Mac OS High Sierra and older Macs, client never appears, Workaround


(GM Mechanic) #1

Some users have been encountering issues with launching EVE after the recent update to Mac OS X. The reason for the issue is the following error.

0036:err:d3d:wined3d_adapter_init_gl_caps Card 1002:6760 not found in driver DB.

I have a workaround for this issue:

  • Start the launcher.
  • Click on EVE Online in the apple menu at the top of the screen and select Preferences.
  • Under wine options make sure “User Dev Version” is not ticked
  • Dev Branch should be ccp-master
  • Wine version should already be set to the the latest, change to wine-1.9.17-143-g91037ca-ccp-72
  • Close the launcher and the client if either is running.
  • In finder, click Go to Folder and copy paste the following

~/Library/Application Support/EVE Online/p_drive/Local Settings/Application Data/CCP/EVE/SharedCache

  • You should see a folder named wine – move that folder to trash

Start the launcher again and run the game and the client should start if the error above is the error you are encountering.

This seems to have worked for me.

Thanks for this. So the issue isn’t so much Eve as Wine?

You are welcome and yes the issue appears to be wine related.

So glad I found this eventually! Took me around 3 hrs of searching and troubleshooting. Excellent fix. Thanks!
