Star Wars: KotOR v1.01 Patch Notes

BioWare’s Dave McGruther stopped by the official Star Wars: KotOR forums to post the notes for the upcoming v1.01 patch. A full rip to follow:


Star Wars(R): Knights of the Old Republic(TM) v1.01

Here are the changes in this update:
– Added two new “swkotor.ini” sound options,
[Sound Options]
Environment Effects Nonstreaming=1
Environment Effects Streaming=1
The Environment Effects Streaming=0 option was added to fix a problem with sound pauses while playing the game with an Intel i845 or i850 chipset motherboard and a 100 MHz Front Side Bus.

– removed the awareness penalty when running

– Made a fix to the “Disable Vertex Buffer Objects” option in “swkotor.ini”.
[Graphics Options]
Disable Vertex Buffer Objects=1
If you are having some odd, random graphics issues you may be able to resolve them by adding an entry to your “swkotor.ini” file:

– Made a fix to the Enable Hardware Mouse option when it is disabled. This fixes a crash with certain ATI Radeon 9600 video cards.

– Made a fix to a display issue with Small Fonts.

– Made a fix to a gamma issue after movies finish playing.

– Removed the display of Force Points on portrait tooltips for non-Jedi characters.

– Fixed bug where some objects in the game would give a sticky mouse indicator like they had an inventory when they did not.

– Fixed an issue where if you changed appearance while Force Speed was active your movement rate would return to normal.

– Fixed an issue with droid animation when the item they were using ran out or their target died.

– The turret mini-game should no longer have the blur visual effect if you enter it with that visual effect turned on.

– The Security option no longer displays for doors which a key is required.

– Fixed a rare bug where the game could get stuck if an autopause was triggered at the exact same time as an area transition.

– Fixed a rare crash that could happen when a Dark Jedi dies at the exact same time as he deflected a blaster bolt.

– Fixed a rare crash on startup under Windows 98.

– Fixed a few memory leaks.
