1. SUMMARY:
===========

We've all heard it before, and have felt the burden. "Where's the Cheat Console?!? I can't see it!"

Apparently with the introduction to TSL, we also got introduced to the now 'invisible' cheat codes console which makes it very difficult to accurately get what you want. This mod is a fix for that (of sorts).


2. Hak Pad DESCRIPTION:
=======================

What this mod does is allows you to access the game's items via "Virtual Storefronts". So now, not only do you get the item, but you can read the stats, information and such as well as look at them before "creating" the item for yourself. ALL items are included in the variety of Storefronts, and all items are FREE. That's right, FREE, afterall this mod IS a cheating console 'substitute'.

Also, the Hak Pad can award Lightside Points, Darkside Points as well as act as a credit dispenser. PLUS, you can access both a Medical Lab Bench as well as a Workbench.

Because I wanted this to be easily accessible, the Hak Pad can be used from your game's main screen in your usable items bar to the lower left (where the armbands and such are displayed). The item itself is a Datapad, so you don't have to worry about having to equip an item in order to access it's functions.

Please bear in mind this is by no means a replacement for tools such as tk102's SaveGame Editor. That program has MUCH MORE capabilities than this mod. Mine is mainly to be used for in-game cheats without having to exit the game to get them.

http://www.starwarsknights.com/tools.php

One note, this mod will only allow you access to normal in-game items. Not custom items, modded items or anything of that nature. This was one main reason why I decided to use "Storefronts". If you have a little bit of modding knowledge, you can easily "insert" modded items into the Virtual Storefront's inventory. The game will then recognize the new items once you start your game. So in a manner, this mod is 'customizable' to your tastes. However, if your modded items are simply adjusted in-game .uti's (with the same name) those modded items WILL be available within the Storefronts. The inventory calls upon the game's list of item's .uti names.

Upon using the Hak Pad, you WILL notice some items that have no descriptions, or some may have no icons. This is because I've included EVERYTHING from TSL's .uti references. There are visual stunt models, non-upgradeable versions of items and a host of other goodies. I especially urge you to check out the Guns Storefront as it has some unique hand stunts that are amusing to say the least

***************************************
USE THE ITEMS IN THE MOD AT YOUR OWN RISK!!
***************************************

Just like with cheat code console items, some items may have unknown and unforseeable side effects... this mod is to be used as a "tool" of sorts. All it is, is a visual reference substitute to the cheat console. Of course, at least with this mod, there's no .ini hacks to be made. Even if you don't use it to gain the items, it will at least provide you with some stuff so you can experiment or look over if you are curious. I know that due to the random loot generator, some items are rarely, if ever, seen by everyone... Now you have the chance without having to dig out the cheat codes



Feedback and suggestions are most welcome! I'm quite sure that this mod is 'incomplete' and a Work In Progress. There ARE some features I haven't been able to incorperate yet...(such as Ability and Skills adjustments) but future Booster Packs will add on to it's functionality. Any input to what you'd like to see would be welcome

and lastly, ENJOY!


3. STATS: (with Booster Pack v.2)
=================================

- Workbench
- Component Bench
- Medical Bench
- Virtual Items Storefront (FREE Items)
- Awards LS / DS Points
- Dispense Credits
- Create Chemicals Option
- Create Components Option
- Receive the Lightsaber Quest Parts
- "Train" NPC's into a Jedi Class!
- andargor's Holowan CLoakworks 2 Disguises (over 500+)
- Set PC / NPC's Level
- Adjust Skill Point Levels
- Adjust Attribute Scores
- Special Interface for other Modder's Tools


4. INSTALLATION & COMPATIBILITY:
================================

If you haven't done so already, create a folder named "override" (without quotes) in your KotOR II directory.

**- this mod uses a spells.2da file. If you are already using such a file, please read the disclaimer below. It's VERY important that your .2da file isn't located within a sub-folder of your override directory!


