alright, i know that this probably isn't the best place to ask for help about this, but heres my problem: i have the BOPC version of KOTOR, and it's been rather glitchy since i installed it. so, i downloaded patch from lucasarts, and installed it. but now, when i try and start the game, it says i have the wrong disk. i can't figure out how to uninstall the patch though. is there any way to fix this? Sad

Your best bet is to uninstall the game completely, making sure every file is taken off. The patch for Kotor II did this to my Kotor II, but uninstalling then reinstalling fix it.

What sort of glitches are there, by the way?

well, it's working again, although there goes two weeks of work saving taris Sad

the problems i was having is that 9/10 times, the game just wouldn't start, or would freeze, or crash, or just completely fail.

Ah, if you are quite desperate, you can save your games indefinitely, no matter how many times you uninstall and reinstall the game. My sisters and I would play the game from one computer to the next and just cart our saved games around on a memory stick. Like even though my computer played the game better, KOTOR didn't like my Intel card and I couldn't get into the lower levels. So once I got to this point, I would transfer my game to my dad's computer and play it over there. His computer ran the game slow, though. So as soon as possible, I would transfer back to my computer. Hmm...does that makes any sense?

You might already know how to save the games, but just thought I'd throw that out there. If you're curious, just ask! Smile

Oh, this also allowed us to all the play the game at the same time, yet keep our personal games separate from one another, so as to not clutter up the 'load' and 'save' game folders.

wish i'd of thought of that, but i figured it would give me a chance to keep my saves when i uninstalled it. it didn't. now i have to redo everything! i had every side-quest on taris done, and my char had so many points for lock picking and persuation too Crying or Very sad
