I love/hate this game

I've been wanting to play this game so badly but, it seems like all of Crypitic games won't work for me and I hate it because I really like Star Trek and It won't even attempt to load the characters for me

    I know some people have reported issues using DirectX 11, instead of 9. There is a fix for it floating around the forums somewhere, but I do not recall what it is.

    yes, best to run it on DX9, (even the devs run it on DX9, or at least one of them)

    I love/hate tribbles. They all taste so good, but they reproduce like pests!
    Another faction is more than likely to be destructive to the game rather than helping. this game doesn't even have 3 healthy factions, it has one healthy faction, one neglected faction, and one neglected HALF faction.

    For the love of tribble kebab, NO MORE FACTIONS until they can support what we ALREADY HAVE.
    Characters:

    Captain Klein of the U.S.S. Yggdrasil (Liza)
    Captain Eon of the U.S.S. Heinlein (Sylvi)
    Riov t'Velle, Commander of the R.R.W. Legend (Ryna)

    Best thing to do is start in safe mode, that's what I have to do then ramp up the settings when I get into game.

    Okay great now it loads my character but, I can't play

    Can't play is pretty vague.

    Is there an error that occurs?
    Are you running other things in the background that might be bogging your system down greatly?
    Have you tried loading the game in safemode and doing a verify files?
    Have you using Steam(some have less issues there)?
    Have you tried checking to make sure your computer is actually reaching the servers (tracert patchserver.crypticstudios.com)?
    Have you tried a repair or re-install of the game?
    have you tried a repair or re-install of DX?

    These are questions that can aid in getting you up and going. Because right now it seems that you are basing off your opinion on the fact that something with your rig is preventing you specifically from playing.

    this game is possible the best star trek game ever created.
    i have been playing this game for over a year and could never leave a negative comment about it,

    however scince i finished the game for my main character i have been going back to use my older ships such as the constitution and NX classes only to find that they are not powerful enough to be used for anything other than a taxi service between DS9 and Earth space Dock. this is because they are not capable of fighting ships from previous levels that have increated in difficulty as you level up.
    scince the update came out that changed the deep space encounter missions i have not been able to use any of my smaller ships without creating a new character all the time.

    That is just obsession, when you cant see anything else that positive things. I mean, sure you can like this game but.. trust me lol, if you were "normal" you will find A LOT of negative things about this game lol. A lot lot lot lot... for start, it is not even 50% star trek anymore.

    A lot of reasonable people like this game but they are honest, and they will never say "this is the best star trek game ever created" because that is so false that is ridiculous lolz. Fine, get rid of all the bugs, lag, broken content, bad designs, crappy support management and etc, etc, and yes, it will be probably one of the best star trek games ever created. Meanwhile, it is not.

    Why people cant express their opinions??? I mean, its incredible. People can say millions of positive things about this game, but when someone says something negative, there you are , jumping frogs with the typical and non constructive "dont play go away".

    Lol, its actually funny xD.

    It is not the negativity expressed that is the issue, it is the petulant child thing of "I'll take my ball and go home" that is stated.

    Please post your CPU, and the type/speed of your memory. My guess is that the CPU is the bottleneck.

    I have no issues running this game. here are my PC Specs:

    AMD FX-8350 Eight-Core 4GHz AM3+ Processor

    ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 AM3+ Motherboard

    EVGA GeForce GTX 660 "Superclocked" edition

    Corsair Vengeance memory - 16GB DDR3 PC3-12800, 1600MHz

    Coolmax ZU-800B 800W Power Supply

    Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium

    If you don't know what kind of RAM you have, here are some instructions I found for finding out:
    http://www.geek.com/chips/geek-basics-what-type-of-ram-do-i-have-in-my-computer-1465999/
    If you need to resort to using a software tool to find out, another one I've often seen recommended in computer magazines is the one at Crucial.com.

    CPU information is easy, at least: from your Start menu (if you have one - I can't remember which Windows version it is that doesn't have one), select Accessories, then System Tools, then System Information and there should be an entry for "Processor" on the first page. I don't know why it doesn't do the same for RAM, it would be handy.
  • tamujiintamujiin Member Posts: 321 Arc User
    I use Dx 11, on a wal-mart special computer with integrated intel graphics card, 8gb of Ram no issues. On thing to do, after installing the game, is force verify your files. Do to cryptics talents, ( cough, no offense ) sometimes you need to do that after an install for everything to work up to speed.

    My ancient Cumputer still run this game, it is now old and making a lot of noise,
    Proably it will run if you use old stuffs.
    And best star trek games: Klingon Academy, The Birth of the Federation, Star trek:Armada.
    This mmorpg... I like the people who play it, cant find any other place like it.
    But I dont like how it is being runned
    Couple years back it was awsome
    It was nice untill they start to follow jj trek
    which basicly is recycle old stuffs
    it feels good if they work it out fine
    but very disturbing if it fails
    blehhh like most part of the iconian war
    should have at least copy Teal'c
    and an emote -> "Get to da chappa aye"
    and general O'neil ... oh wait he is on Kobali lol
    That part was very good.

    All I really got out of this was that your older machine runs the game well, and you have issues with the Star Trek reboot. Other than that I just have to ask "hunh?".

    It makes perfect sense to me. Yes, the Iconian War storyline does have a very Stargate feel to it indeed... :D Not sure what you're saying the game is taking from the reboot, though? Which bits do you mean ?
