I really just do not understand how they can show trailers with great quality, and release a product that is not as advertised.
AH, marketing people, always reminds me what this guy had to say about them

There must be a reason why they downsample the textures outside of cinematics this mutch probably a memory leak or something like that in the engine.

Actualy your now just seeing what the rest of us have been already and you "think" its high rez because its looks better to you.
STO had a similar issue where GPU's with low vram would have there textures crippled unless you ran the game in XP mode.
If you happen to have a card with 1GB+ vRAM then this fix makes no differnce for you what so ever.
Now please dont think im ragging on you, because im not. I'm just trying to set the facts stright

You might have gotten an improvement, sure, and THINK the game is High Res now. But it's not because the game doesn't enable high res toon textures. It might look better than before but it's not as good as it should be.

Do the holocron trick and post pictures or nobody will believe you.]

EDIT: Damn venares you bean me to it heh

All right, I do not even know why I bothered to test those "fixes" you linked... While they do may help with the FPS issue -which this topic is not about- they definitely do not enable high ress textures of characters. Please see the first post of this topic if you want to understand what it is all about.

It is not clear to you.

I am really sorry if I have offend you. But, believe me, your character does not have high resolution textures.

I doubt anything significant info will come out today, on the flip side I don't think there's any reason to panic about the 'Medium is the new High' setting on the PTRs.

Call me naive, but I cannot for one second believe that Bioware will not address this issue, it's too obvious and too much time and effort (and cash) have been spent on this game to not fix glaring issues like this.

The explanation is likely that it's not just a matter of enabling the high res textures, but that there complications tied into it, possible memory leaks etc. Now I am no computer wiz, so that might be wrong, but common sense dictates that it's only a matter of time before this is fixed.
