You can probably open a terminal, and launch from the command line.

Uhmm, I can't believe nobody noted this, but those are great instructions if you want to patch your live TQ install to singularity since that's by default where most of them are kept.

Best to do this in your test install folder instead, usually people put it in something simple like C:\evetest.

Other than that, I had the same issue with "There was an error while validating your account, please try again.", tried this fix and it worked (well, in my test install folder, of course!). Big key thing is to switch from eve.exe to \bin\exefile.exe to launch the game. This just bypasses the launcher (and makes any future patching a bit difficult, but hey we all wanna play with big shiny things, am I right?)

It may be a good idea to make another shortcut for the launcher as well, so you can still patch and maybe play with it to find if it's fixed or not.

This works!!!

The key is making the shortcut to the exefile.exe in the bin folder of your Eve Test Server folder.

Then of course editing the shortcut to point at /server:Singularity

Hi,

A bit late, but I am just posting to confirm that we know about this problem, that the launcher for Sisi does not allow to login. It will probably be fixed tomorrow morning.

For now please use the posted workaround to start \bin\exefile.exe with /server:Singularity.

I had "/forcelauncher" as part of my switches and it started working once I removed that.

Might have been just random chance though.

my original command was

...\launcher.exe" /forcelauncher /server:Singularity and now its just \launcher.exe" /server:Singularity.

Not sure where the /forcelauncher came from. Its not on my main eve shortcut.

This issue is already fixed. You should be able to login through the launcher.

Now is soon-ish (I would have hoped that it would have been earlier...). Sisi is back and I'm gone for today.

Yep already open from terminal, that's how we do it in MAC, though still get this: There was an error while validating your account, please try again..

I also have PC get same error message there as well...!!

I'm getting the same error today. Have you tried the "C:\Program Files (x86)\CCP TEST\EVE\bin" workaround?

Works for me.
