KOTOR for the iPad/iPhone FAQ

AspyrJason
posted this on May 30, 2013 11:03 AM

Q: What iPad version do I need to play KOTOR?
A: KOTOR for the iPad is supported on the iPad 2 or newer.

Q: What iOS version do I need to play KOTOR?
A: KOTOR for the iPad will work on iOS 6 or newer.

Q: What iPhone type do I need to play KOTOR? 

A: KOTOR Universal will run on the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5S, and iPod Touch (5th Generation).

Q: Is KOTOR for the iPad localized in any other language other than English?
A: Text and subtitle support for French, Italian, German, and Spanish.  It is required that your iOS language is changed to the desired language in order for it to be enabled in game.

Q: When I try to move with my character, my hand is in the way. Any way around this?
A: You can move your character with your hand gestures from nearly anywhere on the screen. We like to position our hand to the far left or right of the screen, so we can see the classic Star Wars environment better.

Q: Are there any plans for an iPhone version? 

A:Yes. It's out.
Q: Are there any plans for an Android version?  

A: Nope, not yet.
Q: Are there any plans for KOTOR 2?
A: Today we are excited to reveal and launch the iPad version of Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic. We have no other news to share regarding upcoming Aspyr products, but please stay tuned!

Q: I get an error saying something about not enough “free space” to install the app.
A: An app install generally requires twice the size of the app in free space on your iPad. The download uses a temp file for the installer, so the space needed can be much more than the size of the app. This is especially true of large app files such as complex games and detailed map programs. Installing the App to your computer first should bypass this issue.

Q: Are cloud saves supported?

A: Players can manually transfer a single save through iCloud between their devices.

See article here:

Manually moving saves:

I wanted to say that if I haven't already I figured the issue with the crashing it has to do with porting the game to IPad which it was never intended to do.

Jacob, sorry to hear you're having problems, are you on iOS 6, 7, or 8?

Regardless, try this first:

Double-click the Home button to bring up the multitasking screen, then close all apps (swipe up). Then, shut down your iPad and let it sit for a minute. Then power it back up, and try launching the game again.

Sometimes on the older devices, memory can get clogged up, so freeing up your device's memory should help.

If that doesn't fix it, please submit a support ticket so we can get you up and running.

Hey Alex, as far as opening a ticket goes I think you can just put something random for those fields that don't apply. As long as it shows KOTOR iPad, they'll get the idea.

 

In the meantime, try this:

1. Double click your Home button to bring up the Multitasking bar, then close all open applications.

2. Shut down and then restart your iPad.

3. Launch KOTOR and try to enter the Ebon Hawk.

 

If that doesn't work, then by all means submit a ticket to Support.

Love the game, except when it comes to the swoop racing. I think it would be great if you guys could utilize the accelerometer for better control. Maybe an onscreen joystick to control the characters. Even better if it was for the turret mini game along with a fire button.

I have some issues about general level of the IPad version. I am using IPad 3, with the retina display, so I can play such game as Deus Ex The Fall, with all its amassing graphics. What I can see, playing this game, is that picture that I took from the Movie called Escaping Pod. And there is also another one, from the game. Can you please update the graphics to the normal level, so I can really enjoy the perfect game with the perfect graphics. Than it will also be grate, to begin with, if you switch the option to use joystick control at least for running, because the auto ran is quite complicated and it is a little bit annoying, to drag my finger of the right hand to choose direction. An addition to all these issues, I want to ask you about Russian language, because it will make the game more interesting and easier for us (Russians)

When do you plan, if at all, to make a Android/Kindle Version of this game? I am probably one of the biggest fan of this game. I am a minor mod maker and beta tester at Deadly Stream (Look it up if you like KOTOR).

I'm in Naga Sadow's tomb on Korriban, but when I walk into the room with the acid pool, approach the door to Naga Sadow's Monument, or pull the lever in the terantek room, nothing happens. I also receive no message allowing me to throw the special grenades into the pool and no option to interact with the terminal. What do I do? I can't progress any further without it!

