Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords crashing after character creation. How do you fix this?

After I create my character and the intro-movie is over, my game just crashes. I can run KOTOR fine, but I cannot run KOTOR2. I already tried everything in www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=194324, but it still doesn't work.

I have had similar issues and these are solutions I have found to them:

Many copies of SW:KotOR2:TSL shipped with a bad copy of Mss32.dll. There are 3rd party solutions available but none from the developers.

I had crashes routinely through both games, both during loading screens and right before movies. Disabling movies fixed this issue completely. I would suggest that you try to disable movies and see if that helps.

KotOR had issues with newer graphics cards. it is possible that KotOR2 has developed the same issue.
Under Graphics options try adding "Disable Vertex Buffer Objects=1".

You could also try running in windowed mode as KotOR2 crashed occasionally when I was running in full screen.

Are you certain that you are running SW:KotOR2? at the top of your post it says SW:KotOR. However the install path is correct for the KotOR2, but it can't hurt to make sure your executable is correct and you did not accidentally install the first game over the second.

In addition, from the install path it looks like you are running Windows 7 64 bit. This can have a rather large effect on solutions available and how effective they are.

Last but not least, Re-installing may fix your problem as some files may have been corrupted as they were copied off of the CD-Rom drive onto your HDD.

I might be able to give more support if you post why you are being given warnings.
