Hi there. Anyone know the PC specs for KOTOR II? Or know where I can find them? I need to know to see if my graphics card can handle it.

From what the devs have said, if you're PC can run KotOR you should be able to run TSL.

Some cannot one afford one. This possiblity not is have 150$. Also facts be that graphics not are as good to the xbox as in the computer addingt facts to that is moddings not are belong to the xboxs.

Anyways some ppl cant afford an xbox cuz they spend money on things like food gas and car insurance. Plus the graphics arent as good and there arent mods for the Xbox version.

This is a good point. Car insurance sucks! Car insurance is almost as big a con as health insurance. I'm going to pay money monthly in case I get in an accident and then if I do get in an accident the insurance company doesn't want to give me the money I'm owed!!!!

Back on topic: PCs definitely have the capacity to have better graphics than XBoxes. Problem is unless a person brought their computer with gaming in mind this really isn't the case. When I got my computer I was thinking about school work and internet not games and I'm not going to buy another computer(that'll cost me >$1200) to remedy that error. I'd rather own a $150 Xbox that also has other games.

You're right about the modding though. No console can compete with the PC when it comes to modding. Modding extends the life of games. Think about Jedi Knight people are still playing that because of mods.

i agree with fiend

also since the game is using the same game engine as kotor with just a few game play tweeks and other extras, but in essence it should mean that tsl will be compatable with any pc that was compatable with kotor, however i have no idea if it will be compatable with xp service pack 2 but i would assume it will be but dont quote me on that lol :D

It must change alot because of the graphic changing and all that.

Theres really not a whole lot of change; improved frame rates & weather effects.

What I said earlier is basically what the devs have said about system req's.

actually, it doesn't take much to build a good gaming system that can run half-life 2 or doom 3 on the highest settings(and still have a good framerate). to be honest, all my system needs is a radeon 9800 XT or a geforce fx5850 to run those games really well. both of which cost less than $300 now. :D

as far as the rest of the machine, just aim for a cheaper motherboard from soyo or asus. i recommend an amd chip because they tend to run cheaper, but you can't go bad with an intel, neither. 512 Mb of ram should have ya covered. and a power supply doesn't need to be more than 400 watts (unless you plan to add 20 fans and a neon light :rolleyes: ). most motherboards come with built in sound and networking. if you want to be real cheap, use the harddrive and removable media devices from your old machine. then, just reuse the case. going that route, you might spend $700+, depending on what kind of deals you can find. :D

of course, an xbox is still cheaper. :snear:

You'll eventually run into problems anyway. CPU and video cards are fine but if you want your comp to last, jump to 1024 mb of RAM, get a decent motherboard(later when you're going to upgrade, it's good to have a decent one instead of a cheap piece of crap), a GOOD sound card(built in sucks, anything built in sucks, you'll run into issues sooner or later) and a good big and nasty SATA hard drive.

Re-use only the parts that will probably never have an upgrade(network, CD player, DVD player, CD-writer, case, floppy disk drive(only school uses floppy disks anymore...cheap lousy retarded idiots), maybe harddrive if yours is still good enough(IDE won't matter that much but as of now I would aim for SATA if you like a little oompf) and everything from monitor(though you might consider switching monitors after a while, they tend to degrade in visual quality with time) to mouse).

This probably won't make you go over 1000$.

Oh don't forget to go with AMD. They have good CPU and they are cheaper then the Intel Cards for pretty much the same performances.

well, he said cheap, so i gave him a cheap option that will run games very well, although not blazingly fast. :)

as far as motherboards go, soyo and asus are rock solid in reliability. just be sure you match the motherboard with whatever processor your going to run (amd athlon 64 or intel pentium 4), it has AGP 8x (PCI Express is a bit too expensive at this point), and slots for DDR memory. i forget which form of DDR-xxx memory is the current standard, so just look for numbers at or higher than 333 (in place of the x's ;)).

Yeah but daddy would buy me a new computer if i told him it was school... Not a new xbbox...

Its actually not very hard.... But tahts not what kind of mods were talking about here.
Xbox Scene (http://www.xbox-scene.com/)
^x Box Mods ^

http://www.pcgamemods.com/6
^ Kotor Mods ^

Kotor Mods is what were referring to here. That is changing or add new things onto the game.

According to OE if your PC could run KOTOR it will run KOTOR:TSL just fine.

Didn't they slightly improve the graphics?

I don't think so... OE added environmental effects, but they are still stuck with the XBox and its system limitations, hence why the PC requirements shouldn't change either. :D

So unless MS is going to visit every XBox owner in the world one mysterious night this December and freely upgrade the XBox console for them, I just don't see a requirement change for KOTOR:TSL from that of KOTOR.

the only thing that i can think of that would affect the graphics would be the flowing capes. you might have some more polys in those models, what with all the capes and hoods and stuff. otherwise, the graphics look about the same to me. :D

I think we can safely say that it will take more hard drive space.

BinnyV
11-22-2004, 03:05 PM
:( Uh oh. I just installed UT 2004 on my HD. The sad smiley is for me having only 12 gigs left on my D drive. If TSL get's bigger then KOTOR, then I'll be in a pickle for memory :(

14 gigs of anime take up space as well ;)

Then a couple gigs of manga to go along with that.....

lukeiamyourdad
11-22-2004, 04:01 PM
Dude 12 Gigs is more then enough. KOTOR 1 was under 4 Gigs.

RedHawke
11-22-2004, 06:53 PM

I agree. :D

Figure on KOTOR:TSL taking around the same amount of space as KOTOR 1.

Might I suggest getting a DVD Burner? That would help you free up HDD space.

:D

lukeiamyourdad
11-23-2004, 05:11 AM
Or get a bigger hard drive :D

a 200 Gig these days cost around 100$ US.
A burner would cost around 70-80$ plus you have to buy the DVD to burn them on. So new Hard drive> DVD burner.

:xp:

Simple. Delete the crap. Excuse me, I mean your anime folder.

starmark2k
11-23-2004, 06:11 AM
also you should go through the hard drive and see what you don't need and don't use anymore, last time i did that i got an extra gig outa my hard drive

stingerhs
11-23-2004, 07:12 AM
^^^^
same here. turns out i had about 10-12 different games installed on the harddrive. now, i only have about 4-5 games installed, which are the ones i play. :)

as for freeing up space, you can also get some programs that can sort through all the files on your harddrive to find programs you don't use, internet cache, excess pictures (for all the, umm, art loving people on the forum ;)), etc. don't have any recommendations right off the bat though...

if you want something real bad, then cd-r/rw and dvd +/- rw is your friend. :D

Yes if you have useless pictures, you can send them to me. Nice pictures only though.

Graphic card: Ati Radeon 9600, 64 MB
Memory: 510 MB (Hmmmmmmm...)
CPU: Athlon 2.80 GHz
Operating system: Windows XP
DirectX 9.0

and laptop.

Will it run?

90SK
12-10-2004, 06:17 PM
Maybe. I'm not sure your graphics card will work with it (I'm basing this off KotOR 1's stats) and apparently the game taked 512 MG to run.

Does anyone know if it will have the same "update" feature that KotOR had? I was thinking that might be BioWare specific...Not sure. I love that one click type of updating.

90SK
12-10-2004, 08:51 PM
I agree. It was also kinda fun seeing what goodies came with said upgrade. :^:

starmark2k
12-11-2004, 02:27 AM
I think the updates, will work on the click the update button as all lucasarts games have had that feature over the past couple of years.
