Darth Payne, Star Admiral, and canderis bring us a very exciting mod, which is an expanded version of a mod originally done by Maverick187. The mod allows you to train (well fight :p) the other Jedi at the academy, and they are levelled so they get progressively harder as you fight; Vandar is of course the hardest! You access the training room from the computer console near the council and where you have to learn the Jedi Code. This is a very well done mod, and makes use of TSLpatcher for easy installation. Be sure to read the readme, as there are lots of helpful tips in there.
Things to be aware of; "As you do get a chance to fight Master Vandar in this mod, it is suggested that you download and install the excellent Yoda Saber mod by oldflash. It modifies the lightsaber model so that it actually fits in Master Vandar’s hands like it is supposed to. It is not required but recommended to get the most fun out of using this mod."
I think this is it; Yoda Saber mod
Secondly a couple of bugs "We are not sure how this came about, but whenever the player uses Stun/Stun Droid on the Droids and Padawans, the next attack results in an instant death for them. Hopefully version 3 of this mod will correct this issue."
All in all this is an excellent mod, and a wonderful addition to the community!
Enjoy -- Jonathan7

Jedi Training Arena Module Version 1 By: Maverick187 Version 2 Expansion By: Darth Payne, Star Admiral and canderis. INTRO: The original mod was done by Maverick187; this expanded version was completed by Darth Payne, Star Admiral, and canderis. For more info, please read the original ReadMe included with this mod. INSTALLATION: This mod uses the TSLPatcher for easy installation. IMPORTANT! Before running the executable, make sure that your Modules folder inside your main KOTOR directory, usually at C:Program FilesLucasArtsSWKOTOR, is NOT set to Read-Only. To check, right-click on the folder and see if the Read-Only checkbox is checked. If it is, un-check it and hit Apply and then hit OK when asked if you wish to apply this change to all files and folders within the Modules folder. Now you can run the executable to install the mod. It will modify and/or replace any conflicting files in your Override/Modules folder and save the original files inside the backup folder. DE-INSTALLATION: To uninstall this mod, delete dan13_tutorial.dlg, dp_return.utw, and dp_warp_train.ncs from your Override folder and restore the relevant backup files from inside the backup folder to your Override folder. Do the same for the Modules folder, except delete dp_arena.mod and danm13.rim. COMPATIBILITY ISSUES: If this mod is installed using the TSLPatcher, it should be compatible with any other mod that does not also modify the dialog file for the training computer located in the Jedi Enclave. In the event that there is a conflict with a popular mod, contact us and we’ll see if we can release a patch to make ours compatible. FEATURES: Fight several different enemies; there are a few different groups that get progressively more difficult. Earn extra XP for defeating various opponents. Make use of the healing feature between fights to save on MedPacs. SUGGESTION: As you do get a chance to fight Master Vandar in this mod, it is suggested that you download and install the excellent Yoda Saber mod by oldflash. It modifies the lightsaber model so that it actually fits in Master Vandar’s hands like it is supposed to. It is not required but recommended to get the most fun out of using this mod. BUGS: We are not sure how this came about, but whenever the player uses Stun/Stun Droid on the Droids and Padawans, the next attack results in an instant death for them. Hopefully version 3 of this mod will correct this issue. HOW TO OPERATE: Due to the fact that the this mod makes use of a specific part of a larger module, the only way to get to the trainer is via the computer in the Jedi Training Room in the Jedi Enclave on Dantooine. One of the options warps you to a specific point in the module and there is a computer there to spawn your fellow trainees. As a result, you CANNOT simply type "warp dp_arena" into the console because it will take you to the wrong part of the module and you won't be able to do anything. WARNINGS: The Droids, Padawans, and Knights you can fight as soon as you get to Dantooine. It is HIGHLY reccomended that you not even try the Jedi Masters, the Jedi Council, or Vandar until much later. This mod does do an Autosave before the fight starts, so if you choose a level that is much too difficult to finish, reload the Autosave to avoid the fight. Things start out very easy, but they get progressively harder. The harder groups are very difficult as they are meant to be. If you find that Master Vandar is next to impossible to beat, then good that is how he/she was meant to be. If you don't think it is challenging enough, try it with a HARDCORE mod. It is a load of fun. PERMISSION: If you would like to use this mod as a basis for one of your own, that is perfectly fine. As long as you ask for permission first, and give credit where credit is due. You must also include Maverick187s readme in your mod if you use this one or Maverick187s original Beta version.
