KOTOR 2: Bugs

So I haven't hit the widely publicized "omgweneedtogetitoutforchristmasjust finishupthatlastlevelandcrapitoutNOW!" planet yet (i.e. the last planet), but I have bumped into a couple of other minor bugs along the way so far.

Nothing game breaking.

Poor T3-M4. More then half the time he wants to interject into a conversation I just see a micro second flash of the camera changing and it immediately goes to whomever ends up responding to him.

This isn't so bad since T3 speaks in pure droid, anywho... So it's not like I'm missing any text. He's just getting jipped of his screen time.

The other thing is the swoop racing. I can't place a time, at all. Don't get me wrong, it's not for lack of actually GETTING a placed time. It just never notices.

If I get a time that's in 4th place, it lists me fine. If I get a time in third or above it tells me that I didn't beat any of the current times. Even when I placed 2 tenths of a second out of first place.

Since I haven't found anything that REQUIRES placing in a swoop race, it's not a big deal. I just have stopped doing it. Kind of a shame though, I was enjoying the swoop racing more this time around.

EDIT: Found another fun bug. If I'm using jedi speed of any type the visual effect doesn't always cut off when the timer runs out. This isn't so bad as I can just kick in jedi speed again then wait for it to run out. BUT, if i'm in the middle of running with jedi speed, and I hit a cutscene, the cutscene is played back using the jedi speed "effect" (i.e. looks like something trying to play a 320x200 mpeg movie at 1024x768). Not so hot. Had to watch the whole replay of my jedi trial that way. Poo.

major bug:

I was on the refugee planet (kars something... the name escapes me right now) anyway, I'm at the part where there is a solo fight in the bar with the twi'liks... well i lost because that character sucks... and when I wanted to start from the auto save I lost all my map discovery and npc conversations. It was very fustrating, I had to start from my last save, lost atleast 90 minutes worth of play. :(

Bug:
Either a major bug or im' just stupid but on telos when i am supposed to board the ebon hawk and go to dantooine it says i need my party first, but the two i came with are standing at the door where we came in and i can't talk to kreia and when i talk to atton there are just 2 options both have [cheat node} right before it and the second doesn't work, the first just takes me to my conversation with atius

Here's a Big Bug for you: You get the Handmaiden to become a Jedi, Kreia says "Betrayal" and you disappear into the academy on Telos with no one there, nothing you can do (I've tried everything), you're alone and can't add or change your party, you can't leave as the game won't allow you on the Ebon Hawk. It is the equivalent of freezing except you can walk around.

This really bites.

The other bugs are a pain but are livable. The one in the Queen's palace where you couldn't move half an inch to grab some of the goodies of the people you just killed sucked quite a bit too.

when on nar shadaa the refuge planet, after updating the game to fix various bugs, one of them being the swoop racing forfieting bug, I can no longer swoop race at all with the patch.

As soon as the green light goesand i click to go, the swoop bike allivates as if its stuck in a constant jump.. there for you cannot hit the booster things and never win a race.. something is wrong here.

Same problem with the Telos academy. Can get the two [cheat node] options, and there is no help on the KOTOR 2 website. I agree the guy above, KOTOR 1 was sooo much better

on telos in teh academy dont hand over you weapons right away and you avoid the whole problem there...

first time i played was unpatched and i never remember ever having a single problem (it seems impossible i know) but this time i patched it and all my movies seem to jump around and im pretty sure im missing things. when i was doing the sparing on telos my two party members froze up and i couldnt do anything even after i went on the ebon hawk and left i couldnt talk to kreia and get my force stuff. and the swoop racer floating up...what the hell how did this not happen the first time unpatched>?

On Dantooine, it is really hard to move. I have already installed the new patch if you think that is the problem. This only happens in the plains. Please email me at mike1989122@aim.com to tell me if I should just restart my game or if there is a way to fix it.

In kotor 2, after going to all the other worlds i came to dantooine and killed that last jedi guy. Then kreia turned on me and, u no, i was telepotered back to my ship where that annon guy or whatever his name is, found him injured, talked and when he said "i'd thorght you'd say that" and i was meant to go to Telos, I "appeared" in that place where kreia used to pray. "Appeared" is like that because i didn't actually appear, everything kinda went black except the ouse, but all the menues still worked. I could here the music and ship noises, and when i used free veiw and moved the mouse, then went to the map, i'ed turned around! wtf? Then i saved and reloaded, and i could see myself and the ship, but noone but anon was on it and that whole me running through the ship and finding him injured cutseen happened again. The prosess then repeated. Ive restarted and everything. If any1 has any tips, email me at Larry_the_Leprechaun@msn.com.

