Remember at the beginning of the month when my fellow staff member, Darth InSidious brought us some new loading screens to play with for the game Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords? Well, if you read comment #6 by SpaceAlex, he reveals that he has something like that planned himself, but it was pointless because Darth InSidious released his version. Well, it looks like he decided to release his version after all and here it is; released to the public for anyone to enjoy. :)
This new mod will give you 75 new loading screens to add to your TSL experience. From what I understand they’ll replace each loading screen in the game besides the swoop track ones. Still, that is a lot of new screenshots to check out while you’re waiting for a new module to load up. It’s a big download size; a whooping 56 megabytes. Wait till you unzip the contents. :p Yeah, that will put 300 megabytes into your override folder. The size is worth it if you think these are really amazing.
The TSL Patcher is used to install this mod. At first I was surprised to see the TSL Patcher set up when I examined the mod, but the author has made changes to the loadscreens.2da file. It’s more than likely that nobody has that in their override folder, but just in case the author thought it was just best make it compatible with any out there that don’t have that. Enjoy the new loading screens! :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.
============================================================ KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC II - The Sith Lords MODIFICATION ============================================================ AUTHOR: SpaceAlex EMAIL: [email protected] NAME: TSL Improved Loading Screens CREDITS: Obsidian Entertainment for Kotor II, Fred Tetra for KOTRO Tool, Stoffe for the TSL Patcher, and Nur Ab Sal for the insparation. FILENAME: TSL_Improved_Loading_Screens.7z FILE SIZE: 55 mb zipped, 300 mb extracted DATE RELEASED: May 25, 2008 DESCRIPTION: This will replace practically every (with the exception of those for the swoop tracks) loading screenshot in the game with concept art and high resolution screenshots (the modules for which I could find no appropriate concept art for) with Anti-Aliasing and anisotropic filtering enabled. Photoshop was used to make the loading screens look sharper and more detailed, which drastically improves their overall quality. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Unzip, run the installer (TSLPatcher.exe), follow the instructions on the screen. UNINSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Delete loadscreens.2da (if you didn't already have the file in your Override folder before installing this mod) and all of the .tga files that start with "load_". COMMENTS: This mod was inspired by Nur Ab Sal's Concept Art Loading Screens that was released a while ago. Because that mod is no longer available, I have decided to make a similar mod. However, Darth InSidious beat me to it and released a similar mod before I could finish up my own (yeah, I'm slow modder). Since my mod replaces all of the loading screenshots, I thought it would be worth releasing; but that's up to you to decide. BUGS: None that I aware of. It's just a simple loading screen replacement mod, so there shouldn't be any. This mod should also be compatible with TSLRP (since it uses the TSL Patcher) once released. PERMISSIONS: As long as you give me proper credit, you may do whatever you wish with this mod.
