File Description

Does that invisible console in TSL just annoying the heck out of you? Don’t hate if you make a typo, you can’t see it? Kind of frustrating, isn’t it? Well, this mod has the answer to your problem.

ChAiNz.2da has brought to us something to replace that annoying invisible console. Sort of speak. It won’t give you items you have created, or items you have downloaded there were not intended for the game. Never fear if you want to access those new custom items in this mod. You can make changes so they are available for use. Read the readme to get more information.

The main reason for this type of mod is to be able to get you items without have to type them out in that annoying invisible console, and possibly having to save your game and quit to use the Save Game Editor. Now, this is not a mod that is meant to replace the KSE, because it does have more to offer, but just a quick convenience to get items that you really want to have at that moment.

This mod does use the TSL Patcher for installation to merge the Spells.2da files for those who do not have any modding skills. Please read the instructions before installing. And course, enjoy the mod.

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.

1. SUMMARY:
===========

We've all heard it before, and have felt the burden. "Where's the Cheat Console?!? I can't see it!"

Apparently with the introduction to TSL, we also got introduced to the now 'invisible' cheat codes console which makes it very difficult to accurately get what you want. This mod is a fix for that (of sorts).



2. Hak Pad DESCRIPTION:
=======================

What this mod does is allows you to access the game's items via "Virtual Storefronts". So now, not only do you get the item, but you can read the stats, information and such as well as look at them before "creating" the item for yourself. ALL items are included in the variety of Storefronts, and all items are FREE. That's right, FREE, afterall this mod IS a cheating console 'substitute'.

Also, the Hak Pad can award Lightside Points, Darkside Points as well as act as a credit dispenser. PLUS, you can access both a Medical Lab Bench as well as a Workbench.

Because I wanted this to be easily accessible, the Hak Pad can be used from your game's main screen in your usable items bar to the lower left (where the armbands and such are displayed). The item itself is a Datapad, so you don't have to worry about having to equip an item in order to access it's functions.

Please bear in mind this is by no means a replacement for tools such as tk102's SaveGame Editor. That program has MUCH MORE capabilities than this mod. Mine is mainly to be used for in-game cheats without having to exit the game to get them.

One note, this mod will only allow you access to normal in-game items. Not custom items, modded items or anything of that nature. This was one main reason why I decided to use "Storefronts". If you have a little bit of modding knowledge, you can easily "insert" modded items into the Virtual Storefront's inventory. The game will then recognize the new items once you start your game. So in a manner, this mod is 'customizable' to your tastes. However, if your modded items are simply adjusted in-game .uti's (with the same name) those modded items WILL be available within the Storefronts. The inventory calls upon the game's list of item's .uti names.

Upon using the Hak Pad, you WILL notice some itmes that have no descriptions, or some may have no icons. This is because I've included EVERYTHING from TSL's .uti references. There are visual stunt models, non-upgradeable versions of items and a host of other goodies. I especially urge you to check out the Guns Storefront as it has some unique hand stunts that are amusing to say the least ;)

USE THE ITEMS IN THE MOD AT YOUR OWN RISK!! *
                                            *
*********************************************



Just like with cheat code console items, some items may have unknown and unforseeable side effects... this mod is to be used as a "tool" of sorts. All it is, is a visual reference substitute to the cheat console. Of course, at least with this mod, there's no .ini hacks to be made. Even if you don't use it to gain the items, it will at least provide you with some stuff so you can experiment or look over if you are curious. I know that due to the random loot generator, some items are rarely, if ever, seen by everyone... Now you have the chance without having to dig out the cheat codes ;)

Feedback and suggestions are most welcome! I'm quite sure that this mod is 'incomplete' and a Work In Progress. There ARE some features I haven't been able to incorperate yet...(such as Ability and Skills adjustments) but future Booster Packs will add on to it's functionality. Any input to what you'd like to see would be welcome :)

and lastly, ENJOY!





3. STATS:
=========

- Workbench
- Medical Bench
- Virtual Items Storefront
- Awards LS / DS Points
- Dispense Credits





4. INSTALLATION & COMPATIBILITY:
================================

If you haven't done so already, create a folder named "override" (without quotes) in your KotOR II directory.

**- this mod uses a spells.2da file. If you are already using such a file, please read the disclaimer below. It's VERY important that your .2da file isn't located within a sub-folder of your override directory!


************************************************************
***
***  IMPORTANT! The installer will NOT look for existing files within sub-folders
***  of the Override folder, just in the Override folder itself. If you have
***  modified versions of any of the above listed files (except dialog.tlk) sitting
***  in sub-folders, move them up into the Override folder before running the
***  Installer. This is to avoid ambiguity in case several files with the same
***  name exists in different folders.
***
************************************************************

Now, from the .rar file... drag-n-drop the folder "TSL Hak Pad" onto your desktop (or folder of your choice).
DO NOT place the folder in your override directory.

Next, open the Hak Pad Folder and run the installer application named "Install_TSLHakPad.exe" that came with this mod. This will update the necessary game files and install the Mod into your game. Make sure that there is a folder named "tslpatchdata" present in the same folder the Installer application is. This folder contains essential data files the installer needs.

Note that you must run this installer for the Mod to function, simply copying the files from the "TSLPatchData" folder will NOT work.





5. USAGE:
=========


1- with cheats enabled, type "~" (without quotes) and enter:

giveitem hak_pad


2-) Press "ENTER"

** For the Anti-Console,

You're out of luck. Since this IS a "cheating/just for fun mod", I didn't feel "right" about adding it in the game. Kinda defeats the purpose. I'd suggest using tk102's Save Game Editor to get it:

http://www.starwarsknights.com/tools.php

Plus, since it's useable from the get go, there's no need to "back track" your steps or start a new game in order to get it.



6. REMOVAL:
===========

When you run the Installer initially, it will create backup copies of any existing files it modifies**. These files will be placed in a new folder named "backup", located in the same folder as the Installer. To uninstall the mod, delete any files that were placed in your Override folder, then copy the content of the Backup folder back into your override folder.

The following files were added to your Override folder when you installed this mod:

spells.2da **
cz_hakpad.ncs
hak_armor.ncs
