Yay! Glad this is finally getting some media coverage. I'm pretty confident that will lead to a detailed explanation of what's going on from the devs in short order.

Now, let's see how well the "today" part works.

Hello, i just read something interesting about the "low setting actually being high"

and i have had it happen on a previous install, AFTER changing nvidia drivers to the 290 beta release, and it wasnt until i rolled back to the latest stable release (285 i believe) and reinstalled the game from the retail disc that the problem was solved

also, i had problems with the game selecting a custom resolution for my monitor ( downzised from 1080p , from tnvidia control panel , 1824x1026 i believe it was) where the game would render in that resolution , but the UI would be cropped like it happens if i dont downscale the 1080 on windows, but just the ui after setting the resolution from the WINDOWS setting back and forth it stopped happening

for reference

win 7 64
xfx 9800gtx+ x 2
xfx nforce 750a mobo
4gb corsair stick
regular run of the mill seagate sata disks and miscellaneous peripherals , btooth and such

for monitor i use an LCD tv , panasonic 32 inch connected using a dvi-to-hdmi cable

also ive noticed that forcing enhance mode on the vcard , plus the game ini antialiasing force line , makes my gameplay a lot smoother (not gonna use the term fps as it is relative)

so far i have not had the "low setting actually being high" issue on THIS install, and i do believe that it has NOTHING to do with the actual game install but rather the windows drivers, and various other settings, also , removing all kinds of visual aero stuff from windows helped enormously

sorry for the long post but im just posting things i think relevant to the issue
thanx

PS: i will also add a screenshot , as to verify i do believe my antialiasing is working good, and textures look "high" ( or medium but im refering to the setting )

edit: heres a screenie , they look good but i noticed textures wont load high on characters

Their advertising campaign had it! It really is false advertising. You buy the game with that expectation.

It's monday now...time for some answers bioware!
Sadly, there's false advertising everywhere. Look at this crew skills video:

I can't even begin to count the number of misleading bits in there. :/

Yes, I believe all of those promo screenshots were taken on an internal build at Bioware that used high res graphics and anti-aliasing.
