Caused my PC to lock up for about 15 seconds before it finally went back to my log-in screen.


It crashed over here too, same warning.

Hmm... Visually there seems to be a little stutter in all tests, but the results show 24, 93, 90, 53 and 38 FPS. Are you sure you get those metrics right or are my eyes lying to me?

These FPS numbers are averages for the scene as a whole - the stutter comes from irregular frame rate. We'll be working on smoothing these issues out as much as we can.

Since the FPS are fluctuating wildly, I hope you are collecting more than just avg frame rate, i.e. number of frames rendered each second or render times + standard deviation.
I mean, the eve client has always had dips in the fps when objects spawn or despawn on grid (or even just opening a context menu), but the stutter in Probe is even more severe.

We've updated EVE Probe, hopefully fixing the crash we've seen in particles as well as addressing an issue with getting logs. Thanks to all who tried the first release - I hope you'll find the time to test this and future updates as well.

Can you please get an auto-updater in it ASAP. I and I dare say most other people would be happy to have it update in the background.

That is something we have thought about, just haven't had time to implement that yet.

Can we get a link to the new version? I tried re-downloading the version linked in the original post in this thread, but I suspect I just downloaded the same version I already had. I'm still getting the same behaviour where the client starts, then quietly closes a few seconds later. I see nothing at all happen; perhaps its because I'm behind a corporate firewall and eveprobe can't download anything it needs?

It's probably the single most important thing you could release right now, please make time :)

Honestly, EVE Probe isn't that large of a file (excluding the assets it downloads after installation). Couldn't you fine folks have the launcher team put a little icon or link somewhere on the launcher for EVE Probe which, when clicked, runs EVE Probe? The program the EVE Launcher links to actually checks checks for a new update prior to running the program. If there is an update it prompts the user to accept the update and then runs the EVE Probe "launcher". If there is no update it exits quietly and runs the EVE Probe "launcher". If EVE Probe has never been run before, then said link would install EVE Probe. This way EVE Probe is included in the EVE files but not natively installed in case the user does not wish to utilize the tool.

Broken down:

  1. Current EVE Launcher (link to EVE Probe)
  2. Installation/Updater Middle-man (if not installed, checks for newest update and installs it. If installed, checks for update. If up-to-date, exits quietly and handshakes with the EVE Probe Launcher)
  3. EVE Probe Launcher (downloads assets as needed. Checks if EVE is running and gives a warning to the user that EVE clients will affect EVE Probe performance)

I've started a new thread with the link to the new installer.

The new thread can be found here.

As to avoid confusion on where to discuss the latest version of EVE Probe and considering the fact this thread has become redundant, it gets a lock.
