This issue has been happening for a while, any ETA on a fix? I'm sure there is more important bugs to fix but it is really annoying especially on Coruscant and Nar Shadda...

This is one bug I haven't heard of, not to say it isn't a bug.

But have you tried the basics like running the repair on the launcher after login (lower left cog) and deleting the game cache file called DiskCacheArena.

I would think this is likely more video driver related , can you post up a dxdiag ?

I have done all of the above, also it's not just the pc I use for playing star wars on, it also does it on my parent's pc which is higher end and from two completely different stores and from two different company's my computer is low end asus with on board graphics even though its low end it does run the game rather well. Also I get sound stuttering while I space bar through ship leaving stations to loading screen. My parents PC is more high end for gaming however I have had nothing but trouble with it for SW and the flickering/flashing speeder happens on that PC as well. Both PC's are running with updated drivers, the one thing in common is they both have ATI cards. Both 13.1 drivers. With my asus, I have no idea how to do a DXdiag with windows 8 sorry...

Sound stuttering is a known issue on load screens

From the desktop press Windows Key + R, type dxdiag

Hmm nope still haven't heard of this being a major issue recently- hopefully someone else running AMD with 13.1 can say if this occurs, I gather you tried clean install of video drivers and different versions.

Tried different in-game settings and tried running in compat mode for XP sp3 on both launcher.exe and swtor.exe ?

DxDiag would still be useful to be posted here especially if it is a bug

Ahh I have seen this with ASUS systems recently , and not 100% why but I suspect it is to do with the current ASUS driver needing to be completely removed.

Whilst you thought you where running 13.1 your drivers are actually a year old

Funny and it says on automatic updates the drivers are current, how would I best update them and which ones?

Also how do I remove the Asus driver?

Updating the ATI drivers now
