"Original" appearance.2da? (Dumb title)


Hello dear Kotor community, hope I'm putting this silly question in the right thread.
Feel free to move/delete it and such if there's already a FAQ or topic somewhere explaining the problem I am experiencing.

I'm wondering if there is a chance of acquire the original appearance.2da file that comes with the game.

I'm quite confident that there was a appearance.2da file in my override folder during my first play through, before i started installing mods and the like.
From the looks of it, most mods don't include a fully compatible appearance.2da file, but rather edits the existing one.
But seeing as I don't have the appearance.2da file any longer (Forgot to backup)..

I'm asking this because I tried to install quite a few mods that supposedly were adding lines to the appearance.2da file using a installer, I hoped that it would work even though I don't have the "original" file. Though there seems to be quite a few incompatibilities (As in, they don't fully "work").

I did try an older mod, where i simply extracted the contents to my override folder. That seemed to work, I can only guess it worked because the older generations of Kotor mods included the full appearance.2da file.

I might as well add that I have no problem whatsoever with mods that don't make changes in the appearance.2da file, but rather replaces an existent one. Or with mods that doesn't include an installer (Older mods, however odd that sounds).

Anyway, I'm most likely totally off/wrong about this. Perhaps I should just do a re-install the game and hope for the best.


Ps. Anyone need a smaller crew of voice actors, or a NPC dialog writer? (BG2 has grown too stale)
