Soooo the only thing that matters for me is: does it use any additional Windows OS components and therefor does it still work on Linux through WINE?

We don’t like releasing bad code to you or leaving it broken for a long time, and we hope this is a big step forward in fixing that. I hope that in the next few weeks we can put a measurable dent in the number of crashes that happen in EVE


A novel approach! Seems to me that even the technical blogs these days have a fresh way of looking at how CCP has been doing business the last few years.

Now if only if they unbury the bug report and steamline it into the game option itself.

Dust 514's CPM 1 Iron Wolf Saber Eve mail me about Dust 514 issues.

Live on TQ clients from tomorrow's patch.

This uses some very standard libraries - I would be surprised if Eve works without this, but doesn't work with it (although that's not a guarantee).

A nice update!
Not everyone appreciates these more technical or back-end devblogs, but a lot of us do.
Even more than that, we appreciate that you put in hard work on these less-visible tasks that improve the game for everyone.

Thanks!

What is defined as a 'crash' ?

Does that include when clients stop responding, but never close?

Does that include when internet connection drops causing the client to stop receiving packets?

What events will cause the crash report to actually be filed?

This is a very nice step down the road CCP. Good show. Can't fix what you can't see is broken so this will help immensely.

I'm right behind you

Thanks for the reply. Standard libraries sounds good, it's probably just working ootb. Guess we have to wait for tomorrow. (Setting long skill to be trained.)

If you've been on SISI in the last week or so, then you will have been running with this.