Kim and Lotti have a pressing problem here that no one seems to have addressed - I'm having the exact same one.  After traveling from planet but planet, but NOT actually collecting the Star Maps, I've been locked out from progressing beyond a certain point.  The Krayt Dragon is back in the cave on Tatooine, but there's no more hunter to activate getting rid of it (as I already did so once).  AND, the door to the sub bay in the Republic Embassy on Manaan, which I have already been through, is now locked and the Hrakert Rift rendered inaccessible.

Something is up here with the game trying to re-load itself, and clearly messing up pretty badly. 

Suggestions?

"Moving Files Around" - from Mac back to iPad

There is a slight problem with this process. iPad to Mac works fine as per the FAQ instructions, however moving back using the zip method does not work properly for me - the iPad game cannot load or recognise the save files.

The problem appears to be that the Mac saves its gamesave files in uppercase, which the iPad game cannot read. Go into your specific save folder, change all the filenames to lowercase and then zip etc as per instructions

Woohoo, I figured it out all by myself! I didn't realize that you don't need to keep your finger on the screen to accelerate. I assumed it was like the PC or XBOX where you need to hold down a button to keep going. Just need to swipe and tap to move and change gears. Make sure you don't leave your finger on the screen!

Hi I'm so frustrated I'm on the verge of pulling my hair out! I am on manaan and am at the control centre having just walked underwater in the environment suit. I can't get past the force field. The scientists won't fall for my persuasion (level4) and the computer just says airlock control inactive without offering to do anything for spikes or anything! I looked online and there is talk of 60 seconds of depressurisation but nothing like this happens with me - the scientists are just standing there meekly but refuse me entry. Also, I can't attack the force- field. I am truly stuck! Help!!!

I quicksaved immediately after beating the sith govenor on taris (finally!), got all the items out of his inventory as well as the lock boxes, and went on my merry way. Five minutes later, I realized I had forgotten to do something, so I reloaded my quicksave. No big deal, right? Well....upon reload, his body was missing, there were no items in the lockboxes, and I still had the XP from finishing that battle. No remains = no flight codes = stuck on Taris. Help! I don't want to have to load an older save game and redo days of work! Is there anything that can be done?

After escaping the Leviathan, I am stuck on board the Ebon Hawk. My mini map is gone, I can not use the travel map, some times I am able to communicate with the crew members, Juhani is missing, and I will get stuck in certain rooms on the ship and have to force close the app. How do I move forward? A google search revealed that this was a glitch for Xbox as well. Please help!

Follow up to my last comment: So, I tried everything to get the acid pool to respond or show me the cutscene, or something, but to no avail. I went with my plan B and deleted and re-downloaded the game. As painful as it was, I was able to pass the acid pool. In retrospect, this probably would fix most impassable game glitches. However, depending on your progress, and the impassability of the obstacle encountered, deleting and redownloading may not be an advisable solution. Best of Luck, Sam

Kim, that is exactly the same bug as for me, except that it's a locked door on Manaan that is stopping me from progressing! And it happened the same way, completing many quests on one planet, leaving for a fairly long time then returning. I'm glad someone else has reported it so that hopefully they'll put focus on it for an update soon.

I put hours into a game that I CANNOT continue now. I went to Tatooine and did everything except actually click on the star map so that I could have the ability to return to Dantooine if I so wished before it got destroyed. I wanted to do all the little side missions, therefore leave all the planets available. I went to another world, and when I came back to Tatooine, it acted like I had never been there. I could repeat all the missions and get experience again, except for the dragon. When I go to Komad, he doesn't redo the mines or whatever that kills the dragon. He says it's done, and runs off (since I had completed this the first time I was here). But, the DRAGON IS STILL THERE! My entire party gets eaten if i go intonthe cave and there's absolutely nothing I can do. I am extremely frustrated that this bug happened because I put so much time into this and now it is impossible to continue my game.

