Clearly this is an issue that's related to a 3rd party software. It will be up to you to hunt down and disable or uninstall said 3rd party software that's interfering with your communication with the game server.
Please understand that before you go all: Hey, it works fine with such and such game, not all games are created equal. In a nutshell; just because something else works doesn't mean this will. I know that sucks, I feel ya, I really do and I'm trying to help you get past this.
In short, you'll need to find that software or process and kill it in order to play.
i just bought a sabertooth z77 with the intel i7 3770k so i read the comment about it not likeing intel network mangeing so all you have to do is go to the ai suite go click tool then network i control then turn it off and it works perfectly so enjoy and cryptic /pw FIX YOUR CODE
from what i know this fix will only work if you have ai suite or network icontrol
The issues still persist. Able to log in fine, sector space loads quick...until about 57%..then it creeps by for a few minutes and when it finally loads, I'm unable to move in sector space, missing UI elements (ie: stuff's missing from my power bar, doff text isn't displaying, transwarp doesn't work, etc). I've tried everything I know to try...has anyone else had this issue and/or know of another fix I could try?
every time you load a map, game is autopatching some files, you can speed load times by disabling on demand patching in launcher.
first time you launch game it might start download large amount of data, and when patching to new version downloads will be slightly larger, but game no longer download files while zoning, and load should be no longer then 10-15 sec.
as for rest, if you didnt, you can try run game as Administrator.
