Not my intention to hijack the thread or anything with this, but since this is the apparent thread for all issues that are EVE Launcher I thought it'd be appropriate just to keep here.

I did a little bit of research over the past day or two, and since the EVE Launcher was causing me so many problems, I just went and made my own damn launcher and patcher GUI. Although its not as pretty as the official launcher, I figure since it seems to consistently patch things right I'd share it with everyone. While it works right for me, your mileage my vary and I imply no warranty of any kind to its reliability (it shouldn't brick your client, but if it does, its your risk to take).

That said, it should automatically check for client updates and if it does see an update available it will notify you, and with a single click automate the process of installing said update.

Screenshot: Link
Virus Total: Link
Download: Link

Download includes source code and binaries. Notable caveats are that everything is English only, it pulls its patches from the same links you see in the original post for this thread so it might not be able to patch the client right away, it doesn't support the Mac version, and it only patches the client (not the launcher). It *should* run natively on non-Windows platforms with Mono, but I can't say for sure as it will depend on the environment.

But hopefully the official launcher will be fixed up soon enough, so this won't be necessary in the future.

EDIT: Updating the virus total and download links because I noticed a weird threading bug.
EDIT: Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that its a .NET application. You'll need either .NET Framework 4.0 or Mono 2.8.x (Mono is a bit iffy, though).

When i run the launcher/eve/or shortcut it says "Program too big to fit into memory" if i run the repair tool it runs in an endless loop of repairing that *fails to apply anything* tried disabling firewall that helped, but still the same error message anyone got any solutions, have this same problem?

FIXED! i ran the repair tool for about 12 hours and finaly it fixed it, ran the launcherupdater which failed at step 6 about 7 times then crashed, so then i downloaded the updated launcher from the earlyer posts and ran that which before had just turned off when client launched, this time worked hope that helps any1.

The only problem I am facing here in SE Asia is the Download Speed for the Patch. File Size is 300MB but I am downloading since a few hours and just finish 5.8%. All other kind of downloads I do is fast - so this can rule out. I doubt there is a Mirror here available.

Yet again all methods fail so I had to resort to *uninstall-download payloadfiles-reinstall* to get the game.

A client update is available and will now be installed.

- Escalation 1.0.2 client update #2

Click here for details about this update.

Press 'OK' to continue.

i refuse it, don't want DL it and wait 12hours to play...

Your client is currently running an obsolete update and you have chosen not to install the most recent update.It is not possible to connect to the server with the currently installed update and if you continue it will be removed from your client. Are you sure you want to uninstall your current update?

Dear CCP...
Where is the Build 367346 patch ?

Is it possible to dream about a torrent file to help russians, asians, australians to patch Eve fast like americains/europeans ?

I really getting very irritated and disappointed, every new patch you ccp release i have to reinstall the game, i get to log in at work, now when i reach home i am facing the issue of not able to launch the launcher and keep getting the cmd window pop out and disappearing in 0.5 sec saything this "The program is too big for the memory" what is this??? really please explain, my laptop with 2gb of ram is able to dl the patch with some issue but at the end of the day i get it done........

do i really need to uninstall the game and dl the lastest client to play this game????? ever since the patch at 24th apr, i guess everyone is facing the issue of wasting time in this forum looking for ways to fix the issue...... we pay to play the game and not pay to fix issues...... So may i know we will get some kind of extension for all these issues cause by the release of the new patch????

Please stop releasing patches to fix issue when it will cause even more problem for people.... If you really want to release it, get your server image ready to bring it back to what it was before it cause more problem at least people will not spend more den 3 hours trying to fix and play the game....

well I was one of the few it seemed that was having only minor problems with the launcher but could get Repair to work when I manually run it. Now I get nothing it seems to uninstall and reinstall itself between Repair and trying to run the game and still not getting the actual patch. I am getting Tired of this fight and am seriously debating taking my 2 accounts and several friends that are having issues and moving on to another game that we might all enjoy that hopefully wont fail as much as CCP seems to be recently.

You guys are lucky to get anything with your launcher. Mine seems to have forgotten how to connect to CCP's servers. With a FRESH OS install (no firewalls active) and absolutely no Anti-virus programs or blockers of any kind.

Now we pay for a service that we can't use. Compensation should be in line for everyone. It's because of CCP's programing that keeps us from playing the game that we paid for. I feel bad for the people who have slower internet to suffer through this garbage. I hope someone loses their job for this.

Just what I wanted to do...come home and re-download the game to play. Almost 2 hours shot every time there's a patch that the launcher can't do anything about. Extensive testing should have been done before introduction to the public of ANY patch. I'm about to pull my account because of this. What's the point of paying for a game that I have to re-download 2 hours a day every damn day?!


EDIT: and I do have to do this on multiple machines. FML

Dear CCP...

After this post, #145 Posted: 2012.04.30 13:06
I restarted the game and play normally...

But now, i AM EXPERIENCING the same as #121 Posted: 2012.04.26 18:42 (i did experienced before this great event too)
I was thinking it solved for some hypothetical days...

Here a small part of my game launcher exceptionS EXPERIENCE
Quote:
File "socket.pyc", line 378, in read
File "httplib.pyc", line 552, in read
File "socket.pyc", line 378, in read
timeout: timed out


What happened ? few hours ago absolutely no problem...
How about the Test server ? I was thinking is not only to Test the Alliance's Blobs.

I hope you can figure that the complainers here are only a part of the iceberg, but we like EVE ONLINE.

What CCP is doing ? Trying to push out players to Diablo 3 ?

Ok CCP seriously WTF????

Launcher patches to a non-64bit compatible exe file?

At least it patched ok I guess, but really why should I have to run the program from the ExeFile.exe?

Ok went to the 64bit thread as well, no use having a patch file if you can't use launcher to patch it so useless info..

Went to the launcher forum posts and conducted the whole process to rename launcher folder repair it and then launched it, again it patches itself to a a non-64bit launcher and doesn't work.

CCP a solution would be nice......please???

Does anyone have an idea how to convince the launcher to apply an already downloaded patch before trying to make a connection to the server?

I've followed the instructions and have the patches in my directory. But starting the Launcher, I get a "cannot connect to server" error, apparently before it even tries to work with the patches that are sitting right there. (I can't solve the connection problem due to proxy issues, which is why I need the manual-patch workaround in the first place.)

if you open the launcher and go to the settings, on one of the tabs, you should see the option to import patch. for me it has been hit and miss as to whether or not that works though. Hope it helps.

Unfortunately, I don't get far enough for menus or tabs to appear. I click the launcher, and an exception message appears before anything else Ugh
