Why can't they just post the update file somewhere and let each "client" to download the update at our own speeds? Whatever.
Anyways, I thought I'd post what I have from the "patch_trivia" file, just in case the new patch doesn't take.
So there ya go. Hope the slow-az patch installs. I'll keep you updated whichever way it goes.
Otherwise, I'll go back to playing BGO (Battlestar Galactica) instead.
UPDATE: I did find an updated patch from
Perfect World here
I downloaded the "Patch Update" -
Patch 676-679: Released 11/27/12
. BUT, it's a
file. How/where do you use this???????
Still patching game....
2nd UPDATE: Well, after downloading-installing patch for 3 hours, it crashed. Galdarn good-for-nothing. F-YOU, CRYPTIC.
In windows, run a ping test from command line (Start -> Run, type "cmd", type "ping www.startrekonline.com" in the resulting black box) and ping the STO server. If you can't reach it, no amount of patching is going to fix the problem, unless the manual patch is updating your game files to try to access a different server address.
It appears to me there may be two different problems happening here for folks. If you're unable to reach startrekonline.com or, more specifically, patchserver.crypticstudios.com, then no amount of patching is going to help. It would be like taking apart your cell phone and soldering on new chips to resolve a problem that's due to someone at the receiving end having taken the phone off the hook.
