I'm trying to use the Revan's Redemption robes mod, but I can't seem to find that blasted file to add the couple lines it requires to make it work. I have KotOR Tool, and I have the .Net Framework, I just can't figure out where it is.....could someone help a newbie out please? :D

<edit> I tried to follow the instructions from Darth333 up at the top in the 'Stuck' thread, and that didn't help either. Can someone explain what to do in step-by-step terms in simple words so the st00pid newbie (me) can understand? ;) </edit>

Well, first, I think the mod comes with an appearance.2da file. If not, then you can look in KT under BIFs-2da-Appearance.2da (I believe that's right.) Then just follow the readme.

Alright, it looks like you were right, I misunderstood the instructions. Would anyone care to tell me how to 'paste' a row with the 2da editor in KotOR tool? It says that I'm supposed to do that in the instructions, but I can't seem to figure out how to for the life of me. :confused:

Right-click in the leftmost column and select Copy Row then go to the other file and right-click in the leftmost column again and select Insert Copied Row.

...or you could just highlight it all, hit ctrl+c, then make a new row and hit ctrl+v

I was assuming (don't know why now) that you were trying to copy an entry from one modified Appearance.2da into another modified Appearance.2da.

That's okay, I figured out how to do it anyway. :D But oddly enough, despite what it says in the Readme, the lines that it said to add are already there at the bottom. Perhaps he needs to update the readme? :confused: Does anyone who's used this mod know if there's supposed to be some dialog changes....it says there are with Vandar....but I can't seem to find any. :confused:

<edit>Arrg, nevermind, I just figured it out, it's Zhar, not Vandar. :p

Yes, there was an included appearance.2da file with the mod but some people already have mods that use this file so in order to avoid conflicts, the author, svösh, added a tutorial on how to edit your own .2da file so you can customize it as you wish.

Actually keep going there is more :D


this is copied straight from my readme


But why cheat? When I have recruited the best master scripter to help me Darth333!
just talk to Master Zhar about Revan and Malak during your trials.

And the second one’s a surprise.
