Cipher Nemo, it looks like someone found the answer to the corrupt files and can't launch issues. The download zip file people are using Windows built in zip program. They need to use WinRAR.

Since we know better we didn't even consider it. Plus I download the CB .exe file. But I use WinRAR.

Nice find.

There might be other reasons as well, such as failing Internet connections that lose track of packet count/IDs.

Just thought I would also add this as I have helped several other people with it. I have reported it to the Devs but no reply Anyway this is just a copy of another post I made earlier.

Its was in response to people have weird artifacing with ATI cards making the game all but unplayable.
_________________________________


I have helped several people with a similar problem to yours. Try this and I expect it will work for most of you with ATI cards. I have even suggested it to the Devs but they have not even took the time to respond.

Anyway you first need to download ATI Tray tools http://www.guru3d.com/article/ati-tray-tools-/

Install the one that matches your OS ofc. Now when installed and running right click its tray icon and select 3D or Direct X 3d. Now select Settings.

Make sure AA/AAA/AF are all set to app controlled. I have never had a problem with AA and AAA forced with STO but some people do. So I would suggest setting it to App controlled for all.

Now heres the part that should help: From there select: Additional on the little Tabs.

Now look down to where it says: Geometry Instancing. If its unticked (Driver Defaults to Unticked) Tick it and press apply and ok. Now you can quit ATI tray tools if you like.

You never have to do this again as long as you don't install another driver.

Now fire up STO and see if the problems gone and I suspect it will.

I have never encountered any problem with Instancing on in any game. In fact some like STO and Gothic 3 rely on it. All it does is say you have a rock. Instead of loading 50 instances of it into your GFX memory it just loads the 1 because if said rock is the same in those 50 instances then whats the point of loading it in 50 times when it can be cloned from the 1 loaded rock Basically it.

Not all games use it but there absolutely no adverse effects from leaving it enabled. If I disable it in STO or Gothic 3 then those games are simply unplayable because of crazy artifacing.

Hope this helps and please try it. Only takes 5 mins tops to try.

Thanks! I've noted this and linked to your post inside of that artifacting item. That way if you ever want to update the process or make changes to your post, it will be there. I do not own an ATI card, so I won't be able to test or update this possible solution.

CB.exe? is this the answer for those of us with launcher issues? If so - where does one get it?

I have no idea what you're talking about. There is no "CB.exe" file in your installed STO files.
