The usual response to complains about TSLRP was that people should make their own mod, then they could complain. 2 modders, Stoney and Zbyl2 (with help from Jinger and a few others), did.

TSLRCM was first released to the public on 24 september 2009. The release was version 1.4 and was labeled as a public beta, being a playable mod with few to no game breaking bugs. 1.4 was improved by patches 1.4a, 1.4b, 1.4c, and 1.4d. At this point, animator Savvy30039 decided to contribute her lean animation to the restoration, which was included in 1.4d.

On 15 march 2010 was the release of TSLRCM 1.5. A patch to the mod, 1.5a, was released shortly after to resolve some remaining bugs.

Between 1.5 and 1.6 the development team was strengthened by Hassat Hunter (previously testing) and Varsity Puppet (previously some minor tweaks, now HK-Factory, Peragus and other).

On June 24th, 2010, TSLRCM 1.6 was released, featuring various cutscene tweaks, dialog bug fixes and more.

On October 16th, 2010, TSLRCM 1.7 was released, which features additional bug-fixes and other additions such as: the Visas-Nihilus movie using the in-game engine to play (rather than a pre-rendered BIK movie), Kreia's Battle for Telos Mod integrated into the mod, the low-res BIK movies of the Dantooine battle replaced with in- game ones, and an improved dialog.tlk mod integrated/improved upon (for the English version.)

Almost a year has passed, but work still continued on 1.8, which is the biggest TSLRCM release yet. It has been released on 24 july 2012.

On 28 december 2012, after a long period of development, finally M4-78EP saw the light, adding a full grand planet to explore and experience more KOTOR2 gameplay in, and actually talk with Vash alive, explaining some critical details about force bonds to the player, meanwhile uncovering the events which took place just before the Exile's arrival.

The most current versions are TSLRCM 1.8.3, and M4-78EP 1.1 ("patched"), both released 15 March 2014.

TSLRCM 1.8.3

M4-78EP (patched)

Install instructions
 * There are only full installs of both TSLRCM 1.8.3 and M4-78EP (patched).
* Re-install The Sith Lords, taking care to remove all traces of old installs (removing override, modules folder etc.). You can keep your saves if they're made with 1.8.2 though.
* Install TSLRCM 1.8.3 following the instructions from the readme (seen down below as well).
* Install M4-78EP (patched) if so desired.
* Install any compatible mods at this stage.
* Happy gaming!

Also note that it seems one of the mirrors here seems to have issues with spaces or the .'s in the filename. If your download has a strange extension (like [1]) just rename it to .exe to make it working. Alternatively; use a different mirror (like our deadlystream site). Not quite sure why this happens sometimes, but so you know what's going on...

2. Installation:
1. If you're using an older version of TSLRCM (1.8 or lower), a game re-install is required before applying 1.8.3.
(Steam users, skip to point 4)
2. After re-installing it's advised to apply the official patch (1.0b). Non-US versions require you to install 1.0a first, then 1.0b, US versions can install 1.0b right away. Make sure to apply the patch that fits your version. Also, after installing 1.8.3, the official patch can no longer be installed!
3. If desired, apply the high quality music and/or movie patches
4. Install 1.8.3
We've had several users on Vista mention that instead of Program files (x86) it would point to Program Files/Program Files, causing the installation to fail. Make sure the installer points to the proper location of your KOTOR2 installation.
Default (32-bit windows); C:\Program Files\LucasArts\SWKotOR2\
Default (64-bit windows); C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\SWKotOR2\
Steam default (32-bit windows); C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Knights of the Old Republic II\
Steam default (64-bit windows); C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Knights of the Old Republic II\
NOTE FOR STEAM-USERS; Right-click the game, go to properties, then upgrades and set it to "Do not automatically update this game"! Failure to do so might cause Steam to undo our fixes!
5. To check if the installation has succeeded, try launching KOTOR2:TSL. If at the main menu it says "Restored Content Modification 1.8.3" on the screen the installation has been successful.
6. While we try our best to make this mod as bug-free as possible, with the many options of KOTOR2 and our small testing team bugs, critical ones, sometimes make it through. We will fix them, so check our site for any potential updates and patches. We would rather not have people play unpatched and then experience issues like the black screen (1.7) or red eclipse (1.6)!
7. Install any TSLRCM-compatible mods you desire now. If you're unsure if a mod you want is compatible, check our list at our forums, or section 6 - Mod compatibility in this readme.

* Saves from version 1.7 "should" work after installing version 1.8.3 but It is still suggested to start new game. Saves from 1.8 and above can savely be used, although some fixes may not take effect.
A fresh new game is always the best option for the least amount of issues.


Some behind the scene looks of how progress was made on various cutscenes, aside from the few already previously shown (such as the Ravager ones of Nihilus death and Tobin/Nihilus).

OBVIOUS SPOILERS! And obviously WIP content :D

Serroco attack Exchange;
First WIP:

Second WIP (already fairly close to final):

Pazaak WIP:

New Vash Death WIP:




Version5 (do you notice this thing took a lot of work?):

Extended M4 intro:

Kaah's Deathscene WIP:

Kaah's Deathscene WIP2:

Droid testing WIP:

Handmaiden vs. Atton WIP (courtesy of Danil-ch, who made it):

For all the final versions... well, you would have to check TSLRCM and M4-78EP yourself :)
And then you can see how hopefully they all got various improvements to them added over time...

Thanks for watching! And enjoy the mods!

Alternative ending to TSLRCM 1.8.3. Didn't used it in the end since it slowed down the pace of the ending .biks.

Hi I ran into a pretty big bug. I'm at the point where I'm firsting getting onto the Ebon Hawk and the Sith are boarding. When Atton finishes his dialog and we have to press the next dialog option and then one of two things happens. Either we load for a second or two, and then the game loads/saves in an endless loop. Or it let's me take a step or two, before the game loops loading/saving.

I'm not sure what could be causing this issue, since all the mods I've installed are TSLRCM compatible (I've picked them from the deadlystream post). I had edited a few things using KSE because of the sith apprentice lightsaber mod (christ its hard).

Is there a way to skip this section?

I don't recall there being any options there, just Atton talking and then loading.
What exactly does he say and are your options?

raeldrikp Apr 28 2014, 3:59am replied: Online

Actually I managed to "fix" the problem, by using another save file and using KSE to edit it for my class and choices.

Atton says his thing, and you don't have an option, per se, rather you have 1 piece of "dialog" that leads to you loading into the cockpit where the game would loop. I don't believe this is an issue with your mod, it might be an issue with Windows 8.1. When I get back home I'll try running it in compatibility mode, something I should've tried earlier lol.

Btw, have you tried the mod that gives sith assassins lightsabers? And I love the mod, thank you and the rest of the modders for your efforts.

Install 1.0b, and don't use any no-CD cracks, and swoop racing should be fine.

I'm assuming you've tried running it in compatibility mode for WinXP SvcPack2...? I had some keyboard issues and minor crashing issues until I applied this fix.

Restores and fixes the game how it should have been.

TSLRCM is fantastic, but the M-4-78 mod is an abomination. TSLRCM deserves a 10 with the restored content that, aside from the Jedi Padawan voice-over, is flawless. On the other hand M4-78 is like the undead - killed by Obsidian, resurrected by the TSLRCM team, but just stumbles along with no coherance trying to eat the players brain. The voice-overs are cringe worthy, the gameplay is incredibly boring, and the journal system is inadequate - most of the time I had no idea what I was supposed to…
