LucasArts OpenGL game not loading (SW: KoTOR) -> Fixed in SVN.

Description

The topic is discussed here in the forums:  http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?t=12279

Desc: I started the game through the launcher. The screen turns black. Nothing more to expect from the game.

I disabled videos and hardware cursor, VSync is off by default. Still the same result: black screen. When I enlarge the client window I can see that a windows error reporting window has come up, but it is barely recognizable due to the screen still being black where the game actually should be. After a reboot you can work with your guest again until then there is a big black rectangle on the screen. It seems that OpenGL is still in action or somewhat. Back to the game:

I tried several settings: least quality textures, software sound etc. Nothing makes the game work.

The game requires OpenGL 1.4

  • Summary changed from LucasArts OpenGL game not loading (SW: KoTOR) to LucasArts OpenGL game not loading (SW: KoTOR) -> Fixed in SVN.

Should be fixed in SVN. Please reopen if it'd still exist after 3.1.

For some reason it still doesn't work. I have attached a new log, but I worry that it is not really helpful. I would need some help to figure out the source of the problem - maybe it is not related to OpenGL anymore.
