My game has been working fine since I got it when it came out, but just today I went to get on and seem not to be able to. I can log in and patch fine (although there was no patching that needed to be done), but after I hit "engage" it hangs at the Cryptic screen for about a minute. Then it crashes and I get this:
Fatal Error: Unable to initialize on-demand patching and connect to
Patch Server: The connection was idle for too long
I tried again and verified all the files first, same thing. This happens no matter which shard I try to get on to.
Thanks for the advice Playa90. I actually already had the proxy set to none; just for the sake of it, I tried turning it on again and still couldn't get through.
I also disabled on-demand patching, since that seems to be the source of the problem. Right after a patch showed up, which I let fully download, but it still didn't work. Didn't work with the on-demand enabled again either.
