Hi all, I am having some problems. After much messing around I finally got Eve working on my Ubuntu 7.04 and Cedega 6.0.2, but then of course Eve patched and ever since, the splash screen displays, stays there for a few mins then just closes.

I launched through the terminal instead and this is the dialog I got:

[email protected]:~$ cedega -run "Eve Online" "Play EVE"
/usr/lib/transgaming_cedega/gddb.py:24: RuntimeWarning: Python C API version mismatch for module gddb_parser: This Python has API version 1013, module gddb_parser has version 1012.

And then it terminates. From what I can see it is something to do with fonts, but I have checked the fonts and installed core microsoft fonts to the relavent directory so does anyone know what the problem could be? Thanks.

I think that the critical line is here:

It looks like thier move to Stackless Python also included some changes to the Client. I'm guessing that the client seems to get upset when there is a mismatching version of python already installed on the end user's system.

However, it is odd that it would even check since for the Windows users, most of them don't even have Python installed. I supposed that if they installed the Windows Python API that they might have a similar problem. It's hard to say.

All i do know is that I am getting the same type of problem, although my error is rather different. Unfortunately, there isn't enough space here to paste my error, so I'll put it in the next post...

Every time I update the EVE Installation on my Linux comp (Ubuntu Feisty + Wine) EVE won't run anymore...

Any hints on how I can correct / prevent this?

It is located in the \Program Files\CCP\EVE\bin\Microsoft.VC80.CRT directory. I tried moving all four files to the system32 dir in Wine and Cedega and still no luck; even added the MSVCR80.dll to the Eve settings in winecfg did not work. Though I am a noob when it comes to Linux but I am determined to get it running and stop using MS altogether.

It seems that after fixing the splash and crach bug but there is an issue with black screen.
Looks like it's a problem with the cachefolder.

Here's how I did...

Under UBUNTU Feisty and Cedega 6.0.2 it looks like this:
1. /home/***/TransGaming_Drive/Program Files/CCP/EVE/lib/
Here you will have to create copys of lib.ccp and name them lib2.ccp, lib3.ccp and so on.
Some users have reported that you might have to create as many as 20 of them... Shocked

After this is done I get past the splash and death. Smile


2. Cedega create the cache folder and settings under /home/***/TransGaming_Drive/Program%20Files/CCP/EVE/%3F%B3%3F%3F%3F%3F%3F%01%3Fu%3F%B3%3F%3F%3Fb%12/CCP/EVE/
This folder get a realy odd name, %3F%B3%3F%3F%3F%3F%3F%01%3Fu%3F%B3%3F%3F%3Fb%12 and I think that's where the client craches and I get a black screen. Crying or Very sad

This folder is recreated every time you delete it and start eve client the cache + subfolder and settings folder are recreated.

No ide why the client don't use the right folders:
/home/***/TransGaming_Drive/My Documents/EVE/cache <-- The client don't write any subfolders here!?
/home/***/TransGaming_Drive/My Documents/EVE/capture
/home/***/TransGaming_Drive/My Documents/EVE/logs

3. /home/***/TransGaming_Drive/Program Files/CCP/EVE/????VE/???? and /home/***/TransGaming_Drive/Program Files/CCP/EVE/?????????? are also recreated every time. In them are: /CCP/eve/ but no files.


Either Cedega 6.0.2 or eve client are roxaly messed up atm... ugh

Any ideas for fix for the cache and settings folder?

I'm not completely sure why that's happening to you. I will say that using cedega 6.02 on a fast machine I do NOT see ANY of these issues. I would uninstall cedega AND eve (completely), and try to reinstall the cedega client cleanly and then a fresh install of EVE. (This resolved ALL of the issues a corpmate of mine was having recently.--something was corrupted in the cedega install.)

I DO see the lib.ccp issue while testing on an older slower machine, but 6-8 copies of lib.ccp in the lib folder fixed it.

