Perhaps Bioware is just catering to the people who seem to care more about claiming they can run a game at max settings than what the game actually looks like at the settings they run it at?

This is what Bioware gets for using such a crappy engine.  WAR uses the same modified HERO engine and it ran like crap too, even at lower settings.  If you're too lazy or cheap to make or buy a better engine, then you deserve all the crap that comes your way.

If there's one thing you can say about EA/BW, it's definitely that they're cheap. Hundreds of millions to develop the game? That's it!? Come on, guys, get a real budget!

I find this whole topic quite interesting.  I didn't know that there was an issue with graphics so its kind of surprising.  I run the game maxed out on my gaming laptop and I am getting high FPS constantly, even in higher pop zones.  I don't have an issue with the graphics the way it is currently but, hey, I will take more if I can :)

However if they are advertising the game with graphics that you can't physically have ingame then that is pretty poor marketing, they need to address or at least have a statement on the screenshot stating this is not what you see in the game.

In response to the posts discussing the multiple instances and keeping them zoned to limited number of players. I have to agree about performance and graphics.  If they don't bring in high textures do we really need so many zones?  I feel like I live in a parallel universe. 

AoC has over the top graphics and they are managing pretty good FPS now and the pop since going free has definitely jumped. (I know they have zones but I think now everyone is just one one)

So just because you do not have a High End rig and do not care about graphics, it's automatically fine how Bioware handled it?

I find that highly arrogant and egocentric! Totally disregarding and disrespecting a lot of people out there that DO HAVE High End rigs (some even build a new one specially for this game) and DO CARE about HighRes graphics!

That's why GOOD games have plenty of graphic settings to adjust the graphics to match what YOUR system can handle!

WE WANT the CHOICE ourselves to run the game with HighRes textures and DECIDE ourselves if our system can handle it or not!

Is that too much to ask?  I think not! Especially since the HighRes textures are already there!

   yeah i agree with Jero here in most games you have plenty of options to tweak graphics setting and the first thing i noticed when i played SWTOR the first time very limited options .

so yeah we deserve to choose .

A lot of the game is cinematic.  When you are forced to look at crappy cinematics your eyes will hurt.

At least some of us couldn't care less.

 The cinematics have always used the high res textures.

Is there anything else you would like to get wrong while claiming to speak for all humanity?

You are bored with your own life, aren't you ?


On topic, I got a high end rig, and those HD textures are not missing to me. And believe me when I say this, as I'm playing on a 40" in 1080p, 50cm away from my screen. Yes it's freaking huge, friends always say that, but I'm partly a graphist by job, so this is why.


This is also why I can say that the game is interesting enough in other domains for me not to become psychotic because there's a small blurry detail on my warrior gloves.


edit : I'm not saying the game wouldn't look better with HD texs, just saying that some people should really stop feeling so self-entitled to the point of freaking out like this for such a detail.

EAbioware is all about the $$$ they really do not care about the customers after they made their boxsales thus their statements came after the rushrelease for xmas.


Highrez ran perfectly fine for me in beta and actually less crappy than the newer client with it removed.


They are saving money by not switching back and are happy to take the crap because their lawyers can smackdown anyone trying anything.


I just do not get why people are defending them over this? do you owe them your lives? are they holding your grandmother hostage?  even if you love the game can you not see something wrong in their actions?

It is explicitely stated that when you are hearing quest materials it drops high res textures.  The only cinematics that get high res are the opening cinematics.

Why would anyone care in that regard? The high rez textures are used for the "cutscenes".

 Here's where we need to explain. As many of you have noted, your character in the game world is rendered using lower resolution textures than inside of cinematic conversation scenes. This was a deliberate decision by the development team. To understand why this was done, I have to briefly talk about MMOs and their engines.
 

Explicit enough for you?

I really dont understand why they cant just add an "Ultra" Textures option or something, with a tooltip saying that it will severely impact game performance if your computer is not powerful enough.

Then those that have got high end PCs can have nice graphics, and those that dont can not use the ultra setting.

Obviously a proper fix that will allow better textures AND improve performance, such as they are suggesting in patch 1.2 is preferred, but why not just add the button until they get all the bugs ironed out?

The way Bioware handled this is not smart even if they're being honest.  This was never listed among the known issues at launch, yet we're supposed to believe that this was always a known bug?  Funny how it didn't become an acknowledged known issue until several weeks after people started asking about it and wouldn't go away.  We were talking about this within the first hour of the game going live in Early Access.  The change from Medium to High didn't appear to change the graphics and had no effect on FPS.  After several of us confirmed we were seeing the same thing, it was pretty obvious there was no difference between the settings, and something was bugged.


Bioware, though, tried to make it out that the setting was never intended to be there even though we had all used it in beta, and it was never said in beta that it wasn't supposed to be there.  It just sounds a lot more plausible that they hoped this would just go away or slide until they could fix it, and instead it bit them in the butt.  This doesn't even include the FPS issues that show up for some people on any graphical setting in the Fleet and Warzones.  Are they related and perhaps why High was removed as it would make the game completely unplayable in those zones for some?  Who knows.


Finally, with the fairly widespread recognition of this shortly after launch, how did not one single critical reviewer notice or mention this in their reviews?  Did they not try different settings?  Did they not want to rock the boat?  Too caught up in the hype?  Again, who knows, but it's disappointing that Bioware has been less than forthright about this, and now, a month later, and after breathless reviews, industry sites are finally acknowledging this.

 They don't have high res textures for all equipment yet.

Some of the high res texture have severe clipping and other graphical errors.

Some of them caused problems so severe no computer could display them properly under normal game conditions.

Basically they have to reoptimize them and iron the bugs out. It won't be a short process either.

I'm sorry but the community on this game is worse then Wow's I don't think there is one nice post on the forums within the first 5 pages its nothing but people complaining and whining about everything and anything....


So many people in the TOR community that are wearing tin-foil hats it's not even funny they all think Bioware is out to get em....


It's a terrible cesspool and it actually saddens me.....

This was Bioware's kneejerk reaction to a ton of people reporting crashes.

Well in that case they look like crap.  I don't know how many people I run into whose lips do not move because their faces are too big.  Well, guess that means there's no fix for the main problem I have with the game.
