I run this game on a mid range i5 second generation quad core and although i get very high fps, the game "stutters" and i have found a simple fix.
I read somewhere on these forum boards that the game is not optimised for multiple core usage. It appears to be correct.
- Load Game
- show processes from all users
- right click all swtor.exe, one at a time and set affinity to core 0 only on each
Now the game is running only on one core and for some reason it now never "stutters". At least for me, the performance gain (by which i mean with "stutters" not fps) is tremendous.
Anyhow, i have a question.
Each time i load Star Wars it defaults to using all 4 cores. Is there any way i can default it to using core 0 only without having to ctrl+alt+del each time i load it?
Thanks for any replies.
