1) Your game is not patched.

2) I see no Dantooine lag fix.


Did you follow the instructions in the second post of this thread?


"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."

Thanks for the help.

Okay I patched it, but it's still crashing right after I use the comp to override and kill the sith troopers on the Endar Spire.

It happens right after the comp gives the message "LOGGING OUT", then it shows some weird view of a Sith trooper on the floor, then the normal cursor pops up and I have to CTRL + ALT + DEL out.

No, you didn't.

You didn't patch the game until I told you to, nor did you apply the Dantooine lag fix, even after I told you to. Instead, you decided to second-guess me:

That fix applies to the entire game. Now either learn to follow instructions or go away.

Hey guys. I'm trying to get KOTOR2 to work. I'm running Windows 7. I followed the posted instructions to the letter and it did not work. I uninstalled and tried again; it still did not work. I create a character and get through the scrolling yellow text and the small cinematic of the Ebon Hawk drifting when the game proceeds to crash.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Try using the game's configuration utility to post your system specs:

  • If you're using Vista or Windows 7, go into your game folder, find "launcher.exe" and right-click on it. Select "properties", then "compatibility" and check the box beside "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and select "Windows XP (Service Pack 2)". Then check the box next to "Run this program administrator" and hit "OK". (EDIT by Q)
  • Bring up the launcher menu for Kotor 1 or 2 (by running "launcher.exe").
  • Click on "Configure".
  • Click the "Scan Hardware" button on the lower center of the window.
  • Click "Yes" to continue.
  • Click "Details" to view your system specs.
  • Click "Save Report" and save the file to your desktop.
  • Whenever you post your problem, open the file you just saved and copy and paste the contents to your post.
You can leave out the keymapping and everything after that.

It looks like your game was not successfully patched.

Hey everyone,

So new to the forums, but not to the game. Always played on console though for both. Never had a good PC before now. (Asus G53SX laptop;NVidia GTX560M 2GB Card; 2630QM 2nd-gen i7, 8GB RAM, Blu-Ray Super Multi drive, Full 1920x1080 resolution screen)

Anyways, I just want to clarify some things.

Say I buy KOTOR and TSL for PC.
I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit edition. Has all current updates
I will still need to run the patches, correct?
As in it won't be something where I can just pop in the game and go at it.
Other concern was if my 1920x1080 native resolution was going to cause a problem with gameplay. I was worried that if I tried to "blow-it-up" to fit my resolution, the game would look horrible. Didnt know if there was a high resolution mod fix for this. Did my best to read through everything, but didnt see it.

Second (unrelated) part to the this question is if anyone knew where to find Team Gizka's work? I used to follow it back in the day when I dreamed of having a good PC/Laptop. But now that they seem to have disbanded, I can't seem to find any download links for their mods that work (specifically the HK planet quest). Hopefully someone could point me in the right direction? I was planning on stockpiling those mods into a folder so that by the time the games got here (ordered online) I would be ready to add in stuff before my first play through.

thanks in advance. Can't wait to relive some of my childhood memories of playing these games! Really glad that there are still those who are still playing and enjoying older games like this as much as I do. Still love playing me some X-Wing Alliance!!!

Yeah, you'll have to patch the games. Just follow the instructions in the second post of this thread and you should be fine. Since you have an Nvidia GPU the problems should be minimal.

As far as your screen resolution is concerned, check out the Widescreen Gaming Forum. Their UniWS utility will work on KotOR 1, and there is a patcher by Squ1zZy for KotOR 2. Don't forget the HUD files for both games.

Thanks for the quick reply!
Had some unexpected time (insomnia = no sleep sometimes) to read through, and it seems like you've been a huge help to everyone here.

I did see how a few members were able to just do the XP Comp. install on Windows 7, and it worked fine.
I may have missed it, but any word on why some just needed to do a XP Comp. install, and others needed to do a full patch?

Definitely loving this nVidia-powered computer.
Had it a few months for some advanced algorithm modeling for mathematics, and finally got into games. Got it to run Crysis 2 in full specs with a 35fps rate. Not bad!
Hoping to get some spectacular results with KOTOR and TSL.

Anywor don my second question though Q? About Team Gizka and their downloads?

Those few who had no problems running unpatched games on Vista/7 must be a very few indeed. Just patch the games.

All trolling aside, TSLRP ended up being much ado about (almost) nothing. Look no further than TSLRCM for restored content. It is actively supported and is still being refined.

Definitely planning patching from the get go. Reading through all of this just made me curious how some (such as Astro) got the game to work on at least Windows 7 with no real modifications necessary. Im not the most computer savvy person, but I do take an interest in it. Seemed interesting to me.