Yeah I have the same bug...On Telos... My selected party is stuck at the door with no conversation for the old lady and cheat node (1 continue conversation with the old lady which there is none) or (2 You get to talk to the grumpy Jedi lady). My other friend is stuck lying on the ground in his cell and the robot is stuck behind the big prurple shield... Sigh***

Heres some tips to handle some of these bugs: When on dantooine, or any other place where the cpu lags like hell or goes pitch black, move your mouse to the top right hand corner and press until the menu comes up. Go to graphics, then advanced, then change setting from moderate to high, then back to moderate (or the setting you were using) and press ok. The monitor flashes on and off and the screen become clear again. When trying to get off telos, just go to party selection menu and deselect the other two(Do this for the meeting with the aliens on citadel station as well). when picking things up in the queens palace, switch to another character to do it.

there are a lot of bugs indeed. nto all of them are fixed by official patch. i reccomend u to install TSLRP unofficial patches which fix various bugs. also check out achiles's dialog patch.

if no one has answered the cheat node bug...you simply go back to auto-save or a save before going into the temple on telos and simply keep the dialouge going and dont give up your weapons until you have no choice, this fixes it.

Here's a good one... After leaving the academy and after the the handmaiden walks in i can't talk to Kreia or Bao Dur. They just turn to me and look, Kreia doesn't even stand up, she just turns and Bao Dur just keeps working while looking in my direction... Any suggestions?...

The most sucky is that no matter what you do...it matters jack.in kotor1 i felt more part of a story and that what i did mattered.also quite liked to recieve more tips from the party members.

in 2 it is just stupid.
1) you get exiled
2) you learn to use the force
3) every jedi master teaches you something
4) only to cast you out AGAIN

so what is the freaking point in teaching the PC something then??!?!
i was radioactive blue and still i get casted out.damn Jedi Order...

quite funny that a jedi master says that you get stronger by killing people btw...guess he never heard of EXPIERENCE POINTS before ^^

you guys think you've got problems? my npc's keep getting evil while I'm good, even T3, with whom I don't do any missions had a 93 light side score and now he's 0 (complete darkside)!
I've tried fixing it with the save game editor since I'm playing jedi and not sith:s but it kind of sucks:s

did you use cheats Lextrux?when i used cheats i had the same problem.NPC's go the darkside since you used cheats i think.With the savegame editor see if there is a "1" at CHEATS USED..make it a zero and see what happens...or make it 1..apply..commit changes..and then change it back to zero.Maybe that fixes it.But it is not a bug when you used cheats...

hope it helps ya -.O

Guys I have a really serious bug. I've met with all the jedi masters from the 4 planets, but when I go to Dantooine again to finally meet them, I want to get down from the Ebon Hawk and the game turns "black" (I only have the mouse arrow to move around) after the character group selection screen appears. I've tried to update the game to the version 1.0a but the patch crashes when I get to the "Manual.pdf" file and it cannot finnish updating. The error window that appears says this "Old file not found. However, a file of the same name was found. No update done since file contents do not match". Can anyone help me? I really want to continue playing this game, and you all now that it's really bad when some bug or error don't let you continue with a relic like this game :(.

Escaped Criminals Quest Workaround:

If like me you had completed Telos without finding the criminals in the restoration zone (but had seen them earlier in the Czerka offices and spoken to Grenn about going to find them) and were up to your next planet, you can still solve this quest with the help of KSE. KSE is a save game editor for Kotor 1 and 2, if you don't have it download it here: http://www.starwarsknights.com/tools.php

Open it up and choose the save you want to edit. Go to "Globals -> Numerics" then scroll down to find "202TEL_Bounty_Killers". The value next to it will most likely be 5, simply change it to 6, hit apply then commit changes. Now you should have the option of speaking to Lt. Grenn about it and finishing the quest.

Have fun!

Lol, my bug is a very big bug. I did lots of quests in Nar Shadda, then i boarded ebon hawk. When i came out i forgot that i should talk to visas that attacked me, so i can get the force sight ability, but then suddenly atton speaked for like 2 seconds and then the loading screen for ebon hawk came. When i was sone i finally came out of ebon hawk, i chose Kreia and Atton for my party. i came out of ebon hawk, then suddenly i saw a second atton near the ship. there were two attons, i could talk to both of them and even play pazaak with the bugged one. I cannot get the quest that tells me to go to jek jek tarr because atton is bugged he only stands there. What shall i do? plz email the answer to me to this eemail: awe_94@hotmail.com

I have the weirdest bug, I'm on Korriban playing on an xbox 360, I put the disc in and I had to keep putting it in and out multiple times because it kept freezing on the lucas art screen. Now when I put it in and was finally able to load my game, my characters armor constantly changes color and he is unable to talk to any party members. If I select them and click dialog he makes a weird spastic motion and that's it.. The game also keeps freezing on load screens, I tried using other save slots but the same thing keeps happening. Any suggestions?
