Hey all
Not too sure where I was supposed to post this but I am having really bad FPS issues. They happen every 30 seconds. In between though it runs fine. It started after I got the update in august however I have now formatted my pc 5 times, updated rollbacked reinstalled disabled and then reanabled my graphics card to try and fix this. I am at a loss so i seek wise peeps in the force to help with my issue. Below is my dxdiag report:

Here is a thread that may help

your freeze every 30 seconds may be related to this thread though, but it depends on your system

I have tried both of these and no improvement. It doesn't matter if I have the settings on low or very high, I seem to have really bad FPS issues. This was not a problem when i first bought tor and was just using on board graphics. When my graphics card was installed my gameplay became smooth and reliable. Now its just choppy BS. I'm over it.

Do a full installation of DirectX 9 to see if this helps.
DirectX End-User Runtimes (June 2010) Sounds strange I know.

Try this. It needs to be that package above and not the web one. Run this, it will extract the files, then go to the folder you specified to extract the files in and run DXsetup.exe in that folder. Run the setup.

Why this? Read my blog about it.
I post about Star Wars on my blog. Check it out

Hey guys.
Well found my problem and it was really simple but apparently my CPU wasn't cooling down very well and after an application of thermal paste star wars runs perfectly again. Sometimes it helps to go back to the basics.
Thanks for everyones help on this matter.
