funkyone;3992390Well, good news... for anybody having an issue with sound, you may be able to play WITHOUT turning off the sound... the solution can be found here: LucasArts Technical Support Forums Turns out it's an issue with the channeling/routing of the audio data in Vista, since Vista's sound setup works differently than previous Windows OSes. At the end of that link, there should be a link to download Mss32.dll; just replace it over top of the one in the KotOR2 directory and it supposedly should work... I did that and also to be certain put it in my system32 directory. Will test my KotOR2 now and perhaps maybe I'll find out my issue wasn't so much with graphics (even though the auto-detect says "null" for video) but rather with the sound. Will let ya's know how it goes! Q:-)

The Mss32.dll from KOTOR1 acts in the same way as the one they have to DL. Works like a charm. :)

I strongly agree with Red Rebel. Microsoft makes me sick. The whole error pop ups that might as well say (I AM WINDOWS VISTA! I DARE NOT TOUCH THIS GAME! IT IS DEFILED BY THE POVERTY OF XP!) are driving me crazy. The only good accomplishment Microsoft ever made was Halo. And on top of that we have to make a yearly payment to play online.

Microsoft: founded in 1975 by the Illuminati to ruin your computer experience! Mind you, my home PC is so old it's still got only 224 meg of RAM so there is a chance I'm just frustrated by waiting an hour and a half while installing KOTOR 2 to be told there isn't enough RAM to run the **** thing. Here's an idea, games publishers of the world - put a little system on the first install disc of any game to see if the PC can handle it. It'd save time and effort, and get plenty of good press. Face it, which would you prefer - a little 'Your PC cannot run this game' box when you put the disc in, or a 90 minute wait while you gradually lose the will to live? Sorry if this seems like ranting, but I'm glad i got that off my chest.

Just a question about:

Where exactly is the directory? Can't find it the normal way, and my new Vista Business laptop is proving to be harder to navigate than the Labyrinth.

Thanks in advance for any HEELLP!!!

When I start TSL I can get to the main menu, get to the create a new character screen, do that but it freezes at the end of the opening text crawl... Any ideas?

Hey DingDong good to see you at filefront welcome, as for your Vista problem did you try the Vista Fix?

Ihave vista and it runs but for some reason it looks like it has a really low frame rate, i was having the same problem with the first kotor aswell. Its definately not an issue with insufficient hardware, i'm running a 8800gt, 3gig 667ddr2 ram and an E6600 dual core. Anyone know why this is happening beyond vista sucking ass?

i tried the vista fix but it still doesn't work. it says something about "swkotor2.exe has stopped working" right after the opening scroll. strangely enough, my KOTOR works fine while KOTOR2 does not. don't they have the same requirements?

You have to manually run swkotor2.exe as an administrator.

I found the directory, but now, with depressing frequency, KotOR II stops working, drops out, freezes, or - most annoyingly - keeps running but the visuals become overshadowed by a semitransparent layer of colored lines, except during cutscenes. So, I can watch the Ebon Hawk landing on a planet, then when it loads it looks like the Jedi Exile is going on a drug trip. Saving and reloading doesn't work, although exiting KotOR II used to. Where I live it's summer, so overheating may be the problem, but I'd prefer to consult the experts. I'm running Vista Business, with a Radeon 1100 graphics card, 160 gig HD, 1024 MB 'memory' (I expect that's how the stickers on the outside say RAM) and the Mss32.dll amendment. I'm about to try it with graphics wound down and shadows off (I turned grass off last week).

Oh, and Darth Ding Dong? Vista isn't evil. Microsoft is evil. Vista is merely its weapon, aided by Symantec Corporation. (I have an old Windows XP at home which periodically gets snotty about not reinstalling Norton Antivirus. The PC isn't connected to the internet. Things are set to get worse with Norton Internet Protector on the new Vista, which is likewise).
