I figured out that the artifact glitches associated with Radeon cards is tied to the "Power Relay" world objects found throughout the game world.

They're the tower thing with the green laser going up through it. Whenever one of them is in the immediate vicinity, the crazy Pink Floyd laser show begins!

:edit: Here's some screenshots

Anyway to enable AA? I thought they were going to have that in release?
You will have to use the CP to enable AA.


I think I'm liking Empire much more. Surprisingly, at least on Ebon Hawk, the people playing on that side seem to be a much nicer group of people. I've been playing a Jedi most of the night and chat is nothing to but trolls and overall asshats, I didn't see anything like this playing the bad guys. If it's this bad on the RP servers I can just imagine how bad it will be on the regular servers. I actually like Smuggler quite a bit, but if I decide to play one I'll definitely be playing on a different server.

Yeah I am playing empire, a Bounty Hunter, having a ton of fun, and surprisingly the general chat is full of mature people who love to help out other people, very rare in a MMORPG

I really like this game. It isn't anything mindblowingly new. It is just fun. The best thing about this is I have fun playing it but I don't feel the need to play as I did when I was addicted to WoW in the early days.

Same here..I only played for 3 hours last night, I could have played a lot longer and be tired this morning, but I did not feel like I had to keep leveling just to level

Game is awesome! loving it!..

one question though, all the servers had max population but the PVP and RP servers. now i made a toon in a PVP server. I'm not sure how PVP works, does it mean you can get killed by your own side or only the oposite side can kill you? anyone know?

PVE servers have instanced PVP, and a couple of designated PVP areas.

PVP servers have instanced pvp and once you get to "shared" planets (planets where both the Empire and Republic scum have content), are pretty much open PVP.

So...PVE server: You're running around doing your quests, and come across a jedi. All you can really do is /wave and keep going.

PVP server: you're running around doing your quests, and come across a jedi. You rip him a new one and send him to the cloner in pieces.

Woah! Thanks for the link to that reddit!

I can't wait till they get all of the little graphical glitches sorted out. This game is really awesome.

It's like Bioware gave me a reason to give a crap about all of the quests instead of being hit with a wall of text every time I click an NPC.

Yeah man dialogue and voice acting are lot better than some single player games. All other MMOs are slackers compare to what they did with this.
