Except of course that the new additions to this game hardly seem sufficient to require such a drastic action. Frankly now that I'm finished setting up these character portraits I can hardly restrain my yawn. It was a pointless exercise in futility that offered not one single drop of gratification.

Additionally this is the end result whenever a dev team uses finished commercial code out of the box. You can control the code you write, you can never control the binaries you buy. So I think we all have to gird ourselves to discover many more incompatibilities to come.

As for how someone too impoverished to upgrade their computer can continue playing Eve Online ... ever hear of plex? It's after Christmas and before Easter. Definitely the Silly Season.

edit: and for Christ's sake could you guys at CCP do something about these character portraits? What the hell is it with the pouty lips nonsense? Third of the portraits look like they just finished sucking on a lemon, another third look constipated. With the old system we could at least do something with the faces.

If you can't afford a PC for a 2011 patch and if you don't understand the rules of high-speed evolution in technology get your bicycle and cry about the ones who ride their motorbikes like real men.

Ok Eulisees is right, maybe not on the nose, but he is right. I am not complaining, well bout anything really,but the fact is that i will not play for 4 days (4 payed days) cause ccp chose not to announce that shift in requirements 5 days ahead of deployment BY MAIL to ALL, and b4 any "i am in computers so i know things" tries to answer this pls, go to bed. I care not about any problems ccp might have. I pay for them to solve them, and the only thing i would like is some notice in advance.

Why spat out to someone who has a problem? Why you think he cannot understand the high-speed evolution? Why you think u are real man? Can you even type an answer that has no hint of elitism?

You can get a intel celeron e3300 and p5ql mobo package for under 100.

Able to support 4 gigs of ram, a pci-e card (you serioulsy should have that already anyways) and the mobo is good at general but not overkill clocking.

If you cant afford 100, go and find a better job.

I have a wife, 2 kids and I work as a sales rep for comet ( I earn like less than 25k per year.....), have a mortgage and bills to pay but i managed to GOOGLE and READ about cheap reliable hardware and got my son that combo above ^

I also love to troll but 100 is realistic and affordable by most people, if its not there normally run down junkies who have like 20 kids and expect the government to pay for them

I love real men and no softies who whine at real men who decided to leave 8 years old hardware behind. No mercy with people who want to play state of the art games on old hardware.

As far as I understood this is a CPU issue, so you don't have to buy a new PC, all you have to do is upgrade your CPU and/or motherboard and you are done. Any of those pass 2003 should do and I am sure you can find something cheap. Heck ask your friends they might have some old PC they don't use.

This really kills me...back in the day when I got this gamer pc I tried to get the beefiest MB there was yes the good old AMD cpu, it's run this game for going on 4 years nicely I might add, other than the last large patch, which rendered my Video card useless, for a couple hundred bucks I was back on line the next day. Now this cpu issue...not the same story.

The folks that are saying all you need is a newer cpu...well that might work for some MB but not all...oh sure you can get a smokin deal for a CPU & MB combo..get real...there's more to a computer than just a MB & CPU...add it up ...and if you go cheap you might be lucky and get 2 years out of it...

I think many are missing the point...we are all paying customers..a good many have multiple accounts on line at the same time...you think it's easy upgrading 3 or 4 computers...

Wonder if the reaction would be the same for those saying how easy & cheap it is to upgrade if the shoe was on the other foot..

There are two types of people out there..

Lessons>>>those that have less

Morons>>>those that have more

And I can clearly see that there are more Morons here than Lessons...

I strongly believe in Karma...and trust me what goes around comes around...

Enough about that...think maybe it's time to get an alien..

Fly safe if and when you can!!!

When dealing with older hardware it's never just about replacing the cpu + motherboard. You'll often run into incompatibilities or driver issues. You might have to upgrade the OS which can blow your budget completely right there because older hardware might not work at all with a newer OS.

And that's assuming that any particular individual has the personal skills to do the work themselves. If they have to farm out the work to someone else then they're taking a very big chance that the computer will come back at all let alone functional. And if it's the sole computer used by the entire family that could preclude upgrading at all because of the potential problems and downtime.

