Artifacts in SWTOR after updating to 15.7.1 drivers

So after upgrading to Windows 10 and installing the latest drivers for my R9 290X, artifacts are appearing in portraits when I'm in a group or more commonly, whenever I'm in a loading screen.


Here's all the solutions I've tried so far, to no avail:

  • Running the repair option in the launcher several times.
  • Reinstalling the game (twice).
  • Clean uninstall and then reinstall of current (and past) AMD drivers.
  • Reinstalling Directx9 and the DirectX End-User Runtimes 2010 packages.
  • Lowering all the graphical settings in the game.

So far, none of this has corrected my issue. Here's some screenshots of what I am currently experiencing:

This issue ONLY happens while playing Star Wars The Old Republic; other interesting notes are that the artifacts over portraits in a group only happens when I enter and instance (although it sometimes stay after I exit it) and when going in and out of conversations. The loading screen sheananigans only seem to happen when I travel to my ship, stronghold or planet. Maybe somebody has an idea of what's happening. It's this a driver issue or is there something I can do to fix it?
