Not our usual sort of content I know, but an unbelievable number of people have been asking us how to do this.  And since we pride ourselves on being first and foremost a Steam fansite, we figured it was fair game.

We compiled the C# code on this thread (forum links change a lot) and put together something quickly to help get you going.  Known to work on both Windows 7 and Vista.

We will make this post much more robust shortly but for now, here are the basic instructions:

  1. Download the file below
  2. Place it in your SWTOR root directory (mine is: C:\\\Program Files (x86)\\\Electronic Arts\\\BioWare\\\Star Wars – The Old Republic)
  3. Go to ADD A GAME >Add a Non-Steam Game and Browse and select the file (swtor4steamaddicts.exe).
  4. Launch the game as normal
  5.
