..the game is now broken and no longer works for me.

"Outdated Graphics Card Detected
Shader Model 3 (SM3) support is needed to run this game. Click OK to close the game client."

I'm not even given the option to turn off CQ, Eve has decided I can no longer play. What were we supposed to do here if we couldn't afford to upgrade and keep pace with your Incarna dreams, CCP?

I'm sorry I couldn't keep to your hardware upgrade schedule.

MBP 2.3 Core 2 Duo, 4 years old. Yesterday I was at least able to run the game with lo-rez textures, I didn't NEED a SM3 card to play internet spaceships. Now the game won't even start any more. Well done, guys. What did you test this on? We know you guys consider the Mac client a big pain in the a$$, but did you give this more than a passing glance?

What's your advice for the users you just kicked to the curb?

The same thing happened to me this morning and sad part is ı recently paid for 2x 60day time code so ı guess ı quit the game with wasted money.

I have cancelled my subscription due to unplayable game.

As above why can't they let us turn things off THAT WE DIDN'T WANT OR NEED!!

I am more annoyed that they must have known that System requirements would change and never said anything about it.

I noticed that during the patch they have amended the System requirements on the website which means THEY MUST HAVE KNOWN.

A workable replacement for my Imac will cost about 1600 which is a lot of money and I feel no thought has been given, once again, to the mac clients

Years I have been playing this game, without problem or fail. And now this?

CCP, why do you not want me to play this game anymore?

How do you go from working completely fine to cannot play at all in ONE update. No heads up, no "Well, older computer users might want to take a look at the system requirements for the update, because it may render EvE unplayable."

I still want to play, but EvE isn't worth buying a new computer.

The SM3 problem is bad, even more so some mac users and some all in one pc users that changing the graphics card is not possible. Yea I know CCP warned people but not everybody has the $$$ to upgrade or buy a new computer. One day running fine and the next not running at all. I can't even get into the game, the patching messed up my client so now I need to re-download and re-install :( It's not been CCP finest hour.

I also feel for you guys,i just had to upgrade my mac's graphics card and ram and luckily Eve now plays fine, but it has probably cost
me wot a dirt cheap laptop off ebay would have cost me to upgrade,

tho, i am glad i dont buy laptops and always make sure my hardware (is at least supposed to be) upgradable!

Note - Computers u can upgrade = good!

Computers you cant upgrade, u are always going to have to replace it at some point, this is your point, CPP got ya tackled!!!

No, you can't haz my stuff, unless you have a pilot with Gallente Titan trained

That being said, IF you can figure out a way for me to login the friggin game from MY laptop WITHOUT using bootcamp or winblows, then I will gladly send you 2 Billion ISK. If it is a good fix and works well, maybe 5 Billion.
