Having browsed around, I am unable to figure this out. In both K1 and TSL, I get repeated crashes when entering certain modules. In K1, it was the Ebon Hawk after the Leviathan. In TSL, it's the cantina on Oneron. I can warp there from the courtyard, but when I enter or re-enter the standard way, the load-screen gets to about 90%, then it crashes. I've tried various graphics/screen resolution changes, but the crashes continue. I'm not very tech-savvy, so any input would be greatly appreciated!!!

Edit: Why does it give me a video card warning?

Strange, it should play.

I get a videocard warning, but game runs fine (game just doesn't recognize it).

A) Have you tryed dropping down all the graphics card options down lower? I know on my old PC it didn't like smoke, and the game would slow down greatly, it also didn't like the grass in Dantooine in either game and it would get seriously laggy there.

B) Have you got any mods installed?

Thanks for the links! I'll try the suggestions and post results!

Edit: I went to my Nvidia Control Panel and selected "Use the advanced 3D image settings" Under the "Program Settings", "Add" swkotor2.exe. That seems to be one of the most likely fixes for my Onderon issues.

I also got the Nvidia tools software which allows me to monitor the GPU temperature, and updated the 8600 GT driver.
