Hey everybody.

I have a 3 week old Mac Book Pro, and I downloaded Eve. First week, no problems, then about 3-4 days ago, the game froze. Had to restart the Mac. It hasn't done it every time I play. But today, every time I log in, I get about 1 minute of gameplay, then it freezes. and i have to restart Mac every time.

Is this an issue for other people as well? Very frustrating.

When I first started playing EVE, I had an occasional issue with freezing as well. For me, the issue was not EVE itself, but rather the CPU in my MacBook Pro (model 8,1) is overheated and is not well vented (MacBook design issue). As a simple fix, I simply dialed down the graphics detail and kept the bottom of laptop well vented; no heat-related freezes yet.

See here for information related to new MacBook Pros overheating.

Hope this helps. Neutral
