Widescreen resolution[edit]

Not necessary for Steam version.
Widescreen fixes will break the minimap location reporting, which can be solved using the UI fixes.[7]
Widescreen fixes resolutions of 1366x768 and under will not display dialogue option text correctly and are unplayable.[8]
Video tutorial for widescreen available here
This uses a slightly older version of the game with some bugs (not necessary for the version).[9]
Make necessary changes[citation needed]
  1. Apply the latest Patches (retail versions only).
  2. Download this file (skip this step for the version).
  3. Extract to the installation folder.
  4. Run the game as an admin, then change the resolution to anything else.
  5. Download and run the Universal Widescreen patcher.
  6. Locate the game, set the desired custom resolution and then patch it.
  7. Go to the installation folder.
  8. Open swkotor2.ini, then delete swkotor.undo1.
  9. Change the following lines in order to set the custom resolution.


Bear in mind that the order of width and height is reversed.

Ultra-widescreen resolution[edit]

Ultra-Widescreen fixes will break the minimap location reporting, which can be solved using the UI fixes (instructions included below).
Using Flawless Widescreen can cause memory leaks, which in turn can corrupt the current save file.
Apply the following instructions[citation needed]
  1. Download and run the Flawless Widescreen application.
  2. In Flawless Widescreen, search and install the 'STAR WARS : KOTOR II' plugin.
  3. Download the updated Widescreen UI Fix by Achilles.
  4. Extract the contents to a folder other than the Override folder (e.g. Desktop).
  5. Select 1920x1080 for 21:9 and copy the contents of the selected folder into Override.


Unfortunately there are no 2560x1080 (21:9) version files, but the 1920x1080 (16:9) version works and displays just fine.
The Flawless Widescreen application must be up and running every time before launching the game.


Windowed[citation needed]
  1. Go to the configuration file(s) location.
  2. Edit swkotor2.ini.
  3. Add AllowWindowedMode=1 under [Graphics Options].
  4. Change FullScreen=1 to FullScreen=0.

Full Screen Movies[edit]

This method does not work on latest game version.
Guide located hereArchived (it is not necessary to edit your .bik files)
Requires the No-CD cracked executable, used in the above Widescreen fix.
Instructions[citation needed]
  1. Open swkotor2.exe with a hex editor such as HxD.
  2. Determine your desired movie resolution expressed in hexadecimal notation, and reverse the order of the bytes. Each byte is two hexadecimal characters, so you want to make sure that you're not entering the hexidecimal string backwards but are instead separating it into bytes (2 character chunks) and then reversing the byte order (the reversal has to do with the order data is stored in and read from memory, which is called endianness). For example, 1920 in decimal notation is 0780 in hexadecimal notation, which is 8007 with the bytes reversed. 1080 in dec is 0438 in hex, which becomes 3804 with reversed bytes.
  3. Replace 80 02 with your desired width and E0 01 with your desired height in the following two places (search for these hex sequences):

The resulting hex sequences should look like this, for a 1920x1080 resolution:

Recommended graphical mods (Steam)[edit]

This section may require cleanup to meet basic quality standards. The specific problem is: Needs descriptions for the individual mods. You can help by modifying the article. The discussion page may contain useful suggestions.
Mod list
  • Canonical Jedi Exile 1.2 - Modifies the fifth Caucasian female head to match Meetra Surik's official look, as described in external material.
  • Fixed Lightsaber Colors (#1) or Fixed Lightsaber Colors (#2) - Change the lightsaber colors to more closely match those in the movies and other media.
  • Widescreen UI (stretch fix) - Although native 16:9 support was added in the Steam version, many UI elements are still stretched from 4:3. This mod fixes the remaining stretched assets. Not compatible with controller support.

Issues fixed[edit]

'Stopped working'[edit]

Error fixable by going into windowed mode or by changing Nvidia Control Panel settings.
Error occurs after the company logos and before the main menu, or after clicking on 'Load Game' from the main menu.
Full error message: 'Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords has stopped working'.
Switch to windowed mode[11]

Switching to windowed mode sometimes fixes this issue..

Activate discrete graphics card[12]

Make sure non-Intel graphics card is being used.Intel integrated graphics seems to work for the Steam version but not the retail version in some cases.

Change Nvidia Control Panel settings[13]

If you have a newer Nvidia GPU and your game keeps crashing when you click 'Load Game' from the main menu, a detailed solution for this can be found here.[14] The critical detail seems to be changing Threaded Optimization in the Nvidia Control Panel to OFF

Disable 'Frame Buffer Effects'[citation needed]

If the game crashes after initial character creation and an AMD/ATI video card is in use, disabling Frame Buffer Effects in the game's Advanced Graphics Options may fix the issue.

atioglxx.dll from AMD Catalyst 14.4 may allow 'Frame Buffer Effects' to work with AMD/ATI cards as described here

Disable 'Shadows' setting[citation needed]

If the game crashes unexpectedly from time to time, disabling the shadows can fix it. For example the crash may be at the Ebon Hawk, on the Prologue level, when approaching the Quadlaser turret.

Stuttering or Freezing after combat / Unable to move the character[edit]

This can be fixed by limiting maximum frame rate.[15]
Cap the framerate[citation needed]
Capping the framerate at 60 or 72 Hz solves this issue.
Temporary solution[citation needed]
  1. Hold down both the right and the left mouse button.
  2. Press the quicksave button and keep both mouse buttons pressed during the whole saving process.
  3. Once the saving process is completed, release both mouse buttons. The character should now be able to move again.
Use VSync[citation needed]
Enable VSync in the graphics options or the launcher and set the refresh rate to 60 Hz.

