I knew I had reason to worry when the release notes said the new launcher was back.
Like many, I'm always red-boxed the first time I log in, so I close the window, the launcher resets. then I log in normally.
Now, closing the window does not reset the launcher - it gives me game error 205 and will not reset, so I am constantly redboxed and cannot enter Lam.
I tried a fresh reinstall - no luck. I changed the shortcut to turbineinvoker - no luck. I use Windows 8.
So, anyone know a way around this? I'd really like to check out the new enhancements.
