  • Galante Industrial Frachter "Kryos" als Trial Account möglich ? in Deutsches Forum

    In der Vergangenheit konnten die Skills für Industrial Ships wie die Kryos nicht auf Probeaccounts erlernt werden. Diese Einschränkung wurde aber bereits vor längerer Zeit aufgehoben und es ist kein Problem, die Industrial-Skills auf einem Probeaccount zu trainieren und die betreffenden Schiffe zu fliegen.

    Generell werden alle Skills, die nicht auf Probeaccounts erlernbar sind, als solche in Ihrer Beschreibung markiert (auch wenn der Account aktiviert wurde). Weiterhin wird für Probeaccounts auch direkt mit einem orangenem "E" angezeigt, wenn ein Skill in den Skillvorraussetzungen nicht auf Probeaccounts erlernt werden kann und der Account dafür aktiviert werden muss.

    Wie das auf einem Probeaccount aussieht und welche Einschränkungen für Probeaccounts bestehen kann auch im Help Center nachgelesen werden:

  • EVE und Steam in Deutsches Forum

    Da es scheinbar doch einige Missverständnisse in Bezug auf mit STEAM verbundene EVE-Accounts gibt....

    1) Charakter Transfers zu STEAM-Verbundenen EVE-Accounts: sind ohne weiteres möglich. Der dafür notwendige "Account"-Name kann in der Accountverwaltung eingesehen werden, indem man den grünen STEAM-Knopf zur Anmeldung verwendet und sich dann auf STEAMs Anmeldeseite mit den STEAM-Anmeldedaten anmeldet. Der Name erscheint dann anstelle des Anmelde-Knopfes oben rechts, im Format "STEAM::". Zwischenzeitlich besteht auch eine Option in der Accountverwaltung solcher mit STEAM verbundener Accounts, welche die Zuweisung eines Accountnamens sowie eines Passwortes erlaubt, womit diese Accounts danach auch ohne STEAM mit diesen Anmeldedaten wie nornale EVE-Accounts verwendet werden können. Wenn ein Accountname zugewiesen wurde, muss dieser als Zielaccount für Charaktertransfers zu diesem Account angegeben werden.

    2) Mehrere Accounts über STEAM:
    Während nur ein Account mit einem STEAM-Account verknüpft sein kann (durch den Kauf von EVE über STEAM nach dem 31.Mai 2013), kann man ohne weiteres andere EVE-Accounts über den durch STEAM installierten Client starten, indem die Option "Benutzerkonto Wechseln" im Launcher verwendet wird. Dies ist allerdings nur dann möglich, wenn der Launcher nicht mit dem Start des Spiels geschlossen wird und der mit Steam verknüpfte EVE-Account zuerst gestartet wurde (es sei denn ein Accountname wurde vergeben).

    3) eine nachträgliche Verknüpfung von bereits existierenden Accounts mit STEAM ist leider noch nicht möglich. Eine EVE-Installation kann aber ohne weiteres als externes Spiel der STEAM-Bibliothek hinzugefügt und zur Anmeldung andere EVE-Accounts verwendet werden.

  • Der Download benötigter Daten in Deutsches Forum

    Weiterhin wird von uns auch der Offline-Installer angeboten, der ebenfalls einen kompletten Resource-Cache anlegt, wodurch der Client entsprechend in der Regel keine weiteren Resourcen herunterladen muss:

  • Bei Start kein Tutorial aktiv in Deutsches Forum

    Das Fenster, welches beim ersten Start angezeigt wurde, kann erneut geöffnet werden indem man im "Gelegenheiten"-Infopanel am linken Bildschirmrand auf "Zeige alle Gelegenheiten" klickt.

    Es handelt sich hierbei um das neue Tutorial, welches derzeit ca. 50% aller neuen Accounts angeboten wird und die Aura-Tutorials ersetzt. Mehr zum Thema Gelegenheiten kann im folgenden Dev-Blog gefunden werden:

    Eine deutsche Zusammenfassung dieses Blogs befindet sich hier:

    Eine Exportfunktion für das Charakteraussehen besteht leider nicht.

  • Raffeneriebug !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bitte schnell beheben!!! in Deutsches Forum

    Wie bereits durch Darkblad herausgefunden und gepostet, handelt es sich hierbei um einen (uns zwischenzeitlich bereits bekannten) Anzeigefehler in den Tooltips des Reprocessing-Fensters.

    Es bestehen hier 2 Punkte, welche leider einige Verwirrung stiften:

    1. Mit Oceanus wurde die Anzeige der Effizienz im Tooltip auf eine Dezimalstelle nach dem Komma erweitert. Dies sorgt z.B. dafür, dass nun statt der gerundeten 70% die (immer noch gerundeten) 69.6% angezeigt werden. Der eigentliche zugrundeliegende Wert ist unverändert.

