No, it was fine until I guess the patch to fix the broken game was deployed. This week. But then again I barely played during dantooine.

I guess it’s also possible your game files became corrupted. Have you tried to do a rebuild?

That's odd. I played for about 3 hours yesterday with no issues.

"through windows error?" are you talkin about blue screens?
if so, its more likely that one or more hardware components are crashing while running the game, due to the heavy load on cpu and partly gpu. overheating would be my first guess.

check your tempretures etc. to find the problem.

(before you say it: yes, your system might run newer games without any problem, but swtor and its engine require high single core frequency, which could cause an overheating core for example. especially if you overclocked and the system is not 100% stable under heavy load.)

You might want to verify your hardware anyway. You're having a problem that isn't game wide, so it sort of implies that part of the issue is on your end. "but it didn't start until the last update" isn't really relevant, because hardware works just fine, until it doesn't. If a lot of people were experiencing the same issues you are, you can bet there'd be a handful of threads on the first page, since a search, or just scanning the first page for a topic regarding an issue seems to be taboo in the MMO community at large.

I did ask in the game chat the problem and one or two did say they were having problems as well.

Not everyone goes on game forums.

Not a bug I encountered. Most of my characters in strongholds. No problems logging in.
