client_defaults

located in the swtor/retailclient folder, looks like this

[Renderer]
Width=1152
Height=864
WindowX=-1
WindowY=-1
FullScreen=true
doShadows=true
[Repository]
BaseResourceFileName=..\..\Assets\swtor_
Yeah, but what do you change?

Well, not sure if it's related but I have an AMD card. Turns out, new drivers were released, today. I updated the drivers and have no issues now.

If you did it via Windows, it shows they are. I had to go into the Catalyst Control Center and do it. Under the "update software" tab.
If you already did that, then damn! That sucks!
