    Black screen on character creation

    When i get to the character creation screen on SWTOR, the screen just goes all blackk but it still has the ui around the edges allowing me to choose my class and read about everything, anyone else have this problem?

    P.s. i have put this on the SWTOR forums as well but no answer on there

    occasionally your screen will load in too quickly, and you'll see nothing but black. Then once the images start loading, everything goes back to normal.

    If you see a black screen, wait a few minutes and see if things start loading up. If they don't, contact customer support.

    Press Ctrl+U twice to reset your UI.
    Also make sure you are using the latest graphics card driver.

    The rating windows uses is just a rough guide for what it should look like. In reality the numbers themselves don't mean much. What you need to do is compare your system specs to the listed minimum requirements. If you're any lower than that you'll have significant issues running the game. If you're around the minimum you may still have some issues if you try to turn up settings.

    If you're over the minimum requirements, you may want to try repairing your client using the launcher.

    This is what generally fixes it for me.... time

    No but seriously it usually takes about a minute and everything is back to normal.
