    Default Problem on starting the game.

    I've patched the game to the latest patch. But the main problem is loading the game. After log in to my account through the launcher and "Start" the game, the game seems stucked (black screen with a loading cursor).

    Does anyone have the same problem? Help / solutions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

It sometimes doesn't appear till you actually press play. It takes some time but it checks all the game files and it seemed to download some files. After this the game loaded.
    There is one other thing I did initially. I deleted the Rift settings folder before running "recover". The folder I deleted was "C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Rift"

    This doesnt work for me either...

    If i hover over the Play/Cancel button until it briefly turns to Play again, and i click it... i get the Windows msg "Patching in progress. Would you like to continue?" Yes or no shuts it out completely again.

    Has anyone tried the Recover button on the bottom right? Says file recovery is time comsuming... wondering if anyone has tried this yet?

    The recover button only took 5 minutes for me, but I still can't access the character selection server, Doesn't seem to be a game error, something with communication between my comp and their servers =(

    Ive tried the recover option, switching to windowed mode, updating drivers, switching video cards, playing with other settings, all to no avail.

    Everyone else playing have really crappy internet service and/or older video card by any chance? Personally I have a EVGA 8600GT 512mb, bottom of the line for the game, but others reported it working for themselves on older models.
