How to install mods for KOTOR 1 and 2

Step 1: How to choose the Files app

The first thing you need is the Files app. The app of choice is Solid Explorer, but alternatives such as ES File Explorer will work just fine. Google’s and Samsung’s built-in Files apps are useless because they don’t provide access to the folders you need. Once you’ve created the Files app, you’ll need to grant it some permissions before installing mods.

  • Go to android folder in the Files app.
  • A popup will appear explaining that you need to allow access to this directory.Tap forgive.
  • Tap use this folder It’s at the bottom of the screen.
  • You will be asked if you want to allow the app to access files in your data.Tap To give permission.

    Each mod provides instructions on how to install it and if other mods are required to run them. Note that if an automatic installation is offered, you should ignore it and use the manual method. I need to sort the folders. To be safe, I recommend backing up your saves before installing anything. We will use the file directory ‘com.aspyr.swkotor’ which corresponds to the first game in this tutorial. For the second game, look for the “com.aspyr.swkotorii” directory. The steps to back up your save data are the same for both games.

  • invite Android > Data > com.aspyr.swkotor > File.
  • Once in the directory, you save folder.
  • Here you’ll see a folder for each save you have.
  • Where you back them up is your choice. If you’re connected to a PC, you can copy and paste them to your hard drive, or upload them to Google Drive using the Files app’s Share feature. If anything goes wrong, your current progress is safe and you should reinstall the game.

    Step 3: How to install mods for KOTOR 1 and 2

    As I said before, how you install each mod depends on what it does. Some require you to paste the files into an existing folder, others require you to create an entirely new folder in the game’s directory. Make sure to read the mod instructions. All fine. For this demonstration, we will install the Recovered Content mod for Kotor 2. We prefer Nexus Mods, but the version you need here is only available from: deadly stream Because I had to tweak it to work on mobile. Unlike most mods, you have to restart the game to use this one.

  • Go to download folder on your phone.
  • Long press Open the mod .zip file and three-point button It’s on the bottom right.
  • Tap extract.
  • Once unzipped, you will see a folder with the same name as the mod, but without the .zip at the end. Open this folder.
  • Inside there is a folder called Download contents. Long press Download contents.
  • Tap. copy button (Second from the left on the bottom bar).
  • Tap internal memory It’s at the top of the screen.
  • invite Android > Data > com.aspyr.swkotorii > File.
  • Tap paste.
  • This is a large mod, so copying it all over may take several minutes.

    Once you have completed these steps and everything has been copied, launch Knights of the Old Republic 2. You should see “The Sith Lords Restore content modified” under the main menu title. This means the mod is installed correctly and you can enjoy the game.

    You should have no problem modding Knights of the Old Republic 1 or 2 as long as you follow the instructions provided with each mod and place the files exactly where they should be. These mods breathe new life into these old games. And it’s a testament to the community that continues to love them through all these years.
