Evening, I scanned the last few pages and didn't see anything other then your post just above (looking for more info from you).

 

That said what you did say if I am reading this correctly is that you are getting a blank server list once the game loads up?

 

If that is the case, I would suggest looking at the firewall settings...(As per the guide again), please take note that I only go into explaining the Windows firewall settings, and briefly only touch the AVG, Norton and the like issues; Because in all honesty 'Owen' (Proxos666) leaves me for dead in his understanding of those programs and he has explained the work around's on a daily basis.

 

*If I read this wrong, I apologise... I am aware that folks do get the error sometimes where their screens turn Black except for the faintest white line down one edge of their screen; That particular error is where their X+Y Anchor values are not =0 where they should be (This is a different line in the Client_Settings.ini that is not a persons Resolution values ie 1920x1080).

Could I suggest adding your Launcher Log, a DXDIAG, and your Client_Settings.ini files to post if you have concerns moving forward and still seek assistance.

Swtor isnt hard to install 

 

Worst case if your having issues installing

 

  1.  create a folder where you want the game installed
  2. grab the repair utility from this link and extract the files into that folder
  3.  make the changes per this link 
  4. make a desktop shortcut for launcher.exe 
  5. start the launcher with the shortcut

It does install, i thought this "solution" would fix the audio stuttering and lag that i've been encountering in this game

Try an install as per step 3 in my previous post, this will free up some resources and may help with the lag maybe

 

If it persists make a new thread and attach a dxdiag per this link and can help look further

EA, 

 

IS THIS BEING UPDATED FOR WIN10 WITH *? 

 

Is this the best guide even though it's 2015 ? 

 

Can we please get a newer version with all that you have learned in the last 2 or more years since Windows 10 Launch as * has been out for a year and Microsoft announced that Win10 is the last version of OS they plan on releasing. ?
