Really annoying

It’s really annoying that after every major patch you release, there are major problems with the game under OS. Every single patch brought problems and I’ve been playing the game for 11 years now. At some point it will be enough.

This time: Game freeze after starting and stuck before the Char selection. Setting via “esc” - not possible, tabing out via “CMD - Tab” or “Three Finger Swipe” on trackpad not possible. Solution: Force Shutdown.
Client Refresh - no effect - no corrupt Files.
Performence Record: Complete Systhem Crash

So that’s a three Thumbs down this time.
(EDIT: Uploading Screenshot of Crashing. Yes that is with the EVE Client Startup and Freezing… after waiting serveral Minutes it was possible to Tab out. “Screenshot” is the result)

After last update patch i now arrive at blcak screen.
Here the red readouts from log lite

How about “we have read that. we will take a look arround?”?
That would be the least thing you could do…


I’m having the same issue. EVE was working great throughout the week. But today began crashing when I tried to play at 3pm PST. Did an update for mac users occur that may be causing the issue?

I saved the Apple Crash report that is made and can send it to a Dev if they need it for troubleshooting.

I fixed my issue doing the following:

  1. Used software “AppCleaner” to delete the EVE launcher
  2. Used software “Find Any File” and searched for keywords “EVE” and “CCP” and deleted any file in my computer that were related to Eve online and CCP game company
  3. Emptied my trash
  4. Rebooted Mac
  5. Redownload EVE and installed. Game launched without crashing.

Might not work for you but this is what worked for me. Just had to completely delete all of EVE from my mac and start fresh.

I had previously only dragged the EVE game app into the trash and re-installed the game but that didn’t work.
