That's right.

Had to end sometime.

Here's the full OSX path for those interested. Open the prefs.ini file with TextEdit.

~/Library/Application Support/EVE Online/p_drive/Local Settings/Application Data/CCP/EVE/SharedCache/wineenv/drive_c/users/username/Local Settings/Application Data/CCP/EVE/c_tq_tranquility

I am currently away, traveling through time and will be returning last week.

Great option that should probably be implemented as an actual ingame option.

I'm having trouble finding the file though, this is what my AppData/CCP/EveOnline folder looks like :

There is nothing in the Launcher file except from a text file called "Log".
I'm using Windows 7 installed through Bootcamp. I also have enabled Windows to show hidden files.

Any ideas?

You went to %appdata%, not %localappdata% (You can see it in the path, you're at roaming, not local)

Oh ok, thanks for the reply. Reading is hard :D

It's working perfectly now ! Will make for a much easier grid reading when in fights.

Thanks !

You'll need to take a look at the full file names for the two folders at the top, it will be one of those two.

Unfortunately Gudni cannot pass laws.

Because it would be the VERY BEST LAW IN THE HISTORY OF EARTH!

While we're on the subject of ship labels, can we get the Floating Combat Text to ignore line breaks in ship labels?
It would enable us to have 2+ line ship labels without breaking the floating combat text formatting completely.

Thanks for posting this info but after reading the warning, no thanks.

Definitely don't want to activate a possible Apocalyptic Event.

Besides that, the UI has more than enough intel happening in it already.


yep, not a chance I'd use it with that disclaimer. I remember when they turned it on by default one update and it was kinda nice for scenes with only a few ships, but if you end up in a blob, or at a trade hub you will just be overwhelmed with text on the screen.