No issues on:
x2 3800
SATA hdd (300gig)
nvidia 7950 GT (512meg)
2 gig corsair memory (128bit dual channel config).
cedega 6.02 + EVE

lib.ccp issues on:
2400XP
EIDE 80gig WD hdd
fx5200 nvidia (256meg ram)
1gig ram
cedega 6.02 + EVE
---same issue with lib.ccp occurs with wine .9.41 on this machine.--

My guess is memory timing/hdd access times causing the problem. Faster the machine, less occurrance of these problems.

hmm no issues on 1.7Ghz ever
not after full reboot=empty cache nor repeated starting

so it's going to stay a problem until someone with that problem manages to debug it or find the regression in wine IF an old version was working with the current EVE client

on the other side would CCP be able to regression test EVE to see what change on their side resulted in the breakage if they have someone in the company with that problem

I agree there. I'd never have seen the "lib" issue at all, but dug out the old "writing/guest" machine just to see, as its an older slower box. On the x2 3800 box, its been smooth as silk via .9.41 and cedega 6.02. (I'd say even better than the windows users in my corp, as I've had fewer crashes/disconnects/lag in addition to very decent FPS than they have had.)

hmmm maybe you could try the linux/eve/cedega install on the old machine in the new machine or in a chroot (backup first) on the faster machine
as it's not wine, not cedega and most likely not the hardware so only the distribution and package/kernel versions remain as difference

Actually the packages/distro is 'exactly' the same. using ubuntu 7.04 (updated to current, and using the 'generic' kernel that comes with ubuntu.) The only differences 'tween the old and the new is the hardware. (ide vs. sata, xp2400 vs x2 3800, and older mo-board vs. nforce4).
Driver wise its latest nvidia binaries. I've tried the trial version of crossover on the old box since last post, and it too requires multiple "lib" copies for EVE to work.

Settings for eve via cedega are duplicated, and the registry entry changes for EVE via .9.41 are exactly the same as the new machine. (all I change are the video settings to reflect memory onboard card and pbuffer settings.)

What REALLY surprised me was how decently EVE actually does RUN on the old machine. Granted FPS is much lower, but its still playable. (about 1/2 fps of the new machine, but for an industrial alt or empire hauler, this type of box would still be more than adequate.)

I tested fps at a planet without other ships around and my 1.7ghz laptop had about half the fps of my windows amd 3500+

need to get a new pc soon anyway

So are there any kernel level performance tweaks that would help run eve? I am hitting approx 50 - 60 fps in station, in space about 30. But when I drag the camera around it drops drastically depending on what I am doing.

I am thinking that this would probably be a scheduling issue due to the fact I am running a dual core. I think if eve/wine/cedega can be given a more real time access to the system that it should resolve these drop outs and up the fps a bit. I was reading an artacal about ET:Quake Wars for Linux where carmack had made suggestions on what patches and such should be enabled in the kernel but I have misplaced them.. Found them =)

You need a low latency kernel for good performance (this applies to both client and server installs). Mostly, make sure your kernel configuration has CONFIG_HZ_1000=y. You should also enable other low latency desktop settings, such as the various preemption capabilities.



http://www.osadl.org/Realtime-Preempt-Kernel.kernel-rt.0.html

I will be doing the above when I get home from work tonight and hopefully will see a performance boost..

P.S Don't forget to run hdparam.

Eve needs massive main memory bandwidth. If you are using a P4 motherboard then this will be your problem.

I think problems with dual-core are more obvious than just bad performance. Things like a regular stutter and timings going screwy. But that said, you should be launching Wine/Cedega with "taskset 0x02 cedega" or whatever.

I doubt that will help for Eve. Eve is too slow to notice the diff and runs as a single OS thread anyway.

I have a feeling this bug has something to do with the wine linker and filename enumeration, other games give similar issues regarding resource allocation and calls.

hi all
i also have problems :(

system is IBM Thinkcentre S50
i810 on-board graphics card
1gb ram ( not gfx memory, just regular memory ;) )

im running opensuse 10.2 with wine 0.9.41
latest eve client downloaded a day or so ago

i extracted the files in the RedistD3DXOnly.exe on my work computer so now i have the d3dx9_30.dll but i don't know where it should be copied to .. i tried windows/system32 and several other folders in the program files/eve directories

eve gives me the splash screen and the music starts but i just get a black rectangle in the middle of my screen which i am guessing is where the login page should appear

i copied my Fonts folder from my work's computer over to .wine/drive_c/windows/fonts so all the standard windows fonts (incl arial and tahoma) are present ...

this is the output in the terminal when i run eve.exe:-

i know the gfx 'card' is not the best but it runs games such as Unreal Tournament 2004 just fine.

i posted on the main winehq website http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?iVersionId=8291 and the only suggestion i had was to drop back from wine 0.9.43 to version 0.9.41. i have done this and it has the exact same issue

can anyone please help?? i have been really looking forward to playing this game but im spending all my free trial time getting it working under linux lol !!

