My computer is not able to run the premium client. Where can I find the promised "Lite" version of the client? Is this client a mythical beast or could somebody post a URL for said client?

BTW: I have not been able to "patch" a client for months. (No, I dont know why.) I ALWAYS have to download the whole client every time there is even a small patch to the client. So, making just a patch available is not an option for me.

WHERE CAN I FIND THE PREMIUM LITE CLIENT? (Not to belabor a point already made, Why should I pay if I cant play?)

Switch the graphics options to low and turn off the other stuff. Viola.

It is actually faster than the classic client.

One patch, well two. The big one followed by another small one.

Then go to settings and set it all to low.

Performance should be better than classic unless you have a really old system.

Well there should be an actual client online for downloading, so you wont need the patch.

Yeah, the new "Lite" mode is total crap. Can't get better than 5 frames as long as anything moves. Haven't even tried going into a particle field, that was bad enough in QR.

well i have no choice now classic has been taken away, will let you know in a month when the downloads finish, but by then CCP will release more oversized files for us to download to fix bugs they have created

Yeh they should rather burn their fkin patches onto cd's and sell them for 25 bucks in a store. Free expansions are crap. and everyone having all them bugs, like all 30k player that are currently online, really sucks.

Yeah the deployment of this patch was executed so well that im sitting here downloading a 2gb file at 20k/s and have you tell me how good a job CCP is doing rather than me actually playing the game, my main beef is not the slow DL speed or the other problems that have been created but the fact there has been no clear information about patching from the now discontinued classic to the current premium, many ideas from other users but no actual guide from CCP as they were the ones that made this change

Would you cry if I told you I donwloaded the patch on my PC AND my laptop at full speed?

And not going all emo about it, but just asking "how?" would have hurt or something. Or looking at the other "OMGEMORAGEHOWDOESIGETPREMIUMLITE"-threads.

You know, it's their game, they decide how to launch ****. If they think the community can handle this and they can launch without any asslong tutorials, that nobody would read, they do it. As long as the majority has no problems, there is nothing for them to fear Rolling Eyes

BTW. this is how lite client looks like http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/2122/20090310185947.jpg Laughing

to patch classic you first need to download the classic to premium upgrade about 700mb

then theres the premium client patch which is about 1.4gb

and then a further patch which was about 13mb

so basically your just better off downloading the full build as it equates to about the same anyway with no patching hassle

There has been a CCP Dev post sticky about this issue at the top of the General Forum for 10 days.

Exactly what he said.

This post has existed since 28th Feb, well in advance of the expansion. Its title was conveniently enough named "Classic edition users: Consider upgrading now to Premium to reduce Apocrypha download".

There's alot of people not reading forums tho, but that's it. They could've posted it in the news, but honestly alot of people don't read that either (I didn't my first 3 years in EVE tbh).

What's left, sending out mass-emails about it? I know I check my email once every 2 months so that wouldn't help either.

There was a sticky, with a good name, with GM monitoring the thread. Sorry guys for your ****ty situation, it's not very fun for you, but there's not much to do about it.

Good luck with the patching. At least the good news is everyone I talked to so far has had better/faster fps/visuals than pre-patch. Most of us has x2-x3 fps and clearly much more smoother action in space. It's worth the wait and clearly faster.

I couldn't even download the patch or client from CCP games

I had to goto and alternative site to get the full build

It installed onto my PC with no problems at all

When I went to run it , it says I have an incompatable graphics card yet the old classic ran ok (admittedly this PC is old but I didnt care it ran EVE )

So now I have 2 weeks paid accounts left on a game I cant get on

Where is Premium Lite which upgrades classic users ???

It seems there is no premiums lite... Just premium with all the settings on low.

Gotta love 90+ hours estimated time till DL finishes. Guess there has been a veeery good reason to just not release a seperate "Premium Lite" DL. Or even *gasp* more DL servers so this DT is in fact several days long instead of the advertised several hours.

And no, a random sticky thread in some random EVE-O forum telling ppl to upgrade to Premium client like 10 or 14 days ago is not sufficient IMNSHO.Mad Not sufficient to lay all the blame for this awesome DL process (and speed) solely before the user's door. I'm pretty sure CCP could have made this more streamlined/comfortable. That is, if they had wanted to...Confused
