i`m having the same problem where the launcher will not ope just tries to connect twice then an error message this has happend before and i really do not want to download this game again for the 5th time this is getting ludacris the bugs and on and on come on guys what the hell it was working fine at 4 pm central time today with no issues now all of a sudden the launcher wont open so there r no options to adjust plus all websites work and the rest of my online games i know last time i was offline for 3 weeks i really hope this does not happen again
I just tried connecting on a completely different internet connection. I can get online, and do anything I want, but connect to STO. I can't even open the launcher. The only thing I can think of to do is wait until tommorrow and hope it clears up- or spend an entire evening re-installing the game.
I was playing fine 90 minutes ago and signed out. same thing the launcher doesn't even come up. I bypassed the launcher and ran gameclient.exe direct and there was hope it was working until it tried to connect to the account server then it sat and failed. So it seems they are having a server problem there and I am sure they will get that fixed. Can't leave your game offline like that and survive.
It would be nice if they would put up postings about problems on a timely basis, it would alleviate alot of frustration from users.
To me it says "Unable to estabilish connection to Pach Server. Please check your internet connection" The net is fine I am on line in the arena several hours everyday but since I came beck from work I've been unable to enter the game, and I tryed with 2 diferent machines...
I just filed a ticket and got an auto response back that said
"Your question has been received. You should expect a response from us within 3-4 business days."
I just joined a fleet. Not a serious one, but I make the jump to join one after flying solo for a year and a half. Between this and the connection issues I've been having over the past couple of weeks I'm starting to think it's time to move on.
just adding my name to the hat after a good solid month of playing. played last night with no porblems (minor lag in the STF's but other than that no problems whatsoever) until i try to log in tonight....nothing. little white box appears "trying to update login servers" hangs there for about 2 to 3 minutes, then "oops" window appears telling me that they cannot connect to the launcher. the short and skinny is....it's borked. the long and fat of it....broken code somewhere in the newest patch data that won't allow us to connect to the launch server. that's it in a nutshell.....fix it soon , please.
update: checked my STO files, checked my internet connection, everything seems to be fine there. tried restarting, and relaunching. no dice....it's somewhere on the server end in the launcher auto update.exe....got a "no response from the client server" popup as well as the standard one. hope this narrows it down a bit for the techies.
"Boy....Don't tell me about how "ubergodleet" you think you are. I was playing games long before you were even a twinkle in your daddy's eye....ever hear of Commodore or Ti99? Yeah....it's like that."

For all the good it will do I sent another email off to support, I really dont think they care. But they will have to notice eventually when noone can log in anymore, this really is annoying. We will see what develops but if I have to cancel again I will not come back until I know this is fixed and even then, lots of new and better games are coming along.
why sub when the game is F2P you dont loose anything beside the zen per month and that can be made up from dailies ingame in a couple days time.
but yes I am having the same issue I get little window that says " trying to update the launcher. Please be patient." after the " tried connecting 2 times." I get another window the says "patcher error the patchclient got a message while it was in a state with no response function"
the only way I know how to fix this is to uninstall/reinstall the game which is a pain in the A$$ becuase then I have to repatch it all over again
Cryptic PLEASE figure out what is doing this and fix it. this started happening at the begining of this year and happen every few months for me and I'm tired of reinstalling.
not sure this will apply to everyone but its worth a shot. If you know someone from the game that is able to play and have a way to chat with then online besides ingame have them send you there .exe file and then replace yours with theres if I had a way to post the .exe file online I would do so and will work on trying to do so in the next few hours and if I do I will post it here so everyone can take advantage of it.

If I go to the download link without uninstalling any files would it try to download the whole thing and rewrite everything? Is there a file I should delete so it downloads a new copy without needing to spend all night re-downloading the whole game?
