Yeah usually CCP has a cyno set up for the cap ships and can give you extra fuel/cap if you need it to jump. It may take a minute for them to get to you but they will. If you want less hassle, bring a BS.

Ok thanks! If I can bring a carrier I will damn well bring a carrier, no need to use a pansy battleship when you can use a big manly cap ship Very Happy
Besides I want to see what it goes for in a fleet.

CCP has created a program called Sisilauncher that helps with the installation with sisi. It has worked very well for me and many others. It's still in beta form so it's not perfect yet. Always try and use this program first before doing anything with the sisi client if the client is not working. For instance, my client had a different build so it was saying I had to download the client all over again. I ran the launcher and it has kept me from having to download the thing all over again.
Here is the link to download it: http://www.eveonline.com/ingameboard.asp?a=topic&threadID=1377944

There are a few important ingame channels that can help you get information about the mass test.
Masstesting - This channel is usually used by CCP to relay instructions to the players about the steps that will happen next during the test.
Moveme - This channel has either a bot or CCP person and they will move you to the destination of the test.
There are also usually two fleet channels where you can go and asked to be moved into a certain fleet. They vary but usually are fleet x and fleet y.

Also, CCP has now started giving 2 million skillpoints for each time you come to the mass testing. The skillpoints probably do disappear after a new mirror but they are still nice. I know that the skillpoints from the last test have stayed until this test.

PS: It is VERY helpful if you create a bugreport. Information for creating one is here in this thread: http://www.eveonline.com/ingameboard.asp?a=topic&threadID=585921




and all this work for 2 mill sp on the TEST SERVER?!? yeah right.I heard about the sp being given out and got my corp to download sisi..wait until they find out its for the test server..they will wtf gank me. I agree that ccp has to do better than giving us test server sp..i dont even train skills on the test server lol.useless

Edit:give us 2 mill on tq..its not like we are gonna run out of skills to train and quit playingRolling Eyesits a game..and one we pay for monthly at that..give us a break and give us something for messing with our computers all night getting this to work..and for our time.

Edit2:we will be there..but i hope you give us something better than sis sp next time..no wonder why noone shows up

Edit3:ok..just tried to log in..a new build was available..tried to install it and it is corrupt and after trying to repair it with the repair tool..a python error came up.So..its not worth downloading the whole game again.Have fun testing and let us know when your ready to give us something for our time.Its bad enough posting on this old ass forum where the pull bar keeps jumping up and doesnt let you see what your writing.

Just wanna say, the last test was the first time they gave out SP on sisi. you use to get nothing but a pat on the back. SP on sisi is pretty cool, imo, and definitely a step up from nothing.

2m sp on sisi?
excuse me but I feel kinda insulted. I'll pass!
that's hardly any different from 2 billion isk on sisi, completely worthless.

I am all for testing and improving the performance, but like many people, I am very busy IRL, and especially on a Thursday evening. if you want to encourage more players to stop their TQ realy game or RL stuff, then please offer something more useful than "free air".

If it were 2m sp on TQ, or even 1m SP you'd instantly have 2000 people there and test everything that needs testing, and it's not like this 2m sp extra will break the balance of the game on TQ.

A worthy alternative, if you insist on keeping things on SISI, is to give players who participate in the test all skills at lvl 5! it was like that at some point and I am sure this will encourage large numbers to hop on sisi.

Good luck.

So I got it to work..after spending an hour fitting 5 ships and taking them to piotot..finding out what i have to do and all that..I sat around for almost two hours watching my game run at 2-3 frames per second.And didnt shoot a single bullet.Not to mention almost an hour of even getting the install to work.

For two mill sp on the test server...never again.

Not only that..but if thats how the big fleet fights run..I want no part of it.

I'd love to help out testing, but whenever I try to help test my SISI client's version is incompatible and requires a FULL CLIENT download (Mac OS X, 2.9G). Granted, most of the times this is because I don't update it often enough, but not this time (for the 9/9 test). I updated the client last week (more like four days ago, requiring a full client download of 2.9G), giving me version 6.31.177393. Today when tryiing to log in I get this error:
Quote:

There was an unexpected error while retrieving update status:

An update file for your build number is not available.
You will have to update manually.

