Might it be that my peragus file is corrupted or something since it works fine just before it starts to load the very game.
Does anyone have a similar problem?
Windows 7 Home Premium x64
4 GB ram
I am having similar problems too. I followed the instructions listed in the first & second posts very carefully, but I am still having the "KOTOR II has stopped working" crash, right after I start my first character. Generally it gets past the first loading screen after I'm done creating my Jedi, then it crashes.
My specs are similar as well:
Windows Home Premium x64
i3 Intel processor
Intel HD graphics (I believe that's what it's called? Could also be "Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD" -- I'm getting conflicting info between the online specs and what my laptop itself actually calls it. :P)
Managed to run KOTOR 1 just fine, after I turned the grass off. (Graphics weren't the best, but hey, portable KOTOR!) Could anyone help me with this?
EDIT: Hey, I got it working! After switching back to my original .EXE instead of the SecuROM one (I figured -- I've always gotten KOTOR 2 to work without the SecuROM exe, so why not,) I gave it another go.
This time I realized that it doesn't actually crash right after the first loading screen. It crashes when I reflexively try to click past the opening crawl. Anyway, I sat patiently through it instead of clicking this time, and actually managed to get into the game!
So it seems I don't have a problem after all. (Other than sheer impatience.) I'm not sure why skipping a movie (though it is a long-ish movie) would cause my game to crash, but I guess I'll be going carefully from now on...
Thanks anyway, guys. No doubt I'd be having worse problems if I hadn't followed your instructions from the start.
