Here is a step by step instruction for how to connect to Singularity. Singularity is a public test server which is used to test upcoming changes and fixes and give developers feedback on these. Feedback is usually posted in the Game Development forum and any bugs are reported via the Bug report system. What is special about the test server is that while you have the same skills as you do on Tranquility, most items are available on the market for 100 ISK.

Read this before you join the server:

Since this is a test server, there are special set of rules. Make sure you read them here: http://www.eveonline.com/ingameboard.asp?a=topic&threadID=253187

Here is another thread that is very useful to read: http://www.eveonline.com/ingameboard.asp?a=topic&threadID=46836

How to

*Do to constant updates to the Singularity server patching a Tranquility client to Singularity client will not work. Please see the next section to connect to Singularity*
If you have already installed the EVE Client, skip to step 3

1. Download the Tranquility client: http://www.eve-online.com/download/
2. Install the Tranquility client
3. Rename your install to "EVE Online TQ" or something of your choice
4. Install another copy of EVE Online, download the client here http://www.eve-online.com/download/
5. Rename that to "EVE Online Singularity" or something of your choice
6. Go here: http://www.eve-online.com/patches/patches.asp?s=singularity
7. Download the latest Tranquility to Singularity patch
8. Execute it and point it to the install called "EVE Online Singularity"
9. Note that the client you just patch changed name to "EVE Online" again. So, rename it to "EVE Online Singularity" again
10. Run the client.

How To, Part 2 *updated September 21, 2010*

If you have already installed the EVE Client, skip to step 3

1. Download the Tranquility client: http://www.eve-online.com/download/
2. Install the Tranquility client
3. Rename your install to "EVE Online TQ" or something of your choice
4. Install the full Macintosh version of Singularity, download the client here http://www.eveonline.com/download/?s=singularity by clicking the Mac link.
5. Run the Client
6. Note: You may still have to apply the changes to info.plist in the section below.

If the client attempts to connect to Tranquility instead of Singularity:

Read the "Configuring the SiSi client to connect to the correct server" on this page

Full details on how to connect to Singularity can be forund in this thread. The Test Server: Information Listing also provides valuable information.

IdeaThis info should be on the wiki page. If we can't get this on the wiki page can we please get a link to this thread FROM the wiki page for reaching singularity?

The following link I had bookmarked is now dead, and the page is written as if there is no mac client at all.

http://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/Singularity#Macintosh

Also, this process is awful.

Downloaded the whole singularity patch. Tried to run it;

Exception raised
Unhandled page fault on read access to 0x175d374b at address 0x79311aac.
Do you wish to debug it ?

I did the plist edit and the same thing keeps happening. Playing on a macbook pro 10.5.8.
Is there any way to fix this?

My bug report on this has been "attached to a defect". So the software elves know about it and (hopefully) are busy.

Any chance of a cleanup? The 'step by step' bit has just been appended so many times now it's more confusing than useful.

btw those having checksum issues and errors on the downloaded client, you can try using something other than safari.
downloaded the client using safari and the download is borked, downloaded it again using chrome and the client is working fine

Yeah, I would love to be able to patch SiSi so that I can use it. The client itself won't patch automatically, and when I tell it that yes I do want to go to the support page, it just closes. Nowhere have I been able to find a link to manually download a patch. I'm not going to re-download the whole client every time CCP tweaks something. That's stupid.

This is one of those things that make it seem like CCP gives no ****s about the Mac client.

I have never been able to download the TQ to Singularity patch. I always get a 'file not found' error from the link which leads me to:

http://cdn1.eveonline.com/test/mac/evepremiumpatch214371-220045_test-mac.tgz (currently)

Would love to help test the mac client. Happy that there's one at all now!

The support page says that build 220045 is the current one, but I don't think that is accurate. I downloaded the full 220045 yesterday and installed it, worked fine. This morning it says there is a new build available, but it won't autopatch. Full client is also different from yesterday, now it's 2200459.

I think we are just dealing with the fact that they haven't got around to giving us access to the latest patch.

EDIT: TQ to Sisi patch link is broken atm it seems.

Im downloading the full client atm, the download was only planned to take 1h so i thought i would give it a shot and see if i can get Sisi to work on the mac.

"A Mac client is now available for Sisi. Please see this thread for details."

I tried your link and the download started but it failed to mount, i have no idea what this means or what the problem is but its been happening for the past 4.5 months, if somebody in ccp could look into this it would be great

c'mon, be serious.. Rolling Eyes

1. Load Bootcamp for WIN 7 or your OS of choice..
2. Refere to Windows instructions for how to connect to Singularity.

Complete crap... seriously emoragequit frustrating over the past 24 hours. I've had to download the entire client 5 times, and it still doesn't work. I've been patient over the past year, trying so many times to get sisi to work on any of my computers. IT HAS WORKED NO MORE THAN 3 TIMES.

Am I pleased to know that sisi is available on Mac, yes (which... really? are we really to that point where we should be happy to be treated as normal people?). Am I pleased by the way it doesn't actually work, you can guess that one.

The instructions are bogus and in one instance can't even be followed at all. The patch has never worked. At best it only takes 1.5 hours to download the entire client, only to find that that one is somehow the wrong build which doesn't even have a patch available but says that it needs one. Then I find that once I think it's going to work... the server is down and there's another, newer version. Great, only 4.5 hours on this download. I'll save that one for overnight. What? It failed to mount? Oh, ok... Smile, take a deep breath. Download again. Fail. Again. Fail. Forums.

I love how this thread hasn't been updated for a whole year leaving useless and outdated directions for mac users who are left entirely in the dark. Although hell I guess since mac isn't even working on tranquility now why should they bother with singularity?

hi
Following the release of Incursion 1.4.1 and that Sisi are TQ are ment to be running the same mac client, I've attempted to redirect my client to Sisi but have failed...

Is it me or the instructions???

Followed the instructions on http://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/Mac_Bug_Reporting
problem seems to be with redirecting the client in the config file, this is an Unix Executable file and opens through terminal and i can not add any text into that document. The image on the web page show a picture from the old way then redirection was done through the Info.plist

Anyone successfully redirected the client?

Look forward to getting on sisi for a day or two, well maybe.

Thank you for any assistance.

version 6.43.246918
Client Sisi
Cider version 5889

mac OS X 10.5.8

Laughing
It does work the config file needs to be opened in text edit, not by terminal which is the default.

now lets go and get a frigate ganked by carriers in the frigate ffa...
