I have the most recent app version - but after this morning's STO patch I am crashing after a VERY long Loading screen (10+ minutes on the Loading...screen, used to be at max 2 mins) to desktop. Gets through Loading, then crashes before the character selection screen.
can you be any more descriptive? They should at least attempt to do something.
I'm running into a similar issue. I've grabbed the direct download exe from sto.perfectworld.com (ST.25.20121026a.8_EN.exe) but when I click "Choose Setup Executable" in Wineskin, point it at that exe, and let Wineskin work, it comes back with
"Oops! No new executables found! Maybe the installer failed...? If you tried to install somewhere other than C: drive (drive_c in the wrapper) then you will get this message too. All software must be installed in C: drive."
and I can't proceed with the install. Is there a specific exe I should be using for the Wineskin setup?
I'm having a lot of trouble installing it, I've googled how to do it and it is just computer talk that I don't understand. I think I've figured out what to do but I keep getting an error message that says "If you tried to install somewhere other than C: drive (drive_c in the wrapper) then you will get this message too. All software must be installed in C: drive.". What does this mean?
I suspect that the file you are downloading is not the actual STO but an installer wizard. I am having the same issue. We need to be able to download the actual STO that contains the setup.exe.
All these websites are supposed to update their version of the game periodically. I would not be surprised if none of them had the actual file we need and just carry the one thats given out. This will likely never change, I hate to say this but the skin needs to be updated to accept the FTP version of the game download. I could not even find a torrent of the old version.
guys... the installer EXE you download form this site is NOT the game... its a program that downloads the game for you. That program will NOT work... you need to download the full game before even trying ot use th wrapper. That means your download will be several gigabytes in size.
That means get an app like Transmission or anything else that does torrents.
Go to the download page... http://sto.perfectworld.com/download
and click to download the torrent... Open the .torrent file to download it through the torrent programs (Transmission or BitTorrent or whatever you use). Once you have that full download, there is a setup.exe you can use with the wrapper.
