I've tried everything mentioned above and cant seem to get anywhere. The game loads about halfway thru the Cryptic logo then closes. When I try to go thru the launcher again it says patching and just stays there. Already tried to reinstall, used the links above for the launcher and still nothing... same issue. Any other ideas or word if this is a big issue with STO right now? Not sure if its just a handful of people or widespread.
dont mistake it though, im still not able to play the game, hell i cant even get it to download the client now. been in contact with support about the issues but since i havent heard anything in awhile has me a little concerned. so today i tried to download the client again both from steam and the website and i get msg box that pops up that says "cryptic error oops". it wont even download the client. so i figure if i could download other games from them i could narrow down the issue so downloaded champions online and it worked fine. so again why have i ran into all these problems trying to download/run this game????
Game client wont run, more precisely when i click on startrekonline.exe or shortcuts the launcher tries to load then stays as minimized window forever, cant see whats happening, cant write user/pass.
Not sure if this is the same problem u guys have, its quite frustrating since i was playing fine, closed the game for 20 mins to do other stuff and couldnt make it run again.
Any help appreciated.
BTW i just re-download startrekonline.exe from this post links and no changes.
Same here, Problems all started after that last patch, first I was randomly getting DC'ed then superlagg and after my latest DC it won't let me back in or should I say the launcher won't Maxmizse Can I get some help here?
Getting the "Cryptic Game Launcher has stopped working message". I have tried the minimize/maximize fix and it didn't work. How the hell do I get a message to Cryptic about this if I can't get into the game and open a ticket? I'm not finding where to do this outside of the game. Any help is greatly appreciated.
I am so not seeing where to do this at checking properties of the game but not seeing anything related to launching into maximized.
I skipped around the launcher for the moment by just directly launching the game this will not work in the future when I need patches tho.
How do you maximize the launcher? The launcher worked fine for me last night but today it is gone. when I open it it shows up in the taskbar but nowhere on the desktop. The taskbar allows me to minimize it but not maximize. I've tried changing screen resolutions, reboot, downloaded the launcher again, and nothing. Can't get into the game at all because the launcher is not on the desktop.
