If you encounter issues with patching the EVE Client or the EVE Launcher, please contact Customer Support by filing a Support Ticket - this way you will receive best possible individual assistance.



Alternative patching method
April 4th, 2013: Updated links to client version 514947 (Retribution 1.1.10)

Patch notes here
Older patch links can be found at the bottom of this post.

Instructions, Windows:

If you are unsure which client version you have installed you can circumvent the launcher by starting the \CCP\EVE\bin\exefile.exe executable. In the top left corner of the EVE log in window you'll see the currently installed client version. From that you can determine which patch you need to download.

1. Download and open the zip file which will take you to the current TQ client version
2. Copy the .patch file into the EVE Online client folder, usually that would be C:\Program Files\CCP\EVE
3. Run the launcher and it'll do the rest for you automatically.
4. Download and open the latest zip file
5. Copy the .patch file into the EVE Online client folder, usually that would be C:\Program Files\CCP\EVE
6. Run the launcher and it'll do the rest for you automatically.

Here are the latest Windows patch files.

2. Open it by double clicking on it after it's been downloaded to extract it.

Thanks Retrofire, this is appreciated.


Unfortunately, it suffers from the same bug the launcher does -- it cannot handle being installed on a case-sensitive filesystem.

We badly need the Mac version. Thanks!

As a MAC client I feel like we are always second seat. Even when I submit a petition they always refer me to a Windows solution even after posting in the petition that I have a MAC client. It is very frustrating. All month I've played just a hand full of times, my research que has been empty for days now and I'm being charged for time I'm not able to play. As much as I enjoy the game I am a very dissatisfied customer right now!

Being on linux, I wish we had a seat, considering there are more wine players than mac players.

Ah,

that's fine.

But, my launcher (still) works, and i need only the *.patch-variant.
Are they downloadable?
I think, it's faster to deploy these files, than to compile an executable.

This is being looked into as a possible alternate patching option, we'll hopefully have some more information on this next week when people come back from Easter vacation.

Please make the Mac versions available. It's taking me another 3 days to download the latest full installer.
#11 Posted: 2012.04.07 07:20
My client is stuck at version 344784, which I think was the last pre-launcher version. Could you provide an update from this version, please.

Thanks very much for these patches, you have saved one customer here.

My main toon is about to expire, and I have to go on the road this week.

So I'm hoping the bug with the mac launcher gets worked out before then, because I am not going to renew my subscription if I can't play.

Hi,

I have made and uploaded the torrent for the latest EVE client for MAC. I am seeding it and if anyone is interested in helping seed will be much appreciated:

At the moment it can be found via PirateBay and is tracked on publicbt.com and openbittorrent trackers. The link is below as well.

https://torrents.thepiratebay.se/7173308/EVE_Installer_MAC_FULL_CLIENT_007867_358079.7173308.TPB.torrent

It took me about three days to get the full version in cuz of the corrupts etc. Hope this helps. Let me know if there are any issues

Ah, nvm. I found the location of the patch files on my drive, moved Almethea's patch there and all went well.

Thanks Almethea.

How come the patcher is bugging still ?

I checked some question about the "downloading loop bug" on forums.
Nothing seems really clear to fix it.

Permissions, directorys... Cache...
Nothing is working.

Are we going to download it manually from this thread?
Not whining. This is just unbelivable to patch a working game to a bugged client. Even if there's an alternative solution, that's not a good mechanic.


Thanks for the job still.

How long we need to wait for an official download of this patch?

First of all I'm surprised to find the right forum under the "DEV's" tab after I logged in and NOT in the forums where it should be and where is absolute no response from any DEV.

Now again: EVE Online Launcher v.1.19 is running in the first stepp (Creating EVE_Online_360229-359766.patch)
till 50% and than starting downloading 0 MB/240.79 MB. With app. 60% it is breaking up like I mentioned before (see below).
Right now nothing helps. I'm truly on the War-Path with launchers like that.
There was a small update today after maintenance on Tranquility (2012-04-12) and I hoped it could help with the update (patch) on Singularity. So I made a fresh testserver installation with the Tranquility update from today but unfortunately with same result. In the downloading process (app. 60%) it got same error message:

"An error occured while applying patch, the launcher will now try to apply the patch safely with raised privilages."
Than a "Applying patch" message is showing up which pops an other "applyPatch" message which is saying:
"Uanable to apply patch It is recomended that you restart your computer and then run the EVE Online launcher again."

I did that several times, all with same result. The launcher doesn't works anymore and the patch script which is "trying to apply the patch safely ...." never worked. Can realy cut it out from the the patch fixing installation process.

I tried to cleanup all catches, deleted all patches in the Singualrity folder, started and updated the repair tool, but all that did not helped. Also opening/starting the launcher as administrator did not work. The launcher is not working anymore.

I had same problem after the Crucible 1.6.3 update with the Tranquility folder, but after rebooting the computer it worked and the launcher could update and load the game, NOT so on Singularity.
The most frightening part will be - when the patch is failing on Tranquility - which was already happened after the last update in the beginning of this month. Atleast there the reboot helped and I could continue playing on Tranquility.
