★★★ Newbie

Okay i open my launcher and and sing in okay in my normal screen resolution settings but when i hit play it changes my resolution to 800x600 and it the game opens the loading screen but it gets stuck. it also is shrunk to take up the left hand corner. I have tryed Alt + TAB nothing, i went into the %LocalAppData%\SWTOR\swtor\settings but the file was empty so that may be why if so please tell me how to fix it was fine in December.

★ Guide

Try going to %LocalAppData%\SWTOR\swtor\settings, paste the attached client_settings.txt and rename it to client_settings.ini (it won't let me attach .ini files).

It's from my PC at 1920x1080, Fullscreen (Windowed), Very Low graphics preset.

Best thing to do initially when it goes like this is to simply press the ALT + Enter keys to go to window mode

Above is the content of the "client_settings" .ini file, but the content is for my PC and my monitor res is 1920 x 1080. So if you want you can paste the above content in your games .ini file , if you face any further problems just change the resolution according to your monitor. I have underlined (IN BLACK) the places you got to change the resolution.

 

I hope this works for you, cuz it did for me. Standard smile

You will have to change the "Height", "Width", according to your monitors NativeHeight and NativeWidth settings.

Delete the client_settings.ini it'll reset everything
