Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Discussion
i follow all the instructions in fiddling about with the .ini but for some reason everytime i try to save it after editing it it always comes up with this error message.
"Cannot create the C:\Program Files\SWKoToR\swkotor.ini file
make sure the path and file name are correct"
i dont know why it does this as i made sure the name is the same as it was before.
Ist a problem with Vista that has no cure and from what i know of they dont plan on fixing.
I have Vista, playing on a HP laptop (only thing I have) and have tried to activate cheats several times after beating the game. Each time the cheats don't work and hitting ` then any other key might open inventory or change camera angles, etc.
It seems that I can edit the file without any trouble, have not tried copying to another folder editing and copying back since it can be edited in place and saved without trouble, but have tried several times to reinstall the game and try activating the cheats again, but that has not worked, the trainers also do not seem to work saying they cannot find a given file. Any suggestions?
Oh lastly if this information helps, it shows I have version 2.0 (or 2.0xxx) of the game.
Second unrelated question, where do the saved games get saved? They are not in the saved games folder on my computer and I cannot seem to find them anywhere else in the game folders, yet when I have tried to reinstall the game they are deleted.
thank you all for any replies.
You will need to start over!
Running the game as administrator blocks ascess to your saved games.
Someone posted that you cannot use cheats while on Endor Spire but i have found that to be incorrect.
1st go to your Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic installation folder. (ect. programs files/lucas arts/kotor)
2nd find the file named "swkotor.ini" (it is listed as a configuaraton settings file)
3rd right-click the file and click "properties"; next click on the TAB at the top that says "security"; after that for special permissions click "Advanced" towards the bottom; now click on "Change Permissions" at the the bottom. This will bring up a entry list of users allowed to modify/edit this current file.
4th find your user entry name. (esc. John Doe) and verify that your current permissions are at Full Control. If not click on the user that has "Read and Exectute" rights only and click "Edit"; next check the box at the top of the permission list that says "Full Control" this will allow you to save settings, read/write to this file. Click OK and then keep clicking OK until all boxes are closed.
This may sound like allot but it only takes about 15 seconds to complete once you fingure it out. Edit away and enjoy. I hope this help!
