EVE Client Freeze?

Starting this morning I am getting a freeze every time I get in game. I select the character, it loads, windows function for about 10-20seconds then the game freezes. The cursor turns into a windows "wait" circle and the game becomes irrevocably unresponsive.

This happens every single time regardless of what I try since this morning's downtime. I tried to delete the cache, use launcher, not use launcher, etc

Same issue here, it started recently. Pc works fine with everything else, only in EvE it happens that it freeze, HDD starts working like crazy and than in about 5 - 10 seconds ( sometimes less ), everything is back to normal.

This is very problematic in fight. VERY problematic, I hope you guys will get into this!

Yes often, but not here. This may come as a shock to you, but sometimes stuff posted on the internet is factually incorrect. The articles you refer to are simply using the wrong term (BIOS instead of firmware). This is common since most laymen are more familiar with the BIOS term, and since the process of flashing firmware superficially appears similar to the process of flashing BIOS. It's sort of like how non-military people will refer to a pistol as a "gun". Someone who actually develops graphics card firmware would never make this mistake, but Seth doesn't really develop firmware so he doesn't know any better.

After some longer investigations the CCP ticketing team and me came to the conclusion that it was an memory issue. Once I removed the broken memory bank the issue was solved. Interestingly memtest did not found this memory issue. So it was probably a very rare bit-flip.

sure, keep touching yourself about your self proclaimed authority in development..........

maybe you should go back to your c# or iOS crap you are "developing"

just so you don't stay dumb all your life Mr authority, "firmware" is used to designate a very low level piece of code, and BIOS are specific firmwares tasked to provide interfacing compatibility vs other pieces of code, whether them being other firmwares or higher level code.

to be complete, "modern" computer often have several bios, the mobo one (wich is now mostly replaced by EFI), and other BIOS tasked to interface various devices with the main bios or directly to specific drivers.

the most common kind of additional BIOS wich can be encoutnered are either GPU BIOS, tesked to interface themselve to the BIOS for basic function, and drivers for advanced functions.

this can also be SCSI (or RAID) cards, tasked mainly to provide a Basic Input Output System to be able to be used by the mobo's BIOS (or EFI).

this is also true for cards like the HSM cards, used for data encryption....


pretty sure many other kind of cards use this principle.


you are welcome, i won't charge for this class

Do not know if it will help here, but us Mac users get the perma-freeze too. It seems to be strongly correlated with network activity. For example, running a torrent in the background is virtually guaranteed to generate a freeze. Also I can usually get a freeze by logging in three accounts, fleet warping them to a gate and in the middle of the warp have Firefox open up a set of bookmark tabs.

So if you are getting the perma-freeze issue, try stopping all processes that access the network other than eve.

Eve always freezes after few jumps with solar system map open. Just as described in https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=243840.
