SWTOR: Terrible FPS


Dec 21, 2011
Here is my system specs:

GTX 460
8gigs DDR2 RAM
Quad Core AMD Phemon 2.5ghz

I am getting extremely annoyed with the frame rate issues in this game. I am able to run BF3 on ultra max, Skyrim, and every other game that has came out in the last 2 months with out any issues. What am i doing wrong? I know that there are no drivers yet for this game and bioware has yet to really fix any memory leak issue but this is getting stupid :(

wait wtf why can you run ultra max bf3 and my specs are much better

but anyways

i play high with about 60fps only when i get to crowded areas do my frames drop drastically down to the 15 range maybe its not coded properly yet?

the game is total crap.

i did the beta's closed and open, wouldnt play on 1 screen didnt get fps over 20 but with 3 screens and res of 5760x1200 i was hitting 160 on ultra. now you figure that one out. bough the game and its unplayable its a total joke and wont be spending money on it again.

total waste of money and it only sold cos of the name nothing more, same as WOW.

guild wars if free to play and with better graphics, and you dont get idiots running around you when your outside in the world either ******* your missions up

it is not a total crap game. It needs a crap ton of work and is very frustrating to play right now.
