EVE Luncher collapses after I update macOS to Ventura(version 13.0)

After I update my macOS to Ventura, the Luncher slash back every time.
I tried to reinstall the Luncher but it doesn’t work.
Many other apps on macOS face the same problem, but it can be solved by reinstalling.

report is too long( with 90k words ,can not reply here totally), so, if needed, I can send it to GM.

I get same issue here, the launcher crashes.
Some of the error messages:

The PC is
Macbook Pro 13-inch, M1, 2020, 16GB
OS is Ventura 13.0 (22A380)

I re-downloaded the luncher from website, and replace it, tried again, same crash.

here is my crash report.
and my Mac is 2021 MacBook Pro with M1 Pro, 16G RAM.

I think the crash is highly related to the new version of macOS.

I send mail to ccp support, and have to reinstall the whole eve( including the 30GB+ files).
will try it later.

I have no issues with Ventura and M1 8GB.

No issues for me with Venture 13.0, M1 Max 14" MBP 32GB

thanks for you lucky guys’ reply.
It still can not be solved yet for me.

I found. the solution, just because your system language, change it to English and reboot, will probably solve it


Wow this solution is really working!
Thanks a lot.
There is EVE launcher’s crash issue too after I updated to Ventura
And it was solved after I changed my mac’s system language to English(Korean → English)
Now I can play eve finally. thank you!


oh!! it works !! cool man!!
I’ll tell this to GM via support mail, this problem has to be solved in next update.

reload the whole eve files. So big >_<


A new version of the launcher was just released. If you download the launcher then install it the issue should be resolved.

If you have already switched your systems language then simply start the launcher, let it patch. This should resolve the issue and you are free to switch back your OS language.
