The KotOR collection should already be compatible with Windows 7, so I hope you didn't use the guide in this thread to install the games.

If you did, reinstall them without it, like you would any other program.

I installed it normally without any changes.

Try disabling the intro movies by renaming the files:
KotOR 1: biologo.bik; leclogo.bik; legal.bik
KotOR 2: leclogo.bik; legal.bik; ObsidianEnt.bik

In each case you can just change their file extension from "bik" to "bak" and they'll be skipped.

Use 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.

I uninstalled the program and started over. Didn't change the screen resolution. Ran great until I tried to go to Tatooine. Crashes. I checked the swkotor.ini file and the "Disable Vertex Buffer Objects=1" change was already there.

Check to see if the game is running on a single CPU core by alt-tabbing out and bring up Windows Task Manager. Go to "processes" and right-click on swkotor.exe. Select "set affinity" and see if only one CPU is checked. If they're all checked, that could be the source of your problem.

Very annoying; I'm trying to give KotOR2 another shot to play the latest version of TSLRCM, but now the game won't run. I'm using Windows 7 x64, SP1. I have the original, US, 4-CDs version of the game, and I reinstalled it, following your excellent and detailed advice, setting the installer for compatibility mode and admin privileges, then patching to 1.0b (with compatibility and admin), then installing the high quality music and movies, then installing TSLRCM 1.8.1 (with compatibility and admin), then installing a handful of reskins I use to the override. I also set the Dantooine lag fix line(wish I'd know that one years ago when I played KotOR1!) and set fullscreen=1 and my native res (1600x1200) in the .ini. Finally, I'm running the game in compatibility with admin.

It crashes immediately every time the LucasArts and Obsidian movies finish, just before the main menu should come up. I've tried removing those videos; the game still crashes before reaching the main menu. Digging around through this and other forums, it looks like the issue is that my new system uses Intel HD 4000 graphics; when I last tried KotOR2 on Win 7 it worked, but I was using an AMD video card. It doesn't seem like anyone has an answer for this one; the current Intel graphics drivers don't allow the user to set a "Flipping" preference, so that won't do it. Is there no way to run KotOR2 on a modern Intel video adapter?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I would use the configure option in the launcher to lower the resolution and see if it will launch then. If it doesn't, 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.

I tried taking the resolution all the way down to 800x600, and it still crashed.

When I tell the configuration app to scan my hardware, it says that the scan has failed. However, the details screen reads:

BUT:

I found that it will load and run (at least to the point of starting to move T3 around the Hawk) if I disable movies in the config. The game instantly crashes, however, if I try to turn on any AA or AF in the advanced graphics options. So, maybe my only option is to miss all the cutscenes? :/

Make sure 640x480 is supported in your graphics driver control panel.

Turn off frame buffer effects, grass, shadows and soft shadows.

Try turning on v-sync.

You might want to download and use the Vista fix. It shouldn't be necessary for Windows 7, but it won't hurt, either.

I actually did try out the Vista .dll last time, and it didn't fix it, either.

Yes, it does look like the Intel graphics driver doesn't list 640x480 as an option. So, I guess that's it? Any attempt to set the screen to that resolution crashes out the offending process... So, does that mean we're stuck unless and until Intel for some reason adds support for *lower* resolutions to their HD 4000 drivers? May be waiting a long time...

Is there no way that you can add a custom resolution in the driver control panel?

Hmm, okay, I've tried adding custom resolutions for 640x480 with 8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit color, but it still crashes (in fact, when I set the custom resolution to 8-bit color, it actually crashed at the Obsidian video instead of after it). I can set the refresh rate; I tried 60 Hz, but would something else be better for these .bik movies? There's another setting for "Timing Standards" with the options "GTF", "CVT", and "CVT-RB"; the default is "GTF." Should I mess with those? Should I mess with another setting for "Underscan Percentage"?

(Thank you for your feedback, this has been very helpful already!)

Given your desktop resolution, I think that you're a good candidate for the "high-quality" movie patch. Other than that, I'm not sure what else I can do to help. It certainly looks like you've installed the game correctly.

The Steam version should already be compatible with Windows 7. No compatibility fixes should be necessary, and could possibly bork your installation.

Although, it has been noted by others that one may have to install the latest (Windows 8 compatible) drivers for their graphics card to get the games working properly.

Hi there. I have a collector's edition of the game, and I'm unable to make a list of my system specs, as you wish :/

My problem is, that after 2-3 minutes, the game freezes. The music runs, speech is heard in the background - but the game just "stops".

I'm running with Windows 7 x64-bit, and it is a quite new "hightech"-computer. If you wish, I can come with more specifications - but I can't find a "launcher.exe"-file, neither the other one.

Sincerely yours,
Nicki.

The Collection DVDs lack the still-useful swconfig utility.

Which game are you having trouble with?

Hmm, AFAIK you can still make a spec report using dxdiag...
  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.

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.

It IS a high-end machine...
I don't know what's causing the problem.

Oh yeah I forgot one other thing, maybe you can find 'swkotor.ini' in your installation folder, and post what's in there.. but leave the [Keymapping].

By default, it's located in "C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\SWKotOR".

EDIT:
Oooh, found something here! [click meh]
and here: [click me too]

Hope that helps..

LF Jester Forum Veteran Helpful! 
@nicki-just:
1) You weren't kidding. Your PC's pretty uber. Since you have an Nvidia video card, getting the game to run well shouldn't be too much of a problem. Nvidia has traditionally been the best choice for these games.

2) If you could post your .ini like scramjetbooster suggested that would be great.


@Leo206:
1) GameVersion=v2.00.420 - This tells me that your game isn't patched for whatever reason. It should be v2.10.427.

2) I see no Dantooine lag fix under [Graphics Options]. This may or may not be necessary, but it's definitely worthwhile to give it a try. If it turns out you don't need it, simply change the 1 to a 0.

3) You have Intel HD graphics, so the general rule of thumb is to turn off all of the eye candy like anisotropy, antialiasing, frame buffer effects, shadows, soft shadows and grass. You should also check to see whether or not the game runs better with v-sync on.

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."

And I'm not done with the computer. I'm looking forward to another Asus GTX670, and 8 GB more of Corsair Dominator Platinum 1600 MHz CL8 Which will give me 16GB in total

1) Check to see if the game is running on a single core by alt-tabbing out of it, opening Task Manager, selecting the Processes tab and right-clicking on swkotor.exe. Select "set affinity" and see if just one or all of your CPU cores are checked. If they are all checked, set the game to run on a single core according to step 8 in post #2.

2) Make sure that 640x480 is on the list of supported resolutions in your Nvidia control panel. If it isn't (it isn't by default), add it using the customize option.

I'm not able to do as you said in step 1. It simply says, that the action is denied, whenever I press the "set affinity"-tab.

Furthermore, I have done as you said in step 2 - but should I set my screen, either ingame or on my desktop, as 640x480? Because that is a bit annoying to be honest...:/

Are you using an administrator's account?

You just need the driver to support 640x480 so the movies will run. You don't have to set your desktop resolution to it.

Yup, there is only this account on the computer

And the last sentence - what you're saying is, that if I have added 640x480 in Nvidia's controlprogram, that is enough? I don't need to actually use it, neither in the game or my desktop ?

Is "Show processes from all users" checked?

Is Task Manager being run as an administrator (it should be in an administrator account)?

Is swkotor.exe set to run as an administrator (XP SP2 compatibility mode should not be required)?

That should be enough.

640x480 support is required for the Bink movies to play.
