Yeah I experienced a bug in KotOR. When I bought the game I ran it on my old pc (Dell 1.5GHz, Geforce2, integrated sound, 512 RAM), and the graphics were alright (it wasnt a gaming machine or anything).
In the 2nd "level" (after you've crash landed on the planet and you're in an alien apartment) the game would skip sooo bad. We're talking less than 1 Frame Per Sec. So I would have to save the game, exit, and disable all the ingame sound (i think it's actually a troubleshooting option on the autorun menu) and restart the game.
This was kinda interesting to me. Just the fact that the first level of gameplay worked great with the sound and music, but once I got to the next level everything skipped horridly. I tried re-enabling the sound once I got to different parts of the game later on and in some places the game would perform great, and in other places the game would skip.
It sucked really bad, but disabling sound was the only thing that I tried and it worked for me. So after I disabled the sound, the game played (graphically) great. At least I got to play
the game (I just made my own sounds, which is kinda fun)
I didn't look for any updates to the game, or any updates for my drivers, but that's just because I didn't really care that much about it. KotOR was a good game with or without the sound.
Just curious, has anyone else experienced a similar error?
