If you want to correct the high resolution texture issue that a lot of people are complaining about with SWTOR, then there is a little trick you can do to improve your graphic performance in the game. For some people, it might be too much trouble just to correct some shiny floors but for those who are comfortable with tweaking their settings, it’s a fairly simple process.

*Keep in mind that adjusting your settings is done at your own risk. *

You can change the settings for your SWTOR profile GPU profile. The idea is to is to force your 'LOD Bias' to -3.

Nvidia Inspector is freeware that will help NVIDIA users. ATI Tray Tools is freeware that will help if you have an ATI GPU.

Once you have these tools installed, go to the 3D settings and choose “additional” (should be a tab for it) and then set the LOD BIAS to -3 (negative 3). Save under the Profiles tool and link it to SWTOR under your Game Profiles. Then once you save it all and reopen the game, you should notice a difference.

What does it do? Basically, this little trick with fix the reflective (shiny) nature of some of the game textures. This can help you increase your framerates and get smoother play, especially in certain areas.

Do you know any tricks to help improve performance? Share them with us in the comments!
