And tabbing out makes no difference this time. Any ideas on how I get around the CTD when hyperspacing, please?

Space bar as fast as you can right after you select yes or no.

Tried that, doesn't work. Still CTD. Tabbing out, still CTD. Window Mode, CTD.However, so long as you're still in a group you seem to log back in after the event. Leave the group and you're knackered, you'll be stuck in Esseles, unable to complete and you'll be forced to exit without receiving your SP.

I saw this last night but it was affecting the person in my group rather than me, so I suspect it is a local issue rather than a game issue. I went through the cut scene without him in the end which let us finish.

Maybe running a repair on the game files or re-installing the game might help? Could even be a driver issue if the last patch contained video updates or any kind.

That was the first thing I did. Didn't make a difference. I also just ran it just now and both of us crashed. Now I'm stuck in Esseles and forced to exit without SP.

This is a known bug that only affects certain models of certain video cards of a certain manufacturer. This is not something Bioware can fix, it is solely a driver/hardware issue.

beg to differ on the card issue. my friend and I ran this a couple of weeks ago and it was fine. she ran it with her husband on the weekend - it was fine.

today we ran it and it keeps crashing. this is not a card or hardware issue - this is definitely a *game* issue.

edited to add: end convo lags like hell and so does party chat - when *inside* the instance.

I had a guarantied crash in Black Talon when the game released, now after a year I came back to play a republic character this time, and have a guarantied crash in Essels. Something is seriosly broken in those 2 starter flashpoints, since I never crash anywhere else in the game.

This is not a local error, and it afects several types of machines and/or vídeo cards... The bug exists...

^ This.
My roomie and I have the same problem with Esseles, it happens about 95% of the time. However, we have two completely different rigs, so someone saying, "it's just one model of one brand..." is blowing smoke up their ***.
Anyway, I don't expect this to be fixed, so I just skip Esseles now.
