This doesn't work. I still redownload shadercache.hogg EVERY time there's a patch. And it ALWAYS slows the patcher down to a crawl. Is there a reason this file is patched every time there's a patch? And why does it slow down to a crawl?

Another issue I have is, why is it that every computer I have looked at with a copy of the game installed has .hogg files of differing sizes. All of them are patched to the newest version yet not a single one has the same size files. Why is that?

That's some wacky patcher y'all have there, so any ideas as to when it'll get fixed? I mean, it has this problem in all Cryptic games and it's been around since at least 2009 in Champions Online.

C:\Users\Public\Games\Cryptic Studios\Star Trek Online\Live\cache

Next time you launch the game, before the character select screen, it will automatically put the latest version of the file back into the above listed folder, and *should* allow for the file to patch much faster in the future.

Hope that helps

Tried your fix, looked for others, still can't get the launcher to patch beyond 65%.

I recently bought and transferred ZEN to STO that I now can't spend on it because I can't get into the game! This is extremely frustrating!

I really need a resolution to this issue!

I unfortunately am having this issue as well. Deleted said file, yet it is now hanging with that file again trying to DL. Worried about missing out on my shards. Thanks.

Same issue. Have deleted the "shadeCache.hogg" a few times but still get the stall at 65%.

Stuck at 65% too, same as ccintron. Ctrl-X shows the patcher is wanting to re-download the shaderCache.hogg file, but there's just nothing happening.

Deleting the file did nothing for me either. I disabled the "Patch via proxy" from launcher options, and then the download worked fine. Don't know if that will help anyone, but it magically worked for me.
