Windows 7: movement controls not working on old Star Wars game?

Windows 8 Pro (32-bit)

Intel Poulsbo (GMA500) Dissatisfaction Group thread [Facebook]
Microsoft set intel/nvidia/ati/etc up with the additional task of making an "icd" driver kit that adds opengl support to their cards for windows. I've looked around and ours doesn't have one. Here is the technical breakdown of the product in our chipsets.
Intel SCH US15W(contains
Gma 500(which contains
powervr SGX535 3d core plus VXD370 hd decoder
and a generic unspecified VESA chip for 2d/code/decode and general functions

The onboard included imagination technologies firmware isn't used by the drivers at all, instead:
The drivers were worked on in early '09 by tungsten graphics but they quit.
When the new Moorestown chipset hits the streets the current team of intel engineers is supposed to have a brand new driver based on gallium 3d ready. This is supposed to be first quarter '10.

Our chipset is a foray by intel into new territories. Old technology like serial ports were removed from our chipset. It's just the drivers that are lacking , we really have a quite powerful and scalable evolved system at our disposal. If you used the heavy 6cell batteries from standard laptops we'd also have massive battery life. The only thing wrong with this chipset is that it's still parallel ata(not serial ata).

I really can't wait until the drivers are ready. I'm guessing that they will bump up the 3d graphics WEI to 51 from 2.3

So I've been reading up on your issue, and it seems that integrated graphics chipsets cause nothing but problems in KotOR 2: | Support

Here's a thread about the issue on developer Obsidian's KotOR 2 forum: Integrated graphic chipset & KOTOR2 - Obsidian Forum Community

Keep your fingers crossed that the next driver update fixes it, but I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't :/
