    powerbook and knights of the old republic
    I've read on other forums some problems playing this game,
    Being a star wars fan on films and games I'd like to get this game
    and play it on my powerbook. Does anyone have it and play it on their powerbook like mine? I know what the requirements to play it are, but would rather hear from powerbook owners. thanks

    I downloaded the demo, and it was SLOOOOOOW, see my specs, I had to dumb it down, waaay down to get it to run smooth. You will obviously be able to run it a little better, especially since you have higher than the crap 133Mhz bus that I have.

    You need some fast stuff to run that program.

    I know there is a demo of jedi academy which I did download and it ran fine at high settings, but I haven't found a demo of kotor. Can you give me the link if it was kotor? Then I could see if it hung up. I have a decent pc but would prefer it on my powerbook. thanks

    My mistake, I downloaded Jedi Academy Demo. I got mixed up.

    I can't comment on the mac version but I played it on the xbox and it is SWEET!!! I hate RPGs but loved this game. If you can find a way to play it, do it.

    My machine runs it with most (and I strictly mean most in the "more than half" sense) of the graphics options turned up. As a piece of advice, though, even if the machine can handle shadows, turn them off. They look absolutely atrocious in KOTOR and lack any dynamic nature whatsoever. They're just randomly stuck in with no attention paid to where light sources are.

    from what i've heard, that part of the game has always been buggy. I had kotor on my G5 and running through those fields was always risky.

    I do I do

    now this is a little tricky, first you have to find what version it is. Ok then when your in the game hold tilder and type Boolean_Adv_Test True

    ok then

    LvL_skip/(mission number)/(last 2 didgits of version)
    now you might not think it's working coz nothing should appear on screen untill youv'e typed it all in, and when you do it shoul show the mission complete screen with score = (12Ran#)*(The number of nerd points you've accumilated in your life)
