I REALLY enjoyed this! Well Done ! Give them a like on Youtube after watch and do not forget to sub on creator's youtube channel : http://www.youtube.com/user/VF... !
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
BioWare Interested in Mac Version of Star Wars: The Old Republic
The chances are pretty good we’ll eventually see a Mac version of the game.
Star Wars: The Old Republic launched at the tail end of December 2011 and is being enjoyed by millions of PC gamers. But what about all the Mac owners left out in the cold? Well, as of right now there are no definitive plans, but BioWare has not turned a complete cold shoulder to OS X owners.
During a recent interview in midtown Manhattan (via Massively), BioWare’s studio heads Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk mentioned that they are fully aware of the outcry for a Mac version of Star Wars: The Old Republic. They also understand the audience desiring such a product is quite large, which would, in turn, result in big money. Therefore, through simple logic, a Mac version of Star Wars: The Old Republic is in the cards, but it’s not something BioWare is ready to fully commit to just yet.
"We know there's a big Mac audience of BioWare fans … we know that's an important and large audience. And we want to serve that audience," said Muzyka. However, Zeschuk followed up that with a simple reply, “I’d say ‘not yet.’”
As of right now, impatient Mac owners can run The Old Republic on their machines using a program such as Parallels or Boot Camp; however, that’s not an optimal setup. So let’s hope somewhere down the road us Mac owners can travel to a galaxy far, far away. On that note, I’ll leave you with one final quote of hope from BioWare’s Zeschuk:
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.
There was a survey in swtor open beta testing with many questions about Guilds and Guild System.From this Survey we can find what features bioware's Devs think to implement in Swtor ! The whole page was that .
Below is a list of potential Guild features that could be include in Star Wars: The Old Republic. For each, please indicate how important each feature is to your overall satisfaction with Guilds.
- Customized guild events and guild news
- Guild Vendor/Rewards: Sells items related to guild achievements
- Guild Bank
- Guild Ranks and permissions
- Roster Views: Guild Activity Total (lvl, class, name, guild activity/ranking)
- Member Notes
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 and LucasArts are pleased to announce that Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ will launch on December 20, 2011 in North America and in the European Launch Territories! The announcement was first made by BioWare co-founders Dr. Ray Muzyka and Dr. Greg Zeschuk during their keynote address at the 2011 Eurogamer Expo in London, England. Speaking to a packed room of press and fans alike, Dr. Muzyka acknowledged the weight of the moment and the patience of the fans.
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...
Today we received our actual copy of the SWTOR game! Everyone who pre-ordered the game will get it in their hands in the next couple of days.
As you know, the game comes in two versions: normal edition and collector's edition. We managed to get our hands on both of them, and here's what you'll expect to find inside the boxes:
Nothing special about this game case. It is a normal DVD case with the disks and no manual at all. I was expecting something better from Bioware/EA...
This first image on the left is a normal plastic double-DVD case. .The sticker says: "Official Game Access does not begin until Dec. 20 2011"
The contents of the case: Three (3) DVDs, one keyboard layout card and of course the access code for the game (not in the picture).
Here is a small video from the Beta Test
We got wiped doing a Flashpoint!!! We died ...but still was fun!!!
