Hitting space bar to kill the cutscenes will also work to inhibit the kick to desktop.
Nope, that never worked. Tried it a dozen times, always crashed.
It works, you just have to minimize the Windows instead, since "alt-tabbing" while in "Windowed" mode won't do it. (The workaround is to just have SWTOR not displayed on screen during the "crashing phase". The way to do it does not matter).
Anyone getting this error that does not have ATI (AMD) cards btw? seems to be what I hear here on forum and ingame. Must be some driver incompability BW havent sorted.
I'm running an HD7850, maybe it is a driver issue. Maybe if I'm feeling adventurous tonight I'll swap in an old Nvidia card I've got lying around and test it out.
