    If the fix passes internal testing and makes it to Tribble tomorrow, and then works for players crashing and doesn't cause other issues, it should go to Holodeck in the next patch. We already patched Holodeck this week (today) due to the Holiday, so we're looking at next week at the earliest. Not the best news, but I at least wanted to let you know so you didn't get your hopes up.

    Cheers,

    Brandon =/\=

    Next week? At the earliest?

    Seriously?

    Before I start Bran the following fan rage is not aimed at you. Its aimed at the incompetent coders and I'd appreciate if you'd pass it on with gusto (maybe some music as well, like

    So just to be clear, coders, you failed to read the massive posts on tribble in the month preceding launch. You have failed to fix both 25664664 and 18897741 for 16 days, costing us 16 days of dil earnings, rep earnings, fleet donations, countless wasted hours and most crucially 200 irreplaceable lobi.

    Next week at the earliest means we can kiss goodbye to that ship sale. Even worse than missing the master key sale.

    I understand you want to be with your families over your holiday. When is it anyway (im british so dont know). 2 days intensive (and I mean intensive) tribble testing followed by uploading it to holodeck and giving it some more testy goodness. Three days at most assuming it works.

    I've had to work through important holidays through no fault of my own before for dirt pay, but thats because life isnt always fair and I couldnt afford to lose those jobs. This bug and the losses we've already incurred are due to your breathtaking incompetence so please get a grip.

    NOTE: I just updated Windows 7 with the new updates and they did NOT work. I don't know it's working for him with the launcher but I can verify that the updates did not fix the launcher problems.
    possibilities are a thing of hope, sometimes it drives us toward something better

    All patched up, holodeck hangs until the process is killed, Tribble crashes with error 18897741, as per usual. The fix is not yet in, as we all know. so we continue to wait.

    And as this is the 27th, no Tribble for most of us, sad days ahead.

    For us LTS this is something we have no choice but to live with, for the monthly subscribers, this is a real inconvenience as they are now 16 days without access to a game they are paying for access to on a monthly basis.

    16 Days with no Star Trek Online
    16 Days and still more
    The Devs knock one error
    and some more appear
    16+ days with no game on the wall

    (sigh) my creative rhymer is kinda broken, maybe I'll parody 'No Air' next.

    Maybe I'll post a Youtube parody of a hit song about ST:O being somewhat broken, maybe that might get some attention?

    Tribble, no tribble, lots of troubles, still no tribble. I've written about 10,000 words of my novel in the downtime - so I'm a least trying to stay productive, but this truly sucks.

    it's just a game and we're just addicted to this game and even though we had so much to lose, they will not give us anything as compensation .... like I said, it's just a game:(

    I mean no disrespect when I say this, but that's not entirely true. A lot of us have shelled out cold hard cash for gold subscription, lifetime subscription or microtransactions eg ships.

    We have paid for a service we have not been receiving for more than two weeks through no fault of our own. Someone paying for a months sub has now effectively been robbed of more than ?5 in UK money, not to speak of missing out on a number of sales and rewards.

    Most critical amongst these is the lost lobi and the fact that most of us will now miss out on the ship sale.

    They also failed to extend the dyson tribble event for thosse still stuck, even though it would have cost them abolutely NOTHING since it was never going to go on sale anyway.

    Whilst it is just a game we're still being ripped off without the slightest sign of a meaningful apology, compensation or even extending events/sales so we dont miss out.

    It doesnt even make sense not to extend those sales since they are losing our custom by not letting us buy. Do they really think we'd be happy to pay full price having been locked out for more than two weeks?

    In a lot of ways I'm lucky. I come from a family of rabid trek fans where both my father and sister are avid STOers. They can get in the game and my sis was kind enough to log in for me to pick up the Excelsior on sale and between them they've done about five days lobi for me.

    But at the end of the day Im still without the dyson tribble, I've still missed out on the master key sale, over 100 lobi down and I've been unable to augment my ourchased zen by dil grinding (and will thus miss out on being able to purchase another ship on sale, probably the D'Dex).

    And as I said before, I'm less affected by this than most.

    Now, that's really odd.

    Nice that this worked for you.

    Though the way it came over you is a little... weird. They're all bashing Cryptic for their mishaps, but apparently, everyone got used to MS messing up their updates... ;)

    Didn't see these updates, yet...

    And I'm not sure if it wasn't the IE update, as at least the launcher seems to be based on IE in some way.

    EDIT: Found the .net update. Wondering why I didn't get a notification...

    EDIT 2: Didn't work for me.
    Only got the .Net Framework update, here, no IE 11 (think that one's already installed - I don't use it, but some programs ignore the preferences and load their link via IE, thus I keep it updated) and no security update.
    There only was an optional bing desktop installation I didn't load...

    yeah that stupid Bing bit is persistent as all hell. I hide it and they always force it to refresh. They are determined I am going to install it and I refuse to. This computer has never had a toolbar and I'll be bloody damned if it ever will.

    I have a feeling it is because of the side effect it had on my PC. it killed EVERYTHING - settings - profiles - it made my Windows as if I just installed it. It made me SO glad I keep my docs, pics, music, programs, etc. on other drives and keep Windows isolated. One of the things it killed were my preferences for STO. When i did get back into the game, all settigns were reverted to default. I had to reset everything as if i just installed STO.

    I am at work now, but when i get home this evening I plan to attempt to do a system restore. If that doesn;t work i may reinstall Windows. That's the bugger - the updates jacked up my Windows beyond belief but fixed STO . . . go figure . . .

    Admittedly I am one of the defenders of this game. Most of you have seen me come in on Cryptic's defense on a lot of issues. But in this case, I do have to concur that I was about to take advantage of the LTS sale . . . however having not been able to access the game and seeing no fix coming before the sale ends has indeed stopped me from this purchase. Yes, I know a whacked out update install somehow fixed my game for me, but i am NOT about to leave my Windows a mess to play a single game. I am fixing my Windows somehow tonight, and if that means losing access to STO again then so be it. However if i fix Windows and the game still works, I may consider getting the LTS - but that will not be a consideration for me until I know that I can have the game AND an operating system as well.

    *waits somewhat eagerly for the update to load.*

    *collects his mind prior to hit "engage"*

    *watches the loading bar load about 105%...*

    *is in the game, but due to the windowed setting has his HUD messed up a little; will switch to fullscreen mode, hopes it will work without crashing*

    Though, this seem to be my usual settings - running smooth atm...

    Will come back later to report.

    Oh the Tribble server is just as big as the regular server. I have enough space for it, but I do not want it on my computer. I will likely just wait till they released the patch officially. If it gets rid of the 188 error code for you guys then it should hopefully for me.

    ok tribble server, first you nee to open the launcher, and on the top right of the launcher window you will see "options" click it

    another window will open with a series of tick boxes. make sure the "show tray icon" box is ticked.

    and fast start isnt

    save, then restart the launcher

    now you will find to the bottom left above the loading bar you will have 2 options, one of them is tribble. click on it,

    then go have a cuppa while it downloads


    Enjoy:cool:

    Hi Captains,

    Good news! The resolution mentioned above is now available for testing on Tribble! Notes: http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/showthread.php?t=934471

    I am in SoCal now with limited forum access, so I'll try and check back later and hope to see everyone with 18897741 post that the fix has worked for them. Thanks again for all your patience!

    Cheers,

    Brandon =/\=

    I do agree.. Maybe if we are fortunate brandon will suggest an emergency maitenance sometime this weekend.. because i have noticed.. the Lobi event thats going on right now ends on the day we get back into holodeck. we also missed our chance for the tribble..
