Additional Comments

Fantastic performance, runs on high detail settings (including the highest quality shaders) with the Nvidia proprietary graphics drivers. Tested with Nvidia graphics version 375 with a GTX 1080. Shadows on "High" causes stuttering when rotating the viewport but all other settings can be maxed out and look as good as on Windows. Tested with the winehq-devel PPA build of wine 1.9.23. Still requires swtor_fix.exe to be running in the background for networking (otherwise the game doesn't load past the title screen). This program is marked as "Gold" due to the need to run swtor_fix.exe, NOT because of performance or stability issues. Once you get it running, it runs with comparable performance to native, with no major problems regardless of what graphics detail settings you choose. Recommend that you have a recent, dedicated graphics card and run proprietary graphics drivers for the best chance of good performance and bug-free operation.
