I wonder if CCP will give us all some freebies in compensation? Blink

Fix for now:

a) Go to Task Manager and kill any EVE related files, first of all (or better yet, reset your system if you're not tech-savvy)
b) Go to your Eve Install Folder and open the "bin" folder.
c) Launch ExeFile.exe

Repeat step C for extra accounts you may need to log in.

If that doesn't work for you, I don't know what to say.

Multiboxing is not a first concern, and never should it be.

And How is it intrusive? It's a global patcher for most games.


Of course Multiboxing should be a first concern. Over half the subscribers in eve have more than one account.

Wait...multiboxing isn't a concern in Eve? The fact that almost everyone in Eve has an alt account sure fooled me.

They probably need again 3000 canceled subscriptions to make things going right way nad listening to players. U have to weaken their "real" money income to get their attention back.

Nice fail as all time since Apocrypha. This game was fine with apocrypha patch. From this one its goes just to worser and worser game.

Not claiming to have a fully working fix here - but it worked for me patching up my other computers so if anyone want to try go for it.

If the straight exefile.exe launch does not work and showing incompatible protocol you could try this file.

Torrent: http://eve-files.com/media/torrent/eve-update-20130521.zip.torrent

http://eve-files.com/temp/eve-update-20130521.zip (it's the files that got modified for me today, 50mb)

Copy and while launcher will still most likely fail, start the exefile.exe straight from the \bin folder.

On your own risk ofc but worked fine for me.

Else many suggested running repair.exe which seems to work in some cases.


/c



Can confirm this worked for me



Confirmed it works for me. The shortcut to *\bin\exefile.exe in on my desktop and it completely bypasses the funky "launcher".

CHRIBBA: THANKS A MILLION Smile


This is working for me.

Start the game anyways and it will ask you if you want to download a new build.


no i start the game and nothing happens, says incompatible protocol, but manually done the upgrade and im now getting the offline mode too lol



Ok then the only other option I can suggest is to go into your closet and grab those ruby red slippers and click your heels three times. Let me know if that works for you.



Tried the slippers and they didn't work (again!!). What else?

1. delete %EVE_DIR%/launcher
2. Download launcher install from wiki
3. Run repair.exe
4. Run %EVE_DIR%/bin/exefile.exe

Hi everyone,

I ran the executable in the /bin/ folder, had to install a couple updates, but now it;s running well for me. I hope this helps!
See you all out there.Twisted

confirming that repair tool used about 3-4 times followed by exefile.exe worked for me.
