An Add-On Booster pack for my Hak Pad mod (you must install the main mod first for this one to work):
Adds additional functions:
TSL Hak Pad Booster Pack v2.0
Length of time to make:
** Attention **
This is NOT a standalone mod! You will need to download and
install my TSL Hak Pad Mod in order for this Booster Pack to
work. You can get my Hak Pad Mod at any of these sites:
This is an expansion pack to my TSL Hak Pad cheat mod. It is
also backwards compatible with my Booster Pack v.1, meaning
you don't have to download it (if you haven't already) to get the
functions it added. If you HAVE downloaded it, then just overwrite
the files when prompted :D
With permission, andargor has allowed me to incorporate his
Holowan CLoakworks 2 Disguise mod! Over 500+ disguises are
now available (PC & NPC)!
andargor - http://www.andargor.com/
- Added andargor's Holowan CLoakworks 2 Disguises function
- Tweaked a few dialogue tree descriptions / categories
- Added Set PC / NPC's Level
- Added Adjust Skill Point Levels Function
- Added Adjust Attribute Scores Function
- **Added a "hidden" Special Interface for other Modder's Tools
** What this means is that if you happen to have the following
mods installed, you can access it's functions through the Hak Pad
without having to equip it!
You WILL however have to download and install their mods for this
function to be available. You will also need to have their mod items
in your inventory (the actual armbands).
But don't worry! If you don't have the mods, the special dialogue won't
appear! (No need to worry about accidentally choosing an invalid
function and crashing your game).
- Darth333's Wherami Armband
- RedHawke's Mistake Correction Armband
- mrdefender's Wrist Console
If you have already installed the above mods and they're working fine,
don't change a thing! BUT, if you would like to download and use them
via the Hak Pad, here's a little tip... just install all of the files
WITHOUT the spells.2da. That's right, you won't need to edit it
because the Hak Pad will directly access it's functions via the item's
dialogue! How's that for a "hack"?!.. hehehe ;)
On a sidenote, thanks to feedback from the Original Hak Pad Mod,
I have found that this mod also works for the Xbox!
2. Original Hak Pad DESCRIPTION:
What this mod does is allows you to access the game's items via
"Virtual Storefronts". So now, not only do you get the item, but
you can read the stats, information and such as well as look at
them before "creating" the item for yourself. ALL items are
included in the variety of Storefronts, and all items are FREE.
That's right, FREE, afterall this mod IS a cheating console
Also, the Hak Pad can award Lightside Points, Darkside Points as
well as act as a credit dispenser. PLUS, you can access both a
Medical Lab Bench as well as a Workbench.
Because I wanted this to be easily accessible, the Hak Pad can be
used from your game's main screen in your usable items bar to the
lower left (where the armbands and such are displayed). The item
itself is a Datapad, so you don't have to worry about having to
equip an item in order to access it's functions.
Please bear in mind this is by no means a replacement for tools
such as tk102's SaveGame Editor. That program has MUCH MORE
capabilities than this mod. Mine is mainly to be used for in-game
cheats without having to exit the game to get them.
One note, this mod will only allow you access to normal in-game
items. Not custom items, modded items or anything of that nature.
This was one main reason why I decided to use "Storefronts". If
you have a little bit of modding knowledge, you can easily "insert"
modded items into the Virtual Storefront's inventory. The game will
then recognize the new items once you start your game. So in a
manner, this mod is 'customizable' to your tastes. However, if your
modded items are simply adjusted in-game .uti's (with the same name)
those modded items WILL be available within the Storefronts. The
inventory calls upon the game's list of item's .uti names.
Upon using the Hak Pad, you WILL notice some itmes that have no
descriptions, or some may have no icons. This is because I've
included EVERYTHING from TSL's .uti references. There are visual
stunt models, non-upgradeable versions of items and a host of other
goodies. I especially urge you to check out the Guns Storefront as
it has some unique hand stunts that are amusing to say the least ;)
USE THE ITEMS IN THE MOD AT YOUR OWN RISK!! *
Just like with cheat code console items, some items may have
unknown and unforseeable side effects... this mod is to be used
as a "tool" of sorts. All it is, is a visual reference substitute
to the cheat console. Of course, at least with this mod, there's
no .ini hacks to be made. Even if you don't use it to gain the
items, it will at least provide you with some stuff so you can
experiment or look over if you are curious. I know that due to
the random loot generator, some items are rarely, if ever, seen
by everyone... Now you have the chance without having to dig out
the cheat codes ;)
Feedback and suggestions are most welcome! I'm quite sure that
this mod is 'incomplete' and a Work In Progress. There ARE some
features I haven't been able to incorperate yet...(such as Ability
and Skills adjustments) but future Booster Packs will add on to
it's functionality. Any input to what you'd like to see would be
and lastly, ENJOY!

