hi all i saw the KOTOR2 Models yersterday and they look so nice.... i would like to play with them in JKA

can someone enough talented can make them ? or convert the kotor2 models into JKA GLM?

i know PCGM disable all models conversion from other games.... BUt all people that bought the game KOTOR should be allowed to do use them in the game they want for their private use....

so if someone want to make it and if this is not allowed to post in on public forums perhaps he can give me the link of the models by email ))> [email]slider744@hotmail.com[/email]....

LIke that i will be able to use them for my private use only without hurting the law....

Or perhaps someone can explain to me how to convert them so that i convert them for my private use myself?

i made all the extraction of several models (atris darthband darthnihilus darthsion darthtraya kreia mira yoda) with all images

i have even imported all models into Gmax i have thefore all .gmax model

i have also the plgin to import all in 3dsmax

i just don't have the time and knowledge to set all bones and tags on surfaces

is any body want to do it? i can give you all needed files

These models get disabled because they're illegal. Learn before you post. Ported models break the KotOR EULA, therefore are illegal.

Hmm, so if you kill someone in the privacy of your own home, is it less illegal?

Not really, unless it's self defense. However, I daresay you can not port a model in self defense.

im not very knowledgable on this, but surely if you own kotor, and your not distributing the files to anybody else who doesnt own it, then surely its not illegal, like copying games. just my thoughts lol

yes of course extracting files of the games you bought is not illegal... you have even plenty of KOTOR2 mods at PCgamemods that have extracting kotor2 things in order to modify them.... but sure this is for use in kotor2 and not in another game

and you know a lot of maps are using textures from other games... for exemple i saw sky box from SOF2 in JKA on some maps... i also saw some music from other games used in maps for JKA....

even some JK2 maps are reused in JKA porting some missing textures....

as you see a lot of mods which are not disable are using a lot of things from other games....

but this is not the question here.... if this is not allowed at JK3files or pcgamemods or lucasfiles, i respect those rules... this is not my will to disrespect those rules....

i just want to use those models in JKA because i like them and that i want to make movie using them.... i bought my game and therefore i can do what i want for my personal use with the files i bought..... extracting things in KOTOR game is not illegal......... this is like extracting model and skin from the jKA assets to modify them. this is not allowed to extract them in order to use them in another game... but i will nto release it publically... this is only for my personal use....
