TSL Doesn't Start

Recommended Posts

I'm having a problem with TSL...it simply doesn't start. I've changed every single option I possibly can, and the only time it starts is when I disable sound, though I'm sure my sound drivers are updated. If I don't disable sound, swkotor2.exe remains in the process list and never reaches application stage, staying at about 11,484K of memory.

 

It's an Intel Core-2 Duo E8300 running at 2.83GHz for each core, and 2GBs of ram, running Windows XP Pro SP3. The graphics card is an nVidia GeForce 9500 GT with 512MB DDR3. I had the same problem on my old computer in fact, which was a crappy, minimum-spec computer with a GeForce FX 5500, though it didn't used to have that problem (It worked when I bought it, but I came back after a year of not playing TSL & this problem showed up. WTF?)

 

Here's the info from the TSL Configuration Utility:

I do have KotOR I, and it works perfectly, though it crashes sometimes if I don't turn off one CPU for it.

Added KotOR I info ^/_\^

Nope. No change. The older OGL driver I managed to install is 6.14.11.8122, and it still doesn't work, though now it takes 11,408K of memory. So it's still broken, but it's smaller. Should I rollback farther? If I need to, please provide a link to older drivers, because these were hard enough to find.

Yep. No effect. I said already, the only way the program reaches the application stage (i.e., it shows up under the applications list & actually starts) is by disabling sound.

 

As a matter of fact, I found the included disk for my 9500 and installed its drivers, which were even older than the rolled-back drivers. (now it's at nVidia driver version 6.14.11.7519) and the program still doesn't work. I really don't think it's the video drivers at all...

Well, the drivers are provided by AnalogDevices, version 5.10.1.5860, created 7/8/2008, and signed by Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatibility Publisher. The sound is integrated, and the drivers came with the computer (though I think I had to turn to the internet to get actual working drivers...)

Nothing on Windows Update for sound drivers. Hmmm...I'm gonna try to reinstall the sound drivers, but I'm having trouble figuring out where to uninstall the current ones. *feels stupid* I know this, I know it... >/_\<

 

EDIT: Nevermind, I figured it out and reinstalled them. Guess what? FAIL.
