That one isn't but probably they'll close the servers for a while because of the GTN bug...

I never even used it in the preferences... forgot it was there!
On the Internet, you can be anything you want. It is strange so many people choose to be stupid.

um there was an option for this in the preferences menu? I kinda thought that was what the customize tab was for.

just uncheck the "color to chest" for the head and you can hide it.

I'm just wondering why things like this never seem to break on the PTS after these patches, or is that they do, but there's not enough players on the PTS to notice?

A guild mate has informed me that even this appears to be broken. Once you enter a cutscene, the companion's helmet is shown on despite the setting from the character menu, and when you exit from the cutscene, it stays on despite the setting from the character window saying it should be off.

Wait you can toggle it from the preferences window?

Might be easier just to have it on the character sheet it its bugged.

Yeah, that's happening to me, too.

The interaction problem with the two places to find hide head slot was reported on PTS, as was the known schematic and curator problems now being reported in customer service. And glz's reporting on the sli fps issue went on for ages.

The gtn problem does appear new on live, other than it being cleared out because PTS was down for so long it seemed to work.

So far, I've been able to hide the headslot on my companions (have to have them summoned and sometimes I have to toggle it first) but hiding the head slot is not removing the voice alterations as it should.

Ah, okay. I thought I had to exit my ship to hide their helmets because they weren't disappearing when I hid it while on board but that's not it, the helmets just won't disappear while on the ship. I hid helmets, got back on my ship, and everyone's helmets were visible. I added that bit of info to my bug report once I discovered it.
