You have to choose "Guest" then .. because you cant login with credentials as long as you are offline.
And that works fine for me.

Launcher crashes and launcher data gets corrupted (wild guess here) it seems if you do the following :

  1. Block internet access
  2. remove \Users\Name\AppData\Roaming\StarMade (the Launcher data right ?)
  3. start Launcher and try to choose "skip" in the following process on the 3rd window
  4. Launcher isnt reacting after that anymore and ending it and restarting it isnt working after that

(works again fine after removing \Users\Name\AppData\Roaming\StarMade again)

SmilingDemon changed the task status from "Open" to "In Queue (Launcher)".Oct 26 2015, 6:34 PM

Behavior may have changed.

  1. Block internet access
  2. remove Starmade appdata
  3. start launcher, point installation folder to a working starmade installation and skip creating an account.
  4. press launch
  5. launcher disappears but the starmade connection setup menu never pops up

Next time i try the launcher, it asks all those steps again even though i didn't delete the Starmade appdata folder.

AndyP changed the task status from "In Queue (Launcher)" to "In Queue".Mar 10 2017, 5:12 PM
