First off, thank you Veilshatter for using your expertise to help everyone.
I'm hoping you can help me.
I have a Dell XPS M1730
Intel Core 2 Duo T7700 CPU
4GB of RAM
Dual Nvidia 8700M GT (256MB each)
128MB Ageia Physx PPU
Running Windows 7 64bit
I believe I meet the minimum system requirements and I have played the game at 30+ FPS on more than one Occasion. I played during testing and it was playable one day and not the next (fps dropped to 10fps or less). I of course have settings set at their lowest. I don't expect to play the game on high or even medium. This same thing happened during Beta testing. I went on vacation for a month. Got back January and played January 6th and 7th with no issues. I made no changes to my system but when I woke up to play on the 8th it was not playable. I have since tried everything I can think of to fix it and I have been unsuccessful.
I would appreciate any help you or anyone can offer.
Thanks so much and sorry for the rambling post.
something had to change. maybe your PSU is going out or you are overheating. did you download anything ? Did you make any changes in your SWTOR settings folder?
