Game Mods,game modding,and cut content

Game mods are fan made modifications to a PC game or ROM/ISO of a console game that alter your game that can range from different textures,new weapons or items or entirely new areas.

Modding is the act of modifying a PC game or ROM/ISO of a console game.

How does DU feel about mods? I love mods personally.

Know what my favorite type of mod is?

That's right! Restoration of cut content which at times can be toughest sort of mod to create.

I ZM90 am what you call a "beta restorer",to put it plainly I modify games to restore beta/cut content.

I strongly believe in the preservation of gaming history and one crucial way to preserve gaming history I believe that can be used other than the leaking of prototypes on the internet is to mod games restoring cut content.

I am currently working on a project to restore the cut content within Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. The project is on hiatus until Jan. 2 though due to college and spending time with my family for the holidays.

I love all beta content,and I believe it is a important part of gaming history.

How does DU feel about beta content and the restoration of it?

1. I would like to see KOTOR II content mod come out

I also very much like the Morrowind Sound and Graphic Overhaul mod project. Mod content for games such as Neverwinter Nights I&II increases the playability and therefore the value of those games.

So I am in favor, yes.

2. KotOR2 has a cut content restoration mod that has been out since last year it's called

The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod or TSLRCM. The latest version of TSLRCM is 1.7. You can actually find info about my KotOR1 Restoration on the same site as well. The site is www.deadlystream.com

4. It's not like they stopped selling KotOR2 though so next time you get the chance you

could easily get a copy I've seen them being sold new,plus you could always get a copy online if walking into a store doesn't work. It shouldn't be too expensive,at least I hope not. With the restored content mod though TSL goes from being a pretty good game to a amazing game. Basically I give the original TSL 8/10 and I give the restored TSL 10/10.

6. Awesome! Have fun! I know I did.

By the way if you have the PC version of KotOR1 or if you get ahold of it then you should look into my KotOR1 restoration. I think you would enjoy it when it comes out.

7. will keep this in mind

Thankyou, as I recently got it off of steam. BTW any tips on getting KOTORII running in Windows 7? With KOTORI I set the core affinity to 1 and v-sync to on and have no problems, any like settings for TSL?

8. I'm afraid not

You might check over at Deadly Stream though they could probably help you. You'll have to register to download TSLRCM anyway. Don't worry registration is of course free .

9. I basically refuse to play a game I can't mod these days.

Mods can keep a game fresh for years if done right.
