I have a issue with KOTOR II: The Sith Lords that is not unknown but I have been unable to fix. The game crashes after character customation and the opening cutscene. Once the cutscene ends I hear some noise from the level but a black screen and then the game crashes. The only mod I have installed it The Sith Lords Restoration Mod, v. 1.8.5. The title shows on the main menu as expected but I don't think this is a mod issue, but I could be wrong. I am running the GOG version of the game and the TSLRCM is a fresh install. My computer is an Acer laptop running Intel graphics off the CPU, a Intel Core i5-6200U. I am running Windows 10.
I have not tried disabling movies just yet as I would rather they be able to play but so far all the other fixes I have tried have not worked. I have tried running the game in compatibility mode for Windows 10 Service Pack 3 and editing the .ini file to allow windowed mode but that has not worked like it did for KOTOR I. Any advice would be appreciated as I am out of ideas and searching the internet did not come up with a definite answer.
I have heard that Disabling Visual Themes,desktop Composition and Display Scaling on High DPI setting(on the compatibility section of properties) will fix the Crashes that happen after the Cutscenes.(But I haven't tested that yet and I'm not completely sure it will work for you since it's a fix for Steam version)