    2. Das Tooltip berücksichtigt aktuell leider keine Reprocessing-Implantate, selbst wenn diese als Bonus im Tooltip gelistet werden. Es handelt sich hier allerdings lediglich um einen Anzeigefehler.

    Wie es auch den Werten im "Produktionsergebnis" entnommen werden kann, wird die eigentliche Wiederverwertung die Reprocessing-Implantate korrekt berücksichtigen.

  • Kronos to require Mac OS X 10.7 or higher? in EVE Technology and Research Center

    As Darryn Lowe already suspects, 10.7.5 will indeed be the new minimum requirement (in fact, it already is listed as minimum requirement on our System Requirement page) and you will have to upgrade your MacOS accordingly to play EVE after the Kronos Release. This had also been announced to be happening via our news system a few months ago:

  • Windowed; ohne Border ; beliebige Größe in Deutsches Forum

    Der "Borderless Window"-Modus heisst bei uns "Fixiertes Fenster". Eine eigene Auflösung kann hier eingestellt werden, indem man zunächst in den normalen Fenstermodus wechselt und dort die gewünschte Größe einstellt bevor man auf "Fixiertes Fenster" umstellt.

    Die Umstellung auf "Fixiertes Fenster" wird das Client-Fenster in die linke obere Ecke des Bildschirms verschieben, es ist aber möglich das Fenster auch ohne die nun fehlende Titelleiste wie folgt an eine andere Position zu verschieben:

    * Rechtsklick mit gedrückter Umschalt-Taste auf das EVE-Symbol in der Windows Taskbar
    * "Verschieben" auswählen, und dann eine der Cursortasten drücken. Dadurch wird das Fenster an den Mauscursor "geheftet" und kann nun beliebig verschoben werden.
    * Ein linker Mausklick wird das Fenster entsprechend an der aktuellen Position ablegen

  • Offline mode in EVE Technology and Research Center

    I'm aware that this reply is very late for some and apologize for that delay, but we have been trying to find the reasons for this to happen to some people as well.

    If your launcher is not connecting and starting in offline mode, despite your connection being active and working fine, there is a few things that you can check:

    1. Are you starting the launcher from the correct location? Check your shortcut you use to start EVE, it should point to either "[eve path]\launcher\launcher.exe" or "[eve path]\eve.exe" as target and "[eve path]" as working directory (with [eve path] being the client installation folder accordingly, i.e. "C:\Program Files (x86)\CCP\EVE").
    Pinning the launcher to the task bar after launching it has also been known to cause this behavior as well as other issues.

    2. make sure that the launcher can access its info file, this can usually be seen in the launchers log file (which you can find under [eve path]\launcher\cache), as if the launcher can't get that file it will assume the connection being dead or otherwise unavailable, thus "Offline".

    To take the file Kyle Sev linked as an example, look for a line similar to the following:

    2013-11-20 11:20:49,313 - root - info - INFO - Getting info file from https://client.eveonline.com/patches/win_launcherinfoTQ_inc.txt

    This usually is followed by the request itself, and if the launcher remains offline, most likely by an error message of sorts. In Kyles case, he got:

    ConnectionError: HTTPSConnectionPool(host='client.eveonline.com', port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /patches/win_launcherinfoTQ_inc.txt (Caused by class 'socket.error': [Errno 10013] An attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions)

    Which indicates the launcher access to the file being blocked for some reason, in this particular case most likely the firewall software not liking the change of the launchers executable file after its update and blocking it accordingly.

    Another reason that we came across that caused the launcher to remain offline was an SSL certificate error while trying to load the same file, looking like this in the launcher log file:
    SSLError: [Errno 1] _ssl.c:499: error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed

    This particular error has happened with the ESET security software active, which seemingly did not let our SSL certificate through (we are looking into possible reasons for that behavior now as well), and our SSL certificate had to be added to ESETs exception list after making ESET ask what to do with new certificates.

    Hopefully this will help those that are still running into this issue, but of course let us know in a ticket (preferably one with the launcher log file created at the time of failure) if your launcher is still unable to connect or running into other issues.

  • Frage zum Account in Deutsches Forum

    Wenn du deinen Accountnamen noch hast und lediglich die Charakternamen brauchst um wieder in die Accountverwaltung zu kommen, dann fordere einfach ein neues Passwort an. Zum einen sollte das nach längerer Pause sowieso einmal getan werden, zum anderen bekommt man aber zusammen mit einem neuen Passwort auch die Namen der Charaktere auf dem Account mitgeteilt.

    Insofern kein Zugriff auf die am Account registrierte E-Mail mehr besteht, bleibt leider nur ein Ticket unter "Abrechnung und Account".

