My whole comp takes a dump. Except for creating a Gorn and doing the Klink tutorial, the game stops EVERYTHING and I end up with the "Blue Screen of Death" auto-crash screen. Might be my card. Hopefully I'll get it fixed/replaced within a week.
Is the launcher stuck at "patching..." ? If so, look under processes in the task manager and shut down the game client and error reporter if they are still there. That is happening to me if I get a crash to desktop the last 2 days.
I too am having the same problem. I login, it gets up to the new loading screen then closes down. I tried opening up with safemode and it got me as far as the beginning of the character selection screen but nothing got populated before it crashed again.
I KNOW it is not a graphics card issue as my computer can run crysis 2 flawlessly on maximum graphics ( not to brag ) and I had STO on max graphics and it was working fine before season 4 patched. so I have no clue what is going on. I am thinking of dumpping the game and doing a fresh download, maybe that will help.
Yep, Ditto on all the above problems. I usually get to the character selection screen, but if I try to click on anyone the "gameclient.exe stops responding". Once so far I got logged in when I selected the character at the top of the list, but within 20 seconds of getting in, it crashed again.
I had the problems, too. I was using the client installed from Steam. I uninstalled it, and downloaded the client from the STO site. Once I got it re-installed, I went back and its been working fine ever since then.
Wish I could say how much I love season 4 but like all of you I can't log on to play. I myself get the following: "Fatel Error: Unable to initialize on-demand patching & connect to patch server. The connection was idle for too long"
Now before someone suggest I disable the on-demand patching I already tried that with no new results.
I hope the Devs find a REALLY REALLY good way to make it up to us because whats the point of playing a game that you CAN'T PLAY.
