I cannot get Unleashed to work at all.

Every time I set it up and click "Save, Apply and Close" it throws out the following error messages..

"The device is not ready"
"Setting RamDriveLetter=[R] is taken already. Please select another drive letter"
"Please choose valid settings so they can be saved
."

Drive letter R is not taken, in fact it doesn't matter what drive letter I choose to set in the box, it always throws up the "Drive letter R" error message.

Imdisk is installed, loads of RAM is available. System is Win 7 64bit. Suggestions as to what to try to get it working would be appreciated !

Having issues with unleashed post 2.7
I have 32gb ram, and have everything set to copy to the ram drive.
Unleashed creates me a 22.5Gb ram drive.
Its like unleashed has not updated the size of some files, as after loading the entire game onto a ram drive there is only 972mb free, so swtor wont run due to not having enough free space for diskcachearena

Do i need to reboot for it to recalculate the file sizes or something?

Any suggestions?


Edit: as a workaround..
Open unleashed, once you have the launcher open, close it.
Now open the imdisk control panel, note the size of the ram disk created,.
Now delete it, and manually add a new ramdisk using the same letter, and add 1gb to the size.
Format as ntfs, and restart unleashed.

EDIT - After speaking to the developer, a permanent solution.

> Having issues with unleashed post 2.7 (Tandy, above)

• Go to the directory containing SwtorUnleashed.exe
• Delete the SwtorUnleashed.xml file
• Launch the SwtorUnleashed.exe
• Click Settings and reselect which options you prefer
• Run SWTOR Unleashed. It will now calculate the correct size of RAMDisk for the options you have selected and always run normally.

I have tested this, and it works. Remember to follow these steps again if future patches increase the size of the texture files.

Added the permanent solution to the issues past-patch 2.7.
See previous post.

NOTE: The current build, tips, and the contact details for the developer (Audric Thevenet) can be found on the SWTOR Unleashed homepage. (link)

Could you try the following and let us know how it goes?
Using SWTOR Unleashed 3.4.2.1134 (you are using this version?)
1. Boot your machine
2. Launch SwtorUnleashed.exe
3. Click 'SWTOR UNLEASHED' once, and once only.

Now wait! Does it create the RAMDisk? (Check in Computer)

If it does, quit SwtorUnleashed and restart it. Open settings and make your settings, then Save Close and Apply. Again, wait - it can take a while to create a RAMDisk and populate it with gigs of files, and I sometimes get a similar error message if I do other things, but it does actually create it. Check in Computer and see if the R: drive has been created.

If it has, then SWTRO Unleashed should work fine.

How long are you supposed to wait after opening settings?

I've been sitting here for 20 minutes and it's still frozen and will not let me adjust any of the settings and none of the buttons work.
This is not the signature you're looking for...

Less than a minute for me.

Make sure you have the latest from http://www.metasharp.net/index.php/SWTOR_Unleashed . Currently, it is version 3.4.2.

I have/had the same problem. Though I noticed it only freezes if you click on something outside of the Unleashed box. Once you do the whole thing freezes and I've had to kill the process to shut it down.

After you hit the "Unleashed Mode," SWTOR Unleashed will appear to freeze. This is normal. It is creating the RAM drive. You should be able to open My Computer and see the RAM drive after a few seconds. If you continually refresh My Computer, you should be able to see it fill up with the necessary files.
