Just over a month ago we were given the opportunity to experience Ulic’s Prologue - Peragus - Harbinger Correction Mod for the sequel game, Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords. It was Ulic’s only mod release on the FileFront network and now we get an updated version of this mod.
With a big mod like this, sometimes it’s hard to catch every little bug issue. The biggest issue that was fixed was a crash issue at the end of the Prologue. For those had trouble with that part and reported that issue can now have a sigh of relief to see that fixed. There are also some other little tweaks to better enhanced this mod like some dialogue options and camera angles to better frame some cut scenes. An example of the camera adjustment is when you’re in the mines on Peragus and there is a cut scene where a sensor ball is spying on you and the camera is a little low. What the author did is raise it up a big to better frame it.
This mod does use the TSL Patcher for easy installation and file merging. Make sure you run that to install this mod, especially because of the .2da files that are involved. 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.
======================================================== A KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC II: (THE SITH LORDS) MODIFICATION Prolog, Peragus, and Harbinger Issue Correction Mod ======================================================== Author: Ulic Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Name: Prolog, Peragus, and Harbinger Issue Correction Mod Filename: Prolog_Peragus_Harbinger_Issue_Correction.rar File Size: 8.10 MB (977 KB Archived) Date Released: April 8, 2007 1. Description: ---------- This mod addresses most of the Prolog, Peragus, and early Harbinger issues present in SW: KotORII: TSL version 2.10. These issues include various dialog, scripting, and game play issues, for a complete list of changes see below. Every effort was made to preserve the story as it was and leave the balance of game play unchanged. This is a stand alone mod, however, the idea is that it will function as a nice supplement to all the hard work done by Team Gizka on their TSLRP resulting in a game that is as fun and issue free as possible. Note that this mod is currently only for the English version 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 only effects the beginning stages of the game and will require starting a new game in order to enjoy it. 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 "Prolog, Peragus, Harbinger Issue Correction" mod, taking care to insure that both the "Setup - RUN THIS TO INSTALL.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 Files\LucasArts\SWKotOR2\Modules" by default, must be unchecked as "Read-only" for the installer to function properly: 005EBO_s.rim 101PER.rim 101PER_dlg.erf 101PER_s.rim 102PER.rim 102PER_dlg.erf 102PER_s.rim 103PER_dlg.erf 103PER_s.rim 105PER.rim 105PER_dlg.erf 106PER_dlg.erf 106PER_s.rim 151HAR.rim 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 3). 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, "101PER_loc.mod", located here "C:\Program Files\LucasArts\SWKotOR2\lips" 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.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. Uninstall: ---------- The files listed below may have been modified during the installation of this mod: Within "C:\Program Files\LucasArts\SWKotOR2" dialog.tlk Within "C:\Program Files\LucasArts\SWKotOR2\Modules" 005EBO_s.rim 101PER.rim 101PER_dlg.erf 101PER_s.rim 102PER.rim 102PER_dlg.erf 102PER_s.rim 103PER_dlg.erf 103PER_s.rim 105PER.rim 105PER_dlg.erf 106PER_dlg.erf 106PER_s.rim 151HAR.rim Within "C:\Program Files\LucasArts\SWKotOR2\lips" 101PER_loc.mod Within "C:\Program Files\LucasArts\SWKotOR2\Overide" 151kreia.dlg 153atton.dlg a_ambient.ncs a_compoff.ncs a_coorta_cs.ncs a_door105per.ncs a_droid_blind.ncs a_droid_war.ncs a_hk50intro.ncs a_kreia151dlg.ncs a_neuter_droid.ncs a_opensecdoor.ncs a_outro.ncs a_set103voice.ncs a_sien_cs.ncs a_t3deadspawn.ncs ambientmusic.2da c_checktrans.ncs gar_dor.dlg global.jrl globalcat.2da hatch.dlg intro.dlg k_102exit.ncs k_3cfdspawn.ncs k_atton_ud.ncs k_hk50_103_ud.ncs k_hk50_user.ncs kreia.dlg repcapt.dlg repcapt2.dlg rmedoff.dlg sealdoor.dlg Backups of any file that was altered were made during insanitation and placed in a folder called "backup" within the folder the installer was run from. 1) To uninstall the mod, open your "Override" folder, located here "C:\Program Files\LucasArts\SWKotOR2\Overide" by default, and delete ONLY the files listed above under the "Override" heading. 2) Next open the "backup" folder that was created during installation and replace the files listed above with the files contained within. If a file listed above is missing from the "backup" folder, don't worry, no change was made to that file and it does not have to be replaced. 4.
