Really, there's still people out there with PCs older than 8 to 9 years REALLY... To say you cant afford to upgrade your PC also means you cant afford the 11-13$ subscription fee. If you PLEX that's different but for a majority of players, they had to sub for a while. The money you spent on the sub you could have saved up or you can SUSPEND your account (if its running on a sub right now) for a while and save up for a new PC... EVE isn't going anywhere, not like it'll just disappear.

$200-300 for a new PC, $100-200 for a used PC... these cheap machines can play EVE just fine.

All these people that don't have SSE2 CPUs are all getting angry when CCP is improving the game but you guys don't to upgrade. Like previous posters said its an 8+ year old technology, you've had plenty of time to upgrade.

...

And again and again and again...
Amazing lack of math skills. Of course, you can stop playing EVE for a YEAR and save for a somewhat faster PC, which will have become obsolete after a year.
Is it really so difficult to see the significant difference in 'budget load' between a monthly expense of $15 and a monthly expense of $15 plus a one-time load of 10-40 times that sum?
My question goes to every one of you: What is your problem?
You know, you should really brace for impact. An even more serious emotional crisis than your current one will come when CCP fixes the issue in a few days so that all the worthless bums can smudge the clear skies of New Eden again.

Also interesting to consider: Unequal distribution and impact of offline time. There are small corps who might be completely offline now when they mainly consist of users of older computers. Or consider an important CEO of a big corp who uses PLEX all the time and uses an old computer. A CEO who is now offline.

It would be too risky for CCP to run the PLEX system if that were the case. Remember that someone has to buy the PLEXes with real money. ;) A player becoming ingame-rich and thus not having to pay account fees anymore means no income loss for CCP, because someone pays for that player's PLEXes.
EDIT: Hm, I forgot that you can buy PLEX with ISK, too. So I guess CCP figured out that it will balance out more or less.

Are you all barking mad or just plain insane? Read the previous entries and you will discover that a decent gaming pc in the UK costs anywhere from £500 lvl entry to whatever you can afford....for those that know no other currency thats around USD$750+......I spose this is the reason why you ppl led us all into a depression that the rest of us are fighting to survive atm...on the basis of "Oh, my mortgage is how much? It's ok, I'll just write my bad debts off and someone else can pick up the tab"

To a lot of us, this is the only entertainment that we can just about afford, so to have to cough up yet more money so that I can have a pretty looking toon is unjustifiable....what else was the update for if not that

£500 really, I just found a PC for £250 (400$, so like $100 more than what I quoted thank VAT which we dont have at most sales tax which varies) in the UK... BTW since you didn't get what I meant about the PLEX I mean there are those out there that do that, not every one does had you read it correctly. Im not trying to be rude but your logic of 'I cant afford a new PC' just doesn't follow through if you can afford a 11-15$ a month game. Also to the guy that stated a PC is obsolete after a year, no because if that was true then those who have 8+ year old PCs wouldn't been able to play EVE until now. A cheap PC works for EVE, media, office, not enthusiast/extreme gaming.

Again Im not trying to be rude or put anyone down its just what I stated above. Sorry if you get offended but it wasn't intentional...

OK, so you still need help understanding this, and getting a little insight into matters foreign to you.

Originally by: RogueSniper1

This shows that you apparently don't have to live on a very tight budget. The kind of budget where saving any money is unaffordable luxury. It would help if you actively read up about cases like that, but maybe a somewhat unelegant analogy helps understanding: You're like someone saying to a bum that if only he would stop spending money on alcohol, he could drag himself out of the misery with the money saved. Would you say that to a bum? If yes, than 'cold society' has had a profound influence on your thinking and kept your thoughts away from all things deeply social.
If you're not willing to gain more insight on this, then just believe me that there are so many very different social conditions and individual life situations that we can be very surprised when we learn about them.
So when someone can just spare the $15 a month for some recreational time, every month the budget will end with nearly zero. So where would a new computer fit in there, hm? And what else could you do if you saved the $15? Maybe buy slightly higher quality food, that's all.

