Angry KOTOR II worked for years, but not anymore

EDIT: Got it working!

I've had KOTOR II since 2005 and it always had occasional crashes, but now it crashes right at the beginning menu screen before the image even pops up. Only the music plays, and the traditional Windows XP error reporting pops up. I uninstalled it and reinstalled and the crash still occurs. I also removed all mods. Any ideas?

Here's the info:

Newer video drivers? Try the Dantooine lag fix:

  • When you find it, just double-click on the file to open it in Notepad.
  • Scroll down the file until you find the Graphics Options
  • Under the last line ("last line" as in the last line of the list of entries under "Graphics Options", NOT the last line of "swkotor(2).ini), add "Disable Vertex Buffer Objects=1", without the quotes.
  • Goto File, then Save.

Cool.

It's been a necessary fix for DX10 hardware, but now I guess that it's needed for DX9 hardware now as well with these newer drivers.
