Screen flickering problem


Recommended Posts

Hello. Lately i've been replaying my collection of old games and when i started KotoR2 i found that it seems to have a problem with my PC. When i load the game it's ok, menus are fine no screen flickering whatsoever. But when i start playing the game itself my whole screen goes berserk and just flickers all the time makin my eyes hurt. I tried patching the game, using the HD movies and HD sound packs, everything i managed to find tha would help me out but the problem is still there :|

 

So I was wondering if any of you can provide me assistance ?

 

Here's my dxdiag report for my system and my VGA card

Have you tried turning the anti-aliasing features off, along with the setting below/above that (can't recall the name of the feature, sorry). I've had some graphics problems with these activated. You might also consider changing to a lower resolution (and mhz setting for display) if you haven't done so. The recommended settings the game picks can be too high for practical playing - the 'default' settings it tends to give me can lock up the game for a short time if I get into a fight with more than two opponents.

 

You might also look into playing the game using only one core - K2 wasn't designed to run on duel core systems.

 

One last thing to try is to turn off all back ground programs, such as anti-virus programs, firewalls and any net connections before starting the game. These take up memory that can effect performance, and can also lead to glitches when playing.