You didn't consider that we're talking about age of technology, so 8 years ago an SSE2 computer was top notch, high end, the 'new stuff'.
So you can buy another computer for the fancifully advertised low prices here, which will represent only a small technology leap. That one might be obsolete after a year when the next kind of hardware requirement is updated. So even if you take the budgetary hardship (if you can) of buying another computer, you will always lag behind the 'technology game'.
So to have a computer that will work with EVE in a year or two, you would go for the Core2Duo category and whatever graphics hardware is currently considered second-newest. Because, you know, Core2Duo, too, has become quite old already. Has been around for some years. Could soon be 8.

Owledge....Ty for actually catalising the point I was so miserably trying to get across...Not all of us pay or play in the same fashion so it is impossible for sweeping generalisations to be made and think that there is only one rule of financing ones lifestyle choices. In essence it is childlike to beleive that there is a "One size fits all" approach in here when there is so obviously not

As ive said in another post on this very subject. you pay 2 things that you could cut down on, Your ISP rate to connect to the web in the first place, and your eve online subscription. stop complaining about a company upgrading its software to meet today's requirements.

As also stated in a previous post. its like complaining to Microsoft that your xbox can not play xbox 360 games.

This is the pc gaming world, its constantly evolving, when in 8 years time you need to upgrade again, the hardware you will be buying will be worth the same as what the current 8 year old hardware is worth.

And if you stop playing eve to save and just buy higher quality foods with it, who's problem is that?

and the analogy of saying to a alcoholic on the street to stop drinking, is completely out of context, eve is not addictive and damaging to your health like alcohol is. also you already enjoy one thing that the bum does not, a house. get over your "im hard up attitude, put that to good use in the "im going to save and upgrade category"

And before you start, last time eve was upgraded i did exactly what I'm telling you to do here. stop paying for eve, put some will power in, and save for a upgrade. i did and i was in the same boat as you were back then. you have no excuse just like i didn't then, eve is a luxury not a right.

PC gaming has always and will always be about upgrading to keep up with gaming advances. i do not expect a company to stay in the stone age, and stay faithful to older hardware, its always been like this with pc gaming and if you believe im wrong. then you are very much mistaken.

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


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


Comet dont sell hardware mate, they sell peripherals and overpriced internet browsing laptops as well as **** TV's and washing machines.

You can HONESTLY get a e3300 and p5ql mobo for under £100....

Well around 120-130 with a p5ql but this here

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/INTEL-E3300-2GB-DDR3-ASROCK-G31M-S-MOTHERBOARD-BUNDLE-/400188859676?pt=UK_Motherboards_CPUs&hash=item5d2d1d651c

Is enough to run eve, just dont overclock with that motherboard and your house wont burn down.

For the record my wife doesent work lol, women working? can you imagine it.

I currently own 2 PC's, my expensive one and my cheap one.

My cheap one is e3300, p5ql mobo, 9600GT 4gig of RAMbo DDR2 (lol 13£ a stick) a £35 psu 650w.

All running in a nice big spactious case all for under £250, this is the one my family uses. Its fast enough to run eve, well fast enough and loads of other games as well. But all YOU need is a mobo and cpu upgrade, reason for the mobo upgrade is if you have money in the future you can upgrade the CPU further without having to replace the mobo again.

My expensive one I wont even get into.

put £20 away a week, do overtime and in 3-4 weeks time you have a PC in par with todays average standards.

Intereseting concept ... what's paid overtime.. haven't heard that since .. um the early 80's.

Anyway, hardware is just one issue, so you can put together a cheap Athlon64 or pentium4 PC for about UKP180.. now about that OS... yep the old one .. no you really need Windows7 or at least one with 64bit support...this is the one CCP didn't know about..
which is why the Eve client no longer runs AT ALL on my Win2K machine... and once you replaced the OS (shall we say UKP80 minimum) you'll have to replace all the rest of your software that no longer runs....

You have no idea mate, please stop talking.

