Its okay! They want you to run this quite a few times to get the achievement and crashing at the end increases your achievement points. I have done this yesterday 5 times to get closer to the achievement and I crashed every time. With alt+tab on hyperspace tab, with cake on my table, with my mouse on may lap, etc. Bug has been around for almost 1 year and it seems they do not have the know how to fix it.

That's hardly an excuse. While it may be unknown what about that particular cinematic causes a crash, it IS known that the crash always happens during it. They could replace it with a different cinematic or remove it altogether until they can figure out the reason.

The alt-tab/minimize workaround only works if you're in Windowed mode. That means Windowed not full-screen (windowed). If you switch your graphics settings to windowed so you see a toolbar at the top and then minimize it should work.

I absolutely hate doing those two missions because of the crashing problem. The worst part is in SM if I'm with my buddy, we both crash. I end up back at the starting point and the game acts like I never did the flashpoint.

The only time I actually get to credit for completing it if I'm in a random group and someone made it through. I rarely get to Coruscant/Drommand Kaas without crashing. Hard Mode or Story Mode. It matters not, I crash to desktop every damn time!

When about to start last convo >>>>> Alt+Enter, minimize >>>> listen for the hyperdrive sound to go and come out >>> Alt tab and the mission is done because fleet is loading...

I have been doing that with esseles/blacktalon and foundry since like 1.6.

I think the interesting part is that it only affects some people. I think people also crash at the beginning of the Foundry or the end of Boarding Party, I can't remember, maybe both. If it is tied to going into hyperspace though (which seems to be the case), I wonder why it doesn't affect players on their ships.

They need to look at what they changed in 1.5, and fix it. That was the patch introducing these crashes.

After selecting the destination I was crashing every time, I avoided it by tapping spacebar as soon as I made the selection. This seems to skip the bug (for me at least).
