..... When I try to log into game I start launcher then hit play button, when I do after 15-20 seconds the screen goes black and I get a message that says unsupported mode. I had down the last 2 betas and had no problem till now. I have run the repair program and tried and same thing happens... Is this common or at least is there a fix to cure this problem... Thanks

This issue can sometimes be resolved by modifying the default Fullscreen option. To do so, locate the client_settings.ini file. You can do so as follows:
  1. Press the [Windows] Key + [R] at the same time. (The [Windows] key is the key with the Windows icon on it)
  2. Copy the following in to the text box and press ok: \Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\SWTOR\swtor\
  3. Open the settings folder and then client_settings.ini file in a text editor and modify the value FullScreen=true to FullScreen=false.
  4. Save the file and try restarting the game.
I hope this helps.
