I paid for a portrait swap a month ago and on every Eve player and every eve area including all the kill boards n such it's the old portrate.

I paid for the change a month ago and I realize it says the swap may take a bit...just how long is a bit and what did I pay for?

Thanks to anyone from CCP who can help me out as the in game petition system does not work for me for some strange reasion. (says account already exists and wont let me send...in the process of making 2 new E-mail accounts to try and fix this problem)

Thanks for any help you can give me CCP.

It can take months to change on the forums, but it should be done very quickly in game. If your still showing your old portrait in game, try clearing the cache. It worked for me.

the portraits are stored in the capture folder(eve/capture/), that means that who ever wants to see your new picture, but he has clicked you ingame at least once before the change, he will still see the old picture, thats because every time somebody shows info on somebody else then pictures are retrieved and get stored in capture folder

the only solution for this is your friends to delete the capture folder in the eve folder, you have to do the same as well, once you do that all in game new ppl info you they will see the new picture and not the old one

in forum tho i have no idea how this works, i guess that every time they back up tranquility they update the forum database as well

Too bad that's not true. I cleaned the cache on my 2nd account and it still shows the old pic when I click show info.

The guys saying 9 months kinda irks me. I kinda get a little perturbebed when I spend money for a service and don't recive such service after I paid. I will hope that will not be the case.

Any how it doesn't look like I will be getting an answer so I am going to try my new E-mails.

Let you know what I find out.

not sure if this is a different topic....

but...

how do i change my portrait on the forums? In other words, I deleted my old character (from 2 yrs ago)....have just returned and made a new character....how do I get that character's portrait on the forums?

Do I need to play 10 dollars to do that? I am posting under my current character, but there is no portrait, just an "!" ....

Any help?

Thanks

No, it takes a few weeks for the server to update it... just be patient.