  • Spiel startet nicht in Deutsches Forum

    In Fällen, wo das Spiel nicht startet (gar nicht oder nur ein schwarzer Bildschirm), bitte auch gegebenenfalls im "DirectX"-Reiter der Launcher-Einstellungen "DX9" auswählen und dann das Spiel neu starten.

    Wir prüfen derzeit einige Meldungen, bei denen der DX11-Client auf einigen eigentlich DX11 fähigen Grafikkarten nicht korrekt zu starten scheint.

  • Frage bzgl dem 60 Tage Code aus der CE in Deutsches Forum

    Der 60-Tage New Account Code der CE funktioniert wie ein CD-Key. Das bedeutet:

    Ja, er kann auf Trial-Accounts angewendet werden, um diese zu aktivierern. ABER:
    Eine Anwendung auf Buddy-Trial-Accounts wird diese zwar aktivieren, resultiert aber nicht in einer Belohnung für den einladenden Account (wie für New-Account-Keys üblich, siehe https://secure.eveonline.com/Buddy/#terms-conditions)

  • Farbverzerrung bei nVidia Grafikkarten nach Windows 8.1 Update in Deutsches Forum

    Bei der Aktualisierung auf Windows 8.1 scheint der nVidia-Grafiktreiber den 3D-Stereoskopie-Modus automatisch zu aktivieren, was zu einer Rot/Cyan-Farbverzerrung in Spielen führen kann. Dieses Verhalten kann wie folgt behoben werden:


    • Die Tastenkombination Strg-T schaltet den 3D-Modus des Treibers aus (und bei Bedarf wieder an)
    • Eine Neuinstallation des Grafiktreibers wird diese Einstellung ebenfalls wieder zurücksetzen
    • Deaktivierung des 3D-Modus im entsprechenden Bereich des nVidia-Kontrollzentrums

  • Windows 8.1 Update makes eve look like its in 3D? in EVE Technology and Research Center

    The Stereoscopic Mode of the nVidia driver can also be toggled via the shortcut "Ctrl-T" (provided it was not changed in the driver) if you do not wish to restart EVE.

  • GM clarification on rewording of the Terms of Service in EVE Communication Center

    Last reply from me, before I really go back to watching mode for the thread (well, some sleep as well).

    greiton starfire wrote:
    New hard question. is this rule to protect those who have been imposted or those who have been scammed. who has the right to petition. if it is to protect the imposted, for groups who has the right to petition, the ceo, any line member, etc.


    Mostly this is in place for the ones that have been impersonated, though directly affected victims may of course report that as well.

    And while kind of unrelated on the issue of the thread itself, as for player run entities, the CEO/Directors (of the executor corporation) would be considered spokespersons for their respective entities, as is usually the case when those entities are directly affected as a whole. This is mainly to try and prevent larger player bodies to flood the ticket system with identical tickets. If none of those are online at the time to create a needed ticket for a report, it can of course be another member of the entity bringing an issue to our attention, but flooding the ticket system will usually result in closing the multiple tickets with a request to chose one person with the authority to deal with the matter to continue with.

    It could be the case that they want to avoid any act which allows for the potential identification of alts from their actions. Going back to the example where actually being an alt is treated differently:

    The scammed player petitions Joe
    - Gets reimbursed. Does business Abdiel as normal.
    the scammed player petitions Phill
    - No reimbursement > Scamee knows Phill = Abdiel thus both are labelled as scammers > Abdiel burns 2 characters since he was effectively outed by GM actions

    Which demonstrates why the overreaching use, rather than simply naming, seems like a bad rule.


    Bingo. That is one of the other reasons that both situations are handled identically.

    What if Abdiel Kavash directly confirms that Phill McScammer (his alt) is in fact his alt (e.g. starting a private conversation with the mark using his main and saying "Phill McScammer is my alt")? Does that still qualify as impersonation?


    Why would you even bother with the alt in that situation? You can just do whatever you need to do with Abdiel Kavash then. The character Phil technically still impersonates Abdiel.

    Except that Phill never claimed to be anything he wasn't. Phill didn't claim to be the character Abdiel Kavash, he claimed to be an alt of Abdiel Kavash - which he was. At no point Phill told a lie. Does "impersonation" cover "truthfully stating the nature of a character"?

    Thanks for the communication, I never actually expected a GM reply.


    Both characters Phil and Joe used the name Abdiel Kavash to give of the impression they were somehow related to him. The cases are effectively identical.

    Yes, with Phil the actual statement of him being an alt is true, but the actual act of the character using the name of Abdiel Kavash does not differ in any capacity at all.

    To throw the ball back to you:
    In the hypothetical situation that we were to take no action in such cases, you'd be rather annoyed about Joe once you got wind that he's ruining your hard earned reputation, wouldn't you? Given that such characters as Joe usually don't go about wandering in space very often, you'd have no real recourse of hounding him down until the end of time either.

