Why Most Of Star Wars: The Old Republic’s Hi-Res Graphics Disappeared at Launch

Kotaku: During the beta test for BioWare's Star Wars: The Old Republic players with high-end PCs enjoyed stunning high resolution graphics. Now that the game has launched those sexy textures have mostly disappeared. What gives?

The story is too old to be commented.

Runs fine on my laptop fully playable. I7,gt 555m.

Slow pc or you did somethin wrong!

A 555m Can Max out almost all games with the acception of SSAO, this game performs like crysis 2 or Battlefield 3 with 1/10 the graphics.

I also have a 555m in my lappy, it is perfectly playable, but i have seen indie games more optimized and graphically superior to this.

Well considering I run it at over 100fps maxed at 1080p on a single 6970.......

Again, that card chould be getting 100fps in a vast majority of games. Just because you have a top of the line gourmet doesnt mean it still has to deal with unoptimized games.

The way this looks you should be getting 100fps on eyefinity with 3rd party 3d.

I'll send out a search team.

The game doesn't run well when maxed out on everyones rigs? Better DOWNGRADE THE THE WHOLE GAME GRAPHICALLY

Or...heres another solution that takes advantage of the capabilities of the PC; hows about adding a way to like...change the graphical settings so that your computer can run the game better? Revolutionary! Man, thats such a grea- whats that jagged white thing sticking out of the water?

haha, totally agree with you man. They took the lazy way out instead of thinking it through. By now most people have updated their pcs from WOW, yet they still think like if it was 5 years ago.
