Just as the title says. The launcher patches and patches, seems to get hung up on something, and then restarts the same download over and over. I've already tried uninstalling, and then reinstalling. I've tried verifying my files, too. So it's definitely something going on the other side that's messing up.
I hope they extend the first contact celebrations because of this. It'd be a reason to nerdrage if I missed it because of a technical issue outside of my control.
UPDATE: Someone found out which file was failing to be loaded.

The launcher thinks it is downloading data, but it isn't. It keeps trying to get that file over and over. I let it run the other day and when I got back, it was showing something along the lines of:
Patched 1024KB / 233MB
Received 3500MB - 0%

Reason: The problem has been identified, but a dev needs to know.
Hi, launcher wont work for me too, I been trying since Wed last week and still cant get in . Keep saying the launcher can patch. Hope the devs fix this soon, have 2 special project for my starbase and hope they wont cancel it
does anybody know if there is anything done about this??? i just downloaded and wanting to play for the first time but same thing it just stops patching, even tho it says its still receiving. closest ive got is 93% does anybody know whats going on? are ppl able to play at all?
I'm unable to play since the Crystalline Entity patch went live. It patches up about 70MB and then doesn't proceed any further. Windows network stats show data is coming down but it doesn't seem to apply the patch to the game. I've left it for 30mins at three separate occasions and no change.
I'd say they need to RE-patch and fix this error ASAP as the CE event is a TIME-LIMITED one and people are going to miss out on their crystals to count towards those dilithium reputation rewards.
If they don't fix it in a timely fashion then we should be credited towards the rewards at least. Other people are logged in and making progress, what about those who are afflicted by this technical issue?
