Who wants to play some KOTOR II? I know a lot of our readers are big KOTOR fans like myself and I am excited to tell you about this really cool project that’s on the way soon – a mobile KOTOR II port, fan-made, already in Alpha and releasing soon.
How does it work?
Here are details from the project summary:
This project is meant to attempt to port all content from Star Wars: KOTOR II TSL into Star Wars KOTOR 1 Mobile (for Android / IOS), resulting into a partially / fully playable mobile version of KOTOR II TSL for IOS / Android.
The game will be installed and ran as a Total Conversion Mod over the mobile KOTOR 1 version.
The mod development will consist in the following stages:
– 1. Converting all files from the PC version of KOTOR II, to work with the older KOTOR 1 engine.
– 2. Adapting these files to be installed as a mod (into the Override folder, etc.) for KOTOR 1
– 3. Downgrading / adapting features from KOTOR II that are inexisting in KOTOR 1 (like Crafting, Lightsaber Forms, Companion Training and Loyalty, etc.)
– 3. Adapting and optimising the mod to work on IOS / Android KOTOR 1.
– 4. Testing, Optimising, Polishing
It is a fan-built, open-source project and anyone who is interested in participating and making it better is allowed to. Per their website:
“The mod / port will be released here as it is being worked on, and updated as it is progressed on! This endevour will be completly open and collaborative, all work will be uploaded from the start and updated as it progresses!
The development of the mod will be completly open and all content will be released to the public as it gets created! This is our vision, we call it the open-development concept!
Everyone who believes they can contribute or help with this project in any way are invited to!”
