im having the same problems and i live in france as well
it must have something to do with the french server if there is anyone.
when i have been looking through older forum entries i noticed that there was a similar problem on the Philippines back in 2011
there it has been suggested to change your dns settings to open dns. i did that , also cleared the cach, still no change.
and no way to download anything from eve pages so i had my brother send me the manual patch, after installing that it worked yesterday but today not even that option is working

how can we fix that

all right guys, liste up everyone, i found the solution
it is a dns problem
i first changed to the open dns but it didnt worked
now i switched to google dns, i changed both ipv4 and ipv6, here is a link how you can do it

https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/docs/using

maybe it would also be good to flush your dns, just execute ipconfig /flushdns

good luck everyone

thank for the link!

patching really sucks since they "invented" the launcher.
this time download was almost complete, then resetted to 0 and started all over again.
now getright is doing the job.

@Mr Woodworker: using googles dns didn't help or speed up things here in germany...

Thanks you for the new patch link. My problem is that I don't have proper internet at my house and I have to tether through 3G. The game itself actually uses a very small amount of data but the patches use up a large chunk of data. I have to download from a local hotspot, so having a file I can download on my phone and move to my computer is very handy.

Hello,

I've been trying to follow the instructions as per the first post but I seem to be having some trouble as well.

I download and move the .patch file to the CCP\EVE folder but when I execute the launcher it still tries to download the patch. File size appears to be correct so I don't think its that.

Any help would be appreciated.

Ive had the same issue just now but i think its because there is a newer version of the client that is not listed on here. CCP Devs, any chance of an update

He there fellas,

is sombody able to provide the latest ~500MB patch to play on sisi? (531180 - 531040)

The launcher did' not update the game properly. It get's up to 50% (were it should start the ownload) and stays there forever.
I don't know why. It occured the first time when the latest patch for tranq arrived (but i solved that by downloading the patch manually, thanks to you guys).

Playing for some years and never had any problems with the launcher. Nothing changed on my site Ugh

Hi,

I can't launch the game because I can't update it.

Apparently, I'm trying to get this patch
http://cdn1.eveonline.com/534348/EVE_Online_534348-534348_win.zip

but it's impossibble to access to this link (http 404 error)

Then, do you know the link to the current patch ? which is the current version of EVE ?

Thanks.

Seems to be a nice trick (downloading patches from content server) but i can't get it to work
for the SiSi patch i need.

EVE_Online_531180-534036_win.zip (567,52MB)

Somebody knows a way to get this file?

Launcher is still not updating. Move's up to 50% (download should start) and stops there.

Added the Logfile. Hopefully somebody could help.

Launcher Log File


Edit: >>> PROBLEM SOLVED !!!! <<<


I used the old SiSi Tool (1.35) to copy the neccesary content from my main Eve installation to a new path.
Autorepair found the patch and started the download. Sadly with only 20kb/s.
So i used the new Beta 3 Launcher (SiSi Forum) instead and with it it worked like charm :-)

I'm gloriously downloading through the launcher at about 10 kb/s. What?What?What?
And the above link just doesn't respond.

... Why the hell are the patches not shared through the torrent technology???
(or: would a nice soul setup a torrent please?)

Alternative patching method
April 4th, 2013: Updated links to client version 514947 (Retribution 1.1.10)

Patch notes here
Older patch links can be found at the bottom of this post.

Instructions, Windows:

If you are unsure which client version you have installed you can circumvent the launcher by starting the \CCP\EVE\bin\exefile.exe executable. In the top left corner of the EVE log in window you'll see the currently installed client version. From that you can determine which patch you need to download.

1. Download and open the zip file which will take you to the current TQ client version
2. Copy the .patch file into the EVE Online client folder, usually that would be C:\Program Files\CCP\EVE
3. Run the launcher and it'll do the rest for you automatically.
4. Download and open the latest zip file
5. Copy the .patch file into the EVE Online client folder, usually that would be C:\Program Files\CCP\EVE
6. Run the launcher and it'll do the rest for you automatically.

Here are the latest Windows patch files.
