So, I haven't been able to play for almost a month now due to a launcher update error: "The patchclient while it was in a state with no response function."
I run the game as an admin, have reset my wireless connection, and even tried to run it from the game client in the Cryptic folders. Has anyone else encountered this and if so, were you able to find a solution?
From what you've stated in your post it sounds like a botched install. Have you attempted to uninstall/reinstall? If not, when you uninstall, please make sure to delete all left over files and folders in the Cryptic folder. This should make the install a relatively "clean" install and providing that was the issue, you should now be able to log into the game w/o issue.