Eve does not need the 64bit version of windows to run. 64bit isn't used that much as the moment anyway. all it is - is extra instructions to utilise your ram better, hence why eve installs into programfiles(x86) folder on windows 7 x64 ultimate and windows vista x64.

Just get windows xp, its based on windows 2k and you will still be able to use everything your using now.

god the lack of knowledge from people who have GOOGLE at their finger tips is frightening.

Also, a pc that will quite happily run eve can be had second hand for £70 to £100, for a full system including monitor / keyboard and mouse, dvd drive and a half decent video card, hell you can pick up a decent pci-e video card now for under £40 and that's brand spanking new.

meh fecking kids nowwa days, haven't got a clue about shopping around, haven't got a clue about using google, haven't got a clue in general.

As for over time, im sure if you asked your boss for it, he would quite happily let you work longer hours for a few extra penny's.

Would you ask Microsoft to stop developing the next xbox because your current one wont be able to play the games? how about complaining to the tv manufacturers who are now making 3dtv because your current one cant handle 3dtv? seriously if you cant upgrade stop playing PC games.

Oh wow the amount of butthurt people in this thread is unreal.

Do you see console gamers complaining when a new console comes out and there's a new game only for that console? No you don't, because this is how technology advances. Old technology is phased out to make way for faster and more complex calculations.

All you guys need is a cheap AMD AM3 processor, motherboard and RAM.

Now stop moaning.

Whilst there have been many positive and negative responses to this situation I do still get the over-riding feeling that this was an unaceptable situation made worse by the fact that CCP had shed loads of time to say something and failed to do so
Why?
Who knows
The fact still remains that this has happened and its not for lack of employment that some of us do not have access to the required amount of rl money...the fact that we don't should not be used as a callous way of excluding older but still perfectly viable and operational systems
Can anyone honestly say that compiling a *.lib file differently has made the lag any better or worse or the general gameplay any better or worse because from what I have seen in here from the general "I've got a problem with *.*" entries it would appear that its a lot worse
So you tell me, if what has replaced the functioning set-up that preceeded this abortion of an up-date what was the point?
We are all in here to have some fun in our off-time and I truly feel sad for those that say things like "It's only USD$2-300 for a mobo and stuff...it maybe that much in the land of the free but everywhere else in the world has to pay real money...so whatever it is you guys pay, the numbers stay the same but the currency changes and when it does, USD$2-300 becomes Sterling£320-£500...and thats for a bog standard machine that most probably wont survive the next genius' idea of not hitting the right button when ordering the next *.lib file to be compiled
When replying try to have some comprehension beyond the bounds of your own selfish wasnts and needs for those that are less fortunate FFS

As a poster showed, you can get a low end system for $170, that equates to about £170-£200. I know I can build a system for £300 that will run most games on med-high at 1680x1050 which is overkill for EVE. £500 is an overestimate for a bare-bones system, especially in comparison to what you had before.

CPUs being outmoded are very rare in the life cycle of software and in this day the P3 and Athlon XPs are the current outmodes for most modern software (even more-so when you consider how terrible they are). EVE was created in 2000-2002 way before most other modern software so has the problem of being in development in between a big shift in hardware.

No, it was becasue there were so few people using an outmoded system that it was deemed unnecessary to attempt to fix what would eventually become an inevitability anyway

An instruction set change doesn't 'fix' 'lag'. Graphical and Network lag is never fixed with this (they are 2 completely seperate problems) Often instructions set improvements help you accomplish things more efficiently/accurately or increase the ability of the processor or make it easier to program on them. These differences are rarely seen in modern software as they have more critical bottlenecks than processor efficiency.

Britain operates still under £1 = $1 in hardware.

And whats to stop other, non-game, software developers from stopping support on inefficient hardware because it slows their development up having to test under such insignificant systems? Rather than worrying about EVE stopping support worrying about everyone else turning around and stopping support for it. Eventually it will happen.

Shut the hell up honestly, I run eve on a Windows vista 32bit, always have and always will for this particular PC.

