Hi guys.

Ive just downloaded Stoffe's Handmaiden choice mod - its very nice that you can choose Brianna/Handmaiden instead of Mical/Disciple...
How would I change the mod/game to be able to pick Mical as male as well?

I presume it would entail a script and/or dialogue change?

I know its not right to double post but its been a couple of days now since I asked...

No one any ideas?

ganoesparan06, you are right it isn't right to double post, but this is also a 'bump' and they are not allowed. This is a forum not IM so you will have to wait for answers, and sometimes you may not get any at all, sorry. Forum Rules (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=169078). -RH

Hmm, A script I imagine. But you would have to replace the Handmaiden with Mical. Sorry I can't give you anymore advice, I suck with scripts.

depending on who you want to change out my option would probably be baodur since you cant wear jedi robes and no one has been able to help me on those requests , but you might want to open the mod that allows you to choose brianna instead of disciple and see how that person did you should be able to follow what they did and switch it out with the person you want to switch them out for.

It mostly has to do with scripting. You have to edit the dialog where the Disciple and Handmaidens join to give the player the option to either refuse or accept them joining the group. I suppose the easiest way of doing this would be to modify the Handmaiden's dialog with an option to allow her to come or not, since you encounter her first. Then you'd have to change the conditional scripts in the Disciple's dialog to check if the Handmaiden had joined rather than the gender of the player.

The tricky bit with this sort of mod is then that you need to keep track of all the situations where either Handmaiden or Disciple is present and modify the scripts associated with those dialogs, cutscenes or quests so that the game checks which character has joined instead of the player's gender. This can be quite a bit of detective work to locate all those situations.

Some of those scripts and dialogs have been modified for the Handmaiden mod. Its readme file has quite detailed information about what files has been changed, and it could be a starting point at least. :)

Eek...

I didnt realise it would be quite so involved...

This would be something I could do with KOTOR Tool rite?
