BioWare Warns Against Making Custom Changes to SWTOR Loading Screen

Posted Wed, Jan 11, 2012 by Martuk

Some Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR) fans have been enjoying their own custom loading screens thanks to a recent post from Reddit user rainer511. Unfortunately, it appears that tampering with the files to do this could corrupt your SWTOR installation.

In a recent post to the SWTOR forums, Associate Online Community Manager Joveth Gonzalez warned fans that if they make the changes, they do so at their own peril.

Hey everyone,

We’ve noticed that many of you have been going into your SWTOR game files and overwriting the default loading screen. While this has resulted in some very impressive custom loading screens, we need to remind you all that changing game files will corrupt your installation and force you to repair with the subsequent patch.

Overwrite your SWTOR loading screen at your own peril.

Thank you

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.
