Hi everyone!

We are now moving to a more rapid update cycle on Singularity, this means your Sisi client can very quickly fall out of date but we have developed some nifty solutions to this problem recently. First there is the Sisi launcer (only available on Windows) which is aimed at making management of a test server client much easier, but you can also use the 'generic patcher' that is linked to from the Sisi patches page. The generic patcher acts as a repair tool that will update a client you have to whatever version the patch was built for. If you log in to Sisi every day you can also just update via the automatic patching service built in to the client.

This also means we are moving our development focus to stabilizing and bug fixing. To help with this process you can file bug reports and there is even a new way to file bug reports, so you can file bug reports on the bug reporting system itself.
For a more rapid feedback loop you can then post the report ID in this thread.

I will attempt to keep an up to date list of issues here, so check back frequently.

FPS drop for some users
User pain: High
Workaround: Please file bug reports as per the instructions linked below, we need to get hardware configuration data to get a clear picture of what is causing this!




Please use this thread for general feedback or to report severe issues, please take the time to also bug report as per the instructions here. There are more detailed feedback threads for the newest features in the Test Server Feedback section of the forums, please use those threads where appropriate.
For account reactivations and unbanning see this thread.
I also recommend reading the latest devblogs to stay up to date on what is coming to Sisi in the next few weeks.

Will there be any new stuff released for testing, or is this the finishing, and stabilization stage?

Todays update will contain some new things, I'm quite excited to see the reactions to some of them but since the devblogs are not out I don't want to announce any of them yet.

I don't control the schedule for devblogs, there are a lot of things that need to happen before one is published (like translations) so they don't always co-inside completely with our schedule for Sisi. I'm pretty sure they will be published this week though.

Yes, I have tried restarting several times and this always happens. How long the black screen lasts does seem to vary a bit though, between about a minute and 5 minutes.

Please verify that this is still an issue after the ongoing update is completed. If so then a bug report with logs and hardware specs would be the next step for this to get fixed.

There will be another downtime on Sisi in about an hour to fix the system loading issue.

>all the features set for Winter 2011

So there will be no changes for assault ships, ewar drones, faction warfare, naga, minmatar, further nerfs for angel ships or any pirate love?
