Hello, everyone, I'm new here and I'm very pleased to meet you all. Anyways, I'm gonna come out and say it now.

 

Okay... So, after I escape the Leviathan and complete the turret mini-game I get stuck at some loading screen every single time and it never loads and it's just stuck there. Could anyone of you please help me out with this? It's irritating as I want to finish the game and start a new one. -.-; This game is the best game ever that you have to play it more then once because of well to me how detailed it is.

 

Anyways, nice to meet you all.

Hi there,

 

What are your system specs? I have a few solutions to such crashes but I need to know what your specs are so I could make the appropriate suggestions.

 

To post your specs, go into your KotOR directory, open 'swconfig.exe', click 'Scan Hardware' and post what it says. :)

Thank you for responding and I can't wait to see your solutions. And I have them now!

So first I'm just going to discuss some general compatibility issues:

 

Seeing how you have an extremely old Operating System, I'm not sure you can do a lot of these fixes exactly as I know them, since I'm not familiar with OS-s that came before Win XP. I really suggest getting a later operating system, since KotOR was made most compatible with Win XP Service Pack 2, and in later OS-s you can run applications in compatibility mode for previous systems (that includes XP SP2). As far as OSs go, I don't know how you could make the game more compatible, so sorry about that. :/

 

Next up, you have a multi-core CPU, whereas KotOR was designed to run best on single core, so it is best to set the affinity to single core for the game. Again, I have never worked with such old systems, so I do not know if this is the right way to do it on your computer, but this is the common method to set the affinity:

1. Delete the game shortcut (I guess it's on your desktop)

2. Go into the game directory and create a shortcut for swkotor.exe, and drag this on your desktop.

3. Right click on it and go to properties, and in the 'Target:' box ADD [C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /C START "Star Wars - Knights of the Old Republic" /high /affinity 1 ] before what's already there (without the []).

4. Always start the game using this shortcut.

 

It's important to make sure nothing in the directory is 'Read-Only', so the game could change/re-write certain files that it needs to. If you don't allow it to do so, it tends to crash at certain points. You could right-click on the LucasArts folder and go to properties, uncheck 'Read-Only' and set it to apply to all sub- folders and files.

 

It also helps to check 'Run as Administrator' in the Properties of swkotor.exe and swconfig.exe, so there aren't any privilege issues.

 

Now, for general crash fixes:

 

I see you have already tried windowed mode and disabled vertex buffer objects so I don't have to go into those.

 

My additional suggestion would be to temporarily turn down the screen resolution and other graphics settings to the minimum and disable soft shadows, frame buffer and hardware mouse. V-Sync is notoriously known for causing lags and crashes, so I really suggest disabling it, and only re-enabling it if you experience really bad screen tearing.

 

After (and if) you get past the issue, I guess you could turn some of these things back up.

 

Also, I read somewhere that entering the Hangar as Carth (I personally think it applies to any other party member except Revan) tends to cause a crash afterwards, so I recommend always entering the Hangar as your custom character.

 

I hope this helps. :)
