I’m going to preface this with a great big
"I DON"T KNOW" as my evidence is purely anecdotal at this point.
I’m running Eve (anywhere from 1-3 clients) on an older 2013 MacPro (Darth Vader’s Trash can). Specs below. I’ve only very recently started seeing an issue where it will suddenly lock up for a few seconds and then shut down completely. The first couple of times this happened I had 1-3 instances of Eve running as well as an Excel spreadsheet (with the Eve add in). On this last instance the only thing that was running was a single instance of Eve.
I’m currently going through and verifying the game files through the client (with no issues being found) and will start running the client with LogLite running to see if I can capture something, This computer, while aged, has handled Eve admirably for years and the only things that’s really changed is the launcher revision so I’m starting there.
