Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (Kotor for short), is a excellent game developed by BioWare, for Lucas Arts. Telling a Star Wars story of the Republic in it’s olden days, the game is a well developed RPG strategy game, and there are few faults with it’s game play. However the game was developed for the computer systems of the year 2003, a far cry from the gaming computers and game requirements of today. Due to this, the game has a remarkable amount of glitches that don’t exactly disrupt game play and mostly disrupt story progression. This guide contains a list of common bugs and information on how to resolve them.
Note However that the best protection against these glitches is to simply get used to the art of saving. The auto-save system is simply a fall-back system, since it saves on the loading on a map, and shouldn’t be relied on. Computer storage sizes have evolved since the game has developed, so you should have plenty of space for your saves. Simply save often, save when you start a map, save whenever you kill somebody, save before and after boss fights, save when you get an important item, save save save. You do not want to have done something which required a large amount of time and then watch your progress vanish into cyberspace, as your game comes crashing down because of a bug. Get into the habit of saving, and don’t use the same save file. As a side benefit, if you decide to play the game while making a different decision, or play the game again from a certain part, you will still have the save file.
