Another patch....and STILL, we are CTD!

Fix the bloom'n memory leak! BW - you've know EXACTLY what the issue is, and you have for going on 4 MONTHS!

Patch on January 15, 2013....I'd bet my sub fee - the memory leak won't be fixed with this patch EITHER.
CTD...every 120 mins...since : 9/26/2012

I think thats a safe bet. I don't know why they call it "maintanence". They don't seem to maintain or fix anything. They just keep adding recolored stuff the the Cartel market. They should just call it their weekly "restocking", because that's all they seem to do.

I wouldn't be so quick to blame the game, google "blank red screen windows 7"

I am not defending bioware, most issues I see though with the client are resolved by something else.

Agreed - I don't recall seeing any sort of "maintenance" being done since the 1.4 release (when the CTD began - in abundance) to correct the CTD errors.

We have seen new items, new content and of course, new bugs.....BUT, we have also seen some repairs done.

Clearly, the CTD bug isn't a high priority.....changing the color on items, and re-releasing them seems to be though? Shouldn't a bug....that disables your players ability to simply RUN the game - not make sense to prioritize?

We know from posts...that Bioware IS aware of this bug/glitch...whatever you wanna call it. This need a fix....because quite honestly, if there is NEVER going to be one - please, have the sense to tell us that...so we (or I in this case) can take my gaming money elsewhere.

My card does meet the minimum specs, it even meets the recommended specs. I made sure when I bought this computer that it could run the game. The problem is with the game, not my computer.

That was why i said disregard, the intel one does not meet min spec, the nvidia card does.
If you know the game is using the nvidia one then all is good. (selecteable for each game)

Did you read the thread i posted in your post, intention was that you could use the workaround and not crash.
