Fatal Error decompressing data.
Been playing STO for a few hours then the moment I join the Cure STF I get this:

Error decompressing data. Verifying Files in the launcher may fix this issue.: Texture_Library/Ui/Kits/Team_Window/Team_Sidekick_Turnoff.Wtex:

Now I've verified my steam files and selected the option to force verify in the STO launcher but every time I start the game I load into the Cure and crash again.

Anyone go any ideas?

Just out of curiosity, what Anti-Virus package do you use??? I use Nortan/Symantic myself and never had this issue...

And have tried configuring your Anti-Virus package to ignore the STO directories?

I use Kaspersky Never had this problem before (and I was a subscriber for over 400 days)

Ive had the game since Beta and it's only now that its occurred.

I deleted my texture.hogg and it fixed the problem and Ive been playing since my first post now it happens again. Seems weird to happen so infrequently

Well if it's doing this when you have your Anti-Virus active & running try turning your
Anti-Virus off then see if it fixes the problem but if your getting the Error thats saying

Error decompressing data. Verifying Files in the launcher may fix this issue.: Texture_Library/Ui/Kits/Team_Window/Team_Sidekick_Turnoff.Wtex:

it's very likely the Data involving that particular file has become Corrupted
some how and I'd suggest if there's no Mal-ware or Viruses causing this
issue just Remove the game and do a Fresh Re-Install of the game as that
might work.

Thank you for posting this! I started getting these crashes when I got my new graphics card, so I just thought that was the problem. I am trying the re-install now and updating my antivirus to see if that fixes it.

Any solution now? Its so annoying, created a character with several crashs and now cant even play, because it crashes right at the start. How can it be?

I get these errors as well. In fact, I was able to get back on-line and then noticed that all of my crew members lost all of the advanced skills. Now I have only 4 to 5 hours into my character, so I did not loose weeks, months or years of work. I plan to start the character over from the start. However, I am concerned that if this happens again I plan to put the game aside until the future as it would be to frustrating to loose that much work.

From reading the posts above I observed a suggestion, it may have something to do with anti-virus updates (as I have mine set to every 4 hours). So I plan to disable my anti-virus update while playing to see if the error resolve themselves. Just a suggestion, have to start somewhere.

GL all.

Happy to report good news :)

Last night I played for over 6 hours with no problems. I turned off my AV updates and for now things are looking good. I will give it a week before I would sound the all clear.

Yes, I did delete my character and start over from the beginning.

Hope this helps others.:cool:

Well, great, but is there an actual solution now?
