yep all weekend i have barely played at all, i can see ships going back and forth, getting the server "connection" time out indication on my screen every few minutes. I dont know whats going on. Checked everything on my end seems fine.
So I actually used my other computer, rarely use it for gaming but its a solid built pc, anyways installed a fresh copy of startrek online on it, though had some issues at the start "to other issue threads going on" where the patcher wouldnt patch the launcher and kept getting disconnects ect. Finally after a few trys it worked and patched it. I have prob the best speed I can get with broadband, so it only took a few minutes to patch sto.
Got into sto and again to my surprise.. kept getting a few server disconnects/not connected to server issues, lots of ruberbanding ect.. it was pretty much a nightmare. Iam not sure why others arent experiencing this "as in alot of folks" but yeah for some reason Iam having alot of issues with the game since recently, think it was just after last patch it all started.
ive also defragged, virus scanned, everything else you can think of on my system so its not me lol.
Does this happen whenever you change instances (go from one map to another, beam down, enter stfs, etc.)?
If you haven't already, open your game launcher, click on options, then make sure "Disable on-demand patching" is checked. The game will then download a 4gb patch. For me, waiting to download 4GB was more than worth eliminating the endless downloads between instances.
If you already had that checked, then there is another problem...like the one I am having tonight. I usually lag and rubberband a lot during the weekends or evenings during peak usage time. STO's netcode isn't that great in that it requires much more data transfer than most online games.
