SWTOR Unleashed (game files in RAM to improve performance)

Hey,
when I quit the game in Unleashed mode, how do I start it again without ramdrive being rebuild from scratch?

I already had this question and response was that program is already doing that yet I observed that it is being recreated when I click "Unleashed". I must be doing something wrong then but cannot pinpoint it.

Thanks

PS. If anybody wonders - program works equally great with Win 8 Pro.

thanks !
I use ProcMon program for that. I set it up to monitor swtor.exe and set filter to exclude any events when game reaches to ramdisk. Then I enter the area I want to check, start event collection, after hour or so I check the report for reference to individual files and pick few top in two separate categories: number of references to file and amount of data from each file.
All what is left is to add these files to Unleashed list and do not forget to turn off collecting when you are not in area you want.

With 8GB of OCZ Fatality DDR2 RAM, is it worth trying a RAMdisk solution?
If you format that SSD with NTFS (not FAT) and move the game there, you shouldn't need anything else.

That's exactly what I'm saying. You don't understand.

I'm curious in trying this out. Will get an SSD today, Samsung 830. It's not the fastest, but since my mobo still has SATA2 it won't matter much anyway, but primarily chose this one because it has the best reliability reviews.

It will outperform 10x at least the best SDD, so yes.

If you reboot between it's normal. It won't rebuild it if you don't reboot in the mean time.

If you simply quit the game in Unleashed mode and wish to start it back up, simply use your normal swtor launcher, since the RAM disk is already created and symbolic links used, it will be fine.

in response to your linked post... there is no way to keep it stored in RAM during a reboot or a shutdown. You could set Unleashed to run at startup and there is info on the first page regarding this.

We don't have to do this on other games. We shouldn't need a "How To" list from other members to do it to this game. Other games I played run perfectly fine with no over heating. However I will use some of the advice listed. It's just sad we have take advice from fellow members rather then the game just run fine on it's own.

I already answered him. He should start unleashed with swtor unleashed, not the normal launcher. Never. Since it will verify everything is in place. If you do as you say you might encounter several problems depending on what you do between 2 game sessions.

True, but you have to face it : either you'll run the game slower until they make a change, or you try to make it faster in the mean time one way or the other. Your choice.
