For the past 4 days I have been unable to proceed passed the "Cryptic" Screen. Not sure what I have to do but I would LOVE to see a solution to this. I have had the game since Beta and I know for a fact that Perfect World and Cryptic Studios wouldnt care that a customer since BEFORE launch is losing a customer as well as the respect for the Companies that produce and maintain my favorite game but this is getting way out of hand and has to stop. As I stated earlier I would appreciate a solution to this problem.
I might have just found a fix. I have Norton security for antivirus. I had to disable my smart firewall and then I was able to connect to the patcher. I will see if it will get past the loading screen once I finish reinstalling.
