No offence intended, but no other game has any issues. This is the only game I get crashes in (and to be fair it's only doing it on that particular quest afaik).

It's not the sound drivers. Or the graphics card drivers. Or the fact I have a fraction of an overclock to 4GHz. Next it'll be dust in the case (and no there isn't any....). Or maybe I should disable my anti-virus? That's also never going to happen. No, this is an issue with the game, pure and simple.

Was thinking my little 32-bit Windows XP with 3g ram was part of the issue, but now Im starting to see that perhaps it's not. Why get more ram when that's been proven to still do it with ppl who have 8 gigs of ram? it was all fine before 1.4.

1.Name of server. Jedi Covenant
2.Name of character(s) affected. All - Quidon Zael'us, V'dori, Ilson, Satei, Su'toka, Caeyl, Om'manil, Q'el-dor
3.Frequency of crashing – how many crashes, how often? very often, since 1.4, more often now since 1.5.
5-7 times a day, every hour or so now.
4.Any potentially helpful information about crash triggers, what you are doing before a crash, etc. : happens at any random time during normal gameplay.
5.Your DXDiag in spoiler tags

You would think they would have wanted to fix all this memory leak stuff before they went F2P, but I guess not.
And now 1.6 is going live?
Hope 1.6 deals with this issue.

Name of server. Harbinger, Jedi Covenant

Name of character(s) affected. All characters

Frequency of crashing – how many crashes, how often? Started happening today. Was working fine with no crashes yesterday. Logged in today and after 15 minutes of playing, lost connection, bumped to server selection screen. Tried to relog on, instant disconnect back to server selection screen.

This cannot be a problem on my side as it was working perfectly fine yesterday and given that I am experiencing the exact same problem everyone else on this thread is. Absolutely nothing was changed on my computer since yesterday when the game was working as it should.
