Hey guys, just got KOTOR 1 and having some issues. I got it working yesterday, somehow. It was not working initially- after the first screen, it world disappear, but I think I turned on compatability mode for win xp and it worked. After about 2 hours, it hung on a loading screen and in the middle of an auto-save and froze (maybe because I alt-tabbed at that exact moment because I didn't realise it was going to go to a loading screen/auto save). I had to kill it with task manager. After that, when I tried to resume any of my saves, it locked up on the loading screen. Twice I have managed to get in-game (it takes about 3 minutes to load) but the game essentially doesn't run- very laggy, very low FPS, freezes, etc. This also happens when I start a new game. I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times but get the same thing every time. I have also validated the files with Steam twice and both times (most recently after a fresh install, deleted all local content and re-downloaded everything) it found a problem and said it fixed it, but the game still won't work right.
It may also have been related to a widescreen hack I tried to use that didn't work, from http://www.widescreengamingforum.com/wiki/WSGF_Hacks_for_SW:KOTOR. I followed the instructions exactly but it didn't work, so I used the program to undo the hack just to be safe, but I am wondering if perhaps it didn't undo properly and screwed something up that isn't getting deleted when I unstall the game through steam (although those 2 hours I played were after dealing with the widescreen thingy, so it really should have caused me a problem there...)
