Increasing FPS/Overall gameplay

#1 Posted by CaptainTryHard (256 posts) -

I bought SWTOR recently but soon discovered it runs very poorly on my Macbook (late 2008 edition).

Processor- 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

Memory- 8 GB 1067 Mhz DDR3, (although it shows up as 2 MB on my Vista side)

Chipset Model- NVIDIA GeForce 9400Processor- 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

Any ideas on how to make it run better? I have all graphics on low, I plan on turning off bloom, and shadows.

@CaptainTryHard: turning off Bloom and Shadows will increase performance, but it won't be the significant bump you're hoping for. It's shitty, but you'll have to do what I plan on doing in a couple months - buy a new rig.

Turn those shadows off and fast, those alone account for like half the fps and with bloom it should be a lot better already.

Turn down resolution is always a good move, turn off fly text. You can change the view distance by editing the client file.
