[TSL] Can't get the game to start

My laptop died the other day, but I was able to get another one, so, I installed TSL on it. The game will start fine, and it'll let me make my character, but then, after I hit 'play' and it plays the scroll and the clip of the Ebon Hawk flying into Peragus, the screen goes black and won't come back on unless I hit escape. I have no clue what's going on. The mods I have installed are:

Skip Peragus
Barriss Offee
Handmaiden Style Undies for Female PCs
Movie Style Dark Side Transitions
Handmaiden Choice for Females
Bao-Dur's Dark Side Clothing
Mira/Hanhaar Choice Mod


Could any of these be the problem? Thanks!


Chapter 12 of A Soul Adrift is out.

Short stories:
T'katlu: On the planet Felucia, a young apprentice of the Dark Side thinks back to the beginning of her training as she lies in wait for her prey...

All the Time: After four years in the Unknown Regions, the Exile returns to the known galaxy to visit an old enemy.

Broken: A master of the Dark Side finds himself about to lose the one thing he cares about--and he will do anything to stop her from endangering herself.

Operating System.

Since its reporting Service Pack 3 I'm assuming that it's XP. I can't remember if the utility reports Vista as XP Service Pack 2 or if it actually recognizes it as Vista. Judging by your hardware, I'd say you have XP.

OK, like a lot of laptops, your laptop has Intel integrated graphics. I'm not sure about the options that your video driver has, so I don't know if you can do this or not, but this is the standard fix for an Intel GPU:

Go to:
Start > Settings > Control Panel > Display > Settings > Advanced > Intel(R) Extreme Graphics (or Intel(R) Graphics Media Accelerator) > Graphics Properties...
Select the "OpenGL" tab.
Change the "Flipping Policy" to "Blit".

If that doesn't work, it probably wouldn't hurt to go ahead and open "swkotor2.ini" in your game folder with notepad and enter "Disable Vertex Buffer Objects=1" without the quotes under "Graphics Options".

If that doesn't work, the next thing that you should do is update your graphics drivers. Here is the newest one for your model. Update the driver, try to run the game, and then try the first fix that I suggested if you need to if the option is available.

I've never tried running TSL on Intel graphics (nor would I want to ), so I'm kind of flying blind here.

The problem is the graphics chip. Neither game runs properly (or at all) on an Intel 915 chipset. You could try disabling frame buffer effects and all advanced graphics options, but you're probably out of luck.
