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

I've got a weird glitch....

For my character, whenever I load things like hyposprays or powercells in his inventory slot for use during the game, they do appear in the equipent-bar in the inventoryscreen, but not in the equipmentbar on my HUD. So I can't use those items, believe me, I tried. Anyone know how to fix this?

I haven't played STO in a while, because of some issues with internet being really slow. Now that that's fixed, I wanted to try again.

During loading, my Windows Firewall pops up and blocked something called GameClient.exe by Cryptic. Can I allow this through my firewall, or is it something hazardous??
You should allow it. There should be two executable files of interest, one is the launcher and the other the game client. Ideally, you should launch the launcher first as it will check for patches and give you some notices and provide some other options. When you click "Engage", it runs the GameClient.exe file to actually play the game. You can skip the launcher and go straight to the game client if you so desire. (weird things may happen if you skip a patch though...)

On the top right hand corner of your power tray, there are two tiny little buttons. One of them will pop out a little window of all your available abilities. Find the hyposprays, etc. in there and drag them into the tray.

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

I have the same problem. I find that right clicking and dragging the item from my equipment bar of my character screen into an empty spot on my HUD equipment bar will fix it.

Or, I noticed that when it does get equipped it does not always show up in the spot you think. Expand your HUD's equipment bar to show more lines and you may find that it was equipped to a different number spot. If that's the case just drag it to where you want it to be.

Just figured that out, thanks!!!

Well it looks like the Fleet store version of the Ambassador and Kamarag are coming sooner than expected.

Yes, and they tried to slip in a high prize of 5 ship modules, but reduced it to 4 now.
haven't seen a dev acknowledgment of the price reduction, though.

Actually, Borticus posted the message below about 2 hours after the Ambassador blog was posted.

UPDATE: The Yamaguchi and K'maj will cost FOUR (4) Fleet Modules.

The previously-listed price of FIVE (5) modules was incorrect information, copied from the Fleet Excelsior. (My bad!)

The Dev Blog will be updated as quickly as BranFlakes can get around to it.

My apologies for the incorrect pricing information.

Well while the fleet works its way to a T3 shipyard I'll be grinding the necessary dilithium to get 2000 zen so I can upgrade my Ambassador.

Why dilithium? Wouldn't it be faster to grind EC and buy the modules of the exchange?

between Tour the Universe and farming purple stuff from fleet actions and warzones that should be tons faster and is not capped.

My "Biggest need of ST:O after playing a year and quitting a year, then coming back suggestion?":

Get better voice actors. (Yes yes..Denise Crosby just appeared I know)

A new storyline of eps would be nice too. How about bringing back Sisko (assuming there's no in-game ref to this already)

I also assume the game doesn't have the rights to the musical cues.

I may go a head and do that. Mostly depend on what the amount of dilithium I have when its available and how much I'm saving for something becuase right now its over 100,000.

Though considering the lack of things I want in the Z-store right now I'm probably going to use my stipidend for March on a fleet module since thats a free one right there.

Dumb it way, WAY down for me. I'm not really sure what modules are, how to acquire them, and how to exchange them. Thanks.
