In the post about if KOTOR will run on the emac, it is mentioned briefly.

I dont want to have to re-install 10.3.7 just for KOTOR

A guy in that topic about the emac mentioned "Opengl Override tool", and I am wondering where I can get that from.  My computer handled KOTOR beautifully in 10.3.7, but on Dantooine I can't even leave the Jedi Academy without being warped to random places.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks
Derek

Okay, to get it you just have to install the Mac OS X dev tools. You can download them or get them off your install discs. It'll be in /Developer/Applications/Graphics Tools.

Open it up, make a profile for KOTOR and set it to use the generic OpenGL driver. You have to specify that each time you load up the tool and you have to launch KOTOR from it. Now keep in mind the catches. The game will be VERY crash prone for some area transitions, namely back to the ship and into the temple there on Dantoone. You'll have to save and reload without the overrides in order to make the transition. However you also should only need to do that on Dantoone. The rest of the game was pretty playable without it for me. Hope that helps!

What's the exact name of the app that lets you set these overrides? I'm running Tiger, and I don't see something called "OpenGL Override Tool," or anything else likely.
I left my heart in Port Montyhaul.

Did you install the dev tools and are looking in that Applications folder?

/Developer/Applications/Graphics Tools/OpenGL Profiler
