Cannot Run on Windows 8.1

Hello, I'm having trouble launching the game. I insert the disk, and the launcher runs fine. I click 'Game', and up pops a picture of the Ebon Hawk, then I get this error message: http://i.imgur.com/GNAiPC4.png

Please help, I really want to play this game without having to pay for a Steam copy. Note: I have am nVidia graphics card, and am running it in compatibility mode (Windows XP SP 2) on Windows 8. I did install the latest patch, IC disabled movies, and I did try unchecking all CPUs except CPU 0 in the Task Manager. Also, someone suggested I add this line to the .ini file, which I did: "Disable Vertex Buffer Objects=1"

EDIT: Note that I'm running from the original CDs, not the Steam version.

Note: I was about to point you to Steam, but never mind.

I'm no expert, but I can recommend the use of Steam, which makes it work on Win 7. I understand where you're coming from though.

But... both games cost 6.99 each on Steam. That's not a bad price. Especially since the second game hasn't been on Steam half as long as the original. In the end, if you can't find any other way, then I would suggest Steam. It means that you don't have to worry about losing/damaging a CD. It's there, ready to download.

Note: If anyone else can help the original poster, then fine




A nice song, fits them perfectly.

Have you tried launching the game from swkotor.exe?
