Music Enhancement For K1

This mod is a remastering of most of the sounds present in K1, much as what PastramiX has done for TSL.

From the Readme:

Code:
Music Enhancement For K1 Readme

Version: 1.0

Developer: Star Admiral

Date: 11/28/08

What This Mod Does:
Unlike the disaster that was the original soundtrack of TSL, the music of the
original KOTOR was actually reasonably mixed. However, the quality was still 
lacking, as it was encoded in one channel with a sample rate of 22kHz and a 
sample size of only 8-bit. This mod, inspired by the excellently done 
remastering of the music of TSL by PastramiX, will remaster the music of 
KOTOR. All decodable music files were decompressed using Miles Sound 
Studio and subsequently remastered with two channel stereo audio with a 
sample rate of 44kHz and a sample size of 16-bit. The resultant files were 
then recoded as MP3 files at the maximum bitrate of 320kbps. In addition, 
the soundtrack files have ID3 tags attached to them so that you can put the 
entire soundtrack on an MP3 player.

Installation Instructions:
To install this file, there are several steps to follow. First, go to your default 
KOTOR installation folder, usually at C:\Program Files\LucasArts\SWKOTOR\ 
and backup your entire StreamMusic folder. Keep it in a safe place in case 
you wish to uninstall this mod. Afterward, go to the StreamMusic folder that 
you will use and delete all the WAV files that do not begin with “al_”. Make 
sure that you leave the remaining WAV files inside the folder. Lastly, copy 
over all the files from this mod folder into your StreamMusic folder.

Uninstallation Instructions:
To uninstall this mod, delete the StreamMusic folder from your main KOTOR 
folder and restore the one that you backed up when you installed this mod. 

Compatibility Issues:
As this mod edits sound files only, it will be compatible with any other mod 
that doesn’t also change the sound files inside the StreamMusic folder. 

Bugs:
None that I know of. If there is, it is most likely due to a misnaming of a 
sound file. Contact me and I’ll see what I can do to fix the problem. On a 
side note, most of the sound files are remastered properly, but on testing 
this mod, I did locate one sound file that had some scratchy noise in it, most 
likely due to a faulty MP3 encoding. If there are any other sound files that 
have this problem, be sure to contact me and provide a description as to 
where the sound was playing so that I may recode it to eliminate the noise.

Contact Information:
You can email me at staradmiral@hotmail.com or you can find me hanging out 
at the Holowan Labs at various times of the day under the user name Star 
Admiral. I’ll do my best to get back to you ASAP.

Credits:
A million thanks go out to all the people at the Holowan Labs who have 
tirelessly spoon-fed me information on modding either KOTOR or TSL, the 
geniuses who created the wonderful how-to modding tutorials, and the other 
modders whose work I shamelessly disassembled to learn how they did what 
they did. I’m looking at mainly DarthParametric, RedHawke, stoffe, 
ChAiNz.2da, TriggerGod, and Ferc Kast, without whom I could not have 
learned as much as I did. For this mod, I must also hand out thanks to 
PastramiX for remastering the music of TSL and to Sith Holocron for 
prompting me to start this mod. Hopefully this mod will live up to the high 
bars set previously for the TSL remastering. Thanks again. =)

Terms of Use:
Naturally, you can modify these files for your personal use. You also may use 
them in any mod if you would like, but please give me credit. That's all I ask.

THIS MODIFICATION IS NOT MADE, DISTRIBUTED, OR SUPPORTED BY 
BIOWARE, OR LUCASARTS ENTERTAINMENT

Screenshots:
Well, as this is a sound mod, it's a bit difficult to post a screenshot.

With any luck, this mod will prove comparable PastramiX's one. Have fun with it.

Try this.

Anyways, when I finally break down and buy K1, this will be one of the mods I try, along with all the K1 mods I want.
