    Nice fixes. I wonder if there's anything coming Thursday besides the Legendary Dreadnaught (I hope the Klingon equivalent, the Assaultcruiser, is going to be released for the KDF if/when they finally get their Legendary Bundle).

    I admit I'm surprised that we're getting a patch on Wednesday.

    Thanks for the fixes, Cryptic! Also, surprised the patch was done on a Wednesday and not Thursday.

    Resolved an issue that was causing incompatibility issues with DirectX 10.

    I'm sure those affected will be relieved.

    Resolved an issue that caused the Advanced Phasers and Disruptors to not gain additional bonuses for having more than one equipped at a time. The maximum bonus is once again reached with 6 equipped. Resolved an issue that prevented the Risian Kit Frame from gaining a bonus for more than one Summer kit module equipped. The maximum bonus is once again reached with 3 equipped.

    Yahoo & well done, Cryptic, sooner than I expected.

    The other fixes are welcomed & appreciated too.

    Thank you for fixing the Advanced Phasers/Disruptors.

    Those were expensive. :lol:

    Can we please get the X-Upgrade tokens added back to the Phoenix store, the free daily Phoenix pack added back, and the event extended for all of us who could not play during this DirectX bug? It would be a great thing for the player community and for those who missed it due to the bug.

    Various costume issues resolved on Reman Males:
    My Reman females still go around with invisible limbs on endless costumes, and that was reported in detail years ago on the bug forums and in-game bug reporting.
    Cryptic: Make an option to turn off screen flashing and strobing effects!

    16:00 PM - 19:30 PM why don't you do the update around 10 UTC or 11UTC

    Firstly it is 14:00 - 16.30 UTC or 3 pm - 5.30 pm as it has always been. Secondly, they can't do it at a time that pleases everyone. So just let it go

    Please read the FCT 2.0 thread in General Discussion for an explanation why they do maintenance at certain times.

    Do a force verify then try. Maybe in safe mode first

    Before you do a force verify as suggested below. Turn off On Demand Patching in the Options section of the Star Trek Online Launcher, turn on Force Verify, click Save, let it patch, and see if that helps with your problem.

    It seems, the new Legendary Galaxy is bugged. It has different seating as adversied in the webpage and in the Store.
    In the Stopre (and on the page), it says, it has an LtC Universal/Command seatling, and in the game, it has a LtC Engineer/Command seating.
    Not good, can we have a fast fix for it, please?
  • lordmalak1lordmalak1 Member Posts: 4,623 Arc User
    YAY !
    So will the events be extended 2 weeks or you gonna credit the players with the directX issue with 2 weeks of progress ?

    Because they are based in the Western US. The timeslot they use is at the beginning of normal business hours for businesses in that region. (starting at around 7AM California time).

    I didn't even know there were costume issues for Reman males, apart from no option to go shirtless on Risa.

    If they are going to fix costime bugs for Reman males, why not fix the much more prominant disappearing limbs bug at the same time? As is, it just feels like a slap in the face that they aren't even acknowledging the Reman female bugs in these patch notes.

    Resolved an issue that was causing incompatibility issues with DirectX 10.

    Sadly , the new fix didn't help .
    Running DirectX Version: DirectX 11 .

    Have you turned off On Demand Patching in the Options section of the launcher, turned on Force Verify, let it patch, and see if it works then?

    All that and much more (including several game installs + install through Epic Games) , to the point where the Cryptic Support threw up their hands and ... essentially told me to cross my fingers:

    At this point I'm contemplating a fresh Windows 7 install, despite the hassle .

    Thank you fixing the DirectX issue, I am now able to log in via Steam.

    I researched this issue and found that Epic games is the reason for these problems. Any game that collaborates with them ends up having this issue because its broken bloatware. Essentially they are a TRIBBLED middle man used for nickel and dime virtual item scams. I'm pretty sure that Cryptic and/or PWE would have just rolled this thing back but it probably violated whatever contract or agreement they had with them if they did so.
