After completing these steps and ensuring that everything is copied over correctly, launch Knights of the Old Republic 2. You’ll see “The Sith Lords restored content modification” in the main menu under the title if the mod has been installed correctly, and you’re all set to enjoy the game. Keep in mind that the mod may have a different name and may display a similar message, depending on which one you’re installing.
The best mods for KOTOR 1 & 2 are those that fix the game’s biggest problems. Both KOTOR 1 and KOTOR 2 suffered from rushed development, which led to the removal of many files from the game before its release. However, these files were easily accessible to modders, leading to the creation of the Restoration Mod for KOTOR 1 and The Sith Lords Recovered Content Mod for KOTOR 2. These mods reintroduce most of the cut content into the games, including missing quests, bug fixes, dialogue, and an additional difficulty option. Firstly, locate the Downloads folder on your phone and find the mod’s .zip file. Long-press it and click the three-dot button at the bottom right of your screen.
Next, select “extract” and wait for the extraction process to complete. Once done, you’ll notice a folder with the same name as the mod but without the .zip extension.
Installing mods on Android is not a universal experience, and it’s even more challenging than on PC. We’ll show you how to install the Recovered Content mods for KOTOR 2, and by following these tips, you’ll see how the process works on Android and any caveats to the usual process. The version needed here is only available from Deadly Stream, as it had to be tweaked to function on mobile.
To install the Recovered Content mods for KOTOR 2, follow these steps:
- Navigate to the Downloads folder on your phone.
- Long-press the mod’s .zip file and tap the three-dot button at the bottom right of your screen.
- Tap extract.
- When the extraction is complete, you’ll see a folder with the same name as the mod but without the .zip at the end. Open this folder.
- Inside is a folder called dlc. Long-press this folder.
- Tap the copy button (second from the left on the bottom bar).
- Tap INTERNAL MEMORY at the top of the screen.
- Navigate to android>data>com.aspyr.swkotorii>files.
- Tap paste.
Once you’ve completed these steps and everything is copied over, launch Knights of the Old Republic 2. You should see “The Sith Lords restored content modification” in the main menu under the title. That means the mod has been installed correctly, and you can enjoy the game. Depending on the mod, a similar message may appear.
