I'm assuming I'm not still the only one who has the crash issue at the end of Esseles - as you get the final hyperspace animation?
It starts, the game crashes...totally. If you're lucky you can relog and as long as there is one person still in you can carry on. Otherwise you lose the whole run.

This was introduced a patch or two ago. It went silent, I've just this moment experienced it again. If I'm the only one - any ideas why?
If I'm not, any ideas when this might get fixed?

It happens to me at the end of Black Talon, too, sometimes. Dunno if it's Hard Mode only, though.

The "fix" seems to work...that being as soon as I've clicked on the final person we chat with I have to immediately alt-tab out of the game, listen for the sound effects that indicate the hyperspace jump has been completed and then I can alt-tab back in and continue.
But hardly a fix :-)

Yep happens to me each and every time, on each Republic Character I have, most recently today and yesterday.

Greetings All,

Stoofas' workaround is what we are currently advising on this issue. There is a graphical event causing the problem and we are working on preventing this type of crash in an upcoming patch.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused and thank you for playing Star Wars: The Old Republic

Does this only work if someone stays in last time I did this everyone crashed to Windows and the crash semed to happen as soon as I hit my destination (I was the last one) how can I alt tab that qucikly to stop the crash?

Have you tried turning your gfx setting to low just prior and dropping resolution to say 800 x 600 and untick bloom etc and see if you can not crash at this point ?

This bug is still at large after Tuesday's patch. Crashing in Esseles, Foundry and Black Talon. Has been happening since 1.5 and I'm wondering if it's ever getting fixed.

They actually haven't done any maintenance this week or the week before. If there is a fix coming for this bug, they are patching on this coming Tuesday. But that is also the Gree event patch, so likely won't contain any bug fixes.
