HardCore 2011 Talchia Style - File Description  

Qui-Gon Glenn is back today with this new modification for the 2003 game of the year, the first Knights of the Old Republic game.

The author has basically modified some of BioWare's original scripts here to make the game a lot more difficult. This has been done before, and this fact has been referenced here by the author. Talchias original Hardcore mod apparently makes the game slightly harder again than Qui-Gon Glenn's version, though this version will still give you a considerable increase in difficulty.

So, if you ever thought Knights of the Old Republic was too easy, this might just be the mod for you!

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.

HardCore 2011 Talchia Style - Readme  
Readme File:
Get HARD CORE BUFF with a single script!

//:: k_def_buff
//:: Copyright (c) 2001 Bioware Corp.
//:: Created By: Preston Watamaniuk
//:: Created On: April 8, 2003
//:: Modded By: Qui-Gon Glenn
//:: Contact: see me at Lucasforums!

Searching for source scripts to things entirely unrelated, I just thought I would look at the standard buff script the game uses for buffing your opponent according to the PC level. In it, I noticed that although it was intended that Jedi get buffs to their Charisma as well as their Dexterity and Wisdom, Charisma had been left out. So, I fixed that, and then thought... well that just made jedi tougher at these levels, why not do the whole thing?

Then I realized that Talchia's famous Hardcore Mod was essentially doing what k_def_buff was doing, but inside of k_ai_master. Although this mod *may not* make things quite as difficult as Talchia's (because Talchia's mod was then buffed again by the standard k_def_buff I am modding), it will still quite noticeably increase difficulty... substantially! You will want your powerful items...

The standard buffs have been increased significantly, and by PC Level 17+ your opponents are uber-buffed, like Hanz and Franz! The bonuses are almost identical to Talchia's, and additionally this mod fixes the un-bonused Charisma bonus that Bioware Corp. intended and noted, yet did not script in.

Enjoy, post any issues you find in the TUCE thread (when it's released) - shouldn't be any!

Disclaimer: Look at the copyright above - I didn't write this script, Preston did. I altered it, cleaned up unnecessary comments, and made it behave as described in PW's dev notes. Therefore, I have no rights to this whatsoever- belongs to GL and LA and BioWare.

Thanks: Fred Tetra, KotOR Tool is still essential!
: Holowan Labs for being a great environment to bang my head against a wall
: Talchia, for inspiring the mod and providing an illuminating ReadMe, albeit no source code
: Fallen Guardian, for beta-testing

Thanks darthvader12345820! it wasn't too much work to do, mostly just changing some values here and there. The hard part was getting to the point where I understood basic NWN script stick out tongue

I hope you try it out... It is not for the faint of heart, or the easily discouraged!

Sounds like you put some effort into this. I will definitely check this out due to the lack of a challenge now when I play KotOR. I also commend you on your subtle SNL reference. Hanz and Franz will always be here to pump *clap and point* us up.

I have submitted a fixed version of this mod, which will make sure that the buffs are applied in all cases it should be. If you want to download and use it, please delete the file k_def_buff from your override.

My apologies to any who have been underwhelmed by the gameplay difference - I promise that the new version is HARDCORE.
