Ditto: I think Lingorm has been out of action for a bit. So, the testing has gone into limbo for the moment.

We are running some formal tests at the moment.

We will soon be making the client available for public testing on one of the test servers.

Will update you with dates as I know them.

Should we mac people hold off upgrading to leopard for testing?

Good point! Although I'm not expecting Leopard to become available within the next few weeks ; hopefully the client will :-)

This both Linux and OS X? Also will 10.5 be supported or will it work?

I'm looking forward to playing EVE on Linux with an official client for that platform.

So I wouldn't mind if a beta release were made available soon to play on Tranquility, even if that means living with a number of glitches for a while... :)

I did install a linux partition today, and cedega ran an eve just fine - well, one installation of eve.

I have two accounts - when I fire up a second eve, the framerate on the second one drops below usable.

A question to those who are lucky beta testers: does transgaming port cover multi-accounts? I don't care about eye-candy, I do care if framerates will f***up missions and stuff ^^

You can add me to the list of Apple users that are excited to try EVE on Leopard. Just installed it last night on my macbook pro. I'm looking forward to not needing an entire partition and separate boot just to play EVE.

Keep up the good work guys!

Cheers,

Ok. SO my quesiton is this - If they are making a 'mac' client is it going to be tied to the gui or run on the underlying OS? Reason being is that mac os is FreeBSD with a stupid gui so in theory any client made to run on mac should be able to run on a FreeBSD system.....

That would bring joy to me and be the absolute only benefit mac will have done for the world.

Nevermind, just read the thread and found out this won't work on non-Intel Macs.

Not so good :(

Not exactly true... it actually works the other way around. Something works for linux or BSD - can be recompiled TO the mac. This is from Wikipedia:

"Mac OS X is based on UNIX, most software packages written for BSD or Linux can be recompiled to run on it. Projects such as Fink, MacPorts and Pkgsrc provide pre-compiled or pre-formatted packages. Since version 10.3, Mac OS X has included X11.app, Apple's version of the X Window System graphical interface for Unix applications, as an optional component during installation."

And yes - OS X is BASED on Unix... however - the NUMEROUS changes to the code would really make what you are proposing not quite possible. Willing to be proven wrong however.

The good news though?
They are working on a linux client as well - there is documentation somewhere as to which versions will be supported.

Think about it a bit. Full games like Eve don't use the desktop GUI at all. What they need is 3D hardware rendering access. With which they then draw their own GUI. There is no getting round this driver requirement in any sensible manner.

To answer your question, if FreeBSD has the required 3D drivers available then you will have no problems running Eve via Wine. Wine's source auto-build system is superb! There is also prebuilt FreeBSD version of Wine.

Wine Downloads and Build/Install instructions

Have fun.

Count me in on this project!!! Eve is the only thing keeping a copy of windows on any of my systems. Oh yeah, also been in software testing and development for ~6 years...=)

Hearing that a Mac client was coming... plus the new graphics update, made me renew my EVE subscription. Feels good to be back and I hope I get to participate in the testing! :)

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm quite sure EVE won't run on PPC's.

Great news about the beta, as a macpro user it will be great to erase my windows drive ....oops crysis demo just came out, bootcamp stays :D

Seriously the ability to use OSX while eve'ing will be such an amazing "upgrade". Almost as good as trinity. Better maybe. Oh man Ill be able to use ichat video to direct d'troops!

gotta start looking for that starwars holo effect for ichat!

So, Mac OS X support is going live next Tuesday. Anyone in closed beta has any updates for us?

Sign me up for Beta Testing. I have two Intel Macs at home and a fleet of Macs at the office.

And, please, please, please keep us informed with anything, even speculation as to the beta release dates etc.

I've played eve under another Wine Client for OSX, Works however there are a few glitches. I'm concerned performance won't be that great. We might crash or get booted when there is too much going on. I guess we have to wait and see.
