Is "Show processes from all users" checked in the task manager?

Alright I just set the affinity, and nothing seemed to happen. I started it up again, made a quick character, and then it went to the cutscene, "A long time ago...". I click to try to skip and it says "...has stopped working...". Thanks Evil Q for the help, and do you have any suggestions?

@Rhino: That Intel Cantiga chipset should run the game, but it requires that you set the "flipping policy" to "blit" under "3D Options" in the graphics driver control panel. Have you done that? If not, there are links to directions on how to do so in the second post of this thread. If you find that you can't get into your graphics driver control panel, then you'll have to reinstall your drivers even if they say that they're up to date. There is a utility on the Intel website that will detect your chipset and direct you to the appropriate drivers to download and install.

Then start the game and from the main menu hit "Options" and then "Graphics Options", set the resolution to 1024x768, hit "apply" and exit the game.

Then you'll need to set Fullscreen=1 and the resolution (Width and Height) to the same values under both [Display Options] and [Graphics Options] in the swkotor2.ini file. KotOR 2 supports 1280x768 natively, so I would try that because it will fit your screen better. When you're done, it should look something like this:

Have you tried installing the latest drivers for your chipset/GPU from Intel?

Using the in-game options menu:
1) Try turning v-sync on.

2) Try a different resolution like 1280x1024

3) Take texture quality down to low and turn off all eye candy like antialiasing, anisotropic filtering, frame buffer effects, shadows, soft shadows and grass, and if it runs, then try turning them back on one at a time to see what works and what doesn't.

God Damnit. It got the first scene, with the droid waking up, working for about 5 seconds and then crashed.

You know what? Don't worry about it guys. I'm just gonna let this one go.

You're going to have to reinstall the game according to the large-print instructions at the top of the second post in this thread.

According to your swconfig report you haven't done the Dantooine lag fix; Fullscreen still =0, etc, etc...

EDIT: You also omitted the first part of that report that lists your hardware and drivers, which can come in handy.

Looks OK. Is the game running?


"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."

Not really... I have the same problem as before. I can get to the menu, create a random character (and I even tried creating a custom class once) and then I get to the first cutscene and I click (to skip it) and it stops working. I even tried not clicking once. However, I did just recently see something that might help. I went to my little Windows button on the bottom left, all programs, lucasarts, Star Wars Kotor 2, and then right under a file that makes me play the game was a file that says 'Update Star Wars....'. Should I use this update?

No. If you followed the directions in post #2, then the game should be patched to the latest version.

Yes. You'll need to go into the game's options menu and under "graphics options" you'll need to turn off all of the eye candy. Set anisotropic filtering and antialiasing to 0, turn off frame buffer effects, shadows, soft shadows and grass, and set texture detail to "low". I would also try turning v-sync on. Most of these options are in the "advanced" sub-menu. Make sure to hit "apply" when you're done turning everything off. Once you get the game running, you can try turning this stuff back on one at a time to see what works and what doesn't.

After that, I would go ahead and change the width value to 1280 under both [Display Options] and [Graphics Options] in the swkotor2.ini file (don't forget to save!). 1280x768 is the only widescreen resolution that KotOR 2 supports natively and it will fit your screen better.

Beyond that, if it still won't run, I suspect that it might be a scaling problem, which is fixed by going into your graphics driver's control panel and choosing a different scaling option. You might even have to create a custom resolution of 1280x768, or, less likely, change your desktop resolution to 1280x768. Just play around with the different options, always one at a time, so you'll know what you did to finally get it to work.

OK, let's just start over by uninstalling the game. With the Best of PC version, installation would go like this. Make sure that you're using an administrator's account when you do this:
1) Explore your installation disk and look for "setup.exe". Right-click on it, select "Properties", then "Compatibility", set it to run in XP SP2 compatibility mode, check "run as an administrator", hit "Apply", then "OK". Then right-click on "setup.exe" again, select "Run as an administrator" and install the game.

2) Remove the read-only properties from the entire game folder by right-clicking on it, selecting "properties", un-checking "read-only" hitting "apply", selecting "Apply changes to this folder, subfolders and files" and hitting OK.

3) Go into the game folder, find "swkotor.exe", right-click on it, select "Properties", then "Compatibility", set it to run in XP SP2 compatibility mode, check "run as an administrator", hit "Apply", then "OK".

4) Do 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.
The other stuff is GPU-specific, and, since I don't know what kind of graphics card you have, I can't give any instruction regarding that. Just look at steps 9 and 11 in the second post of this thread if you have either an Intel (9) or ATI (11) GPU.

Apart from what is written in the first couple of posts, I cant say much else on this topic specifically.

^Yeah, definitely weird. That looks like some kind of "compatibility files" or permissions thing, which is a problem that I've never run into, myself. Did you remove the "read-only" properties from the game folder?

OK, you either haven't done the Dantooine lag fix, or it hasn't taken hold for some reason.


"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."

*cautiously enters the room*

Uh, hi. New to KotOR here. I am hoping someone can help me. Sorry this is going to be a tl;dr kind of thing but I just need to explain how this happened:

Just managed to get the game installed and running last night on Windows 7 and it was working just fine except for a bit of touchiness when it came to starting the game but once the game was past the company credits screen it was fine. However, I must have done something to the computer settings or whatnot because all of a sudden tonight I was unable to load the game without it immediately minimizing and being unable to restore.

