I specifically went out and upped my RAM from 6GB to 12GB just so I can use this while still streaming video/listening to music/etc on a second monitor and playing TOR.

Thank you VERY much for an excellent tool. 5 stars.

I would have to update it to make the tool "authorized" button point to this thread instead of the old one.

another question, LocalApp (266mb) will improve overall FPS or it's just accessed when you change settings/change instance?

thanks
Answer is in the very first post :
What to check for which usage?
What to choose depending on my total RAM size?

i saw but what i'm trying to ask is, for example:
Quote:
Add DiskCacheArena : the game cache file
This improves loadtimes, overall fps or both? if it increases FPS too like the FX files, which of the two is better? i can't fit both on my current RAM and i only care about FPS increase, not loadtimes (that's the whole point of my question)
thanks again

So I tried this and it has improved my fps a lot BUT now my shadows are all messed up. looks as if they are set to low when I have it on high.

*edit

Sorry they don't look low, they are just pixelated high setting shadows instead of being smooth and they seem to be off center from where my character shadow should be.

**edit again

It would seem that turning my shadows off in game and then back on fixed everything.

Works great and is running smooth at 60fps up from 15-30. A lot more stable too havn't noticed any dips.

I don't know, I suggest you give it a try and tell us.

Thanks for the report. I hope it made your computer more worth its price

Quick question though about the virtual drive, when I'm not playing Starwars is that ram free for use in other games or do I have to do something to allow that?

So I'm guessing this won't work on Windows XP?

You'd have to remove it after you are finished or reboot to restore your ram. The removal button is easy to use, one click and everything is back to normal and it will remember your settings for next time.
