Not sure when the blank character creator was introduced, but I love it.

my main 3 gripes with eve mon atm are these:

1 the skill bar at the bottom
it interferes with every game i open if eve mon is not minimized and also affects some websites when "above" the eve mon window so to have evemon in the background is a pain in the ass coz the bar shows through and then "drags" on websites
is there a way to disable this bar from showing up?

2 the amount of time it takes eve mon to start
it takes approximately 30 seconds to a full minute to start eve mon even if opened before in a windows session (ie not restarting windows/pc)
i have 3 chars loaded and 2 accounts loaded all 3 chars have plans made (2 plans are over 2 years and 5 are 1 year or more long total plans i think i have 20)
it still took along time to load when first installed on my pc after a full reformat and reinstall of windows (windows xp home SP3 fully up to date / intel duel core / gegorce 240gt / 2 gig ram)

3 skill planner speed
after adding approximately 20-30 skills the planner window starts slows down considerably (adding 40 it REALLY slows down) and for some reason slows down my computer (comp details above) also adding remap points enhances this problem
(when i say skills i dont mean per different skill ie targeting then caldari frig i mean caldari frig 1-4 then another skill to 4 etc)

other than these 3 gripes i find eve mon INVALUABLE

1. It's GDI+ issue, can't do anything about it. Some user reported that GC drivers updating fixed the issue.

2. On my machine EVEMon starts in no longer than 5 sec (5 accounts, 12 toons). Apparently your HDD is really slow.

3. Consider chopping your plan into smaller ones. Having all in one, is counter-productive as you figured.

Found your problem. Your cores should be working together rather than duelling.

Also, evemon for president.

I still have not read anything about a new version that is compatible with the new api system. Is there an estimate on when it will be out?

See my post above.

  • Close EVEMon (important).
  • Go to the EVEMon homepage.
  • On the right side you'll find a ZIP archive download called "Latest Snapshot". Today's snapshot can be found here.
  • Download the ZIP archive and unpack its contents to your EVEMon installation folder overwriting the existing files.
  • Then start EVEMon.
  • If you did it right, you'll see a warning about old settings, asking you to backup the previous file.
  • Do so, if you want to.
  • You're ready to use - don't forget to update/add the new API keys (same way you did it before).

One important last note:
If you've enabled automatic updates, you'll download the stable/final release once it's available. The version mentioned above should be considered "in development", so there might be some bugs or some features might be broken. However I haven't noticed any issues so far, so you should be fine using it. (Usual license terms etc. still apply, e.g. you do it at your own risk, etc.)

In case you encounter any issues, feel free to send me an EVE Mail or write me in Twitter. If you encounter bugs, you should report them in the official bug tracker.

So I don't know if this thread deals with issues. I just updated my evenmon (It prompted me to update. After that I lost all of my API keys, and when I try to re-add them it says they are expired. My laptop copy (which I have ignored the update) is still working fine.

You have to make the NEW API key at: https://support.eveonline.com/api they call it: Customizable API keys
Use that one and you are all set.

The two most common mistakes:

1. Using an old key and not a new Customizable API Key (CAK). If the key indicates Security Level, you are using the wrong key (an old legacy API key)!

2. Using the ID from an old legacy API key with a Customizable API key's Verification Code, i.e. mixing the two.

How much would I have to donate to get support for corp keys, so I can see corp jobs in a POS? Big smile

Never noticed it before, could be new; why is there a speech bubble next to my active ship name in the main window?

Hover it and it will tell you your current location (as provided by the API).

I am having issues with getting my API into EveMon. Every time I do it I get 'API has expired'. I have made numerous attempts to 're-validate' my key but still get the same error. I just came back to Eve after about a year off. What am I doing wrong here??

BTW, that character appraiser works fine with ID and key... What?

Thx

== Enhancements ==
* Added support for Corporation type API keys. Corp Market orders and Industry jobs issued by a character are again available.



Ok Ive added a corporate API key with an industry jobs mask to evemon. But Im not seeing any corporate industry jobs. Am I doing something wrong?

Well, I updated my Evemon just now and every time I try to import my old settings with this character and a blank one I keep getting this error message: le error. I'm not sure what is wrong, but every time I import my older settings it throws this error. However starting from scratch throws no error messages.

EDIT: Just tried the snapshot version and it fixed it, so, well, guess it's okay.
