    [Edit] Fixed by setting both launchpad.exe and planetside2.exe to Windows XP SP3 compatibility mode.

    I install the game, patch, press play, and then the program stays at the "Game is starting, please wait" screen forever. There is no error message or log. I ran a tracert, ping, and pathping on the server, and everything is going through with no packet loss.

    I have no firewall. I have no antivirus. I am my router's DMZ host. I have an Intel Core i5 with 8GB of RAM and a NVIDIA 560Ti graphics card. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit with Service Pack 1. My drivers are updated and I'm running DirectX 11. I have rebooted. I have been running everything as administrator.

    Do you have Mumble, Xfire or any programs with an overlay running when trying to launch?

    Nope. Just now figured out that compatibility mode fixed it.
