Get a cheap Intel Card? I dunno.

I was quite surprised that this at least made the game playable for me.
No matter how low I set the graphics, no matter what I did with the nameplates as long as I was trying to use the other card (Nvidia/current drivers) it just wouldn't be playable whenever I had a target selected, it's like as soon as it went to render the text for that nameplate, BAM it would get to stuttering.

I switched to the Intel card and it's back to being playable. But I get no where near the quality of graphics that I originally had with the Nvidia pre 1.4.

Seems everyone is trying everything to fix a problem that didn't used to be there. Well everyone except those that created it. Seems like they should go back to pre 1.4 graphics in the live game and retest this stuff on PTS (what a concept huh) until everyone is happy with it.

What workarounds? I get a pretty solid 30-40 FPS, but when I try to move, the screen kind of "sticks" every few seconds as I'm running. Is there a work around for this issue?

Thanks for the post - I'm glad we could address the issues. Not every issue has been addressed by this patch, and we do still have some frequently reported problems that we're working on. Make sure to check out this thread to check on those: http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=540196.

Some players in the thread have mentioned performance issues (which we are still working on as a high priority). You may need to lower your game settings, particularly by disabling shadows, until we are able to resolve the problem.

Thanks to everyone who reported issues they encountered, and for your patience as we continue to fix the others!

It's been 2 weeks with an annoying barley playable product that we pay for and I have not seen one peep out of EA on the matter other than another "it's our computer's fault" default reply. That is BS!

I can be a lot more understanding and patience with honesty but to publicly insist that everyone's computers went faulty over night is...is...oh lord this is not good EA.
This times one million. Game on completely full settings ran flawlessly. 1.4 trashed it so bad I can barely just quest.

This is a BS reply. We've been telling you this with examples, photos, and after trying literally every possible fix that has been though of and you still have nothing but "disable shadows." This is all after folks reported this plenty on the PTS.

My patience has pretty much run out. Why not just remove what you have changed that is causing our performance issues until you all have a fix for it?

Because we all know coding for gaming is so easy a caveman can do it.

The information is great for them on finding out where the root of the problem is. Surprisingly enough, complex systems sometimes require complex solutions. That may be why none of your proposed fixes are as easy to implement as you suspect. And if there is a workaround (ie. lowering your settings for the time being) so you can play the game but that's a dealbreaker, then I don't know if Bioware can do any thing to help you. Not sure if any developer can.

In short. Patience, young padawan.

Obviously the issue is horrible for those affected by it but the amount of users having this issue doesn't seem to warrant a full roll back. This kind of issue is a risk for any PC gamer knowing the number of possible computer setups that can exist not all of them can be accounted for. The fact they have said this is top priority why it doesn't fix the issue immediately they are working as quickly as possible.
