I have now waited for an hour for to get into ESD (can't go anywhere else because I'm locked into the loading screen) this is now beyond a joke I have tried to restart my computer and restarting the program and I'm still stuck (what the hell is going to happen when FTP goes live and everyone wants in )
I have just logged in on to holo deck and got on right away
Agreed 100%. I am now on my 3rd attempt to beam down after 2 server timeouts. They know about the problem but, like the transporter, are in no hurry to do anything about it. I bet if there was some kind of exploit connected to the delay it would have been fixed in hours not the weeks this has been going on.
I've have one of my characters (Meej) stuck in the ESD loading screen as well.
Someone here in another forums said they got in after disabling on-demand patching.
So I tried it. HA! I'm not doing that again.
Patching Tribble crawled by and took 4hrs. I hit "Engage" at 11:55pm, game loaded up fine, click 'Meej' (the stuck character) and found the loading screen hadn't changed. By 12:05am I had gotten bored with waiting for it to do nothing. I quit STO while it was at 95.98%
If this were Redshirt I'd simply delete this character and re-copy it over from Holodeck (it's my copied character) but as we only have 1 copy (which of course I've used) I don't want to delete Meej as I won't be able to copy her back over to Tribble.
I'm now avoiding ESD with my other character & using DS9/SB39 for my shipyard needs.
In the mean time I get someone to move my character out of the loading screen and into Sol System or Sirius Sector?
