Better Saber Sounds (2.0) - File Description  


Description:
W4rbird decided that he needed to update his previous Better Saber Sound mod. In this one, he found new sounds to use for the lightsabers. I really loved his on and off sounds. The shut off one was my favorite. The on one is from the Sith lightsaber (always been a big fan of that type of sound), very similar to the one I use for my sound mod. There were a couple of swing sounds I liked, but others that sounded too flat (not very strong sounding) for my taste. But everybody has their preference. I do like the sound of the clash sounds, but I don’t think they go well with the KOTOR games. Only because at times you hear the long clash sound while the sabers are in motion and at times when the saber hits the opponent when I test ‘em out. The author also sent alternate saber sounds to play with if you have decided you have become bored with some of ‘em. It’s always nice to have options I always say because everybody has their own personal preference and it’s nice to have that type of variety. big grin

Sounds simple enough right? It doesn’t end with the saber sounds. The author also thought that the frag and plasma grenade sounds should have new sounds to it to be more appealing. Listening to ‘em was a treat I tell ya. Talk about a major explosion sound in each of ‘em. I really like ‘em. Definitely worth the download for those explosion sounds.

I suppose the melee weapon sounds were too troublesome, so he got rid of those for this 2.0 version for those who didn’t like ‘em in the first place. He also adds new computer beep sounds, buzzes, and alert sounds. Now some of the alert sounds sounded very closely similar to the original game to tell a difference from my end, but others maybe able to tell a difference.

Overall, it was a great sound mod. Definitely worth checking out to see if there are any sounds you want to add to your override folder.

Note: This works for both KOTOR and TSL

===============================================================
A KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC (AND II: THE SITH LORDS) MODIFICATION
===============================================================

AUTHOR: W4rbird
EMAIL: warbird1@interia.pl
NAME: Better Saber Sounds v2
CREDITS: Lucasfilm Ltd., LucasArts, Raven Software, frag grenade sound - freely available on the Net, plasma grenade sound - my own (http://jediknight2.filefront.com/file/Pyrom4ni4c_Detpack;55854), 'as_el_alert.wav', 'cb_pa_unarm1.wav' and 'as_el_compsnd_01.wav' - I also found them on the Net - it were freely available too (sound library).

FILENAME: better_saber_sounds_v2.zip
FILE SIZE: 2,81 MB
DATE RELEASED: 30th June 2006

DESCRIPTION: Ok, it's v2 of my previous mod. Sounds are different now (better ones, I think :)), mostly from Ep V (saber sounds), but not only from that movie. Troublesome sounds of melee weapons (metal swords) have been removed. I also changed few 'alert' sounds and computer beeps and buzzes plus changed two 'unarmed' sounds (one when npc is going to be unarmed and second when punching you - mostly Duros', also this sound sounds funny ;)). Also frag and plasma grenades sounds have been changed. I provided some alternative sounds when you decide this ones bores you, this includes: 3 long saber swings and 1 short, 1 saber hum, 2 saber hard hits, 1 saber clash and 1 saber block, which is the most important in my opinion. Ah, this mod works for both games, obviously.
Enjoy!

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Simple copy whole folder named 'override' into your KotOR I or II main directory. Answer 'yes' when overwriting. You can also unpack files directly into your 'override' folder. If you miss it, create one. Sounds from 'alternates' also unpack into 'override' if you like. Always answer 'yes' when overwriting. That's it.
