Remember in the original Knights of the Old Republic game, when you’re stuck on Taris and you do the Dueling Ring quest and when you defeat Twitch to become champion, you have an opportunity to challenge Bendak Starkiller in a Death Match? Well, what is that side quest got shaken up a little?
I’m happy to say that Ulic is back with another mod. He created the Prologue - Peragus - Harbinger Correction Mod back in April and updated it in May. If you’re already familiar with what he’s capable of, you will be happy to see the work that was put into this mod.
You may have noticed when you go into the dueling ring to fight Bendak, you automatically get dark side points? What if you didn’t get dark side points right away, but only if you choose to finish him off? In this new mod, you get a chance to spare him and turn him over to the local authorities, which is a light side ending and you get to fight Bendak to do it. Pretty clever idea if you ask me.
This mod does have new dialogue options in it. Granted the grammar does need some work, but so does the Ultimate Saber Mod, and that has 30,000 to 40,000 downloads (if you don’t just count this site’s total), so it’s not the end of the world. You can always learn to use the dialogue editor and make the necessary corrections. The mod does use the TSL Patcher for easy installation and a updated to the globalcat.2da file. Enjoy the new mod! :D

======================================================== A KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC MODIFICATION Bendak's LS Demise ======================================================== Author: Ulic Email: [email protected] Name: Bendak Bounty Rework Filename: Bendak_Bounty_Rework.rar File Size: 4.10 MB (1.26 MB Archived) Date Released: July 17, 2007 1. Description: ---------- This is a small mod which alters the Bendak's Bounty quest received on Taris. It allows the quest to be completed by following a light sided, neutral, or dark sided path as opposed to the dark side only way of accomplishing it in the release version of the game. This mod is for the English version of the game only. A few new lines have been added for Bendak and Ajuur. These lines have voice-overs compiled by editing the available recorded dialogs. 2. Install: ---------- 1) Extract the "Bendak's LS Demise" 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 SWKotOR folder hierarchy). Also note that simply copying the files within "tslpatchdata" to your "Override" folder will not properly install the mod. 2) Double click the "Setup - RUN THIS TO INSTALL.exe" file to begin installation of the mod. 3) Once installed simply start a new game or load a save before any of the arena has been completed. Note a new folder named "backup" may 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 added or modified during the installation of this mod: Within "C:\Program Files\LucasArts\SWKotOR\streamwaves\m02ae\bend03" NM02AEBEND03050_.wav NM02AEBEND03051_.wav Within "C:\Program Files\LucasArts\SWKotOR\Overide" globalcat.2da.d2a tar02_bendak021.dlg tar02_duelorg021.dlg k_ptar_benbouta.ncs k_ptar_benbouta1.ncs k_ptar_bendak_sp.ncs k_ptar_bendak_ud.ncs k_ptar_benduelfi.ncs k_ptar_duel06ds.ncs k_ptar_duel06ls.ncs k_ptar_duel06xax.ncs 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 the folders listed above and delete the files under each heading. For example 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 if a folder named "backup" was created during installation open it 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. New Additions: ---------- A few new dialog choices and responses have been added when speaking with Bendak and Ajuur. In order to complete the quest light sided or dark sided you need to pick the appropriate dialog options. Ultimately this will end in a brief dialog during the arena battle with Bendak where you are faced with a final dialog choice which will determine the light or dark points reward. If you wish to complete this quest and receive no alignment bonus you must avoid these new dialog options. 5. Bugs: ---------- There are no known issues that will develop as a result of installing this mod. 6.
