I have a three years pc with these specs
cpu: amd athlon II 6000+<br /> ram: 4 gb kingston<br /> gpu: nvidia 9800 gtx
Until today i had horrible perfomance and unplayable situations in warzones even in very low settings !!!!! ( lost frames and not smooth game > spikes ) .
I log out and i started searching in the internets for a new setup ( cpu, ram, video card ) and i started with the cpu and i googled for amd fusion apu ( the new cpu with gpu inside the cpu from amd ) .
Google returned many results and a link for fusion utility for desktops .... this utility said that that it gives some perfomance in games ... i installed it and ....
WHAT A BLAST!!! FINALLY I CAN PLAY SMOOTH INSIDE THE WARZONES EVEN WITH SHADOWS AND BLOOM ENABLED ( MEDIUM SETTINGS ) and I HAVE 25 ~ 30 FPS INSIDE WARZONES !!!!
i installed this program and i made only two settings
a) Windows -> High perfomance | and activate
b) AMD -> Gaming | and activate
I run the program After the logging in to server . if you run it before something brakes and not shows you the list of servers
Our Testing Group has found a solution where the swtor client played nicely on a Mac without any problem at all !
Unfortunately the tester was only in the first public beta weekend and he didn't tested the new build where the graphics were in full without restrictions to give feedback first for the performance and second for compatibility of the client.
The Solution is : a) Parallels Desktop 7 and b) run the client under windows 7 environment.
Of course this solution needs a new Mac Build ,NOT any mac older than 3 or more years old !
His machine is not the latest iMac , but an Apple
iMac 27 (i5) 3.1GHz
Graphic Card: Ati 4850 512 mb ram.

I did the mistake to enable the security device that is shipped with collectors edition and the next day this device stopped working because cat climbed on the computer desk and dropped water on the security device .
i was not at my home when this happened and i found the security device not working . i tried to login in to the game and in website and unfortunately i couldn't , without type the security code that the device generates . later on the afternoon the device worked once and i logged in the website and then stopped.i am just loggin in swtor forums and i can not access again my account .
I am fan of STAR WARS lore and i never hide it (that's why i am the owner of this domain) but Swtor is the best mmo that i have ever played and i have played all the mmos from uo and after !!!
Two weekends in beta and i didn't stopped playing your game . Swtor is not just the KOTOR 3 in mmo version .... it is more !!! This game will brake all the standards in game industry and i am very happy that i trusted you and i choosed to buy the Collectors Edition and after two weekends i can say ... only these two weekend worth the 150 euros that i spend to buy it.
Today on our TeamSpeak Server we had a conversation about the Graphics's of Swtor and one of our teammates said us that the Graphics's are outdated and they are like a twenty years old game . I really surprised because i played the last beta weekend where the developers removed the cap on the graphics and we enjoyed the full version of the game .
The Urban myth that have created around the Graphics of Swtor started from the beta testers , because Bioware capped the Graphics at 50% of the maximum during the whole beta period. Beta testers knew this situation from the beginning of beta tests , like our member lord basil , soz mate ,but they never stopped whining about that.
I feel the responsibility to stop this Urban Myth right now about Swtor's poor or outdated Graphics and i will do it with some pictures that i took from the Last Beta Weekend .in many pictures of them you will see also the fps . my pc is 4 years old and i have a video card that costs right now 60 euro . i played the game in high settings on a 24" screen and in 1600x1200 game resolution !
enjoy with me again now some pictures that i took during the last beta weekend :
check the details from water and ground . they are amazing !!! Click on the image for full View
Bioware gave to the public the opportunity to hear and enjoy nine soundtracks from the game of Star Wars : The Old Republic . My favourite soundtrack is from the Coruscant, The Capital of Galactic Empire , maybe because i loved the town in game .
All the Nine excellent Theatrical Soundtracks are amazing and i included all in my YouTube Channel in a playlist under this link > http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLE960F9...
[ Swtor Related ] At Spike TV’s 2011 Scream Awards , iconic Star Wars villain Darth Vader won the Ultimate Villain award. But even someone as villainous as the Dark Lord of the Sith has fears — of his creator George Lucas and his tendency to digitally revise cinematic history. As the heavy-breathing black-cloaked Sith lord came out to accept his award, he expressed his worry about Lucas, saying he could “digitally enhanced you in the DVD release.”
That’s when Lucas come out on stage ( 03:05 minute of the video below ) , surprising Lord Vader, who quickly tells his creator how happy he is to see him. Lucas goes to give Vader the Scream Award, but psychs him out, holding the spiked object just out of the helmeted Vader’s view.
