Hello,

installed and all that, ran the update, launcher worked yesterday, went to bed, slept nice, had a dream I was popular as Ron Jeremy, woke up, got up, breakfast, took a ****, made some coffee, sat down, turned on my computer, tried to start EVE, ERROR, restarted computer, tried to start EVE again, unexpected error please run repair, I ran repair, restarted the computer, tried to start EVE again, unexpected error and some wall of text, blood pressure rising, biting nails, restart computer, re-download and install patch (tech. overwrite), start EVE again, error again, grabbing meat cleaver, getting back to computer....

Help pls or I run amok with meat cleaver.

Also I hope your mornings start off so splendidly as mine, mr. spitfire.

Launcher is still messed up. Tries to download some patch, goes to 25% and resets back to 0.
No logs, no error message, and no i dont use eset firewall.
running exefile directly results in launcher being downloaded again.
Great, great job. Maybe its time to rollback this change no one asked for ?

A few issues with update 1.5 - may well have already been commented on

Client worked fine for several days (Mac version) then client screen loaded but after pressing play nothing. Reboot solved the problem

Random drop outs usually at stations or jump points -- never had this problem before - same with PC and Mac versions

Also takes for ages to actually load

Overall we seem to have a less stable environment ....hopefully this will be sorted quickly

Epic Fail ... EPIC YEAH! It's so bad I would be ashame if I am one of
the developer there haha. Incredible. Man you guys considered the
worst ever seen on the history of programming fail when it's a game of
this size ... you fail in the most gigantic way.

PLEASE ROLL BACK YOUR LOUSY LAUNCHER AND TEST IT AGAIN
AND LAUNCH IT NEXT YEAR. HOW ARE YOU GONNA COMPENSATE
OUR TIME AND MONEY ...

GIVE US WHAT WE PAID FOR. AND WHY ARE PEOPLE HELPING YOU
SOLVE THE PROBLEMS WE PAID YOU TO SOLVE ANYWAY??

EVERY PLATFORM IS FAILING !
XP , WINDOWS 7, MAC ... NO NO THE PROGRAMMER SHOULDN'T BE
FIRED ... THE CEO SHOULD STEP DOWN HA!

IF YOU HAVE NO PASSION FOR YOUR JOB ... DON"T DO IT.

Peace is the way of my war.

Once again I will post this for those of you getting the data corruption issue while trying to repair or update the software so that you are able to possibly get the game to work since CCP refuses to announce they botched in a big way.

Cause: CCP has decided to use a protocol that uses a UDP packet stream and has zero error correction while streaming the traffic to the end users. The problem is not with the UDP stream itself, it's with anything that does protocol filtering such as your router in the case it's doing SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection) filtering or many firewalls which do protocol filtering.

Cure: You must disable in your router the SPI Filtering if it's enabled. If you use ESET / NOD32 you must go into the advanced options and add exceptions for Launcher.exe, repair.exe, and the eve.eve file as well.

CCP is telling people to reboot and jump through hoops and all sorts of silly things. This isn't an issue you can resolve by rebooting it if you're geting those errrors. So try using the suggestions.

I have to reboot at this stage.

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.


Same problem, Same setup.

This just isn't true. We're using HTTP range requests and rsync over HTTP.

This however is true and we urge those who are running into problems with ESET NOD32 to contact customer support and ask them to release an update to the software.

This workaround which was posted early morning on the 14th was to resolve various other issues people were experiencing and many have reported that this worked for them. Data corruption which is what a lot of people are reporting now can be the result of firewalls and non functioning routers and other causes which we are still investigating. We're very much trying to help people getting this issue and getting to the bottom of the problems they are experiencing.

So let me get this straight....

I used to click the Eve Icon on my desktop and it started the Eve client and took me to the login. I would then login and select my character that I wanted to play with that particular day...

Now, I click the Eve Icon on my desktop and it starts Eve Launcher, which I then have to click to play Eve, which starts Eve client and takes me to the login. I login and select my character to play with.

Right now I am thinking wtf? Shocked You have just added another step to the whole startup process. What is the point. Is there any way I can bypass this and just start Eve client directly? Seems like a waste of time.


+1

They needed a patcher, they made a launcher go figure why...

Not to mention this a pain in the ass while running multiple client, thanks god they added a tick box to prevent launcher execution.

What a waste of time, remaking rookie ship, renaming stuff ( implant renaming is good ), now the launcher. but we can't copy and paste number ingame... damn ccp...

Edit: is it possible to have a FULL and correct patch notes ?

Multiple clients do not work correctly anymore. I have been running 2 client instances for the past 2 years with no problems. Now all of a sudden when I run 2 clients, they will often drop down to 1 fps or even 1/2 fps.

Here are the details:
If I start one client, get a toon into the game, then start the second, both clients start out working ok. HOWEVER, if I open the FITTING WINDOW on one of them, the fitting window takes 10-15 seconds to load and both clients drop to 1 fps or worse. Sometimes closing the fitting window fixes the problem, but not always. Exiting one of the clients and starting it again is often required.

I also get the slow-down problem if I start the second client up before the first one has completed entering the game.

I would not be surprised if other events can cause the slowdown effect too. I'm afraid to take my toons into PVP with the client hosed up like this, because if this happens in combat I'll be dead before my screen refreshes.

Absolutely nothing on my computer has changed, so its configuration is irrelevant. Running 2 clients simultaneously worked smooth as silk before the 1.5 patch, and now it is broken. This has a HUGE impact on my play and frankly if this issue gets swept under the rug I will have to seriously reconsider whether EVE is worth the time and effort. Nothing was added in 1.5 that's worth losing multi-client for.

For me, smooth multi-client operation is not a nicety -- it is a REQUIREMENT.

I'm running Windows 7 SP1 Home Premium on a decent gaming tower (64 bit, 8GB ram, 1.5TB hard drive, 2.8 GHz quadcore Intel i7, ATI Radeon HD 5800 Series video card with 1GB RAM, running 1920x1200x60Hz resolution).

Launcher failed to update my client with the newest patch.
Here's a trace:
http://pastebin.com/w3KuAwgu

Edit #2: Oh, to avoid having to scroll through all that, it's a "file already in use" error: WindowsError(32, 'The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process') and the file in question bin\\debug.log)

I'll restart and see what happens.

Edit #1: Just restarting the launcher and it says my client is up to date, whatd'ya know.
