Need kotor1 and kotor2 installed?

I know some files from kotor1 can work with Kotor2. But if you only have kotor2 installed you can not edit these files...and sometimes not even use them.

Is there a way to get around the need of having kotor1 installed just to edit or use a few of the files? Can just having only kotor2 installed work?

Theres mods that have been mad that can work with both with user editing of files...but some of the files can not be edited if you don't have kotor1 installed.

Theres some tools that work with both kotor1 and kotor2. But if you don't have kotor1 installed they preform flacky.

I'd rather not have kotor1 installed just to use the tools, mods or files. Should beable to use them with just kotor2 installed.

Well...
Even talking about copying files from the two games is illegal, so realy doing it won't be a good idea unless you'd like George to sew our *insert random limb* off.

OR
You mod Kotor 1

OR
You mod Kotor 2

As Ztalker said, its illegal to port files from one game to the other. Even if you own both and files from one game work with the second.

From our rules thread ( http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=127725 )

14. Mods containing assets (models, textures, sounds, etc.) ported from another game are prohibited
It is against Lucasarts policy to port assets from one game to another. Holowan Laboratories does not condone porting of this nature, and moderators will close or delete any thread or posts discussing such mods. The exception to this is if the asset in question is present in both KOTOR and TSL. Also, modders may create from scratch mods that resemble assets from another game.

~~~~~~~~

Not sure why your version of some of the tools dont work properly if oyu only have K2 installed. The seem to work fine for me withonly TSL installed. Have you tried asking the makers of the tools about it?

I know this might sound like a stupid question, but are you saving/loading the files to/from the correct folder?


There are 10 types of people in the world.
Those who understand binary and those who don't.

I'm not too fat. I'm alive aren't I?

The tools will work as long as you have one of the game installed. However, generally speaking Kotor 1 mods won't work in Kotor 2 and Kotor 2 mods won't work in KotOR 1.

Please read the forum rules concerning porting (already quoted by Jackel).
