Ok, I have an old crappy computer that used to play eve, approximately one year ago. Not sure what expansion pack was out then, but i know it worked fine and I had no problems with it.
My computer is an intel pentium 4 cpu, 2.4ghz, with 1.0 gig of RAM. My video card is a EVGA GeForce 6200 with 512mb of video ram.
I know this is on the low side of the system requirements but it _should_ work, and used to work fine. I quit playing for a year and tried to load it up recently on this computer.
I reinstalled Eve, had to use the manual install as the online install didn't work. Manual install seemed ok, then I went to load up the game, it would show the splash screen and access the HD for about 10 or 15 seconds, then the splash screen would dissapear and the game file would stop accessing the hard disk. Task manager still shows Exefile.exe running. Waiting any amount of time doesn't seem to help.
Since then, I've done a fresh install of Windows XP, installed service pack 3, updated it to the latest windows files. Formatted the HD as well so no old eve files could possibly be lingering around.
I've reinstalled the original chipset and drivers that the computer came with, with their latest drivers. I've got the latest nvidia drivers as well.
Ran another install of eve, this time the online downloader works ok. Tried to boot it up and same problem.
Ran the log server, but the log file is way too big to paste in here, not sure if i can attach it but I will email it to anyone who wants to look at it.
Thanks for any help.
