Known Issues:

Sometimes I’d click the play button on the launcher, it turns into the “stop play” button for a few seconds then turns back, and doesn’t start the client.

Same here, It starts the client and then says “Game client assigned to has closed unexpectedly.”

MacOS version 10.14, launcher version 1678945

EDIT: Also, the launcher hangs on closing and has to be force-closed.

EDIT 2: Fixed the window issue! Crack open the terminal and run this: cd ~/Library/Application Support/EVE Online/p_drive/Local Settings/Application Data/CCP/EVE/SharedCache && rm -rf ./ResFiles && rm -rf ./wine && rm -rf ./wineenv. Only problem is that this creates another issue: The intro video plays and when you get to the login screen, it freezes.

When I attempted to retrieve my reward today ( a blue synth booster) it would not let me retrieve it, it said I hadn’t trained biology 1. It should still give me the booster, what if I just want to sell it or give it to a corp mate?

Hi,

you cannot sell it because it is injected / activated if you redeem it.

CCP thanks for supporting macOS Catalina!
Yes I experience a memory leak of sorts crashing my computer from time to time. I tried to put all the graphics settings to low but it seems over time and especially under load with discord the game is really unstable and seems to crash at inopportune times.

There are other bugs as well, but frankly the game simulates windows to play. I am starting to think maybe I attempt to run the game in a virtual machine and avoid Wine altogether. Wine seems to get cranky and make the OS unstable, a virtual machine would be much more respectful for the host system.

Then again we would not be talking about this if the game were to run native, after all macOS is based on BSD, otherwise the computer is very stable having an AMD Radeon™ RX Vega 56…

I have to force quit Eve Launcher

I have had some issues with the launcher as well since the patch. Once it’s up and logged in it’s working pretty well, no issues yesterday at all, but earlier in the week the game was lagging out hard when taking gates and undocking. Hope it helps!!

Also, THANK YOU for supporting the small Mac community.

Launcher for multiple versions now cannot be killed with command-Q or the menu bar. In both instances it hangs and has to be forcibly quit. It quits if I right-click on the dock and select quit, but I’m concerned, without proof (yet) that there is a process which continues because:

  • computer sleeps then hangs on awake
  • restarts and restores system to last state of active processes
  • EVE launcher is (tada!) opened by the OS, assumably because it never fully quit.

Can not see any kill mark on Mac. Wanna see my shiny stars !!! This graphic issue has existed for a long time.

Same issue here - have to force the launcher to quit, which has resulted in 3 unexpected reboots of the Mac - I am on MacOS 10.15.5 on an iMac.

Same -
Launcher hangs on quit
Long pauses during gameplay (was fixed but came back with the “better graphics update” )
Unexpected quits during gameplay
