    This is new. I updated the game this morning and when I get home to play I get this error. Firewall is completely disabled and AV off. I also deleted "launchpad.cache", just in case.

    Any other ideas? I played last night. :/

    Still not working for me. I tried fixing the launcher and cleared the launcher cache, but no luck. I play on EU servers, steam version, if that helps any.

    SOE's domain name expired today and has affected people's ability to access the forums and games. they are working on getting the domain name back up but it takes time for the registration to take affect across the net.

    People getting black screens on the launchpad is because the client can't communicate properly with the server because their access route has a DNS server with the vacant domain page data.

    The only reason i can access these forums is because i modified my hosts file with the IP addresses of and etc thanks to feldon from using the ip addresses can't access or patch the games)

    Thank you, this worked out for me today, actually my hole host file was missing, strange..
    Anyway, with a new host file and updating game files did not solve the issue, but adding this at reddit did the trick.

    If someone is still trying to solve this to this date it might work for you also :)
