She appears in your party after you leave on the Ebon Hawk, so don't worry, you haven't done anything wrong.

I don't think she is there. Do you have to talk to her on the ship or something, because I am on Dxun and she doesn't appear on the party selection menu. On the secret academy, do you need to say anything specific to her, or do anything, or does she just go there as long as you are male? Thank you. Please help! thanks

If your character is male, I have no idea what could have gone wrong. If your character is female, you don't get the handmaiden.

Did you used the warp cheat code sometime during your game?

No warp cheat or anything. The only thing I did that way abnormal was:

I started the game as a female character, and then using the KOTOR Savegame Editor, I changed the gender to male. So right now, they look female but the gender is actually male.

At what point did you change your character's gender? If it was after the Telos Academy, you can't get the handmaiden, but you also can't get the disciple, so in a way, you are slightly kriffed.

The "sex change" could be the problem. I can't check that right now, but there's probably a global you need to change as well.

I believe it was as soon as I got shot down by an HK 50 and then I defeated the three of them. Then I did the gender change before I entered the academy.

The best way to fix this is to simply start a new character, who stays male throughout. Sorry I couldn't be any more help, though.

This is what messed up your game, there is a global number that also indicates your gender, some of the gender checks use that one instead of the main gender flag... so to the game you are still Female.

If you still have that pre-academy save you need to re-open it up in KSE and browse the global numbers there should be an obvious one for gender... ;)

That global variable (is something like this:

000_player_gender = #

The options are a 1|0 value and right now it is set as 0.
I am not sure, but maybe I'll set it to 1 and see what happens...

That complicates things, considering 0 is male, and 1 is female. I wonder what 2 would be then.

I did it, I set it to 1 (male) and it worked. Thanks guys.

That makes no sense, unless portraits and that other thing you edited use different references.

Your right, it doesn't make sense, but... it may be just some kind of reference in KSE alone.

It makes perfect sense as OE needed a global number for gender for some reason as they were making the game so they added one. It very well could be that it was for a bug of some sort.

Reasonable explanation.

I figured out that setting the global boolean to a 0 means that other characters will have you as a female, it is coded into the globals. 1 means that you are globally male.

The other thing, however doesn't have anything to do with that. It just controls what kind of clothes you can wear.

There is no 2, just 1 and 0
