I opened up the 2da editor, attempting to edit the 2da file (for K2), but it gives an error message saying:

"Unhandled exception has occured in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will close immediately.

Index was outside the bounds of the array."

Now, I've clicked "continue" before, but it never opens the file. What am I doing wrong?

Is this the standard appearance.2da file inside 2DA.bif, or one that belongs to a mod in the override folder?

If it's the latter check that the file is in 2DA V2.b format and not the plain text 2DA V2.0 format. KotorTool's 2DA editor can only handle the binary 2.b format, not the old deprecated 2.0 text format.

(You can check this by opening the file with notepad and see what the first 8 characters in the file says.)
