Longtime returning player. I’ve taken breaks from Eve before but never had this kind of difficulty getting back in. It’s to the point where the game is unplayable for me.
In the past I’ve been able to select an object in the overview window such as a jumpgate or station, then just use keyboard commands or click the icons to align to, warp to, dock/jump, orbit, etc.
This time around I’m finding that if I select an object. I can press a key and it will complete the desired function, but then if I issue another command without selecting another object (the object is still highlighted), it asks for a target. Then I must use another part of the UI such as opening another window (like the character sheet) before I can select the object again to issue another command.
Select Jumpgate > Align > Warp > Jump.
Select Jumpgate > align > click another window > reselect jumpgate > warp > click another window > reselect jumpgate > jump.
The worst part is that with all the new content and upgrades its running much slower on my PC until I get my settings dialed in, so I have to wait for the other window to load up before I can reselect the object. Often times I’m sitting at a jumpgate waiting to die for a bit of time before I can activate it.
I did some googling and people have been having this issue or at least something similar since 2016, and most often it was a conflict with the GeForce Experience software, which is not installed on my PC. I’ve gone through every game setting I can find without any luck. I’ve tried every OS setting I can think of.
Thanks in advance.
