I have to to this) and then to the Avanced Image Viewer and Converter to convert it into tga but still nothing.

*edit: problem solved sometime in April.

hmm. it should work. I think thats all gameunlimited did with his yuthera mod.

And I figured out why the VO won't lipsynce. IT is so completely obvious I can't believe I didn't think of it sooner. The is a folder in KotOR's main called Lips and in that folder is a file for each module. This little file is what makes the lips move.

You can use an erf editor to open and extract the files. I don't know if new files can be made for new VO I don't even know how these files work, But they are what is needed to make the lips synce to the VO.

I'll do the LS version this week, it will be much easier to do since the dialogues are already there.

Dustil is a jedi guardian.

Thanks, I'll look at the lipsync thing when I get home. If you find how it works in the meantime, pls tell me.

OK, I couldn't find out about how the lipsync files work so unless someone does I'll stick with ventriloquism.

*edit* I found out about the lipsync but it's too time consuming and i don't have the patience to do it.

ok, so im a lil confused how to get him. In the readme says that youve gota say 'both of you calm down' then you have to complete the quest, then after the leviathon part do the final temple bit and tell uthar ure identity and he tells you to take dustil with you.
What i dont understand is how to complete the quest, you obviosuly dont take the DS by killing him or the LS by turning him back to light, but what other way is there, help

Darth333

The mod creates a completely different way to solve the Dustil quest. Here's how to do it:

1. To trigger the quest you have to go to the academy after the Leviathan (you have to know who you are).

2. when you get into the academy, go meet Dustil with Carth in your party, just as you normally do. An argument will begin between Carth and Dustil. At one point you will have the option to say something: chose the new option I added which is "Both of you, calm down"

3. Dustil and Carth will argue a little more, you will say a couple of things and Dustil should say that he has things to do and he should run away when the conversation ends.

4. Do the Korriban quest as you do normally. Just make sure you tell Uthar about Yuthura's plans and give the pad Uhtar gives you to Adrenas to poison her.

5. DON'T tell Yuthura about Uthar's plans. If you cross Uthar, then you will not be able to complete Dustil's quest.

6. After recovering the Star map in Naga Sadow's tomb, side with Uthar against Yuthura. Once Yuthura is death, if you reveal you true identity to Uthar or tell him that if he was not blind he would already know who you are, you will have the possibility to recruit Dustil:
- follow the conversation until you see as an option"wait, Uthar, there is something I have to ask you". Chose this option and this is where he will let you take Dustil with you. The Script to recruit Dustil is attached to this part of the conversation. You will get DS points for recruiting Dustil given your motives to recruit him. You can't turn Uthar to the LS. When you return to your ship, Dustil will be there.

I did this DS quest because I was tired to threaten people for a few credits. I think a Dark Lord of the Sith should not even bother for such petty crimes.

Doing this mod required hours of work so I wasn't going to make it that easy for you to have Dustil in your party:D

Fantastic! :D

I'm trying out your mod and I'm loving it. Have Carth and Dustil in my party. Its Onasiriffic. :p

Anyways a couple of things I'm not sure if you are aware of:

1. Dustil uses all of T3's lines. So when he's in my party he'll "beep" in certain conversations. Like with Tanis, he beep-spit at Tanis and the Czerka guy on Korriban wanted to buy him. LOL.

2. His picture in the stats page (where the light meter is) is aligned so I only see the top half.

Will Dustil still be a DS Jedi in the LS add-on or will he be a LS Jedi Guardian?

Thanks for the feedback.

i know. When you get to certain parts of the game, there are some scripts that check which npc is present and depending on who is present, some dialogs will fire. It's due to the fact that Dustil replaces T3. Once the LS version is completed, i'll work on new dialogues but I don't know if I'll have the patience to go through all the files where T3 says something. I want to give the player the option to chose between LS and DS versions of the mod in an all-in-one version. I would also like to add a sidequest but I have a lot to do before I get there (i don't make any promises concerning the side quest).