I am stuck at the "massive door" on the star forge planet. Supposedly the puzzle solution is to get an "H" pattern on the floor, but even when I do the door will not open and it indicates the pattern is wrong. Any help would be appreciated, I believe this is a bug and I am stuck.

Aspyr provided great support for the iPad bug where you can not travel to the Star Forge. Here is what to do:

1) Load a saved game

2) Select the Galaxy Map

3) Touch the Star Forge planet next to your ship's icon

4) Select Travel

I had to click on and off the Star Forge planet icon several times to get this to work... But, it finally did.

I am having the same issue as Philip... I have repaired the hyper drive on the Ebon Hawk. When I go to travel to the star forge, a thin blue line pops up before and after I try to travel using the galaxy map. This thin blue line looks to be an empty dialogue box. Regardless, it will not let me travel. This is so aggravating so close to the end! Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would be happy to send video or screenshots if it would help! iPad Mini > iOS 6.1.3

Quick question. In the PC version, there was a "Bastila romance bug" that was only patched (I think) by modders. If the romance plot goes well (playing a male character), you eventually wind up having a private conversation with Bastila in the port side crew quarters on the Hawk. The bug happens IF you speak to her about what happened afterwards. Without the patch, to have the romance option available at endgame required NOT having that follow up conversation. So, is this bug present in the iPad version. I could play through and find out myself, but it would be nice to know if it isn't there and I could continue with conversations. Thanks.

I just deactivated the disrupt or field and fixed my hyper drive on the planet right before the star forge. I go to activate travel to the star forge and I get a thin blue line momentarily appear and then nothing happens. I reloaded and tried again, but even though I have fixed the hyper drive, nothing happens. I am so close to the end! Is this a glitch for others? I'm using iOS 6.1.3 on an iPad with retina display

Any estimates on when future updates will be out? Days, weeks, months? All I direly car about is weapon flourish, but there are several bugs. Nobody has mentioned a swoop racing bug I've encountered where the acceleration pads don't work occasionally.

 

I wish other games would adopt Aspyr's WASD/mouse to touchscreen conversion, it opens up the possibility to port so many games to tablets.

My gamed has bugged out so that I can't finish it. Played it through once just fine. On the second play through, I completed some and started most of the quests on Manaan, then skipped over to Korriban and completed most of the quests there. So I hadn't reach the star maps of either world. Before collecting the star map on Korriban I decided to get the star map on Manaan- and this is the bug; when I arrived on Manaan, every single thing reacted at first like I hadn't already been there. The doors were all closed, despite being alone Hulas gave me the speech about observing blah blah, the Sith tried to gather a walking toll from me etc. A bit bothersome, but I didn't realise it was actually a problem until I tried to get to the submersible and found that the Republic door is shut and locked. There's no way around it. Any ideas? Has this come up before? Lotti.

To avoid the "Quick Save and you're all dead" issue, do not multitask/switch out of the game when you die.  It seems that the game does an autosave to keep you from losing progress.

As some others have noted, there's a pretty nasty bug that frequently does an automatic "Quick Save," or overwrite the existing Quick Save, right before your party is killed.  Then, of course, when you try to load your last Quick Save, you find that your party has been killed as soon as it loads!

This is really, really frustrating, and both I and my son have experienced it on 2 different iPads (an iPad 2 and a Retina iPad "3").  If you could look into that, it would be great.  Otherwise, well done.

Hi there everyone. I personally don't have an iPad, though I do have the original game on PC still. One of my co-workers has an iPad, and recently bought this game, and he loves it. However, he wants a little more oomfph so we're doing the save-game swap thing from me to his iPad.

