Description:
------------
KotOR Savegame Editor is a Perl/Tk application used in the editing of
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic savegame files. The following
fields are currently editable:
- Savegame name
- Player name
- NPC Name
- Appearance (player and party)
- Portrait (player and party)
- Attributes
- Skill Ranks
- Feats (add/remove)**
- Powers (add/remove)**
- Cheats Used flag
- Hit Points (current and max*)
- Force Points (current and max*)
- Experience Points (player and party)
- Good/Evil rating
- Credits
- Time played
- Class (see notes below)**
- Levels
- Current Party
- NPCs
- Global Booleans
- Global Numerics
- Gender
- Min1HP
- Inventory**
- Influence (TSL only)
- Chemicals (TSL only)
- Components (TSL only)
- Quests
*=Note: Max Hit Points and Max Force Points, while editable appear to be calcula
ted
at the time the savegame is loaded. Therefore while these fields are editable,
the
game will change the values back to what it calculates as correct. It is theref
ore
better to change your Wis/Cha and Con to affect your MFP and MHP.
** Not supported on Xbox Saves, will cause "Damaged Savegame" message.
-----------------
Before Using KSE
-----------------
Before using KSE, it recommended that you make a backup of your 'saves'
directory, just in case.
For KotOR1, it is also recommended that you download the KSE Fixed Cutscene File
s
and place them into your override folder.
Available at http://www.pcgamemods.com -- at time

---------------
Intro to KSE
---------------
KSE is a stand-alone executable that can be located anywhere on your
hard drive. Upon launch, it attempts to locate the KotOR and TSL installation
directories based upon its registry entry. If an installation directory is
not located in this manner, a BrowseForFolder dialog is displayed and KSE will
look for the presence of swkotor.exe (for KotOR1) or swkotor2.exe (for KotOR2)
in that directory. Savegames are assumed to be in a folder called 'saves' under
the installation directory. Each savegame file ('savegame.sav') is assumed to
be in its own subfolder along with 'partytable.res', 'savenfo.res', and
'GLOBALVARS.res' files. These assumptions are all based upon a normal
installation, so if you haven't moved files around you're fine.
------------------------------------------------
Manually specifying the game installation path
------------------------------------------------
You can manually specify the installation path for KotOR or TSL by right clickin
g
the node that says "Knights of the Old Republic" or "The Sith Lords". A popup
menu will appear next to your cursor. Choose 'Change Installation Path' and you
will be prompted to browse for the installation folder. The tree will be update
d
automatically if savegames are found. Note that KSE expects the following files
and
file structure:
\chitin.key
\dialog.tlk
\dataxbox\2da.bif (or \data\2da.bif for PC versions)
\dataxbox\templates.bif (or \data\templates.bif for PC versions)
\saves\(various save folders)\savegame.sav
\saves\(various save folders)\savenfo.res
\saves\(various save folders)\globalvars.res
\saves\(various save folders)\partytable.res
\override\(.2da files or .uti files) [OPTIONAL]
-------------------------------
Note for Xbox users: Sig files
-------------------------------
Sig files are signatures that tell the Xbox that the savegame is legitimate. The
re are
7 .sig files that are required for a legitimate Xbox savegame:
SAVE_PARTY.sig
SAVE_VARS.sig
SAVE_INFO.sig
screen.sig
SAVE_HEADERVAR.sig
SAVE_DATA.sig
SAVE_HEADER.sig
KSE can create the first 6 of them. The SAVE_HEADER.sig cannot be recreated by K
SE at
this time. Therefore Xbox users will need to preserve their original SAVE_HEADE
R.sig
and cross their fingers that it their KSE-edited game will accept that .sig file
.
KsE began generating .sig files automatically as of v2.2.0. As of v3.3.2, KSE w
ill
now only generate .sig files if a .sig file exists in your \saves\(whatever) dir
ectory.
If you haven't copied over the .sig files from your Xbox with savegame.sav file,
you
can create a dummy file with a .sig extension in that savegame folder and that w
ill be
enough for KSE to know that you want to generate .sig files when you edit your g
ame.
-------------
Using KSE
-------------
Upon detection of the above folder/files, KSE will layout each savegame in
a treeview window. Click on the [+] and [-] buttons to open/close. When
selecting a savegame for the first time, there is a couple seconds of
delay as the file information is loaded into memory, so don't panic.
Highlighting different items in the treeview will bring up editing options
in the pane to the right of the treeview window.
In the editing pane, there are will usually be two buttons at the
bottom labeled as 'Apply' and 'Commit Changes'. The Apply button will
update the treeview and apply changes in memory. Commit Changes will
write the changes in memory to the actual files. Most changes require the
savegame.sav file to be re-written which takes a little while. You will
receive a message indicating success in editing the savegame. Note: you don't
have to Commit Changes until you're done Applying changes to memory; however,
if you are editing multiple savegames, you will need to Commit Changes for
each savegame.
Feats and powers have a different appearance in the editing pane. If
the 'Feats' group or 'Force Powers' group is selected, the editing pane
will contain a listbox of all available Feats or Powers to choose from.
Instead of an Apply button, there is an 'Add Feat' or 'Add Power' button.
If you already have the feat/power, this button does nothing. If not, the
treeview will be updated and the changes will be Applied to memory.
If a particular feat/power is selected from the treeview, you will have the
option to Remove it using the editing pane. There's no need to edit
feats/powers -- you have to Remove the old one and Add the new one.
---------------------------------------------
Override Folder: Subdirectories NOT supported
---------------------------------------------
Although TSL supports subdirectories in the Override folder, KSE does not. Too
often,
there are two or more files that are named the same and KSE would have to make s
ome
arbritrary decision as to which one to use. Inevitably this will generate bug r
eports
because the end-user expected the other file to be used by KSE. So to save us b
oth that
grief, if you wish to add custom items to your inventory or use some custom 2da
file,
you will need to make sure that you copy those custom files into your override r
oot folder,
perform your KSE edits, then remove them. (Note that KotOR also does not recogn
ize
subdirectories.)
-----------------------------
Notes About Feats and Powers
-----------------------------
As of version 1.0.2, a checkbox has been added which allows you to turn on and
off the 'extra' feats and powers that aren't normally accessible during level
ups. These are for experimentation and modding purposes. Please don't email me
if you crash the game after adding one of these weird feats/powers. However, if
you discover a use for one, please post your finding to an appropriate forum so
others may learn from your tweaking.
-------------------------
Reminder: No Safety Net!
-------------------------
It should be noted that there isn't much in the way of safety nets built
into this program. You can attempt for example to specify a negative
number of experience points or apply other crazy settings which KotOR may
or may not understand. I guess that's half the fun, but consider yourself
warned. If you're really attached to your savegame, MAKE A BACKUP FIRST.
-----------------------------------------------
Notes regarding Class-changing/Adding/Removing
-----------------------------------------------
As of version 0.4.0a, KSE provides the ability to change a character class. This

