==========================================
Quest for tk102's birthday (February 4)
By Darth333 & al.

New Models by: svösh (hv88 blasters), Seprithro (blaster model), t7nowhere (saber models + birthday cake)


Download: http://www.pcgamemods.com/10110/ ...and a small patch in this post: http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?s=&postid=1748548#post1748548

============================================
WARNING: Do not warp from the Endar Spire. Get at least to Taris or this mod won't work as I re-used a global from the Endar Spire! warping from Taris to Tatoine is fine...just raise your stats ;)


This is a side quest in which you have to find some items required for the preparation of tk102's birthday. The quest spans over three planets and includes new areas and many hard ennemies (for cheaters or high lvl characters only!)

To begin the mission, go to the swoop registration office in Tatoine and listen carefully. (Do not warp to the new areas: you'll get stuck.)

Explore the various dialogue options as they can sometimes lead you to different solutions and items. But remember, if you disobey my orders, you better travel around well armed!
And if you speak badly of some people, expect to gain DS points! Some doors maybe locked, it's up to you to discover how to open them...

(Note: once you have unlocked the door in Dreshdae, to enter, look down, just in front of the door. The "lock" is placed a little low )

Some of the dialogues in this mod will make more sense if you are a regular member of Holowan labs. In any event, I suggest you play Doom_Dealer's Holowspire mod (available here: http://www.pcgamemods.com/5453) to fully understand the dialogue with Doom_Dealer.


Many members of LucasForums, mainly from Holowan labs, make at least cameo appreances in this mod:

tk102
svösh
T7nowhere
Prime
Boba Rhett (da boss man)
Doom_Dealer
Achilles (sorry Achilles but I couldn't give you Malak's appearance :D )
REdhawke
Tanesh
Fred Tetra
ChAiNz.2da
Xavier2
CDRSeadog
Darkkender
Mono_Gignato
FiEND_138 and his band
Seprithro
cchargin (try to find him - I was inspired by his avatar :p)

Unfortunately, tk102's birthday is on February 4th and due to this "deadline" I couldn't include more people although I wanted to.

You'll find svösh's blaster on Doom_Dealer, Seprithro and t7 carry their own items.


I would have like to make more balanced ennemies but due to time contraints it was impossible. If an interest is shown, i could turn this mod into a "more serious" smuggling mission.

=========================================
INSTALLATION/REMOVAL -
======================================

To install the mod:

Holy @*%#!!! This is so cool! Thank you! You are great friends to do this. :D :D

Edit: Finally played through the whole thing this afternoon. It's a very side quest Darth333 in its own right. You should be happy with the great work you did.

Thank you again! And to everybody else in Holowan, thank you for all your birthday wishes! I had a great day.

Woah, this is the coolest thing ever! :eek:



I can't believe I still haven't bought the PC version of Knights. :o I may go try and pick it up tomorrow and try this out!


Oh man, I almost forgot, Happy Birthday, tk102!


*hands tk102 a birthday gift basket and an elf*

The Elf's name is Skittles ad he enjoys holding his breath and befouling things. Enjoy! :rhett:

Hey tk, thanks to Darth333, she pointed out to me it was going to be your birthday. I didn't want to say anything because I knew this was coming, and I just wanted to see your reaction (this sure beats my avatar huh? ;) ) hehehe

:rock: :emodanc: Happy Birthday tk102!! :sbdance :cheers:

and Darth333 (and everyone involved), this looks fantastic, can't wait to play this!! I guess we all get to celebrate with tk :D

Does it have to be the 1st time to Tattooine for the mod to work?

Darth333
02-04-2005, 08:36 PM
No, you can go to tatoine at any time during the game to start this quest.



BTW, replace the module d3_party.mod by this file: (adds cchargin and corrects the dlg with ChAiNz.2da and the cake.).

Ok I finally got to play it, and I'm glad you finally found a way to use that area. That Pazaak player still cracks me up. :) A strange thing happend on my way to the party though.

For a split second Bastila appeared and was surrounded in a red cloud and she said something like "what, whats going on" then it cut to the landing scene.

It seemed abrupt though and I thought maybe it had something to do with the fact that Bastila was no longer part of my group.

