I apologize if there was already a post for this in the forums and I managed to miss it...
So, as the topic says, I have snagged myself a copy of SWTOR (digital download).
This game has been driving me up a wall for two days, now. Starting up the launcher and logging in goes fine, but the moment I hit the play button, the screen flashes black for the barest of moments before the application crashes back to desktop. No errors, nothing. A check of the task manager reveals that nothing is even running when it comes to TOR as the launcher automatically shuts down the moment the game is launched. Ran a check through the launcher logs, each time I have attempted to start the game has resulted in a "successful" start up. I've gone through the motions that were listed in the help forums for TOR and that were recommended by the tech support staff (Starting up the game via the Origin Client, starting the game via the start menu, starting the game via the desktop icon, downloading the setup from the site and installing over the Origin download, running the launcherfix, running the game windowed instead of full screen, bypassing the launcher and running the game from the .exe, giving the game .exe administrator permissions, running everything under administrator, checking my firewall, checking my windows firewall *which was off*, deleting the entries for the game from my firewalls and attempting to run the game again, turning off my firewall and antivirus, yaddda yadda) and as you can see from my posting here about it, nothing has worked. I have run CCleaner and defragged, restarted and restarted again, checked my registry, almost everything. ...Everything short of uninstalling, attempting to wipe it from my registry, and sitting through a long reinstall... I really hope it doesn't have to come down to that.
Is anyone else having this problem on this site or am I the only Speshul Ray of Sunshyn when it comes to this?
