SLI for Star Wars The Old Republic SLI Profile Please !!
Hey all,

Can we please get an SLI profile for Star Wars The Old Republic in time for the release on 12/20/2011??? When they release the game with the ability to change the amount of AA we are going to need all the GPU power we can get.....

Thanks.

I would like one myself as im running older gtx 280 cards I know I setup global and it scaled a little bit. But an offical one would probbaly let me hit max settings.

There is already an SLI Profile for this Game in the 290.36 Beta Driver?

I was unaware that they had an SLI profile. However, I did not install the latest 290 beta drivers, but I did not see the profile update in the notes....

Its in the latest beta driver, if it works will just have to see as the last few games have had terrible sli support.

Yes the profile does exist in the beta drivers. The problem is that the profile is looking for "swtor.exe" but the program that launches swtor is called "launcher.exe". So to get it working you need to add launcher to the swtor profile using nvidia inspector, and also remove "wrc 2011" profile, since that profile is using "launcher.exe"

Hope that helps :)

How do you delete the WRC 2011 profile? Whenever i load it in Inspector and try to "delete current profile" the application hangs indefinitely.

I've done as above the inspector did not hang for me and now swtor launches with the correct sli profile. The game is smoother but there are times when it drops below 60fps. My sli usage on each card has never gone over about 50-55%. Is this normal for this game so far? I'm running 2x480s in 16/16 pci-e lanes with a core i7 overclocked to 4ghz so I should be able to get my gpus to 100% usage like in my other games.

bemaniac, I have almost the identical setup as you have and yes, having SWTOR dip below 60fps is "normal", for now. It's an infamous problem with the game engine and is supposedly going to be fixed in some future patch. The main problems with framerates occur whenever you're indoors.

It's silly because the game's graphics are so comparatively simple, like WoW.

I am also having issues getting SLI to run properly with Star Wars: The Old Republic.


When the game starts, GPU0 goes to around 45%
GPU1 goes to 99% and stays pegged, even on logon screen.

My framerate suffers as well. I get better framerates using a single card in non-sli than I do using the default or SLI profile mentioned in this thread. On a fluke after removing/reloading nvidia and lucidlogix drivers, I was able to get the game to start and the two GPUs had equal processor utilization. My framerate was 110+ and was perfect. I closed the game, restarted it, and now the issue persists again. No amount of removing/reloading is helping the issue.

I had SLI working properly at the beginning, and then had to replace my asus motherboard. After replacing it, windows had to reactivate and reinstall a bunch of drivers, and now I have had nothing but trouble. Of course, this all also occured the day after a patch so it could have been that as well. Either way, this issue will not go away for me. I have tried using reference drivers, beta drivers, latest WHQL release, older 270xx series drivers -- makes no difference.

It seems like perhaps an issue with SWTOR itself, but I can't figure out why it would work great at first and then now issues abound.

System is:
Core i5 2500k
16GB RAM DDR3-1600
120gb SSD Hard Drive
2x GTX 460 - SLI
Asus P8Z68V/gen3 motherboard

Hopefully this is helpful to everyone, :)

If you're having issues getting the SLI to show up or working you might wanna try this.

1) First you need to 1st download Nvidia Inspector (At the time of this post I was using NVIDIA Inspector 1.9.5.9)
2) Run Inspector and click on the edit button to the right of the Driver Versions display
3) At the top of the Profile Settings Window will be a Export button, Select Export all profiles (NVIDIA Text Only) and save the file.
4) Edit the Text file you just saved, search for "swtor"
5) you should see this line

Executable "swtor.exe"

change it to

Executable "swtor.exe" Launcher="Star Wars - The Old Republic/launcher.exe"

6) Save the file and then click the Import button in the Profile Settings Window and select Import all profiles (NVIDIA Text Only)
7) Check your SLI profile now, WRC 2011 should now be replaced with Star Wars: The Old Republic.