************************************************** **********************************
***
*** IMPORTANT! The installer will NOT look for existing files within sub-folders
*** of the Override folder, just in the Override folder itself. If you have
*** modified versions of any of the above listed files (except dialog.tlk) sitting
*** in sub-folders, move them up into the Override folder before running the
*** Installer. This is to avoid ambiguity in case several files with the same
*** name exists in different folders.
***
************************************************** **********************************

Now, from the .rar file... drag-n-drop the folder "TSL Hak Pad" onto your desktop (or folder of your choice).
DO NOT place the folder in your override directory.

Next, open the Hak Pad Folder and run the installer application named "Install_TSLHakPad.exe" that came with this mod. This will update the necessary game files and install the Mod into your game. Make sure that there is a folder named "tslpatchdata" present in the same folder the Installer application is. This folder contains essential data files the installer needs.

Note that you must run this installer for the Mod to function, simply copying the files from the "TSLPatchData" folder will NOT work.


5. USAGE:
=========

1- with cheats enabled, type "~" (without quotes) and enter:

giveitem hak_pad


2-) Press "ENTER"

** For the Anti-Console,

You're out of luck. Since this IS a "cheating/just for fun mod", I didn't feel "right" about adding it in the game. Kinda defeats the purpose. I'd suggest using tk102's Save Game Editor to get it:

http://www.starwarsknights.com/tools.php

Plus, since it's useable from the get go, there's no need to "back track" your steps or start a new game in order to get it.


6. REMOVAL:
===========

When you run the Installer initially, it will create backup copies of any existing files it modifies**. These files will be placed in a new folder named "backup", located in the same folder as the Installer. To uninstall the mod, delete any files that were placed in your Override folder, then copy the content of the Backup folder back into your override folder.

The following files were added to your Override folder when you installed this mod:

Here's a mini- tutorial on how to edit the StoreFronts to add your modded items. I just copied & pasted what I posted over at PCGM in the comments section

------------------------------------

First, you'll need Fred Tetra's KotOR Tool:

http://kotortool.home.comcast.net/index.html

Now, once you start KotOR Tool, goto: File > Open GFF Files...

Depending on what you want to edit (storefront), open the appropriate .utm file

hak_armor.utm --> Armor, Clothing, etc.
hak_bands.utm --> Armbands & Shields
hak_belts.utm --> Belts and Stealth Items
hak_droid.utm --> ALL droid related stuff
hak_explosives.utm --> grenades, mines rockets
hak_jedi.utm --> Robes, Crystals, Sabers and Upgrades
hak_masks.utm --> Masks & Headgear
hak_medical.utm --> Health, Stims & Implants
hak_melee.utm --> Melee Weapons & Upgrades
hak_misc.utm --> Parts, Spikes, Tunnelers, Pazaak Cards, etc.
hak_ranged.utm --> Blasters, Rifles, Upgrades

Once that opens, to your lower left is a button named "Inventory"... Click It

Now here's the tricky stuff...

To your left is the game items, to your right is the store inventory. Grab ANYTHING from the Left side of the screen (a datapad is usually the easiest to distinguish) and drag-n-drop it over to the Right side of the screen (The Inventory)...

Now scroll all the way to the bottom... and you'll see the item you dropped listed...

Click the "Dropable" check box so the check mark goes away

In the "ResRef" column, highlight the entry and type in the ResRef (cheat code) of the modded item you want to be available. Next to that entry, you can enter a quantity (how many of said item you want to be able to buy in one store visit)... enter any number from 1-99

Now, check the "Dropable" box so that the check mark appears again...

** You don't have to enter a "Name", KotOR Tool will erase it anyways, so there's no point in it

Voila!

Now, click the "OK" button to the lower right, then on the smaller window click the "Save" button and save either to your override folder or wherever you opened the file from.

** Make sure when all is said and done, you drop the new edited and saved file in your override...

Hope That Helps!

This mod is awesome!!!
I just have one question about it, I like to keep my Override folder kinda organized, in the main folder I only keep the .2da files and I create folders with the mod's name inside the Override to place the .uti's, .ncs and others.
The TSL patcher can install it like this or I have to do it manually?
If so, do I just put those files I see in your post in the folder of this mod or there are more?

