I have a Vista Laptop (through necessity not choice as my old XP laptop died) and I want to play my JK and MotS again. I've installed them fine, changed their compatibilities and ticked the Disable Visual Themes, Disable Desktop Composition and run as administrator boxes as the Vista-related sticky on this board helpfully suggested.
In JK, the games starts fine, plays the first cutscene where Jerec kills the Jedi, then crashes.
In MotS, the game appears to start as the screen goes black, I hear a 'bleep' type sound and then it crashes.
No matter what I do I cannot get any further than described on both games. I am at a complete loss as to how to fix them both, and would greatly appreciate any help or advice given.
