1. What is this?
This is a remake of a mod made by Stoffe for the original TSL, made compatible for TSLRCM 1.8.3 (and M4-78EP). It's been completely re-made from scratch (thanks to Stoffe's extensive changelist in his readme), changing some things backstage, mainly just because it's easier for me to work in a slightly different way, and added functionality to add Disciple to your party as male as well.
As such, it's no "compatibility patch", it doesn't need anything (besides TSLRCM 1.8.3) to work.
Also, it has been modified to use the TSLPatcher instead of dumping files in the override, making it more compatible with other mods as well, and not require modifications just so it works from override (602/610 disc_enc.dlg).

Here's what the original readme had to say about it;

This is a simple modification for SWKotOR:The Sith Lords that give a female Exile a choice of bringing along The Handmaiden instead of The Disciple as a party member.

Use it if you wish some variety to your parties, or you can't stand the Disciple for whatever reason, or if you simply like the Handmaiden better. This mod will give you the choice.

It will only change when the game checks the gender of the Exile to determine whether to use the Handmaiden or the Disciple. No game content has been changed, so if you can't stand having the Handmaiden call you "he/him" all the time, then don't bring her along. :)

4. Playing instructions (read this or suffer)
Copied over from the original readme, as I used the same requirement for Handmaiden to join you as female as the original mod did.
To NOT make Handmaiden join you (either as male or female) pick the "I don't care - you're going back." or "I'm taking you back to Telos - you're not welcome on this ship." when Handmaiden sneaks onboard the Ebon Hawk after leaving the Telos Academy.

In order to get the Handmaiden to come along with a female Exile, you must speak with her (the one who isn't called "Handmaiden Sister" and just "Handmaiden") when you are in the Telos Academy. Talk to her about anything you like, but when you prepare to end the conversation, she will ask you what the Force feels like.

Here you must pick one of the polite options, either telling her what the force feels like or what it's loss feels like. When she thanks you for the explanation, you MUST respond with:

"If you have any further questions in the future, seek me out and ask them."

...if you want her to come along. If you say anything else there as a female Exile, she will not stow away on the Ebon Hawk and you'll pick up the Disciple on Dantooine instead as usual.

I thought this was the easiest way to subtly indicate that she should come along without going outside the story and add a dialog option to directly tell her to come, which would ruin the stowaway "surprise" scene on the Ebon Hawk.

Hi, I tested this Mod and it is great. I play a female and now I have the handmaid on my side. :)
But there is one thing: When I got to Dantooine, the handmaiden was not in my party and then I recruited the disciple. I was surprised that it worked . Now I have Disciple and handmaiden on my ship with all the dialogs.:)

The only sad point remains is that disciple replaces the handmaiden in the groupselection. Is there any way (perhaps in future) to decide which one I take with me? Like talk to one of them or just use a "switch" in the ship to get the one I want into the selection? There was also the idea to replace the goto slot with handmaiden/disciple. I am no modder and have no idea how hard this might be but I am sure, I am not the only one who dreams of a group with both.

Besides that. Thank you for your great mod and the chance to have a choice which one to take.

Well, the idea is you pick Handmaiden OR Disciple. If you have Handmaiden, you shouldn't be able to hire Disciple at all. That's... very strange.

Run TSLPatcher, point to install location... done? Pretty much the same as TSLRCM really.
What exactly do you have a problem with

I have a problem with the mod. I installed it properly, talked to Brianna as the readme file says, but it doesn't work, she hasn't showed up when she should have. What have I done wrong?

I am having a problem with the mod also. I have installed the mod correctly and followed the right conversation, yet she still does not show up when she should. Does alignment affect this?

No, it doesn't.
You asked her to seek you out if she had more questions? And then didn't appear on the Hawk?

I did seek her out and was polite then told her to seek me out, I tried the multiple variations of the polite options and still got the same end result of not having her on the Hawk. Is there anything I might have done that might be causing a problem (other mods/dialogue options)?

Maybe, or maybe I messed something up... will give it a run soon, but in the meanwhile; other mods?

With the one from yours, she would not appear post Coruscant after I followed the manual instruction on how to do it

Gave it a testrun, installing it on a fresh copy of 1.8.3, and it worked exactly as it should have.
Where did you install it. Perhaps you pointed it to the override rather than the root folder? Are there maps within the override folder?

Also remember it's possible now for players (either male or female) to reject her on the Hawk. So if she appears post-Coruscant cutscene but not on the ship, you probably rejected her offer, allowing you to go for Disciple with either gender...

I installed the game in a different directory but when I went to install the mod I set things up correctly, as for the maps none that I am aware of. I will uninstall/re install the game and then use the updated version and will post back the results.

Thank you for your time

I just tried the mod today, but after I extracted the patch, there was no option to select the install folder. The patcher, once launched, had three options: exit, a plus sign on a magnifying glass (which gave me the configuration summary), and a Install Mod option (which when clicked gives me unhandled error with "?Installation started 10/31/2014 3:40:14 PM..." on the log) and does not install. I am running windows 8.1 so I am wondering if the patcher is just not supported anymore?
