Troubleshooting Courtesy of u/mintchan SWTOR unleashed is wonderful. speed up loading time and frame rate. But it hasn't been updated since, July 2014. It seems break completely since 3.0 But there is a way to make it work. you may need about 12GB of memory. (mine is 16GB) Go to the installed folder, find the XML document named 'SwtorUnleashed', right click and choose edit Go to the line with <RamDriveSize>6063</RamDriveSize> Change to <RamDriveSize>7063</RamDriveSize> Save it. and run swtor unleashed as usual.
- Direct X 9c (Helps with some FPS Problems)
Courtsey of u/dksprocket This was an official post in the german forums today: http://www.swtor.com/de/community/showthread.php?t=239280 Translation (thanks solembum): "if you dont have installed the latest version of directx 9.0c additionaly to your DirectX11 it could help to do so. Nothing will be deleted or overwritten dueing this process. Though it can help increase the FPS." Theory is that basic directx 9 stuff is being emulated by directx 10/11 if you are missing the dx9 files. Download links: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/confirmation.aspx?id=8109 http://www.chip.de/downloads/c1_downloads_hs_getfile_v1_16091344.html?t=1327944139&v=3600&s=4a35ba979b5d232b60d53334cf4eb65f (german mirror) (Will prompt for a directory to unpack into, just make a dir for it) Personally I can confirm vastly improved frame rate, especially in zerg pvp in Ilum where I went from 5-10 fps to 25 fps. Please post your results in the comments. Edit: Seem results vary between huge improvements to no improvement. Biggest diffrence seen in Fleet and in Ilum zerg PvP. People who get no improvements may already have the files on their system from other games.
Reducing Mouse Speed
- Close the game.
- In Windows Explorer, change the view to show hidden items.
- Open "C:\Users[YourUserNameHere]\AppData\Local\SWTOR\swtor\settings[username]_Account.ini"
- Then change the setting "Controls_CameraRotationSpeed = 0.6" (or whatever number it was) and replace the number with a lower one.
- Relaunch the game and test the speed. Do not touch the in-game mouse speed preferences again, or it will over-write the changes made to the .ini file.
If you have Windows 10 could you adjust the compatibility settings and disable the pointer precision? - Adjust Compatibility Settings Open the Star Wars The Old Republic folder, right-click on launcher.exe and select Properties.

Click Apply then Ok. If you have Windows 7, 8, 8.1 try to change the Windows Text Scaling. Right-click on the desktop, Display Settings and set the Change the size of text, apps etc to 100%.
