hi everyone, i'm new to this forum but i hope i can get some help for the jedi outcast game.

i'm running the game on a p4 1.6ghz machine running xp sp1 with 256 ram and 16mb s3 graphics card. i have updated the video driver already but apprently 26th april last year was the last time an update was available...oh i'm using the 1.04 patch as well (1.03 still for single player)

i am now currently at the swamp (just reached here from the exploding ship) ...the problem is whenever i try to fight with the 2 shadowtroopers that appear not too far from the start of this level, the computer/screen locks up and basically an 'error log' is created which i have sent to microsoft...apparently it happens everytime i reach there...

i thought it was a problem with my save game so i tried to use an earlier save but the same thing happens ...so i'm suspecting that it probably has sth to do with my machine? (i'm NOT using warez or an illegal copy of the game, its an original store bought game and has worked beautifully until now so i doubt its the disks)

running in safe mode doesn't help either ...(i.e. the same problem happens)

i hope someone has some ideas about what to do...i really want to continue playing this great game! :(

thanks in advance :D

your graphic card might be a bit bad for the swamp. try reducing the graphic detail settings.

thanks for the reply :bows:

i tried that ...tried with low texture detail and low geometric detail ...+ 640x480 resolution and 16 bit ...still the same problem ...tried in single player safe mode which i think would be literally every setting at its lowest? still the same problem ...

anything else i can try? :lookaround:

hmmm...:( save your save files somewhere else and reinstall the game... and check all drivers again... that's all I can say.
