It has solved all my issues with crashing.
My swkotor.ini file already had the Disable Vertex Buffer Objects line in the Graphics options. I don't understand what the problem is. It installed and played fine when I first got the game, but, after I uninstalled it to clear some space, it never has worked since I reinstalled it.
OS: Windows 7 (Service Pack 1) 64bit
Processor: Intel Core i5-2410M CPU @ 2.30 GHz
RAM: 6.00 GB
I tried running it in Windows XP (Service Pack 3) compatibility mode, but it still crashed in the loading screen. It worked fine on the same system before.
