  • EVE-O preview - multi-client preview / switcher - v1.18.3 in EVE Technology and Research Center

    You're all quite welcome. I'll be quite honest, it's the IRL issues at the moment more than anything. But if I'm not enjoying the game, I can't justify 6 accounts and if I dont' have multiple accounts, I can't really test this program, now can I? I'm going to coast on one account until 2017 when the citadels finish and the mining gets updated and see the state of the universe.

    So it's a sad day to post this, but with how work is going (ie: super busy) and the changes to certain things in EVE now and projected in the future I'm essentially retiring from EVE. I'm dropping all my accounts except for my main (this one) and will no longer need to use a program like EVE-O Preview. And since IRL work is where I mainly made progress on this program and I have no more time, I've essentially stopped all development on this. Does it work? Yes. Are there bugs? Yes. But that's why the source code is there. What I can say is that if CCP improves the game back to the point that I actually *ENJOY* EVE again, I'll be back. It's a sad day in my book. I've loved this game for nearly 7 years but I discovered last week that I no longer care about it.

    I'll try to answer any questions yall have on EVE-O Preview, but it won't be regularly and I won't be tinkering on the program most likely. Fly safe space pals.

  • EVE-O preview - multi-client preview / switcher - v1.18.3 in EVE Technology and Research Center

    I honestly have no idea why it's doing that.. Then again, I don't recommend minimizing the clients.

  • EVE-O preview - multi-client preview / switcher - v1.18.3 in EVE Technology and Research Center

    I was not aware that was happening. Erm, no I don't have any idea why it would do that. That is quite odd

  • March release - General feedback in EVE Information Center

    So CCP Lebowski, the problem here is not keeping the people from getting hunted who are on watch lists, but those of us who use watch lists to keep ourselves safe.

    I'm from Providence. Those who have been there know that Honorable Third Party and many other reds like to hotdrop us. Fine. The problem is that they log off in local and relog later and hot drop. Thus if we don't know if they've logged off in local, the can log back in and hotdrop the people in local there. Often, they log off in combat sites or mining sites so that they can instantly hot drop people in there. Once upon a time, these "log off traps" were considered illegal or at the very least people would get reimbursed for their losses as such. Since about 2012 or 2013, that stopped.

    To me the problem isn't keeping the person safe who can't be arsed to make sure they're safe because their in a war dec or to figure out a good fitting so they dont' get ganked, but instead you have penalized the people who kept themselves from being hunted by hotdroppers who realistically have no counter with the current mechanics other than to have a counter hot drop fleet ready 23.5/7 or having people watch every system in the area 23.5/7 and never take their eyes off local. It's not feasible. Without the watchlist mechanic as it was, the gameplay of myself and my friends is severely hampered to the point where it's neither fun nor worth my time and effort to keep my numerous alt accounts running.

    Since 2011, I've seen more and more ways to "have quick and easy fights". While this does in deed counter that to some extent in HISEC, it does the exact opposite for NULLSEC.

    I plead with you, CCP, to add in some sort of compensation mechanic to know who is logged off in the systems in which you have Sov, be it some sort of structure or module. Otherwise, this game seems like it may become unplayable for me. I truly hope it does not as after nearly 7 years of sweat equity, I don't want to lose what I've built in the game both in fake space ships and in friendships. Please either reconsider this change or give us some mechanic to compensate for log off traps.

    Sincerely,
    Makari Aeron

    Thanks Lucas Kell. I've updated the OP with the link and the quote.

    @Basil Vulpine: I'll try to look into some things on my end this weekend and get back to you on Monday. Your problems are.....interesting to say the least.

  • EVE-O preview - multi-client preview / switcher - v1.18.3 in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Honestly? I don't know. I have never had it do that to me. Then again, I'm not the original author. I merely adopted it when he stepped away.

    @Basil Vulpine: I'd recommend doign what Lucas Kell said, move the EXE to a new folder or rename it the folder it is in.

  • EVE-O preview - multi-client preview / switcher - v1.18.3 in EVE Technology and Research Center

    A) it only stores files in those XML files in its own folder.

    B) editting the XML files within the bounds of reason shouldn't cause any problems

    C) currently, no.

    Personally, don't use notepad. It screws with the end of line characters. I'd use notepad++ or wordpad. That might be the problem you're having. Perhaps try running as admin?