[ Swtor Gameplay ] There is nothing more annoying for a veteran or a skillful role-playing gamer from the players that have to cooperate and they have not understood the precise role of their played character.As a Person and after 35 years of playing video games and 10 years for MMoRPG i demand from my teammates to know well their role in the game and not diverge too much. This is the reason that I reposted and sticky this article [Tank Guide] from official swtor community forum.
In [Swtor Official Advanced Class url] there is a very nice application that full explains classes and advanced classes of each character. The problem is that the advanced class differentiates very much the gameplay to be followed by each player when he picks one of them.
After a certain level , each player will have to choose an advanced class for his class and I'm sure if he has not thought about this until that moment,where he may experience a disappointment when he realized that the role of the character does not match his playing style.
He will experience problems in team play( raids and inside his guild ) and may have to launch New Characters to meet his real needs of gameplay or even quit the game , since of course he has created a bad impression until that time to his teammates. To start from scratch with hook head is not the best thing for a player for his ingame rumor.
In official Facebook page of Star Wars : The Old Republic just finished a Q&A conversation where Damiel Erickson the Lead Writer of Swtor answered a lot of questions about the game and him.The most important news are a) there will be 15 flashpoints !!! and b) that he have read very much to all the ancient writers as a child, and of course much more informations that you can find in the quoted text below...
Source :The combined post of the three posts ( Post 1 , Post 2 , Post3 . ) from Facebook Page of Star Wars The Old Republic [if you have a facebook account do not forget to give a Like ) is below . Enjoy it ...
Steve Sherring: Hello, will alignement be reflected on your characters face and posture as in Kotor 1+2 or will it only be represented by gear? thanks
Daniel: Darkside changes will happen to your appearance as well.
Anthony Humes: Is there really 200 of gameplay per class? And does that really mean there is 1600 hours of gameplay?
so you decided to give tanking a try. Maybe you're torn between juggernaut or marauder. Maybe tanking is something you have always wanted to try but were afraid. Maybe you are sick of dpsing in previous games and want to try something fresh when SW:TOR is released. Whatever the reason, I hope you find this guide useful in starting your tanking career. This guide is meant more for new players just getting into the role of tank. Those with a lot of experience tanking, feel free to chime in with advice of your own. FYI please be kind as this is my first attempt ever at a guide.
Let me start by saying, that tanking isn't for everyone. I say that because:
- You may not find it enjoyable
- You need to be thick skinned and be able to take criticism and insults that will come when the group wipes(even if its not your fault)
- It's not pew pew dps
- You have a lot of responsibility.
- You need to have constant awareness of your surroundings / healers mana / the fight mechanics etc etc
Before certain months we read in internet that the most popular video game in the planet this moment wow that it loses 600 thousands subscribers each quarter (source: Google Search).The wow is certain that apart from the most popular game, is perhaps the most completed right now and certainly the number of million subscribers justified by the factor of the [complete game].The players can spend a pleasant time at any moment they decide to enter the game.
But the WoW is already in its seventh year and this "marriage" between the players and the game has become just a habit. Everything in life after some time it can not offer new experiences ,and WoW that it had to give,already gave it. You can see in the chart this drop of interest about Wow !
As long as it wore out wow, new games came to the fore ready to displace it. The two most important were Aoc and Aion. Unfortunately neither of the two did not succeed. The reasons in each case was different. Aoc in the reason was the unstable client, while in Aion was the indifference of Ncsoft against bots.
Pax was amazing.... -
The biggest announcement at the SWTOR panel was about open world PVP. There will be pvp lakes and areas on planets with specific objectives for each faction to try and complete. The best footage of this was on the planet Illum, where one faction had control of a large base (fort) while the opposing faction was trying to destroy it. There was footage of a turret up on the base wall where a player sat down in it and started blasting down at the attackers with big blue beams. They will be inviting ALOT more people to beta so keep checking your e-mails, beta weekends are coming this friday the 2nd.
They specifically addressed the problem of balance issues in open world PVP, where one side outnumbers the other. They said there will be small objectives to complete throughout the battlefield so even if your team is outnumbered, you have a chance to win against a larger force. The same pvp design team that worked on Warhammer Online, is helping to make the pvp and open world objectives in TOR. Thats great news, but I do hope they learned from WAR's mistakes.
They announced open world PVP on Illum, Tatooine, and 2 other planets. I think there will be lots of open world PVP objectives even on some planets which were not mentioned. They only showed the open world objectives on Illum at PAX.
