EVE-O Preview v5.1.2 Fork (multi-client preview / switcher) [ 2022-05-09 ] + limited Linux support]

would you be able to make a Mac client ?

i’m having issues setting hotkeys to clients. Nothing seems to work, no amount of combinations or even F13-F24. whats even weirder is every time i close eve-o, it seems to rewrite the JSON to blank, and the ClientHotkey section is blank.

Any help would be great.

Do not edit JSON when program is running.

I’ve been running Eve-O Preview for years, but recently (maybe last 12-18 months idk, I’ve been mostly afk) I’ve started to notice my windows desktop icons blinking through the accounts I have open on my main monitor.

I run a triple head set-up with six eve accounts spread across the left and centre monitors with the right for other apps. I’m running three accounts per monitor dedicated to Eve, with the Eve-O preview windows side by side within my EveUI. Switching between accounts and across the two monitors works just fine, but occasionally, and seemingly at random, I’ll see my windows desktop icons flash through the game clients on the centre monitor. This doesn’t seem to occur when I don’t run Eve-O Preview.

I’m running the clients in fixed window mode, obviously. Has anyone else encountered something similar? I’ve asked around, and I seem to be the only one so far.

Would it be possible to exempt specific clients from Minimizing when minimize Inactive clients is checked?
would be great to keep my scouts up and visible on 2nd and third monitors

Just uncheck “minimize inactive clients”.
I don’t understand your issue.

i would like to have the ability to minimize certain clients while keeping others visible on separate screens. Currently, when you uncheck the “minimize inactive clients” option, it disables the feature entirely, and you can only see what a single pilot sees.

To clarify take this scenario, let’s assume you have six clients open: miners on the main display and two scouts on secondary and tertiary displays. With the “minimize inactive clients” option enabled, you can only see what a single pilot sees, which means the inactive clients would be minimized, including the scouts on the secondary and tertiary displays.

it would be beneficial to have the ability to exempt specific clients from being minimized. This way, you could scout out peripheral monitors while still keeping sight of the miners on the main display. Note: all but one of the miners will be minimized in this scenario

Then lay out and size your windows the way you want them.
I have my main screen taken by my main client, and a second screen split in 2 or 3 windows, deps on what I’m doing.
Basically, smth. like this:

Hi @Aura_Asuna and all those involved on this project

I have been using EVE-O Preview for a while and love it so far.
I hope the following maybe of interest for further version :

Zoom on Hoover
I like this functionality for enabling me to have a quick and improved glance at what’s happening on my other characters.
Zoom factor : ok
Anchor : excellent

The only issue with this functionality is that for the thumbnail to go back to it’s original size I need to move my mouse to the new edges of the resized thumbnail.

Ex :
zoom x2,
anchor bottom left corner,
thumbnail size 900x400
then, coming from the right with my mouse, on hovering, as soon as my mouse goes under 900, the thumbnail’s width goes from 900 to 1800 and for the thumbnail to get back to 900 I need to move my mouse beyond 1800 to the right …
Would it be possible to have the thumbnail go back to it’s original size as soon as my mouse, going to the right, hit the 900 and not the 1800 … (same idea for all sides)

Imho this would make this functionality far more interesting and usable.
However if some prefer to move their mouse to 1800 this could be an option available in the settings.


Layout or screen visibility isn’t an issue for me as I run three monitors. The main benefit of minimizing inactive clients is to save system resources and limiting frame loss. I simultaneously run 12 alts, and minimizing inactive clients enables me to run all 12 with minimal impact on the frame rates of the focused client. However, it limits me to only one visible client. the ability to exempt allows for only minimizing less important clients an saving system resources but keeping other important clients open and visible

Well, with 12 clients, I think you need to fix something else.

hmm is the github repo still active? the last update is in 2022… closed source now?
