Which OS are you using? The reason I ask is that swconfig is too old to properly ID newer versions of Windows.


"They should rename the team to the Washington Government Sucks. Put Obama on the helmet. Line the entire walls of the stadium with the actual text of the ACA.
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."

Windows XP Service pack 3....


Edit: oops, it says 2000 since i was trying various compatibility modes.

And also, service pack 3 is not at fault, i tried this the first time with 2, and it had the same outcome.

Are you setting CPU affinity every time you launch the game? if not, you'll absolutely have to do this:

Then return to the game and see what happens ^/_\^

Just remember that you'll need to do this every time you start the game.
Try that first.

If you're still having trouble, try the Dantooine lag fix:

  • When you find it, just double-click on the file to open it in Notepad.
  • Scroll down the file until you find the Graphics Options
  • Under the last line ("last line" as in the last line of the list of entries under "Graphics Options", NOT the last line of "swkotor(2).ini), add "Disable Vertex Buffer Objects=1", without the quotes.
  • Goto File, then Save.
Lastly, try turning V-sync on from either the in-game menu or the configuration utility.

The dantooine lag fix fixed it, thanks!

You're welcome.

That fix is absolutely essential for DX10 GPUs.
