Today after the patch went in I have noticed frequent lag and stuttering in the game. At one point it last for about five minutes and was so bad if it had been any worse it would have been unplayable.

And yes everything in my system is up to date.

I've been dealing with this issue too. Noticed my minimap is constantly flickering as well. Just submitted a bug report about it.

EDIT: Just saw the thread by 'e-manthas,' and tried switching it to Fullscreen (windowed). Seemed to fix the problem a bit for me too.

Greetings All,

Please do the following: Uninstall video driver, clean boot and then clean driver install.

Depending on the graphics card the uninstall can differ:

NVidia recommend completing this through Control Panel/add/remove programs.
1) Go into your Control Panel
2) Double-click the Add/Remove Programs icon
3) Select the NVIDIA Windows Display Drivers from the list of programs.
4) Click Change/Remove or Add/Remove button.
5) Confirm with Windows that you wish to continue with the uninstall

ATI on the other hand recommend removing drivers via their own catalyst:
1) Click on Start
2) Open the Control Panel
3) Select Programs and Features
4) Select ATI Catalyst Install Manager
5) Click on Change

AMD link:

Instructions on performing a clean boot:

When installing an Nvidia driver please choose the advanced install and tick the box for "perform a clean installation".
When installing AMD drivers, just perform the installation as normal after the clean boot.

Please post again to let us know if this increases your game performance.

Thank you for playing Star Wars: The Old Republic
