Here is a movie that you can substitute for the one that plays at the start of a new game:

Preview:
http://oldhickorystix.com/k1mods/01a.wmv

Download (45 mb):
http://oldhickorystix.com/k1mods/01a.bik

Installation:
1) Before installing the .bik file, open your ......swkotor/movies directory and :saberr:rename 01a.bik to old01a.bik or something similar.:saberr:

2) Place the 01a.bik that you downloaded into the ......swkotor/movies directory.

Thanks to rgdelta for telling me how to get the software to do this.

By the way, does anyone know why the .bik files are so large in comparison to .wmv files?

That's really good! It can go without the gold text scrolls though...
Other than that... very good.
:D

I like it. Not something I would normally download, but it looks good.

Also I think it would be smart too add that people should first make a back-up of their movies directory otherwise there is a change they will blame you for destroying their game/computer.

Here are the fonts used in the actual movies and the better video games title crawls:

Fonts:

The Episode Number
Typeface: Franklin Gothic Demi (Bold)
Width should be condensed to 80%

The Episode Title:
Typeface: Franklin Gothic Medium Condensed (Bold)
Width should be condensed to 95% and is all caps
Alternatively try Alpin Gothic No:1 available for purchase here
Alternatively download a free font 'SWCrawlTitle' here

The Main Body of Text:
Typeface: Franklin Gothic Demi (Bold)
News Gothic T (demi) which is available for purchase here
The type is force justified, and the last line ranging left.
Alternatively download a free font 'SWCrawlBody' here
Camera focal length: 24mm

Very good intro, but I would change fonts to those given by Sith Holocron and made the text as a one part (not: text --> part of video --> text again --> rest of the video).

Thanks (to all) for the feedback! When I'm done with my Dathomir mod, I'll see if I can fix the text scroll and make an alternate version without a text scroll.

This clip has an alternate text presentation. Obviously, I still need to work out some details, such as Red vs Yellow, but I like this effect better than the scrolling text.
