KOTOR 2 crash at start of level 1

Hey people, bought a used copy of KOTOR 2, installed it without problems and everything works...right up until level 1 begins. Specifically, I go through the character creation, the first movie plays, level begins but there's no picture or anything. I get a few sounds and music from the game before it crashes, with the typical Vista error msg: "KOTOR 2 has stopped working properly and needs to close. Windows will let you know when a solution is available."

I've run through the research and the forums, tried all the fixes that were applicable to my problem and system; mss32.dll fix, adjusted graphics settings, set the game compatibility for Windows XP SP2, etc.

I run a Vista-32 bit Sony Vaio, with all the updates and newest drivers, I have an Intel 956 Chipset w/ accelerated media graphics driver (worked fine for KOTOR 1 and similar games), my RAM is great and my hard drive has enough space for another OS and then some.

Someone rescue me please!

Did you install the game according to the large-print 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."
