Huh? Could you be more specific on what exact mod and what you want to do?

ok .... well i have a mod called bastilla mod pack that also has the koto tank mod that Changes The Peragus Kolto Tank into a Vending machine for Items and other things made by Dak Vesser .. he also provided the source files so people can edit the mod so i want to edit it to change the items that can be taken from the koto tank so what i am asking is what tool or how can the source files be edited

You should be able to edit the source files with the Text Editor in Kotor Tool itself.

You can't just "load the mod" into KotOR Tool. There are individual aspects to a mod that you'd have to edit in order to get the desired results. The "source files" refer to the source script files (nss), though I'd assume you wouldn't actually need to edit the scripts in order to do what you're asking.

I'm no expert at Xbox modding - hell, at any modding period - and I don't really get what you mean. Do you want to turn Dak's mod into the Hak Pad???

no i want the hak pad but it was made for pc but works for xbox but the only way to get it is to use the cheat give item thing but the xbox dont have that so basicly i just need some way to recive the item but i cant use the save edit ... maybe some way to get it with a corps or something but i dont know how to do that
