Romulus, have you tried completely uninstalling STO, clearing your Internet Explorer cache, and then re-installing it? I've had corrupted files before that pass all the launcher checks, but cause the game to crash consistently when specific things are done.
Yup - done it 7 times + defragged the comp 3 times. Something about the auto-team aspect of the game just keeps messing with it.
I was actually able to access ALL my toons for the 1st two weeks of January. While playing Champions Online
, one of the guys who was posting in the PVP chat suggested I shut off the "patch on demand" command found in the "Options" part in the log in window. It worked PERFECTLY and I had immediate access to ALL my characters. Then the mid-January patch/maintenance did something that prevented me from using them again, AND my non-fleeted toons as well.
It was so depressing to go from victory to a now total defeat. At least before I could make solo toons and do PVE, but now even that isn't an option. At least CO still works fine. I even was able to make a decent Klingon and Romulan on there. But it'd be nice to get back on STO, at the very least so I could copy my character bios.
