Awesome. I'll mark it as possibly resolved. Hopefully in 2 weeks or so I'll get to run some of my own tests on Win10 to make sure everything is 100%.

There is one thing, I'm not to sure if it applies to just Windows 10.

If I switch using EVE-O it remembers the size of the window, however if I minimize the window and bring it up using eve-o its not remembering the window size.


I haven't had that problem myself with Win8.1. I'll give it a try when I get home from work.

Have you logged into the accounts first? Because of how the program works, it takes the window title to manipulate the eve clients. As such, if you're not logged in, all the windows have the same window title.

Alrighty folks, I've moved into my new apartment (mostly) and I'm going to start going through the sugguestions/todo list. No promises to timeframe, but know that I'm back to working on it!

Hi there,

I was just wondering if this will work with 1 Eve account and 1 Steam Eve account?

Thanks :)

i haven't tested it and you're free to do so and let me know your findings. Though I suspect you should be fine.

hey! i know ive posted in here about how awesome eve-o previewer is (basically because it is awesome!) was wondering if you could look through the code of keeping the preview windows on top of other windows vs not, as ive been having issues with the windows not behaving themselves in these instances.

i had the option checked until recently changing it, now i have the option unchecked but sometimes one of the preview windows keeps itself on top until i click the preview window to select the active client and then bring the non eve client window back up.

anyway thank you for a great product!

I see that windows like a really functional way to keep viewing what it happening while you enjoy the internet of things.

of course would be good and extra option in the setting for doze that don't like this.

And the previous request for hotkey assignment to the windows would be very nice, I second the motion....


I thought that would be nice too, so I added some very basic support for hotkeys. I don't have access to the repo, but there should be a new version out soon. If not, feel free to bug me for an updated .exe (stranger danger!)

Click forwarding on the window so we can chat/activate mods without having to open the game window.

Obv don't broadcast the keys to all clients tho as that would be an exploit, Just the preview window you are clicking on.

I'd want to get that clarified by a Dev or GM. That sounds like a gray area, I prefer to aviod that so people don't get banned. CCP FoxFour, thoughts?

I'd honestly avoid all types of hotkeys, mouse overs, windowed key passthroughs, etc. I understand the need to make the program bigger and better, but ultimately it should stay and remain as a preview window, not a method of assisting ships to do other jobs by using key passthroughs and avoiding the need to switch windows.

Sometimes simple is the right option.

Yaay!!!!

I'm not really a fan of the key passthroughs myself. I do kinda like hotkey for window switching if you don't want the preview function (or if you want both).

Don't see the window switch as a problem.
