Tribes: Ascend

Tribes: Ascend

A-hem...Not launching.
So, I'm "KINDA" a "VETERAN" player of Tribes.Was playing it "long" ago, and was addicted. Yet, a thing called Life and Computer Status, separated Tribes Ascend from me.
So I decided to check it out, heared it was dropped, but people still play it blah-blah-blah.

The Deal :
So, I downloaded the game from STEAM, launched it, (which launched the launcher (Ha ha.)), and as far as my memories recall, I should download a update. Checking For Sofrware updates, etc. etc. In the end, it shows me..

Tribes Ascend 1.0.1268.1
The Bar (Its pitch black, nothing at all.) Play (Blackened, when I hover over nothing happens.)

Gears work, I tried it. Also, I checked the Tribes : Ascend site. It says SERVICE UNAVIABLE.
Does it mean there is something going on with Hi-Rez, or Tribes : Ascend is absolutely unplayable anymore?

For me it says "waiting for download" and just stays there forever, with the blue bar full and the play button greyed out. Amazing.

I got the same problem as this gentleman. Would anyone know a fix by any chance? I've tried switching the patch/installation directory to the steamapp folder, tried to reinstall etc.

I have the exact same problem, I've tried uninstalling, deleting all its files and re-downloading and it still refuses to go past "waiting for Dowwnload"
Hello everyone,thats pretty strange, but on my side its gone long ago.The sites got back up, and the game works now.Probably was just a mainetance.I dunno about you, though...

I had this problem (the problem everyone but the OP has/had) but I solved it by completely uninstalling everything with the name tribes in it on my computer before reinstalling tribes ascend a following the instructions of this:

I have the exact same issue. I used to play, got busy and fell out for awhile and when I tried to play again I get "waiting for download", black status screen and greyed out PLAY button. Uninstalled, reinstalled, nothing worked. Pretty frustrating. I'll give the link a try that Washington Irving provided. Hope it works.