As long as your spells.2da is located in the main override folder, it should install nicely... however, DON'T place the "TSL Hak Pad" folder (located in the .rar) in your override directory... it'll screw things up

When it installs, the Hak files will be located in your main override folder (from there, you can now move those files into an individual folder)...

But as you've alreadyy done, it's always good to keep your .2da's in the main override directory

I've named my files pretty self-evident so moving/deleting etc. is easy... just search for "hak" and it'll find every file included in the mod (other than spells.2da) hehehehe....

DUDE, All I can say is DUDE

P.S. could it be possible to acces a visible console with your mod as well???

I'm not sure what you mean?

Do you mean like a "list" of cheat codes... or an actual visible cursor line?

I have tried every way from Sunday in order to get the console visible...

From overriding all game fonts, ever .ini hack I know of (and there's alot ) to manually editing all of the Game's GUI's to know avail.... this mod was my final answer out of futility...

I was just gooing to make it a list you could select from, but the Shops were MUCH easier... I would've had to make a giveitem script for every item.. and well, I'm just not that talented when it comes to scripting... ask anyone here hehehe....

Very nice. Reminds me a bit about my debug force power, though that one doesn't contain stores with all game items. Too lazy for that kind of work, good thing someone else was not.

I meant, a dialog box that would let you see what you're typing, but I guess by what you said that it isn't possible, sorry to bother you, But it sounds great and I'm gonna DL soon

Hmmm...
Sorry to keep bothering you guys
But I can't find the made items in the left place.
I even clicked on Custom Items and nothing. Does it has to be placed somewhere specifically?

Made items? Are you talking about modded items?

If so, you won't be able to find them. Fred hasn't added that functionality in it yet... you'll need to drag any of the items from the left of the screen to the right side of the screen, THEN change that item's ResRef (cheat code) to the modded item's ResRef...

Ahhhhh!!
Ok, just one last question
It can be any kind of item?
Like I'm trying to include an armor, do I have to get another armor or I can get anything like a datapad?

It can be any item you wish

I just use datapads as they are "easy to find" in a shop... if you use an armor .uti in an armor shop.... things can get confusing if you accidentally sort the columns before scrolling to the very bottom

Well now, the Holowan Emporium for TSL is now in circulation! Nice work!

But one question ChAiNz... What took you so long?

I'll strike it up to me being fickle and set in my "old" ways... I just have to try the impossible and frustrating route before I do the obvious solution hehehe..

Besides, everyone is blowing me away with released mods so I was getting jealous of my low turnout rate for TSL. Peer Pressure!

Hello everyone, I'm having some trouble with this mod. I've downloaded the file, extracted it onto the desktop with "TSLPatchData" folder. I am able to access the "Install_TSLHakPad.exe" file, however after the warning about the spell 2DA file I click YES and an error screen appears that states... "RichEdit line insertion error."

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hey Yohan,

That's a first for me?? To be honest, I'm not even sure what that means.. yoohoo! stoffe, any ideas?

Yohan, can you copy and paste the contents of the "installlog.rtf"? When the installation began, it should've placed this file in the same folder where the .exe file is.

No idea, haven't encountered that one before. That's the disadvantage of being just one person with one computer to test on, hard to find all odd things that can happen to others but conveniently never happens to yourself.

@yohan: Did this happen as soon as you pressed the button to start the installation? Was the info-text cleared before it happened? What OS version and OS language are you using? Have you installed any other mods that use the same installer app, and if so did the same happen there?

Dang. Was about to release my own version of this mod I made back in may.

Oh well, all in good fun

What's up with pcgamemods today, I've been trying to download it for the last 10 minutes and I'm on a broadband isp...

I don't suppose you have uploaded this mod somewhere else?

No rules saying you can't release it man, maybe we can learn from each other and how we incorporated stuff

As for another download location, you can download the mod at my site (JumpStationZ) as well. The link is in my sig (just go to the mods section)

Okay, I'm using an English OS. (However I have installed an East Asian Language recently).

