I had the same problem. Close STO in task manager and restart the client. Enter your password and look for the small options link in the top left corner of the patching screen. This allows you to check the box and load into safe mode.
Safe mode looks like it just sets all settings to lowest and loads STO in windows mode, but it got me into the Sol system after 30 min loading screens. Hope this helps.
me too. cant enter sol system. stuck in stupid warp screen. hope they fix this soon
Has no one from Cryptic acknowledged this issue......... I cant play the game because the SOl System won't load. I keep closing the game via task manager and then logging back in. I Managed to get it to load once. Thought maybe I was over the hump and the issue was fixed. Then the next time I returned to Sol after a mission BAM!!!!!! I was stuck at the loading screen. Tried about 10 times to get it to load and still nothing. PLEASE FIX THIS ISSUE SO WE CAN PLAY THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!
