    I know you can summon a companion via the icon in the bottom left of the UI via the companion (person) icon with the right arrow. Or, you can open the Crew Management window and click the same icon next to the companion you want.

    If you send the companion that is currently summoned on a mission, they leave you and the bottom left portrait disappears with a countdown of the mission time replacing it. That's all cool.

    But how do you summon one of your other companions that are not on a mission?

    The summon icons are grayed out for all companions in this case whether they are on missions or not. Clicking on the portrait summon icon does nothing and provides no error message.

    If you switch companions first, then send the first on a mission, you can switch between available companions no problem. It is only when you send a companion who is currently summoned that this is a problem.

    Is this a bug or by design? Is their a workaround, or do you have to cancel or wait on the mission to complete before you can have any companion fight/participate in conversations with you?

  • It seems that the only way to summon a non-tasked companion is to close SWTOR and then log back in with your character. I have raised a support ticket about this fault, thanks for raising it up :)

  • So, on my old character (before the wipe) I summoned the penguins when I wasn't ready. Boy, was that a mistake. I want to summon them again, but what weapons and armor should I get first? And are the penguins still Level 9? Because every other mob doesn't have a level. I'm not sure copper armor can be upgraded into silver. And I couldn't go to different threat level planets because they are now all level 1.

  • Possible Duplicate: Why does it say “that player is offline” when that player is most certainly online? My friends are telling me that I appear as "offline" in their friends lists while playing Diablo 3. I can join up with them, quest with them, trade with them, talk to them, and I am most definitely online. I opened up my social window and the icon in the top left shows that I'm "offline" or gray icon. So I switch it to the "online" or green icon. This does nothing, as each time I open the social window, it's back to "offline". Does anyone know how to fix this issue?

  • You don't have to take a mission immediately. There's a brief window of game time where you might be able to wait for a vital research to complete or for an important soldier to finish a medical..., and I never bothered to time it. I have my first MEC trooper about to finish augmentation in 4 hours, and an abduction mission right now. This is month 2, Enemy Within, Classic Ironman. Can I wait 4 hours for that crucial rocket-punching, fire-drawing, closest-enemy-aim-debuffing MEC, or do I have to take the risk with what I have? More generally, how long do I get to wait for any mission? Does

You can disable that explicitly in Account management / Transaction Management. ...I sent myself a reminder to get on the Playstation Network and download my free games before the 30 day window expires, but I don't see any way to do it.
