During beta there were a few tweaks that BW said to help with fps problems which seemed to work, does anyone remember them? I've got 2.4ghz i3, HD 5650 and 4bg ram which i know isnt a power house but should run swtor at more that the current 20-30 fps. Any ideas?

Hello elfthorn,

This thread contains some good suggestions for possible solutions to Radeon FPS issues:

Perhaps you would like to give this a try.
Thank you.

Here are my tips for ATI cards:

- Run SWTOR as admin
- disable themes and Aero

- Shadows to low or off
- Shader quality set to LOW
- Bloom off
- Environment sliders set to MIDDLE
- AA off
- Everything else can be medium/high

My GPU is a 6970M 1gb (iMac i5 3.2) and holds 60 fps most of the time at 2560x1600. Dips in very high pop areas or areas with fog (like Corrisant flight paths)
