I did some looking around and some tweaking, but so far nothing is fixing my problem. Whenever I start a new game, the intro movie plays just fine, but as soon as gameplay should start, the screen messes up and goes black. The program sits for a while, and then crashes.

So, I thought it just might be a bug in getting the game going. I downloaded a save game from this thread (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=157988) and played it. I can load the save game just fine and move the character (some droid, T-42 I believe) just fine, but as soon as I pan the camera in either direction, the game locks up and crashes. There's a save that starts right at the galaxy map, so I tried to use the galaxy map. I can move the ship into the Peragus docking bay, but as soon as it tries to load the next level, the screen messes up like at the beginning of the game and it crashes. EDIT: It also crashes if I move into a new area of the Hawk without moving the camera.

I did some more digging and figured out that I have an Intel 945GM graphics card in this laptop, so I downloaded the newest drivers and changed the OpenGL settings like is suggested on this page (http://support.intel.com/support/graphics/sb/CS-008649.htm) from the sticky above. Same problem.

I also lowered all the settings I could, turning off shadows and grass, lowering the resolution, turning off movies, etc. No dice.

I've recently defragged the hard drive and I'm not running anything in the background, so it might just be a problem with TSL not running on my computer. If anybody has any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks for any help.
