No such luck here. I have been getting the NodeSpecCache error all day now. I was able to get in twice for a few minutes only. I am in the US and am set to English. Someone please please figure this out! I have a machine that far exceeds recommended specs with a 3.4Ghz process, 1GB dedicated VRAM 8GB of memory and a 1.5 TB HD. From what I have been able to play, I love this game! Please fix!!!

Found a solution on Russian forums. No need to make fake account. All you need is:

1.SWTOR account user name written only with English letters (don't use Russian or any other letters), still can use different symbols like *&%$# and other
2. Your computer profile's name must be in English letters too.

First is not a problem. For the second here is the instruction below:
1. Download program "User_Profile_Manager_"
2. Install it
3. Open and choose your's computer profile
4. Press "Rename"
5. Type new name for your computer profile with English letters (You will need administrator rights on your computer to do this).
6. Reboot you computer
7. Play
8. ???????
9. PROFIT !!!!!!!

P.S. Works perfectly
P.S.S. Come to the Dark Side

I agree.
I have seen this error in the beta.
The error seems disappear in the EGA period, and returns the first day launch.
I am too angry to say more words.
Fix the problem, now please.

After a large process to complete the list of possible solutions, a clean reinstall of the game works for me, but maybe not to you. Seems that there isn't a single solution for this issue, and there is multiple problem sources for the nodeSpecCache error.
