whenever i log in it all work fine, and i am able to log in. When i get into the game, after choosing my character, it appears all black.... the onlt thing i can see is the blue strip at the top (i play in windowed mode) and two little strips of the game at both the top and bottom of my screen. From these strips i can see that i am still docked in my station, and that i can zoom and change the angle zoom correctly. Also, the cursor changes it look when ever i put it in certain spots on the screen, which leaves me to assume that the game work completely fine, except that there is a black box over my screen. Also, when i press esc, that screen works correctly, as in the black box disappears, and so i assume that the only time that the box appears is in game play mode, anyone got any ideas?? please help me! i have got no idea what to do

I have this issue too, in both full screen and windowed mode, its affecting all of my characters and only happens when i dock.

Crowrie - does pressing esc bring up the options window for you ? Also I tried a reinstall fearing coruption of some texture files or something and it didn't fix it.

hi, from looking on these boards it seems a good few other people seem to have had the same problem yesterday.

It looks like your player is getting stuck on load and my advice is to alt+tab, then press f12 (for help) and petition for "stuck", ask them to put you one system behind the system you're stuck in (which shows up as you select character).

I got stuck yesterday and it was a never ending stuck-fest, the GM moving me endlessly, getting me more and more stuck until I realised it was because he was trying to put me in systems that are directly infront of the system I was getting stuck on, and asked him to move me one behind.

Even so, if you get unstuck by the GM, it's best to wait where he leaves you until after downtime. I know this would be frustrating but it's either than or get stuck for another 24 hours.

Nearly the same thing with me - every other time i dock, instead of the black screen appearing, then clearing to show the inside of the station, i appear to be stuck outside, with pretty views of space. I think I am actually inside the station, but can't see anything apart from space scene so can't interact. Any way of resetting me so i can see the in-station scene? (escape, close window does not work, but quitting then coming back into eve does).

Yours very frustratingly,
