KOTOR Video Problems

Running Vista Basic 32 bit.

Problem:

System Requirements Lab scan:

Anything else I need to post, tell me exactly where to find it or I never will be able to.

Also, if there's already a sloution to this I apologize, i searched and had no luck.

EDIT: Turning off grass seems to have solved this problem for the time being. If anyone knows why this is the case, or knows of another solution that would allow me to fully experience the game, I'd appreciate the extra knowledge.

Thanks for posting your specs.
I'll tell you why it's the case. It's because you're trying to play the game on an Intel GPU, which the game doesn't officially support.

Since you're using Vista, the first thing that you should do is check out the first 2 posts in this thread and follow all of the directions there.

Then try opening the "swkotor.ini" file in your game folder with Notepad and enter the line "Disable Vertex Buffer Objects=1" under "Graphics Options", save and exit.

If none of that helps you can then resort to turning off the eye candy like you've already done, and reducing the resolution to minimum. The reason that I'm suggesting that you try the other stuff first is because your Intel GPU is a Series 4 which is newer and should be capable of running the game with at least some if not all of the eye candy turned on. By eye candy I mean:

1) Anti-aliasing
2) Anisotropic filtering
3) Frame buffer effects
4) Grass
5) Shadows
6) Any other stuff like that (I don't have either game installed right now).


"They should rename the team to the Washington Government Sucks. Put Obama on the helmet. Line the entire walls of the stadium with the actual text of the ACA.
Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."
