Graphics corruption in KOTOR Graphics glitch
I'm having trouble with Knights of the Old Republic 1--The game starts up fine then after the cinematics, the graphics are corrupted in the surrounding area and all throughout the ship. I would post a picture but not sure how to do it. I have Vista and Knights of the Old Republic 2 runs perfectly. I've added an attachment with my DxDiag report. Any help would be appreciated. Also, just updated my Nvidia drivers--the game would not run at all before.

Except for the fact that it shows all his nVidia driver info as well.

Sounds like a texture problem but I can't say without seeing some screen shots. I normally wouldn't respond if I couldn't help but I'm starting to get tired of some peoples constant need to belittle other people that are only asking for help.

XP SP2 and Admin Rights enabled? What drivers are you using? What drivers were you using? Vista fully patched? Some ppl have said updating DX9 in Vista helped with a few games, might try that. Is your case/hardware clean(i.e: you've removed the dust from the components)?

Just reinstalling the game, reinstalling my video card driver (NVIDIA 8500 GT) and trying to patch the game to version 1.3 (which has lots of problems of its own). therefore I’ve therefore kept the game as the vanilla version. Have you any other ideas?

I had similar problems with Kotor. The problem is not a graphics problem as much as its a problem with SecuROM program that they use to prevent people from abusing the software. Its not compatible 100% with Vista

The best thing to do is go to this site [u]http://www.securom.com/message.asp?m=analysis[/u] and send a analysis file to SecuRom and they will send a update that will work with Vista. It explains how to do it, they will respond back with a patch that will help.

Good luck

Thanks for the help but it didn't work. The textures are still corrupted. Any other ideas?
