i've been having glitches for the past 1 hour or so. i cleared the cache and restarted EVE client twice. i restarted my machine twice. reset graphics settings, and hte glitches are still there. the modules, damage, and ammo won't update and the targets don't show on screen. if i'm in a pve or pvp fight, i see no damage until i hear the buzzer of my armor and then structure being breached. here are my client and OS details:

EVE Client: Version: 7.11.292761
OS X: Lion 10.7.2
Macbook Pro Early 2011
AMD Radeon HD 6490M 256 MB

thanks for any help.

See if clearing your preferences folder helps, corrupt settings files can cause problems of this sort under some circumstances.

Exit the game and go to The users preference folder is located at: /Users/username/Library/Application support/EVE Online

In there find the Eve Online folder and rename, move it to another location or your harddrive or delete it.

Nnote that doing this unfortunately clears out all your settings as well as your your bookmark folders, it is thus suggested you rename or move the folder elsewhere to see if this works for you before deleting it.

Do note that copying the settings folder or any of it's files back may cause your problems to resurface, this includes the prefs.ini file.
