quick question

I have a small question, probably considered quite stupid by most. Is it possible to combine .jrl files? It's annoying that so many KOTOR 1 mods use global.jrl and I was wondering if that could be circumvented,


HK-47: I'm 98% percent certain this miniature organic meatbag wants you to help find his fellow miniature organic meatbags.
You: And the other 2 percent?
HK-47: The other 2 percent is that he is just looking for trouble and needs to be blasted, but that might just be wishful thinking on my part.

HK-47: Love is making a shot to the knees of a target 120 kilometers away using an Aratech sniper rifle with a tri-light scope.

ALL BOW TO THE MEATBAG KILLING POWER OF HK-47!

Stoffe's Global JRL Merger does exactly this. You will also need KotOR Tool to make it all happen.

You can find both in the Tools section!

It's helpful for integrating RedHawke's mods, and Darkkender's mod, with the other more recent patcher friendly mods.

Recommendation - On a fresh install of KotOR, install RedHawke's mods first, and don't worry about replacing his global.jrl's - they're all the same, as he made his K1 jrl compatible with all of his mods. Then install any other non-patcher friendly mod next that contains a global jrl, excluding that global jrl file. Set it aside in a new folder perhaps, called "xxx JRL" where xxx stands for the name of that particular mod. Repeat this process as many times as necessary. Then follow the steps for the global jrl merger tool, which will tell you where to find an unaltered global.jrl to extract. Merge as many times as you have "xxx JRL" folders, and then proceed to install the patcher friendly mods.... and you will be optimized, ready to rock.

Are You using KotOR Tool ? .. If not, I suggest you do .. it's very simple .. Open KT -> BIFs -> _newbif.bif -> Journal Files -> global.jrl ... select it and press the Extract button
Otherwise I'm am sorry for my incompetence to help you in this matter ..


Re-Installing your computer without back-up is not a good idea ...
