I've recently purchased the M4 Crucial SSD 64g and I put SWTOR on it. My game crashes more frequently but after a number of crashes I eventually get Error Code 5, failed to load game assets.


I tried booting other games off the SSD and they seem to work just fine (this is after error code 5) so it can't be my SSD?

Greetings Exathine,

Please close the client and go to this location:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\BioWare\Star Wars - The Old Republic\

Please run the FixLauncher.exe file in the above location.

Once this is complete, please start the Launcher again(please ensure that launcher.exe and swtor.exe have Administrator privileges) and run the Launcher repair function.

After this is complete, please login again and try to connect.

Please post here to confirm if this resolves the issue for you.
