Here's my solution. Buy an ATI card open catalyst control center and turn mipmap all the way up. Also you can easily force the AA. My 4800 series card is running far better than I expected.

Urgh. I am happy to hear they are looking in to it, I am even happy to wait and see what they produce in 1.2 when it is eventually on the live servers, but this is a joke. No need for them to rub salt in to the wound by continuing to depict the game in this completely untrue manner.

The picture of the two Jedi and the trooper in that article made me and I'll be disappointed if we're never able to play with that level of detail now that it's been advertised as such.

This won't fix my problem with armor detalisation, which i believe I've paid already.

I'm running AA 16x on my 42" HDTV at 110 FPS and the textures still look like ****. Metal still doesn't reflect light the way it should. "CHROME" armor doesnt look like chrome, but rather dull steel. Reflective visors look like black & green plastic.

AA doesn't make textures better, it just makes diagonal lines smoother.

Horribly disappointing. This was the number one thing I was looking forward to.

Fixed mine. Armor detail sucks without it on and is much better with it on. Dunno why but it is.

I did too. SWTOR was suppose to be the next big smash with the best or at least many of the best tools and gameplay ideas that rocked from other MMOs. I bought a 800 dollar computer ($1000+ if I had not kept my old graphics card, however I ran out of money) because I felt the investment would be returned. Boy am I the biggest sucker currently living on this planet.

I only read the quote from SR, so I may have missed something, but it seems to me they could simply make a flag in one of their ini files that enables hi-res 24/7, but there is no way to change it from the game. That way only people that specifically know what they are trying to do can turn it on.
