  1. It's in the abandoned sewers, you don't have to run any particular mission or arc to get the exploration badge.
  2. Version 4360 System Use embedded TLS library instead of Windows schannel. The addresses the lack of working TLS 1.2 support on Windows XP as well as certain versions of wine on Mac. Previously, update mirrors using https, as well as server status and login did not function on those platforms. Forcibly disable Direct2D initialization on Windows XP to prevent a crash. Normally such a thing is impossible because D2D was added in Vista SP2, but apparently there are ways... Bug Fixes Fix a rare crash that can be triggered by switching update branches wi
  3. The launcher is, by design, portable and self-contained. You can absolutely have multiple copies of it that won't affect each other. The easiest way to make one is to simply copy the whole directory, maybe clearing out some of the settings json files if you want. Or you can do a fresh install elsewhere, it doesn't matter, the installer doesn't do anything magical beyond copying itself into the right place. There's zero use of the windows registry and no "global" state anymore so they'll be completely independent.
  4. Version 4338 User Interface In addition to the memory cache which has always been present, add a disk cache for images used in newsfeed posts, to avoid wasting internet bandwidth redownloading them after the launcher is closed and re-opened. Use the high quality resampler to scale newsfeed images to the actual pixel size the image will be displayed at. Previously they were being resampled based on the source image DPI similar to the UI components designed for a specific size, then drawn using the OS's stretch mode, This resulted in a lower quality image, esp
  5. The only "solution" is to downgrade to windows XP, which isn't much of a solution at all. Microsoft removed DirectSound's 3D audio support in Windows Vista, both the hardware support and the software emulation.
  6. Version 4318 Bug Fixes Fix the launcher failing to check for updates and/or automatically update when there was also an update to the profile configuration. Fix updates to the profile configuration sometimes causing a crash.
  7. @*Espy Try the HC launcher now and see if there's any change.
  8. Installing the new launcher doesn't currently work on XP because the default URLs were switched to https to work around some ISP caching/filtering problems. However, the secure socket library on XP doesn't support TLS 1.2 which is required by almost all sites now because of vulnerabilities in earlier versions. Working on adding http fallback support for the install step which should help.
  9. You're not the only one, someone else I helped on discord had trouble with one specific file (stage3e.pigg) stalling out over http, no matter if they tried to download it from the North America mirrors or the EU one. They could get it over https so I chalked it up to a malfunctioning ISP caching proxy or security scanner. Fortunately it was only the one file and they were able to get it manually over https. The new launcher does fail back to https, but for a stuck transfer like that it may take quite some time for it to give up on the http version. May have to flip the defaults for
  10. * teleporting with a non-combat NPC targeted if and only if it’s the first time you’ve teleported after doing something that syncs the character with the DB (zoning, starting a TF, joining a team, and a few other miscellaneous things). Can legitimately blame Paragon for this one since it’s a very old bug in a feature they added, but up until this point nobody had made a power that uses it in quite this way.
  11. We're pretty sure it's being caused by Momentum, but won't know for certain until the fix for that is in, which will most likely be Tuesday the 27th during maintenance. In the meantime, if you end up with a character that's missing powers after a level-up hiccup, open a support ticket. A GM can verify by looking at the power list and grant a respec to fix it. Kind of a pain to have to respec but it's possible to get the character back where it should be.
  12. Pretty sure you were affected by the bug that was fixed in 4250: Since live and prerelease had both been updated recently, and the crashhandler package that they all share also had a new build, if you had both set to update automatically and hadn't updated in a while it triggered a previously undetected bug that only happens under very specific conditions. I saw several crash reports on it that identified the issue, chances are some of them were yours. If you weren't able to disable the automatic updates, deleting the package json is exactly what you needed to do to ge
  13. The OP's problem is fixed in the latest launcher update, though if you're stuck in a crash loop you may have to use a workaround in order to get it installed:
  14. Version 4250 Bug Fixes Fix a crash that could happen if multiple profiles tried to update simultaneously (usually from being set to update automatically) that both depend on a shared package that was also updated. Fix a reversion that would cause verify tasks to block other tasks from running. UPDATING NOTE: If you have multiple profiles set to update automatically, you may find that the launcher crashes before it can update itself. To work around the issue, look in your COH install directory and delete the file settings/launcher/packages/launcher.json. As it
