I think i must be corrupted or something, but since the new patch I crash to desktop all the time now. 6 times tonight so far and only once in the entire 6 weeks before.

Is anyone else having the same trouble? Or is it due to some corruption?

I would post PC specification and blah blah, but i realy cant be bothered to beta test.

Same problem here - I spent 90 on a new ethernet modem which solved all my CTD problems...and now the patch has basically ****ed that up.

Crashing a LOT now.

Well I have no clue what you are talking about, Ive had one CTD ever in eve and I logged right back in, only node dropped once or twice even.

OK, seems its only a few who got effected.

So, moving on...... Is there anyway to repatch to maybe fix any corruption? I have crashed 8 times now tonight, with virtualy no problems before so I am a little worried.

I'll reinstall drivers too, but i feel that reinstalling the patch might be easier.

Don't qoute me on this, but I THINK you might need to do a fresh instal of the entire game AND the patch if you suspect it was corrupt :\

Me personaly:

I have been crashing since release day. a while back patches 1052 and 1054 totaly fixed it for me.

However patch 1058 killed eve for me again...

Patch 1077 did nothing to help me.

patch 1105?

I crash differently now, not quite as much either, but I can definately feel a difference in terms of where when and how.

I'll need to play more to be sure of the causes... as it has gotten better, but it's still not perfect.

To hellmar:

I have a specific problem in that when I use the log server, the crashes almost ALWAYS lead to a BSOD instead of a CTD :(

As for the Dump files or whatever, Please post instructions on how to properly use/send them?

I heard I need to change a line in my prefs.ini to turn them on or make them ore detailed or something?

I know I have them in my Logs folder, but the files themselves are 0K in size LOL

I've had a few odd experiances tonight too. It's wierd but every time my mining buddy launched his combat drones my computer would crash. We tried it several times with the same result...

Posted - 2003.07.03 22:44:00 - [8]

Same problem here. :(
Today, after the patch I had about 6 CTD in 2 hour period. I never use to have that problem before this patch.
I tried deleting the cache but that didnt help.
I'v crashed while fighting pirates (3 times) in belt and when flying by a planet( 2-4 times).

Please do something about this, until its fixed i cant play.

REally? your not alone then! when I launch em, or use em I suffer a 50% increase in likelyhood of crashing at LEAST.

Mining with drones: higher risk of crashing.

Fighting with drones: higher risk of crashing.


very interesting.

Well I do not use any drones and im crashing to desktop every 5-10 min since the patch.

Right now its UNPLAYABLE.

having crash problems as well, every time i go into combat! whole computer decides to reboot which is incredibley annoying as while i am desperatly trying to log back on my ship is being shot to bits! only just managed to escape alive the first time and landed a hefty repair job for my effort. am i doomed to ore trucking and runing away from lowly pirates incase they shot at me and shut my computer down for the rest of my time in eve.

Thx Hellmar, I will send those files as soon as I get back form work.

Just to clarify, when I said crash to desk top, I actualy meant system failure and reboot.

I use Full Screen mode and crashed in combat situations and with drones, but always when the screen was busy with lots of things going on.

Once I had crashed once, it usualy followed that I would crash again and again each log in with only a few seconds to do something before the next crash. As soon as I warp from the area it seems to work ok again.

So, I'll try windowed mode and see if that reduces the crashes too, and drivers etc.

Btw, I use a 2.8GHz P4 with 512MD Ram and A TI4800 on XP.

And you can move the thread to the technical forum thing if needed.
