Here's how I get it to crash faster:
Take an account with several characters on it who are capable of crew skills. Be in Windowed, rather than full screen. Then do crew skills. Log one character on, send all the companions out of crew skills. Log off that character and bring on a different character. Send that character's companions out on crew skills. Rinse and repeat till it crashes. Just lots of logging on and off, switching chars and sending companions out on crew skills.
This brings up crashes fairly quickly. About half an hour before it crashes, as opposed to 2 or 3 hours when you play a char constantly.
Another note about crew skills. It seems to crash more often when you bring up the window for actually creating something. And by that, I mean Artifice, Archeolgy, Cybertech, Armstech, Armormech, Synthweaving and the other one(s).
I hope this helps.
cool post., I like it!
I myself am just depressed to check this out and see this issue is at 55 pages and counting, with no bugfix that resolves the problem
