INTRODUCTION:

This guide will help new players get through the game with less frustration
about character build, missed opportunities, or trying to figure out some
puzzles. This is not a walk-through guide. I've minimized spoilers, but there
are some. And I've also tried to give you options on building a character to 
suit your playing style. Essentially, this guide is what I wish I knew when
I first played this game. It does not cover all side quests.

Your main character will be a Jedi Sentinel who then becomes a Jedi Weapon
Master. 

Choose to use either a single or dual lightsabers early. Either way has some 
advantages: Single- better defense and attack, Dual- extra attack and chance 
to use more lightsaber crystals. If dual weapons, use a short lightsaber in 
the off hand to further reduce attack penalties. However, late in the game,
dual lightsabers become extremely powerful.

See the section on Combat Basics to better understand how gameplay works
for battles.


===========================================
TERMS:

Die roll- The basis of combat and skills use throughout the game. For example,
          the program picks a random number from 1-20 (based on one 20-sided
          die--a 1d20 roll) for an attacker to determine whether or not the 
          attack is a successful hit. The rolled number is added to the 
          attacker's BAB + DEX mod + other attack bonuses, and if the total
          number is greater than the defender's Defense, then that hit is 
          successful.

VP-       Vitality points, the health of your character.

SP-       Skill points, your ability to perform certain skills.

FP-       Force points, your ability to use Force powers.

XP-       Experience points, required to level up.

DC-       Difficulty Class; the relative difficulty of a task. DC applies to
          skill use and saving throw attempts.

Skills-   If you have a usable skill for target (such as mine or door), which
          shows in action list, you get a 1d20 die roll + skill rank + bonuses
          vs. DC of target.

Attack-   Chance to hit opponent (1d20 die roll + STR mod + weapon mod +/-
          Feat/Force bonuses). Must equal or beat opponent's DC. Note: DEX mod
          used for ranged attacks.

Defense-  A character's Difficulty Class; the chance to avoid being hit 
          (Base DC10 + armor + DEX mod +/- Feats bonuses +/- Force bonuses). 

Damage-   Amount of hurt done by successful Attack, measured in VP. (Weapon die
          roll + STR mod + Feats bonuses - defender bonuses). 

BBD-      Blaster bolt deflection with lightsaber (or hand with feat).

BAB-      Base Attack bonus (fighting ability): starts at 1 and increase
          1 per level.

Saves-    Ability to resist certain types (All, Fortitude, Reflex, Will) of 
          damage, effects, or powers (number added to die roll). Also called
          Saving Throw. Grenades, mines, and force powers have a set DC that
          you must beat to avoid or reduce damage. Your saving throw includes
          a 1d20 die roll + save type rating.

Melee-    Hand-to-hand type fighting with weapons.

Range-    Attacks using blaster-type weapons.

CH-       Critical Hit, a hit that can double the damage.

CT-       Critical Threat, a weapon's ability to cause a Critical Hit (CT is 
          normally a 20 based on 1d20 roll, but can be increased to 19-20 or 
          more by weapon or feats).

LS-       Light side, being nice and noble.

DS-       Dark side, being self-serving and mean.


===========================================
CHARACTER BUILD:

The following character build is good for new players. After you gain some
play experience, you will probably want to try some different builds.

----------------------------
Starting Class (using Sentinel instead of Guardian):

Jedi Sentinels and Guardians gain BAB and Saves at the same rate. At level 15,
a Sentinel has one less Feat and 30 less VP, but he has 36 more Skill Points
and 30 more FP. Also, the Sentinel's Force Immunity (Fear/Stun/Paralysis) 
can be more helpful than the Guardian's Force Jump.

Build up as Sentinel to level 15 and then go Jedi Weapon Master for the 
remaining levels. 

Sentinel: 8 VP, 3 SP/level, +bonuses
   Class Skills: Awareness, Computer Use, Persuade, Security, Stealth, Treat
                 Injury

With the recommended Attributes, your character can have the following minimum
statistics at character level 15:

 VP = (8 norm + 2 CON + 1 Toughness) x 15 lvls                  = 165 VP
 FP = 40 Force Sensitive + ((6 norm + 4 WIS + 2 CHA) x 15 lvls) = 220 FP

---------------------------
Prestige Class

After you reach level 15 and have high light or dark side points, you can talk
to Kreia and switch to a Jedi prestige class. Save your level ups after the 
15th until you get the prestige class option (from talking to Kreia). 

