Wineserver crashes on launching STO. Every so often, VMMAP needs to overwrite something causing everything to freeze and thus needs to be force quit. The launcher has to be force quit every single time, which generates a crash report. I've sent, quite literally, HUNDREDS of crash reports on this issue and no help from anywhere.

It is very frustrating. Does anyone else have this issue? Does anyone have "the answer"? If you need a crash report, let me know and I'll copy/paste one. However, in the interests of not cluttering, I did not include one in the OP.

I really love this game, but the crashy nature of it is preventing me from playing effectively. :(

Just stumbled upon this now as I had the same issue! Did some digging around on a few forums and I think I've found a workaround...

Although not the best, if you load STO up in safe mode (have a look in the launcher options menu) change the resolution to a lower setting. This worked for me after crashing every time I tried to play.

Hope this helps!
