Cut this guy some slack. He loves his job like the guy who loves making coastlines, especially fjords. I'm sure we'll find his signature somewhere on a leaf, or tree, or blade of grass.

These guys have produced some of the best looking environments that evoke Star Wars feel.

Keep up the good work.

The FPS issues are affecting more than just players with dual cards. They need to fix it for everyone with the problem. I'm beginning to fear how much more 1.5 will break.

I'm holding my fingers crossed this time. Last time 1.4 was released, it generated a new set of bugs that is still not fixed today.

This looks lovely. Thank you. I know there are lots of other challenges the game faces, but that does not take away from the fact that this looks like a very pretty effect and it will be nice to see in-world.

First shadows, now shaders, cleaning up various graphic artifacts....if you guys continue you will leave me nothing graphics wise to complain about

Great job. This is one I actually thought could not be accomplished with the engine, and you found a way. Brilliant.

Now....if you could only give us a detail distance slider......

So this is one of the guys to blame for the black circled eyes and general stuttering problems in/since 1.4. Something got changed in the way shader complexity works cause the only way to mitigate some of the probs. is to crank it up or all the way down in options.

... You know the game already looks amazing but ok. I care more about performance but that is just me.
and the Force beat generic Swords and Magic any day. 8/26/14 That was my old signature but after RotHC, I went back to superheroes and swords and magic. Now waiting on Dragon Age and a SWTOR story expac for my Bioware fix

I think this might just be one of the benefits as they try to get the engine more refined.

All I know is the last patch made it so my laptop can run the game at a higher graphics setting with a higher framerate.

And yet my i7 with or without crossfire can't run in mid quality. And it's just after 1.4, before that was great.
