What's it going on now, 6 months since her last post on this thread?

Yeah, way to go CCP.

I was going to post with 3 weeks to go, but some things came in the way.
With now 18 days til the 1-year-day of the new launcher system, I'd like to know if AWESOME is coming?

The normal cycle, I am told, is bollocks and promises now, and some of those promises are delivered in some increment of 18 months later. If that is overall true, we might get AWESOME in just 6½ month. By now, I have forgotten exactly what it is that I am looking forward to, that's the nature of waiting a year for it, but I am certain that with a year to work on that particular AWESOME, CCP Atropos will have made a better job of it than the launcher she delivered a year ago - almost to date.

No kidding.

I still don't know what we were supposed to get, so maybe we got it and never realized what it was because it was so special.


Or, its the typical CCP bag of manure and we got exactly what we knew it was.

Hello Arya I have the same problem I submitted a ticket and the answer they gave me was that " Unfortunately we will not be able to assist you with this issue. This issue is with the Steam authentication service and the Steam team is working on resolving this issue, please try again in a few minutes. " so I guess we have to wait till this is fixed.

launcher is still ****.
multiboxing is still much more painful using the launcher.

by pass still the best option.

good to see you have improved the launcher, oh wait you have done nothing in a year, how CCP of you CCP

And we're approaching those 18 months that was traditionally necessary for botched features to get a needed fix.
Can we hope that the promises of AWESOME will conform to this cycle?

Or at least a definite promise that the bugfix will not be taken away from us, that would qualify for me at this point.

I'm too lazy and/or forgetful to check how long since last dev. reply.

Safe to say, I'm not particularly impressed.

Sadly, no.

She posted something yesterday about the launcher not downloading a patch like it's supposed to, so I think she's given up on this thread as it's been like 9 months.


The possible good news could be that in about 3 months there's a chance we might get a fix for this.



Maybe.





If we hold our breath.

Having this problem for the last day and a half - launcher falling over trying to read the info file from the client node, but the file can be read in chrome.

exefile works ok, though - try to figure the passing of id and pwd to create shortcuts that can bypass the launcher . . .

. . . until there's an update!?!

Idk what you guys are doing but i have no problems launching multiple extentions of exefile and multiboxing. I only use the launcher when i need to update or fix the client.

Really, this is the only way to effectively multi-box. I've heard CCP wanted to remove the EXEFILE altogether, but I'm not sure what their plans are now since we've not heard much in 9 months.

I've started using the launcher 12x... it's an extra step and requires some lead time but it would seem it can't really be helped.

I do want to say that as I'm moving through these programming, 3d graphics, and traditional art classes, it has occurred to me that maybe we don't know what we're asking for.

Whilst I appreciate the valid feedback and discussion that's occurred regarding the EVE Launcher, this thread is both considerably out of date and wildly off topic. If you wish to further discuss the EVE Launcher in a productive manner, I would welcome any threads you would wish to open on the matter in the relevant forum.
