I play Eve on a Mac with two monitors, and the only thing that works for me is “Windowed mode”. It works for having Eve (nearly) full-screen on the larger monitor, and then having something else (like Discord or dotlan maps) open on the smaller monitor, in order to see both at the same time. It’s kinda tedious though, with many “gotchas”
- After launching the client, while still on the Character selection screen, I drag the edges of the window to exactly match the size of the monitor.
- The window MUST be resized by dragging. If I try any shortcut to resize the window (like double-clicking the menu bar, or Option-clicking the green window-zoom button,) then the client freezes and must be force-quit.
- I have to do the resize before going past the Character selection screen, and have to be careful not to allow something like a monitor sleeping trigger a resize, otherwise all my window-positions within the game (Overview, D-scan, chat, etc.) all get majorly screwed.
- In Mac OS System Preferences > Displays, I have to make sure Resolution is set to “Default for display” and not “scaled”, otherwise I get some crazy mouse-cursor flicker & disappearances that makes the game borderline unplayable.
The Eve client is so annoyingly picky/fragile on a Mac, but if you painstakingly accommodate it, it does work. Good luck!
