yea the same as me and i too newer had such problems
i just readed some upper post and the developers or admins of game say that 90% its our pc that hawe problem that the game is not running????!!!!! then perhaps me is stupid or what but how the game can run before the patch without glitches( i was playing yesterday ,just before i get sleep,i turned my pc off),today i patched the game and it not running,perhaps some gnome over night uninstaled some drivers,or kicked my PC with leg??? or its just that the patch 2 february 400mb over is cousing the problem???
Unable to logon to STO after last night's patch (also submitted as an error report)
Fatal error: Direct3D driver returned error code
(D3DRERR_INVALIDCALL) while creating a texture
(D3DRERR_INVALIDCALL while creating 2D texture size 1 X 1
(1 mips, RTEX_R_F32), 4.00 GB memory available
Do understand please, I've been playing STO for 2 years and was in fact playing until just before last night's patch/maintenance.
I've never encountered this problem before today and there have been no changes made on my computer of any kind. All software here has been verified as being up-to-date as well. There are no hardware problems either. All of the facts have been carefully verified.
I have rebooted my PC twice and have tried accessing STO with my firewall completely shutdown and offline. Nothing I do at my end; as is suggested in the forums or your "self-help database", has made any positive influence or corrected my access problem.
I am now completely unable to access STO and this has; again, been true immediately following last night's patch/maintenance.