Note: Your character advances to the next level automatically, so it's best 
to go to prestige class immediately upon gaining level 15.

Jedi Weapon Master: 10 VP, 6 FP, 1 SP/level, +bonuses
   Class Skills: Awareness, Demolitions, Persuade, Treat Injury
   Bonus Feats: Greater Prestige Sense, Deflect, Increase Melee Damage 1
   Gains one feat every other level.
   Gains one Force Power at every level.
   Access to all the advanced combat feats.

With at least 6 levels of Weapon Master, your character can have the 
following minimum stats:

 VP = 165 (Sentinel) + 60 = 225
 FP = 220 (Sentinel) + 36 = 256

Equipment can greatly increase the FP amount through WIS and CHA bonuses. You
can also increase your FP amount through your talks with Kreia and Visas. At
the end of the game, with your attribute and equipment increases, your
character can have 500+ VP and 500+ FP. By completing most of the available
quests (not all), my character ended up at level 25 during the end game.

---------------------------
Attributes:

Strength (STR): Represents physical power. Each increase in STR mod increases 
melee damage and chance to hit (attack) by +1, which is important for 
characters who use close-combat weapons (vibroblades, swords, lightsabers).

Dexterity (DEX): Represents agility and reflexes. Each increase in DEX mod
increases ranged attack (blasters) and increases a character's Defense 
(DC) rating by +1, making him harder to hit. 

Constitution (CON): Represents health and resiliency. Each CON mod increases
the character's VP by one per level. This is important for all characters 
and classes. Also, a higher CON is required for many of the better implants.

Intelligence (INT): Represents knowledge and reasoning. A high Intelligence 
adds modifiers to the number of points a character has to spend on essential 
skills. Not required for this character build. You have to have INT 14 to get
extra Skill Points per level up.

Wisdom (WIS): Represents willpower and perception. Each WIS mod increases
the character's FP by one per level. The force powers of a Jedi with high 
WIS are also much harder to resist. Later in the game, you can gain the feat
Battle Precognition, which will add your WIS mod to your defense.

Charisma (CHA): Represents personality and the ability to lead. Each CHA mod 
increases the character's FP by one per level. The force powers of a Jedi with
high CHA are also much harder to resist.  It is also central to any persuasive
talker. 

Your base attributes start at 8 and you will receive 30 points to add to your
six attributes.

Point Cost

 8-14 = 1 point per increase
15-16 = 2 points per increase
17-18 = 3 points per increase

You get a +1 bonus for each 2 points over 10 for each attribute. You get to
increase one attribute each 4th level (6 increases by level 24).

      Start  End   Start Bonuses
STR  - 12    12    +1 Attack and +1 Damage with melee weapons**
DEX  - 12    12    +1 DC, +1 Reflex saves, and +1 Attack for ranged**
CON  - 14    16    +2 VP/level and +2 Fortitude saves (increases are 
                      retroactive)
INT  - 12    12    +1 SP/level
WIS  - 14    18    +2 FP/level, +2 Will saves, and makes Force power
                      use stronger (increases are retroactive)
CHA  - 14    14    +2 FP/level, +2 Persuasion, and makes Force power 
                      use stronger

Notes: 

I increase the CON to allow for better implants later. There are some good
good implants that require CON 16 or 18.

With a maximized light side rating, your character gets a mastery bonus:
  - Guardian/Weapons Master gets STR+3
  - Sentinel/Watchman gets CON+3
  - Consular/Master gets WIS+3.

Also, during the game, you can get a WIS+1 upgrade from T3-M4, if you repair
him successfully three times (requires 20+ Repair and Influence). 

---------------------------
Skills:

Note: In addition to the stated uses of skills, all the skills but Persuade 
      also determine what you can build using a workbench or lab station. Your 
      main character's Repair skill is used to determine how well you can break
      down items. Whichever character you choose to create items is the skills
      used for that (so pick your character with the highest required skill).

Awareness - Spot objects, mines, or enemies hidden by stealth. At least one 
member of party should have medium rating (6-9). Related to WIS.

Computer Use - Slice computers with computer spikes to disable turrets, disable
shields, or flood rooms with gas. At least one member of party should have high
rating (10+). Related to INT.

Demolitions - Set, recover, or disarm mines. At least one member of party 
should have high rating. Related to INT.

Persuade - Main player only. More dialog options. Useful, somewhat.

Repair - Repair and reprogram droids by using repair parts. Your main 
character's repair skill is also used to determine how well you can breakdown 
items at a workbench. Droids need this for self repair, so go high for them. 
Related to INT.

