From the readme:
New Beam Effects
by Darth InSidious

This mod replaces the Force Drain, Force Lightning, Death Field, cold ray, ion, and neural pacifier beam effects with ones based on the unused Dxun Lava Fall texture, which has a bit more detail to it.
The mod also replaces the drain effect on enemies with one in a matching colour and slightly larger.

Just drop the files fx_beam01, fx_beam02, fx_beam03, Fx_Drain.tga, and Fx_Lightning.tga in this archive into your Override folder.

Take the files out again. :)

No. The textures used to make these are only in KotOR II.

Another DI mod added to the collection. Also added TG's enhanced lightning mod per reccomendation.

v2.0 now available! (http://deadlystream.com/forum/files/file/221-hi-res-beam-effects/)
Now contains Force Lightning and Death Field effects, and uses the same hi-res textures made for the K1 version.
