Suddenly, the voices of the online characters (you know, the computer-generated ones in the game) aren't talking. I see the text of their dialog, but not their voices. All other sound is normal, and all the sound settings are at their defaults.
This was working fine for a while, and suddenly, they went mute. I've downloaded the latest patches. Mac OS 10.8.5.
Every time I log into STO the game either crashes back to my desktop or freezes entirely during the loading screen. I thought Cryptic fixed this problem
Same problem here. I have tried multiple times to log in and play. If I'm lucky enough to get to a screen where the character is in a mission it eventually freezes up. Otherwise it either crashes before character selection or after I have selected one. I've force quit multiple times and restarted my Mac a few times as well.
Got a response from Tech Support, it seems to have fixed my iMac, haven't tried the Macbook Pro yet. Here's their response that seems to have worked:
This might be result that the game is not sync with the server
Verify your game files by going into Options in the game launcher, and checking the Force-Verify box, then let that complete.
You can also try running in safe mode. To do this, go to Options in the game launcher, and check the Safe Mode box. Also make sure your video drivers are fully updated.
I ran around in safe mode for a few minutes, it's totally useless for combat but OK for admin stuff. Then I rebooted in fullscreen and the game worked OK, then I turned anti-alising back on and it still works OK.

With both computers I can get to the character selection screen just fine. When I choose a character and enter the game I either get a crash to desktop or the game freezes within a few seconds and I have to Force-Quit.
These 2 Mac computers have very little in common so I don't think it's anything on my end.
Have any Mac users noticed that the sound only comes out of one speaker?
Granted, I'm running through an audio interface, so it could be part of the issue... but, it seems like it shouldn't be that way. Don't have any issues with any other program, either (I do audio editing on my late 2013 27-inch iMac).
