Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords had a lot of cut content. So much was cut that three years ago Team Gizka was formed and started making the TSL Restoration Project. One of the projects they decided not to restore was the planet that was cut, M4-78. It’s a droid planet and now you have the chance to explore another planet.
Remember on Korriban when you find Master Lonna Vash dead? Well, what if that part was removed and she is found alive and well on M4-78. How about sparing her if you’re on the light side of the Force and she later joins up with Jedi Masters Kavar, Ell, and Vrook on Dantooine near the end of the game? Sound like fun?
All those things are possible with DStoney64’s FileFront debut. This mod is has been in the works a very long time. This restores M4-78 as closely as it was originally to be. This mod was going to be a part of the Team Exile’s K2RP, but when that team disbanded, DStoney64 decided to take his project solo which was good because all that work shouldn’t die.
There was so much work behind it that it will require a fresh game in order for everything to work well. You will find some additional voiced dialogue in this mod so there will be no mute dialogue to worry about. I had fun listening to all the new audio put into this mod when evaluating it. Given the size and time it would take to play it, I just didn’t have the time if you guys want it up as soon as possible, so I’ll have to try it out later and give my thoughts in the comments once I do. Besides, gotta leave some surprises. ;)
The TSL Patcher will be used to install this mod so no worries to those who have no modding skills. Enjoy M4-78! :D
Note: Please leave the author feedback, especially if you download this mod and use it. It really helps encourage the author to make more mods in the future.
UPDATE: Make sure you download the 1.1a patch and the movies after you install this mod:
IMPORTANT NOTE! THE INSTALL WILL FAIL IF THIS IS NOT DONE FIRST! 1) The following files in the "Modules" folder, located here "C:Program FilesLucasArtsSWKotOR2Modules" by default must have "Read-only" unchecked for the installer to function properly: 003EBO_s.rim 853NIH_s.rim 003EBO.rim 853NIH_dlg.erf 650DAN.rim 907MAL_s.rim 650DAN_s.rim 650DAN_dlg.erf 702KOR.rim 702KOR_s.rim 702KOR_dlg.erf To do this quickly right click on the "Modules" folder and select "Properties". Under the "General" tab near the bottom uncheck "Read-only" and click the "Apply" button (if "Read-only" was not checked skip to step 2). A new window will pop up. Select "Apply changes to this folder, subfolders, and files" and click OK. 2) Additionally, "650DAN_loc.mod"and”localization.mod” located here "C:Program FilesLucasArtsSWKotOR2lips" by default, must also be unchecked as "Read-only". 3) Also make sure that both the "TSLPatcher.exe" file and the "tslpatchdata" folder are located in the same folder and that that folder is NOT within the SWKotORII folder hierarchy. (Read the included Read me for more through instructions) Once the steps above have been completed click the "Install Mod" button below to proceed with the installation. Note that a folder named "backup" will be created within the folder the installer is run from and must be saved if the mod is to ever be uninstalled. Attached below is the included read me file: ======================================================== A KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC II: (THE SITH LORDS) MODIFICATION M4-78 addon Mod ======================================================== Author: DarthStoney Contact:PM at Lucas Forums Name: M4-78 addon Modv1.1 Filename: M4_78_addon.rar File Size: 41mb Date Released:4/14/08 1. Description: ---------- This mod adds the planet of M4-78 by removing Vash from Korriban and adding her to M4-78 and for her to be at Dantooine if left alive. These issues include various dialogs, scripting, and game play issues, for a complete list of changes see below. . This is a stand alone mod; however, the idea is that once Team Gizka is finished with their TSLRP this will be made fully compatible. Note that this mod is currently only for the English versions of the game, other language versions are not supported. Great care has been taken to ensure compatibility with other mods but I make no promises. Lastly, by its vary nature this mod effects 702Korriban, the 003EbonHawk,the galaxy map. It also adds the EbonHawk container to the cargo hold , also 650DAN the meeting with the Jedi Masters at the end as well as a whole new list of globals for M478 and will require starting a new game in order for it to work properly. 2. Install: ---------- (It is highly recommended that you update your game to version 2.10 (the 1.0b update) before installing this mod.) 1) Extract the "M4-78 v1.1 Addon" mod, taking care to insure that both the "Setup - RUN THIS TO INSTALL M4-78 MOD.exe" file and "tslpatchdata" folder are extracted to the same folder (these files can be extracted to any folder on your hard drive EXCEPT those within the SWKotOR2 folder hierarchy). Also note that simply copying the files within "tslpatchdata" to your "Override" folder will not properly install the mod. 2) The following files in the "Modules" folder, located here "C:Program FilesLucasArtsSWKotOR2Modules" by default, must be unchecked as "Read-only" for the installer to function properly: 003EBO_s.rim 853NIH_s.rim 003EBO.rim 907MAL_s.rim 650DAN.rim 853NIH_dlg.erf 650DAN_s.rim 650DAN_dlg.erf 702KOR.rim 702KOR_s.rim 702KOR_dlg.erf To do this quickly right click on the "Modules" folder and select "Properties". Under the "General" tab near the bottom uncheck "Read-only" and click the "Apply" button (if "Read-only" was not checked skip to step 2). A new window will pop up. Select "Apply changes to this folder, subfolders, and files" and click OK. If you woule rather do this individually for each file you may do so, however, no harm will be done by unselecting "Read-only" for the entire folder. 3) Additionally, "650DAN_loc.mod"and”localization_loc.mod”, located here "C:Program FilesLucasArtsSWKotOR2lips" by default, must also be unchecked as "Read-only". Right click on the file select "Properties". Under the "General" tab near the bottom uncheck "Read-only" and click the "Apply" button. 4) Once "Read-only" has been unchecked for each file, run the "Setup - RUN THIS TO INSTALL M4-78 MOD.exe" file that was extracted earlier to begin installation of the mod. 5) Once installed simply start a new game. Note a new folder named "backup" will be created during insanitation within the folder the installer was run from. If you plan on uninstalling this mod this folder and the files therein must not be deleted as they are used during the uninstall process. 3.
