Version 1.18.2 has been released. It fixes the overlay text disppearing once the preview has been focused. The Win10 bug is still open as I do not possess a copy of Windows 10. After the holidays and I get myself an apartment I'll look into getting a copy of Win10 running on my old desktop and see if I can pin down the error there. My advice for the time being is to stick to fully released Operating Systems in case there is some "unintended feature" in the current Win10 beta code.

V1.18.2

I really like the track client location option!

However, if you don't have monitors of the exact same size, it won't work, because it will successfully move the client, without altering the resolution. The window is then squeezed to fit inside the smaller screen, which is of course ugly (and hard to fix, because the actual cursor position won't match the mouse on screen).

So.. Genious idea, but at the moment it is useless to me :)

Edit: Also, still have this issue where switching too quickly, or switching to an EVE client by clicking the preview, while having a non-eve client focused... Successfully switches, but then one or more of the preview cease to be displayed, with only the preview name remaining without an actual preview below it.

Window movement: that is Windows, not us. The way around that problem is to use either multiple client installs or symlinks so you can have multiple client sizes. Though I see your point. I'll see if we can save client sizes as well.

Switching too quickly: when did this start? What version are you using? I recently made the overlay text always on top. I tested it for about an hour and didn't have any problems. Also, what OS are you using?

Hello, apologies for the likely silly question, but do I need to be running the Eve clients in windowed mode for this to work? Works fine if in windowed mode, but in full screen the preview windows don't show up.

Thanks

Yes, the clients must be in windowed mode.

EclipleWay: for some reason your computer is trying to put the layout file in System32. Where did you place the program after you extracted it? Have you tried running the program as Administrator?

You can extract the file to anywhere you wish. The location of the EXE file does not matter. Though, preferably a file where the program can write to the layout XMLs. Personally, I have mine in my CCP folder D:\Games\CCP. If you're running the program from inside your Programs Folder or Programs Folder (x86) be sure to run it as admin as Win7 and Win8/8.1 don't always like programs writing to Program Files.

  • 1. Download and extract the contents of the .zip archive to a location of your choice
    2. Start up both EVE-O Preview and your EVE Clients (the order does not matter)
    3. Adjust settings as you see fit

    Nothing too terribly new in this update. Just a bug fix.

    Direct Download

  • What's New -- Version 1.18.3
  • Fixed the overlay text persisting after a client was closed (....again)

    Unless some unforeseen bug (re)appears, this will be the last update from me for a bit. Since I accepted a full-time position I must go look at apartments (been at my parents far too long for everyone's liking) and sadly that must take precedence. Hopefully by the end of the month I'll have time to dive back into the code for improvements and new features along side StinkRay.

    EDIT: This would include finally getting a chance to check out Takagamu's fork which I have been meaning to look at for over a month when we had the repository switcheroo https://github.com/EnterTheMaelstrom/eve-o-preview

    Interesting thing happened, the previews work fine when completely logged in, but trying to use them while in the character select screen makes all the screens overlap. Which for me using it the first time was the place I was trying to get everything set up before actually heading into the game.

    Hope that will help anyone that might run into that problem.

    Yea, unfortunately the application reads the title of the window to know which to put where. Since at the character selection screen they are all called EVE, they get the same setting. You will need to be logged in before setting it up. Or, if really adventures, you can manually edit the layout file.

    FoxFour is correct. I'm not sure there's a "better" way to do this and keep the simplicity of the program. But if anyone has ideas, I'm all ears.

    Hi Makari Aeron,

    Unfortunately, for some unknown reason (at least for me), even after update to net 4.52 I am still getting the same error as ultimatefox02. I am still using version 1.3 without problem, but I would like to upgrade to 1.8.

    And a big thank you for your time and efforts.

    Castelo

    here are some solutions that I found while googling for "CLR20r3"

    --Try running as Administrator.
    --Do you happen to have Win7 Media Center installed? Try repairing or uninstalling/reinstalling it.
    --Try repairing your .NET framework.
    --Remove .NET 2.0 and have windows reinstall it
