  • I agree fully. I have plenty of money to spend if Cryptic wants to allow me to have such a feature.
  • Unfortunately, only half of my post posted. I had tacked on a suggestion of giving players sliders like other MMO games have, so that the individual player can choose the level of detail they want to see. I think they have such a system in FFXIV. My emphasis was there is nothing wrong with the effects that everyone need…
  • Yup. Definitely better looking than the old effects. There's a lot of old legacy effects from original skills in the game I'd love to see get an overhaul as well to bring them up to current graphics standards :)
  • There is nothing at all wrong with visual spam. It's nice to see the skills being used doing something. And they do not effect performance at all so it's not a bad thing at all. That aside I love the new explosions. Thy are much more appealing to look at, especially when taking out swarmers, etc. in large groups.
  • Somone please correct me if I'm wrong, but the limited time is just for making the purchases I believe. Once you have a legit code, it should work no matter when you put it into the system. But I agree, dev confirmation would be nice.
  • Awesome :) Glad you found it :)
  • To each their own, but I'm a truck driver who barely gets time to game due to being on the road a lot. That's casual, period. Those of you who spend 24/7 in the game and go apesh*t every time the server goes down for 5 minutes are the ones who aren't casual. LOL. But those of us who work for a living and don't eat, live,…
  • Stupid question, but ... did you reboot the game? I gifted this to a friend last night and he claimed the stuff while the game was open, but he had to reboot the game for the items to appear in the z-store. Also, I believe before anything appears anywhere else, you need to visit the promotions tab and claim the tiers…
  • From what I am encountering, it must be THOSE hips. If the ship listed is just a variant of a Legendary ship you have, it will NOT work.
  • Not a bad price. Going to upgrade all my characters today. I am a casual player, though, and only have 12 characters, so for me the price is well within reason.
  • Same. Both codes worked flawlessly. You have to go to the Arc Games page to redeem. Do NOT try to redeem via Steam. keepcalmchiveon already made a link above and that is the one you need. I just wish I could purchase tier 2 multiple times and get the Lobi and some upgrade bits, but, alas, we are limited to 1 only.
  • I buy all Legendary ships anyway and consider any items in the pack to be mere bonuses. Everything in STO is affordable compared to some other games that have run me off due to pricing. I can name another game where the prices are aimed at the crazy wealthy and not normal gamers. I would not object to Cryptic making single…
  • That happens to me randomly. Tonight, though, had it take it a step further. Defera Ground - I actually complete the game and get traces, but my quest for Q won't update. Since tou have to do this game every day during the event, that means no ship for me this year. But yeah ... on Defera especially I get that whole split…
  • I am so glad to see others out there playing MMO games as they SHOULD be played - on widecreen setups :) As for the graphics issue, I had these blurries as well, then all I did was turn my max resolution up in my game menu - everything has been crisp and clear since. I didn't do anything with drivers at all. it DOES take…
  • * Download VB-Cable Driver from here: http://vbaudio.jcedeveloppement.com/Download_CABLE/VBCABLEDriver_Pack42b.zip * Install the driver – NOTE: You will NOT have any shortcuts in your start menu or desktop. This is just a driver that simulates a cable. * Right click on your speaker icon in your task bar then select…
  • Yet you just wrote a bug report . . . which has absolutely nothing constructive in it at all. If you are going to cry, at least do so realistically. Kids where i live, when they cry, they at least tell me WTF is wrong and ask for something. Yes, everyone else . . . I just fed the little troll, because i am, as always, the…
  • This has actually been an issue for quite a while. I reported it last year in this thread: http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/showthread.php?t=695261 EDIT: I found a workaround for now that works. See my reply below.
  • I understand what it is SUPPOSED to do, Bran. Just saying I am not installing until it does start doing that. Also just checked with another friend that has Arc installed for his and he can;t access the new stuff either. If people start verifying that it starts working for them, I will happily install Arc on this PC and…
  • Reading this thread i see that not everyone gets the new uniform. It is randomly selected. I do not want to install a new client, which will force me to reinstall STO entirely from scratch even though it's already on my computer, which will then force me to patch from scratch as well, just to take a "chance" that i may or…
  • Because that kid wouldn't know military or naval tradition. You have to actually be aware of actual history and not just fictional history to get that a lot of fictional history is based off of real history ;) Anyway, nice ship. I'll add it to my collection on release.
  • I want to say that i give VERY VERY high respect and kudos to this post. Admitting an experience - even if it is a negative one - publicly - so that others may learn from a mistake is probably THE best use of a forum. 98% of the time the reason I end up on a forum is looking for answers when I am struggling, and when i was…
  • 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.…
  • 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.
  • So . . . mine is fixed . . . thanks, Microsoft . . . Today I had a Windows 7 update. It had 3 updates.. IE11, .Net 4.whatever, and a security update. I installed them . . . rebooted . . . all of my windows settings . . . nuked. No documents . . . no pictures . . . no libraries at all . . . windows classic look - like XP .…
  • ROFL!!! THIS! Exactly! That and to the OP . . . you do realize that shopping in the stores is . . . ~gasp~ . . . wait for it . . . OPTIONAL! You get everything you need to max everything out in this game just by logging on and playing. If you WANT extra goodies to LOOK different, you shop around for them, but everything in…
  • 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…
  • You'll have to forgive xynoxx. He just doesn't want to admit that his so-called "super-pc" is locked out like everyone else. Instead of giving positive feedback, he sits posting around like it's the fault of people who don;t have grand hardware. If his game were actually working, he wouldn;t be typing books into the forums…
