    Hey all.

    So I'm reading through a monumental LP about KotoR II and hot dang, I want to play it again. I have the original version with 4 CD's.

    The thing is.. I can't get the first game to work! I've tried the .dll-fix mentioned on the interwebs, and I'm running it in all compatibility modes I can think of. It actually works, for about 3 minutes. Then the image freezes and the game crashes. And that's it.

    My question is: Does the steam version actually work? Anyone have it and can confirm? Because if it does (maybe Valve have some magic wizardhobos that can make games work???) I'm totally spending the €8.99 on it.

    Thanks for looking!

    I played the original KOTOR via Steam in W764 bit if that helps any.

    I would try your code in steam and see if they allow access to the download;)

    I've never needed any compatibility fixes, both games worked for me straight off the bat. Vista x64, btw.
