Can anyone please help me?
Try running the installer as an admin (right click, compatibility)

And that pack has some fun games.

I made a thread about this and even tried help from Lucasforums but I STILL can't get it to run. I did everything they said minus the fixing of the Dantooine Lag and, like zman and schruld, the game STILL crashes after the opening scene with the drifting Ebon Hawk (then again, I had no idea what patches to install exactly but I did everything else sans the Dantooine modding). I NEED assistance, please!

Note: Reinstalled and did everything but still same problem

Go into the KOTOR directory (C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\swkotor) and find swconfig.exe. This is the settings utility. Simply check disable movies.

I run KotOR I off of Steam as well...the only problem I have is that it always, without fail, crashes right as I try to free the rest of my party from the cells aboard the Leviathan. Was wondering if anyone knew what the problem is?

Have you tried the steam forums. I;m sure I've seen stuff on there about that bug.

Nah, I figured out the problem - took off the antialiasing and vsync from the graphics options menu and it worked like a charm. Stupid fix, but it worked.

EDIT: went through those forums anyhow and it looks like the game just doesn't like ATI graphics...since I have a Mobility Radeon 4650, that explains a lot. Thanks for the info anyways.

I sort of stumbled across this thread, and i think i may have an answer for many of you who are crashing in game. With the latest patch 1.03 (latest being somewhat of a misnomer), they added a command line into your config file that solved all of my crashing problems.

[Graphics Options]
Disable Vertex Buffer Objects=1

If you do not have this command line in your config file, add it. If you have it, but it is set to zero, set it to 1.

For those who don't know how to add this, just open your config file, found in your KotOR folder, with something like Notepad. Scroll down until you come to the section labeled [Graphics Options] and look for that command line. I believe when i had to fix this error, i needed to add the line entirely.

Prior to that, my game was crashing every few minutes, and it was absolutely impossible to get past the Bridge in the opening act. I think what the problem stems from the games old design, and new graphic cards not needing Buffer Objects. Therefore, every time your card comes across one, it causes an error.

Either way, i've been crash free since adding this to my config file. Hope it helps those of you running it in 7.
