View Full Version : KOTOR2, vista and resolutions
11-18-2007, 04:33 PM
I have just got Vista and tried running KOTOR2, at first it worked and then all of a sudden it did not.
I have sussed out that it will only let me play with 800x600 resolution.
I am currently using a Geforce 7100 card with the most up to date drivers.
First off: Are you running it in XP compatability mode?
Second: Performance is going to be generally worse in Vista than it was in XP when playing the same game.
Third: Not to be a smarta$$ or anything, but you are aware that the 7100 is a pretty weak video card, right?

I am not running in XP compatability mode, I shall try that.
**Just tried it and it works on 1024x768, if only I'd tried that 5 hours ago!!**
Why is performance worse in Vista than XP?? that bemuses and confuses me a bit or is it just until all the vista compatability tweaks are done??
And finally dont worry I dont think you are being a smarta$$, I know it is weak, but I could not afford a better one at first but am planning on upgrading after christmas.
Thanks for the quick reply btw!!

You can also overclock that 7100 until it squeals.

Sorry to hijack this thread, but I figured that since my topic would be identical, I might as well...
Anyway, I have the same problem, just upgraded to Vista, and now KOTOR 2 won't run. I've just installed the latest ATI Drivers (running a Radeon X1900XT), and I think they may be to blame. I've tried running KOTOR 2 in various resolutions, and in compatability mode.
