Lol

Well what a funny bug! Idea From eve-offline we know now that after downtime the alt-rate is about 50 percent, right?

@CCP
Plz make the number of alts (derived from the number of clients running on the same machine and connected accounts) available through API

And the rage on multiboxing continues.

I really, really want this to become a regular feature of the game.

I have multiple accounts, and multiple characters. I see no problem having multiple characters. But way too many people use them for rather sh!tty purposes (falcon/link alts, botting, etc). This is by far one of the simplest ways to reduce that I have ever seen.

Sorry but it is NOT fixed.

I've been patching, deleting, reinstalling on 6 clients set up on 2 computers and running into the same issues that started with the Galatea patch.
Namely the launchers (and Repair.exe) being unable to connect to the "cdn1" site to download the patch, only now they also refuse to run multiple clients.
I managed to (finally) get one client patched and exported the patch, then imported it into my other clients. However, despite getting the blue "client ready" bar when I start up a second client somewhere between the launcher exiting and EVE starting it throws an error (CCP EveFile has stopped working).

I've been able to (finally) get each client running individually and get into the game, so long as I only run one at a time. However the next problem I've noticed is that even though I was just in the game, when I start up the same client again to log into a different character, I often have to re-import the latest patch again, otherwise it sits at "initializing" forever and then throws the "can't connect to the "cdn1" site BS again.
(But if I start the client and as soon as the launcher window has loaded immediately import the last patch (again), it seems to install it and give me the blue "client ready" bar. Same situation with every client, on both computers.)

When I have been able to connect and patch (1 out of 12 times) and finally get into the game I see that I'm running version 13.08.959190.
(The latest patch in my folder is EVE_Online_959190-959295_win.patch dated 9/2/2015, 13,442 KB)

For whatever reason it either isn't updating the version number or it's not actually installing the patch, but it's letting me into the game (as long as I only run one client at a time).

Yeah, this is not fixed. It de-syncs, lagging, un-responsive with multiple clients open. Just fine with only one client open.

I've been unable to play now since Galatea was deployed, I don't run multiple accounts i only have this one.

My launcher says client ready so I login, I click play and all i get is "Launching" for 20 seconds then it reverts back to "Play". I've completely wiped the game from my system yet i'm still having the same problem. I've paid steam for the chance to launch through them and yet that doesn't work either.

Livid doesn't come close to describing how I feel about this, when does CCP wake up and fix this problem?

Yeah, I get this - then about 5 minutes later, the account finally loads, crashing any sessions that have started in the meantime.

Thanks heaps for the "fix" CCP.

I can only say to other players to exercise the patience that you have been forced to endure up to this date.

I don't know if this fixes the problem, but the easy way to run multiple accounts is to create a symbolic link for each additional account. As these are links, you only need to update 1 copy of the game, but each link has its own settings. To make the links, run the command prompt as admin, browse to the folder Eve is installed in and type the following:

mklink /d Eve2 Eve

Eve is the name of the current Eve install
Eve2, or whatever you want to call it, is the name of the second install.
You will now have a new folder called Eve2 that looks like it is a complete install of Eve and runs as a separate copy of the game, but is just a link to the original install.

Restore to pre-patch status.

Fix patch.

Deploy later.

Much better then leaving all of your customers waiting around while your devs figure out what they screwed up.

I'm sure everyone would just love having to redownload an earlier version just to wait for a fix.

I guess time spent in downloading is still time spent... it's not like anyone's got anything to do, right?
