Current Game: Mowing down neos with my M60

^What kind of card do you have? I've just been testing both of these games with an HD 6870 and the latest drivers (12.4), and, aside from the soft shadows option being greyed out (weird), they both ran great. No tweaking was necessary.

Never could get the DirectX Redistribution Pack to work. Would try and install, and it would get stuck on the Initialization screen.
Dont think it should be an issue though. After I installed KotOR, it said it detected that I Already had DirectX9.0c installed. Maybe its b/c I have an nVidia card and a gaming-oriented computer??
No idea why this wouldn't install. It's one of the first things I do when I install Windows.

One small issue is that my update did not work. It would not let me install update 1.0B. Is there a 1.0 I need to install first or something? I have the US version, and I thought that was with the Int. versions only.
Would like to get that update so I have an override folder and can start adding in all of my mods so my game is as complete as possible from the very start
Are you using the manual patch? Is it set to run in XP SP2 compatibility mode as an administrator? If it still isn't working, you may indeed have the UK version and you'll need to use those patches (there are two of them and you'll need to apply both).

Now I just need to fix my resolution. Very small box on my computer screen currently.
Though I have a question. If it needs to be in another thread, let me know, and ill delete and move it.
I need to do the high-res fix so that the game fills my whole screen. Currently it sits in a small box in the middle.
I looked, but I couldn't find one for 1920x1080.
Anyone have a link?
I have two of them:

1) Squizzy Resolution Patcher. Set your resolution to 1280x960 in-game. Move or rename your swkotor2.exe and Mss32.dll files. Extract the file in the link to KotOR 2's main folder, set the patcher to run in XP SP2 compatibility mode as an administrator and run it. Choose your resolution and click on "patch". Go into you swkotor2.ini file, set the width and height values to your resolution, save and exit.

2) Go to this page and download the HUD fix file for your particualr aspect ratio. In your case you'll want 16:9. Unzip it and put it in your Override folder. If you still can't patch your game, you can just make a new folder in KotOR 2's main directory and name it "Override" and it will work. The HUD will look stretched and fugly, but there really isn't any fix for that.

Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."
