A simple little trick using msaa + LOD switch to get a little more out of the graphics in swtor. Im 100% sure nvidia has a way to do this too so if someone with a nvidia card wants to post a how-to here or even make a video (il link it to mine) on how to do it that would be awesome.

Considering this has almost no effect on framerate I cant see why anyone would not do this. For a 1fps loss there is really no reason not to change lod, better quality is better quality despite how u get it. Im also trying to mess with a fxaa injector (bf3's in particular) which might yield some interesting results. Until then, enjoy

Radeonpro Link : http://www.radeonpro.info/en-US/

For the ATI guys/gals I recommend using catalyst 11.9 with the latest 11.9 cap. 11.10/11.11/11.12/and 12.1 beta gave me reduced performance. BF3 still runs awesome on 11.9 the only game u will lose out on is rage. atm for swtor I deff recommend 11.9 with 11.9 cap4 and radeon pro (for tweaking and crossfire stuff)

nvidia its easy to do open nvidia inspector and go to your star wars the old republic profile
Texture Filtering Negative LOD Bias- make sure this say allow
right above that is an option that says Texture Filtering LOD bias(DX9)- here you can change from 3 to -3 just like in the video
there's no mipmap slider for nvidia but you can change the texture filtering to high quality here as well..

Thank you for the feedback, both positive and negative. It helps me improve my videos and make better content overall so THX.

This also allows you to turn down the anistropic filtering with little difference in picture, since its only using the highest resolution textures for the most part.
