Thanks =)
Honestly my experience is that it's not usefull since best performance gain is attained with only DiskArena+LocalApp+FX+Dynamic.
If you find a better combination of settings for certain usages with benchmarks showing a real improvement I think I'll consider it.

I have been warned for being offensive to Klarick. Seems he got warned too since his posts were deleted. I didn't see it at first and was about to rage againt the customer service. In the end I won't since I think it's best all those useless posts were deleted.

Thanks for your support everyone. Just to let you know what happened.

Not sure if this helps anyone, but through my own tweaking, i've set the nVidia settings AA etc. to off and used in-game to set anti-aliasing and texture quality. Specs : 3700K @ 4.2K Mhz, GTX690, 16GB RAM, 240GB OCZ Revodrive3. With SWTOR Unleashed, my settings are all at highest and it's really smooth.

One thing that helped, and I actually find useful now and avoids that juddering around highly-populated areas, is to turn off scale nameplates with distance. Since I do a lot of PvP, it actually means I easily see enemy nameplates popping out at me... some people may find it annoying though I believe this is juddering purely related to a burst of CPU usage when entering these areas, so can't blame the GPU in this instance. Perhaps i'm wrong, but maybe it will help somebody.

With my ram though I can put 9GB of "stuff" into Ramdisk, which has helped alot. Perhaps around 10fps gain in places where it drops down from 60 to 40 when turning a corner... GTN comes to mind.

Hello, forgive me for not reading 42 pages...

This will totally not benefit me since I "only" have 3 gb of ram right?

My god, so all those expensive stuff you have (and al lthose cost ridiculously alot) and just to get smooth play in fleet or WZ with high setting despite this game uses DX9 still...
No wonder this game is so poorly optmized still.

Also there is memory leak with last patches and 4GB memory is not enough, after you logging into many of your chars game crashes soon afterwards no matter if you have high or low settings. Solution more memory as this game is terrrible with optimization and fixing leaks.

You do know that there is a workaround for it?

After typing in:
bcdedit /set increaseuserva 3072
in the command prompt I've never had a single crash.

Only low fps etc...but no crashes at all. and that while actively playing 8 characters.

Some users also saw improvements with using a memory optimizer program such as "Clean Memory" or "Memclean".

First command promt is for 32bit windows users not my issue. I googled memclean. yeah that cleans few hundred and gives a bit more time until fills up again. I got new computer coming anyway, its just pain to play this game when its has memory leaks.

Choose another letter than T for your ram drive maybe?