2. His picture in the stats page (where the light meter is) is aligned so I only see the top half.
Unfortunately you'll have to live with this unless someone tells me how to correct this. You can re-download the mod if you want It has been updated a couple of days ago. You will now get new journal entries and XP for recruiting Dustil.

Will Dustil still be a DS Jedi in the LS add-on or will he be a LS Jedi Guardian?

He will be LS. By default Dustil was a neutral NPC, like all the nonplayable npcs inthe game. I changed that and made him DS. It's in the UTC file.

About the LS version, I'm not sure it will come out this week. I've struggling with some scripts yesterday and messed up with the mod. If the mod is not ready on wednesday, then it will go to the end of next week (just the LS - not the sidequest) since I'll be gone to the Unknown World for a week.

Ok, I wasn't sure if you knew that or not. I found it to be quite humorous. I certainly don't blame you for not wanting to go through all those files. :)

I'm in no hurry, take your time. ;)

I also liked the conversation you have with Uthar.
I found some grammatical errors in it. I could change the errors and send the .dlg file back to you, if you'd like.

OK, I don't know if it comes too late after 2 months, but you can simply fix the problem with the picture in the stats page. Only change the Tag name from t3m4 into another one. :) I played around with the mod where you can recruit Mekel (my only save from Korriban) and changed the tag in his .utc file simply into "Mekel". I recognised this because he replaced in the original mod HK47 and you could see his picture full-size. :)
And the Picture in the party selection table is also very easy.
I had the normal portrait from the mod. It was named po_mekel.tga. And I found out that the name for the picture which should appear in the selection table is with only the number 3 at the end. So you have to name it po_mekel3.tga. :) And I think the one with the 2 would be the place of the table when the npc is not available -> the shadow.
Uh ... hope you understand what I mean. My grammar ... :(

If not, I could post some screenshots later, the server of my homepage is down at the moment.

Hey! Awesome job on this, I think it's an awesome mod. However, being a sissy and do-gooder I shall wait for the LS version. Heh, I get about halfway through on DS before feeling too evil and just giving up.

Anywho, good work on this. Sounds like a blast! I've always wanted to be able to bring Dustil along - since there's a mod out for practically anyone else - and hope to see the LS version A.S.A.P. :D

Oh, and w00t, my first post. *performs happy dance* :elephant:

Tanesh, if I replace HK-47 I'll get the picture full size but not for t3m4. I don't want to replace HK. Plus I want to keep party members tag to make sure the game recognizes the object as so for plot advancement. Otherwise some events may not fire and it may cause bugs in the game.

About the portrait, it's fixed since a long time ago. If you doN,t have it in your version, just redownload the mod at pcgamemods or at my website (click on my sig). Perhaps if you don't have it, it's because you downloaded the mod from Uru's site. I PMd Uru 2 months ago but he no longer updates his site :( (i did not included the picture at that time because of a format problem). The new version that came out mid April, contains new journal entries.

The name of the picture for the party selection talbe doesn't matter. It could be anything such as "blahblah.tga" and it would work as long as the portrait name in the portraits.2da file correspond to the name of the picture and as long as the PortraitID field in the .utc file points to the proper row of the portratis.2da file.

Perhaps i'll complete the LS version this summer if I have time.

Replace HK-47 is the worst thing to do, since there are really "No-use" ones like mission,canderious and t3.

Ah, ok, I have to redo the game again because I've already saved Dustil in my save, so I couldn't even recognise a probably missing picture, was to busy experimenting with the only NPC I could still recruit. But I think it's your newest dustil mod. Have to play again and try it out. ;)
And of course, who can even WANT to replace HK?? I'm considering which one to replace for the others except of T3 ... And that with the tags and bugs I don't know. I just played the rest of Korriban and arrived at the Unknown World. Well, I'll see soon.
But if you would replace Juhani with Dustil, wouldn't he join Jolee in the temple and get hostile if you'd choose the dark side? :confused: Questions over questions ... I fear it's too complicated for a modding-noob like me. :rolleyes:
