Screen goes Black for about 1 to 2 seconds then drops to a window with black in it and nothing eles. so i go to task manager and it says ( Not Responding ). so i click on game at bottom and it givea a Cmd screen and a Error ( Unable to find required game data files . if this problem persist reinstalling app may fix it.
CmD screen shows
Perloading DDLs..Done (0.01)
And that as far as i can get. so here whats im running to help fig this out
This is EXACTLY what is happening to me as well! Same message.
Im having same problem, ive seen 1 person say that a OS reinstall fixes it, but im still getting up the nerve to reinstall my OS.
reinstall the OS? Are you serious? I have the same problem here. It worked fine till 8 pm last night (eastern time). The launcher now loads minimized to the toolbar, no way to interact with it whatsoever.
I had the same issue, but a reinstall of STO did not solve it. I found the following...
100120 03:37:41 1 MasterControlProgram: OLE failed to initialize: 1
100120 03:37:41 2 MasterControlProgram: Shutting down from fatal error "OLE failed to initialize: 1"
I tracked it down to the parental control software Net Nanny by Content Watch. Everything started working after I uninstalled the software. The launcher would still not run when the Net Nanny was only disabled. I even put the launcher in as an application exception to the parental contol, but still the launcher crashed each time. This is a problem since I need the parental controls for my kids.
Yep I'm having problems too, I downloaded the game from Steam since it's free to play and the game looked good. Got stuck flying the ship, the game cut out so I quit thinking it was my connection since my internet does that from time to time, now everytime I try and start the game I get this message "THIS GAME IS CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE" is there a patch incoming or is the game broken or have I done something wrong? That statement alone doesn't really help. AT ALL.
