So.. Much.... FUD
Please, before telling someone to educate themselves, *please* educate your self.
Gabe Newell certainly did not start a "rumor*. He publicly stated what developers and publishers had been saying for two years up to that point.

You know, I had a whole book wrote here explaining what actually happened with Microsoft, Nvidia, ATI, Id software, and 3d Labs in the last two decades. I was going to explain how video hard ware works, and how the migration from super expensive working hardware became the cheap gaming cards of today.

But i have resigned myself to being a bitter old man griping on his porch about the twitter generation that has no idea what came before to enable their 160 character self absorb-ness

I've had a chance to play a bit more, and get some more data points.

Conclusion: Yes, it is better. But, yes, I still CTD.



I can swap toons as much as I want, and travel to multiple planets, and still expect to play for about 2 to 2.5 hours just fine. This is a big improvement, as prior to the patch, I could only expect about 30-45 minutes under the same conditions.

Nevertheless, I still CTD after that 2 to 2.5 hour mark. So, it's *better*, but definitely not *fixed* yet.

It looks like the last patch undid the fix and made it worse for me...
CTD more frequently and one process is 1.2gb ram and the 2nd is stuck at .3gb, where both were somewhat stable at .8gb when it was 'fixed' or atleast improved

My thanks to the techs who rolled up their sleeves and tackled this issue.

Well it would seem that in fixing it for some they have increased latency issues for others. O used to run in the low 50's with little to no spikes. Now I am often around 80+ with large spikes being common now.

Actually, for me, running Windows 8.1 64-bit, I've started getting routine crashes to desktop when switching characters or switching between worlds -- and that never happened prior to a week or 2 ago.

THREADSSSS....

so you think your crash to desktop is ONLY attributed to SWTOR, not say the windows updates that have occurred since then, or other updated software.

Enough so that you choose to necro a thread almost 9 months old for an ancient patch?

Hey, I've got a dog I lost 20 years ago, think you can bring him back too?

So why the overly rude reply? He necro'd a thread. Point it out and move on.

I was pointing out that a patch from March 2013 probably has nothing to do with his current PC problems. Additionally Saying the game is the cause of such crashes is also often times incorrect.

The power of necro was strong with this one and was curious is could expand that outside of the game since obviously zombie puppies are always a wanted thing...
