So cool program, but one major issue on Windows 10 (also had it on Windows 7 but it only happened occasionally): When you minimize clients as you normally would in Windows and then open reopen them by clicking the preview windows rather than their actual instances on the taskbar, the window is resized to some asinine default size upon reappearing and that I can't figure out. Doesn't seem to be a value for it in the XML doc unless I'm misunderstanding the fields. Any help?

I was not aware that was happening. Erm, no I don't have any idea why it would do that. That is quite odd

It has to have some tie-in to the initial size of the application window because those are the dimensions it's reverting back to.

Any thoughts on the matter? I'd love to help you but alas, I'm only a Java developer and not good at C variants

what u describe sounds like the thing happends to me when im doing what u, but it only seems to happen when i have one client in another monitor with difrent resolution. sometimes its just put a tiny icon into the thumbnail.. sometimes rezises the one client bit in the thumbnail and puts a white bars at the bottom to fix the space ..

I honestly have no idea why it's doing that.. Then again, I don't recommend minimizing the clients.

So it's a sad day to post this, but with how work is going (ie: super busy) and the changes to certain things in EVE now and projected in the future I'm essentially retiring from EVE. I'm dropping all my accounts except for my main (this one) and will no longer need to use a program like EVE-O Preview. And since IRL work is where I mainly made progress on this program and I have no more time, I've essentially stopped all development on this. Does it work? Yes. Are there bugs? Yes. But that's why the source code is there. What I can say is that if CCP improves the game back to the point that I actually *ENJOY* EVE again, I'll be back. It's a sad day in my book. I've loved this game for nearly 7 years but I discovered last week that I no longer care about it.

I'll try to answer any questions yall have on EVE-O Preview, but it won't be regularly and I won't be tinkering on the program most likely. Fly safe space pals.

You're all quite welcome. I'll be quite honest, it's the IRL issues at the moment more than anything. But if I'm not enjoying the game, I can't justify 6 accounts and if I dont' have multiple accounts, I can't really test this program, now can I? I'm going to coast on one account until 2017 when the citadels finish and the mining gets updated and see the state of the universe.

So for some reason Windows wont open the program so i had to downgrade it to 1.17 and now when i move the preview boxes they just stack and wont let me move then and place them around the screen where i want them. Any help from anyone would be great. I would love to use this with all 7 accounts on 2 screens.

Thanks

I now can get the program to open and it makes the smaller preview boxes. But when i drag one to my second screen they all snap under each other. When i move one they all follow. Ive tried different older ver. and they all do the same. move one and they all move. Ive been googling to see if it a windows issue but i cant seem to find a fix. Like i said i had it working yesterday so i did a restore to see if that would help and nothing. 1 of 2 problems fixed.

I actually have the same issue. My preview windows seem to be stacking and so I can't arrange them. I'm on Windows 10.

I've had that issue since day one. Sometimes all the previews stay seperate but, most of the time, they are stacked on top of each other.
