Well... I thought they'd have fixed this after open beta was over, but I suppose not.
Frequently, when doing exploration missions (for now in the Delta Volanis Cluster), when attempting to explore an Unknown System, I get the error message and the game crashes. Incorrect/Unreadable version of some hogg file (not specified in the error message).
I also wonder what kind of hash check or something (if there is indeed any) is being used, because verifying the game files does not yield any errors. After each crash, the launcher force verifies the files anyways. Never found an error.
I tried reinstalling the game (with the instalation files I obtained through Direct2Drive) and re-patching, but the problem persists. It's not every single time, I can get to explore unknown systems, but the errors occur very frequently.
PS: The error does seem to occur less frequently than it did in the Open Beta, but still...
I am still encountering these "Fatal Error: Hog file incorrect/unreadable version" when doing exploration missions.
Force verify of files never caught anything wrong. I checked the thread Areanna linked to, and I got the installer executable for the game from Cryptic (star_trek_online_setup.exe). Did a clean install through that, downloaded the whole game (7GB downloaded data - 10GB patched, guess there's some compression going on), but still getting the errors.
Any word out there about what's really causing this issue ("zones" not properly coded/inserted in the file packages, or whatever), and if there is a way to fix it?
Well... I did the hash check as was instructed in the sticky thread in this forum regarding corruption, with the files I got directly from Cryptic, through their installer, zeroball installation and pretty much none of the hash checks was equal to the ones posted...
Not sure if it was because of a patch and they didn't update the sticky's info, but if my files are "corrupted", even though I got them directly from Cryptic (instead of using my D2D files), I have no idea of what to do. =/
