There is an issue with the launcher (running under Win7 x64) during startup: I get the message that this launcher cannot update Eve as long as it is running and tells me to close the Eve process. There is however no Eve process running.

I was able to solve this issue by closing Evemon (a very popular tool) which has the process description "EVEMon.exe". After terminating that program, the launcher finally decided to update Eve. My guess is that the matching of the process name is a bit blurry. ;)

I too had the client problem yesterday but ran the repair which corrected the issue. Ran a few mission and logged.

Today the following Mission no longer works - even saving it to the People & Place it will not let me warp to the location.
Thanks --



Not Gneiss at All Objectives
The following objectives must be completed to finish the mission:

Bring Item Objective
Acquire these goods:
Drop-off Location 0.5 Villore VII - Moon 8 - Quafe Company Factory
Item 9000 x Green Arisite (45000.0 m³)



Objective
Mine 9,000 units of Green Arisite. Location 0.5 Villore



Rewards
The following rewards will be yours if you complete this mission: 1,340,000 ISK
5375 Loyalty Points.



Bonus Rewards
The following rewards will be awarded to you as a bonus if you complete the mission within 3 hours, and 4 minutes 953,000 ISK



Green Arisite
Green Arisite is relatively worthless because of the high costs of refining; one is far better off mining Gneiss instead. As a result, you won't find the former ore on the market. If you're having trouble finding the Arisite at the mission location, just right-click the "Green Arisite" icon in your mission's Journal entry and select "Add to Overview."

well yesterday i got eve working after two and a half hrs and now you broke it again well done CCP



Well I join this club. Not working here either. Played yesterday a bit after I was able to download the patch. Now I got back home from work to relax in space and.... it forces me to patch again and stalls at the 15% of yesterday early.

W7 64. The client yesterday crashed a couple of times but I thought it was due to the crossfire messing up. Switched crossfire off and was able to play a bit without problems but after reading all the things you post here I think the crossfire might not be the problem only =(

Windows client

Rig: HP MediaCentre m8125x
OS: Vista 32 (SP2)
CPU: Intel CoreQuad2 Q6600 at 2.4GHz
2Gb RAM
NVIDIA GeForce 7350LE GPU, latest drivers
All-current sound-drivers (Realtek HD audio)

The sound-engine appears even more borken'ed than it usually is.

Gate jump-sounds: Always the same "flavour," (the most annoying one, I might add--could you at least randomise this again, assuming you changed it? I never realised just how annoying the one sound we now get can be until I heard it 150+ times in 5 minutes.) repeats after you've already jumped but not loaded the next system

Sensor-boosting/ECCM sound: You still hear it if you were near another ship that had these mods active, even after you've warped off-grid

Ship-explosions: Seems to "default" to the lame, wheezy version, volume no longer changes with range from same.

The sound in this game has been broken since Apocrypha--don't you think it's about time to work on it again? It was better before Apoc...

Star Wars: the Old Republic may not be EVE. But I'll take the sound of dual blaster-pistols over "NURVV CLAOKING NAOW!!!11oneone!!" any day of the week.

As of 01:40 GMT (14th March) we released a new Launcher (Version 1.09) and a new repair tool to resolve some issues that players have been experiencing during the initial deployment of Crucible 1.5.


No success re: Mac client. Patch version is the same, so I'm guessing the update hasn't made it to Mac yet. Any update on that?


I am afraid that we have no updates for the Mac yet. It will demand a bit more investigation from our side. I would advice Mac players who are having issues to reinstall the game to see if that resolves the issue.


Downloaded a fresh copy of the Mac client. Install works fine. Crucible 1.5 client update #1 installed fine after downloading from within client. Game runs more or less OK, though I started with a fresh batch of settings so I may not have noticed something. Experienced some abnormally loud audio when zoomed out, as others have spoken of, but Dodixie was so quiet I couldn't test authoritatively. Some client-side lag noticed, but nothing major. So at this stage, it seems the Mac client works as well as the Windows client (bugs and all) as long as the Launcher doesn't have to do anything. If further updates are forthcoming today/tonight, I'll update on whether the Launcher works.


No luck with the Mac client after the most recent update. Launcher loads, says "initialising" for a few seconds, then flashes up the "Creating patch..." message for about a second before giving the message "Client update was unsuccessful". At which point you don't really have any other options, other than restarting the launcher, which repeats the process. I notice that the launcher version is the problematic 1.04 still, and I suspect that a new launcher version may have to be distributed manually for Mac users to get around this without downloading the entire client again.

EDIT: Deleted the patch file (thank goodness it's easier to find now - in /Applications/EVE Online.app/Contents/Resources) and it started with "Creating patch...", proceeded to "downloading", reached 100% on the download and promptly said "Client update was unsuccessful". Many errors in Console about missing x out of x blocks for a range of files.

Running the repair.exe tool does NOT work either: it freezes up at (3/7), and i again lose all network connection. Rebooting is the only way out.

I run a solid dual core win XP (sp3), with a very recent NVIDIA geforce graphics card. RAM a-plenty.


This seems to have been resolved, and the launcher window is now properly displayed after running the (bigger) patch.

At about 15% download in the launcher window, it freezes. I lose all network connections, and the only way out is terminating the launcher. Network connection is restored after this. Re-running the launcher just gets the same results.

Hope this helps.


What? I'm having the Exact same problem was on 15% for over a hour. I was able to get on yesterday for a little while and today another patch that CCP knows won't work because the patcher does not work right. I also have the same basic PC setup.

I'm in the same boat, I tried pointing my browser to the url of the launcher dat file but w 1.09 subbed in and it didn't exist.

Maybe CCP just forgot to port the new stuff to mac and went to bed before we could tell them :(

This is really frakking frustrating.

Read this if your Crucible 1.5 Windows Launcher loops at 15 percent patch build status.

I'm sorry, but I also need to make 2 notes concerning the sound effects in EVE. The most recent is that all ship sounds now are at the same volume no matter what distance you are viewing the ship from. Prior to 1.5, the ship sounds would decrease in volume as you moved your camera back from your ship.

The longer, and older sound issue is that some sounds seem to get stuck, and remain stuck until you both dock and then turn off the sound in the escape menu, and then reactivate the sound.

I know some people play without sound, but I like having it on, as it's useful when it functions correctly.

Good luck on the fixes!

The side-effects I'm experiencing are mainly with the Exhumers:

There's no engine noise on the mining barges.

The Hulk has plain old white lights like its T1 cousins, instead of the T2 red lights like the Mackinaw, that it's supposed to have. See here.

And the Velator 3D model is all messed up with disembodied parts and lights!

I had no problems with installation, and I ran the repair tool with no problems. It had no effect.

Hopefully you guys will fix this soon. Smile

Oh and also, sometimes the sound of the strip miners gets stuck on. One time it even let me dock and the sound was still playing!

Edit: the Skiff has the same problems as the Hulk with white lights instead of red.

So i have an issue where i start the launcher and it starts to update then hits 15% and drops my wireless internet connection. I search for the network with the launcher up and i wont find it. But if I close the launcher the network comes back up straight away.

We linux users, the second class citizens of new eden, are having a ball with this new launcher of yours: we figured out a few hacks in wine to get the game running but we have to revert them to make the launcher work when a patch is needed. Roll

If any dev cares about us poor linux using bastards, please check the linux forum on all the hoops we need to go through to get this damn launcher working.

I've been plexing my accounts since the "18 months" fiasco but was seriously considering charging a 12 months sub on this account before it expires this Saturday, then this patch happened ... What?
