Well now they put up this alert on the launcher:
"Crash to Desktop Upon Launching"
We are investigating an issue where "some players" who are running Windows XP may crash to desktop upon launching the game client.

Try "ALOT " of players or most who are running Windows XP. lol
Can't believe you guys didnt test the launcher for older systems that are posted as compatible for this MMO.

I tried calling your technical support line, but it said "45 minute wait." lolz

It would have been nice to know that you'd need the entire armor set in order to 'register' it in the Collections. I guess that slipped someone's mind.

I'm massively disappointed. Next time, be more detailed and thorough in your descriptions of new features.

Well gee Bioware, if you're gonna piss off this many people with a new patch, you might as well revert the Tracer Missile animation switch as well.

Edit: And to everyone who is upset over this patch, please, spare a thought for that innocent Twi-lek girl who's life was tragically cut short when she was dropped into the Rancor pit for the amusement of Jabba the Hutt.

To be fair, any support for windows XP has been gone for a while. I'm even surprised you can play the game on XP. You should really consider upgrading to 7 or 8. Trying to play new games on a 10 year old operating system is a bit silly.

...to be fair alot of us may not have the additional funds to buy a new computer system at the moment, and they advertised support for Windows XP. Your comments are irrelevant.

My Windows XP machine was working fine 24 hours ago before the new update. No issues.

Really like the latest 2.1 update

1. The kiosks work great, cartel coins involved are rather reasonable
2. Dye modules are quite nice, too bad they are in a lottery system when you buy the CM ones, but lots of other choices as well. 48 total for this update as i understand.
3. The logon queues were a little overflowing right after the update as everyone tried to log on, but that's to be expected

One remark though when you buy the extra human hairstyles, the qui gon jinn style hair (last but one on the slider) which i really like is sticking through armour on the back and shoulders, maybe it should be a little shorter so it disappears under the actual chest layer.

Keep up the nice work
