I have downloaded the open beta a few times now and have yet to get it to work. Always stops at the launcher window with just the background and STO logo. Since i work in a computer shop i decided to bring it into work today and try on a machine running XP and has a internet connection. Bingo it worked now i'm like whats the problem at home???
I've unblocked ports,tried several compatibility modes aswell as run as Admin. I've tried on both Win 7 64 & 32bit (wifes pc)
Once the update is done i will back up the dir and dump and ovewrite the one installed at home hopefully this will work.
here is photo of my problem. I will post dxdiag when i get home if need be. Bit hard to sort this out whilst at work :S
Ok, this forum software sucks. I had to reply to your post to see the entire URL so that I could actually view the image (seriously?)
After seeing the image I'm voting for the client thinking that it's up-to-date when it really isn't, although I couldn't say for sure. If this is the case, there should be a way to force-patch the client. I'll do some digging and see what I can find.
Thank you. That's what i though so i did -console -help and it did bring the commands up for the launcher etc..
then it just got confusing. . I hope u are able to find something. I will copy the contents of the folder i got today form work (seems a lot more than whats in mine back home well for starters has the Live folder).
I'll keep you all informed and I'm very thankful for your help so far.
