Hi,

After I exit STO the launcher updates the game again and again. Its a 2.3 GB patch which takes too long to wait for every time. How to fix?

I am having the same issue. However mine is a 5.5 gig patch. And Season 8 isn't due to come out until the 12th. Is there going to be yet another patch on Thursday and again on the 12th?

It's a pre-patch for season 8, you can let it patch up now or wait to the 12th and let it all patch up when everyone is trying to access the servers at the same time to get at the new content.

It's not broken. It is meant to be doing that. It's the prepatch for season 8.

Damnit! I thought my install was broken so I am reinstalling STO :facepalm:

I should have remembered this from LOR prepatching.

Tested before, but as off late i am unable to enter tribble for testing.
Tribble is open to Gold and Silver now -- that means all players as you're either Gold or Silver

No formalized Tribble Test Weekend, however the current plan is to provide a new, free Tribble as reward at S8 launch

Just close the launcher when it pops back up if you don't want to pre-patch. While it looks like it's starting over next time, the amount to patch should be represented by a smaller number. You still go 0-100% but the patch size should be smaller based on what you've already patched.

Every time you exit, you'll still get a pre-patch pop up as it's checking to see if you have the latest pre-patch version. If you do, it should close out fairly quickly.

It's broken in exactly the same way it was for LoR pre-patching: closes after a few seconds.

This usually indicates your pre-patch is complete/ up-to-date. Have you been staying up-to-date with Tribble patches? That may have reduced your pre-patch size.

Got both test clients up to date. Doesn't look like patching is complete, though, judging by the completion % displayed for download and patching, neither goes anywhere near 100%.
