Hi everyone, 

I'm creating this space to house dev updates regarding the PTS. I am hoping this is easier for all of you to find info about this initiative.

Important info on 64-bit testing

Please follow these steps if you experience a crash: 

  • System specs - processor, video card, OS version
  • What were you doing before the crash happened?
  • Please provide a DxDiag report and send it to support@swtor.com with the subject line 64-Bit PTS Testing

As there are thousands of permutations of processor, memory, graphics card, etc…we're especially on the hunt for issues that show up with specific configurations. Please play as you normally would, and if there is anything strange happening, let us know about it! 

Currently, we have received reports of client start up crashes. Please note that if you are one of the players this has happened to, it is possible that you do not have the necessary DirectX 9 installed. Please install the June 2010 Direct X runtime and try PTS again. We would like to rule out if this is the cause for this particular issue.  The download link for the June 2010 Direct X can be found here

Please continue to use this thread to keep us updated on your experiences. As mentioned before, I will be posting all future updates here to consolidate dev posts in one spot. 

Changelog - Updated as of 2/24/23

PvP

[NEW] - The amount of medals has been adjusted to improve the completion of the season: 

  • To receive full credit for the match, players now only need to get 7 medals instead of 8.
  • The associated objectives that referenced 8 medals now only require 7 as well

Credit Economy

[NEW] - Originally, the Stronghold travel tax was "Travel to Strongholds now costs the original planet travel costs to transfer between planets." This has been changed to: 

  • The Stronghold tax will be charged on exit if the player is at a new planet when they exit
  • Please note that this is NOT reflected in PTS but will be implemented on live.

[NEW] This change should now be fixed and working properly. "Durability of equipment should now be lost at a LOWER rate on death, but a slightly HIGHER rate in normal gameplay."

Known Issues:

64-bit 

  • Trees and foliage as they will look broken or be completely invisible. Upgrades are being made with the modeling software that builds these environment assets which is why they will not appear as functional during this phase of testing.

Hi all, 

Slightly repurposing the OP here to also include known issues for this current phase of PTS. I'll be updating this post as needed. Added the following:

Thanks!

Hi everyone, 

We received reports from players that they are unable to completely log onto the PTS as they do not see anything on the server list. If you are experiencing this, please follow these step so that we can do further investigation into this issue: 

  • Send an email to support@swtor.com and in the subject line include "7.2.1 PTS - Empty Server List".
  • Send us the host.developer.log file  C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Local\BioWare\Star Wars - The Old Republic Launcher\ on Windows
  • Send us the client log located in the install directory <Wherever you stored the game>\Star Wars-The Old Republic\publictest\retailclient\publictest\logs
  • If possible, please indicate if you are experiencing this on the the launcher, Steam, both, or if one is working and not the other
  • Be sure to include your account name!

Thanks all!

Hi everyone, 

We received reports that some players are seeing a maintenance error message when trying to log onto the PTS. We will be resetting the PTS shortly in order to see if this will fix the state that these players are in. Players who are currently on PTS should expect a bounce soon, but the server will come back up immediately after. 

Thanks!

Hi everyone, 

We're setting up another play test with the devs for tomorrow, February 16th at 1:30pm CT to further test the Alderaan PvP Map. Please note the following: 

  • This phase of PTS will be closing on Friday, February 17th at 5:00pm CT
  • As a heads up, the Opal Vulptilla mount can only be earned during this phase of PTS, so you will no longer have the opportunity to earn the reward after the Friday deadline. 

See you all during tomorrow's play test!
