Is it just me?

After downloading the latest patch, the launcher seems to be crashing...

2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT 256 MB
OS X 10.9.5 (13F34)

I tried clearing the cache and letting it re-download the patch, I guess the next step is to
re-download the entire client... Ugh.


I suspect this may have something to do with my filesystem being case-sensitive. I note the following line in the Exception:

IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: u'/applications/eve'

Time to start experimenting with symbolic links

Yes, the EVE Launcher doesn't support case sensitive file systems, in much the same manner as Steam. Have you always been on a case sensitive file system, because nothing has changed recently regarding the case sensitivity that would have made it start only now.

Thanks for the info. Yeah, I reinstalled OSX last week. I guess the "launcher" part of the Launcher works, but not the "update".
