    I am still anxious to get the funds for a better card to handle my games on this machine. The GTX 680's newest drivers used to handle STO just fine but now I get these errors too. Tribble is just fine but Holo won't let me on. I have a Titan on my other PC, but I don't want to move it to my gaming PC because I need the other PC for videography and rendering.

    Earlier in this thread, someone guided me to attempt to uninstall my current driver to roll back to a Windows default, but apparently Windows update just slaps the newest driver right in there, so no joy.

    I miss the days when you used to be able to go to Nvidia and get older drivers . . .

    EDIT - Currently using GeForce R331.82 11/19/2013

    My ticket number is consistently 14178636.

    if it works with windows default, then just simply disable windows update

    if not there is always

    Aye I did try that. I had 20 driver updates, but nothing came up at all for graphics. Most of it was having to do with my PCI-IDE controller. By the way - if anyone else tries that program also, do NOT forget the cardinal rule of all installers - ALWAYS go "Custom" . . . otherwise it will try to install toolbars and other stuff on your PC and change your internet browsing settings.

    I also tried Tribble again and the graphics looked very pixellated, like I was running a REALLY old graphics card or none at all, and all settings were maxed. So I changed from DX9 to DX11 and now cannot access tribble any more.

    Back to Final Fantasy XIV for a bit I guess. I have a Scholar there that needs attention anyway :) I am way too addicted to Star Trek and this is the break I needed. Glass half full XD

    OH! on the Windows bit . . . I forced windows to disconnect from the net then forced a basic driver without windows checking online for the install . . . no joy.

    However i did just install the game on a small netbook, which of course is way below minimum requirements for the game (not a netbook in the world could meet an MMO game's requirements LOL) . . . the game runs and looks great, but not going to play on that small screen ROFL.

    like i said to another the foundation of the game is the same so if it worked before it should work again (at least on old parts of the game)

    looks like you will just have to wait on criptic. also most notebooks have the option for external connections. put it on tv?.

    i would just LOVE to know what cryptic actually did to cause this monumental fail.

    I got back in

    Swapped my radeon graphics card for a nvidea card out of my old pc.

    when I started up launcher to try, same old authentication question then click engage.

    I had a error window pop up about having an old graphics card with the option to adjust my graphic settings or run default settings, chose default and it worked:D.

    Anyone with a spare graphics card should try it.

    Unfortunately, that still leaves those of us with laptops - and thus integrated video cards - on the beach with pail and bucket.

    Back in October, I actually went down to the local computer shop - great guys, been using them for my computer repairs and such for almost fifteen years or so, actually bought my first computer there, custom job - and got informed that the parts and labor cost to change video cards on a laptop... it's more advantageous just to buy a new one.

    You know, now that I'm thinking about it, I price checked Best Buy a while back on a new laptop, maybe I should just go see what it would cost to have my local guys build me one...

    its no guarantee that it will work, some of the guys locked out have duel graphics cards and others 1 gb and above. some with our issue got in by downgrading to an old card they had lying around. its all about comparability (unfortunately)

    Boy... It is almost 6:45 in the morning here and I still haven't slept.

    I think I am at this stage where I say that Fishstic should better think about some great offers towards their fanbase as soon as this ridiculous nightmare is over.

    Never saw a company like this before that refuses so badly to interact with its customers.

    Anyways, up late myself watching vids before I zonk for work tomorrow.

    REason we have not heard anything since Friday is probably because nothing new is known yet. Hopefully we get something tomorrow while I am out and a patch rolled out in Tribble for testing with a quick patch Tuesday for the rest of the 18897741 club.

    Funny that; people always want to talk about "Klingons are like Samurai or Knights" because of the whole 'honor code', I've always seen them as closer to Vikings or Native American warriors.

    Cloaking devices, for example. "Cloaking Devices aren't Klingon! There's no honor in sneaking around and not battling your enemy face-to-face!" some people claim... Personally, however, I seem to recall that there were some Native American tribes where the greatest honor a warrior could gain would be by proving that they could enter an enemy tribe's camp or villiage, take something of value (chief's daughter, for instance) and make their escape - all without being seen and caught.

    norce people would also use stealth, they would wait for fog, or create smoke.
    and norse had a deep sense of honour, they would tell storys by song like Beowulf, they also had similar spiritual beliefs like Valhalla, and the barge of dammed soals

    as for Klingons, its a predatory thing. being able to sneak up to your pray

    beleve it or not the romans and the norse (vikings) were scared stiff of some of those villages.

    the isle of thanet (i used to live there) the romans called it the isle of death

    (thano'tos latin for death)

    they were afraid because rowboats would row themselves from the mainland to thanet, and back again

    and both believed it was the souls of the dead rowing across to hadies/norse hell.

    the romans apparently were also scared because it was the one place they couldn't find snakes, so they thought some powerful beast was eating them all

    I knew that the Romans did have such No-Go places but didn't know it from the Norse.
    To my shame, I actually never cared about Norse mythology :(

    you probably know more than you think

    for example if you have watched thor you probly know of asguard. also the film beowolf.

    alot of the stuff you think is greek is probably norse.

    the norse may have been afraid of an place, but that didnt mean that some brave man of legend hasnt been/wont go there