Now, he had issues last week with the "Old save" issue, but I've recreated the .zip with all lowercase throughout the folders and files(except the KOTOR folder itself), so hopefully that will work for him on Monday. My real question is, can we use that same file-transfer method to upload user-created modifications to the iPad version of the game? I know a few mods he might really like, including the cut-content addition mods(Glow Rod), and possibly some of the reskins. Since our time out of work really isn't conducive to trying this now, I was hoping someone in the know might be able to shed light on this subject.

UPDATE/RECTIFICATION: I have to stand corrected on the "notifications bug" I mentioned before. There's no such bug in the game. The only bug is me and my sillyness not seeing that I had the notification bar disabled for my mail... Sorry all. Therefore, the only bugs I've found so far are: 1. My character got trapped in the crystal cave inside a crystal. I couldn't move anywhere nor exit the cave with another member because the team wasn't complete. I had to load a previous savegame. 2. One light sabers (blue) that I had equipped didn't show the blue ray, even though it should have shown it. I unequipped and re-equipped and it showed well.

@Lucian Nice to see you got it working.

For the rest who have problems: it's VERY strange that with the amounts of copies the game must have sold, only a bunch of you are having problems of the game not working. Sure, there are minor bugs (the notifications don't show for example, at least for me), but that doesn't mean the game doesn't work. If I were you I'd follow the scientific way:

1. Close all apps from the task bar.

2. Turn off/on the iPad.

3. Reboot the iPad.

4. Restore a backup copy from iTunes to the iPad.

5. Restore the iPad completely (default settings, factory settings or whatever it's called) and reinstall the game first, before anything else.

Be aware that it's very advisable to have 1GB free space minimum after installing the game. I know it's not RAM, but my iPhone 4 suffered severe slowdowns and app crashes when I had less than 1GB free, so I guess there must be some kind of RAM swap archive/process going on in the free space you have. KOTOR is VERY resource-consuming, so you should bear this in mind too (possibly the notifications not showing has to do with the CPU being used 100% by the game). Also, remember to check your crash logs to see why the app is crashing (under settings, they are there).

If this doesn't work, then you can say the game doesn't work. When you report what happens, remember to:

1. Give exact details of how/when/where it crashes.

2. Specify iOS version, iPad version, language settings, if it's jailbroken or not, and any other useful information you can think of.

Devs are answering many questions here and giving many tips on what to do, so I'm sure if a serious bug exists they will find it.

Kevin and Dante, did you receive the Missing Selkath quest from the Selkath in the bar across from the courtroom? Shaelas I believe is his name, and he's looking for his missing daughter. You can't enter her room without that quest. Also, there are a number of different ways to avoid being executed in the trial. Google "KOTOR walkthrough" and you should find a ton of sites that will help you through just about any obstacle.

It is dishonest to claim that there is anything wrong with so many iPads where the game crashes. No other apps crash on mine, it is fully updated and it has almost all of its space free. The game still crashes pretty much every other minute and on most saves. It's entirely unplayable and I want my money back.

Hey everyone, I bought this game with an Ipad Mini and for some reason the game keeps crashing every time I pick party selection or when I have to take Canderous Ordo to go to Davik's hideout. It's incredibly frustrating because I deleted the game and reinstalled it while preserving my game save progess, yet it still crashes everytime at this part. I've tried for the past two days. I even tried closing the game, then reopening it with the multitask bar. I'm completely stumped :(

Let go (of the touchscreen) after each maneuver, I had the same problem and this made it 1000x easier.

Is there a way to use a keyboard for swoop racing, the finger sweep method is far to sensitive for the precise maneuvers required. I have changed the sensitivity on the game itself but it really does not change the issue. Can I plug in a keyboard for just the swoop races.

 

Thank you.

I think it is very disappointing that I need to re purchase this App for my iPad after previously purchasing it for my iMac. The main reason of me buying it was to play it on all devices. Please can you change this Asphyr, it's really not fair. Thank you

Can anyone help me. I just left the sith base on manan and now nearly everyone attacks me. Even quest characters. This was alright for the first while but I got to the final mission and had to kill both groups. Now I can't get into the temple

Hey, first I just want to say thanks for work you put into this excellent port.

