One issue to consider please:

The launcher seems to be downloading and uploading consistently; please add a metered connection option.

And thank you.

wow

This is the greatest ui-related feature I have ever seen implemented aside from the changes to overview icons. The new beta launcher is absolutely breathtaking. I am extremely impressed. I saw the beta launcher in action at the hands of CCP Cognac at EVE Down Under 2015 and decided I would try it. I downloaded it mere moments ago and it was the most seamless installation and auto-update process for any game client I have ever used. I am actually in awe. It is so beautiful. The background image is amazing, the layout is faultless, and I can DRAG tO ReSIZe THE FREAKING WINDOW!!!!111. It looks perfect on Windows 10.

The following is a list of how I feel about the beta launcher:

  1. wow
  2. good godwow
  3. wow! Team RnB


Thank you so much! I really look forward to the launcher going to general release and to further projects from Team RnB!

The new launcher looks promising. At the same time, there is some possible improvements.

Profile now contains all information related to the characters AND physical settings like monitor setup.

I don't know how many in EVE plays with multiple accounts and multiple clients. It would be nice to choose the screen in the launcher, without changing the profile. Currently to change a screen you need to logon then change the screen. For most this temporary blocking of a monitor might not be important. For others this could be a true challenge or a total disaster. Bringing in a [fill in your favorite alt] that blocks your main at the wrong time would be, not cool.

My personal favorite way to solve this would be a screen pulldown menu that can be changed before launch. This would also very visual show what screen the client is going to end up on.

This might be a minor issue, for a limited number of players, or it might be something to consider.

New version is not switching between servers could force it using the server list in the upper right but clicking on the list that does open is not working.


This issue should be fixed with GUI version 1.729, which was deployed today.

I love the new launcher.

I was wondering if you could make it larger for players using 4k monitors? Also can i get a 200-250% UI scaling?

In the message of today about Solace & the Masstest, the message was too long for my launcher size(As small as possible). Because I couldn't scroll in the message itself I had to make the Launcher larger to be able to read the entire message.

Adding a scroll ability to messages that are larger than the launcher would be great.

Okay, I have been fighting this for a while.

Cause I have an older SSD, I cannot just have everything going to C: drive. As such, I have symbolic linkings, etc. New beta launcher on trying to start, running as admin, gives the popup that files cannot be found or insufficient permissions.

Is there a folder aside from the users/roaming/CCP folder hiding somewhere on my C drive or another file/folder I am missing?

To quote Lfod Shi

The ratting itself is PvE. Getting away with it is PvP.

Do you have the shared cache on the C: drive? That's what takes up the most space. You can move that in the Shared Cache Settings in the launcher.

This new launcher can stuff it as far as I'm concerned. Been trying since 11am GMT to get it to recognize my character name for IP verification on Sisi and Solace. Had a go at every trick in the book I can think of but nope "Incorrect character name entered" regardless of the fact that TQ logs in witthout a single hitch

Have you changed your password recently? If so, try your old password on the test servers.

No dice unfortunately. Still getting that same ol red text taunting me. Tried making an alt acc and seeing if that turned up anything and the red text made an appearance there as well.

I am simply unable to use the new launcher, I have downloaded at least two different versions and they each display the same issue.

The installation appears to complete OK but when I click on the "finish" button I get a windows error popup saying the evelauncher has encountered a problem and needs to close.

I am left with a desktop icon but when I click that I get told that evelauncher.exe is not a valid win32 application Shocked

I also receive a windows error message when I uninstall the launcher saying that maintenancetool.exe has encountered a problem.

Getting a problem upgrading the launcher from time to time now. Not every update is a problem. Its says its downloading the binaries and then closes the launcher for the update window : http://prntscr.com/9ac5wd



And then nothing happens. i left that **** open for an hour without any progress at all. Only thing that helps is reinstalling everything.

I couldn't see that this had already been posted, sorry if it's duplicate.

When using mumble overlay, the overlay ends up on the launcher itself and not on the game clients.

Been using the Beta launcher since day 1 with almost ZERO issues and I have to say I loveIT

However, after todays update, the launcher does not know when an account is active already, nor will it quit an account from the "Stop" button.

After quitting "in game" the launcher refuses to allow me to select the account I just quit and play on another toon.

Closing, and restarting while I still have a client open simply results in a blank launcher screen.


It's all gone wrong :(

Can you FixIT please CCP ?

Thanks in Advance.

Fixy.

** EDIT ** Workaround - I managed to roll back the Launcher using the File in POST #97 in this Topic - "evelauncher_987223" Confirmed to be working perfect again as it used to be.

Tried logging in via bypassing the launcher and running the EXE as is. Tried both main and the trial acc's with no luck on both fronts just "incorrect username/password" crap. Itt boils down to the whole name verify BS, make that thing optional, if I wanna make my acc convenient but unsecure then just let me. Or use a capcha, or an email link, or a secret question or a remembered phrase. Anything but this crappy name validation

Did a basic and Traceroute as well to try and figure something out but its all gibberish to me and Tranquility still works just fine, its Solace and Singularity that are being sods
