Nameplates Scaling with Distance Performance droping.

Pretty much as the title says. When nameplates "Scaling with Distance" is active, my game will become choppy/jittery and jump around 56-64 fps. With it off it is a smooth 60 fps however the default nameplate size is huge. I'm playing at 2560x1440 res and have made sure all my drivers are up to date.

If anyone knows a fix for this please let me know, or knows a way to scale down the nameplate size across the board that would work for me also.

I have a GeForce GTX 980, i5-6600 CPU @3.30GHZ

Lower shadow resolution
turn off vsynch
play in fullscreen window mode
Pre-rendered frames to 1 in the nvidia control panel in the swtor profile

one or some of these should help

I use to have a 970 and now a 1080 and have/had no problem playing with scaling on @2560x1440

Hi, Thank you for the changes. Making it fullscreen windowed seems to have fixed it.
The others were performance increases but didn't fix the nameplate jitter.
