Arrow Black screen & crashing on Ebon Hawk, turret minigame.

So my first problem was one after the splashscreen, but I only had to change something in the swkotor2.ini file to fix that.

Now when I get to the Ebon Hawk, I play the turret minigame and kill what I have to. I get the message saying "The Sith have boarded the Ebon Hawk", or whatever, and I click that, and then when I should probably be killing them(?) the screen goes black (music still plays) and then I crash with one of those send/don't send errors.

  • Up-to-date with DirectX 9.0c
  • Nvidia graphics drivers fully updated.
  • Gameplay requirements met.


Any help?
I've searched everywhere.

EDIT: Even if I don't let any of them board the Ebon Hawk, I still crash. *sigh*
It's my favourite game and I just want to play without troubles.

I recommend downloading the mod that lets you skip the turret minigame - http://knightsoftheoldrepublic.filef...ret_Game;71576
Save every 30 secs through the fight on the ebon hawk, and if you crash, the game will start right there, even if you're fighting - save it. Eventually you should pass it, hope this helps.

I'll give that a try, thanks.

Edit: You're a genius. Thank you so much. I can finally play my favourite game uninterrupted !
Edit2: Ughh.. It was fine for a second and then it just started saving and loading the same part. I'll restart and see how it goes.
Edit3: It loads the part where I guess I should be fighting the sith on-board, but then it goes back again and again to the "We've got company!" "The sith have boarded etc etc"...

Hmm, well my next step would be to either keep trying, play around with graphics settings, or forget the mod and kill *every* sith that tries to board, I have the problem too, but I make sure i kill all of them and it doesn't happen to me at all when they can't board. So try hard at that stupid minigame.

I removed the mod and killed them and it worked this time, but now I'm on board I don't know what to do?
I don't see any sith on board and there's nothing to do >.< might've been a bad idea to save when I got on...

Edit: There's nothing on board really? I opened the sealed door and I'm sure there should be a droid there. Nothing to interact with, workbench won't work at all, meh...

Hmm, try warping to the ebon hawk, or reload an earlier save, that is why the game always says: Save often and in different slots, it knows it's going to crash or bug out.

Warping?
And I thought I had a save but I don't. I don't think I want to do everything over again, I guess I'll just uninstall and wait for SW:TOR... ):

Still no luck. I made another save before boarding the ebon hawk and tried with and without the supposed "fix" file (just made everything worse, there are no good comments from what I can see, either).

Any final suggestions?

EDIT: Got it working again somehow. After the long conversation with Kreia and Atton I opened up my character sheet to check my light-side points and crashed, though.
EDIT2: Crashing on the loading screen now. Gee, whatever will be next...

Just remember the CurSithLord=3 fix must be done every time you want to play, also, i tried it, and warping seems to help skip the stupid turret altogether and the boarding party.

Thanks... I managed to bypass it and I'm at the next area now with the Czerka and the Exchange and whatnot, but I'm randomly crashing when opening things such as the level-up menu. I think I'm going to have to leave it. I've been told it might be because I need the old drivers.
