View Full Version : (What will hopefully be) Answers to Common Problems Thread

KOTOR seems to have more than its fair share of various issues. So, in the hopes of helping others out and cutting down on forum search time, I thought I'd try to start a thread where people could post errors they had and their fixes. Hopefully, if enough people respond, this will become a useful thread. I only have a single one to share thus far, but here it is:

Problem: Graphic Distortion in KOTOR 1 or 2 using an NVIDIA card

Common in-game areas it effects: Taris Cantinas and sewers, Kashyyyk Shadowlands, Yavin space station, Star Forge

Known cards that it effects: GeForce 3, 4, MX

Possible Reason: If you are using the latest NVIDIA drivers (problem occurs with 93.71, possibly others), they break functionality with the game. Try rolling back to either 82.41 or 77.77. Older drivers can be found here: 3DChipset archive (http://www.3dchipset.com/drivers/nvidia/official/index.php)