It seems perfect although it is missing one detail that may seem small but it is huge - weapon flourishing. I haven't played this game since it came out for the original Xbox but I knew something was missing.

Do you have any plans to get the weapon flourishing into this game? Please let me know.

Im getting issues with KOTOR on my iPad mini. Been running great for quite awhile now, but now on Taris, every time I try to enter the Vulkar base its crashes. Anything that can be done with this. Also i've noticed that if you receive any messages from imessage while runing KOTOR it also crashes. Any help is appreciated

AspyrQAMatt -- I went back to my apartment and sure enough Carth was there. Odd. I don't remember switching him off... LOL! Thanks anyway! :-)

Greg, what planet are you on? If you are still on Taris, you may have left the apartment without him, or switched him out with Zaalbar. If you are on the first part of Dantooine, you can't have any party members until you speak to the council.

The best way to check is to go to Options, then Map, and then Party Selection.

 

Oliver and Reelburn, have you gone through the advice Jason posted about clearing apps out of memory and restarting your iPad? Try double-clicking the Home button, holding down an app in the multi-tasking bar until a red minus appears, then closing all the apps in there. Then restart your iPad. See if that resolves the issue. Let us know either way.

Also -- to everybody crying like little babies about KOTOR not working on their iPads, all I have to say is deal with it and stop crying; 10 times out of 10 it's an issue with your iPad and not the game itself. And to the person who's angry about not being able to play KOTOR on his iPad (1st Generation) my first suggestion to you would be to get real. Would you like an empty glass for those tears?

A former member of my party, Carth, is no longer with me! Help! I don't know where he went. I'm about 5 hours in and when I went to play the game this morning I noticed he's not with me anymore. I'm not on "solo play" either. I made sure that wasn't checked on. Has anybody had a character mysteriously disappear? I don't know where Carth went.

Hey, I'm having a little trouble with the game... I downloaded it, and booted it, it all worked beautifully, played for around 7 minutes, but it crashed while saving, luckily there was a save just before, so I played a few minutes more, and then saved and quit the game. Now when I try to boot the app, it crashes immediately, as soon as the splash screen fills up the screen. I have tried reinstalling, but the same thing still happens... Is it possible that deleting the app doesn't delete saves, and that failed save is coming back to haunt me? I am using an iPad mini with 11.8GB of free space, if that helps any.

Hi, I just want to say that you guys have done a wonderful job. I remember when I play the original PC version, I experienced so much technical problems that it severely affect my experience, so I was expecting bugs when I first run it on my iPad mini. Surprisingly, I find that your version runs a lot better when compared to the original PC version, and I have been enjoying it for the last couple of days. Just want to say thank you again and please keep the good stuffs coming!

This is from Apple's iPad User Guide for iOS 6.1 (page 128).

 Restarting and resetting iPad

 If something isn’t working right, try restarting iPad, forcing an app to close, or resetting iPad.

 Restart iPad: Hold down the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears. Drag the slider to turn off iPad. To turn iPad back on, hold down the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.

 Force an app to close: Hold down the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPad for a few seconds until a red slider appears, then hold down the Home button until the app closes.

 If you can’t turn off iPad or if the problem continues, you may need to reset iPad. This should be done only if turning iPad off and on doesn’t resolve the problem.

 Reset iPad: Hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

 

Here's a link to the iPad user guide:

http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/ipad_user_guide.pdf

 And here is the basic "troubleshooting Apps from the iOS store"

It really sounds like these problems are related to cluttered iPads.

I am going to reiterate the importance of maintainace:

Here are some pretty good articles on general iPad maintenance:

http://www.zeropaid.com/news/100960/ipad-maintenance-tips/

http://www.technologytell.com/apple/76656/ipad-care-and-maintenance/

Having a properly maintained iPad and knowing how to save storage space can mitigate many of the download/crashing issues some of you guys are talking about. As usual, we recommend reading everything you can about maintaining your hardware. There is tons of information out there, feel free to share.

