Kotor 1 Video Card Don`t Send Error Problem, Need Help
I decide to play Kotor once again, but this time i get great, great trouble.
Im with Windows XP, and my computer is strong enough to run this game, but video card test failed, and give me a red point. And ofc i cant run the game. Its start and when i create my character and click on start(play) i get dont send error every time.
This is what is write next to failed test: Your current video card drivers are out of date Nvidia cards require Detonator 45.23 Drivers or better.
My Video Card is GeForce 9600 with 512mb, and im with latest drivers. I also try to run the game with old drivers but without success.
I rly love this game and dont know what will do if i can run it.
You are my last hope, and i hope you can help me.
P.P. Just to mention i finished kotor 2 few weeks ago and I had no problems with it.
You should be able to run it with the latest drivers. Nvidia cards are the best choice for these games. That configuration utility, while still useful for some things, is ancient and can't ID video cards any newer than the ones that were out 10 years ago when the game was new, so you can safely ignore what it says about your video card.
You'll need to try the Dantooine lag fix:
First thanks for the quick answer and that you try to help me.
Second unfortunately same thing again.
I do all that write, and when put Start/play when i creater character it start loading and give me a dont send error.
Ilso when i go to Task Manager and Processes tab, and i click on affinity, all is like you say, so i dont need to do that.
My CPU is this:
Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual CPU E2200 2.20GHz (2CPUs).
What to do now ?
I Rly want to run this game, and i will do whatever it must do it. :)
Oh, Oh Finally its start to work. :D
I was put X in Properties - Compabillity and to Run this program in compabillity mode for Windows 98/ Windows Me, and i decide try to not put this and run it normally without X on the Run this program so its default Windows 95 and so far Game decide to start. If i get crashes i will write to fix them.
Thanks a lot again.
Thank you for the tips to allow for Star Wars Knights Of The Old Republic to run on newer systems. I am also having trouble running the game on a new Alienware system I bought just last month with Windows 8 64 bit Professional edition. Here is the system specs from when I ran the Configure check from the game:

I have completed the changes you recommended to the swkotor.ini file and when I tried to apply your suggestion for a multi-core CPU, I did not find the "set affinity" option, here is a screen-shot of the Task Manager of my system when I right click on the swkotor.exe listed under "Processes":
In addition, here is the error code I receive when I try running the game:
The help link provided to the nvidia site shown above does not provide any helpful information.
Thanks for any help you may provide on this!
The affinity option is under the Details tab in Windows 8's task manager. Otherwise, it works the same as in Windows 7. Right-click on the .exe and select "set affinity."
As for your video card, it's dual-GPU, so you'll want to set the game to run on a single GPU in your Nvidia control panel under "3D Options". Otherwise, I'm not sure why it's giving you an error when it tries to detect your video card.