makes for very interesting possiblities, including playing as a Droid or as a


non-Jedi class combination. It also allows the player to change their initial
class into a Jedi class. There are a couple things to consider when changing
classes:
- In TSL, don't choose the "Bounty Hunter (CUT!)" class unless you're
asking for trouble
- Do not make a multi-classed character the same class in both classes.
KotOR doesn't seem to like that.
- Before changing your class into a droid, you may want to unequip all
items first. I've had the game hang during loading when I didn't do this.
- The droid classes grant you Feats like Logic Upgrade but you won't see
the icon for them in your Feats screen. Also, KotOR doesn't let you equip droid
armor/weapons/implants. That's too bad. :-(
- (For KotOR1) If you make your early single-class character a Jedi class, you
'll
probably also want to grant him/her the Feat: Force Sensitive to give you an
extra 40 points, otherwise you won't be able to do much in the way of force
powers until you level up. Also, you won't be able to get any Force Points
until you level up once.
As of version 1.3.0, KSE allows you to add and remove classes to your PC and
NPCs. It is known that the games won't recognize more than 2
classes. I wouldn't recommend removing all
your classes either. Then you'd just be a couch potato and you don't need a
game for that. :-)

--------------------------------
Notes regarding changing levels
--------------------------------
As of version 1.0.5, you now have the ability to directly change your PC and NPC
class levels. Adding additional levels will affect your Hit Points and your Max
Hit Points and maybe some other secondary attributes. The amount of experience
points needed to further level up will also increase accordingly. You can level
up past level cap (20 for KotOR, 50 for TSL), though it doesn't do much in terms
of gameplay.
Leveling down will subtract previously gained powers/feats/skills and maybe
attributes that you received from leveling up. The game stores all the
information about what level you were when you gained your abilities. So if you
level down, it forgets you had those abilities.
For the normal player, I can't think of much use for changing your level. For
modders, changing levels may hold more importance.

Known Bugs
===============
Inventory Hiccup
------------------
If an item is added to your inventory and it has the same Tag as another item, K
SE
will generate an error.
Getting Stuck During Vision Sequence (KotOR1)
--------------------------------------
Symptom: After leaving the Endar Spire or Leaving Taris, you run into a sequence
where you should be seeing a "dream" cutscene but instead you're locked up in a
room with a "CutStart" object that doesn't do anything.
Cause: You have NOT placed the modified .dlg files into your override directory
and you have changed your character to a Jedi/Minion/Droid class or you have
changed your Gender to something other than Male or Female.
Fix: Download the KSE Fixed Cutscene Files (available from http://www.pcgamemods
.com/8800 )
and place the .dlg files into your Override folder.
After changing appearance to look like (an NPC), the real NPC has no head!
---------------------------------------------------------------
Symptom: You change appearance to look like one of your party NPCs and all is we
ll
until you attempt to enter a new area with that NPC. Then the NPC loses its hea
d!
Cause: SW:KotOR doesn't like two unique characters appearing together.
Fix: From T7Nowhere's post on Holowan Labs--
I know how to fix the head problem, but it will take a bit of work.
The thing about it. Bioware set it up so that you can't encounter an npc with yo
ur
head, so in appearance.2da there is a normalhead and backup head columns.
SO in order for and npc not to loose there head that npc would need an backup he
ad.
As Juhani is a unique npc she doen not have a backup and when you transition fro
m
one area to another the game checks appearance.2da(I suspect) and sinse your
character comes first the game will give you juhani's head and she looses hers.
There is a way to remedy this and it is simple open up appearance.2da with KT (i
f
you have that file in override then open that appeance.2da) go to row 8 which is
Party_NPC_Juhani and scroll ove until you see columns "normalhead" & "backuphead
"
and simple type 5 in the backuphead column save the file back to override. And n
ow
you and Juhani can be twins. if you would like juhani to have a different head w
hen
you take hers then simply open heads.2da to find an appropriate female head (or
male. what ever make you happy) and type that number in the backuphead column an
d
save appearance to override.
Don't worry this is very simple to do.