4. INSTALLATION & COMPATIBILITY:
1) If you haven't done so already, create a folder named "override"
(without quotes) in your KotOR II directory.
2) Be sure you have installed the Hak Pad Mod BEFORE installing
this Booster Pack.
3) Open the .rar file and then double-click the "Override" folder
4) Drag-n-Drop all the files into your game's Override folder (or
sub-folder where the Hak Pad mod is installed). Default path is:
5) You will be prompted to overwrite several Files. Go
ahead and click "OK".
**- the "Source" folder within the .rar contains the un-compiled
source scripts for the Booster Pack. These are NOT necessary for
the mod to work. Don't worry about them unless you're just curious
or want to "tweak" the functions.
5. How To Add Custom Items To The Hak Pad's Storefronts:
First, you'll need Fred Tetra's KotOR Tool:
Now, once you start KotOR Tool, goto: File > Open GFF Files...
Depending on what you want to edit (storefront), open the appropriate
hak_armor.utm --> Armor, Clothing, etc.
hak_bands.utm --> Armbands & Shields
hak_belts.utm --> Belts and Stealth Items
hak_droid.utm --> ALL droid related stuff
hak_explosives.utm --> grenades, mines rockets
hak_jedi.utm --> Robes, Crystals, Sabers and Upgrades
hak_masks.utm --> Masks & Headgear
hak_medical.utm --> Health, Stims & Implants
hak_melee.utm --> Melee Weapons & Upgrades
hak_misc.utm --> Parts, Spikes, Tunnelers, Pazaak Cards, etc.
hak_ranged.utm --> Blasters, Rifles, Upgrades
Once that opens, to your lower left is a button named "Inventory"...
~ Click It ~
Now here's the tricky stuff...
To your left is the game items, to your right is the store inventory.
Grab ANYTHING from the Left side of the screen (a datapad is usually
the easiest to distinguish) and drag-n-drop it over to the Right side
of the screen (The Inventory)...
Now scroll all the way to the bottom... and you'll see the item you
Click the "Dropable" check box so the check mark goes away
In the "ResRef" column, highlight the entry and type in the ResRef
(cheat code) of the modded item you want to be available. Next to that
entry, you can enter a quantity (how many of said item you want to be
able to buy in one store visit)... enter any number from 1-99
Now, check the "Dropable" box so that the check mark appears again...
** You don't have to enter a "Name", KotOR Tool will erase it anyways,
so there's no point in it ;)
Now, click the "OK" button to the lower right, then on the smaller
window click the "Save" button and save either to your override folder
or wherever you opened the file from.
** Make sure when all is said and done, you drop the new edited and
saved file in your override...Hope That Helps! :D
Though this mod is not a standalone mod, just a Booster Pack, the
cheats below are for the actual Hak Pad.
1- with cheats enabled, type "~" (without quotes) and enter:
2-) Press "ENTER"
** For the Anti-Console,
You're out of luck. Since this IS a "cheating/just for fun mod",
I didn't feel "right" about adding it in the game. Kinda defeats
the purpose. I'd suggest using tk102's Save Game Editor to get it:
Plus, since it's useable from the get go, there's no need to
"back track" your steps or start a new game in order to get it.
To uninstall the additional functions this Booster Pack adds,
delete the following files. *HOWEVER, you will need to replace
the "hakpad_start.dlg" with the original mod's .dlg file.
Otherwise choosing options unavailable MAY crash your game.
Super-Special thanks to:
For posting the "Frequently Used Script Functions" thread over
at Holowan Laboratories.
And for the DLGEditor! Without it, this Hak Pad Booster Pack
(and the original mod) wouldn't have been possible! I'm way too
lazy to try and do this in a GFF Editor ;) hehehe...
