TSL Restoration Project: The Phantom Deadline, READ FIRST POST BEFORE POSTING.

Recommended Posts

Part 1

 

The old topic was bigger than a rancor and just as deadly - don't ask me how, I'm not a scientist. Here's a new one, complete with questions so that ya'll don't need to ask them daily just in case the answer has changed.

 

Look, it's our website!

 

Much is repeated from our official FAQ.

 

 

Q: Do I have to read this thread's FAQ before posting? Because I'm sure I can post something that isn't covered in it.

A: Yes.

 

 

Q: When will this mod be done?

A: We don't have a projected time of completion yet. However, rest assured that we will keep you updated on our progress. You can check our Work In Progress page for details on what we're currently up to. What we're up to, module-related. We're not giving details on what we do every single hour of the day, and seriously, quit talking about your pet moths, it's creepy.

 

 

Q: I see a build version listed on the website. Where can I download it?

A: We haven't released a public version of the mod yet. This number serves to help track our progress - we have one beta tester who is working with us right now. The downloadable version will be announced when finished.

 

 

Q: Will you add ____ ?!

A: Our focus is on restoring the missing content that Obsidian Entertainment originally intended for the game. We will add content as we see necessary to make the plot work, but we are not adding random new sub-plots.

We will be revealing more details about our restoration efforts in future progress reports, but if you would like to know whether or not we already have plans to work on a specific restoration, feel free to ask us in our forums.

 

 

Q: Yeah, but will you add difficulty tweaks? Or new items?

A: No.

 

 

Q: Are you fixing game bugs?

A: We have found and fixed a few dialogue and scripting related bugs. Check it out. The "tweaks" will not be included in the mod, but the bug fixes will.

 

 

Q: Will your mod work with existing savegames?

A: Probably. We recommend starting over totally or, at the latest, before leaving Peragus just to avoid any potential weirdness. Even if your saved game from later doesn't end up buggy, you're going to miss additional content - the earliest of it appears quite soon after Peragus explodes.

 

Really, just start over. Maybe we put in an easter egg with Sion playing with kittens and you'll never see it if you don't start a new game.

 

 

Q: I have the XBox version of the game and a (legally) modded XBox - will your mod work on it?

A: At this point we're unsure. There are reports that new model files (.mdl's) - which the mod will likely contain - do not work on the XBox. After our work is completed we may look into creating a more fully compatible version for the XBox.

 

 

Q: Are you working on the Droid Planet?

A: No, we are not currently working on restoring M4-78, the Droid Planet. The only material that exists for it is basically an outline and a couple of possibly incomplete voiceover sets. Storylining, scripting, writing dialogue and recording sounds for an entire planet, as well as working it into the plot of the rest of the game is beyond the scope of the project at the moment.

 

Oh, but hey, you might want to check out the group that IS working on M4-78.

 

 

Q: How can I help? Can I join the team?

A: At this time, we don't need any additional help. If we have any future needs, we'll make an announcement. Thanks for the interest. But seriously, moths.

 

 

Q: Pleaaaaaaaaase can I help?

A: Okay, okay. We're looking for beta testers. Check out the long list of requirements here. In short:

BE: Literate. Articulate. Able to take screenshots. Uh... having lots of free time.

DON'T BE: A jerk.

 

 

Q: I feel like bashing LucasArts. This is the right thread for it, right?

A: No.

 

 

Q: I'm looking forward to your mod still.

A: Thanks!

Hmmm It was pretty long but why now?

 

Another thing, can someone remind me why this topic isn't sticky anymore?


"I tried the most potent Noise Amplification spell once upon a time. Mavellous spell. I could hear the birds speaking to one another in trees over the horizon, I could hear the rustlings as the clouds rubbed against each other in the sky. I could hear the sound a rainbow makes as it arches it's back over the world. Then a dog barked behind me and I burst my left eardrum."

There's a general policy of trying to have as few stickies as possible. They can be annoying for people with low screen resolutions who have to scroll down through lists of stickies to get to the posts. This thread is so popular it hardly ever falls off the first page anyway, so no need.

And if LA announces KotOR III will never be made shortly after TSLRP is shut down, is it reasonable to assume that what happened to Alderaan in A New Hope would happen to LA HQ?

More RL stuff to deal with and less time to give up for a hobby?

 

On the plus side, I can almost smell this now. I shall soon re-install a fresh copy of KotOR II!

Because it depends on how long it takes to alter things. Some alterations, such as editing a printed line of diolog, could take only 30 minutes. Others require that someone plays through the relivant section of the game and attempts to reproduce the bug, then they have to work out exactly where the problem is, then work out how to solve it (if they can) then they have to replay the section to make sure they haven't introduced a new bug. This is assuming its only one person working alone, and that they don't double check anything with someone else.

 

In otherwords it can take a day or more to solve a single fairly simple problem, assuming they don't sleep, eat, go to the toilet or have another life.
