Is TSL compatible with my NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 Model 64 Pro?

I don't think so.

Looks like a 32MB card. I think that is the minimum requirement for TSL.
If you can play it, it will be choppy, to say the least.

That would be an understatement. In my old computer I had an nVidia GeForce2 GTS card, and my framerate on average when playing KotOR1 was around 5 FPS. And TSL is even more demanding than the first game. :)

If I remember correctly the RIVA TNT cards was the series before the first GeForce cards were released, a very old video card (by computer standards). I doubt the game would run with one.

Ah, ok. I never heard of the RIVA series, so I was only guessing based on it being a 32MB card. I figured it was an older card, though.

It would help if you posted you system specs. Even if you get a good card, if you CPU isn't up to spec, it won't help.


You could look at newegg.
here is the link http://www.newegg.com/

It really depends on how much you are willing to spend. It should even be a bit better then the recommended specs as most games are still a bit choppy with that. I have a GeForce Fx 5600 and I have some issues with the game getting choppy. It's not too bad though.

I've decided to just forget about TSL, I'll sell it to my neighbor for $39.99

What video cards that you know of, fit an iMac? Or do all of them fit?

Just go to newegg (http://newegg.com) and find a Radeon 9600 under the 'Macintosh Products' section. That should run TSL :)

TSL is windows only, so unless we cough up a lot of petitions to port it, I'm doomed.
