Yup. They warned about that yesterday:

UPDATE: Client Freeze Issues – MacOS 64-Bit Client

“All pilots should be aware that if they upgrade to Catalina (10.15), they will only be able to run the 64-bit version of the EVE Online client, which will prevent them from reverting to the 32-bit version if they experience this issue.”

Message to all. Don’t upgrade to Catalina until the freeze issue is fully resolved !

To help your situation you can go into the EVE Launcher, open Preferences - Wine Version - switch to Latest or wine-4.17. Also make sure you have “Run clients with 64 bit” enabled.

After upgrading to Mac OS Catalina, the middle slot modules are not activated using the alt / option + softkeys. Instead, they simply activate the top slot (function key only). Does anyone have such problems? You may know how to solve this problem.

I have EVE running on MacOS Catalina but it is limping graphics wise as the shader and textures are set down to medium. So far no crashes. But I still have the sub-windows black. Here is a video of all my settings…

Currently running Catalina. Anyone notice problems with the client just freezing at times now? Nothing actually crashes, and the client will sometimes recover. I’ve noticed this both in station and in space. I’m running in windowed mode, and it almost feels like I’ve lost input focus when this happens.

I just finished a client update and logged in to find I can’t toggle between screens. Tried different screen formats from fixed screen, windowed, and full screen but still not able to to go from eve client to say a browser window. I am currently running 10.12.6 on a macbook pro and using the 32 bit client as the 64 bit gives me a few errors that I can’t seem to fix. I use the 4 finger swipe up on my track pad to switch between open screens.

No solution to the Alt/Option key problem, but just to add that this happens in High Sierra as well. So not a Catalina-only thing – perhaps the Wine update?

unfortunately would to inform what last changes complicate to play because changes affect hotkeys. For example: CMD+A used to select all, but now it open character window and I cant change this hot keys.

So I stop subscribe 3 account. Please feel free to contact me if you bring back hot keys on mac or allow to change it

This isn’t a CCP thing. It is a wine thing. If CCP did, it would increase the complexity of eve again and just lead to more errors (which never seem to leave anyway)

All you have to do is get your brain to just use windows hotkeys in eve. A little practice and you can do it.

I found it. Hotkeys on Mac don’t work because of native wine support.

so sad(

winehq-master has native support to map option / command keys to alt/ctrl; see post #52 from thread ‘64-bit Mac Client, Wine, and YOU’
