These 2 questions may be interpreted as crazy, but I'd like to know if they're possible. 1. By opening the pk.3 for a skin that has no bot support, is there a simple way to make it with support? (such as typing something into the pk.3).

2. For a character already with bot support, is there a way to change the lightsaber color that it originally came with? (again by simply typing or changing something in the pk.3 file).

I'd appreciate any assistance with this. Many thanks. :)

to tell you the truth,your first question, is not possable(correct me if I'm wrong).

and the saber color a bot draws on is in its "bot file" located in......oh who cares(lol)

so changing that would give it a new saber color :D

,hope that helps!

don't know about your no1 question, but for No2 open the pk3 file find the (skinname).bot scripts file and open it with note pad and it should have in order: { name "(name of bot)" model (model bot is baced on) color1 (the number repazenting the color of light saber) personality /botfiles/(name of bot).jpg // bla bla bla you get my drift.. I think if you change the number after the "color1" path (between 1 to 6 i think) it will changer the color, each number reposents a saber color. Got that??? Does that help??

Yes, thank you. But unfortunately I don't know how to do the notepad thing. I was hoping to simply change something in the pk.3 itself by deleting a number or word and replacing it. Just like when you type something, then decide to change it you hit backspace to erase it then type in what you want. Nevermind just disregard this topic. Unless someone is physically here with me to show me how to do these things, I am lost.

You can open pk3 files with winzip, and when they are open you will see a list of files, and the .bot script will be in there, ya right ckick on it and select "open with" and a list of programs you can use will come up, and in that list is "notepad" click on that and it will open it, then you will see what i mean.

For your first question, it IS possible. You have to create a new bot file (or just use an existent one) with your model datas (name, sabercolor, personality, and so on...).

Just forget it. I've gone on the internet trying to find a tutorial on this, but with no luck. I've said before, I'm technically challenged. I won't screw up my game, computer or anything else because I don't know what the hell I'm doing. So unless someone has the perfect solution, lets just drop it and move on. I'll just leave things the way the are. Thanks anyway. (can't anything ever be easy?)

How much easier do you want it???? geez. Editing in Notepad is the simplest kind of editing....it's merely TYPING! All you're doing is changing one number. And besides, even if for some reason, you somehow screw it up, all that will happen is jk2 won't start and will give you an error while loading...then you just go back and put your file back the way it was. And to answer your first question...i haven't done it myself yet, but if you download botmaker.zip which you should be able to find on jk2files.com, then you can use that to write the bot script for you.
