  1. Thanks Sith happy to have been able to help and hope to go on doing so :)

  2. I am trying to load KoTOR on my main research system, which is an older XP SP3 set up. I have 2 full retail copies of the game one in the DVD case and one is the boxed set of DVDs in a case with the spiral manual both have the same error. When i get to the spot at the end of install where it asks if you want a icon on the desktop for a shortcut and I say yes, it then asks for the Disk 4 which is ALREADY IN the DVD drive had to be to get there. it refuses to acknowledge it and wont complete the install and wipes out all of the files. Is there a fix? is this a SP3 Problem? it is pretty frustrating. the Disks are new and unworn and not damaged at all. i dont want to use the Steam version i want to use the original I am hoping to test the new Update restoration but need to re install the game thanks for any advice.\ UPDATE: I was able to get a playable install by removing the install directory before the installer wiped it, it still refused to accept Disk 4 WAS ALREADY IN the disk drive, ...but since install did not complete the patch wont apply . I am going to see if the Restoration Patch will still complete and work the game looks like it will start here's hoping but that error bug is frustrating and puzzling. I wonder if anyone else who still uses XP knows about it.
  3. I will be updating this thread to allow us all to share and enjoy some of the classic levels and maps that have been created for JKA, with permission of Jae O. as this is an old thread but the content is still I feel very important to keep available for people who love these fine SW titles. Some of these maps are amazing and well deserve to be preserved and shared. I will work to check and update and restore old and outdated links and apologize for my neglect and delay in keeping these current. I will also be able to provide limited assistance for technical support and will try to help when issues may prevent you from easily loading them. See you soon and May the Force Continue to Be With Us All. If you have an immediate need for a level or map, or want information on one I may not have listed here, i maintain a large archive of maps for all of the JK games and will do my best to assist you via PM.
  4. OK i am back again sorry for the delay, life and work took me from the SW work for a while. With the permission of Jae O..i will be updating this thread and restoring or adding new links for the major levels, mods and classic enhancements for this wonderful title here soon. I can also assist with technical problems getting them to run, within reason..and look forward to helping share some of the classic levels that have been created, some equal to and in some cases even surpassing the original content. See you soon and May the Force contineu to with us all.
  5. Hello gentlemen and Yes i had exactly the same error running the original game disks which i use for my research on an XP SP3 machine with a Nvida 9600GT card. the backgrounds are wonderful with 3D Acell turned ON in the game, (before that Manny was spread across the screen in long lines) now he is just like the screen shot above. I will try the fix this poster mentions and I appreciate the fix. What is Residual ? i would welcome other fixes and info. I will not be using the Remastered GOG version as i want to study the original. thanks for any info. i found the old threads but didnt want to revive old threads without cause. thanks. my current set up gave me this: using the DxDiag tool as suggested above all is now well in full screen, wonderful ..i will use this for now.
  6. I was going to warm up a bit before my sub kicks in, and wondered if i can play my main character lvl 52 or am I limited to only the lower levels ? i noted that there is a funds cap on your momey, i have 300,000 and it put extra into an escrow i think, and i cant rest in bars ...i have a boat load of Cartel Coins so i can suppliment with the boosts I guess. just wondered if anyone has a fast answer on what is limited... i thought about starting one of my subs going again, or even starting a new one but suspect we are limited to is it 3 characters and I didnt want to risk losing my main character with all the work i put into it to get to 52 .thanks for any advice.
  7. Hi guys, glad some of us are still "alive" i still reemmber how Lynk made a huge jump in his air car from the top of a crashed crawler all the way into the Baloon gondola and LIVED. it was impressive. UPDATE: made it in, i guess i was on Corellia, doing the missoins there. uh, how do i get the info to reset my Skill Points? they are all returned. a LOT of em . I am a Jedi Guardian class. thanks for advice on that, remember Lynk and Mim you both had a site with good info on what to set.
  8. Well it looks like Lynk and Mim are still here at least. I am going to sneak back in the back door. Hopefully ....got a new better system and maybe it will help. Also did some intense work in another MMO and actually made some progress learning skills, we will see. glad you are ..some of you ..still here.
  9. Hi sorry to have been away for a while i will catch up and check on things

  11. OK< I will put mods that people have asked for here, starting with these: I found these with the very kind and generous help of community members and it is a pleasure to be able to help others enjoy them. Evil Temple Mod Messkell 2004 http://www.gamefront.com/files/23598877/Evil+Temple+Mod+Messkell.zip Shores of Death Mod Messkell 2004 http://www.gamefront.com/files/23598879/Shores+of+Death+1.0+Messkell.zip Slaughter the Council Messkell 2004 http://www.gamefront.com/files/23598901/Slaughter+the+Council+Messkell.zip all files will be shared with original READ ME intact and all restrictions and credits included to be respected at all times. I have a LOT of files to go thru so i will add more as i find them. Hope this helps some.
  12. wow thanks Q, i had seen somone set up an affinity via the short cut on the game exe shortcut so i will try that first but if that does not work i will use your method, thanks so much, almost there then, that is good to know. I will assemble all of this info along with the dll and other files for a Start up pack that includes some of the restorations as a shareable resource. Great to have all the help as i have had to go thru this with many many games to keep them playable with changes in OS. thanks again.
