I got the patch today. No problem. Then, for about half an hour, the game would not boot. Screen three quarters black and nothing. Crlt alt del listed the game as not responding. Now, its working again. Not sure whats up.
There was a bit of a problem with the server yesterday for about half an hour, so its possible the game didn’t like starting up without it, although it should just take about 4-5 seconds and then start without being on-line anyway.
Yeah, this site was down at the same time. I left it for well over five seconds. Not sure how long, but less than half a minute before I used crtl alt del.
