Considering trying out (or returning to) SWTOR? You may as well go through my link and help get me some SWTOR referral points!

Sith if that doesn't work try reinstalling the game in WXP2.

Patch the game and make sure to put in the movies patch also.

Next put the game on the lowest settings for graphics.

And to be on the safe side, run the game in administrative mode, and set the affinity.

After playing with my game settings I no longer have to set the affinity. It's on the lowest graphic settings and I do get the occasional lag but hey it's normall for any computer I run it on. I'm almost 100% sure that if I ran a no CD version of the game then I wouldn't have as much trouble but whatever. I do find that with my laptop things run smoother if I install the original game from the bought disc, then get the no cd crack. I had to do it for oen of my games because it wouldn't run properly with the laptop reading the game right from the disc. (stubborn much?)

Have you even bothered to read the first two posts of this thread?

Hello!

My Kotor crashed at a specific cut-scene on Korriban, right at the beginning at the port where a Sith makes fun of a few hopefuls. Right after his first spoken sentence (presumably followed by Sith-lightning), the game crashes.

So i reinstalled EVERYTHING, following your instructions TO THE LETTER (something i hadnt done with the first install simply bc i didnt know about it ).

after overcoming some trouble with the widescreen patch i installed all my previous Mods (of which there are many), first using KMM for the non-TSL-patchable mods to exclude conflicts, then all the TSL patchables.

I then copied my old saves back and loaded the newest (worked just fine), walked up to my old "crash site", the cut-scene starts and BANG!, Kotor crashes at the EXACT same place!

So right now I'm looking for the culprit. As to my rig:

Vista 64, SP 3
put back DX 9.0 (even though DX 10 is shown everywhere else)
Nvidia Geforce 7900 GTX
AMD Phenom 9850 Quad
RAM 6 Gigs

1) I dialed down all the graphics options to a minimum, set cpu affinity to one core, ran everything in XP compatability (yes, also during installation), no difference.

2) During Mod installation i had 10 conflicts in the Yavin 1.5 mod regarding tga, uti and mdl files for sabers and robes. Could that be the reason? i had NO 2da conflicts.

3) While playing Yavin, there was a place in the mod where the same thing happened as above, so i just didnt go there and played on... Yavin also crashed in other places when there was too much force power-use going on, but i could reload and later pass these places...

4) can i use my newest savegames even if i remove the yavin mod? and how would i do that, since it used the TSL patcher and it copied about a million files into my override.

5) There are a few unique Yavin items in my inventory. would they just vanish or would my savegame be unplayable? would it be enough for me to just use a save from BEFORE going yavin-planetside?

I seem to be concentrating on Yavin, but there may still be other reasons...

reinstalled (again...), this time without Yavin, no change, crashes in the same place!

Is there a trick to skip that specific cut scene?

OK, I"m trying to install KOTOR 2 and have done everything as outlined in the first few posts but it still won't work on my laptop. It has Windows 7 and an Intel chipset, but if anyone needs specific specs I can get that. Basically whenever I start a new game, after the opening credits I hear beeping on the Ebon Hawk but the screen is black, and then the game crashes. The only thing I haven't done is email Securom for an exe because the game isn't telling me I'm using an emulator or anything. Before anyone asks, yes I am using a disk, not a no-CD crack. Any help would be appreciated. ^_^

In the meantime, I'm going to go to the Securom website and see if I can do anything there.

Edit: Egh, apparently they sent me an e-mail saying it's not their fault basically. Idk what to do....

Double edit: Nevermind, I undid the step which asks me to replace the .exe and it works for some reason.

Let me guess: Intel Mobile Series 4 chipset (X4500 GPU)?

If so, then apparently you're not the first person to get KotOR2 running on one by NOT replacing the .exe. Maybe 7 plays nicer with the older version of SecuROM?

Your input is appreciated. I've been trying to figure this one out for months without the benefit of possessing the hardware in question. This may be the breakthrough I've been looking for.

I can't seem to make this work. I thought I had the best of PC, since all the ini fixes were already done, but it seems like it wasn't. Problem is, when I patch the game, I am asked to insert a disk ( I don't have one, bought my game at direct2drive). Any idea how to fix this?

I get a black screen upon launching the game. (prior to aplying the patch and SEcuROM updates)

Thanks!

If you got it from D2D it should already work on Vista/7, and if it doesn't you should talk to them.

Question

Hi! Tis is my first LucasForum post, so yay!

I recently bought KOTOR off of Steam and I managed to play it up until the escape from Taris. I boarded the Ebon Hawk and all I got was a black screen for the next half hour. I restarted my com and tried again. This time I got to just after the Malek cutscene when I got the black screen again. Restarting my com again I tried to get through it but this time it stopped on the loading screen for the turret section.
I tried starting from the beginning again but now it happens right after I board the escape pod.
I'm running Vista (Not sure which version)

(Note: I don't know what other info to add.)

Since D2D is taking too much time to answer my problems, I am once again turning to the pros in here.

here is what my hardware scan tells me. Btw, the graphic card detected is NOT my graphic card. maybe this is my problem?
I have a nvidia GT 130M.

Hey all, I had a concern about the Kotor 2 mods made to restore the cut content. I was wondering if anyone has/is using any of them and could you give a rundown of which one is better and possibly a how-to guide to get it running right. Any insight to this would be appreciated.

Which one is better?

There's only one restoration mod that I'm aware of that's basically complete, though it is still being tweaked. The other is the bug-ridden beta of a mod that was never completed.

Try using 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.
You can leave out the keymapping.
And please specify which version of Windows you are using because the game can't ID anything newer than XP.

