CCP Aporia - where have you gone. I was looking forward to hearing your replies to the issues ive had regarding this launcher and how the by pass works so much better than it.

why does it not have focus on the password box?

why does it still not remember account names after its patched?

why does the log off or restart button not close the client and reopen the launcher so I can log alts in WITHOUT leaving 8 launchers running on my desk top while im playing?

why the hell is it validating the client every time its opened?

why are you trying your hardest to remove basic multibox support?

do you know that using the eve.exe from the bin folder allows you to fix all of the above issues?

it retains password focus, it has working log off and restart buttons which don't require me to leave 8 launchers running on my pc. it only cares if the client is up to date and dose not keep checking and lastly and most importantly it provides the multibox support that the launcher does not.

fancy answering any of my questions CCP Aporia ?


Because they want to take your money and **** your gameplay. They consider multiboxers a nescessary evil, and they realise all multiboxers are too rich to quit EVE anyway (PLEX subbed until 2020 and **** like that).

Not me - I pay cold, hard cash for my accounts and use my in-game ISK to buy in-game toys.

If the current state of launcher/login becomes mandatory with the June patch, I will be dropping Eve, as the login process is way too annoying to log 10+ accounts in.

Time to check out Neverwinter and Rift, I think, given the lack of CCP response to this thread!

Another atrocity as a result of this terrible launcher, we can no longer log out to the pilot select screen to switch pilots quickly. We have to go through the entire log in process again. What a joke.

Well, duh!

We're fine with a login screen but not this frigging abomination of a launcher that makes logging in multiple accounts a frigging nightmare!

New build pushed to Singularity containing fixes for the focus at startup of the Launcher, as well as shutdown fixes for Windows XP, 2000 and Server 2003 as well as some changes to the handling of a cancel request (stopping the update whilst it's downloading).

Launcher now starts up and displays a gray bar across the bottom, with "DOWNLOADING LAUNCHER UPDATE" just above it on the left. Play button is grayed out.

Nothing else happens apart from the little ad in the bottom left corner cycling through its 3 images.

Would love to log in to Sisi...

Restart your computer or kill all the ccp.exe's that should fix the issue. While it updates the launcher it does not show progress which is getting some people frustrated.

If i dont know something about EVE. I check https://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/ISK_The_Guide

Started the Singularity Launcher, let it update. Tried to log in but the play button stays greyed out, waited for a few minutes only to see it shutting down not to re-appear.
Looked in the the task manager and found the (now familiar) two 'ghost' launcher.exe processes still in memory. Apparently the XP fix didn't work wich is also an explanation why the launcher never restarts properly: when launcher.exe is in memory a new launcher can be started but will not show or do anything.

After killing the launcher.exe processes and rebooting I tried it again, this time without logging in. But to the same effect: after a few minutes the launcher disappears, leaving the two 'ghost' launcher.exe processes in memory.

Ok, this shows it shutting down to install the version with the fix. To elaborate 2.1.543461 contains the XP shutdown fix, so any builds prior to that will obviously not terminate correctly.

After the log you posted above, when you started it, what happens? Does it terminate correctly? What version is reported in the titlebar?

I rebooted once more, fired up the SiSilauncher which starts the new launcher which starts the game...and now it works flawlessly!
The launcher lets me start the game (no greyed out button) and terminates correctly, whether by hand or automatic. The launcer.exe processes are gone from memory. I don't know what I did wrong previously but it works now.

Version 2.1.543461 btw.

And thanks for the hard work.

During the masstest I had a crash to dektop. I tried to restart and get a error message and offline screen. Needed to reboot the system.

Hooray! The new Sisi launcher finally works! It updates itself and restarts the new version. It no longer leaves behind phantom launcher.exe processes. Thank you for finally fixing it.

I have been using the Singularity server launcher for several days without issue.
Today, I booted up the Singularity launcher and it went through an update.
I then logged in on the the Singularity server launcher which then showed "incompatible version" on the Eve splash screen.

I shut down the launcher and went shopping.

Later on I hit up the same Eve Icon and booted up what I thought would be Singularity launcher.
Singularity launcher has now become the Tranquility server launcher.
Hitting any of the (what was singularity) exe icons (desktop/folder) now starts the Tranquility launcher.
Tranquility and Singularity folders are separate on my c drive.
I'm thinking the update, whatever it was, updated my singularity from a Tranquility source.

Hope the above made sense.

Anyone else get this problem?
