I've searched online with no luck. It's been sitting at 0% for an hour. This is after I uninstalled and tried to start over because I had the game installed from a while back and it wouldn't patch at all. It said "download complete 100%" with a grayed out play button. I just subscribed, and can't even play. Very frustrating.

That said it will make all future downloads without Bitraider which has to many problems.

1. Close SWTOR

2. Search for Launcher.settings it is in the SWTOR folder

3. Open in texteditor.

4. Find the matching section in the file and delete the 4 lines and replace with this:

, "PatchingMode": "{ \"swtor\": \"SSN\"}"
, "bitraider_download_complete": { }
, "log_levels": "INFO,SSNFO,ERROR"
, "bitraider_disable": "true"

5. SAVE if notepad make sure it is saved without .txt tacked on to launcher.settings.txt

6. Delete the bitraider folder

7. cuss cuss cuss because there is no way to use the existing files to shorten the download like you could at one time.

it helped me a lot.
