What kind of issues? Sometimes I get a timeout the first try, or if I alt tab out and back in real quick it will usually avoid that and go right into the game.
Once in game I've had very few problems the last few weeks.

Sometimes a javascript error,sometimes the log-in box won't show up. With the latter I know I can just re-set the launcher ( Ctrl + Shift + Alt + R) but with the former I just don't know. I went through a lengthy ticket support chat over that one and their final bit of advice was so convoluted and complicated I just didn't bother. It's entirely random.

It's ok though,if it runs I think fine,I'll play it but if not I just play something else.

*update*

Just carried out a launcher update (mandatory) and now upon opening the launcher I get a red box telling me SC can't continue. The only real option to continue is to verify files which I am now doing. Oh joy it's only 13 gigabytes to complete.

Is this a new update? If so it's never gone this way before. It was 3.91 before this update started which I thought was current.I just keep telling myself....it's an alpha,it's an alpha.

*update* I was wrong. It's not just 13 gigabytes,it's also an additional 48 gigabytes.

Do you have the launcher and the game installed to the same drive? To me it sounds like your launcher lost the location of the game and redownloaded the whole game to a new location.

You got it Master,I just checked. I'll delete the old copy,move the fresh install back to my games drive and create a new shortcut.

If the install location came up I guess I missed it or was just clicking too fast. I knew it would be my fault smile

I think there is a bug with the launcher where it reverts to the default install location. Im not sure what causes it but a lot of people seem to be having it when they verify files. If you ever get that red popup box saying it cant start starcitizen i'd check to make sure its pointed the right direction.

I'll be sure to do that.

Still getting the javascript error with the new launcher at times. I'm not alone with this problem.I'm not sure why they can't fix it. It's been happening for quite a few updates and launcher versions.
