I didn't see a way to determine his address. All I know is username and log-in name were different, and instructions said not to reveal log-in name.
In the chat window just type 'Hi', you'll see how your name is displayed correctly once you hit 'enter'. I think this was my first question here too.

If the chat window isn't open, hit your enter key to open it.

Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

Stupid question from stupid me.
It seems as if my STO crashed last night. All that happened is it closed, and there was some kind of prompt that flashed on that said it crashed.
When I try to go on, it asks me for my sign on and password. But then it won't go any further than the prompt asking me if I want to cancell. It never comes up with the ENERGIZE button.
If I just download STO again, will I be able to start up where I left off, or are my characters gone with all my progress?
Please help this pathetically computer-illiterate User.

Thanks.

Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

Characters are completely stored on the server, a client crash can't make you lose them. However, a reinstall is probably not necessary; in the launcher options, you can force a full file check. That should examine every file and redownload any that are corrupt.

On rare occasions, that doesn't work, in which case you have two options:

1) If you can see the crash before it goes away, it may tell you what file it's crashing in. You can then delete that file and it will automatically redownload it.

2) If not, then yes, you'll need to reinstall.

Don't re-install... check your taskmanager to see if anything that seems related to STO is still running and close it manually.

Or simply restart your computer. That should fix it.

I just acquired the Flurry (snowball autorifle) and don't know how I lived without it before. :-)

I tried to shoot Kenny but it won't let me shoot Player Chars. So how are other characters shooting me with their snow weapons? Do they know a glitch that I don't?

I'm wonder how these 'weapons' fare outside the wonderland. Fighting off Romulans with snowballs sounds kinda fun.

Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

The snowguns are using Q magic and only work inside the Winterwonderland. once it's over you can say goodbyy to it for the rest of the year.
You can't shoot other players, at least of the same faction.
What you get hit with is probably just regular snowballs, an "enemy" faction snowball has a chance to knock you over, which I painfully had to endure while doing my daily race.
A couple KDF players found it funny to grief me the whole distance.
I won the race, but just barely.

Be glad it didn't because I have an avalanche now.

You can still keep stuff like your winter jackets and scarves, and the lirpa or bat'leth year round, right?

Yep, if you have an empty costume slot just create a winter look for your char that you can switch to when it's the season. If the hand weapons work like the ones last year, it's an actual weapon. You should also be able to sling it around for effect against other characters or npcs but without damage.

^I now have two winter looks! Although the new jacket set will work quite well out of season, as well...

Not many players use the Ophidian Cane or it would have been nerfed a long time ago.

It's good for disrupting enemy ground combat and used in combination with other abilities can drastically change the odds in your favor.
