Well... I never expected this problem. I installed the game on this new computer yesterday and finally got time to play it today, so I start it up and find it's running at all the lowest settings for some reason. Ohhh kay. That's kind of weird by itself, but when it reaches the title screen it starts lagging like crazy - the framerate must be 10 FPS or so ON THE TITLE SCREEN. So I jump into the options and turn everything - wait. I try to turn everything off but everything already IS off! It's running at hte lowest possible settings - 800x600 with no advanced effects or framebuffer or anything.

Here's my system specs:

Dell Inspiron 6400
Intel Core 2 Duo T7400 model (2.16ghz)
ATI Mobility Radeon X1300 (running on Omega drivers, 128MB ram)
1024mb RAM
Windows XP Professional (not the 64-bit edition)

Nothing else particularly special. The game's FPS drops to nonexistant if I try to start it... please help me!

(EDIT) I'm playing The Sith Lords, btw, with the latest official patch. Only mods installed are RedHawke's prestige robes.

(EDIT2) More weirdness. I managed to get it running again (crashed 3 times before it even started first), the title screen runs as slow as ever, but in-game it's fine now...

I see you have omega drivers. Try some of the official ones from ati website. The latest drivers are 6.11. good luck
