please bioware. please. ive even gone down to "very low", and it has only increased FPS by about 10-15%

this would be a great post for one of our new talkative dev friends to chime in.

why is it that i can run games like BF3, Far Cry 3, Skyrim, etc on maximum settings with ease, yet SWTOR struggles to put out a constant 60 FPS even on "Very Low"?

its really getting annoying

I would be interested to know what the issues are that make SWTOR seem to have more trouble with framerate than other games. It's what stymied large-scale PvP.

Turn off shadows, Bloom and AA. That helps a lot. Game doesn't even look any different when you do that. It's more of a PVP issue though obviously, it just can't handle any number of people on the screen at once, and turrets firing.

I am not an expert but I am told much of the issue here is the Hero Engine does not support large group settings well. Guess they should have known that before the y purchased it or designed their own (more time/money) like WOW did.

did you read the OP?

i did exactly that. the "very low" graphics setting turns everything off, and it barely increases FPS by 15% when you are in combat.
