When I switch to Eve (CMD+tab) from another app, about 50% of the time the Eve client gets… confused. By confused, I mean things like:
- mouse selection does not work properly (e.g. long-clicking on wormhole does not open menu)
- mouse drags only register for maybe 20 pixels. Like if you click & drag in space to rotate the camera view, it will rotate for perhaps 20 pixels, but no more than that.
- the keyboard acts as if I am holding down a key modifier (shift, control, alt, etc.) So if I start typing some text, suddenly menu items are opening left and right, causing all kinds of havoc, because Eve thinks I am typing “CTRL+a” or whatever, when I have only typed “a”.
This confused state is fixed by CMD+tabbing out of the app, and back in. It happens so frequently that it is now part of my muscle memory- basically every time I switch to Eve, I do a test click to see what state it’s in, and if it’s “confused”, I tab away, then tab back. Extremely frustrating. I’ve had my char die due to this bug (CCP did comp me, to their credit.)
I do play in Windowed mode, but as far as I can tell the problem also happens in full-screen mode. I’ve been playing for ~5 months now, and this problem has plagued me the entire time, and across different (Mac) computers. I had been hoping the 64 bit client would address it, but so far it remains.
I have also tried resetting all command shortcuts to default, creating a new launcher profile, and installing on an entirely different Mac. Nothing has helped. I am happy to help debug this with you, if you have specific things you’d like me to try. Thanks for your time.
