Q: What is The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod?
A: The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod is a mod for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II that is intended to “restore” some game content that, for various reasons, never made it into the final release. The mod also addresses and fixes some bugs in the game. It is by far the most popular mod for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II.
However, as it is a mod, it is not at all required to play or enjoy the game. Like any other mod, it simply tweaks the game to provide a slightly different gameplay experience.
IMPORTANT: The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod will NOT work with an in-progress game. You will need to start a new game to enjoy the content from this mod. Likewise, if you remove the mod in the middle of an in-progress game, you will no longer be able to continue that particular playthrough until the mod is re-installed and re-activated.
Q: Is it possible to transfer saved game progress from Windows PC over to Mac (or Linux)?
A: Yes, saved game data will work cross-platform. You can manually move the file from one platform to another, or you can use Steam Cloud.
Please note that if you’re transferring saved game data that has been created using a modded game, you must have the exact same mods installed on the platform you are transferring to in order for it to work.