Security - Open locks and security doors. You can bash open most locks (at 
risk of breaking some items inside). T3-M4 and Bao_Dur are good for this. 
Related to INT.

Stealth - Use stealth type devices (belts). Can do most tasks while in stealth
mode. High points not necessary. Put 1 pt into Stealth at start to get option 
to wear stealth generator. Related to DEX.

Treat Injury - Improves amount of healing when using medpacs. Helpful early in
game. Related to WIS.

Note: All classes receive 4x their normal amount of skill points at Character
      Creation. Also, each class skill maximum is your level +3. Cross-class 
      skills can only be one half of (your current level +3) and cost two 
      points for each increase (thanks to TCalanis for correction here).

Note: Slicing computers and repairing droids have a base cost, which is the
      cost for someone with no repair/computer skill. For every 4 points you
      have in the required skill, you reduce the base cost by 1.

---------------------------
Feats (8 available through Sentinel 15, 5 through Weapons Master 7):

Choose to go either as a single or dual lightsaber wielder (using double-blade
lightsaber is same as dual-wielding). Note that some feats improve attacks 
while lowering your DC at the same time. Also, some feats are always applied
(passive combat feat), while others are only in effect when you choose them
during combat (active combat feat). Flurry, Power Attack, and Critical Strike
are active combat feats, and you should maximize only one progression of
them and do not select the others as feats. Also note that higher Attack 
ratings mean that you hit more often, and is especially useful for dual weapons
users, who have Attack penalties.

Single weapon (always applied when using single, one-handed weapon):

_ Dueling                            [DC +1, Attack +1]

          penalty by +2/0.

------------------------------------
Best Armor:

For armor, the DC number is the amount of Defense added to character's base DC
of 10, and the Dex number is the amount of allowable character's DEX mod 
allowed for Defense. High DEX characters can lose some Defense when using some
medium or heavy armors. A number such as 10/- means that the armor will protect
you from the first 10 points of that type of damage per hit.

===========================================
GAMEPLAY NOTES:

--------------------------
General:

* Quick-save often (F4); and quick-load if needed (F5).
* Save in different slots, such as one for beginning of each planet.
* Use the Spacebar to pause the game.
* Be sure to explore all areas on all maps (look for doors to other areas).
* Read your journal to see status of quests.
* Read any datapads you pick up. They usually give strong hints about what you
  need to do to get through the area. Reread datapads by looking at them in 
  your inventory.
* Use computer consoles to view rooms and gather data.
* Activate disabled droids to fight for you (often not worth the trouble) but
  does give some extra XP, even if there are no enemies left to fight.
* Pazaak and Swoop racing are just sideline entertainment.
* Look for people and aliens with names. They often have information you need
  or additional quests for you.
* Flash mines only stun and can't open locked doors or containers.
* To level up, you must have current level x 1000 XP to reach the next level,
  so it takes more for each new level.
* Use "Solo" mode to scout with a single character.
* For a better view of your surroundings, press the Caps Lock key.

--------------------------
Team Members:

* Build up team member's skills, feats, and force powers to compliment your 
  own.
* Give some team members at least one point in stealth so that they can 
  use stealth equipment.
* You can see all available party members' equipment screens while on the
  Ebon Hawk. 
* HK-47 can become a team member if you find and install all of his parts.
  However, he is not necessary.
* T3-M4 is a moving upgrade bench
* Give your Jedi members different colored lightsabers to help remember who 
  has what (change the colors on the workbench).

 Kreia      - Peragus. You will need to talk to her often to learn more about
              the Force (gives you bonuses). She can also upgrade your special
              lightsaber crystal later in the game (several times). Also, 
              whenever she is part of your party, you get an XP bonus (~7%).

 Atton Rand - Peragus. Has ability to keep fighting while any other party
              member is still up. You can also get a Will+1 increase from him
              when you talk about reading his thoughts.

 T3-M4      - Prologue, Peragus. The same from KOTOR 1. He is also a portable
              workbench. Oh, T3 has a message from Carth and Bastila if you
              can get influence with him for advanced repairs. If you can 
              repair him three time (takes Repair 24), you can get a WIS+1
              boost.

 Bao-Dur    - Telos. He has unique ability to destroy shields and force fields,
              and he has a huge amount of skill points.

 Handmaiden - Telos, Hidden Base. Male characters ONLY. Spar with her onboard
              Ebon Hawk at your levels 10, 14, and 18. You can also get the 
              Battle Precognition feat from Handmaiden in which your WIS mod 
              is added to your DC (talk to her about fighting moves and the
              Enchani style of fighting when it shows).

