Sorry but I don't have any experience with AMD processors or graphics cards. I will say that I experienced choppy framerates, a.k.a. lag, on Dantooine in the fields around Khoonda using an Intel Pentium 4 processor and an NVIDIA 9800 GTX+ graphics card.
You might want to review the following threads to see if the information they provide might be useful
i have the same problem except it only seems to happen on dantooine around the khooda biulding and the fields around it. I changed around the graphics and still does the same thing. everywhere else it runs perfectly.
ATI Radeon3200 Graphics
Dual Core 1.20 GHz
windows 7 64
and its a laptop
Becuase of this i cnnot get into the khooda building or the crystal cave
I updated it to 1.0a, then to 1.0b, and it's marginally better, but the problem still stands. I get stuck in the run position, not able to go anywhere apart from turn round, and the other problems too. Even when using the .exe, it's still the same.
Does anybody know anything that could fix this?
Well it appears to be a 32 bit capable single core processor, which shouldn't be causing any problems with the game.
The only other things I can think of are making sure the game is fully updated (the latest update is here: http://www.lucasarts .com/support/update/kotor2.html ). Also, you can try launching the game from the .exe file instead of using the launcher, though that fix is usually for issues where the game never starts up properly.
Other than that I don't know what could be causing the glitch.
The scan hardware program flags the video card because the game is so old that it was not designed to recognize the newer video cards and drivers.
To determine your processor, click the Start menu, click Run..., type "winmsd.exe" (without the quotes) and click OK. When the System Information box comes up, make sure System Summary is highlighted on the left, and browse through the pane on the right until you see Processor listed under the Item column. Under the Value column, it will give a description of the processor. Copy that description into your next reply.
Yeh the updated drivers are allowing me to play the game, but the problem still stands.
I'm not so sure it's dual core. It's an Acer 5050 laptop, but I haven't seen anywhere that it's dual core.
When I open the game as usual, but don't start it, and instead press configure, and then click scan hardware, it scans it, and everything passes with a green circle except the video-that has a yellow circle saying I don't meet the recommended video card specifications. Is that the problem? Is that what makes it lag so much? And is there any way I can fix that without having to buy and install another video card?
Also, your 64 bit windows may interfere with normal gameplay. Search the forums or google the dll file (I think its ms32.dll or something similar) which "patches" the game to work better under a 64 bit OS.
When I start the game, it's fine, but then the opening screen, with Sion, it's very slow. when I play the game, the cutscenes & videos are very slow, and when I try to walk around, nothing happens for a while, while I'm stuck in a position which looks like frozen in the middle of a run, kind of frozen on-the-move (if that makes sense). Then if I can move, it jumps ahead to however long I held the move forward button down for. It also doesn't let me open doors or click or anything really, just generally slow and glitchy. What can this be, and how can I fix it?
