What are you serious? did you get the unofficial patches!
Solution 1 – Try running the game in the compatibility mode
Since the compatibility could be an issue, the first thing we’re going to try is running the game in the compatibility mode. And here’s how to do that:
Find Knights of the Old Republic shortcut and right click it.
Choose Properties from the menu and go to the Compatibility tab.
Check the Run this software in compatibility mode for and choose older version of Windows such as Windows 8 or Windows XP.
Click Apply and then OK.
Solution 2 – Disable Frame Buffer Effects and Soft Shadows
These are some old options that don’t work on newer platforms, so it’s best to disable them. To do this you need to do the following:
Start the game.
Go to the Options menu.
Select Graphics. Next go to Advanced Graphics Options.
Find and uncheck Frame Buffer Effects and Soft Shadows options.
Solution 3 – Set the CPU priority and affinity
The next thing we’re going to try, if you’re still unable to play Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic on your Windows 10 computer is to change the CPU priority and affinity. To do that, just follow these steps:
Locate swkotor.exe (it should be in your installation directory, or if you have Steam version of the game, it will be located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\swkotor), right click the .exe file and choose Properties.
In the Target box add the following lines to the Target location:
/high /affinity 1
For example, if you have Steam version of Knights of the Old Republic your target field should look like this:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\swkotor\swkotor.exe /high /affinity 1
Click Apply then OK to save the changes.
Solution 4 – Uncheck the Read-only property of the game directory
Locate the installation directory of your game and right click it.
Choose Properties from the list.
Make sure that Read-only property is unchecked.
Click Apply and OK to save the changes.
Solution 5 – Edit the game configuration file to run the game in Window mode
Locate the swkotor.ini file and open it with Notepad. This is configuration file for the game and it should be located in the game directory.
Locate the following line:
and change it to:
In the [Graphic Options] section add the following line:
Save the file.
Run the game using the swkotor.exe file from game directory. Bear in mind that running the game from Steam Library will undo these changes, so remember to run it from the installation directory.
That’s it, some of these solutions should solve your problem with playing Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic on Windows 10.
Other then that TELL ME what your graphics card is?
Look man, I'm pretty ignorant in what I'm doing. I don't know how to figure out the graphics card on my laptop. theres a sticker on it indicating that its an ATi Raedon "Premium Graphics" on it, but that doesn't mean shit because I bought this laptop in 2009. I'm running pretty ancient hardware here. I just figured I'd get the hang of PC gaming on this old dionsaur before dropping a couple grand on something more modern. It seemed like on my laptop from 2009, running a game from 2003 would be a cinch. But it literally doesn't work.
On a side note, Star Wars Battlefront 2 works great. I'm not as used to the controls on PC though, so I got my XBone controller so I get can back into the swing of it against the AI. It doesn't work, obviously. If you have any advice, I'd appreciate that too.
Yes, I'm totally serious. I've been on console my entire life (other than playing Diablo and Warcraft 2 when I was a kid back in the 90's). SORRY if I'm somehow offensive, but I'd really like to play games on better systems and between the ease of upgrading hardware, modding, and backwards compatibility, PC stomps consoles out.
I'm attaching a screenshot of what I could find of my system.
Why don't you ask Gog support? Maybe there's a way to get them working.
How do I get in contact with GOG support? I apologize for any pain caused by your rolling eyes.
