I deleted most of the lower tiered ships and now regret it as it cost dil to replace them. Only delete a ship if you know that you'll never use it again. (C-store purchases can be reclaimed.)

Yeah, they stick you there, can't reclaim ships you've bought if they weren't C-Store ships. Even ones you got back when they were free.

Made that mistake on my KDF toon a while back. Mostly, I needed them for storage space, as we're now up to like 20 different shield/engine/deflector sets you could have collected over the years, but storage growth hasn't kept up.

About to just start deleting tribbles, pets, and the anniversary toys, as they just refuse to make allowances for people that have been playing this for 3+ years now, and have all kinds of crap we can't really keep storing, and don't really want to throw away because you can no longer earn these items....

I usually delete my free ships as I level up, until I hit Admiral. Just doesn't feel right that a Commander can be captain of three different ships at once. But an Admiral could naturally command a fleet, which is what I see my stable of ships as.

Plus, it frees up ship slots, which as a silver player I don't have many of.

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

Last week, I played the episode with Scotty in it. (Night of the Comet?) Made me reminisce about the last time that I saw James Doohan. He seemed like a fun gentleman and said something along the line that Scotty was just James Doohan with a Scottish accent.

So why am I posting about an actor in the STO forum? - Scotty was a hugh inspiration for my playing Star Trek Online. My first character is a FED Engineer.

Mr. Doohan crossed the great barrier eight years ago and I wanted to tip my hat to him.

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

Suddenly I'm having a problem getting in game.

"Cryptic Game Launcher Has Stopped Working"

Haven't been able to get in, or find out how to reliably fix it. Running updates on my laptop today to see if that helps.

There was an update to the launcher itself yesterday, it seems. Maybe you're just not getting it for whatever reason.

uh-oh! you better hope you are not forced to use ARC now.

There might be a re-install for the launcher available somewhere else on the internet.
You only get Arc now on the STO page.

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

I downloaded the latest version of the launcher, and it's still crashing. I just get an empty launcher window, then the error message. I can't make heads or tails of the details.

Most of the posts I've seen online about this problem point to a problem with nVidia graphics cards, or a dual graphics card setup. But I have a pretty basic Intel graphics set. Never had a problem till a couple days ago.

I only just realized that the 2 Costume Slot unlock currently on sale in the c-store is a steal. 200 zen for 2 additional costumes on ALL my characters, what a steal.

Hmm. I just won a D'Kora. They're going for 88mil in the exchange - not sure whether to keep or sell it... probably won't make huge amounts of use out of it (I have loads of other ships) but it might be worth it. What do y'all think?

Ruaidhri - sorry that I can't help. I had a serious problem with the launcher last year and had to eventually copy the install from one computer to another to fix.

Intrinsical - I probably have enough costume slots; however, I took that offer. As you stated, it's a steal.

Jim Gamma - IMHO, if you don't have plans for the ship there is no reason to keep it. Use the funds to outfit your other ships or buy dil.

I've actually narrowed the problem down to a corrupted .dll file. It's affecting other programs on my laptop as well. From what I can tell the one sure fire way to correct it is to do a reinstall of Windows 7. I'm not even sure I got a disc with the computer. Need to go rummaging through my computer stuff. Not sure what to do if I can't find it, or just plain don't have it.

Try replaceing just the .dll first.

If you have to re-install Win 7 and you've lost your disk, there are several tools available to recover the product key. I had to do that with my laptop's OS and Office. If your laptop came with Win 7 preinstalled, there may be a sticker on the bottom or back of your laptop with the key.

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

I know I've veered into discussion that isn't really about STO, so I apologize for that.

I have actually tried downloading a replacement for the .dll file, even though everything I've read seems to very strongly advise against it. I wish there was a reputable site from which to download it, but I can only find independent sites offering the download. Anyway, the one attempt I made didn't work, and the OS didn't even recognize the new file as even being present in the folder.

My laptop is HP, and sadly the missing file is necessary to even use the HP updater. There is a product key for Windows 7 on the bottom. Thank you Rocketeer, because I stupidly never even thought to look at the bottom. I have a feeling I'm going to have to re-install. Which will be such a pain. I just wish I knew what had caused the corruption of the file so I could avoid doing it again.

I guess I'll just have to treat this like a blessing, getting the chance to clear a lot of crap off my hard drive. Time to make some fresh back-ups of all my personal files!
