All interesting stuff of late, expanding the players game experience, TIDI, again interesting graphics amusement, not much good to you when all you want to do is jump a gate though and yes it's the same for all on the node and yes modules turn off...eventually, and you can still move about...in a fashion, and yes fights do get made and eventually ended, but is this really the only answer you can come up with, to turn a 20 minute fleet fight into a three hour crawl during which each warp gives you time to go make coffee or even walk the dog.

This Launcher thingy, all very nice for those pencil crazed programmers of yours to come up with, I know lets make the log in process long and tedious and fill there screens with this silly window as well as the normal loggin screen but have they tried logging back in after a crash, something EVE is very prone to do at times if you did not know it, and why for every client you open, and why does it not close after use, oversight perhaps, or just plain broken coding again.

One thing I would love you to do though, to make my game play far more enjoyable, would be a simple check box in the settings screen.

TO TURN OFF BLOODY TOOLTIPS.

Now go do something as simple as that and I,ll be impressed.

Has nothing to do with ESET

Using Symantec Fire wall and disabled it before running the updater.

Updater then corrupted all the files including the repair file.

Making second attempt at downloading the offline installer and the two RAR archives.

2.37 GB and 2.24 GB

The first attempt only downloaded 2 GB per file and failed to extract the archive.

Is the CCP server limiting downloads to 2GB?

Was wondering, did anyone try this on the Test Server first?

Haven't been on the test server for a while so lost track.

Ok... Launcher still doenst work, patch that should fix it didnt help at all, actually it messed up my game klient AGAIN, and i had to download new one AGAIN, and spend couple hours on settings AGAIN.

1. I have no freekin idea whats ESET and i want to play eve, without need of calling my internet provider asking to unlock something.

2. Get that crap away, and release it when it WORKS

3. Epic FAIL

Kinetic missiles are still called "trauma" not "scourge" as it says in the 1.5 patch, thats my only complaint Blink

Today when I logged in, all my settings were gone. Windows, Escape settings, etc... that sucks, but it happens... a lot? LOL

Yeah, I tend to have lost interest in EVE, for a number of reasons... not so much Cruciable per se, but somewhere over time, I think the "it" of EVE was lost (to me, that is) and I cannot seem to find it anywhere. The fact that most EVE thingies (game, website, etc.) have gotten a feel of "big corporate" to it. What I mean is, I no longer feel attached to the EVE universe as I did before. I have after all spent nearly 5 years playing (loads of fun).

Could this be me? Of course, but reading in the forums over these last few years, I don't think it is, just me. I may come back in the future (my yearly subscription is up this summer) but it's going to take more than fancy promises and luring movies/ads, I tell you that CCP. EVE has been a lot of fun for me, but I feel time has caught up, and with that for me to move on.

On an unrelated note, I got to tell you though, that EA did a number on Battlefield 3 as well. I bought it and it was such a hassle to install and get up and running (and keep it that way), it wasn't even funny. I mean, unless you are a hardcore Battlefield player (which I was, I suppose) I don't see how anyone could retain the interest. Initially it took me about 3 hours to finally get to play the game (had my old account since all previous Battlefields), and I had to reinstall the game twice in two days (meaning the Steam like engine, which was beta still, forced me to to that, claiming the game was yet to be installed) and that took the "steam" out of it. I enjoyed the game, just not the administration of being able to play it. Ridiculous, that was not a finished package, the game SURE, but the rest of it, pffft, lame at best!

Anyways... just another "trauma" case. Missile away

ok here is a trick to restoring your settings. if you go into eve's app data folder if it created a program files directory in there with a 2 in there delete it. eve will now use the right folder for its settings and your old settings will be restored.

I don't see the file you mean, but I get a message to "Please close the following process: exefile.exe" But for some reason, I can't delete this file even if I wanted to.

This silly Launcher worked the day after the patch, now three days later, I'm totally ******. Do I need to reinstall the whole game?

no just restart your computer so the files are not locked by anything.

go to C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\CCP\EVE

there will be a bunch files and folders .

c_program_files_(x86)_ccp_eve_tranquility contains your normal cache and your user settings and all their back ups. unfortunately for some reason this launcher ot patch creates a folder called c_progra~2_ccp_eve_tranquility which overrides that one. delete c_progra~2_ccp_eve_tranquility and you should be fine

Dear Mr/Ms/Mrs CCP developer that fixed the science and industry jobs window...you rock! I'm very happy that I don't have to go through setting the filters to corp labs every time I start a new research job :) That was pretty annoying when you're starting 20 jobs across multiple characters.

The patch for 1.4 worked for me, i.e. originally the release didn't work, but there was some patch to download, then use the repair tool and that got 1.4 to work. Currently 1.5 again doesn't work, and neither does the repair tool. The launcher freezes @ ~8% downloaded and then my computer goes slugish. It then leaves an unclosable Eve updater or something similar running that requires a reboot/log off to remove.

When I try running the launcher on a guest account it launches multiple instances of itself until it uses up all of my memory.


I use Sisi a few times every month and that launcher is fine, why is there a difference between the Sisi launcher and the Tranq launcher?

I understand that this patch worked for most people, but there are a number of us who haven't been able to log on for multiple days, can we please get some representative answer.


What is the suggestion that we should try? The repair tool doesn't work. Should we uninstall Eve and try a fresh download?

VERY impressed by the excellent progress on the Launcher 1.13

Started last week having to download a fresh install package . (roughly 4.5 GB )

Then only needed to disable my fire wall to start Launcher, but I could immediately turn it back on after start.

And now today, I don't even have to disable the fire wall , updated real smooth, patches are fast,

EXCELLENT WORK !

So yeah, 7GB download was required to get this working again. I use Sisi every couple of days and the Sisi launcher works fine, why is there a difference between the Sisi and Tranq launcher...

No thread for this so ill just post it. has anyone thought about making it so u can manage ur training que from the website like eve gate so if ur comp is down etc. u can still keep skills in the que from say a public comp or friends etc.? my comp is down atm till parts come in and i cant even turn it on but i could get on another comp to change skills out so that at least im still training something. cause in eve if ur not training something constantly ur wasting time. just something i thought could be intersting in a patch or something.
