i spent 2h30 to try to update my client...

try to by pass the "launcher" with /bin exefile.exe...
Yeah i can download it after some retry... but when the client inform me that it gonna be rebooted to patch, the launcher get launched Lol

So I tried this link... nothing to Download manually... Ugh
http://cdn1.eveonline.com/367569/EVE_Online_365966-367569_win.zip

and just now this magical launcher patched my client...

Arrow 2h30 spent to Download 9 mo ? or 19mo ? something like that...

Good luck others...
try to bypass the launcher to patch your lovely mmo manually but be sure where the file is going

- Just tried to re-install the game = Patch wont apply still

- Just tried to download from these links = Look like these are dead.

- Just tried to run the repair tool = bugged the client and now missing shitload of .dll files.

So what ?

Should I download new client everytime you patch this game ?

Paying for an account for that ?

Are you serious ?

Are you really releasing a game / patch and other stuff without testing it ?

Do you like your job or what ?


Seriously ... No I'm not gonna give my stuff to anyone. Just tired of this stuff...

Can't you do something "Normal" like releasing a non-bugged patch someday ?

Here's a workaround that works on my Mac. It may be worth a try on Windows.

I update my real client.

I then make a clone of it using the Clonemaker - link here http://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/Multiple_clients. This puts links for everything except the info.plist file, that point at the real client, in the first level of the application folder. The info.plist is apparently the buried one, not the one you will see on the first level.

I change the bundle name and prefs folder name to match the prefs folder I want to use, then I start that clone. It skips the launcher and starts Eve on my desired prefs folder. Both names have to be changed for this to work.

Note - at no time do I ever run my "real" client, because when I change the name of the prefs folder, the launcher downloads and "installs" a patch file that has a name like "Eve_Online_123456_to_123456.patch" - it is trying to patch from and to the same version! I am not surprised that it will not work. Anyone stupid enough to program in a patching system like that, could not be trusted to develop a working program.

On my Mac, the launcher is the problem. Skip the launcher, and Eve will run just fine.

It is possible you can do this on Windows.

If anyone wants to try and needs more details, let me know.

Hi, still have a problem with the latest patch, tried everything suggested and nothing works. But then I really don't understand most of the IT language, so it could well be me.
Been in Eve for 5 yrs- never a patch problem now I have been locked out for almost a week.
Last night decided to unistall eve and reload from start...will take 3 days to get back up and running if I'm lucky

If anybody from CCP is reading this then can you stop worrying about new graphic s or ship design and get back to making this environment work every time for everybody. And just to keep you real refund everybody 1 months game credit for the frustration and stress you are causing........
Well wants the chance that anything will really be done with a CEO that has forgotten that in a service industry reliable service is king!

I don't understand this... An antivirus company try it's best to release updates and patches that don't crash the client. Thiis, is done for 30-40$ a year. When something happens, the support is prompt. CCP's support, for a software that costs only 180 EUR a year, not even that is failing at patching/updating, but it offers limited support. I kind of feel that is a privilege to play, not that i'm a paying customer....

I've not been able to get automatic updater to work since it was deployed.
I followed Retrofire's exact instructions for downloading the update for Mac client, but still get the exact same error.
When I launch Eve these are the errors I get:

GM Retrofire can you link a 273475-369870 file for any of us that had the misfortune to reinstall via steam during this whole fiasco and are not on a stable enough connection to make it through the launcher?

I'm facing this situation as well and I've made a petition. No response, though.
Now I'm trying to reinstall using installer from EVE. (download only one gap of patch)
I'm looking forward to CCP's solution on this issue, if they're trying to fix it permanently.
