After struggling with my launcher not updating after what seemed like every update (and trying everything from port forwarding to getting a new ip), it dawned on me to try tethering my phone to my computer and update the launcher through there, and it worked. So I will try my hardest to keep this updated with the newest launcher every time mine fails to update through my home internet. Therefore I will know when there is a problem of the launcher not auto-updating, and I will also have a way to get a launcher that will work.
Latest Star Trek Online.exe as of: This link should be auto-updated
You are the man Brandon! I figured since I found a way to get my launcher to update, I would share it with everybody that has a similar issue. I'm sure the problem is not on the server end, and not on my end, which means that its probably my ISP (actually more like most likely, because they really do suck). But its the best internet I can get living out in the sticks. I appreciate the effort and everything all you guys do for the game, as I am sure many other STO players do.
AHHHHH!!!! Similar issues... I had a problem with my cryptic launcher auto-update yesterday and you guys at STO put out a general message saying that there was a problem with some players probably regional. well today I opened the game up and yes you fixed it for about 4 hours I had to download the whole game again and at some point my gameplay froze and when I force closed, guess what... problem came back! not cool.... Please help someone.
With the issues yesterday tried constantly for 3 hours to log in with 2 simi successful logins then locked up on patching from changing maps.. Since everyone from the West coast of the US seemed to have no problems it seemed maybe the routing system on the east coast might have issues, but between me n my ISP have 40mb connection did the net test n what not, had over 1,000+ kbs connection with all the stuff except those congo links that failed to reply...
After 11 PM yesterday pretty much after east coast prime-time like predicted I was able to log on and play without any issues. But today at 5:30 pm, 30 mins before prime-time, guess what, issues r back...
Well I had no problems at all last night after work. I was able to get in and bounce between my account and my son's without issue. Today after work I can't get the launcher to connect at all.
Nice job Perfect World. I played 3 years ago during beta and they had problems like this then. I quit and never did buy the game after the beta because it was terrible then. Then a year later I played again during the 1 year anniversary. I never experienced the issue then, but this same stuff was happening on the forums for SOME people. They tried blaming Comcast and some specific providers and how they routed stuff. Now it's 3 years in and they're STILL having routing issues with this game. No other MMO has these problems, why is STO plagued with this still 3 years later?
This stinks man, I really had some time to play tonight too.
Same thing today, was able to log on earlier today, but not now.
Would it not be better to have a standard log-in program and only
have to update the game from time to time, then need to update
Maybe everyone would be happier if we were compensated for our
trouble and down-time, like maybe 3 free keys for the lock boxes or ???
I mean I'd be much happier with free keys... just saying
