Stephen Reid: Graphics department! I've just gotten word from the forums that the players have noticed the high-res texture setting does nothing!

Jim: Oh, don't worry, in the next patch the High texture setting is going to enable the Medium textures.

Stephen Reid: That doesn't make sense.

Jim: It does if we remove the Medium setting!

Stephen Reid: But I just promised them we'd resolve this issue.

Jim: No problem! Bill's in our closet/office in the back working on fixing the high-res textures in time for the first expansion.

Bill: We've already printed the box!

Introducing Star Wars: The Old Republic: Warfront!

*New super high-resolution TEXTURES!
*Exclusive access to non-sharded servers!
*Brand-new "Smooth-a-tron" technology introduces an alternate skill queue system that eliminates 'tactical contemplation periods' - known by many as 'ability delay'.
*Special slow-mo bullet time feature that you can engage during conversations with aliens, allowing you to fully read the subtitles for the first time ever!


Stephen Reid: This is brilliant, but the players will be disappointed.

Jim: Don't worry! Now that we're pretending the high-quality textures never existed during actual gameplay, the graphics department will have time to work on other features!

Bob: Breast physics will be in-game by September!

Everyone: LOL

Well they better get off their behinds and start seriously working on these issues. The next MMORPG is already around the corner and I'm sure it won't look so ugly or have this wierd "ability stuttering" that's more annoying than everything else.

I believe that's called "false advertising".

Details? What details? The game is muddy and chalky and looks like concept art.

Even still it's a beautiful game. Imagine how much more so if we had higher detail.

It's gonna be raining fire up in here if/when he replies. Keep in mind he did not promise anything, besides that he would talk to the team about it. He also said either probably today or try today i dont know exactly i dont care but he did not say "i will get back to you today with an answer". it was something like, "i will try to get back to you guys, possibly by the end of today."

i know i need to look at it exactly.

Just saying don't get your hopes up. But if they are coming back in i have to find my credit card.
