Hello!

In my game, there is a noticable graphic issue with the mouth texture of Motta the Hutt in Tatooine.

Practically, more than a few pixels are completely missing so that I see a little of the wall behind him through his mouth.

Has anyone else encountered this problem?

I am using an ATI graphic card.

Moved to The Work bench, better chance of getting an answer there. ;)

For starters:
Post your system specs
Sometimes we're just not going to be able to help you if we don't know what kind of hardware you have on your machine. If you don't know what you have on your machine, then follow these steps below:
Bring up the launcher menu for Kotor 1 or 2.
Click on "Configure".
Click the "Scan Hardware" button on the lower center of the window.
Click "Yes" to continue.
Click "Details" to view your system specs.
Click "Save Report" and save the file to your desktop.
Whenever you post your problem, open the file you just saved and copy and paste the contents to your post.
Also, please list what version of Windows that you're using because the game can't accurately detect anything newer than XP.

Q

ATI cards are notorious for their graphical anomalies with the KotOR games. Here are a couple of suggestions that might help:
Hello,

first some facts about the setup:

o Win7 x64
o KoToR via steam (so the installation guide is useless)
o HD5770
o Catalyst 10.2

It's rather simple, really. The game had trouble locating the OpenGL driver and I got a atioglxx.dll exception.

I found the workaround at guru3d and the AMD forums: Put the atioglxx.dll from Catalyst 9.12 in the game folder. So far it works in windowed mode only, but I am glad it works at all.

Thread at guru3d: http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=315893

Maybe you can work this into one of the guides.

Thanks,
Christian
I downloaded ATI System Tools, created a game profile where I set Direct3d and OpenGL settings to Auto Balanced and it worked like a charm!
