Hello all, I'm sure this has been mentioned hundreds of times before but I must say again that the launcher updates are pathetic. I have been playing for only 8-9 days and my launcher won't update and is frozen. Yesterday I paid for a plex and extended my account only to be bitterly disappointed today with this update because you need to do this and that to fix it. All other games do not harrass thier customers with the launcher and don't expect their customers to be a PC genius.

I'm paying to play...why isn't the launcher update hassel free and auto like every other game....shocked really that a successful game like this has not fixed this like almost all other games.

Stunned really. Shocked

Do you use an aggressive firewall app? I was using ZoneAlarm for some time and was always having problems with launcher updates. After removing ZA it all started to work perfect Blink

I have never had an issue with launcher updates and the new beta launcher updated Parallax instantly - no wait whatsoever before logging in.

I also suspect some incompatibility with security software on your computer.

I disabled the firewall and turned off antivirus and completely downloaded the client launcher again. That helped a bit as the launcher now looks as it should but it's stuck at the initializing stage. Maybe I have to wait for a day or so.

Oddly, I can get on to play by doing the follow...........C drive > Program Files x86 > CCP > EVE > bin > exefile -- this bypasses the launcher / patcher.

So I can play but I don't like the launcher malfunction. I'm on the Tranquility server. Maybe I just have to wait a few days and unistall / download the client again. Hmmmm.

the launcher will be replaced with the new launcher which is available for early access here

if you have problems with the old launcher you might give the beta launcher a try. (works fine for me, using it for a while already)

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

+1 for the beta launcher. I've been using it for a while now as well and have never run into problems.

Just make sure you copy over your settings: https://www.reddit.com/r/Eve/comments/3nwomq/transferring_settings_to_new_beta_client/
