K1 and TSL Difficulty Options - File Description  

Time flies when youíre having fun and letís face it. The Knights of the Old Republic games have been around for a good number of years. The original Knights of the Old Republic is about to have its four year anniversary. Can you believe it? The sequel, Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords is about to have its two and half year anniversary. Those numbers seem big, but yet it doesnít seem that long ago these games were released.

Anyway, as time goes on and we keep playing our Knights of the Old Republic games, it tends to get easier and easier to play. We keep playing them because of the good storylines and being a Jedi or a Sith, using Force Powers, and building a lightsaber is just cool. Sometimes we need new challenges when playing our favorite games, wouldnít you agree?

Darth Shan is back with another mod that gives you the options to increase the game difficulty level for both Knights of the Old Republic games. This mod is meant for advanced users. If youíre new to playing these games as some of you are Iíve noticed, I would make sure youíve learned all the skills you can before trying this mod or youíre going to be very frustrated with it. Hopefully this mod will breath new life into wanting to play them again for those who are bored of it, but lurk around here seeing whatís new. Well, this is new, so give it a shot.

As mentioned in the last paragraph that this is for both Knights of the Old Republic games and there are folders that are labeled which games they belong to, so make sure you install the right files for the right game in order to keep your games functioning properly. Get ready for a new challenge. Enjoy the mod advanced users! big grin

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.

K1 and TSL Difficulty Options - Readme  
Readme File:

AUTHOR: Darth Shan
EMAIL: schenkhaupt@yahoo.com
NAME: K1 and TSL Difficulty Options

FILENAME: difficulty_opt.rar
DATE RELEASED: 3/30/2007

Tired of messing with your config.ini? Some think, correctly, that both KotORs are fairly easy game. Especially when it comes to replaying the games, this may become annoying. But you are ill advised to reset difficulty setting manually in your configuration files. Why? Because 3 (highest in K1) and 4 (highest in TSL) set difficulty to default, i.e. more easy than in ingame difficulty.

This mini-mod brings a solution: Set your difficulty level in-game! All you need is a simple 2da.file.


Drop the corresponding files manually in the folders where they belong.

If you are an elite gamer OR like to use heavily modded Override folders for your Kotor games (my own TSL Override is currently at 909 MB), then you have the option to use the hardcore settings which tweak all levels one step, i.e. easy becomes normal, normal difficult and so on, see below for details.

Regarding compatibilities: the files employ a simple trick, they use dialogue.tlk-lines from the standard tlk.file, to be precise: "Choke" and "Horror" from the Force Powers entries. So compatibility is universal.

COMMENTS: If you try to rebalance your modded Kotor games, this really comes in handy. Boss too strong? Crazy rebalance? Change your options in game, don't leave the Star Wars galaxy.

Here are the stats:

Kotor, normal difficultyopt.2da

[cfg.ini] descr. multiplier
0 Easy 1.00
1 Normal 1.75 (I tweaked this one, default was 1.5)
2 Difficult 2.75
3 Horror 3.50

Kotor, hardcore 2da

[cfg.ini] descr. multiplier
0 Easy 1.50
1 Normal 2.50
2 Difficult 3.50
3 Horror 4.50
(The last should be near to insane.)

TSL, normal 2da

[cfg.ini] descr. multiplier
0 Easy 0.50
1 Normal 1.00
2 Difficult 1.50
3 Choke 2.00
4 Horror 2.50

TSL, hardcore 2da

[cfg.ini] descr. multiplier
0 Easy 1.00
1 Normal 1.50
2 Difficult 2.00
3 Choke 2.50
4 Horror 3.00
(TSL is more bitchy than its predecessor, in some areas 4 is still ridiculous, in others - for instance 804DRO or 152HAR you are going to have a hard time.)

If you still find the game too easy, get Beancounter's Hardcore mod. In conjunction with this mod you should have every opportunity to become one with the Force.

A final remark, if you are a fervent modder, I added one additional line respectively (Choke / Insanity), but you can do nothing with it, setting the difficulty level in the cfg.ini to 4, 5 or higher will mar the AI (yes, that is still possible with Kotor).

My thanks go to Fred Tetra, ingenious master tool creator.

BUGS: None, I hope.

PERMISSIONS: You may use this mod in every way you wish. Don't forget to curse me when you die on Peragus.

Aren't these difficulty mods getting done repeatedly under different titles? New portraits and difficulty mods seem to showing up frequently these days....

I encountered some problems with using other hardcore mods - they seemed to have little or no effect. My intention with this mod was mainly to make it possible that you alter difficulty level while being in-game.
Think of Ord Mantell or the Jawa Shop mod in K1 - some of the enemies were incvincible when employing a hardcore mod like that Talchia has created.
By the way - wha difficulty mod would you recommend?
