  1. Maybe the Navy commercials? That's Keith David--he was in Mass Effect (Captain Anderson) and does sound kinda like Zez, but it's not him, I don't think.
  2. Hmmm, this is KOTOR 1 you're trying to play, correct? Not KOTOR 2? I've heard KOTOR 2 having issues on the Intel's onboard graphics, but not KOTOR 1. In any case, there may be a solution out there for you. Let me check to see if I can find any information.
  3. We'll probably need some more information before we can help you out. Go here, and post all of the relevant information. The only general solutions I can give you now is updating your video card drivers, try disabling the sound and then playing to see if it works, and tinker with the video options to see if some combination works.
  4. Yes, I think the G0-T0 character was very compelling. I agree with everyone else regarding his uselessness when it comes to him being in your party. But let's put it like this: in the original KOTOR, everyone always talks about the big twist in the story involving Revan. KOTOR II didn't go that route with its main story, but there certainly is a twist regarding G0-T0's background (one that I didn't discover/comprehend until the third time I played through the game). I think his history was very well done, making for a great story. It's unfortunate that his history is so easy to miss in t
  5. Alrighty, sorry for the triple post, but I'll make this one worth it, promise. I finally got to the Kavar meeting and past all these Onderon loading blocks. This was done by disabling the sound, and turning off anti-aliasing in the game. I believe this was a driver conflict with both the 8800 GTS (KOTOR2 doesn't support these new drivers) AND a combination of the sound drivers, which KOTOR 2 has always been sketchy with in terms of Vista. Note that I had to turn BOTH of these things off for the game to work properly. Just one of them off wouldn't get the job done. Thought I'd share wit
  6. Man, I tell you, Onderon really has it out for me. I replayed through it again, making sure I ran it as an administrator every time (at least my saved games are accounted for now). Everything was perfectly smooth until I first got to Onderon. Right after you get your starport visa and the guard asks you questions before going into the city, the game crashes. Same as before--it crashes right when it's loading between the two locations. It's quite irksome! Funny that the freezing is occurring in a different place, though.
  7. Whoops, sorry qt3, my mistake. I'm playing through KOTOR 2 again, to see if the same bug will pop up on Onderon. Downloaded the Skip Peragus Mod, and am about halfway done with Telos. I'll be sure to make Dxun my first planet. I should be able to know shortly. I hope it was a one time thing!
  8. Yup, I made sure to be able to view hidden files. Crazy thing!
  9. Bravo gt3! Running it as an administrator makes it go to the fullscreen every time AND it detects no saved games. Well done! Something I should have considered before. KOTOR2 must have needed administrative privileges to access the swkotor2.ini file. Interesting that when you don't run it as an admin, it reverts back to the software's older settings... Now if there was only a way to back up the non existent saved games...*sigh*
  10. I did this. I went to the search engine, typed in "*.sav" and had it search both of my disks. And...yup, you guessed it, ONLY found the two saves that I had backed up recently. But KSE and KOTOR2 are still reading the six to eight other saved games! This is madness! And I've got my preferences set so that I can view hidden files. So so strange. Edit: Here's something that might help the situation (or complify it ): As you remember, I uninstalled KOTOR2 completely and reinstalled it. After that, I ran my save game to see if it worked--it didn't. Something I noticed was that at the star
  11. One more thing: I completely uninstalled KOTOR 2. When it asked if I wanted to keep my save games, I said no. I went to reinstall it and, guess what; my old saved games were still there (even though the /save folder was empty). Completely baffling.
  12. That's the kicker, though. The game DOES detect them, and even loads them. But they don't exist in the /save folder?! Weird, weird. But yeah, I'm certain you're right. I'm probably going to have to just start over if I want to truly fix this. I've tried multiple .exe's now and have gotten partial success. On the latest "upgrade," I was able to travel to other areas without the game crashing on me. But, no matter what, right after I talk to Dhagon Ghent to go to the Catina, the game crashes. Doesn't matter which .exe I'm using on that one.
  13. Also, I have the KSE editor, and IT reads all eight the save games (even though I can only see two in the /save directory). Isn't the /save folder the only place KSE looks for save games? A big WTF is in order here--I'm thoroughly confused as to why there's only two save games in my folder when I have eight of them.
  14. No, I didn't download anything from SecuRom. Maybe I'll look into that. That still can't explain where the heck all those save games are, though? I'm really confused with that. Where is KOTOR2 reading the save games from? If they're not in the save directory, where could they be (I've tried searching for the files as well and can't find them)?
  15. I was afraid of something like that. I've played through the game a million times before so it's no worry. I have very basic C programming skills...so I'm not going to go through that headache. Thanks for the reply.