I don't think I have used this kind of program before.

The error screen with the RichEdit error appears after I click the YES on the confirm window and the RTF window appears.

However only one line appears before the error screen appears which is...
?Installation started 7/10/2005 2:32:35 PM...

Thanks for the help!

I just re-read your first post and noticed the word "extracted" (as in the function?)... try this way instead (if you haven't already)..

When you open the .rar file you'll see a folder named "TSL Hak Pad". Now, instead of extracting the contents, drag-n-drop that entire folder (not just the contents) onto tyour desktop. Don't use the extract function, just a simple drag should do.

Once the folder is on your desktop, open it and you'll see the "Source" folder, the "tslpatchdata" folder, the readme.txt and the "Install_TSLHakPad.exe" file.

Double-click the .exe file to start the install.

Do you get the error message now? OR if you get past that point and it asks you where your game install is, make sure you point it to the KotOR II game folder. Default path is:

C:\Program Files\LucasArts\SWKotOR2

Does it come up with the error message now?

I'm not sure but I think if you use "extract" it saves folder path information that could possibly mess up something (I didn't pack the .rar with folder paths).

If that's not the problem, make sure you're not running the install.exe from inside the override folder.. that will mess stuff up... best to run it from your desktop, then once it's installed... move the folder to your choosing (again, NOT the override folder)... the installer should copy, append and edit any file it needs to so there shouldn't be any "active" work for you to do rather than double-click the install.exe...

Let me know if that helps

The 'Extract function doesn't seem to be the problem because I just redid it and the same error message apeeared

I don't get a window that asks me where the KOTOR II file path is.

The error screen appears after the confirm window appears asking....

Are you sure you want to install? Be sure if you have a spells.2da file, it is in your main override folder, NOT in a sub-folder.

After clicking yes the installlog.rtf appears with the ?Installation started with the RichEdit error.

I've tried to mess around with the installer in any way I could think of, but I can't reproduce that error, so I have no idea what could be causing it.

Are you using Windows XP? Do you have a 64 bit processor?


As a last resort, try this: Go into the tslpatchdata folder and find the changes.ini file. Open this with notepad and look for a key named LogLevel under the [Settings] section. Change the value from 3 (I assume) to 0 and save the modified changes.ini file.

This should deactivate the progress log and do a "silent" install, which will hopefully bypass the error. The disadvantage of this is that you won't know how the installation proceeds and you won't see any errors/warnings etc it encounters.


A bit ironic, I made that application to make it easier for people to install some types of mods, but it seems like it creates more problems than it solves.

THANK THE LORD!!! IT'S ALIVE!!! IT'S ALIVE!!!

Thanks for the help the program works fine now...

I modified the changes.ini file like you said and it worked!

However I think it was my RTF file that was screwing up the installation...

THANKS!!! Hak pad works great!!!

hehehe... glad you're enjoying it

@stoffe
Hmm... I would've never thought of that little trick, thanks for coming to the rescue!

Though even with this incident, I'm still going to keep placing "#3" option for install logging

At least now, I know of a 'fix' if the problem should arise again...

I have just 1 more question about this
In the Misc Menu for the items, where are the components?
I looked and I didnt found them.
Components don't have an specific item?
If so, then which item there can be used to make lots of it?

Yah, I noticed this too

Apparently when adding components/chemicals and such.. they appear as broken items in a store's inventory...(damn it all)...

The broken items can be 'broken down' into components for use with the workbench, but unfortunately it still doesn't solve the missing chemicals...

I'm working on a booster pack that will correct this 'oversight'.. by adding another node similiar to the ATM function... From there, you'll be able to receive chemicals and components...

I should have it done sometime within the week... sorry about that, but there will be other goodies released with the Booster Pack as well to make up for it.. hehehe

Dang! You people make my job easy. I was thinking of revising the Emporium, but I see that ChAiNz.2da has done a far better job in functionality than the original Emporium.

I used it extensively after beating the game "clean", great job!
