I was able to play the tutorial, get to Sol, escape the station, flee to the Serius Cluster, and all of the sudden I cant ever finish logging in. I'm stuck staring at the warp drive menu not loading at approximately 75%... forever.
Could someone help me solve this problem?

Still having this problem. Playing on recommended settings wont let me load into a new zone. But I can play the game fine otherwise. I can play and load the zones fine on lowest settings, but the game looks like crap.
I am having the same issue with this. I cannot load certain zones on anything other than minimum settings. It just hangs at the loading screen giving me game tips. Once I load it under minimal, however, I can crank it back up to recommended settings, most of the time with very little lag. I would think if it was a hardware issue on my end, it shouldn't work at all at higher settings. Funny thing is, this only happens at certain load points. For example, I can load from Sector Space to Sol System under recommended settings. I cannot, however, load from Sol System to Stardock. I cannot go from any system to Sector Space with anything other than minimal settings, and vice versa. I can load some zones; it seems I can load zones inside an instance with no problem.
Here are my specs:
Windows XP SP3
Radeon HD 3870 512 MB Ram
Intel Core 2 Quad CPU
The only thing on the list I'm not quite sure it above board settings-wise is the graphics card. I am assuming it's good enough to pump the graphics up to recommended (but not maximum obviously). If that's not the case, let me know. I would consider buying a better card, but only if it's my issue, and not the game's.
Even after all the patching and improvements, I still hang while playing the game on anything but minimum settings. Please fix this. As much fun as I'm having, If I can only play the game on dull graphics, that stinks.
