OK this is a strange and kinda hard to explain, but, my overview wont expand. I can open the SELECTED ITEMS, DRONES and GANG windows of the overview, but the actual OVERVIEW window, when I try to open it the button becomes depressed and no longer reacts to mouse clicks. Tabing to minimise and restore the Overview brings it back so it can be clicked on but again clicking on it makes it disappear. If there is a GANG or DRONE section available, clicking on OVERVIEW will just cause the other section to go over the top of it. Its like trying to expand the OVERVIEW actually collapses it further into oblivion!

Anyway, hope that makes sense, hope someone can suggest a fix. Tried Dock/Undocking and Relogging, no effect. Tried using ship with no drone bay and not in a gang, no luck.

Hit Tab once, then Tab again. Should fix it.

Hi - I had a similar problem to this that was only resolved by clearing out the eve cache folder.

I saw another thread detailing the files that should be kept, although I can't find it right now, but I did manage to copy the relevant info when i did see it Smile

The majority of files and folders in the (default directory) C:\Program Files\CCP\EVE\Cache can be removed. However, the following should not be removed, and it is a good idea to make regular backups of them in case they are lost after a CTD:

* 'prefs.ini' <- this file contains your bootup settings, resolution, password etc.

* The entire 'Settings' folder <- this directory contains your character settings for all characters, bm folders, buddylist folders, created and joined chat channels, colour settings.

* The 'bookmarkedSites.txt', 'ignoredSites.txt' and 'trustedSites.txt' files in \\CCP\EVE\cache\Browser <- these files, should you have any of them, contain EVE Browser bookmarks and settings.


Optional

The \\CCP\EVE\cache\Pictures\Portraits\ directory <- This contains all the avatars of people you've 'met' and will save time or trouble should it be kept, but it's by no means vital.

Unfortunately, in your case, I believe that you would need to remove some, if not all of the files in the 'Settings' folder. Whilst this will fix the problem, it will also remove any folders that you have created to organise your bookmarks and buddies. None of the BMs or Buddies will be removed, just the folders you created (if any) that they are sorted into. Option settings, such as screen resolution, window placement will also be lost but these can be easily setup again.

You'll probably also re-enter the game as though you had just created a character and be presented with the tutorial screens - these can be cancelled then turned off in the options.

By moving the folders to another location (create a cache backup folder on the desktop or smthg and move them into there), the next time you log in, the folders (and files within) will be recreated by eve, and this should resolve the problem.

If you wanted to, you could then try moving the original files from the settings folder in your cache backup folder back into the newly created eve\cache folder to restore your settings, though this may re-introduce the original error.

Cheers Skaffen, your a legend, problem sorted!

Through trial and error I was able to determine that removing the latest User file in the Settings folder (user_######.dat) fixed the problem. Of course it has also removed all my overview presaves and some other settings, but no choice I guess.

Thanks

Try clicking on the "Reset Windows to default position", it may solve the problem. Just an idea.