And that is a fantastic link! Loved reading through (most) of those pages!
Can't wait to have the full 1.8v mod installed after I get the game. Going to start it right off the bat with it.

Thanks for all the help Q! Ill let you know if I have any problems

So I did the entire install exactly as described. About to do my first run.

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??

EDIT: ~~ IT WORKS!!

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

Got about 10 minutes into Peragus and then exited out myself.
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?

^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.

No idea why this wouldn't install. It's one of the first things I do when I install Windows.

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).

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.

I got the games running and TSL works fine, however in K1, I cannot move with WASD. I have researched this issue and unlike the other people who experience it, I cannot move right from the start of the game. I have reinstalled and the issue still remains, any ideas?

I've had this problem myself. I don't know if this will work for you, but after restarting the computer a few times, it mysteriously went away.

Got it too work! I restarted the computer a few times, created a new character, saved, loaded and I could finally move.

Cool.

God, these games are quirky.

Hey, I seem to be having a problem with KotOR 2 where right after the character creation and first intro video that the game crashes and I have done everything to try to fix this, most of what consists on this thread. If it helps, I am running Windows 7 and I am NOT using a disk version of the game. Help would be GREATLY appreciated

Try using the game's configuration utility to post your system specs:

  • If you're using Vista or Windows 7, go into your game folder, find "launcher.exe" and "swconfig.exe". For each file, right-click on it, select "properties", then "compatibility", check the box beside "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and select "Windows XP (Service Pack 2)". Then check the box next to "Run this program administrator" and hit "OK". (EDIT by Q)
  • Bring up the launcher menu for Kotor 1 or 2 (by running "launcher.exe").
  • Click on "Configure".
  • Click the "Scan Hardware" button on the lower center of the window.
  • Click "Yes" to continue.
  • Click "Details" to view your system specs.
  • Click "Save Report" and save the file to your desktop.
  • Whenever you post your problem, open the file you just saved and copy and paste the contents to your post.
You can leave out the keymapping and everything after that.

And if you don't have the disk version, which one is it?

1) Your game isn't patched.

2) You need 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.
3) You need to set Fullscreen=1 under both [Display Options] and [Graphics Options].

OK, where's the first part?

Not accusing you of anything, but if you're using a crack, it won't work on an Intel mobile chipset.

Alright,
So I was pretty sure I installed the game according to your instructions, but KOTOR 2 still doesn't work. ("SWKOTORII has stopped working" after the into movies.) I'm not terribly computer literate, so it's VERY possible that I made a mistake. Here are my system specs:

I don't know why it didn't work the first time I ran the patcher.

Unfortunately, the game still doesn't work, though now it lets me get all the way through character creation again, like when I first put in the game. (After I started trying to fix it, it would quit after the intro vids.) It also quits when trying to change the screen resolution in the options menu. (I don't know if that's important.)

Thanks for posting your specs.

Are you using the updated swkotor2.exe from SecuROM? If so, try using the original swkotor2.exe from the patch (this is why I caution people to not overwrite it in my guide).

Well, I had tried both, (And I did keep the original .exe. I may not understand computers, but I understand English. )

Update: I've reinstalled the game, again (and probably more accurately) following the instructions from post 2. This time I was able to get the game to run (with the original .exe) by setting textures to "low", enabling v-sync, and disabling movies. Changing any of these options causes a crash.

Any ideas why this is? The movies play just fine when they're enabled, but then the game won't load. (Or rather it loads, then crashes on launch.)
Shouldn't setting the textures higher just make it run slower? Why would that make it crash?

Anyway, I've been reading over these forums, and it looks like a lot of people are having trouble running this game on Intel GPUs. I'm wondering: was ANYONE able to run Kotor 2 properly with a chipset similar to mine? My graphics driver is quite new, and there is no "Blit" setting.

Also, would installing a new graphics card fix this problem or make it worse? Are there specific types of cards to avoid?

It sounds like your graphics drivers are having trouble switching back and forth between different resolutions. Try messing around with the different scaling options, and make sure that 640x480 is supported. You could

And, yes, getting a graphics card would help tremendously. Since the KotOR games are so old, even a cheap one would still be able to run the games at their highest settings. Since you have a reasonably powerful CPU, a modern graphics card would be a sensible upgrade. If you're in the US, I could find you one that would suit your needs without breaking your budget.

Alright, I'm new here and I just got the game. I followed your directions as best I could, but it would not let me update. It gives the message: "old file not found. However, a file of the same name was found.no update done since file contents do not match."
I just bought the game within the US so I assume it is the US version. No matter what tips I follow from the forums my game still crashes right after the character creation and scrolling intro. I'm sorry, you've probably solved this problem a million times by now on the forums, but I can't seem to get it. Any help would be appreciated.
