very weird
 
so i downloaded sto installed fine and done. tried to find the installer now to back it up after people with all the re downloads.

so i tried to find the installer for star trek. its in my downloads folder. its a directory. click it. i see a folder called directx, piggs and a setup.exe that is 2megs in size. nothing else.

i cant even find where star trek online installed to in my computer lol.

wtf did D2D do with the files it downloaded after I installed? and where is the installation?

edit: found it in public> games> cryptic studios > star trek online > live> piggs> and all the files named hogg.

so it would appear that the installer moves all the files over to there from where it was downloaded and didn't really 'install' as we know it.

so people who patched on sunday by accident and tried to 'reinstall' said they onl had 108mb after install because the game couldnt reinstall because it had just moved everything you downloaded.

I believe the default path is

C:\Program Files (x86)\Cryptic Studios\ or C:\Program Files\Cryptic Studios\

installation folder is at

C:\Users\Public\Games\Cryptic Studios\Star Trek Online.exe

if you want to find the download location, search for the extension .hogg

those are the unpackers & large in size

Oh thats right, I forgot I changed it manually.. It must have saved on the installer =/

i found the download folder.

i can open it directly by using the download client from d2d.

except all the .hogg files are missing from the pigs folder. :)

weird still.

when it installed should it have unpacked the hogg?

Wait for the new version of the D2D STO download that will allow you to make a backup using that. Thanks to coderanger :D

you saying we've uncovered something wrong with it? welp i miss open beta. no way i can download 7.xx gigs again in one day.

Theres nothing really wrong with it, its just having a few issues that are plaguing some people who use the installer and others who are working out fine.

k so if sto is installed correctly, i can open the star trek.exe right? which i can, and i try to log in and see the server is offline. i see the news about open beta.

but tell me, is there a folder you can browse for the installation which shows game files other than .hogg?

if so ill know mine isnt installed correct.