 Disciple   - Dantooine, Enclave Sublevel. Female characters ONLY. He is also
              a portable lab station.

 Visas Marr - Ebon Hawk. After you get to 1/4 light or dark side, watch her
              cut-scene with Darth Nihilous, then the next time you enter your
              ship, she will appear. Defeat her and she's yours. Talk to her
              some afterward to gain influence, and possibly Force Insight
              (add WIS mod to Defense).

 Mandalore  - Dxun/Onderon. He's a powerful fighter using blaster rifles. As a
              side quest with him in your party, go find some of the scattered
              Mandalorians on the different planets. (He was also in KOTOR 1
              under a different name.)

 HK-47      - Ebon Hawk. The same from KOTOR 1. Requires that you find four
              missing HK components, then repair (which doesn't require skill).
              He talks about a quest to find HK-50 droid production plant, but
              that doesn't seem to exist in this version of game.

 Mira       - Nar Shaddaa. Requires that you be Light side or Neutral. If you
              get Mira, then you cannot get Hanharr. Whenever Mira is the 
              selected character, your party will not set off any mines. Also,
              Mira has a wrist rocket launcher (like Boba Fett), and you can
              make rockets for her at a workbench.

 Hanharr    - Nar Shaddaa. Requires that you be Dark Side. If you get Hanharr
              then you cannot get Mira.

 G0-T0      - Nar Shaddaa. I didn't find him any more helpful than T3-M4.

You can turn Atton, Bao-Dur, Disciple, Handmaiden, and Mira to Jedi (if you
have good influence with them). They have unique requirements as well:

-----------------------
Gaining Influence-

 Atton-      Atton likes to be respected and taken seriously. He has trust
             issues, so almost every line that goes "I trust you" will be
             accepted. Learn his secret at Nar Shaddaa, then talk to him about
             his past.

 Bao-Dur-    Gaining influence with Bao-Dur is entirely dependent on him
             being in the party to see your actions. You cannot increase your
             influence with him through general conversation on the Ebon
             Hawk.  

 Disciple-   He likes the Republic and the Jedi, so all of your conversations
             need to support both. 

 Handmaiden- Most of your influence with her is won in conversation, and then
             you get the most by sparring with her and winning three times
             (at Exile levels 10, 14, and 18).

 Mira-       The best way to get Influence with Mira is to have an Awareness
             11. Ask about why she doesn't kill, follow the Awareness line.
             Then take her to Nar Shaddaa, near the Cantina.

For any of these that you will convert to Jedis, be sure to not level them up
too much: hold some of their level-ups to use after they become Jedis. Below 
are some locations for gaining influence with certain characters in your
party:

 Dantooine

  Mechanic- Kreia or Bao-Dur
  Atmospheric Sensors- Bao-Dur
  Mercenaries- Handmaiden, Kreia
  Malfunctioning Droid- T3-M4
  Salvager- Visas or Kreia
  Akerre's Hydrospanner- All
  Vrook- Kreia

 Nar Shaada

  Repairing the Airspeeder- Atton or Bao-Dur
  Sick Man- Atton, Bao-Dur, or Kreia
  Guy Asks for Credits- Kreia
  Guy Getting Mugged- Kreia
  Droid Merchant- T3-M4

 Dxun

  Mandalorian with Permacrete Detonator- Handmaiden, Bao-Dur, or HK-47
  Bounty Hunters- Mira or Hanharr

 Onderon Port

  Bounty Hunter Attack- Mira
  Side with Anda- Mira, Visas, or Kreia
  Side with Vaklu- Visas
  Cantina Attack- HK-47, Hanharr, or Visas
  Starport Visa- Atton or Bao-Dur
  Droid Merchant- G0-T0
  Port Guard Captain- HK-47, Atton, or Kreia

-------------------------
Light Side vs. Dark Side:

* The higher your LS score, the less FP it takes for using LS Force powers,
  which can be significant later in game.
* To get max LS points, always choose to save lives, avoid fights, refuse 
  rewards, and give people extra money.
* One DS deed can offset several LS deeds.
* Some DS points early in game is not significant; you can easily make up
  for those later.
* With a maximized light side rating, your character gets a mastery bonus:
  - Guardian/Weapons Master gets STR+3
  - Sentinel/Watchman gets CON+3
  - Consular/Master gets WIS+3.

