Depends on how much RAM you have.
Server : Darth Nihilus (FR) Characters : Exca, Universe Guild : Escadron Nemesis
Dev de : SWTOR Unleashed (FR) - augmente la fluidité de SWTOR
Dev of : SWTOR Unleashed (US) - raises SWTOR fluidity

Glad you found the issue, meanwhile, do i have to wait that minute every time or can i use the regular launcher once i have the ramdisk created?

Thanks!

Yes, try the regular launcher.

Re-point ISBoxer to his .exe and see if you can get it to work. It's currently pointed to the swtor.exe most likely.

That didn't work.
Following the manual method though with the All-In-One batch file did the trick though. Once the batch is set up correctly and run to mount the ramdrive, then just launch ISBoxer as normal.

I got some odd performance though. Computer specs are in my sig.
I am currently on Taris and noticed that the frame rates nearly halved coming from Coruscant. I was dipping down to the 25s with the average of around 44FPS. There was significant hitching as well while runnign around, I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to test the ramdrive.

I set a 6GB ramdrive to be safe. I have 16Gb so that still left me with around 4GB free after SWToR had loaded. I included the cache plus the following:
set AssetFile01=swtor_main_art_fx_1
set AssetFile02=swtor_main_art_dynamic_cape_1
set AssetFile03=swtor_main_art_dynamic_chest_1
set AssetFile04=swtor_main_art_dynamic_chest_tight_1
set AssetFile05=swtor_main_art_dynamic_hand_1
set AssetFile06=swtor_main_art_dynamic_head_1
set AssetFile07=swtor_main_art_dynamic_lower_1
set AssetFile08=swtor_main_art_dynamic_mags_1
set AssetFile09=swtor_main_art_weapon_1
set AssetFile10=swtor_main_area_taris_1
set AssetFile11=swtor_en-us_area_taris_1

I included the Taris files hoping it would speed up the Taris world.

What I found though is that my FPS was hovering around 30FPS with dips down to 17FPS. But the game felt much smoother than before. Very odd. Maybe the hitching was so bad that even a lower FPS is better than before.

I'll have a play around with the settings and maybe take out the Taris files and see if it gets better.

EDIT: sig doesn't seem to be showing up so here are comp specs:
Intel 3930k, Gigabyte G1.Assassin.2, 16GB RAM @ 2133MHZ, OCZ Vertex 4 240GB SSD, 2 x Gigabyte GTX 670 2GB SLi, 3 x Dell U2412 monitors in portrait surround for 3880x1920 bezel adjusted resolution, 2 x 500GB HD Raid 0 for storage

Does Unleashed need 64 bit to work?
My old 32' won't do?

So, someone with only 4 gigs of ram shouldn't even bother trying this eh?

I'm on windows 8 64 bit.

Nice program, but what's the deal with the UI? Its a bit unclear but it often refuses to click anything, neither can I reposition the window sometimes its like its stuck on a UI element until I unfocus it lol.

Needs a bit of work, for the rest good job.
Cyrix 166MHz - 128MB EDOram - Tseng Labs WD4000 1MB VRAM + 3DFx Voodoo 2 12MB 2x SLI - Quantum Bigfoot 6GB - Adlib Gold 8-bit soundcard with real OPL3 Synthesis.
