I am also getting this. I try to drag an item from Items to Cargo, and I get a nice picture of the item where I dropped it, but the actual items doesnt move. Its still in the Items box.

When I undock, the icon is STILL painted wherever it was dropped.

What is going on??

This game is broken for me now. I am a Trader who cant move goods!!

Having the same problem. Makes the game pretty much unplayable.

It used to happen in high lag situations but it just does it all the time now.

Hmzz..i was scooping around this forum and reading some threads.

What i like to know from the previous posters, did you had trouble with the staged patching at all?
Because i did, most of the time the patches were corrupted, so i spend about 8 hours downloading..and downloading..till there were no errors anymore.
But maybe something did go wrong in the process.

Read this thread:
http://www.eveonline.com/ingameboard.asp?a=topic&threadID=1020574

Will give it a try if CCP doesnt respond.

Well, CCP responded with a mass reply to the petitions concerning graphical problems.
Only I already followed every step they recommend before posting and petitioning about it...

Only thing I now can think of...pre-Apo update I used the classic client.
The patches didnt go very well and took a lot of time.

How about you, people? Did you use classic client also?
If that's the case, I will try to install the full update.

I had no problem with patching but for the hell of it I redownloaded Eve and still have drag and drop issues.

Did you use the classic client before this apo update?
And did you de-installed EVE, and reinstalled it with the full setup? (that is, with the EVE_Premium_Setup_84244_m.exe of 1,94 Gb)

Just wondering....

Marenubium
Posted - 2009.03.14 17:46:00 - [14]
 

Deinstalled EVE
Rebooted pc
Manually installed the FULL exe (1,94 GB)
Rebooted pc
Started game
Problem still exists.

Its getting quite annoying right now, since I can not play EVE after the apo update.
Getting mad also, because I'm trying to resolve this crappy thing since the apo update, and nothing works!

CCP? Please respond.

Marenubium

Ok. last try. Since I'm glued to my pc ever since apo has been released..
Following steps have been made today:

- deinstalled graphic, mobo + sound drivers
- used drivercleaner pro
- Reboot
- Installed newest drivers
- Reboot
- Deinstalled EVE
- Removed ALL remaining folders manually
- Disabled/removed anti-virus/firewall (nod32 + comodo firewall)
- Reboot
- Ran Hijack This
- Ran JVC 16 Powertools 2008 -> removed all remaining CCP/EVE stuff
- Reboot
- Unzipped EVE full install with 7z
- Installed EVE
- Reboot
- Started game
- Game crashes, pc crashes.
- Changed the 'hardware acceleration'
- Started game; mouse flickers, drag and drop problem still exists.
- Game crashed to desktop.
- Changed EVE ingame settings
- Problem still exists.
- Downgraded graphic drivers
- Started game, mouse flickering gone, graphics looks better, game doesnt crash anymore.
- Drag and drop problem still exists.

Getting tired of it.

Try deleting your cache files in :\EVE\bulkdata\ and reset the cache by clicking the reset cache button in settings.. I always do that when patches come out and it helps for the better part of issues..

Thnx..but already did..everytime I installed something 'new'....didnt work :(

Do you have enabled sound?

Drag and drop is not working for me and I have disabled sound.
I cannot enable it http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17713

I would bet that this is causing the problem.

My sound is disabled as well because it says I can't support it.

Aww :( indeed, i disabled sound.
But why does this cause a graphic fault??

*looking for a workaround

Marenubium
Posted - 2009.03.15 12:05:00 - [22]
 

Hmmzz..it seems it has to do with the SSE support.
EVE disables sound if your proc doesn't have SSE.
Though my proc Amd Athlon 1.5 Ghz is supported by EVE.
If it's only soundrelated, why causes it this much trouble?

Other strange things encountered: i can't lock a target.

possible workaround if you do have a proc which supports SSE:
enable sse

Or else a bios update may be another solution....
:(

Bumping this thread.

My account expires soon so I'm hoping to get this sorted before it does, I don't see much point in returning if it doesn't. I'm sure CCP hears that all the time but for instance what happens when I get a faction or officer spawn and I can't even pick up the loot, or refit a ship without having to strip all the modules, or not being able to put ammo in my hold.. or even LOAD MY GUNS! This bug kills eve for anyone experiencing it.

edit: i filed a bug report and they told me to update sound card drivers which I did, problem still persists.

Still no decent answer from CCP.
This is driving me crazy!
Also attached a logserver file to the petition, but until this day I haven't got any answers back from CCP.

Well...Im getting a new system, thanks to CCP, but no thanks to my wallet/vacation plans this year.
As far as I'm concerned, I will not extend my payments until all problems are solved.
This is just a mad house imho.
I haven't been able to play for one #*^%$(&#$@(&$ week, but I do payed for it.
For the first time in my life i payed for an online game like this, because all worked fine for me with the classic client.
Bummer.

First of all then the best way to get an issue looked at is to file a bug report. The GMs do tell us about trends in petitions but their primary concern is to fix your immediate problems that they can do anything about.

I'm sure some of you have already filed bug reports on this issue but if you have not then please do. Sadly I know little about audio or graphical stuff but I remember "dragging" being partly broken for a short while where you wouldn't be able to see the icon but it would still be dropped to what ever container it should.

best regards

Understand that, you guys must be really busy...but EVE is unplayable right now ever since the apo patch...please try to understand my/our frustration, too?

It doesn't drop. Icons floats around, but the items are not dropped. Targeting objects is also out of the question.
Please look @ the logserver- and screenshot-files which are added to petitions/bug reports :(

Thanks anyway for your answer, you are the first actually from CCP who did answer Very Happy

From my amateur deductions, and looking at the above responses, this has got to have something to do with SSE compatibility. My sound is currently turned off too, as my donkey old CPU wont cut it.

I am still getting both the drag and drop problems, AND the inability to lock.

Here is a screenie of what happens when I try to drag items, and then undock:

WCPUID is actually very good! Tiny download, and gives you all the info you need on your CPU. Gives you an option under "Tweak" to enable SSE.
Bad news for me though! Found out that my CPU doesnt support SSE at all, so I cant even tweak it to turn it on.
Lucky I have a brand new PC turning up in a few days!

Come on CCP...this needs sorting. Not everyone can buy a new PC, and this problem didnt exist before Apocrypha. Rolling Eyes

That is a nice tool but unfortunately my pc doesnt support sse at all as well. I have to wait a month or longer to get a new pc. Oh well. In the meantime I guess I will disable my accounts and try out another game.
