I am please to review a mod...err... launcher by Inyri Forge. Inyri is a network admin on the FileFront network and in the past has been active with making mods for the Knights of the Old Republic games. Due to her personal life getting more busy, she hasn’t had the time to make Knights of the Old Republic mods like she used to, so it’s really great when she does actually gets to make the time to do a mod.
It’s been a while since I have reviewed a launcher and I was never one that was huge on them. I personally never use the launcher. I just open my game without going through the launcher. I find it faster to get where I want to. Well, not everybody is like that and many do use it and love seeing new styles of it. This is actually a cool launcher that the author made.
What this launcher does is focus on Darth Revan and Darth Malak. You can a picture of them in a duel when you launch your game. What’s really neat is the new sounds you get with the launcher. When you open the launcher, you hear the Sith Battle Theme song and Malak quoting a scene; “You are strong child, but I will break you.” Then you hear his trademark laugh after that. Anytime you hit any of the launcher buttons, you hear the Malak laugh, a very nice tribute to the Dark Lord. This mod also breaks a string of 13 strait TSL mods. Enjoy the new launcher! :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 *********************************** TITLE: Malak's Revenge Launcher AUTHOR: Inyri Forge E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org FILENAME: revmal_launcher_if.zip DATE RELEASED: 08 August 2007 BUILD TIME: A Few Hours -------- CREDITS -------- Bioware, for providing the models I worked with. Special thanks to Emperor Devon for some module assistance which helped immensely in obtaining the backdrop shots. -------------------------- INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS -------------------------- First of all, backup your entire launcher folder. The easiest way to do this is to make a new folder within the launcher folder called "backup" or something similar, and copy all the files from the launcher folder into it. Next, put all the contents of the launcher folder in this zip into your SWKotOR/launcher directory, or simply place the folder in your SWKotOR directory (this will have the same effect). This will overwrite what is already there, which is why I suggest you backup first. ------------ DESCRIPTION ------------ It's a launcher, using custom-posed KotOR models. It's been a while since I've done a launcher, and I love the artistic-ness of it. Someone mentioned a while ago that they'd like to see some kind of launcher focused on Revan and Malak, and so this gem came to mind. The gem being the situation, not the launcher... I'm not that full of myself. :p This launcher features custom-posed Revan and Malak models, rendered in 3DS Max, with a background screenshot of the chamber in the Star Forge where you duel Malak. It includes two separate renders: the main launcher, which is Revan and Malak, and the loader image, which is just Malak. Because let's face it -- Malak is cooler looking than Revan. Although we all know who would (and did) win. ----- BUGS ----- None, I hope. ------------------- DISTRIBUTION NOTES ------------------- You may use this modification in mods as long as this read-me is included in your archive, unaltered, and appropriate credit is given.
