Finally I can Mod!!!
I got 3 mods I'm workin on.

A new quarterstaff called Lord Shi'don's Quarterstaff.

A new mod that turns the South apartment Ring into a dangerous place...
oooo spooky!
Malak already knows you are on Taris so he sends an old Sith Lord named Lord Shi'don on a mission to anihilate you.

And finally Lord Shi'don's Robes.

When I get pics Ill post em here.

To be able to take screenshots (much less without the GUI) This is what you're going to need to do:


Open your "swkotor.ini" file located in the game's root (main) directory. You can use notepad or similiar word processing program

In this file, look for this heading

[Game Options]

Under this header, make sure you have these entries with these settings: (you may have to add or edit entries)

GUIsInScreenShot=0
EnableScreenShot=1


Save your file. (make sure it has the ".ini" extension, not ".txt"


Start your game. Play to a point where you want to take a screenshot, then press the "Print Screen" button. My game will usually shutter for a quick second to let me know it took a screenshot. ** note: the Print Screen key is sometimes abbreviated on keyboards, but should still be recognizable. Look to your top right area of the keyboard. This is of course on an U.S. keyboard layout.

Your pics will be located in the game's root (main) directory with a ".tga" extension. Usually in a sequential naming order. (They WON'T have the GUI in them with the settings you added to the ".ini" file :) )

In order to get the "dramatic" shots, the Spacebar is your friend ;) You can pause a scene at any moment and rotate the camera to get cerain angles. You can even take screenshots while the game is paused.

Hope this helps!

How about Lord Venom or something evil ;) sounding : [You can use this if you want I just want royalties :p ] Just kidding anyways the “So called root” is your SWKotOR typically under Program files ect… Lucas arts blah, blah I can’t tell you. Because I keep it simple mine is C:\Games\SWKotOR anyways open your swkotor.ini and follow ChAiNz very helpful instructions.

EnableScreenShot=1

Darth Cloussen? Someone's been playing too much Freelancer :D

By the way, it's Claussen :rolleyes:

Anyway, I think this sounds like a fun mod to play. It's nice to see more and more ppl getting into scripting.

Eagerly awaiting release :)

Make it a really cute Sith lord named Darth 333.... lol

should make it like malak's son and use a modded version of Malek_jedi (malek was going to be used first and that model would have been used, but they changed it to Malak and made that model unusable by replacing him with a cinimatic :()

if your Revan is female, could make it Revan and Malak's Kid... of course you could do that with the male.... but um.................

anyway!

Taris DOES need a little more interesting action, its got to the point wherei cheer when they blow it up lol. plus if your feeling mod happy, could do a little redecoration to the city :)

The thing is when I try to upload my file to pcgamemods everything goes fine until...A BIG MONSTER JUMPS OUT OF NOWHERE!!! LOL! Just kidding anyways when I get to the part in which you pick what game your file goes under it goes to a page that says file not found (I am a member.)

Make sure there aren't any 'special' characters in your zip or rar filename (commas, apostrophes, quotations, etc.). I've had the same problem before ;) Simplify the name and it should work...

Looking forward to the Mod so I hope this helps! :D

@ Chains & MattColejk

You two needn't be so hard on yourselves. IMHO you've both taken the most important step and that's you are trying to mod. :thumbsup:

It's rather disheartening when you see a post "I don't want to try to mod, it looks too hard..." etc. etc. You've both gotten over that hurdle and dived right in...

hehe I remember the first time I opened Fred's Kotor Tool and expanded the BIF tree.... :eek: I kept thinking to myself "Dear godz what have I gotten myself into..." (as well as some others I'm sure)
im only REALLY good at Custom items, MINOR Re-textures, and a TINY TINY TINY bit of Convo CHANGES, my modding knowlegde, is very limited, compared to others but im happy with wat little i can do
I hear ya' man. Same here... but it's always fun to 'drill' the others and soak up all the knowledge they've learned so far... ;)

I'm still eternally grateful for all the wonderful help I've received here at Holowan.... and I'm sure that tk102, T7, Darth333, RedHawke, Achilles and svösh are 'grateful' I've stopped drilling them for the time being (don't hold your breath guys/gals...TSL is coming soon enough hehehe)

You're never too young (or old....ahem) to become a modder... I mean c'mon...if *I* can do it...well, 'nuff said ;)

You two should be proud to call yourselves modders, afterall we all have the same goal...
take a great game and make it better

and I'm going to feel really awkward if no one remembers that commercial ;) hehe

@MattColejk
Out of curiosity Matt, have you tried installing KotOR and then immediately un-installing it again (using KotOR's un-install feature) so that it might clear some hidden registry values? I know it sounds a bit re-dundant...but it just might do the trick.

PM me with the results so that Chains' WIP doesn't stray off-topic...
