Hi, I cant get past the Cryptic Launcher Autoupdate. It seems to not be able to connect at all to cryptic and after 4 tries it gives this error "Unable to establish connection to Patch Server. Please check your Internet Connection. If problems persist please contact Tech support". Everything else that I have works except Crypic games such as STO and Neverwinter. I know my internet works fine because, well, im here posting, lol. If anyone has any information about this that can help me, that would be great.
I realize you may not have gotten to the last part of my thread, about it being an ISP DNS issue. The only workaround I have tried is a VPN service (AKA another ISP) which does allow me to log into the game. I'm not sure if it's an approved method or whatever, but it could work for you too
Yes well I have tried this Hotspot Shield suggestion but not only did it not let me even get to the launcher, but it also instantly gave me a virus that I now have to contend with and remove. I guess all I can do is wait for an official PWI tech person to get ahold of me, if that ever happens.
