First of all, I would like to say hello, as this is my first post. I have recently purchased KOTOR2 but cannot begin to play the game. I have looked to see if there was any help in regards to my problem on the forum but I could not seem to find any :)

I load up great, get to the character creation screen where we can assign our character his/her attributes. This is when the screen goes black and the music freezes making a gosh awful noise. I was simply wondering if anyone here any information which would help me resolve this matter.

Thanks in Advance for ANY Help

I have tried reinstalling the game, reinstalling the nvidia drivers, restoring to a previous restore point, etc..

I just cannot think of anything else I could try to do to get the game to work. I am not super computer saavy so I don't want to go too far out on a limb messing with things without a little bit of help.

Basically, the problem is the SAME as this one (( http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=144109 )), but I do not have an ATI card. I have a geforce 6800 GT. Is there any known fix to this issue?

If your game crashes during the movie right after you've created a character, I had the same problem. To fix this, download the patch off the Lucas Arts page.

Thank you Star Tourist.

I have "patched" the game using the update box on the start up screen. Is this the same thing as the patch off of the website you are referring to? I apologize for all the questions, just looking forward to playing teh game.
