I followed the directions on here and I did indeed get the flashing black screen problem fixed.

now the only problem for me seems to be that EVE will crash when I try and make a new character. I can click on "empty slot" I can selet which race I want, I can then select which bloodline I want.

After I do that, the loading bar comes up, finishes loading and I'm left staring at the bloodline selection screen overlaying the character selection screen with no way to advance forward or backwards unless I restart the game.

What seems to be the problem now?

Indeed, I'm having the same problem. Anyone know what's up or how to fix it?

Indeed. I am much hoping that someone knows what this problem is.

I had a 14-day free trial account just before RMR came out, and I decided that I liked the game enough to start paying it. I pay and start playing last night and I get that black screen problem. Now I get that fixed but I can't actually make a character that I want, and instead am stuck with my random character I made just to experiment with the game because I can't go two steps into the character creation process without the game crashing.

I'm assuming the reason no one has discovered this yet is that not many people are making new characters. Can someone who has done this "black flashing screen" fix attempt to make a new character and tell us if you have the problem or does anyone have any solutions?

I was experiencing the issue with character creation last night. An existing character was alright, but I was crashing when attempting to create one, just before picking the name. Also on a laptop. After rolling back the resFaces.stuff file as Rantor instructed, my problem is completely gone. Yay!

This all seems a little too technical for me to try... I would go for it, but I have massive hysterical fear that I will get a virus, screw up my computer/EVE, and never be able to play again. All this "move th ebackup" and "decrompres the file" junk is just too much for a Georgia boy who just wants to log in, sit in his laZboy rocker for a good hour and advance myself vicariously through a virtual character..

Started my return to EVE 4 days ago. Here is my setup:

1.2GHZ Pentium M
Mobile Intel Express Graphics (915GM/GMS, 910GML)
Realtek HD Audio

1. Could not get past character creation without a CTD. Updated video drivers and got past character creation, but suspect that I was just lucky (read on).

2. Immediately noticed that any 'Show Info' on ship, Agent, Player, or Corp generated CTD 100% of the time; in-game mouse cursor was flickering badly; updated audio drivers.

3. Could get through character creation about 20% of the time without CTD; 'Show Info' on Agent, Player, or Corp generated CTD about 75% of time; 'Show Info' on ship generated BSOD 100% of the time; flickering in-game mouse cursor fixed.

4. Applied Rantor's fix. All is well, no more problems.

Hope this helps other VAIO users. Way to go Rantor!

Top work, stuff-file roll-back works a treat, thanks.

My work's lappy (Dell D610 with Mobile Intel 915GM graphics) would cold boot when Eve displayed Char Selection screen... yes, cold boot... hello BIOS splash and full POST info :(

You've saved me from actually doing anything productive with my time, wohoo! \o/

I experienced the CTD only school computers (Dell optiplex 260) and then on my own personal laptop (Sony VAIO PCG-K33) I experienced a complete lockup and bluescreen of death (thought they were supposed to get rid of those in XP?!?!?) Anyway, applied Rantor's fix on both machines and it worked like a charm.

Nice work Rantor :) I was having problems on my laptop Using a Mobile intel(R) 915GM/GMS,910GML Express chipset , which does not support T&L but although everything isn't perfect. It will play the game easily, without the computer restarting every time i use to - right click/show info (on a char)

So Much Appreciated YARRRR!! Thanks

All I can is "THANK YOU AND I SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OWE YOU A BEER!" Brand new HP AMD Turion 64 ML-37 2.0GHz Laptop (DV8120) almost went through the window of my Hotel room (4 week business trip) Btw CCP PLEASE FIX THIS, if microsoft is advertising about this game and anyone with a new laptop is unable to load it up you are going to loose some very good potential clients.

Once Again Rantor THANK YOU A MILLION, and if your Ever in Ontario or Alberta I owe you a VERY large beer! Very Happy

I used this patch thing but it wouldn't load any portraits so i un-installed EVE and then re-installed it. I'm having the same problem and now i can't even load my own portrait.

Devs have fixed this whole problem in the upcoming Blood update/patch (look for the 3rd bullet in 'fixed bugs' list). It is very near, just wait a little bit and everything should be fine... again.
