Myself along with seferal other people on the forums reported that the latest geforce update from sept 13 cause problems with swtor such as major fps drops and crazy graphical glitches. i was told by bw they were aware of the issue and to roll back to previous drivers. did 1.4 correct this so i can now get the latest driver?

Nope. No matter what driver you have you are going to get stuttering and graphical glitches.

Has any general fix been announced or has there been an announcement that BW is working on the problem?

I've never had a performance/stuttering issue in this game since launch, save for WZs at one point, but this has been smooth for months.

Downloaded 1.4. Now I can't play the game because the stuttering is so bad. I was leveling an alt Guardian, and can't walk around Balmorra. What happened, and can we simply revert to pre-1.4 until this is figured out? I think TOR is a great game, but I simply can't understand how something as bad as 1.4's performance issues can be approved for launch.

The problem can't be ALL our machines! Especially when many have reported never having had a problem running the game before, including all previous major and minor patches.

Depending on the graphics card the uninstall can differ:

NVidia recommend completing this through Control Panel/add/remove programs.
1) Go into your Control Panel
2) Double-click the Add/Remove Programs icon
3) Select the NVIDIA Windows Display Drivers from the list of programs.
4) Click Change/Remove or Add/Remove button.
5) Confirm with Windows that you wish to continue with the uninstall

Nvidia link:http://www.nvidia.com/object/IO_13955.html

ATI on the other hand recommend removing drivers via their own catalyst:
1) Click on Start
2) Open the Control Panel
3) Select Programs and Features
4) Select ATI Catalyst Install Manager
5) Click on Change

AMD link:http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles...csDrivers.aspx

Instructions on performing a clean boot: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135

When installing an Nvidia driver please choose the advanced install and tick the box for "perform a clean installation".
When installing AMD drivers, just perform the installation as normal after the clean boot.

Ive done everything theyve asked us all to do in order to fix the horrible frame rate, did the drivers they told us to downgrade, ive done the deletions they told us to do. IVe done everything and so has everyone else. Why cant they ackknowledge that this horrible frame rate issue is caused by their game not by our pcs. They try saying we have other programs running which we dont. IVe never had an issue withstwor untill this patch. I know its not my pc or internet cus I am running Battlefield 3 online on very high settings and its running better then on an xbox360...
Weve all tried your suggestions bioware, no fix for the hundreds of players.. So now what. stop responding with the same thing please cus we all did what you said over and over. no fixes still We know its not us cus wever never had issues. Cant you all just acknowledge its your patch 1.4 thats the problem. I can run BF3 on very high so dont say its my drivers or gpu

it isn't the new nvidia driver that's the problem cos I had the issue with the old and now with the new drivers .......... just another reason to drop this junk game as soon as possible.

If they don't even accept they have caused a problem they aren't going to look at fixing it................

You keep respsonding with the same responses about uninstalling drivers and deleting that stuff, weve even toned down all of our graphics in game to very low, still getting really bad frame rates. taxis on corusant still go invisble, space combat is horrible now, stuff dissapearing and so much more

totally agree but it's just about their level of service ie non-existent; like the quality of the game itself. Shame really as there was so much promise which they managed to screw up even better than totally.
