Make sure to set CPU affinity to a single core.

How can I do this when the game wont even start up? I thought I had to let it start then in the task manager change it?

Alternate way to set CPU affinity to a single core: (Kudos to SteveF, he posted this method here. It's also pinned by Q in the second post of this thread actually.)
  1. Find your swkotor shortcut in the desktop.
  2. Right click on it, then click Properties.
  3. In the "Target:" box, replace everything there with this:
    Code:
    C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /C start "SWKOTOR" /D "C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic\" /high /affinity 1 "C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic\swkotor.exe"
  4. Again, in the "Start in:" box, replace everything there with this:
    C:\Windows\System32
  5. Click OK. You're done.
  6. Everytime you want to play the game, you must click this shortcut. (Duh...)

To find out what Graphic Card you use, do this:
  1. Press WIN+R on the keyboard (or Start->Run),
  2. the 'Run' dialog then appears,
  3. then type 'dxdiag' without the quotation marks,
  4. the Dxdiag window will appear,
  5. Click 'Save All Information...', save the file in the desktop,
  6. Open it, just copy the entire 'System Information' section,
  7. Scroll down, skip the Dxdiags section, then copy the 'Display Device' section.