Also an odd bug occured when I went to the czerka office. I had Mission in my party abd the little rodian would only talk about griff and nothing else. as soon as I sent her back to the hawk everything was fine.

I know you said this a Joke Mod, but you still did a great job. :)

Ah! Crap! :mad: That was supposed to be a cutscene. I donèt know what happened: when I tested it it was ok but I just noticed that Carth disappeared when I removed the sound for his dialogue :(

in short, he says the Ebon Hawk is on fire because of the candles! Good thing you purchased insurance :D

I'm sorry about bringing this old thread to the front again, but I've just downloaded the mod, and I cant seem to get the pazaak player to work properly. When I say I want to play for his authorization, It just ends the dialog. After I play him (or her, I can't really tell) once, whenever I try to talk again, it just ends the dialog. :confused:

Are you talking about Achilles? I tested it and it works for me :confused:

The dialogue is actually pretty simple:
NPC: Hello there!
Player: (blank)
NPC: Are you ready for a game of Pazaak?
Player:
-> Sure, let's play! ->starts pazaak
-> No thanks -> exits dialogue.

Note that this mod was made for a specific occasion and I had very little time to release it and couldn't polish it as much as I would have wanted to.

Oh, also I read the link on editing global.jrl, but I don't really understand how to make the mod compatible with RedHawke's ord mandell mod. Does the self-unzipping .exe file automatically overwrite your version? Sorry, I am a complete and utter noob. :)

If you want an easy solution, What you can do is rename Redhawke's file to keep it in your override folder and install this one. Once you are done with my mod, delete the file (or rename it to something else) and put back Redhawke's. (note: don't do this with other .2da files such as spells.2da or appearance.2da unless you have a specific reason for doing so: the mods will stop working)

That's odd, because it didn't do that.

What if I want to keep the birthday mod?

Thanks for the help, I hope I find out what's wrong with the pazaak "guy".

Then you will have to "merge" the two global.jrl files from my mod(s) and Darth333's birthday mod with a GFF Editor. :D

I coulnd't check the pazaak player thing yesterday. I'll be able to do it tonight.

05-04-2005, 01:45 PM
Thanks, I think I understand, I just copy and paste the bit about your quest into RedHawke's global.jrl file, rename it, and then I'm done, right?

If you already had been in the module with the edited characters/diaglogue/whatever it won't work because its been pre-loaded.

Try a savegame before then and see if that helps ;)

No, it will work even if the area has been loaded before as it is fired with a script when you enter the area.

In order to fire the script, you must have done the Endar Spire and not warp to Tatoine from the beginning of the game as the script reuses a global from there (I didn't wanted to edit globalcat.2da in order not to create compatibility issues). You can warp to Tatoine from Taris however or set the Global variable End_TraskTalk to 1 with KSE.

Someone should greet you on Tatoine when you enter the Swoop racing area.

try reinstalling and make sure there are no subfolders inside your override folder.

Note that this is a joke mod so don't take anything seriously ;)

hey great thanks alot. i know there is the Taris Upper City Emporium where we can download mods and other things, but alot of the mods r linked to pcgamemods.com and is unaccessible at this time. maybe we should make a new forum. just a thought

How about we just upload/update links as we need them rather than re-create the wheel? :xp: hehehe...

Many of he modders have gone back to update their download links, so occasionally we'll find one we need to update (like this one)...

However, if you're having problems finding other mods, and after you've exhausted your means to find it.. make a request in this thread:

Three bugs

1) With RedHawke's Ord Mandel, the console leading the the apartments (Ord) and the Czerka (Korriban) are in the same spot, so the computer confuses both.

2) If you have not completed the quest before hitting Leviathan, it tends to go from the Bastila and Carth cutscene to everyone gathered in the Hawk's center room, and won't let you go any further.

3) If you leave the birthday party by the Central Beach exit, it warps you to Rataka Prime

Of course, I downloaded version 1.0. Do subsequent versions correct this?

Seems the reason why modders shouldn't rely only onto one host for theirs mods as been cleared one more time with a lot of mods either lost or hard to reach trough specific hunt ;)
