I am playing TSL for the first time and enjoying it very much, i was waiting for some years for a mod project to succeed in fixing most of the bugs and now that we have one, a great one it appears, I have begun. But. I was surprised at the very low quality of some of the vids in Peragus, the opening ones of the asteroid field when you fix the ship and again when you escape, and also the star field when you first go outside in the space suit. The ones of the field were very grainy and poorly done. In contrast the vids of the bridge of the ship and even the one of the ship arriving are pretty good.

I do have the supposedly enhanced video add on, and re added it twice to be sure i had actually replaced the original movies. Is there a story behind some of these being such poor quality and is there any way to improve them? Just wondered as the game itself is great and I am enjoying it a lot.

Did you download all the Enhanced Video parts?

yep i have all six parts. I will post some plcs later of the several videos i have questions about, they are quite blurry and seem not up to the quality of the others. thanks for the reply.

Specifically they are the one with the Ebon Hawk entering the Peragus facility for the first time and then later on when we leave on the Ebon Hawk and we see the asteroid field exploding. Those ones in the field.

This is such a wonderful game overall so far, i just wanted to get the best quality possible.

btw in the line of improvments i found a wonderful improved sky box for Nar Shaddaa by Sharen Thrawn in case anyone did not know about it:

here is one of the vid pics from the video as the Ebon Hawk leaves the station....

what surprised me was the much higher quality of some of the other vids, like the one that showed the dead on the Harbringer...

also i was puzzled by the overall pattern of stars outside during the space walk to the dormitory, it was just like a lattice of the same texture all over, it does not show up that way in the pics interestigly enough but with my FX 6600 GT card, it is an overall lattice of the same texture piece of stars so much so that it looks like a big screen door....

I wonder if anyone has done a new backgorund sky box for the space scene, it is a cool scene with the ship landing and all, it is worthy of a really good space sky... imho.

Sorry to hijack the topic, but you mention some bug-fixing project that you enjoy oh-so-much. I loved kotor I, but never got to play the follow-up because of all the bugs (not interested atm in new conent and/or restorations). Can you please name the mod project you're talking about, because to be honest, I'm lost in the forums. Thank you and please forgive me for bugging you like this.

Two of our most talented modders and helpers have made a fantastic comprehensive patch for TSL KoTOR II that is wonderful, it adds almost all the possible restorations in one pack, here is the thread to get it and all the posts about it: enjoy, i am :)
