Windows 7: anyone tried KOTOR?

Alright, new drivers from nVidia don't do anything. They'll let you play for a while, but after defeating certain creatures the game will crash.


Found the older drivers, going through them systematically and testing them. Also going to try the beta for the next release.

Results will follow.

Hi,

i'm using Windows 7 RC with newest updates.
i have a ati radeon x1950 series
kotor v1.03

my problem the same as the most have: kotor crashes during start and the kotor-hardware-test says my obengl 1.1.0 is to old, i'd need v. 1.4.0. (that was, when i used the newest updates of windows 7 today 4.7.09)
then i downloaded the newest ati-driver for my video cart directly from the ati-home- page, tried kotor, same problem

so i don't know, what to do know.


i'm gonna try psycokings solution. but i'd prefer the solution to downgrade my drive. problem: i haven't find an old driver yet

does anybody know one?


edit:

damn it, can't download psycokings nocd, the fault:

found an older driver: ATI Radeon X1950 Treiber Download

but i can't install, because:

Setup was unable to find components that can be installed on your current hardware or software configuration.

I know, i don't have the required win xp of course, but im running the setup in comp-mode

i absolutely don't know, what to do now. does anyone?

I can play KOTOR2 without any compatibility setting on until you get to the turbolift on Paragus. It crashed right before it got done loading the next part. I can't remember if there's a video there that might be causing the problem. I'll try it again in different compatibility modes sometime later.

I found that if you go into the graphics setting before launching the game it will work. /late response

In case anyone's curious, I managed to get around whatever issue there was by running the game in compatibility mode for Vista SP2. I tried XP SP3 first but for whatever reason my saved game didn't show up when I ran it that way.

Which drivers are you guys using for kotor 2?? I can't get past the launch screens, gets to about the point where the new game,load,ect menus should appear and then crashes.

I am using 186.18 with a geforce 260gtx (192 steam proccesors version).

Tried different compat modes with no luck.

KOTOR 1 works fine for me.

I'm using the latest one for my graphics chipset. I couldn't get past the intro when trying to play on Vista, so either something about the newer driver, 7, or a combination of both is working.

I also made sure to update KOTOR2 to the newest version (1.0b) before trying to play.

Anybody with an nvidia card able to tell me which drivers are working for the game?? I have no been able to get past the loading screens when I run the game with neither admin nor any of the compat modes. But its still problematic and very unstable. If I make a quick character I can get to the game but for a custom character it will crash when press play after creating the character.

I have pretty much the same problem with KOTOR 1, I start the .exe file and it crashes instantly. I have updated my graphics drivers with the newest from nvidia.com, for Win7, I haven't tried patching the game till the latest version though. Anybody have any ideas on solving this problem? Should I try to patch KOTOR till the 1.03 version, and which drivers should I install for it to run?

Kotor 1 works for me with patch 1.03 and drivers 186.18.