    Whatever windows 10 did, it royally messed with EVEO Preview. Unfortunately, I have little time to do extracurriculars with how work is at the moment. Hell, I rarely touch EVE these days much do my dismay. At some point I'm going to finish my rewrite of EVE O Preview, but I have no ETA. The last time I touched the code was October.

  • EVE-O preview - multi-client preview / switcher - v1.18.3 in EVE Technology and Research Center

    I've asked CCP for a clarification either in this thread or the Dev Blog thread. Hopefully we'll get a response in the next few days.

    could we have a different background image in the launcher, please?
    as i understand it, many people were upset about skill trading. getting reminded of it on each login seems to me to be a bad pr move, and feels more like being shown the middle finger every time i log in :/

    You sound like you're being triggered. Honestly, I don't understand what the big deal is about skill injecting. It doesn't affect my game in any form whatsoever. I'm content to mine, rat, and PvP in null. You don't like the service CCP added to the game? Don't use it. What's that phrase that everyone loves to tote on the forums when someone doesn't like something CCP did?

    Oh right, it's HTFU.

    Keep doing what you're doing CCP, no skin off my back as of late.

  • EVE Launcher version 1007258 in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Took me 4 tries but I finally grabbed it. I was using Google DNS at the time.

  • EVE-O preview - multi-client preview / switcher - v1.18.3 in EVE Technology and Research Center

    I've had that problem too, always Windows 10. What I recommend doing is deleting your XML settings files and only starting EVE O Preview AFTER you've logged in all your characters. I've been trying to pin down what is different, but it's something M$ changed since the November update (aka Win10 SP1), but I have exceptionally limited time to do any development (see post above yours).

  • EVE-O preview - multi-client preview / switcher - v1.18.3 in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Well, for the last few months the price of oil has slipped drastically which increases my work load as I have more jobs to do around the office. So for the time being my role in development in on hold. I love EVE and working on the program but it doesn't pay my bills. I can count on one hand the number of times i've logged into EVE in the last 3 months, and that's not for lack of want. You're more than welcome to crack open the source code yourself, it is open source for a reason. In addition, I'm not quite sure what you mean "easy access to every client window", could you elaborate, please? While I do wish I had more time to play EVE and write a new version of EVE O Preview, I simply don't. Thank you for your understanding.

  • EVE-O preview - multi-client preview / switcher - v1.18.3 in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Which text color are you talking about? But no, I don't believe there is.

  • EVE-O preview - multi-client preview / switcher - v1.18.3 in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Thank you!

  • EVE-O preview - multi-client preview / switcher - v1.18.3 in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Oh duh. Teamviewer. Yeah, for some reason Teamviewer messes with Windows Aero. For some reason I was thinking Stardock. Either way, I wish there was a way to avoid the Teamviewer problem. It's something I'll look into as I'm rewriting.

    I'm just glad we could find a solution.

  • EVE-O preview - multi-client preview / switcher - v1.18.3 in EVE Technology and Research Center

    That is odd. Very odd indeed. Normally, the animations don't work unless the clients are non-minimized. I'm going to take a look into that. However, i do notice in Windows 10 you don't have a little double arrow on the top of your EVE and/or EVE-O Preview windows. That's from a stardock program (though i can't recall the name). perhaps try windows 8.1 without it installed? That does affect Windows Aero IIRC.

  • EVE-O preview - multi-client preview / switcher - v1.18.3 in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Just to check, are you clients:
    --In Windowed Mode
    --Not Minimized

    Sadly, I've stalled on development due to work and prepping for the holidays. Hopefully I have more time soon.

  • EVE-O preview - multi-client preview / switcher - v1.18.3 in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Thanks! I'm actually working on that in my (exceptionally limited) spare time.

  • Dev Blog: Scanning and Probing Changes in Parallax in EVE Information Center

    I turned off the new scanning wnidow. Those faint green lines with gray background make me think of pre-MS-DOS days and giving me a splitting headache. Can we please go back to an entire red/yellow/green bar? Also, the new scanning window Is most definitely NOT colorblind friendly. The old version was at last passable.

    TL;DR: if this new system gets implemetned, I'm not going to be able to scan without giving myself a migraine. I'd really prefer to avoid that.
