Hello, was not sure if this is the right spot to put this but here it goes:

I currently play SWTOR on and off, casually. Last time I played, I could play for hours and hours and have no issues at all, but now, after updating yesterday and playing today, the game will randomly crash to the desktop not giving any errors. All my other games are working 100%, problem only with SWTOR. I am currently playing on Windows 10.

I have tried deleted the bitraider files as suggested in previous threads, and I have tried this:

My last option is to completely re-install the game and download but I do not really fancy doing that. Anyone have any suggestions?

Hello Roxio,

Windows 10 as i've said before is still "new" and in my experience is prone to issues. I would suggest downgrading back to windows 7/8/8.1.

Cheers,

I am not sure what has changed tho....last month I could play fine, but now it has changed. I will try it via compatibility mode and get back if it works.

I had windows 10 and the same problem... then i changed with win 8, the game wouldn't start if i had other programs on(like skype or advanced care) so.. now i'm on windows 7, no error... the game works flawlessly. I would suggest to change to windows 7.

Been playing for about an hour now, I deactivated my antivirus (which is Avast) before I loaded the game, and turned it back on after I got in-game. Seems to have no issues now. Will update later for reference for others that have same issue as myself.

Make sure all your drivers are up to date - graphics, audio, chipset, and LAN. Sometimes, updates to Windows can result in conflicts with old drivers.

Update, still crashing but not as often. Everything is updated as well. One of the first things I checked. Would be great if I even got an error code or a log to share.

Actually, if I recall, I had a few CTDs shortly after I went to Windows 10, but they stopped happening after a while. I guess the updates to the updates may have cured the problem. It's hard to tell - it seems like every other day I get an update to something.
In fact, if I recall, I had CTDs when I upgraded to Windows 10 with my older i5-3570K build, but then shortly afterwards I rebuilt my system as an i5-6600 ITX build, and somewhere along the way the CTDs stopped.

Btw, have you tried disabling your anti-virus?
