It must be some glitch introduced sometime between 9pm EST last night and 1pm EST today.
I was playing fine last night but today I go to launch the game and black screen... it doesn't launch at all. After a while of trying task manager shut process down and retry to launch it hangs windows itself (quite a feat considering this is Win8!).
I was having issues the last day with it sitting on the logo screen after logging in and clicking the engage button.
It would just sit at the logo screen not allowing me to access the character select screen.
Re launch the launcher.
Go to the options on the upper right part of the launcher.
select safe mode.
Ok, I used to enjoy this game, but due to a problem with patching I gave up
I have now come back to STO in the hopes that i would be able to patch the game and enjoy it again.
My problem is:
I open the launcher and log in
I then wait for the game to patch and eventually it starts to
at some point, it may be 1% it may be 40% it will just stop patching
the launcher still works and I can click on all the links in it, but it refuses to continue patching.
anyone know what the problem is and how to solve it?