Low performance[edit]

Disable frame buffer effects[citation needed]
  1. Disable frame buffer effects in the settings.
Low Frame Rate[16]
The Steam version has by default the wrong syntax in the swkotor2.ini for enabling this OpenGL method for storing vertex data in video memory.
  1. Go to the installation folder.
  2. Locate file swkotor2.ini
  3. Edit and change DisableVertexBufferObjects=1 under '[Graphics Options]' to Disable Vertex Buffer Objects=1

Retail installation for Windows 7[edit]

All steps should be done with an administrator account.
Working on Windows 7 x64 bit.
Retail installation instructions[17]
  1. Install the DirectX End-User Runtimes.
  2. Insert the game disc, and ignore any auto play screens.
  3. Open the Start menu and click on 'Computer'. Right click on the disc drive that has the game disc and select 'Explore'.
  4. Right click on setup.exe and select 'Properties'. Click on 'Compatibility' and select the options 'Run this program in compatibility mode for Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2)' and 'Run as Administrator'.
  5. Run setup.exe and install the game as normal. The path where the game is normally installed is C:Program Files (x86)LucasArtsSWKotOR2
  6. Apply the retail patches. Once the patches are downloaded, right click on the files, select 'Properties', and follow the same compatibility settings as was done on setup.exe.
  7. Explore the hard drive and find the folder where you installed the game. Right click on the folder, select 'Properties', un-check 'Read-Only', then click 'Apply'.
  8. Right click on every .exe file in the installation folders and set the compatibility modes to the same as in step 4.
  9. Right click on the kotor2.exe and select 'Create shortcut'. Move the shortcuts to your desktop.
  10. This shortcut needs to be set to 'Run as Administrator'. To change the icon to the shortcut, click on 'Properties' and then 'Change icon'. A new box will open. Find the installation folder and select the game .exe. To prevent the command window from popping up briefly while launching, under the shortcut properties change the 'Run' mode to 'Minimized'.
  11. TSL Windows Vista Fix needs to be downloaded.
  12. Extract TSL Windows Vista Fix and place the mss32.dll file in the installation folder, overwriting the file of the same name.

Stretched UI on widescreen resolutions[edit]

Star Wars Knights Of The Old Republic 2 Download

After applying a widescreen resolution, the HUD elements will be stretched.

Subscribe to Widescreen UI (stretch fix).


16:9 only.
  1. Download the updated Widescreen UI Fix by Achilles or Improved Widescreen Experience.
  2. Extract content to a folder other than the Override folder (e.g. Desktop).
  3. Select EITHER 1920x1080 for 16:9 OR 1680x1050 for 16:10 (but not both).
  4. Copy the contents of the selected folder to Override.

Dialogue options will not display on vertical resolutions of 1366x768 or below[edit]

Increase resolution to 1366x785[19]
This causes some of the screen to be cut off at the top.
  1. Using the widescreen resolution method, set the resolution to 1366x785.
  2. Check swkotor.ini has the desired resolution (under the [Display Options] and [Graphics Options] headers):

The game crashes on Intel HD Graphics (Linux, Wine)[edit]

The issue is, that the game uses a very old OpenGL version, which is often not compatible with modern drivers. These steps also fix various graphical bugs.[citation needed]
  1. Install Iris Mesa Driver. It's also available from Oibaf ppa or download the extracted driver from here.
  2. Run MESA_LOADER_DRIVER_OVERRIDE=iris glxinfo to check if driver works correctly.
  3. Make a script in the game directory with following parameters:
MESA_EXTENSION_MAX_YEAR variable is required to fix graphical issues during playing. Disabling shadows can resolve some graphical issues too.

Super Annoying

Look I love this game and can play it nonstop. However recently after the restored content came through at varying points in any type of game run-through even with multiple save files the game will lock into a frozen screen. The last two times Ive played I got through all the content and when i went to Dantooine to see the counsel when i left the ship the screen would just be black, never load anything. Most recently I was playing through DS and on Nar Shaddah Atton called everyone to the ship and after he mutters the words Its a trap the game never loaded or progressed dialouge. Its frustrating to be any number of hours into a storyline only to have it crap the bed and never load. 3 Stars for Nostalgia, ASPYR should definitely look into debugging their restored content, and putting out a patch. Lets see how the Uninstall-Redownload works.

Awesome Campaign

This game is 10 times better then KOTOR1!!!!! The screen is bigger, characters are epic, and you have everything you need. The campaign is up to you! Other then different games where your mission and dialogue are decided, you talk who you want to, go where you want to, and learn staggering Force powers that leave you foes begging for mercy! And fighting is smoother and more advanced then KOTOR 1. Hand-to-hand combat even more techniques and you can have two sets of weapons available. You can only use one weapon set at a time, but you can switch to your other weapons in the middle of a fight.
My Mac needed updates and tweaking so it was compatible, but it was so worth it.
May the Force be with you, always.

This game is older than I am and it is awesome

the only bug I can find is occasionally the camera will continuously spin in one direction, but it can be fixed by simply pausing and unpausing. other than that, the only con I can find is that sometimes (but not often) I don't know where to go. other than that, it's all pros. The story is good, gameplay is fun, and I really like the retina display support.
Over all, 5/5.