Long story short, I used the .ini settings as suggested in post #31 of this thread and that has completely fixed the crashing problem, so yay! However, the game screen is awfully small on my monitor. Here's a link to an image of how much it takes up on the screen.

My question is whether or not I can use these swkotor.ini fixes along with a mod of some kind to either make it full screen or near full screen again. I tried using SteveDroid's widescreen fix patch but that only appears to make the screen *smaller*.

Thanks for your potential help. :-)

ETA: for the record, normal resolution on my screen is 1680x1050.

ETA2: Hmm, maybe the .ini fix didn't help as much as I thought after all. After every battle my PC is unable to move. I have to save the game, exit out and the return in order to move.

Did you install the game according to the large-print instructions at the top of the second post in 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.

I appear to have missed installing the Directx 9 step but everything else was done properly and in order. Should I uninstall the entire game and do it again?

ETA: Have reinstalled game following instructions accordingly. The only thing I was unable to do was Set Affinity (my computer wouldn't allow me to do so). Still having identical problem: game will not launch in Fullscreen mode and when I apply setting changes as they appear in post #31, the screen gets smaller (of course). Resolution 1280x1024 is too long (the menu options disappear underneath my taskbar) and 1280x960 gives me the bug where I am unable to move after a combat has completed. In fact, anything lower than 1280X1024 gives me that bug.

I would post a Hardware Configuration report but my computer apparently will not allow that either. And yes, I am running as administrator.

Is the box marked "Show processes from all users" in the Task Manager checked?

Does FullScreen=1 in the .ini file?

You can't use the game's configuration utility to post your system specs?

  • Bring up the launcher menu for Kotor 1 or 2.
  • 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.
And please specify which version of Windows you are using because the game can't ID anything newer than XP.

And here's your problem. If it's IDing your OS as Win9x you're going to have to reinstall the game because you did not set compatibility mode to XP SP2 on either the the install disk's setup.exe (before installation) or swkotor.exe (after installation, patching and replacement with the one updated by SecuROM).

That's bizarre because I *absolutely* did. I can try reinstalling a third time and trying it again.

ETA: If that is where the problem lies, I don't know what else to do. I followed the install instructions to the letter. I even ensured that all users have the same configuration. This is in the new report:

[OS]
Name=Win9x
Version=Windows 9X v6.1 build 7600
Service Pack=None
Status=Fail

Deity as my witness, I set both the Setup and .exe file for Compatibility with Win XP (service pack 2), I swear it.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong. This is how I do it:
(I am under the assumption that I don't need to keep reinstalling the DirectX 9 file linked to in the first post).

1). Locate Setup.exe. Right-click on it, set it to Win XP SP2 compatibility and set to run as Admin. I ensure this is done for all users (moot point since I am the only user, but I digress).
2). Install the game. When it asks me to enter disk 4, I do so. Install completes.
3). I patch the game with 1.03.
4). I then replace the mss32.dll (the original is backed up elsewhere).
5). I then backup the swkotor.exe file and put a no-cd .exe into place (not the one linked in the second post; that one doesn't work or me).
6). Right-click on the no-cd to ensure it is in Win XP SP2 compatibility mode (it is).
7). Set a shortcut to the no-cd onto the desktop.
8). Right click shortcut to ensure it is in Win XP SP2 compatibility mode (it is).
9). Start the game. It starts in full screen mode but it either minimizes after Lucas Arts or the Bioware splash screen. Am unable to progress past that point.

At this point I could apply the setting fixes in post #31 to prevent the crash but it will give me the issues I've spoken of: The screen is either too small (appearing only in the top left corner of my screen), or at 1280x1024 it's too small and too long (the bottom of the screen is cut off), or at 1280x780 (or lower) I can play the game but I am unable to move after every battle completes.

10). Add the line "Disable Vertex Buffer Objects=1" (without quotes) to the Graphics Options in the swkotor config settings file, also noting that V-Sync is set to 0. Problem persists.

Are you hitting the "apply" button after setting compatibility mode to XP SP2 and checking "run as an administrator"? The changes won't take effect if you don't.

Yes. I did notice that I had forgotten to put the patch in compatibility mode, however. I tried re-patching (hoping that it would rewrite the files) but nothing changed. I have uninstalled again and am going to try doing that properly this time.

Quick question: do I need to alter any registry entries after each uninstall to make sure the game is completely gone? The game no longer shows up as an option in Uninstall Programs, however.

I usually run CCleaner's registry cleaner and reboot after uninstalling anything.

It appears that I get that OS information immediately upon installing the game despite the fact that I run the Setup.exe in Win XP SP2 compatibility mode i.e. before patching it or modifying any files at all). Any ideas why it could be doing that?

Not a one. I know that you're setting the files to run as an admin, but are you then right-clicking on them and choosing "run as an administrator" when you run them instead of just double-clicking on them? Are you using an admin's account?

Yes, I'm using an Admin account. In fact, it's the only account on this computer.
