Thanks, ccp. Now I have to join all my channels again on all my characters and set the windows up again the way I like them.

And logging in on multiple accounts now takes longer than before.

Excellent work!

Have you tried rebooting the entire internet?

YOU CAN GET AROUND THE LAUNCHER.

I just logged in after having the same issues.

First - Run the repair tool

Second - Navigate to and run the following EXE - CCP\EVE\Bin\ExeFile

Secondly for those getting the offline mode webpage from within the EVE Launcher, this is because the EVE Launcher is timing out when attempting to connect to our webservers. We're currently looking into why the webservers aren't responding in a timely fashion, and hope to have this resolved as soon as possible.

Thank you for your patience.



You mean that the launcher won't start the client unless it can pull down ads from your webservers?

Let's get our priorities straightened out here....

I was having the 'offline' issue also. Quick workaround to get in game:

1. Run repair tool in C:\Program Files (x86)\CCP\EVE
2. After it finishes run direct from the bin directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\CCP\EVE\bin\ExeFile.exe

Worked for me.

1: yes, but it takes about 2 mins or so to load
2: yes very fast.

Launcher shows me a white screen. Cant do anything from there.

My screen has been reset together with window background colours. So has the Neocon and the audio

Chat channels all reset too - no doubt I'll find more as I go along !

After coming home from a long day of work, I was really looking forward to mining some Scordite. I sat down with my cup of coffee and bag of dicks to munch on, but I could not log on!


  • I press play on EVE
  • It waits
  • Then I press ok
  • Then it goes to log-in screen
  • Then it says Incompatible Version
  • Then I go to forums
  • There it says QA was outsourced to a hermit in Douchebaggistan.

Eve is generally working well. This is the first really bad bug we have since a long time. I think CCP has earned a bit of advance good-will. And they are surely dont work harder or faster when you insult them, you wouldnt either.

Excellent work!


I'm actually more annoyed that it was released when it was clearly unfriendly towards multiboxing than over the 'You're totally offline dudebro' error.

What exactly was the huge rush in releasing this before you made it friendlier for people with multiple accounts? You might have even fit some more testing time in there. Instead, you end up with a bunch of people wigging out that it's incapable of remotely working properly and have actually made it more difficult for the majority of your customers to log in.