Do you want to go to support page?



So I go to the manual download page (http://www.eveonline.com/patches/patches.asp?s=singularity&test=&system=mac) and cannot find my version number to update from. Sorry to say I don't feel like download Yet Another Full Client after doing so four days ago.

Good luck with your testing.

Hey!

The skill points for yesterday's test have been applied to your characters on Singularity. My logs found 660 characters, which were somehow present in the mass test. This is an AWESOME amount!
Enjoy your skill points!

Me likey SP...

edit: The patch wouldn't work for me, either. I used to Sisi launcher (beta), which worked perfectly. It's in the test server subforum, its really nice.

I would love to test too but I also am experiencing problems with installing and logging on to the test server ...

Patch installed over copy = didnt work
Full version installed then patch = didnt work
Did both of those again after uninstalling = same problem didnt work

It might have something to do with the patch or win. 7 64 bit .. not sure... Process problem ground zero is during client update after installation. Repair bot does not fix problem, Python error.


Hope somebody will fix this so a lot of people can use the test server that cannot right now

I'll probably still show up but..

•All participants of this mass test will get 2 million free skillpoints on Singularity as small reward


That is kind of pointless as an incentive since the test server gets wiped periodically? Wouldn't 200,000 (or 20,000) SP on TQ be more attractive to players.

May seem petty, but you can't deny the idea of getting SP rewards on TQ would attract many more players.

I would suggest having the mass test coincide with a downtime on TQ, possibly shifting the usual downtime so that it takes place during peak player hours. This would be a welcome break for the Aussies and will encourage many more people, who might not otherwise want to get involved, to take part.


No point for a test to be time zone one side. So if they did dod it after down time then other people will miss the fun

Hi

I am new to eve and would like to help I just have a couple thing I am not sure about.

I am not very good a pvp yet and the level of my character on the test sever means I am likely to get blow up in the first fight Very Happy.

So my questions are
1) If I do what do I do next?
2) Dose any thing that happens on Singularity carry cover on to Tranquility?
3) If i get blown up do i still get the reward?
4) And dose the 2 million free skillpoints go on to your Singularity or Tranquility character?

Hmm a whopping great 2mill sp to use on sisi for turning up to help on there. I bet that 2 mill sp disapears on next mirror Laughing

Maybe you should give us some skill points for Tranq instead not 2mill sp but i dunno something.

Also can a gm confirm that the extra 2mill sp you use up on sisi will be there after next mirror or not. Not that i'll bother wasting my time on sisi. Not unless you make it worth my while Wink

Like the new sisi launcher tool. I am new to sisi and found that my toon had a 3M skill point hit. I got on specifically to help and get the 2M skill points so I could try out some new fits. However I am still ending up with a 1M loss. I heard about there being an occasional tq mirror that updates the toons. So please have that happen before the testing on Thursday. It is a bit of a dissalusion for all new ppl coming for the test and finding that the 2M is a false insentive.ugh

CCP, I didn't get my Sp. I was there but I wasn't in a fleet because they were all full. I demand SP or I boycott these tests. I was there and I think I did well although with all your DEV ub3r 1337 h4xz0rsz im sure u can have Leadership and Wing Command etc. to all like level X or XV :)so we can have more people in fleets and actually get the SP we were promised.

Amazing. CCP listens to CSM suggestions and communications, finally puts together a decent launcher application for sisi and comes up with a decent skillpoint bonus for the test server ... 900 people in mass fleet testing.

Very Happy

You realize it can take approximately 2 days to get your SP?

1. setup multiple ships for test purposes... about 4 to 6 of them and the day prior to the test move a couple (three) of them to a station near or in the test system... if you get popped just hop to the station and get into another ship
2. Nothing you do on Singularity changes or affects anything on Tranquility.
3. Yes
4. Singularity... not worth much IMO but that is not the point of the test...
