I once had the problem that it would lock up between changing from Holodeck and Tribble before the patch check was done, before the patch/cancel turned to Engage.
But usually if I wait for it to cycle, it resolves itself.
The Error message is 110514 19:09:50 2  ESC : The patchclientlib is returning error code : 29\nThe net comm was not able to create a link for the patcher.
This is the error that comes up when I try to use the Game Launcher.
Every time I have attempted to Launch the game, I keep getting the message "Unable to connect to Patch Server, Connection idle too long" This is after I log in and I get the Black screen with the "Cryptic" is large gold lettering. I then attempt to verify all files, usually takes 20 minutes and then attempt to relaunch. I did try to redownload the launcher exe file to reinstall and that did not work either.
Ever since the Season 6 update went live, my launcher works fine, launches the client, then the client crashes mid-load. No error messages, just Windows asking to close the program. I tried having the launcher force-verify the client files, and they came back fine. Is anyone else getting this problem since Season 6 went live?
