I've read the different sticky threads that give suggestions of ways of improving the kotor 2 game experience. However, I need some help. I recently upgraded my video card from a NVIDA GeForce MX 420 to a Diamond S120 256MB DDR Radeon 9550. But when I look at the configuration menu and scan hardware it says in the details of the video section "cannot detect VRAM". How do I fix this? I can put all the graphic options up all the way on resolution 1024x768, but it's a little shakey. And if I leave it on 800x600 and put the smooth shadows on the screen gets bent. Doesn't happen on a higher resolution though. And with my configuration report below, what items or other things would you recommend for me?
