One:Editing the "usm_sbrcrstl_117.uti": You need the Kotor Tool to edit the uti, which can be found here, under 'General Modding tools': http://www.starwarsknights.com/tools.php

Two:Blade Color: All the "C-style" or "Count Dooku" sabers use the blade textures that come with the vanilla version of the game. So you could either change edit the game's green blade texture, or simply extract the game's silver blade tex, and rename it to "lsabregren01.tga".

Three: This would take a heavy edit of the model, as it likely isn't as easy as opening up a modeling program and connecting the ends.

Four: There is a version of Dooku's saber that Oldflash made for K1, found here: http://knightsoftheoldrepublic.filefront.com/file/Movie_Style_Replacement_Lightsaber_Hilts;72773

Editing the model to get it to work in K1 when its meant for K2, isn't something that is looked upon very well here.

Miscellaneous:

The withdraw option could be done with a script, but that isn't something I am very knowledgeable of.

ok thanks, in witch part of the program can I open it?

So if I can edit I can make a new LS with the silver color, Isn't it?

Three: This would take a heavy edit of the model, as it likely isn't as easy as opening up a modeling program and connecting the ends.
ok I think that too, it's so bad :( so I would like to ask more experiment modders than me to try to do this saber (it's a friend of mine who get this image in his profile in another forum : http://i65.servimg.com/u/f65/13/35/76/70/sabre_10.jpg.

Four: There is a version of Dooku's saber that Oldflash made for K1, found here: http://knightsoftheoldrepublic.filefront.com/file/Movie_Style_Replacement_Lightsaber_Hilts;72773
realy thank you I will test that in a few minutes/hours... or tomorow depand of my friends...

Just click File-> Open GFF Files...-> Then just find the file within your override.

Well, if you wanted a "new" lightsaber, simply editing the green blade texture file won't do it. All that would do is change the green C-style saber blade, to a silver blade.

It is, but you would either need to replace one of the other colors, or create a new saber that would use a custom silver blade texture(as in, not the one from TSL).

Oki realy thank you, but I can just change the description, not the color where can I change it please?

if I want a new light saber I just need to chage it name, isn't it? if no what I have to do more than change the color in the file and rename it?