-------------------------
Resisting Dark Side powers:

As shown below, high WIS and CHA modifiers and high Fortitude will help protect
you from Sith attacks:

Force Suppression/Breach
                  Equipment that makes you immune to mind-affecting attacks
Wound/Choke/Kill- DC5 + level + Fortitude + WIS mod + CHA mod
Slow- 		  DC5 + level + Will + WIS mod + CHA mod
                  Equipment that makes you immune to mind-affecting attacks
Affliction-       DC20
                  Equipment that makes you immune to mind-affecting attacks
Plague-           no save (armor restricted)
Fear/Horror/Insanity- 
                  DC5 + level + Will + WIS mod + CHA mod
                  Equipment that makes you immune to mind-affecting attacks
Shock/Force Lightning/Force Storm- 
                  DC5 + level + Will + WIS mod + CHA mod reduces damage by 1/2
                  Shields that protect against electrical damage
Drain Life/Death Field- 
                  DC5 + level + Fortitude + WIS mod + CHA mod reduces 
                    damage by 1/2

Any equipment that improves your saving throws help against these powers.

--------------------------
Battle:

* Vibroblades work better than blasters against shields (early in game).
* Ion-based weapons and grenades are best against droids and shields.
* Early in the game, you will probably get more hits by using normal attack 
  rather than choosing active combat feats (to avoid Attack penalties).
* Take time to activate shields and apply stimulants or Force powers for each
  character at the beginning of tough battles.
* For tough fights, gang up on one enemy at a time.
* You can instantly use items from your inventory screen while paused.
* Before you have good Force powers, use grenades to soften up enemies before
  closing in for melee.
* Use concussion, cryo, or adhesive grenades to hold enemy and then throw
  frag, plasma, or sonic grenades to damage.
* With advanced Force powers, you can take out entire rooms without using
  weapons: use Stasis to hold or slow down all, then use Wave twice to damage,
  and repeat.
* You cannot change armor while in a battle.
* Wearing armor will prevent you from using some Force powers.
* Downed party members will revive at end of current battle.
* If all of party dies, load your last quick-save or auto-save, whichever was
  later, and try different tactics.
* To change opponents or order of combat selections, click on Cancel Combat
  and then make new selections.

--------------------------
Ebon Hawk:

* Talk to team members to have them make items (if you have less than 10):
  - T3-M4 creates programming spikes
  - Mira creates grenades
  - Mandalore creates stimulants 
  - G0-T0 creates security tunnelers 
  - Disciple creates healing pacs
  - Bao-Dur creates shields (only before you get a lightsaber)
* Talk to team members to gain influence.
* Talk to Kreia about your special crystal (without it installed in your
  lightsaber), to get her to upgrade it, and do this more than once.
* Spar with Handmaiden three times.

Workbenches:

At workbenches, you use components to build new items. You can build most 
range, melee, armor, and lightsaber upgrades (not crystals), with the required 
amount of specified skill. Use a character with the highest skill to build 
the items. Your character's Repair level is always used for breakdown (except
when Exile is not in party).

At a skill of 20 Repair, your ability to break down items becomes 100%
efficient. With a high Repair, you can sometimes get hundreds of components 
from breaking down an item.

Note, some upgrades add requirements to the weapon you add them to, such as the
Vibration Cell requires that you have the feat Weapon Focus (Melee) to use the
weapon with it attached.

Note: The Miner's Outfit and Jedi Robes are not actually "armor," so most
upgrades won't work with them. You can use some underlays such as as
Environment Underlay and the Biorestorative Underlay.

Refer to the "KOTOR 2 Workbench Items Creation Guide" for more information.

===========================================
COMBAT BASICS:

----------------------------
D&D Die Roll System:

The rules for KOTOR are based on the 3rd Edition of Dungeon & Dragons (D&D),
with some modifications.

Generally each player gets one turn per round, and order of action (for the 
entire current conflict) is determined by a character’s initiative. The number
of attacks a player can make per round is based on enhancements such as 
“Speed.” The following is highly simplified and only gives a general idea about
how combat works. One 20-sided die is used (1d20); that is, the computer 
chooses a random number from 1 to 20.

--Determine who gets to hit first:

    Initiative throw (1d20) plus DEX bonus = Initiative. Order of attack is 
     highest to lowest.

