Work is pending for the fall where support will explicitly break. Those changes will be deployed without further notification.
As some may have noticed those changes were deployed on 2 Nov. The old launcher now doesn't display a login box anymore and various other features in it have been disabled. A couple of things will continue to work until Jan when we sunset the old launcher's backend.

IF YOU CANT USE THE WINDOWS 10 FREE UPGRADE (Even from HACKED Versions this WORKS!!!!) YOU'RE Doing it wrong.

Thank you CCP For ending legacy device support.

I guess this is a bit of a complaint.

Before citadels I could run two clients with max settings and adaptive anti aliasing (setting on my amd card). I had great graphics and no jaggies. (aliasing) Eve looked great and I was happily running at 50-60fps on both clients.

Post citadels... Now I need to turn off post processing and switch off adaptive anti aliasing on my card (downgrade to standard multipsampling AA) to get a framerate above 30 fps. Which means eve is now full of jaggies (aliasing) Is fairly unsatisfactory.

I have AMD r9270x 2gb card, 8gb of ram and runnig at 2.6 ghz.

What on earth did you guys do to up the system requirements so much !

I waited till the last day to do the free upgrade to avoid being a beta tester as much as possible. Tried it for a month and found it to be slower than 7 with more issues and little quirks, decided to reinstall win7 again.
