I have followed the suggested idea's with running repair after the patch, as well as Scanning the Cache with the new tool.

The following happen in this order.
1. The patch worked fine, then did what it needed to do with the new Share cache. This was yesterday after its release.
2. Today I rerun launcher, it does into a wierd loop, with no progress bar. The game will not load.
3. I run the eve repair tool, that says it can't delete various things and completes its step three.
4. I run the launcher again. It starts to download the 7gb download.
5. I then read of the forums about the cache rescan, and have ran that.

The only thing it is telling me, is I have 4gb left to download. I already had 3gb downloaded by the time I got around to the forums.

Also, the various eve folders that would hold the resources... from pre-scylla are void of the resources. My hard drive interesting enough is report alot more free space then before I tried these steps.

Are you referring to the EVE Client install folder?

I have checked around on the hard drive in app data locations, the install directory and a number of other places.

The only thing I am finding anywhere is the Eve install folder, and the share cache in the appdata folder.

Any trace of anything else is just gone.

The cache scanning program is currently still downloading the game.

I had the game fully downloaded before this new patch.
I am not sure what happen exactly, but shouldn't I have just been able to start eve up like normal?

Its as if none of the resources ever got to the share cache folder.

Right after I ran the repair Utility, I logged back into Eve.

I wouldn't have noticed anything at all if I had the bandwidth for this. But it was apparent something was wrong when I undocked from my home station and saw nothing but black, then of course the things progressively came into veiw. The stars first, then the station.

I even want to a close by JB and nothing but icons.

In any case I will let this complete its download.
