so exactly why cant you put a option to use high res textures in game for high end pcs?
If it lags you the hell out obviously you would reduce the settings if your got any brains.
Usually its shadows that kill mmo performance.

I'll bet any of you people for all my Gucci gear that Bioware will release a patch fixing the 'holo' bug so there will be less comparison shots, before they actually fix the blurry textures of this game.

Some of us just have higher expectations than others.

Far as you can't have cutting edge graphics in MMOs? Sorry but even WoW is using DX11 these days. Lets not even talk about the graphical quality of AOC comparatively.

To be frank Second Life makes TOR look antiquated and thats rather hilarious.
So putting DX11 automatically makes the game looks better ?
As I said, and no offesne to you because you don't rage like others : please do your homework before using technical details to pound an argument.

I also don't recall anyone mentioning performance issues with the high res but I only started checking the beta forum as a nov 11 weekender.
I still have my beta installation.
Size: 50,2 GB (53 963 913 219 bytes)
Size on disk: 39,1 GB (42 086 252 544 bytes)

If anyone knows any way to check if higres textures are in there somewhere please let me know.

I am at a loss for words. Failure after failure after failure.

I can see where this game is headed and it's not a pretty sight. BW should consider getting a new management and review their decision making process. Oh boy, EA sure is good at killing once great game studios.

This whole affair, among many other things that are currently broken in TOR, is beyond ridiculous.

It was stated in the beta forums which are now gone that they were removing high-res textures in order to cut down the amount of data the players needed to download for the final weekends of test. After a number of player voiced their concerns over the suddenly lower textures in the game they stated that the final game will look much better and not to worry.
THIS is what I paid for. My graphics dont look like that even in cutscenes, all setting maxxed.

I WANT MY MONEY BACK

I don't mean offense on this, but don't we still have the hi-res textures in our game files now, which is why the game can display them during cut scenes and such?
