BUGS: A couple of issues.


Recommended Posts

Ok i'll start with my system specs and then go on to relate the various problems i am having.

 

PC:

AMD 64 4000+

PCI-Express X800 XT ViVo

SATA HDD's

Hercules Digifire 7.1 Soundcard.

Logitech MX510 Mouse.

Memorex Keyboard

 

OS + Runtimes

Winxp sp2

mcafee firewall 8.0

mcafee antivirus 9.0

JRE - 1.4.2.something.

 

I run the game at 1280x1024, with all graphics settings Antialiasing/Aniso

maxed out. note: the same graphical glitches that happen occur even without these turned on.

 

Right thats the basics over with.

 

The actual bugs are:

 

Graphical:

 

1) My characters occasionally slip into the floor etc, this might be some sort of clipping issue i dont know.

2) Upon startup my screen flickers with some angry red lines.

3) When exiting the game, my graphical settings are not restored it remains at kotor2 level brightness, not usual desktop brightness.

4) Characters getting stuck in objects.

 

Gameplay:

 

1) The droid gets stuck and wont move often despite movement in combat being ticked.

2) After combat has ended the droid still doesnt want to move.

3) Probably the issue the others stem from, it takes forever for characters to move (any of them) after they come out of combat..almost like i have to wait for the music to end.

4) The position the droid often gets stuck at is on the 2nd part of peragus, after you have played your human char for the first time, he goes down a ramp to fight 2 droids and then just gets stuck.

5) My brother also plays this game and he is getting errors when he does the races. Despite getting awesome times - it keeps telling him he's had a bad crash?.

 

Ok now this is probably the bit you dont want to read, but the previous game gained most of its success on the pc, i highly suggest next time focusing more time on the pc version and then porting it to x-box. PC Gamers, myself included (as i cant get out of peragus due to the droid bug) are expecting quality and a good experience.

 

Now i know its not as easy as sticking your finger up at lucasarts, but that is what you need to do if your going to retain some quality - hell i'd have waited another 3 months for the game on pc just to have planet of the droids and all these other supposed things which evidently have been cut. Next time tell lucasarts "hell no". Its a starwars game, its going to sell like hotcakes anyway.

I played the game through several times on an X800XTPE(agp) and fortunately did not encounter the issues you experienced. When I exit the game, my gamma resets to the ATI desktop factory setting, which is actually too dark for my CRT monitor.

This is probably a dumb question but did you try doing a quicksave and reloading. Seems to fix the problem for some people.

No i didnt try quicksaving and reloading, but its a constant issue with my save games, i'm tempted to stop playing altogether until a patch is released.

 

I am using the omegadrivers based on the 5.1 cats, i expect there will be new versions of these drivers out soon, but i am definetly more concerned with the gameplay issues.

 

I dont really have to many graphical problems apart from those listed occasionally.
