I started a new game and now everything is working fine... and am I glad I did. This mod is absolutely brilliant!
Silveredge9 has made a mod that is superior in many aspects to the game itself. I had high hopes from what I'd read about this mod, but it honestly exceeded them all. I'm not the entire way through the mod yet (currently playing through the "Black Robed Man" part).. but this is far and above the best mod I've ever seen for KOTOR or TSL in every single way.
