Feedback on 64-bit Mac Client

Hello Capsuleers!

Now that there has been ample time for you to get a feel for everything that is 64-bit, we would love to hear your provided feedback on your time spent with the client, as well as bring up any potential issues you may be seeing. Some items there might be particular interest in can include:

  • Memory usage
  • Performance metrics
  • Potential bugs that could be specific to 64-bit
  • But also your general experience! :slight_smile:

Feel free to leave a comment providing feedback on the 64-bit Client below, and fly safe o7

I experienced crashes usually around session changes (docking, undocking, system to system, etc) but figured the logs were already sent and didn’t bother with any defect report. Both on my iMac and wifes laptop. Now I’m using bootcamp with win 10 on the iMac. Can run it with graphics set to higher settings, easier to set for triple monitors and the mouse isn’t jacked up. Jacked up meaning, i have a 4k retina iMac, so the game displays the mouse super small even though i’ve set the resolution to something like 1900x1200.

The crashes on the laptop haven’t happened today and I’ve been on for a few hours so, not sure if it was already addressed or just something that works itself out.

Really like the move. FPS has been good and seems to be more stable than before. Have seen reports of memory leaks but havn’t personally experienced any.

Had a bug today where all of my UI was reset. Don’t know if its related to the 64bit client, but it is also the only thing that is different from the years of it working.

All in all, good experience.

Maybe someone can help me to get my Mac mini to update to the beta.

From what I can tell and understand from the other forum topics

1: launch the launcher
2: click eve-launcher on the menu bar > click preferences
3: change version to beta
4: tic the little box that says run in 64 bit.
5: hit the okay button.
6: if nothing happens quit and relaunch the launcher.
7: pray that something happens
8: after some downloading blah blah. Launch a client.
9: check activity monitor > and it still says that the client is 32 bit😭

Every time, I have found, that you begin the EVE Launcher, you need to recheck, via Preferences, to see if the 64-bit box is checked.

I met the same issue

Hi! I don’t have 64-bit checkbox in launcher preferences. How can I fix it?

While this will not be 100% helpful I would like to provide the following:
Since June 11th, the client has crashed and frozen the computer four times.

  1. In game - full screen - best performance - while scanning in hi-sec for wormholes
  2. In game - full screen - best performance - in station
  3. In game - windowed - best performance - in station
  4. Out of game - in launcher - shortly after clicking to start the client.

MacOS Mojave 10.14.5 - 16GB Ram 1867 MHz, i7 3.1 GHz, Intel Iris 6100 1536 MB Ram

MacBook Pro 20\7 running MacOS 10.15 beta. I notice that there are 2 ways to set the EVE preferences:

  1. via the EVE Launcher > Preferences in the MacOS menu bar (also available via Command+comma).
  2. via the cog wheel at the bottom left of the EVE Launcher itself.

I note that using option 1 is not persistent: if I select “Run clients with 64 bit” then OK, a restart of the EVE Launcher sees the option deselected.

On the other hand, if I select “Run clients with 64 bit” via the in-launcher cog wheel menu the option selected is persistent.

However, regardless of how I make the 64 bit selection, the game does not launch at all. Launcher version is 1514997 Qt 5.11.1.
