EVE Online to go native on macOS!


Saw the post for the play test next week. AWESOME. I know we give you guys a huge load of ■■■■, but we still love you all and all the amazing things you do.

The native M1 support was a surprise - from all the post before it seems you guys really wanted to push the intel side first and then would have had to go back and make a few updates for the M1.

If you can, on the internal side, how are things looking/preforming. Can we get pics/specs?

I do wonder, is there will be a fresh mirror on test server?

For the upcoming test, I have an older Mac without the 4GB of video RAM (only 2 GB). Would my feedback be helpful anyway?

Yes, that is covered in the Mass Test alert in the test server section of the forum - a new mirror is planned beffore the test.

Was the native client supposed to be available today at DT? If yes, then what am I missing to do, because if I chose SiSi, it keeps launching Wine.

the mass test isn’t until next thursday

I was just opening a new thread about this, where did you get the news? I was wandering if I was doing something wrong.

Yes, the mass test is tomorrow, but the updated native client was supposed to be available today August 11 and until the August 16 for us to test and report back on issues, so… we are still missing something.

is your launcher updated, as well as running all other min requirements…

Yeah, I updated everything. The masstest is the 12th at 17:00 Eve time, but the mac playtest should have started today New Mac client playtest | EVE Online .

Hi CCP Caffeine,

Was the native Mac client made available today (August 11), if yes, is there a specific procedure to run it out of choosing SiSi in the Launcher? Because it keeps launching the Wine version.

Hi all

We have just deployed to Sisi. Please make sure you’re running the latest launcher to avoid any issues.


Thank you, great news! I just relaunched the launcher after you posted, but selecting Sisi it’s not downloading anything new and if I launch and open the FPS monitor it still states dx9 instead of metal. Should I just wait or do something specific? The launcher version is 1924823

FWIW, I’m also still not getting the native client, just the regular wine client (launcher version 1924823).

Ok, I restarted the computer and now the launcher is downloading the client again. I’ll let you know.

Apologies, we have found an issue with the deployment. This means players will receive the Wine client currently.
We are working to fix this as soon as possible :sweat_smile: :sweat_smile:


The fix should be deployed, but you will need to completely exit and reopen your launcher.

Sorry about that folks!


Confirmed, now downloading the client. Thanks CCP Caffeine for the feedback. :+1:t3:

Hello there!

Just started playing Eve on Monday with my M1 iMac and super excited for the Mac client - quick question though: To participate in this testing, it won’t let me log into Singularity with my Eve account credentials. Is there some step or process I missed to enable my account to access the testing servers?


I fear that you joined just too late, as the last porting from Tranquillity to Singularity was yesterday, but I think the account data was from Monday…
