# 1 Unable to load into SOL
01-31-2010, 04:48 AM
Anyone having the issue where they just can't load into sol after completing the tutorial, I had no issue in beta. I have tried reloading in several times with no luck. Any suggestions that I could do to possibly fix it would be appreciated.

The loading screen gets to 90% and just doesn't move. I had an issue with the vega system earlier but closing the game and logging back in fixed it.

I had exactly the same problem, and you're not going to like the solution.

Short Version : delete your install and re-download the client.

Long Version :

Essentially I had two installs of the game, one from a play.com pre-order that I cancelled, and one from the steam one I kept. When I hit this problem yesterday [with the play.com client] just after doing the intro mission, when first docking at earth. A ctrl-alt-tab and then bringing up task manager look showed a dialog indicated some kind of file load problem.

So I ditched the play.com version and went to steam, which , for reasons only mentally disadvantaged know, it decided to re-download the ENTIRE client (which took 5 hours, after which the login server had been crashed by the yanks). But when I finally got in this morning it worked fine.

I really hope there is another solution minus redownloading 12 gigs for a 2nd time(3rd if you count the beta)

THIS is one reason i do not ever want to buy a game only for downloading.

only dvd's..
also it is unbelievable for me to buy a game for 60€ and then have to pay that i can use it, too?

strange kind of ... getting ripped

I may sound like a dummy for posting this but what exactly is SOL? I know SOL as being "S*** out of luck"

or did you just mistype STO?
