KotOR2 Patch

Recommended Posts

Wow, this is simply underwhelming. :-

 

More than 2 months have passed, and neither Obsidian nor LucasArts have found the time to fix the broken, poor in-game music.

 

Even the music composer himself lobbied both companies to fix his butchered work in an official patch, and had high hopes for it. It's no surprise that he was less than enthusiastic about how his music was bugged in the final game.

 

And the patch does nothing to rectify this? Way to go!

Wow, this is simply underwhelming. :p

Actually as previously stated, the music and movies were too big to include in this patch and will be released in a second patch in a few days.

Well, that is great news then! Just a bit confusing, since none of this was stated either in the patch readme, nor at the top of this thread (where it should have been, since this is the official patch announcement after all, and also "sticky").

 

I didn't bother reading any user posts about the patch, so that "previous" statement was a bit misplaced, and I totally missed it.

 

Sorry for criticising something that has been (or will be, rather) amended. I wouldn't want to add negativity to where it's undeserved!

 

In fact, I couldn't be any happier about this. Thank you Obsidian/LA for listening and caring!

 

On a personal note:

 

This project to restore the original music myself (or raise awareness enough to have it restored by LA) was quite time-consuming. I'm glad I can finally put it to rest.

 

I'm glad that finally everyone will be able to experience KotOR II the way Mark Griskey has always intended it to be enjoyed -- and worked so hard for.

 

It's fulfilling to see that none of this was in vain. Thank you. :rolleyes:

Not to doubt any of your esteemed words, but can anyone provide a link to any sort of official announcement about another music/movie improving patch? I'm really interested, just trying to keep up on the latest. Thanks.

Yeah!

I sense the Force in you, Obsidian and LA. I just opened my Firefox, wanted to check the AHL results, but I thought: "maybe I will check if the patch is released, as everyday I do". The second thought was: "You want the impossible". But I opened obsidianent.com and I see... "Patch RELEASED"! Yeeehah!

Then I checked the bug fix list. Some of the broken quests are fixed (that's good, despite I've never saw any broken quest while playing the game once :D ), but they've done nothing about the music. Uhm... That's not good at all.

Now I read this topic and I can't believe my eyes! The major bugs are now fixed and in the next few days I will download a patch fixing the music and the movies! Am I still sleeping? Isn't it just a [too] beautiful dream?

There is nothing better than reading such good news in the morning! I'll download the patch now, then wait this "few days" and than start playin' the real KOTOR II!

BTW: I wasn't really interested about a content patch. :rolleyes: I like the ending the the whole game as it is. Of course I will be happy if the content patch is out, but simply I'm satisfied with the quests fixed and, than, the music & the movies.

 

May the Force be with you, O&LA! >_<

Now all you have to do is add the Droid factory back in and finish the rest of the game.

They're fixing the music and movies, awesome! ...but... it doesn't say the next few days anywhere, it says TBD, which seems like it could, potentially, be rather a while. Still, the reason they give makes it sound like it couldn't be too far off... hmmm
