All the substantial lag, screen freezes and delays when opening various windows (market, ship fitting, contracts, etc.) are still present.

I am currently away, traveling through time and will be returning last week.

Hi,

update was running smoothly, but:

- Grafik Bugs still present.
- the same problems for me:

"All the substantial lag, screen freezes and delays when opening various windows (market, ship fitting, contracts, etc.) are still present. "

i am not happy, the mac client becomes more and more unplayable if you are not very carefully what and when to do something. I dont want to go into risky situations and if i press market or fitting i am dead because this takes a minute to recover.

I also want to use the ingame browser for mapper tools etc, but if a single missclick on a link in chat gives me 5 minutes work (Kill the processes, relauch, etc,etc) this feature is not usable for me.

I understand the problems with the so called "partner" but this leeds to an much increasing frustration for me as mac user.

and no, i will not buy a pc for playing eve and i have tryed parralles but it is to slow.

so:

"fix your bugs before you do new things or simply thrash the mac client if you cannot maintain it on your own"

i am not happy.......

You can boot your Mac natively on Windows using Bootcamp. Works fine. Parallels is too slow.

Can anyone at CCP please throw us a bone? I wouldn't even bat an eye at table scraps at this point...

I have recently had trouble logging on multiple accounts at the same time. Afaik, this is separate from the issue regarding logging off a client and affecting the others.

I start one client and go through the process of logging the character in. When I attempt to do the same on another account, I log in from the launcher, automatically starts a new client, and all I have is the window which seems to never leave the black (the black you see before character selection comes up) .

The only workaround I have yet found is to rapidly log in multiple clients (record so far is three) before the client icon appears in the dock. I have tried clearing the cache as well, without success.

E: I managed to get it to work properly a few times yesterday (not sure why), but then it reverted back to broke.

Also, how would one bug report this properly?

Yes, but I run my work in OS X and occasionally fire up EVE to relax. Opening up all that work stuff takes too long, so dual OS is big no no! Lol

Reporting same issues as other players: "All the substantial lag, screen freezes and delays when opening various windows (market, ship fitting, contracts, etc.) are still present." Makes playing kinda horrible.

Also having issue with client doing random double-clicks with mouse! Really annoying, making game borderline unplayable! It's definetely not nice when ship randomly starts to move in some direction. I get this problem when I switch focus between UI elements (like chat channels). Problem started after Vanguard patch. Had the other freezing-issues earlier. Had problems with manual piloting in Galatea, but those disappeared after it was patched.

Are there actually any Mac EVE players left? Or am I the only user, who practically can‘t play the game anymore?

I have constant crashes and freezes.

Like many of the others, I have the lag when opening many of the windows (issue is, i'm getting used to it).

It would be nice to hear more from the Mac Support Devs!
If anything, and if your able to log on, I will start to hang out in the Mac Channel in game. Cya all there!

In game Mac channel MOTD needs some love - don't know who is charge of it but has links that are out dated.
