Im sorry to sound like an idiot, but I dont know what that is. I do know that I had been previously playing the game with lowered settings, but I really don't know what I'm doing?

I just want to play the game.....
Okay, if the Cryptic loading screen was getting to 75% and then crashing, then you - like me and some others - are one of the ones affected by a... disagreement between the 10/3 patch and some older video cards.

Fortunately, a fix was developed Tuesday and over the last two days has been tested on the Redshirt test server and so far, all those affected by the problem with the 10/3 patch who tested the fix on Red**** - myself included - find the fix solves the problem. The fix will be applied to the Holodeck Live server with today's (10/10) patch, so you should be able to play later today.
I'm beginning to think the current 'two seasons a year' set-up needs to be rethought. It just seems to cause incomplete and bug-infested 'seasons' to be pushed out just to meet an artificial summer/winter deadline when many players would be fine getting one 'season' a year if it meant that it would be a really good one...
