    That happens to me from time to time. For some reason the game does not launch. I usually close the game launcher through task manager (Ctrl-Alt-Delte) and restart without problems.

    If that does not work, clear your cache and try again.

    This program, though reasonably normal at times, seems to have a strong affinity to classes belonging to the Cat 2.0 program. Questerius 2.7 will break down on occasion, resulting in garbage and nonsense messages whenever it occurs. Usually a hard reboot or pulling the plug solves the problem when that happens.

    Finally got around to patching and now just waiting for it to finish so I can log in, but...

    "For the first time in a long time..."

    Which is it, the first time, or a long time? Both cannot be true.

    The first time? No, we had the ending to the Temporal War at Procyon 5 in TFO and Mission.

    A long time? Yes, it's been a long time since we had the ending to the Temporal War at Procyon 5 in TFO and Mission.

    I know, I'm nitpicking, but the game's still patching so I needed something to do. :smiley:

    Synonym for low tier company?

    This is a far as I can get, no Character Selection Screen. (Hope this works)
    view?usp=sharing

    Nope... Maybe this copied into a browser?

    Yes, worked for me. That is a far as I can get.

    New missions were mostly enjoyable but have somewhat underwhelming reward options.
    I'm not saying that there needed to be new items made for the rewards, but a couple extra choices would have been nice, drawn from the pool of readily available items, such as beam arrays, torpedo launchers and the like..

    I'm glad the finale is concluded in the regular story missions. :)
    The TFO part in the United blog sounded a bit like the story conclusion might be there.

    Yeah, the item reward for each is very... meh.

    (I have been doing the Alt/Control/Delete practically every time I have logged on.)
    Is there only 1 cache? Where do I find it?

    The proverbial house is still burning.

    I'm having the exact same reaction to this arc that I did to the Blog War: a decent start but then it ends in disaster. I'm beginning to think the reason the Klingons joined the Federation in the future is because their 25th century chancellors completely ran the Empire into the ground.

    2/10 for the arc gg cryptic

    The launchers uses the browser you use to launch so clearing the history from your browser should clear out the cache as well.

    It says: "Odds of winning depend on # of eligible entries received."

    So what are the odds? I guess 1 on a million or less?

    Why are the actual odds not communicated? In some countries it is illegal to not do so.

    For those that get the black screen of never ending loading, do a forced file verification. Open up options on the launch screen and you will see a check box to force verify, check it and let it check the files again. For some screwed up reason the monkeys they have programming now do not know how to do a proper update of files.

    no, unfortunately it didn't help.

    For me personally i started experiencing the black screens at startup after a windows update roughly a month ago so it might be related to some drivers, but i haven't been able to narrow it down.
    In case it is related to your browser, try setting a different browser as your main. It should not matter, but at some point it is a matter of eliminating potential causes.

    You meant to post this comment in the thread Perfect Spring Sale not in Welcome to House United. Also, the odds of winning depends on the number of eligible entries received. They cannot give you the exact odds since they have no clue how many people are going to submit entries until they get them. So they are not going to guesstimate or anything like that. They are not doing anything illegal. Just submit your entries and see if you can win the Razer laptop. Thanks. :)

    I understand from a marketing point of view linking to the new series, but using such awfully written characters from such an awful show written by people who hate the very IP they write for is just... saddening.

    Not to be over criticizing as usual but I found a few problems aside from missing npc's throughout the first city with that change when you finish the story. One thing is that the aide for J'mpok is still gainfully employed and is still working for him lol. Then it seems that while we resurrect/clone one warrior it seems that a 2nd clone has snuck in so now Woldan is alive again after being killed by the Iconian in the great hall. Oh also the romulans near the exchange have still not learned to sit properly on the bench and their lower legs and feet are buried still. Lastly though it appears there is some kind of secret room I've found that has like 5 or 6 dead bodies just laying on the floor.

    Did force verify a few times, no help at all.
    Thanks anyway.

    Update to todays update...

    Finally got to see my character selection screen and even managed to change to a different character, (the pro).
    Game is unplayable, flickers all over the place at about 3-4 per second, random blue blobs that are marked 'federation cruiser' (or whatever), game unplayable. EXTREMELY irritating. (some of the cons).

    NOTE: That 'flickering' was just when I was in space.

    This just sounds like your game data is corrupted, or your computer is dying.

    Have you completely deleting the game from your hard drive, and redownloading the whole thing?

    Or...you know, the game is bugged to hell and back. There are several thread open about people not being able to load the game...or having it crash...and even if they do get in, their weapons stop working. Nothing to do with somebody's computer dying. You and the Cryptic defense squad needs to get off that horse already.

    There may be several threads about those bugs but they are not affecting everyone. (I've been absolutely unaffected except by the DRB manual bug that I've been harping on for ten weeks now). And the description this guy is giving matches none of those bug threads anyway.

    And before you haul off on me... I am not the "Cryptic defense squad". But you're starting to become the irrational anti-Cryptic squad and that's just as bad. I will stand right here and applaud you for rational, truth-based attacks, but this one isn't that.

    That quote is literally communicating the odds to you, just in a different form: there's a fixed number of winners, so the odds depend on number of entries.
