So my last few problems i managed to solve...

Well... all my party member randomly change their alignment. every time i load up to a different area int he game, they randomly go from lightside to dakrside, nuetral, back again, etc, etc.
Is there something that fixes this bug?
I find this very annoying when trying to equip really good alignment specific items to them and they turn to the other alignment and de-equip the items.

This happens in all my games, as i ahve tried starting new games and such. it always happens no matter what i do. i've also noticed that they are not effected when using the addlightside/adddarkside codes.

Is this for KOTOR 2? If so, does your character have a very high Charisma score? Some people who have had similar problems have claimed that having a very high charisma makes the alignments of your party members malfunction.

You should also be careful with the cheat codes since they might mess things up by causing various values to be out of sync. Whenever you get an alignment shift in the game a global variable gets updated as well with your current alignment. If you use the console commands I believe this variable will not be updated.

Sorry, but by cheating you risk, that the game stops working the way it is supposed to - it's not very stable, even if you don't cheat. So it seems likely, that you simply messed up by cheating to much... There are thousands of possibilities how uncontrolled changing of variables can mess up a game, so it will be really hard to find a clever answer except: Try again and try not to cheat so extremly. :-)
(And no, I don't care if someone cheats - every player should get the maximum fun out of his game, at least in a single player game - but extreme cheating makes it hard to solve problems in a general way...)

Bump your charisma down to reasonable levels (I wouldn't go higher than around 30 or so) and don't use the addlightside/adddarkside console cheats. Don't know if these changes will make a difference on a savegame that has already been messed with, but it might be worth a try.

Okay then.u've got regenrate force 12 regenerate force poitns on my guy altogether, and almost 6000 force poitns, so i guess a low charisma won't really even matter considering force points and the fact that all my skills, including treat injury- are at 99.
I'll give it a go on my next game after i complete this one.

As Irian stated above these numbers (99 in skills and 170 in stats) are not what are in normal player levels... you can not really expect the game to work properly with that level of tweaks. While KotOR I was far more forgiving in doing this type of really extreme 'cheating' because the stats and skills were not tied to additional functions in the game like they are in TSL, so in TSL you have to 'cheat' things a little more conservatively. ;)