(oh in case anyone is wondering, a friend who recommended the game to me registered my account & player to allow me to post here !!) i have no other computers and do not want to have to install windows, not just because of the expense of the OS but also having to loose space from my otherwise perfectly fine linux installation !!!

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!!

ok, so making some progress ..
i un-installed wine and deleted the .wine folder and subfolders; installed wine v0.9.41 and tried again

black rectangle :(

installed direct x from threelights.de
black rectangle :(

copied the fonts folder from my work computer
i now get the license agreement but in a few seconds, it dumps me back to the desktop :(

I can't seem to get past the Character Selection screen... all characters are empty. Also, none of my setting as persistent. Every time I load the game, it shows me the EULA, and the intro box is checked. when Imake changes in the settings screen (change resolution, etc), it is always back to defaults next time I run the game.... I changes the TransGaming_drive properties to 777 thinking it was a write permission issue, but this had no effect (and has probably made my home dir rwx to any user...).....

Any help?

Using cedega, wine was hopeless.

well i think ive sorted out my problem; i downgraded to wine 0.9.41, re-installed eve, installed direct x and copied the fonts folder from a windows computer (at work, shhhhh!) to the drive_c/windows/fonts .. now it loads to the char selection screen but then crashes .. the problem i have is that the gfx card is a built-in intel i810 .. this is where the problem lies; the card is not supported by Eve lol !!

So a trip to ebay and hopefully in a day or so ill be the proud owner of an FX5200 w/128mb ram which IS compatible, and should let me enjoy the last few hours of my free trial lol !!!Shocked

Woot... Installed Ubuntu 7.04 on a new Abit AN9 32X w/AMD X2 5600+, 2MB. System has a Nvidia 7900GS. Followed the directions at Starhunt.com, and wham... worked.

My issues I discovered so far; (not many):

- Have not got sound to work (Can live with that).

UPDATE: FIXED!. Workaround is "Start something with Audio before starting EVE".

- "Sometimes" the mouse cursor seems maybe 1 or 2 pixels off.
- In the character sheet; when you mouse hover over a skill you are training it wont tell you how much time left.

UPDATE: Now it works, dunno... but not complaining..

Overall performance is very good (Faster than my other Windows box, but admittingly not quite as good as a configuration).

No Cedega; just wine and Ubuntu.

I'll keep playing.... and hopefully can finally say, "I'm Microsoft Free" (I *refuse* to drop down $200 for Vista!!)

FHJ.

Fresh install of Debian etch + some unstable packages yesterday.

cpu: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3500+
cpu_ghz: 2.21
memory: 2012
videocard_manufacturer: NVIDIA Corporation
videocard_type: GeForce 7800 GTX/PCI/SSE2
videocard_ram: 256
agp_aperture_size: 508
videocard_driver_version: 2.1.1 NVIDIA 100.14.11 <-- Latest from Nvidia.com
soundcard: NVidia CK804 with ALC850 at irq 22
soundcard_driver: ALSA Version 1.0.13
machine_bitness: 64
kernel: 2.6.18-5-amd64 <-- 64bit, yep, got it to work.
x_version: Xorg Version 7.1.1
distro: Debian 4.0 <-- Not Ubuntu! Twisted Evil
GUI version: 6.0.2
Cedega engine version: 6.0.2 <-- Latest and greatest

Two monitors: 24" Samsung Flat Panel + 22" Samsung Flat Panel.

I'm running two copies of EVE (with sound!) at ~75 FPS (both!) in station. I get about 180 FPS at char select.

The latest NVidia drivers from Nvidia.com work perfectly. Don't mess around with the nv driver or the "non-free" ones from apt. Just download the file from Nvidia.com and install from a console. When it asks to modify your xorg.conf say yes (it makes a backup).

Just a quick question, regarding 2 copies and cedega. How are you running these? Are you specifying video memory in the properties section for each client? Windowed (eve fs -- cedega window?)

I have a very similar rig (7950GT 512meg ram) ubuntu 7.04 but trying to run the second copy via cedega runs into some serious system drag, or just flat crashes the cedega session(s). (running the 2nd copy in wine with primary under cedega works better on my system.)

Could it be that todays update (36191) broke wine support? I just updated and the game crashes after the splash screen :(
Trying to download the full client and re-install now.
I'm using wine-0.9.40 since it worked well before the update.

Same here, after update crashes after splash. Was running with 0.9.44 well (except for the occasional GL_OUT_OF_MEMORY).

Setting audio=0 in prefs.ini allows me to get to the login screen. Still waiting for TQ...
