How I fixed my FPS

Ok, so after fiddling around with things for 2-3 hours i managed to completely fix my FPS and now its runs smoothly. so i thought i would share and possibly improve a few others (sorry i dont have pictures maybe someone else can post them! )

STEP ONE: I went to this post and did everything i could. updated drivers, downloaded Directx11, etc.



Step 2: This is if you have an AMD graphics card with the Catalyst suite. (if not maybe someone can help you to something similar)

1) Open up CCC (ATI Catalyst Control Center)
2) Use basic and click next
3) Go to the quick settings tab and pick 3D quality
4) Press the Go button, and slide it as far Left (Towards Performance) as you need.
5) Press Finish and Exit

Step 3: Launch SWTOR. This is the final thing i did, which i had read on the forums, Reduce your Shadows to OFF and turn off vertical sync. All other settings can be set to HIGH

And this concludes my help on improving your FPS! I hope it works for you as it did for me and have fun playing SWTOR!!!!

Sincerely, Nephinox

How do you turn off shadows? My only options are high, medium and low.
