_________Recommended System Requirements_________
System: 1.6 GHz CPU or equivalent RAM: 512 MB RAM Video Memory: 128 MB VRAM 3D Sound Card: Yes I have more than that stuff on my computer so i should be running the game fine, even if i turn my settings down to low the lag still happens, i have updated my game but still lots of lag! PLEASE HELP!
You need to add the line to your swkotor.ini file under video option DisableVertexBufferObjects=1 That'll kill your lag for dantooine.
It happened to me too. And could you put that into english please?
BTW does that also work for KOTOR 2, i would love it then i could finish that game too, but still KOTOR 2 is not as good as KOTOR 1. I way didnt expect that little Revan thing coming my way, WHY DOES NO ONE ELSE BELEIVE ME IN THE GAME THEY JUST LAUGH I AM!
It lagged on dantooine in kotor 2 too. Why is it always dantooine? I never had lag problems anywhere else...
you dont know how good i felt when the sith bombarded the enclave landing!
Why did you feel good? Were you dark side?
no, it was good because i didnt have to go back to the lag-o-world
For the visually impaired. Open up notepad then got to it's file menu and Open then browse to where you installed K1 and look for the file SWKOTOR.ini and open it. To do this you must change file types in notepad to all types. Scroll down the open ini file and find (VIDEO OPTIONS) go to the very last entry under it and add the line Disable Vertex Buffer Objects=1. Then save the over the original ini file and run the game. Look maa no lag on Dantooine.
Does this work on K2? Yes. It was originally a solution for ATi cards that suffered severe low FPS and freezing on dantooine but works with all cards for K1 and K2.
Yes! thanks everyone who helped, this help should be posted on the mainpage somewhere on the side.