For you fanboys out there: seriously. shut the **** up. I've had to deal with idiots like you for more than a decade now and it never ceases to amaze me about how much of a jackass you all are. Telling people to "upgrade or GTFO" doesn't help anybody. But then again fanboys like you never do help anybody do you?

Oh come-on it's eight years old for ****s sake, that could be found in a trash container near an electronics shop. You can't just expect to be able to play an evolving game with the same load of junk forever.

This all reminds me of another game I used to play that went through a massive overhaul about 1 1/2 years ago to the CryEngine2 (Crysis-level) graphics engine. Many of my society mates never returned after the change and the population has never been the same. Many other players continue to leave the game from dissatisfaction with the lack of attention to countless bugs and unfulfilled promises. We all just wondered " When something works so well why fix it?".The company that runs the game took a hard hit from what I heard.

And I'd be willing to bet that your wife works and that you have access to company discount so as to save yourself a shed load on the expense of upgrading each and every year too......ELITSM pure and simple...if you cant afford to upgrade cos of your circumstances you shouldnt be further penalised because of the size of your wallet

Thats right 8 YEARS OLD and still working just fine.....i just want to make this absolutely clear so i dont get confused....I DO NOT NEED TO HAVE A PRETTY TOON TO GET THE JOB DONE IN THIS GAME....IT WORKS FINE WITHOUT THE TOON....IT HAS WORKED AND CONTINUED TO WORK FINE TILL SOME KNUCLLE HEAD HIT THE "SSE2 SUPPORT" BUTTON AND FORGOT TO ALLOW "SSE SUPPORT" TO BE ENABLED...IF YOU GET YOUR PC'S FROM THE BINS BEHIND ELECTRICAL STORES THEN I GUESS I AM NOT AS POOR AS I THOUGHT....BUT THAT DOESNT ALTER THE FACT THAT A LOT OF US CANNOT INCLUDE A GOOD SPEC PC INTO AN ALREADY TIGHT BUDGET....SO YOU SEE THAT YOUR INPUT IS NULL AND VOID AS YOU STILL HAVEN'T MADE A VALID POINT OTHER THAN YOU LOITER AROUND THE BINS OF THE WEALTHY....NICE ONE HOBO BOY

click on other settings - you will see, already 97.57% of the users that took part in that survey got a system that is SSE3 compatible. And buying a new mobo, cpu, memory + gfx doesn't need more than 150$. How much is a one year subscription again...?

u obviously not using steam, cuz that survey popups for steam users automatically, just your choice to take part or not. But aye Mr. Conspiracy Theory, they for sure faked that survey, I guess they get cookies for it... Rolling Eyes

Thousands, i participate every year to those and steam's client base is just huge. To participate you have to click the "send" button nothing more, unless your mouse isn't compatible with the send button technology...

I blame CCP for not letting me enjoy EvE in my rusty 486DX2@66Mhz, damnit I'm a human being!

:l

PD: I'm sorry guys, seem like Nvidia libraries or whatever files necessary for the new char creator need SSE2. Could CCP allow you to use another char creator without all he new graphics?, probably, but not immediatelly. Not sure if they want anywhay.

Well I had to come back just to see if there were more comments on this CPU issue...and sure as I'm typing this ha ha ha...

I'd like to see some one build a new system for 500 bucks running every thing I do here...my guess is it would be crash city to say the least...a new MB CPU PSU RAM video Card hard drive...$500 get serious...

I aready know there are some out there that will slam this...so here before you stick your foot in your mouth...just how many patches before you have to upgrade AGAIN??? I managed just 2 major upgrades this time...


Unfortunetly this is reality...ya I'll likely end up getting a new system...but seeing some of the comments here regarding those that can't afford to upgrade...that's just low...I find it far from funny to say the least...just kind of lets some of us know just what kind of people some of you are...

There is more to life that EVE...real life in this household comes first...and if you put this or any game ahead of real life finacial issues...you should maybe seek out some HELP!!!

If you people are really that poor then you have no business spending ~$15 a month to play a game. Seriously, you should be spending that money on school or training or something productive.

99.997% of Eve's users would rather that the game progresses visually. Sorry that they don't support a technology used when Bill Clinton was still in the White House.