Why the **** would you spend 150-180 on an athlon64 or Pentium4 Pc when you can get a Pc with the new Celeron cores (completely new architecture from the old ones, they are actually a decent CPU for people with very little money) for the same price if not less.

Also I do not see why CCP had to warn you that a game patch, in 2011 is going to be "upgraded" (lol) to SSE2....technology thats been around for nearly 8 years.....

I have an old AMD 5400+ and Nforce 4ma mobo I can sell you for like £40....i can easily setup a private ebay listing and also helps me get rid of the stupid thing.

Obviously you are talking to me. I am British and the £1=$1 means the rate for Electronics (not the actual currency rate), meaning that what the americans pay for hardware we pay the same number just with a different symbol.

And our currency is really weak at the moment, due to the fact the exchange is 1.6 rather than 1.8+. The Chinese buy exclusively in dollars and the Americans did not steal the war, the Russians won.

Fine words from the "Man" who still lives at home with his single mommy and who sells drugs to kids as a sideline....$1=£1...are you off your **** mate....our currency is way stronger as it has been since you ppl cane up with the dollar on average the exchange has always hovered at $1=£1.6 and the only reason why you have the international currency, till the Chinese get it, is because you stole that privelege from the Brits during the war


Wow, read my edit, ****tard. I don't live at home, and my mother is DEAD, thankyouverymuch. I don't do drugs, nor do I sell them (all part of managing finances BETTER, not worse). If I can afford a halfway decent machine with my finances, then you can too.
So once again…STOP WHINING.

*EDIT: The title of this thread is very applicable…because everyone complaining about having to upgrade their CPU is spouting a load of crap.

when you come out with assanine comments like save or manage your money better....is it any more or less offensive when I rebutt with drug references....thats right....eaually offensive....you are making judgement calls when you are neither required or qualified to talk about someone elses financial state so until such time keep this convo to the subject in hand

Watch how a bunch of people will come in and start telling you how you should stop being a cheapass and go buy a better PC cause yours is ANCIENT. That's what they told me when I complained that my laptop's video card could no longer run this thing after that annoying update. I felt so betrayed.. So insulted... : (

Wake up man... NO ONE CARES. You don't like? Go quit. Go cry. Whatever. Don't forget to shut the door on your way out. No one will miss ya. CCP doesn't care, and most people don't care either. See that is why eve is so "good". (not sure if good is the right word in this case) It teaches you REAL LIFE lessons, because a lot of what is happening in EVE happens in real life. It is just as tough and merciless, and good at pointing out your weak sides.

EVE sometimes makes me almost want to cry...

Eve managed to:

1)Point out that I have unstable nerves. How I stress over petty things.
2)Showed me that I am an uneducated man, and what is more important, it showed me how important it is to be educated in today's world.
3)Showed me that I suck at BASIC math. And how much it sucks to suck at math.
4)Allowed me to see how much of a mistake it was not to learn programming when I was younger. How many years I wasted for nothing.
5)Showed me how I cant manage my time. Showed me how antisocial I am.

EVE (in some ways) contributed to me:

1)Coming back to college, getting a job.
2)Starting to work on myself and many aspects of my life.
3)Pay attention to things happening outside of my little comfort zone/bubble I have been living in all my life.
4)Perceiving myself and other people differently....

And I only told you a little... I can keep going and going...


EDIT: Oh ****.. As I was writing this, people already came in and said exactly what I told you they would say. Those damned pricks...







That's heart man


btw - I love the title and the various comments about butt hurt -p

I took no offense. I just laughed…again…at how stupid you're being. Well, should you manage to actually rectify your PC problem and log back into EVE, you still won't really be able to do anything but spin your ship in station…because every time you undock, I (and likely many others) will be there to relieve you of your ship & clone.

managing your money better is neither offensive nor jailworthy however.

as to your financial state, you gave us enough information (i.e. im too poor to play eve and upgrade hardware) to allow everyone with a eve login to make judgments on it. if you dont want people giving you advice on financial information, dont ***** how you cant afford ****.