  13. I am no expert but i am afraid your disk may be damaged. You can try to clean it that sometimes works for me but the cycle redudance error happens when a disk (or a Reader) is damaged, worn, dirty or otherwise broken, i dont think it is a technical problem with installing. But others may reply as well.
  14. OK i went back a restore point and now the installer works again, so maybe it will work, will report. I have not installed KoTOR since i got a dual core Up to date XP set up, so had not known there were some problems with the installing and running of the two KoTOR titles. will have to work thru the threads and the fixes here and hopefully they will work. I played both on an older XP machine single core about six or seven years ago. My how times flies. UPDATE: Ok got it installed whew. Fixed the Graphics fix, will enable v Synch if needed, and will add the dll if needed, not sure yet, got all the restorations in and the Basty Romance fix and enhancement and the 15 restorations I have collected. Will try to run it alter on for now, after six re installs time to have lunch. I may make a pack of material for others using XP dual core if can get this working to speed things up..and also will release the restoration pack finally that i started three years ago, or was it four
  15. I start install,with the four disk game of the year set and at the very end, it keeps asking for Disk 4 even tho Disk 4 is sitting right there IN the Drive!!!!!!! I tried the Vista7 set up ini and it gives an error, even after i copied all of teh files into an install folder on my desk top and ran it from there? i would LIKE to use the original game set but will get the steam version if i have to but i really want to try to keep the original game set. the error says "Uninstall had encountered a problem" i tried to install from the disks, but when that did not work i didnt Uninstall using the uninstaller so i think they system thinks it is still there. i will re install and then try to uninstall. any help?
  16. I am looking for it along with some others.. no luck yet but will hope i can find it.
  17. Never a bad idea to back up what you can find, as these resources tend to vanish over time and many have sadly. I will dig and see what i can find. UPDATE: I am still digging, have found a lot but not all of Messkells yet, have a lead will report back soon
  18. I have been away but may have some of the mods requested here frequently, I will go thru my archives as i have collected a lot of the KOTOR mods over the years and report back if i find any solutions that are not over at Deadly Stream.
  19. I will be back soon with updates and new links as there have been some that dropped, as File Front has a new policy that requires constant use or they drop the links. I will also look for mirrors so that none of the classic maps get lost. Do let me know via PM if you need any specific ones that i discuss and I will try to get them to you asap.
  20. I will try to update the links and the info in this thread soon, there continues to be good work being done on SP maps and some of the classics are well worth the effort to install and play. I will be back soon with updates and do let me know of you have trouble finding any of the maps i discuss.
  21. I picked up a flashpoint start on Fleet but now i cant find the starting speaker who is supposedly located on one of the other ships on the Mission Deck in the Science Section but i have looked all over that darn ship about 20 times and found NO Science Section and no start person to talk to. anyone know where the Science Section is? it is a flashpoint about killer bots, and sounds fun. but i did pick another mission at random, Jedi Prisioner and it is a lot of fun.
  22. Hello all, i am returning yet again, will try to get to Level 50 or 55 this time, life and health took me away sorry for the absence. I am updating my install and have renewed my subscirption. here is my info as i recall it, a bit foggy but i think i am at Level 42 now. I was pretty bad at combat before so i spend some time in two other MMPRGs to try to learn some better skills, and I think i have a bit of a better grasp of things. Hope so. Thanks for all the help from generous people, esp Mim! in the past. Applying again for Walking Carpets Character 1: Caern Class: Jedi Knight Guardian Light Side Role: DPS Skillks: Diplomacy, Archaeology, Treasure Hunting Level: 42 do i need to re apply ..and at the other site too? not sure if i still have the linkey i will look. hope everyone who is still here from before is doing ok. may try the Hutt Cartel once i get my feet under me.
  23. yes i was trying to add mods to the augmentation slots but coulnd find where to get that augmentation item that is required...if you try to add a mod say to pants or shooes or belt, you see a pop up saying you need this little thingy and it costs 1000 creds I have the credit but didnt have the thingy and coulndt find it in the shopping mall on couruscant....is there somethere else to get it? i am trying to get any edge i can by upping my protection, i find that the quests are pretty much tailored to be about 25 - 50 percent out of reach of your main character no matter how carefully you upgrade your equipment with what you get from drops and i havent found any gear that is better than what i have for sale...but i will try the Galactic Trade Network, was a bit shy about that. i did have a problem in the Fleet last time i was there, some jerks kept parking their oversized speeders in top of me so i couldnt see anyting and then moving and doing it agian if i moved. I know it was griefing and there are trolls in any game but i had not had this unpleasant experience before. Had hoped to not see it here but i guess it is inevitable.
  24. thanks for the input on equipment and skill Mim and for the tips on PVP , i made the mistake, and paid for it. As for the other player they were enjoying themselves and prob thought i was a whimp because i ran away, and kept trying to run. I guess they got a kick out of killing me anyway. I didnt enjoy it but will be sure to be more careful in the future. So i learned and am not complaining. that is a side of the game i dont play and dont plan to. Like you i like to have fun and explore. thanks for all the help you have given me. I went shopping at Fleet to try to get better gear for my Doctor but there was noting available in the vendors that was even close to as good as what he already has. So i just got someting from the Cartel market instead. I was going to try to add mods to some of my own equipment but the work table kept saying i needed some kind of enhahnacemnt slot to add stuff and i couldnt find it for sale anywhere so skilled that too.