1) You need to do the Dantooine lag fix.

2) If it still dosen't run, try using the original swkotor2.exe from the patch instead of the one from SecuROM.

I have Windows Vista with a Nvidia 8800 GTS 512 with the newest drivers (kotor cant seem to reconize it)
I got part 1 working after a bit but I cant get TSL to work properly, the best I've managed so far is succesfully loading after creating a character, however I load immidiately into the Ebon Hawk as my MPC (not T3) while having terrible FPS and freezes. (this is without the securom .exe but otherwise following all the fixes and I tried with but the game would crash before reaching the main menu)

Are you setting CPU affinity to a single core every time you launch the game?

Hi, I see to be having the same problem as most people with these Intel chipsets. I'm running Windows 7 with the Intel HD Graphics card, and my game crashes after character creation. I have unchecked Read-Only from the SWKotOR2 folder, have everything in XP SP2 compatibility mode and as administrator. Also, I did install and reinstall according to the steps in post two. Still no go. Any input would be appreciated.

While looking for a fix that I hadnt tried yet I found mention that Windows 2000 compatibility sometimes works better then XP and this has allowed me to succesfully make a character and complete the prologue without problems, maybe this could help some others too.

Interesting. Vista did not used to do this. I haven't used Vista since 7 came out, and that feature could've been included with the improvements that MS made to Vista since then.

1) Try using the original swkotor2.exe from the patch instead of the one updated by SecuROM.

2) If that doesn't work, try contacting SecuROM for a new .exe using the link in post 2.

I've never heard of that approach, but I'll most certainly look into it. Your input is appreciated.

Hello all,

Is there a DX11 version of the DirectX patch in post two of the thread, or will the linked to file still work?

(Sorry for the visitor message Q, was having acct reactivation issues)

Q --

Thank you for your second post on this thread!

Two things.

1. Perhaps this thread title could be amended to include Windows 7 in the title? That was the reason I originally skipped over it.

2. In your second post, it mentions enhanced movies and music for KotOR 2. Where are these? I went to Lucasarts.com (where the official patch is), but didn't find it.

Thanks again.

Just to add my 2 cents about compatibility modes. XP SP2 mode was very unstable for me on Win7 x64. I'm having much better luck with the Win2000 compatibility mode.

@Al_Ciao: he meant the site that his links lead to, Here ya go, just look for them under the official release part

@Q I gots myself a little problem with Intel as well (Mobile Intel 4 Express Chipset Family) and ive done everything you said and i still cant get passed the 1st movie. Movie, no problem, but after that, black screen, droid (T3 i would guess.) and then crashes. i find it weird tho because i have not one problem with Kotor II on meh Windows 7 desktop, but i do with this windows 7 laptop here... ive coppied the files from my desktop to my laptop before, witch didnt work. I got kotor 1 to work no problem at all after following your post XD mabye a few "Sith Lords" dont like Mr. Bill Gates....



EDIT: ok, now when it crashes i dont even hear T3 beep..... i didnt do anything to it either XD dont know if that will help or not, but yeah....

EDIT2: well, i tried taking a few of the saves from meh desktop (one was in telos, one in Korriban, and other was Trayus Core or w/e its called) to see if the claim that only the begining parts and the endgame was broke, well, my korriban didnt work either. thought that might want to be known XD

Hey everyone!

I seem to be having a unique problem... one that I couldn't find anywhere else.

I installed the game and it runs perfectly up until, in Peragus, I loot the body in the morgue with the plasma torch. Kreia then gets up to begin a dialog and, without fail, the game crashes. It runs incredibly smoothly while I am doing anything else, but I cannot get beyond this point. I have quite a few mods installed, don't know if that is relevant or not. I am running Vista 64, and am getting this as the error thing...


GLU32.dll is the faulty module or whatever it is called.

Does anyone have any idea how I can fix this? Thanks!

EDIT: another tidbit of info.... I cannot disable all of the files to read-only. I click properties, deselect read only, press apply, and wait about 15 seconds while it says "changing attributes..." and goes through everything (mostly in streamvoice and override). Upon completion, I press ok at the bottom. However, when I reopen the properties, the "read-only" box remains checked! Then I repeat the same process, and the same thing happens. I am thinking that maybe since these files are read-only (since I can't change them) that that is what's causing my problems. I have tried quite a few work aroudns to this read-only problem, but to no avail. Anyone have any ideas?

That read-only thing is normal. The property has been removed, even if Windows says that it hasn't.

Please use the game's configuration utility to post your system specs:

  • 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.

No idea whether this is the right thread but after I applied the changes I mentioned earlier in my thread I was able to play until Dantooine but now the game starts crashing my AMD driver every 5-10 minutes when I'm hiking through the planes. A little help would be appreciated what might cause this problem.

Have you tried any of the AMD/ATi-specific suggestions in post #2?

Thanks. The guide is actually due for a serious overhaul, and should be far easier to follow once it's done.

Hey I installed Kotor 1 and 2 and so far they are running with no problem, is there anything I should be worried about; like a crash somewhere in the middle of the game?

If they're running OK, count your blessings.

There are places where you can get your discs buffed or you can contact LucasArts for a new set.

Or you can get it brand spanking new for $10.50.

I know I'm resurrecting an old thread, but I hope somebody can help. I performed all of the fixes in post #2 except the Dantooine lag fix (I'll do that later). The game hasn't crashed once since then. The problem is the game will not load manual saves. It loads auto saves just fine. I wouldn't care except I can't usually devote that much time to the game at one time. I searched and couldn't find an answer. Thanks

Are the manual saves from a previous installation?
