I want to copy my game settings across characters and computers. I found this link: Linkage. I can't reply there since it's 90 days old so I started this thread.

Here's what I'm trying to do: I have two accounts and a desktop running XP and a laptop running Vista. I'm making one of my accounts have all the settings I'm looking for (on my desktop PC). When I finish I want to copy this data and have it work on both accounts on both computers. Any help?

Or something to that effect

Hi,

Settings are server side, not PC side.

Just downlaod the software, install it and run the game.

WOW, all your settings will be there...

This is the part that's frustrating me. I can use the post I linked to in beginning of the thread. My concern is the operating systems and how they install the game. Will I have to configure my settings once on the XP machine and once on the Vista? I don't think I can just copy/paste between the two machines.

only take the items in the setting folders with numbers, this relate to the character and account settings. The other relate to the configuration etc. Install a fresh copy of the game (unless there is a working copy already installed), then place the save files back in the setting folder. I do this all the time to move between my laptop and main machines.

For Vista/Win7 the settings are essentially the same

Theyre in: (May be slightly off)

\Users\<username>\AppData\local\CCP\

Also, eve keeps track of where the settings relate to the installed version, so you need to make sure the name is right, or just paste the old ones over the new one in the new directory.

I run eve from several separate installs on my computer and also from a USB stick when I'm out travelling. The trick is to force eve to locally save the settings in the eve installation folder. You do this by creating a shortcut to the proper eve.exe and add

/end /LUA:OFF

to the Target link. Oh and I still backup my settings regularly in case eve screws up.

I came across this utility while googling on this topic. Eve Settings Backup and Restore Utility by someone called Mofiki. Can anybody verify if this is a safe to use program? I dl'ed it but am hesitant to use it as there were macro mining programs and other unsavory applications there.
