View Full Version : Crash on Nar-Shadaa

I am consistently crashing at one point on Nar-Shadaa. Visquis? has just been killed and I get a cutscene where Kreia blackmails Hanharr into helping me.
Just as the cutscene ends I see me standing next to the ventilation control room outside the arena thing, and then the game crashes.
This happens regularly, any possible way around it?
I can't just skip it as its directly after a cutscene. I get plenty of random crashing, but this one is every time and I can't continue the game otherwise :(
My specs are good, I can play on high settings apart from when swoop racing

well, to possibly confirm your theory, it doesn't sound like you have a hardware problem (although i wouldn't completely rule it out). so, the first question to ask in this case: do you have any mods installed for kotor2?

Had 1 robe mod installed, but I have tried without mods and it still crashes.
Its really frustrating as it takes me 5 minutes to find out if it crashes from having to click through the cutscenes.

I have tried from a multitude of different save points and am still crashing.
How far back a save should I go? Should I redo the whole planet? Or should I wait for the patch which will fix all the other bugs too?
Very frustrating

hmm, follow the instructions i posted in the "Read this before posting your problem" sticky to post your specs. now, before you start quoting my earlier post, the same process that you follow in that sticky also posts your game settings as well as your hardware info. i'm interested in seeing both. ;)

Any of those settings a problem?
Thanks for the help

well, considering the game gave you a warning in the config about your graphics card, i would try to turn down the settings a bit. the first spot i would go for would be the anitaliasing and the antistrophic filtering. try disabling both of those and check back here with your results. :)

Turned the settings down a lot: disabled AA and antistrophic, cranked texture details down to low, turned off soft shadows, frame buffers etc.
Still crashed :confused:

at least you partially solved any framerate problems. :rolleyes:

now i think i'm partially at a loss here. you may have one really random bug in your copy of the game. i guess this means you might want to try re-installing again. i honestly don't know if that will help though. :(

I was getting killer framerates :D but I changed it back because it looked like PS2 graphics.
Since its the holidays and I can't get hold of my copy of the game at the moment, I have decided to start a new game to see if I get the same bug.
I'm going to try doing stuff in a different order and see if I can get around it.
Wish me luck!
