What exactly are you having trouble doing with the launcher? I haven't had any issues with it yet, personally, but maybe something has changed in the last few days.

I actually tested it while writing this post, and it found a new update which is downloading at a pretty solid rate. No trouble with it. Now that I think about it, are you talking about the external launcher or the in-game main menu? I've heard of people having crashes with the latter.

The external launcher. At first I thought the game just flat out wasn't downloading because it was "syncing files" at 0MB/s... I let it sit for a while and noticed it was actually downloading at a snails pace. In little tiny bits every few minutes where the download speed will jump a little.

I have a really good connection, I have no idea why it's doing this. Right now I'm at like 30 percent after letting it go for like an hour.

I regret deleting all the files to try and get it to work, because I had about 75 percent of the files before.

The launcher is also riddled with graphical issues. 90 percent of the time I can't see the download bar clearly and half the time I can't see what the download speed is because it's blocked by some weird glitch.

It's infuriating to say the least.

If only I could play this game. The launcher is terrible, I flat out can't download the game...

It's ridiculous really, you have platforms like Steam for games like this and they still opt to using launchers that constantly get in the way of actually playing the game.

It's driving me insane... I've been trying to play for 9 hours now, lol

Not that it's much consolation, but the installation and launcher issues only came up recently.  I just tried to patch up my game this week and I kept having the installation stall out around 60% and display 0MB/s for the download.  After a few futile attempts to fix the issue, I ended up just leaving the launcher running for a few days and it finally finished the update on its own.

oddly I've had no issues with last two launchers including today.  Odd since I had several issues when I first tried playing a few months back

Playing this with the Rift and a 360 gamepad (figure I'll hold off on HOTAS until closer to Star Citizen).

The good is just indescribably good - the scale, the immersion, etc. It really is the best Rift experience I've played.

The bad - sometimes when comets come into frame, my frame rate hitches hard (I get 1-2 second pauses, which make me motion-sick in the Rift). And some stations are dropping my FPS like crazy with the same problem. After my holiday travels I'll spend some time and hopefully find settings that work well. Also, it really is a slow start with no hand-holding - I watched a couple of YouTube videos so I have the general gist, but I don't really feel like I have any breathing room yet with just a few thousand credits in trade profit and courier missions under my belt. Thank goodness fuel is cheap, somehow having that little of a reserve of cash makes me just want to save a few tens of Ks just as an emergency fund.

What I'd really like to start doing is exploring more - I have a couple of new astronomical objects charted, but I haven't traveled far enough to sell the info yet. I figure once I do have my cash reserves, I'm going to set out on a road trip to explore/courier to new systems and see if I can get self-sufficient that way.
