Hey guys! Good to see you're still working to keep all of us happy! Anyways, I recently updated my graphics driver, and I decided to install KOTOR2 for about the 5th time, and I tried to go to my 3D settings thing to change it to Blit, but I can't find it anywhere. Here's a picture of what it looks like now:

Any suggestions? Maybe it automatically set it to blit haha
Oh, and if you need my System info, just ask.

Exactly what updates are we talking about here? I have the same problem where it crashes on the first cutscene after character selection. Could you post the download links and maybe some instructions? Thanks!

KotOR2 supports 1280x768 natively, anyway, but you have to change the width and height settings in the .ini file because it isn't available in-game.

3) The newer Intel drivers don't have the option to set flipping policy. All you can really do is the Dantooine lag fix, try the original .exe from the patch (you didn't overwrite it, did you?) and if none of that works, download 3DAnalyze and mess with its settings.
FOR THOSE WHOSE GAME CRASHES AFTER CHARACTER CREATION:

FOLLOW THE STEPS IN THE 2ND POST, BUT AFTER ALL THAT, PUT THE ORIGINAL .exe BACK INTO THE FOLDER. IF YOU FOLLOWED THE DIRECTIONS, IT SHOULD ALREADY BE PATCHED.
Found out my problem. I was using the new .exe, not the original. I patched the original earlier, so I didn't have to do it again. Dantooine lag fix is in the .ini. I didn't have to download 3DAnalyze and mess with its settings though. It works fine now!
Thanks Q!

Glad you finally got it to work. My experience was exactly the opposite of yours. Only the SecuROM-updated .exe would work on my laptop with an Intel chipset (965). For those of you with Series 4 and later chipsets I was sure that it had something to do with the graphics drivers, and it was the .exe all along.

I have a problem where I can't even install the game. It installs normally (yet slowly) but when it gets to the end of the fourth disc it has an error that says
Feature Transfer Error

Feature: Starwars Knights of the old Republic II:The Sith Lords_Files

Component: Default Component

File: E:\data5.cab

Error: Data Error(cyclic redundancy check)

After this it just sits there for about 5 minutes then quits out of the installation like nothing happened. I tried setting the compatibility to xp like it says in the first post and I'm running the setup as an administrator but I still can't install the game.

cyclic redundancy errors are usually because of corrupted data from the CD rom, are your CDs scratched? you could try getting them buffed at a 2nd hand CD store, or do it yourself if your feeling up to it.

Sorry I missed this.

Try using the game's configuration utility to post your system specs:

  • If you're using Vista or Windows 7, go into your game folder, find "launcher.exe" and right-click on it. Select "properties", then "compatibility" and check the box beside "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and select "Windows XP (Service Pack 2)". Then check the box next to "Run this program administrator" and hit "OK". (EDIT by Q)
  • Bring up the launcher menu for Kotor 1 or 2 (by running "launcher.exe").
  • Click on "Configure".
  • Click the "Scan Hardware" button on the lower center of the window.
  • Click "Yes" to continue.
  • Click "Details" to view your system specs.
  • Click "Save Report" and save the file to your desktop.
  • Whenever you post your problem, open the file you just saved and copy and paste the contents to your post.
You can leave out the keymapping and everything after that.

It is most likely the swkotor2.exe.

Try the original (from the patch) instead of the one updated by SecuROM. If that doesn't work, contact SecuROM via the link in the second post of this thread, run their utility and request a new .exe.

Oh shoot, forgot to mention, for some reason I could not install the patch. Every time I do an error message reading "Old file not found. However, a file of the same name was found. No update done since file contents do not match". What's the problem?

I'll keep that in mind when I update the guide.

I actually purchased my copy from amazon.com. So logically, it should be an US edition. Pretty strange.

Thanks for the good information.

Can anyone re-up the links on the first page for the "mss32.dll" file?

Also... the links to the patches seem to be down. Help?

Thanks for any help. I'm running Vista and KOTOR 1.

Trying to.

Thanks, hope someone can help!

I just checked and all of the links are working fine. Maybe FileFront was having trouble.

I download my video drivers directly from Nvidia, after waiting a week or two for any potential bugs to pop up. Drivers from Windows Update can be months out of date.

Have you tried using the updater? KotOR 1's still works AFAIK.

Just to be safe, set the swupdate.exe file in the game's main folder to run in XP SP2 compatibility mode as an administrator before running it.

takisis, what I did was go through all the fixes from the first page and check to make sure I'd done everything right, I found the error I made and fixed it what I hadn't done was transfer one of the files over


I didn't spend eight years at Sith school to be called Jedi, thank you very much.

I am having a rather unique problem, similar to this. Every time after killing something, I can't use the W and S keys OR the left mouse button to move around, but can use the keyboard and mouse for other things like pausing (space) and looking around. Just moving forward or backward cannot be done. The only thing that fixes it is reloading a previous save, but starts again after fighting something.

oh yeah, I also can't install the KOTOR2 patch, manually or not. the auto update gives an error and the manual patch locks up after supposedly hitting 100%.

and for some reason the Config scan hardware report keeps failing my video card, even though I just updated it... help!

i've had that a lot on KOTOR I mostly ... dunno why the move keys stick after a kill sometimes .. i've found that saving at that point and hitting F5 for load solves it .. pain in the ass but it works to free up the movement keys. as for that graphics prob ur getting i've been getting that for ages on KOTOR I ... and i've got the latest drivers and DX for my card an win 7 ... follow the steps on the second post for this thread and it mite solve the prob .. i'm trying that now ad a lot of ppl have found that fix's the probs.


hope this helps

Hey Guys, I am new and am having an issue with KOTOR 1, I have tried running it in compatibility mode as described in the previous posts and my game still rndomly crashes throughout gameplay. I pass everything except for my drivers which it says are out of date but they are the most recent drivers. Here is my specs from the game.

Check out Step 10 in post #2.


"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."

Did you install the game following all of the steps in that post?

Did you do the Dantooine lag fix?

Ahh I didn't do that yet.

Is it the swkotor configuration file?
I looked everythwere and couldnt find a swkotor.ini file.

If so every time I try and add in the line it tells me and save it it just says access denied.
Any suggestions?

It should be right there in the game's main folder, along with the .exe.