--Determine if a hit is successful (Attack roll):

    Attack = Attack roll (1d20) + BAB + STR bonus (DEX for ranged) 
     +/- Combat, Force, etc. modifiers

    Defense Class (DC) = Base DC 10 + Armor bonuses + Equipment bonuses + 
     DEX modifier +/- Combat, Force, etc. modifiers

    When Attack >= DC, you get a hit (which does NOT determine the amount of 
    damage). 

--Determine how much damage the hit causes (Damage Roll):

    Damage = Weapon die roll + STR bonus (DEX for ranged) + Weapon bonus 
     +/- Combat, Force, etc. modifiers of you and opponent

Note: Feats, circumstances, and special items can affect all the above.
      In KOTOR 2, the Weapon Finesse: Lightsabers feat will allow you to use
      the DEX instead of STR bonus for lightsaber attacks (thanks to VaMinion
      for correction here).

A Critical Hit is an Attack roll of 20 (or could be more based on equipment and
feats in use). When a Critical Hit is rolled, a new Attack roll takes place. If
that Attack roll is a hit, then the following Damage roll amount is doubled
(or more based on equipment and feat bonuses).

--------------------------
Saving Throws:

Certain hazards use Saving throws, meaning that the opponent or device gets
a 1d20 die throw and the victim gets a die throw plus any saving modifiers.
So, a higher saving throw helps to reduce or prevent damage. Each is affected 
by a physical attribute: DEX for Reflex, CON for Fortitude, and WIS for Will.

 - Fortitude saves against disease, poison, or paralysis
 - Reflex saves against damage from mines or grenades
 - Will saves against mental influence or Force mind attacks

A level 15 Sentinel will have the following saving throws, with the recommended
attributes:

     No Equipment
Fort   -  12 
Refl   -  10
Will   -  9

These numbers can be increased with equipment and weapons.

--------------------------
Base Attack Bonus (BAB):

The BAB is the Attack bonus your character gets as you level up. A BAB of +5
means that the character gets a +5 Attack bonus. In KOTOR II, all characters
gain one BAB per level.

Note: KOTOR BAB does not follow regular D&D rules: you will only have one
attack per round, but a round is only 3 seconds instead of 6. See the next
section.

--------------------------
Attacks per Round:

You always get one attack.
Flurry will give an extra attack (with DC and Attack penalties).
Using two weapons or a double-bladed weapon will give an extra attack (with 
  Attack penalty).
Using Knight Speed will give an extra attack (with DC bonus).
Using Master Speed will give an extra two attacks (with DC bonus).

Therefore, maximum attacks per round is 5. (One from base, one from flurry, 
one from two weapons, two from Master speed.)

-------------------------
Dueling vs. Two-Weapons:

With maximized character stats at a level 20 character build:

Dueling maxed = Attack+3, DC+3
Max of 4 attacks/round

Two-weapons maxed = Attack 0/-2
Max of 5 attacks/round

Defense, using Master Flurry and Knight Speed = 
  10 base + 6 Jedi Defense + 5 armor + 5 DEX - 1 Flurry + 4 Knight Speed = 29
Two-Weapon = 29             
Dueling    = 29 +3 = 32 (10.3% less chance of being hit)

Attack = BAB 20 + 5 STR + 5 weapon + 1 feats = 31
Two-Weapon Main = 31 (4 attacks)
Dueling = 31 + 3 Dueling = 34 (4 attacks)(~10% greater chance of hitting)

Two-Weapon left = 31 - 2 = 29 (1 attack)(~15% less chance of hitting)

So, Two-weapons vs. Dueling = 4 10% weaker attacks = 40% greater chance that
                                                     one attack will miss
                              1 extra attack with 15% greater chance of missing

Summary: Two-weapons are better against weaker opponents and Dueling is better
against strong opponents, most noticeably early in game. Not enough overall 
difference between the two, so go with whatever you think looks better. 
However, at the higher levels (20+) the % difference between dueling and two-
weapon use becomes increasingly less, making dual weapons a better choice,
especially for the two sets of lightsaber upgrades.

--------------------------
Bugs Still in Program:

* Telos: Do NOT destroyed the Bumani Exchange Console and kill the guard. If
  you do, you cannot enter the area and will have to go back to previous a
  save or start a new game.

* G0-T0's Yatch: Do NOT destroy any utility droids before getting the
  Shutdown code.

* On Dantooine or in smoky areas, the game can slow to a crawl. This can be
  fixed by adding this line to the [Graphics Options] section in the
  swkotor2.ini file

    Disable Vertex Buffer Objects=1

* If program is too choppy, try disabling the Frame Buffer Effects or changing
  the levels of AA or Anistrophy.
