This has been going on for so long that it is no longer a bug, but now classified as a feature.
I am really getting to think that all the competent coders left SWTOR for some other project. And we are left with people that just bash on the keyboard till they get the desired effect, but they don't care about how that new effect breaks other parts of the game.

For example, patch after patch this is still broken as well as Companion Unify color. Now Everyone's own color matching is somewhat borked. The last update broke the Color matching feature of your own toon. Just try and select one item to color match. You have to do the overall color match the remove the item you did not want color matched and put it back on.

Every patch I cringe for what they have broke.

Happy Holidays.

Hopefully it will be useful while we're looking into the issue with Hyperspace animations that some players are seeing.
And still no fix as of this date.

I ran this solo with my companion, graphics very high, fullscreen, vsync on, native resolution 1920x1080.

This workaround should also work for Black Talon and Factory.

When you get to the point in the FP where you are crashing, simply ALT+TAB(minimize if in windowed mode) out of the game before the hyperspace animation. Wait 30 seconds, open the game back up and continue the FP.

UPDATE: After talking to Harken, immediately ALT+TAB out of the game. Wait 20-30 seconds for "jump to light speed" animation to finish. Open game back up, finish flashpoint. Or simply minimize the window if your playing windowed mode. No need to go through all of the other steps.


I hope this works for everyone else.
But you cant really minimize the game when you're in Full windowed mode though, whats the solution for that?

Also, how do you explain it keeps happening to me and others, where other players never have this problem? They don't all know about this bug, some are even new, and i explain it can get bugged and it never happens to them?

I'd assume its something to do with graphics/video settings but i dont think minimizing the game will make any difference.

The only difference would be Highest Graphics settings, higher resolution then others (higher?)
Also using Supersampling AA. I got 2GB of vidmem so that shouldnt be a problem either compared to other players.

Excelent. Glad it worked for you all.

Maybe one of you bright folks can come up with a reason and solution to the level 7 space missions are not showing up, except for the two weekend missions? CS does not want to hear about it, tickets have been closed without response or action so I'm here, on the boards, tin cup in hand. ;p
May the Schwartz be with you....

Hit the Windows key. That will minimize SWTOR from Full Screen mode. Minimizing from a Maximized windowed mode should be the same as any other window.

Turning off Bloom fixes it for some it seems.

He was talking about the Fullscreen (Windowed).
For that you only have the option to switch to one of the other modes and apply the workaround.

Is this ever going to be fixed? Could you focus on bugs more then the cartel market.

Problem happens on both my machines ones running a gtx 580 and the other a gtx 680. Both machines current on drivers. Have also tried older drivers with no luck.
