Flickering UI Assets.

Hello I have been playing EVE for 3 days as a trial member the game ran great no issues; I paid for a sub last night ran great. Then this morning I started the game it patched and now my UI is Flickering.
To be precise the
Character Select screen is flickering.
The Ship Control Panel is Flickering
The Neocom Panel is flickering.
And as for the Neocom Panel it looks like it’s even drawing the wrong assets for the panel.

My Specs are.
CPU Q9000 @ 2.00GHz Quad Core
RAM: 8 GB
OS: Vista 64-bit OS sp 2
Video Cards: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3870 x2
Video Driver Version: 8.970.100.3000
Direct X Version: 11


As I have just started playing EVE is this an issue with the patch or was there a cliant version change from the trial to the full version of the game. As I just spent $80 last night to play eve this is most disheartening,

Looks exactly like the issue, the most linux users have after the patch. No fix right now. Seems to be a bug in the new client. Very annoying.

I run eve off a usb stick at work, using vmworkstation 10, worked excellent for months, but today nothing but flickering screens. When I got home, installed vmware on my desktop and tried with it, same results. However outside vm, same desktop, eve runs fine. Suspect anything that's using any type of virtualisation is down.

This thread is full of Linux users like myself experiencing the same issue, with a few Windows users chiming in as well. Seems to affect all Linux distros, kernels, and Wine versions.

One thing we've discovered is that the Singularity server seems to be free of this issue. Can you guys confirm this on Windows as well?

I've noticed this flickering seems to be associated with running Crossfire on my Radeon cards... when I switch to windowed mode, without Crossfire, flickering goes away.

I'm also getting Flickering UI 2D assets after yesterday patch.
Running my 1 to 3 EvE windowed clients on a Parallels 9 VM running Windows 7. VM emulating DX9.
Not issues (excepting heavy load on GPU (GTX 560Ti) until yesterday patch.

Game is now almost unplayable.
No crashes for me.

Yeah so I posted on the linux thread by accident.


I am the exact same issue running windows. This has got nothing to do with what OS you are operating.

EDIT: ALso no crashes, only flickering assets and also tears across the screen.

Game is unplayable in this condition.

Maybe you should roll back the patch and then start investigating?

Either way I'm not re subbing until this issue has been resolved.

Same flickering issue. Game graphics is OK, but the buttons and graphic overlays not.

Ubuntu 12.04
wine 1.7.11 (and also testet with wine 1.5)
Nvidia GeForce GTX 670
16GB RAM
Intel CPU

Issue since patch from yesterday.

We've not been able to repro this inhouse, but we have theory. Hoping to have a fix in a patch tomorrow.

Crazy Idea: Reproduce this in wine? I know, that would not help to track down the problem itself, at is would be hard to debug. But it could help to verify issue and fix.

Today's patch did not resolve the issue on the Linux side of things, it seems.

CCP Snorlax, are there any particular log files or anything that those of us who are experiencing this could upload that would help?

Torval Shank, maybe you should try to start EVE from terminal and save the output?

I'll try to gather some info on my ubuntu, but i'm using Crossover Office to run EVE Win Client.
Till the latest patch everything was great.

If things don't improve after tomorrow's patch I'll resurrect my Linux partition on my laptop and see if I can repro this. As Loki pointed out, this might be the easiest repro case for us, even if Linux isn't technically supported...

I believe Mangala (CSM) linked you this vid of it if it's any help.
The neocom icons get their order/positions wrong as I mouse over it.
The same images are mispositioned where brackets and module icons should be. They also seem to attach & spin as modules show their cycling UI. To me it looks like a 2D positioning/graphical assets indexing bug.
