  • Same issue here, I was playing fine on Monday; Tuesday, the launcher will not even load the game. Tried computer reboot, force verify, safe mode, watched the launcher update itself, still no joy. Running Win 10 Pro 64-bit. I expected some bugs for a major new release, but it's never been this bad in 7+ years. No response…
  • Well, I did not have this problem until today, the first day of the Anniversary, when the launcher update crashed my comp right to blue screen, followed by repeated crashes of the launcher, despite Force Verify. Sent in a ticket; I can only hope there is an emergency maintenance patch quickly... -_-
  • This; except in my case, I proposed that there be some sort of 'loyalty' or 'longevity' reward for completing multiple server events, along the lines of preserving the 'exclusivity' that Cryptic had favored for long-time players. Their solution now expressed in the 3-event reward packs now a regular part of the event…
  • I would not assume that the particles still on the exchange (or in the bot's banks) will be tradeable after the event starts; I'm not going to take any chances with the ones in fleet bank storage, either. Best bet is to get any leftover traces into account or personal banks, and use them up while we can. :*
  • It would have been nice to get some advance notice, even the in-game warnings, but since this didn't happen, I can see why people are fumed. If it results in a reduction/elimination of the radical rubber-banding (even seeing it in cutscenes now), then I don't mind, but again, a description of the bug fixes would also be…
  • So, since the 11/12 patch, I'm consistently having these issues (in addition to all the others Cryptic has failed to fix): New BOff's are invisible in the announcement pop-up, all Bridge Invites are broken, players invited to a multi-level fleet holding are limited to the initial level and can't even be invited to another…
  • If the hair physics are anything like those for capes, scarves, etc, then out 'toons' hair will be perennially standing on end, or flapping in a hurricane wind...
  • Lag is the worst now I have seen it in the 5 years on Holodeck. Lag even in the mini-games, up to 2 minutes just to load a map, and then consecutive map-loading times like this, not even being able to cross the Academy grounds in less that a minute, because my 'toon in being snapped back several times, even being snapped…
  • I would be interested in buying costumes that can actually be used, instead of finding out after Cryptic has taken my money that this costume cannot be used by my faction character. -_- If a costume is species- or alliance-restricted, why is there no notification, or indication that such a restriction exists? I recently…
  • I'll wait until the Buran is in the store, or maybe the Negh'Tev, since there are relatively fewer KDF ships...
  • It would give us something to do around ESD when we're waiting out another AFK penalty...otherwise...no.
  • Or sometimes the problem really is that the DPS'ers are so overpowered that they should be doing Elite TFO's, instead of punishing those who are working their way up. I've never parsed my DPS, nor do I care to, but as long as I'm not stuck in a TFO with one or more of these DPS-maxed freak ships, I can normally do quite…
  • Aahhh...Thanks for clearing that up...nothing was mentioned about the next two FTFO's, except that somehow, it all rolls up in the fall of 2019. Apparently they are making things up as they go, with no real planning. So Cryptic gives us a cookie for each FTFO to keep us interested, and try to make the game "sticky" with an…
  • How are we going to get 3000 tokens in 21 days, if the 1st weekend only allows 400, and the next 17 days x 50 yield another 850? That's not even half the number supposedly required, as opposed to the 14-day payout normally seen in a 3-week event...
  • It's not just Fed characters; any 'canon' race has the same limitation, except for the feature sliders. Aliens allied with either faction have the height limited to 7', not including the slider adjustment...
  • I was super glad to discover that this was the reason so many alts disappeared from our rosters; I thought initially it was something I had done inadvertently! Apparently a few of our 'altoholic' fleeties were responsible for most of the fallout, but at least they are still recorded on the Leader Boards, so it's no mystery…
  • Bought the Collector's Edition years ago, and never had a good reason to use Arc. I have only 1 game on Steam, and I loathe it...even though I had hoped it would become my favorite. :s
  • I wasn't implying that the number of posts in this thread constitutes anything like a majority (hence, VOCAL percentage), just that as in electoral politics, a single irate constituent realistically represents a much larger number of those who were too cheesed off to even verbalize their dissatisfaction. I have no…
  • Wow, that's a lot (17 pages now ^^) of commentary on a single decision in just a few days; clearly Cryptic's vision for their core values does not match up with a vocal percentage of the player base. If they have had such a conflict assigning personnel to managing code issues, maybe they should have looked at the Foundry…
  • Exactly THIS! No one has a "right" to get maximum rewards out of every TFO, just because they put in more planning, high-end gear, buffs, whatever. If you want to have max rewards every time, do it with your DPS'er fanboys and leave the public alone. The TFO's are completed by TEAMS; this implies that not every one is in…
  • Thanks for the tips...now back to the rep store ^^ .
  • I just got the Iconian Resistance armor, but I can find no way to make it visible. If I select "Iconian Resistance Suit" in the tailor, the tailor defaults to Jem'Hadar armor. I can find no combination of Iconian anything that does not switch to Jem'Hadar, and then it's grayed out, so there are no other options. How then…
  • I can't remember a time when there were more than 2 players in the Tzenkethi Battlezone when I arrived; I just use it as a shortcut to Dranuur until my fleets get the TW conduit done. Pretty much useless, otherwise, and the Badlands aren't much better... :-|
  • I think the challenge is more about having something in the Endeavor box that I care about playing. Some of the time, the Endeavor mission dovetails perfectly with something my 'toon needed to do anyway, so I can just run the episode/TFO/patrol I had already planned, and the game drops me some extra loot; win/win. Even…
  • Considering that there is more content in the Foundry than STO itself, the Dev's ought to be leveraging this as a marketing tool, and an end-game feature! It wouldn't be so hard to make it easier to access the Foundry archives, and probably even recruit a few Foundry authors to cull broken/obsolete/poor quality missions so…
  • After I reinstalled Win 7 Pro 64-bit, for some reason the system will not allow me Admin permissions for some functions, despite the fact that my one account is listed as an Admin account. So, when I try to uncheck the "Read Only" boxes, they immediately revert back, and I also cannot run CHKDSK. So, I went back to a…
  • Tried running STO as Admin. - no result Tried reinstalling Win 7 Pro 64-bit OS - no result Tried running STO in Win 7 compatibility mode - no result Submitted error code (142777685) info to Support, no answer yet Result - no STO, no more purchase of ZEN (I'm a LTS with literally $1000's spent in-game); STO quit me, not the…
  • Sector-space lag is a combination of 'net traffic and server load, not necessarily solved by graphics upgrade. More & faser gfx memory is a help for the rest of the game, though, and I agree this time that NVidia rocks the game graphics...
  • Any bugfix that requires re-installing the OS is unacceptable. It just points out how poorly the patch was planned & executed. Over 1000 tickets this month so far, and counting, no response on mine yet...
