Kotor 2 running but crashing frequently

I know that Kotor 2 has had many issues with just running the game at all, but that is not my issue. My game runs fine. No lag, no graphical issues at all. But, it crashes frequently, such as before or after a cut scene or a loading screen. I've tried running in compatibility mode and I've tried the several fixes that I've seen on multiple forums and none of them have worked nor have I seen the same issue. Most issues I've heard were people couldn't run the game at all!

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 "swconfig.exe". For each file, right-click on it, select "properties", then "compatibility", 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. Also, please specify which version of Windows you are using because the game can't ID anything newer than XP.

Reinstall the game according to the large-print instructions at the top of the second post in this thread.

Alright I just did all the steps. Hopefully it fixed everything. Could having TSLRCM and a few other mods have to do with the crashing? Most other mods are stat changes and difficulty changes.

Alright I just started my play through and I'm having the same issue I've had last time I did all the suggestions on the thread you told me to view. (Yes I've seen it but I was under the impression I did a step wrong) Basically, my game lags to the point where it's unplayable. My computer can clearly run it perfectly fine so I don't know what the issue is. But, I'm sorta assuming that it's the "run in compatibility" option that's messing up my game. Only problem is that seems to be a major step in fixing the crashing issues. =[

Never mind, even turning off compatibility doesn't change it. I don't know what the problem is. If I install the game without doing all the steps (which I've tried) the game runs smoothly with the exception of the game crashing frequently. =/

Did you patch the game?

Did you do the Dantooine lag fix?

Have you set the game to run on a single CPU core?

I just recently did that today but now my game won't start at all. (Already had game patched) It comes up with an error message that says "Loadlibrary failed with error 126: The specified module could not be found." This just shortly happened after I installed ATI tray tools to see if I could work with that but now my game is not working at all. Don't know if that has anything to do with it but I already uninstalled it and that did nothing to help. Tried reinstalling the game multiple times and that also didn't help.

Could you please run another hardware scan and post the results like you did before?

Are you double-clicking in the swconfig.exe in the game folder?

Uninstall the game, then download, install and run Revo Uninstaller and try installing the game again.

I know:

Sorry for the long reply, I've been away for a bit. I think I've found out what the problem is. I think I removed or deleted atioglxx.dll from the game's directory or something like that. All I know is I moved something that I wasn't supposed to and it also screwed up Kotor 1 and I moved atioglxx.dll into Kotor 1's main directory and it fixed it.

By the way, I have Windows 7 so do I still have too set CPU affinity to a single core? In your instructions, it says Windows 7 already does it.

Well I followed all the instructions this time top to bottom (except for setting the CPU thing) and launched the game with no mods at all. Not even TSLRCM. My game still runs a little slow. Not as laggy as before but still not as smooth. Anything I can do to better the game? It's strange because without any of the fixes, a fully modded Kotor 2 runs smoothly except crashes a lot!

For KotOR 1, yes; for KotOR 2, no.

Are you able to run the hardware scan now?

Also, I think it automatically sets the CPU. When I manually tried setting the CPU affinity, all boxes were already unchecked except for 0.

As I said, Windows 7 does that automatically for KotOR 2.

Your game isn't patched, and you need to set Fullscreen=1 under both [Display Options] and [Graphics Options].


"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."

How is my game not patched? I patched it before everything else, like instructed in your fix.

That's strange. I even tried running the patch again just to make sure and a window popped up called "Patch error" and it said "Old file not found. However, a file of the same name was found. No update done since file contents do not match."

You could have the UK version of the game. In that case, you'll need the international patches for the UK version. There are two of them, and you'll need to apply both.

Had to ask.

When you run the patch, are you setting it to run in XP SP2 compatibility mode as an administrator?


"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."

I had no idea you could/had too do that. The UK patches? Or the normal patches?

Both.

Are you installing the game according to the large-print instructions at the top of the second post in this thread?

Alright I tried running as admin and in compatibility for both patches and it still gets the patch error. And yes I am. All instructions. Should I try a reinstall?

Yeah, I would. Make sure you reboot the computer before trying to reinstall again.

Sorry you're having so much trouble.

EDIT: If you're trying to patch with the SecuROM swkotor2.exe in the folder instead of the original .exe, it will give you exactly the same error. The patch must be applied with the original .exe in place.

Should I start with normal patches or UK patches? And it's quite alright, if this doesn't help, hopefully the bundle pack that's coming out soon will come out with a few fixes to their game. xD

I would start with the US patch. Make sure that you don't replace the swkotor2.exe until after you've applied the patch.

If it still gives you that error with the original .exe, then you most likely have the UK version.

For some reason, after I follow all instructions, it says that my game isn't patched when I run the kotor scan but before doing all steps, it says my game is patched when I run a scan. I'm so confused.

This is the most recent swinfo.txt that states that my game isn't patched after I follow all the steps in the thread.

It seems as if the SecuROM provided is what's screwing up with the patch. I put back in the original .exe and ran the scan again and it showed that the game version was patched up fine. I also launched the game unmodded and it ran smoothly. Don't know if I'll have the crashing issue though, haven't played through it long enough, only made a character just to see if my game would run smooth.

424 is 1.0a.
Seems the other exe needs the 1.0a-1.0b patch instead of the 1.0-1.0b US patch...
