A suggestion for better screenshots - increase your anti-aliasing!

The following comes directly from here:

Quote:
Since Bioware has removed the Anti-Aliasing option from the game, we have to enable anti-aliasing manually. There are two ways to do this. The first one is via an .ini file tweak, the second one by forcing it on a driver level.

1. Enable in-game FSAA it via .ini file tweak
This is arguably the best method. It will allow you to activate TOR's native Antialiasing mode, which should perform the best and possibly cause the least graphical glitches.

To do this, open %LOCALAPPDATA%\SWTOR\swtor\settings\client_setting s.ini (in Windows 7, the path may be different in older versions of Windows) and add the following line to the [Renderer] section:
Code:

AntiAliasingLevel = 4

Change the "4" in the above code sample to your desired FSAA level. Values of 2,4,8 and 16 are supported.

If you had forced FSAA for TOR via drivers before, please revert the changes you made to the driver profile for Star Wars: The Old Republic to it's defaults. Otherwise problems could occur.
I hope this tutorial helps in better screenshots!

Actually, that doesn't apply any more since BioWare added the anti-alias option back in 1.1 which was back in January... no need to do all that, just change the option in-game.

Though note if Anti-Aliasing is off but Bloom is on, holograms won't show up in the game. Or maybe it's AA on and Bloom off. I think the latter. I turn off Bloom for the performance increase, and forget that if I have AA on too, holograms don't show. But that doesn't say much for this topic. I like the screenies in here. The one inside the Rep Fleet for the +10 Datacron is the first I'd seen of the inside. Looks very different compared to the clean looking decks and museum.

I heard that affects AMD card users specifically. Folks using nVidia don't have that problem. I have all settings turned to maximum and everything on, no problems.

I just figured that out. Couldn't figure out why holograms disappeared. I have an Nvidia (9400GT) and it looks so much better with AA on high(no bloom) but it does run slower at certain times, and no holos. So I just need to decide I'm fine with no holos.

Eh, no holos isn't worth it. Many missions in the worlds(and all flashpoint missions before you go inside) use holograms. If your rig can handle it, just turn Bloom on too.

this game is amazing.


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

Their uniforms look pretty similar to me. Neither is one to talk.

That's why they call it a uniform.... Priss is making Risha wear it since she's part of her crew now.

I wonder what the weight limit is for this elevator?

Went on my first Ops last night, thanks to Mav, everyone under 50 or over 50 but not geared, this is another reason to get to 50 and get geared as it is the most fun I've had in groups yet. Even a normal Op is difficult and challeging, but it is so much fun and was a decent story. Heroics and flashpoints can be fun, but for my money ops are what after 50 is all about.

What Lynk wrote (X: -1398, Y: -2032)...First time I have seen it. The Sarlacc Pit is in the middle of a heroic 2+ area, so I never chanced it solo. However, figured my Shadow was up to it. I was worried over nothing the Heroic quest on the Republic side was easy, with stealth I was able to get in and complete the quest without killing anything (didn't leave without killing, but I could have).

I read that you can find the Star Map, anyone know where it is or is it in a story section (maybe Jedi Knight)?
