The patch has only just come out, they have up to 200k people to help and many of them will have slightly different problems. Give them time to sort the issues out, prepare clear instructions that will work for most people, and publish them.

In the meantime be thankful that you remembered to train a >2 day skill before the patch started.

You would have to be an idiot to waste weed on this guy. He would totally be the kind of smoker that complains about free weed.

Take a long breath.

Go take a walk.

If you own any firearms or other weapons, please give them to someone else before you do something you'll regret the rest of your life

Please be specific about which issue you are facing.

This thread in EVE Information Portal explains more on download issues we're currently facing, they should be beginning to ease off now.

An older patch had a bug in it that deleted some peoples boot.ini file, which is needed to boot the system. CCP quickly fixed the issue though but a lot of people were affected.

Google eve history for more fun facts.

EVE used to boot from a file called boot.ini

Coincidentally, so do many versions of Windows.

During a patch, a year or so back, the patch update called for deleting the EVE Boot.ini (to be replaced with a newer file). Unfortunately, a " \ " was missing from the parameter... so the patcher jumped up a directory level and deleted the Windows boot.ini instead. Razz

Since then, the EVE boot file has been renamed to start.ini , to avoid this in the future. Embarassed

Booting from boot.ini

Because they're VERY interested in people who post behind alts and with caps lock. If there really are so many people in trouble they'll have to choose whom to help first. Guess who's last in line due to posting like crap?

I was actually quite surprised he got an answer at all. Had it been me the thread would have been locked. Then again, I've worked enough tech support in my days to know that it actually feels good to be all sweet and polite to screamheads like him Twisted Evil

And yes, last in line is quite probable as well Laughing

73.68% of all forum statistics and numbers are made up (including this one) it's a proven fact.
