M4-78 for the game Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords by DStoney64 has been the quickest mod to ever hit 1000 downloads in the history of this site. Like all big mods with lots of content put into it, there are bugs that needed to be addressed. This has always happened with huge mods like this one. I imagine it’s hard not to have a few errors here and there. Just ask Silveredge9 with his Brotherhood of Shadow mod. To me it’s not about the errors or bugs that are found in the mod, it’s how you take care of them is what’s important. Mod supported patches to keep it current and steady as best as you can should be commended and if DStoney64 chooses to address issues as valiantly as Silveredge9 has, then I applaud him.
Despite the bugs that were reported, I have played this mod and it was playable and I was able to complete it without too much trouble. The most difficult part for me was learning my way around the place. It was like playing a new game in a way. I haven’t felt as lost as I felt since I first played TSL back in December of 2004. With careful exploration, I was able to figure out how to complete all the tasks, find Master Lonna Vash, and finish the planet. It did seem short, but it was fun to do.
I did enjoy the ability to have a choice between droids for a solo mission with a droid of my choice and who better to complete the task in my opinion than HK-47. I was able to use the assassin droid to blast droids away with the twin rifles I had equipped on him with ease while using his droid abilities to use the computer and make the planet safe for the Exile to complete the task of finding Master Lonna Vash.
All the bug fixes are mentioned in the readme file. This is just a patch, so make sure you download the original release first and then install this patch. It does use the TSL Patcher, so let that program do the work and you enjoy the benefits of this mod. Enjoy the update! :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.
