SWTOR FPS after Patch 1.4.3
« on: Nov 02, 2012, 07:34 AM »
Has anyone else seen a noticeable drop in FPS since Tuesdays patch 1.4.3?

I've noticed specifically on my laptop, where nothing else has changed hardware/software, since the last patch I've gone from getting around 20-25fps with low-ish settings, to literally 3-5fps with everything turned as far down as possible or off.

Yeah for some reason the game doesn't feel like an FPS game anymore :\
I might have to go back and play Battlefield 3.

Needless to say... Healing KP is a struggle when my display looks like stop-animation. Hehe.

The weird thing is...  I even tried knocking my resolution way down below native... All the way to 800x600 with all graphics options Off/Low/Very Low, and it was still the same result as running native resolution with middle of the road eye candy. SWTOR was grabbing about 1.5gb of physical ram, and I have 6gb in my laptop with a 64bit OS ad I was at about 60% CPU usage.. So I had plenty of resources available...

Gonna see if there's any driver updates for my gfx card tonight to see if that helps... Grrrrr

So it turns out, I'm an idiot.

Since we were without power for a few days, I had put my laptop in Super Duper Ultra Low Performance Battery Saving Mode to use as a DVD player for my kids....

Never turned that off. Of course TOR was running like crap, because I was running it on the equivalent of a Commodore 64....

Such an idiot.
