Well, out of the last 4 major releases, this is the first one that I could actually log in and play. So maybe someone somewhere is learning something. Small consolation for folks who are locked out yet again, I know.
I too am having the same issue. Tried disabling the anti-virus software - didn't work.
Tried disabling on-demand patching - didn't work.
Tried deleting the game cache - didn't work.
Is anyone at Cryptic even listening to this thread? Why is their quality control so poor? This is so frustrating as we have only 15 days to get the 4th anniversary ships. Will Cryptic give more time because we can't play? No. It seems that the kneejerk reaction from them is that it's always our fault somehow. The game for me was playing perfectly before 8.5. Now I get Error 36 and that the on-demand patch server is idle too long and I get kicked out.
Patched the new 8.5 season, and it wont let me get past the Cryptic Loading Screen. I have verified all of the files and it wont actually let me past the Cryptic loading screen.
Ticket number: 14179889
same problem here nothing but the cryptic loading screen then after 10 minutes it comes up with a message saying something about patch server connection being idle for too long. now I'll never be able to get the new starships
P.S I contacted cryptic customer support three days ago about this and they said they were working on it I can only hope they get it fixed soon because I can see several ways this could turn out one being that a lot of people stop playing the game entirely (including with much regret me).

Ooooh look, an error was found, do you wish to verify files?..... this for the 5th time in 24 hours[/quote]
I feel for you It's asked me the same question 20 times in one day I eventually gave up and came to complain in the forum where I found this topic nice to see most people are getting further than me as you saw in the above post I can't even get past the cryptic loading screen
