A (hopefully) new player posted this message to the BattleClinic boards. I'll post the link over there. Any help?

Here's the BC link: http://www.battleclinic.com/forum/index.php/topic,13324.msg59875.html#msg59875

"I'm tripping up on the mother-loving CHARACTER CREATION. Specifically the name-choosing bit.

I'm doing this on a Mac, obviously with the latest build. The attached file is a screenshot of where I'm stuck right now. I'm kinda confused, because I click "Check Availability" and NOTHING HAPPENS. Regardless of what I put in. Even if I just mash some keys and check, NOTHING. And I don't see a continue button or anything, and I'm so confused. Am I missing something? Is there something else I have to click? Is something screwed up? Please help, thank you"


Thanks folks.

Bumping to try to get this noticed among the million "Oh no servers are down" threads.

The "Create Character" button just isn't appearing, it seems.

Maybe it's because the Servers are... down? Shocked

It was a problem before the servers went down.

I can confirm this exists and happens to Mac users. i have a Mac-using friend I'm trying to get into EVE, and he cannot create a character because exactly this happens.

She's made her character and is in the game now, and we seem to found what the problem is.

I know that I (using Windows client) will get disconnected after clicking "Check Availability" if I take too long to make my character. It seems she was experiencing the same phenomenon, but with the Mac client's not noticing when it loses connection, it just seems like it's doing nothing at all.

Ishina: Tell your friend to try going through the character creation faster - maybe take a screenshot of the appearance he likes, and then use that to create a character quickly.

Passed it on, he'll try it later. I'll give an update.
