Got into the game when the server came back up. Managed to finish a mission and get my promotion to Lt Commander (YAY!) and with it my new ship. Juggled some equipment, headed out to a mission in my shiney new ship and BAM...long load followed by a crash and now stuck at Retrieving Chatacter List. Bloody lovely.
I am also stuck at the Retrieving list of characters... I got booted from the game at 3pm ct this afternoon and I am now trying to get back in for the first time since then (7pm ct) and I am not getting pass this screen.
Aye, I'm stuck on that screen too. I walked away from it, went next door for some snack, came back and it was still on that screen. I had to minimize (you do know you can minimize it if you hover your mouse in the top right corner don't you?) and had to go into Task Manager to get close it out. Maybe let us press Escape to cancel the load and take us back to the login screen or something? Just an idea....
2nd login at Retrieving Character List going on 5 minutes now. 1st attempt logged in selected character entered mission zone in Sector Space and went to a loading screen for about 15 minutes (used task manager to kil application).
Think I may just play Mass Effect 2 instead til Beta is over.
Well I guess a Headstart is all about getting whats coming before everyone else, and we seem to be getting it.
Same thing here...finally was able to make it through the starbase 24 quest(after the kazillionth try due to crashing) then apon beaming up lost connection to server....tried loging back in.....u know the rest