    Help me understand this then:

    I, Abdiel Kavash, run a legit 3rd party business. Over the years I gain the trust of hundreds and a multibillion empire.

    CASE 1: A new character, Joe McScammer, completely unaffiliated with me, decides to make some extra money. Joe McScammer convoes a customer of AbdielCorp and claims to be an alt of Abdiel Kavash. The poor mark falls for it and gives Joe McScammer ISK thinking he's sending it to Abdiel Kavash.

    In this case, Joe McScammer is guilty of "[using] the character name of another player to impersonate or falsely represent his or her identity", and if petitioned by the unsatisfied customer is prone to getting banned.


    CASE 2: I decide that I want to make some extra money off my past customers, without necessarily having to provide any extra services. I create a new character, Phill McScammer, on my account. I then go talk to a past customer of AbdielCorp and I claim that Phill McScammer is an alt of Abdiel Kavash. Customer falls for it, sends me their money and never sees it again.

    Since different characters are treated as separate entities, is this judged the same as case 1? Is Phill McScammer prone to getting banned for impersonating Abdiel Kavash? I.e. can I get banned for claiming that Phill McScammer is an alt of Abdiel Kavash?


    I suppose you have read my example, so you can answer that yourself as it is pretty much the same thing with different names.

    Abdiel Kavash wrote:

    Can I be banned for telling the truth?


    Your character Phill McScammer impersonated Abdiel Kavash, the same way as Joe McScammer did, thus gets it from us the same way if reported. From our point of view, as well as from a victims, there is no technical difference between those two cases of a character impersonating another.

    So, if Olli's alt were named Humbaby, and he claimed to be Olli's alt to faciliate a scam, and actually was Olli's alt on the same account, you're saying that would be allowed? Because before we all thought that was fine, but your last post made that sound like it would be bannable, and now you've muddied the waters and I don't know anymore.


    The example I gave is clear enough to cover that, the short answer is "No, not allowed". If you were under the impression that this was permitted, you were going off on incorrect assumptions.

    Nathalie LaPorte wrote:

    Also, will players who made similar names for their alts, not knowing that the impersonation policy applied to themselves, be eligible for free renames?


    No, just having the name without reports of malicious activity will do nothing. As for reporting yourself (the only thing you could do in that case without malicious activity of the accounts), I think I covered that well enough, too.

    There is a VERY big difference between account sharing and saying to someone in game 'oh yeah, i'm totally person X's alt, how can i scam you today?'
    though apparently not anymore under the new wording...

    frankly this is another case of really bad PR where a simple clarification is all that is needed to sort it out.
    basically, if i claim to be someone's alt in game, will I get banned?


    Let me quote the relevant sentence, the EULA paragraph is not only about sharing, but also usage of names from other players in general:

    Quote:

    ...
    No player may use the character name of another player to impersonate or falsely represent his or her identity.
    ...


    The "use" in that sentence is not limited to using another players name as a name for a character, it includes the use in chats etc. and always has.

    To your question: It's to broadly formulated, really. If that someone you claim to be complains, or a victim of malicious action of yours due to this claim, and we can verify that you claimed to be that someone's alt, then yes, you'll fall under this policy and will get warnings (or if you just can't stop doing it, eventually get banned). Reason: you are still using his name to (actively) impersonate him, just not as the name of your alt.

    Your alts claiming to be alts of your main and doing nothing wrong otherwise would as such only get you in trouble in case of extreme schizophrenia and you reporting your own alt from your main, in which case I would likely just facepalm over here if I were to get that report.

    Now, when there's malicios intent is involved, we're kind of back to the "self impersonation" thing that I wrote about earlier. I realize that this needs some more... clarification, so I'll grace that one with some more detail because of the confusion that specific bit has been causing (which, for that bit, is honestly completely my own fault):

    Fictitious character "OIIi"(that is 3 "i" total, for the rest of this example player "A") has a good reputation and is trusted throughout, makes a lot of money.
    Fictitious character "Olli" (now, that's 2 "L", let's call him "B") decides to ride on the trust of A in order to relieve some fools of their money.

    I am certain that everyone can agree that this is a primary and obvious case of impersonation, which has always resulted in B getting a rename, warning and his gains (if any) reversed as soon as he's been brought to our attention by player A or a victim. All well and good, right?

    B will always get that treatment. Yes. Even if A is on the same account. And that is what I wanted to refer to when saying "yes, you actually can impersonate yourself". It's an edge case.

    I am aware that this is not the only thing and that discussion will be ongoing about the rest of the points, both here as well as with the CSM, but I will slink back into the shadows and continue to watch this thread. Also, I would like to thank to keep it relatively civil despite the agitation this is obviously causing.
