Windows 11 Eve crash "game client assigned has closed unexpectedly"

So, I’ve installed windows 11 yesterday, but since then Eve online stopped working for me.

Apparently there is an issue in the either the game compatibilty or in the OS itself and looking at the log files the EVE in Windows 11 cannot run in DirectX_11, either way, I advise someone using Windows 10 to not update right now or if you’re using Windows 11, start the game with Directx9 enabled.

This is the issue that you may find in the log files.

“bluepy.Terminate - Reason: Failed to create device under DX11”

The work around is to enable DirectX9 for a while, the game will launch as normal.

I’ve found the reason why Eve didn’t launch in Windows 11.
If you have Auto HDR enabled, you need to turn it off, after that the game runs at DX11 normaly.
Either the game isn’t coded yet for Auto HDR or Windows 11’s Auto-HDR is buggy, it’s probably the later.
Cool feature but it’s buggy right now.

The best Windows 11 advertisement I’ve seen

Tbh I just installed it for the HDR feature lmao
It’s very disappointing that Win11 launched that feature in such state, plus the it has alot of bugs.
For this reason I’ll never be an early adopter ever lol

As for me the MOST annoying feature is the new taskbar. App icons are always grouped and this cannot be changed.

Its not windows 11 fault, but CCP for not anticipating that a new OS possibly may affect their game!

There is your problem right there. Anytime folks early adopt there is always problems. Dont be that guy.

On the contrary, do be that guy, so that most of the issues are gone once the rest of us players follow. :grin:


This is why you don’t early adopt on an important machine.

A secondary one is just fine :smiley:

I applaud OP as he and his fellow beta testers are the ones biting the bullet so I can have a convenient experience once the bugs are sorted out and the end product is more feature complete. :slight_smile:

It was working at one point. Today is the first day I’ve had a black screen crash back to desktop with Auto HDR enabled…
