Anyone has an info when this windows not drawn bug on windows xp will be fixed?

It works somehow with one client (at least mostly), but I would love to use more than one again, and windowed mode is not really a turn on

Probably never. Windows XP was released October 25, 2001. Making the game XP compatible would be working backwards. It is time to upgrade to 7.

why are you still using XP? Come on even schools are upgrading to 7 now.

Working fine here, Windows XP, dual clients, no worries.

I have XP64bit and had this issue. I cleared both my cache and reset all my settings and everything seems to be working well, at least for me.

When it comes to PvP, I am like a chiwawa hanging from a grizzley bears pair of wrinklies for dear life.

While we're on the topic, when is eve going to be optimized to run 8 clients on my Toshiba T1000?

Can you at least try to upgrade to Windows Vista? I can't imagine anyone using XP for anything these days as that system is already over 10 years old for crying out loud. It is literally as old as Eve Online.

Windows XP will be fully supported by M$ till 2014. It's a fine OS. Clear your cache and I bet you'll be fine.

I'll eat my hat if CCP isn't supporting it for years to come. It'd be downright foolish not to.

If anyone ever looks at you and says,_ "Hold my beer, watch this,"_  you're probably going to want to pay attention.

Nothing wrong with XP here. And I don't see any reason to upgrade to 7 for as long as XP works fine. Which it does.

Nothing wrong with my asbestos-insulated house here. And I don't see any reason to upgrade to modern standards as long as the asbestos works fine. Which it does.

Comparing Windows XP to asbestos to try to justify upgrading to a new OS is ridiculous.

There is nothing wrong with XP. As long as it continues to do what we need it to do we will continue to use it. Upgrading to the newest 'thingy' just because its new is silly.

nevermind .. win2k works pretty well too..

win vista, win 7 etc. got some "nice features" which are mostly useless and have double maybe even more requirements to even run.

PS .. i use win7 but that is just because i tried it once and was too lazy to go back after an month or so.

Anyway not sure if its an OS problem. Try what others told, or/and try run another client from another folder. Means multiple copies of EVE but i heard its how some use it. Since it was un-stable for them otherwise.

bolded is true, yet anything else is really just useless as neon tubes in your computer case.

Rest works just fine, altho it requires some tweaking and it works like an charm.
Talking about security and microsoft OS .. really ???

edit : actually event he bolded part is not true, since you can "tweak it" so it looks exactly same as win7, however -2GB RAM requirement.

Never touch a running system ;).

Win7 offers nothing over WinXP ... except MORE COLLORS.
I don't know a singel program, which does not work under XP except DX11 which noone need.

And it would take several DAYS for a full switch.

Why the hell can't I fitt capital repairs or shield booster on an Orca ... it's an CAPITAL ship!
