My computer has always handled the game fine in highest settings.


Now - it's been awhile since it started doing this, really, the loading screens take really long and I randomly start lagging in Warzones or Operations. Any clues? I'm told it's Memory Leaks.. anything to do about that?

In the first instance delete the DiskCacheArena file and do a disk defrag to see if that helps.

I use Win 7 64bit and have played just fine for over 12 hours ( mind i try not to play that long )

Should be here C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\BioWare\Star Wars-The Old Republic\swtor and is about 1Gb in size. It gets re-created when you launch again , hence defrag before launching.

I forgot to answer, it helped but only ever so slightly during combat.

It's not conventional lag, though. It can run anything on the highest settings. Civ 5 and Mass Effect 3 do have some semi-long starting screens (and Civ 5 loading screens) but SW:TOR just.. jesus, it takes forever. It's the only game that has problems.


And I play full window.


Edit: I can't even play WZs, I tried again after months- I got over 20k health, I can't even /SEE/ 5 attacks before the battle ends. It's just INCREDIBLE lag.

Please, anybody.. I've had this problems for months. I can't PVP or do much group content that includes combat, I pay for this game monthly I hate to have this happen.

If you mean by clean boot reset my entire computer and have everything removed- forget it. I should not have to do that.



And it's not a ping issue, it's purely loading screens and warzones.
