After you fly back to your ship and watch the cut-scene of the ship crashing your client crasheses right as the background ship crashes. Seems to happen pretty often

Confirmed: Bug is still present. Try to do Esseles solo (I did with lv 19 Scoundrel) for rep, crashes every time IF you leave the window up.

I was able to get by the bug by clicking a conversation response and IMMEDIATELY minimizing the window, so looks like something to do with client graphics display. I posted this 'workaround' elsewhere too.

This workaround does not work. For me and many others. Game is broken yet.

Have you tried the workaround of setting your game to Fullscreen, instead of any kind of Windowed?

My game's setting always be Full-screen.

I find a solution from other player via "flapping" the game screen(Alt-tab out and back)
,and try to make the screen skip the animation by using background mode.

I'll try it later. I wish that work for me.

Is there any way to turn off this broken warping animation?

I don't like to flapping all the time when I move my ship from one plant to another, and it annoy.

This problem already live since 2012 or before, and seems like ready hard to fix.

My PC (AMD Radeon™ HD 7870) is not very powerful but can play -
Planetside2 with high quality smoothly
EVE ONLINE with High quality that 2 accounts in Jita or doing lv4, mining ,0.0 operation, WH gank, etc...
In Swtor, doing everything is fine, but the warping animation always cause a little screen frost no matter in star ship or in quest. Esseles is the worst situation and game crash to desktop.

Sorry for bad English.

Same goes for the Empire equivalent Black Talon. It crashes when you go to hyperspace at the end.
Because we do think in language. And so the quality of our thoughts and ideas can only be as good as the quality of our language.

How has this never been fixed? I'm pretty sure I've posted in a thread like this almost a year ago. And i just made a new toon and tried to solo esseles and got booted at the same point as always. I've even upgraded my card since then, running a Nvidia GTX 760 and still crashing

I can do the tab out workaround only when in fullscreen mode, works better when i turn all graphics down to super low. I normally play windowed and on the highest setting, very strange

Still a problem. Myself and 2 other guildies, each in separate instances, bugged out on this.
I've had no luck with any of the suggested workarounds posted here.
I made a ticket on it and got the usual automated responce to look here (go figure).
Will be following this thread and hope there's a sollution soon.

Yup, still a problem. Initially, i thought it was graphics card related (i normally use an ATI card), and it always crashes, through several generations of them (4870, 5870 and 7970).

But now i have a secondary computer (Asus ROG *something*), with an Nvidia GTX 660 card (i think), and lo and behold, that just crashed too (newest drivers available).

So this is apparently a crappy coding issue, not a client issue as such...
