I've run this program since it was first released. Honestly, if you can't uninstall it, you REALLY shouldn't have installed it to begin with. I swear by this program and have NEVER had any issue with it.

There are requirements, there are setting you need to select...but it's ALL explained and simple.
Thanks for your support

Haven't fully tested, but that seems to have fixed it, thanks.

This sounds like a great product. I haven't tested it myself because I use ISBoxer in order to run 2 clients on one machine (One actively gaming; one for crew skilling/GTN activities).

Is it safe to believe that this utility would not work with my current configuration? (Given that I have to launch my pair of clients from ISBoxer, preventing my ability to launch from your application)

Do you have any idea how I could make this work?

If not, I'm still happy to bump your thread for great Justice!

Not everyone is super savvy with computers. Just because you are a fan boy doesnt mean they shouldnt have included directions for uninstalling it.

To uninstall it, start it, do "remove and quit" to just disable any trace of it. Then delete the folder and uninstall imdisk. It's that simple.
When I did that, I was getting an error message when trying to launch the game and was unable to log into the game, so I had to reinstall and do it the "hard way".

I dont like the wait times: waiting for Unleashed to load, waiting to log in, waiting to swap characters, waiting to load a planet or flash point. The increased load times are not worth the extra five frames a second when I was already running over 60 fps on average. I'm sure its great for others and the benefits outweigh the drawbacks for them, but its just not for me.

That is because you forgot to click on "remove and quit" before trying to uninstall it. I'm 99.99% sure about it since this does the same thing than the "manual remove" you did, but in one easy click.

This first waiting time is normal, since you need to copy files from your hard drive to RAM (those same files you will have to do so when playing the game). It's better to wait a few seconds when launching the game launcher than in the middle of the action creating huge FPS drops.
If you experienced anything slower than usual when using unleashed, it's because you misconfigured it, it's that plain, simple and frustrating I can understand it. If you ever want to have a good experience with it you can post me the informations I asked you.

Also when talking about those 5 more FPS you got... meaning you upped from 60 to 65 FPS.... please understand it's not the main SWTOR Unleashed goal. Rather it will make you go from : 60FPS with drops to 10 or 15FPS .... to 65FPS with drops to 45FPS which is a lot more fluid. Also you will be able if it's not already the case to raise your graphical options (because textures etc ... will load like 100 times faster).

Fantastic!! Fleet FPS no longer drops to being like a slide show for me, now just need to find which assets are for the war zones as I'm limited to what I can select.

This looks really promising. I have a question or two as this is the first time I'm seeing this.

Can I install "SWTOR Unleashed" in my second hdd, rather than my main C drive where my programs and SWTOR is installed? If it's ok, will it effect performance?

And is this the equivalent to partitioning a disk? In other words am I partitioning 7gb for this game? This is the first time I'm hearing about this term "ramdisk".

I'm really excited about this, I have been having problems with putting my in game graphic settings for grass and trees. When ever I am in a planet with allot of grass and trees, I have to lower my graphic settings or turn off shadowing. I prefer the shadow settings. I'm hoping SWTOR-U can help alleviate this problem without me having to buy a 3gb video card.
