I just downloaded this game yesterday and I don't know if my problem is related to all that is going on or just some kind of setting I need to switch on my computer. Can anybody help me?
When I try to start the game a white box comes up and say "loading please wait". The Star Trek Online launcher then appears. I can see the Earn Free Starships advertisement and the logon box, however, another small black box comes up on top of this and says "loading". There is no download bar, the program seems to be using no internet or processing power. I can not click on the username or password box because the smaller black loading box is in the way. I am on windows 8.
Anybody know what's up with this? Is there some setting I need to mess with to get it to load?
severe lag, server not responding up to 3 minutes between map changes, even in the new episode, now the server just crashed on me just before i could complete the new mission for our anniversary ships.
Nice way to kick of the 3RD year anniversary. Break everything.
First 3 mins i log in i get a server respond and i did not even load in to esd yet.
A lot of people will experience this, it's because Cryptic/PWO haven't had the foresight to upgrade/change the servers, so they're buckling under the weight of thousands of people attempting to log in and play.
Personally, if I had the time, I'd wait for the load to go down (i.e. when european players go to sleep/whatever) for a... smoother experience.