Could somebody help me? Every time I try to save the game, either quick or in the menu the game blacks out and closes the app, returning me to the Ipad screen, and it deletes my save. Also in the second area of the game, when you try to go to upper city it blacks out as well.I don't know what to do :(.

In the PC version, you could hit a key (I think it was "Z") to make your character flourish their sword(s) or light saber(s). It didn't really add anything to the gameplay, but it looked super cool. Any plans to bring this feature to the iPad?

I really just wanted to say thank you to the team that made KotOR available on iPad! The game is working great on my iPad Mini. I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to be able to play this game on a tablet. Thank you. Thank you. THANK YOU, Can't wait to see what else you have coming. Maybe KotOR II (hint hint). :D

What are the swoop racing controls? My swoop is flying all over the place. The only way to race is to stay straight.

Is there any chance at all that this may come to iPhone/iPod because the controls wouldn't have to be hugely resized I know this because I watched a YouTube video( not completely reliable but still.) and tried the finger fittings yeah it may take a bit of work but I would pay top dollar for this.

So believe it or not, but it's all about capitalization. The files within the "save" folder "globalvars.res", "partytable.res" and "savegame.sav" all had capitals for the suffix of the filename. Changing their names to lower case resolved the loading issue and the saves now transfer successfully from Mac KOTOR

So I was able to get the games to be properly recognized by iPad KOTOR by de-captilizing the "G"  in the save game folders from Mac KOTOR. "000002 - Game1" to "000002 - game1". However, now they are loading halfway and locking up iPad KOTOR.

I've tried to transfer saves from the Mac App Store KOTOR without success.
The saves I've transferred show up in the load game screen when I follow your instructions, however they are listed as "Old Save Game" instead of their name. When I then load them on the iPad it sits at a black screen.
I've tried transferring a save from the iPad to KOTOR on the Mac, which works fine, but if I save over it or create another save and transfer it back, it does not work on the iPad.

Jeff, warning on transferring saves this way, after you launch the game it will unzip to put your saves there, but it will also unzip them every time you launch. So after you've launched once, go back to iTunes and delete the zip file from your iPad, otherwise it will overwrite those saves every time with the state they were in when zipped. Not a problem if you are creating brand new saves every time, but if you are overwriting the same saves (and Auto/Quick saves always overwrite the same file), deleting the zip will avoid a lot of headaches.

How to Pull saves from iPad:
1. Connect iPad to PC/Mac with iTunes.
2. Select the iPad in iTunes.
3. Go to Apps tab and select KOTOR app in File Sharing.
4. Select the KOTOR folder and select 'Save to...' button. 5. Save to Desktop (or other location).

How to add saves to iPad:
  1. Connect iPad to PC/Mac with iTunes.

  2. Place save folder in a folder with path: KOTOR/saves/

         (Capitalization matters).
    
  3. Compress the KOTOR folder.

  4. In iTunes select the iPad.

  5. Navigate to Apps tab and select KOTOR in File Sharing.

  6. Drag KOTOR.zip to the File Sharing window.

  7. Launch KOTOR.

NOTE: If there are a lot of saves, the unzipping will take some time,
sitting on a black screen. DO NOT close the app while it is unzipping

The game is running great on my iPad3 and iPad Mini. What I need is a way to transfer saves between the two. The game supports backing up the save data in iTunes but there does not seem to be a good way to transfer them back up. Adding files is a file at a time and does not allow selecting where the file goes. I know you guys did not develop the iTunes side of things but if there is a way to transfer saves it would be good to include. I expect iCloud support is too much of a stretch for the amount of data.

Downloaded ok to my iPad mini after a few error messages (can't load app right now or something like that). Will not load to my iPad 3 which has more free space. Loads perhaps 5% and then gives that same error. Logging out and in doesn't help. Rebooting doesn't help. What gives?
