Now a few days have passed since the game was released on Steam! Also we had been very busy dealing with the huge amount of new players and providing support for the game.
We are also sorry that the update we released together with the Steam launch was not available for the standalone yet. We are more concerned about the fact, that the old launcher was no longer able to connect to our HIVE, resulting in not being able to play the game anymore. This should be fixed now, we're really sorry for the downtime of the standalone!
ONLY FOR NON-STEAM VERSION: Now the game should be running again! If you still can't login, please delete everything in your game folder with the exception of the "Worlds" subfolder, the "config.properties" file and the "risingworld.exe".
