I launched the game a few minutes ago and it started downloading "main asset 18". But when it came to installing, when the bar reached 45%, i got an error and the launcher tells me to click repair. If i click repair the launcher start downloading main asset 1 (which is 11 gigs).
Is there NO other way around that?
Did others encountered the same problem?
If I allow it to download mains assets 1 will it continue all the way up to 18?
Will redownloading fix the problem?

P.S. I was able to play up until now. Last time I logged out was 4 hours ago.

Downloading will fix the problem, however there are 2 fixes.

1) Go into your program files folder and locate asset 18 and delete it.

2) Locate the patch manifest file and delete that.

Redownloaded and the problem is now solved. Curiously it did NOT download all of the 11 gigs. It finished under 8 minutes. I can now play again.
Thank you very much for your replies.

Can you upload the Main asset 18 file somewhere? I can't download it myself. Made a thread with my problem here aswell: http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=47428

While I was prompted to download this, it stated an error, I got frustrated and went for a smoke and when I returned it resumed and completed. It may just be stuck. Give it a while.

Speaking of this patch, however. My game has suddenly become slow-motion, matrix style despite 100+ fps

I think that the launcher was actually verifying the file. Not downloading it.

I'm unable to find a file named Asset 18 or a patch manifest file (I'm bad with computers).

Any chance you could give me close to what the exact file names are?
