Hi CCP,

If you updated this page:

http://www.eveonline.com/patches/patches.asp?s=singularity&system=mac&edition=classic

To actually reflect the current state for mac users (ie no client for test server) then that would help. Currently the link there doesn't work... and info there is just well, wrong?

I guess it would take someone 5 minutes to update that page (or just link it to this thread?) and you would save hundreds of Mac users wasting their time searching your site (and downloading patches that dont work) to try and find out what is going on. Mental note to self... check the Mac forums next time.

I lost some beautiful ships to that Mac update with the keyboard bug and no amount of petitioning would get them back. even though I described the bug in my petition (sporadic/no keyboard input) perfectly before it was announced.

CCP excuse "Sorry if we cant see it was a bug on the server no refund" - It was a damn bug in the client... go figure.

Good luck Mac guys... I guess I'm going to the darkside. Bootcamp here I come.

Apocrypha looks awesome CCP... keep up the good work, just don't forget about us Mac users please!

if you want 2 weeks of testing you need to go back in time, even if the beta would be released today it's just 11 days left.

or the scenario that on release day the mac client won't be ready for release day.

the time left now will never be enough to fix the bugs the players would find within the first 24 hours.

my subscription is set for 12th to rebill for 3 months. i'm trying to suspend it, but ccp did a great job hiding that option.

but they won't get any money from my card anymore anyway. i have new credit card and the old is cancelled.

when they get it done on time i'll happily prolong the sub. if not i'm taking a break until it's ready.

That's my concern too. The previous Premium Beta actually wasn't that bad, but nothing's been perfect the first time so far. There are going to be bugs, and at this point we're getting awfully close to not being able to find them before the M10 launch.

You don't suspend your subscription, you cancel your account. It remains active through the end of the period, and can be reactivated at any time.

*coughs that hat back up*

Hey Mephysto, your beta download is broken. The OS X disk mounter is reporting that there are no mountable filesystems found...

MD5 (eve-premium_002234_81762_mac.dmg) = b3551c3c79cdf925ad9e7509938d3af9

I've downloaded it twice(!) with the same result. It appears to be corrupt.

well I'd prefer valid dmg

even with high speed download, broken dmg will be of no use

(just trolling waiting a valid dmg though :p)

yep found it, 2 accounts cancelled.

seriously, WTF?!? announcing a download for a beta that obviously noone at ccp dared to at least open the disk image? yet install / start and try for a minute?

that qualifies as EPIC FAIL. shame on you. Wink

"hope for the best, expect the worst"...

so i'm going to organize the evacuation of my assets to high-sec. i really can't believe the running gag "tomorrow" anymore.

i can imagine the stress level of the fellow devs at ccp these days. i smell 7day weeks and 14+ daily workhours.
you have my sympathies.

Conveniently, my subscription runs out on march 7th.

Here's to hoping the new Mac client will work just perfect (I really do!), but if not I've got plan B) all sorted.

New installer should be available shortly. It checks out in house, but I'm having a second check run externally to ensure theres no problem this time. Warning: its ~2.8GB.

Hi all,

The client you have been waiting for today will not be available today. We discovered some problems and we will keep it in-house until these have been resolved.

I'm sorry. We're still aiming to release it as soon as it is ready and before Apocrypha is released.

We use limelight which has a file distribution network with servers all around the world. If you're experiencing low download speeds you need to contact your ISP. We do not limit the download speed.

Right. You send the patch to 1 external tester and he discovers immediately a serious problem from it.
I'm not having high hopes about the launch on M10. Did you mean to say: as soon as it is readt OR when Apocrypha is released?
If we can't play anymore after noe and get months of deadpan silence, do we get our money back then? Would not want to invest good money on promises and false hopes.
Frak - why do I even bother with this anymore.

I'm beginning to get a funny feeling of deja vu here. On March 9, are we going to be getting a notice like the Linux people that CCP will no longer be supporting the Mac client???SadSad

Nah, it's already too late to cancel the Mac port. They would have signed a new contract with Transgaming back around the time they decided to can the Linux port, so at this point they're already locked in to spending the money barring some exceptional circumstance (whatever the contract defines, at least). The worst case scenario is CCP/TG fumbling around for the period of the contract (6 months?) trying to make the Mac client work correctly.

However I'm confident they'll get it fixed. Perhaps not by M10 at this rate (although I'm certainly hopeful for that), but it will get fixed soon enough. CCP doesn't want out of this market, there's a respectable market out there when you consider the number of Macs (particularly laptops) that are being sold and the fact that the only other competition is WoW.
