hey I had this problem too, just put the "EVE Online Buckingham.app" (or whatever copy you have to use for the test server) on the desktop and in terminal type "sudo open ~/Desktop/EVE\ Online\ Buckingham.app --args /server:87.237.38.69" unfortunately I'm having the same problem as everyone else where the launcher wont work or something because of the server being down.

I make YouTube videos and so on... Watch me do silly things here:

Does anybody know why the test server is down so much lately?

Buckingham is currently our main test server for Retribution, which results in a lot of different testing needs (including restarts), small updates and configuration changes. The last downtime was for example for changing the configuration of the server nodes and in a few minutes the daily downtime will start.

Can't get Buckingham to work either.. The launcher seems to work now and updated something, I login as normal though have problems after the login window.. It takes ages when you click on the 'Enter Game' button, then when I get in I get a grey blank screen..??

Further to what I've said above, from the grey screen it takes several minutes before I enter the game so I have managed to get in, though the game is unusable because of colossal amounts of Lag...

I really don't know what your last patch did, but neither my son or I can use the game, it's ridicules..!!

I am wait minutes for everything to change or appear that I click on, like tabs or to send a message in the chat, to look in my cargo, change ships or the ship hanger, that's if it opens at all....WTF..!!Twisted


WHAT HAS GONE WRONG..??

I am unable to analyze what happened with your client without seeing logs from it. Please try first to restart your computer (which might fix the issue) and then send a bugreport from in-game (press F12, the last option) , which will include the needed logs.

I will try and get this in game log, though that's if I can actually get into the game? The other thing is I'm a MAC User and I don't think F12 is the same for MAC..?

Did you add "/server:87.237.38.69" to the target field of your shortcut?

Copied tranquility folder on separate partition adjusted shortcut to be able to acces buckingham, works fine.
Every time i doubleclicked my Buckingham shortcut it loads testserver, EVE shortcut it loads Tranquility.

Fired it up after some time. Needed to patch the testserver with Retribution after doubleclicking Buckingham shortcut. System patched I now have new 'Retribution' testserver. Tried some stuff. Logged and wanted to go back to Tranquility, doubleclikced EVE shortcut, keeps going back to Buckingham. So both shortcuts now end up on Buckingham

Couldn't find solution, completely uninstalled both clients and downloaded tranquility again. Would love to have testserver acces again, but don't feel like needing to download client and re-install EVE again in case patching the testserver will break both installations.

What can I do to prevent this?

hello

I have a problem with the test server (buckingham) concern is that when I log on the server I always have an authentication error but eve copy in another directory and then create a shortcut with / server: 87.237.38.69.

I always have a data error incorrect, but when I log on the normal server there is no problem.

CCP Habakuk, I am unable to get in the game and issue a bug report, I also don't think F12 works for MAC users..?

How come that my son and I were both in the Buckingham server regular with no problems and using the game as normal, then since the last patch but one, neither of us can get in the game, or more to the point. We can get into the game if we wait a considerable time for it to do every operation after the login window...!!

At least 5 minutes on clicking the "Enter Game" button to going into the game..!!

Once in the game we are presented with a grey screen and wait 10 - 15 minutes or more for the initial user window to open, then another 5-10 minutes of the Character, Chat, items, ship boxes to appear in the window..?

Then you click on a tab for say chat or email and you wait 5 minutes or more for that to appear..!!


WTF has happened with the test client, is this extreme lag or is there something more serious..!!


My Son and I can't be the only players experiencing these problems..!!


What's going to be done about this?

I don't think having a nearly 14gb file on the desktop is a good thing..!!

I have mine in Applications... Named: 'EVE Online Buckingham.app' and my command for Terminal is: open /Applications/EVE\ Online\ Buckingham.app --args /server:87.237.38.69

This works for me, well up until the last patch but one then I dunno WTF they've done..???

Ok for mac users with the terminal "no such file or directory" issue, I just tried this right now: I added a space between the "open" and the "target app" and then between the "target app" and the "server command". Basically following the steps on evelopedia but adding a space between each of the 3 main parts of the command. I'm not sure if it will work but it has opened the launcher and is creating a patch right now.
Will keep you posted. Smile

Edit: THIS WORKS! I am now logged in to Bucky after the launcher downloaded a 66MB patch (size may vary, I'm guessing).
Hope this Helped.
