Hi everyone,

I'm using the Steam version of Kotor and I know it hasn't been mentioned in this thread but I'm hoping someone here can help me with the problem I'm having.

At first the game would crash as soon as I tried to open it but after reading post #31 in this thread I've managed to get the game to run in a window at 1024x768 by changing the following in [Graphics Options] in swkotor.ini:

Anti Aliasing=1
FullScreen=0

I'd love to get the game to run fullscreen or at least be able to run it in a bigger window. If run the game and go to Options->Graphics->Screen Resolution there is nothing in there so I can't change the res in there. I've also tried changing the res in the config file but no matter what I make it there is no difference.

Here is what I've tried so far:
Running the game with & without the mss32.dll mentioned in post #1 as well has running it in Windows XP SP2 compatibility mode.
Installed the latest DirectX Redistributable Package and added Disable Vertex Buffer Objects=1 to my swkotor.ini.
As for CPU affinity, if I have the config set to fullscreen=1 the game crashes before I even have time to set it to one core and if the config is set to fullscreen=0 then I can change the affinity but it doesn't help with the res problem.

My specs are:
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T8300 @ 2.40GHz
4GB Memory
GeForce 8600M GT
Windows 7 Ultimate (Build 7600) (32 bit version)

Below is the output from running swconfig.exe (I've left out the [Keymapping] piece if you need it let me know and I'll post it too):
